How to use CBD - A beginners guide 🌿

If you’re wondering how to take CBD, there are three things you need to consider: the desired effect, the types of products to try, and the dosage best suited to you.
That’s why we’ve created this ‘how to take’ guide for beginners and pros alike – featuring tips on using an CBD oil, CBD capsules, CBD gummies or a soothing CBD muscle balm.
How to Use CBD
If you're new to CBD, the best and most popular way to take CBD is as a CBD oil, although CBD gummies and CBD capsules are quickly growing in popularity.
Taking CBD oil is quick and easy; simply apply it sublingually, which means you squeeze it directly underneath your tongue (usually with a dropper). Hold it there for around 90 seconds, allowing it to absorb, and the oil will fast-track its way into your bloodstream.

How to Use CBD Oil Drops
Onset: 5-20 minutes
Duration: 3-6 hours
With the highest bioavailability of all of our CBD products, Our Broad or Full spectrum oi drops are your go-to for quick, direct application. Squeeze a few drops under your tongue and hold for 90 seconds for maximum absorbency. 
We recommend starting on a few drops, then levelling up or down as and when you feel like it.
How to Use CBD Edibles
Taking CBD gummies such as Sour bears or Vegan domes is simple. Chew one at a time for juicy, fruity goodness. The onset time may be slower than a CBD oil, but the pre-measured dosage means you don’t even have to think about it.
How to Use CBD Gummies
Onset: 15-60 minutes
Duration: 4-6 hours
The CBD Gummies are a juicy and fruity vegan chew — perfect for taking on the go. The CBD Gummies aren’t just fun and delicious; each gummy is packed with our gold standard Broad Spectrum CBD oil and natural flavours.
How to Use CBD Capsules
Onset: 15-60 minutes
Duration: 4-6 hours
The CBD Capsules are packed with immunity supporting vitamins in an easy-to-measure dosage – ideal for first-time users. Take two per day at first (each capsule contains 25mg CBD) and adjust accordingly.
How to Use a CBD Balm
It’s widely known that a massage can benefit sore, achy muscles, so why not add a CBD topical to this daily soothing ritual? Try applying the CBD Muscle Balm to shoulders – or anywhere you’re feeling some tension – starting with a generous scoopful smoothed liberally onto skin. The scent of eucalyptus is instantly calming.
