SUBLINGUAL (CBD UNDER THE TONGUE)
Taking CBD not just orally, but specifically under the tongue is the most effective and most popular way to take CBD daily. This is because it absorbs readily under the glands of your tongue and in the areas between your cheeks and gums.
When you place drops of CBD under your tongue, they will bypass your stomach and intestines and go to your blood stream first. This means that your liver won’t metabolize and destroy CBD like it would if you just swallowed it.
INSTRUCTIONS: SUBLINGUAL (UNDER THE TONGUE)
Step 1- Shake well
Not so important if it hasn’t been sitting too long, but you’ll ensure an even and consistent dose if the tincture has been sitting and allowing the ingredients to settle. You can’t disrupt or hurt the ingredients in the oil so when in doubt, just shake!
Step 2- Draw up a full dropper
Draw up the dropper halfway buy squeezing the rubber teat. This is one serving (0.5ml)
Step 3- Administer a full serving under the tongue
It’s important to hold the oil under your tongue for at least 60 seconds, but if you can hold it for 2 minutes that would allow for even more absorption. The skin underneath your tongue is about the thickness of a sheet of notebook paper, and it takes a bit for the oil to seep through.
Important: Swish the CBD around after 2 minutes under the tongue
You have glands around your mouth that will help with absorption.
Step 4- Swallow the rest of the CBD oil after 2 minutes
Whatever is left of the CBD oil after 2 minutes, you can swallow. It has been proven that CBD ingested in fatty acids or fatty foods have 4x the absorption rate compared to an empty stomach, and our CBD is suspended in hemp seed oil, so that counts! You won’t absorb nearly as much through the digestive tract as you would under the tongue, so that’s why you should start off with sublingual.
CBD oil will enter the blood stream almost immediately when held under the tongue, and it will continue to trickle into the blood stream the longer you hold it under your tongue. It can take up to an hour for CBD to reach peak levels in your blood.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER You must try to hold CBD oil under your tongue for at least 60 seconds to ensure absorption. Most studies have shown it takes between 7 -14 days for CBD to consistently affect your endocannabinoid system (ECS). There is no point in taking CBD if you don’t know how to take CBD oil correctly, so now you know how to take CBD oil correctly you can enjoy the amazing holistic benefits.
