Finding your ideal daily CBD dosage
The ideal CBD dosage
We’re reaching the end of a stellar year for the UK CBD market. In what’s been a constant period of accelerated growth, well over 6 million adults in the UK have tried CBD. But what does that mean for you? Well, it means that the massive influx of new users often don’t have enough information to help them understand how best to take CBD. That’s where we come in.
As the UK’s fastest growing CBD company, we’ve constantly seen our user base expand. That’s why we want to make sure that all our users are well informed. We’re continuously engaging with our consumers, both online and in person, and we’re constantly compiling the vast amount of data we acquire. In doing so, we’ve come up with a proper understanding of what CBD dosages real people are actually using day-to-day.
Our CBD results
Our findings have shown that the average user dosage is far higher than we first anticipated. Whilst the full range of answers covers anywhere from 20-120mg, the median was around 80mg. Using this data has been integral to our ongoing product development, and in shaping our consumer advice concerning utilising different products in their CBD daily routine.
In gathering this information, we also found that our most satisfied users were frequently those using the highest dosages. Where previously we recommended dosages of 20-45mg, our user base regularly use daily doses in excess of 70mg+. Your ideal dosage may well be lower, but experimenting with higher doses could be the answer to finding your best intake.
As part of our research, we reached out to Vitality CBD users that had bought our lowest strength: 300mg. If they weren’t completely satisfied with what they believed CBD could do for them, we then sent them a 600mg sample, and within 3-5 days we received countless unsolicited emails detailing the positive impact an increase in strength had had.
Developing your CBD routine
Whether you’re taking CBD already, or still considering your first purchase, the answer of how you adjust to higher strengths is the same: steadily. We consistently see higher doses having positive reactions from consumers, but that doesn’t mean it’s as simple as immediately taking a massive amount of CBD.
Instead, we suggest you start with a low-to-mid level dosage: somewhere around 30mg a day. After taking that for two weeks, shift up to 40mg a day, and so on. When you reach a point where you feel satisfied with the results, and are happy with the process, then you’ve reached your optimum point. We’d always suggest experimenting with a higher dose, simply because you can always go back to a slightly lower one afterwards.
CBD is safe at high dosages
The most important thing to remember through all of this is that CBD is provenly safe, even at high dosages. Clinical trials repeatedly use CBD doses that are over 100mg a day, with some even reaching as high as 600mg a day. That’s because CBD has not been shown to have any adverse effects when taken, regardless of dosage.
A comprehensive study undertaken by the World Health Organization found that CBD was “generally well tolerated, with a good safety profile”. In each instance where similar research has been carried out with regards to CBD, the findings have shown that CBD interacts well with the human body, with no side effects.
Finding out why higher doses of CBD are still safe is rooted in understanding how this natural supplement works. We’d recommend starting out with our user-friendly 4-step guide, which breaks down the core basis of how CBD works.
