Dosage Guidelines



What you will find on the internet, you can only use as a guideline or a starting point of reference. The fact remains that everyone is in a different place and will react differently to their CBD product. Hence, it’s a subjective matter of how you treat the information you read. We have gathered examples of what people say worked for them. The Real CBD doesn’t claim to diagnose anyone or treat illnesses and/or heal diseases. See our disclaimer.

Serving size or dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result.

The following is just general information obtained online from individual experiences, for you to use as a guideline.

CBD dosage guidelines


General health:  Standard serving is 25mg of CBD taken twice a day.

It can be recommended that you try increasing the dosage every 2-3 days until symptom relief. And to decrease the amount of CBD with any worsening of symptoms. MORE is NOT necessarily BETTER!

Better quality sleep: 6-10mg CBD 1 hour before bedtime. However, some people feel energized by CBD and can not take it before bedtime. In this case take your CBD oil morning, midday, and the last dose 4 hours before bed.

High blood pressure: Starting dosage 10mg CBD twice a day. Keep an eye on your blood pressure to make sure it doesn’t drop too low. It is very individual how CBD affects your blood pressure, so it is very important to start low and slowly increase the dosage. Easiest to start with a 5% Pure CBD Oil

Chronic pain and inflammation: 2.5-150 mg/day CBD for an average of 15 days. Most of our clients have had the most success in managing pain with our 15% CBD Oil

For professional athletes or people who have very hard physical daily work, we recommend our 18% CBD/MCT Athletes oil. ​

Relieve symptoms of epilepsy: Ingestion of 200-300 mg of CBD daily for up to 4 1/2 months. Please check with your doctor before starting your CBD regime.

Increase appetite in cancer patients:  200 mg of Full spectrum CBD daily for six weeks.

Your diet with CBD oil


When starting out on supplementing your diet with CBD oil, you want to ensure you’re cannabinoid consumption is as efficient as possible. This is why when it comes to the amount of CBD you need to take, you will often hear us and talk about starting low & grow. The reason we suggest this is because of the biphasic properties of CBD.

What does Biphasic mean?

Cannabidiol amongst many other natural products is known to be biphasic. This means it has different effects on the body depending on concentration levels in the blood if its too low or too high. Another example of this would be alcohol which also has biphasic properties. It acts as a stimulant as blood alcohol levels reach up to 0.05%. After this, further consumption will have a depressive and sedating effect on the body.

CBD responds to our body in a similar way to alcohol. According to researchers, small doses of CBD have shown to improve alertness and also help elevate mood. Higher doses are known to cause sedative effects, causing some to become more drowsy and relaxed.

Finding out your own personal dose can be tricky, as everybody has their own specific endocannabinoid system and what works for one may not work for another.
