November 26, 2019 Bionativa

In stores, you can find more and more products with CBD content and therefore many people have a problem finding the perfect product. There are also questions as to whether all forms of taking CBD are equally effective. Therefore, before you decide to buy oil or cream, read this article. It will help you choose a CBD product that suits your lifestyle.

How to take CBD?

You’ve probably noticed that the amount of products with CBD content is constantly increasing. For example – in our shop, you will find CBD capsules, CBD oils, CBD creams and hemp foods. Also, we constantly complement our offer with new, high-quality products. You can get lost in the multitude of options to buy, especially if you have never taken CBD before.

This article will be your short guide on how to consume CBD. These are the most popular methods and widely considered to be the most effective. Knowing their properties, you will choose the best option for you.

1. CBD oil

CBD oils are the first method of taking cannabidiol that comes to mind when we think about CBD. Indeed – many people start their CBD containing products adventure from CBD oils.

CBD oils are known to provide cannabidiol most efficiently. However, this method is not perfect for everyone. Why? Notwithstanding the simplicity of the CBD oils intake, it is associated with learning the entire spectrum of cannabidiol flavour. You need to drain 2-3 drops of oil under your tongue and keep them in your mouth for a minimum of 30 seconds. For some people, it’s a big problem because CBD has its characteristic earthy taste and herbal smell.

2. CBD capsulesĀ 

CBD capsules solve the problem of the smell and taste of CBD oil, but it is worth emphasizing that CBD absorption is lower, and the effects of such cannabidiol intake may appear later. However, along with CBD oil, CBD capsules are considered to be one of the most effective methods of absorbing CBD.

To enjoy the valuable properties of CBD, simply swallow the capsule and drink with a glass of water. Once it is in our stomach, it undergoes digestive processes. CBD goes into the bloodstream and starts working.

An additional advantage of CBD capsules is that there is no risk of accidental overdose. While it is relatively easy to put too many drops of CBD oil on the tongue, this is not a problem with capsules.

3. CBD tea

Some people decide to consume CBD in the form of hemp foods. In many stores, you can find products such as protein powder or chewing gum. That is not a bad solution, but CBD is released into the bloodstream slowly, which may reduce its effectiveness. It’s also worth to remember that CBD edibles taste may simply not be to one’s liking – similar to oil, they often have an earthy taste. A good solution to this problem could be CBD tea.

Teas with CBD content taste similar to other herbal infusions, and the way they are taken has a number of additional benefits. There is nothing more relaxing than hot tea after a hard day at work.

4. CBD cream

There is yet another way to get the benefits of CBD – CBD creams, also known as lotions or ointments. They are applied directly to the skin. In addition to cannabidiol, they contain many other valuable ingredients that care for the skin, including vitamins and minerals. They don’t work as effectively as CBD oil or capsules, but they can be great for everyday skincare. In our store, you will find the high-quality Cibdol cream and Cibdol lip balm.

Also, remember that you can change the way you take CBD. You don’t have to take capsules all the time or drink hemp tea every day. Try new things and enjoy CBD just the way you want!
