Every other method of consumption will result in some percentage of the CBD becoming unavailable to the body for various reasons, such as getting trapped in fatty tissues or metabolized (broken down) before it has a chance to enter the bloodstream. Each method of CBD oil consumption has a particular range of bioavailability.

 

How to Use CBD?

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

Always Start With a Low Serving Size

For beginners, when you first start using CBD oil, it’s always 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 1 dropper, if using 500 mg tincture or ½ a dropper if using 1000 mg tincture.

Start by Taking CBD before Bedtime

When you first start using CBD oil, it’s best to start at night — about an hour before bedtime. If CBD was to make you drowsy, you’re not experiencing it during the daytime. It’s uncommon for a low serving size of CBD to cause drowsiness, but it’s always a good practice to make sure. If you have not experienced any issues, then take another serving in the morning. If CBD oil does make you sleepy, then take it at night only. Often CBD oil is used to support both nighttime sleep and daytime focus, it can be taken as needed throughout the day.

If you have not achieved your desired results, you can increase your servings gradually. Each time you increase, take a few days to make a note of changes to how your body reacts.

If a rise in serving size produces unwanted effects, reduce back to a lower previous serving.

 

How Can I determine Which CBD Product is Best For Me?

It really depends on the purpose of taking CBD and the other conditions.
