Cannabidiol is available as a 100 mg/mL strawberry-flavored oral solution.[2] The oil-based solution is clear, ranging in color from colorless to yellow. It should be stored at room temperature and not refrigerated or frozen. Any CBD solution remaining in the bottle 12 weeks after it was first opened should be discarded. Each bottle of CBD is packaged with an adapter for use with a calibrated oral syringe to ensure accuracy of the dose given. Two 5 mL syringes are included in the package. A 1 mL oral syringe may be obtained through the pharmacy for smaller doses.
