How Much CBD Should I Take?

Using CBD as a food supplement is about finding out what works for you, both in terms of how you use it and how much.  Remember that the way you consume CBD can make a huge difference to how much is absorbed into your bloodstream.

As a food supplement, the maximum adult daily dose is 200mg.  CBD is being trialled at much higher doses for use as a medicine but that would be under the supervision of a doctor.  Although it is impossible to overdose on CBD, it is important not to exceed the maximum dose.

To start with, we recommend using a Love Hemp product twice per day and taking 10mg each time.  After a week, double the dose to 20mg twice per day and then increase as desired up to the maximum. As you get to higher doses you may choose to take CBD three or four times per day while still not exceeding the maximum of 200mg per day.

If you experience any side effects then take a break for at least one day and then return to the previous lower dose.  You’ll quickly work out what’s best for you.

If you’re using Love Hemp CBD oil, the easiest way to measure how much CBD you’re taking is by the number of drops.  Each drop is 0.05ml, so here’s a guide to quantity for our most popular products which come in a 10ml bottle.
