When using the drops, the best way to take them is sublingually. And, the easiest way to do this is by setting a spoon on a counter and dripping the desired number of drops (see Question/Answer #2 and #5 above) into the spoon. Then, by putting the spoon into your mouth, put the liquid under your tongue for about 90 seconds, then swallow. For those who prefer to take their drops in a drink, this can be done. However, because the stomach acids work very quickly to break down the cannabinoids, it is only partially effective. When taking in drinks/foods, we recommend taking approximately twice as much as if you’re taking it sublingually.
