What’s The Best Way To Take Cbd?
There are a number of ways to consume CBD, including CBD oils, CBD capsules and CBD topicals, as well as CBD vaporisers.
You need to know which of these methods of taking CBD suits you, and you need to work out how much you need to take in order to get the desired effect.
For long-term pain relief many people are reported to use CBD oil in combination with vaping. For severe and rapid relief or just want to sleep better, vaping id popular as the effect is felt almost immediately. However, for people looking for CBD for anxiety or stress, popular options include edibles or oils depending on how quickly you want to feel your effects and how long you need them to last.
Different forms of CBD are absorbed differently by the body, for example, if you swallow or take hemp oil or concentrate, it is metabolized by the liver and passed through the digestive system, eventually entering the bloodstream. With vaping, CBD enters directly into the bloodstream. CBD edibles are foods infused with CBD, which gives you an easy and delicious way to absorb CBD. In 10 minutes or less, you absorb between 34% - 56% of the CBD.
Below are some rough estimates with which you can base your decision:
How much CBD is actually absorbed when you take it?
- Digestion <=15%
- Topical <=30%
- Sublingual (under the tongue) <=35%
- Lungs (vaping) <=40%
- Intranasal (nasal spray) <=45%
- Oromucosal spray (mouth spray) >=90%
How much CBD should I take?
We recommended that you not take more than 200mg CBD a day unless prescribed by a doctor. If you're just starting out with CBD, try taking 20mg twice per day. After a week, you can double that amount to 40mg twice per day and continue increasing until the desired outcomes are reached.
