How Is The Best Way To Take CBD Oil – Alternative Ways To Use CBD

How Is The Best Way To Take CBD Oil

Hi everyone Dale here and with today’s article I wanted to answer a few questions I have been getting lately from people asking me about how is the best way to take CBD oil and also I wanted to share with all of you some alternative ways you can use CBD.


CBD Oils are relatively new for a lot of people, so hopefully, by the time you finish reading this article, you will have a clear understanding of not only how to take it but of other ways you can also use it for many different health issues you may have.



How Is The Best Way To Take CBD Oil

For those of you who are new to the health benefits and have just been introduced to CBD the best way to take it is under your tongue. Depending on what strength you are using place 10 to 20 drops under your tongue and let it set for 15 to 30 seconds before swallowing.


It is recommended to take it at least twice a day. You can do the first dose when you wake up and the second dose before you go to bed for a good nights sleep.


CBD oil comes in several strengths and usually in two different forms. You can purchase it either as a Full Spectrum (Broad Spectrum) or as an Isolate.


  • Full Spectrum


Full spectrum has all the cannabinoids including a tiny amount of THC. But you are not going to get high by taking it because it contains less than .03% to comply with the legal laws.


  • Isolate


Isolate has several of the cannabinoids without the THC. So depending on what health issue you are using it for might determine which strength and which type you want to use.


  • Something to keep in mind!


There are no guarantees that you will pass a drug test using either one depending on how extensive the drug analysis is so you might want to inform your employer that you are taking CBD oils for health reasons.



Other Ways You Can Use CBD Oil

I’m not sure how many people know this, but if you have a headache, you can rub the CBD oil on your temples to help alleviate the pain or anywhere else you might have some discomfort.


Another thing I recently discovered is putting it directly on Shingles, and if you have ever had them, then you know how painful they can be. So CBD oil can be applied topically, and it will absorb through your skin.


One more thing I discovered is you can apply CBD oils to areas like your wrists and ankles where the skin is much thinner instead of directly on the pain center, and you can still get results.



Can You Vape CBD Oil

I’ve had a lot of people ask me about vaping CBD oil so I will explain the reason why you shouldn’t try vaping CBD oil. The CBD oil is much thicker than vape juice. Therefore, it is not recommended trying and vape it.


There is a CBD vape juice available for people who would like that as an option, and it might be called CBD vape oil instead of E-juice, but it is much thinner.



CBD Pain Creams With Emu Oil

If you are a person who doesn’t like taking CBD oil or vaping, then there are a few more options such as sprays, gummies, and creams.


CBD and Emu oils both have anti-inflammatory properties which make the pain cream a good option if you have joint pain and stiffness and would rather not take the CBD oil orally.


I personally like the pain cream, and it only takes just a little to get good results.



Is CBD Safe To Take With Other Medications

Even though there are no known adverse side-effects testing is still in the early stages so it would be advisable to monitor yourself closely while taking other medications.


If you have diabetes be sure and keep a check on your blood sugar because CBD is reported to help support healthy blood sugar levels and if it starts to lower your sugar you would need to get your doctor to reduce your medications.


High blood pressure is another thing you would want to keep a close watch on because I have a customer who says it lowered her blood pressure and she had to play with the doses to figure out what worked best for her.


Usually reducing your blood pressure would be a good thing if it was high but hers was already low, to begin with. My customer started taking the CBD oils for Fibromyalgia pain.



Not All CBD Oils Are Created Equally

  • Buyers Beware!

CBD is a huge and growing by day market, and it is only going to continue to get bigger. If you are one of the thousands who are already buying CBD Oils for health reasons or for your pets you need to watch this video!



All of the products on my site are third party lab tested and what is on the label is exactly what is in the product. So just be careful when purchasing CBD, and for the many of you who have tried it and discovered it wasn’t helping you it was probably an inferior product.



CBD Dosage Recommendations

I think the average recommended dose is 20 drops under your tongue twice a day depending on the strength. I would recommend only starting with 5 to 10 drops to see how your body is going to react to taking the CBD Oil.


Some people may need less and others more but if you start with a lower than recommended dose you can always increase later if need be if there are no adverse effects.


I usually recommend to people to try out the 500mg Isolate first without the THC, and most people respond well to it, but then I have had other customers who needed the full spectrum at 1500mg. To get the results they were looking to achieve.




In closing, I want to mention I am not a medical doctor nor do I have any medical training. I am an EFT practitioner who happens to know a lot about health issues and natural alternatives.


So this post is not for medical advice; it is based on my personal experiences and with my clients. As always if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below, and I will answer them promptly.

  1. The world is definitely opening to all kinds of possibilities.  I had no idea this CBD oil existed.  My mother was in a lot of pain last year, and she needed surgery for her hip, and after reading about CBD, I think this would have helped her a lot.  

    I see there are many ways to use it, which will accommodate all kinds of needs. 

    • Hey, Carmen & Ben thanks for stopping by. I agree with you the world is opening up to all kinds of possibilities especially with the farm bill being signed making it legal to grow Hemp in the United States.

      Did you know Hemp can be used to make clothes and even paper & plastic? There is an estimated over 20,000 uses for Hemp not counting the health benefits.

      CBD oil has been around for a few years now, but it is now starting to get a lot of buzz since the president signed the farm bill.

      I hope your mother is doing fine now and yes the CBD could have been beneficial to her during her time of need. Now if only the FDA doesn’t get it pulled off the market for cutting into big pharma’s profits.

      CBD is a great product and well worth trying if anyone has any joint pains, stiffness or have trouble with anxiety and getting a good nights sleep. CBD is a much safer alternative than using opioids for pain and inflammation which can cause Liver and Kidney damage.

      Best Wishes!

  2. Great Content and insightful Information. Thanks for this concise and thorough article.

    This is a great and simple to follow guide on alternative ways to use CBD oil. You laid it all out clearly and showed examples that helped emphasize your various points.

    You really have a good line of digital products. Internet marketing is changing everyday, and we need coaches like you to help keep us up to date.

    • Hi Wealthfather, I appreciate it very much, and you are welcome. Many people haven’t heard of CBD oil or the health benefits of using it let alone even know how to take it, and that is what inspired me to write this post.

      Thank you for the kind words, and if ever I can be of service, please don’t hesitate to ask.

      Best Wishes!

  3. Hi Dale,

    A big thanks to you for writing this post. It answers a lot of my questions. You have clearly enumerated ways I can use my CBD oil. I would also recommend informing your boss or workplace of your use of CBD oil so as to avoid any problems. Thanks for this insight

    • Hi, Aweda you are so welcome. I am happy my post was able to answer some of your questions. Cbd oil is an excellent product, so I hope it has been beneficial to your health needs.

      Yes, it is a good idea to inform your boss to avoid any problems which could arise from a random drug test.

  4. Hi Dale, I learned something new here again because I thought CBD oil was only taken orally and not able to apply to the skin. That’s why I like reading blogs from people that are really into a subject that makes them have more expertise. I come from a very liberal country regarding drug laws and medical users so even just the real deal having a joint for medical reasons is pretty well excepted, but their people still not really sure about CBD oil and the benefits. Need to check, to see if I can get it in the country I reside in at this moment. Thanks for the great info.

    • Hi Tommy, I am glad if you learned something from reading my article it lets me know that perhaps I am doing something right in educating people about CBD Oil and the health benefits.

      The CBD oil we use mostly comes from the Hemp plant instead of the Marijuana plant because the THC level is much lower in Hemp. Here in the United States, it has to contain less than .03% THC to be legal to sell without a prescription.

      Unfortunately at this time in Georgia Marijuana is still illegal and I think it is mainly because of the health benefits it offers. You can’t take money out of Big Pharma’s pocket without them complaining about it and getting the FDA involved.

      Yes, so many people still haven’t heard about CBD oil and what it can do for their health issues. Or a lot of the people who have heard of CBD are scared it will get them high. You could take a whole bottle of CBD oil made from Hemp, and you won’t get high.

      You are welcome Tommy and please stop back by anytime.

      Best Wishes!

  5. Hi Dale

    I have read the whole article about How Is The Best Way To Take CBD Oil – Alternative Ways To Use CBD. This is a very informative article. I like this article very much. Some days ago I bought some CBD oil for my mother, but I couldn’t find a proper guideline on how to take this oil. After reading your article, I have adequately learned how to take it. CBD oil is excellent for relief of various pains, so it is necessary to know how to take it. In this regard, you did an awesome job.

    This is a useful article for those people who want to know how to take CBD as you highlighted so nicely how to take this oil. By reading your article one can learn correctly how to use CBD. Thank you very much for sharing this article. I will share this article with my friends and relatives so that they can also learn how to take CBD Oil.

    • Hi Mhasanalvi, thank you, and I am happy you found my post useful. I agree with you that CBD is an excellent product to use for various pains. CBD is also good for people who have trouble sleeping have problems with anxiety or suffer from PTSD.

      My biggest fear is that when people find something natural that works along comes Big Pharma and the FDA and has it banned for cutting into their profits like they do so many other natural things which work.

      You are welcome Mhasanalvi!

      Best Wishes!

  6. Thanks for sharing this article on CBD oil. I would love people to know that CBD has been very effective for my anxiety, and lack of sleep. For me, it was a cumulative effect, after a week of one drop of oil, I can sleep very well at night. I feel like I am not polluting my body with commercial pharmaceuticals. I wish and hope it works for everyone too. Thanks a lot!

    • Hi Achievers, you are very welcome. I appreciate you letting people know what CBD has done in helping you with some of your issues.

      I am a big proponent of staying away from pharmaceuticals and doctors. I jokingly tell people all the time that they would live a lot longer if they stayed away from doctors, but I actually believe that unless you are having a heart attack or in some wreck and break a few bones.

      I haven’t been to a doctor since I was 12 years old other than for a physical I had to take for a job. I stick to natural alternatives when it comes to my health.

      So far I have seen amazing results from my clients who have been using CBD Oil.

      You are welcome Achievers, and I appreciate your comment. Come back anytime.

  7. Can I use CBD oil to regenerate my scalp and hair follicles? 

    I have this problem of losing hairs in my head. I have a thinner scalp than my father who is now at age 71. I wonder what has gone wrong with me… 

    I looked at several herbal products that promise to regenerate hair follicles and induce hair growth, but unfortunately, most of them are highly priced and does not guarantee results. I wonder if CBD oil can produce a good effect if I apply it directly on my scalp.

    • Hi Gomer, I seem to have the same problem as you do with losing my hair, but I believe I am quite a bit older than you are. My company sells a 4 product system for regrowing hair, but in my opinion, it is too expensive.

      I know a lot of people have been getting great results with using the products, but they are a little too far out of my price range. I bought a bottle of just the shampoo to try out, and I can tell some differences in my hair growth but not enough. Maybe by adding one of the other products as well might make a more significant difference.

      I figure it works just like Rogain and a person would have to continue to use it, or the hair would probably fall out again. It’s not worth it to me! I am not that concerned with my hair loss at my age. I can understand if you are a younger man and it is a concern for you.

      Best Wishes!

  8. CBD is the new wave for pain and other illness that the body might have. My husband takes it, and it does wonders for him. What makes him so happy is the fact that he doesn’t have to deal with the high of THC. This is wonderful for those who work or have kids. You still focus the same no matter what. Really like your post, to understand my husband.

    • Hey Claudia, yes CBD is the newest wave when it comes to something natural helping to alleviate health issues. I am really happy to here CBD oil is helping your husband. I agree with him about not having to deal with the high feeling you get from using Marijuana.

      If more people would use CBD for things like pain, anxiety, depression, and PTSD instead of Pharmaceuticals drugs with all kinds of nasty side-effects they would be better off in my opinion. I don’t like taking any kinds of medications.

      Thanks for stopping by Claudia, and thank you.

  9. Hi Dale,

    I have read your article on How Is The Best Way To Take CBD Oil – Alternative Ways To Use CBD, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us by your article. You have told the truth I really appreciate this because it will help a lot of people. This is really a very helpful and informative article. I will surely share this with others. Thanks again.

    • Hi Tawhid, you are welcome, and I find it is always better, to tell the truth because I never want to mislead anyone if I can help it.

      I know that not all CBD oils are created equally and it is a good idea if you are ever planning to use CBD to do some research because as with anything else you have some unscrupulous companies who lie about their products.

      I also am not saying the products I am promoting are the best or cheapest you will find, but the prices are comparable with most other reputable companies and the products are of good quality and work that is what matters to me.

      I am glad you found some value in my post and thank you for sharing it. I appreciate it.

  10. Thanks for writing this article on how to use CBD oil. It has been a while now that I have heard about the health benefits of CBD, and I have researched the many ways it can help to solve some certain illnesses. I have it in my mind to buy some and give it a try, but when I think about it, I didn’t even know how to use it. So thank you for posting about the different ways CBD can be used! I have a question can a person of 65 years of age make use of it?

    • Hi Ajibola, You are welcome sir. CBD has been a game changer for people with some of there health issues, so it is well worth trying if you have a health issue which requires you to either take opioids or anxiety meds.

      There are still a lot of people who don’t even know what CBD Oil is let alone knowing how to take it, and that is the reason I wrote this post. I wanted to educate people about CBD and other ways you can use it.

      To answer your question yes a person of 65 could benefit from the use of CBD Oil. My mother is 87 years old and has Arthritis and has a hard time sleeping throughout the night without waking up all hours in pain.

      I purchase the CBD Gummies for her, and she cuts them down into quarter size pieces and takes one before she goes to bed. She can sleep throughout the night without constantly waking up in pain. So, therefore, she has more energy during the day from getting a good nights sleep.

      So if you have an elderly parent Ajibola, I would give CBD a try.

  11. I love it, thanks for showing us the different ways of using CBD oil. The first time I bought it I didn’t know what or how to use it to get the maximum benefit out of it.

    But overall, pretty good article, very useful. I will definitely share this a couple of times.

  12. Wow, I had no idea that the best way to take CBD oil was under your tongue, but I guess this makes sense, as most homeopathic meds are also taken in this way.

    I also didn’t realize that it was so good for headaches and that you could put some on your temples for this. I am sure this would be much healthier than popping pain killers.

    Reading further, creams would work well for me, but are they as effective as if taken under the tongue?

    • Hey Michel, yes it is best to take CBD oil under the tongue and wait at least 30 seconds before swallowing it. A lot of people don’t realize that it will absorb through the skin and you can get the benefits by applying it topically. I agree that it is a lot better of an option than taking pain killers.

      In response to your question, the CBD pain cream with Emu Oil works fantastic, and it only takes a minimal amount to notice how quickly it works for relieving pain. I’ve had a couple of clients with shingles who applied the cream directly on them, and they said their pain instantly was so much less.

      So yes the CBD creams can also be quite effective.

  13. Hi Dale, very good and informative post about ways of using CBD Oil. Your list of advices how to use CBD oil is actually very helpful, I didn`t know for all those ways of using it. I have one question for you, what would it be if you put the CBD oil drops into tea or some other drink, would it have some effect or not at all? Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Hey Luke, thanks for the compliments. I am glad you found my article useful. A lot of people don’t know that you can apply the CBD Oil topically and get some of the benefits. I would still say the best way is taking it under the tongue because you might not get all of the benefits it offers rubbing it on topically.

      Luke, I appreciate the question, and I will do my best to give you an honest answer. I personally don’t have any experience with taking CBD Oil in the manner in which you are speaking but here are my thoughts about it.

      I think that if you put the CBD oil in something hot like coffee or tea, it might break it down to where you might not get the full benefits from it but if you put it into something like iced tea or water I think it would be fine. That’s my opinion which could be wrong.

      You’re welcome Luke and please if you have any future questions I would be happy to hear them and do my best always to give you an honest answer.

      Best Wishes!

  14. Hi Dale and thanks for your article and the information you have provided. I think it’s important that more people need to know what is CBD and the benefits it can give. I have written a few articles myself trying to reach more people and let them know that CBD might be an answer to their prayers for them and even for their pets. Cheers

    • Hi David, you are welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I agree with you David that it is important people learn the health benefits of taking CBD because it is a safer option than prescription drugs and it works for most people if it is a good quality product.

      Keep up the good work on educating people about CBD for health issues and as you mentioned David it is also helpful for our pets.

  15. Hi Dale,

    Thank you for this informative article on how to take CBD oil. I understand the benefits of CBD oil and l would like to try it. But l am from Malaysia and can l buy it as it contains cannabinoids. I decided to place an order, but it says only available to certain countries. Is there anywhere l can buy this?

    • Hi Shui, you are very welcome. I live in the United States, so I honestly don’t know if it is legal or not to purchase it in Malaysia. Shui I apologize that you weren’t able to place an order through my site.

      I know we are branching out into other countries, but as of now, we are only legal in the U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and Wales.

      Shui, I found a company that says it ships to Malaysia but you will want to do some research about it because I don’t know anything about this company or their products. https://healthyhempoil.com/cou

  16. Good afternoon Dale,

    I am entirely pro CBD oil. First of all, I know it helps, and second I think each individual should be able to make a free choice how his or her ailments should be treated. The moment you get caught in the modern medicine circle, it is very difficult to escape again. Many people who did not get any relief with modern medicine often do find relief with CBD oil. It should be completely penalty free to use it for health issues.

    My dear Rottweiler lady Cindy had a tumor in her armpit which I discovered shortly before Christmas 2015. I did not have her operated on as the vet said she might live six months after the operation. I gave her CBD oil drops in her food. She lived till June 2017 which is much longer than expected.

    Good that you make people aware of CBD oil, it is time it loses its bad reputation and be fully accepted in our society.

    Regards, Taetske

    • Hi Taetske, and good afternoon to you as well. You and I share a lot in common with our beliefs. I am sick and tired of Big Pharma and their police the FDA banning anything natural they find that works in helping people with health issues just because it cuts into their profits.

      It is a never-ending vicious cycle with medicine. You take medication for one problem and then you have to take more for the problems it creates. I also agree with you that CBD should be penalty free for people to use if they choose too.

      I fear that Big Pharma and the FDA will bane it or make it only available to purchase with a prescription.

      I have a friend who also has a dog with Cancer, and he did the same as you in giving it the CBD oil for pets, and so far his dog is responding well to the drops. He said she has more energy and doesn’t seem to be in as much pain.

      Taetske, I am genuinely sorry for the loss of your pet, but I am happy you were able to spend a few more years with her.

      I do my best to make people aware of a lot of natural things to help with health issues, and if people followed Gods laws instead of man’s, we would be a lot better off.

      Ecclesiasticus 38:4 (This passage comes from the 1611 KJV)

      The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth, and he that is wise will not abhor them.

      Thank you Taetke, I appreciate you sharing your story with us.

      Best Wishes!
