If you have experiencing some form of chronic pain or feelings of anxiety or depression, chances are someone may have mentioned considering cannabis as an alternative treatment to pharmaceutical drugs. Your first thought may be, “It’s not legal!” but not all cannabis is considered illegal. The non-psychoactive substance extracted from mature hemp plants, known as cannabidiol (CBD) allows you to experience relieving effects without the intoxicating high.
Recently, CBD products have been growing in popularity as an increasing number of potential health benefits are being discovered. For example, CBD has been known to help address physical discomforts ranging from chemotherapy side effects to chronic pain, provide relief to stress, anxiety disorders, insomnia, and several other ailments.
CBD products are available in several forms, allowing consumers to decide which would be the best administration method to provide them with relief.
Having CBD directly injected into your bloodstream is the most effective way of providing relief, however it is not the most popular or preferred method.
Inhaling Vaporized CBD
Vaping is one of the more effect methods of ingesting CBD because it can deliver a higher amount of bioavailable CBD into your body. Bioavailable CBD refers to the usable substance that allows your body to absorb. Unlike oral administration, vaporized CBD does not have to go through your digestive organs before it can be absorbed.
CBD edibles come in the form of gummies that strongly resemble our childhood gummy bear snacks. They are also available in the form of chocolates, cake pops, shots. Although edible CBD takes a longer time to kick in because it needs to be digested and broken down into usable and non-usable CBD.
However, it is the third most effective way of enjoying the potential benefits of CBD and one of the longer-lasting methods because any excess bioavailable CBD that is not directly absorbed can be stored in fat cells and released bit by bit over a period of a few days.
Although CBD oils are a good choice for consumers who may have trouble with capsules or are unable to eat gummies, they tend to have an earthy taste derived from the hemp plants which are usually camouflaged by sugary flavors found in gummies or other edibles.
However, infusing them with different types of teas and herbs can help to mask the earthy taste and help to further enhance the beneficial properties of teas or herbs you are drinking.
If you are not a fan of infusing the oil with tea, the alternative is to rub it onto your skin. However, this would be the administration method that has the mildest effect because bioavailable CBD does not get absorbed into your bloodstream.
