HOW DO I TAKE CBD OIL?
There are many different ways you can use CBD oil. Traditional CBD products on the market are oil-based, which if high quality can be okay – but do waste a lot due to their low bioavailability. As a result, CBD One have developed a line of water soluble CBD products which are more effective than oil-based products and completely legal in the UK.
Our blood is 90% water, so it makes sense that we struggle to absorb oil-based products. The only way our bodies can access the CBD is through metabolization in the liver. During the process of making the CBD accessible, over 90% of the of the cannabinoids are lost. This is why we are proud to share our water-soluble range under the Absorb title.
TRADITIONAL CBD OIL DROPS ARE TAKEN UNDER THE TONGUE.
Traditional CBD oil drops are taken under the tongue.
Vaping is another way to take CBD. Although vape juices may be sold as CBD vape oil, they don’t contain the same oil as oral drops. Instead, the CBD extract is mixed with an emulsifier to make it suitable for vaping.
(It’s important to remember that if you have a vape pen, you can’t just add your sublingual CBD oil to the canister. Inhaling this oil is not good for your health and can be dangerous.)
At CBD One, we aren’t 100% sure on the benefits, long-term, of vaping cannabinoids. While vaping can be a great way to come away from dangerous habits such as smoking – there are question marks over cannabinoids turning toxic when vaping.
Other options for consuming CBD include tablets and capsules. This is primarily chosen by people who don’t like the taste of CBD, however it’s important to note that taking a tablet will greatly reduce the absorption and efficacy. If taste is an issue, our Absorb range has been specially developed to be added to a drink and maximises the potential of what you’re taking.
CBD is available in pure crystal isolate form which people add to vapes or take in other ways. This is essentially pure CBD. Although CBD isolate might sound like the most effective and high dosage version available, the opposite has been found to be true. By isolating the CBD compound, the full spectrum of cannabinoids and compounds in the plant are lost making it less effective.
Finally, there are novelty items. Products such as gummy bears and sweets infused with CBD are available but these are not an effective solution when looking to truly improve health.
There are others such as CBD infused alcoholic drinks and even bath bombs. By putting CBD in a bath bomb, you are essentially sitting in a heavily diluted solution containing a small amount of CBD. In the end, you will just be flushing the majority of the CBD down the drain instead of enjoying any of the positive benefits.
