Can you take too much CBD?

Can you take too much CBD?

While still a relatively new concept, studies are revealing the many benefits of CBD, so much so that it's becoming extremely popular as a wellbeing tool. CBD oil may be the answer to multiple woes, from staving off horrendous period cramps to calming down acne flare-ups.

But as with all things in life, balance is key, and you must use CBD oil responsibly. When buying our CBD and olive oil for the first time, we recommend carefully reading through our dosing page and starting with our Lowkey CBD and olive oil.

What is the maximum amount of CBD oil you can take in a day?

Research from 2017 suggests that we can tolerate up to 1,500 mg of CBD each day. However, we recommend never to exceed 80 drops of our CBD and olive oil, which equates to approximately 200 mg of CBD.

Remember that there are various ways to take CBD, so make sure you do thorough research and always opt for caution when it comes to how much you're taking each day.

Is taking CBD every day bad for you?

As it currently stands, taking CBD every day is considered safe. As more research is carried out, we may be able to substantiate this further. Scientists are learning more about this wondrous ingredient all the time. 

However, if after you introduce CBD into your daily routine, you experience any of the following:

  • Changes in weight or appetite.
  • Diarrhoea.
  • Fatigue.
  • Vomiting.

We recommend taking a step back. You should always speak to your doctor before adding a new supplement to your daily routine. This is particularly important if you're currently prescribed any medication to ensure they don't negatively affect each other. 

Increasing your CBD oil dosage 

Through regular use, you may find that you don't feel the same level of impact, which can be incredibly frustrating if you're using CBD oil for period pain relief or as a way to improve your mental health.

By starting on a small dosage and monitoring the results (hello, journaling), you'll be able to slowly increase your CBD dosage as your tolerance levels increase. Just ensure you never go over our suggested maximum daily dose, and certainly, never take more than 1,500 mg in a day.  

Balance is key

There are so many amazing reasons to introduce CBD oil into your life, and as responsible sellers, we want to give you as much information as possible to help you reach an informed decision. 

By speaking to your doctor, never exceeding the recommended daily dose, and keeping a running diary on the impact CBD has, you can enjoy the benefits of our oil to its fullest extent. 

If you have any more questions, you may find the answers on our FAQ page, or you can get in touch with us directly.
