cbd for beginners blog

Our admiration for the hemp plant fuels our passion to provide the highest quality of hemp derived CBD products and at the same time to educate everyone we can. We realize that with so much activity currently happening in the hemp industry, many newcomers to CBD products have a lot of information getting thrown at them constantly. We’re here to help guide you in the right direction when it comes to accessing important hemp-related educational content.

In our previous blog, we talked about the differences between hemp seed oil and CBD oil – an important topic that has some consumers confused. The proper way to take CBD (and the right amount to take) is another factor that is oftentimes misunderstood. Keep reading as we detail some CBD products, and the correct ways to consume each of them.

Correct CBD Consumption: How to Get the Most out of Your CBD Experience

For those that are new to the hemp/CBD world, or even for those that are already familiar – the vast number of different products make it difficult to know exactly what you’re doing. Not to worry, novice or expert, it’s always good to brush up on these things to know precisely what you’re putting in your body, and how. Perhaps the most important piece of advice is to make sure you’re getting your products from trusted brands, with clear and transparent sources and ingredients.

The most common form of taking CBD is tincture oil. Place the CBD oil under your tongue, but try not to swallow it because its best access point is through the lipids under your tongue. We recommend massaging your outer gums to help it dissolve. It needs to go into the bloodstream where it will be distributed throughout your endocannabinoid system — which controls our muscular system, respiratory system, nervous system, cardiovascular and reproductive system, to name a few.

Your age, weight and current health will determine how much you need to take. If you are trying CBD for the first time, we suggest you start off with our 750ml CBD tincture. Start with .50ml, which is half the measured droplet that we provide with every tincture. You are looking for a relaxed feeling without any dizziness or ‘high’. You can take it twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. As you get more accustomed to CBD oil, you may up the dosage and potency.

Tinctures are an excellent option for the consumer that prefers ingestion instead of inhalation. To use, squeeze your desired amount under your tongue, swallowing after 60 seconds. We suggest starting with a single serving, taking it once or twice each morning or in the evening before bed.

CBD oral spray is a great product to have when you’re looking for on-the-go wellness. To use, simply spray under your tongue, hold for 60 seconds and swallow (as with tinctures.) We suggest starting with a single serving as needed, increasing at your discretion.

Topical CBD Cream

Topical CBD creams are ideal for people that maintain active lifestyles of all kinds. To use, gently massage the gel on your body’s problem areas – but, be sure to avoid your eyes. Starting with a small amount and increasing as needed is the proper way to consume creams.

CBD Edibles

Edibles such as gel capsules and CBD gummies are another great option for on-the-go self-care, as well as providing an alternate choice for consumers that don’t like to inhale hemp products. Starting with a single serving, take once or twice in the morning or in the evening before bed.
