How to Use CBD Oil

Early research shows that CBD oil can provide various benefits. As a known anti-inflammatory, CBD can interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system to help you focus, relax, relieve pain and even get better sleep.


But, wait. How can CBD oil help you focus and improve your sleep?


Dosage and application are key here. You can choose to use CBD oil topically or orally, depending on desired effect. If your goal is to relieve short term muscle aches, a topical CBD cream can do the trick. But if you’re hoping to improve your focus, quell anxiety, and cut down on your bedtime tossing and turning, taking a CBD tincture is the way to go.


If you’re planning on ingesting your CBD, it’s especially important to ensure that the oil you’re using is lab-tested and of the highest quality. At GoCBD, we batch test all our products and have our Certificates of Analysis publicly available on our site for easy access.


While the appropriate dosage for desired effect (ex. Anxiety relief, relief for muscular pain, improved sleep, etc.) is different for each individual, this CBD dosage calculator can help you get an idea of which dosage is best for you.


GoCBD’s CBD oil was designed with ease of use in mind. Our Broad Spectrum CBD tinctures – available in 500MG, 1000MG, 1500MG and 2500MG – come with a 1mL dropper, so you can easily measure your appropriate dose. Here’s a step-by-step guide to using our tincture: 

  • Use the dropper to adjust the dose as needed for desired effect.
  • Place the measured amount of CBD oil directly under your tongue for quickest effect. Alternatively, you can put it in your coffee or caffeinated tea for a no-jitter focus. 
  • For best effects, don’t swallow it immediately. Hold it under your tongue for 1.5 to 2 minutes before swallowing. 
  • The CBD will immediately absorb into your mouth and enter your bloodstream. The effects can be felt in as short as 15 minutes, but may take up to 90 minutes depending on your individual system.


At GoCBD, we offer pure, locally sourced CBD products with organic cannabinoids or hemp extracts, therapeutic essential oils, and tasty terpenes. Our products do not contain THC. We don’t use any pesticides or other harmful chemicals, and only use CO2 to extract our CBD from pure, naturally derived hemp.
