How Does Our CBD Tincture Dosage Calculator Work?
Bodyweight: Your personal weight is a large factor in the dose of CBD your individual body will require. The higher the weight, the more likely the higher dosage of CBD will be needed.
Potency: This factor can be very overwhelming when searching for CBD oil online. You will find some labels and descriptions referring to “potency”. This refers to the amount of CBD in the particular tincture. Potency will affect the needed dosage required. Potency ranges from as low as 250mg to as high as 6000mg or more. The higher the potency, the lower the dose.
Purpose or Goals: While CBD is not capable of curing an ailment, it can be used to support a goal of a healthier body. Some people have found preference in taking CBD to help in general overall health. It may also help with restlessness, headaches, muscle soreness, minor irritations, and joint discomfort. CBD use should be discussed with a physician before use, especially if you have a serious medical condition or use prescription medications.
Volume: Not all labels reflect the dosage of CBD/serving, many show the amount of CBD in the container. To calculate the CBD potency per every milliliter of oil. Rule of thumb is to take your tinctures potency divided by the volume of liquid.
[CBD Tincture Potency In MG] / [Volume of Tincture In ML] = MG per ML
Number of Doses/Day: Our calculator adjusts to divide your per day dose according to how many times you would like to take the CBD.
Some Questions You May Have
What Does Sublingual Mean?
Sublingual is one method of taking CBD oil. Simply put, sublingual means beneath the tongue. The best results are achieved when you put the desired amount of CBD oil beneath your tongue and hold for 30-60 seconds.

Our clean & green extraction technique creates quality 0%THC and full spectrum oils for our customer’s peace of mind. 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 because you take a certain amount of oil, does not mean your 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) and Virgin Olive Oil.
hōlus formulates everything 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 our body can use right away. Long chain fatty acids must be broken down before our body can utilize them.
Not only does MCT oil increase how much oil our bodies use, but it is also extremely healthy. Coconut oil is high in vitamin E, a natural preservative, and has many other health benefits. Virgin olive oil is another carrier oil option.
Take Your CBD With Food: Each one of us has an endocannabinoid system within our central nervous system. Throughout this system we have cannabinoid receptors to help maintain quite a bit of our body’s functions – such as our sleep cycle, pain levels, and most importantly, our homeostasis or resting state. As mentioned previously, it is optimal to put the CBD oil beneath the tongue and hold it there.
If you simply swallow the CBD, it will have to travel through your digestive system where it must be broken down and then absorbed into the liver. Sublingually, it merely seeps into your bloodstream. Additionally, 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.
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 your purpose for taking CBD and if you’re a complete beginner, we have some suggested times for you to get the most out of your 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 A Quick Fix: Many have gone down the road of tincture dosage disappointment, expecting immediate results. When taking your dose solely beneath the tongue, effects may show between 15-45 minutes.
Patience is Key: Good things take time. Additionally, lack of bioavailability may cause you to not feel the effects of CBD as quickly. If you take CBD oil on an empty stomach, there is a low possibility of feeling the effects. Taking CBD with or after a meal increases your body’s ability to receive the CBD.
