Charlotte’s Web extract is available in four different strengths of oils and two strengths of capsules, so if you’re new to CBD or our products, you might not know where to start. Here are some tips that will help get you started or to move up to a new strength:
Here’s How We Recommend Getting Started:
If you’re just getting started, you might not yet have experienced your desired results. That can be frustrating. This doesn’t mean that hemp extract isn’t working, but we believe it means you might not have found your perfect concentration.
We are grateful for the remarkable feedback we’ve received from so many who are using Charlotte’s Web products for their health: for mood optimization, focus, recovery from exercise-induced inflammation, better sleep, and more.
And remember, if you “don’t feel anything”, don’t feel frustrated. This just means that you haven’t found your ideal concentration level, yet.
For more information about how much CBD oil you should take for a specific bottle, look at the infographic below:
Our CBD oils are a popular option when it comes to fine-tuning CBD usage in your daily routine. At Charlotte’s Web, we’ve made it easier to understand the correct serving size and the right amount of CBD in each bottle. Before you even make a purchase, you’ll notice that our CBD products are named so you can easily identify the amount of CBD (stated as “phytocannabinoids” in milligrams) contained in each milliliter. This should clarify what you’ll be consuming before you even make a purchase. Some examples:
We’ve found that CBD response times are just as unique as our individual body chemistry — so different lifestyle factors tend to play a role in our individual health journeys. Some people may notice a benefit the first time they try CBD, while for others it might take up to a month. If you’re curious about why learn more about how the endocannabinoid system works.
How do I read a CBD Oil Product Label?
This makes it pretty easy for CBD newbies and seasoned users alike to know how much CBD oil they’re taking right away.
Depending on what you’re looking for from CBD, you may require a different product. For many people, 10-20 mg of CBD per day is where they notice their desired results, but some people take even more. We recommend going through our CBD product finder to see the options you could start with. Depending on which one you choose, your results may vary depending on the amount of CBD in its recommended serving size.
But that certainly doesn’t mean we want to leave you guessing — the recommended serving sizes on Charlotte’s Web™ product packages and our “Sweet Spot” guide below help show you how to find the right amount of CBD for you.
We always recommend to “start low and go slow.” When you begin to ramp up the amount of CBD products in your daily routine, it’s important to understand how much to take when first starting out. When you receive your first CBD oil dietary supplement, you’ll find the following information on the box:
Macro doses of CBD are often used for cancer, epilepsy, seizure disorders, liver disease, and other severe conditions.
Transdermal: Patch. Onset: 15 mins. Duration: 12 hours.
Ingestion: edible, in food or liquid. Onset: 30 mins – 2 hours. Duration: 6-8 hours.
Most tinctures that you purchase will tell you on the label how many mg of CBD are in 1 serving, dropperful, or number of drops — so you can carefully measure out your dosage. Every one is different, so check your labels and contact the company if you aren’t sure!
I asked my friend Greg from Supherbals to weigh in on this, and here’s his answer:
I put together a CBD dosing chart with information from the book CBD: A Patient’s Guide To Medical Cannabis (which is an incredible read, by the way). If you really want to learn everything you need to know about CBD, read this book. It’s a gold mine.
Hemp and marijuana are 2 different plants within the cannabis family. CBD from hemp (which contains .3% THC or less) is currently being sold in many US stores and online. CBD from the marijuana plant (often formulated with higher levels of THC) can only be purchased at dispensaries in states with medical or recreational legal use. The CBD molecule is virtually identical from each plant, but some report more significant effects from marijuana-derived CBD vs. hemp-derived CBD (as the marijuana plant often contains higher levels of other cannabinoids, contributing to the “entourage effect” — the presence of more cannabinoids strengthens the effect of the others).
