7 Ways To Use CBD
The result will always depend on several factors.
CBD is booming today, and there may be a reason for that. While in theory, many positive effects of it are not proved, in reality, there’s much evidence that people can highly benefit from taking CBD. However, the result will always depend on several factors, including the quality of the product, the form of administering, and many more.
In this article, you’ll find a list of several ways to use CBD, including those traditional, like tinctures or oils and those unusual, such as inhalers or bath products. Read on to find your perfect way of taking CBD, and consider giving it a try.
Oil tinctures with CBD are among the oldest ways of taking CBD. These products are basically a liquid form of CBD that is administered under the tongue. You can find them in many forms: in a spray, droplets, or even in some cases a liquid. The liquid tincture is usually mixed with a medium, like honey, to make it easier to administer.
When taking tinctures, it’s important that you follow the instructions on the package. You should let the CBD absorb into your body as much as possible by applying it under your tongue. The CBD will then move into your blood through the capillaries - just keep in mind that it might take an hour or two before you start feeling the effects.
CBD is basically composed of CBD dissolved in a plant oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. CBD oils are also similar to tinctures in the sense that they are usually taken sublingually – under the tongue. However, unlike tinctures, you don’t need to use a medium to make the CBD absorption easier.
Whatever product you choose, you should always check the ingredients list so that you know what you’re taking. Some products may contain other ingredients, such as THC for example – if you aren’t aware of it, you may end up consuming too much and have unpleasant side effects. Another thing worth mentioning is that CBD oils must be kept in a dark place at room temperature and should be kept away from light – otherwise, they have a shorter shelf life and their properties may change.
CBD capsules are yet another form of taking CBD. They are really easy to use as all you have to do is swallow them with water and wait for the results to kick in.
However, there’s one major disadvantage, when talking about CBD capsules - although depending on the perspective it might be considered an advantage. You cannot really choose your dose - and by that, we mean that you can only choose the doses available, which usually are 10 mg, 25 mg, and sometimes 100 mg.
CBD edibles are food products that contain cannabinoids (in particular, CBD). They are very popular today not only because they are tasty but also because they allow you to easily control how much CBD you consume every time you eat them. Moreover, it’s proven that cannabis edibles are very effective in relieving pain and helping people relax, get rid of stress and anxiety, and improve their mood.
However, keep in mind that the effects will take more time to kick in than when using other methods, as they use the digestive system to enter your body.
Topicals and Lotions
As the name suggests, topicals and lotions are products that we apply on our skin (and sometimes even on our hair or nails). They differ from CBD oils in the sense that they don’t enter our bloodstream and therefore don’t have any psychoactive effect – they only affect the area of application directly. For example, if we apply a lotion on our skin, its main effect will be felt only on our skin – not deep inside our body like oils do, for example.
Topical products can be used to treat different parts of our body and help us relieve pain while also improving our overall health.
Some people don’t like taking their medicine orally because it makes them feel nauseous or dizzy. If this sounds like you, then you should try using an inhaler instead of a regular form of taking CBD (like oils or tinctures). Just inhale the vapor directly from the device as instructed by your doctor or from the instructions on the package.
CBD bath products come in the form of bath salts, foaming agents, lotions, and oils. The effects of CBD bath products are not the same as those of other forms of CBD – they simply help us relax and relieve stress and anxiety while also improving our mood and getting rid of pain. If you have trouble unwinding at the end of the day, then try using a CBD bath product – it will help you relax and feel great!
The Bottom Line
CBD is probably one of the most popular substances on the market today. And why wouldn’t it be? It has so many positive effects on the human body, that it shouldn’t come as a surprise that more and more people are deciding to use it to treat their conditions.
The popularity of CBD resulted in new ways of using CBD. Nowadays, there are so many, that including them all into one article would simply be impossible.
If you’re looking for the best way of using CBD for yourself, you have to keep in mind that not every method will work for everyone, so it might take a while before you find the right one for you. Good luck!
