Cannabis can do wonders for individuals who suffer from inflammations, pain, and anxiety. More and more people turn to medical marijuana, and CBD to manage these conditions. But not everybody is interested in getting high on THC (Even if they got a good reason to do so). The best alternative to medical marijuana (that contains both THC and CBD) is using CBD infused products (that do not contain any CBD – or less than 0.3%). CBD is unique since it gives its consumers the pain-relieving benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effect of THC. This is why ever since the 2018 farm bill had released the industrial hemp plant (hemp has high amounts of CBD and a small 0.3% THC) from the hands of the DEA, the CBD market has grown rapidly to the point where using CBD became a mainstream method to reduce tension and fight pain and inflammation.
Start With Small Doses
Every person is different and so is their personal endocannabinoid system. We recommend starting with a small dosage and evaluating its effect after a couple of days. There isn’t a reason to rush, you need to learn how your body reacts to CBD. Only then, you will be able to make a better decision on what is the right dosage for you.
Dosages of CBD in Topical Creams
Topical CBD creams and ointments are products that are made specifically for their purposes. If you’re buying a pain relief product or a skincare product from a well-trusted brand, when it comes to CBD dosages, you have nothing to worry about. the average amount of CBD in these topical creams would be around the 200-400mg of CBD extract per a 44g tube or jar. Most CBD topical products are blended with other beneficial ingredients such as menthol, Shea butter, capsaicin, avocado oil, aloe, and camphor. If this is the first time using CBD, using topicals can be great to way to start your journey.
How Much CBD Oil Should I Take
As stated before, the amount depends on your age, weight, and sex. It is also important to understand the purpose for which you are taking the CBD oil. Unfortunately, there are no precise numbers yet, but within the CBD there are basic assumptions that can be followed. We recommend starting from small doses and if necessary gradually increasing your dosage.
CBD Oil: Let’s Talk Numbers
How Do I know How Much CBD is in The Bottle?
On each CBD oil bottle that you will buy you will find the amount of CBD in mg (milligrams) plus the amount of the whole liquid substance that is in that bottle(in milligrams, ml)
How Do I Know How Much CBD Is in The Dropper?
There is an easy equation that will help you know how much CBD do you actually get with each dropper.
The amount of CBD in the bottle (mg) ÷The amount of liquid in the bottle (mL) = The total mg of CBD in your Dropper
Here is an example:
900 mg of CBD ÷ 30 mL bottle = 30 mg of CBD per dropper

Can I Get Addicted to CBD?
We want to remind you that when it comes to CBD there isn’t anything to worry about. It is not psychoactive, this means that it will not get you high. The world health organization has stated that CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential (page 5, CANNABIDIOL – Critical Review Report – Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, Fortieth Meeting, Geneva, 4-7 June 2018)
Can I Overdose On CBD?
There are no recorded cases of people overdosing on CBD. Of course that if someone would take enormous amounts it could harm him but these dosages are far higher than the most concentrated CBD oil that you could find on the market. Actually, there are researchers that believe that CBD might be able to help people who are addicted to cocaine, opioids, and other psychostimulant drugs. Hence, CBD will be able to help treat addictions.
When it comes to CBD dosages it could be difficult to understand what exactly is the right amount for you to take. It depends on multiple factors such as health condition, age, sex, etc’. Our recommendation is to start with small CBD dosages and understand how your body reacts to it before you increase the amounts. Remember, every individual is different and the most important thing is to listen to your body.
