What’s Really the Most Effective Way to Use CBD?
It’s #MedicalMonday and we’re sharing a Refinery29 post about how to use CBD. While it’s tough to say which is the best and most effective way to experience the effects of this non-psychoactive drug, this article provides readers with different ways to consume, soak-in or routinely take CBD and how it actually works.
In this article, Refinery29 interviewed Rick Weissman, president of High Fall Hemp, a New York-based CBD company. “There are clinical studies which suggest that inhalation and sublingual transmission are the most effective”, he says. Vapes and sublingual (aka under the tongue) tinctures tend to be the most effective methods because they put CBD right into your bloodstream. A CBD gummy or even a supplement, on the other hand, would have to be absorbed through the digestive tract, which may take longer or result in a less potent effect. And a CBD cream or lotion would be absorbed topically through your skin. He continues to discuss effective ways to take CBD and provides information for first-timers and for those who are new to the cannabidiol compound.
If you’re not sure if a CBD product is right for you, it’s always a good idea to ask your doctor or healthcare provider.
