How many drops of CBD oil should I take? This is one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to CBD. There are no uniform dosage recommendations for the natural ingredient of the hemp plant. Helpful guidelines for orientation are provided by studies and empirical values. We have summarized these for you.

CBD dosage: drop by drop to more well-being.

More and more studies indicate that CBD can be used as a natural support for a variety of problems due to its special characteristics. Particularly popular is the use of the cannabinoid to promote the quality of falling asleep and sleeping through the night, against stress, to regulate negative sensory perceptions, and support the general well-being in everyday life. In order to achieve the desired effects, the correct dosage plays a decisive role. However, this is not so easy to find.

Why is it so difficult to make uniform recommendations?
Similar to glasses and diopters, it is also with CBD oil and the number of drops: It must be individually adjusted to the person and can change over time. Different factors influence whether and how CBD interacts with the organism:

  • Bodyweight
  • Metabolism
  • Lifestyle
  • Medication
  • Health condition
  • Sensitivity

Since these factors vary greatly depending on the person, gender and genetics, it is often difficult to make uniform recommendations. The right dosage is therefore in the hands of the individual. However, thanks to some orientation points and tips, it can be found quickly.

How much CBD oil should I take daily?

Based on study results, general dosage recommendations can be made. These are divided into micro, standard, and macro dosages. The recommendations assume high-quality CBD products with excellent bioavailability. The higher the bioavailability, the more of a substance the body can absorb.


So-called microdoses are considered low CBD levels in the range of 0.5-20 mg CBD per daily dose. They are primarily suitable for trial and error, making them ideal for getting started. Microdoses are used for a variety of wellness-related issues.

Standard dosages

Standard dosages range from 10-100 mg of CBD per daily dose. They prove useful for certain physical and psychological issues.

Macro dosages

Macro dosages are in the particularly high range between 50-800 mg of CBD per daily dose. These dosages are very rarely used.

The right approach to dosage determination

  • Decide on a starting dosage in the micro, standard or macro range
  • Find out how much CBD is contained in one drop/capsule
  • Calculate the number of drops that matches the starting dosage
  • Choose a suitable time of intake
  • Approach your individual dosage step by step
  • Be patient and show perseverance

Decide on an initial dosage suitable for your topic

Choose a suitable initial dosage in the micro, standard, or macro range at the beginning.

What to do if I don’t know in which range to start?

For those who are unclear about deciding between dosage ranges, you can also use the consumption recommendations provided on the product as a guide. These are perfect for beginners and should make it easier to get started. They are mostly in the micro-dose range and are good middle ground.
