CBD Dosage

We understand the easily confusing contents that can set some first-time buyers onto the wrong path regarding CBD dosage.

What are the CBD dosage recommendations?

CBD effects everyone differently – both immediately and over time. The product and dosage that works best depends on the individual.

Legally, we are unable to make dosage recommendations, so we suggest doing some further research. However, many people who are new to CBD start with a lower amount and gradually work their way up to the amount that’s right for them.

We do recommend that you try CBD for at least 14 days at a time. This will allow you to understand the longer-term effects. There’s something out there for everyone, so don’t hesitate to try out different types and amounts.

Before continuing its important to understand what MG and ML stand for and how and when they are used.

What are MG and ML?

MG is short for Milligrams. A milligram is a measurement of weight for an active ingredient. CBD is measured in total weight within the container not per ml.

ML is short for Milliliter. A milliliter is used to describe the volume of fluid, in this case the total liquid within the container – the size of the bottle or jar.

What is the size of the container?

The size of the container makes a big difference to the strength (concentration) of CBD as the CBD rating will be split by the amount of overall fluid within the container.

All CBD related products from any CBD seller SHOULD HAVE a CBD rating of which is described in mg, for example, 200mg CBD. The higher the CBD rating the higher the price of the product despite its container, bottle or tub size.

However, the higher the CBD rating in MG does not necessarily mean it’s stronger.

In the example above, a handful of first time buyers may think that a 30ml 200mg bottle is stronger in CBD or contains overall more CBD than the 10ml 200mg bottle, this is a mistake that is often made.

Both bottles contain a total of 200mg CBD each, meaning that the smaller 10ml bottle is actually 3 times stronger because the 200mg of CBD is split between 10ml of liquid rather than 300ml of liquid. The CBD Strength (concentration) is shared with more liquid in the 30ml bottle making it a weaker strength per ml.

CBD sellers rate the total contents of CBD in the product by MG, not per ML. There is a very good reason for this despite its confusion. It is designed to offer a fair competitive pricing structure that is universally understood.

CBD sellers however, SHOULD also state not only the total CBD within the product, but also the amount of CBD per ml (or per gram if its a solid, non liquid form).  At RESTART CBD we add this information clearly on the product’s label.

With our products you do not need to do these mathematical equations, as we do it for you on our product’s description. However, if you did find yourself in a situation were you need to confirm the actual CBD strength rather than the weight of CBD, then you can perform a simple mathematical equation:

Divide the CBD rating weight (example 200mg (200)) by the size of the container (example 10ml bottle (10)), the answer is the CBD concentration strength per ML (20mg CBD per ml).

For general reference, a single drop equates to roughly 0.05 mL. So if we use a 10 mL, 200 mg bottle of CBD as an example, 20 drops of oil would give you a 10 mg dose of CBD (20 drops = 1 mL = 10 mg).

Finding the right CBD dosage:

CBD oil can be experimented with to find the right CBD dosage for you. To get started, many people find it helpful starting at a low dose for at least one to two weeks before increasing. The goal is to find your sweet spot at the lowest amount of CBD possible.
We recommend that you try different strengths in the beginning to see what works for you.  Start low and increase as needed.  Many people take CBD 3-4 times a day for 6-8 weeks, then once the CBD is built up in their system, they can take it less frequently, such as 1-2 times a day thereafter.

Four tips before you begin:

  1. If you are new to CBD, it’s recommended you to start with the lower dosages and gradually work your way up to the dose that works for you.
  2. Larger individuals may prefer a higher dose of CBD than smaller people.
  3. If you have a medical condition, always consult with a health care professional before consuming CBD.
  4. When you use CBD, you might need to use it during a longer period of time for the endocannabinoid effects to occur.
