Can You Take Too Much CBD?

Everyone is different and will respond to hemp extracts in unique ways. But can you take too much CBD?


Hi, I'm Heidi Granzini, Customer Care Specialist here at HempLucid Corporate Headquarters.

Today we're talking about CBD serving size and whether or not it's possible to take too much.

How Much CBD Should I Take?

People often request serving recommendations, and while we're unable to offer specific guidelines, we always suggest starting low and gradually increasing your serving over time until the desired effect is reached.

This process can take a little while, so be patient and listen to your body. 

Everyone is different and will respond to hemp extracts in unique ways. And because of this, each individual will prefer CBD in different amounts. 

But can you take too much CBD?

Start Slow & Work Your Way Up

Hemp has a marvelous safety profile and is well tolerated by most people.

There's no danger of overdosing on CBD, or any hemp compound for that matter. However, in rare cases, unfavorable effects may arise if you take more than your body needs. 

These are generally experienced in the form of mild drowsiness or slight digestive discomfort. 

If you find yourself outside of comfortable limits, simply taper back down. 

We believe hemp-derived extracts can help achieve a sense of balance, and that balance is unique for everyone. Remember to start low and slowly increase your daily serving of CBD until you find a balance of your own. Whatever that may mean for you.

I'm Heidi Granzini, thank you for watching!
