Finding the right dosage of CBD can be challenging, given its individual effects on each user and the lack of an official standard recommended by UK law. To ensure that users are receiving all the benefits that CBD has to offer, it is essential to understand what dosage is necessary for maximum benefit. In this article, we will discuss what is currently touted as the max dosage for users of CBD, why there should be a standard dosage for CBD users in the UK, and how you can find your perfect balance with Cali Greens.

Understanding CBD Dosage

Understanding CBD dosage is important to ensure users are receiving all the benefits of CBD. CBD affects everyone differently and as such it can be difficult to create a standardised dosage. Different agencies suggest different dosages, making it difficult for CBD users to know what their optimal dose should be. It is also important to remember that each user may require different dosages and may need it adjusting depending on the user's weight, age, metabolism, and other factors. Taking into account these individual differences, it is important for users to find their own perfect balance when taking CBD.

So you see why it could be useful for a standardised dosage amount for people to work with.

What is Currently Touted as the Max Dosage for Users of CBD?

At the moment, there is no official standard recommended by UK law for CBD dosage. Different agencies have suggested different dosages, and it can be difficult to distinguish which one is accurate. For instance, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) suggest that users should not take more than 70mg of CBD per day, while the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) suggest that users should take between 10mg and 70mg per day as a supplement – however this has recently been updated with a suggested 17.5mg per day; a sizeable difference!

It is important to note that these dosages are not set in stone and that it is recommended to consult your GP before taking any CBD products, especially for those on existing medication.

Why There Should Be a Standard Dosage For CBD Users

Having a standardised dosage could be beneficial for both consumers and manufacturers of CBD products. It would give users more understanding of the amount of CBD they should try to get the best results while allowing manufacturers to produce products with consistent amounts of CBD. This would also create opportunities to create more tailored CBD products to suit users personally. Being able to create CBD products that have a much higher chance of being effective for specific users, based on their biological factors, could help more experience the benefits of CBD.

Currently, the many biological factors that influence CBD’s effects and dosage mean that users must use a ‘trial and error’ approach to understanding their dosage. A standardised dosage could also help prevent any bias against certain products that may be labelled with higher-strength doses than those recommended by, for example, the EIHA.

Cali Greens offer a range of CBD products with varying strengths and dosages, making it easy for you to find your perfect balance. We recommend starting with low doses and gradually increasing as necessary to find your perfect dosage - this allows users to feel the effects of CBD without overdoing it. It is also important to ensure that any product you buy is both high quality and tested to ensure CBD amounts and lack of THC, which in the UK must be less than 0.2% THC content.

In the end, is it worth it?

In conclusion, understanding CBD dosage is essential for users to get the most out of their CBD product. Different agencies suggest different dosages which can cause confusion and don't offer great understanding for newcomers to CBD. Having a standardised dosage could be beneficial for both consumers and manufacturers, allowing more tailored products to be created and preventing bias against certain products. Although establishing a standardised dosage will likely be hard due to the variance of how CBD interacts with different people.
