CBD Dosage: How Much CBD Is The Right Amount?

How Much CBD Is The Right Amount?

By now, you’ve probably heard about the massive benefits of CBD, but what is the correct CBD dosage for your body and how much should you take to feel the results?

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 60 active compounds in the cannabis plant. These active compounds, known as cannabinoids, affect your body in many different ways.

CBD isn’t psychoactive — meaning it won’t get you “high.” Instead, research suggests that it may help:

  • reduce anxiety and depression
  • improve sleep
  • reduce seizures in people with epilepsy
  • reduce pain and inflammation
  • improve heart health

When it comes to dosing with CBD, there is no exact amount for any given situation. Think of it as a painkiller like Advil. Some people will need two Advils to get rid of a headache, while others might just need to take one. You can follow this CBD dosage chart as a general guideline when it comes to CBD dosage.

CBD Dosage Chart


No matter what you are trying to achieve when using CBD, it is important that you dose with the correct amount to feel the benefits.

The correct amount you should ingest depends on a few different factors including:

  • body weight
  • your individual body chemistry and makeup
  • the condition you are treating
  • the concentration of CBD in each pill, edible, or drop

It is best to start with a smaller dosage and increase it over time, rather than taking a large amount at once. For example, start with 10-20mg per day and gradually increase the amount by 5mg until you feel it is effectively treating your symptoms.

It is a good idea to keep track of the amount you are taking and whether or not your symptoms are getting better.

What happens if you take too much CBD?

Unlike other substances, the World Health Organization does not consider a toxic amount of CBD (20,000mg) to be lethal. While it is extremely unlikely that you would ever consume that much CBD, you can rest assured that aside from an upset stomach and feeling extremely drowsy, there has been no evidence to show that it would be lethal.

Consuming too much CBD would instead lead to these other ailments:

  • lethargy
  • extreme drowsiness
  • upset stomach
  • diarrhea
  • disorientation

All of these side effects are assuming that you have taken an extremely large dose of CBD. If you consume just a little more than is recommended, it’s very likely that you won’t feel anything strange. Research has shown that consuming up to 1,500mg of CBD per day is a safe amount.

What is the correct CBD dosage for anxiety?

When CBD was being researched to find out the proper amount to dose for different ailments such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis, there were varying results. There is no consensus on how much should be used for a specific condition. Research has proven that people respond differently to various doses, so it might vary from person to person.

That being said, during a study done in 2020, researchers found that participants with anxiety benefited from consuming 300mg – 600mg of CBD per day.

When using CBD to manage pain, refer to our CBD Dosage chart at the beginning of this article. There, you will take into consideration your body weight and pain level so you can get a better idea of how much CBD is the right amount to take for pain relief.

When using CBD for pain relief, you have a few different options. You can choose a CBD tincture that you will place under your tongue. You can also use a CBD topical or lotion and apply it directly onto the area with pain, or you can take a CBD pill or capsule just as you would take any other painkiller.



How many CBD gummies should I take for sleep?

If you are looking to take CBD for sleep, than start off with a lower dose, since your body will build up a tolerance to the CBD and you will eventually have to increase the dosage.

There are specific CBD products for sleep, such as these Hemp Bombs Sleep Gummies. These chewy gummies combine a concentrated 15mg dose of pure CBD with the natural calming properties of Melatonin to promote restful sleep and morning wakefulness.
