How do you take CBD?
CBD can be taken in several different ways, depending on what a person is most comfortable with or what the person wishes to achieve.
CBD Oils, are the most common and well known way to ingest CBD. A carrier oil is infused with CBD (which is fat soluble) and is then taken as a drop under the tongue where it is absorbed through your sub-lingual capillaries. This is a quick and efficient way for CBD to reach your system.
Capsules are an easy way of getting an exact dosage every time. There are different capsules, some filled with the CBD infused oil, others with micro-encapsulated powders.
CBD Capsules need to navigate the digestive system and therefore can take longer to reach the Endocannabinoid system.
Micro-encapsulation or Liposomal technology are commonly used within the pharmaceutical industry to help your body absorb nutrients/supplements/medication at a better rate, making them more “bio-available” to your body. This allows your body to use more CBD, producing better or stronger results than a regular product.
CBD Edibles are an easy, fun way to get CBD into your system. Edible items such as gummy sweets, chocolates, biscuits, even honey, teas and other edible items are infused with CBD for a tasty way to ingest CBD.
Because edibles need to navigate the digestive system, the CBD can take longer to reach the Endocannabinoid system.
Topical creams, balms and lotions infused with CBD are useful for treating skin issues and for topical relief from inflammation of, and to promote healing of, muscles and joints.
Smoking CBD is a quick and effective way of getting CBD into your system. Vaping CBD allows a measured amount of CBD to be inhaled directly to the lungs. Of course the ancient practice of smoking dried Cannabis flower is still very common throughout the world.
