How much should I take and how often?
Many people have discovered that CBD can help them manage pain, anxiety, and sleeplessness. Does it work for everyone? Will it work for you? The one universal truth is that everyone is different. So finding what works for you may take a little effort and patience.
How to take CBD Oil — The “Sublingual” method
We recommend taking CBD oil “sublingually” or under the tongue. This is one of the fasted ways to experience CBD — hence our namesake, “Sublingwell“. CBD absorbed under the tongue goes directly into the bloodstream. You can typically feel benefits in as little as 15-45 minutes…sometimes sooner.
If you swallow the oil, don’t worry. This just means that the CBD has to pass through your stomach and liver before entering your bloodstream.
While some may not respond to CBD, in many cases those who claim it does not work are often taking too little — a common mistake. For pain relief and anxiety, a good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1–6MG of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on the individual’s level of pain.
Find what works for you
Again, everyone is different just know that at lower doses of CBD help with pain and anxiety, and higher doses help with sleep.
Whether you are using our full-spectrum or CBD isolate oils, we generally recommend starting with just a few drops when you have time to chill. Give yourself about 30 minutes before adjusting or adding drops. Repeat for two days. This will allow you to see how your body responds. If you do not feel any relief on day three, then keep increasing every few days until you find what works for you.
How often should I take CBD?
After you’ve determined what works for you, we recommend starting and ending your day with your CBD. Consistently taking a “daily dose” of CBD oil helps maintain a sustained level of CBD in your system and promotes an effective endocannabinoid system.
According to the World Health Organization, CBD is considered to be safe even as high doses — although you don’t need extremely high doses to benefit. Although CBD is generally considered safe, it can cause adverse reactions like diarrhea and fatigue in some people. It may also interfere with certain medications. So if you are concerned, consult your doctor before using.
The following table from Medical News Today lists the method of administration and dosage of CBD that researchers have used to study its therapeutic effects on different medical conditions.
|Medical condition||Daily dose of CBD||Form|
|bowel disease||5 mg twice daily||sublingual (oil drops)|
|type 2 diabetes||100 mg twice daily||oral|
|pain due to cancer||50–600 mg per day||oral|
|Parkinson’s disease||75–300 mg per day||oral|
