Are you new to CBD or would like to know the most effective way to utilize CBD throughout the body? When CBD is absorbed properly, receptors are activated to create balance and support a healthy body.
What’s the most popular way for absorbing CBD?
The most popular and common way for people to consume CBD is through the mouth. Most people have been adding CBD drops to their morning water, smoothies or other types of food. This has been the easiest way to consume CBD, however it may not be the best and fastest way to absorb CBD into the bloodstream.
How long does it take hemp CBD to reach the blood stream when consuming it orally?
Firstly, when consumed by the mouth, CBD is broken down by the digestion tract and then the stomach. Next, it is broken down by enzymes in the liver and what remains is distinguished into the bloodstream. This process has not been the most effective way to get the most out of CBD. Let’s dive into others ways to take CBD.
What’s the most effective way to consume hemp CBD?
The most effective way to take CBD is by putting the desired amount of drops under the tongue and holding for about a minute. When this happens, the CBD bypasses the digestive tract and the liver. What happens is mucus membranes in the mouth absorb the CBD and then it goes directly into the bloodstream.
Study on Absorbing CBD by under the Tongue
Here is a great study to explain this more in detail. There was a study performed with rabbits to compare the absorption of oral and under the tongue CBD solutions. The results of this study showed how hemp CBD, delivered under the tongue, had higher bioavailability than the CBD delivered orally.
What’s another popular way for absorbing CBD?
The last most popular way is applied topically to the skin. When this way is used, the hemp CBD never reaches the bloodstream. However, it can be absorbed through the skin’s surface to interact with nearby cannabinoid receptors. The nature of the skin is to block things from entering your body. However, if CBD balms and lotions are applied enough, they can be absorbed through the pores. In addition, this can create a positive effect on the area.
