Despite all the debate against marijuana, it is now a proven fact that the marijuana plant has a lot of health benefits. The plant contains a lot of extracts that can be used to treat various medical conditions. One of the most useful and popular extracts is cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD. It is normally extracted from the plantâ€™s flower, leaves or stalk. CBD oil lacks THC, the active ingredient that makes people high when they smoke marijuana and therefore consuming CBD oil will not make you “high”.
CBD oil has become very popular since it is effective in combating various diseases. It can be used to minimize the effects of depression and anxiety, can help slow down Alzheimerâ€™s disease, is very effective for controlling epileptic seizures and can even relieve muscle pain when applied to the skin. If you go shopping for some CBD oil, you will notice that it comes in many forms. You will find cbd edibles, such as capsules, cbd concentrate and even cbd topicals. This, therefore, means that there are many ways of taking CBD Oil. This article expounds on each method and will help you decide how you will take yours.
The most common way to take cbd oil is called the sublingual method. This involves placing a set dosage of cbd oil under the tongue so that it can be absorbed by the body. Under this method, you will mostly use cbd concentrate (which comes in a type of syringe) or cbd tinctures which come in a glass bottle. Place the recommended dosage under the tongue for 60-90 seconds before you ingest it. With this method, you will feel the effect of the cbd oil quickly, although you may not like the taste.
The second method is by direct ingestion. Under this method, you will ingest the cbd capsules just like you would do for other drugs and supplements. You can use beverages such as water, juice or coffee to help you swallow. Other creative ways of ingesting cbd oil involve chewing cbd gum or blending it into your favorite drinks. Since this method relies on the digestive system and wait for metabolism to take place in the liver, it might be a while before you feel the effect.
Another very popular way of taking cbd oil is by inhalation. This involves the use of a CBD vaporizer or vape kit and then “vaping” the oil. When you vape, the CBD oil will quickly get into your bloodstream through the lungs. It, therefore, has fast results, though some people don’t like vaping as they associate it with smoking.
Finally, you can also take cbd oil by applying it directly to the skin. For this option, you will make use of cbd topicals, which come in different types and brands. This method is not meant to get to the blood stream, but rather it is used to bring relief to aching muscles and joints. It can also help to moisturize the skin, and restoring its youthfulness. You can even use cbd oil shampoos to wash your hair which will clean and strengthen it.
