Ever since 2013, when Dr.Sanjay Gupta endorsed Cannabidoil (CBD) as a relief for epileptic seizures, CBD has taken the world by storm. Whilst companies cannot make claims about CBD or it’s uses, there are countless research and studies showing potential therapeutic uses for hemp and Cannabidiol. Some of these uses range from Epilepsy and Multiple Sclerosis, to anxiety and stress, even chronic pain, as well as cancer and osteoporosis. Because there are so many possible uses, and more being discovered all of the time – many different ways of administering CBD and hemp products have cropped up on the market. The best part? Because they come from European hemp, they are legal in all 50 states and will not get you “high”.
With so many different types of CBD and Hemp Oil Products on the market, it can be difficult to determine which ones to use and when to use them. We’re here to help.
The easiest way to administer CBD is with capsules. Each capsule has a designated dose amount, so you will know exactly how much CBD you are getting. If a capsule is 15 mg, it will be 15mg every single time. The capsules also do a great job at masking the flavor of CBD, so you won’t taste anything.
The most common way to administer CBD is with oils. There are 2 types of oils – ingestible, and vape-able. To ingest CBD oil, it is recommended that you take it sublingually, by holding it under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. Vaping CBD oil will get it into your system faster than ingesting it, and is a great alternative to smoking high CBD strain herb (if you are a medical patient). You can get CBD oils in many different strengths, so there is something for everyone. Usually you can find a very pleasant flavor to mask the CBD taste, or you can go with an un-flavored or “regular” flavor if you do not mind the taste, or if you plan on mixing it with your normal vape juice.
Topicals are a great way to administer CBD if you have chronic pain, sore muscles, or are an athlete. CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, and has recently been discovered to have many benefits to your skin. It can be used as a skin normalizer, or to help relieve pain. When combined with another form, like an ingestible, it is can help to promote overall wellness.
Edibles ranging from candy such as gummies, to spreadables such as peanut butter, jam, or honey are a fun and delicious way to administer CBD. Edibles usually do a great job at masking the flavor of CBD, so if you don’t like taking pills or don’t want to take oil sublingually, this may be your best option. You can also mix certain edibles with food. For example, putting a spoonful of honey in your tea, or making a peanut butter and jam sandwich mixed with CBD spreadables.
As you can see, there are countless ways of administering CBD, and more emerging all the time, so there is something for everyone regardless of your symptoms or preferences.
In my personal experience, a great place to start is with Green Garden Gold, a company which carries a plethora of products, most of which are mentioned in this article. Green Garden Gold has received the gold seal of approval from CBD Oil Review, and has a 5-star quality rating. I trust this company because they are transparent and provide lab results upon request. They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee, which is great in case the product doesn’t work for you, or you decide you need something else. You can find their products at www.greengardengold.com.
