How much CBD should I take?

Everyone’s body is different, so the amount of CBD that will be right for you will depend on your own experience but as you will not feel high and as long as you stay within the recommended guidance there are no side effects to worry about.

We recommend thinking about the number of milligrams (mg) that you take daily.  The Food Standards Agency in the UK recommends that you do not take more than 70mg each day without first speaking to your doctor, so we suggest that you keep within that guidance.

Columbia Care Platinum is available in two formats intended to make it easy for you to work out what suits you.

When consuming the oil, it is easy to see how much you are going to use from the graded pipette.  The oil all contains 100mg CBD per mL so if you are looking for 50mg, then you just need to get 0.5mL measured in the pipette.  For 30mg, then it’s 0.3mL.

The softgel capsules contain 30mg each, so you can choose whether to take one or to take two.

The thing to bear in mind with CBD is that consistency is more important than taking a particular amount.  If you are not sure, then start with 30mg a day and work up from there.   This will give you plenty of opportunity to increase the dose.

How do I take the oil?

Drop the amount of oil you wish to use under your tongue and hold there for at least 30 seconds. Swallow the rest and carry on with your day!


Why does CBD go under your tongue?

“The area beneath your tongue is full of capillaries. When you place liquids beneath your tongue they are absorbed into the bloodstream, bypassing your stomach and liver, making it one of the fastest ways to take CBD.


What time of day should I take CBD?

There isn’t one answer for this. It all depends on you, your body, your reason for taking it and most importantly how you can fit it into your daily routine to ensure that it becomes a constant.

We recommend taking CBD with a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner)

We suggest using the first 3-4 weeks of taking CBD to explore how your body reacts and then working out how CBD oil can best fit into your life
