CBD Oil: How To Use It Properly According To Your Needs

By  | 

CBD oil is both the simplest and most complex cannabis product out there. It’s important to know that CBD is a natural product and, unlike many pharmaceuticals, can be used safely by almost anyone. The key to achieving great results with CBD use is in knowing how to approach it correctly. Therefore, we will try and give you some basic guidelines which will allow you to achieve maximum benefits from CBD.

Use High-CBD Strains

Even if you’re getting CBD oil for recreational purposes (e.g. chronic pain, anxiety), high-CBD strains can be an effective solution. According to CFAH, CBD oil is both the simplest and most complex cannabis product out there. It’s important to know that CBD is a natural product and, unlike many pharmaceuticals, can be used safely by almost anyone. The key to achieving great results with CBD use is in knowing how to approach it correctly. Therefore, we will try and give you some basic guidelines which will allow you to achieve maximum benefits from CBD.

Get the Right Cannabidiol Amount

If you are a CBD newbie, we recommend you start with small dosages and wait for the results before increasing the daily dose. Cannabidiol is effective in tiny doses and its positive effects can remain unnoticed if the dosage is too high. Taking too much will not give you more benefits. It might actually worsen your health. Moreover, taking excessive amounts of CBD oil may cause dizziness and sleeping problems, so always start out with a low dosage and increase it gradually according to your needs. Even when starting with small dosages, try to use up all your CBD products within 10 days (2 weeks max) because any leftovers often lose their quality over time.

Use Product Properly

The most common mistake CBD users make is using it too strongly which leads to CBD’s medicinal effects wearing off. Beginners should always use CBD oil below the tongue because negative symptoms are often aggravated when the product is ingested by mouth. To improve its absorption, simply divide your daily dosage into 3 or more separate servings. When you buy an edible product, remember that they are made with concentrated forms of CBD and can be extremely potent. Overdosing on edibles isn’t as dangerous as overdosing on sublingual tinctures, but it still has its risks so always start out with a very small amount (5 mg max).

Use Hemp Oil Instead of Medical Marijuana

Hemp oil is much cheaper than medical marijuana and contains high amounts of CBD (10%-25%). If you find yourself often taking too much cannabis oil or taking it more often then you should switch to hemp oil (or at least take CBD products with lower concentrations). Although both oils contain CBD, hemp oil has only traces of THC (<0.3%) which is why it can be legally purchased in all 50 states. High-CBD strains are also low in THC (5% max), but they’re not always available and Hemp Oil’s uses range far beyond medical applications.

When it comes to treating your symptoms with CBD oil the most important thing is knowing how much to take and what product to buy. If you get the dosage and product right, you can be sure that you will get the best possible results.
