CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol, is causing a lot of buzz lately in the food and wellness industry. Many people are praising this natural chemical compound for its many benefits. But how exactly do you take it? In this guide, we run through how to take CBD oil along with the benefits of each method.
How to take CBD Oil?
Although there are many different ways in which you can take CBD oil, the strength of your dose should guide you on the method. A great starting point, especially when it comes to our CBD Oils, is to start with one or two drops under the tongue and hold the liquid for around a minute.
Method One: Tincture
Probably the most well-known method of taking CBD supplements is the tincture. This is a dropper bottle that you can use to drop or spray the CBD oil directly into the mouth. With this method, you drop or spray the CBD oil directly under the tongue (where capillary-rich areas reside) and wait for around a minute for the CBD to reach your bloodstream. Once a minute is up, you swallow the oil and go about your day.
Method Two: Capsule
CBD capsules or soft gels are another great way to take CBD oil. Our soft gels are made with organic certified hemp and the glass containers are recyclable. This option is great for anyone looking to measure their doses exactly, but as the oil is ingested through the stomach you may be waiting upwards of 30 minutes in order to feel an effect.
Method Three: E-Liquids
Although e-liquids are not technically oils, this is one method worth mentioning if you vape. CBD liquids are made from hemp plants grown in certified organic soil and produced with a special process that extracts the lipids from the hemp. Shop our range of flavourful CBD e-liquids here.
Method Four: Body Oil
For some, the taste of CBD Oil can be unappealing. For many, this means turning to vape pens to ingest their desired dosage.
