I get more and more messages asking this simple question; however there is not necessarily a simple answer.
It really depends on what you use if for and each of you are unique, so there is not a specific dosage for people…
In our experience, people tend to take between 15 and 45mg per day of CBD. Our Granjacia products for example display the amount of CBD in each bottle. The amount in mg of CBD as oppose to the percentage or volume is what is important.
For example: Our 10ml bottle contains approximately 300 mg of CBD. A 1ml syringe would, therefore, contain approximately 30 mg of CBD..
We would normally advise to start at a dose of 15g or 0.5 ml and take it from there.
We are always learning and receiving feedback direct from users themselves. Our current advice is to initially spread the dose over the course of 24 hours. Preferably 3 times a day. Everybody’s metabolism and body chemistry is slightly different. What we find important is to ‘fill’ up the cannabinoid receptors that we naturally have in our bodies and then the CBD seems to act more efficiently, through your bodies own fats etc.
In our opinion; If a patient feels they need to be above that high end dose, 45mg plus, then it’s likely that the CBD is not working as well as might be hoped.
With our ‘patients’ we try a type of oil for a week or two so they don’t spend a fortune and we see how they react to it; how they go about their day, whether it ‘suits’ them. If we feel it is working well we might increase the dose a little but it’s always different for each person.
There is no one size fits all dose. It’s about you and your own body. In fact over the last year or two we have literally converted about 75% of our community that were using THC for pain over to CBD.

P.S. Update April 2017
The small glass bottles are now amber dropper bottles.
