Ready to embrace CBD? We look at various ways of incorporating CBD into your wellness rituals.
What CBD product should I use? Fundamentally there are 2 ways of using CBD:
- OUTSIDE IN - anything applied onto the skin, including topical products, creams, sprays & salves
- INSIDE OUT - anything taken in through your internal systems, including CBD oils ingested or absorbed under the tongue, digestion through capsules, effervescents or food & beverage products as well as inhalation through the lungs, like with CBD vapes and atomizers.
When it comes to finding the perfect CBD dosage, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. The dosage that works for you personally might be a completely different for someone else.
How much should I take?
For beginners, we recommend to start low and go slow. The legal recommended daily dose of CBD is 20mg. In terms of our broad spectrum and isolate CBD oils, this equates to 20 drops per day.
However, this is generally considered a conservative dosage by international standards. For context, in the USA it is 50mg a day. It is important to remember that everyone's biochemistry is unique, and like with all food, beverage, cosmetic and medical products, everyone will react differently to CBD and will find it effective in different dosages and to varying degrees.
For this reason you may find that your body needs more CBD than someone else, or you may find that it is not as effective as someone else finds it.
It is recommended that you see how your body reacts on whatever amount you feel comfortable starting with, and then adjust according to how you respond.
When should I take CBD?
How and when you administer this dose is entirely a matter of preference.
Half can be taken in the morning and half in the evening, or all can be taken at once. This dose can also be topped up at any time when necessary to treat an ongoing condition, if it flares up.
For best results, it is recommended that CBD be taken regularly and consistently at the same times each day. The full effect of it being incorporated into your routine can be felt after 7-14 days. However, CBD can also be used in isolation to treat situational conditions, and the effects will still be felt.
The most common way of taking CBD is ingesting it, typically through a few drops of CBD oil placed directly under the tongue (roughly 20 minutes to take effect) or mixed with food or a cold beverage (roughly 2 hours to take effect).
This is the best option for those wanting to treat an ongoing condition or concern in the long term, as after 10-14 days the CBD has fully adapted to the integration of CBD and is optimised to regularly restore homeostasis ("balance") in the body.
More recently, CBD atomizers (CBD vapes) have come to the fore as a socially applicable way to microdose frequently during the day, as they are convenient to carry around and the effects are almost instantaneous.
This is the best option for those wanting to treat situational issues, such as social anxiety or cigarette cravings, as the results are immediate. However, these effects are short lived and vapes do not offer sustained relief as a long term treatment option.
Get your daily dose of calm with convenience by mixing our water-soluble CBD powder into your favourite hot drink or smoothie.
Each box contains 20 CBD sachets and each sachet contains 10mg of CBD.
Recommended maximum daily dose = 20mg CBD (2 sachets).
Beverages, using water soluble CBD have been developed and require less CBD to achieve the same effect as other mediums due to its higher absorption rate and quicker activation time in the body
CBD also has a high absorption rate through the skin which is why its use has resulted in incredibly effective topical products for targeted, localised relief of various ailments. It also contributes significantly to general skin health.
This is the best option for treating a targeted area of pain or inflammation on the body, such as a sore ankle or eczema break out. For more chronic or acute conditions like arthritis, topical creams are recommended in conjunction with a daily dose of CBD drops.
