The Best Ways to use CBD Oil

How to use our CBD Oil Tincture

and methods of application

Dr. Meredith Warner, Orthopedic Surgeon, designed this Broad Spectrum CBD oil tincture to be tasteless and contain cannabinoids – so you can harness all the benefits hemp-derived CBD oil has to offer, with none of the psychoactive properties. Our Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is blended with MCT Coconut Oil to give you as much potency as possible, with as few ingredients as possible.

How to take CBD Oil:
Topical Application


You can apply certain CBD oils topically, onto the body part of your choice. Its effects are localized to the site of application. You apply this by taking a small amount and rubbing it onto where you need it most – a sore shoulder, aching knees, etc. Try an inconspicuous spot first, and start with a low dose, gradually building it up over time and according to your needs.

You’ll want to start off with a low dose to make sure you have no adverse reactions. This is uncommon, but it’s better to be safe. Wait to use it on more sensitive areas, such as your face in a face mask, for example, until you know how your body responds to it. You may also wish to mix the CBD oil with a carrier oil like coconut to aid in absorption.

CBD, like essential oil, can have therapeutic benefits when used properly. Click here to read more about how to use essential oils in your wellness routine!

How to take CBD Oil:

internal applications

Some CBD oils, but not all, are suitable for ingestion. Be sure to check with the manufacturer to make sure you can add their CBD oil to anything you consume.

Taking CBD oil internally is simple! Put a few drops in your morning coffee or tea after it’s cooled, add it to lemon water for a pick-me-up, or mix it into a salad dressing. We recommend not putting CBD oil into a dish that would require high heat to make, such as baking or a sauteed meal. You can, however, put a few drops onto a dish right before you eat it, after it’s cooked. 

Heating CBD oil can reduce its effectiveness and change the flavor, so we recommend mixing it into no-bake recipes if you want to cook with CBD.

How to take CBD Oil:
Sublingual Dose


We recommend taking our CBD Oil Tincture sublingually, that is, under the tongue. This is the fastest way to absorb the benefits of CBD, as holding it in the mouth, or “swishing” it around to coat the insides of your cheeks, is the best way to coat your mouth’s mucus membranes. This allows CBD oil to be absorbed into the bloodstream more efficiently, for maximum effects.

  • A serving size for our product is a dropper full. Shake the bottle well and then uncap it. 
  • Fill the dropper, place it under your tongue, and depress the dropper. 
  • Hold under the tongue and/or swish around in your mouth for 30-60 seconds.

We recommend starting out with one dose a day and assessing how you feel. You may wish to increase the dosage to effect over time. A great time to take your CBD oil is right before bedtime, either sublingually or mixed with calming tea after it’s cooled. 

For even more ease of use, try our CBD Softgels. These capsules contain 25mg of CBD and can be easily combined in your daily routine with other topical or oral CBD products and vitamins!
