One of the most common questions we are asked is, "How much CBD Oil should I take?"
The simple answer is that there isn't one specific dose that everyone should be taking. Because everyone is unique and different, each person may require a unique amount of CBD to receive the therapeutic benefits their body needs.
To explain how much CBD you should be taking, 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 the problems you are experiencing.
This is why CBD is a trending product right now and is being requested in high demand. CBD is one of the most natural ways for your body to fight against day-to-day issues with discomfort, mood, sleep, and more.
Now back to our original question, "how much CBD should I take?" Your body will need a different amount of CBD based on what is currently causing problems.
For example: 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, then you may need a much higher strength.
Let's talk about what strength of CBD is best for you.
CBD Strength is based on the per servings amount 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 get each serving.
The simplified version is that the large CBD mg strength on the front of the bottle indicates how much CBD is in the entire bottle. By looking under the product information, you can usually find how much CBD you will receive per serving.
At Zatural, we give the total mg numbers as well as the CBD mg amount per servings. This helps distinguish what products you should buy to get the right CBD amount to meet your needs. For example, if you have a 1oz 300mg bottle of CBD oil with 30 servings, divide 300mg by 30, and you will get 10mg of CBD 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, Naturopathic Doctor MaryAnn Stanger has created a CBD dosage chart based on weight. This chart is not 100% accurate and should be viewed solely as a recommendation.
Dosage Calculator Chart:
After finding a dose that fits your needs based on the chart, you'll want to buy a product that can supply that CBD amount. Remember, the chart above is just a starting guide to help you find the right CBD amount. Once you have your bottle, it is recommended that you follow the dosage instructions.
For example, if you need 50mg of CBD a day, you would want to buy either our 1 oz 1,500 mg, 2 oz 3,000 mg, or 4 oz 6,000 mg CBD tincture bottle. One serving (1 ml) from any of these bottles will deliver 50mg of CBD per serving.
If that amount isn't showing effectiveness, you may need to increase your dosage. It's best to increase your dosage in small increments. Our droppers have markers on them. Try experimenting with the dosage size until you find a dosage amount of CBD that works for you.
At Zatural, we offer a few different ways of getting your daily dose of CBD. Zatural carries a variety of Oil tinctures, capsules, gummies, and other CBD products. Each is available in a variety of sizes and strength options. Below we can help point you in the best direction or you can click here for more information on how to choose the right CBD product for you.

CBD oil generally has a strong grassy taste. If that taste isn't for you, then we would suggest trying another type of CBD product.
CBD oil can be purchased in capsules form. The best part about taking CBD in a capsule is the pre-measured dosage amounts, and it is essentially tasteless. You might also find that capsules can easily be paired with other supplements like curcumin to help with inflammation and pain or melatonin to assist with sleep.
CBD edibles like gummies, gum, mints, chocolate, and honey are fun and delicious options for taking CBD. For those who don't like the taste of CBD oil or have trouble swallowing a capsule, an edible is the best option. However, depending on the type of CBD in the edible, you may find a problem with bioavailability; click here to learn more.
Because CBD works with our endocannabinoid system, it doesn't mean that it can't be applied topically. When CBD is applied topically, the oil is absorbed into the epidermis and can help systemic problems. CBD can be applied topically to assist with pain and inflammation.
