What strength CBD oil should I use?

Thursday August 12, 2021

The question of ‘what strength CBD oil should I use’ is a crucial one and one which depends on may factors. Read on to find out more.

There are many things that affect which CBD oil strength is right for you, including weight and individual body chemistry. Some people have a more active endocannabinoid system than others, meaning they will not need such a high dose. Even if you have a friend with the same condition and same age and weight that doesn’t mean you both need the same dose.

We recommend first-time CBD users start with a low dose (250mg), taking half a pipette or three sprays of oil twice a day. You can slowly increase the dose if needed. It’s important to remember that CBD oil can take around 6-8 weeks to take effect and so it’s important to not rush into a higher dose before you’ve allowed the body to respond to the CBD.

If you find that after 6-8 weeks you need to take more doses in order to have the desired effect you can switch to a higher dose product.

An advantage of starting with the lowest strength oil is that you can gauge how much CBD oil it takes for you to benefit from the product. If start on a high-strength you won’t know how much it took to provide the desired effect and you could end up taking a higher dose than you need – and therefore spending  more than you need.

How do I know the strength of a CBD Oil?
So, now we know to start with a low strength oil, next we need to know how to determine the strength of the CBD oils we are comparing.

When we talk about strength of a CBD oil we mean how much Cannabidiol is included per volume of the contents of the bottle. For example, if you are comparing a 10ml and a 20ml bottle both described as 250mg of CBD, they are not the same strength.

In the above case both bottles contain the same overall amount of cannabinoids (250mg), but the 20ml is twice as diluted meaning you will need to use twice as many drops than the 10ml bottle to get the same amount of CBD into your system.

If the 10ml bottle above is priced £20 and the 20ml bottle is priced £2o the 20ml bottle is actually more expensive. The 10ml bottle may look more expensive to buy, but as the potency is higher, you have more CBD per drop, so you can use fewer drops of CBD oil for the same effect.

CBD Results Can Take Time
