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.

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.

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.

CBD Muscle Balm | Warming | 500mg
Roland D. (England, United Kingdom)
Excellent warming rub for injuries

I purchased this cream along with the CDB balm and the combination is working well, especially with this creams warming effect. You don’t to use much of either and so this will be part of my injury recovery regime going forward.

Hi Roland, great to hear you found the combination of the CBD cream and CBD muscle balm to be effective as part of your injury recovery regime. We hope you are recovering well. Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. The London Dispensary Team

High Strength CBD Cream | Muscle and Joints | 1000mg
Roland D. (England, United Kingdom)
Excellent cream for sports injuries

I got this cream having done some research on CBD creams for sports injuries and was for a glute injury. This cream is great and is definitely working for me so will keep using on this and other injuries no doubt.

Hi Roland, thank you for taking the time to leave your review of your CBD Cream and how it has been effective for your sports injury. We are pleased it has been working for you, hopefully you do not sustain any other injuries, but if you unfortunately do, we hope the cream can be equally effective for you with them as well!

Such an attractive product

Package arrived swiftly.
Presentation was delightful.
I cannot comment on the product as I bought it for a gift but other products I have used myself have been extremely attractive and therapeutic.
I Highly recommend this company.

High Strength CBD Cream | Muscle and Joints | 1000mg
Susana M. (England, United Kingdom)
Second Purchase as the first was so effective.

Great product. Certainly find it invaluable as I shattered my shoulder joint last year and now have a replacement. This wonderful balm reduces considerably the incessant ache in my arm and shoulder . It seems to work when the strongest oral analgesics have very little effect.

Hello Susana,
Thank you for leaving a wonderful review of our CBD Cream. Sorry to hear about your shoulder troubles, but we are thankful the cream has been able to provide better relief for your shoulder pain. All the best, The London Dispensary Team

Grow Your Wellness | Gummies Subscribe & Save
Charles (England, United Kingdom)
The whole package!

This is a great product, the gummies are fantastic and seem to be the only ones of their kind for the make-up they are. However, you shouldn't just stop there. The thought about the quality of the containers for storage, the packaging for delivery, the communication about your ordering, the attentive customer service.
This is the whole package, I'm honestly thinking about how I can invest!
Refreshingly brilliant!

Hi Charles, Thank you so much for your great review of our subscription gummies. We are pleased to hear that our attention to detail has been delivering a positive experience for you as a subscription holder. We set out with the aim of making sure customers were reminded of how, we believe, they should feel when choosing to spend with a brand. We are glad our approach has been a refreshing one for you. Thanks again, The London Dispensary Team

10% CBD Sleep Drops w/ Terpenes & L-theanine
ANN P. (England, United Kingdom)
CBD Sleep Drops

These sleep drops have been a godsend. Bad habits were part of my daily pattern - working too late and reading into the night. Once these habits were ditched sleep still evaded me. The drops now ensure that almost every night I fall asleep easily and go back to sleep if I have to get up in the night. it has made a massive difference to me as previously I would have had to survive on 2 or 3 hours of sleep. Worth every penny.

Hi Ann,
Thank you so much for sharing what a positive impact the CBD Sleep Drops have had on your sleep routine. It is always great to hear we have been able to help customers make such a difference to their overall wellness using our products; that is why we do what we do! It is also great to hear you think they are worth every penny for the sleep support you have achieved using them. Wishing you many more peaceful nights of sleep to come! The London Dispensary Team

CBD Muscle Balm | Warming | 500mg
Louisa (England, United Kingdom)
It worked for me

I found this product effective to reduce tennis elbow and post exercise aches and pains. The jar lasts a long time as a little goes a long way. I prefer the fragrance of the CBD cream but the balm is more effective in my opinion, particularly if you apply overnight.

Hi Louisa, We love hearing this! Thank you for sharing your experience with our CBD Muscle Balm. It's great to hear you're getting effective relief from the balm, especially with overnight application and for sporting recovery. Thank you for your review. The London Dispensary Team

10% CBD Sleep Drops w/ Terpenes & L-theanine
Simon B. (England, United Kingdom)
Definitely do the trick!

Purchased these drops to compensate for the fact I’m no longer able to smoke due to a chronic chest condition and was having difficulty sleeping since I gave up… definitely helps with the sleep and also goes some way to replace the relaxation I had evenings doing it the ‘old fashioned way’ ! Would definitely recommend for anyone else in my situation 😊

Hi Simon, Thank you for leaving your review of the CBD Sleep Drops. It is great to hear that they have been having a positive effect on your sleep so much that you would recommend them to others!
Thank you,
The London Dispensary Team
