With so much information coming out about CBD, we decided to take some time to answer a major question – how much CBD should I take? But before we get into that, let’s take a moment to answer another important question – what is CBD?

A Brief Overview of CBD

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol is a non psychoactive of the cannabis plant. The common misconception around CBD is that it gives off a high being tied into the cannabis family. What most people don’t know is that it can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC (the active component in marijuana that gets users “high”).

Cannabidiol is a much less controversial option, while still offering it’s user significant health benefits. CBD is just one of over eighty components of this complex plant, however it’s commonly agreed that CBD is one of the most beneficial. Take for instance the fact that CBD gives its users a relief and comfort that many pharmaceutical medications may not have previously addressed.

How Much CBD Should I Take

For best results, take CBD oil daily and increase dosage incrementally until desired results are achieved. We recommend starting with a full dropper of the 125 tincture (which contains 4mg of CBD), and increase as needed for desired results.

Here’s the measurements broken down for our Green Lotus Hemp tinctures:

  • 1 full dropper of 125 mg = 4mg CBD
  • 1 full dropper of 250 mg = 8mg CBD
  • 1 full dropper of 500 mg = 16mg CBD

So basically, if you take two full droppers of the 125mg, your intake will be 8mg of CBD, and four full droppers of the 125mg would equal 16mg of CBD. Starting out with our tinctures is a great way to introduce yourself because you control your dosage. If you’re in need of a higher dosage, check out our Hemp Oil Softgel Capsules containing 25mg of CBD.

There are many factors that affect how your body reacts to CBD – the best advice we can give is to simply listen to your body – it knows what’s good for it.
