With the legalization of CBD oils, there is a growing number of people that are using CBD in its various forms to treat different kinds of conditions. However, the question that perplexes us all is:
what is the most effective way to consume CBD supplements?
The reason this is asked is because there are already many means to consume this drug, e.g., vaping, sublingually, natural nasal spray, and oral consumption, while at the same time not much is known about the drug. This article attempts to deal with the question.
How will we deduce the most effective way?
To deduce the effectiveness of intake of CBD supplements, we will have to look into three domains:
- What are the bodily conditions of the consumer?
- How long does it take to have effect?
- How long will the effect last?
To clarify, some methods may not be suitable for some people, like people with injured nasal cavities using a natural nasal spray, or someone with lung problems taking in CBD through vape. Once the individual has figured the state of their body, then they can narrow down the means which will benefit them. He or she may choose amongst them after that, depending on how desperate they are for it to have effect, and how long they need the CBD oil’s effect to last. The onset and time period of various CBD supplements
The effect when consuming the drug orally takes longer to occur. The reason behind this is that the drug once consumed, has to go through the entire digestive system, that includes the esophagus, the stomach, and then the intestines, where it is most likely to be absorbed. This process takes a few hours. However, once it is done its effect may last for up to 14 hours.
Cream with CBD is applied directly to the skin. From there, the CBD supplement discharges into the lower layers of the skin, where it takes effect. The effect starts in 20 minutes and lasts for up to 6 hours.
A few drops of tincture are applied sublingually (i.e., under the tongue), from where it directly goes into the bloodstream. This method is fast, takes 20 minutes to come into effect and lasts for up to 8 hours.
This this method is the newest, not much is known about it. It is also currently subject to scientific inquiry. However, since it goes directly into the nasal cavity, near the brain, it takes effect fast.
What way is most effective, depends entirely on your perspective. If you want a long-lasting effect, you may want to use an edible, and tincture for vice versa. However, it is worth nothing that tincture may also have a long-lasting effect. The reason for this is when you add the droplets under your tongue, you swallow some of it anyway. As a result, its effect is not only quick to occur, but may come into effect long term too.
