Which CBD Dosage Is Right for Me?

“How much CBD is the right amount? It’s a question we get a lot and one that we appreciate. We started The Hemp Division because we wanted to provide high-quality, all-natural CBD products that you could trust and that would improve your quality of life. Knowing how much CBD is the right amount is an important part of that outcome.

Unfortunately, there is no one right answer. Discovering your best self with CBD is a unique journey for us all. A dose that works for you may not be the best one for your partner, friend, or co-worker, because how our bodies react to CBD can be quite different. Here’s a quick overview of why that is:

CBD stands for “cannabidiol,” one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Cannabinoids are active compounds that interact with our body’s endocannabinoid receptors to produce effects that mimic our body’s own neurotransmitters. The endocannabinoid system is a complex cell-signaling system that plays a role in regulating a wide range of functions and processes, including sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and fertility.

In addition to interacting with our individual endocannabinoid receptors, how CBD affects us also has to do with our weight and unique body chemistry. So while your friend’s perfect level of CBD may be 25 MG, it may not be yours.

So how do you find your CBD sweet spot? We suggest trying this approach.

Start Small

If you’re just getting started, you may want to experiment with lower CBD levels found in our bottled beverages and hot teas—and then tune in to how your body responds. Some products to try include:

  • Calm. This 9 MG hot tea also contains turmeric and ginger for added wellness goodness.
  • Center. A hemped-up version of our sister company’s best-selling Hot Cinnamon Spice tea, this hot tea contains 8 MG of CBD.
  • Rest. Our delicious Butterfly Pea Flower lemonade is caffeine-free and sports just 15 mg of CBD.
  • Chill. A delightful chamomile mint hot tea with 16 MG of CBD.
  • Siesta. Also, caffeine-free, this 18 MG CBD blood orange brew also has no calories or sugar, just great taste and relaxing properties.

Ready for More?

After trying products with lower levels of CBD, move the dial up a bit to see if more CBD is what you desire or if you need to dial it back down. Monitor how your body reacts to products like these with increased amounts of CBD:

  • Focus. With 20 MG of CBD, this hot tea is made with yerba mate, yaupon, and mint. While yerba mate and yaupon pack a caffeinated punch, the addition of CBD helps slow down the caffeine release, so you get a smoother caffeine “buzz” than you would without.
  • Boom. Treat yourself to 22 MG of CBD alongside the flavors of chocolate and coconut in this hot tea.
  • Sleep. As the name suggests, the ingredients in this hot tea – holy basil and coconut, along with 25 MG of CBD – can help you achieve a good night’s rest.
  • Cold Drinks. With the exception of Rest and Siesta, our cold drinks -- including our awesome Orange Mango and Tangy Lime elixirs and CBD coffee elixirs, Ace and Lift -- all contain anywhere from 20-30 MG of CBD. Pick and choose the tastes and levels that appeal to you.
  • CBD Shots. Tiny but mighty CBD shots give you a quick burst of hemp goodness. Packed with 30 MG of CBD in a 2 oz. bottle, enjoy either Green Tea & Honey or Ginger Turmeric – or both! Each little bottle is chock full of wellness ingredients that will add a powerful boost to your day.
  • Gummies. A recent addition to our product line, CBD gummies are an easy, convenient way to incorporate CBD into your routine. Each of our Hot Cinnamon or Matcha Raspberry wellness gummies contains 25 MG per serving.

You Can Always DIY

Instead of ordering directly off the menu, you can build your own CBD taco, if you will, by incorporating our Rest tinctures, which come in 1200 MG and 3000 MG. Add as much or as little as you’d like to either a CBD beverage to boost its levels or a non-CBD beverage to give it a little extra oomph. The tinctures have the added benefit of being flexible with your CBD levels depending on your desired outcomes. They’re a great way to tailor your CBD intake to your specific desires.

Because It’s All About You

Whether for mood, relaxation, pain relief, better sleep, or other benefits, you determine your personal goals and monitor your body’s response to build your ideal routine for the morning, midday, evening, and night. No matter your individual goals, you can create a stronger connection with your body. Experiment and discover what works best. There is no one-size-fits-all dose… there’s just whatever works for you. Enjoy your journey of discovery!
