If you were to look at the suggested servings on various bottles of CBD Oil, they would likely all be similar.
But how do these labels know what you are using CBD for? How do they know your body weight? Or the state of your endocannabinoid system?
The truth is, while good for general guidance, these suggested servings may or may not be suitable for you.
In this article, we will explore if CBD is the right choice for you as an individual. And if so, how often you should use it.
The Foundations of Health & Wellbeing
Before thinking about trying any supplements, it's always best to make sure that your body is getting what it needs to function properly. As often, these basic needs are neglected.
We all know the bare essentials - a healthy & balanced diet, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, spending time outdoors… In many cases, focussing on these alone can do a world of good, depending on the individual.
But as humans, we are complex creatures and have many boxes to tick for our health and well-being to be truly optimised.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs, pictured below, does a good job of summarising the various aspects needed in order for us to thrive.

So, are there things on this pyramid that you are lacking? Can they be addressed?
While some of these aspects may not be possible for you as an individual, they are still worth thinking about before spending your hard-earned cash on supplements.
CBD & Cannabinoid Uses
Now that we've covered the basic foundations of health, let's discuss how cannabinoids could fit into your life.
Many people find that cannabinoids can be a great tool to complement an already healthy lifestyle. Let's face it, life is a rollercoaster and sometimes we need some extra help to get by.
The vast majority of our customers (~80%) find our products to have a positive effect on their health and well-being. Whether that be through helping them to keep calm, improving general mood, or otherwise.
Some also seek CBD and cannabinoid products to help with specific medical conditions, but as a food supplement/cosmetics company, we are not qualified to advise on such matters. If this is you, you should talk to your doctor and/or do some research on your end.
It's important to note that CBD products are not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. And those taking any medicines should check with a doctor to determine if there could be any interactions with CBD.
Cannabinoids interact with our endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in balancing a huge range of biological functions. This is probably why people report that CBD helps with so many different issues.
At the end of the day, no one knows you better than you do, so we recommend educating yourself as much as possible, and then deciding if it's right for you.
How Often To Use CBD
As mentioned in the introduction, the suggested servings on CBD bottles are rather generalised and may not be right for your situation.
The best advice is to start low and then gradually increase each week until you get the best results. However, cannabinoids do not have to be used every day. Some people like to have a bottle of CBD Oil to be used as and when needed, which is also fine.
At the end of the day, the optimal dose and frequency depend on so many different factors that it really comes down to personal experimentation to find what works best for you.
