When it comes to CBD there are many questions people have, one of the most asked is what’s the best way to use CBD? With so many options available it can be quite overwhelming, especially since CBD works differently for everyone. For example, some people find vaping CBD the most beneficial while others swear by a topical applied directly to the afflicted area works the best. There is no right or wrong answers, it all comes down to preference of consumption. We’re going to break down the most popular ways of using CBD to help our customers decide what may be right for them.
Vaping / dabbing:
One of the most popular ways to consume CBD mainly because of high bioavailability, meaning a higher percentage of CBD will be able to enter your systemic circulation and produce active effects. During vaporization CBD enters your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream rather than passing through your liver which creates higher bioavailability since the CBD won’t face the risk of absorption when passing though or be broken down by liver enzymes. By vaporizing CBD e-liquid, concentrates or isolate it’s also possible to feel the effects much sooner than other methods as well. If you’re not a fan of vaping or dabbing that doesn’t mean CBD isn’t for you – there are more ways to experience the benefits!
Tinctures / sublinguals:
Tinctures are liquid based (hemp oil, MCT, ect.) CBD products intended for sublingual consumption. A tincture can be taken through a dropped directly under the tongue or mixed into food or drink. Taking CBD sublingually is considered one of the fastest means of absorption and tends to be considered a better alternative for those not interested in vaping or dabbing CBD.
Another popular method for utilizing CBD comes in the form of topicals which are CBD infused lotions, balms and oils that are made to be absorbed through the skin at the source of pain, soreness or inflammation. This is ideal for consumers who prefer a more localized form of relief. Different topicals have different benefits to offer depending on the way they are processed and the ingredients that are used. It’s best to check out the ingredients for any topicals you’re interested in trying out and figure out whatever will work best for you.
Everyone is different in the way they react to CBD, the only way to know for sure what is the best method for consumption for you is to experiment. Just remember, it’s always better to start with low doses and work your way up slowly until you find what works for you no matter what method you choose.
