cbd tincture serving size

With such a variety of products and potencies, the question remains, “How much CBD should I use?”

In order to comply with FDA regulations, Medical Marijuana, Inc. does not list an RDI of our own, nor do we provide a Daily Value (%DV) for any of our products. However, our products do come with a “suggested CBD serving size.” This suggested serving size acts as a guideline to help you decide the right amount of CBD oil to use to help you hit your daily CBD goal. While you can heed our suggested serving size and only use that specific amount of CBD, the amount of CBD you use in each serving is entirely up to you.

Start With a Small CBD Serving Size

For those wondering how much CBD they should use, there is no perfect answer. The ideal CBD serving size will vary depending on the individual and what result he or she is looking for when using CBD. While there is a suggested CBD serving size on every product sold by Medical Marijuana, Inc., that is more of a rough guideline for how much CBD to use rather than an exact serving guideline. Instead, you need to decide based on your own individual wants and needs.

Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s full-spectrum of CBD hemp oil products all contain less than 0.3% THC, far below the threshold for intoxication. However, if you would prefer to avoid any exposure to THC in your daily serving of CBD, we provide products made from 99% pure CBD isolate, such as our popular RSHO-X™.

CBD, like all cannabinoids, can also build up in the body and cause an increase in cannabinoid receptors. An increase in cannabinoid receptors then makes the endocannabinoid system more active and sensitive to stimulation by cannabinoids. This is one more reason to make sure you are supporting your system with CBD daily.

Starting at a lower dose and working your way up to the amount you need may be the best ways to avoid taking too much.

It is also important to remember that CBD products are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Some manufacturers make unproven claims about the uses and efficacy of their products. There is also concern about the quality and safety of the products themselves.

It is important to remember that these benefits have not yet been conclusively proven. More research is needed to determine the role that CBD might play in the treatment of different disorders and health conditions.

How to Take CBD

Some recent research has generated concerns over the safety and potential long term effects of CBD. One study involved giving mice an equivalent of the maximum dose of the CBD medication Epidiolex, which is used to treat certain forms of epilepsy. The results indicated an increased risk for liver damage as well as concerns over its interaction with other medications.  

So what is the maximum amount of CBD you should take? Researchers have found that 600 mg per day appears to be safe, but one study suggested that doses of up to 1,500 mg a day are safe and tolerated well.  

The amount of CBD found in a product may depend on different factors, including the formulation and method of administration. CBD products are available in a number of different forms including oils, capsules, tablets, nasal sprays, and gummies.
