An ATH Shop Guide: How to take CBD Oil

Here at All Things Hemp Shop, we understand that the range of oils and how to consume CBD can often be confusing for new users, so we thought we’d do a nifty little guide to help you out – enjoy!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

CBD Strengths (10ml bottle)

If you're using a 20ml bottle, halve the strength (e.g. 1000mg in 20ml is approximately 5% strength) 


  • 250mg / 500 mg (low strength, 1% - 2% CBD). This strength is perfect for maintaining general health and wellness.
  • 1000mg / 2000mg (medium strength, 5% - 10%). This strength is great for helping to treat moderate chronic pain, inflammation and fatigue conditions as well as mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, OCD and PTSD.
  • 3000mg - 4000mg (high strength, 15% - 20%). This is best for helping to treat severe chronic pain, inflammation and fatigue conditions and for different types of cancer.

We really do mean just a drop!


CBD Doses

ATH would always advise you to start on a lower dosage as laid out below and increase this gradually on a weekly or fortnightly basis until you obtain the desired effect for your individual needs. Once you have achieved the desired effect, simply maintain that dosage.

A Quick Guide to CBD Doses

Well its all well and good knowing the strengths and the doses, but how do you actually take CBD oil?

I am glad you asked! For fast absorption, it's best to put the drops under your tongue and work the oil into your tongue and gums. Try not to eat or drink anything for up to 10 minutes before and after taking the drops, to ensure the highest concentration levels are maintained and not diluted.

So there you have it, readers! Now you're an expert in how to take CBD Oil, visit the Shop to begin your own CBD Journey. We'd recommend Dr Green's CBD Oil if you want to shake things up with a little flavour!
