Exhale CBD Dosage Charts



CBD Dosage Chart

New to CBD? Having trouble figuring out your perfect dosage? Check out our CBD Dosage Chart and guide so you can become an expert in no time!

General Guidelines – CBD Dosage Chart

We generally recommend between 0.25 mg (for a regular dose) to 0.5 mg (for a strong dose) of CBD (cannabidiol) per every 1 lb of body weight.

  • Example 1: I weigh 130 lbs and want to take a regular dose. I should multiply my weight by 0.25 to get mg of CBD (130 lbs x 0.25 = mg).
  • Example 2: I weigh 165 lbs and want to take a strong dose. I should multiply my weight by 0.5 to get mg of CBD (165 lbs x 0.5 = mg).

CBD Dosage Strengths & Frequency

Regular Dose: Can be taken for a daily wellness boost.

Strong Dose: If a regular dose isn’t strong enough, try doubling your dosage amount to a strong dose.

Dosing Frequency: We recommend consuming or applying a dose once to twice per day or as needed for the most effective benefits. 

Are you new to CBD? Or maybe it’s been a while and you need a quick refresher on how to consume the new product you just picked up? You’ve come to the right place — Exhale Wellness is more than happy to help with the CBD dosage chart.

We realize that CBD (or cannabidiol) is becoming more popular each day, and with mainstream popularity comes new products, more ways to utilize CBD, and a lot more questions. That’s why we’ve created this CBD dosing chart!

Since CBD isn’t fully regulated, there are no official guidelines for dosing. Fortunately, we’ve worked with scientists and experts in the field to thoroughly test and examine different concentrations of CBD to create this helpful dosing chart (and tons of high-quality products). We hope this can help you get off on the right foot with CBD and help you continue your wellness journey!

CBD Gummies Dosing Chart 

Highlights: These delicious CBD gummies are fruity, pre-measured, and discreet, so you can take them with you anywhere you go.

Usage: CBD oil can be applied sublingually (dropped underneath your tongue) or orally ingested (you can add it to your food and drinks, too!). When used sublingually, effects should begin within 15-30 minutes post-usage. Make sure you hold the preferred dosage underneath your tongue for about 90 seconds before swallowing to achieve desired effects.

750mg CBD Gummies – 1 gummy = 25 mg CBD | 30 gummies in bottle | 750mg total CBD

1500mg CBD Gummies – 1 gummy = 50 mg CBD | 30 gummies in bottle | 1500mg total CBD

CBD Oils Dosing Chart 

Highlights: CBD oil tincture is easy to measure with the provided eyedropper tool. Our CBD oil consists of two main ingredients that are 100% natural, organic, and non-GMO: CBD and hemp oil.

Usage: CBD oil can be applied sublingually (or dropped underneath your tongue) or orally ingested (you can add it to your food and drinks, too!). When applied sublingually, effects should begin about 15-30 minutes after application. Be sure to hold your preferred dosage underneath your tongue for about 90 seconds before swallowing to achieve desired effects.

Like with CBD gummies, you’ll generally feel CBD’s effects 45 minutes to an hour after orally ingesting CBD oil through food or drinks.

600mg CBD Oil Tincture – 1 drop = 2 mg CBD | 300 drops in bottle | 600mg total CBD

1200mg CBD Oil Tincture – 1 drop = 2 mg CBD | 600 drops in bottle | 1200mg total CBD

CBD Dosage Chart – Important Information

When consuming CBD, it’s important to remember that all recommendations are simply that- recommendations. Don’t take the above CBD dosage chart too strictly. You can adjust it as per your needs. Everyone’s built differently, and that’s why CBD affects everyone differently.

There are no official guidelines or verified medical recommendations for how you should consume your CBD, so it’s especially important that you listen to your body and what feels best for it. What may feel like a low dose for someone with medium tolerance may feel like a higher dose for someone with a low tolerance.

It’s also important to remember that many factors affect how your body processes CBD. How much you’ve slept, eaten, and drank all will affect how CBD feels to you. Your age, weight, and tolerance levels also play a big factor. This also depends on how you consume your CBD (someone smoking CBD flower will have a much different experience than someone who prefers to eat gummies).

Can You Take Too Much CBD? Can You Overdose?

No, you cannot overdose or take too much CBD! While taking more than your suggested dose may cause you to feel minor side effects (like increased drowsiness or mild stomach upset), you won’t be able to overdose on CBD. Since cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body and not within the brain stem itself, it’s not possible to experience a lethal overdose from CBD consumption.

Although CBD is well-tolerated by most individuals, here are some possible side effects that may occur as a result of consuming higher doses of CBD:

  • You may begin to feel sleepy, drowsy, or lethargic.
  • Your appetite and mood may shift.
  • In some cases, you may experience queasiness or diarrhea.

That being said, side effects are usually mild and short-lived in nature (if experienced at all) and usually fade away quickly. Side effects are also less likely to occur once you begin building a tolerance to CBD products.

Unsure? Ask Your Doctor

Though we love consuming CBD, we’re not medical professionals by any means. If you’re unsure if CBD is right for you, reach out to your doctor or another licensed healthcare professional for advice. Your doctor will give you a professional medical opinion and help you better determine whether CBD is right for you.

CBD Dosage – Is It The Same With All Products?

Every CBD product offers a different unique experience — even if you take the same dose for your body weight, your experience will vary based on the concentration level you choose, how you consume your CBD, and how long the effects last. Generally speaking, the longer it takes for your CBD to kick in, the longer you’ll feel its effects. Let’s read more about the most common ways to consume CBD!

Sublingual Application

Sublingual application (applying CBD oil tincture directly under your tongue) is awesome because your body doesn’t have to work to digest the CBD. Instead, the CBD oil directly gets absorbed into your bloodstream through the glands under the tongue, helping you feel the effects more quickly.

The effects from sublingual application will start within 15-30 minutes and last until 4-6 hours. 

Quick note: You can consume CBD isolate the same way too.

Oral Ingestion

When you consume a CBD edible or drink, you’re likely to feel its effects for longer than any other method of consumption. This is because the edible needs to first pass through your gastrointestinal tract before your body can metabolize it or break it down.

Most edibles take between 45 minutes to an hour to onset, with effects lasting between 6-8 hours. This makes oral ingestion great for people who’d like to feel the effects of CBD for a longer period.

CBD hemp edibles also come in a wide variety — from gummies to brownies to sodas and more. You can also create your own ingestible treats at home by adding CBD oil tincture to food and drinks!


Inhalation is one of the best methods of consuming CBD if you’re someone who wants to feel its effects fast. When you inhale CBD, your body doesn’t need to digest it (similar to sublingual application). Instead, it goes straight from your lungs into your bloodstream.

When you inhale CBD, you’ll feel its effects immediately or within 30 to 90 seconds after inhalation, with effects lasting for about 3-4 hours. Because of this, it can be a lot easier to feel out your perfect dose and very easy to inhale more if needed.

Whether you’re smoking CBD flower, CBD concentrate, or hitting a CBD vape, it’s still important to pay attention to concentration levels for each product. Smokable CBD products have many different potencies, so we suggest reading all labels carefully so that you only consume your preferred dose.

Topical Use

CBD topicals are great for those experiencing external discomfort, as they will only affect you externally and where you apply them. This is because there’s no way for topicals to enter your bloodstream through contact with your skin alone.

Unlike other forms of CBD, this means that you can apply CBD topicals as liberally as much as you want or need! CBD topicals can include lotions, transdermal patches, hand sanitizers, salves, and more, so there’s a product out there for everyone.

With CBD topicals, you’ll feel effects immediately to within 15 minutes of application, with effects lasting for 2-4 hours. After effects begin to dull, you can apply more if needed.

Start Low and Gradually Increase Your Dose

We mentioned this briefly above, but the best way to learn your preferred dosage is by going with the low-and-slow method. Whether you’re trying out CBD for the first time or trying out a new method of consumption, by starting small, you’ll be able to figure out the perfect dose for your body weight.

Even if this means cutting a standard dose in half, you’re more likely to learn what your tolerance levels are if you begin small. Think of consuming CBD the way you add salt to your food — you can always add more if the initial amount you apply isn’t enough.

Tolerance levels can also be built and reduced over time! If you had a high tolerance to CBD five years ago but haven’t consumed it since then, your tolerance levels have likely decreased. You might not be able to comfortably consume the same amount of CBD as you used to and may want to start smaller again.

How To Calculate My Correct CBD Dosage

To calculate your correct CBD dosage, start first by carefully reading the label of whichever product you intend to consume. Once you’ve read the label, determine how much CBD you’d like to consume. Do you prefer a lower dose, an average or regular dose, or a higher dose? Be sure to factor in concentration levels, too; if you want a lower dose but have a high concentration product, you may only want to consume a very little bit.

Once you’ve decided how much CBD you’d like to consume, then you can use the handy General Guidelines section at the very top of this page! Remember that your correct dose is specially tailored to you and your body weight, so calculate with that in mind.

CBD Products – Which Type Is For You?

Since there are so many different ways to consume CBD, there’s a product out there for everyone! We’ve listed some of our favorite products below so you can handpick the one that suits your personality the most.

Premium CBD Flower 

CBD flower is great for those who enjoy smoking or those looking to feel the effects of CBD fast. Similar to *other* kinds of hemp flower, CBD flower is versatile and can be consumed in any of your favorite ways. Grind up your preferred dose, and inhale CBD flower through:

  • Dry herb vaporizers
  • Joints
  • Pipes
  • Bubblers
  • Bongs

Like your classic flower, CBD hemp flower also comes in a wide range of flavors and aromas. Exhale Wellness carries fan favorites and new strains alike — from Gorilla Glue to Cherry Wine, we’ve got you covered no matter what your taste buds prefer.

CBD Pre Rolls

For those who love flower but don’t love putting in the work, check out CBD pre-rolls! As their name suggests, pre-rolls are pre-dosed and packed ahead of time, so you don’t have to worry about calculating your perfect dose or packing your joint.

Exhale Wellness carries pre-rolls in all the flower flavors you already know and love, and each pack comes with 5 x 1g joints. Keep one at home to share with your best buds, or stash one in your bag for some on-the-move fun!

Full Spectrum CBD Gummies (Vegan)

If you were a big fan of gummy vitamins when you were a kid, then we have the best news for you! Full-spectrum CBD gummies are tasty morsels that are pre-dosed and easy to consume. They’re discrete, so you can still bring them with you wherever you go and are delightfully fruity — if CBD isn’t a flavor you enjoy much on its own, these may be the right product for you.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil

So, you’re a big fan of CBD, but you’re not sure which products will suit you the best! We got you. Exhale’s Full Spectrum CBD Oil tincture is one of the most versatile CBD products out there! You can consume it in multiple ways (sublingually and orally), and it’s incredibly easy to dose. Apply your preferred dose underneath your tongue for rapid, powerful results, or add a few drops to your favorite food or beverage to enjoy a longer, slower ride.

CBD Legalities

Did you know that CBD is completely federally legal? According to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD is legal only if it contains 0.3% THC or less. Even though it is federally legal and rapidly gaining mainstream popularity, restrictions still vary by state. Because of this, we recommend checking out different state restrictions before shopping or traveling with any CBD products.

Lucky for those of us who do live in more restrictive states, lots of research and clinical studies are still being done to determine how else it can help improve and sustain overall wellness. We’re excited to see what scientific discoveries still lie ahead for CBD and are proud to be able to share its benefits with so many of you — and hopefully, even more of you in the years to come!

What To Look For In Quality CBD Products

There are many ways to determine whether a CBD product is of high quality or if you should steer clear of it. Some of the best indicators of a high-quality product are its ingredients, brand reviews, and whether or not it’s American Made. Let’s break down these factors together, so you can enjoy the best CBD out there!


Like most other products, quality ingredients are a sure sign that a CBD product is of good quality. At Exhale Wellness, all of our products (whether it be CBD, Delta 8 THC, Delta 9 THC, or HHC) are:

  • All vegan and organic
  • Free of artificial coloring and flavoring
  • Dairy-free and gluten-free
  • Non-GMO

Not only that, but we only get our hemp from the best hemp farms in the country because we know that the highest quality CBD starts at the seed. Now, if it’s possible to make products this good, why would any brand choose to do otherwise?

Brand Reviews

Brand reviews can be very important when determining whether a product is worth trying or not. Before purchasing any CBD product, we recommend diving into what other customers have had to say about it.

Great reviews can help you learn things like what others liked and disliked about the product, how they consumed it, their ideal starting dose for their body weight, whether they’d buy again, and more!

USA-Grown vs. Imported Hemp

The USA has strict regulations when it comes to growing hemp. These restrictions help keep only the highest-quality CBD on the shelves and ensure that you’re purchasing a product that provides only the benefits that it’s intended to.

When purchasing CBD from foreign countries, it’s much more difficult to control the quality of the hemp plant. Some products may even contain over the legal limit of 0.3% THC. Not only that, but it can also be harder to determine whether your product contains quality ingredients because you likely won’t be able to trace back which farms the hemp plants grew on. We always recommend purchasing USA-sourced CBD products to stay on the safe side.

Satisfaction Guaranteed/Refund Policy

At Exhale Wellness, we think you should take your time deciding whether you like a product and if it’s for you. That’s why we offer a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee. We want you to be happy with what you consume and how it makes you feel, so if you aren’t in love with a product after 30 days, we’ll offer you a full refund.

Final Thoughts – CBD Dosage Chart

All in all, CBD dosage is very different for each individual — it varies by product and can differ slightly each time you consume CBD. By using a CBD dosage calculator and consuming smaller amounts of CBD to start, you’ll be able to better gauge your perfect dose every time.
