CBD Dosage Guide for Canadians.

“How much CBD should I take?” 

The answer truly depends on you! While there’s no perfect amount that works for everyone, our CBD Dosage Guide will help you to find the right starting point.

A Simple Approach

An easy way is to start with half a dropper (0.5ml) of oil.

Start with half a dropper (0.5mL) for 2-3 days and see how you feel. For some users it may take up to a week to notice the differences as the body adjusts to CBD.

Everyone responds differently to CBD, so don’t worry if you’re not having the same reaction as other people. There is no universal dose that works the same for everyone. Instead, it’s about finding the right amount for you.

In general, larger doses of CBD will soothe your pain and relax your mind and body.

Smaller doses of CBD will generally give you a boost in energy, focus and mood while also relieving anxiety.

How Do I Adjust My Dosage?

For some, half a dropper will make you feel relaxed, alleviate your pain and make you feel sleepy. If you’re looking for a sleep-aid then perfect – you’ve found your dose! If you don’t want to feel too sleepy, try lowering your dose by half or simply take your CBD before bed for the sleep benefits.

For others, half a dropper may give you a boost of energy and focus. If that’s your looking for an energy/focus boost then perfect – you’ve found the right dose! If you’re using CBD mainly for sleep then try increasing your dosage to a full dropper and adjusting until you achieve your desired effects. You could also move your dose to the mornings to start your days with an energy boost.

One way to have the benefits of both low and high doses of CBD is to take two separate doses. Start the day with a small dose for a boost in energy, and end your day with a larger dose for relaxation, pain relief and a deeper and more restful sleep.

A Note on Full-Spectrum: You May Actually Need Less!

With a Full-Spectrum CBD product, you may actually need less to achieve the same effects as an CBD Isolate Product. This may be due to the synergestic “entourage effects” you get from taking multiple cannabinoids together – as they may work in unison to enhance the effects of each other.

Is it Possible to Overdose on CBD?

Simply put, nobody has ever died from a CBD overdose. The Lethal Dose 50 of CBD is about 212mg of CBD per kg. This means that a 100kg person has a 50% chance of dying after being given 21.2 grams of CBD. It’s extremely unlikely anyone would ever take this much as it’d be like drinking 20 bottles of CBD oil in one sitting – something we highly recommend against!

How Much Can I Take In A Day?

Everyone is different. Some Canadians may need very high doses for severe or chronic pain/illnesses. But this would be nowhere near the lethal dose of CBD.

A 2011 study and a 2017 study found that doses of 1,500mg daily (that’s an entire bottle of high strength CBD a day) was fine in patients and had no negative health effects.

Not Responding Quite Yet?

For most users, the effects of CBD are immediately noticed. For others, results may take up to 1-2 weeks to be felt. If you are not feeling the CBD effects in the first 3 days, we also recommend you increase your dosage strength and to even take our CBD 3 times daily. This will help saturate your body fully with CBD as you adjust to its restorative, pain-relieving and stress-reducing effects.

Please also note that our CBD Products were formulated to not give you any high. So the effects may be more subtle than other CBD products containing high levels of THC.

Place Oil Under the Tongue

If you are using an oil, please place it under your tongue for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. This will allow for the fastest and fullest absorption of CBD, straight to your bloodstream via the “sublingual gland” under your tongue. This is why CBD oils have a higher absorption rate than CBD edibles which must first be digested before being absorbed in the gut.
