how to use cbd oil - Highline Wellness

Feeling like a tiny fish in the vast ocean of CBD oil? Do you have questions like how to use CBD oil?

Trust us, you’re not alone!

You’ve probably heard all about the amazing benefits pure CBD oil has to offer – from reducing anxiety to managing persistent chronic pain – but when it comes to actually using it, the process can feel a bit overwhelming. You may find yourself asking questions such as:

  • “Am I even doing this right?”
  • “How much CBD oil should I take for my issues?”
  • “What kind of CBD oil should I get?”

These are the questions we hear all the time, and we want you to know, it’s ok to ask them. CBD oil administration is a self-paced journey and everyone has their own unique experiences.

Heck, we remember the first time we decided to try CBD oil. It felt like we were embarking on a top-secret experiment, and the only instructions we had were a set of cryptic dosing suggestions and a tiny bottle of hemp-derived CBD oil.

We had a ton of questions too: Do you swallow CBD oil? Do you rub it into your skin? Should we hire a scientist to help us out?

Needless to say, we were overwhelmed. But we were determined to unlock the calming benefits of CBD oil.

Thus our CBD journey began... We set out to learn everything there is to know about ingesting CBD for its medicinal benefits. And in the process, we not only gained a deep understanding of CBD oil administration, but we also created our very own line of CBD oils – each with its own unique healing properties.

That’s right, Highline Wellness was born out of our personal experience with the incredible benefits of CBD for our mental health. And now, we feel a responsibility to share our knowledge with you. Because we know what it's like to feel lost in a sea of confusing and contradictory information, and we don't want anyone else to struggle as we did.

With Highline Wellness, we're here to be your guides and help you navigate the world of CBD oil with confidence and ease.

So buckle up, grab your notepad, and let’s take a deep dive into how to use CBD oil the right way. Together, we’ll put an end to the confusion once and for all!

How do you use CBD Correctly?

To achieve the benefits of pure CBD oil, you just need to apply these few steps:

1. Choose the Type of CBD Oil Tincture you Want to use

There are several different types of CBD hemp oils on the market. Some contain just pure hemp-derived CBD oil, while others contain flavors, terpenes, and added ingredients to target specific needs.

But here’s where things get tricky… There are also different spectrums of CBD oils. For example, there are three different spectrums of CBD to consider

Full Spectrum CBD Oil

Contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes found within the cannabis plant. This also includes 0.3% of THC.

While this amount of THC won’t get you high, it does accumulate in your system over time, which can increase your chances of failing a drug test. However, full-spectrum CBD oil is highly effective due to the added cannabinoids and therapeutic terpenes.

Broad Spectrum CBD Oil

Contains everything full-spectrum CBD oil has to offer, minus the THC. With broad-spectrum CBD oil, you get all the amazing health benefits without the risk of accumulating THC in your system.

Broad-spectrum CBD oil is incredibly effective and praised for offering tremendous relief and internal balance.

CBD Isolate Oil

Contains the purest amount of CBD, usually 99-100%. On its own, CBD isolate is less effective than both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oil. This is because of the entourage effect of all cannabinoids and terpenes working together.

However, the benefit of CBD isolate is that it contains absolutely no THC because it's been completely stripped down to just all-natural CBD.

Here at Highline Wellness, we offer the following CBD oil tinctures:

  • Premium CBD Oil – Which comes in two different flavors: Mint and Citrus.
  • CBD Night Oil for Sleep – This comes in a mint flavor and contains a therapeutic sleep blend of organic peppermint, CBD, and melatonin.
  • CBD Energy Oil – Which comes in an all-natural watermelon flavor and contains an energizing therapeutic blend of green tea leaf and CBD.
  • CBD Immunity Oil – Which comes in an all-natural citrus flavor and contains an immune-boosting blend of elderberry, Chaga mushroom, and CBD.

We create all of our CBD products with broad-spectrum CBD because we believe our consumers deserve to experience the full-on entourage effect without the worry of THC building up in their system.

Once you decide on which CBD oil you like to use, you then need to decide on the strength.

2. Choose Your CBD Oil Strength

cbd oil - Highline Wellness

Choosing the strength of your CBD oil can be tricky if you’re new to the hemp industry. So, we’re going to break it down in a very simple way.

The strength of your CBD oil is determined by the total of milligrams of CBD per tincture bottle.

For example, a 30ml tincture that contains 1,000mg CBD oil is twice as strong as a 500mg, 30ml CBD oil bottle. That is if you're considering buying those two different strengths of CBD from the same hemp brand. If not, the total contents that are in that tincture may not be the same. 

Here at Highline Wellness, we craft our CBD oil tinctures into a range of strengths. This allows everyone the option to achieve the perfect CBD oil experience for their specific needs.

Our CBD Oil tinctures come in the following strengths:

Type of CBD Oil

Strength and Toral of CBD Milligram per 30mL Bottle 

Total of Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

Premium CBD Oil

250 Milligrams of CBD

500 Milligrams of CBD

1,000 Milligrams of CBD

2,000 Milligrams of CBD

3,000 Milligrams of CBD

8 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

16 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

33 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

66 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

100 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

CBD Night Oil for Sleep

500 Milligrams of CBD

16.6 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

CBD Energy Oil

500 Milligrams of CBD

16.6 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

CBD Immunity Oil

500 Milligrams of CBD

16.6 Milligrams of CBD per Dropper

Given that our Premium CBD Oil comes in a variety of strengths, you can easily choose which strength works best for you and your specific needs.

However, if you’re new to CBD, we highly recommend you start with a lower strength, 250mg or 500mg. It’s best to ease your way into the CBD to determine your sweet spot.

3. Fill the Tincture Dropper With the Proper CBD Oil Dosage

Now that you know the different strengths of CBD oils, you need to now figure out how much CBD oil you should take.

If you look at the mountain of studies surrounding CBD, you’ll find that most of them involve CBD oil. But what you won’t find is a concrete CBD dosing chart. This is because every person is built differently and they have their own specific health issues.

Since there are no guidelines for CBD dosing, the hemp industry has left it to reputable hemp brands to determine a safe recommendation for CBD dosage.

Any reputable CBD brand will recommend their customers to start with a low CBD dosage and then gradually increase that dosage until they reach the desired effect.

Keep in mind that dosing CBD oil requires patience and a lot of experimentation. If you’re new to CBD oil, consider starting with just 8mg. That would be one full dropper of the 250mg tincture bottle, half a dropper of a 500mg tincture bottle, and a quarter of a dropper of a 1,000mg tincture bottle.

Here are a few other factors to consider when determining the perfect CBD oil dosage:

  • Your weight
  • Your age
  • Your sex (male or female)
  • What are you using CBD oil for?

If you’re using CBD oil for pain, then you may need to take more than 8 mg of CBD oil. Using CBD oil for anxiety also may require a stronger dose.

Small doses of CBD are great for regaining energy and just maintaining internal balance. 

That said, here at Highline Wellness, we encourage you to start slow and with a low dosage, especially if you’re new to CBD. However, if you’ve consumed CBD oil before but you’re looking to switch over to Highline CBD Oil, be sure to follow our dosing instructions on the back of the CBD oil bottle.

You can fill the dropper all the way, or just a little bit. Our CBD oil is safe for you to take as much as you need when you need it most.

4. Release the CBD Oil From the Dropper Under Your Tongue

The most popular and effective way to ingest CBD is by placing the CBD oil under your tongue and holding it there for 30 seconds.

The reason this method is so effective is that the CBD is absorbed through the blood vessels under your tongue.

However, there are other ways you can use CBD oil.

For example, you can add a few drops of CBD oil to your favorite drink, like coffee, tea, or smoothie. You can even administer CBD oil into one of your favorite recipes, like homemade cookies or salad dressing. So if you’re wondering: Do you swallow CBD oil? The answer is yes, that is one way you can ingest CBD.

Some people even have CBD oil mixed into their favorite lotions and creams to take their skincare routine to the next level. Or they may even apply CBD oil directly onto their skin as a CBD topical.

Here at Highline Wellness, we encourage you to take our CBD Oils any way you choose. That said, placing our CBD Oils under your tongue is by far the most effective method.

5. Develop a Consistent CBD Routine & Evaluate Your Progress

Consistency is key if you want to truly tap into the full benefits of pure CBD oil.

You see, when you’re just starting out, you may not notice anything from using CBD oil, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t working. It just means that you need to keep experimenting. Even conventional doctors experiment with the dosage of using different pharmaceutical drugs.

CBD oil is a very gentle and highly therapeutic cannabinoid that affects everyone differently. While some people notice the benefits of CBD oil right off the bat, others may need a little more time.

For this reason, if you want to experience the best results, we encourage you to develop and stick to a CBD routine for at least 30 days. And during those 30 days, evaluate your progress.

Take notes on how you feel before and after you consume CBD oil each day. By day 30, you might be surprised at how effective this amazing cannabinoid can be for your overall health and wellness.

Can I Drink Water After Taking CBD Oil?

Absolutely! There is no harm in drinking water after taking CBD oil. Just be sure to wait 30-60 seconds before you gulp your H2O down. Here’s why…

If you're holding the CBD oil under your tongue, it's especially important to wait at least 30 seconds or longer before you drink any water. This will give the blood vessels under your tongue enough time to properly absorb CBD oil, which can help to increase its effectiveness.

That said, you may naturally feel the urge to swallow after holding the CBD oil under your tongue for a little while. Don't worry, this is completely normal! After 30-60 seconds, you can go ahead and drink as much water as you'd like.

We encourage you to stay hydrated, as it can help to support your overall health and wellness. It can also help transport any remaining CBD oil into your digestive system.

Now that you know how to properly consume CBD oil the right way, you might have some questions regarding the meaning of CBD oil.

CBD Oil Explained

taking cbd oil - Highline Wellness

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an all-natural compound found within the cannabis plant.

Now don’t worry, unlike its psychoactive relative THC, CBD won’t get you high. Scientists have discovered that higher ratios of CBD can actually counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.

This is why full-spectrum CBD products won’t get you high. The amount of CBD present in the bottle greatly outweighs the amount of THC in the bottle. However, this doesn’t change the fact that THC can still build up in your system. For this reason, many people prefer broad-spectrum CBD oil.

That said, to create highly effective medicinal CBD oil, the CBD compound must first be extracted from the cannabis plant. This is done by using various methods, such as CO2 extraction or ethanol extraction. These extraction methods are by far the cleanest and safest methods used in the hemp industry.

Once the CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, it is then combined with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, better known as MCT oil.

You see, according to research, when cannabinoids are combined with dietary lipids (fats) they become more effective. This is because fats, like MCT oil, help increase the amount of CBD that gets absorbed into your system.

Scientists call it the “intestinal lymphatic transport”, which is just a fancy way of saying that the fats help the CBD get into your bloodstream more efficiently.

When you consume CBD infused with a fatty carrier oil, like coconut oil, you’re able to get more relief from lower doses of CBD oil.

But now the question is…

What Does CBD Oil do?

High-quality CBD oil, created by reputable hemp brands, is packed with a ton of therapeutic properties. And it’s these properties that help reintroduce balance back into your overall body.

You see, CBD oil has a strong influence and connection with our very own Endocannabinoid System, or ECS for short.

Now, our ECS is made up of receptor cells, enzymes, and endocannabinoids, and they can be found throughout our body, including:

  • Brain
  • Immune system
  • Nervous system, and more

In a nutshell, our ECS is responsible for keeping our body in balance and functioning normally. But even our ECS can be thrown off balance sometimes, by something scientists call Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CED).

CED means that your ECS isn’t producing enough endocannabinoids to keep everything in balance, like your sleep, appetite, mood, pain, etc.

Scientists have noted a connection between CED and the following health issues:

  • Lower pain threshold
  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

They also think it might have something to do with increased inflammation, nervous system issues, digestion problems, mood swings, and sleep disorders.

So, What does CBD do, you ask?

Well, to help with CED, scientists have been looking into drugs that work as a CB1 receptor agonist. And as it turns out, scientists are particularly curious about CBD because it also acts as a CB1 agonist. More studies are needed to confirm this, but it’s interesting to see that scientists are pushing for more CBD studies simply because of its unique mechanisms in the human body.

This brings us to…

What Is CBD Used for?

cbd oil mixed - Highline Wellness

CBD oil is praised for offering tons of therapeutic benefits. Some folks use CBD oil to reduce their anxiety and stress, while other people swear that CBD oil helps improve their sleep and reduce their pain.

And get this, many CBD Reddit users claim that this cannabinoid has helped improve their sleep, digestion, and even their sexual experiences.

But is there actual scientific proof behind these statements, or are they just blowing smoke?

Pure CBD Oil Benefits

As it turns out, CBD oil has been studied extensively for its many benefits. And more studies are currently underway.

According to a cross-sectional study of Cannabidiol users, researchers found that 62% of folks taking CBD do so for pain relief, anxiety, and depression.


There are a few studies that revealed CBD may help ease the symptoms associated with anxiety disorders by promoting a calming effect. Of course, more studies are needed to confirm these results, but based on significant anecdotal evidence, it seems that people primarily use CBD oil to address their anxiety.


This is also true for sleep disorders. According to the Sleep Foundation, anxiety is often one of the root causes of poor sleep. However, studies show that CBD is effective at lowering anxiety levels, thus improving better sleep.

For example, one study found that 80% of participants experienced reduced anxiety within a month of consuming CBD. What’s even more impressive, is that over 65% of those participants also experienced better, more quality sleep.

Because of the results of this study, scientists have been pushing for more research to really explore the mechanism of CBD and insomnia.


As for pain, CBD has also been studied for its ability to address chronic pain. So far, most, if not all, of the studies involving CBD also mention inflammation. And if there’s one thing we know about persistent inflammation, is that it’s often associated with persistent pain.

According to research, many scientists and medical professionals have noticed that CBD has a significant impact on balancing out inflammation. They’ve also noted that CBD is a powerful antioxidant. Because of these findings, it makes sense that many people find relief from their aches and pains after consuming high-quality CBD. But again, more studies are needed to confirm this.

Seizures & Epilepsy

Perhaps the most intriguing benefit of CBD is its ability to reduce seizures. This devastating condition can be debilitating, but CBD oil has shown promise in helping manage seizures. In fact, the FDA has even approved a medicinal CBD oil called Epidiolex to help treat rare forms of epilepsy primarily found in young children.

When it comes to the benefits of 100% cannabis oil or broad-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD oil, the evidence is overwhelming. Especially if you look beyond just government-funded studies.

That said, CBD oil is not a “cure-all” by any means. While many people do find relief from using it, CBD is not a magic solution that can fix all of your health problems and ailments.

If you’re looking for something more natural and less invasive, then CBD is something you should consider. But keep in mind that developing a healthy style is also important, like:

  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Going to bed and waking up at the same time every night/day.
  • Practicing meditation
  • Stretching out your body with yoga.

Overall, CBD oil should be used in conjunction with other health practices and under the guidance of a healthcare professional if you’re currently taking any prescription medications.

Is CBD All-Natural?

Since CBD is the second most prominent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, it is an all-natural compound.

But here’s the thing: there are some less-than-reputable brands out there that think they can get away with creating synthetic CBD. Yeah, that’s right, synthetic. Not natural. And let’s just say it can cause some unwanted side effects and make your body go haywire.

So, if you want to avoid any potential disasters, make sure you’re getting the real deal. Always check to see if your CBD is derived from hemp and has a thorough Certificate of Analysis (COA). It’s like a seal of approval from an accredited third-party testing laboratory.

Don’t be fooled by the growing number of shady hemp brands trying to pass off synthetic CBD as the real thing. Stick to the high-quality good stuff! Your body will thank you.

But where do you find high-quality CBD?
