Main Consumption Methods

1. Topicals: Balms & Creams

Topical products can be applied directly to the skin. CBD topicals have been shown to provide anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. They may aid in reducing inflammation, which can particularly help people who suffer from conditions such as arthritic joint pain or muscle aches just to name a few.

Pros

  • Works fast
  • Addresses skin issues
  • Localized pain relief

2. Sprays

Sprays are one of the most discrete and convenient ways to consume CBD. Each pump of the spray is a measured dose, and these types of sprays also come in a variety of CBD ratios.

Pros

  • Easy to control dosage for a very low dose.
  • Very discreet
  • Portable
  • Enjoyable taste

3. Sublingual Oil

Sublingual oils are a versatile product. While oils are primarily made for sublingual consumption, they can be used in a multitude ways, including mixed into foods or applied topically. When consumed sublingually, the body absorbs the oil into the bloodstream via the mucous membrane under the tongue. This means faster acting effects compared to other oral ingestion methods. Each person feels the effects differently, ranging from 15 to 30 minutes for most consumers, and up to one hour after consumption for others.

Pros

  • Works fast
  • Easy to control dosage for a very low dose.
  • Very discreet
  • Portable

4. Gel Caps

Capsules or softgels can be a convenient way to take CBD. There’s no need to taste the hemp, and you avoid the sugar found in edibles like CBD gummies. Taking a capsule can be very discreet as well, since most of these capsules simply look like any other over-the-counter supplement or vitamin.

Pros

  • Easy to control and predict precise dosage for a very low or high dose (premeasured)
  • Discreet, no taste or smell
  • Long lasting relief (up to 6-10 hours)

5. Edibles

Edibles are made roughly through the same process as the gel capsules are. While it takes a while for CBD edibles to take effect (between 30 minutes to two hours), the result is relief that lasts longer than inhalation. The culinary science has evolved enough that most products are pretty delicious, you can hardly tell they contain cannabis. CBD edibles are an excellent way to avoid inhaling potentially toxic compounds which saves the lungs from irritation.

Pros

  • Long lasting relief
  • Dosage can be very precise
  • Discreet
  • Enjoyable taste

6. Vaporizer

You can vaporize CBD oil. Vaporizing allows for the effects of the medication to be felt quickly, This form of administration is particularly helpful when you need immediate relief from anxiety or pain.

Pros

  • Delivers instant relief
  • Portable
