How Does Our CBD Tincture Dosage Calculator Work?

Need help understanding our tincture dosage calculator? No problem. We will help you troubleshoot as well. Many try various tincture dosage calculators and then say that CBD has done nothing for them. There are few answers to this common problem.

[CBD Tincture Potency In MG] / [Volume of Tincture In ML] = MG per ML

Number of Doses Per Day

Our calculator asks you for the number of doses per day. No more than 1500mg should be taken per day. Our calculator adjusts accordingly to how many times you would like to take you dose per day. Normally people take it 2-3 times daily, but one can go up to seven.

What Does Sublingual Mean? 

Sublingual is one method of taking CBD oil. Sublingual means beneath the tongue. It is complicated and very straightforward. With your tincture full of your desired CBD oil amount, drop the oil beneath your tongue and hold for 30-60 seconds.

What Kind of CBD Tinctures Are There?

Two types of CBD tinctures are on the market today. 

  • Full Spectrum CBD Tinctures
  • THC-ND CBD Tinctures

What is that supposed to mean?! The sole difference between these two tincture oil types is THC content. Full spectrum CBD oil contains that legal, non-harmful 0.3% THC level. THC-ND means there is a non-detectable THC level. You may be drawn to one more than the other because THC is included in one and not the other. 

Hōlus takes pride in highly esteemed third party testing standards. We test THC levels multiple times during our process. Our clean and green extraction techniques create quality THC-ND and full spectrum oils for our customers peace of mind. Risks of cross contamination using our COsystem is the lowest ever in the industry. Our Ph.D. separation chemists have full control over quality control.

What Is Bioavailability?

Bioavailability refers the amount of CBD our bodies can essentially use. Just becuase you take a certain amount of oil, does not mean you’re body will absorb it entirely. While our bodies naturally welcome in cannabinoids like CBD, they often require a little push for us to fully experience their benefits.

How Can I Increase My Bioavailability?

Check For These Important Ingredients

One way to increase your bioavailability is by checking your products ingredients, specifically what carrier oils are included. Carrier oils are one way CBD can be absorbed faster. It’s like CBD needs a piggy back ride, and carrier oils are happy to help! Alone, cannabidiol oil has very limited entrance because it is not easily absorbed. There are two popular carrier oils that you should look for when purchasing tinctures.

  • Coconut Oil (MCT Oil)
  • Olive oil (Virgin)

Hōlus formulates everything from tinctures to topicals using MCT oil. Coconut oil is known for the high level of absorption it has with our bodies because it consists of medium-chain triglycerides or MCT’s. MCT is a short chain fatty acid that our bodies can use right away. Long chain fatty acids must be broken down before our bodies can utilize them.

Not only does MCT oil increase how much oil our bodies use, but it is also extremely healthy. Coconut oil is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, high in vitamin E, a practical preservative, and also weight loss encouraging. Virgin olive oil is another carrier oil option.

Take Your Dose With Food

Each one of us has an endocannabinoid system within our central nervous system. Throughout this system we have cannabinoid receptors that help maintain quite a bit of our bodies functions such as our sleep cycle, pain levels, and most importantly, our homeostasis or resting state. Like mentioned above, people often take their dose via beneath the tongue or simply swallow. CBD oil takes two different routes depending on your choice. 

Swallowing CBD takes the oil through your digestive system where it must be broken down and then absorbed into the liver. Sublingually, it merely seeps into your bloodstream. It is best to digest CBD with food to increase your bioavailability. 

Should I Take CBD Consistently?

Should I take CBD consistently? Consistency provides measurable results. Your needs may change over time and for that reason, our calculator will always be here for you, but taking your dosage consistently allows you to observe what works for you and adjust as needed.

Why Take CBD?

CBD has countless uses and health benefits. Many choose to take CBD after all else fails for sleep, stress, balance, comfort, relief, relaxation, and overall health. Tinctures are very popular CBD product which effects the entirety of the body.

Is There A Right Time To Take CBD?

There is no right or wrong time to take CBD. It is completely up to you. CBD oil takes time for our bodies to absorb and feel its effects. Depending on you’re purpose for taking CBD and if you’re a complete beginner, we have some suggested times for you to get the most out of you’re experience. 

Experiment with timing. Each individuals sleep cycles, study habits, workout routines, diet, and overall schedules are different. Times vary between products, but on average between the time you take CBD and the time you feel its effects, is around 15-45 minutes.

How Fast Does CBD Oil Work?

This is a very common question! We’re glad you asked. CBD oil is versatile in use and can be taken sublingually (beneath the tongue) or ingested (with food). CBD oil takes patience. If you time it just right, everything will work out. It also depends on how you take it.

CBD Oil Is Not Fast Food

Many have gone down the road of tincture dosage disappointment. They take their calculated dosage and expect their results now. CBD is not fast food. Between taking your dose solely beneath the tongue or combined with food, effects may show between 15-45 minutes.

Patience Is Key

If you aren’t feeling the effects of CBD right away, be patient. It will take time. Another reason you may not be feeling the effects of CBD is lack of bioavailability. 

If you choose to swallow CBD oil on an empty stomach, chances of you feeling its effects are very low. Taking CBD with or after a meal will increase your chances of feeling what you expect to feel.
