How to Use CBD Oil: Best CBD Oil Uses & How Much to Take

The Best Types of CBD Oil Products for Beginners, Experienced Users, and Everything in Between

So you’ve decided to give CBD oil a try. You’ve browsed the options and read the available literature, but you’re still a little unsure of where to start. How exactly do you use CBD oil? What type should I choose? Choosing the ideal type of CBD oil for your individual needs can be daunting, especially given the myriad options available.

That’s why at PlusCBD Oil, we offer a variety of different types of products to suit the experience level and needs of every type of consumer.

Types of CBD Oil Products

For first time users of CBD oil, deciding upon a delivery method can be an overwhelming task. From drops and sprays to applicators and vaporizers, CBD oil comes in a variety of delivery methods.

Ultimately, the type you choose is dependent on a variety of factors, such as your experience level and the reasons for which you’re using cannabidiol. Below you will find a breakdown of how to use the various types of products offered by PlusCBD Oil to help guide you on your quest.

CBD Softgels & Capsules

If you’re a CBD beginner or simply want the easiest way to take it, softgels and capsules are the perfect option. The CBD oil is delivered in pre-portioned amounts, so you’ll always know exactly how much you’re ingesting. Furthermore, they can easily be added to your daily medication or vitamin regimen. If you take softgels or capsules but find the current dosage isn’t enough, you can supplement with tinctures or sprays to add to it in small amounts.

CBD Tinctures

Also known as drops, CBD oil tinctures are designed to be placed directly under the tongue (sublingual) or into the cheek. This allows it to be easily absorbed into the body and thus into the bloodstream more directly. Tinctures can come in a variety of flavors. Unflavored options are also available, which makes them suitable for addition to beverages.

CBD Sprays are also a type of tincture, and an easy and convenient way to take CBD oil with the lower concentration types being suitable for beginners. Like tinctures, they can come in a variety of flavors, are taken sublingually, and are ideal for those who want their CBD to go and in an easy-to-deliver form.

CBD Balms

A CBD Balm is a topical application that is easily absorbed into the skin while soothing and moisturizing at the same time. Unlike drops, sprays, and capsules, there are no specific instructions for dosage, but since the cannabidiol isn’t ingested, it doesn’t enter the bloodstream and can be used more freely. As a result, CBD balms are often used for moisturizing the skin and promoting relaxation.

Other Delivery Methods

Edibles: Most commonly associated with recreational cannabis products such as CBD gummies and chocolates, CBD edibles are a popular and easy way to get your daily dose of CBD. They can come in a variety of flavors, types, and doses, but aren’t without their drawbacks. Edibles, if not formulated properly, can often contain inconsistent amounts of CBD oil, as well as other additives such as sugar or additional fats.

Patches: Transdermal patches are a newer, more complex delivery but are ideal for those looking to dose for a longer period of time (up to 96 hours). Like topical CBD products, these can be applied to specific areas of the body; unlike balms, however, patches are typically a more concentrated form of CBD oil that is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

Vaping: Vaping is another popular form of taking CBD oil. It does, however, have its disadvantages. Vaporizers require an additional investment in the vaporizer itself, which can become costly depending on the type you buy. Furthermore, the quality of vaporizers varies greatly, with some cheaper options coming with the risk of contaminants or cheap parts that result in you inhaling unnecessary chemicals. Finally, it can’t be used as discretely as, say, a softgel or even a spray, as each puff is accompanied with a cloud of smoke.

Every Person is Different

Since everyone is different, we recommend starting with the smallest dosage possible and seeing how it affects you. From there you can work your way up to stronger doses and different delivery systems until you find a dosage and a type that suits your individual needs.

PlusCBD Oil Recommends starting with softgels or capsules and working your way up.
