How Much CBD Oil Should You Be Taking?

By July 29, 2019 No Comments


People use CBD for all kinds of things these days. It’s becoming a popular choice for natural relief from many problems. Just some of the more common reasons are:

  • For pain relief
  • To reduce anxiety and depression
  • May benefit heart health
  • May aid in cancer recovery
  • Helps diabetes prevention
  • For reducing acne
  • Can help with neurological disorders

There are many other reasons to use it. If you are suffering from any of the above, or anything else that you may think could get better with CBD oil, give it a go. Tinctures are similar to the oil and you use it in the same way.

The amount you take, will, of course vary from person to person. When trying it out for the first, start with a small amount. You don’t want to shock the system! After, if you feel you need more, then by all means up the dosage. 

Most people will take it 1 or 2 times a day. Usually, an amount between 10mg and 20mg is sufficient to feel the effects of the oil. When you buy CBD oil, you can always ask the company you are getting it from for some tips.


Up until now, there are no known cases of an overdose. And, it certainly isn’t toxic. However, you still need to make sure you are taking care while consuming to avoid any unwanted situations. 

Perhaps you start getting carried away, what will happen? Well, if you consume too much, you will likely start to feel drowsy and might experience a bit of diarrhea.


As with any kind of drug, whether it is completely natural or not, there might be some side effects. Most people will be fine, and perhaps just feel a bit lethargic, to begin with. Once you get used to it, though, this may subside.

A few other potential side effects are nausea, dry mouth, changes in appetite, and diarrhea. Of course, as with anything you take, if feelings start to get strong, or you’re in a bad way, you need to seek medical attention.


Don’t fancy CBD oil? Other products on the market can do a similar job. Here are a few we think are great alternatives, or if you want to try something new.

CBD Gummies

If you are a lover of everything sweet, maybe you should give CBD gummies a try. Maybe the idea of oil doesn’t sound appetizing to you. So get yourself a pack of these and see what you think. Make sure you hide them from little grabbing hands, though!

CBD Inhalers

These are perfect if you want a precise dosage of CBD. They come in lots of different flavors and will make you feel just like the other products. If you look at a trusted CBD oil company, you will see that they often offer these as a top alternative to oil.

Dog Snacks

Yep, that’s right! We said dog snacks. Even your pooch can get a slice of the pie. When dogs age they too can suffer from aches and pains. These treats can ease pain and help them enjoy life more. Just don’t leave them within your dogs’ reach!


As long as you are sensible and stick to the recommended dose, you can enjoy as much CBD as you like. It will do wonders and make you feel better quickly.
