How to find your optimal CBD oil dosage

Taking into account that not one size fits all, here is some important information to consider when buying CBD oil.

1. Start your CBD dosage low

Of course, your health condition and your weight and height will determine how much CBD oil you will need, but as CBD oil experts, we recommend you begin safe and start low.

2. Increase your CBD dosage slowly

Once you have started your daily dose, it can take several days for your body to adjust to it, so it is suggested you continue with that dose for at least one week. If you’re not achieving your desired results after your first week, then begin to slightly increase your CBD oil amount. Only increase every 3-4 days until you notice positive effects. It’s a good idea to log and track your progress to help find your optimal dosage.

If you think you have increased your dose too much and are experiencing nausea and headaches, then lower your dosage.

3. Continue to make adjustments

It’s common that once you have found your optimal dosage, you may eventually develop a tolerance to it. So it’s all about safe experimentation. If you’ve developed a tolerance and are not achieving the results you once did, then make some adjustments; change how many times a day you are taking your CBD oil and at what time of the day.
