For people just getting into CBD, it’s common to wonder how many milligrams they should actually be taking. We get asked every day “how much CBD oil should I take?” but unfortunately, it’s not easy (or even possible) to provide a one-size-fits-all answer.
How much CBD you should take depends on a variety of factors including things like age, sex, and weight. In this guide, we highlight several key things to know that will help you develop an effective milligram amount of CBD that you can rely on. First, though, let’s talk about what goes into the making of a Premium Jane CBD oil.
What’s in Our CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is of course one of the many active compounds in hemp. Contrary to other cannabinoids, it does not produce intoxicating or mind-altering effects.
Most users of CBD start out with an oil form of hemp extract. Premium Jane oils are made using supercritical CO2 extraction, meaning there are no chemical solvents involved in the process. Our oils are full-spectrum, meaning they include a range of beneficial hemp phytocompounds in addition to the CBD component.
Using CBD oil couldn’t be easier. Simply place a full milliliter dropper of oil beneath your tongue, and hold it there for up to 90 seconds before swallowing. This will allow the body to absorb as much of the CBD as possible, leaving little to waste.
Determining How Much CBD to Take
There are no standard guidelines when it comes to how to dose CBD or how many milligrams to take. In general, for people that are just starting out, the smaller the milligram dose, the better.
A single serving (1mL/one full dropper) of our 300mg Premium Jane CBD oils contains roughly 10mg of CBD, or about 0.5mg per drop (there are ~20 drops of oil in 1mL). This is an excellent place to begin if you’re just starting out with CBD oil.
We recommend using a diary or journal to help keep track of things, and to record how your body responds to each dose. You should note how many milligrams of CBD you took, what time you took it, and so on. Some people consume multiple servings of CBD per day, but if your body doesn’t need it, there’s no sense in doing this.
Of course, if you start out with a small milligram amount of CBD and don’t notice any effects, you’ll want to up the mg amount you consume. But do so gradually; don’t double or triple your dose right off the bat. Instead, increase each serving size by just a few milligrams, and listen closely to how your body responds. Always speak with your doctor or medical professional for guidance if you are unsure.
How Much CBD Is in One Drop of Oil?
How much CBD you should take relies heavily on knowing how much of the compound is actually in your bottle. Premium Jane CBD oils come with an integrated dropper cap, which allows for simple and convenient measuring.
Still, you’ll need to do a little math to figure out how many milligrams of CBD are in a single drop of the bottle that you’re using.
One full milliliter (1mL) – which is one dose/serving – equates to roughly 20 drops. If you have a 30ml bottle, for example, which contains 300 mg of CBD in total, a single drop will contain about 0.5 mg of CBD.
To apply this formula to any bottle size and any milligram amount of CBD oil, simply take the number of milliliters (mL) that are in the bottle, and multiply by 20. This will give you the total number of drops in the bottle. Then, divide that number by the number of milligrams of CBD that the bottle contains.
Here are the equations:
[Total mL amount of oil in bottle] x 20 = Total # of drops in entire bottle
[Total mg amount of CBD in bottle] ÷ [Total # of drops] = Total mg of CBD in EACH DROP
*(Note the difference here between a “full dropper” and a “single drop” of oil. A “full dropper” is one full mL of oil, or about 20 drops.)
Still Wondering How Much CBD to Take? Keep a Personal Journal…
If you’re still wondering how much CBD to take, we emphasize the importance of keeping a daily personal CBD journal. If you’re just starting out with your first use of CBD, record how many milligrams you took, and at what time. Listen closely to your body, and record any effects (or lack thereof) that you may feel.
Keep logging information like this on a daily basis. Soon, you’ll arrive at a distinct milligram amount of CBD that provides you with the ultimate personal benefit. Everyone’s body chemistry is unique, which is why it’s crucial to take the necessary steps to get the most out of your Premium Jane CBD product.
It’s also worth pointing out that there are dozens of different product types to choose from. While most people start out with a CBD oil, some users find that single-use capsules are preferable. Others prefer products like CBD gummies, and still some prefer smoking with the classic, authentic style of a CBD joint.
No matter which CBD product type works best for you, keeping a daily journal of your CBD use will help to fine tune the process, and will ultimately help you get the most out of your therapeutic CBD experience.
