How to DOSE using a tincture

One of the most convenient ways to use CBD is a tincture. A Tincture is simply a bottle of liquid that has your CBD oil in it with a carrier liquid such as MCT oil which we use.

Because everyone is different there is really not a perfect dosage. There are a lot of variables that go into how much you should be using such as:

-The concentration of CBD
-The weight of the individual
-The individual’s body chemistry
-Severity of what you are trying to treat

Knowing all of this there is not a one size fits all approach to using a CBD tincture. The best advice that we can give you is simply to start low and work your way up. Depending on the person with the above variables some people may not need very much and some people may need more. We understand that CBD is a costly thing so we want to ensure you are not using more than you need so your bottle can last you as long as possible.

Some people may see effects immediately while others may take a week. In some cases, depending on the person they may see no benefit, or maybe a tincture is not your best means of using CBD.

Typically your CBD tincture will be a 30ml bottle (ours are) and your dropper contains 1ml of liquid. A typical dosage is 1 full dropper (1ml) but we suggest starting at the lower end of things and working your way up. Try 1/4 of a dropper to begin with for a few days, if you need more increase this to half a dropper and keep increasing to a full dropper. If you are finding you need more than a dropper to find relief then you may need to move up to a higher MG bottle. The higher concentration would mean less liquid per dosage because it’s more concentrated.

If you do your own research and know you need a certain MG of CBD per dosage it’s pretty easy to do the calculation. If you have a 1000mg bottle which is 30ml in size you know that 1ml would contain (1000mg divided by 30(30 1ml droppers) = 33.33 mg per dropper). If you did half a dropper that would be (33.33 divided by 2 = 16mg).  This is a simple way of keeping track of how much CBD you are actually using.

The most accurate way of dosing is using capsules, you know exactly how many MG is in each capsule if you want to be as accurate as possible.

How to use a CBD TINCTURE

The best way to use a CBD TINCTURE is under your tongue (Sublingually). When taken this way the arterial blood supply under your tongue rapidly absorbs the CBD. We suggest holding it under your tongue for 1-2 minutes for best absorption, then you can swallow the solution.
