How To Take CBD?

The acceptance of Cannabidiol usage continues to gain momentum, especially for personal therapeutic, healing purposes. While professionals and scientists are continuing to develop and advance on dosing properties for alternative purposes, people continue to try a whole new level of CBD products and extracts.

As states continue to grow in number in legalizing medical marijuana, many physicians may still not jump on the CBD bandwagon, for these two reasons:

1 – Doctors can only recommend and not prescribe cannabinoids because research is still being conducted in the discovery of a universal dose for all body chemistries.

2 – Current medical schools that conduct pharmacology courses do not cover CBD/Cannabidiol therapy.

As a disclaimer,  we are going to disclose with you that this information provided is intended to serve only as an information guide and should not be considered as professional, and medical advice. 

All human bodies are composed differently and have different body chemistries.

Weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environments, product consistency, are varying reasons why we can all potentially benefit from a universally prescribed dose for CBD. Thus, if we were to share with you dosage advice, we would come up with a rough estimate, and you knowing your body most can be the ultimate decision-maker.

If you are new to the Cannabidiol experience we recommend that you begin your journey with a small suggested CBD dosage usually recommended on the product while gradually increasing the dosage to your liking.

Based on our revolving research and other competitors alike we discovered that usually, the CBD Oil serving standards start at 25mg twice daily.

Many reviewers and customers, competitors and frequent takers (based on our analysis and research ) begin increasing the amount of CBD intake every 3-4 weeks by 25mg until you obtain the desired effect. (If need to reduce, reverse the process for 3-4 weeks by reducing 25mg)

Moving forward, we recommend keeping a notepad with a daily record of your experiences to help accurately keep a steady flow of what works and feels best for you. 

Now let’s get started, in outlining how to find the right CBD oil dosage for you.

First things first become knowledgeable about CBD Products
CBD and other Phytocannabinoids come in endless forms, and each is constructed with different concentrations. To determine your choice of how to use CBD oil, you must first decide the best way to take CBD oil that best fit your needs and lifestyle.  


  • Liquid hemp oil, like CBD tinctures or CBD drops
  • CBD concentrated into a thick paste (often referred to as Rick Simpson Oil or RSO)
  • Encapsulated CBD oil
  • Phytocannabinoid-rich sprays/spritzers (generally designed for application beneath the tongue)
  • Bottled water containing nano-sized CBD particles
  • CBD-infused chewing gum
  • On-the-go dissolvable powders containing CBD (oftentimes blended with other adaptogenic herbs)
  • Cooking oils (such as coconut oil or olive oil) with added Cannabinoids
  • CBD-infused edibles (i.e., gummies, brownies, cookies, etc.; generally for individuals who are sensitive to smoking/vaping)


  • Crystalline isolates
  • Wax (similar to THC-containing marijuana concentrates called “shatter”)
  • CBD-rich eLiquids and/or vape cartridges (akin to an e-cigarette)


  • Transdermal patches with CBD (similar to a nicotine patch)
  • Cannabidiol-infused salves, balms, lotions, shampoos, or soaps (for topical use)
  • Bath bombs infused with CBD

Decide How to Use CBD Oil
Below listed, we have compiled the 3 most common ways to take CBD oil:

CBD Oil/Tinctures/Extracts
Drops or tinctures usually provide a “suggested serving size” and the total milligrams of CBD listed on their packaging, making it possible for you to determine your desired amount of CBD intake. For starters, one of the most effective ways to take CBD oil is to administer it sublingually. To administer your CBD Dosage of choice, simply life your tongue and place your desired number of drops in place for a minimum of 30 to 60 seconds. The 60-second hold allows for absorption via the blood vessels underneath your tongue – efficiently bypassing first-pass metabolism. Once 60 seconds have passed, swallow the CBD oil.

CBD Edibles
With edibles, the only required steps are open, eat, and enjoy! This method of consumption will result in more drawn-out effects that also take longer to kick in than some of the other options. Edibles are great for those seeking sustained effects, or for those who want to be subtle about their usage of CBDs.

CBD Isolates/Concentrates
Anyone familiar with smoking hash or other cannabis concentrates like wax and BHO will be no stranger to this delivery method. Simply sprinkle some into a vaporizer or water pipe, ignite, inhale, and enjoy! We find that this option is useful for individuals looking to elevate their regular consumption of CBD-rich cannabis flowers or other smokable herbs.

We at Hemped NYC are aware that research on the potential health benefits of CBD oil is still ongoing, as new therapeutic uses for this natural remedy are being discovered. Though there is still much to be learned about the efficacy and safety of CBD, results from recent studies suggest that CBD may provide a safe, powerful natural treatment for many health issues.

Is CBD Legal? Marijuana-derived CBD products are illegal on the federal level but are legal under some state laws. Hemp-derived CBD products (with less than 0.3 percent THC) are legal on the federal level but are still illegal under some state laws. Check your state’s laws and those of anywhere you travel. Keep in mind that nonprescription CBD products are not FDA-approved, and may be inaccurately labeled.

Medical Disclaimer: CBD oil is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. CBD oil can potentially interact with many prescription drugs, so please make sure to consult with your doctor/physician before starting to use any of these products, ESPECIALLY if you’re already on medication. This article is to be acknowledged for the research and potential benefits of CBD oil, and not expected to be regarded to cure your current health condition if you are experiencing any illnesses that need medical attention.
