CBD is obtained by extracting from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil such as MCT oil. This mixture of ingredients improves the level of bioavailability (absorption) of CBD for your body multiplies the beneficial properties.
CBD oil is growing with popularity for health and wellness products as scientific studies of the extract reveal its potential to alleviate various health conditions. Every person who decides to use this natural product can get a solution for their problem.
Your CBD Goals
What problem worries you the most? Are you experiencing emotional stress? Are you uncomfortable with pain? Do you want to improve your well-being?
CBD and other phytocannabinoids may have a variety of health benefits for this. Once you have identified your problem and decided to use CBD oil, you need to choose the appropriate dosage to consume.
The dosage is different for each person. It can vary from desired results, health status, weight, age and cannabis tolerance.
Popular Ways to Consume CBD Oil
This type of consumption of CBD oil is called sublingual, which means you place it under the tongue. You drip a certain amount of CBD drops under your tongue and try not to swallow it by holding it under your tongue for about 60 seconds.
Why do you need to keep oil in your mouth? The area under the tongue contains many blood capillaries that can absorb CBD as quickly as possible and deliver it into the bloodstream. Meaning the sooner CBD enters the bloodstream, the faster it can begin to act in the body. It may not be as tasty as the CBD gummies, but the absorption rate of CBD is higher than with oral consumption.
Oral intake of CBD oil
Oral intake means taking CBD oil by your mouth and swallow it. In this case, CBD must pass through the digestive tract and liver before it enters the bloodstream and exerts its properties. This extended route means it will take a little longer for you to feel the effect; this time can vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours for each individual.
Plus, not all of the CBD amount you ingest will remain intact for your body with this method. Usually, when you swallow CBD ( or any other drugs), your bloodstream absorbs about 20% of the dosage. This also needs to be considered when calculating the amount to have the best experience of results. Don't think that you need to take a lot of oil at once for better absorption! This is not true! For example, in our line of CBD oils, you can select lower or higher CBD strength levels ranging from 500mg strength to 1500mg strength.
However, orally taking CBD also means that it will last much longer in your body and act.

How much CBD oil should you take every day?
The CBD Dosage Chart can help you determine your correct dosage!
If you are new to CBD, we recommend starting your day with a few drops, approximately 10-12 mg per day. In the future, you can increase the dosage until you determine your level. After that, the dosage does not need to increase.
When is it better to take CBD Oil?
The time you should take CBD Oil can vary from person to person, and if in doubt, you should always consult with a specialist. However, we recommend starting with one of our 500mg Strength CBD Oils. Depending on what results you want to achieve, you can divide your daily dosage into three doses during the day or in the morning and evening. If your motive is relaxation, then it makes sense to use it only in the evening.
You have to experiment to find what works for you - CBD doesn't work the same for everyone. But once you find what works for you, repeat this every day to develop a consistent routine that your body can get comfortable with. One thing our bodies agree on is that they respond most effectively to regularity.
While CBD is generally considered safe and has no serious or long-lasting side effects on its own, it is always best to take with some precaution.
Try not to exceed the daily dosage too much. If you are taking prescription medications, be sure to check with your doctor before starting your CBD experience. New research on phytocannabinoids is still ongoing.
