Whether you vape CBD or choose to use oral tongue drops - which form of CBD you consume will depend on a few factors. There are no right or wrong answers, more a question of personal preference. Let’s find out about the key differences between the two, and discover which CBD products will work for you.
CBD Vape Juice
When you vape CBD, you inhale particles in a lower-concentrated mist form. These particles are then almost instantly absorbed into your bloodstream via your lungs and mouth. Once inhaled consumers report the effects of CBD to be typically felt within 30 – 120 seconds, lasting for anywhere between 2 – 6 hours.
Due to the nature of vaping and the lower concentration of CBD, you may find that you want to vape throughout the day in order to maintain the feeling that CBD will subsequently leave you with. In the instance that the effects of CBD will last for 6 hours, try vaping a couple of hours before your time is up to ensure continuity in your experience.
If you’re familiar with vaping, or a smoker looking to make a transition to a smoke-free life, CBD Vape Oil will provide a pleasant alternative to the e-juice or tobacco you might consume. Think maximum pleasure, minus the nicotine
CBD Sublingual Oil
For those looking for a longer lasting experience from their CBD products, using CBD oral tongue drops will be a dependable choice. The majority of those who use tongue drops report effects being felt between 30 – 45 minutes. To consume, simply hold 2 – 3 drops beneath your tongue and hold for 90 seconds before swallowing. By holding the drops underneath your tongue you’ll be allowing your mucous glands to absorb as much of the CBD as possible before it then travels through your body and digestive system.
The mucous glands are great to deliver CBD to your bloodstream efficiently, while absorption through your stomach lining is an altogether longer process. When you swallow CBD sublingual oil, the CBD molecules will go through an element of wear and tear as they travel and get broken down by enzymes along the way - that’s why holding the drops under your tongue is key to an effective experience.
It's also worth keeping in mind, should you choose to ingest any CBD infused food or drink products in the future.
The concentration of the absorbed CBD is greater to vaping CBD vape juice, which means you won’t have to use it as frequently. Try using a few drops, 2 – 3 times a day and see what works for you.
How much CBD should you take?
How much CBD you take will differ depending on you the individual. Hey – we’re all different. To begin with, a process of trial and error will ultimately need to be undertaken to establish which strength of CBD product works for you.
In every instance, we would suggest starting with a low strength of CBD such as 100mg – 300mg (per 10ml bottle).
CBD will take a little bit of time before it starts working at an optimum and in equilibrium with your body. Rather than being tempted to take large doses immediately and wondering why you're not achieving the results you had hoped for, use CBD in reasonably small quantities several times throughout the day over a prolonged period of time.
Understanding dosages and what works for you is a personal process that will differ from one to the next depending on our metabolic and biological makeup. You’ll find various recommended dosages printed on labels, though this should be considered as a guideline and importantly may not be the dosage that works for you. A legal requirement for all food supplements, very little reliable scientific research exists regarding dosages of CBD.
Why are people using CBD Oil?
We can’t make any medically beneficial claims about using CBD due to the lack of palliative and remedial benefits recognised throughout the EU and UK, however, a wealth of research and medical trials regarding CBD and the following conditions are currently being explored.
