What’s the Best Way to Use CBD?
CBD interacts with your body’s nervous system in the brain and throughout the body. The most appropriate delivery system for CBD is one that provides an optimal experience for you personally.
Although CBD products can be taken under the tongue, inhaled, ingested, or applied topically, most people prefer forms of delivery that are easy, customizable, and can be used with flexibility.
For this reason, we’ve concentrated on products that allow for that flexibility with Tinctures, Rollerball Blends, Lotions, Salves, Softgels (Capsules) and Gummies.
When using our CBD-rich products for the first time, we recommend starting slow.
Apply the product to a small area and wait several hours to test for sensitivity. Be careful not to overdo it.
Ready to use the product less sparingly? Apply lotion more freely and allow it to absorb into the skin. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary, adjust the ratio or amount.
You may apply it to any area of the body, but avoid contact with the eyes, mucous membranes and especially sensitive areas of the skin.
Estimating dosage based on body weight is a great place to start.
In general, 3-6 mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight is a good guide. Choose a higher amount of CBD to address a higher level of pain.
An individual who weighs 100 lbs. would take between 16-33 mg per dose.
One who weighs 150 lbs., between 25-50 mg per dose.
A 200 lb. person should consider between 33-66 mgs per dose depending on the level of pain.
Begin with a smaller amount of CBD and increase the dosage gradually. Going by weight alone will not be perfect. Because no two people have identical metabolisms, are taking the same medication or are in the same physical condition, how CBD reacts with your body will be different than with others.
Stair-stepping and monitoring the effects of each amount will allow you to determine the perfect amount for your needs.
How much is in a dropper?
The typical dropper holds 1ml of fluid. Take the total amount of CBD in the container divided by the amount of milliliters in the container. This will equal the amount of MGs of CBD in a dropper.
Doing the math:
N8 Essentials Tinctures are all packaged in 30 ml containers.
For a 500 mg strength Tincture, the formula would look like this:
500 ÷ 30 = 16 mg of CBD per dropper.
For a 1500 mg strength Tincture:
1500 ÷ 30 = 50 mg of CBD per dropper.
If your dosage is 25 mg, simply take half a dropper.
Purchasing a higher MG amount Tincture allows for the greatest amount of dosage flexibility and may reduce the need to purchase different strengths while you determine the perfect CBD amount for your needs.
The CBD oil (Natural 1000 mg Tincture) has relieved pain in my shoulder.-Michael S.
I love having the Digest Blend Essential Oil going in my kitchen and dining room while cooking and eating.-Caitlin W.
I received this (Nature’s Relief Broad Spectrum Lotion) as a gift from my husband and I honestly can say this is one of the best things he has gotten me. Not only does it moisturize, it relives the aches and pains I have in my hands and wrists due to carpal tunnel. The scent is pleasant and not overpowering.-Brendy
