There are several ways to deliver CBD to the body. Learn More about CBD Tinctures, Topicals, Edibles, and Vapable CBD and figure out the perfect regimen for you!
- Sublingual Tinctures
This is one of the most commonly practices methods of taking CBD products. The user places a desired amount of drops under the tongue and waits 30 seconds prior to swallowing. This method is convenient, requires no extra accessories, is easy to control, and has long-lasting effects when used as part of a daily regimen.
By using tincture as a CBD delivery method, you are allowing the product to be absorbed sublingually (under the tongue), rather than subjecting the material to be processed by the digestive tract. Because of this, you will likely experience the benefit of stronger and quicker support.
CBD Edibles are another discreet and convenient way to take CBD. Studies have identified something called the “first pass effect” with CBD-infused snacks and drinks. CBD is partially broken down by the liver and digestive tract during the first pass effect. This means that the CBD may take a few hours to kick in, and you’ll only absorb a percentage of it. With that being said, CBD Edibles are a wonderful way to supplement or boost your daily CBD regimen.
- Topical Application
CBD-infused topical applications are believed to be very effective. The term CBD Topical refers to the application of CBD through a lotion, cream, or ointment on your skin. Advocates of topical CBD suggest that these products work by interacting with endocannabinoid receptors found under the skin (instead of being absorbed by the bloodstream), which makes topical products appropriate for targeting pain in a specific area. Topical CBD products may take up to an hour to take effect and can last up to 5 hours.
Many people believe CBD via inhalation to be the quickest way of administering CBD to the body. Vapable CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the tiny air sacs of the lungs. CBD can be inhaled using a tool, called a vape device, which creates a breathable vapor by heating up a concentrated mixture of CBD-infused "vape juice" or "e-liquid" so that it can be inhaled. This method may take some getting used to if you do not regularly practice vaping.
