If you're wondering why your CBD Oil Tincture is clear, it is because Coconut MCT Oil is clear. If you're familiar with a darker brownish looking CBD oil, you have likely been buying Hempseed Oil. The only issue we have with the Hempseed variety is that we found that most customers did not like the bitter after-taste of taking Hempseed Oil. Therefore, we decided to give customers a product that they would actually enjoy taking. At Eden's Herbals, we don't mind being different, just as long as the customer is happy!
How Is CBD UsedWhen a person takes the CBD compound directly from the dropper it is best to put the drops under the tongue. The drops should stay under the tongue for about one minute so the body can absorb the liquid. The body absorbs the tincture faster by putting it under the tongue instead of mixing it with any food or drink.
The sublingual artery under the tongue will absorb the tinctures and then it will travel to the external carotid artery and then travel to the internal carotid artery and lastly find its way to the brain. Through this mechanism, the effects of cannabinoid compounds can be felt in about fifteen minutes.
Average CBD DosingThe oil should be taken in very small doses as it is concentrated. It comes with an mL dropper in the bottle so people can measure their doses. Don't worry about taking too much, it won't harm you. However, we always recommend first time users begin small and work their way up. Most people do not need a huge amount in order to get relief. If a small dose does not give the person any relief then he or she can just take another drop or two. Everyone is different and doses tend to vary from person to person.
To gauge your proper dosage the individual should take into consideration the concentration of the oil used, the individual's weight, the individual’s body chemistry and the severity of the condition being treated. Dosage amounts will shift throughout a person's lifetime.
Do not go by what a friend is taking for a dosage. Individuals are all made differently. It will depend on what medication, supplements and other things that you put in your body as to what dosage is best for you. Start with an initial dosage that is based on your weight. See how your body reacts to the first dosage. If you feel you need more, then add a dose gradually and continue monitoring your bodies reaction. You will be able to find the right dosage that works for your situation by adding just a little at a time.
