It wasn’t too long ago that a person searching for CBD oil would head to their local smoke shop or vape store — sometimes even a gas station — without giving much thought to what they were getting in their CBD oil. Things were so simple in the early days of CBD.
Lucky for all of us, those times have changed. Today, informed consumers seek premium-quality CBD with high milligram concentrations and dosage ranges backed by scientific research. Maximum potency CBD formulas, as some have started to call them, are the most effective in relieving everyday wellness concerns like stress, anxiety, muscle aches, joint pain, and sleep difficulty.
The Path To Standardized Potency CBD
Technological advancements in the cannabis industry over the years have led to radical developments in extraction methods and purification techniques. Along the way, experts in various fields ranging from agriculture, chemistry, biology, and healthcare helped to shape what was once a fledgling niche market into a massive wellness industry yielding specialized products for nearly all walks of life.
But with so many different products to choose from, finding the strongest CBD oil with the highest concentration of CBD per single dose may get a bit tricky if you don’t know what to look for.
Here’s how to pick the best maximum potency CBD.
A Brief Primer On CBD Dose Potency
First and foremost, your CBD product should have a milligram amount printed somewhere on the front label of the product. This number tells you how much total CBD is inside.
The average potency CBD ranges from 500 mg to 1500 mg per bottle. These products work wonders for most people with generally mild wellness concerns. However, other users need something that packs more punch, so they opt for maximum potency CBD. High-dose CBD comes in concentrations ranging from 5000 mg, 10000 mg up to 12000 mg.
Finding How Much A Dose Of CBD Really Is
How much CBD is in the bottle is only part of the whole picture. What you don’t know yet is how strong your CBD is per dose because that’s where it really counts — how much CBD do you get in each dropperful?
Let’s look at three unique high-potency CBD products and break them all down to find this out.
We’ll start with the strongest USDA-Certified Organic CBD oil made by the Organica Naturals brand.
Product name: 5,000 mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Manufacturer: Organica Naturals CBD
Total CBD per bottle: 5,000 mg of the active ingredient cannabidiol
Bottle size: 30 mL
Single dropperful dose: 167 mg cannabidiol
Organica Naturals CBD is made from organically grown cannabis that is hand-harvested whole, flash-frozen, and extracted using subzero extraction technology to preserve the plant’s chemical fingerprint. It’s billed as “true full spectrum” because it has more minor cannabinoids than your average CBD — up to three times more CBC, CBCA, CBDA, CBDV, CBG, and CBN, with as much as 90% of the terpenes found in the original plant from which it was made.
One dropperful dose from a 30 mL (1 oz.) bottle has 167 milligrams of CBD (5000 mg / 30 doses of 1 mL each). Alternately, that same concentration of CBD in a 60 mL (2 oz) bottle will contain 83 mg of cannabidiol per dropperful (5000 mg / 60 doses of 1 mL each). As you can see, a bottle with double the amount of CBD oil may seem like more at first. But more oil in the bottle doesn’t translate to more CBD in the dropper.
Next, we’ll review the world’s most powerful THC-free isolate blend from Zero High brand.
Product name: 10,000 MG CBD Oil Isolate
Manufacturer: Zero High
Total CBD per bottle: 10,000 mg of the active ingredient cannabidiol
Bottle size: 30 mL
Single dropperful dose: 333 mg cannabidiol
Keeping true to its namesake, Zero High’s pure isolate blends contain CBD and nothing else — not even a hint of THC (0.00%).
Radically purified cannabis products from Zero High brand are made especially for CBD users who value pharmaceutical-grade purity. It’s over 99.7% pure CBD and the perfect choice for users who may experience THC sensitivity or wish to avoid the possibility of testing positive on a drug screening.
One dropperful dose from Zero High 10000 mg CBD oil is loaded with 333 mg of the active ingredient cannabidiol (10000 mg / 30 doses of 1 mL each). Doubling the size of the bottle to 60 mL will half that dose and yield 167 mg CBD per dropper (10000 mg / 60 doses of 1 mL each).
We’ve saved the most powerful single-dose CBD for last with Cannabiva brand true full spectrum CBD.
Product name: 12,000 MG Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Total CBD per bottle: 12,000 mg of the active ingredient cannabidiol
Bottle size: 30 mL
Single dropperful dose: 400 mg cannabidiol
Cannabiva True Full Spectrum CBD Oil is pound-for-pound the strongest CBD oil in the world, with a whopping 12,000 mg CBD per 30 mL (1 oz) bottle. If you’re looking for the maximum therapeutic benefits you can get, you won’t find a stronger CBD oil anywhere. The blend contains minor cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, CBC, and CBL and a minuscule amount of THC (0.3%).
One dropperful dose from a 30 mL (1 oz.) bottle gives you 400 mg CBD (12000 mg / 30 doses of 1 mL each). Alternately, that same concentration of CBD in a 60 mL (2 oz) bottle will contain half the dose at 200 mg of CBD per dropperful (12,000 mg / 60 doses of 1 mL each).
The CBD reviewed in this article is made with standardized dosage amounts (i.e., you always know the bottle contains as much as the label says it does according to lab testing). But not all CBD is created equal. Make sure your CBD oil brand has a specific single dose potency on the front label or in the nutrition facts so you may confirm how much you are actually getting. If this information is not immediately available, you can calculate it yourself by taking the total amount of CBD in the bottle and dividing it by the total number of ounces.
