5 Easy and Healthy Ways to Take CBD Oil

How do you take CBD oil? Are drops best or should you mix it with something?

We're here to answer all of your CBD questions, with 12 amazing ways to take your favourite CBD supplement.

1. CBD Oil Drops

The more traditional way to take CBD oil is in drops. To take it:

  1. Shake the bottle well to blend the ingredients if they've become separated.
  2. Add your drops underneath your tongue (known as sublingually).
  3. Wait 60 seconds before swallowing, so that the CBD is absorbed.

This is the most effective way to take CBD, as it doesn't have to go through your digestive tract.

2. CBD Smoothies

The earthy taste of natural CBD can be a bit too much for some people, so adding them to a smoothie is a great way to better stomach the flavour. Mix it with oats, milk, fruits, berries, vegetables, and ice, for a great CBD smoothie.

Add superfoods for even more goodness, such as blueberries, avocado, chia seeds, and kefir.

3. CBD in Baking

You can bake CBD and retain the majority of the positive properties, so this can be a great option for those looking to make their own edibles. Bake them into cakes, brownies, tarts, and everything in between!

4. CBD Drinks

If you prefer to drink your CBD, then you have plenty of options. We already discussed the CBD smoothie, but why not drop it into your daily tea or coffee. Some people report that CBD helps take the anxious edge out of the caffeine they drink, which may help balance your emotions.

5. CBD Creams

Topical CBD is used by some people to help with inflammation and skin conditions, as well as muscle soreness after exercise. Why not mix some of your CBD oil with your favourite moisturiser, to add some CBD goodness to it?

Do you swallow CBD?

Yes you swallow CBD oil after leaving it underneath your tongue for a minute.

How much CBD should you take?

If you're a beginner, start with the smallest dose the manufacturer recommends, and then test your own dose based on your reaction to it.

You should check with your own GP to ensure the CBD oil is safe for you to take alongside other medication.

Can you take CBD oil at your home?

Yes you can take CBD virtually anywhere you like within reason. Certain types may be best to take at home, such as creams/ointments.

How does CBD% compare with MG?

The CBD% noted on a bottle is the percentage of CBD based on the total ingredients in the bottle.

The MG of CBD is the total amount of CBD in the entire bottle in MG.

EG our 1000mg CBD oil contains 1000mg of CBD in the entire bottle. The entire bottle is 10ml, and so this means it's 10% CBD.
