How should I use CBD oil?
For many years, people have been using CBD oil sublingually, which involves placing the oil under the tongue and letting it dissolve slowly for at least 10 minutes before swallowing.
This method allows the CBD to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes, providing a quick and efficient way to experience the effects of CBD.
However, since January 2019, legislation in the European Union and Switzerland has changed the way we recommend using our CBD oils. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) now considers CBD a "Novel Food", which has led to a ban on the sale of CBD products as food or drink. As a result, our CBD oils are not recommended for oral consumption.
Instead, our CBD oils are registered as cosmetics in the European Union, meaning they are intended for external use. Topical application of CBD oil allows the CBD to interact with cannabinoid receptors in the skin without entering the bloodstream. This method is ideal for individuals looking to target specific areas of the body.
When using CBD oil topically, simply apply a few drops of the oil to the desired area and gently massage it into the skin. This can be done multiple times a day, depending on your needs and the recommendations of your doctor.
When should you use CBD oil?
As for the best time of day to use CBD oil, this largely depends on your personal preferences and the reasons for using CBD oil. Some people find that using CBD oil in the morning helps them start their day on a positive note, while others prefer to use it in the evening to promote relaxation.
Remember, everyone's experience with CBD oil is unique, and what works best for one person might not work as well for another. It's always a good idea to start with a small amount of CBD oil and gradually increase it until you find the amount that works best for you.
