There are many uses for CBD, from health and wellness benefits to quelling anxiety to applications for your pets (really!). CBD is a proven, powerful substance, and not Only are the uses plentiful, so are the ways to take CBD. When it comes to CBD and its consumption, more forms are popping up – from capsules to tinctures to even gummy bears, CBD has a lot of faces — with more likely coming soon! In the post below, we examine 3 ways you can take CBD when ingesting it (there are many ways to take it topically, too, from bath bombs to oils — but we’ll cover those in a later post!), and which one might be best for you.
Take A Tincture
A tincture is a concentrated substance made from a plant or herb, in this case hemp oil. The herb is soaked in alcohol or a mix of alcohol and water for a time. Tinctures are sold in small bottles, and taken in small quantities as they are concentrated. Tinctures are often taken through a small dropper, which is used to drop a small amount into the mouth directly under the tongue. Tinctures can also be added into a liquid – or even a food dish – and be taken that way. Some tinctures are flavored for just this purpose (unflavored varieties are available, too)! Tinctures can also be taken from a pump bottle.
Benefits: Convenient, Strong, Selection of Products, Discreet, Tasty (if flavored)
Consume A Capsule
A capsule, more commonly referred to as a pill, is one way CBD can be packaged. CBD is concentrated in a capsule, which is a fast and easy way to digest the substance. The capsule is ingested and then it spreads into your system, delivering a consistent dosage. A capsule is a good solution for those who don’t care about taste, as well as a good way to integrate into existing routines. If you are taking CBD to manage pain or for another health reason, taking a capsule daily is a good way to remember to do so, especially if paired with other vitamins or pills you are taking as part of your routine.
Benefits: Routine, Consistent Dosage, FAst-Acting
Grab A Gummy
Like candy? You’re in luck! CBD is available in gummy form, shaped as a much-loved snack the gummy bear. CBD candy is a good option for anyone who likes candy, and also the best-tasting CBD option out there. With a variety of flavors, you can combine a favorite taste with the CBD you are looking for. Gummies are also inconspicuous and easy to carry with you if you as they appear just like any treat.
Benefits: Flavor (delicious), Discreet, Enjoyable to Eat
