Taking CBD Oil Under Tongue And Other Ingestion Methods
Some people call CBD the first medically-relevant compound derived from the cannabis plant. Not so long ago, people who used CBD had only one method of ingestion — smoking the psychoactive cannabis plant. In all honesty, this method did more harm than good.
Luckily, nowadays you can take CBD oil under tongue, as a pill, or even as an edible. There are even CBD creams, tinctures, and sprays on the market right now.
The purpose of this article is to learn about the different ways of ingesting CBD. Specifically, we’ll explain why CBD oil under tongue is the best method. We’ll also take a look at how it compares to eating CBD, vaping it, and rubbing it on your skin (in cream form).
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis is illegal in most parts of the world. Still, some countries like Canada, Uruguay, certain EU countries and US states have decriminalized its use.
The medical use of cannabis mostly involves CBD, which is non-psychotropic, yet highly effective in some cases.
Although studies regarding the use of CBD to treat certain conditions have shown promise, most CBD products don’t have the necessary FDA approval. Medical use of CBD (at least in the US) is not advisable.
Methods of Ingestion
In the current market, you can find CBD in a lot of shapes and sizes:
- pills and capsules
- vaping cartridges
- skin creams and topical ointments
Medically speaking, the way you take CBD has a huge impact on how much and how fast your body absorbs it.
For example, if you were to eat a CBD edible, it would be absorbed relatively slowly. Your digestive system needs time to break down the edible in the stomach, and CBD only gets absorbed in the small intestine. Furthermore, you won’t know whether your body extracted all the CBD from the edible. Therefore, eating is an imprecise method of ingesting CBD.
On the other hand, if you take CBD oil under tongue (sublingually, to use the medical term), the mucous membranes in your mouth extract the CBD right away. The effects are immediate, and you get the most of the CBD. And not just that — the information traveling from your mouth to your brain can get there much quicker thanks to the sheer proximity of the two. So the time it takes for CBD to travel from your mouth to the cannabinoid receptors is much shorter than when you vape CBD.
The Bottom Line
There are multiple ways of ingesting CBD, as well as multiple products to choose from. Therefore, it can be troublesome to find the right product to suit your needs. In our opinion, a drop or two of CBD oil under tongue is the safest and most effective solution.
