When someone is beginning CBD for the first time, one of their first questions is “how much should I take?” There are a lot of variables that go into deciding how much CBD you should take like your body weight, the condition you're treating, the way you're taking it, and your body chemistry. Everybody is different, so it can be trial and error at first to figure out what dosage is best for you.
At High Point Pharms we have a few different ways that you can take our CBD; the tincture, gummies, and capsules. The CBD is all the same from one to another, (we know it cause we grow it ;) ) so it really just depends on your preference. I usually suggest taking the tincture vs the other ingestible options. I say this because the CBD will get into your system faster when taken sublingually, and when it comes to gauging how many milligrams you are taking, it is much easier to do so with the tinctures.
The rule of thumb is to start with a small dosage and work your way up until you get your desired effect. What I typically suggest to CBD newbies, is to start with a 1000mg tincture and take half a dropper in the morning, and half a dropper at night; which would be 33 mg a day. It's important to spread out when you take your CBD so that it stays in your system consistently throughout the day. If you are not feeling a difference after a week, increase your dose by 5 mg and so on until you get the desired effect. Once you figure out what dose is best for you, you can better gauge how many mg you want your next tincture to be. We offer a variety of mg in tinctures; 300, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000, and 5000.
Everybody is different, what works well for me may not work for you, and that's okay! If you are someone who has tried CBD before and it didn't work for you, maybe give it another try and increase your dosage. You never know, maybe you were just taking the wrong amount.
