Have you ever wondered whether or not CBD oil might help with your stress, physical discomfort, pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, general wellness, sleep problems, and other maladies? If you’re one of the millions of consumers who have heard about CBD oil but aren’t quite sure what it is, what it’s used for, or what dosage levels are most effective, this article is going to cover all of that for you. So get your pen and paper out, because we’re going to talk about some important things about CBD that will probably change your life.

Our Goal With This Article

We want people to know not only what CBD oil is but how the potency, or strength, of a particular batch can be an important thing to look for when you purchase it. It helps to understand why consumers use low, medium, and strong concentrations for varying conditions. Finally, it’s essential to know the standard way in which manufacturers determine strength.

What is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol, also called CBD, is derived directly from the common cannabis plant and is one of more than 100 so-called cannabinoids present in the plant. Many of those substances have medicinal benefits that can help people with all sorts of ailments. CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant, it is cleaned of all impurities and mixed into various concentrations and sold to consumers. These oils/powders are then divided into 3 different categories which are called – Full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD and CBD isolate.

Does Strength Matter?

Strength of CBD oil is one of the most important features of particular brands. For example, Crescent Canna has an extra strength CBD oil with 5000mg of CBD in a 30mL bottle – that’s 167mg per mL – making it one of the strongest CBD products on the market. Of course, the quality of the original plant, the thoroughness of the extraction process, storage, and many other factors can affect the final product you receive and use. Potency, or strength, is a key point to consider when purchasing CBD oil of any brand. When you consume 20 drops, for example, of a high potency oil, you’re getting much more CBD into your system. Think of how different weak coffee is from strong and you’ll quickly appreciate the varying strengths of this product. 

Low Potency

Why do some people prefer low potency doses? For starters, if you are have a petite build and don’t weigh much, you generally need less. Also, some people are born with metabolisms that react well to small doses and have no need to take a larger dose. Finally, it’s generally a good idea to start with a lower potency to gauge how your body reacts to CBD oil the first time you consume it.

Mid Potency

Why do some people prefer low potency doses? For starters, if you are have a petite build and don’t weigh much, you generally need less. Also, some people are born with metabolisms that react well to small doses and have no need to take a larger dose. Finally, it’s generally a good idea to start with a lower potency to gauge how your body reacts to CBD oil the first time you consume it.

High Potency

If you are a heavier, larger person, or have a metabolism that doesn’t react to lower or mid-level dosages, then a high potency CBD is usually your best buy. Also, many consumers find that they occasionally need higher doses to deal with stubborn physical and emotional problems like sleep disturbances, depression, and more. We discuss this topic in more depth below and offer five reasons for why you should be using higher, more concentrated doses of CBD oil.

How is Strength Determined?

Strength is a simple mathematical formula. When you purchase the standard size bottle of CBD oil, 30 ml, it contains between 300 and 1,000 mg of CBD oil. When you translate those different strengths into drops, it means that low-dose oil of 300 mg per 30 ml bottle contains about 10 milligram of CBD per milliliter.

The mid-range dosage, of 600 mg of CBD per 30 ml bottle, contains about 20 mg of CBD per mL. The higher-dose 1,000 mg of CBD oil in a 30 ml bottle means you’re getting 33 mg of CBD per mL. And if you’re someone who’s looking for a much higher potency, Crescent Canna’s extra strength 5000mg per 30mL is the one. You’ll get 167mg of CBD oil per mL dropper.

5 Reasons Why You Should Use Extra Strength CBD Oil

There are valid reasons for using any of the dosage levels, depending on your particular situation, medical condition, body size, and other factors. So why do some buyers only choose extra strength CBD oil?

Here are five common reasons why:

1. Higher Than Average Body Weight

Larger people need stronger doses to accommodate higher body weight. In fact, larger people tend to need higher doses of all types of medicines, so this reason is the most obvious of the five.

2. Metabolism That Requires Larger Doses

Not so obvious is the fact that some folks are born with brain chemistry that is highly sensitive to CBD oil and other cannabinoids. If you are on the opposite end of that spectrum and have a system that is not so sensitive, you might need higher doses just to get an average amount of relief from anxiety, pain, sleep problems, etc.

3. Sleep-related Issues

People with sleep issues often find that extra strength CBD oil is required. Even if you are of low body weight, it’s possible you’ll discover that a higher dose is the best remedy for sleep-related disorders.

4. High Anxiety, Depression, or Stress

If you determine that your anxiety, stress, or depression does not respond to low or mid-level strength CBD oil, extra strength might do the trick. Sometimes all you need is a few milligrams more per day, which means ramping up to the next level of concentration.

5. Recurrent Inflammation or Pain

Ongoing pain and inflammation can be particularly hard to deal with. It’s quite common for consumers to resort to extra strength CBD to get relief from problems like these. Occasional pain is one thing, but if you’ve been living with aches and pains that seemingly never cease, consider a high-concentration dose of CBD.

Putting Everything Together

When you begin using CBD oil, consider starting out with very low doses and slowly building up to whatever the effective amount is for your metabolism and for the conditions you need help with. Make notes about how you feel and how each dosage level affects you as you ramp up. Then, when you reach the right level, you’ll know what dose is the ideal concentration.

It’s also important to understand that as you age, lose or gain weight, or your physical symptoms increase or decrease, you might need to change the dosage of CBD oil to match your situation. Always know the state of your body and pay careful attention to your overall health and the relief you get from CBD oil as time progresses.
