Methods of Consumption and CBD Oil Uses
CBD oil use has become so popular in recent years that it's difficult to keep up with all of the available products. Not every product has the same level of effect on different consumers. The key is to experiment with different products, which have different CBD percentages, to find what works best for you. Here's a look at some of the most popular methods for CBD consumption.
How to Take CBD Oil
CBD oil can be taken in several different ways:
- Absorption with tinctures
- Topical application through skin
- Consumption via edibles (Gummy's) or mixed with food
Tinctures are one of the easiest methods to start experimenting with CBD oils. Our cherry-flavored tinctures all come in a bottle with a dropper for application. The dropper allows you to measure a precise CBD oil dosage. The tincture is then applied underneath the tongue with the dropper, for sublingual application.
CBD oil can be mixed with loose tobacco and rolled into a cigarette for smoking. Keep in mind that CBD tinctures contain only a small amount of THC, the chemical in cannabis that causes a person to become high. By smoking CBD oil, the cannabinoids in the oil make their way into the bloodstream via the lungs within about three minutes.
Vaping CBD Oil
CBD oil has potential health benefits that can be attained through vaping, which makes this a viable consumption form that is safer than vaping nicotine products. There are now thousands of different types of e-cigarettes on the market, allowing users to experiment endlessly with different vaping pens and CBD oils.
You also have many options available when it comes to topical CBD oils, which can be safely applied directly to the skin. Some varieties of topical CBD oils are available as beauty supplies, skin creams and lotions. Others are mixed with cooling menthol or other ingredients, to be used as a topical form of pain relief. Simply rub the topical CBD oil on the skin to experience the benefits.
Gummy's and other soft chews are another form of CBD consumption method. Known as "edibles," these popular forms of CBD oil each have a precise dosage, so you know exactly how much CBD you are consuming with each bite. This is a slow-acting form of CBD consumption, because it has to make its way through the digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream.
CMD Consumption FAQs
What is the highest mg of CBD oil available?
We carry a wide range of different concentrations of CBD products. Our CBD infused cherry Gummy's have a low concentration of just 10mg per Gummy. The highest concentration we offer is our 1,000mg Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Terpene Complex Tincture. We also have many different concentrations available between those ranges. Our advice is that you experiment with lower concentrations and work your way up until you find the products that work best for the results you want.
Does CBD oil give you energy?
It's important to note that all of our CBD oils have extremely low concentrations of THC (0.3%), which is the cannabinoid compound that makes people high and can cause drowsiness. CBD oil and tinctures have been shown to boost energy levels and have many additional health benefits. For example, CBD oil works as an all-natural anti-inflammatory, and it has been proven to have metabolism-boosting properties that can burn fat cells.
