CBD Drops for Pain: Our Recommendations
Attempting to find an easy yet efficient way to relieve some pain, be it small or horribly agonizing? CBD oil drops may just what you’re looking for.
You’ve probably heard of cannabidiol CBD or cannabinoids before. If you haven’t, here’s a quick break down: CBD is a part of the cannabis plant that can help with chronic pain relief and anxiety, all while not getting you high or stoned. Unlike standard cannabis, there is no THC in CBD, which means that CBD and CBD products are actually legal everywhere in the nation. In fact, you’ve more than likely seen some things for sale be it at a store or online that promote hemp oil and CBD oil in their products.
CBD has become quite a common and popular way for people to handle their pain, stress, or anxiety. While there are a lot of benefits that come with using CBD oils, these are the main advantages.
Because pain relief is the most common usage of cannabidiol CBD products, we’re going to focus on this issue, in particular, in this article—and, more importantly, how specific CBD hemp oil drops can really help with your pain.
Everybody is different
First things first, let’s talk about the obvious: everybody is different. With that said, that means that everybody and every dosage is different. Some people will need less oil to feel the effects while some may need more. It really just depends on you and your body—and finding out just what you need to feel perfect might take a few trials and errors.
The dosages and recommendations we give in this article are meant to be a starting point or a basic guide for you as you become more accustomed to using CBD hemp oil. However, they shouldn’t be specific instructions on just what to do—they are recommendations, meaning they should change should you find that something (like a higher or lower dosage) works better for you.
Now, as we begin to discuss CBD drops and dosages, we highly recommend that you start small, with lower dosages before upping them and adding more oil drops into your system. If you ingest too much at once, you’re really going to feel terrible. You don’t want to do this. Instead, it’s easier to start small and then add more to find out just what works best for your body.
Some oils come with dosage suggestions. If you’ve used CBD oils and used different brands before, you’ve probably realized by now that each and every one offers different dosage instructions, even if they’re considered to be the same type of oil, to begin with. This creates a lot of confusion for customers and CBD users and can really turn off people who are just trying to find the right dosage for themselves.
Again, one of the only ways to really find out what dosage is correct is to find out what is right for you. There hasn’t been any definitive study on all of the CBD oils, telling customers and consumers just how much they need to feel the effects. So, again, we highly recommend starting small and then adding if you feel like you need more or aren’t feeling the effects, to begin with.
CBD oil and conditions
While we can’t talk about just how much of CBD oil you should use, we are going to talk about the common conditions people use CBD oil for—as well as our recommended method of using CBD for said condition.
- For sleep disorders, you should take CBD by the mouth. We recommend just keeping it simple and using the oils in an oral method to quickly get the effects.
- For cancer patients trying to increase their appetite, we recommend taking CBD by mouth; if using THC already, just add the CBD in whatever format already being used
- For those with chronic pain, take CBD by mouth for at least 25 days to find what works best and for how long. Again, we recommend using a basic oral method to get results quickly, so just dropping the oil in your mouth should be an easy and efficient way to get the job done.
- For those who have arthritis, we recommend using a cream or salve that has CBD in it (or you can make your own!) You can use other methods, such as orally, but we like the creams for arthritis pain.
- If you have severe, consistent pain, we recommend checking out a CBD patch that has the oils in them. They’ll have a higher dosage that will be released to you throughout about four days, meaning that you’ll have that constant supply of CBD ready to enter your body instead of you having to continuously use oil drops orally.
There are many different methods to get CBD into your system and there really is no wrong way. Again, dosage levels really just depend on you, your pain, your condition, and what you need!
How to use and take CBD oil
CBD is, for the most part, taken orally in a “drop” format. This can be done in different ways, and can even be formed into a concentrated paste. We recommend the following method: hold the CBD oil under the tongue, without swallowing, and allow it to be absorbed in the mouth. This is the best way to get the CBD into your system fast without the digestive system breaking it down. You can also ingest CBD oil orally through using mouth strips, capsules, and edibles (in all of their different formats).
Patches are also becoming quite popular, especially for those who feel they need more consistent and steady help to deal with their pain relief. Patches are also great for those who might find themselves forgetting to take their supplements or CBD oil.
Another way to get CBD into your system is to use CBD vape oil in vaporizers and inhalers. This is also another way to instantly get the CBD into your system, and most who use this method find it to be instantly effective. You can also use CBD in lotions, creams, or balms.
As we said earlier, everyone is different. It’s all about finding what works best for you in all different formats or scenarios.
