What's the Best Way to Take CBD?

Length: 5 minutes

CBD Overview

So, cannabidiol, also known as CBD is a naturally occurring compound from the Cannabis plant. CBD is best taken in a full-spectrum, organic extract derived from the hemp plant. This way it contains all of the other cannabinoids, as well as the beneficial terpenes, and other compounds.

Right now, by law, the extracts must have less than 0.3 percent THC, so it won't create a psychoactive (“high”) experience. Full-spectrum hemp extract can now be bought at a variety of places, locally and online.

How Can You Take CBD?

There are four common ways to get CBD into your system:

  • Sublingually (under the tongue)
  • Ingesting it like food
  • Applying it topically
  • Inhalation

So, let's talk a little bit about each one of these.

Sublingual

Number one is sublingually. This method is where you take a dropper with the recommended amount of full-spectrum hemp extract or CBD, and hold it under your tongue for one to two minutes before you swallow it. This can provide the powerful benefits of CBD and the other phytocannabinoids into your system very rapidly.

Ingestion

The next method is through ingestion, and there are many different edible varieties of CBD available. You can get CBD and hemp in food like gummies, sweets, and coffee. You can take it in capsules, or have a drink that has CBD in it already. When you ingest CBD, it takes awhile for you to feel the effects and the benefits because it has to go through your digestive system and liver. It usually takes about one to two hours to feel if you ingest it into your system.

Topical

The next way to get benefits from CBD is through topical application. There are lotions, balms, ointments, and oils that can be applied directly to your skin. Using CBD in this way is helpful when dealing with sore muscles, inflammation, or any type of skin condition.

Inhalation

The last method to get CBD into your system is through inhalation, and that can be done through vaping, or through smoking CBD. This is not the one I recommend because I think there are more natural, organic methods to get the CBD into your system.

Now, which way is the best way for you to add it to your body? Well, everyone is different, but it really depends on what results you're looking for.

Personally, I recommend an organic, full-spectrum hemp extract in an MCT or hemp oil.

How to Find the Right CBD Product

There's a lot of different products out there. It's very confusing for people, but you need to look at the company that's producing it. Look at the quality and third-party analysis of the hemp extract to make sure that not only does it contain CBD, but it contains the full-spectrum — the entourage — of all the phytocannabinoids that your system needs to produce that homeostasis and balance within your system.

Another interesting fact is that eating citrus fruits after taking a CBD or a hemp extract may increase, or improve, the absorption. So for sleep, I recommend taking the hemp extract at least one to two hours before bed.
