CBD Tincture Dosage Calculator – Why Do I Need It?
Due to the nature of the CBD industry, lack of regulations and inconsistent labeling, it’s difficult for a customers to know concentration based on the label. Those milligrams, whether they be 250, 500, or 2000 reflect the TOTAL milligrams in the entire bottle.
To know the strength of a product, it must be converted to milligrams per milliliter (mg/ml) or milligrams per serving. This is why we developed the CBD Oil Dosage Calculator.
CBD Calculator Math
CBD oil products are typically sold in 15-30ml bottles (samples size bottles can be as small as a 5ml bottle). Each full dropper can hold up one ml of liquid. On average, 1 ml of fluid is about 20 drops. However, this can fluctuate based on dropper size. To determine the milligrams in a single dropper, or mg/ml, divide the total CBD in the bottle by the number of milliliters.
- A contains 250mg ÷ 30ml = 8.3mg per dropper (8.3 mg/ml)
- B contains 250mg ÷15ml = 16.7 mg per dropper (16.7 mg/ml)
- C contains 250mg ÷ 5ml = 50 mg per dropper – (50 mg/ml)
- A contains 500mg ÷ 30ml = 16.7mg per dropper (16.7mg/ml)
- B contains 500mg ÷ 15ml = 33.33mg per dropper (33.33 mg/ml)
- C contains 500mg ÷ 5ml = 100mg per dropper (100mg/ml)
Milligrams AND Milliliter are important
Milligrams and Milliliters are both important when calculating the concentration or strength of a CBD oil product.
Many leading CBD experts suggest starting low but never suggest what “low” is. We suggest children start at a 2 mg CBD dose, and adults start at 10-15 mg CBD dose, so that you don’t skip your beneficial dose. Typically 2mg is equivalent to one single drop (like a single rain drop). For less concentrated products, you will need more than a single drop to equal 2 mg. It is important to know the milligrams you are taking if you need to transition to a new product.
We made it simply. The CBD Tincture Calculator below, does all the math for you. Our calculator determines the milligrams (mg) per drop, and number of drops that equal the recommended starting CBD dose. No worries if you aren’t good with math. We made it easy!
Starting CBD Oil Dosage for ADHD
Each person’s Endocannabinoid System is unique. Therefore CBD dosage for ADHD recommendations is not based on weight or age and is mostly trial and error. That is why experts agree that the low and slow method is best. Based on user data, adults (looking to reduce symptoms of ADHD like anxiety) on average find a dose of less than 20 mg most beneficial. While children may need a much higher dose . This is why we suggest beginning low as a starting point, so the beneficial dose is not missed when starting too high based on an age/weight chart. Also, beneficial dose of CBD hemp oil also depends on severity of symptoms, which again makes dosages based body weight and age irrelevant.
We recommend children start at 2 milligrams of CBD sublingually, and 4-5 mg per day if ingesting CBD (gummies or adding to any food or drink) as an initial serving size, however you can always start lower.
When to Increase CBD Dosage for ADHD
CBD Tincture Calculator tips – You can increase the milligrams (mg) whenever you feel comfortable doing so, but look for these side effects from taking too much, too quick. If you experience these, back off the amount the next day.
NOTE: CBD is biphasic which means it can have opposite effects at high and low doses. It is recommended to start low, but if after 1-2 weeks and increased hyperactivity and/or aggression (more stimulated) is apparent and not reducing, then a high dose (25-50 mg) may be necessary for your individual needs. *Based on feedback in our FB group, Individuals with autism are known to need much higher doses and should start at 25mg*
- Increased hyperactivity
- Moody or irritable
- aggression or agitated
- highly emotional
