CBD Gummies Dosage Guide: How Much Should You Take?

CBD’s rising popularity is well known, but there are so many different ways for you to ingest CBD and the number of products, edibles, foods, drinks, candies, and oils are increasing every year. You may have figured out how much CBD oil is right for you to get a good night’s sleep or to relieve anxiety, but how does that dosage translate into gummies?


Gummies are a great way to get your dose of CBD because they are easy to transport, delicious to eat, and inconspicuous. If you're at all shy about telling the world you’re taking CBD, there’s nothing easier than popping a CBD gummy in your mouth while you’re out and about; no one will bat an eye at a quick gummy.


Gummies can be perfect for a quick anxiety reliever or to ease chronic pain. All of the benefits that you can get from CBD oil can come from a gummy. But how do you know how many gummies you should take? In this article we’ll attempt to answer that question. 

Figuring out the right dosage for you

CBD gummy dosages are relatively easy to figure because each package is marked with the amount of CBD contained in the gummy. HARA CBD gummies come in packages of either ten or thirty gummies each, with each gummy containing 10mg of CBD. 


The amount you take depends on several factors. First, it depends on the desired effect you want the gummy to have (the higher the dose, the stronger the effect). Second, your body size matters a great deal in taking CBD products, because the bigger a person you are, the more CBD you need to make a difference in your pain or mood. 


Start Slow

We recommend that you start slow taking CBD gummies (or any CBD product). Everyone will react slightly differently to CBD, and while side effects are rare, and it’s hard to take too much, you will want to ease yourself into the experience gently to make sure that its having the desired effect without any possible problems. 


Therefore, generally we recommend that you start with a single 10 mg gummy and see how it affects you. Your body can acclimate to the dose and you can see if it’s sufficient or if you need more. After taking the 10mg dose for several days, if you wish to increase it, we recommend bumping it up by one half or one more gummy and then, again, reevaluating. We have a helpful chart at the bottom of this article.

Is it possible to eat too many CBD gummies?

As mentioned, CBD has very few side effects, and the ones that it has are considered uncommon. That said, there is always a danger of taking too much. Don’t worry: they’re non-toxic. But they do have a strength and potency to them that you might not be ready for. 


One of the potential pitfalls of CBD gummies is that they look and taste like candy, but they should definitely not be popped into the mouth as easily and often as standard gummy candy.


There is no known lethal dose of CBD. Studies have been done with patients taking as much as 750mg per day, but this is very common and used in extreme circumstances. 

How many CBD gummies should I take?

How many gummies you should take depends on the following factors:


Bodyweight

Your weight is crucial to determining the dose of a CBD gummy, because your weight says a lot about both your ability to absorb CBD but also your metabolism. Heavier people will need to take a higher dose than lighter people to achieve the same result, generally speaking. 


Severity of Problem

The difference in the amount of CBD that you take will depend a great deal on the problem that you’re trying to solve with the CBD. If you’re having mild anxiety you will obviously take a smaller dose than if you’re having major panic. The same can be said about pain leves: if you’re in a lot of pain, you will want to take more than you would for just some achy joints. 


Tolerance

The more you take CBD products, the more you build up a natural acclimation to them. While your first low dose of CBD gummies might have a powerful effect, that same dose might not have nearly the same effect after a year of taking CBD.


Concentration

Always be mindful of the concentration in the gummies. Not all gummies are made with the same concentration, which is measured in milligrams. While all of HARA’s gummies are 10 mg per gummy, other manufacturers can have as much as 25 mg per gummy. Be sure to read the labels.
