How to use CBD oil – What dosage should I take?
How to take CBD oil
When you receive your CBD oil, you will find that you have a bottle with a pipette attached to the bottle top. This is to help you dose your CBD oil drop by drop to go under your tongue.
To make things easier at first, we suggest you go to a mirror so that you can see what you’re doing.
- Squeeze the top of the pipette to draw some CBD oil up into the dropper, lift your tongue up so that you can place drops under the tongue.
- Lightly squeeze it the pipette so that the oil will slowly drip out one by one and land in your mouth under the tongue.
- Hold the oil under the tongue for 1-2 minutes, then swallow. If you want to, you can follow the oil down with any drink of your choice.
The amount of drops you place under your tongue will depend on what dosage you want to take.
What dosage of CBD should I take?
Finding the right dosage for you can take some trial and error, the aim is to find a dose that works for you that is also cost effective.
A common starting place is to start at a dose around 20mg.
If this dose worked well for you, you can keep lowering the dose over your next several goes, until you find a dose that doesn’t work.
From this point, you dose slightly above the dose that didn’t work for you to find the most cost-effective dose for you.
On the flip side; if 20mg didn’t work well for you, slowly increase your dose each time over your next several goes to find the most cost-effective dose for you.
How many MG of CBD is there per drop?
Short answer; it depends.
The concentration of CBD per drop depends on what bottle you have bought.
When you buy CBD oil, it should clearly state on the instructions approximately how many MG per drop your bottle of CBD oil has.
YourHemp 500mg CBD oil has approximately 2mg of CBD per drop.
So, if you wanted to take a dose around 20mg, you would have to place around 10 drops under the tongue.
2mg x 10 drops = 20mg
YourHemp 1000mg CBD oil has approximately 4mg of CBD per drop.
So, if you wanted to take a dose around 20mg, you would have to place around 4 drops under the tongue.
4mg x 5 drops = 20mg
YourHemp 1800mg CBD oil has approximately 6mg of CBD per drop.
So, if you wanted to take a dose around 20mg, you would have to place around 3 drops under the tongue.
6mg x 3 drops = 18mg
Why take CBD oil under the tongue?
CBD is taken under the tongue because it can be directly absorbed straight into the bloodstream, this happens through the mucous membrane capillaries and blood vessels in the mouth.
When CBD is directly absorbed into the bloodstream it can bypass the digestive system and the liver, meaning you can receive the full effects of the CBD sooner.
It gives the CBD a shorter amount of time to interact with the endocannabinoid system.
The oil that you swallow will still be digested and absorbed by the body, but it will take slightly longer to activate within the body.
Always consult your doctor before trying CBD or any other food supplements.
