However, generally the instructions are:
Step 1: Shake bottle well
Like most supplements you should start by shaking CBD oil before you take it.
Step 2: Fill the dropper
Squeeze the top of your dropper to fill CBD oil into the pipette. Dispense the required amount as instructed by manufacturer under the tongue and swish it around or let the oil sit under the tongue. CBD oil should be absorbed into the body after holding it in the mouth for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing.
Step 3: Repeat the process
Repeat this process as recommended by the manufacturer. It’s important to note that CBD oil has been shown through some studies to induce mild to moderate sedative effects when taken in large amounts.
