Step by Step Guide to Using CBD Hemp Oil



You’ve made the decision to try hemp CBD oil in the liquid form of a tincture. Now you’re likely wondering how to use hemp oil, or how to know if it’s working for you.

We’ll go over the following topics:

      • • Basics of using a tincture
      • • How to be safe when starting your CBD routine
      • • Shake, dispense, absorb, and repeat
      • • What to expect from your hemp oil
      • • Great CBD hemp oil product recommendations
        • • How to find more information

Let’s begin with the basics. Or skip to Step 1.

What is a Tincture?

Tinctures are liquid extracts of plant or herbal materials, explicitly intended for oral (by mouth) use. Using them is extremely simple.

Thanks to the commonly used dropper top (as pictured on the right), you can easily measure an exact amount.


Educate yourself on the benefits of hemp oil and read about how other people are using it and determining how much to take. The recommended serving size on CBD supplements may not be optimal for everyone, so we encourage you to experiment.

If you receive a tincture and it’s not sealed with either a plastic safety seal or a locked top, please contact the seller and request a new one. Many hemp-based herbal products on the market are made in small, niche facilities and are susceptible to human error. Be safe!

Step 1

Shake well!

Separation in hemp oil products is completely natural and to be expected. Some bottles are impossible to see into, but if you can, take note of how the oil tends to settle onto the bottom. Once you start shaking, it quickly blends. I can’t stress how important this step is. If you don’t shake it, you’ll likely end up consuming straight grape seed oil and vegetable glycerin emulsifier. It’s not the tastiest experience, and won’t be very beneficial for you either.

Step 2

Squeeze the dropper top to fill the pipette with oil and dispense the oil under your tongue. This is really useful for avoiding the hempy taste. You can add as many dropper fulls as needed; don’t feel you need to restrict yourself to the recommended serving size. CBD is non-psychoactive, so you won’t experience those negative side effects typically associated with cannabis. However, many people have noted a slight sedative effect at larger quantities. This may be beneficial if you have trouble sleeping, so consider using it before bed.

Allow the oil to absorb into your system by holding the oil in your mouth for 60-90 seconds before swallowing. You may choose to swish it around, but it’s not necessary.

Step 3

Repeat as necessary throughout the day. As mentioned above, CBD hemp oil may be slightly sedative at higher amounts, or simply calming and relaxing at a lower serving size.


CBD-rich hemp oil is a food supplement that can help support overall well-being.

We recommend two weeks of consistent usage for the phytocannabinoids to build up in your system and for your body to understand what to do with it.

Best CBD Hemp Oil Products

Now that you know how to use hemp oil, let’s take a look at some great options.

Our CBD experts developed our Tasty Hemp Oil Tasty Drops tincture. This high quality hemp oil blend contains various phytocannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), and may contain other natural compounds including terpenes and flavonoids.

We use this special blend because we believe it’s important to have a combination of natural plant compounds, rather than simply taking a CBD-only mix. A common term for this is the “entourage effect,” which refers to a proposed synergistic effect between the different cannabinoids and terpenoids in cannabis.

Similar products may be touted as cannabis oil, but we feel it’s more fitting to call Tasty Hemp Oil a CBD-rich hemp oil due to its origin. Our oil is derived from imported hemp (Europe/UK), which is naturally very low in THC. This type of CBD oil is legal in most countries, including all 50 U.S. states.

A common misconception we hear is “CBD from hemp is not as good as CBD from cannabis.” This statement is arguably confusing; hemp is cannabis just like all the other strains that fall under the three species of cannabis. They contain various amounts of cannabinoids, with hemp having less than 0.3% THC and any range of CBD.

Best CBD Oil Tincture



Tasty Drops
Concentration:  1oz (300mg CBD)
The concentrations are a combination of CBD and CBDa.
Made in the USA from imported hemp.

Tasty Drops by Tasty Hemp Oil are made with a reliable, tested hemp-derived cannabidiol oil. The total CBD in each bottle is a combination of two powerful cannabinoids, CBD and CBDa ,to support a healthy lifestyle. The most abundant cannabinoid found in Tasty Drops is cannabidiol (CBD); a widely studied constituent of the cannabis plant, believed to possess many benefits. CBD does not cause any sort of “high,” as is typically associated with cannabis. Similarly, CBDa doesn’t cause a high, but research suggests various benefits.

This tasty cannabidiol oil is made in the USA from legally imported hemp and ships all over the world.

How to use Tasty Drops

The manufacturer suggests a serving size of 15 drops once or twice a day. There’s approximately 7.5mg of phytocannabinoids per 15 drops. While this serving size may be perfect for some people, it’s important to understand that everybody is different. There is no set, standard serving size for hemp oil – so we encourage you experiment to find your best regimen. You may find that you need to take more to start, letting it build up in your system, and then can gradually reduce that amount. Or if you’ve taken hemp oil supplements before or feel it’s working well, you may choose to reduce the serving to conserve product while maintaining the same results.

To use Tasty Drops, place the drops under your tongue, holding it there for 60-90 seconds, and then swallow. By keeping the hemp oil in your mouth for a minute or longer, you are allowing it to absorb into your body quicker. Otherwise, it must first travel through your digestive system.


  • Spearmint
  • Berry
  • Vanilla
  • Natural (Unflavored)

“What does your hemp oil taste like?” is a question we hear repeatedly, and we completely understand why.

If you’ve ever used hemp oil before, you know that it has a peculiar, earthy flavor. The best way we’ve found to describe it is, remember when you were 3 and passionate about trying new things like scooping up a fresh patch of grass and dirt and promptly eating it? That’s essentially what unflavored hemp oil tastes like. Some people love it and others can’t stand it.

Tasty Drops is for those looking for a great tasting option, which makes it easier to stick to your hemp supplement routine. All flavors perform great in masking that hempy taste. For a strong, minty flavor with a pleasant dash of sweetness, we recommend Chocolate Mint or Spearmint. Or try Vanilla for a subtle, sweet taste and pleasant aroma.

Vaporizing with a vape pen or another device offers the same immediate benefits of smoking. But since a vaporizer heats the cannabis flower or oil without burning it, the active ingredients are inhaled as a vapor and no smoke is involved. This makes it a healthier alternative to smoking.




 This is one of the easiest vaporizers to use, perfect for people new to vaping.

The Alternate Vape CBD Vape Kit has everything you need to get started with vaping CBD. The kit includes:

  • 1x Case
  • 1x Battery
  • 1x USB Charger
  • 1x Pre-Filled Vape Cartridge (250mg CBD)


What is a CBD Vape Shot?

The Vape Shot is a pre-filled vaporizer tank formulated with a high-CBD hemp extract. This hemp extract contains 250mg CBD and lasts for approximately 300-500 puffs depending on use. The CBD Vape Shot is available in three great flavors that are created with natural plant terpenes.


Do I Need the Kit?

If you do not have a low-voltage (max 4.9V) vaporizer battery, you should order this kit. We’ll include all the necessary components to start vaping, plus a convenient carrying case.

Once you’ve ordered the Alternate Vape Kit, you don’t need to order the kit again. Instead, you can purchase the Vape Shot separately.

To clarify, the CBD Vape Shot can be thrown away once the oil is gone. Just make sure to only throw away the tank — don’t toss the battery! You can reuse the battery with a new Vape Shot.


Why Choose Alternate Vape?

Vaping is a relaxing, efficient, and tasty way to incorporate CBD hemp oil into your daily life.

The downside, however, is that most CBD vape oils are made with propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. If you’re looking to support your body naturally with CBD, you may be hesitant to use a vape oil with a PG/VG base.

Alternate Vape is proudly made with no PG or VG! Instead, Alternate Vape has formulated a vape oil with an MCT (fractionated coconut) oil base. You can be confident in knowing that each ingredient in the CBD vape shot is all-natural.

In the past, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin were necessary in order to keep CBD evenly distributed throughout a vape oil. Thanks to new research and experimentation, Alternate Vape was completely reformulated to be all-natural, containing only CBD, MCT (coconut) oil, and plant terpenes for flavor.

How to Use CBD Vape Kit

As you puff on this vaporizer pen, lights around the bottom of the pen will light up in red. If they do not light up, or start blinking intermittently, it’s time to charge! Twist off the battery and twist it onto the USB charger. Charge the battery through your computer (the computer must be turned on) or use a USB wall charger.

Use this product intermittently throughout the day. If you vape more than 4 times per minute, it’s possible to damage the coil, which can give the oil a burnt taste.
