CBD has gained popularity in recent years and we now see it in different types of products, from CBD gummies and drinks, to CBD tinctures and patches. CBD is gaining popularity for a reason as it has been clinically proven to assist a wide range of physical and mental ailments, such as lowering anxiety, helping with pain relief, and even ensuring a good night’s rest.
As we start to see more and more products infused with CBD, people are curious to know if it’s possible to overdose on CBD.
Is there such a thing as taking too much CBD?
The short answer to this is no, it is extremely unlikely that you will take too much CBD and there have been no serious side effects recorded for taking high doses of CBD each day.
In a research study published by NCBI, doctors prescribed patients with up to 1,200mg of CBD every day. After several consecutive months, all patients involved showed no serious side effects. 1,200mg of CBD is equivalent to having 12 packets of GRN CBD gummies, which is eating 120 gummies all in one go.
How much CBD should I be taking?
Personal preferences play a large role in determining how much CBD is best for you. Many factors like the level of CBD concentration in the product, your weight, what you’ve previously eaten, and your body’s chemistry all play in the complexity of the proper doses of CBD to take.
One rule of thumb is to take 1-5mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight. So if you weigh 150 pounds, then you can try taking 15-25 mg. Nevertheless, we always recommend that you start small and experiment with increasing your dosage until you feel the desired effects. Start with 5mg of CBD and wait 30 minutes to see how you feel before taking more. We recommend doing this whenever you’re trying a new product to test out how your body might react to it.
If you’re taking other medicines or still unsure about CBD, it’s best to consult your doctor or a health practitioner to help you with a personalized CBD dosage plan.
In a recent study by WHO, they have declared that CBD is safe and reported that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.” Although it’s impossible to take too much CBD, we always recommend finding the right products and dosage that fit your personal needs.
If you are taking over the counter or prescription medications, do speaking to your doctor first before adding CBD to your routine.
