CBD Dosage Guide

Getting the right CBD dosage is important – The FSA recommends no more than 70mg a day.

With our products, that translates into the following:

9000mg and 30ml bottle. 
150 x servings 60mg / 0.2ml
1 x serving would be 9000mg divided by 150 = 60mg per 0.2ml serving.

6000mg and 30ml bottle. 
100 x servings at 60mg / 0.3ml
1 x serving would be 6000mg divided by 100 = 60mg per 0.3ml serving

3000mg and 30ml bottle. 
60 x servings 50mg at 0.5ml
1 x serving would be 3000mg divided by 60 = 50mg per 0.5ml serving

1000mg and 10ml bottle 
20 x servings 50mg at 0.5ml 
1 x serving would be 1000mg divided by 20 = 50mg per 0.5ml serving

2000mg and 10ml bottle
40 x servings 50ml at 0.25ml
1 serving would be 2,000mg divided by 40 = 50mg per 0.25 serving

Our pipettes are graduated at 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1ml.

CBD Oil is not suitable for pregnant women, and therefore should not be taken
during pregnancy.

So those are the recommended limits, but what dosage is right for you?
We’ve written up everything you need to know to find the correct dosage of CBD for your needs.

What do I need to consider for my CBD dosage?

You may be new to the world of CBD or you may already have tried buying some oil from the internet or a mainstream UK health store but either way you may be asking:

  • What CBD product should I purchase?
  • How much of it should I take and how regularly should I take it?
  • What is the optimum amount?
  • Are there any side effects if I consume too much?

What CBD product should I purchase?

This is the most difficult area for potential CBD buyers to decide upon, especially if trying for the first time. Follow the commentary below and you will see that the answer is to start with a lower dosage (our lowest dosage bottle at 1000mg), and increase according to the desired effect.

The way you consume cannabidiol affects the dosage

You may not have considered that two different ways of consuming CBD products, such as vaping CBD vs. CBD tinctures, may hit different pathways within the body, and therefore absorb into the bloodstream in different amounts (called the bioavailability). So, the serving size for different methods of consumption may vary based upon the bioavailability of cannabidiol for that method.

The correct CBD dosage can depend on the person

In addition to all of this, it’s worth noting that one person consuming a certain amount of CBD will respond differently to another person consuming the same amount. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all dosage guide for all people and all conditions.

Why is getting the correct dosage important?

Figuring out the optimum amount of CBD to consume is of the upmost importance for the consumer, with the general advice given is to always start small and gradually increase your dose.

Effective & cost-effective amounts

This is initially important from a cost-saving perspective. If ANY benefits of CBD are felt after consuming a dosage of 20mg of CBD, but you start by consuming double that amount of CBD. You are essentially wasting 50% of your CBD product and therefore 50% of your money.

How CBD works with the body

In order to fully understand how any benefits of CBD are felt by the body and to subsequently decide what dosage is required, it helps to have an understanding of how cannabidiol interacts and affects different areas. CBD that enters the bloodstream will be transported all around the body. CBD even has the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier, meaning that once in the bloodstream it can enter the brain to elicit any effects there.

Cannabidiol & the bloodstream

Once in the bloodstream, CBD can interact with the cells of your body in many ways. More specifically CBD can interact with a network of receptors called cannabinoid receptors that sit on the surface of your cells. These receptors are present in your brain, spinal cord, on your skin and muscle cells as well as throughout your organs. They make up a whole network or system, called the endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system

The receptors of the endocannabinoid receptors have different shapes and sizes which respond to different cannabinoids from the cannabis plant in different ways. Out of these different shapes and sizes, there are two prominent types, called CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors exist primarily within the central nervous system, so within the brain and spinal cord.

CB2 receptors exist primarily outside of the central nervous system, so the organs and tissues.
