CBD 101: Dosing – Drops vs Milligrams

If anyone gives you cbd Dosing advise to start with 2-3 drops or 3-5 drops per day (or 1 drop per day) and they do not work for a CBD company making a recommendation for their particular product, they do not understand CBD and you should not listen to them.


You can only dose with drops alone if you never intend to transition to another product, because 1 drop of Bluebird (regular) is 0.28 mg. 3 drops a day of Bluebird is 0.84 mg. If you want to change to Simply CBD Black, you cannot start at 3 drops because each drop of SimplyCBD Black is 5 mg and if you give 3 drops, you’re givino 15 mg and that is a huge increase over 0.84 and you will likely have a negative reaction.

Bluebird 1 drop = 0.28 mg


SimplyCBD Black 1 drop = 5 mg

To find success with CBD, it is essential to dose by milligrams so you can transition and compare two products effectively.
