How To Choose Your CBD Oil Concentration
With so many new CBD oil products in the market, we understand it may be confusing to determine which CBD oil strength may be right for you and for your needs. CBD oil comes in different potencies and you may need a different concentration depending on what you’re looking for. Choosing a CBD Oil strength can seem overwhelming, so we have put together a general guide to help with choosing the right CBD Oil potency for your case. However, it’s important to note that CBD products are not yet FDA-approved and you should seek medical advice from your healthcare physician when making a decision about CBD oil therapy and dosage for your particular use.
CBD Oil Strengths & Concentrations
Most CBD Oil manufacturers supply their products in at least two different concentrations, ranging from 100 mg to over 5,000 mg for a standard 30ml bottle. Most often, new CBD oil users opt in for a low-concentration tincture to start with, considering the cost compared to higher-strength tinctures. As our bodies naturally start to develop tolerance to CBD, then higher concentrations can be used to maintain the desired effect. Our Epic CBD Oil Tinctures come in two strengths, 500MG and 1000MG and are both infused in MCT (refined coconut oil) for fast-acting relief and for easier dosing. Our strongest and highest concentration of CBD is provided by California CBD Company and features 5000MG infused in the same amount of MCT oil as the previous two Epic CBD Oil tinctures. The increased 10x concentration allows you to utilize much less and provides 200MG per dropper compared to 40MG of CBD per dropped provided by our 1000MG tincture, and 20MG of CBD per dropper of our 500MG tincture.
CBD Oil Dosage by Strength
If you’re new to CBD, it’s recommended that you start with the lowest 500MG concentration and the initial recommended dosage indicated in the bottle. For reference, doses typically range anywhere from 5 MG to over 100 MG in a day. When trying CBD for the first time, it’s important to take note of the effect CBD has on your body and how you react to the minimum strength dose. Initially, you’re looking to determine how much CBD is required for your body to feel the effects desired. Starting with a lower concentration tincture allows you to gauge what dose provides the relief you’re seeking, rather than utilizing higher strength oil straight away when it may not be necessary for your situation. Everyone is different and the effect CBD will have on your body will vary from person to person considering many factors including body weight and body chemistry. Therefore, gauging the effect of CBD on yourself is crucial before increasing the dose or opting for a higher-strength tincture. Doing so will reduce the likelihood of developing a tolerance for the active compound and will save you money by only taking the amount you need. Moreover, some individuals have a more active endocannabinoid system than others, so they will naturally not require as high of strength to achieve the same results.
Lower Strength CBD Oil (100MG to 500MG)
CBD Oil tinctures in lower strengths can be beneficial as a single-dose daily supplement aimed to help boost general health. This is a good place to start when you’re new to CBD Oil.
Mid-Strength CBD Oil (500MG to 1000MG)
CBD Oils in mid-level concentrations can be helpful for people who find they’re having to take multiple doses of a lower potency CBD oil. A single dose remains the same but contains more CBD per serving than lower potency oils.
Higher Strength CBD Oil (1000MG or higher)
CBD tinctures in higher concentration ranges are generally used for those who require a stronger effect or those who have a higher tolerance. Please keep in mind that CBD oils of 1000MG or higher are not recommended for first-time users. As previously mentioned, it is recommended to start with a lower concentration to gauge the right dose for your body.
