Schizophrenia: 40-1,280 mg CBD by mouth every day for up to four weeks.

According to CannLabs, the comprehensive testing laboratory for cannabis products, there is no lethal dose of CBD. CBD has no known adverse side effects at any dose. But drug interactions can be problematic. Consumers should carefully read the product inserts to ensure that they are taking the correct amount of CBD. And if possible, they should contact the attending physician with any questions or concerns.
The effective dosage for personal use; the CBD is treated as a supplement. When you start your intake with CBD oil, start with a few drops a day, or a capsule of a few milligrams. Wait a few days and see how you feel. The CDB assay aims to reach the point requested by your endocannabinoid system. It is better to start small and gradually increase the doses. For example, take 3 doses at 10% per day for 1-2 weeks, then, if necessary, increase the first week take 1 dose at 20% then 2 to 10%, the second week go to 2 doses 20% and 1 to 10% to reach 3 doses 20% the third week. If you feel the need to increase the doses, it is recommended to do so gradually in one-week cycles.
What works for your friend may not work for you. Finding the right dose takes time, effort and understanding but is incredibly rewarding, sometimes it takes a little patience.
