CBD products are becoming more and more common, promising to fix a wide range of ailments. There are so many different ways that you can consume CBD, and each method comes with its own pros and cons. But which way is best?
Use a product that meets your needs
For those who suffer from physical pain, topical CBD creams and ointments may provide the best results. The topical solution is applied directly to the location of the pain, where the CBD is then absorbed into the skin. Many people report stronger feelings of targeted pain relief when they take CBD this way, compared to taking CBD orally. This may be because the CBD is entering the body at the site of the pain and can then begin to attach to local endocannabinoid pain receptors, compared to taking CBD other ways, where it gets dispersed around the whole body.
For those who need relief fast (such as those who might be seeking relief from the sudden onset of a panic or anxiety attack), vaping may be a better method. When you vape CBD the compound enters your bloodstream through your lungs, a much faster process compared to other methods. Research has also shown that when CBD is inhaled, a far greater concentration of CBD actually gets into your bloodstream, increasing the effects felt. The bioavailability (the amount that gets absorbed into the bloodstream) of CBD vapes is around 35 – 56%, while the bioavailability of CBD taken orally is only 13 – 35%. So for people who are looking to see pronounced results as soon as possible, vaping might be an ideal choice.
Alternatively, the convenience of CBD oil or CBD gummies might make them more appealing methods of consuming CBD. CBD oil can be mixed into drinks or food, or dropped directly onto the tongue. CBD gummies are just like any other form of gummy candy, making them easy to eat. Although these ways of taking CBD may take longer to kick in (often around half an hour), they are great for generalized stress, helping to calm down, or more general physical pain.
The best way to take CBD is the method that you are most comfortable with
CBD products are designed to help improve your quality of life, and therefore the best CBD product for you is going to be the one that gives you the best results, but also the one you are most comfortable with. People may have their own experiences with different CBD products and different CBD concentrations – there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
Start with a small dosage
Everyone responds differently to CBD, based on factors such as weight, tolerance, and body chemistry. People also use CBD products to treat different conditions, which may require different dosages in order to be effective. Therefore in order to see the best results, you may need to experiment with dosages, to find what works for you. If you are new to CBD products, it’s always a good idea to begin by using a small dosage, and then increase this if you need to. Reputable products will come with recommended dosages on the packaging, which you should use as a guide.
For chronic conditions, take CBD regularly
If you are suffering from an ongoing health condition and you are seeking relief with CBD, you should aim to take it consistently. CBD can provide short-term support, but if you continue to take it on a regular basis, you may also start to see long-term changes in some chronic pain conditions and emotional disorders. How often you should take CBD will depend on your specific needs, but most people take it on a daily basis.
Only use high-quality products from trusted suppliers
Because the CBD market is constantly growing, there are so many different providers that claim to offer high-quality CBD products. It’s important to do your research, and ensure that you are buying from a trusted company. Your CBD should be free of any harsh chemicals or pesticides, and it should be tested to ensure its concentration levels are accurate.
