4 Ways to Properly Use CBD Oil


If you are interested in taking CBD oil to improve your moods and clarity of thinking or to relieve symptoms of pain, insomnia, anxiety, or other medical conditions, then you have already begun to research the types of CBD products on the market.


Tru Medicinals offers CBD that is extracted using the in supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) solution which the FDA considers he CO2 extraction method can be regarded as safe for commercial extraction. The stability of supercritical CO2 also allows the compounds to be extracted with very limited damage.


Our CBD products come 4 different forms. You can choose from CBD Oil Tinctures, Capsules, Non-Flavored Water Miscible, and our special Lotion which is in a class of its own.  Each form can be taken based on your personal needs and ailments.


CBD is a safe substance to either smoke or ingest —you can easily experiment with different methods and dosages of CBD to determine which suits you best.


Below are the four most common ways to consume CBD.


  1. CBD Oil in its Pure State - Pure CBD oil comes right from the plant and is similar to paste in terms of its consistency. This pure form has the highest concentration levels of CBD out of any of the forms and is, therefore, a great option for people already familiar with CBD. To consume the thick texture, you simply squeeze a grain-of-rice-sized amount onto your finger or a spoon. Then, you place under your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds before swallowing. You may take more or less than this recommended dosage once per day depending on your particular medical needs.

  1. CBD Tinctures - In tincture form, CBD is a liquid with a dropper that allows you to place a drop under your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds before swallowing. Again, you might do more than one drop per serving or per day depending on your particular condition. This is similar to what you do with pure CBD oil, as discussed above. Remember to shake the bottle well before using in order to activate the ingredients.

Tru Medicinals offers tinctures of CBD oil in 600mg and 1,000mg with added hemp oil. The lowest form of CBD concentration is 1 mg with increasing concentrations up to 120 mg. Tinctures are a versatile form of CBD oil for new and experienced users.

  1. CBD Liquid for Vaping - Vaping is very common these days for current and former cigarette smokers, as well as marijuana users. Vaping is associated with a variety of interesting flavors and subsequent odors in the air. CBD is no stranger to the vaping process. Vaping brings CBD directly into your bloodstream through your lungs, so you feel the effects rapidly. A few ways to vape are listed below. While both are effective, they require different steps for users of varying experience levels.


  • Pre-filled Vape Pens are recommended for beginners and for those who frequently travel. You can discard them after a certain number of puffs. With this method, you do not need to clean and refill the vape pen on a regular basis. Another semi-disposable option involves vape pens with rechargeable batteries, which you do not discard. However, you do discard the vape cartridges, which you install into the battery, after completion. Lights on the vape pen signal to you when to recharge. You can simply recharge the battery through a USB wall charger or your computer.


  • The Vape Pen approach for more experienced vapers involves more detailed effort and precise steps. You fill oil into a vaporizer tank, which vaporizes the oil. The vape pen must be of the proper voltage in order to not produce a burnt oil taste. Sometimes, you can purchase a kit, which has all the supplies you need to vape in this fashion.


CBD Capsules - Capsules are an easy and effective way add CBD to your daily vitamin supplement in-take. There is no mess and you can easily measure how much CBD your taking. The only downside is that it can take one to two hours to feel the positive effects. That is why most people recommend taking a tincture in the morning for quick relief and a capsule right afterwards. Which then should carry you through the day.


Tru Medicinals - patented size 3 CBD Capsules are ideal for anyone who just wants an easy quick way to get their daily dose of CBD and/or the extra terpenes we have added for a therapeutic effect.


CBD Usage is Individualized

Regardless of the CBD form you select, CBD builds up in your body over a period of time and forms a compatible relationship with the endocannabinoid system, which provides balance. Products with CBD do offer relief, when you give them a chance, like any other daily supplement or vitamin.


Starting with a low dosage is always recommended, given the lack of clear FDA guidelines at this stage about appropriate CBD dosages. Talking to a medical expert can ultimately help you decide which form and which dosage works best with your weight, overall health, medications, medical history, and particular reason for usage.
