So many have come to believe in the benefits of CBD as a natural alternative to dealing with chronic pain, anxiety and depression, sleep disorders, smoking cessation and other issues affecting their health. But given that the hemp-derived compound is most commonly available in a liquid tincture form, people often ask the same question—how much do I take?
Tinctures like those available from Nature’s Highway can feature different concentrations—meaning that some contain more CBD than others. Each 30 milliliter bottle of Nature's Highway tincture contains a concentration of CBD clearly displayed on the bottle; for example, one bottle can have a concentration of 2,500 milligrams of CBD, or 1,500 milligrams of CBD. The concentrations are different because each customer’s body is different, and there’s no one amount that works for everyone.
But there are a few constants: each bottle comes with a dropper that features hash marks representing a graduated scale from .3 to 1 milliliter. Servings should be taken on a spoon to keep the dropper clean, and placed under the tongue for 60 to 90 seconds to improve absorption. And when not in use, tinctures should ideally be stored in a cool, dry place, which extends shelf life. If you refrigerate it, shake it up before use, because the tincture can separate.
But how much to take? Read on.
