How to Get the Most Out of Your CBD Oil
We want you to get the most out of your CBD. So, we’ve rounded up our top tips to help you have the best possible experience.
Here’s some of the top things that you need to know.
Understand What CBD Can Help With
Early studies and animal models have shown that cannabis-derived oils may be helpful for a number of medical conditions. However, due to decades of government prohibition of cannabis, we don't have many high-quality clinical studies that support or expand on these claims.
In surveys, Sunsoil customers most commonly report that CBD oil helps relieve pain and inflammation, sleep issues, and stress.
While CBD is generally considered to be a safe product (when it comes from a reliable brand), it's best to first consult with a healthcare professional to determine if CBD could be beneficial for your specific health concerns.
Go Full-Spectrum (If You Can)
The hemp plant contains hundreds of cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds. Depending on what you're buying, "CBD oil" can contain a lot more than just CBD.
What we generally refer to as "CBD oil" actually comes in three different forms: full-spectrum hemp extract, broad-spectrum hemp extract, and CBD isolate.
Full-spectrum hemp extracts like Sunsoil contain the natural array of compounds found in hemp. Broad-spectrum hemp extracts are specially processed in an attempt to eliminate the THC. Finally, isolate products contain only CBD.
"Start Low and Go Slow"
CBD is personal. Each of our bodies reacts differently to cannabinoids such as CBD. Therefore, it's important to start with a lower serving and gradually increase until you find what works for you.
Most Sunsoil customers report taking 20 mg of CBD per serving – but some people take more and some take less.
Additionally, customers who use Sunsoil specifically for sleep generally report taking larger servings of CBD oil.
If you’re new to Sunsoil, start with a 20 mg serving, then increase your serving size as needed. (We recommend waiting 4-6 hours before taking another serving.)
Adjust Frequency as Needed
The frequency with which you take CBD can also be tailored to your needs.
Taking CBD once a day may be sufficient. However, if you find that CBD provides benefits throughout the day, you may get better results taking it multiple times a day.
Keep a journal of your CBD use and its effects so that you can identify what's best for you. The goal is to find the minimal viable serving that gets you the benefits that you're after.
Understand the Label
Take a look at the front of your bottle. Our labels state how much CBD is in each serving (either one full dropper, or one spray), as well as how much CBD is in the full bottle.
Most of our products contain 20 mg of CBD in a single serving, whether that's 1 capsule, 1 gummy, or 1 dropper.
We do also have Extra Strength drops available, which contain 40mg of CBD per 1ml dropper.
Give It Time
Some people feel the effects of CBD the first time that they take it.
But for some of us, it can take a few days or even weeks for the benefits to become noticeable.
We recommend sticking with a daily regimen for at least 14 days before assessing the impact of CBD on your body. The process can be gradual, and it’s normal not to notice a change at first. Stick with it.
Hold It Under Your Tongue
If you've purchased CBD in a liquid format, hold the CBD oil under your tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing.
This is the most effective way to take drops or sprays, because it promotes absorption of CBD directly into your bloodstream.
If you find the taste of your CBD to be too intense, take a small sip of water before you swallow.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask
CBD isn’t one-size-fits-all, and it’s common to have questions when you’re starting out. If there’s anything you’d like to know, please don’t hesitate to ask. Just write us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and our team will be happy to help.
