The most common and effective method for taking CBD oil is to take it sublingually (drops placed under the tongue). However, they can also be added to food and drinks or even applied directly to the skin.
The optimal dosage for CBD differs from person to person and can depend on several factors including body weight, height and tolerance. If you’re new to CBD however, we recommend starting with a lower strength oil and taking around 1-2 drops per day. Continue at this dose for at least 2 weeks to observe how it works for you. If after 2 weeks you aren’t experiencing your desired benefits, consider increasing your servings or moving up to a higher strength.

If you live in one of the 22 countries that have approved GW ’s Sativex, a fifty/fifty CBD / THC whole plant under-the-tongue spray, you may qualify for a prescription. CBD -derived from industrial hemp grown in Europe is legal and available in the European Union. The Dutch Health Ministry distributes a CBD -rich cannabis strain to patients enrolled in the Netherland’s official medical marijuana program. The official Israeli medical marijuana program also grows and dispenses CBD -rich strains. Those who live outside the USA can also visit—or coordinate with a friend or relative in—Colorado or Washington, where cannabis is legal and available for personal use for those 21 years or older. How one elects to travel with or transport their medication, which is prohibited by federal law, is their own responsibility. High quality CBD -rich products are also available in California. In order to be in receipt of any California cannabis product one must be in possession of a valid medical cannabis recommendation letter from a California physician. Some patients and/or caregivers come to California and establish a temporary California residence to obtain a California ID . With this ID , they can see a California medical cannabis expert, get a letter of recommendation, and then obtain CBD -rich medicine. A number of patients and their families have relocated to cannabis-friendly states in order to access CBD -rich medicine on a consistent basis.

By the same methods one would use to make any kind of cannabis-infused edible. To make a CBD -rich brownie or another CBD -rich edible, one must first extract oil from a CBD -rich strain and infuse it into olive oil, coconut oil, butter or ghee (clarified butter). These infused oils or butters are the most common ways to cook with cannabis. One will need to combine the CBD -rich plant material (usually the leafy trim) with the oil or butter and expose to low heat over a long period of time—this will help to avoid breakdown and/or vaporization of the CBD and other cannabinoids. After straining out the plant material, one can substitute CBD -rich cannabutter or canna-oil into your favorite recipes. There are many extraction recipes and tutorials available on-line, including, for example, Le Blanc Cne.
Contrary to some rumors, a plant cannot be made CBD -rich if it lacks the right genetic make-up. The ratio of THC , CBD , and other cannabinoids is genetically determined, according to a study by biochemist Etienne de Meijer, Inheritance of the Cannabinoid Phenotype. A grower can, however, influence overall cannabinoid content by manipulating environmental factors—temperature, light, water acidity, and nutrients—that affect plant health.
CBD is metabolized into an analogous compound, 7-hydroxy- CBD , by the liver. Some 6- OH – CBD may also be formed. But scientists know relatively little about the activity (or lack thereof) of these compounds. There is strong evidence that CBD does not convert to significant amounts THC in the stomach.
