How To Use CBD 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 oil, a capsule, gummy or a soothing muscle balm.

How to Use CBD Oils

The best way to take CBD oils is to 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.

While some people might be put off CBD oils because of their supposed hempy taste, you can now find formulas with cleaner, brighter, more refreshing flavours. Our picks? – The Bright Days CBD Oil Drops, which are citrus-fresh, and the Night Time CBD Oil Drops, which offer a hint of peppermint.

Cannaray CBD Gummies

How to Use CBD Edibles

Taking CBD edibles such as CBD Capsules or CBD Gummies is simple. If you’re using our Bright Days CBD Capsules, you can swallow one with water daily, then adjust the amount as and when needed. Meanwhile, if you’re taking our CBD Gummies, chew one at a time for juicy, fruity goodness. The onset time may be slower than an oil, but the pre-measured dosage means you don’t even have to think about it

How to Use CBD Creams and Balms

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.

Finding Your CBD Dosage

CBD is processed differently based on genetics and lifestyle, so it’s important that you personalise your dosage based on how you respond as an individual. That’s why we recommend you start with a low application and build up gradually, finding a level that works uniquely for you – no one-size-fits all approach. We recommend using no more than 70mg per day.

When to Use CBD

There’s no wrong or right time to take CBD, but here’s a some tips to incorporate CBD into your daily routine, whether using our Bright Days or Night Time formulas.

Morning: Our Bright Days CBD oils, capsules and gummies don't contain caffeine so can be taken morning, noon or night. However, if you take your CBD in the morning and like a jolt of caffeine – then try adding a dropper of CBD oil to your daily latte, so you get the best of both worlds.

Evening: Our Night Time CBD oils are specially formulated to take in the evening, with a fresh peppermint flavour and added hemp oil. Here at Cannaray, we're also a huge fan of smoothing our CBD Muscle Balm into tired muscles at the end of a long day.
