How to determine CBD quantity to use

CBD Dosage - Best-CBD-Hemp-Oil

When determining the best quantity of CBD for you, we recommend you start slowly, and gradually increase the amount over a 3-4 week period.  You may want to choose the number of mg per day based on CBD suggested use guidelines below for different health situations or based on weight if you are using CBD for a child or pet.

Regularly taking CBD can help with overall well-being, including balancing the nervous system, promoting psychological clarity, assisting with healthy inflammation reaction and providing advanced anti-oxidant support.

A general rule of thumb for an adult is to start with 1/4 of a dropper one to two times per day, gradually increasing each week.  But some people may want to start with as little as 1 drop one to two times per day. For more detailed CBD suggested use guidelines, keep reading.

Number of CBD Milligrams (mg) per Bottle

First, it’s important to know how many mg (milligrams) of CBD there are in each serving of the bottle of CBD you have.  With HempWorx CBD oil, we have three strengths of CBD oil:

  • HempWorx CBD 500 mg (mint or natural flavor):  Contains 10 mg CBD in every 20 drops, or .5 mg per drop
  • HempWorx CBD 750 mg (mint or natural flavor):  Contains 15 mg CBD in every 20 drops, or .75 mg per drop
  • HempWorx CBD 250 mg (bacon flavor for pets):  Contains 5 mg CBD in every 20 drops, or .25 mg per drop

A full dropper contains approximately 20 drops, and each bottle contains approximately 50 full droppers of oil.   Click here to see HempWorx CBD Oil labels.

What is the best amount of CBD for you?

cbd-dosage-cbd-word-imageEvery person is unique and metabolizes CBD differently.  The amount of CBD that is right for you may be different than for someone else.  The endocannabinoid system, the system with receptors for cannabinoids like CBD, complex and far from understood, but what is understood is that each person has a different endocannabinoid system, so while the instructions on a bottle of CBD oil may be clear, the quantity used may affect two different people differently.

Below are general suggested use guidelines about CBD:

  • General Health: 2.5-15mg CBD oil daily
  • Joint Discomfort or for Cartilage and Joint Function: 2.5-20 mg CBD oil daily for an average of 25 days
  • Glaucoma: 20-40 mg CBD oil daily (more than 40 mg daily may actually increase eye pressure)
  • Seizure disorder: 100mg CBD oil daily for up to 5 months
  • Increase appetite: 1-2 mg CBD oil daily
  • Movement problems: 10 mg CBD oil daily for six weeks
  • Support immune function: 2.5 – 120 mg CBD oil daily for 2-15 weeks
  • Help with maintaining normal mood: 40-1,280 mg CBD oil daily for up to four weeks
  • Relief of occasional sleeplessness: 40-160 mg CBD oil daily

For babies and children, we recommend starting with a small amount of CBD, such as one drop one-two times per day.  For children under 20 lbs, consider starting with one drop 1-2 times per day.

CBD Dosage Calculator for Pets (by body weight)

CBD Dosage for PetsFor pets, place CBD Oil drops directly into pet’s mouth, or mix in water or food.  You can even put CBD oil on a pet’s paws or fur.  For our cat, we put drops of CBD oil on her paws or places on her fur where she grooms herself often.  The guidelines below are based on the HempWorx 250 mg CBD oil for pets.

•  Under 10 lbs = 1-2 drops (1/4-1/2 mg of CBD oil)
•  11-20 lbs = 4-8 drops (1-2 mg of CBD oil)
•  21-45 lbs= 8-12 drops (2–3 mg of CBD oil)
•  46-74 lbs = 16-20 drops (4–5 mg of CBD oil)

We also have beef-flavored CBD Dog Treats (soy free, corn free, grain free) with 2.5 mg of CBD oil in each treat (click here for label).  Each bag of treats contains approximately 33 treats.  Click here to order CBD oil or CBD dog treats.

Which HempWorx CBD Oil is right for me?

We recommend the HempWorx CBD Oil 500 mg for children, babies and people targeting general health results, and people who tend to be very sensitive to supplementation.  It depends on the person, of course, but many people do great with the HempWorx 500 mg CBD Oil and will never need the 750 mg.  If you aren’t sure which strength to start with, you can always try the 500 mg and then increase to the 750 mg next time if needed.

We recommend the 750 mg for people who need higher doses or for large animals like horses.  And we recommend the 250 mg CBD for pets for cats, dogs and smaller pets.

Cumulative CBD Effect

CBD Oil effects are usually not instant.  Some people can feel its effects quickly, but many people make the same mistake – they only use CBD once in a while, expecting instant results.  CBD can take time and consistency to work, just like many supplements, and similar to your health issues, it won’t necessarily change things overnight.  An important key is finding the right CBD dosage.  The next is taking it consistently.

Some people get results in a few days or a week.  For others, it can take a couple of weeks to start feeling a difference.

Instructions for taking CBD Oil

For internal use, take the CBD oil drops sublingually.  Use the dropper to place the CBD oil under your tongue.  Hold under your tongue for up to 30 seconds.

HempWorx CBD Choices:  Full Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate

Initally, we offered only a full-spectrum CBD oil.  In May 2018, we also started offering started a THC Free CBD isolate oil in the 500 mg and 750 mg bottle sizes.  Both are legal in all 50 states in the U.S.

When you click our SHOP NOW button, you will see both choices.  Full-spectrum CBD oils contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including a very small amount of naturally occurring THC (in third party lab tests, HempWorx full spectrum CBD oil is shown to contain .03% of THC by dry weight).

Some people feel the full spectrum CBD oil is more potent than a THC Free CBD isolate oil.  With our full spectrum CBD oil, in most cases the small amount of THC is not detectable on a urine or saliva test, but we recommend checking with your employer or whomever else it may concern before taking our full spectrum CBD oil.

We have recently developed a CBD isolate tincture, which is 100% THC Free.  This is an ideal solution for people who want to experience the benefits of CBD, but who do not want to ingest any THC.

If you are a new HempWorx CBD Oil user, remember to start small.  According to ProjectCBD, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to making CBD research transparent, there is no established lethal CBD dose.  However, as with any new health products, it’s important to be cautious as you find out how your body reacts to CBD.  Be sure to increase your CBD dosage gradually.
