Slight side effects such as dizziness, slight headache and nausea may occur during the first 2 weeks when taking CBD oil. As CBD oil has a cleansing effect on the body, it is possible to experience flu-like symptoms too.
CBD oil is natural, has no euphoric side effects and is in no way addictive. Recently, it has even been recognized by the WHO for its many beneficial effects.
Example of the intake of CBD oil capsules (1 capsule = 10 drops):
Many users of CBD oil take a break every 3 months between 3 and 7 days.
By taking CBD in liquid form, it is easier to gradually build up and control the dosage you should take. CBD oil can simply be dosed drop by drop, while CBD capsules with 10 drops each are a little harder to measure. At the beginning you will have to be a little patient, until you find the right dose.
It is important that you feel well physically and do not exceed the maximum recommended dose (about 3 capsules 3 times a day). There are no risks associated with excessive intake of CBD, but it should not be necessary. If you start feeling tired or sick, you should reduce your dose a bit as mentioned above.

In order to figure out the right dosage for you, here are some basic steps to start with:
Let’s start by addressing some common misconceptions about CBD. First off: you can’t get “high” using CBD. In order to be legal for sale in the US, CBD can’t contain more than 0.3% concentration of THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the sensation of “getting high”. In simple terms: virtually no amount of CBD could be consumed to trigger the psychoactive effects commonly associated with THC. Put another way, there’s small amounts of alcohol in toothpaste, but you’re never going to get drunk by swallowing tubes of Colgate. That said, it is important to figure out the right dosage for your needs.
600 drops worth of tincture and each drop will contain approximately 0.8mg of CBD. Now, if you recall from reading above, we suggest a dose of 0.25mg multiplied by your bodyweight in pounds. For example, if you are 120 pounds you should be taking 30mg CBD per day for best results. Here is our formula 0.25 x 120 = 30mg, and now to convert that into drops, we take 30mg and divide that by the 0.8mg per drop and you get
Dialling in the correct dosage for your body is an important part of getting the most out of your CBD supplements. Once you’ve found the right dosage you’re not only going to get the most benefits from your supplements and feel great, but you’re also going to guard against wasting money by using excess product.

Just like CBD, CBDa has been found to be a very effective Epilepsy treatment. This patent application found “Cannabinoid treatment significantly reduced seizure severity” and “CBDA may be a useful candidate for use in the treatment of epilepsy which requires immediate emergency treatment”.
COX (Cyclooxygenase) is an enzyme involved with the bodies pain and inflammation response. Over the counter drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen provide relief by inhibiting the COX. This study found cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) to selectively inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX)-2.
2) Reduce nausea and vomiting
Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is the raw, untreated or un-activated form of CBD. CBDa is naturally occurring in resin glands of the cannabis plant. When CBDa is heat treated, there is a change in its molecular structure – the acid group of the molecule breaks down resulting in the commonly known cannabinoid CBD. For this reason, CBDa is often referred to as ‘raw CBD’. Just like CBD, CBDa is non-psychoactive.
Tinctures or oils are one of the most effective ways to dose CBD and CBDa if taken correctly. Holding a CBD oil under ones tongue (sublingual administration) results in the CBD, and in this case CBDa, to be absorbed directly into the blood steam through tissues under the tongue and through the gums. While this method of taking CBD is a little tricky, and the taste off putting to some, it has a high rate of CBD absorption
Taking a capsule containing a precise amount of CBD is an easy method of dosing CBD. Compared to other products such as oils or vaping, capsules are highly convenient and simple for the user to know exactly how much CBD they are taking. The downsides to capsules are in-flexibility when it comes to dosing (you cant take half a capsule) and the fact that if the capsule is swallowed, CBD is digested rather than absorbed subliminally, which is less effective. This disadvantage can be mitigated if one opens the capsule in their mouth and holds the oil under their tongue for over a minute. This method of ‘sublingual administration’ is the most effective way to dose CBD.
