If you are researching CBD products for the first time, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed when trying to determine the difference between potency levels of products. Today we’re going to try and clear up that confusion a little bit so that you can decide “which CBD product is right for me?”
The Basics of CBD Potency
When browsing CBD products, you will notice that some products are labeled as being more potent than others, for example, our Tasty Hemp Oil Drops Hi-Potency Hemp Oil Drops are marked as being a high potency product but what does that mean if, for example, we compare it to our regular Tasty Hemp Drops with CBD?
When we talk about the potency of a CBD containing product we are talking about the quantity of CBD oil that is present in a specific volume of a product. So, our Tasty Hemp Oil Drops Hi-Potency Hemp Oil Drops have 1,000 mg of CBD which means that in one half of a dropper of this product or 30 drops (one dose) you are receiving 33.3 mg of CBD. Compare that to our regular Tasty Hemp Drops with CBD which are also sold in 1 oz bottles with 300 mg of CBD. That means that with our regular Tasty Hemp Drops with CBD you are receiving 10 mg of CBD per 30 drops (the same size dose). So, the higher potency CBD products contain more CBD in a single dose than the lower potency CBD products.
Which CBD Potency is Right For You?
So, with the understanding of CBD potency, how do you determine which CBD potency is right for your needs?
The first thing that you should do is talk to your healthcare professional. Knowing your health history, your doctor is better qualified to recommend a product that is best for your needs and symptom control.
The next thing that we recommend is simply beginning at the low end of the scale and working your way up if needed. Not only does this approach mean that you are taking as little of the product as possible (consider your budget!) but it also means that you can adjust your dose or potency over time if needed. If you start with the maximum dose of a high potency CBD product, you may find that your symptoms abate, but you will never know if a minimum dose of regular potency CBD product would have the same effect! That means that not only are you going to be over-supplementing, but you are also costing yourself more money than you need to be spending each month. Yes, our CBD products are priced extremely affordably, but why spend more money that you need to? Life is expensive enough already!
