How to take CBD oil

Before launching into CBD Oil dosage, it is worth remembering that science suggests the best way to ingest CBD oil is to put the drops under the tongue and hold them there for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.  This will give you the best chance of absorbing most of the CBD straight into the bloodstream rather than having the oil go down to the stomach and being processed there.

How long does it take for CBD oil to work?  Tinctures and capsules can take effect within 15-45 minutes and last for 4-6 hours with vapes being the quickest as when CBD is vaped it will enter your bloodstream faster and work quicker, you’ll feel it working within five minutes or so. Vaping CBD is perfect for people that have anxiety issues, sleeping issues or PTSD – you’ll feel calmer and more relaxed very quickly.

 We have surveyed our users and  recommend that first-time users begin with a 750ml oil, by starting at a medium dose like this, you can easily figure out how CBD works best for you.

After a week of using up to 70mg a day, there are two potentials:  By using your CBD consistently, and gradually experimenting with your dosage, your choices are: if you're satisfied, try decreasing by 20mg a day, and if you're dissatisfied, increase by 20mg a day, at least 75% more likely to have a satisfying CBD experience.

There is not one universal dosage of CBD that everyone should take. Instead different people (and, in the animal studies, different animals) respond to different dosages of CBD.

As of February 2020, the Food Standards Agency recommend that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD a day, unless a doctor agrees more.  

The endocannabinoid system

One of the most important discoveries around cannabis has been that of the endocannabinoid system, which scientists describe as being responsible for homeostasis, or balance, in the human body.  As a result of this finding there has been an incredible interest in the ability of cannabis and its constituent cannabinoids and terpenes, to help with everyday wellness and wellbeing, from anxiety and depression to menopause and stress.  The theory is that cannabinoids and terpenes provide additional assistance to the body’s endocannabinoid system when it is more out of balance than the body can redress using its own resources.
