Important Dosage Considerations

Cannabidiol (more commonly known as CBD) is one of 104 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, found in the hemp plant.

CBD a naturally occurring compound in hemp, is more prominent to the marijuana counter-part THC.

THC the compound known to give psychoactive effects, commonly known for the recreational “high”.

Recent Studies and further education for the use of CBD is proving to support a variety of health boosting properties and is very quickly becoming an essential natural Health and Wellness product.

 Determining the best CBD dosage generally depends on the following factors.


Concentration, or strength, refers to the total amount of CBD in a given product.

Concentration is measured in milligrams (mg).

This is different from dosage, which indicates the amount of CBD per serving. Eg, a 10ml bottle of CBD tincture has a concentration of 1000mg of tincture.

There are roughly 200 drops per 10ml bottle therefore each drop is approximately 5 mg of CBD;

Doses can be variable for different users.

Desired Effects

For many, the optimal dose comes down to the level of pain or discomfort they are experiencing.

Someone with chronic pain or

severe anxiety may need a higher dose to alleviate their symptoms

whereas a person with a milder condition may prefer a lower dose with less pronounced



CBD consumers may develop a tolerance over time, which can result in reduced effects from the same dosage.

Higher subsequent

doses may be needed to achieve

the desired results.

Measuring Dosages For Different CBD Products

Oils and tinctures

These forms of concentrated CBD oil are typically mixed in with food or applied sublingually (beneath the tongue).

Oils and tinctures typically come in 15-mL or 30mL bottles. These products vary significantly in terms of concentration, ranging anywhere from 100 mg to 5000 mg.

The key to understanding tincture dosage is serving size, which is usually 1 mL per serving.

A 5000mg-strength tincture in a 30-mL bottle features 30 1-mL servings of roughly 166.7mg of CBD.

A 100 mg-strength tincture in the same bottle contains 30 servings of roughly 3.3mg of CBD.

These two servings will yield very different effects. For this reason, we urge first-time CBD tincture consumer’s to start with lower concentrations and gradually ramp up their dosage.

It’s important to note that tinctures do not take effect as quickly as other CBD products (namely vape oils) and consumers may not experience the sensations right away; however, the effects can last for up to three or four hours.

Those who take the tincture sublingually should hold the 1-ml serving under their tongue for approximately 60 seconds for best results.

Vape oil

Vape oils are similar to tinctures.

Most vape oils come in 10-mL bottles, with 1-mL to 1.5-mL per serving.

Concentrations for vape oils typically range from 100 mg to 1500 mg, meaning that the serving size for most oils will range from 6.6mg to 50 mg.

Many vape pens are designed to accommodate cartridges that house the vape oil; cartridges vary in terms of capacity but 1.5 mL is a common size.


Calculating dosage is fairly easy with these products because each edible represents one serving size and the dosage is always listed in the ingredients.

Most gummies have concentrations ranging from 5 mg to 100 mg.

For higher-dosage edibles, consumers who prefer moderate doses find that breaking the edible apart yields the best results.


Calculating dosage with topical is tricky because the ‘serving’ size depends entirely on how much (or how little) is applied to the skin.

Most CBD topical sold today range in concentration from 250 mg to 1500 mg.

People with severe pain or discomfort typically find that high-concentration topical work best.
