How to Use Full Spectrum Oil

You can use CBD oil in different ways. But as a guide for CBD oil, I suggest my clients use it sublingually. Here is how you do it:

Step 1: Shake the Oil Well

Give a good shake to the bottle before use. This helps the different components of the oil get mixed properly. One primary reason for shaking is that components can settle at the bottom of the bottle between doses. 

Shake the Oil Well

When shaken properly, the liquid will be mixed and ready to go. As full-spectrum oil can contain different components like CBD, CBG, CBN, THC, and more, it is essential that you shake the oil before using it. 

Step 2: Decide on the Dosage

Once you have shaken the oil, it is important to decide on your dose. Responsible brands like Cowgirl Soss will provide dosing  instructions on the label. How do you know which companies are responsible? Check this article for CBD product buying tips for beginners.  

Decide on the Dosage

The most important advice is to always start with a low dose of CBD oil. There is, in fact, no universal guide on how much CBD is recommended for you. Based on the manufacturing process, different companies recommend different dosing measurements. Do not take more than the recommended dose without professional advice.

Step 3: Use the Dropper

Most CBD oils come with a dropper. Ideally, the dropper will have measurement lines on it so you can properly fill the dropper according to the recommended dose.

Use the Dropper

Using the dropper is quite easy. 

  • Squeeze the rubber bulb at the top of the dropper to create a vacuum. 
  • Insert the dropper into the bottle and submerge the tip into the oil.
  • Release the bulb to allow the dropper to fill with CBD oil. 
  • Pay close attention to the measurement lines on the dropper to ensure you are not taking more than recommended. 

Step 4: Put the Oil Under Your Tongue

Check again to make sure you have measured the correct dose of oil. If you have filled the dropper higher than needed, simply squeeze to release the extra amount.

Put the Oil Under Your Tongue

Check the dose again. 

  • Lift your tongue to create a small gap underneath it.
  • Squeeze the bulb of the dropper gently to release the CBD oil under your tongue. 
  • Hold the oil under your tongue for thirty to sixty seconds before swallowing

Step 5: After dosing 

Make sure to seal the bottle tightly and screw the cap back onto the bottle. You can wash the dropper to keep it clean. Let it air dry to prevent contamination. 

Factors to Remember When Using CBD Full Spectrum Oil

How to use full-spectrum oil? We have guided you through the process. It is an easy-to-follow set of instructions.

Factors to Remember When Using CBD Full Spectrum Oil

However, there are some factors to keep in mind while using the product:

  • Keep track of your CBD intake. The best practice is to keep a journal and chart your consumption. 
  • Rinse the dropper with warm water to remove any potential contaminants or residue from the previous use. 
  • While taking full-spectrum oil sublingually, avoid touching the dropper to your mouth. This will reduce the chance of contaminating the entire bottle. 
  • After using the product, make sure to store it properly. Store the oil at room temperature. Keep the bottle out of direct sunlight. 
  • If taking Full-Spectrum CBD for the first time, be cautious and let your body get used to it. Since your body is experiencing CBD for the first time, give it some time to adjust. 
  • Drink extra water. CBD can sometimes lead to dry mouth. 

How Much Full-Spectrum CBD Oil Should You Take?

Since you now know the best way to consume full-spectrum CBD oil, it is now time to move on to the dosage. As mentioned earlier, dosing recommendations are dependent on the manufacturer. 

How Much Full-Spectrum CBD Oil Should You Take

Different brands use different extraction processes. The hemp may be grown differently and collected from different places. These things contribute to dosing recommendations. The most important thing is to purchase your full-spectrum oil from a reputable and trusted brand. Then, you can feel comfortable following the dosing instructions provided on the label. 

The Best Time to Take Full Spectrum Under Your Tongue

Now that you know how to use Full-Spectrum Oil,  when is the best time to take the oil? Well, it depends on why you need the CBD. Your reasons for using the oil are important in deciding when to take it. Here are some examples for you: 

1. You Can Take It in the Morning

The morning use of CBD can help you start the day on a high note. Taking CBD in the morning can reduce stress levels. You can go to work feeling calm and focused. This can change your day from one filled with dread to a day full of productivity and positivity. Full-spectrum may save the day for you. 

2. Use Full-Spectrum in the Evening

Do you have problems sleeping well at night? Whether the problem is caused by insomnia or other issues, full-spectrum CBD can help. CBD can reduce stress, and pain and prepare you for restful sleep. Try Sleep Soss for a deep delta sleep every night. 

CBN and CBG are two important cannabis compounds that are known for their sedative effects. If combined, CBD and CBN, work in tandem to make your eyes heavy so you can get to sleep. The presence of THC in the full spectrum can also improve your sleep quality. 

3. Using Full Spectrum in the Afternoon

Full-spectrum CBD dosing can also happen in the afternoon. Many people suffer from chronic pain and stress. Dosing mid-day can make you feel better so you can get through your day and feel proud of your accomplishments. 

Benefits of Taking Full-Spectrum Oil Products Orally

The sublingual method is the most effective way of consuming CBD. However, some people do not enjoy the process. If you are one of those people, think of the benefits below and maybe that will persuade you to use this method. 

1. Faster Onset of the Oil

When you take any substance under the tongue, it gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This is because there are numerous blood vessels under the tongue. Since the CBD gets into your bloodstream quickly in this process, you get the benefit of the fastest relief from discomfort.

What is your need for taking full-spectrum oil? Is it to get relief from pain and inflammation? Then, the quicker the oil mixes with your bloodstream, the quicker you get relief. This is why we suggest using our full-spectrum products sublingually. 

2. Higher Bioavailability

High bioavailability is another benefit of taking full-spectrum oil sublingually. Bioavailability is the portion of a substance that actually gets absorbed by the body. A higher number means more of the substance is absorbed, leading to increased relief.

Because of the presence of blood vessels under the tongue, CBD oil can easily reach the bloodstream. As a result, the relief comes quicker and the results are stronger. 

3. Reduced Risk of GI Issues

A small percentage of individuals may experience irritation, discomfort, or nausea when taking CBD. This results from the interaction between CBD and the sensitive lining of the stomach and intestines. You can bypass this process by consuming the oil sublingually. This method allows the oil to mix with the blood directly. The oil does not have to travel through the stomach. 

Alternative Ways to Take Full Spectrum Oil?

If you ask me the best way to take full-spectrum CBD oil, I say the sublingual method is the best. Some might suggest adding CBD oil to your food, but at Cowgirl Soss, we do not suggest that method. 

Alternative Ways to Take Full Spectrum Oil

You can add CBD oil to your food if you want. But, you will not find any such product on the market. This is because the FDA has not legalized adding CBD to food and selling it as a dietary supplement. 

You can add CBD oil to any type of food, desserts, smoothies, coffee, salad dressing, etc. Just be aware that this method is less effective and takes longer to work than the sublingual method. 

What is the Difference Between FSO and Distillate?

You may wonder why you should use full-spectrum oil instead of distillate. Both types of CBD products can be helpful for your health. You should base your decision on the one that is more convenient for you. Check the following table for a detailed comparison:

Store your CBD oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Keep it in its airtight, original container to prevent air and light exposure. Ensure it’s stored in a dry environment and away from children or pets.

How Much CBD Should I Take?

The ideal CBD dosage varies based on factors like body weight, tolerance, and the condition being addressed. We always advise to start with a low dose and gradually increase it as needed.

Can I drink or eat immediately after taking CBD oil? 

You should wait 15-30 minutes after taking CBD oil sublingually to allow for absorption under the tongue. Eating or drinking immediately afterward may dilute the oil and reduce its effectiveness. However, once the oil is absorbed, you can consume food or beverages as usual.

Can you cook with full spectrum oil?

Yes, you can cook with full-spectrum CBD oil. When using it in recipes, avoid high temperatures to preserve the cannabinoids and terpenes. It’s best to add the oil to dishes just before serving, like in salad dressings or drizzled on cooked food.

Using full-spectrum CBD oil involves mindful dosing and administration. Sublingual ingestion is the best method, allowing for rapid absorption while harnessing the benefits of the entourage effect. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to use full-spectrum oil as instructions vary by manufacturer. 

Start low and go slow with your dosage, adjusting as needed. It’s wise to consult a healthcare professional for advice. Keep your oil stored in a cool, dark place to keep it fresh and safe. We hope your experience with full-spectrum CBD oil is outstanding. All the best!
