CBD Strengths: What Do They Mean?


If you are new to the world of CBD, you might find the different strengths of CBD oil and pastes quite confusing. At Inspired Life CBD, we offer a range of strengths from 250mg/2.5% to 3000mg/30%, and the percentage amount on the product label indicates the CBD concentration.

To explain further, let’s take an example of a 10ml bottle that has 1000mg of cannabinoids/CBD. This will have a CBD concentration of 10%. It means that every drop contains 10% pure CBD, while the rest is a carrier oil. Similarly, a 20ml bottle that has a 5% CBD concentration is half as strong as the 10ml bottle with the same content, despite containing the same 1000mg amount of cannabinoids.

The price of CBD oil or paste is also often an indicator of its strength. More potent CBD products are usually more expensive.

However, the effects of CBD timing can depend on several factors, such as body weight, the method of ingestion (edible, smoking, oil), and whether you have a full or empty stomach. Typically, it can take between 1-6 hours to experience a therapeutic effect of CBD, such as body relaxation. But when vaping CBD, you can experience its effects in as little as 5-20 minutes.

In conclusion, it’s essential to choose a CBD strength that suits your needs and start with a lower concentration if you are new to CBD. Gradually increase the dosage as required to find the right strength for you. At Inspired Life CBD, we offer a variety of strengths to meet your individual needs.
