There are many ways to ingest CBD including vaping, topical product use, tinctures, sprays, smoking and even suppositories.
Oils are the most popular product because of its easy use and high-quality and effectiveness. It is most often consumed orally and used sublingually, placing drops under the tongue before swallowing. This is the second fastest form of consumption other than dabbing or vaping.
Capsules are another alternative to those that don’t want to consume it orally.
Topical creams are mixed with other nutrients such as tea tree oil to help heighten the CBD’s effects. These creams are applied directly to the skin where the CBD oil is delivered throughout the body.
Vaporizing CBD is done by melting down a CBD isolate and mixing it with an oil.
Dabbing is a vaporization method of consuming cannabis concentrates that is applied to a hot surface then inhaled.
Just because you’re buying a product derived from a plant, doesn’t necessarily make it safe. The first thing to consider when selecting a product is understand where that plant came from. Only choose products that are sourced from non-GMO, pesticide free plants to avoid ingesting any harsh chemicals in your body. Remember that price doesn’t determine quality either. Look for how much cannabidiol you are paying for in these CBD products. Also, not all extraction methods are safe either. Be cautious when choosing products in terms of whether or not you want products with non-psychoactive effects or not.
Some CBD products are described as full spectrum meaning they contain other cannabinoids. This wide range of cannabinoid spectrum is known as the entourage effects, which is the belief that they have a greater health benefits when working together rather than as one single molecule itself. The interaction of these cannabinoids stimulations the endocannabinoid system and how they interact in the body (upping the effects overall).
While CBD affects each person differently, it’s important that dosages are customized to each person using them. Legally we cannot make dosage recommendations due to FDA regulations.
We cannot legally tell you whether or not you will pass a drug test while consuming CBD products. It is recommended that all consumers concerned about drug screening do additional research prior to making the decision to consume them. These non-psychoactive cannabinoids don’t test for THC typically because of their small level of concentration (.3% or less).
