Disclaimer: Remember, each mg dosage is divided according to the strength and quantity in ml of the CBD oil bottle you buy.
The answer is: yes. As with any medical purpose product, it has to undergo a study to be used safely.
Although there is still data needed regarding the effects of taking pure CBD, research has shown its low toxicity.
The WHO reported that humans could tolerate CBD well without feeling side effects. This is backed by a study in which participants were given 1,500 mg of CBD per day for four weeks. The results showed that they did not go through withdrawal and that the dosage was well tolerated.
A 2020 research showed that participants with anxiety showed promising results after taking a dosage between 300 and 600 mg per day for a month.
What these studies showed is that the dosage does vary according to the illness. That’s why it is important to always talk to a doctor before using CBD, especially if there are symptoms of a severe physical or mental health condition.
It is also important to remind anyone interested in CBD that the only CBD product that has been FDA approved is Epidiolex, a seizure medication for which the starting dosage is 5 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. The dose can increase depending on the patient’s needs.
Unless a qualified doctor recommends a dosage, start with a low dose among 5 and 10 mg per day. Then, take it for a week as a trial and, if you see any allergic reaction, seek a medical opinion.
Be aware that medical research has found that 600 mg per day is a safe dosage. However, other studies increase that amount to 1,500 mg per day. Since such studies are still being tested, you should always seek a medical opinion when taking CBD to avoid any problem.
How to Read Your CBD Oil Bottle
Let’s say you have two CBD oil bottles. One is 10ml with 1000 mg of CBD; the other is 20 ml with 1000 mg of CBD. This means that they both contain the same amount of cannabinoids, 1000mg, but they have different strengths. So the 10 ml bottle has 10% CBD the 20 ml bottle has 5% CBD.
This Is key to understanding dose.
A 10 ml bottle is the same as 200 drops. So, to calculate the mg per drop, you have to divide the total CBD mg by the number of drops:
1000mg/200 drops (10ml)= 5mg CBD per drop.
CBD Dosage for Children
Epidiolex, the FDA-approved CBD medicine, is used in children who have two forms of severe epilepsy: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Other than these, sometimes CBD is used in commercially manufactured forms, such as oils and tinctures, to treat some conditions in children. The use of Epidiolex in children should always be done under a pediatrician´s supervision.
CBD gummies have become popular among parents to use in children because they contain consistent doses disguised in candy. Although gummies usually have from 5 to 10 mg of CBD, they should be administered with medical advice, especially for children.
Since 2012, studies have been carried to determine the benefits and the CBD oil dosage for children. They have concluded that more minor, low potency doses should be given, ranging from 100 mg to 300 mg per day.
CBD Dosage for Dogs
Pet owners worldwide have started to consider CBD oil as an effective treatment for their dog’s pain. Giving your dog the right amount of CBD oil, however, is crucial. According to the Canine Journal, you should provide 0.2 mg of oil per pound. After this calculation, you need to learn how much oil you will give your pet based on how many milligrams of CBD is in each milliliter of oil. This will vary depending on the formula’s strength you buy.
They have a standard formula strengths chart and how much CBD there is in each:
75mg formula = 2.5mg of CBD per ml of oil 150mg formula = 5mg of CBD per ml of oil 300mg formula = 10mg of CBD per ml of oil 600mg formula = 20 mg of CBD per ml of oil
