CBD is most often taken orally. Since it is a rather new product, there isn’t much information on correct dose usages. When trying to determine how much CBD should be used, make sure you consider a few things. Make sure that your purchasing your CBD from a reputable company. They will likely make a higher quality oil, which makes it so you can use a lower dosage amount. Most bottles will have a recommended dosage, always start with that first and see how your body responds before adjusting. Give your body a couple of weeks to adjust to the CBD. If after a few weeks you aren’t seeing results, consider upping your dosage. As it is with most herb supplements, it is better to do 3-4 small doses a day, rather than one large dose.
