How do you take CBD oil?
It is best to drip the CBD oil directly under the tongue. Under the tongue are the oral mucosa, so your body can absorb it quickly and it ends up in the right places. Optionally, you can first drop the CBD oil on a spoon so that you can see what you are doing.
For optimal effect, follow these steps:
- Always shake the CBD bottle well before use.
- Drip the CBD oil.
- You wait 60 seconds
- Swallow the oil.
- You can rinse your mouth with some water if necessary. This is not mandatory, but can make it more enjoyable.
Some people also drip the oil on some bread, yogurt or a teaspoon of honey to mask the taste. This can't hurt, but with this you don't give your oral mucosa the time to fully absorb the CBD. After all, you don't leave the oil under the tongue for a while before you swallow it. The best remains to place it pure under the tongue. If you find the taste a bit too intense, you can use some aids in the beginning. Slowly you will get used to the taste, after which you can switch to the pure CBD oil.
Dosage CBD oil
Let's get straight to the point: the right dosage for CBD oil is different for everyone . You can determine a dosage of CBD oil based on weight, but this excludes so many important indicators. There are quite a few points that influence the need and whether you are susceptible to this substance.
For example, think of:
- The degree of stress you are experiencing at that moment.
- Your mindset. A negative mindset requires more energy.
- Your lifestyle. For example, do you exercise regularly, do you sleep enough and do you eat healthy?
- Certain medications that you use regularly or sporadically.
- Your diet. Do you eat a bit healthier or a lot of junk food?
- How sensitive are you as a person to supplements?
At one moment, CBD oil can work well, while the next time you may not feel anything or not the same. There are so many indicators that have influence. The 'correct' dosage therefore differs per individual and often per period. As with all other supplements.
Listen to your body
But do not be sad. By trying different amounts, you can find out what works for you. Even if you experience more stress and/or busyness for a period of time, it sometimes pays to increase the dosage slightly. Do what feels right and listen to your body – that's the most important message.
For example, a good starting dose is…
Of course there are guidelines that you can use to determine a starting dose. For example, you can start with one drop in the morning and one drop in the evening. After this you can slowly increase the dose. Leave a few days between each increase, so that you can feel how your body reacts to it.
How quickly can you increase the number of drops in CBD oil?
The most important advice is to listen to your body when it comes to dosing CBD oil correctly. Listening to your body and seeing how you react to it is not possible if you increase the dose too quickly. That is why it is important to leave a few days between each increase. That way you give your body time to adjust and react.
Why in oil format?
Because you drip the oil under the tongue and let it 'work in' for a while before you swallow it, the oil is absorbed by the oral mucosa. This makes it take effect quite quickly. Sometimes within 20 minutes. It is true that through this route the CBD oil also leaves the body faster.
When is the best time to take CBD oil?
It is best not to take CBD oil at one time of the day, but spread it over several moments. Because this supplement is absorbed faster by the body and also left faster, it can be beneficial to spread this supplement throughout the day. That way you will benefit from this all day long.
What happens if I take too much CBD?
We always recommend gradually building up the amount of CBD oil. Overdose of CBD is very unlikely. However, if you are considering an extremely high doses (over 20 drops per intake), discuss with your doctor.
