Hello and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I would first like to clarify if you are giving your daughter CBD (cannabidiol) drops? As you typed BCD oil, I would like to first confirm what we are speaking about and then move forward with the information you need. If I am wrong, then please do write to me about what dosage you would need to learn about.

I look forward to hearing from you in order to help you further.

Yes CBD oil and 2 drops 2 times per day I do believe the charlottes web oil is slightly different it may also contain CBD oil but it has some different properties

Brief Answer:
Try 5 drops 2 times a day, and if ineffective then 10 drops 2 times a day

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again.

Thank you for that information.

2 drops 2 times a day is indeed a mild and minimal dosage, but as your daughter is 18 years old she can be considered an adult. The usual adult dosage is 15 drops to be taken 2 times a day, under the tongue and to hold under the tongue for about a minute.

But as her dosage is quite a small one right now, so I would advise first raising it to about 5 drops 2 times a day, and if that does not help then go to 10 drops 2 times a day. But I feel it would be best to avoid reaching a 15 drops 2 times a day dosage, until we really need it. You can continue with the CBD oil for now, let us see how it helps and if it is too strong or ineffective then we can consider charlottes web oil.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
