There are several different types of CBD products such as oils, edibles, gel capsules, smokeables, vapes, powders, water-solubles, etc. We will take a look at three of the most popular and effective delivery methods of CBD & minor Cannabinoids: inhalation, sublingual, and topical.
In summary, there are several CBD or hemp extract delivery methods available. We recommend that you do your research, sample a few products, and see what works best for you!
Hemp extract products can be inhaled by heating the oil just enough to release their active compounds. During vaporization, cannabinoids enter your lungs and diffuse directly into your bloodstream. Vaping avoids the act of setting something on fire, which releases carbon monoxide and breathing that carbon monoxide in, no matter what the source, infiltrates red blood cells, which should be taking in oxygen instead.
Consuming hemp extract oil/tincture by sublingual method helps the absorption process bypass the digestive system and liver metabolization. This allows the compounds to reach your bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system more quickly. When administering sublingually, hold the oil under the tongue for up to 90 seconds so that the mucous membranes in the mouth can absorb the oil's active ingredients.
At CBD Holistics Company, we give you choices in sublingual oils. All of our options are carefully selected and typically come with a scannable code to bring up their certificates of analysis.
Products formulated to be applied directly onto the skin bind to the body's CB2 receptors on the skin, which activate the body's endocannabinoid system. Some products blend CBD with terpenes. Terpenes are responsible for unique flavors and aromas which define individual strains. They are also responsible, in part for the nuanced experience of each strain, including varied medical benefits.
