An awesome benefit of CBD is how versatile it is. Outside of all its wellness benefits, there are numerous ways to consume your CBD. From capsules to tinctures, and everything in between, there are a lot of different ways to make sure you’re getting the benefits that come from CBD supplementation!
Let’s dive into the best ways for you to consume your CBD!
Before you figure out the best method to consume CBD, it might be a good idea to talk briefly about the benefits that come from CBD products.
What makes CBD so popular in the wellness industry is the overall benefit of supporting balance in the body’s endocannabinoid system.
When the human body, for any reason, falls out of balance, it triggers an internal alarm in the form of receptors. These receptors are outlined with tiny neural tissues that interact with a complex set of synapses and neural pathways known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Anytime something’s not quite right in the system, receptors let the ECS know the deal. In turn, the endocannabinoid system lets the brain know. From there, the brain lets you know again…and again…and again. The body has its own cannabinoids that help bring balance, known as endocannabinoids, but sometimes they can use a helping hand.
This is where CBD can give a helping hand. Using a natural CBD extract can help:
Those are just a few of the many benefits CBD can help you out. Now let’s dive into the best ways to take CBD.
After learning about the benefits of CBD, you can see there is a reason why CBD has become so popular. To start with which product might be right for you, we’ll break down CBD products into three basic categories:
We’ll make some suggestions and help you come to a decision, but how you consume CBD can be a unique experience and there may be some trial and error on your end. Let’s break them down!
If you’re in need of quick results, the best way to consume CBD might be a CBD Tincture.
To use a tincture, you grab a dropper and squirt the liquid in your mouth. The effects should be pretty quick with tinctures.
Tinctures are a liquid, so they digest very quickly and in most cases, quicker than softgels. They tend to be shorter-lasting than softgels though.
Tinctures are definitely the most versatile CBD product out there. You’re able to cook with it, add it to drinks, or simply drop it in your mouth. With that being said, it’s important to note that cooking with CBD will decrease the potency.
Softgels are the easiest way for you to consume CBD. You’re able to take a CBD softgel like any other capsule you may take. What makes our softgels stand apart from a majority of other softgels on the market is how our oil is encapsulated.
The oil extracted from our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp is put through our premium nanoemulsion technology, and this allows the phytocannabinoids inside of the hemp oil to be broken down into microscopic particles.
These molecules are as small as 25 nanometers, where industry standard runs 40 times the size. This is beneficial because the small size of the molecules allows them to be much more absorbable when ingested.
The best way to get the most out of your CBD softgels is to consume them earlier in the day with a small, high-fat meal. Consuming fats makes it easier for your body to digest the supplements, and will allow less of them to burn off all at once.
The body’s largest organ is your skin, and directly under the epidermis lies a series of cannabinoid receptors. If the results you’re looking for from CBD are external, going with a topical product may be more beneficial than a softgel. This way you don’t have to wait for your body to digest.
A good example here is if you have been training hard and would like to help a certain part of your body recover, like your knees or elbows.
Depending on what you’re using them for, there are so many effective ways to use CBD products! If you want a long-lasting product, CBD Softgels are probably your best bet. If you’re looking for a quick effect, one of our CBD Oil Tinctures might be the best!
