How to Make the Most of Your CBD Oil?
Due to discovering its amazing health benefits, CBD oil made a real boom in the health and wellness market. It became a trend among people to take it either as medication, such as taking CBD for anxiety, or a supplement for improving and maintaining their health and overall wellbeing. Regardless of the reason for taking, CBD oil became very popular as a natural remedy.
As a result of the massive interest in this product, a lot of pharmaceutical companies and other independent manufacturers started producing it. Not only they produce CBD oil in form of liquid but they also started producing it in the form of edibles, lip balms, topic creams, and pills. That gave people a lot of new ways to use CBD oil as part of their daily routine and made using it much easier and interesting. It’s because a lot of people started creating CBD recipes. If you also use or want to start using it, here are 5 ways to make the most of your CBD oil.
Two Main Consumption Methods
Before we get deeper into the methods of taking and using CBD oil, we would like to refer to the two main ways you can use this product. Hence, you can take CBD oil either orally or topically. If you take it orally, you can consume it in the form of tinctures, edibles, or capsules, or vape it through a dry herb vaporizer or another vape device.
On the other hand, if you take it topically, you can use it in the form of a cream or a lip balm. Which form of CBD oil you choose depends on your preferences in terms of form and way of consumption. Now, let’s have a look at all the ways you can use CBD oil.
CBD Oil Under Your Tongue
There are several CBD products that you can take by placing them under your tongue. These products include CBD oil tinctures, sprays, and capsules. You just place a few drops under your tongue, hold them for 30 seconds, and then swallow them.
This way is very simple, highly-efficient, and has fast results. Yes, you will feel the effects very quickly because the oil is absorbed directly by the mucous membrane in your mouth. That means it doesn’t have to pass through the digestive system and get metabolized by the liver.
Due to the expansion of CBD oil on the market, manufacturers have also started producing CBD edibles. Therefore, you can find different CBD products you can eat, such as truffles, mints, and gummies. But since you are consuming CBD oil as food, the effect will come in around 2 hours since the edibles will need to be digested and metabolized by the liver.
CBD Oil Add-ins
Similarly to edibles, you can make your own kind-of-edibles by adding CBD oil to your food. For example, you can add CBD oil to your salad, thus ensuring you are consuming it in its original condition. Another very popular way is by adding it to your smoothies and shakes. Using this method is very easy and tasty. However, it will need more time until you feel the CBD oil’s effects, just like with edibles.
CBD Oil as Vape Juice
This is another trendy way of taking CBD oil. It’s actually very common among people who like to smoke and/or vape. It’s because they have the same (similar) feeling of smoking or vaping other juices, but they are inhaling a healthy product. Regardless of which vape device you choose, you will feel its effects really quickly. It’s because by inhaling CBD oil, it directly goes into your bloodstream and will affect you in around 10 minutes.
CBD Oil for Exterior Use
As it has been mentioned at the beginning of this article, apart from taking CBD oil orally, you can use it topically. In other words, you can use it externally, by using CBD topical creams and/or lip balms. Hence, all you need to do is find the right cream or lip balm for you and apply it on your skin and lips.
CBD creams are great for health conditions that affect your body, such as osteoarthritis which causes joint pain. It also helps with sore muscles, headaches, stiffed neck, and skin conditions, such as acne. On the other hand, CBD lip balms are perfect for chapped lips and for preventing lips’ damage from the cold weather. So make sure you have one this winter.
Choosing the form of CBD oil and using the same depends on you and your preferences. Regardless of which CBD product you choose, always make sure you have chosen a quality one. That’s the only way to stay safe and experience all the amazing benefits of CBD oil.
