How to take CBD oil

The first time you get your new bottle of CBD oil is exciting but also a little overwhelming. There are so many different ways to benefit from the health and well-being properties of CBD. It takes just a little to get the endocannabinoid system up and running but what are the best ways to take CBD oil?

Eat it or drink it?

Adding CBD oil to your food, either in the morning before you start your day, or for supper before bed, you enable you to consume the CBD oil in the least intrusive way possible. The only problem is that consuming CBD oil this way is it isn’t particularly efficient. The oil gets bounced about in your liver while being metabolised and a lot of the benefits of CBD are lost. That said, some people really do not like the taste of CBD oil so this works for them. Try starting your day with a CBD infused coffee or porridge.

Under the tongue

Arguably, the best way to take CBD oil is to place drops under the tongue.  When you hold CBD oil under the tongue the membranes in your mouth absorb the CBD and fatty acids much quicker and more effectively than through the digestive system. It is fast-tracked into your system and by-passes the liver. A really good hemp oil infused with CBD leaves a light, nutty taste in your mouth. 


Vaping CBD is all the rage at the moment. Because your lungs are a huge absorptive surface area, the CBD can be directly absorbed into the bloodstream. We do not recommend vaping CBD oil as we sell it and do not sell vape products,

Face wash, salve or cream

We know that CBD-infused hemp oil is rich in vital natural vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids which are essential for skin health. Applying the CBD oil topically is absolutely one of the best ways to take CBD oil if you are not comfortable with any of the other means of consumption. Simply add a few drops to your moisturiser or facewash and allow the oil to promote repair. Another great alternative is turning your CBD oil into a  salve or lip balm.
