CBD DOSAGE

The London Dispensary’s CBD Oils

How much CBD should I take?

How much CBD to take isn’t a straightforward answer, unfortunately. Due to a number of different variables this natural compound needs a little bit of effort to find your optimal dose(mg) of CBD and for which reason you are taking it.

What effects the CBD dosage?

CBD is a personal experience and depends on many variables such as weight, height, metabolism, reason for taking CBD, hydration, when you last ate, time of the day and more.

Bearing that in mind, here is what we recommend and some key points to remember or try while building up to find your optimal dose of CBD:

  • START LOW & GO SLOW – start at a lower dose than the recommended average dose, and slowly build up over several days
  • Keep a mood/effect diary – track  before taking and 30 minutes after, this will help you find your sweet CBD spot
  • All of our CBD oils are broad-spectrum, giving you an entourage effect without any THC
  • Our oils are infused with natural goodness to support CBD, making it highly effective
  • Current science shows that effective dosages are likely higher than many products state – 40-50mg per dose is currently the suggested recommended dose for sleep for example
  •  Do not consume more than 70mg per day, this is the FSAs guidelines
  • Edibles / Ingested CBD have the 70mg guideline, however topical CBD can be used alongside as they do not fall within the guideline limit.

Using the latest science and our extensive knowledge we recommend the following per oil:

Boost Doage
Balance

BED RANGE

10% Sleep Drops

15ml - 30 nights

Our recommendation of 50mg per night has been based on an average user of CBD. This means a person of average weight, age, height, diet, and activity levels, as well as average sensitivity to the ingredients.

CBD is a very personal experience; being a natural compound, it has a wide reach over many areas of the body, unlike chemical compounds that affect our natural chemistry, often leaving us sleepy or groggy the next day if a chemical sleeping aid is taken, CBD does not as it supports and aids the natural processes of the body it does not actually add, alter or block them as such.

Due to this, we advise a START LOW AND GO SLOW method of finding your dose. An example of what this looks like for a new CBD user is in the below table. As we use broad-spectrum CBD and additional blended ingredients, due to many other CBD sleep products being suboptimum CBD isolate, which does not benefit from the entourage effect, we recommend also following this approach.

Day  CBD Dose per night Drops per night
1 to 3 10mg 2
4 to 6 20mg 4
7 to 9 30mg 6
10 to 12 40mg 8
13 onwards 50mg 10

After each third night reflect upon how your sleep has been over the last 3 nights. Decide if you wish to increase or if you are happy with the improvement so far. This is where keeping a little sleep diary to complete each morning to record your sleep quality can really help.

 

Calculations for transparency and if you should wish to alter your own dosage:

Volume 15ml
Drops per 15ml 300
Total CBD (broad-spectrum) 1,500mg (10% of total volume)
CBD per drop 5mg
Recommended CBD Dose per night 50mg
Drops per recommended dose (50mg) 10
Total doses at recommended 50mg 30

How we reached our recommended dose:
We used 4 data points to determine a recommendation of 50mg for Sleep.
1. Regulatory Guidelines
2. Industry baseline
3. Latest Scientific Information Published
4. Our personal experience and knowledge from across the supply chain

30ml - 60 nights

Our recommendation of 50mg per night has been based on an average user of CBD. This means a person of average weight, age, height, diet, and activity levels, as well as average sensitivity to the ingredients.

CBD is a very personal experience; being a natural compound, it has a wide reach over many areas of the body, unlike chemical compounds that affect our natural chemistry, often leaving us sleepy or groggy the next day if a chemical sleeping aid is taken, CBD does not as it supports and aids the natural processes of the body it does not actually add, alter or block them as such.

As we use broad-spectrum CBD and additional blended ingredients, due to many other CBD sleep products being suboptimum CBD isolate, which does not benefit from the entourage effect, we recommend also following this approach.

Please note: due to the high potency of our oils, we recommend using a drop method of dosage. But we do recognise that due to needing a level of sensitivity to feel the drops, as we cannot see inside our mouths even with a mirror, it is a bit tricky (trust us, we tried a lot)  due to this, you will find provided with our 30ml oil, a measuring pipette for those struggling with feeling the drops, or harder of sight (for which we chose the pipette marked with the highest readability as we could source). Dosage advice for both methods is given below:

Day  CBD Dose per night Drops per night Measure per night
1 to 3 10mg 2 0.1ml
4 to 6 20mg 4 0.2ml
7 to 9 30mg 6 0.3ml
10 to 12 40mg 8 0.4ml
13 onwards 50mg 10 0.5ml

After each third night reflect upon how your sleep has been over the last 3 nights. Decide if you wish to increase or if you are happy with the improvement so far. This is where keeping a little sleep diary to complete each morning to record your sleep quality can really help.

Drops per 15ml 600

Recommended CBD Dose per night 50mg

Precautions for Sleep Drops
  • This is a natural product, and as clearly stated on our product page, the packaging and label contain terpenes, which a small percentage of the population can have sensitivity or allergies to. Terpenes are so common in day-to-day herbs, plants, oils etc it is not normally unknown if you are one of these individuals by a certain age in life.
  • There is a lot we still do not know about nature, we know that at a certain level, the terpenes in our Sleep Drop blend support restful sleep, but we have also discovered that in a higher quantity, these terpenes can have the opposite effect, which is not advantageous to helping sleep.
  • Due to this, at least 6 hours prior to taking the Sleep Drops, please do not ingest any food or drink that contains high levels of Limonene or Linalool, which are naturally in high levels found in but not limited to: citrus fruit (grapefruit we already scientifically know increases the effect of medications), citrus tea/waters, chamomile tea.
  • Additionally due to l-theanine being an ingredient green tea should also be avoided 6 hours prior to taking the Sleep Drops.
  • Find out more about sleep terpenes and l-theanine and their effects on sleep.

Please note: Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat or prevent any illness or disease. Our recommendation is based on personal accounts and does not constitute medical advice, and is not made by a medical professional and cannot be deemed differently.

For All Oils

Additional Information & Disclaimer

Our additional nootropic and adaptogen blended ingredients have been developed to complement our broad-spectrum CBD using science-backed recommended ratios. This is to help optimise your wellness. We recommend to not supplement additionally with any of our ingredients when taking our oils, to ensure the benefits stay optimal for you.

You can split your dosage up throughout the day. Depending on your requirements. CBD is stored and metabolised in fats; eating a healthy fat meal close to taking CBD has been shown to help retain the benefits of CBD actively in your body for longer.

It can take up to 6 days on average to feel the full physical effect of CBD, be patient.

There are 200 drops per 10ml of oil.

All of our wellness-supporting natural oil blends come with a glass pipette with ml markings etched into them, and internal pipette ‘wipers’ to ensure not a single drop gets wasted as you remove the pipette.

Notes for dosing CBD and administering CBD (the legal bits)

Important Advice: Even with a wealth of CBD studies that have found that far higher dosages increase effectiveness for some uses. As well as minimal or no adverse effects being seen in dosages of up to 1500mg a day. We do not advise or encourage taking these large doses and advise you to stay following the current limited FSA guidance that recommends taking no more than 70mg of CBD per day for every adult, irrespective of the large variations in reasons for taking CBD seen in the population. We will update our recommendations as regulators start to keep pace with the available science in the future.

Our products strictly follow the FSA guidance that they should only be taken by those over 18 years of age and classified as legal adults.

Our products are sold as dietary supplements and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any illnesses or diseases. Like every CBD product on the market, usage of our products is based on anecdotal feedback and studies that the MHRA or FDA has not verified. It does not constitute a medication. We recommend you conduct your own balanced research from impartial sources before taking any CBD-based products to ensure they are right for you.

Adverse effects are very rare and generally mild if experienced at all, however if they do occur while taking CBD or any other ingredient stop use and seek medical advise if they persist.

Super!

I wasn't sure what to expect as I was a heavy weed smoker for many years and quit shortly before ordering so my main concern was anxiety and getting to sleep but these tasty treats knocked both out the park, having both a soothing sleep and calming me down during day to day activities I was super impressed. I'll be ordering my monthly product for sure and will recommend to my friends and family ! Thank you !!

Hi Leon, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your CBD Fruit Jellies. It is great to hear they have been a successful replacement for you! Also, that you were so impressed that you would recommend us to friends and family, thank you! We are glad we could live up to expectations for you, all the best, The London Dispensary Team

High Strength CBD Cream | Muscle and Joints | 1000mg
Susana M. (England, United Kingdom)
Great product

When Royal Mail delivered my order to the wrong address, this company sorted the matter immediarely even though it was a Sunday
The packaging was amazing but the actual product was the star of the show. The silky smooth cream, smells lovely and glides smoothly and easily into skin. Purchased to ease pain from a recent replaced shoulder operation., the smoothing effect was felt within a few minutes. Used sparing and reapplied every few hours the cream has helped immensely in managing my constant pain.

Hello Susana, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your order. It is always nice to hear the benefits a customer has from using one of our products. Thank you, and wishing you a speedy recovery, The London Dispensary Team

10% CBD Sleep Drops w/ Terpenes & L-theanine
Donna (Scotland, United Kingdom)
Repeat purchase - this stuff works!

This is helping me get to sleep and stay asleep. Highly recommend.

Hi Donna, thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your CBD Sleep Drops, and for your repeat purchase! Great to hear they are helping you achieve better sleep. All the best, The London Dispensary Team

Love these!

These gummies are totally delicious! Best way of taking supplements. I have to remind myself to only have two (-:
I first took them after having a few hours sleep following a night shift. Usually I'd be so tired afterwards I'd have to chill out for the rest of the day but this time I had the energy to clean the whole house and do all the things I would have left till later in the week, when I'd have the energy to face them. Amazing! I totally recommend.

Hi Sumitra, thank you for sharing your review with us. We definitely relate to the self control needed for just the 2 gummies a day! That is some very impressive productivity. So pleased you felt a benefit and would recommend the CBD gummies! Hopefully, you still get to chill out, but now knowing you have everything out the way already. All the best, The London Dispensary Team

Wonderful

The best gummies I have tried. The taste and texture are exactly like sweets but they give a lovely calming effect. The packaging is amazing, I wish everything came in packaging like this.

Hi Rachel,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. It is great to hear you think they are the best CBD gummies you have tried and that you liked our packaging. We also think everything should be packaged like this, especially as it's all 100% recyclable and made with sustainable materials too! All the best, The London Dispensary Team
