How to consume CBD?

Depending on whether you are taking CBD to combat pain, stress or anxiety, whether you are looking for an immediate or long-lasting effect, the method of administering the CBD is important.

Here are the most common ways to consume CBD to help you choose the one best suited to your needs.

The main methods for consuming CBD

  1. Inhalation of CBD flower (combustion)

This method of consuming CBD is therefore the fastest acting, as it makes its way into your blood system in seconds thanks to the thousands of pulmonary capillaries.

Benefits of inhalation:
- Quick effect
- Pleasant experience
- Visible quality

- Obviously not suitable for non-smokers
- Requires materials (papers or cartridges and battery)

  1. Consume CBD Oil Sublingually (under the tongue)

Another method is also to take a few drops ofoil of CBD under the tongue, letting them sit for 90 to 120 seconds.

This causes the capillaries to absorb the compounds and transfer them into your bloodstream in about 20 to 40 minutes.

Benefits of consuming CBD sublingually:
- Efficient access route
- Relatively discreet
- Easy dosing
- Longer lasting effects

- May have a bitter taste
- Limited consumption pleasure

  1. Consume CBD Orally (CBD capsules, drinks, CBD Gummies…)

When you take your CBD orally, it must first pass through your digestive system before finding its way into your bloodstream, which slows its effect; allow one to three hours depending on metabolism.

Comment consommer du CBD

Benefits of edible CBD:
- Long-lasting effects
- Easy to consume
- Discreet
- Gourmand

- Effects manifest more slowly
- Also sometimes contains additives like sugar and colorings

  1. Topically (CBD creams and lotions)

Applying CBD directly to your skin using a cream or lotion allows you to direct the CBD exactly where you want to feel the results.

Benefits of applying topical CBD products:
- Can be applied exactly where you need it
- Very easy to use
- Effective on skin problems and also on muscles

Disadvantages of topical CBD products:
- Acts only locally 

  1. Transdermally (Patches)

A transdermal patch will facilitate a slow and steady release of CBD into your system over a period of more than eight hours.

Benefits of transdermal CBD:
- Discreet
- Very easy to use
- Slow release
- Fewer “recharges” needed

Disadvantages of consuming transdermal CBD:
- May irritate some people with sensitive skin
- Can be quite expensive

You will therefore have understood that the way you consume your CBD must be adapted to the desired effects. The possibility of combining the different modes of consumption of CBD is also an interesting option. Every person is different, so listen to your body and find an intake that suits you.
