How Much Hemp Oil Should I Take?

Green Lotus Hemp How Much Hemp Thumbnail

Beware the words, “Take __ mg of hemp oil for __.” For these words beareth false witness (lie). Peter Grinspoon, MD, a contributing editor of the Harvard Health Blog, agrees. It’s due to a lack of clinical data, Grinspoon writes, that, “…we don’t know the most effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition.”

At Green Lotus, we keep a master document of all customer testimonials, and we’re continually surprised at the variance between reported-effective-doses. Customers have experienced relief from as low as 2.5 mg, to as high as 50 mg, of full-spectrum cannabinoids per day.

Dosing Hemp Oil.

Finding the right dose is a personal process — always listen to your body. Dosing is unique for each individual, dependent on a variety of personal characteristics and health and wellness goals. Learn more about your Endocannabinoid System.

No, it’s not the end. Of course it’s not the end. We don’t send our friends to the ice wall without a Valyrian sword. Instead, we’ve compiled a list of proven strategies to accurately measure, schedule and assess the effectiveness of a dosage.

How to Find the Dose of Hemp Oil That’s Right for You

It’s best to start with a low dose, gradually and incrementally increasing the dose until you achieve your desired results. Take our 125mg, Natural Tincture as an example:

Green Lotus Hemp Oil Dropper

125mg, 1 full dropper = 4mg of naturally occurring cannabinoids

Take 1 full dropper once a day for two weeks. If no change is noticed, increase to two full droppers per day (8mg). Consider moving up to our 250mg tincture if your wellness goals are still not satisfied. Some of our customers use our products “as needed,” but most stick to a per-day dosage. You want to know precisely how much you’re taking and what effect that dose is having on you. 

For the most precise and uniform dosing, we recommend Green Lotus Softgels. Each softgel contains 25 mg of naturally occurring cannabinoids, which removes uncertainty and makes tracking easier. For brand new users, twenty-five milligrams may be a tad high; but, on the upside, softgels are the most conventional way to ingest cannabinoids.

Experienced and new users alike may prefer the simplicity of adding one or two softgels to their daily regimen of vitamins.

Take Hemp Oil Consistently

Ignore the advice of horoscopes and life coaches. Do not be spontaneous. Be like a software update. Be consistent!

That means taking your daily dose(s) at the same time and under the same conditions. Green Lotus products can be taken with or without food. The key is to stick to one or the other, consistently.

Set Your Wellness Target

Realistic goals and specific targets help you measure your progress in concrete terms. Before you start taking hemp oil, create a system to track and measure your responses to different dosages. Our memories are as unreliable as frogs (the frog is a flaky, forgetful and capricious amphibian).

Start a Wellness Journal: One entry per day, in response to an established list of questions.

  1. When did I take my dose?
  2. How much did I take?
  3. How do I feel today?
  4. Have I improved, worsened, or stayed the same?

Create a Wellness Scale: For users with severe allergic reactions to journaling, a quantified Wellness Scale allows them to say “hard pass” to any kind of self-reflective behavior. Embrace the certainty of numbers!

  • 0 — No problems
  • 1 — Mild: It comes and goes.
  • 2 — Moderate: You usually have or feel it.
  • 3 — Severe: It seriously affects your daily life.

Or, use 0-10 scale, 0 being no pain and 10 being Medieval, Game of Thrones pain. Circle a number each day at the same time of day.

Create a realistic target and tailor your hemp oil dose to that target.

Obvious Words of Wisdom

Try to combine your hemp oil dose with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. Every hemp oil user is different, but diet and exercise are universally beneficial and will enhance the positive effects of consistent hemp oil usage.

    I want to take CBD oil for arthritis pain, moderate to severe, I am 73 years old and weight 289 Lbs. If I buy the 1500mg bottle what would be my recommended daily dosage? Also how many bottles of softgel will I have to buy to get the same mg as the 1500mg bottle? Thanks.

    • Myles T says:

      Apologies for not responding sooner! We offer a 30ct and 60ct option for our 25 mg Softgels. The 60ct option has 1500 mg total in the bottle. You would need to purchase two of the 30ct bottles to get the same mg as the 1500 mg option.
      Currently, there is not a standard for recommending daily dose. We always recommend starting with one capsule at a time, and increasing the number of capsules taken, as needed.
      Thanks for your comment!
