Is there a right way or wrong way to take CBD?
It seems like these days CBD is everywhere, in everything possible.
Is there a wrong way?
Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp and hemp-derived compounds like CBD (cannabidiol) from Schedule I classification.
What does that mean?
It means the flood gates opened to let anyone make and sell CBD products legally.
So lets chat a minute about the ways to take CBD
Vaping causes CBD to kick in the fastest out of all the methods of administration. Smoking hemp flower or vaping CBD will allow you to feel its effects faster than any other method. The downside- Its the shortest time of effectiveness and some chemicals in the in the vape juice are not good to inhale. With all of the controversy of the safety of vaping, Shear Naturals does not sell these items.
Using the oil, or tincture is the most popular way to take CBD. The dropper in the bottle is used to drop CBD oil under your tongue. This way the absorption process bypasses the digestive system and liver metabolization, allowing the compounds to reach your bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system more quickly.
There are so many edibles. From gummies, to chocolate, this is a very popular way to enjoy cbd. They are tasty, easy, pre-measured dose of on the go, quick consumption. SInce it passes thru the digestive system, it is slow acting, and you do not absorb all of the cbd, but it is longer lasting.
Topical products are used on specific points on the skin. From creams and roll-ons to skin care these products are geared towards interacting with cells and do not enter the bloodstream.
There are many more ways to intake cbd. Here is a quick list-
Mix it in your coffee- or better yet- CBD coffee and teas
Mix it your cookies, or any food items
Bath Bombs are a great way to soak away and relax
Another big point I want to make- There are a huge amount of CBD gimmicks out there- BUYER BE AWARE!
There are no known health benefits to CBD pillows, candles, toothpaste, toilet paper, and clothing. Burning candles is not the same as inhaling CBD. You can not breathe in the aroma of CBD and expect any benefits. You do not absorb enough CBD with toilet paper to do any good. Get it in or on your body.
