*Check out my YouTube video on how to take CBD Oil for beginners here.*
Maybe this is your first bottle of CBD Oil or you’ve been using it for a few months, but you aren’t certain on the best way to incorporate it into your lifestyle.
First off, yay! (Also, click here to check out our craft hemp goodness, if you haven’t yet.)
Second, by the end of this short read, you’ll know a good baseline dosage to help you incorporate Full Spectrum CBD oil into your life.
As always, we advise you speak with your healthcare provider regarding these products. The following information are our findings from being both hemp growers and processors.
Being your own advocate and educating yourself are two principals I heavily push on the cusp of this exciting Hemp Movement.
So, let’s dive in.
Getting Started – How Much to Take
15mg to 25mg of CBD once or twice a day is what we suggest our customers begin taking. Tincture is dropped sublingually (Under the tongue) and held for 45 seconds to a minute before swallowing.
During this time, while you are determining your “Sweet Spot” for CBD, I suggest taking it an hour before bed.
This allows time to feel the results of that dosage and if you are feeling the effects from that dose, you can go to bed and try a bit less the next day.
After a few days of trying 15-25mg of CBD, if there is not a noticeable difference, increase to about 25mg to 50mg of CBD.
If after a week or so if there is no difference, increase your dosage incrementally by 5-10mg per week until desired result is achieved. 50mg to 100mg of CBD is the high end of the spectrum, used for more intense symptoms (See Chart 1 below for phases).
For example, in a large case series published online on January 7th of 2019 in The Permanente Journal titled, “Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep” doctors gave patients from 25mg to 175mg of CBD daily.
This study also concluded, “CBD appears to be better tolerated than routine psychiatric medications,” and went on to say, “CBD displays promise as a tool for reducing anxiety in clinical populations…”
Amount of CBD per Product Matters!
These dosing levels are easiest to track/quantify on our Full Spectrum Tinctures.
For example, a full dropper (1ml) of our 3000mg, 30ml Full Spectrum Tincture is 100mg of CBD.
Our 1000mg, 30ml tincture has 33mg of CBD in a full dropper, and our 500mg tincture has about 16mg of CBD in a full dropper. Our 15ml bottles have a different total bottle CBD strength, but each 1ml dropper has the same amount of tincture per dropper full.
- 1ml of 3000mg Tincture = 100mg CBD
- 1ml of 1000mg Tincture = 33mg CBD
- 1ml of 500mg Tincture = 16.5mg CBD
- 1ml of 1500mg Tincture = 100mg CBD
- 1ml of 500mg Tincture = 33mg CBD
- 1ml of 250mg Tincture = 16.5mg CBD
Craft hemp flower and pre-rolls are contingent upon on the strain.
With our strain specific COAs you will find, “Cannabinoids Total” (Click here for COAs).
I will post another blog in the future on reading these third party lab tests to determine CBD dosing.
Dosing is very particular to and dependent on each person. Finding our sweet spot involves listening to our bodies, as everyone is different and faces different mental/physical challenges.
Hemp products help one’s body achieve a better state of homeostasis, so you may not need to take as much as your friend to notice a difference. The beauty behind hemp products, is that they can be incorporated in one’s life to help achieve or continue a healthy lifestyle.

I’m looking for something with Energy and to help with this pain I have chronic fatigue syndrome and hashimoto and I’m super sick of pills pills and more pills I really don’t want something to make me sleep I’m sleepy all day with nothing
Hey Shena! While I can’t prescribe, I loveee BaOx as a really awesome invigorating strain for getting things done with energized calmness. T1 or Abacus are awesome hybrid options for mellowing out during the day while maintaining a super balanced sense. Cherry Blossom is another awesome hybrid that is great for relaxing during the day. Sour Space Candy and Hawaiian Haze are strains that are available in pre-rolls and are also super invigorating!
Do all your products have THC in them? I ordered the pre rolls and not sure about during them.
Hey Cat! Thank you so much for your love and support! All of our products are full spectrum, meaning there is a trace amount of THC (Below the federally legal amount) and allll sorts of other amazing cannabinoids that are amazing for things like pain, inflammation, and anxiety! These cannabinoids include CBD, CBG, CBDA, etc. So much love!
For My First Purchase I got cbd prerolls. I got Cherry Mom For Stress and Pain. I got My order a few days ago and I Absolutely Love this Product.. Only taking 2 hits I felt stress relief. I have to take UA’s as I am on Pain Medicine and I can’t have THC . So I am happy I finally found a CBD that works but I’m afraid I would lol fail My UA.. Can I have some honest feedback regarding this Please Lauren. Thank You 😊
Hey Shelley! Thank you so much for reaching out! That’s a great question! All our products are full spectrum, so they have less than the federally legal amount of 0.3% Delta 9 THC. It’s a bit of a grey area if the cannabinoids will appear on a drug screening as it depends on quite a few variables like the sensitivity of the test, your metabolism and the rate at which you are using the products. So much love!
Which strain work best for depression? I have the liquid gold, TO and Ba0x.
All of those are great for improving my mood and dissolving my anxiety. I really love taking the tincture (Liquid gold) daily, about an hour before bed, and then using T1 and BaOx during the day! T1 is awesome for creating calming focus and mental clarity. BaOx is a great way to start the day and get stuff done! All our strains have a common denominator of amazing anxiety relief for me! So much love!
