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 products display the amount of cbd in each size. The amount in mg of cbd as oppose to the percentage or volume is what is important.
For example: Our 20ml starter size contains approximately 300 mg of cbd. A 1ml syringe would therefore contain approximately 15 mg of cbd..
We would normally advise to start at a dose of 15g or 1 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 dose a little but always different for each person.
If this batch doesn’t work at these levels then it prob wont work at over dosing either so we might try a different variety of oil. Our THC extracts are far more powerful but only available to association members. 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.
For longer term use.. where feasible we encourage people to grow their own medicines, we don’t think ‘we will supply them for years’, although from a retail perspective my can actually do that.
You can see our organic cbd products on the main community website.
P.S. Update April 2017
We used to supply syringes or spoons but generally people were using their own ‘tools’ in the main. As we are always trying to save on waste and packaging etc then it made sense to stop providing them. The small glass bottles are dropper bottles but will accept a 1ml syringe. We will always listen to feedback re packaging..
