CBD oil has a lot of uses, and people are only just beginning to find them all. We already know that it helps with anxiety, depression, pain, inflammation, and a whole host of other things. However, many people do not know the best way to take their CBD oil. You could, of course, just drink the stuff directly, but most people don’t want to do that. CBD oil has a slightly bitter taste that most people don’t like, so you need to get creative here. With that fact in mind, let’s go over some of the most common ways to take CBD oil.
It is appropriate that we start with the newest option on the scene, which is vaping. This is an alternative to smoking and produces fewer harmful combustion products. You can buy CBD vape juice from various places and put it into any vaping rig. This vape juice mostly consists of CBD oil and vegetable glycerin, which is just used as a medium. This turns it into a cloud that mostly consists of water vapor, though it will still be infused with the benefits that you want.
The main advantage of vaping is the fact that, like smoking, vaping will put the CBD directly into your bloodstream. This results in a faster-acting product. Not only that, but more of the CBD is able to enter your system when it goes through such a direct route. Not only is this a quick and convenient route, but it also allows you to utilize all sorts of interesting flavors.
2. Culinary Use
Whether you’ve admitted it or not, you’ve probably fantasized about being a high-end chef while cooking your dinner. For that reason, you might be able to get excited about the possibility of using CBD in your cooking. Certainly, this is one of the most convenient methods because (obviously) you have to eat anyway. It is easy to put CBD oil into many common dishes, opening up all kinds of room for creativity.
In general, CBD oil tends to mix best with sweet items. Things that are greasy and fatty (like beef stew, for instance) do not usually blend as well with the unique taste of Cannabis. When eaten, CBD is processed by the liver and eventually goes into the bloodstream. Of course, we should mention that CBD oil is likely to change the taste of any foods to which it is added.
3. Sublingual Dosing
If you aren’t familiar with this term, it refers to any medicine that is taken by placing it under the tongue. Once it dissolves, the mucous membranes in your mouth will absorb the CBD and carry it into your system. Usually, it takes about 90 seconds for the medicine to dissolve. So, why would someone bother with this method? Well, this one is becoming more popular because it offers the best of two worlds.
Like smoking, sublingual use allows you to process the entire digestive process (including the stomach and liver) and put the CBD directly into your blood. This means that you get the fast-acting benefits of smoking without having to inhale any smoke. For people with lung issues who cannot safely smoke CBD oil, sublingual use is a great alternative.
4. Mixed Smoking
If you really want to get a concentrated super-dose of CBD, you can choose to mix your CBD oil with some smokable hemp flowers. Also called “buds,” these are the structures that contain the majority of the plant’s CBD. We are mainly talking about CBD oil here, but these two products can mix very well. You start by putting some of your Hemp flowers in a pipe. Make sure you break them up and remove any seeds or stems first, of course.
Once you have done this, put a drop or two of CBD oil on top of the Hemp in the bowl. Now, just get your lighter and smoke normally. As the oil gets hot, it will seep down into the bowl. As it does, it will be absorbed by the broken-up Hemp in the bowl, infusing it with even more CBD.
5. Use of Topical Products
All of this is great for people who are going to use their CBD internally, but what about external use? After all, CBD is known to be very good for the skin and to guard against acne, eczema, and a number of other skin problems. For external use, there are all kinds of topical products made from Hemp. These include ointments, lotions, shampoos, salves, conditioners, and more.
When you rub a CBD-containing product into the surface of your skin, it is absorbed by your pores and interacts directly with the surface cells. It doesn’t get the CBD into your bloodstream, but that isn’t what you want for a topical problem. Because of CBD’s pain-blocking properties, some people also use this as a massage oil for sore muscles and aching joints.
6. CBD Capsules
If you just want to take your CBD with minimal time and fuss, some CBD capsules are a good way to go. When it’s time to take your medicine, you can just swallow one or two of these little capsules, and the job is done: No cooking, no waiting, nothing. For this reason, many people prefer this form of CBD. It’s also a great option for those who don’t like the taste of Cannabis, as the taste factor is removed entirely. At most, you might taste a little bit of weed when you burp.
Another great thing about capsules is the fact that they are pre-portioned. You don’t have to worry about taking too much or too little as long as you follow the instructions. Taking too much CBD oil isn’t likely to hurt you, but there is some evidence to suggest that it’s hard on your liver to process too much at once.
There are several other options out there, but these are probably the most common ones. Stirling’s CBD Oil’s can be enjoyed in many different ways and all of them should confer the essential benefits that all CBD users desire. We thank you for reading this article all the way to its end, and we hope that you will come back again.
