High CBD Oil
High CBD oil concentration refers to the ratio of CBD volume to the volume of the total product. On the international market you can find hemp oil with different CBD concentrations, so although many of these brands contain CBD, they may not have a high percentage of CBD.
Endoca produces CBD oil that ranges from normal strength in the form of Hemp Oil Drops containing 300 mg CBD per bottle to high CBD concentrations in Hemp Oil Paste that contains 3000 mg per tube. What concentration you choose depends on how much CBD you want to take, and that determines your choice of product.

A simple way to understand percentages
As an example, I will use Endoca 20% decarboxylated paste. The tube contain 10 grams of paste (10.000mg), 20% of this is the content of CBD in the 10 grams tube.
1 gram = 1000mg
1000mg x 10 = 10,000mg
10 gram = 10,000mg
20% of 10,000 = 2,000mg
Each tube of 20% CBD paste contains 2,000mg CBD
If a high CBD oil is 30% CBD, what does the other 60% consist of?
Our CBD oils contain different phyto-cannabinoids: most CBD/CBDa products also contain low concentrations of CBC, CBG, CBN; terpenes and other natural molecules (for more details you can read the ingredients on our web site). Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components, so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
How many mg to consume?
Concentrations vary between preparations, ranging from 1 mg per dose to hundreds of milligrams. This makes it easy for consumers to get the dosages they need in a form they find easy to use. It’s important to remember that If you purchase high CBD oil, the quantity of CBD in milligrams per gram of product is higher, so to get the same dose as you would have got using a lower-concentration product, you will take less CBD oil. Some people calculate their dose by using their weight in kilograms multiplied by 0.5 mg to determine their daily dose. However, this calculation, though simple, is flawed since it does not take certain variables into account. For instance, the metabolism of the person may play a role in how CBD effects the body.
Individuals are different and so are their needs. The traditional up-titration step up approach is appropriate when consuming high CBD oil. In this way, every individual can find and optimize the right amount of hemp product for their needs. Luckily there seems to be no involved in a CBD overdose. Some studies (1) claim that there is no documented risk at extremely high CBD oil dosages – even at rates as high as 1,500mg a day. However, taking more than you need is certainly wasteful, so it is better to determine the most effective serving by beginning with a low dose and gradually increasing it until the desired results are obtained.
