How to Take CBD Oil

When taking in CBD oil, there are a number of points you must take into consideration First, you need to choose the right type of oil, and the correct dosage. After that, you will have to pick your preferred method of taking in CBD oil. 

But, there’s a catch with the different methods of taking CBD oil. It's not only a preference but, some methods are better suited for particular benefits as you are about to find out. Here are six different ways that you can take CBD oils and the advantages of each method.

Vape Liquid

Vaporizing is becoming a common thing in the 21st century. It is a preferred method for people who want to take in CBD. Compared to tinctures and capsules, vapes offer more variety. Another benefit is that you can expect fewer challenges and downsides. Unlike people who take CBD orally, those who vape don't have to worry about the delayed effect as it’s the quickest way to absorb into the bloodstream.

What’s more vaporizing, is a trend and is more stylish and fashionable. It is one of the new ways to enjoy CBD oils and it is largely enjoyed by the younger generation.

With CBD vaping liquid, you can adjust your dosage depending on how you feel. It is accurate, and it gives you the right kick. Our guide on CBD is a perfect read if you are unsure on dosage levels.

How to use vapes

First, you need to get the right CBD Vape Kit. At Flawless CBD, we have numerous types of CBD Vape Kits and Pens that you can choose from. Then you have to buy your preferred CBD Vape which we also have in stock. Once you have all the tools in place, all you have to do is add the CBD vape to the vaporizer and enjoy.  

Tinctures

This is the most preferred method of taking CBD. It is the most common because it is pure and there is no processing of the oil by the manufacturers. The product is more effective and in some instances, it might have some flavour which makes it easier for more people to enjoy CBD. 

Tinctures vary in dosage which can range from 100mg to 3000mg. If you prefer this method, you need to do your homework to identify the right dosage for you. While tinctures are easy to use, they are not without challenges. The most common is dealing with the spills and using the product the right way.

How to use Tinctures

When using tinctures, you are required to place a few drops on or under the tongue and along the cheek lines. Contrary to popular opinion, you should not swallow but let the CBD linger around for some time and get absorbed. You should let the CBD extract stay in your mouth for a while before swallowing.

The method is quite easy and highly effective if the right steps are used in administering the CBD extract and also if you take time to research your dosage correctly.

Concentrates

These are the strongest form of CBD oil extract that you can come across. They are stronger than any other product on the market. That said, you should pay extra attention when choosing the dosage because concentrates can contain up to 10 times the strength of CBD compared to other products.

Concentrates are easy to consume and don’t create a mess like tinctures requiring only a few seconds to administer.

The downside to concentrates is that most of them are not flavoured and you have to deal with the natural flavour of CBD, which many people find undesirable. The packaging might also be a little intimidating to first-time users. But for those that prefer the high concentration, this is the best option.

How to use Concentrates

Concentrates are used in the same way as tinctures. The only difference is after placing the CBD concentrate under the tongue and along the cheeks, it is ingested slowly.

Capsules and Edibles

If you intend to use CBD oil as a daily supplement, taking it in the form of capsules and edibles is the best approach. Capsules are easier to take than tinctures and concentrate. Their dosage ranges between 5 and 25mg. Each capsule comes with a set amount making it difficult to customise your daily intake.

However, you can go through our expansive collection of CBD capsules and tabs and find one with a dosage that is close to your preference.

How to use capsules

CBD capsules and tablets are easy to take. You take them with water just as you would take any other pill. Many people find that capsules are the easiest to take and to incorporate in their daily regimen.

Sprays

Even though it is difficult to measure the exact dosage of sprays, it is expected to be anywhere between 1mg and 3mg.

Even though they can be somewhat inconsistent, sprays are a preferred method for people who want to have their CBD on the go. The CBD comes in small spray bottles that are easy to carry and you can bring them anywhere.

Sprays are also an ideal option for people who are just starting and are not sure of how the experience is going to be. The low concentration of CBD allows you to get an idea of the benefits you stand to enjoy and you can adjust upwards from there.

How to use sprays

The other benefits of sprays are that they are easy to use. There's no mixing whatsoever. You simply need to spray the recommended dosage onto the mouth. The normal dosage is 2 to 3 sprays but you should check on the label for the correct dosage. The label might also contain vital information on what to do when you take more or less than the recommended dosage.

Creams, Balms and Body Salves

This method is typically for skin applications. We stock a wide range of salves, creams, and balms s that allow your skin to enjoy the benefits of CBD oil. When used topically, CBD offers different benefits, which include anti-ageing, treatment of inflammation, acne, and psoriasis among others. It is also commonly used for post gym/workout recovery and pain relief.

How to use Topicals

Creams and balms infused with CBD oil are used just like any other body cream or a skin care product. However, you should only use them when you have a problem that you need to treat. All you need to do is apply generously to the affected area as indicated on the label.

Conclusion

Different people have different preferences. For some people like those looking to treat skin conditions, choosing a method to take CBD will not be hard. For others, you might want to try a few ways and see what works best for you.

However, the most important thing is to get as much information as possible about CBD as possible and find quality products from trusted brands that you can enjoy.
