CBD edibles
VaporizingWith more people turning to CBD, finding the right method of consumption has become a big issue. This is because there are different ways to consume the cannabidiol which means that people are searching for one that works for them. From CBD edibles such as gummies, brownies, or chocolate edibles to tinctures and other methods, finding the right one means doing a little research.
What follows are a few of the more common methods that people use to consume CBD in one form or another.
Vaporizing
Vaping has been around for several years, but only recently has CBD been added to the mix. For the most part, CBD oil is heated to the point where it turns into a vapor, allowing a person to pull the CBD into the lungs for maximum absorption.
The advantages are considerable as you bypass the digestive system. Plus, vaporizing is proven technology that basically provides the benefits of smoking without any of the issues associated with that form of ingestion. However, there have been reports of people becoming sick when vaporizing CBD. The news of such incidents is relatively rare, but widespread enough that this current method is being investigated further.
CBD ediblesCBD Edibles & Beverages
Put simply, these are treats that have CBD infused into them. Much like an extra ingredient into gummies, brownies, or chocolate bars. They can even be included in common beverages, including energy drinks. Of the many edibles available, the chocolate edibles offer a tasty treat that carries the same flavor with or without the cannabidiol present. This means that you can choose a treat that is most familiar while still getting the benefits from the CBD inside.
The downside is that CBD absorption takes more time compared to most other methods. This is especially true when you have a full stomach.
Tinctures
This simple method consists of placing a drop of CBD oil under the tongue. The CBD will rapidly be absorbed into the skin. The advantages of tinctures are obvious. They offer a fast delivery system for CBD and they are relatively inexpensive. About the only downside is whether you like the taste of CBD oil, but that is usually a minor issue.
CBD TincturesSkin Patches
This type of patch has been used for decades to allow medicine and other compounds to flow through the skin. While perhaps most associated with helping people quite smoking, it is also a delivery system for CBD. And while the patch does allow the CBD to pass through the skin, it is not as effective compared to tinctures or vaporizers when it comes to how much CBD can get through.
However, for topical needs the skin patches work quite well. This means that if you need muscle relaxation or reduced inflammation on a specific area under the skin such as for soreness or pain from the joints, then this method may work best for you.
Searching for the right method to ingest cannabidiol can be a “win-win” for consumers. This means trying various CBD edibles, including tasty treats such as chocolate edibles to discovering methods such as tinctures that deliver the cannabidiol needed.
