CBD powder (also called CBD isolate or CBD crystals) is a highly concentrated version of CBD that’s best suited to experienced users. You can add CBD crystals to food or sprinkle them directly under your tongue, but most experienced users prefer infusing them into homemade oils. They’re not the most convenient option for everyday use, but if you’re trying to avoid THC completely, the highly concentrated CBD formula is ideal.
The potential of CBD lies in its ability to work in harmony with the body, supporting that all-important state of balance. In this case, balance does not mean flooding the body with CBD, regardless of the compound’s benefits. Instead, the approach is similar to other supplements or vitamins, with a “less is more” attitude.

This high tolerance for CBD is why we recommend starting with our 500mg CBD oil, as it represents a middle-ground between the stronger and more mild concentrations. Even at four drops, three times a day, you are still only consuming 30mg of CBD. Don’t underestimate this compound though—in some cases, this may be enough.
If you assume an average daily dose of 3–4 drops, three times a day, that equates to approximately 30mg of CBD (based on our 500mg CBD oil). To give you some idea of the limitations, 160mg is seen as a recommended maximum daily amount.
CBD tinctures and CBD oil products including pure CBD oil are administered sublingually. This means that after the right dose of CBD oil is appropriately determined, you place a few drops underneath your tongue and allow it to absorb. This method allows the CBD drop to enter the bloodstream more quickly and the effects of CBD to kick in quicker.
However, if your doctor doesn’t recommend an appropriate hemp CBD dosage, many experts recommend CBD beginners start off with 25 mg of CBD. From there, they can either increase or decrease the dosage.

Tinctures are typically alcohol-based. The potency of the CBD drop may not be as high as that of the CBD hemp oil, but they are typically considered the better tasting one out of the two. Also, a CBD oil tincture may be mixed with herbs and/or flavorings.
