How much should I ingest?
Dosing is one of the most important considerations when taking any medication whatsoever, and that is no less true with Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil. While there are no severe side effects associated with excessive dosages of cannabidiol oil, the medical benefits can certainly be diminished or impeded.
Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil is the strain of medical hemp extract containing the U.S. government’s full range of patented cannabinoids. Like all CBD oils, which each contain a unique blend of different cannabinoids, CW Hemp Oil has a unique potency. This means, as with any CBD oil product, it’s imperative to read the label to determine the proper dosage, and use the product only as directed.
For those concerned about the psychoactive components of Charlotte’s Web hemp oil, the Charlotte’s Web site reports that the proportion of THC, the primary psychoactive compound in the hemp and cannabis plant, in CWO is only 0.3%. This is such a low amount that taking even a larger dose than directed is unlikely to produce any psychoactive effects.
As you might imagine, one of the key considerations in determining how much cannabidiol oil is right for you to take is your purpose for taking it. People taking it for pain and inflammation may need a different dose than people taking it for insomnia, for example. Likewise, the dosage would be altogether different if taking it to prevent seizures.
In December of 2015, the site, Herb, reported on the average CBD-hemp oil dosages for adults. For general healing, the article recommended 1.5-15 mg; for chronic pain, it recommended 2.5-20 mg; and for sleep disorders, it recommended 40-160 mg. These dosing recommendations were for orally-consumed CBD oil.
Ultimately, when it comes to the right dosage of CW hemp oil for you, even more important than what’s printed on the label of the CWO bottle is to consult with your doctor or healthcare professional. He or she will be the most qualified to inform you of the proper dose of CWO for you to take for your specific condition and circumstances.
If you’re unfamiliar with cannabidiol oil and how it affects your body, it would be best start with a smaller dose than you may ultimately require. You can always increase dosages without concern, but once you’ve taken more than you need, you can only wait for any unwanted side effects to subside. If you’re going by the directions on the bottle, simply start at the lowest end of the range given, and incrementally work your way up as needed.
Everybody is different, as is every brand of cannabidiol oil. The right dosage for one person’s ailment, physical condition and lifestyle circumstances will not necessarily be the same for another’s. Get your doctor’s guidance, read labels and start small to determine the right dosage of Charlotte’s Web cannabidiol oil for you.
