  •     The cost per milligram of CBD is determined by dividing the retail price of a CBD product by the total milligrams of CBD in the product (e.g. $100 bottle with 1,000mg CBD is 10 cents per milligram, $100/1000mg = $0.10). Use this formula to find the true cost of CBD.
  •     Prescription CBD is 14 cents per milligram, according to the price of a 100 mL supply (containing 10,000mg of CBD for $1377) found on The average consumer product is 10 cents per milligram of CBD.
  •     Some CBD products with low retail prices are outrageously expensive when you look at the cost per milligram of CBD. For example, we found a $20 CBD product with 25mg of CBD that cost a whopping 80 cents per milligram of CBD.
