How to Use CBD Oil: 1) Shake Tincture Well, 2) Measure Correct Dose With Calibrated Dropper, 3) Place Oil Under Tongue for 30-90 Seconds, 4) Swallow. 

Pure CBD hemp oil can be used directly just like any other nutritional supplement. With the mounting research and positive results from CBD studies showing such health benefits, there have been great advances in the development of cannabidiol oil.

These positive results have led to the emergence and development of a wide range of CBD oil products, which gives consumers the opportunity to find the best method, product, and dose for their specific need in a way that best fits their tastes and lifestyle. Newer products include drops, chewing gums, and capsules. Concentrated CBD oil can also be infused into the body and used topically in skin care products.

Generally, the most common ways to use CBD oil are:

How to Take CBD Oil: An In-depth Guide

The first and most important step when deciding how to take CBD oil should be to learn your product options and educate yourself on what experts recommend for your specific need. The producer of the CBD oil also provides recommendations on how to take their specific product. Nevertheless, there are general steps that should be followed when taking CBD oil. They are as follows:

  •      Step 1: Shake well

CBD oil should be completely natural. Shaking the oil enables you to find out whether there are other substances in the bottle. If the CBD oil has flavor substances like grape seeds, you will notice them when you shake it. Therefore, start by shaking CBD oil before you take it.

  •      Step 2: Measure Correct Dose With Calibrated Dropper
  •      Step 3: Place Oil Under Tongue for 30-90 Seconds

Squeeze the top of your dropper to fill CBD oil into the pipette. Dispense CBD oil under the tongue and swish it around if you like. Alternatively, you can also let the oil sit under the tongue. CBD oil drops taste better, especially if you have a flavored oil version. Add the number of drops you need to get your daily dose of CBD as instructed by the manufacturer. CBD oil should be absorbed into the body system after holding it in the mouth for 60 to 90 seconds before swallowing.

  •      Step 4: Swallow
  •      Step 5: Repeat This Process

Repeat this process as recommended by the manufacturer. It’s important to note that CBD oil has been shown through some studies to induce mild to moderate sedative effects when taken in large amounts. Some users have also reported experiencing more mild, relaxing or calming effects when they take CBD in smaller amounts.

Avoid Dosage hassles.

Cannabidiol Life CBD Oil Gel Capsules won awards at the CBD East Expo in 2018. Gel Capsules are an excellent alternative to tinctures because the dose is one pill for most people.

CBD Oil Dosage; HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD YOU TAKE?

According to Mayo Clinic, CBD dosage should depend on traditional use, expert opinion, scientific research, and publications (source.) Essentially, CBD oil dosages, as well as consumption intervals, should be based on the daily recommend dosages found on your CBD product labels. If the company you are buying from doesn’t offer you dose information on their website or on their product label, DO NOT BUY and REPORT them.

Finding the correct amount of CBD for you may take a bit of trial and error, especially if you try to do it on your own. Dosage recommendation should be given to you by your Doctor as that is what they are trained to do. Doctor’s base Cannabidiol dosages on the severity of the associated health problems and issues that they are looking to alleviate. That means, it strictly depends on your condition!  There is no specific amount of CBD oil that everybody should take.

    What is CBD Oil?

    What is CBD Oil?

    CBD Oil is a viscous liquid that contains concentrated extracts of cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical compound secreted by cannabis flowers.

    CBD is the second most common cannabinoid out of the 113 that make up the genetic structure of hemp and cannabis plants. Oil concentrations change depending on the manufacturer’s intent and state sales laws. Some oil labels specialize the concentrations with terms like full spectrum or broad spectrum.

    A full spectrum oil will contain all naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes present at the time of extraction. Broad spectrum oil’s make up changes depending on additives and carrier oils. Cannabidiol is also non-psychoactive.  Meaning, you will NOT experience the infamous, euphoric type of high that is associated with cannabis oils rich in THC.

    How is CBD oil made?

    The hemp plant is part of the cannabis sativa family generally chosen for CBD extraction because it produces high volumes of the cannabinoid. Hemp plants are also coincidently very low producers of THC. Plant quality selection is very important, the less processed the plant is the more its natural properties are preserved.

    When CBD is sold in oil it is either pure extracted cannabis oil or isolated powder which is then often combined with a carrier oil like coconut or MCT. The extraction method for CBD varies significantly, and below is a short overview of the most common processes.

    CO2 Extraction

    This style of extraction uses “supercritical,” a state of combined semi-liquid and semi-gas, carbon dioxide to pull the plant’s phytochemicals. This supercritical state is ideal because it allows the carbon dioxide to move and dissolve plant material in both forms. The process generally follows this method using a specialized machine.

    First, the carbon dioxide is prepared by rendering it with intense pressure and cold then raised to supercritical with heat. Then the CO^2 passes through the sourced cannabis plants and collects extracts. Last, this extract combination is exposed to low pressure which separates plant extract from the CO^2, which yields the finished cannabis oil.

    This process tends to produce oil that is very safe for consumption if done in a sterile environment. It also is very exact in its manufacturing. As a vendor, it is important to be aware that this is a very expensive process and machine which requires advanced chemist expertise.

    Solvent Extraction

    This extraction method is very basic, it’s so simple it can be done even from home. Using a base solvent, the most popular being ethanol, harvested cannabis plants are exposed and left to stir and marinate. This time of marination allows the base to slowly dissolve the plant materials and bind with them.

    This mixture is then drained and slowly turned over heat until the ethanol evaporates leaving the oil. Beyond being relatively straightforward, this production method is very cost-effective. The main concerns, however, are that a base like ethanol is very flammable and that overheating cannabinoids can denature them.

    Dry Ice or Ice Water Method

    This form of extraction creates a powder resin commonly referred known as “bubble hash.” This method has been improved upon and varied from expert to expert, but the steps are generally the same. First, the harvested cannabis plant pieces are finely cut and then added to ice (or dry ice).

    Next, water is added and the mixture is sieved through micron mesh bags to weed out impurities and plant byproduct from the forming extract multiple times. Lastly, the water is drained and the product is left to dry. This process produces relatively large amounts of plant extract but is labor intensive.

    Oil Extraction

    This method of making CBD is becoming increasingly popular. It entails the use of carrier oil to extract CBD oil. Currently, olive oil is commonly used during the process. The method is becoming increasingly popular because of the added benefits of the olive oil nutrients and the fact that it eliminates the unwanted residues.

    This technique’s results are different than the other mentioned extraction methods. The process will produce infused oil, not pure cannabis extract. Cooking oil, usually olive oil, is combined with the cannabis material being used and is warmed for hours then strained. The only drawback to this process is that the CBD will be consequently diluted.
