How much Hemp Oil Extract or Capsules should I take?
The recommended starting serving size is about a half a dropper, which equates to about 0.5 mL of oil. This is depending upon which strength you are taking. Research has shown that CBD and other cannabinoids in hemp oil reach peak absorption in about 1/2 hour and so you should feel a very mild relaxation at the correct dose. CBD will stay with you for around 12 hours so it is best to repeat your dose am and pm to get a balanced effect. When you take CBD for a couple days you develop a stable blood levels so it is best to take several doses to achieve a beneficial effect. As for capsules start with one twice a day, we formulated our capsules with 50 mg of CBD and CBD-A which is a good starting dose for most people. You can increase the dose of our Hemp oils but do so slowly to reach a desired effect.
