CBD oil dosage (Video): Which CBD concentration is right for me?

by Caitlin March

One question we hear a lot at Populum is “How much CBD hemp oil should I take?” Our best answer for calculating CBD dosage is that it varies for each individual. That might sound like a cop out, but like any other health or wellness product, what you need versus what someone else might need depends on a variety of factors. That being said, we have few things for you to think about before jumping in.

Here at Populum, we offer full-spectrum hemp CBD oil tinctures in four different concentrations:

  • 250mg

  • 500mg

  • 1000mg

  • 2000mg

In many ways, all of our CBD hemp oil concentrations will provide you with the same experience.

You’re getting the same quality and quantity of CBD oil in each bottle.

The only difference is the strength of the oil. Regardless of concentration, every single batch is extracted from the highest quality hemp, grown by farmers right here in the USA. All batches are tested through the same third-party lab, and you’ll receive those results in your box. It’s then packaged at a GMP Certified facility, where each offering is placed in the same 1oz bottles. The suggested serving size of 1ml is consistent across all bottles, each containing around 30 servings.

They all offer our delicious orange flavor.

When we started Populum, we found that one of the most common deterrent against trying CBD hemp oil was that people don’t enjoy taking bitter supplements. Most CBD oils have a strong earthy taste, so we worked on creating a subtle and delicious orange flavor that makes for a more pleasurable experience administering the oil every day. No matter the strength of CBD in your hemp oil, you’ll be tasting a sweet orange essence rather than dirt.

Populum offers 4 different CBD concentrations, each with different dosage recommendations

How do I calculate CBD oil dosage with each concentration?

If you’re unfamiliar with CBD hemp oil, it can be really confusing when deciding where to start. So how do you differentiate between the levels of concentration, and what’s the right choice for you? Simply put, you just divide the bottle's total concentration by the amount of serving it has. For example, our 250mg bottle has 30 servings, so (250mg / 30 servings) = ~8mg / serving!

Here's a more detailed breakdown:

  • 250mg: This is a great option if it’s your first time trying CBD hemp oil. As the lowest concentration, the Basic 250 allows you to test out CBD at a safe, low dosage. The Basic 250 contains 8mg of CBD per serving, and many people experience the wellness benefits of CBD at this level

  • 500mg: This is our most popular offering, and a great way to experiment with dosage. If you’re truly lost as to where to start, a half-serving of the Signature 500 will give you the same dose of CBD as our Basic 250, and two droppers is equivalent to a serving of the Advanced 1000. At this level, you have plenty of room to figure out what the best level of concentration is for your needs and decide which bottle to purchase next. The Signature 500 contains 17mg of CBD in each serving, and is a top choice amongst our subscribers who have established a daily regimen of CBD hemp oil

  • 1000mg: Sometimes you just need more. This is one of the highest concentration we offer, and it contains 33mg of CBD per serving. We don’t recommend using the Advanced 1000 as your starting point, but we have plenty of customers who find they just aren’t getting what they need from our Signature 500, and this level offers a little extra.

  • 2000mg: This is the highest potency Populum CBD tincture yet to be added to the lineup. Developed as a result of consumer demand, the 2,000mg tincture has 66mg of full-spectrum hemp CBD per serving alongside a healthy mix of naturally occurring rare cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and CBC.
