You may need a little patience to determine the optimal daily dosage to suit your needs. Your body is unique, a dosage that works well for someone else may be too much or too little for you. While there is no danger in taking more CBD than you need, it has been found that more CBD does not necessarily improve your results as well as increases your costs.
When you select a capsule or softgel, your dosage is premeasured. Taken once a day, you would be taking a dose of 25 or 30 mg a day. You can gauge the dosage in a 200 mg vape cartridge at 2 mg per puff. When selecting a full-spectrum CBD tincture, your dosage will be determined by the amount of CBD in the bottle.
A bottle of CBD oil typically contains 15 – 30 milliliters of CBD and is measured with a dropper. A dropper typically holds a milliliter (ml). You will need to take fewer milliliters or drops of a higher milligram (mg) product. For example:
- 250 mg bottle = 16.6 mg per ml = 0.8 mg per drop
- 500 mg bottle = 33.3 mg per ml = 1.5 mg per drop
- 1000 mg bottle = 66.6 mg per ml = 3.0 mg per drop
- 2500 mg bottle = 83.3 mg per ml = 3.8 mg per drop
- 5000 mg bottle = 166.6 mg per ml = 7.6 mg per drop
While CBD manufacturers typically do not suggest dosage information, some sources suggest starting at a low dose, (25-30mg) per day, while assessing your results. For example, if you decide to start somewhere in the middle of the recommendations and purchase a 250 mg bottle of CBD, you would need to take more than 1.5 droppers full to get 25 mg. If you purchase a 1000 mg bottle, you would need to take less than half a dropper to get the same amount of CBD per dose.
When trying to determine your ideal dosage for your purposes, if you do not experience the results you are looking for after 3-4 hours; you can safely increase the amount of CBD taken with your next dose. Eventually, you will find the best dose of CBD for your needs.
