Dosing Guide

Taking the Right Dose

Everyone is different. Which means everyone has a different ‘perfect’ dose. However, we can still help you to gauge the right starting point. Never taken CBD? Start small and we can go from there.

Know your weight, know your dose.

Body weight plays a part in how much CBD you need to make you feel better. We recommend 1-5 mg of CBD for every 5kg of body weight. Let's break that down. If you weigh 90kg, then 20mg to 30mg is a good starting point.

Before you dose, take the time to weigh yourself.

Small steps. Small doses.

If your symptoms have a negative impact on everyday life, it might be tempting to go for the higher dose. So if you weigh 90kg and 20mg-30mg is your guideline dose, 30mg is the higher amount. But, if it's your first time using CBD, we recommend that you start with 20mg. Start small.

Using your tincture and dropper.

You’ve worked out how many milligrams of CBD you need based on your weight. Now you need to know how many drops of CBD you need from your tincture and dropper.

Sounds like it could be complicated but don’t worry. It’s not. We’ve done the maths for you.

Step 1: How much CBD is in each dropper?
Our droppers hold 1ml of CBD Oil. That’s the starting point.

Step 2: What’s the total amount of CBD in the bottle?
We sell CBD Oil in 300mg, 500mg, 1000mg and 1500mg in 10ml bottles.
We also sell CBD Oil in 900mg, 1500mg, 3000mg and 4500mg in 30ml bottles.

Step 3: How many millilitres in a bottle? (Total Milliliters Bottle)
Phocus sell CBD oil in either 10ml or 30ml bottles

Step 4: Now for the CBD equation
Just use this:
[Total CBD in Bottle] ÷ [Number of Milliliters in Bottle] = MGs of CBD in a Dropper

Need an example? No problem. Let’s say you buy a 10ml bottle of Full Spectrum CBD oil, which contains 300mg of CBD.

All you need to do is - 300mg ÷ 10ml = 30mg CBD per dropper

Now you need to consider your weight:
If you weigh 90kg, and 20mg to 30mg is your recommended dosage, then you may want to use just over half a dropper to get 20mg of CBD.

For Phocus, we’ve completed the calculations for you:
3% - 30mg of CBD per dropper
5% - 50mg of CBD per dropper
10% - 100mg of CBD per dropper
15% - 150mg per dropper 

How often should I take CBD?

CBD can be taken up to 4 times a day. But that doesn’t mean you have to. Some people take it once when they wake up. Others take it before bed. You might take more when you’re having a bad day. It’s completely up to you. Take the dose that’s right for you at the times you need it most.
