Getting started with CBD Oil

Getting started with CBD Oil

If you've only just discovered CBD oil you may be wondering how to get started. You've heard that it has many benefits but don't know how to take it, which products to use, and how much to take.


Everyone is different and will need a different dosage depending on their own body and their reason for taking CBD. That's why we have a CBD oil at 2.5% potency, each 10 ml bottle contains 235 mg of active CBD. We suggest that you start with our 2.5% oil at the recommended dose of 6-12 drops per day. Taking CBD oil sublingually (under the tongue) enables it to be absorbed through the tissues under the tongue and enter the bloodstream quicker than if swallowed and absorbed further down the gastrointestinal tract. Place the drops under the tongue and hold for around 30 seconds, or for as long as you can, before you swallow.

If you have never taken any cannabis products before then just start slowly with a couple of drops, you can take the drops over the course of the day rather than all in one go. Take note of how you feel after 15 minutes or so as you should begin to feel the effects any time from 15 minutes to an hour. If you don't feel anything after this time try increasing the dosage. After around 6-8 hours most of the CBD will have been eliminated from the body. Remember not to take more than 40 drops in any one day.

When you're used to taking the 2.5% strength and feel ready for a stronger oil then you can move on to our 5% oil at 470 mg CBD, which equates to around 2.35 mg CBD per drop.

We use an organic olive oil carrier for our CBD oils as, not only does it taste very nice (if you like olive oil!), it helps to make the CBD oil more bioavailable. This means that it helps the body to be able to use more of the CBD.
