CBD Oil Serving Guide
The question, ‘How much CBD oil should I take?’ is a common one. The simple fact is that people use CBD for many different reasons and because of this, there’s no magical single serving size that is universally applicable. One’s gender, weight, age and whether or not they’re taking certain medications are all factors that should be taken into consideration before consuming CBD for the first time.
CBD oil is a dietary supplement and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you suspect you may be suffering from a disease, or are seeking help treating a disease, please contact a medical professional immediately for proper evaluation. Legally we cannot recommend a specific dosage, but we can give you the information that can help you decide.
Taking CBD Oil
Most CBD users prefer to take an oil tincture under the tongue (“sublingually”). This can be done with a dropper bottle or a spray. This allows the CBD to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the mucosa of the mouth; when these tinctures are placed under the tongue, they’re taken in by absorptive tissue and the entire digestive tract is bypassed.
CBD is always measured in milligrams, so no matter how you consume CBD oil – through edibles, smoking CBD-dominant flowers, capsules, vaping, or sublingually – you can still keep track of how much you’re ingesting.
To get the maximum absorption of your tincture, take your serving one hour before or after a meal so there is no interference with the absorption of the CBD oil. In general, you should start off with small amounts and move up from there after you know how your body reacts.

- For our 500 mg bottle, each dropper will contain 12.5 mg of CBD.

- A single drop from our 500 mg bottle will contain approximately .5 mg of CBD.

- When placing drops under the tongue sublingually, hold them there for 60-90 seconds for full absorption before you swallow.
