Interest in CBD is huge and growing, particularly among new medical marijuana patients who don't want to get high. But many health professionals have little experience with cannabis therapeutics and have a hard time guiding people in this area.

An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams of CED-enriched cannabis oil to a gram or more. Begin with a small dose of high CBD/low THC oil, especially if you have little or no experience with marijuana. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount. Don't overdo it. Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, which means that low and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate. Too much THC, while not lethal, can amplify anxiety and mood disorders. CBD has no known adverse side effects, but an excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. "Less is more" is often the case with respect to cannabis therapy.
