How can CBD be used?
CBD can be used effectively in many ways: orally, in the form of oil tinctures, capsules, gummies, etc; sublingually (under the tongue); and topically, when the product is applied on top of the skin.
CBD is also finding its own uses within the cosmetics industry and its inclusion is seen as a real selling point for products. It is no longer niche; some of the biggest beauty retailers in the world are now using CBD to create better products. From mascara to moisturiser, people across the globe are looking to CBD as a valuable wellness and lifestyle tool in the modern world.
Of course, with so many different products and options out there it can be difficult deciding what is the best option for you. A lot of trial and error is involved in finding the optimal format and dosage for you, but here is a handy guide to help identify the various formats and their benefits.
edibles, capsules, drinks, oils
These are designed to be consumed and are made with taste in mind. Edibles and capsules especially are a fuss free option and can be taken much like a daily vitamin. In this form you can also be sure of the exact dosage. You can also experiment using oils in your own home baking - make CBD work for you!
creams, lotions, balms
There are applied directly to your skin. Effective at combatting a variety of skin conditions, soothing any nagging aches and pains, reviving tired and tense muscles, or even settling restless legs. CBD balms should be seen as a vital asset to recovery with truly restorative therapeutic properties that can alleviate physical symptoms.
oils, tinctures, sprays
Taken under the tongue or sprayed into the mouth, a tincture or oil is a wonderful method to help calm nerves or settle a racing mind. Perhaps you need to find focus during the day, some gentle reassurance, or just to create space to breathe. Taking your tincture can often be your daily reminder to slow down and reassess. Try one of our CBD products to help you restore a sense of calm.
HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
The most beneficial way of taking CBD is to find the dose that works best for you. Tolerance varies from person to person, so introduce CBD slowly with a low dose and increase only as needed.
CBD can be taken every day, however there is no one size fits all usage. Remember that the effects of CBD will vary from person to person as everyone processes it differently. Dosage and effect can also vary depending on the problem that you are looking to relieve, the scale of the symptoms, and also the format of CBD that you choose to use.
It is important to start slowly and find the optimum dosage for you so that you are not at risk of overconsumption, or potential reaction with any medications that are already taking. CBD should be seen a useful tool to aid the human body’s response to situations of stress or chronic pain and inflammation, and not as a cure-all solution.
For best results, ease yourself into the practice and find out how CBD best fits into your lifestyle.
