CBD, or Cannabidiol, is quickly gaining popularity for its powerful therapeutic qualities that can help improve mental and physical health. CBD is a compound sourced from Cannabis plants. Unlike its sister compound THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and it won’t get you "high." CBD provides a wealth of health benefits, and it’s commonly used to help treat anxiety, pain, insomnia and more.

How to chose your CBD Dosage

Estimate your dosage based on your body weight. As with most substances, individuals with more body mass will require more CBD to experience its effects. With that being said, a good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1–6MG of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on the individual’s level of pain.

For example, 20MG-33MG would be a great starting dosage for a 200 lb patient, while 15MG-25MG would be best for another who weighs 150 lb.
