It comes as no surprise to us that many people are misinformed about how CBDs are commonly being used. Whether this misinformation comes from social stigma or a simple lack of exposure to CBDs, we want to break down that barrier and discuss the popular forms of CBD and the many ways CBDs can be ingested, inhaled or applied.
Oils like our hemp-infused coconut oils are used internally and as a topical.
CBD oil can come in different bases such as hempseed oil, olive oil and coconut oil to name a few.
Commonly applied to sore or tired muscles and achy joints, topical forms of CBDs are popular with active individuals as well people who are looking to speed up muscle recovery following a workout. An added benefit of a topical option such as our coconut oil, is the natural moisturizing effect the oil has on skin. Other CBD topicals include: lotions, creams, lip balms and of course, topical sprays like our CR Relief.
Many folks find that CBD capsules and gums are a convenient way to ingest the cannabidiols (CBDs). Adding a CBD capsule to your daily routine of vitamins and prescribed medications makes remembering to take the capsule easy for many. In contrast, having a chewing gum form of a CBD is great option to have on hand if you live a busy lifestyle and are always on the go. Capsules and gums are popular for those looking to relieve ordinary stress and anxiety, digestive discomfort, or temporary pain. CBD can also be extracted into other food items such as honey or water.
A tincture is a solution of hemp extract that uses ethanol as a solvent. Tinctures are a concentrated form of CBD and most commonly seen in a bottle with a dropper to put under the tongue. Tinctures are most often consumed orally but can also be applied topically. This option is excellent for folks who have difficulty swallowing as they can be added to a large glass of water and consumed easily.
Vaporizers are commonly used for pleasure, tobacco consumption and, of course, CBDs. Those who “vape” prefer the faster delivery of breathing in the vapor. The flower is heated to a temperature below the burning point so there is no smoke, but a vapor that can be inhaled. Vaporizers are extremely common and come in a variety of flavors and variations of CBD and THC levels.
There are a variety of options when it comes to how you choose to enjoy the benefits of CBDs. Everyone’s lifestyles and preferences are different. What might work for you might not work for another. We suggest trying at least two forms of CBD and see which works best for you!
