If you spend any amount of time online then you've probably heard or read about the explosion that is the CBD industry. From 2014 to 2019 alone, [url=https://www.statista.com/statistics/760498/total-us-cbd-sales/]CBD industry sales[/url] have increased by over $700 million. And that number is projected to increase to total consumer sales of over $1.8 billion by 2022.
With all this hype, could the benefits CBD promises actually be true? After all, most drugs promise to relieve your symptoms only to provide a barrage of negative side effects. And those warnings about overdoses can be scary if you need a high dose for relief.
But CBD is different. Pure, THC-free cannabidiol oil can offer you astounding levels of relief for multiple ailments. Meanwhile, it has very few mild side effects and no known lethal dose.
Want to know the truth about taking too much CBD? Keep reading and I'll guide you through the right way to dose CBD so you won't experience any negative side effects.
[b]CBD: The Basics [/b]
Cannabidiol AKA CBD is a component of the hemp plant known for its medical benefits. Unlike THC, though, cannabidiol can't get you high. It actually can reduce the effects of THC when administered alongside it.
Instead, the cannabinoid is best known for its medical benefits.
So far, research has found cannabidiol can help with severe depression and [url=https://www.givology.org/~kelbolton/blog/588656/]generalized anxiety disorder[/url], post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe epilepsy, inflammatory diseases, and many different types of pain disorders.
You can even give CBD to your pets to help relieve anxiety or pain in older animals.
If you're taking advantage of the pain-relieving [url=https://stemedix.com/blog/5-benefits-of-stem-cells-and-how-cbd-can-help-with-treatment/]benefits of stem cells[/url], CBD can improve the effects. It does so by increasing endogenous stem cells and providing its own analgesic effects.
With all these health pluses, though, you must be wondering about the side effects. Most modern medicines that provide such miracle-like benefits come with a slew of ugly symptoms. Worst of all, some drugs have the potential for overdose, which can lead to death.
[b]Can You Take Too Much CBD? [/b]
So what's the bottom line? Can you experience a CBD overdose?
According to a [url=https://www.cboutlook.com/Hurd_2017_Pendulum_CBD4OUD.pdf]2017 study[/url], CBD has an extremely low association with lethality. It is not a rewarding drug, which means it has no potential for addiction or abuse. No fatal overdoses of CBD have ever been reported even when administered at staggeringly high doses.
However, some people may experience mild side effects like:

At the same time, CBD is synergistic. This means it can increase the medical benefits of a drug like morphine even when morphine is administered at a smaller dose.
There are many ways to administer CBD. You can [url=https://www.givology.org/~MickieEngelman/blog/676058/]smoke or vaporize[/url] THC-free, cannabidiol rich flower. If you prefer oils or tinctures, CBD oil can be ingested orally or rubbed into the skin like an ointment.
The best way to take CBD oil is in pill form since the dose is already premeasured for ingestion.
[b]How to Dose CBD Oil [/b]
As with any drug, the amount you take will contribute to the negative side effects you experience.
Yet the federal and state legal battles are making it difficult for the FDA to weigh in. CBD doesn't have an [url=https://medium.com/cbd-origin/whats-the-best-cbd-dosage-81ec4f95503b]official dosing guide[/url] since the FDA hasn't published a Recommended Daily Intake (RDI).
While researchers determine the best doses for weight, body mass, and the severity of symptoms being treated, there are some ways you can determine the right dose for you. Here's a CBD dosage calculator to help you find the perfect amount of CBD oil.
For every 10 pounds of your body weight, take 1-6MG of CBD oil.
While this is a broad range, it gives plenty of room for adjusting the dose if you don't feel relief. Similarly, if you start higher and experience unwanted side effects, you can lower your dose until you find the perfect amount.
The purest CBD oil will offer the most robust effects. And remember that any THC content (even as small as %0.3) may cause negative symptoms that aren't associated with the cannabidiol itself.
[b]The Best Time to Take CBD Oil [/b]
Depending on the type of symptoms you are trying to relieve, you should take your CBD oil at different times throughout the day.
For instance, if you'd like to take advantage of the insomnia-relieving effects of CBD oil then you can take it a half hour before bed. Those who use cannabidiol for its anxiolytic effects can take CBD in the morning with other vitamins and supplements.
Make sure to talk to your doctor about taking CBD with already prescribed medications.
[b]The Final Word on CBD [/b]
