When starting to use ULU Full spectrum 10% CBD oil we recommend little and often. Start your day with 2 to 3 drops (each drop contains 3.2mg of CBD) under your tongue. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute to allow the absorption into your system and then swallow. Repeat twice more during the day, ideally finishing before relaxing to bed and drifting off to sleep.
- How much CBD should you use?
Since CBD has no harmful effects and you can’t overdose on CBD, you can use as much CBD as you want. However, in the interest of preserving your CBD and still getting a healthy dose, you may want to use it conservatively.
Usually, a daily dose of 15-25mg of CBD is recommended if you just want to use it as a casual daily supplement. This is enough for most people to get a healthy daily serving, and some studies even suggest that 25mg of CBD can help with certain issues.
However, you can always experiment with your dosage and take as much as you feel you need.
- How do you choose your dose?
That’s down to individual preference. But the amount of CBD you should take also depends on factors, including the concentration of CBD in each product, your body weight, and the condition you’re treating. Check with your doctor as well if you’re already taking prescription medication, as some contains CBD already (especially some seizure medications). Generally, it’s best to start with a smaller dosage and gradually increase it. This could mean starting with 15 to 30 mg a day. After a week, increase this amount by 5 mg. Continue this until you feel it’s effectively treating your symptoms. But another factor to bear in mind is the concentration of your CBD product: broad spectrum, full spectrum or isolate?
- I have high blood pressure. Is CBD dangerous for me?
CBD does contain enzymes that can change the way drugs are metabolised by the body. It could increase of decrease the amount of medication entering the blood-stream – including drugs for high blood pressure such as beta-blockers. So, if you are currently taking blood pressure medication, check with your doctor before consuming CBD.
- Is CBD addictive?
People may also worry about whether CBD has any addictive qualities. However, CBD is safe to use without any risk of addiction. CBD has no physically addictive qualities, meaning you can use as much as you want, as regularly as you want, without worrying about becoming addicted.

- What are the side effects of CBD?
Just as with any kind of supplement, users may worry about the potential drawbacks and side effects of CBD. However, unlike substances such as THC, CBD is very safe to use with no risk at all of harm to your health. Studies have found that the vast majority of humans can use CBD without any side effects, although some very minor side effects are occasionally reported, such as diarrhoea and changes in appetite. One side effect can be a change in mood – often for the better!
