Note: CBD is only legal in Australia via a prescription from a healthcare professional. The team at honahlee are not doctors and are not recommending that anyone use CBD or any form of cannabis without approval and prescription from your doctor.
Unlike other medication, there are no standardised dosages for medicinal cannabis. Because of this, the approach tends to be a ‘low and slow’ methodology when administering. Your doctor will be able to help guide you on the correct starting dosage and will work with you to arrive at the dosage you’ll need to take consistently.
Remember that like THC, CBD will have a different effect on each individual. Some people are very sensitive to these chemicals while others will need more to get the same effect. Some people may have stronger side effects and some may have very few. It’s important to follow the recommended doses and guidelines as laid out by your healthcare professional so that you’re able to find the correct dosage to help with your condition or symptoms.
Here are a couple of resources that you might find helpful on your quest for the correct CBD dosage:
