Decoding The Numbers On Your CBD Gummy Bottle

by Isaiah Simmmons

Buying CBD gummies is quite different from buying any other medication. The regulation of the CBD industry is different, and that results in different labeling than you're probably used to seeing on medications and supplements. Plus, you use CBD differently. Not everyone takes the same dose. 

So, while it is normal to be a bit perplexed the first time you come across a bottle that says "300 mg CBD gummies," the labeling isn't too tough to understand once it's explained to you. And that's exactly what this article will do — explain CBD gummy labels and the numbers you see on them.

The number is the amount of CBD in the whole bottle

You might assume that a bottle labeled "300 mg CBD gummies" contains gummies that contain 300 mg CBD each, but that's not the case. The numbers on CBD gummy bottles, and any CBD product for that matter, tell you how much CBD is in the whole bottle, not in one gummy. This is simply what regulations in the CBD and hemp industry indicate is needed. The hope is that by listing the CBD content of the whole bottle, they are helping people avoid taking too much. This also makes it easier to compare how much you're really getting when you buy various brands. For instance, if you see a 300 mg bottle for $12 and a 400 mg bottle for $13, you know the 400 mg bottle is the better value.

You can calculate how many mg of CBD are in each gummy

The bottle should also tell you how many gummies are in the bottle. However, it won't always tell you how many mg of CBD are in each gummy. Luckily, that's pretty easy to calculate. You just divide the total mg of CBD in the bottle by the number of gummies. So, for example, say you have a 300 mg bottle that contains 60 gummies. Divide 300 by 60, and you get 5 mg. Each gummy in the container contains 5 mg of CBD. You can then take one, or you can take two or three, based on your preferred dosage. Most CBD gummies do end up being either 5 mg or 10 mg, as this makes it easy for customers to adjust their dose.
