How Much CBD Oil Should You Take?

Picture this: you just received a Winged Wellness CBD product and can’t wait to use it. The only thing standing in your way is the question, “how much CBD should I take?”.

While finding your unique CBD dosage can help your get the most out of CBD, keep in mind that what CBD products you invest in also plays a huge role in how CBD will make you feel. 

Types of CBD

Did you know there are different types of CBD? 

They are mainly differentiated by what compounds are extracted or left within the final product. While hundreds of different compounds are naturally found within the cannabis sativa plant, the most well-known are cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. 

You are probably familiar with the most popular cannabinoids, CBD and THC, but many other types of cannabinoids play a part in the magic of the plant. 

The different CBD products you will usually find on the market are full-spectrum hemp extract, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate.

Full Spectrum Hemp Extract

Full-spectrum hemp extract is characterized by leaving all compounds from the plant but having less than 0.3% THC. Full-spectrum hemp extract will not get you high, but it will provide you with the holistic experience of CBD, something we like to call the entourage effect. The entourage effect refers to all the compounds in the cannabis plant working together to provide a synergistic experience. 

Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract

The only difference between broad and full spectrum hemp extract is that is the broad spectrum completely extracts all THC. As a result, when taking broad-spectrum, you will still experience the entourage effect. 

We usually recommend a broad spectrum for anyone concerned about taking a drug test. While full spectrum may not contain enough THC to make you feel high, it can still be detectable on a drug test.

CBD Isolate

CBD oil made from CBD isolate removes all compounds except CBD. This takes away the other powerful compounds’ ability to work together and create the entourage effect. 

Most high-quality CBD companies will only contain products with either a full or broad spectrum because products using CBD isolate may not give you the full benefits of CBD. So now that you know just what products to invest in, let’s dive into how to find the right amount of CBD for your unique needs.

Find Your Right CBD Dosage

We’ve rounded up the best steps to finding your ideal CBD dosage. However, keep in mind that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to CBD dosage. Your perfect CBD serving size will depend on the desired effect, your body, and your experience with CBD.

Start With A Smaller CBD Dosage

Newbie to CBD? If you are taking CBD for the first time, we suggest starting small. We suggest taking a small amount to start with, (about 2.5 mg to 5 mg) and see how your body responds. Once you feel comfortable, you can gradually increase. 

While CBD side effects are generally uncommon, if you experience any problems with CBD, decrease your dosage and speak with your doctor if the side effects persist. 

Track Your Progress

Consistency is extremely important on your journey to finding your ideal dosage. We always recommend keeping track of how much you take and how it makes you feel in a journal. Here are a few additional things to consider: 

  • Did you take it with food? 
  • What time a day did you take it? 
  • How long did it take for you to start to notice the effects?

Be patient with yourself. Our bodies are always evolving, so a certain dose of CBD might feel different depending on the day. 

Determine Your Desired Effects

In general, the starting point for the average user is anywhere from 10-50 milligrams of CBD per day, but this can change depending on what you are aiming to get out of CBD.

Before you begin to take CBD regularly, set some goals for yourself. The proper dose of CBD is going to look different when taking CBD to relieve chronic pain versus taking CBD to get a better night’s sleep. The amount of CBD for pain like consistent migraines will be a higher dose than for someone with occasional stress.
