Reading a CBD product label can sometimes feel like reading a maths paper. With percentages, milligrams and millilitres in play, CBD strength is easily misunderstood. We break down the numbers so you can better understand what’s in each CBD product and how to make an informed choice.
CBD STRENGTH DECODED
Always read the ingredients label on CBD drops to check how the CBD is listed. Sometimes the % or mg of CBD listed within a product isn’t the pure CBD amount – it can refer to what is called a ‘CBD ingredient’ which itself could be a blend of CBD with another carrier i.e., a diluted down concentration of CBD.
DIVIDED BY CBD MG
We’ll chat CBD drops dosage in a separate story but recommendations on how many drops to take are included on each of our product pages and the FSA recently issued guidance of 70mg CBD max per day (approx. 28 drops of 5% CBD).
Tincture is the fastest absorption method. It is absorbed sublingually (under the tongue), which means that it acts faster than most other forms of CBD products.
While hemp oil has beneficial properties of its own, when buying CBD products you should really look specifically for the quantity of CBD that is present in a particular product.
Also worth mentioning is that CBD has maximum efficiency when used consistently, much like a daily multivitamin supplement. This effect is due to the fact that it takes a while for your body to adjust to the chemical compounds found in CBD. As there are no psychoactive or dangerous components present in our CBD, you can safely increase your serving size to find the optimal concentration for you. And don’t worry about taking too much CBD. It is impossible to overdose on CBD or to ‘take too much’.
Usually the CBD content is declared as a percentage of the total volume, but it can also be shown as the total mg of CBD.
This method of how to make CBD oil is growing in popularity. The method involves extraction using a carrier oil. Olive oil is most commonly used in this process. The rise in popularity of this method is due to the added benefits of the nutrients in the oil used and the fact that it is safe and free of unwanted residues.
You’ll still need to continue fine-tuning your wellness experience on your own, but our guidelines can offer a good starting point whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or experienced CBD user.
To truly benefit from CBD, you need to listen to your body and adjust the concentration and/or frequency accordingly.

Comparing Cibdol to other CBD brands
To help you calculate the amount (mg) of CBD you’ll be taking, you can use the following as a guide:
When we talk about the strength or concentration of CBD, we’re referring to how many milligrams of CBD a given product contains. If we take our 500mg CBD oil (10ml) as an example, it contains 2.5mg per drop, while our 1000mg oil contains 5mg. As the milligrams of CBD increases, so too does the potency.
CBD powder (also called CBD isolate or CBD crystals) is a highly concentrated version of CBD that’s best suited to experienced users. You can add CBD crystals to food or sprinkle them directly under your tongue, but most experienced users prefer infusing them into homemade oils. They’re not the most convenient option for everyday use, but if you’re trying to avoid THC completely, the highly concentrated CBD formula is ideal.
If you’re trying CBD for the first time, it’s a good idea to divide the recommended serving in half, and build your dose slowly over several days. Once you know how your body responds, you can increase or maintain as you wish.
