CBD oil may also increase liver enzymes (a marker of liver inflammation). People with liver disease should use CBD oil with caution, ideally under the care of a doctor who can regularly check blood liver enzyme levels.
Here are a few tips to help you find the best CBD oil:
To determine an exact dose of CBD, remember that each drop of oil equals 0.05 mL of fluid. This means that a 30-mL bottle of CBD oil will have roughly 600 drops. If the concentration of the tincture is 1,500 mg/mL, one drop would contain 2.5 mg of CBD (1,500 mg ÷ 600 drops = 2.5 mg).
In all but a few studies, lower doses of CBD (10 milligrams per kilogram, mg/kg, or less) improved some symptoms of anxiety. Higher doses (100 mg/kg or more) exhibited virtually no effect.
CBD oil may reduce the risk of heart disease by alleviating hypertension (high blood pressure) in certain people, suggests a 2017 study in JCI Insight.
CBD oil comes as full-spectrum oils or in forms that contain CBD isolates. Unlike isolates, which contain CBD only, full-spectrum oils contain a variety of compounds found naturally in the cannabis plant, including proteins, flavonoids, terpenes, and chlorophyll. Alternative practitioners believe these compounds offer more substantial health benefits, although there is no clear evidence of this.
Common symptoms include:
Taking CBD orally sends the cannabinoid through the digestive tract and liver before it enters the bloodstream. In the liver—an important metabolic organ—cannabidiol undergoes the first-pass effect and gets partially broken down.
• Meladol: This unique blend combines the soothing power of CBD with the regulatory influence of melatonin. Aimed at helping support a healthy sleep cycle.
• CBD Oil: Place our full-spectrum CBD oil under the tongue for around one minute before swallowing. This is how most consumers choose to take our CBD oil.
What do you need to know about oral CBD?
There are many different ways to introduce this versatile cannabinoid into the body, from adding CBD oil to drinks and food to inhaling clouds of cannabinoid-rich vapor. Each method exists to satisfy the particular needs of individual consumers, as not every intake method will be ideal for everyone.
The Cibdol range offers multiple oral CBD formulas. Our products feature varying strengths of CBD, and many of them infuse additional nutrients that add unique elements to each blend.
• CBD Isolates: These 99% pure CBD crystals dissolve rapidly under the tongue, sending large quantities of CBD into the bloodstream, though they do not carry the benefits of a full-spectrum oil.
• Liposomal CBD Oil: Liposomes are a form of nanotechnology that deliver active ingredients to their target cells and ramp up bioavailability. These small “pods” carry cannabidiol safely through the throes of the digestive tract and directly to their site of action.
