CBD has become a common household item for many. With the unimaginable array of choices and forms in which CBD can be packaged and made available in, it comes as a chore for consumers to find the CBD product that is right for them. Most of the time, consumers are left dazed by the sheer variety of products.
CBD comes in many forms right from vapes to gummy bear, however, if you are trying to absorb more of the CBD goodness into you then look no further than sublingual CBD. Read on…
Absorbing The CBD Goodness
CBD, as many of you must be aware of is obtained from the now legal hemp plant. It can be extracted from cannabis but that is still a big no in the US. There are many other countries and states that have made marijuana legal; unfortunately, the USA is still finding its way. CBD health benefits are mostly holistic and focus on enhancing general well-being, with many of the benefits revolving around pain relief and controlling inflammation. Research has been able to extend the otherwise vast list of benefits and it is only a matter of time that we are able to fully uncover and understand how CBD works its magic, but we do have an idea.
How Sublingual CBD Works
This method is a way to increase the bioavailability of CBD, which is merely the amount of CBD you take in versus the amount that actually ends up in your bloodstream. The value for sublingual is 20% compared to the 5-8% of edibles. The method works by adding a few drops of the pure CBD oil under the tongue and holding it there; it must be held this way for around 1 minute, the longer the better. The capillaries and blood vessels under the tongue extract and absorb the content of the CBD oil, because of which the effects are more pronounced and act faster than traditionally ingesting the CBD oil right away. Once the 1 minute elapses, you can ingest the oil as you normally do.
The time it takes for it to act is roughly 10-15 minutes. If you are someone who does not enjoy the smoke of vaping and would want to go for a ‘cleaner’ approach, then sublingually taking in CBD is recommended.
Do mix and match the different ways of taking CBD. A method preferred by one may not be perfect for another. Irrespective, there is a good chance that taking CBD sublingually won’t let you down.
