Athletes have to try taking smaller doses, to begin with, and then observe how the body is responding to it. if the CBD health benefits are starting to show, then it means you can slowly increase the dosage or stick to it. if you feel the benefits are not showing, then you can increase by 2mg every day, until you start to see something.
