How to take CBD oil? And make the most of your moment.

CBD is not like other food supplements, & shouldn’t be treated the same either. CBD is a process. It’s a daily ritual. It is an opportunity to take a moment out of your day, and let some good in!

One of the questions we are asked most frequestly, is how to take CBD oil. To many, the answer is simple; just drop some CBD under your tongue and leave it there. Honestly, that is fairly fool-proof, but we see CBD differently, and like to make the most of the moments that we take our CBD.

So, here is our take on how best to take CBD oil, and some techniques that will get the most out of the moment. 

 

 

 

How to take your CBD oil? 

As we mentioned above, it is a moment that should not be wasted. CBD is a very powerful compound. 
 
  • First, shake your oil thoroughly: This part simply allows all of the Cannabinoids and hemp bioactive to evenly distribute themselves into the oil. 
  • Using a mirror, place the required drops under your tongue: If your fed up of miscounting the drops, or dropping the CBD on your face, then a mirror is the solution. This way, you can put your drops directly under your tongue without mess.
  • The oil is highly concentrated, so, you only need a few: Some producers require a whole dropper, but our oils are much more concentrated, so you only need a few drops. 
  • Slowly place your tongue down on to the oil: The sublingual glass is found under your tongue and can absorb compounds (like CBD) directly into the blood stream. It means the CBD will find its way into your blood stream almost immediately. 
  • Take a moment: Roughly 60 seconds, while the oil is absorbed & moving around your body.
  • Make the most of the moment: Take a deep breath in (about 80% lung capacity), & then another shorter breath (up to 95% capacity). Slowly exhale over 25 seconds. Repeat twice. Exhale the bad, and let in some good. 
  • Swallow the oil: The oil may have a strong flavour (as it should! It’s packed with active terpenes & bioactives!). Wash down with a glass of water.
 
 

When is the best time to take CBD oil?

How we take CBD is just as important as why we take it. When, is less important, but building it into a daily routine is pretty handy.

 

Morning:

CBD is a good way to ready up before the day begins. CBD is fat soluble and better absorbed in the gut with food.

 

Evening:

We love to take our CBD just before a warm cup of herbal tea. The timing is not essential, but should be part of your wind down before bed.

 

 

 

How long does it take for CBD to take effect?

How long it takes for CBD to take effect depends on how you consume the oil, but we’re going to assume that you’ve enjoyed the oil sublingually as described above. 
 
When taken sublingually, CBD typically takes between 15 to 45 minutes to start taking effect.
 
The CBD to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the glands membranes in the mouth which helps it bypass the hardh digestive system (why Liposomal CBD is so effective)  and liver, which can delay onset and reduce bioavailability.
 
Things like metabolism, the concentration of CBD in the product, and whether it is taken on an empty or full stomach can influence the onset time too.
