Finding your ideal daily CBD dosage

Finding your ideal daily CBD dosage

Your CBD dosage matters

CBD is still a totally new concept to most people, and yet in the last year over 6 million adults in the UK tried it. As the UK's number 1 CBD brand, we're continuously engaging with our users to find the best ways to use and buy CBD. That's why we know how to get the best CBD dosage for you. 

Our CBD results

Our findings have shown that the average user dosage is far higher than we first anticipated. Whilst the full range covers 20-120mg a day, the median was around 70mg. It's this higher daily dosage that's the key when buying CBD

We found that our most satisfied users were those using the highest dosages. Where previously we recommended dosages of 20-45mg, our user base regularly use daily doses in excess of 70mg+. Experimenting with higher doses is essential for user satisfaction. 

We also reached out to Vitality CBD users that had bought our lowest strength: 300mg. If they weren’t completely satisfied, we then sent them a 1200mg CBD Oral Spray, and within 3-5 days we received countless unsolicited emails detailing the positive impact increasing their dosage had. 

Develop your CBD oil routine

Whether you’re a regular CBD user, or still considering your first CBD oil purchase, our research emphasises the benefit of shifting to a higher dosage. That's why we suggest starting high.

Since consumer satisfaction spikes from 70mg onwards, we recommend you start with 70mg a day for a week as a loading dose. After that, you have two options:

  • If you were satisfied, shift down by 20mg a day.
  • If you weren't satisfied, shift up by 20mg a day. 

You can repeat this process each week till you feel you're totally satisfied—this is your optimum point. We’d always suggest experimenting with a higher dose, because you can always go back to a lower one later.

CBD is safe at high dosages

The most important thing to remember through all of this is that CBD products are 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.

CBD pipette levels

That’s because CBD has not been shown to have any adverse effects outside of mild nausea at extremely high doses (500mg+). If you want to be sure of exactly how much CBD you're taking in our CBD Oral Drops, check our helpful diagram above. 

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 oils, the findings have shown that CBD interacts well with the human body, with no side effects.
