CBD Dosing Guide

CBD Dosing is more art than just mere science. Every Cannabidiol/ Marijuana product that you buy comes with guidelines to take that product. However, users' experience can still vary. There are a few factors which can affect the consumption quantity.

Factors Like

Body Weight

Body Chemistry

Sensitivity/tolerance

Your age

Health status

The bad news is that the FDA is not regulating it, so there is no official data available for its dosage. However, there are some best practices that people can follow.
