How Do You Measure The Exact Dosage Of CBD Oil?


CBD oil does not have an official serving size because the FDA has not created an official recommendation for the same. Due to this reason the consumers are blindly estimating their dosage based on uncertified recommendations from friends or from the Companies they have purchased their oils from. The right dosage of course depends on the concentration of CBD, the body mass index of the individual and severity of the condition which has to be treated.

The most common recommendation which we come across is to take one dropper of CBD per day. 1000 mg of CBD oil, 1500mg or even 2000mg in a bottle may perhaps be the right dosage but there is absolutely no way to tell if this is the appropriate amount of dosage or not. Another argument lies with the fact that no one size fits all. One has to go through some trial and error methods before coming to the conclusion of the proper dosage.

In a nutshell as there is no one universal rule for the right dosage for everyone.

So, what is the perfect recommendation of CBD dosage?

1. Dosage based on body weight

The individuals with more body mass require more CBD to experience its effects. As per some of the research, an appropriate dosage is to take 1-6 MG for every 10 pounds body weight.
For instance, 20 MG-33MG is a great starting dosage for a 200lb patient.

2. You need to start small and increase slowly

Take for example a person who weighs 150 pounds and takes 40MG of CBD two times a day. Even if he claims that it provides him multiple benefits and provided you guys are approximately of the same weight, he recommends the same dosage for yourself.

This is the best way to choose your dosage and here are the reasons why is it so-

Every individual has his own unique history for using medications, substances and any other supplement. Our body chemistry is different for everything we put in our body. This is the reason why you and your friend’s body would react differently to CBD.

The first thing to determine is the initial dosage based on your weight and how the body reacts to it. Later increase the dosage gradually while you continuously monitor the body’s reactions until you find the right dosage that suits your body.

3. Consult a physician

It is always a good option to consult a physician. This is especially true when there is an existing medical condition. The doctors can provide you with better options as to how the body will react to CBD and can provide you will all the professional dosage you require according to your condition.

How to accurately measure the CBD dosage

Knowing about the dosage of property is as important as understanding the proper measurement of it. There are many ways to consume CBD.

There is a need to administer the amount of CBD that comes in a single dropper which can be placed under your tongue. Once this is known to know, you are able to know the amount of CBD you are consuming.

The typical amount of CBD that a dropper can hold is 1ML. to find out the MGs of CBD in a dropper. Divide the total CBD contained in a bottle by the number of milliliters in the bottle. For instance if a 20ml CBD tincture has CBD oil 1000Mg, the CBD per dropper is 1000 ÷ 20 = 50MG of CBD per dropper.

Capsules are definitely the most effective way of providing a truly accurate way of dosing CBD. You are good to go with a bottle of 20MG or 25MG if you have an optimal dosage of around 16MG.

Because CBD capsules are filled with an exact amount of CBD, they provide a truly accurate way to dose CBD. If your optimal CBD dosage is 16MG-25MG, then simply buy a bottle of 20MG or 25MG capsules and you’re good to go. Plus, it doesn’t get easier than taking a capsule.

Using a CBD tincture is one of the easiest ways to consume CBD. Simply fill the dropper, administer the oil under your tongue, then hold it there for 30 to 90 seconds before swallowing.

But, how many drops of CBD oil should you take?

With some simple mathematics, we can easily figure that out.

Being that the dropper is the tool we use to administer a CBD tincture, we need to find out how much CBD is in a single dropper. Once you know this, you can gauge how much CBD you’re taking.

So how do you figure out how much CBD is in a dropper?

Typically a dropper holds 1 ML of liquid. If you know how many milliliters are in a CBD tincture, you can use this simple formula to determine how much CBD is in its dropper:

[Total CBD in Bottle] ÷ [Number of Millileters in Bottle] = MGs of CBD in a Dropper

For example, let’s say you have a 30ml CBD tincture that has 1500MG of CBD:

1500 ÷ 30 = 50MG of CBD per dropper

Now, if you’re proper dosage of CBD is 25MG, and a single dropper of that 1500MG tincture contains 50MG, you’d simply fill the dropper halfway.

Of course, this method isn’t 100% accurate, but it is more accurate than not measuring at all. Remember, start with a small dosage and gradually increase until you find your perfect dosage.

How to Measure Your CBD Vape Dosage

Vaping CBD can be done using a CBD e-liquid or CBD cartridge system. Both methods are fairly easy and offer an enjoyable experience.

When using an e-liquid to vape CBD, you’d start by estimating how much CBD is in a dropper (just like with a tincture). Once you know this, you know how much CBD you are putting into a single tank. As you vape throughout the day, keep an eye on when you need to refill your tank, and how many times you need to refill your tank.

If your proper dosage of CBD is 25MG, and you are using a 1000MG bottle of CBD e-liquid, a single tank would contain approximately 33.33MG of CBD. That being said, to properly administer your dosage, you would vape a single tank periodically throughout the day.

Again, not 100% accurate; but with regular monitoring, you will be able to quickly gauge your CBD intake.

The Truly Accurate Way to Dose CBD

Since the methods we mentioned so far have only been semi-accurate, you’re probably wondering:

“So is there a 100% accurate way to take CBD?”
There certainly is. CBD Capsules.

Because CBD capsules are filled with an exact amount of CBD, they provide a truly accurate way to dose CBD. If your optimal CBD dosage is 16MG-25MG, then simply buy a bottle of 20MG or 25MG capsules and you’re good to go. Plus, it doesn’t get easier than taking a capsule.

Other consumption methods that are just as accurate include CBD applicators, CBD edibles, CBD Gummies, and CBD beverages; although they may not be as convenient as capsules.
