What CBD Oil is Right For Me?
First off, let’s get this little disclaimer out of the way so we can carry on.
Now that that’s out of the way, we can move on to some interesting and helping tips to help you choose and decide.
Choosing How To Take CBD
If you’re easily confused by milligrams or percentages like I was, it’s important to know two things: some products contain the amount of CBD in milligrams, for example: 300mg’s, while others will include the percentage, for example: 28% CBD.
No matter what number the company has listed, the higher it is, the stronger or more potent the oil will be.

“Dose LOW and Dose SLOW”
— The Marijuana Mantra
You can gradually work your way up to higher doses. Just notice how it affects your body, and then adjust accordingly.
If you’re using CBD for medicinal purposes, most MD’s (at least here in Canada) will encourage you to start at 0.5 ml, for example, for three days and then increase slightly again after 3 days.
Subtlety is key, so your body can adjust and regulate what’s going on and you can too!
What Are The Different Kinds of CBD?
Full-spectrum oils contain all of the active cannabinoids and terpenes found within the plant, while CBD isolate is pure cannabidiol, and nothing else.
With a full-spectrum CBD oil, it encourages what’s called the entourage effect. It’s when cannabinoids AND terpenes (natural chemicals found within the cannabis plant) boost each other’s effects while they interact and mingle inside your body.
Isolate oils do not, because the terpenes are removed – so there are benefits to both oils, and your body needs to show you which one works best.
CBD Oil VS Capsules
Just as important as choosing the right concentration, you should consider how you’re going to consume CBD.
These products still contain the same active ingredients, but the onset and actual duration of effects might vary from person to person.
But that being said, when the effects of edibles or capsules do start – they actually last longer than if you took it under the tongue!
It just depends on your lifestyle, and desired effects.
CBD On A Budget
If you’re on a budget or financially strapped, you’ll need to take price into consideration.
CBD oils with a higher concentration might be slightly more pricey, but it means it may last longer so you won’t have to constantly order, wait and pay for shipping frequently.
Check for companies who are transparent and honest with their numbers, tests and results.
You can feel great knowing that you have a high-quality, lab-tested, and certified product to put into your body.
The Bottom Line
Talk with your medical professionals, and determine what to start with, and create a journal or note on your smartphone to document your feelings.
