How To Use CBD Oil

by Michael Saly 21 Jun 2023

Thinking of trying CBD oil? Since their legalisation in Ireland, CBD products have continued to grow in popularity amongst people who are curious about the health and wellness benefits that they can offer. If you are new to CBD oil then you might feel slightly overwhelmed with the myriad of options available to you. In this guide we list the different ways of how to take CBD oil and the types of products available on the market.

Ways To Take CBD Oil

With numerous ways to take CBD oil, where should you start? Firstly you should check the strength of the CBD oil that you are using. For example, our Hemp Heros 15% CBD Oil contains 1500mg of full spectrum CBD. With this strength, we recommend placing one drop of oil on your tongue, holding for 60 seconds and then swallowing. Of course, this is just one way to take it – let’s run through some others.

In a CBD Tincture

Simply translated, tinctures are liquid herbal extracts meant for sublingual or oral consumption i.e. CBD oil from a spray or dropper administered directly into your mouth. When consuming it in this fashion, experts recommend that you take it sublingually, which means placing it directly under your tongue, and holding it for 60 seconds. Hemp Heros 5% CBD Oil is the perfect product to get you started.  

In a CBD Capsule

Another easy way to take CBD oil is by consuming it in capsule form. Taking CBD capsules will ensure that you are taking the exact same serving every time. One thing to note when consuming it in this way is that they will not take effect as quickly as CBD tinctures. With CBD capsules, results may not be felt for up to 30 minutes.

In a Smoothie

Who doesn’t love a smoothie in the morning? The good news is that you can easily incorporate CBD oil into your smoothie by adding half a teaspoon to your mixture. Perfect for people that want to introduce a sense of calm to hectic mornings.

How to take CBD oil in Coffee

Love coffee, but don’t love the extreme rush of energy you feel after drinking it? Thankfully, there is a solution which will allow you to enjoy your coffee without feeling jittery. Try our Hemp Heros CBD Coffee Drops which come in 10ml (250mg) or 30ml (1000mg) full spectrum CBD. We recommend using these drops once a day by simply popping them into your favourite coffee.

CBD Vape Pen

While the long-term effects of vaping are still relatively unknown, using a CBD vape pen is a good option for those that want a quick way of feeling the effects of the CBD.

CBD Muscle Balm

If you find yourself regularly suffering from muscle or joint pain, then CBD muscle balm could offer the relief that you need. Our Hemp Heros CBD Muscle Balm is full of natural ingredients which will leave your skin feeling nourished and healthy. Simply apply using fingers and massage into skin.
