This is How you Take CBD Oils

October 09, 2020

CBD Oils are one of the most popular CBD products on the market. These liquids are convenient, easy to use, and versatile. But how do you consume CBD oils?

CBD oils typically come in glass bottles with droppers attached to the lid. The dropper helps you control the amount of liquid you use, making it easier to give yourself the correct CBD dosage

There are three main methods for using CBD.

Method 1: Squeeze it under your tongue

This is the simplest method of taking CBD oil, and by far the most popular. 

Simply squeeze a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue. But instead of swallowing immediately, hold it there for around 60 seconds, and then swallow. This gives the CBD time to enter your bloodstream via the capillaries in the mouth.

In fact, sublingual consumption has shown to have a 12-35% higher absorption rate than just swallowing CBD.

Because the CBD is entering your bloodstream directly, it works quite fast. You can expect it to take effect in as little as ten minutes, depending on your weight, metabolism, and individual biology.

Helpful hint: Try not to let the tip of the dropper touch your mouth, if possible. As this could introduce bacteria into the bottle.

Method 2: Add it to beverages or food

If you don’t like the taste of CBD oil or want to mix it up, try squeezing a few drops into your morning coffee or over a snack.

This method has one drawback, though. If you swallow CBD directly when it's mixed into a beverage (instead of holding it under your tongue), it tends to be less bioavailable— meaning less of it actually goes through your system. This makes it less potent. It also takes longer to get to work because it needs to go through your digestive system before entering your bloodstream. So if you opt for this method you may want to consider upping the dose by about a third.

Remember that oil and water don’t mix, so an oil-based CBD product might float on top of your beverage.

Method 3: Massage it into your skin

Do you know that you can use our CBD oil on your skin? 

Many people use CBD topicals to address pain, inflammation, and acne. Our CBD oil also contains organic ginger, which is a natural anti-inflammatory that complements the intrinsic benefits of CBD. As an example, hikers use it to help with recovery.

To use our CBD topically, you can massage the oil directly onto your skin, or add a few drops to your daily moisturizer to create your own CBD-infused topical. 

If you apply CBD to your skin, it won’t be able to enter your bloodstream. While it can provide pain relief and improve the overall health of your skin, it’s best to take CBD internally for internal issues (such as anxiety and sleep issues).

To find the best way to take a CBD oil, you should experiment to see what suits you best. Bear in mind that CBD is like a multivitamin: you don’t always “feel” it working, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t working. Sometimes it takes a few days of consistent use for it to work properly. Try different methods and consider whether it seems to help your symptoms. 

If CBD oils aren't right for you, CBD capsules are a great, convenient way to consume CBD as well.
