The number of people using CBD continues to grow at an exceptional rate, it's now everywhere...  in the news, magazines, books and the topic of many conversations, in fact there are now around 1.6 million people in the UK taking CBD on a regular, daily basis.

But with so much conflicting information out there, where do you start?

Always keep in mind that the key to getting it just right is patience and consistency, to start with it's all about trial and error but once you find your sweet spot that's where you stay and once you're there, you will love CBD oil just as much as the 1.6 million UK CBD users.




The following information is a guide only as there is no guidance, rules or dosing instructions set for taking CBD supplements as yet in the UK. It is simply about finding what works for you. This is called your 'sweet spot'.

When it comes to how much CBD to take, it really depends on the individual taking it - there is no right or wrong way and there is no one-size-fits-all - it's a personal and individual journey which varies from person to person.

Everyone's experience with CBD is different, so what works for your friend may not be the same for you.

It's worth remembering that finding the perfect CBD amount for you requires a bit of experimentation and this doesn't happen overnight!

We recommend to begin with you start by going SLOW and LOW when taking CBD oil, this will allow you to get the amount you need just right. Building up slowly will allow you to monitor and personalise your progress more effectively and accurately until you find what feels best for you.

Then once you have found it, this is where you stay - it may take one week, it may take a few weeks or even days but as we mentioned earlier everyone is different so always keep this in mind.

Consistency is the key... and once you find your CBD rhythm you must keep it consistent by taking it regularly every day.

Taking a drop here or there in order to help support and maintain your overall health and well-being will mean you are wasting your time and money. 

But, you can rest assure that once you've found your sweet spot it is worth every single penny spent on your selfcare.

To help you calculate the amount (mg) of CBD you'll be taking, lets break it down so its easier to understand exactly how much CBD you're taking. 

When we talk about the strength or concentration of CBD, we’re referring to how many milligrams of CBD a product contains, for example;

  • 1000mg | 10% CBD oil tincture (10ml) = 200 drops (approx)

- 1 Drop = 5mg CBD 

  •  2000mg | 20% CBD oil tincture (10ml) = 200 drops (approx) 

- 1 Drop = 10mg CBD

As the milligrams of CBD increases, so too does the potency.


Start with 1 or 2 drops of oil from the pipette (provided), drop under the tongue (sublingually), and hold it there for at least 90 seconds before swallowing.

(Please note one drop means literally one droplet - not the whole pipette full!)

Do this 2-3 times per day, start low then gradually increase if necessary by adding more drops after 5-7 days if required.

As we've said already, there are no set dosage guidelines here in the UK, but If you're trying CBD for the first time, we suggest that you divide the recommended serving in half, and build your amount slowly over several days. 

*See our CBD drop chart below for guidance on how to build slowly and successfully.

Allowing time for you to carefully monitor how your body responds, then you can increase or maintain as you prefer.

Even if you're an experienced or regular CBD user, revert to this guide if at any time you decide to change the CBD strength, method or product.

Build slowly and keep a record of how much CBD you're taking and when.

How many times a day you should take CBD, again depends on you the individual. Try splitting your daily amount across two to three evenly spread servings. 

Experiment with your amount and timing until you find a routine that’s easy to stick to, and feels right for you.

CBD oil drops are best when taken sublingually, this simply means dropping the oil under your tongue rather than swallowing your CBD oils and sending it through the digestive system first. This method ensures that the CBD oil gets absorbed directly through your sublingual glands where it can enter your bloodstream quicker. 

It is recommended that the oil drops are held under the tongue for up to 90 seconds to let it soak in and get into circulation much quicker, you can then swallow any excess oil left behind.

Remember it’s not a race or sprint!

Many people think of CBD as an overnight, quick fix solution and this can often lead to a lot of them losing interest and thinking it's not for them leading to them giving up before even really getting started!

But its useful to bare in mind that just like most food and vitamin supplements its about a regular, long term lifestyle change in order to maintain and support your health and wellbeing. And in the same way should be taken daily and regularly.

Think of it as starting a new relationship with your health, well-being and your body because you actually have to start listening to it. To begin with the process of starting your CBD journey involves a little effort from you, which we think is a good thing as most of us are guilty of wanting something immediate and in the easiest way possible. 

CBD is all about building your cannabidiol levels - time, adjustment, patience, maintenance are key.

A little patience is all that is required, but once you've tried and tested CBD regularly and consistently following our guide method, we are sure you'll grow to love it just as much as our customers and ourselves do.

Once your CBD journey has become your natural, healthy daily habit you will not look back!

A little tip for you...

If there is a time when the usual amount of CBD you take is no longer as effective, follow this method again by increasing the amount of drops slightly, or reducing in the same way.

Its YOUR Journey - So do what feels right for YOU.

Begin by keeping a CBD diary this way you'll be able to record the number of drops you took, the time of day that you took it, and how it made you feel.

This will make it easier for you to monitor progress. 

You can even store your thoughts and feelings along the way too, this will help clear your mind to regain balance and focus.
