Getting started on a healthier lifestyle with CBD has never been easier. Here are the different ways to use CBD so you can get started on your journey to wellness.
Have you been thinking about adding CBD to your daily routine or making it a part of a more well life? CBD is pretty much everywhere now, and a lot of people are wondering what it is and how they can start using it for themselves in hopes of alleviating some aches and pains, being healthier, and, in some cases, getting their lives back.
The good thing about CBD is that there are so many different ways to use CBD that getting started is super easy and something you can do today. Here are the four different ways you can use CBD for you to consider!
Different Ways To Use CBD
One of the most effective ways to use CBD is sublingually, or under the tongue. Simply hold one dosage of CBD oil or tincture under your tongue for between 30 and 60 seconds, then swallow. Taking CBD this way makes for rapid absorption and higher potency levels. The cannabis compound goes directly to the bloodstream and begins interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system within minutes. While it might be a unique or new method to many, it’s actually one of the easier methods and friendly for beginners who are looking to try CBD for the first time.
Another easy way to take or use CBD is by ingesting it. This can be as simple as swallowing CBD oil or tincture rather than holding it under your tongue, or taking CBD gelcaps. You can add it to your favorite breakfast drinks like shakes, coffee, or tea, or add it to some of your favorite foods like salad, sandwiches, and even pizza. While ingestion is just as easy as holding CBD under the tongue, the results may not be the same. Unlike sublingual applications, ingesting CBD means that the compound has to go through the digestive tract and face degradation by way of liver metabolization and strong acids in the stomach that are meant to break down food.
If you have sore muscles, joint pain, or a stiff back or neck, then you’re going to love topical CBD. Topical CBD is available in creams, balms, lotions, and roll-ons and can be applied directly to the source for target treatment. The CBD penetrates the skin and binds with cannabinoid receptors found on the skin. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system that’s found in the human body and associated with regulating mood, appetite, hormones, pain, and more. CBD works with this system to provide pain relief to localized areas.
CBD can be inhaled through combustion methods. CBD is available in buds or flowers and can be smoked or vaped, similar to marijuana. Inhaling CBD is the primary option for a lot of CBD users and they have their reasons. According to some, inhaling smoke or vape into the lungs makes CBD more biodiverse, or absorbed in abundance from the lungs into the bloodstream. This can lead to a deeper and more therapeutic experience with some users saying the effects last longer this way. Research on this method isn’t extensive or advanced, and there are warnings of possible lung irritation or damage or future respiratory issues.
