What strength CBD should I use?
“What strength of CBD oil should I use?” is a very important question that depends on many factors. Read on to learn more about it.
There are many factors that affect which strength CBD oil is right for you, including weight and individual body chemistry. Some people have a endocannabinoid system that is more active than others, so they may not need as high a dose. Even if you have a friend with the same condition, age, and weight, that does not mean you both need the same dose.
We recommend first-time users of CBD to start with a low dose (500 mg) and take three drops twice a day and slowly increase the dose every week by a drop. Also an options are the CBD capsules. It is important to remember that CBD oil takes about 4-8 weeks to take effect. Therefore, it is important that you do not rush to take a higher dose before the body has reacted to the CBD.
If after 4-5 weeks you find that you need to take more doses to achieve the desired effect, you can switch to a higher-dose product.
The advantage of starting with the low percentage oil is that you can estimate how much CBD oil you need to benefit from the product. If you start with a high-dose oil, you will not know how much you need to get the effect you want, and you could end up taking a higher dose than you need – and thus spending more than you need.
How can I tell the strength of CBD oil?
So now we know that we should 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 the strength of a CBD oil, we mean how much cannabidiol (CBD) is contained per volume of the bottle’s contents. For example, if you compare a 10 ml bottle and a 20 ml bottle, both described as containing 1000 mg of CBD, they are not the same strength.
In this case, both bottles contain the same total amount of cannabinoids (1000 mg), but the 20 ml bottle (5%) is twice as diluted, meaning you need to use twice as many drops as the 10 ml bottle (10%) to get the same amount of CBD into your body.

Our premium CBD oils are packaged in 10ml bottles and come in a range of strengths from 300mg to 6000mg of CBD per 10ml bottle. This range of strengths allows you to tailor your intake to your body’s needs.
CBD results can take time?
CBD tends to accumulate in your body over time. Some people report dramatic results the first time they take it, while others find that the response is gradual after a few weeks of daily use. So when considering whether and how to increase strength, it’s important to go slowly.

If you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications, always talk to your doctor before using CBD and check if there are any interactions with your medications. If you are taking an over-the-counter medication, ask your pharmacist for advice.
