The following range of factors can determine the amount of CBD:

  • The condition you're treating

  • And, the concentration of CBD in capsules & gummies

However, before taking CBD, it is recommended to consult your doctor. If the doctor recommends the average dose of CBD, stick to that amount. However, if the doctor doesn’t suggest a particular amount of product, you can start with a lower dosage and increase it gradually.

So, there's no universally agreed amount of CBD dosage and you have to keep in mind the factors discussed before to determine the right amount of CBD dosage. It is recommended to "start small and go slow" to track the progress and analyze what amount works best for you.
