Frequently Asked Questions about CBD

How much and how often should I take CBD oil?

When determining CBD oil dosage it’s important to understand the dosage depends on your physiology, symptoms and your desired effects. Each person is unique and will experience different effects. A person with a good endocannabinoid tone won’t need as much oil and will also experience the most subtle effects. While an individual with more pressing health matters may need to up the CBD oil dosage to help tone the endocannabinoid system into balance.

You can safely experiment with proper CBD dosage based on a few things: your weight and how you want to take CBD oil. A good general calculation for effective CBD dosage recommendations based on weight is 1 milligram of CBD per every 10 pounds you weigh. In other words, divide your weight by ten to get your recommended daily dosage in milligrams.

[Your weight in pounds] ÷ 10 = [your daily dose in milligrams]

For example, if you weigh 150lbs, 15mg per day may be a good baseline CBD dose recommendation for you. Begin with a bit less than this baseline if you prefer to be cautious, or add a bit more if you’re seeking rapid results.

Can I give CBD oil to my pets?

Your dog or cat can experience the same benefits from CBD as you. Like humans, dogs and cats have an endocannabidinoid system that allows them to benefit from CBD oil. This system allows the active ingredients in hemp to work.


How long does it take CBD to start working?
CBD takes 30-40 minutes to start working. As a rule, oils tend to kick in a little faster than biscuit or treats just because there are fewer ingredients for furry bellies to break down first. But there is no difference in effectiveness between the two.  

How long does CBD last?
Each dose whether from oil or biscuits-last from 4-8 hours, That’s a big spread, we know, but the duration can vary a lot depending on your pet’s size, activity level, breed, and severity of their symptoms.

Can you overdose on CBD?

There have been no reported overdose deaths from CBD or other hemp products. Fact is more people have been trampled by unicorns than died from THC. 

Pure CBD oil is non-toxic and has been tested in human trials in doses up to 1500mg-2000mg in a single day without significant side effects.

However, there is little evidence that extra large dosages result in substantial additional health benefits. The endocannabinoid system acts to balance the body. Once it is activated and sufficiently well-oiled, it performs its function. Since an effective dose is well below the tested limits, it’s not practical to waste money on megadosing CBD.

Always consult your physician first

It is always best to consult with your physician first to help you decide how much CBD oil to take. Most important is that if you’re on medication, speak to your doctor about any possible interactions.
