Guide for How Many mg in ml of Full Spectrum CBD

Many consumers that are using CBD Oil are not clear on the measurement factors that pertain to CBD oil, and fnding out how many mg in ml of CBD is in the tincture can get tricky. If you can understand how many mg in ml of CBD is in your tincture then you’ll be able to justify the cost to strength of CBD.

Most CBD oil users will consume CBD oil by using it under the tongue or smoking the CBD. The only differences are that potency in tincture sizes and flowers are different across brands and plants. One of the most frequently asked questions by patients is “How many mg in a ml serving of CBD Oil?” Each bottle or product will have its own directions and mg serving and it’s important to understand how that mg serving translates to a dropper that measures in millilitres.

Why mg in ml of CBD doesn’t match on supplement facts

Most CBD products will have different serving information on the supplement facts due to the hemp extract content. Some brands will provide the exact CBD mg in ml serving size, but other may have different ingredients. In some cases hemp extract also includes CBG, and CBDa which can effect the milligrams to millilitres ratio for CBD extract.

CBD dosage guide: not safe

Currently, CBD products are not yet regulated by the FDA which means no official dosing guidelines have been released for CBD Oil. Most vendors and brands will provide the best practices and the general rules of thumb you can use. CBD dosage guides exist all over the internet, but these should be treated with a grain of salt because no one knows the real guidelines. In this article, we’ll discuss how many mg in a ml so that you can decide the serving size and concentration of CBD content you’d like to use.

Calculating how many mg in a ml of liquid

For any size bottle: Divide the CBD rating weight (example 200mg [200]) by the size of the container (example 10ml bottle [10]), the answer is the CBD concentration strength per ML [20mg CBD per ml].

Here’s a breakdown of the approximate strengths of one of the products we offer:

1500 mg • 30 ml (50mg CBD per mL)

Divide 1500 by 30, and you find there’s 50mg per dropper.

How many mg in a drop of CBD oil?

Each product is different, but it all relies on the how many millilitres (ml) is the bottle and how many total milligrams (mg) of CBD is in the bottle. Once you have this key information then you can calculate how many drops in a ml by considering the following:

1ml = 20 drops (A full dropper)

So, let’s assume you’re using Canniatric Full Spectrum CBD Oil – 1500 MG which is a 30ml bottle and contains 1500mg of CBD.

First, we find out how many mg in a ml by dividing 1500mg of CBD by 30ml

This shows that there is 50 mg of CBD per millilitre or one dropper full.

It may look and sound very confusing, but if you read through this carefully and apply some logic, it might not be as complicated as it seems.

At the end of the day, it’s all about finding the right dosage that works for you.

1 ml of concentrate =/= (does not equal) 1 gram

So this is something that has bothered me for a while. Most retailers of concentrates seem to decide arbitrarily that 1ml as measured in a syringe that the concentrate is sold in is equal to 1 gram of the same.

Now this idea is based on the fact that 1ml of pure water at the right temp/barometry will weigh 1g.

However, being that grams are a measure of mass, whereas mls are a measure of volume, the relationship between the two is not constant for all substances, only water, and only in the right conditions.

I’d really love to get some volunteers that live in places where they can go to a dispensary to buy a 1ml or .5ml syringe (whatever volume really), take note of the volume and squeeze the entire contents onto a scale. Let’s get an idea of what amounts are being passed off as grams because of this oversight on the part of most of the industry

Please do join in and post below if you would like to take part.

I think we should keep these reports consistent, so please identify the nominal mass and volume (how many grams advertised on the label, how many mls in the syringe) and the actual mass (weight in grams/mg) and the state where you bought it. If you like, you can identify the product/dispensary/extract artist, but if you prefer not to disclose this, I understand!

Can’t help but another way would be to make note of the weight at the start and then weigh it again when it’s empty if people don’t want to empty the contents out all at once.

Other way around would be to gently heat concentrate till liquid, then see how much of one gram you can get into a 1ml syringe.

Another really quick way would be to drop some oil in water and see if it floats it sinks. That way you at least know if 1 ml will be more or less in weight then water.

Well I think results may vary depending on what is added to the oil in pre-fills, but I weighed up a little I had around. I don’t have any oil I want to melt atm, but I have exactly .5mil in a syringe of co2 mixed with EJMix at “1:2” ratio. Of course I used the old and obviously inaccurate method in the OP of 1 gram to 2 mils, but for me it’s accurate because that is the mix that people like lol. On to the point, .5mils at this mix weighed .29g. I’m not sure this is helpful, as I think the question was about the oil itself, but at least a baseline.

Not to muddy the waters here but a couple worthwhile notes:

1) Concentrate batch-to-batch is likely to have variation in the weight of 1ml due to a couple of things, one of which is the fact that concentrate is not a single compound, like water. If your concentrate is 60% THC, for sake of conversation, you have to ask what is the other 40%? Wax, terps, solvent, water, crazy moon material? It definitely contributes to the weight and would potentially affect your result sample-to-sample.. can’t speak to how much of an affect it would have, but some I would assume. Which brings me to.

2) Similar comparisons have been brought up in the past IIRC, and the consensus was 1ml concentrate was extremely close to a gram. I could be wrong here, but that’s what I recall at least.

Also, I am in a state that has a medical framework but is still rolling it out. However, I do work at a testing and extraction lab. Any carts or syringes that we are producing are generally not straight concentrate. There’s usually a medium added to facilitate flow. So in that case, that makes the comparison harder unless you have a syringe of un-cut, for lack of a better term.

Lastly, if you really want to get to the bottom of the quality level of your concentrate, I think the most direct way would be to submit a sample somewhere and have it tested. A cannabinoid test for a liquid (if it’s in a syringe, we deal with it as such) at the lab I work for would require .5ml to test, for example.

Just some initial thoughts to consider.

This is great feedback, and illustrates my point. The usual thing I see is what is advertised as a ‘gram’, sold in a syringe filled up to 1ml (which is purported to be equal to a gram, which is because 1ml of pure water in the right conditions weighs 1g). However, what you are expressing here illustrates my point. Given the 1ml to 1g assumption almost across the board that I have seen for syringe concentrates, you should have had .5g of weight in .5ml

In fact, you had almost half that amount. You are spot on to observe that different mixtures of different substances (ie: pure decarbed oil vs mixed with solvents like VG/PG/PEG/ethanol) will end up with a different mass to volume ratio. Different consistencies of extract from the same material will even vary on this.

Thanks for your feedback brother. Nice to hear from someone in the industry!

As we’ve seen above, 1ml would be more like .58g for that particular ejmix/oil solution, for other various kinds of concentrate this will vary as I’m sure you’d agree for the gross volume of a given substance to gross weight of the same. For example: concentrates that have been decarbed and terps added (xtractology specifically have some products like this in Cali that I have heard good things about) will likely vary on this ratio from the above ejmix/oil solution and from fully decarbed oil with nothing mixed in sucked up into the syringe hot off the dish. I expect to see variation across samples here according to many factors that effect the composition of the oil/solution.

My take home message and why I’ve raised this topic is this though:

In my view, if you sell oil and you sell it in syringes, it is not accurate or honest to call 1ml of oil 1g or assert this relationship.

I am talking here about retailers, I have heard of many cases where a retailer directly asserts that the 1ml of whatever mixture/extract/solution in the syringe they are selling weighs 1g gross of the product in question.

I do appreciate as you say that in some cases, where the 1g reference is to net actives rather than gross mixture (such as solvents/carriers to liquify and make the whole syringe part of the equation practical), there will be variation and that this can still be a version of 1ml = 1g that we can consider accurate. This is not the kind of claim being taking to task in this thread

There’s nothing wrong with selling 1ml of any given mixture and labeling it 1ml or labelling the weight of actives in the product (when mixed), the problem comes in when you imply or assert that that 1ml of any gross volume of substance represents 1g of gross weight of the same – because this is simply not likely to be true in most cases. Of course, this is not directed at you personally man (you are not a retailer from the sound of it lol), this is a general observation

Thanks for your input though and glad to make your acquaintance as well my friend. You will surely have a wealth of information that we can call upon in future

I actually am going to take part in this experiment myself when I get time, I’ll perform a full decarb on some old material and suck it up warm into a german boro lab syringe that I have to see what results I get on this kind of material. I’d still love to see as many reports as possible, thankyou so much to @GuyLeDuche for contributing so far

I look forward to seeing the results we get!

Again, I believe this to be a industry wide practice so I don’t think anyone should be singling out vendors and giving them flak. I believe this is something that those in relevant jurisdictions should investigate and then can use as a basis to suggest change to the industry

Thanks for the kind words. Likewise friend! I’m certainly no big shot in the industry by any means. But it’s definitely very cool being a part of it, especially from a lab perspective. I may not be able to answer much but always willing to field questions.

Sounds like I was misunderstood, and your issue is with unadulterated oil being sold as 1ml that they claim weighs 1 gram.

I feel as though I read somewhere on this website (perhaps in the canna-cig-juice related threads) that someone confirmed it was close enough for the sake of conversation when they were discussing their PEG / EJMix ratios. If that’s true, yeah I’m sure it is less. It would be interesting to see the results here to determine by how much though.

If I happen to come across any decarbed oil in my stash I’ll see if I can contribute.
