Cannabis medicine is very individual. A good starting point is a website called ProjectCBD.org, there you can find a general dosing guide. For CBD and also for THC here are some points that ProjectCBD recommends...
- Begin with a low dose especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis.
- Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
- Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount. So start low and slow and increase as needed to get the desired result. If you slowly build up to 10 drops, for instance, and you pain has decreased or has disappeared, then that would be your optimal dose...stick with that. It also depends on the strength of your CBD medicine. If you have a highly concentrated CBD tonic/tincture, then you would not need as many drops as a tonic that had much less CBD..its important to know how many milligrams of CBD is in the bottle.
