I recommend you start with the low-strength dose when using CBD for the first time and increase the dose slowly over time. When you find a dose that works, you’ve found the right dose for your body. If you experience side effects, you’ve found your upper limit. Reduce the dose to the last amount that didn’t produce side effects.
How much do I take? Can I take too much?
CBD oil is useful for managing symptoms of many mood disorders — including depression.
Calculating the Dose of CBD Based on Your Weight (How This Calculator Works)
The dose of CBD oil for pain can vary significantly. For mild pain, such as low-grade arthritis, mild PMS pain, or low back pain — a mild or moderate dose of CBD oil will usually do the trick.
For more severe pain, nerve pain, or treatment-resistant multiple sclerosis or cancer pain — you’ll likely need to use a heavy dose of CBD oil.
The time it takes to notice improvement depends on the underlying condition that’s causing the pain.
To make dosing as easy as possible, you can also use our CBD oil dosage calculator — which estimates your optimal dose based on your weight, desired strength, and potency of the CBD oil you’re using.
Before you try CBD, discuss your plan with your doctor. They may be able to recommend a dose and help you better understand any potential risks, complications, side effects, or interactions you might experience.
Some dosages that have been used in research studies for different conditions include:
So what is the maximum amount of CBD you should take? Researchers have found that 600 mg per day appears to be safe, but one study suggested that doses of up to 1,500 mg a day are safe and tolerated well.
Is It Possible to Take Too Much?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most abundant cannabinoid found in marijuana. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not have psychoactive effects. Interest in the use of CBD for health purposes has grown tremendously in the last few years.
This suggests that more research involving more participants and well-designed studies is needed in order to better understand if, how, and why CBD works.
Starting at a lower dose and working your way up to the amount you need may be the best ways to avoid taking too much.
Federal law prohibits the sale of products that contain more than 0.3% THC. States laws also vary, so you should always check with your state before buying CBD products online.
With our key watch-outs covered, it’s time to move on to the factors that affect how much CBD you’ll need to take. Remember, though, these factors are important, but they aren’t definitive, so think of them as guidelines rather than rules.

CBD oils come in a variety of concentrations and carrier oils. For many people, the most noticeable difference in carrier oils is the taste. Olive oil is the closest to an authentic CBD taste, while hemp seed oil is much nuttier, and black cumin seed is somewhere between the two.
