You can consume CBD in a variety of different ways.
Tinctures can be swallowed, it can be added to food, rubbed into your skin, inhaled, or swished around in the mouth.
If you’re wondering if you should use CBD oil or not, and how you should use it, the most recognized and most common method of taking CBD is ingesting it orally via the mouth. This is called sublingual, which simply means holding it under the tongue. The best absorption of the oil itself happens when you hold it under your tongue for a minute or two before swallowing. It’s quick, fairly easy to dose, and for many the most convenient.
This method allows the mucous membranes of the mouth to absorb CBD, bypassing the digestive system and metabolism in the liver entirely. Since no enzymes break the CBD molecules down and it does not travel through the stomach, CBD is able to reach the bloodstream faster.
Researchers are investigating new therapeutic uses for CBD and something new comes out almost every day. Scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system almost by accident, (Mechoulam et al, 1990), and its two primary receptors: Cannabinoid 1, or CB1, and cannabinoid 2, or CB2. CB1 receptors are abundant in the brain. When activated, they play a crucial role in motor control, memory processing, and pain perception. CBD itself is proving one of the most medically important compounds of all time.
