With the growing challenges to how and where CBD oil can is usable, it is obvious that it is in the infancy stage in the market. Some professionals who are a novice to this product may not know the exact dosage appropriate for users. Since CBD is a new drug in which some states legalized its use and possession, doctors may hesitate to prescribe cannabinoids like CBD. 2 factors may suggest that:

1.    Because there is no recommended daily allowance of CBD or the universal dose for all people. Doctors cannot prescribe it and can only recommend.

2.    Since the CBD/Cannabinoid is a drug that just became popular. Most medical schools didn’t cover or study CBD/cannabidiol therapy during their pharmacology courses.

For these reasons that there is no recommended dose, the dose that will be discussed further is only a guide for information reference purpose and not as medical advice. 

Each Person is Different

 When prescribing a certain dosage to someone, variables such as weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment, product consistency should be considered. From this perspective, people are new to cannabidiol to start the dosage to a minimal suggested CBD dosage on any product, then increase the dose once there’s an accomplishment of the desired outcome.

According to the CBD oil Review (COR), the official COR Serving Standard through an extensive analysis of hundreds of CBD products is 25 mg of CBD, twice a day. In addition to the analysis, the increase in the amount of CBD taken every 3-4 weeks by 25 mg can accomplish symptom relief. However, if symptoms worsen do the opposite and decrease the dosage.

To monitor the findings, it is useful to record the daily experiences in a notebook or any device to narrow down and find out the best dosage that works for you.

CBD Oil Dosage to Take According to Medical Condition

Based on the Mayo Clinic suggested that the CBD dosage comes from scientific research, publications, traditional use, and expert opinion. Using Cannabinoid and its dosage will be based on the illness and other factors. Here is a reference for each medical condition:
