Before we talk dosage, here’s a quick overview of how CBD gummies work.
Keep slowly and steadily increasing your dose like this until you get you a dose that’s comfortable and effective for you. For most people, this is around 10-40mg of CBD. If at any point you feel like the effects are too strong, you can always drop back down to your last comfortable dose.
How do CBD gummies work?
CBD gummies are eaten just like regular sweets. Some of the CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream through the blood vessels in your mouth, and the rest is absorbed via your digestive system and liver.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a substance extracted from the oil of the hemp plant. It can be used to make a variety of products like CBD oil, capsules, creams, balms, and of course, gummies.
Yes! If you want to experience subtle benefits throughout the day, you can take CBD gummies two or three times a day as needed.
They are easy to make, and you get the added benefit of deciding what goes into them. The homemade ones may not have as long a shelf life as packaged gummies, but the process is fun and simple, so you may not find it to be an inconvenience.

This, like the dosage, varies from person to person. It may take 30 minutes or more before you start to feel the effects. In the trial period, when you are still figuring out what dosage works for you, note how long they take to kick in and to wear out. This information, together with how they affect you, will help you decide when and how often you should take them.
One way to determine the right dosage for you is to start by buying gummies with a low dosage, like 2 mg or 5 mg. Start by eating one and seeing how it affects you. Increase the number until you feel you are getting the desired effect.
Research is still ongoing, but according to some researchers, you can safely consume up to 1,500 mg of CBD without experiencing adverse effects. If you buy the premade CBD gummies, the packet may state the amount of CBD per gummy or give the amount of CBD in the whole bottle.
