New products are constantly being added to the CBD market. There are four major types of CBD products. Each one will have a different potency and dose per unit.
Tinctures And Oils
You can buy CBD oils in liquid or capsule forms. The extracts can be taken either as a single dose or mixed with food and drinks using the dropper. Liquid Tinctures are typically taken under the tongue.
Tinctures are usually taken in higher amounts than oils. If you take 1 milliliter of a tincture, then you will need to reduce the concentration to 0.5 milliliters. It is a good idea to start slowly with a small amount (0.25 milliliters).
Due to their ease of use and delicious flavor profiles, edible CBD products are rapidly becoming very popular. You have many options when it comes to flavor, potency, and price. You can find everything from cookies to gummies, chocolates, and even granola bars.
Topical creams and salves containing CBD can also be applied to the skin. The most popular forms of CBD are creams, lotions, and ointments. Topical CBD products can be used to treat muscle pains, joint inflammation, and nerve pain.
Topical CBD is the most difficult form of CBD to determine dosage. Potency can vary from product to product and also depends on how much you apply each time. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
How Do You Determine The Right CBD Dose For You?
There are no guidelines for CBD concentration in the rest of the products that are not FDA-regulated. This makes it a bit more difficult to determine how much CBD you should take. You need to consider your weight, the treatment you are using, and the product’s concentration. High dose CBD gummies are not healthy for mental or physical health.
How Do You Calculate CBD Dosage?
It is easy to determine how many units of CBD you have for certain forms. Capsules and gummies have a milligram count, which makes it easier to determine the dosage than oils or creams.
A dropper bottle lists the CBD content of oil or tinctures. Instead of eating a 50mg gummy, you will get 7,500mg of CBD in a 30-milliliter container. To indicate the dosage, some bottles will have serving sizes like one drop. Although this allows you to be more in control of how much you take, it is not an exact science.
A few bottles have a traditional nutrition label at the back that will show you how much each dropper contains. It’s a good idea for you to contact the company if you’re unsure. It can be hard to determine how much you are taking in because the bottles do not break down into serving sizes and only give the total amount. It can be difficult but not impossible. All it takes is a bit of math.
Imagine you have a 30-milliliter CBD oil bottle. Each drop is 0.05 milliliters.
You divide the total mg content of CBD by the volume of the bottle to determine the amount. This is how the math would look in this example:
7,500 mg divided by 30 ml = 250 ml
This product contains 250 mg of CBD per milliliter. Next, find out how much CBD each drop contains.
250 milliliters x 0.05 milliliters = 12.5 milliliters per drop.
This formula works for any CBD bottle. This calculation can be used to calculate your desired amount of CBD in each drop.
