CBD is having a moment. Everywhere you look, there are cannabidiol vape juices and baked goods, CBD oils and gummies. But if you’ve investigated the science behind CBD and are interested in exploring its properties for yourself, you’re probably looking for a way to ingest CBD that feels comfortable for you.
Interested in finding out the best products and methods for using CBD? Read on.
Why Should I Take CBD?
CBD comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant, used for thousands of years for its health and wellbeing benefits.
There’s a lot of confusion about CBD and THC because they’re both phytocannabinoids from the same plant. But while THC has the psychoactive properties we associate with getting high, CBD could have a natural role in pain management thanks to the way it interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).
You’ve probably heard of people using CBD for anxiety, sleep disorders and stress. So if you’re interested in improving your natural health and wellbeing, CBD could fit right into your lifestyle.
Ways to Ingest CBD
Finding the best way to ingest CBD can take some trial and error while you work out what’s right for you. It’s worth trying different products and doses to find what suits you best. Then you can track your daily intake to find that sweet spot.
Taking CBD sublingually (under the tongue) is one of the most popular ingestion methods. Using CBD oil in this way means it bypasses your digestive system and enters straight into the bloodstream. It’s a fast and effective method of using CBD, providing up to 50% bioavailability.
You can also drop our CBD oil directly into your mouth or into food and drinks. You’ll absorb around 20% of the cannabidiols for a slower-acting, but longer-lasting, effect.
Ingesting CBD orally or sublingually is a quick and easy way to use CBD oil. In addition, the dosage is easy to control. Best of all, with our naturally flavoured CBD oil, you can enjoy a clean and fresh taste and a mellow or more profound effect, depending on the dosage.
If you want to enjoy feeling calm and relaxed, either ingest several drops or hold the CBD oil beneath your tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. With our CBD oil range, you can enjoy refreshing notes of mint, chocolate & hazelnut or citrus, without the earthiness of natural CBD, which can be an acquired taste.
Edibles are one of the fastest-growing ways of ingesting CBD. But at Cheerful Buddha, we take things one step further with our CBD-infused coffee.
During the roasting process, we infuse our coffee with 100mg Hemp-derived CBD carried in MCT coconut oil. These THC-free brews are the perfect way to ingest CBD throughout the day. You can choose ground or whole bean, and our luxury arabica coffee is Rainforest Alliance Certified (RFA). Or why not try our Swiss water process decaf for the ideal night-time cup?
There are just a couple of things to remember. Keep an eye on how much you’re ingesting, and remember that edibles can take a while to kick in.
If you want a sophisticated way to ingest CBD, try our CBD chocolate. Like other edibles, it’s a discreet way to enjoy all the benefits of CBD and the flavonoids in our 70% dark chocolate.
Savour a few squares after dinner, and you’ll enjoy a slower-acting yet longer-lasting effect. Available in original, mint and chocolate, our CBD chocolate is also ideal for cooking anything — from a rich, dark chilli to melting, mouthwatering brownies.
