How to take CBD for anxiety?

Posted by Octavian Vasilescu on

The main reasons people buy CBD is to help them dealing with stress and anxiety. Because CBD is not psychoactive and non- addictive, people prefer it as a natural alternative to prescribed anti- depressants and other manufactured medication.

How to use it 

The best way to use CBD oil is to add a few drops under the tongue and to keep it there for at least a minute before swallowing it or spitting it out. Over 90% of the oil is absorbed through the capillaries under the tongue within 60 seconds, so it's not necessary to swallow it. 

When swallowed, more than 40% of the CBD is destroyed by the digestive system, making it a wasteful way of taking CBD.

Many people find the natural flavour quite unpleasant, but the good thing is that you don't have taste buds under the tongue.

When to take it 

CBD is best taken around meal time, and the best advice is to take it at the end of your main meal each day. It can be anytime of the day, but in our experience, people that make a routine of taking CBD in the evening have improved sleep and that gives them a positive start for the whole of next day.

How many times a day should you take it 

CBD is non toxic, so there is no limit to how many times a day you should take CBD. When you find your own individual right dose ( e.g. 2, 3, 4 drops, etc) you will feel the calming effect in less then 10 minutes and that is likely to last for a couple of hours minimum.

A full 10ml bottle contains 200 drops and a dropper/pipette is 20 drops. So there is plenty in a bottle to last for the best part of 1 month. 

Some people use too little CBD, being worried for wasting money or fearing they might get high or sleepy. The best advice is to start with 1 or 2 drops at a time, and add a few more each time, until you feel the benefits you are hoping for.

 That is not the case, taking a full pipette (20 drops) is indeed excessive, but using up to 10-12 drops in a day (all at once or 2/3 times a day) is not uncommon. 

Have a look at our 10% Whole Plant oil. It has the best natural flavour, it's organic, and it's great value at a wholesale price.
