How to calculate the dosage of CBD
How to calculate the right dosage of CBD


There is no single ‘correct’ dosage of cannabidiol (CBD). The amount to be taken depends on a number of personal factors, including body weight, the condition to be treated, the concentration of CBD in each product and individual body chemistry. There are many variables that need to be considered before finding the perfect dosage of CBD.

If your doctor has prescribed CBD for your health, they should include the correct dosage on the pharmacy slip. Stick to their recommendation as it is considered prescription medication and will likely have the best impact on your well-being. For people who decide to take CBD for anxiety relief, sleeplessness and other personal reasons, it is best to start with a small dose and slowly increase it.

Start small and increase the dosage

A smaller dosage will allow you to understand how CBD works and what its effects are. If you still feel pain, stressed or have trouble sleeping, increase the dosage in small increments until you can feel the effects. Try a small dose, such as 10mg per day. After one week, increase this dosage by 5mg every week until it starts to improve your symptoms. 

It is advisable to keep a written record of your CBD intake and its effect on your symptoms. This will allow you to track its initial effects and work out the ideal dosage for your body and condition. It can also be used as a helpful tool if you need to visit a doctor and get some advice.

Soji Health CBD products come with clear instructions for use. The concentration of CBD is clearly labelled on the bottles and within the packaging instructions. This will tell you how much CBD you will be taking per single serving. Use this as a guide for working out your ideal dosage – you can calculate how many gummies, oil drops or pumps of cream you will need.

CBD dosage also depends on severity of condition

The severity of an illness or ailment will also determine the amount of CBD that needs to be taken. As a general rule of thumb, you can use the following dosages depending on the strength of the CBD needed for the condition being treated. 

For low strength dosages, take 0.2mg per kilogram of bodyweight. For medium strength applications, take 1mg per kilogram and for high strength needs, take 1.5mg per kilogram. For example, a 70kg person should take around 70mg of CBD for their medium strength needs.

Here are some recommendations for the following conditions – remember to start low and work your way up to the ideal dose:

  • General well-being – low strength
  • Nausea – low strength
  • Headaches – low to medium strength
  • Anxiety – medium strength
  • Muscle pain and sports injuries – medium strength
  • Migraines – medium strength
  • Chronic pain – medium to high strength
  • Insomnia and sleeplessness – medium to high strength
  • Epilepsy – high strength
  • Cancer – high strength

Can you take too much CBD?

The short answer is no. The body is able to tolerate high doses of CBD – it consumes what it needs and retires any unused CBD through urine. So it is not possible to overdose on CBD. However, in the interest of efficiency and value for money, consumers should find their ideal dosage and avoid using too much of the product. 

Conserving your CBD will allow you to get the most benefit for the longest period of time. It will help you to save money in the long run if you can find your sweet spot and use just the right amount of CBD every day. Soji Health products are fast and effective – acting up to six times faster than other brands of CBD.

These guidelines should serve as the starting point for your CBD journey. To start, take a smaller dose than needed and slowly increase it until you find the optimal amount of CBD for your needs. CBD can be used for a number of applications and is an effective remedy. For more information, check out our blog section for informative articles on CBD and Soji Health products.
