The Best Way To Take CBD
Curious about the best way to take CBD? Whether you’re a CBD newbie or have been relying on one method for a while and are looking to mix it up, knowing about all of the different ways to take CBD will help you make the best decision for your health and your lifestyle. And to take the guesswork out of figuring it all out, we’ve outlined a couple of the best ways below—as well as how to decide on your optimal consumption method. Let’s get to it.
Two Easy, Discreet Ways to Consume CBD
There are various ways to consume CBD, all of them with their own benefits and drawbacks. However, the following two methods particularly stand out for a couple big reasons:
- CBD Gum
There’s more to this method than just combining CBD consumption with a dose of fresh breath. When you chew your CBD instead of swallowing it, you get the benefit of buccal absorption, which bypasses your metabolism so that you get more of the CBD in your system. This method also means that the CBD goes to work faster. And because it’s a low dosage in each piece of CBD gum, you don’t have to worry about overdoing it, even if you chew a few pieces throughout the day.
- CBD Edibles
CBD edibles—including our CBD mints—combine CBD oil with food products for a fast (and usually quite tasty) way to enjoy CBD. This is a popular option, and for obvious reasons. Instead of fiddling with a dropper or swallowing a pill, CBD edibles can be eaten just like you’d eat anything else. Do keep in mind however that this method does slow down the rate of absorption, and that the CBD will be released over time instead of all at once, which might not be great if you’re looking for fast relief. (Fortunately though, our CBD mints circumvent this process, since they dissolve in your mouth instead of being swallowed, so you get the same elevated bioabsorption rate as you get with our CBD gum.)
What’s The Best Method for Taking CBD?
The best method for taking CBD depends largely on your lifestyle and your personal preferences. There’s no one way that’s inherently better than others as a whole, but there may be one way that’s inherently better for you.
We recommend trying a few different methods to see what you like best, or alternately, choosing the method that best aligns with your day to day life. For example, if you’re out and about all day, you might prefer CBD products that can be taking inconspicuously and on the go, like CBD edibles and our gum. The best method will be the one that works into your day, and that provides you with the most optimal benefits, so make the decision that’s right for you and start enjoying CBD today.
