Since every person looking to benefit from CBD product is different in their needs and specific conditions, it is difficult to outline the recommended doses required. Further, other factors that influence your personal recommended dose include your body’s endocannabinoid system and the purity of the products with which you supplement.
For instance, your body’s endocannabinoid system is continuously binding endocannabinoids with receptor-sites in order to maintain a state of balance. Plant-derived cannabinoids imitate the endocannabinoids that your body produces, and as a result, CBD acts as natural supplement which replaces any deficiency in your naturally produced cannabinoids.
It is difficult to determine whether or not your body is producing enough CBD without being tested. Therefore the South African government has provided the following guideline:
Do not exceed more than 20mg of CBD (Cannabidiol) in your daily dose as per South African government regulations. Regulation amending s22(A)2 of the Medicine and Related Substance Act, 1965 (Act no.101 of 1965) Published 23 May 2019.
How To Find Your Optimal Dose
Experience and consensus opinion tells us that 10mg/day is about the correct amount to begin with – either in the form of drops, gummies, vapes, etc. If you find that you tolerate this amount well, then gradually increase to 20mg/day. Conversely, if you react badly, then reduce the quantity to 5mg/day. Keep experimenting until you find the quantity that works best for you.
On the other hand, if you still feel pain, anxiety or any intense symptoms of the condition you are trying to treat with CBD, then increase your dosage to 20mg per day. After some time try dropping back down to 15mg. If your symptoms remain at their manageable level, then continue treating at this dosage. However, if the symptoms of your condition return or increase in intensity then return to the higher dose of 20mg per day.
It is nearly impossible to take a fatal overdose of cannabidiol. Therefore you may continue this pattern of adjusting your daily dose until you find what works best for you.
How To Calculate The Strength of Your CBD Product
This outlines the process of calculating how much cannabidiol is delivered per serving of a CBD product that you may purchase.
For example, a full 30ml bottle of Africanpure CBD Plus contains a total of 1500mg of CBD.
As a rule of thumb, 1ml delivers approximately 20 drops. Therefore there are 600 drops in a 30ml tincture.
If the 30ml bottle contains 1500mg of CBD, then 1 drop of CBD oil will give you approximately 2.5mg of CBD.
This means that 8 drops will achieve the South African government’s recommended daily dose of 20mg.
Always consult your physician (or veterinarian) when adding to your own (or your pet’s) diet.
It is especially important for those who are pregnant, nursing, chronically ill and elderly, or under the age of 18, to discuss the use of these products with a physician prior to use. You must be 18 years or older to visit this website and/or purchase any CBD products.
