One of the most common questions we are asked is, "How much CBD Oil should I take?"
The simple answer is that everyone is different, and each person may require a unique amount of CBD to receive the therapeutic benefits their body needs.
How Does CBD work?
To explain how much CBD you should take, you need to know how CBD works in the body. Your body produces endocannabinoids, tiny neurotransmitters that connect to our cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Your endocannabinoid system sends CBD to these receptors to assist with pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and relaxation.
You may not know this, but the human body produces a small amount of CBD. Adding more CBD to your body's endocannabinoid system gives your body more fuel to fight against problems causing you discomfort.
This is why CBD is such a trending product right now and being requested in high demand. CBD is the most natural way for your body to fight against day to day discomfort and stress.
Now back to our original question, "how much CBD should I take?" Your body will need a different amount based on what is currently causing it problems. If you have mild head pains or pain found in your back or joints, you may only need a small amount of CBD; however, if you struggle with a more severe issue caused by a previous incident like an accident or traumatic encounter, than you may need a much higher strength.
Let's talk about what strength of CBD is best for you.
What CBD Strength is right for me?
CBD Strength is based on the per servings size of CBD in a product. In the Blog article "CBD Oil Help Guide – What to know before buying," we discuss the differences between the larger CBD milligram (mg) number on the front of the bottle and the actual CBD mg amount you are getting each serving.
At Zatural, we give the total mg number as well as the CBD mg amount per servings. This helps simplify what product you need to buy to get the amount of CBD you need. For example, if you have a 1oz 300mg bottle of CBD oil with 30 servings, divide 300mg by 30, and you will get 10mg per serving. You can do this with any CBD product that lists a per-serving amount.
So, how much CBD Oil should I take? Here at Zatural, our in-house Naturopathic Doctor has created a CBD dosage chart based on weight. This chart is not 100% accurate and should be viewed solely as a recommendation.

Remember, this is just a starting guide for finding the right CBD amount for you. Start with the recommended dosage of 1ml per day for a couple of days, and then try increasing the amount if you do not notice any effects. If it meets your needs, great; if not, you might double or even triple the dose for a short period. You should gain a pretty good idea of what CBD bottle you should try next through this testing method.
What type of CBD product should I try?
At Zatural, we offer a few different ways of getting the CBD you need. First off, we have our Broad Spectrum CBD oils. CBD oil is the most common method of taking CBD; that's because CBD oil comes in various flavors, strengths, and bottle sizes. CBD oil is easy to mix and match to get an optimal CBD product that meets your needs.
The second option would be CBD Softgels or Capsules. CBD oil naturally has a strong grassy taste, and even when paired with flavoring, it can be unenjoyable to take. CBD Capsules help eliminate the bad taste of CBD oil. The only downside to CBD Softgels is that it needs to be digested before your body and absorb and use the CBD.
The third option is CBD edibles like gummy's, gum, mints, and honey. Those who don't like the taste of CBD oil and have trouble swallowing a capsule have the option of an edible. CBD edibles are a fun way to get your daily dose of CBD, but much like CBD softgels, the effects of CBD oil take longer to show.
