Can I Take Too Much CBD?

By now, it’s inevitable that you’ve heard about the countless benefits of CBD. And not only is CBD safe and effective, it’s also so easy to consume- which leaves some people wondering “how much is too much?”  

What happens if you accidentally take too much CBD? Can you overdose on CBD? Curious minds need to know- so we’re diving into all your important questions below. 

Can I Take Too Much CBD?

If you’re worried that you might accidentally take too much CBD, here’s the good news; it’s extremely unlikely.

Even the World Health Organization declares CBD overdoses... illogical- the reason being; CBD does not directly react with the receptors in our endocannabinoid system that are responsible for respiratory/cardiac functions.

For starters, CBD is safe and effective- especially when it’s used correctly. According to the WHO, CBD is safe and well tolerated in humans (you can even give CBD to your pets!) and is not associated with any negative health effects. 

In a recent clinical trial, the patients involved were prescribed doses up to 1,200 mg daily for several consecutive months. There were zero serious side effects observed. To put that into context, that’s more than an entire bottle of Rosebud CBD oil, or 60+ suggested servings per day! 

What are the Side Effects of Taking Too Much CBD?

While you’re not going to end up in the hospital from taking too much CBD, the side effects of taking “too much” might be a little unpleasant. 

Although there are currently no reported cases of anyone overdosing on CBD, side effects from taking too much CBD can include blurred vision and drowsiness. If you exceed 1500mg of CBD, the side effects might also include:

  • diarrhea
  • fatigue
  • changes in Appetite
  • nausea
  • anxiety
  • dry mouth

Of course, these side effects are incredibly mild- especially when you compare them to the side effects of common over-the-counter or prescription drugs. 

Rosebud CBD oil contains only two ingredients: CBD and MCT (coconut oil). This not only is healthier for you, but it also cuts down the chances of experiencing any potential side effects if you take “too much.”  

How Much CBD Should I Be Taking?

You can consume CBD a few different ways, but here at Rosebud, our favorite way to take CBD oil is dropping it straight from the bottle! Dropping CBD directly into your mouth (sublingually) is the fastest and easiest way.

If you’re overwhelmed at the thought of having to determine what your personal CBD dosage is, you’re not alone! 

To help make sense of it all, we’ve put together a CBD Dosage Guide to help you find the best treatment plan to fit your individual health goals- whether you’re buying your first bottle of CBD oil or just optimizing your current wellness routine. 


Discussing dosages with your doctor is the ideal first step to avoid taking too much CBD. 

However, if your doctor or healthcare provider doesn’t provide you with a specific dosage amount, you can experiment for yourself! 

We always recommend you start small, and slowly increase your dosage until you feel the desired effects.

What is the Best Type of CBD to Take? 

Scientists recently discovered that broad-spectrum CBD oil (from cannabis or hemp plants) are much more effective than so-called “pure” CBD isolates. 

Researchers think broad-spectrum extracts work better because they contain a variety of molecules that are similar in size and shape to CBD- that all work synergistically together.

At Rosebud, we believe our customers deserve transparency and peace of mind.
