How To Calculate CBD Concentration? CBD Measuring Guide

Keeping a few pointers in mind is necessary when buying CBD Hemp Oil. This is important in finding out if CBD Oil is a pure extract or whether other ingredients were used in making it. It’s just becomes so complicated how to to calculate the percentage of CBD (cannabidiol) when you start to dilute pure CBD with other ingredients like Cannabinol (CBN), terpenes, flavorings and other essential oils.

Labelling on CBD products do not always indicate the CBD percentage it contains. Luckily, there are two different ways to express cannabidiol content within a product depending if it’s indicated on percent or just milligrams.

How to Compute CBD Concentration Levels in CBD Oil

So, here we go but don’t be intimidated by numbers. This is really simple. We will be teaching you how to calculate the strength of cannabidiol per 1 gram (weight) or 1 ml (volume) of Hemp CBD Oil.

Let’s start with the basics. A gram is made up of 1,000 milligrams. Assuming that you are looking at a 20% CBD Oil, this just means that there’s 20% Cannabidiol out of that 1000 mg. 200mg will be the amount of CBD per gram of 20% of CBD oil. The formula for this is 1000 * 0.[Insert CBD% from label] = total CBD per gram.

Fact is there is no official industry standard for calculating the total CBD of a cannabis product. Different manufacturers and testing facilities calculate it in various of ways. As a CBD oil consumer, have an initiative to know a precise value of the content of the product, route of administration and the method of consumption.

This may take a bit of trial and error. After you have an idea how strong the CBD is, it’s better to start small and gradually work your way up to higher doses. Once you know how many mg of CBD is right for you, you may now experience the therapeutic benefits of CBD Oil without worrying if you have ingested too much
