Cannabis therapeutics is personalized medicine. There is no single CBD:THC ratio or dosage that’s optimal for everyone.
Typical CBD dosing guidelines are
1-6mg CBD per every 10lb of your body weight
If you weight 150lb a suggested starting dose would be 15mg – 90mg
It is recommended you start with the low dose for 2 days.
Low (Starting) Dose
these are just general guidelines. Some people need significantly more, while others need significantly less. For example, if you are living with extreme chronic pain, you will likely require a higher dose on a daily basis than someone who takes CBD occasionally to cope with situational anxiety
For most medications, a higher dose will pack a stronger therapeutic punch. With cannabis, however, it’s not so simple. THC and other cannabis components have biphasic properties, meaning that low and high doses generate opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate.
In practical terms, this means that starting low and gradually upping the dose of cannabis will produce stronger effects at first. But, after a certain point, “dosage increases can result in weaker therapeutic effects,” according to Dr. Sulak
One of the common misconceptions about cannabis therapy is that you have to get high to attain symptom relief.
ultra-low doses can be extremely effective, sometimes even more so than the other high-dose extreme
CBD and THC used together create a synergy and the increase the positive effects of each other
CBD for sleep depends on your metabolism among other factors. Some people only need 5 mg others need upwards around 160mg of CBD.
Ingesting 1.25 to 2.5 mg THC shortly before bedtime for two days is a good place to start for people with little or no experience using cannabis.
As for oral administration, one should keep in mind that it can take 60 to 90 minutes before the effects of a single dose are felt.
If there are no unwanted side effects, increase the bedtime dose of THC by another 1.25 to 2.5 mg for the next two days. Continue to increase the dose of THC by an additional 1.25 to 2.5 mg every other day until the desired effects are achieved.
How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD oil?
How long you’ll have to wait to feel the CBD, as well as how long it will last, depends on which administration method you choose.
