How to Take CBD
Now that you know the benefits of CBD, let’s talk about how to take CBD. Here are the three most common types of CBD products to try.
1. CBD Oil & Tinctures
One of the most popular ways to use CBD is to take it orally. You can choose from oils, tinctures, sprays, and lozenges containing concentrated amounts of CBD.
These products are designed for sublingual use. Place a few drops below your tongue and let your body absorb it slowly, rather than swallowing it directly. Some products may contain a mild flavor additive (peppermint oil, for example), or they may be almost flavorless.
Taking CBD orally is ideal for anyone looking for overall health benefits. Absorbing it sublingually allows your body to use it to reduce pain and inflammation or ease stress and anxiety.
2. CBD Topicals
Do you have an inflammatory skin condition? Sore joints from arthritis pain? Achy muscles after a long workout?
If any of these apply to you, you might consider topical CBD products. These include lotions, salves, balms, and bath bombs. Some products contain pure CBD oil, while others might be mixed with other healthful components (such as arnica or lavender).
Apply the topical product directly where you need it for fast, effective relief.
3. CBD Edibles
Looking for a discreet (or tasty) way to take CBD? Why not try one of the many edible CBD products on the market?
- CBD gummies
- CBD candy
- CBD mints
- CBD chocolate
- CBD honey
How do you know a good CBD product when you see one? The best products are made from US-grown hemp and contain less the 0.3% THC. You should also look for companies that provide proof of third-party testing so you know you’re getting a pure, high-quality product.
