How to take CBD oil?
Beginners guide to CBD. Find out how much, how to take CBD and what strength you should go for.
You have probably seen CBD products across social media and in your local wellness shops or pharmacies. CBD oil has grown in popularity, particularly in the past few years due to its positive health benefits. The main reasons people are reaching out for CBD supplements are pain management, better wellbeing, improved sleep and to manage anxiety. What is more, CBD is used by many sportspeople to boost their athletic performance, training and recovery.
So how much CBD should you take to feel its amazing benefits?
Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is one of the 113 cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant. What is important is that CBD doesn’t contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is illegal in the UK and it will therefore not get you ”high”. CBD itself is not psychoactive nor addictive and very soon will require FSA approval (who classified it as a novel food in February 2020 and will guarantee quality products are being sold in the future).
The right dosage of CBD is crucial to notice its positive effects on your mind, body and performance.
We understand it’s easy to get confused with all the concentrations available in the market and for that reason, at For Sport, we are offering four CBD strengths; 1000mg, 1500mg, 2000mg and 300mg to allow you to easily build up your individual regimen.
What strength of CBD oil you should go for?
There is no official recommended daily dosage of CBD; one of the main aspects to consider when choosing the correct strength is your weight and height. The more you weigh the higher CBD concentration you should take to experience its properties. The other factors that should be taken into consideration are your body’s unique composition and metabolism. Everyone is different and so is their experience and response to CBD oil.
We suggest beginners start with keeping a diary to record their dosage and how it affects their wellbeing. A great idea would be to use one of the handy mood and symptom tracking apps that are available on mobiles.
By being aware of your vitality improvements and changes you will be able to consciously tweak your daily CBD dosage until you find your sweet spot. You can adjust your unique personal dosage of CBD as needed but you should be mindful of not exceeding the daily recommended intake (70mg).
Take a look at our suggested CBD dosage chart to get an idea of what strength you could start from.

How to take CBD?
To maintain sufficient absorption shake your bottle well and use the pipette to drop the oil dose directly under your tongue and hold it there for 60 seconds. This area of your mouth is capillary-rich, hence sublingual application guarantees that CBD will reach your bloodstream quicker than if it was swallowed immediately. Each For Sport CBD isolate bottle lasts for 30 days and should be used within a month of opening.
How long do CBD results take?
To feel the full benefits of CBD oil you should be consistent. Only systematic use can provide a noticeable impact on your mind and body. No two people are the same; for some, results are immediate, for others, it might take up to 14 days to notice the full effects of CBD.
Can your body adapt to CBD?
Tolerance can develop when your body is exposed regularly to some medicaments. As with other drugs, it is possible to build up a tolerance to CBD so if you feel that your response to CBD supplements has decreased it’s worth taking a 7-day break before starting to take it again.
If you are taking other medication make sure you speak to your doctor before taking CBD to determine whether it is the right choice for you. CBD can occasionally interact with other prescription drugs, supplements and over-the-counter drugs.
