How to Take CBD Oil: A Guide To CBD Delivery Methods

Written By: Lane Giddings 

Recently, CBD has become increasingly normalized among mainstream society. You can find it everywhere from WholeFoods to your local gas station. Though every brand varies among the  level of quality, one thing remains true across the board: there are a variety of different ways to take CBD oil. Some of these methods are straight forward, but others seem confusing or intimidating to those unfamiliar with the product. Never fear, here is your guide on How to Take CBD.

CBD Tinctures

Tinctures are the more traditional and common form of CBD consumption. They’re also the most intimidating. When you buy tinctures, they come in a glass vial with a dropper. Similar to an essential oil or even a food coloring bottle. 

So when using the tinctures, the most frequently used and the most recommended way is orally. You do so by dripping the liquid from the dropper under the tongue. The dose depends on the potency of the CBD. 

For example, for the Maku brand you use one full tincture bottle (30mL) over a 30 day period, each day taking a dose of 1mL. Maku offers 4 different full spectrum CBD oil strengths: 500mg, 1000mg, 2500mg, and 5000mg

The strength you choose depends on the reason behind taking CBD. If you’re new to CBD and simply want to try it for the first time, we recommend you start with our 500mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture. However, if you are a Cannabis or CBD enthusiast and would like something with a little more of a punch, try our 2500mg or 5000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tinctures. Keep in mind that the dosage changes with different quality and brands. 

Tinctures can either be applied topically to the skin, or ingested. We recommend you hold the CBD Oil under your tongue for about 30 seconds, letting it absorb into your bloodstream, then swalloing the oil. You can also cook with it or mix it into your favorite beverage ;-)

Tinctures are the best method for those who need a quick way to take CBD. It helps in all ways because of it’s absorption into the bloodstream. Tinctures may seem intimidating, but they’re actually a really practical and effective method of taking CBD.


Full Spectrum CBD Capsules

CBD Capsules

Capsules are a straightforward and easy way to take CBD. Each one of Maku’s Full Spectrum CBD Oil Capsules hold 30mg of CBD Oil in them and are perfect for on-the-go. You take the capsule, put it in your mouth, and swallow it. Simple. Easy. Efficient. Use water or other liquid as necessary for the swallowing process.

With the Full Spectrum Capsules, it takes a little longer to feel the effects, usually 30-45 minutes. Your body needs time to digest and allow the capillaries in the digestive system to pick up the cannabidiol (CBD) found in the capsules. Capsules can be a great option if you’re looking for a long lasting experience with CBD. Our customers report that it works wonders for chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and stress.


CBD Gummies

CBD Gummies

Our Gummies are another great option as far as delivery methods go. I mean, who doesn’t love gummy bears, right!? Needless to say, it’s a straightforward way to take CBD. Essentially, you just chew and swallow the gummy. Nothing else to it. If you can eat, you can easily conquer this method of CBD use.

Each of Maku’s Vegan Gummies have 30mg of CBD and come in a 30 count bottle. Our CBD Vegan Gummies are made with Broad Spectrum CBD Oil which means they contain 0% THC. So if you’re worried about failing a drug test, or ingesting THC, worry no more. Our Vegan CBD Gummies might just be the relief you’re looking for. Try it out (#RPC).

They’re an excellent aid for those that have trouble falling asleep so they’ll fit right in with your nightly bedtime routine. No need to concern yourself with worries of morning grogginess, just good ol’ fashion deep sleep. We recommend starting with two 30mg gummies, which is a dose of 60mg of Broad Spectrum CBD about 30-45 minutes before bedtime.


CBD Vape Pen

CBD Vape Pen

Vaping has become increasingly popular as an alternative to cigarettes or nicotine addiction, but can also be used to consume CBD. The structure of the disposable CBD vape pen, like Maku’s 200mg CBD vape pen, is similar to the structure of disposable vape pens. 

The general idea is to pull through the mouthpiece and keep the vapor in your lungs as long as possible. However, unlike nicotine and other vapes, you don’t hit the pen as long. Usually no longer than 3-5 seconds per puff. One hit is essentially one dose of CBD so be careful not to overuse, you’ll find yourself getting drousy. Conveniently, this means the vape will last far longer! 

CBD oil in vape form immediately enters the bloodstream when you hit it as it has the highest bioavailablity. The quick absorption of CBD oil through vape pens allows it to be used for immediate stress and pain. It’s perfect for those who suffer painful flare-ups or panic attacks. The effects of the CBD will help in easing the pain and restoring the body to back full function. 

So never fear, though CBD oil can seem intimidating, it’s simple. The most important aspect is finding what method of CBD consumption works with your body and lifestyle. Then simply follow the instructions of your specific CBD bottle to ensure you take the proper dose. Remember to contact us if you ever have any questions, concerns, comments, or feedback.
