The 4 ways to use CBD
How do I properly use CBD under my tongue? Taking CBD sublingually is incredibly easy. CBD oil, such as Tinctures, needs to be put under the tongue and held for at least 60 seconds to allow sufficient time for the molecules to diffuse across the epithelial cells..
Benefits of Taking CBD Oil Sublingually
- Increased Bioavailability
Since sublingual application bypasses the metabolic process of digestion, far less of the raw CBD is lost. The term bioavailability refers to how much of a substance can be utilized by the body and differs depending on the method. As for CBD products, the only method with higher bioavailability than sublingual is inhalation.
- Faster to Take Effect
Similarly to increased bioavailability, bypassing the slow digestion process means that the effects of CBD tinctures taken sublingually can be experienced much faster. Whereas it can take upwards of 30-45 minutes to benefit from oral consumption of CBD, taking CBD oil sublingually can yield results in only a few minutes.
2 Oral dosing of CBD/eating
Eating CBD through edibles such as gummies or treats is a popular way to enjoy the benefits of CBD. It is important to note that when ingesting an edible, you will have to wait 30-45 minutes to begin the benefits of the product.
For our customer that doesn’t like to drink or smoke their CBD, ingesting our products is the most popular way to enjoy a “treat” and gain the benefits of the hemp cannabinoids.
3 Smoking or Vaping CBD
This is the fastest way to gain bioavailability and begin to enjoy the benefits of CBD. It is the least popular way our customers enjoy our products. If you are an ex-cigarette or nonsmoker, the benefits of CBD can be enjoyed by eating or sublingual methods.
4 CBD Topical/Rubs
CBD can be absorbed in the skin. However, it is important to understand that this technique is much different than ingesting CBD sublingually or via inhalation. When CBD is absorbed topically it does not enter the bloodstream but rather connects with nearby cannabinoid receptors through the skin pores.
This is most popularly used for tissue injuries by rubbing creams directly where the aches and pain are occurring in the body. It takes 15-30 minutes to gain relieve when using this method.
