How Many Milligrams of CBD Oil Should I Take Daily?

How many milligrams of CBD oil should I take daily? It is difficult to pinpoint an exact milligram amount of CBD oil to take per day because each person’s body interacts differently with the compound and each person’s reasons for taking it are unique. Quantities of 200-300mg were given to epileptic patients, whereas anywhere between 2.5-25mg were administered to treat pain in preclinical trials. Dosages as high as 1,500mg were tolerated by patients in one study.

However, a generally accepted starting point is 10-20mg of CBD per day. See how your body responds and increase or decrease milligrams to get the result you’re looking for. Add up or down by 5mg to get just the right amount for your specific wants and needs.

It is always best to start at a low amount, see how your body responds, and increase or decrease based on need or desired effect.

Because of the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), and the fact that our bodies produce their own cannabinoids (CBD and THC are cannabinoids produced by the Cannabis plant), we are very receptive to cannabinoids that we consume. Reactions can be mild or strong, so starting at a low quantity of CBD is recommended.
