Potency of the CBD oil you’re using is a huge factor in determining how much oil you should be taking. To determine the potency of the CBD oil you have, you need to take into account the bottle size in mL (ex. 30 ml), and the amount of CBD listed on the bottle (ex. 600 mg). The CBD in mg divided by the size of the bottle will give you your CBD potency in mg/ml. (Ex. 600 mg ÷ 30 ml = 20mg/ml). When you’ve worked out how potent the oil is, you can determine how much you need to get a specific dose. For example, if you want a dose of 20 mg CBD, take 1 ml of oil. If you want 10 mg, take half a dropper, and so on.
While CBD is generally safe, there is a reason we’re telling you to start with a low dosage if you’ve never tried it before. Taking too much CBD for your body can result in five typical side effects: low blood pressure, dry mouth, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and tiredness. While these effects are short-term and only last while the CBD is in your system, it’s best to avoid them by taking it easy, and taking the time to work up to the dosage that’s right for you.
The best way to carefully discover the right dosage for you, is to start low, and increase until you feel the effects you’re looking to feel. Start with a very low dose, like 2 mg, and then increase it by 2-5 mg per dose until you feel the desired effects.
