How should I take CBD? It’s a common question for newcomers to the world of CBD to ask. There are so many different methods of application for CBD products that it can be very overwhelming when you’re trying to decide on which product is right for you, so here are a few tips.
How Should I Take CBD? The Different Methods of CBD Application
Capsules and Softgels
Capsules and softgels are what people think of most when they think of taking any type of supplement and if you prefer the more traditional modes of supplementation then these are a good option for you. Capsules and softgels come in a range of potencies and have quite a few different manufacturers.
Sublingual products are usually oils that are placed under the tongue using a dropper. Of the various types of CBD products, sublingual products have a reputation for being the fastest acting, particularly when used for soothing effects.
Edible CBD products are another great way of getting CBD into your system quite quickly, particularly if eaten on an empty stomach. Another benefit to edible products is that they tend to have a more appealing taste and there is a huge variety of flavour profiles to choose from.
Topical products are applied directly to the skin. These products include balms, cleansers, lotions, and salves. There are CBD topical products that are promoted for use on skin irritation, for use against signs of ageing, and for use to ease pain symptoms. The great thing about topical products is that they’re easy to apply and they often incorporate other products such as moisturizers.
Inhaled products are another type of product that is known for being fast acting. While most people think of products that have to be smoked when we talk about inhaled CBD products, there are also other options for inhaled CBD. Terpenes can be used similarly to essential oils and can deliver their benefits quite quickly using a diffuser.
Inhaled products can also come in spray forms which are great for a lighter application and they also have so much scent variety that you always have plenty of scent profiles to choose from.
Some people also choose to “vape”. This is a fast acting method of taking in CBD, but there are some drawbacks to vaping so it’s always best to talk to your doctor before vaping since it can impact your respiratory health particularly if you have a pre-existing respiratory condition. It is for this reason that we don’t sell CBD vape products in our online store.
