CBD can be used in different ways. A few drops under the tongue is best. The body then absorbs the active substance quickly and easily. However, you can use any other method imaginable. There are users who use it in food, for example a few drops in a salad, yogurt or on bread. However, it is difficult to determine a good or constant dose with methods other than under the tongue.
Use your CBD oil by dripping under the tongue, then hold it under the tongue for a few seconds before swallowing. This stimulates the mucous glands and enzymes so that your body absorbs it even better.
CBD oil dosage
The desired or required dosage differs per person. Dosage is therefore best determined by personal experience. You start with a few drops, as indicated on the package. Then you increase the dose as you see fit. Keep in mind that CBD is effective immediately, but in most cases the effect is only noticeable after about five days.
Percentages and weight
Manufacturers indicate the amount of CBD present in percentages of the total amount. So at 5% in a 10 ml bottle, 0.05 ml of CBD is present. More interesting, however, according to scientists, is the weight. The rule of thumb is that 1% CBD oil corresponds to 10 mg per ml. So at 5% in a 10 ml bottle there is 500 mg CBD present (5% x 10 ml x 10 mg = 500 mg).
1 CBD drop from a bottle with a dropper is approximately 2.5 ml. Per percent, such a drop contains 0.5 mg CBD. With a bottle of 5% CBD oil that is 2.5 mg per drop. If you want to start with 10 mg CBD per day, then you take 4 drops.
You can experiment with the dosage of CBD oil yourself. It is a harmless, vegetable product. So you can’t take too much of it. But using many CBD drops at a time is not necessary. A few drops already put the body to work with its own cannabinoid system.
It may be obvious to use CBD for certain complaints. But CBD also helps without physical complaints. Several studies report that CBD and other cannabinoids also have a preventative effect. And users report that they feel more energetic, their taste increases or other everyday things improve.
