CBD Myths: the Bigger the Amount, the Better

Finding your balance with CBDDeciding which strengths and amount of CBD to choose can be confusing. From 50mg to 1500mg, how do you determine which is right for you and what does it even mean? Depending on your disposition, you may think that the more you take and stronger the CBD, the better. But what if that isn’t necessarily the best thing to do?

It’s a strange symptom of being a human being that we can at times consider the bigger to be the better. Whether it’s a bigger car, a bigger house or a bigger bank balance – the pros and cons all produce a balanced order, of sorts.

Yes, a big house will provide you with more space, but will also come with more taxation and more time cleaning. A powerful car will get you from A to B that bit quicker but will ultimately incur a larger insurance bill and more fuel. 


An increased amount in your bank balance may give the illusion of happiness, but in reality, there's more to life.

Which CBD product should I use?

There are many CBD infused products available on the market. However, tongue drops and vape oil are the most popular way to consume CBD.

How to use CBD Hemp Oil Drops

As one might assume, CBD oil drops are intended to be placed directly under the tongue or mixed with your favourite food and drink.

Should CBD Oil be Taken with Food?

CBD can be somewhat of an acquired flavour. So, if you like the taste on its own, feel free to mix it in with your food or drink.

If you vape e-liquid, then VSAVI’s CBD Vape Oil - available in a range of flavoured and unflavoured options - is a great alternative to the tongue drops.

The main difference between the tongue drops and vape oil will be the lower concentration levels of CBD found in the latter, which some people find requires them to vape more throughout the day. 

What’s the right amount for you?

If you are buying CBD for the first time, you may find it useful to start with a lower strength CBD oil and increase the strength after using it for a month or so.  Everybody is different, which means we’re all going to have an optimum strength that’s just right for us.


VSAVI Tongue Drops are available from 300mg or 3% to 1500mg or 15% of CBD per 10ml bottle, and VSAVI’s Vape Oil offer a scale of strengths that range from 50mg to 1000mg per 10ml bottle of e-liquid. 

Remember – just because your friend is using some inordinate super strength of 4000mg, doesn’t mean that you should too. Start by keeping it simple and work your way from there. 

Why use CBD?

There are no remedial or palliative benefits recognised by the UK and EU regarding CBD products, so why and how much you use will be down to you.

These products are a food supplement and are not intended to treat, prevent, or cure any disease. Food supplements are not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.
