How Much CBD Should I Be Taking?
As far as selling CBD oil in the UK, it is sold strictly as a food supplement. With that in mind, this means that we are not allowed to offer dosage advice. Although we do have to advise people that they should not exceed 200mg per day.
How does this help us in knowing what the correct dosage is then? Well by researching and getting feedback off people who use CBD the general rule of thumb is ‘Low and Slow’
Low and Slow!
LOW – start 1-2 drops, twice a day & SLOW – increase by 1 drop every 3-6 days. Keep increasing slowly, until you get to the point that you don’t have anything left to improve, or until you start feeling better.
It is also very important to drink lots of water to flush out all of the toxins as a lot of people experience the herx effect when starting the CBD oil (The Herx Reaction is a short-term reaction the body has as it detoxifies.
It is quite common to experience flu-like symptoms including a headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms.)
If things start to reverse, back off. This is referred to as ‘self titration’. You’re figuring out your serving size, or sweet spot. For many, this can change over time, so be aware.
Final thoughts, we would advise anybody who’s thinking of starting a CBD journey to join some ‘user groups‘. This will allow you to be able to ask questions and gather information.
