UK Cuts Recommended CBD Dose: Should US Follow Suit?

CBD can be found in everything from drinks, edibles, food, candy, and gummies to tinctures, salves, and vapes. You can even buy CBD products for your pets!

Those who use CBD believe these products help with a variety of problems, such as:

  • easing pain
  • improving sleep
  • reducing anxiety
  • fighting cancer or reducing the side effects of cancer treatments

In the United States, there are very few regulations regarding CBD products, recommended doses, or quality standards. Similarly, the United Kingdom doesn’t have many regulations concerning CBD. However, the UK has slashed its recommended maximum dose from 70mg to 10mg CBD.

The United States notoriously has fewer food, cleaner, and cosmetic safety regulations than European Union countries. Over 80 countries have stricter cosmetic regulations than the US. Americans are slowly waking up to the fact that we are significantly unhealthier than other countries, and it would be wise to have stricter food and drug requirements.

This begs the question: if a European country is lowering the recommended dose for CBD, should the US, as well?

Current US CBD dosing recommendations include:

  • 40 mg for anxiety
  • 20 mg for pain
  • 175 mg for sleep quality

These dosages are significantly higher than the UK’s current recommendations. Even if US recommendations remain the same, it’s worth a personal consideration to err on the side of caution. When it comes to CBD, it is likely that less is better.
