HOW TO USE CBD OIL & HOW MUCH

There are many factors that come into play when nailing down your optimal delivery method and dosage. For example, genetics, age, health, weight, circulation, and metabolism can all affect your body’s response to CBD oil. Furthermore, your unique endocannabinoid system will also impact how sensitive you are, thus impacting your dosage needs.

Let’s dive in below on delivery methods and dosage recommendations.

How Do I Use CBD Oil?

Each method of CBD oil consumption has a particular range of bioavailability, meaning how easy it is for your body to absorb. For example, the assumed bioavailability of CBD tinctures is twice that of edibles – anywhere from 10 to 40%. Let’s dive into each of the different methods.

HEMP OIL SMALL

Sublingually

Using a CBD tincture 1-2x/day is a favorite routine among many Loona customers. Used for thousands of years for therapeutic purposes, a CBD tincture is a liquid – usually with an oil base – infused with CBD oil. CBD oil tinctures are taken by mouth, under the tongue, and are usually absorbed pretty easily.

Research suggests that CBD is more effective if taken on a consistent basis. It may take 14 days to feel the impact. At Loona, we recommend taking your tincture in the morning for support with anxiety and stress. Then, taking another dose before bedtime to welcome your body into a state of calm and relaxation.

HEMP OIL

Orally

Using CBD oil capsules is an easy and consistent way to make CBD a part of your self-care routine. However, they do take longer to feel the benefits as compared to tinctures.

Loona’s softgels are formulated using a patent-pending water-soluble nanoemulsion technology that encapsulates the active compounds in nano-sized emulsions. The average size of the droplet is between 4 and 200 times smaller than the industry standard.

The smaller size leads to a much higher absorption rate, and thus, less is needed to produce the same results from other delivery methods.

HEMP OIL SMALL

Topically

CBD-infused topicals include creams, balms, salves, and oils. Similar to other broad and full-spectrum products, these products contain CBD in addition to other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. Furthermore, pain creams may contain anti-inflammatory ingredients meant to help the product penetrate deeper into tissues and aid in pain relief.

At Loona, our customers love to use our cream and salve on underlying muscles and joints. For Jennifer, Loona’s cream provides instant relief for sore muscles and joints.

Another great way to use CBD topically is to use it during a massage. This is a great opportunity to give your skin some extra love.

How Much for My Unique Body?

As mentioned above, how CBD impacts and communicates with your body will depend on genetics, height, weight, age, and metabolism. Also, the health of your endocannabinoid system is a factor.

And the end of the day, YOU will be the expert by noticing how you feel. Start small with high-quality CBD products. Gradually increase your dosage until you have reached your desired benefits.

Let’s dive in below.

Remember, there are a lot of CBD companies out there selling low-quality, ineffective CBD products. To learn more about what to look for before you buy, click the button below.

Stick With One Product & Brand

It’s a good idea to put some thought into which CBD product you’re going to use and stick with that product for a while. This allows you to gauge the effects of that particular product. If you switch back and forth between different CBD products and brands, determining a serving amount will be much harder.

HEMP OIL SMALL

Start Slow

When you first begin using CBD oil, it’s a good idea to start with a low serving size. This gives you a chance to determine your body’s reaction to CBD. One option is to start with 1mg of CBD for every 20 pounds of weight.  For example, if you are 100 pounds, start with 5mg. If you are 200 pounds, start with 10 mg.

HEMP OIL SMALL

Start Before Bedtime

When first using CBD, it’s best to start at night. That way, if CBD has a tendency to make you drowsy, you’re not dragging during the daytime. It’s uncommon for a low serving size of CBD to cause drowsiness, but it’s good to be sure.

If you have no issues, take another serving in the morning. If CBD oil does make you sleepy, then take it at night. At the same time, CBD oil may be used to support both nighttime sleep and daytime focus, in which case CBD can be taken as needed throughout the day.

HEMP OIL SMALL

Gradually Increase

If all goes well, but you have not achieved your desired benefits, you can try doubling your servings of CBD. Each time you increase your serving size, take a few days to make note of how your body feels.

If a rise in serving size of CBD produces unwanted effects such as making you drowsy, back off to a lower serving.
