How to understand CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) product strength and calculate your CBD dosage
Use this equation to calculate product strength:
MG PER ML = (mg CBD) ÷ (ml container volume) >> e.g 750mg ÷ 30ml = 25mg per ml
Use this equation to calculate cost per ml
PRICE PER ML = (mg CBD) ÷ (unit price) >> e.g. 750mg ÷ $108 = $6.94 per mg
As a guide for dosage: 1 drop = .05ml / 20 drops = 1ml
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified
in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications – due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly a lack of psychoactivity (as is typically
associated with ∆9-THC), and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions.
Therapeutic effects of CBD and THC found in cannabis.
For many years people have seen great therapeutic benefits from the the use of products that have contain both CBD and THC however based on the most recent empirical research, clinical experiments and a growing wealth of compelling anecdotal evidence, that THC free or low THC Cannabidiol (CBD Oil) products seem to be able to deliver all the wellness and medicinal effects most people would require. We know that humans and animals have an endocannabinoid system that naturally produces cannabinoid receptor proteins throughout the body. We produce our own endogenous cannabinoids that act on the body and human brain. The human brain has more cannabinoid (CBD) receptors (anandamides) than any other type of protein receptor. We also now know that the phytocannabinoids in cannabis match the human endocannabinoids so closely it’s almost as if the plant was created especially for us. We believe that cannabis should be decriminalized globally to enable easy and legal access to buy CBD products here online and anywhere else. Health and wellness is a Human Right!
While cannabis for recreational purposes is still outlawed in Iowa, penalties for possession of of high THC cannabis are relatively relaxed compared to many other states. The state has begun to introduce medical cannabis laws outlined below and passed a “CBD only” law in 2014.
CBD from Hemp Oil in Iowa
Hemp CBD oil is federally legal in the U.S. Individual state laws and some states have passed state laws to reflect cannabidiol (CBD) are legal in their own state. Iowa is enacting their own laws regulating hemp-derived CBD. Iowa is one such state that governs hemp-derived CBD.
Medical Cannabis in Iowa
Iowa has been more cautious than other states, expanding its medical marijuana law in 2017 to allow ultra low tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, products to be sold to patients with conditions with cancer, MS, seizures, AIDS or HIV, Crohn’s disease, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, untreatable pain or terminal diseases.
Iowa has licensed just two medical marijuana manufacturing facilities located in Cedar Rapids and Des Moines. Five dispensaries that soon will sell oils, creams, suppositories and other products to those who have state-issued registration cards in 2019 have been approved in Iowa.
CBD and low-THC programs like Iowa’s are a strong first step towards enabling patients to benefit from the healing properties of the plant. We look forward to working with the state to ensure Iowans have access to safe, predictable and affordable cannabis.” said the The Cedar Rapids based Acreage Holdings who have been given approval for a manufacturing facility.
Acreage’s expansion into Iowa is part of a strategic plan to address patient demand related to legislative changes. Over the past two years, Iowa legislature has enacted several changes that have allowed patients with more conditions to qualify for the existing low-THC program. Currently, state law limits access to patients with cancer, MS, seizures, AIDS or HIV, Crohn’s disease, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, untreatable pain or terminal diseases. The state’s cannabis production is limited to two manufacturers and five dispensaries.

Iowa’s limited medical cannabis laws expired in July 2017 and state legislators do have plans to propose a more comprehensive set of medical cannabis rules.
Iowa’s inability to pass a bill to move forward on industrial hemp production in May 2018 has left the hemp production option out for Iowans.
During World War II, Iowa supplied 25 percent of the hemp needed, for production of hemp fibre products growing hemp across 50,000 acres, for the second world war effort. The US is Canada’s largest export market for their hemp production. At last count, 40 states are working on some type of industrial hemp program. With more and more states looking at it that leaves less potential acres to profit from hemp growing for Iowa.
Some hope that the medicinal cannabis program will be widened to add more chronic conditions to qualify and to improve medical cannabis program in Iowa.
Recreational Cannabis in Iowa
Possession of any amount of recreational cannabis in Iowa is a misdemeanor. First time offenders can be jailed for 6 months and forced to pay a maximum fine of $1,000.

Possession penalties are also levied on individuals who are found with cannabis within 1,000 feet of a public park, elementary school, secondary school, or a school bus.
Offenders who are found to be chronic cannabis abusers may be sent for rehabilitation. If they successfully complete the program, the court can place them on probation.
Sale and distribution of any quantity of cannabis is a felony punishable by jail terms ranging from 5 years to 10 years and fines ranging from $7500 to $100,000. The state of Iowa has minimum mandatory sentences of up to 10 years for individuals who distribute cannabis to minors.
Cultivation of Cannabis in Iowa
Ignoring federal conversations, states continue to implement hemp programs. In early April, Iowa legislators advanced a bill to develop a cultivation research program, joining 33 other states.
Cultivation of high THC cannabis in Iowa is a felony punishable with up to 25 years imprisonment and up to $1000,000 in fines. Soliciting a minor to cultivate cannabis can lead to a minimum mandatory sentence of up to 10 years. The Iowa state has approved the cultivation of industrial hemp for research purposes.
About Iowa (IA)
Iowa’s capital city Des Moines is its largest city by population. Iowa has been listed as one of the safest states in which to live. Its nickname is the Hawkeye State.
Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Missouri and Big Sioux rivers to the west and the Mississippi River to the east. It is surrounded by six states including Minnesota to its north, Wisconsin to the northeast, South Dakota to the northwest, Illinois to the east, Missouri to the south, and good old Nebraska to the west.
In French colonial times, Iowa was a part of French Louisiana and Spanish Louisiana therefore its state flag is patterned after the flag of France. After the Louisiana Purchase, people laid the foundation for an agriculture-based economy in the heart of what was known as the Corn Belt.
In the latter half of the 20th century, Iowa’s agricultural economy made the transition to a diversified economy of advanced manufacturing, processing, financial services, information technology, biotechnology, and green energy production. Iowa is the 26th most extensive in land area and the 30th most populous of the 50 U.S states. Its agricultural potential for growing hemp as a major crop is huge however the conservative nature of its sitting politicians is stopping hemp production and farming from being able to flourish.
The state of Iowa gets considerable attention and visits from the Presidential candidates every four years because the Iowa caucus, gatherings of voters to select delegates to the state conventions. Iowa holds the first presidential caucus in the country. The caucuses, held in January or February of the election year, involve people gathering in homes or public places and choosing their candidates, rather than casting secret ballots as is done in a presidential primary election, so the presidential candidates can influence people by being in the area.
