CBD Oil Dosage Calculator
Whether you are trying to get more sleep, pain relief, or anxiety relief, CBD oil can help you. The only question is, how much CBD oil should I take? The right dose of CBD is different for everyone depending on their weight and the strength of the oil they’re using. And that’s why we created this handy CBD oil dosage calculator!
We all are looking for the perfect solution to our health issues. Whenever you start taking some supplemental drugs, what matters the most is the optimal dosage. The dosage alone has the potential to make or break the whole game. The same is the case with your CBD oil.
Many people get confused when calculating the correct CBD dosage, but getting confused is not an option for us. With our CBD dosage calculator, you enter your body weight and the potency (in mg) of your tincture, and it does the math for you so that you don’t have to worry about figuring out what dose is right for you!
CBD Oil Dosing: Steps To Follow To Figure Out Your Dose
The simplest approach to figuring out your optimal CBD oil dose is to use the CBD Oil Dosage Calculator above to determine your “mild strength” dose for your weight. Start with a low dose and gradually increase it each day until you experience relief from symptoms or receive negative effects. In case, you experience any adverse reactions, reduce next dose to the previous amount that did not cause any negative effects. If you’ve never used CBD oil before, don’t start with a high dosage.
Want to be more precise with your CBD oil dosages,? Follow these step by step guidelines:
1st Step: Determine Your Optimal CBD Oil Dose
The first step is to figure out the optimum starting dose of CBD oil. We will determine this based on your body weight.
According to Weight and Strength, here’s the general rule of thumb for CBD dosing:
|Cannabidiol (CBD)||Total Body Weight|
|Dosage/10 lbs||Desired Strength||100 lbs||150 lbs||200 lbs||250 lbs||300 lbs|
|1 mg||mild||10 mg||15 mg||20 mg||25 mg||30 mg|
|2 mg||20 mg||30 mg||40 mg||50 mg||60 mg|
|3 mg||moderate||30 mg||45 mg||60 mg||75 mg||90 mg|
|4 mg||40 mg||60 mg||80 mg||100 mg||120 mg|
|5 mg||high||50 mg||75 mg||100 mg||125 mg||150 mg|
|6 mg||60 mg||90 mg||120 mg||150 mg||180 mg|
The typical dosage is 1–6 mg CBD per 10 pounds of body weight. For example, a good place to start would be 15 mg CBD per day, assuming you weigh about 150 pounds. The chart above can be used as a reference for how much to start with.

Do not start with the higher potency CBD dosage recommendation. Start low and increase the amount as needed depending on how you feel.
How Our CBD Dosage Calculator Work
The CBD oil dosage calculator on our site can help you determine what dose is appropriate for you. This calculation is based on your body weight and desired strength , which are essential elements to consider when choosing a proper dosage. It is important to note that these recommended doses are mere approximations.
[Your Body Weight (lbs) X Desired Strength 1-6 (mg)] ÷ 10 (lbs) = Your Daily Dose of CBD in mg.
[Your Body Weight (kg) X Desired Strength 1-6 (mg)] ÷ 4.54 (kg) = Your Daily Dose of CBD in mg.
How much CBD oil does contain this much CBD? The next step is to calculate how much CBD oil you will need to get your daily dose of CBD.
2nd Step: Calculate The Strength Of Your CBD Oil
The amount of oil you’ll need to reach the optimum dosage is determined in part by its strength.
For example, a high-strength CBD oil with 1500 mg of CBD per ounce will take 3 times less oil to administer the same amount of CBD as a low-potency oil with just 500 mg per ounce.
Some manufacturers do print this information on the label of the tincture bottle or you may find the CBD concentration per 1 ml serving size on the products description page of their website. However, if not readily available on the product label, we can easily calculate the CBD potency of your CBD tincture drops.
We Just Need 2 Pieces Of Information:
- The size of your CBD tincture bottle (typically ranges from 15ml to 60ml)
- The total amount of CBD mentioned in the bottle’s label (500mg/1000mg/3500mg/so on)
[Total amount of CBD in mg] ÷ [Net Content of the Bottle in ml] = Amount of CBD per 1ml serving size.
MEDOSI offers 3 different CBD oil tincture drops with CBD potency of 500mg, 1000mg, and 3500mg. All of them come in a 30ml size bottle. So we can easily calculate CBD concentration per ml serving size simply by dividing the net amount of CBD in the bottle with bottle size.
MEDOSI CBD Tincture Drops (500mg) delivers [500mg ÷ 30ml] = 16.67 mg CBD/ml ≈ 17 mg CBD per 1 ml serving
MEDOSI CBD Tincture Drops (1000mg) delivers [1000mg ÷ 30ml] = 33.33 mg CBD/ml ≈ 33 mg CBD per 1 ml serving
MEDOSI CBD Tincture Drops (3500mg) delivers [3500mg ÷ 30ml] = 116.67 mg CBD/ml ≈ 116 mg CBD per 1 ml serving
Typical CBD Oil Potencies Reference Table:
|CBD Oil (Potency)|
|15 ml||33 mg/ml||66 mg/ml||100 mg/ml||133 mg/ml||233 mg/ml|
|30 ml||17 mg/ml||33 mg/ml||50 mg/ml||67 mg/ml||117 mg/ml|
|60 ml||8 mg/ml||17 mg/ml||25 mg/ml||33 mg/ml||58 mg/ml|
Experts generally consider a CBD oil tincture as a low potency one if it delivers 15 mg CBD or less per 1 ml serving. While a product with a CBD concentration of 15-49 mg/mL is categorized as regular potency. If CBD potency is 50 mg/mL or more we can filter the CBD tincture as a high-potency one. To achieve the same dosage level, you’ll need to consume more low-potency CBD oil tincture drops than the high ones.
3rd Step: Convert Your Daily Dose Of CBD To Number Of Drops
Although optional, we can simply convert your CBD dosage (in mg) to (no. of tincture drops) if doing so makes more sense. Drop counts you need to administer the dose depend on the potency of your CBD oil.
Drop count dosage will come in handy while using high-strength CBD oils. Even small variations in dosage can make a significant difference in the application of pets and children. CBD dosage in a number of drops can give you a precise idea about how much CBD you are administering.
Dropper size varies from brand to brand. You have to figure out the number of drops your dropper dispenses per milliliter. Droppers from major CBD oil tincture brands typically dispense between 20-40 drops for every 1 mL of oil — so we can find the dose (mg) per drop simply by dividing the CBD oil potency (mg/ml) by the total number of drops in 1 ml.
How To Calculate?
[Your CBD oil’s Potency (mg/ml)] ÷ [No. of drops dispensed by 1ml oil] = CBD (mg/drop)
Say your CBD oil tincture comes with a bottle size of 30ml with total CBD concentration of 1000mg. So from the above reference table we know this CBD oil deliver 33mg of CBD per 1 ml servings. Now, you figured out 30 drop counts when you dispensed 1ml oil using the dropper it came with. We can use these information to calculate CBD potency in 1 drop count.
[33 mg/ml] ÷  = 1.1 mg CBD per Drop
Divide this number with your daily recommended dose of CBD (use CBD oil dosage calculator or weight/desired-strength table-chart to calculate)
and you will find your dose in number of drops.
[Daily Dose of CBD in mg] ÷ [ CBD Potency (mg/drop)] = Number of drops required to fulfill your dose
Assume your weight is 200 lbs and you want to have moderate effects of CBD. Using the CBD Oil Dosage Calculator or the Weight vs Desired Strength chart above, you figured out your daily recommended dose of CBD is 60mg.
So you need to start with
[60mg] ÷ [ 1.1 (mg/drop)] = 54.54 ≈ 55 drops of CBD oil every day.
Finding Your Optimal Dose Is Crucially Important
New users frequently don’t take the time to figure out their ideal CBD dosage and instead declare that CBD oil isn’t effective.
The most common mistake made by inexperienced CBD oil users is to take either a low or excessive dose. However, you can figure out your optimal dose of CBD oil with the help of our CBD oil dosage calculator above.
CBD, like many other cannabinoids, has an unusual link between dosage and desired response.
Administering a higher amount of any substances will typically result in more intense therapeutic effects as well as a higher risk of adverse effects. But for Cannabidiol (CBD), the pattern of beneficial response, when compared with a higher dosage, doesn’t follow the rule.
The graph above showcases CBD dosage levels vs expected benefits. From the bell-curve pattern of the graph, you can easily realize, you may get little to no benefits with a dose that is too high or too low. And the only way you can secure those sweet spots of benefits is by figuring out your optimal dose of CBD oil.

How to Calculate the Right CBD Dosage for Dogs
Many people have seen the benefits of CBD for dogs for overall pet health and wellness, and we’re sure your four-legged fur baby is going to love you even more for the purchase. You may be wondering what the correct mg of CBD oil dosage for pets looks like. The first step in determining the correct optimal dosage in mg CBD is to check out our handy little calculator above. It’s pretty simple: in just three steps you’ll know the perfect dose, as well as what CBD products we recommend for your dogs and cats.
- The first step is to select what type of pet you are looking for.
- The second step is to select your pets body weight in lbs.
- Last, but not least is to select what level of dosage you wish to give your pet (Minimum optimal dose – Maximum optimal dose)
As you can see in the final bullet point, calculating and measuring out the amount of CBD dosage for dogs can be trickier if they are a bit on the larger side of the scale. What’s nice about dosing CBD oil is you have a safe and wide range of mg of CBD that you can give your dog based on their symptoms, so even if your pup has put on some weight since his last visit to the veterinarian, as long as you don’t exceed the maximum daily dose you’ll be good. To determine the maximum daily CBD dosage for dogs, we use a limit of 5 mg CBD/kg or 5 mg per 2.2 lbs. We increase this recommended maximum only when new studies emerge supporting higher doses. Please talk to your veterinarian about doses higher than 5 mg of CBD per kg of body weight.
Figuring out the right dosage for dogs will largely be up to you, as the owner. You know your pet best and what to give your dog. Make sure to keep an eye on him for a few hours after you first administer CBD oil; pay attention to the effects it has so you know how to adjust the dose to maximize the benefits. Besides just showing you the minimum, average, and maximum dose, our CBD dosage calculator will tell you roughly how many drops your CBD oil bottle contains, the concentration of your CBD oil bottle, and the concentration of the CBD itself. Our CBD dosage calculator is a handy little tool that helps you calculate the correct CBD dosage based on your dog’s weight. It makes your life easier without wondering if you gave a strong dose and your dog might have a rough day. This tool will give you confidence that you are helping your dog reach the optimal CBD dose!
Using the Detailed CBD Dosage Chart for Dogs and Cats
First find the CBD Dosage Chart specific to the product and variant that you will be administering to your pet for example. PurCBD (Product) & 125mg (variant). From there decide on what strength of dosage you want to give your pet: Minimum, Average, Medium, Strong or Maximum. If not sure rule of thumb would be to start with the minimum.
- The Minimum dose is calculated based on 0.05mg/kg
- The Average dose is calculated based on 0.45mg/kg
- The Strong dose is calculated based on 1.25mg/kg
- The Maximum daily dose is calculated based on 5.00mg/kg
Find your pet’s weight on the left hand side of the chart and follow the grid to the right until you reach the desired strength you have decided on. When you arrive to the correct block it will give you the suggested drops to administer your pet every 6-8 hours (Note that ½ of the dropper is equivalent to 16 drops). If your suggested dosage requires a larger amount of CBD oil and says to use another optimal dose CBD, then find the respected dosing chart for that mg of CBD and start off with the minimum dosage for your pet’s body weight.
Dosing CBD oil doesn’t have to be confusing. In fact, some of the best advice we can offer is to monitor your pet’s reaction of how much CBD oil is given and to make adjustments accordingly. Unlike many drugs, there is little to worry about when increasing to a strong dose to a strong dose. Some pets react well to low doses of CBD, while others need a good bit more. We always recommend watching for side effects or abnormalities whenever changing dosages for dogs and cats, but if you see your pet reacting well to a stronger dose, there is nothing to be concerned about.
Finding The Right CBD Product For Your Pet
Finding the right CBD product for your dog or cat involves a lot more than just dosage. It will depend on your pet’s weight, what their preferences are, what they are being treated for, and other factors specific to your pet. In order to find the right CBD product for your pet, you’ll need to take all of this into consideration to factor in what give your dog.
In general, as long as you’re using sage, organic hemp CBD, you can’t go wrong. You do need to make sure though that you are purchasing CBD that was intended for animal use and not simply giving your pet CBD intended for people. Humans and animals – while both able to benefit from CBD – do not have the same kinds of tolerances to the mg of CBD.
This is especially true when looking at CBD that was harvested from marijuana rather than hemp. Marijuana has THC in it, which is toxic to dogs and cats. Giving your pet irresponsibly sourced CBD products can have dire consequences.
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Calculating CBD Oil Dosage for Specific Medical Conditions?
These are some of the most frequently asked questions we get, and we have an easy answer for you. CBD oil dosage isn’t as set in stone for specific ailments. CBD is used to balance the body to homeostasis so it will in effect, do it’s work to help the body work to heal itself. Each condition that CBD has shown to have benefits for are usually systemic in nature so the goal of CBD is to bring the system back into homeostasis or “balance”.
How many MG of CBD For Anxiety, Epilepsy or Cancer?
Unfortunately the Food and Drug Administration does not allow us to recommend specific doses based on specific medical conditions. For additional help in managing your pets specific medical condition – whether with CBD or not – we recommend that you check out our blog section. Its complete with full of research and helpful tips on the best ways to help your pet with their unique medical conditions.
What Happens If I Give My Dog Too Much CBD Oil?
If you give your pet too much CBD oil, you may notice that it makes them tired — where a lower CBD oil dosage may have given them a boost in their step. If you notice this side effect, there is little to nothing to worry about.
In fact, some pet owners purposely give their pets high doses of CBD oil to help with insomnia. Common side effects such as nausea or diarrhea may happen, but they are fairly rare and mild. With digestive issues, it’s usually the hemp oil carrier that causes the stomach irritation rather than the CBD.
Cytochrome P450 Enzymes
The one side effect of concern with high doses of CBD oil is its affinity to temporarily inhibit enzymes that metabolize drugs in the liver — grapefruit does this as well.
As such, if your pet is on a dosage-sensitive prescription drug that’s metabolized in the liver, you’ll likely want to keep CBD dosages mild or low.
Your veterinarian will be able to help you monitor your pet to ensure that hemp CBD oil interaction with the other drug is positive. With digestive issues, it’s usually the hemp oil carrier that causes the stomach irritation rather than the CBD.
In many cases, a specific CBD dosage has led to a decrease in the other drug’s dosage with no increase of side effects. In effect , pet owners have been known to stop the prescription drugs all together and just give their pet CBD. This is all at the discretion of you , the owner and what you choose to give your dog.
Our CBD dosage calculator and dosage chart will help you find the correct low and mild dosage based on your pet’s body weight, and we absolutely recommend talking to your veterinarian first before doing this on your own.
What’s Better For CBD Dosage: CBD Oil, Treats, Capsules, etc?
If you’re looking for precise dose of CBD, our PurCBD+ oil/tincture is still your best option as capsules and treats will carry a one-size-fits-all dose.
However, this is not much of a concern as even extremely large doses are well tolerated by most pets with no signs of side effects. This only will happen on special circumstances, but it happens often.
Another pro of CBD oil is it’s fast absorption rate. When administered under the tongue it enters straight into the blood stream.
Besides those two factors, there are only a few minor differences amongst CBD products, which you can read more about below.
How to Dose with CBD Capsules, Treats, Chews, and Pellets
CBD Capsules for Dogs
Our Hemp CBD Gold Capsules contain 5 mg of CBD and 25mg of CBD per capsule each making them great for dogs 40 lbs and up. At this body weight level, most pet owners find raising the dosage in increments of 5 mg of CBD is effective and easily managed.
Like all other forms of CBD, capsules typically provide relief of symptoms for 6-8 hours. In that time, you can administer more CBD if needed. Unlike the oil/tincture, capsules have to pass through the digestive system before it’s absorbed into the bloodstream so expect 30-60 minutes before you see CBD effects set in.
If they need a quicker onset of relief, we recommend the CBD hemp oil tincutre PurCBD+. The thin tissue of the mouth makes CBD readily absorbable into the bloodstream, and you’ll typically see CBD working within 10-30 minutes depending on how long your pet was able to hold the oil in their mouth.
CBD Dog Treats & CBD Soft Chews
Our Hemp CBD dog treats and Hemp CBD soft chews are 5 mg of CBD per treat and ranging from 1mg of CBD to 2.5mg of CBD per chew depending on which specific chew you choose. Making the treats and chews fantastic for most dogs as you are able to break them in half for very small breeds. Our Soft Chews are great for small pets under 20 lbs and older dogs that have trouble chewing harder treats or any dog with dental issues.
It’s surprisingly difficult to find dose-appropriate treats for small pets, so we knew we had to change that. That is a major reason why we have specific chews for mobility, skin & coat, multi-vitamin and calming each with their own mg CBD to accommodate dogs and pets of all sizes.
Like the CBD capsules, treats will have to pass through the digestive tract before the body can absorb it so expect the onset of effects to begin within 30-60 minutes. Feel free to break the treats in half for around half the regular dose if needed. For smaller dogs this will also need to be done as they can only handle a certain mg of CBD per lb, especially those under 10 pounds. Unfortunately it is easy to give the very small toy breeds too much CBD.
CBD Dosage for Horses
Equine Hemp Pellets
While catered to riders, farriers, trainers, and large-animal veterinarians, we designed our CBD Hemp Pellets in a way that makes them perfect for all animals that consume food in pellet form. Within the process of making CBD we have created a pellet using the plant bi-product which still carries all cannabinoids from the hemp plant and we are able to use all our resources while limiting the waste.
Instead of making a large one-size-fits-all pellet we broke up the large dose into mini-pellets. This allows goats, sheep, and even pocket pets like rabbits to benefit from taking hemp CBD.
Here is the guideline to follow when giving Equine Hemp Pellets to your horse. 1 tablespoon equals 25 mg of CBD. Remember this is just a guideline and starting point. You will still need to trial and error with your horse or livestock as some only need a small amount of CBD while other larger animals may need a strong dose.
Your average CBD capsule formulated for humans is around 10-15 mg, and that’s what we recommend a miniature horse with a body weight of 350 lbs. Please note, this number is an example and is not intended to diagnose, treat , cure or mitigate for your mini horse.
If administering to a much smaller animal, you’ll want to check out the charts “Generic Hemp Equine Pellets Dosage Guide” and “Hemp CBD Tier Dosage Guidelines”.

All in all, giving your pet too much CBD will just likely result in you wasting money. This often limits small pet owners to the tincture form, but at Innovet Pet, we were determined to not have that happen to you.
That’s why we provide Soft Hemp Chews that are appropriately dosed for small pets and easy on their smaller jaws. We even have farm animals and pocket pets covered with our Hemp Pellets.
