Tips for choosing the correct CBD gummies dosage

What are CBD gummies?

CBD gummies are flavored supplementsthat contain CBD (cannabidiol). CBD is a naturally-occurring non-psychoactive compound taken from the hemp plant that offers many physical and mental health benefits.

CBD works in harmony with the body’s endocannabinoid system – a complex cell signaling network that regulates many of our most critical bodily functions. As such, it can have a positive impact on energy and focus, sleep, mood, digestion, heart health, immune function, and much more.

Taking CBD in gummy form is so popular because as well as being tasty, gummies are incredibly easy to dose, transport, and take on the move.

Factors that may affect CBD dosage

There are no official guidelines regarding how much CBD you should take, so it’s often a case of experimenting until you find what works for you. 

The dose you need depends on several factors, such as your weight, your lifestyle, the effects you’re looking for, and the potency of the product itself. However, it’s important to understand some of the more common myths before you begin.

Myth: your body weight doesn’t matter

The truth is, your body weight will impact how much CBD you need to consume, just as it impacts how much alcohol you can drink, or how much of certain medications you can take. In reality, a heavier person might need a higher amount of CBD to experience the same effects as a lighter person.

To find your ideal CBD gummy dosage, balance your weight against the impacts you’d like to feel. An overarching guideline as reported in articles such as ‘Optimal CBD Dosing: Everything You Need to Know  is to take 1–6 mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight . That means a 160-pound person would take 16–96 mg daily, depending on the anticipated effects and their pre-existing tolerance levels.

Always begin at the lower end of the scale, then build the dosage up slowly until you’re happy with the results.

Myth: all CBD products are the same

This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. As well as varying in taste and color, GBD gummies created by different brands can vary hugely in potency and quality.

We recently performed a study with Coral Reef Labs, which revealed that some well-known CBD gummies contain as little as 60% of the CBD claimed on the label. Which means you’re not taking as much as you intended, and the results may be disappointing.

NextEvo CBD Gummies, however,  contain between 102–115% of the CBD indicated on the label, allowing you to take an accurate dose and feel the full benefits.

As well as quality and potency, different gummies may use different formulations of CBD, which impacts how they work. NextEvo Gummies, for example, use SmartSorb™ technology, to achieve a faster, higher, and longer-lasting absorption rate compared with other premium brands. 

You should also consider that three types of CBD are used in gummies, which are explained further in this CBD article by Forbes Health. Full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate – may have different impacts, and the type you choose might depend on your specific needs and preferences. For example, some people prefer full-spectrum CBD as they believe the different compounds act together to create an entourage effect. So it always pays to do your research and experiment to discover what works.

Myth: you use CBD the same way no matter what

This simply isn’t true. The amount of CBD you need to take – and how you take it – depends on both the impacts you’d like to achieve, and the benefits you are looking for.

For example, the number of CBD gummies you consume for minor exercise related pain might differ from the amount you need to supportyour mood and focus. Or, if you’re taking CBD gummies to regulate your sleep or recover from exercise, you will likely want to take them at different and specific times of the day.

In addition, your health and wellbeing goals will also vary over time, so you may need to adjust when and how many CBD gummies you take to suit your changing requirements.

It’s also important to remember that your tolerance levels, weight, lifestyle, and general disposition can also fluctuate, which all impact how much CBD is effective.

How many CBD gummies should I eat?

Everybody reacts differently to CBD gummies, so make a judgment call based on the factors we’ve outlined above, such as your weight and the effects you’re looking for. Then start with a low dose and build the levels gradually until you’re happy with the outcome.

CBD gummies are available in various doses-per-gummy, so always check the label carefully and follow the guidelines. If you have any concerns, contact a health professional for advice.

NextEvo's recommended guidelines

NextEvo Gummies are clinically proven to absorb 4x better than regular CBD oil-based products, so fewer deliver more benefits.

This is due to our revolutionary SmartSorb™ technology which turns our premium CBD into a water-soluble emulsion, and gives our gummies a greater bioavailability. This means a higher concentration of CBD is delivered into your system – intensifying the impact and delivering the maximum impact. And it acts in as little as 10 minutes, with less lasting for longer. 

Taking this into account, we recommend the following dosages.


NextEvo Stress CBD Complex Gummies and NextEvo Revive CBD Complex Gummies should be taken with meals to provide the best possible absorption. The regular dosage is two gummies per day, which is equivalent to 15mg. Although if you’re new to CBD, you can start with one and increase the amount if you feel you need to.

As with any CBD product, it can take three to four weeks to achieve the desired results, so be patient if you don’t feel the benefits you were expecting straight away.


NextEvo Sleep Support CBD Complex should be taken 30–60 minutes before bed to achieve the optimum results.

The label suggests taking one gummy, which is equivalent to 10mg of our CBD, which of course has the added benefits of SmartSorb™ technology.

Are CBD gummies safe?

If you’re new to CBD, it’s perfectly normal to question whether CGD gummies are safe. And the answer is yes, provided you purchase them from a reputable source.

For peace of mind, check the brand’s third-party lab tests to ensure their product has the listed amount of cannabinoids, maintains THC at undetectable levels , and is free from potential contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents, which can all have adverse effects.

Like any other supplement, CBD gummies occasionally have side effects, such as light-headedness, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, headaches and drowsiness – especially if too much is taken. Which is why it’s so important to experiment with the dosage, starting with a lower amount and building up to your optimum levels.

Tips for choosing the correct CBD gummies dosage

  • Although CBD gummies come in a pre-measured dose, you can cut them in half or quarters to achieve your preferred dosage.
  • If you have a health condition, speak to a healthcare professional before you begin taking CBD gummies. This is especially important if you're taking medication which the CBD might interact with.
  • If you’re unsure whether CBD gummies are for you, or which CBD gummies to choose, experiment with one of our NexEvo CBD Bundles.
