What is CBD Oil?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a mighty phytocannabinoid found in hemp and known for supporting the body and mind in many ways. CBD specifically comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. (Not to be confused with oil that comes from hemp seeds, which contain no cannabinoids.) Why it works – The human body has a vast network of receptors, called the endocannabinoid system, which helps us maintain overall wellness and keep many of our physical processes moving in the right direction. CBD fits into the receptors, helping the body complete its efforts to keep us in good health. Learn more about the Endocannabinoid System.
How much oil does the dropper hold?
The dropper on all 30mL bottles holds .5mL of Hemp Extract Oil. The dropper on all 100mL bottles holds 1mL of Hemp Extract Oil.
Dropper use: Gently squeeze the rubber end and release. The dropper will be half full which indicates a “full dropper” (Oil will not fill the entire dropper).
What is the difference between CBD and Hemp Extract?
Hemp extract and cannabidiol (CBD) are different. To further explain, full-spectrum hemp extract is a concentrated form of the hemp plant and has all the components it has, in a concentrated form. CBD is one component of the hemp plant known as a phytocannabinoid. Charlotte’s Web proprietary hemp is naturally high in CBD. For example, our Charlotte’s Web CBD Oil: Original Formula has approximately 86 mg of hemp extract per mL. Of the 86 mg of hemp extract, we guarantee that at least 50 mg is CBD per 1 mL.
Included below is a breakdown of all of our products:
7 mg CBD per 1 mL oil contains at least 11 mg of hemp extract per mL. Of the 11 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract, you will receive at least 7 mg of CBD per serving.

1ml CBD Oil
Popular ways to take CBD include:
- Oils and tinctures (extracts of plant material dissolved in ethanol): A liquid that comes in a bottle with a dropper
- Gummies: A soft, chewable candy that’s often fruit-flavored
- Sprays: A liquid that comes in a bottle with a nozzle for spraying into the mouth
- Capsules: Tablets or softgels that are ingested by mouth
- Vapes: CBD oil that’s heated without ignition, resulting in an inhalable vapor
- Flower: Dried hemp plant that’s often ignited and smoked
- Edibles: Any food that CBD oil has been added to, such as brownies or chips
- Drinks: Any beverage that’s infused with CBD, often in the form of hemp extract
Your CBD product of choice will largely depend on your personal preferences, as well as your budget since prices vary depending on the potency of ingredients and manufacturing processes. Different mediums also offer varying levels of bioavailability—or how much of what you take is actually absorbed into your bloodstream to have an effect. For example, if you ingest 10 milligrams of CBD via 1 milliliter of liquid, your body might absorb about 60% of it, or about 6 milligrams.
Cannabinoids generally have a low bioavailability compared to other substances, according to Jordan Tishler, M.D., a physician specializing in cannabis treatment in Massachusetts. However, “products that contain emulsifiers like egg yolk (brownies) or lecithin (some gummies) do better,” he says.
With that said, ingesting CBD via gummies or other edibles may take longer to take effect since the CBD has to travel to your digestive system to be broken down and absorbed.
Can You Take Too Much CBD?
Like with any substance, you can take more CBD than your body can handle. Studies show doses up to 1,500 milligrams a day have been well-tolerated, but every person is different  Bergamaschi MM, Costa Queiroz RH, Zuardi AW, Crippa JAS. Safety and side effects of cannabidiol, a Cannabis sativa constituent. Current Drug Safety. 2011;6(4):237-49. . Ingesting too much CBD can cause unpleasant side effects, such as dry mouth, nausea, diarrhea, upset stomach, drowsiness, lightheadedness and general disorientation. While rare, liver damage can also occur.
What’s more, CBD can have serious interactions with certain medications. In evaluating available information on five prescription CBD-based medications, researchers found 139 medications could have a potential drug-drug interaction with CBD  Kocis PT, Vrana KE. Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol and Cannabidiol Drug-Drug Interactions. Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids. 2020;3:61–73. . People who take certain blood thinners, heart rhythm medications, thyroid medications and seizure medications need to be particularly careful.
At the end of the day, not all supplements are created equal, which is why it’s important to work alongside a health care provider when adding CBD to your wellness regimen and research reliable brands. And while emerging research and anecdotal evidence is promising, more large, randomized-controlled trials are needed to further understand the benefits of CBD and its dosing.

Learn how to find the perfect dose using our CBD dosage calculator.
Everybody’s been talking about CBD oil and its long list of health benefits. You’ve shopped around and found a high-quality CBD oil to start yourself off with and you’re ready to get started.
How much do I take? Can I take too much?
In this article, we’re going to talk about dosing CBD oil. We’ll cover how dosing can vary depending on factors like weight, age, the condition you’re treating, the potency of the oil you’re using, and more.
You’ll learn how to find the best dose for your body, and what to do if you experience side effects.
To make dosing as easy as possible, you can also use our CBD oil dosage calculator — which estimates your optimal dose based on your weight, desired strength, and potency of the CBD oil you’re using.

What’s the Normal Dose of CBD?
The most common dose of CBD is 20 – 40 mg per dose. Some people take much less (as low as 1 mg), others take much higher (up to 100 mg).
Depending on the strength of the product you’re using, this could be anywhere from a few drops to several milliliters of oil. It could also involve anywhere from 1 – 5 capsules or gummies per dose.
The truth is that the optimal dose of CBD is different for everybody.
It’s common for two people with identical weights to respond very differently to the same dose of CBD. One person may find the ideal dose for them is 30 mg of CBD, while the other person responds better to just 10 mg.
The ideal dose of CBD for you depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Your size and weight
- The severity of the condition you’re treating
- Your tolerance to CBD
- Your individual body chemistry
- The potency of the CBD oil, capsules, gummies, or other CBD products you’re using
The best way to find the right dose for your body is to start with a very low dose (2 mg, for example) and increase by 2-5 mg per dose until you find what works best for you.
CBD Dosage For Anxiety
The effective dose of CBD oil for anxiety or chronic stress usually falls on the moderate to heavy range of the spectrum.
However, some people with anxiety disorders find they’re especially sensitive to CBD may only need a small dose.
When using CBD oil to manage anxiety levels, it’s best to start with a mild dose first to see how you respond. If you don’t see any improvement, move up to the moderate dosage next. Most people notice improvement with the moderate or heavy dosage according to their weight.
For best results, take CBD oil first thing in the morning, and repeat around lunchtime. Many people will take a mild “booster dose” about 30 to 60 minutes before engaging in activities that trigger their anxiety.
CBD Dosage For Pain
The dose of CBD oil for pain can vary significantly. For mild pain, such as low-grade arthritis, mild PMS pain, or low back pain — a mild or moderate dose of CBD oil will usually do the trick.
For more severe pain, nerve pain, or treatment-resistant multiple sclerosis or cancer pain — you’ll likely need to use a heavy dose of CBD oil.
Some people experience the painkilling benefits of CBD oil immediately, others need to take the oil for a few days or weeks before noticing any improvement.
The time it takes to notice improvement depends on the underlying condition that’s causing the pain.
Inflammatory pain, cancer pain, or pain from endometriosis can take a long time — while arthritis pain, digestive pain, muscle pain, and PMS pain usually improve within a few hours of taking CBD oil.
For arthritis or joint pain, you can get faster effects by using a CBD pain cream alongside your CBD oil.
CBD Dosage For Sleep
CBD oil has been shown to improve both the quality and duration of sleep — but studies have shown the effective dose of CBD oil for sleep is higher than other conditions. Aim for a heavy dose of CBD oil if the goal is to improve your sleep.
Low doses of CBD (less than 10 mg) can have a stimulating effect, while higher doses (20 mg or higher) are generally much more sedative. The more CBD oil you use, the stronger the sedative effect.
Certain types of CBD extracts also tend to have a stronger impact on sleep. For example, CBD oils that contain sleep-supportive terpenes such as linalool, bisabolol, lavandin, or myrcene have the strongest sedative action.
You can also find CBD oils that contain melatonin to make the oil even better for promoting sleep.
CBD Dosage For Depression
CBD oil is useful for managing symptoms of many mood disorders — including depression.
Finding the right dose of CBD oil for depression can take some trial and error. The underlying processes that cause depression don’t happen overnight, and they won’t disappear overnight either. It can take several weeks or months of steady CBD oil supplementation — along with other lifestyle modifications — before you can expect any real improvement.
It’s best to start with a mild or moderate dosage of CBD oil for a few weeks before graduating to the heavy dose once you understand how CBD affects your body individually.
Calculating the Dose of CBD Based on Your Weight (How This Calculator Works)
While the dose of CBD is unique for everybody, there is a general rule of thumb that can be used to determine an estimated dose based on your weight and the strength of effects you’re looking for (low, medium, and high strength).
Our dosage calculator is based on the calculations listed below. These doses are estimates and should not be used to replace professional medical advice regarding dosage.
I recommend you start with the low-strength dose when using CBD for the first time and increase the dose slowly over time. When you find a dose that works, you’ve found the right dose for your body.
If you experience side effects, you’ve found your upper limit. Reduce the dose to the last amount that didn’t produce side effects.
Calculating the Dose of CBD By Weight & Strength:
- Low strength → 1 mg CBD per 10 pounds (2 mg per 10 kg)
- Medium strength → 3 mg CBD per 10 pounds (7 mg per 10 kg)
- High strength → 6 mg CBD per 10 pounds (13 mg per 10 kg)
It’s important to note that this measurement is in pure CBD, not CBD oil.
We’ll go over calculating how much CBD oil this dose works out to later on. Once you know how much CBD you should be using, you can find the equivalent amount of CBD oil depending on the potency of the oil you’re using.
CBD Dosage Chart by Weight & Strength (in mg)
The optimal dose of CBD depends on the combination of your weight and desired dosage.
A smaller, 90 lb woman is going to need a much smaller dose than a large 250 lb football player — for example. And someone looking for mild relief from stress or anxiety isn’t going to need a high dose like someone looking to treat persistent pain.
You can use this CBD dosage chart to visualize how the dose of CBD changes according to your body weight and desired strength of effects.
