Joining the CBD Revolution – How Do I Start?
If you are new to CBD and insomnia, all of the information out there can be confusing. Health and wellness information is everywhere and is easily accessible. However, finding trustworthy & relevant sources can be more tricky and somewhat overwhelming.
Here at Illume Oil, we like to make things simple, so you can start your CBD journey with ease, clarity & confidence in the fact that you are taking the highest quality product available on the market, safely.
We aim to make the information regarding CBD easy to understand so that you can make the best decisions for yourself.
How much CBD should I start with?
The use of CBD is not a one size fits all process. We are all different and unique & our own CBD journey, although will have many similarities to others, will also be unique to us.
It is unlikely that you will get the dosage correct straight away. It is recommended to start with a lower dose and then work your way up until you find a product, and strength, that is right for you. If you require more specific guidance, try starting around 10-15mg of CBD per day.
Stay on the same dose each day for a week, to allow your body to adapt to the CBD cannabinoids.
After 1 week or regular daily dosages, assess how you feel & if you think you require a greater amount of CBD, just add another 10 – 15mg per day. You can continue on this weekly basis until you feel that you have reached your desired dosage and you are receiving the benefits you require.
Of course, the regularity of dosage can also be experimented with. For example, you could take your daily dosage all at once, such as in the morning which may help you to tackle the day ahead. Or, you may decide to take the CBD oil benefits at more regular intervals throughout the day either splitting the dosage or by taking more.
Feedback from customers has often stated that they find that mixing the CBD oil drops also with the capsules can give optimum results. Similarly, you may like to vape throughout the day whilst still taking oil in the morning. However, as stated, everybody is different and you should enjoy finding the right way forward for you.
How do I get an accurate dosage?
All reputable products will state their CBD concentration on the packaging, in milligrams (mg).
The Illume Oil 250mg bottle contains 250mg of CBD. Each half pipette delivers 13mg of CBD.
Remember to keep the oil in your mouth for as long as possible to increase the bioavailability of CBD & maximize absorption. Swallowing the oil straight away will reduce the bioavailability of the CBD. If you are looking for a more specific guideline, try and hold the oil for 2 minutes.
The Illume Oil 500mg bottle contains 500mg of CBD. Each half pipette delivers 25mg of CBD.
The Illume Oil 1000mg bottle contains 1000mg of CBD. Each half pipette delivers 50mg of CBD.
If the idea of using the pipette (or dropper) is not standardized enough, then a great alternative is to use the Illume Oil Capsules. Then, you can be assured that every single capsule contains 10mg of CBD. Easy! If you want to increase the dose, you can just add another capsule to your dosage.
The Difference Between Broad Spectrum (Raw Oil) & Refined. What is best for me?
Raw CBD oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant and has not been exposed to such vigorous processing and filtering as the Refined CBD Oil. It is darker in color and has a stronger taste.
Raw CBD Oil contains all of the original hemp constituents, without any of the actual plant materials. This Raw format encompasses all of the plant's naturally occurring cannabis elements, which is preferable by some customers. Arguably, the Raw CBD Oil is the most ‘natural’.
The taste of the Raw CBD oil isn’t for everyone. The Refined CBD Oil is more heavily filtered and has a taste that is much more subtle. The oil itself isn’t necessarily clear, it may be golden or light brown and has undergone a further refining process.
