There are so many different CBD products available, and it is still a relatively new treatment for a variety of needs, so one question we often hear is

“How much CBD is the right amount?”

While there’s not an exact answer to this right now, we can give you recommendations and starting points that you can then experiment with. To learn more about our CBD and hemp products, you can contact Wild West Weed & Seed!

The main factors to consider when figuring out the right CBD dose are:

• Type of CBD

• Weight

• Pain

The Types Of CBD

First of all, we need to distinguish between full-spectrum CBD and CBD-isolate, because their effectiveness has been said to differ dramatically.

Full-Spectrum CBD

This type of CBD is derived from the whole plant, and includes (always less than) 0.3% THC. Full-spectrum CBD is preferred by those who want the inclusion of plant terpenes.


The other type of CBD is a pure isolated cannabidiol with plant material removed. It is a lower cost per milligram, however the terpenes are said to be important in the healing aspects of CBD.

In most cases, the full-spectrum CBD is more expensive, but it is said to be far more powerful due to the plant terpenes.

Weight & Pain

The amount of CBD to take will generally vary depending on your weight and how much pain you are in. The chart below represents our recommended dosage based on our full-spectrum CBD products. If you are taking CBD-isolate, your dosages may need to be increased.

If you are wondering who is under 25 LBS, CBD is also widely used for pets in the US. As of now, sale of CBD products is only permitted to persons over the age of 18.

Now - how much pain are you in? The good news is, you can't overdose on CBD, and since it only enhances your own body's production of cannabinoids instead of attaching to them directly, there is no chance that too much CBD would cause you to have any problems! One thing that needs to be noted is that one-time use of CBD will not help. Try using it for a few days or weeks consistently before making your mind up about it's potential.

Topical Treatments

When it comes to lotions, balms, and any other topical CBD treatment, it's best to use it like you would with regular products. You'll notice relief much quicker in the specific areas that you apply it on, and we don't think anyone has ever overdosed on lotion!
