What CBD Strength is Right for Me?

Are you confused about the difference in CBD oil strengths, and what is the right CBD potency to take for you?

There is a flood of options not just in brand, but in strength and type of CBD, and the labels can be confusing.

With so many descriptors, what do all of the numbers on the labels mean? We understand there is a lot of information to take in about CBD, so here's some helpful information for understanding the differences in CBD oil tincture strengths.

Thryv Organics' CBD Product Labels

When reading our popular CBD tincture labels, you'll find out that we offer three differences in CBD oil potency: 450mg, 900mg, and 1350mg. This mg number will be found on the front of your Thryv Organics CBD Oil Drops tincture bottle label. Each tincture bottle contains one fluid ounce (30 milliliters) of high-quality, organic, hemp-derived CBD tincture oil.

The amount in milligrams (mg) on the front label is how much CBD is in the entire bottle. Each of our CBD tincture bottles comes with a dropper for choosing the serving size. The dropper is marked with four different measuring amounts: .25 mL, .50 mL, .75 mL, and 1.00 mL.

If a bottle is 30 milliliters (mL) in total, and there is 900mg of CBD in the bottle, then each full dropper (1ml) will yield 30mg of CBD.

CBD strength is a matter of concentration. The higher the mg strength you choose, the less you should have to use; therefore, your product will last longer.

How Do I Know What CBD Strength Is Best for Me?

CBD is a relatively new phenomenon in the wellness market, meaning that a baseline or recommended CBD oil dosage has yet to be established for those taking CBD. Keep in mind that each individual responds differently based on their own needs and their body's endocannabinoid system. How each person experiences the effects of cannabidiol can also be influenced by a variety of other factors, such as your metabolism or weight.

At Thryv Organics, we always say, "Start low and go slow" to allow you to realize your body's needs and how it will respond to adding CBD to your wellness regimen. We will never push for you to buy more than what you may want or need, but determining early in your CBD journey what strength is right for you is essential to find the most benefit from the CBD products you choose to take. Through one of our phone or virtual product consultations (we also offer them in our CBD store in Dallas), we can help you determine the best product for you and guide you to a strength that may be the best fit for you.  

Everyone is different, and some people find success with only 10mg of CBD per day, while others may consume up to 100mg of CBD oil each day to feel the results they're seeking.

Often, low-potency CBD oil, like our 450mg CBD Oil Drops, might be enough to help you handle daily functions, promote a sense of relaxation, and support general bodily function. Even just a bit of CBD may help users get through their day.

Buying CBD oil with 900 mg of CBD may be ideal for those looking for rest, or willing to promote mental clarity and a sense of calm.

Our strongest tincture contains 2250 mg of CBD. These high-potency CBD Oil Drops are often used by our seasoned CBD customers or those who feel they need more of a CBD punch.

If you want to further determine the exact potency of your CBD oil, you should take a look at specialized lab reports.

How To Read CBD Lab Reports?

Although you usually can get the vital info regarding potency and composition from the label or website (e.g., how many mg of CBD your product has or whether it's based on organic olive oil, organic hemp seed oil, or any other carrier oil), to know the full truth you have to read the provided lab reports.

CBD lab reports, also known as certificates of analysis (COA), are essential for anyone who wants to purchase hemp-derived CBD products. These reports provide valuable information about the quality, purity, and potency of CBD products.

However, reading a lab report can be quite challenging, especially for those who are not familiar with the terminology used.

Firstly, you need to verify the physical characteristics of the product in question. The certificate of analysis should go into detail about the color and appearance of your CBD oil, the aroma that CBD oil has, and the package it was wrapped in. If you spot "PASS" in any of the analyzed categories, that aspect of the CBD oil should be okay.

Next, examine the cannabinoid profile of your CBD oil. This section of the report will show the levels of various cannabinoids present in the product. Ensure that the CBD concentration (the amount of mg of CBD in a product) in your CBD oil falls within the range advertised and the THC content is below 0.3% (the legal limit). The report may also include the levels of other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, and CBN.

One of the sections worth looking at is the terpene profile. Terpenes are organic compounds that give plants their distinct aroma and taste. The terpene profile of your CBD solution can indicate the product's quality and potential benefits you may experience.

The residual solvent analysis section is also important. This section will show if there are any harmful solvents, such as butane or propane, used in the manufacturing process. Any residual solvents must fall within the safe limits (in other words, get a "PASS") to ensure the product's safety.

Moving on, look for the microbiological testing section - it determines the presence of any harmful bacteria, yeast, or mold in the product. Ensure that the CBD item in question has passed this test and doesn't have harmful concentrations of unwanted microbes.

Reading a CBD lab report can be challenging, but understanding the information it provides can help you make an informed decision about the product's quality, purity, and potency. By examining the cannabinoid profile, terpene profile, residual solvent analysis, and microbiological testing, you can ensure that you are purchasing a quality product with high CBD oil potency.

Do I Have To Consume CBD Oil the Traditional Way?

Although consuming low and high-potency CBD oil the traditional way (directly through a dropper) is the most common approach to administering this beneficial compound, it's not always the most convenient. If you're not a fan of the rich, earthy taste of hemp extracts, you might struggle to consume it directly. However, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on the potential advantages that CBD may offer.

Add It To Your Food

Adding CBD oil to food and beverages has become increasingly popular in recent years. CBD oil can be mixed into a variety of foods and drinks, ranging from smoothies and coffee to even baked goods. There's nothing stopping you from adding a few drops of your favorite cannabidiol product to your morning Coleslaw or other homemade salad - it's all about what you love!

When adding CBD oil to food or beverages, it's important to pay attention to the CBD dosage, as different CBD products and servings can have varying effects. Additionally, some CBD oils are not heat-stable and may lose their qualities when exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, it is recommended to add CBD oil to foods or drinks after they have been cooked or heated to avoid any loss of potency.

Overall, adding CBD oil to food and drinks can be an easy and enjoyable way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine.

Use It Topically

CBD oils can also be used in a topical manner - meaning that they can be applied directly to the skin to provide localized support to certain areas of your body. CBD oils may be used to promote skin wellness in a natural and effective way.

If you are an athlete, you may apply CBD oils topically to promote post-workout recovery - something that may be beneficial to those dealing with daily exercise regimes and accustomed to the aftereffects of training. However, to maximize the results, you probably have to experiment with different product strengths and look for the most effective CBD dosage.

The reason is, maintaining general bodily well-being after workouts may require more than other situations, like getting a good night's sleep or unwinding after a long day at work.

Keep in mind that CBD oil is not designed solely for skin application, so if you are serious about supporting your physical wellness as an athlete, you may want to start with a higher-strength dedicated topical product like a proper CBD salve.

Will I Get High From a Higher-strength CBD?

No. Regardless of the CBD oil strength, pure CBD will not make you high.

CBD is a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis and hemp plants, and it does not produce the major and distinct psychoactive effects associated with Delta-9 THC. Your CBD oil strength doesn't matter here - you could consume a large amount of CBD products with high CBD potency, and you still shouldn't feel intoxicated.

It is important to note that some people may experience different effects from using CBD, depending on factors such as their individual body chemistry, the method of application, and the quality of the product. However, these are generally mild and do not include the disorienting or euphoric sensations associated with THC.

If you are concerned about experiencing any adverse effects from using higher-strength CBD products, it is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or conduct thorough research to ensure that you are using a safe and reputable product.
