How to Use CBD Tinctures
The most common way to use a CBD tincture is sublingually or under the tongue, which helps get the product into the bloodstream. This is an easier way for some people to take it than either pills or capsules. When you are first using CBD tinctures, it’s recommended to take them before bed as they often cause a natural relaxation.
Once you are more used to how CBD oil affects you, you may add another dosage during the day. You can add a few drops to a healthy smoothie, or onto a midday snack like hummus, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or a few drops sprinkled onto a yogurt.
There are different concentrations of CBD, measured by milligrams of CBD per milliliter. Most tinctures have a dispensing dropper with measurements printed on it to control the amount of dosage. Check instructions for how much of the dropper to use and place the liquid under the tongue. CBD tinctures are best absorbed when taken after a meal or with a high-fat snack, such as cheese or a serving of nuts.
You can also purchase CBD-infused coffee and tea, as well as CBD gummies. These can be a way to get a second dose of CBD during the day. What you should avoid is vaping with CBD oil, as vaping is now associated with many health dangers.
