Getting More Out Of Your CBD Oil

by Arthur Bates

CBD oil can be a wonderful, effective option for managing all sorts of ailments, from headaches to tremors. It's very safe, and it is pretty simple to use. However, if you want to get the most out of your CBD oil, there are a few steps you can take. 

1. Make sure you're using the minimum effective dose

CBD is a bit different from the medications you're probably used to using. Everyone's needed dose is a bit different. If you are using more CBD than your body needs, you won't be getting any additional benefits, but you will be wasting product. 

So how do you figure out your minimum effective dose? Start small. Use one drop and see what you feel. Add another drop and see how that feels. Keep going one drop at a time until you no longer notice any additional benefits. One drop less than the number that didn't lead to any additional improvement is the number of drops you need.

2. Hold the drops under your tongue

Are you swallowing your CBD oil right away? If so, you are missing out on some of the benefits, and you're probably not enjoying the benefits as soon after dosing as you could be. The best way to use CBD is to hold the drops under your tongue for a minute before swallowing. At least some of the CBD will be absorbed through the thin skin under your tongue and directly into your bloodstream, so it will take effect much sooner. This can be a real lifesaver when you're taking CBD for a headache or other acute pain.

3. Use fresh oil

CBD oil contains a lot of volatile compounds. In other words, it contains compounds that evaporate easily. As such, you really want your CBD oil to be relatively fresh when you use it. The fresher the CBD oil, the more of these volatile compounds you will get; many of them have therapeutic benefits. Only buy the amount of CBD oil you can use within a month. If you stock up, by the time you use all the CBD, it won't be as beneficial.

By using fresher CBD oil, always holding the drops under your tongue, and experimenting to find the most effective dose, you can get more out of your CBD oil. This oil truly is beneficial for many people, and with these tips, you can get the most benefits.
