Determining how much CBD is right for you

Determining how much CBD is right for you

we’ve developed a recommended "baseline" for dosage and encourage our customers to use this as a reference.

The most common question we get is "How much CBD should I take?” On the surface, this is a fairly simple question, however there are some variables to consider like body weight, pain tolerance, severity of the ailment, and individual body chemistry. Use this as a reference and modulate your dosage up or down depending on your unique needs.

Dosage recommendations: Tinctures and Gel-Caps

seven points cbd tincture drop

Tincture dosage is very easy to modulate, simply increase or decrease the dose by a drop or 2 and make note of the outcome. The chart below is based on feedback from Seven Points CBD users, the founder's experience, and the advice of industry experts.  Some sites recommend dosage as high as 1mg per 4pounds of body weight. We believe this level of dosage to be excessive for most users. We recommend a conservative dose of 1mg per 10 pounds of body weight (see the the chart below). Our labels give a clear indication of the amount of CBD in each drop of tincture. Each drop of 600mg tincture contains 1.33mg CBD & each drop of 1200mg tincture contains 2.66mg CBD.

Experiment with the dropper and see how full it needs to be for the recommended number of drops by partially filling the dropper and slowly squeezing the drops back into the bottle. Place the recommended number of drops under the tongue and hold for 2 min. This allows the CBD penetrate the soft sublingual tissue and absorb into the bloodstream providing a high level of bioavailability. 

 

seven points gelcaps

Gel-Cap dosage is a bit more straightforward since each cap contains a pre-portioned amount of CBD. The following table is also based on body weight. Gelcap dosage can be modulated by adding a cap as needed. Some Seven Pointss customers are even mixing different strength caps (example: 25mg + 12.5mg for a 37.5mg dose) to create the perfect dose.

 

Recommended Gelcap Dosage

Take twice daily, once upon waking and once approximately 1 hour before sleep

Remember that your individual needs and severity of your particular ailment may dictate heavier or lighter amount of CBD. For example, a 120 pound female suffering from severe insomnia started with 12.5mg Gel-Caps with limited success. She slowly increased her dosage and began getting a full night’s sleep when her dosage reached 50mg. That became her baseline. This is an extreme example but illustrates that each person needs to finds his or her own point of relief.
