You are feeling better because your body is working better. Perhaps that is the best thing about how CBD oil works is that you don’t just feel better, you actually are getting better.

CBD Doses

At this point you may be curious about how to take CBD and what a treatment might look like. First, you may be familiar with vaping. CBD liquid in a vape pen seems to be what more people are reaching for. While this is one way to get CBD in your system, it is not the most positive way. Vaping has many repercussions. For example, it has shown to increase cavities and mouth sores. You may be putting yourself at a higher risk for lung disease. You will have to deal with the smell of the smoke. You may also be missing out on some of the benefits due to the smoke. You will probably have a cough and some chest pain.

By placing drops under your tongue, you get the full benefit of the CBD. Your dosing will depend on your individual needs. You should start with the lowest dose possible. Usually it is suggested that you use 5 drops and work your way up to 25 drops. You should start with only one dose a day and then add more if you need them. Talk to your doctor or distributer to find the perfect dose for you. 

The final way that you could ingest CBD is to eat it. We don’t mean that you eat is straight from the bottle that it is in. Rather, you purchase candies and treats that have CBD oil infused in them. You can usually purchase these wherever you purchase your CBD from. You can find brownies, cake pops, hard candies, fruity chews, and even more with the CBD infused into them. They are usually a little stronger than the standard dose, which means you may only need one per day to get your dose in easily. 

Side Effects

CBD will not get you high. It comes from hemp rather than marijuana. You will not have to worry about walking around in an altered state. Nor will you have to worry about the munchies making you gain weight. The worst symptom that you will deal with is the sleepiness. Usually that does go away once your body adjusts to the CBD being in your system. 

Legality

In most states, CBD is completely legal. It does not contain THC which is what causes you to get high in marijuana. You do need to check with the laws in your state to find out what you are allow to have in your possession. You may find that the treats and snacks are not legal or that you can only buy from certain disrupters.

Remember, as with all new products, there is no set way to manufacture it. You need to research your supplier to find out the purity and the process to make sure that you are getting the best quality CBD you can. Not all are pure. Not all are safe. Some are no more than massage oils and should not be ingested. For your safety, research the brand of CBD that you choose to help your Endometriosis.
