How to take Cannabis/CBD oil and how to find the right amount for you?

Everyone is different. We recommend that you start off gradually if you are new to Cannabis/CBD oil.

What is CBD Oil and how to take it?

Have you ever wondered what CBD oil is and how to take CBD oil? Well it comes from the hemp plant, as do all forms of Cannabis. THC forms before the plant flowers and CBD forms at the flowering stage. The Canni Family Cold Pressed Cannabis/CBD oil is 100% full spectrum and is not able to make you ‘high’, no matter how much you take, as it is non-psychoactive. It is in no way addictive, has no known significant side effects and you can’t overdose on it, it will also not show up on drugs tests.

How to take our Cannabis/CBD products:

Shake the bottle well before opening and every time you use it. We recommend that you rinse your mouth with water before taking our products, to remove any food/drink residue

Every person is different so only increase the amount you take if you feel more is required however no more that 70mgs of CBD a day is stated by the FSA guidelines.

Your first two days of using our products...

Start at night in case it makes you a little tired, if you do feel tired this will subside after a couple of days

Oil: Take 2-3 drops a day under the tongue and hold the oil under your tongue for 3 minutes. Using a mirror can help to determine the number of drops taken

Water Soluble Drops: 10 drops/1.25ml/quarter of a teaspoon in a drink or directly into the mouth, as this product is absorbed via your gastric system and not under the tongue

Water Soluble Spray: 1 spray in a drink or directly into the mouth as this is absorbed via your gastric system not under the tongue

Then you can...

Oil: Increase to 5 drops under the tongue once a day

Water Soluble Drops: 15 drops a day

Water Soluble Spray: 1 spray twice a day, morning and evening

After one week...

Oil: Increase to 5 drops under the tongue twice a day

Water Soluble Drops: 10 drops twice a day, morning and evening 

Water Soluble Spray: 1-2 sprays twice a day, morning and evening

How do I find the best oil for me?

It is important to do your research about the Cannabis products you buy online or even in store. It's your body so make sure you are only getting the best products with no hidden surprises! With Canni Family, our products were tested by the Kinesiology Association and the International College of Applied Kinesiology.                                            

They contain no heavy metals or pesticides and the full spectrum of CBG, CBN, CBC, terpenes and terpenoids. As many other leading brands, we also provide independent lab testing reports on our website so you can see clearly what is in the product you are buying and more importantly what isn’t (THC!)  Read our article on the 3 essential things to look for when purchasing CBD oil to learn more! And now we will explain how to take cannabis/CBD oil.

How does Cannabis/CBD oil taste?

Our Cold Pressed oil tastes a lot better than most oils available on the market today. You do need to hold it under your tongue when taking the oil as it is absorbed into the vein under the tongue - sublingually. This can be a challenge for some people however that is why we also offer a water-soluble which can be added to a drink or into the mouth as this is absorbed in the gastric system rather than sublingually under the tongue.

You can add the oil to fat-based product such as butter, honey or yogurt but this delays absorption and it means you won’t really know exactly how much you have absorbed whereas with the Water soluble the whole amount is absorbed every time.

What are the best ways to take Cannabis/CBD Oil?

Take the Cannabis/CBD oil for the first time where you feel most comfortable 

The first time you take cannabis oil should be within a safe environment where you feel comfortable. No amount of this product can make you ‘high’ however it is always worth having someone with you when you take it for the first time.


Please store The Canni Family products in a dry, dark place at room temperature (not above 25 degrees) 

We recommend that you store your products in this way as keeping them refrigerated is not only unnecessary, it can also lead to the Cannabis/Hemp products to thicken and then become harder to administer. Sunlight will degrade both the extract and the oil so it is best to keep it in a kitchen or bathroom cupboard.

The Cannabis/Hemp oil and Water Soluble have a shelf life of one year once they are opened.
