How much CBD do you need?
This varies largely on what type of CBD product you’re taking and their oncentrations of CBD, the size of the user and the severity of the condition being treated can all play a role. CBD oil may come in a pure isolated form in which you would only take a couple of milligrams compared to a full spectrum CBD oil which is a less refined version containing a bunch of other cannabinoids and plant molecules where one would take up to 100mg daily.
