Learn how to determine the potency of CBD products and choose a strength that’s right for you
In the CBD marketplace, you may not always know what you’re getting. If you’re not sure what the numbers on the labels mean or how they relate to your reasons for trying CBD, you’re not alone.
How is CBD potency measured?
The potency of CBD oil is based on two factors: The amount of CBD isolate (pure CBD extract) it contains, and the amount of carrier oil and other ingredients.
All Crescent CBD Drops, for example, come in a bottle that contains 1 fluid ounce (30 mL) of oil. Most of this content is fractionated coconut oil (MCT oil), which is used as a carrier. It’s mixed with a very small amount of natural flavoring and a specified amount of CBD isolate.
As you go up in CBD strength from, say, 1,000 mg to 2,000 mg, that same ounce of carrier contains twice as much CBD isolate.
Crescent CBD Drops come in five strengths, ranging from 500 mg to 9,000 mg of CBD per 1-ounce bottle. Our 9,000 mg drops contain the strongest CBD concentration available on the market.
So, how do you determine how much CBD you’re getting in each dose?
To make measuring easy, Crescent CBD Drops come with a clearly marked dropper for accurate measurement up to 1 mL. Since there are 30 mL of oil in the bottle, just divide the CBD concentration by 30 to determine how much CBD you get in each 1 mL dropper:
|CBD Per Bottle (30 mL)||CBD Per Dropper (1 mL)|
|500 mg||16.67 mg|
|1,000 mg||33.33 mg|
|2,000 mg||66.67 mg|
|5,000 mg||167 mg|
|9,000 mg||300 mg|
What CBD oil strength is right for me?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this, and the amount that works for one person may not be the same for someone else. That’s why we typically recommend starting with a lower amount of CBD and increasing your CBD intake until desired results are achieved.
Keep in mind that you can get a comparable amount of CBD no matter which product you buy by adjusting the amount you take. For example, one full dropper of a 500 mg CBD tincture contains the same amount of CBD content (16.67 mg) as a half-dropper of a 1,000 mg CBD tincture.
For those with severe symptoms, it may be more practical to use higher-strength CBD products simply because you get more CBD content in each dropper.
Lowest CBD price per milligram
We know that selecting CBD products may ultimately come down to price, especially in uncertain economic times. It can make financial sense to purchase a higher-strength CBD oil because it’s more concentrated and therefore costs less per milligram.
Crescent Canna’s High-Potency CBD Drops are not just the strongest CBD products on the market, but also the best value, with the lowest cost per milligram of CBD.
To determine the price per milligram of any CBD product, simply divide the total price of that product by the number of milligrams of CBD. For example, our Max Strength CBD Drops retail for $229.99 per bottle and contain 9,000 mg of CBD, which amounts to 2.5 cents per milligram of CBD. Similarly, our Extra Strength 5,000 mg CBD Drops retail for $149.99 per bottle, which equals a cost per milligram of CBD of just 2.9 cents.
By creating products with the highest CBD concentration, we’ve been able to get the price per milligram of CBD down to the lowest in the industry. So even though there are many products with a lower price tag, you won’t find a better deal.
