How To Take CBD
Should I Use CBD Oil or CBD Spray?
Most people start their CBD journey with CBD oil. It’s simple, accessible and really easy to add to your daily routine. When picking your first CBD product, you might have a choice between a pipette dropper and an atomizer spray. There is no difference in the products in the bottle, just in the delivery system. With a pipette, you measure the amount you would like to take and drop the CBD under your tongue. You then leave it to absorb through the small blood vessels under your tongue. After a few minutes, you can swallow any remaining product. With an atomiser spray bottle, you simply squirt the product under your tongue.
For our 600mg CBD oil, you will need three sprays to get a 10mg dose of CBD. Choosing between a CBD oil dropper or CBD spray is a matter of preference. Some people like the extra control they have over the dosage that you get with a dropper, while others like the ease of being able to quickly enjoy a squirt of CBD. If you change your CBD product strength, make sure you make a note of your new dosage. You’ll need far less to achieve the same results when you invest in a higher strength oil.
How Do I Take CBD Edibles?
CBD edibles include things like gummy sweets, chocolate drops and chewable tablets. Instead of placing these under your tongue, you would chew or suck them to release the CBD. A small amount will be absorbed through the small blood vessels in your mouth, but the majority will be absorbed through the lining of your digestive tract.
We recommend chewing your CBD edibles well to release as much of the CBD as possible. With chocolate and gummy sweets, you might want to let them dissolve completely before swallowing. This will help to release as much of the CBD as possible.
Pay close attention to the dosage of your CBD edibles, as it’s very easy to mindlessly nibble away and realise you’ve just consumed a lot of CBD. Check the packaging to make sure you know the recommended dosage.
How Do I Use CBD Topicals & Skincare?
You don’t have to ingest CBD to enjoy its abundant benefits! CBD skincare is growing in popularity and you can find products to help support your skin’s natural biome and restore the moisture barrier. CBD muscle balms are also incredibly popular. These often contain cooling or warming ingredients to help soothe aching muscles.
With CBD topicals, the CBD is not absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead, the CBD supports endocannabinoid receptors found in the skin.
What Is the Best Time of Day to Take CBD?
Creating your perfect CBD schedule is all about your preferences. You can take CBD at any time of the day, and many people take it multiple times a day to help support different goals.
Taking CBD first thing in the morning can help you to get your day off to a great start. Add it to your morning cup of coffee or stir a few drops into your green tea. You could also start your day with a CBD capsule to ensure a consistent dose of CBD.
You could also take CBD after a heavy workout, before a big presentation, or with your afternoon coffee. And finally, some people like to make CBD part of their bedtime routine. Open up your meditation app, pop some CBD under your tongue, and get ready for a restful and relaxing night’s sleep.
Try to avoid taking CBD on an empty stomach, as the harsh stomach acid can destroy the cannabinoids. Instead, try to take CBD alongside food, particularly healthy fats. Adding your CBD to a creamy latte, for example, will help to increase how much of the cannabinoids you can absorb.
How Long Does CBD Take to Work?
First things first, CBD is not a cure or treatment for anything. Instead, you should try to see it as a way to support you on your path to wellbeing. It’s a supplement, so you’ll be rewarded best if you can take it consistently. We recommend taking CBD for at least 2-4 weeks before you start to notice the benefits. Using CBD alongside healthy lifestyle changes is one of the best ways to support your body.
