Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a versatile compound with a variety of health applications. It can be used to address a wide range of health and wellness concerns.
And just like its diverse applications, there are also a wide range of ways to use CBD products.
We’ve already discussed the potential risks of vaping CBD oils (internal link once published), so you may be looking for alternatives to vaping CBD.
But what’s the best way to use CBD? Is there a clear winner?
The Best Way to Use CBD Products
As cliché as it might sound, the best way to use CBD is the method that is most convenient for your situation. It’s difficult to recommend a single “best” way for everyone.
With that said, we can tell you the most popular method – and our personal favorite.
The most popular method is sublingual application using CBD tinctures. Sublingual simply means “under the tongue”. To take CBD tinctures sublingually, simply use the included dropper to place the CBD oil under your tongue. Hold it there for about 60 seconds, then swallow.
The next most common method is using CBD oil softgels. This is the most convenient method overall, as it’s as simple as swallowing a small pill.
Softgels are good for on-the-go use, because they are small and discrete. They’re also good for consistency, as each dose is precisely measured out.
Next come CBD topicals, which are typically lotions or salves that are applied directly to the skin. These products are best for addressing joint and muscle pain in targeted areas.
All these different methods have unique pros and cons. If you’re not sure where to start, our CBD starter pack is a popular option. This combines both our CBD softgels and tincture, and offers a generous discount as well!
The only method that we recommend avoiding is vaporizing CBD, due to the potential health risks.
