Basically, there is no correct CBD dosage. 

The optimal dose for a consumer depends on CBD tolerance, and the level of the customer’s discomfort. Different products react differently. A salve is absorbed through the skin and takes a short time for the CBD is give the relief.  A tincture taken sublingually enters the bloodstream rapidly. Gummies travel through the digestive system and can take longer to take effect.


Concentration refers to the total amount of CBD in a given product. A 1000mg bottle of tincture contains 1000mg of CBD in a 30 ml. bottle, for example.

 Dosage indicates of the amount of CBD per serving. If your bottle has 30ml and contains 1000mg of CBD, then each 1-ml serving will contain 33.3mg of CBD. Often a dropper holds 1ml. A person will not get the entire 1000mg in one dropper..  



CBD oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant, meaning these products will be high in the beneficial compound CBD. However, it may be labeled several ways, which can get confusing.


If you’re searching for a product, look for the terms:​

  • Concentration: Concentration, or strength, refers to the total amount of CBD in a given product. Concentration is measured in milligrams (mg).

  • Dosage: Indicates the amount of CBD per serving. For instance, let’s say a bottle of CBD tincture has a concentration of 1500 mg and contains 30 milliliters (mL) of the tincture, with 1 mL as the standard serving size. This means each 1-mL serving will contain approximately 50 mg of CBD - that's the dosage; the consumer is not ingesting 1500 mg with each dosage.

  • Body Weight: A person’s weight often plays a role in how much – or how little – CBD affects the body. Generally speaking, heavier people need higher doses to experience the  effects of CBD; lighter people, on the other hand, may feel the same effects with a lower dose.

  • Desired effects: For many, the optimal dose comes down to the level of discomfort they are experiencing. Someone with chronic discomfort  may need a higher dose to alleviate their symptoms, whereas a person with a milder condition may prefer a lower dose.
