What are the different ways you can take CBD?
Let’s say you’ve decided to give Cannabidiol (CBD) a try because you have heard lots about all of the amazing things that it can do for you, and now you’re wondering which CBD product you’d prefer to use. Well you’ve come to the right place because here you’ll find out a little more information about some of the most common CBD products on the market.
There are many different ways you can try CBD, including vaping, using topical products, tinctures, capsules, suppositories, coffees and sprays. You name it, you can get it. The choice really is yours. To start you off, let’s take a look at six of the most popular forms of administering CBD.
CBD Oil and Sublingual Administration
Oils are easily the most popular and highly sought after products on the market, due to its ease of consumption, accurate dosing, overall high-quality, and effectiveness. CBD oil is meant to be consumed orally and most often used sublingually. Sublingual administration involves placing drops under your tongue and holding it there for several seconds before swallowing. Using CBD sublingually is the second fastest form of consumption (the first being vaping or dabbing). Some find the taste of CBD oil very appealing while others do not like the hemp flavour. For those who are not fond of the taste of hemp, CBD drops can be placed in a beverage like orange juice or foods like salad dressing to dilute the taste.
A word of warning: CBD oils that are mixed with MCT coconut oil are not meant to be vaped. Vaping MCT coconut oil can be dangerous to an individual’s health and should be avoided.
For those who are not fond of the taste of CBD oils, capsules are an excellent alternative. Capsules offer people all the benefits of CBD, as well the ultimate ease of consumption and accurate dosing. Each capsule will contain a stipulated amount of CBD so you can easily achieve your daily target dosage with minimum math required. Capsules are lightweight and easy to carry in your bag or pocket.
CBD Topical Creams
Topical creams are designed to be applied directly to the skin, and will deliver CBD oil throughout your body. Topical CBD creams are a unique product because CBD can be mixed with other essential nutrients such as lavender, tea tree, or aloe, which all help to heighten the benefits of CBD. These products often smell amazing too! If you need help with a particular area of your skin, then a topical cream can be applied to the area of concern for a concentrated effect.
Smoking any kind of cannabis product can cause irritation and inflammation in the lungs, even when smoking high strains of CBD. Vaporising CBD, however, is an excellent alternative to avoid these types of issues, and offers one the quickest ways to feel the effects of CBD. CBD vape oils can be purchased or created easily on your own by melting down a high concentrate CBD isolate and mixing it with VG or PG oil. Disposable vape pens offer maximum convenience and ultimate luxury. You can browse the wonderful range CBD Porter have on offer at our online shop.
Infusing CBD into food or liquids
Adding CBD to the foods you already love is a great way of taking CBD. While you can put CBD oil drops in orange juice and other liquids, CBD isolates are excellent for cooking because they are tasteless, odourless and are easily soluble into products like coconut oil, butter, and honey. Once infused, these products can be used to cook with to make a variety of dishes, including pasta dishes, dips, and desserts like brownies. Infused honey or agave nectar can also be used to sweeten coffee or tea.
Dabbing is defined as the consumption method associated with the flash vaporisation of cannabis concentrates (cannabidiol) once applied to a hot surface and inhaled. Concentrates, like 99% pure CBD isolate is more potent than flowers, so a little bit goes a long way and is known to be one of the best ways to get immediate and effective relief. CBD Isolate also contains less plant material, so you are inhaling more cannabidiol and less combusted resin.
