If you are using CBD oil as your method of supplementation, a tincture is typically the type of product you will be using. A tincture is a liquid extract that comes from a plant or herb. It is intended to be used by mouth. They are very easy to use thanks to a dropper that usually comes with the product you have purchased. A little bit of research can help you with picking a dose that you want to start.
Often a manufacturer will give you a recommended for dosages based on the potency of their product. You may need to experiment a bit before you find the perfect dose. You will want to wait a few weeks in between changing your dose to ensure you’ve had enough time to adjust.
Make sure that you shake your CBD product well before using it, as separation is very common with CBD oil. If you don’t mix the product well, you could end up consuming mainly the carrier oil. It’s safe, but you won’t be reaping the benefits of the CBD.
Squeeze the dropper to fill up the pipette with the CBD oil. The product should be dispensed under your tongue where it should stay for about 60 to 90 seconds. At this point, you can swallow the CBD oil. Some people don’t like the earthy taste of CBD. You can take a drink afterward. You may also be able to find a flavored tincture. Some people choose to repeat this process one to three times per day.
