Which Strength CBD Oil Should I Use?

When first starting your CBD journey, the range of different products and strengths can be overwhelming.

Furthermore, given that we are all different in terms of our body's biochemistry, and that people use CBD for a myriad of reasons, there is no one-size-fits-all CBD Oil.

To save you hours of reading forum threads trying to find which strength CBD Oil you should use, we will provide a simple strategy to help you find the right product for you. 


CBD Oil For Beginners


We always recommend that beginners start with a low strength and a low daily dose.

Either our 5% CBD Oil or 10% CBD Oil are great products to use whilst finding out how much CBD you need.

It's important to start low because some people can be highly sensitive to CBD, so only a small amount may be required. And there is also evidence to suggest that exceeding your 'optimal dose' could be counter-productive.

The optimal dose is the amount of CBD required to get the desired results. To work out your optimum dose, follow these instructions:

  1. Start with approx 10mg CBD per day, split into two 5mg doses - morning and evening. 10mg is the equivalent of two drops of our 10% oil, or 4 drops of our 5% oil.

    During the first week, reflect on how you feel. Have you felt an improvement in your well-being? If you think you need more, move on to step 2.
  2. Increase your dose to 20mg per day, split into two 10mg doses - morning and evening. 20mg is the equivalent of four drops of our 10% oil or 8 drops of our 5% oil.

    During the second week, with the increased dose, reflect on whether you feel better than the week before. If you felt better the previous week, your optimal dose may be 10mg CBD per day.

    If you are feeling great at this dose, then you might be better off with 20mg per day.

    Still not feeling much benefit? Continue increasing your daily dose by 10mg per week until you find what works best for you.

Once you find your optimal dose, you may want to consider increasing your strength and using fewer drops. 

CBD Oil For Experienced Users


Experienced CBD Oil users will have gone through the personal experimentation process and worked out how much they need per day.

The next step is to find the most economical product for long-term use. One of the great things about our products at BROWN'S CBD is that higher strengths are better value for money.

So if you know that your optimal dose is 20mg per day, it will be more affordable to have two drops of our 20% CBD Oil, than to have four drops of our 10% oil.

Similarly, if your optimal dose is 25mg, then two drops of our 25% CBD Oil will be more affordable than having 5 drops of the 10% oil.

Here is the cost per 100mg of CBD for each of our CBD Hemp Oils:

  • 5% CBD Hemp Oil - £4.99
  • 10% CBD Hemp Oil - £3.99
  • 20% CBD Hemp Oil - £3.49
  • 25% CBD Hemp Oil - £3.39
