What Is The Best Way To Take CBD?

A Beginners Guide:

There are four main ways that one can take CBD oil: orally, topical application, or as an inhalant.  To make it more condusing there are also numerous different forms CBD oil comes in. While you can ingest it as a straight oil, it’s also available in capsules, tinctures, creams, and more.

Ingest It Orally

If you’ve never taken CBD oil before and you’re not familiar with vaping, we definitely recommend ingesting it orally to start. There are a variety of ways to do this and all of them are very beginner-friendly.

The easiest way to do this is to get capsules and pills. This is just like taking a normal over-the-counter pill, so it doesn’t feel too different or intimidating. It’s also easy to monitor your dosage this way since the capsules come in pre-measured sizes.

It also means that you won’t taste the oil, so if you think you might not like the taste, you should choose this option.

If the taste won’t weird you out, you can also just take the straight oil. However, it’s far more fun (and delicious) to use it in your food. You can add CBD oil to butter, oils, beverages, and more. It’s not uncommon for people to make a smoothie even healthier by adding a few drops of CBD oil.

This is an area where you can really get creative.

While oral ingestion is the most beginner-friendly method, you should also know that it will take longer to feel the effects of the oil. The oil will be absorbed by your digestive tract, which is a slower system.

It’s normal to not feel the effects for one to two hours after you first ingested the oil. However, once they kick in, they’re long-lasting.

Topical Application

If you don’t want to take anything orally and you’re mostly using CBD oil to treat aches and pains, another easy way to take the oil is by a topical application.

This is a great option if you want to treat something like joint pain or sore muscles.

There are CBD products created just for topical application, like lotions and creams. If you really want to get a full body CBD oil treatment, you could even buy a soap or shampoo made with the oil.  There are even CBD bath bombs for an extra relaxing bath at the end of a busy day.

If you’re using a cream, though, make sure you let your skin absorb it before washing. Your skin will absorb the oil well since there are so many receptors.


Finally, you can also get the benefits of CBD oil by inhaling it using a vaporizer. We’d only recommend this if you’re already familiar with vaporizers and have used them before, this probably isn’t the best choice for people new to both vaping and CBD oil.

You do have to make sure you get the right vaporizer for this, though, because not all of them are built with an oil of this consistency in mind.

Once you’ve bought the right vaporizer, you can buy CBD oil as e-juice. Just pop the cartridge into your vaporizer, turn it on, and you’ll be ready to go.

This is one of the most efficient ways to consume CBD oil since a higher concentration will enter your bloodstream. You’ll feel the effects quickly, but keep in mind that it will also leave your bloodstream faster.

Most Importantly – Do What’s Right For You!!

When it comes to finding the best way to take CBD oil, you should always choose what you think is right for you. With so many different ways to reap the benefits of CBD oil, finding something you’re comfortable with should be easy!

No matter what, make sure you chat with your doctor about your choice to make sure the oil won’t interfere with other medications you’re taking.
