How much medicinal cannabis should you take?

Unfortunately, there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer. Your dosage will depend on several factors, including your endocannabinoid system, the reason you are taking medicinal cannabis, and the way you are taking it (smoking, ingesting, or a topical solution).

Deciding your cannabis dosage with your doctor

Before taking any type of cannabis or CBD product, you should first consult with a doctor that is familiar with medicinal cannabis treatment options. If your doctor is not familiar with medicinal cannabis, the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and the Association of Cannabis Specialists both offer online directories of practitioners.
