Video: How To Use CBD Oil & Dosage Recommendations
by Caitlin March
Ever wonder how to use CBD oil? How much do I take? When should I take it? We've created a guide to help you discover how to take hemp oil effectively.
1. Choose your CBD dosage.
Our most common questions that we are asked are how to use CBD oil and what dosage should new users take. Since CBD oil is not a one-size-fits-all supplement, it can be difficult to nail down exactly what the best recommendation will be.
We recommend 8 to 8.5 mg of hemp CBD oil per day to start. This amount will vary depending on the CBD concentration you purchased. Here's a short breakdown of how concentration differs among our full-spectrum tinctures:
- 250mg concentration: Take a 1ml (i.e. a full dropper) for 8mg of hemp CBD oil
- 500mg concentration: Take .5ml (i.e. a half dropper) for 8mg of hemp CBD oil
- 1000mg concentration: Take .25ml (i.e. a quarter dropper) for 8mg of hemp CBD oil
- 2000mg concentration: Take .12ml (i.e. half of a quarter dropper) for 8mg of hemp CBD oil.

2. Take your CBD tincture.
If you're new to CBD, it's important to know how to use CBD oil. The most effective way to administer our CBD is to take it sublingually. We recommend allowing it to sit under your tongue for 30 seconds, then use your tongue to distribute the remaining oil to your inner cheeks. This method allows for maximum absorption and helps the supplement enter your bloodstream more instantaneously.
For best results, we suggest taking after a meal. When nutrients are present, our body can more readily absorb additional compounds like vitamins, supplements, or medications. Think about it this way: the body can absorb the CBD oil better when it isn't hungry for other nutrients. Like your breakfast.
3. Establish a routine.
Routine is crucial to understanding how your body responds to CBD oil. Most people take their dosage in a single serving, but you could try splitting your dosage into two or more servings throughout the day. Finding what's right for you requires experimentation - CBD doesn't behave the same for everyone. But once you do find what works for you, repeat that every day to develop a consist routine that your body can rely on. One thing our bodies do agree on: they thrive on regularity.
