The most frequent question that we receive is “what’s the best way to take CBD?”
Through research, doing our own and reading all of the studies available, we did test the method of inhaling and we know that it is beneficial to inhale. Though we do understand that, for many, this delivery method is a bit taboo.
For research, I wanted to ensure to try as well so that we could have all the best insight to know what the best ways to utilize the CBD flower.
For many, inhaling the CBD flower reminds people of CBD’s psychotropic sisters with high THC strains. The fact is, you can smoke hemp flowers, low-THC/high-CBD strains, or you can vape CBD concentrates with little to no THC that goes into the body.
As it turns out, inhalation is the most effective method of delivery and preferred by many because the body absorbs quickly through the lungs. The effects are near immediate, making it a good option for anyone needing rapid relief.
When you inhale CBD, whether flowers or vape concentrates, the alveoli absorb the compounds immediately through the lungs which offer a large surface. CBD passes through the alveoli with each breath.
From there it enters the bloodstream and circulates through the body. Compared to other methods, inhaling absorbs higher doses of CBD at once coupled with a more rapid pace.
So, in short, this is one instance where smoking actually offers health benefits. Come see The Green Team here at the Get Me Some Green Apothecary. We also do CBD 101 classes either online or in our store every month. Come learn with us!
