How to use CBD Oil

by Gary Clark

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is a natural remedy derived from the cannabis plant. As one of the most popular ways to enjoy CBD, this oil is used across the globe as a way to combat a wide range of physical and mental ailments. CBD oil is made by extracting it directly from the plant and diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp. Unlike THC, this broad-spectrum CBD is non-psychoactive which means it won’t get you high. Instead, CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, which regulates the body’s balance and homeostasis, especially during times of stress. 

If you’re looking for a way to introduce CBD into your life, or you want to switch the type of CBD you use, we’re going to take a look at how to use CBD oil and what benefits you can expect to enjoy. 

How to take CBD oil

CBD oil is best taken sublingually, or ‘under the tongue’. This gives the best absorption as you gently squeeze the required drops into your mouth. Once the drops have been administered, close your mouth and hold the oil under your tongue for around a minute before swallowing. By letting it sit under your tongue, you are encouraging quicker absorption into the bloodstream, as the tongue is a capillary-rich area.

By taking CBD this way, you will experience the effects a lot quicker than you would if using CBD edibles or capsules. The dropper is also designed to ensure you get a consistent dose, giving you full control over how much you take and whether you increase or decrease the level. 

If you’re not comfortable administering CBD oil in this way, there are other ways to introduce it into your daily routine. Here are a few of our favourites!

  • Add drops to your morning tea or coffee
  • Add CBD drops to your breakfast smoothie 
  • Pop a few drops in your favourite mocktail 
  • Switch up a salad by adding drops to your salad dressing

How you take CBD oil is very much a personal preference, and it can take time to find the dose and strength that works for you. Once you find the right balance for your needs, ensure you stay below the recommended 70mg of CBD per day. 

When should you take CBD oil?

Again, the time that you take your CBD oil is down to personal preference; however, it’s important to understand the effects of CBD oil to determine when is best for you, for example…

  • Taking CBD oil in the morning can increase feelings of alertness and improve your focus; this is because it lowers the cortisol levels in the body to reduce stress. 
  • Taking CBD oil in the evening is great for soothing the body and mind, setting you up for a great night’s sleep.
