CBD Dosage: How Much Should I Take?

CBD Dosage: How Much Should I Take? | Hempfield Botanicals

One of the top questions that we’re asked on a regular basis is, “How much CBD should I take?” It’s a great question that deserves it’s very own blog post (and cheat sheet!).

Consider this. Have you ever undergone surgery where general anesthesia was administered? If so, you most likely remember the anesthesiologist repeatedly verifying your weight. That’s  because your dose of anesthesia is determined by your body mass. 

Also, think about medication dosing, and how there are typically different directions for children under the age of 12 years. A standard dose of acetaminophen (aka Tylenol) is 10-15 mg per kg of the child’s weight, with a dose every 4-6 hours (maximum daily dose is 75 mg/kg). For an adult, the maximum daily dose of acetaminophen is 4 g (4000 mg), with a recommended dosage of 352-650 mg every 4-6 hours. That’s a big difference between doses, because there’s a big difference between the weight of a child and an adult.

The same standards should be applied when determining your dose of CBD. Not everyone should take the same generic dose of CBD because, after all, individual bodies react and weigh differently. Why take more than you need and waste your money? Or, if you aren’t taking enough, you may not get the benefits that you expect and give up too soon.

To help make CBD dosing easier, check out the cheat sheet we created below to determine your starting, medium, and high dose, all based on body weight. Remember: start low and slow, and work your way up as needed. More is not always better!

  1. I find that it’s easier to think of the measurement as a quarter of a dropper, half dropper etc. my rough calculation is a half a dropper is about 40 mg? ? It is Easier for me to educate my clients in that measurement as opposed to per drop…Which is a little tedious when you are administering under the tongue. Thanks For your fabulous product, Susanne Spurlock, MSW, wellness counselor👍💁‍♀️Ps.
    I would like to post your website with product information on my website. Can we work together in this regard? I will be calling soon to place another order for oral oils.

    1. Hello Susanne! Thanks for reaching out. It really depends on the concentration. For the 300 mg bottle each individual drop contains 0.5 mg of CBD so a full ml (approximately 20 drops) would be approximately 10 mg. For the 600 mg bottle each individual drop contains 1 mg of CBD so a full ml (approximately 20 drops) would be approximately 20 mg. For the 1200 mg bottle each individual drop contains 2 mg of CBD so a full ml (approximately 20 drops) would be approximately 40 mg. We hope this info helps!

      As a side note, 1 fluid ounce bottle contains 30 milliliters (approximately 20 drops per ml) so a 30 ml bottle contains approximately 600 drops (30 ml x 20 drops per ml = 600 drops). So to figure out milligrams per drop, take the CBD concentration divided 600 drops per the 30 ml bottle and you’ll get the milligrams per drop.
