If you’re new to cannabidiol oil or CBD oil, it can be overwhelming to try to make sense of all the different terms and options. From determining the right dosage to choosing between tinctures or cartridges, there’s no reason to be intimidated. Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to use tinctures and cartridges.
How to Take a CBD Tincture
Taking a CBD tincture sublingually (under the tongue) is one of the most potent applications of CBD. Tinctures are super concentrated and should be in minimal doses. Here’s how to dosage a CBD tincture sublingually:
STEP 1: Squeeze the rubber top of the dropper to collect the tincture. Most come with a built-in dropper. If the one you have doesn’t, you can use an eye dropper.
STEP 2: Tilt your head back slightly, open your mouth, and lift your tongue.
STEP 3: Drop the appropriate amount of the liquid underneath your tongue. The amount of CBD you should take will depend on factors such as your weight, type of tincture, and why you’re taking CBD. However, 3-5 drops are how much most people consume.
STEP 4: Let the liquid sit under your tongue for 30 seconds to a minute and a half. Taking CBD sublingually allows you to feel the effects of CBD the fastest because there are capillaries in your mouth and dropping the CBD tincture under your tongue will enable it to go directly into your membranes and the bloodstream.
STEP 5: Swallow the rest. Don’t worry, anything that doesn’t get absorbed under your tongue will go into your digestive tract.
There’s also the option of putting CBD tinctures in your food or drinks. However, infusing a few drops in your soup or morning coffee, the effects are not as immediate as when you take it sublingually.
How to Use CBD Oil Cartridges
If you already know how to use a vape pen or are interested in trying them, cartridges are the perfect way for you to take your CBD. Cartridges are cylindrical vape tanks that are pre-filled with CBD distillate. Most vape pens are composed of a battery, heating chamber/atomizer, mouthpiece, a charger, and use sub-ohm oils.
Here’s how to load your vape pen with CBD cartridge:
STEP 1: Remove the cartridge from the battery and unscrew the mouthpiece.
STEP 2: Screw in the pre-filled CBD oil cartridge. Screw back onto the battery.
STEP 3: Turn on the vape pen.
STEP 4: Adjust the heat.
STEP 5: Press and hold the button and inhale.
These are directions for standard vape pens or e-cigarettes. Not all vape pens will have a button and will have an “auto draw” feature, and all you have to do is inhale.
