How Much CBD Should Should I Take?

In 2018, the Farm Bill made cannabidiol (CBD) federally legal in all 50 states. As a relatively new product on the market it's important to do your research, understand its potential health benefits, and learn how to utilize it properly.

Research suggests that CBD may be helpful for individuals struggling with:

If you're new to the world of CBD, you're probably thinking, "That's great, but how much should I take?" The answer is not universal, but we're here to provide you the information you need to make a decision that's best for you.


As an FDA approved treatment for epilepsy, doses of CBD are regulated and specific. If seeking help for that condition, we encourage you to speak with a doctor and follow their prescribed treatment plan.

Other Conditions

For all other conditions listed, doses may vary. We suggest starting out with a small dose of CBD (10-20mg) and increasing it weekly until you feel the desired effects. Generally, it's a good idea to keep your body weight in mind when increasing the dosage and live by the mantra "less is more". It may take your body time to adjust. Take it slow and don't get discouraged if you don't feel the effects immediately.

When it comes to anxiety and insomnia, higher doses of CBD seem to be more effective. Evidence suggests that doses of 300-600mg per day may help decrease feelings of anxiety, while 160mg per day may help increase duration of sleep.

Research suggests that consistent high doses of up to 1,500mg of CBD per day are tolerated well by the human body, but again only take as much as you need to feel the desired effects. Every person is different. Keep an eye on how your body is responding and adjust accordingly. If you feel any adverse side effects, decrease the dosage. It may take some time to find the perfect dosage for you.

Here at The Original Oil Shop, we offer our quality CBD tinctures in 500mg and 1000mg bottles and suggest you hold the CBD under your tongue for 90 seconds for maximum absorption. Go ahead, give them a try! Your body may thank you later.
