Tips to Consume CBD: The Complete Guide

22/07/2022

There are many reasons why you might want to start consuming cannabidiol (CBD). Perhaps you want to experience the benefits of CBD oil, or perhaps you want to avoid the risks associated with THC. Either way, there are plenty of ways to get your dose of CBD.

In this article, we’ll discuss different ways to consume CBD – from oils and capsules to tea and even chocolate. Keep reading to find out more about these different types of consumption and which would be best for your personal needs.

Why Consume CBD?

CBD is derived from the cannabis plant and is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in the plant. Unlike its more famous cousin, THC, which is primarily responsible for the “high” commonly associated with cannabis, CBD has no psychoactive effects. This means that consuming CBD won’t get you high and will instead be helpful in treating many health conditions.

CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory properties that can help to relieve pain. It can also be useful in the treatment of anxiety, stress, and sleep disorders. Additionally, CBD has been found to have some anti-cancer properties, which makes it a promising new treatment for many different types of cancer. CBD can also be used to help treat epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and more.

How to Consume CBD?

In order to understand how to consume CBD, you first need to understand the different ways in which it can be consumed. The most obvious way is through smoking or vaporizing it, but there are also other, less obvious, ways to consume CBD such as through edibles, tinctures, and topicals.

We’ll first take a look at smoking/vaporizing and then move on to the others.

Smoking or vaporizingSmoking or vaporizing CBD-rich cannabis can be an effective and efficient method of administering CBD. This is why many people with busy lifestyles prefer this method of administration. Because smoking or vaporizing CBD-rich cannabis doesn’t produce an intense high, many people can use this method of administration without feeling any psychoactive effects.

EdiblesEating CBD-infused edibles can be a great choice for people who aren’t interested in smoking or who simply prefer a different method of administration. CBD edibles are made with a variety of different ingredients, including gummies, baked goods, and more.

Tinctures – A tincture is a liquid extract that can be consumed directly or used to replace a liquid or topical application. Tinctures are a great choice for people who want to be able to easily control the serving size of their CBD.

Topicals – CBD topicals are often made with CBD-infused oils that are applied directly to the skin. Topicals are a great choice for people who want to apply CBD to an isolated part of their body, like their knee or foot, or who simply prefer a topical application.

Determining your Ideal Serving of CBD

Before deciding how you want to consume CBD and what type of CBD product you’d like to use, you first need to figure out your ideal serving size. This will depend on your personal needs and goals. For example, if you’re using CBD for pain relief, you’ll likely want to consume more than if you’re using it for anxiety relief.

When trying to determine your ideal serving size, keep in mind that CBD potency will vary from plant to plant. This means that the amount of CBD you’ll find in each product and serving size will vary from one product to another. This can make it difficult to determine your ideal serving size.

Final words

If you’re new to consuming CBD, it can be a bit daunting to pick a method of consumption that’s right for you. It can be helpful to think about why you want to consume CBD and what your main goals are. From there, you can decide which method of consumption is best for you. And don’t worry; we’re sure you’ll find a method that you love. Always be safe and enjoy responsibly.
