Finally! More Research is happening for CBD oil! Here is a quick summary of what is out there. Keep in mind everyone is different. You should start small and gradually increase the dosage until the desired result is achieved. There is absolutely no THC in the CBD oil we carry and you can never overdose on it! Be careful of some lower quality brands. They may say that they are THC free, but it might not be true.
The recommended serving standard is 25mg daily. Try this for three weeks. If you do not feel like it is helping, increase your dosage by 25mg for another three weeks. If you start feeling worse with the increase, then decrease the dosage. CBD dosage can change during a person’s lifetime. As we grow and change, so do our endocannabinoid receptors. CBD tinctures are one of the most common CBD products. Tinctures should be held under your tongue for at least 30 seconds for the best results.
To treat chronic pain, use 25mg of CBD for at least 25 days.
To treat epilepsy, use 200-300mg of CBD by mouth daily.
To treat sleep disorder, use 40-160mg of CBD by mouth daily.
To treat schizophrenia, use 40-128mg of CBD by mouth daily.
To treat glaucoma, use a single dose of 20-40mg of CBD under the tongue. Be cautious because dosages higher than 40mg of CBD mimght make symptoms worse.
An easy weight guideline for CBD is 1-6mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight. If you are experiencing severe pain, use at least 9mg per 10 pounds of body weight.

I recently came across a new book titled CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medical Cannabis by Leonard Leinow and Juliana Birnbaum. This book is an informative, scientific manual to CBD use, and lists a plethora of different conditions with specific dosage guidelines and explanations. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to dig deep into CBD on a microbiological level.
With that being said, I have learned some new tips on CBD dosing. When taking CBD, remember that we are all uniquely different. We all have an endocannabinoid system that helps maintain cellular balance within our bodies. When our bodies are imbalanced, we experience sickness, disease, mental instability, and things of that nature. CBD assists the endocannabinoid system in putting our bodies back in balance.
Depending on how “out of balance” one might be, CBD dosage will vary from person to person. First off, start small. By small, I mean 10mg or less of CBD. To test it out, try it for about 5 days. If you feel no relief, add on another 5-10mg of CBD for another 5 days. Continue this process until you feel relief. If you start to feel worse, you have crossed over your optimal CBD level, and should not take that dosage amount. You cannot overdose on CBD. I REPEAT: YOU CANNOT OVERDOSE ON CBD.
For those of you interested in CBD for your pets, this book also has a chapter for proper pet dosing. Pets are completely different than humans. Please do not blindly give your pet CBD. Use a reputable CBD pet treat, or follow the guidelines in this book.
