Ways to Consume CBD

How to Take Your CBD

With Cannabidiol use on the rise, the various ways to administer CBD are also growing. People are consuming CBD in a variety of ways including through CBD tinctures, CBD vape juice, and CBD gummies. The choice of which way to consume your CBD is up to you, but always remember to consult a health care professional to see if Cannabidiol use is right for you. Products currently are made in two forms: Whole plant/Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate. Whole plant or Full Spectrum products are made by combining various cannabinoids to achieve the “entourage effect”. Where as isolate based products contain only CBD. Always remember to make sure that all CBD products are 3rd tested to ensure consistency and quality.

CBD Tinctures

People consume CBD or Cannabidiol through the use of sublingual and topical tinctures. This is one of the easiest ways to consume CBD for desired effects. People that want to stay away from the harmful effects of smoking, are more inclined to use this option as their first choice. In this absorption method, a consumer can take their desired amount of CBD and simply drop it under the tongue and apply it directly on their skin. This is a preferred method for pets as well, as it is easy to administer either topically or added directly to the food. Tinctures come in many forms and strengths , so make sure you speak to health care professional about different options for your individual needs. Tinctures also come in two options:

  1. Whole plant or Full Spectrum – Full Spectrum or whole plant tinctures are a popular choice for individuals seeking a multiple cannabinoid profile. This complete cannabinoid profile contains primarily Cannabidiol but also contains detectable amounts of other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, CBC, THC. While research is still waiting to be studied for these other cannabinoids, we do know that the combination of these cannabinoids results in what is called “the entourage “ effect. Meaning that there is a desired effect when blending these cannabinoids together. There is also a 0% THC option that is now available for Whole plant and full spectrum tinctures for those looking to have a multiple cannabinoid profile with absolutely 0 THC. Be sure to have your products 3rd party tested to ensure consistency and quality. Many companies claim to have products with 0 THC and actually have detectable amounts in them. Be sure you buy from a reputable company with 3rd party testing.
  2. Isolate based – Isolate based tinctures are designed to “isolate” the CBD entirely for the desired effects. In this formulation, the whole plant oil is further refined to remove CBD from the other cannabinoids. This is the desired option for those looking for CBD only products. Most isolate based products are between 98-99% CBD, which means that the other 2%-1% can be a discrepancy in lab testing equipment or even that the material is holding some water. Be sure to have your products 3rd party tested to ensure consistency and quality. Many companies claim to have great isolate with poor testing results. Also, be sure that your products material is sourced directly from local farmers and not purchased from other countries on the internet. These countries often do not have the same quality standards as the US and therefore, aren’t safe. Be sure to have your material 3rd party tested.

CBD Vape Juice

CBD vape juice is becoming a very popular delivery method for Cannabidiol. While studies are still waiting to be preformed, many consumer testimonials point out that consuming Cannabidiol through vaping is a healthy alternative to smoking. Like normal Vape Juice, CBD vape juice is a blend of Vegetable glycerin (VG) and Propylene glycol (PG). There is also flavoring mixed in with the solution for individual desired flavors. As of 2016, vape juice is now regulated by the FDA, and products must be licensed. This is great for users, and ensures quality and consistency. CBD vape juice can now be made in the same flavors as normal vape juice and serves as a replacement to nicotine. There are also two types of Cannbidiol vape juice: Isolate based and Whole plant based. The isolate based vape juice isolates “CBD” entirely and is virtually odorless and tasteless. This is a great solution for those wishing to receive the benefits of Cannabidiol without an “earthy” taste. Like the whole plant tinctures, Cannabidiol (CBD) vape juice is comprised of CBD but also CBN, CBG, CBC, and THC. There is also a “O THC” option, so be sure to make sure that products are 3rd party tested to ensure consistency and quality.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Gummies

Definitely not gummies for children, CBD gummies provide an alternative to adults who do not desire to use Cannabidiol sublingual tinctures or CBD vape juice. This is also becoming an increasingly popular administrative method for pets, as it is easy to chew. Be sure to check with your health care professional about the proper doses for gummies, as there are many options to choose from. They also come in many forms, colors, sizes, etc. ; so pay careful attention to labels and packaging to ensure you consume CBD in the proper quantity. Packaging may also be deceptive, so make sure the CBD company you choose has descriptive labels and is 3rd party tested ensure quality and consistency.

Whichever method of consuming CBD depends on the individual consumer and their needs. With growing research pointing at the benefits to Cannabidiol use, the ways to consume CBD are also growing. The three most common routes to administer Cannabidiol currently are: Sublingual tinctures, CBD vape juice, and CBD gummies. It is important to understand that these products can be made of “whole plant” or “isolate” based Cannabidiol, depending on consumer needs. Please remember with any Cannabidiol (CBD) product to always consult a health care professional on benefits and the potential risks. Also, be sure that all products are 3rd party tested to ensure quality and consistency.
