Table Of Contents


Thousands of people use CBD to treat ailments and issues every day, but it’s crucial to know your optimal concentration to get the best results. In this article, we explain how to choose the right strength CBD oil for you – and this all depends on what you’re using CBD oil for. 

So without further ado, let’s find the CBD oil best suited to your needs.

CBD oil strength explained

CBD oil potencies can range anywhere from 100mg to upwards of 5,000mg for a single 30 ml bottle – the standard industry size.

CBD E-liquid strength

CBD E Liquids can range anywhere from 50mg up to 1200mg in a single bottle and are available in a range of sizes from 10ml – 60ml.

A 300 mg bottle is generally regarded as a low potency option and based solely on cost, it’s the CBD strength many people start on.

A 100mg CBD e-liquid is regarded as a medium-strength to vape when in a 10ml bottle. Most people start around the 100mg – 300mg range when vaping CBD from a 10ml bottle.

Starting on a low potency CBD product

Because everyone’s biochemistry is different, people react in different ways to different CBD potencies and products. Each consumption method results in different amounts of CBD reaching your bloodstream and endocannabinoid system, but vaping CBD e-liquid is by far the most effective.

Starting on a low potency product lets you gauge how your body reacts to CBD and what concentration to take to achieve optimal results. For example, if you’re seeking pain relief but take a high-grade 3,000mg straight away, it’ll be tricky to determine your ideal dose – even if it works like a charm.

Therefore, starting with a low-strength oil and upping your dose as required will help you ascertain the best quantity for your needs – and may save you money in the process.

For reference, doses typically range anywhere from 5 mg to 70 mg in a single day.

The following section outlines the potencies of our CBD oil and e-liquid products and describes what most people use them for:

Low potency CBD oils

CBD Gold Drops 3% by ECS CBD

This relatively low-potency oil is ideal if you’re new to CBD or sensitive to the compound. A 250mg bottle is an excellent option to take as a daily supplement, with many people doing so to reduce stress and boost their overall health.

ECS Essentials 5.0% CBD Oil – 500mg CBD

Our 500mg CBD oil is a low-strength option for people who find they have to take large or multiple doses of a lower potency oil. Again, people use products in this strength range for an overall health boost and stress reduction.

Mid-potency CBD oils

ECS Essentials 10% CBD Oil – 1000mg CBD & ECS Gold Drops 6% CBD Oil – 1,500mg CBD 

Our mid-potency oils (1000-1,500mg CBD) are perfect for people who find they have to take large or multiple doses of a lower potency oil. Generally, people use products in this strength range for things like anxiety and day-to-day pain.

Our strongest CBD oil

Our 3,000 mg CBD oil tops the potency scale and is commonly used for sleep issues, deep muscle soreness, migraines, and day-to-day stress and anxiety.

Mid-potency CBD e liquids

Canavape 10ml & 20ml flavoured CBD E Liquids with CBG

These are mid-strength CBD e-liquids that all contain CBG (Cannabigerol) and are ideal if you are looking for a place to start.

A 10ml bottle contains 220mg made up of 200mg CBD and 20mg CBG, and the 20ml simply contains double: 400mg CBD and 40mg CBG. This equates to 2.2% when converted to a percentage. 

Many people start with flavoured CBD e-liquids at this concentration to see if they ease the day’s stresses and strains. 

Terpene infused & full spectrum e-liquids

Canavape Complete 30ml

These are an effective e-liquid formulation designed to be the closest to a full spectrum oil vape as you can legally get. A 30ml bottle contains 660mg made up of 600mg CBD and 60mg CBG. Terpenes are used to flavour the product, which you can learn all about here.

Many people choose Canavape Complete due to its pronounced effects caused by multiple cannabinoids and terpenes, otherwise known as “a broad spectrum”. Terpenes alone offer a host of known natural benefits, such as anti-anxiety properties and sleep-inducing effects.

Our Canavape Complete offers a unique CBD oil vaping experience across six cannabis strain profiles, all of which produce different effects, from relaxed and euphoric to energised and focused

High strength CBD oil vape additives

Canavape High Strength Additives

These are concentrates designed for adding to other CBD e liquids or compatible products.

CBD oil additives are available in a range of cannabinoids and high strengths: 600mg right up to 1200mg in a 10ml bottle, enabling people to tailor their products according to their needs. 

For example, many DIY e-liquid mixers blend their CBD oil or vape liquid with CBG and other cannabinoids, turning a 50:50 e-liquid into a Canavape-powered vape. 

CBD dosage for anxiety and other conditions

Many people use CBD to alleviate anxiety, with recent research suggesting 300 to 600mg is the ideal dose. Below are some CBD dosages recently used in empirical research to treat the following conditions: 

What strength CBD oil should I use?

The primary consideration when choosing CBD oil is to realise that everyone has different biochemistry, and what works for one may not necessarily work for another.

While your friend may ease his stress with a single 3mg serving, you may require several times that to achieve the same results. Therefore, it’s best to start with a small amount and work your way up to determine your ideal dose.

Choosing the right type of CBD product is also essential. Do you need a CBD E-Liquid offering almost instant onset that’s typically longer-lasting, or are you a daily supplement fanatic who doesn’t want to vape but take CBD oil instead? 

The answers to these questions, coupled with our tips, will help you determine what strength CBD oil is right for you.
