As for any medicine, you must keep using it until you complete the prescribed dosage. Hemp oil is similar because if you need to experience its effects, you must regularly take it to ensure that you feel better. This guide will reveal the proper hemp oil dosage for pain.
Important dosage factors
The best dosage of hemp oil is generally based on the following factors.
Bodyweight: A person’s weight often determines the effect of the oil on the body. In general, heavier people need higher doses to feel the effects; thinner people, on the other hand, experience the same effects with a smaller dose.
Desired effects: the optimal dose depends on the level of pain or discomfort. A person with chronic pain or severe anxiety may require a higher dose to relieve symptoms, while a person with a milder condition needs a lower dose with less intense effects.
Tolerance: Consumers may establish tolerance over time, which may lead to a reduction in effects with the same dose. So higher doses are required to achieve the desired results.
|Weight||Mild Effects||Moderate Effects||Strong Effects|
|Light (less than 130 lbs.)||11 mg or less||12 mg to 14 mg||15 mg to 17 mg|
|Medium (130 to 230 lbs.)||18 mg or less||19 mg to 23 mg||24 mg to 27 mg|
|Heavy (more than 230 lbs.)||23 mg or less||24 mg to 30 mg||31 mg to 45 mg|
Here’s a teaspoon-to-milliliter (volume of liquid) conversion. This shows the milligrams (amount of active ingredient) in a 50 mg./per serving example:
- 1/2 (2.46 ml.) = 125 mg
- 1 (5 ml) = 250 mg.
