The Truth Behind CBD Potency

Not all CBD products are created equally. When it comes to our best selling products, CBD oil tinctures lead the pack. Each CBD oil tincture is composed primarily of carrier oil and cannabinoids. For full spectrum products, this includes the naturally occurring THC found in hemp, while in broad spectrum products, the THC content is removed through an additional process. Potency in CBD oil products depends on how they are formulated. While it may seem intuitive to check the volume of a product and base potency solely based on that, the most important thing to look at is the milligrams of CBD. If it seems confusing, hear us out. Imagine that you’re comparing a 4 ounce, 1000 mg CBD oil with a 2 ounce, 1000 mg CBD oil. As consumers, we typically tend to look for the most significant size, best value, and most bang for our buck. The 4 ounce, 1000 mg CBD product seems more potent and a better value based on its size, right? Nope. The two products actually contain the same milligrams of CBD. In fact, one dropper of the 4 ounces, 1000 mg tincture would be half as potent as the 2 ounces, 1000 mg tincture.

Flexible Servings Are Key To Your Routine

A CBD oil product gives you a lot of flexibility, and part of that comes down to understanding how many milligrams of CBD are in each full dropper of your product. Our CBD oils are all 2 ounces but come in 1000 mg and 2000 mg varieties. This means that a full dropper of our 1000 mg CBD oils contains approximately 17.5 mg CBD, while a full dropper of our 2000 mg CBD oils contains approximately 34 mg CBD. By having equal volume but a doubled CBD concentration, our 2000 mg products are twice as potent as our 1000 mg products. If you’re ever unsure, we make lab reports available for all of our products to give you peace of mind. Each time you purchase an Onyx + Rose product, you get access to the lab report that accompanies that product.

Consistency Is Everything

Our product offerings go beyond CBD oils, and for a good reason. While some people prefer the flexible servings that a tincture can offer, others are looking for consistency. We believe that your CBD regimen is most likely to work well when it fits your lifestyle in a way that allows you to be as consistent as possible. If you’re looking for consistent CBD wellness to add to your daily routine, our Bright Side Capsules could be an excellent fit for you. Each capsule contains 25 mg of broad spectrum CBD. Wondering how you can double up on your intake? Simply take two if you feel like you need to up your intake. If you’re a fan of our pet products for your furry best friend, the same rule of thumb to those products as we’ve highlighted above. Tinctures (such as Paws a Moment) offer flexibility, and the potency should be evaluated based on the overall CBD content. Orally ingested products such as Slow Your Wag dog treats provide a consistent amount of CBD that you can always give more or less of based on your needs.

Starting off Strong? Think Again

If you’re looking to begin your wellness journey but aren’t sure where to start, you’re in the right place. It might be tempting to jump into a routine with a higher potency formulation,  but you might be doing yourself a disservice by doing so. We recommend starting slowly, taking time to gauge how your body reacts and adjusts, and slowly increasing or decreasing your CBD intake until you feel your desired effects. Scientists believe that each person has unique factors such as biochemistry, weight, and metabolism that can impact how your body responds to a CBD wellness product. Although a high potency formulation may work well for you right off the bat, you won’t know if you could have achieved the same effects by taking less unless you start small and work your way up.
