Which CBD Consumption Methods Are Most Effective?

CBD or cannabidiol is a compound found in the hemp plant. CBD has been getting more and more attention lately because of its various health benefits such as easing anxiety and offering pain relief without the psychoactive effects that THC causes. Added to this is the fact that the legalization of CBD in a number of states and countries around the world has led to scientists conducting more in-depth research into it. And the results, although not surprising, speak volumes. Its efficacy in treating a wide range of ailments is undeniable, and more people are turning to it. There are several different ways you can consume CBD, and although some are better than others, there is no right or wrong method. If you’d like to know which CBD consumption method is the most effective, here is what you need to know.

Smoking

Smoking is one of the most popular methods of consumption, and although it is a preferred method of millions of consumers, many avoid it because of the smell and the harmful effects of smoking. There are many ways to smoke CBD and these include joints, pipes, and one-hitters. Bongs are not excluded, and you can find a wide variety of these devices at dailyhighclub.com. Very much like vaping, smoking delivers CBD directly into the bloodstream, except that the volume of CBD delivered is much higher at almost 60%. Its effects also last between 3 and 4 hours long.

Edibles

Consuming CBD edibles has fast become a popular method of consumption for a number of reasons. Firstly, edibles taste great and can be found in a variety of products from gummies and candies to chocolates and even cakes. When consumed in edible form, CBD acts with the foods in the body to deliver a slow-release, with its effects often being felt up to 2 hours after consumption. The less food consumed before taking a CBD edible, the quicker the effects are felt. On the flip side, the effects are much longer-lasting than any other method and provide relief for up to 6 hours.

Tinctures

CBD tinctures are liquid solutions that are combined or infused with other ingredients such as alcohol or oil to produce a better taste. Tinctures are usually consumed with a dropper that is used to place the tincture under the tongue, and this results in the quick absorption of CBD into the bloodstream. This method allows you to feel its effects faster than consuming an edible although it does not last as long. In addition to this, like edibles, tinctures are convenient and discreet to use.

Vaping

Vaping has increased in popularity because consumers view this method of consumption as a healthier alternative to smoking. Apart from its less harmful effects on the throat and lungs, vaping delivers a cleaner experience with effects that are felt within 5 to 10 minutes. This is because vaping delivers approximately 40% of the CBD directly into your bloodstream and its effects can last up to 2 hours.

Topicals

CBD creams or topicals are an extremely effective method of consumption for localized pain and inflammation. These topicals can be applied directly to targeted pain areas by rubbing the cream into the skin. The great thing about topicals is that they are discreet and are absorbed into the skin. The effects do take longer to be felt than other methods but they are extremely effective alternatives for conditions such as arthritis and any type of swelling. Because it is absorbed through the skin, it is recommended that consumers use topicals with higher CBD concentrations and apply these generously to affected areas.

Consuming CBD is a personal choice that one should make after consultation with a medical professional. With this being said, in light of its numerous benefits in treating a wide range of conditions, there is no reason not to try it. There is, however, no particular method of consumption that will work for everyone. It is important that you first figure out why you’d want to consume, what benefits you’re looking for and how long you like these to last. There are also social aspects to consider, and if you’re a person that’s looking for discretion and convenience, you may want to consider edibles or tinctures.
