We recommend starting with a smaller quantity of CBD hemp oil. Then, you can easily increase the amount if you feel it’s not effective enough.

20% Full spectrum CBD oil: Frequently asked questions
1. What strength CBD oil to choose?
What strength CBD oil you choose is dependent on what you are using the oil for, the purity of the oils, as well as the weight and metabolism of the person.
CBD strengths of all levels produce beneficial effects. The strength CBD oil for beginners is recommended to be a lower strength dose, such as 10%. Beginners usually start with a lower strength level of CBD and increase in strength accordingly as their bodies get adjusted to the compound.
With higher strength oils, the higher its potency will be and thus the more effects it is going to produce. Therefore, taking a higher-strength CBD oil can be advantageous for those who are suffering from more intense conditions or heightened symptoms.
2. What do I need to know before doing CBD?
Before doing CBD you should consult your doctor to see if taking CBD is appropriate for you, won’t interfere with any medicine you are taking, as well as what dose you should take. You then need to work out the best strength and type of CBD product for you to take.
As CBD has some minimal side effects you should be aware of potential unwanted effects, such as fatigue, nausea and drowsiness. As well as how the compound is likely to make you feel.
If you are trying CBD for the first time, chances are that initially, you would feel tired or sleepy. But any CBD oil side effects that are due to the first use of the compound should dissipate over time as your body becomes more accustomed to taking CBD oil.
Also, it is important to know that CBD is non-psychoactive, therefore it doesn’t produce the feeling of being ‘high’ that is associated with other cannabis-derived products. After taking CBD oil, most people feel relaxed.
3. How much CBD oil to take?
When determining how much CBD oil you should take, you may first want to consider the strength and purity of the oils, as well as the weight and metabolism of the person. Those who are new to CBD usually start with a smaller amount and gradually go up as their body gets adjusted to the compound.
If you are unsure of the appropriate dosage or your doctor doesn’t recommend a specific dose, it’s best to start with a smaller quantity. Then, you can easily increase the amount if you feel it’s not effective enough.
4. Can you take CBD oil with blood pressure tablets?
CBD can interact negatively with different groups of medications, such as:
Beta-Blockers (metoprolol, acebutolol, betaxolol, etc.)
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (aspirin, diclofenac, ibuprofen, etodolac, etc.)
Anti-Seizure Medications (clobazam, acetazolamide, clonazepam, etc.)

5. How much cannabidiol isolate can you take in a day?
It is recommended that you do not exceed 70mg of cannabidiol isolate intake in any 24-hour period.
If you are unsure of the appropriate amount of cannabidiol isolate to take, or your doctor doesn’t recommend a specific dose, it’s best to start with a smaller quantity, such as 20mg to 40mg a day. Then, you can easily increase the amount if you feel it’s not effective enough, such as by 5mg each week, until you reach the right dose for you.
6. What is the best way to use cannabidiol isolate oil?
To use cannbidiol isolate oil, place it under you tongue, hold for one minute, then swallow. This is the best way to use cannabidiol isolate oil as taking it under your tongue has greater bioavailability. This is because cannabidiol is consumed sublingually via the blood vessels. Cannabidiol is easily absorbed through the thin mucous membranes underneath your tongue, it bypasses digestion to become more rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, directly, acting as a fast path to absorption. This means you can maximize the effectiveness and speed at which the cannabidiol works, thus helping you get the most value out of your cannabidiol isolate oil.
