How to use CBD?
CBD in the oil drops form is usually taken orally – preferably by sublingual technique (in practice, you drip under the tongue, wait about ten seconds, let it dissolve and swallow). However, for skin problems, it can be applied directly to the skin. Dosage is also very individual and depends on many factors like body proportions or lifestyle. In general, we recommend to start with one drop and observe the effects. After that, the dose can be increased. The good news is that it is not possible to overdose on CBD.
Is CBD safe?
In general, CBD is considered to be a very safe substance that can be used in high doses without any negative effects (indications up to 1500 mg per day are tested as completely safe). However, it should be noted that the use of high levels of cannabidiol is not harmful, but indeed quite unnecessary, because the body eliminates the unused excess.
The World Health Organization has no record of health complications associated with CBD use. Very rare side effects may include mild tiredness, nausea, diarrhoea and changes in appetite. People with long-term liver problems should talk to their doctor about taking CBD.
