Along with medical marijuana, the THC-less CBD oil, or cannabidiol, has exploded in popularity, and for good reason. CBD oil is a powerful natural medicine with science-confirmed benefits. Whether looking to treat Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, or just to improve your general wellbeing, CBD oil is an excellent choice.
But how do you take the oil in order to get CBD benefits? There are a multitude of ways to consume the oil, so let’s take a look at the three best.
This is the best method for adults with some level of experience in vaping. It shouldn’t be taught to children, as it is likely too complicated. The CBD oil can be either inhaled with a vape pen, or a proprietary product such as the excellent CBDoobie.
The reason inhalation is the best method is that the cannabidiol enters straight into the lungs, bypassing your liver, and is quickly diffused into your bloodstream. This makes it the fastest delivery method, and the most efficient, with more of the pure product entering your bloodstream than any other method.
The closest delivery method to inhalation in terms of efficient delivery is sublingual delivery. It is possible to absorb pure CBD oil, tinctures, as well as concentrates from under the tongue. This allows the cannabidiol to be absorbed by your oral capillaries and quickly entered into the bloodstream. There is some remainder that will not be absorbed, and will instead be digested. Because of this, the patient will experience both the more immediate effects, as well as the longer-lasting effects from latent digestion.
Sublingual delivery is also one of the easiest methods, simply requiring that the patient hold the cannabidiol under their tongue for about 90 seconds. While not as effective as inhalation, the compounds that are absorbed will still bypass the digestive tract and thus the filtering system of the liver.
Ingestion is the least preferred method because it is the least efficient, but that doesn’t make it a bad method at all. In fact, it’s perfect for beginners and young children. There’s less chance of making a mistake, spilling oil, or tasting the CBD oil (which doesn’t taste bad to most people, but may to children).
CBD oil is available in capsule form, beverages, foods, and can be mixed with a variety of products. Feel free to experiment by combining CBD oil with juice, baked goods, candy, salad dressing—the sky is really the limit.
Once swallowed, the CBD oil will be metabolized in the liver, and active compounds enter the bloodstream. While less effective or fast than other methods, it is a perfectly fine delivery system, and you will still reap the effects. After all, this is how just about every nutrient enters the body.
Or, find pre-made edibles, such as CBDoobie’s Gummy Bears.
