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 or Cannabidiol 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 Cannabidiol Products

There are various ways to consume Cannabidiol, all of them with their own benefits and drawbacks. However, the following two methods particularly stand out for a couple of big reasons:

1. Gum

There’s more to this method than just combining Cannabidiol 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 Cannabidiol in your system. This method also means that the Cannabidiol 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.

2. Edibles

CBD edibles—including our CBD mints—combine Cannabidiol oil with food products for a fast (and usually quite tasty) way to enjoy your daily dose. This is a popular option for obvious reasons. Instead of fiddling with a dropper or swallowing a pill, Cannabidiol 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, which help release the Cannabidiol 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 these products 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 are easy to take inconspicuously and on the go, like CBD edibles and 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 Cannabidiol today.
