Best Ways To Take CBD

If you have done thorough research on CBD and you have decided to try it out, we’ll go through various forms that CBD may come in and some common uses. I understand that you might have read a lot of positives about CBD but you don’t realize how confusing it can be when you dip into the market. There are so many products to choose from and this might prove to be a stumbling block. As long as you are buying from a legit company, then you don’t have to worry about the products they are selling.

Figuring out which method of taking CBD can be quite challenging but not anymore. This article will walk you through the most common ways of taking CBD. I am going to analyze all the ways so that you choose the one that suits you best.


Under The Tongue


CBD tinctures are the most common way to ingest CBD. Tinctures are quite popular and the best thing about them is that they come in different flavors. You can choose your favorite flavor so that it becomes easy to hold the tincture under your tongue until it is absorbed.

A tincture should be accompanied by a dropper. This dropper will help you measure out the proper dosage. Once you scoop the CBD infused oil, then you can drop it under the tongue and allow it to sit for a few minutes. This method is referred to as sublingual administration and is so effective.

As much as sublingual administration is so effective, you might experience a strong and bitter taste if you choose unflavored CBD oil.




The other famous way CBD oil is available is in the form of capsules. They are easy to consume and they are available in 25m and 50mg potencies. The good thing about capsules is that the amount of CBD oil in them is already measured. At least you don’t have to fumble with measurements.

Capsules are an excellent way to ingest CBD and completely avoid the taste. This is especially key if you’re not too excited about the taste. They are available in the form of a pill or a soft gel. Capsules are easy to swallow and you can carry them whenever you are on the go. The only downside of capsules is the fact that they take time to act. This means that pills are not ideal for people who are looking for quick relief.


Vape Oil


The other way of taking CBD oil is by inhaling it. This is where you use a vape pen or dab to heat and inhale the vapor into your lungs. Vaping is actually considered the quickest way to get CBD into your system. Unfortunately, it may also only stay in your system for about 10 to 20 minutes.

In order to get the best results from vaping CBD oil, you should have a good inhalation technique. You have to get the cannabinoid molecules deep in there for the product to work well. Otherwise, you will be wasting your CBD oil.

You should be careful when shopping for vape pens as not all of them are good. Experts recommend that you avoid disposable vape pens and e-liquids that have propylene glycol in the list of ingredients.

Vaping is simple and first-timers find it easy to get the hang of it during the first day of use. On the other hand, vaping is not that safe because there are some health concerns linked with some of the ingredients used in CBD e-liquids. Of course, some companies avoid using such ingredients, but it is rare to find such products.


CBD Edibles


I believe you guys know that CBD is also infused in edibles such as cookies, cakes, and gummies. Edibles have become quite popular for their ability to mask the taste of CBD. Besides, edibles contain a pre-measured dose of full-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate.

Edibles provide you with plenty of choices, thus making them one of the best ways to take CBD. Gummies have become quite popular because of the different flavors and the fact that you can consume them from anywhere.

The CBD contained in edibles gets to the body after its ingested. The process takes a long time and this means that you have to wait for the effects to kick in.


CBD Topicals


CBD oils and topicals can be used to nourish the skin, it’s also an excellent way to completely control where and what body part to target. CBD can be infused into creams, moisturizers, and lotions. Studies show CBD might help with various skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, and acne.

Apply the topical you are using directly on the affected areas. CBD topicals are not only used for skin conditions but also in some beauty products.

Some topicals may also help to relieve pain in sore areas. These creams are applied to the skin and allowed to sit there until the pain subsides. Topicals are easy to use and can be applied even when you are traveling.

Because CBD comes in so many different products, you have several choices on how you want to add it to your daily routine. Taking the time to experiment with different product types and dosages is the real key to determining how you want to take it and what works best for your particular situation.

The choice you make should be influenced by your personal preferences, the areas affected, ease of use, and acting time. Of course, you can try different methods and see what suits you best.

It is also important that you consult with a doctor before trying CBD. Doctors will guide you on how to use CBD and help you evaluate if there are any dangers that may arise especially if you are on medication.
