As everyone is aware, CBD oil is sold in this country as a food supplement and suppliers are not permitted to give medical advice. This also relates to advice about dosage, which seems rather odd given that we are supplying the product. However, we are required to give guidelines on the product labels and must state that users should not exceed 200mg per day.
So, how does this all help someone who wants to know how much they should take for their particular ailment? The simple answer is to seek advice from other users on the various Facebook groups that have sprung up with the advent of the CBD industry – including our own page ‘CBD – Questions Answered’.
On these group pages you will find many posts and many charts telling you to ‘Start Low and Go Slow’. The general consensus is that 5-10mg per day for the first week and doubling up in week two is a sensible place to start. But of course each person reacts differently and your ECS (Endocannabinoid System) may or may not already be awake. The key is to allow the first month to find your ‘sweet spot’ and don’t try to rush things. If the CBD oil gives you the relief you were hoping for it will have been worth the wait.
Please also note that it is recommended that you leave two hours between taking prescription medication and CBD oil.
