How to use CBD Oil


While extremely effective, CBD products are fairly new to the market. The industry has not been FDA approved in many states and thus, there advancements are slow but progressing nonetheless. In order to make use of it efficiently, an understanding of exactly how CBD products, in specific CBD oil, needs to be present in every individual’s mind. Only when you understand what these oils do, is when you can understand their effects and what exact dosage you should take.

CBD Dosage Guidelines

What is CBD?

CBD oil is a concentrated extract from the Cannabis Stevia plant. There are who components; THC and CBD. THC is the one that is more commonly associated with marijuana as it causes an effect on your mental capacity and state. However, CBD is the other component of the plant that does not have these effects and is considered to be nature’s natural sedative.

CBD products come in various forms and with various concentrations. They could be oils, pastes, sprays, infused gum, edibles, wax, vape cartridges, patches and even balms, lotions and soaps. The most common type of product however is CBD oil.

As you use the type of product you bought, you will notice that it can be a helpful tool is reliving pain, anxiety and stress. It can even be an agent that helps promote a good quality of sleep. Many patients suffering from serious diseases like sleep apnea use CBD oil as a treatment option.

Dosing CBD

The CBD Oil Review (COR) has released a report according to which a daily serving or 25mg, twice a day, is recommended. However, the FDA has not approved an official CBD dosage, thus there can be no recommended amount that can be applied to all on an official basis. This leaves people with the question of what are the determining factors into deciding the right CBD dosage for you.

There are many factors that will help you decide what CBD dosage is best for you:

Body Weight: can often be the cause of different results; the more mass you have, the more CBD oil you will need to have a similar effect to those who are lighter. Getting the right dosage will be a game of trial and error, you will just have to find what suits you through experimenting. In order to give you some sort of a start, it is recommended that you take anywhere from around 4-6mgs for every 10 pounds. 

Tolerance: In addition to body weight, there also needs to be an understanding of the concept that every individual and their tolerance is different. Thus, even if you are the same weight as another, you might not be privy to the same benefits that they are deriving out of the CBD oil. This means that your CBD dosage will be very different from your friend’s. The best solution to find out your CBD oil dosage would be to start on the basis of weight and then to increase it. You should, at the same time, keep in mind your bodily reactions so that you know what suits you best.

Concentration: When you buy s CBD product, you should always take note of the concentration of it. This will be the determining factor; highly concentrated oils will have a quicker and more intense effect than those that are not. Stay on the modest side if you have bought a CBD product that is high in concentration. In most cases, organic oils –like our Cannabare CBD oils for Pain, Sleep and Anxiety– are highly concentrated because they are a 100 percent pure. Thus while they ensure quality, you should always determine the right dosage slowly and modestly.

Condition: The condition you are trying to treat with the right CBD oil or product is also what determines the perfect CBD dosage. Extreme diseases like sleep apnea, chronic pain may require a higher CBD oil dosage than just inducing sleep. Therefore, whatever you are trying to treat plays an important part in deciding your CBD dosage. If you feel like you are at a deadlock and cannot decide, approach your physician. While they cannot prescribe it. Because of FDA regulations, they can definitely recommend a safe amount for you to use.

The short answer is, no. Due to the fact that CBD oils are made out of CBD instead of THC, you will not experience any ‘high’. Even without the sensation, there is absolutely no way you can overdose on CBD oils no matter what your CBD dosage is. It is always good to check with your doctor before, just in case you have some allergies or are hypersensitive to some components.
