What is the best way to take CBD?

There are many ways to take CBD, but its important to note that it will have a similar physiological effect whatever the absorption method. The effects that the user can feel can vary from each delivery method, also the duration of the effects.

CBD Oil Tinctures

The most popular method of taking CBD is in tincture form. CBD is dissolved in carrier oil, and is dispensed via a dropper under the tongue.

The benefits of this absorption method are:

  • If applied correctly and absorbed through the mucous membrane the effects can be felt quicker than capsules, which then have to be digested before entering the bloodstream
  • If applied correctly, held under tongue for up to 3 minutes, this method has increased bioavailability in comparison to standard capsules

The disadvantages of this absorption method are:

  • Low bioavailability, between 13-19%
  • Hard to get an accurate dose with the dropper
  • Have to place dose in the correct area to achieve maximum absorption, so its very easy to waste an expensive product
  • To achieve the best possible levels of absorption you need to hold the oil under your tongue for up to 3 minutes. Who has 3 minutes to waste these days?! Not only is this inconvenient, it also can seem like an eternity with the bitter foul-tasting oil in your mouth.

Traditional CBD Capsules

Another popular method of taking CBD is in capsule form. The CBD extract is packed into a capsule or soft gel and is swallowed and absorbed into the bloodstream via the digestive system.

The benefits of this absorption method are:

  • Each dose is pre-measured inside the capsule
  • Just swallow the capsule with some water, convenient and no possibility of wastage
  • The effects are generally longer lasting than tinctures, and much longer lasting than CBD vape products

The disadvantages of this absorption method are:

  • Very low bioavailability, around 6%
  • Compared to tinctures and vape products, capsules take longer to take effect. Approximately 30-45 minutes

Mondo Water Soluble CBD capsules offer a significant advancement on the existing CBD products. Developed to solve the biggest problem that the CBD industry has faced – the low bioavailability of CBD Oil.

CBD Vape

Another method of taking CBD, that is enjoying a surge in popularity, is vaping. The CBD extract is dissolved in a PG/VG solution, inhaled via a vape pen, then enters the bloodstream through the lungs. Please note, CBD vape products that don’t contain PG/VG and instead use MCT oil as the carrier, are unproven in terms of safety. Some concerning reports have surfaced about the negative health effects of vaping MCT, so please do your research. Also, many vaping devices are not suitable for MCT oil.

The benefits of this absorption method are:

  • The effects can be felt almost immediately, it’s the fastest CBD absorption method
  • Some users report the effects being more intense and some have reported CBD vape to counter panic attacks
    High bioavailability, some studies suggest up to 56%

The disadvantages of this absorption method are:

  • The effects, while they have a quick onset, are not as long lasting as oral ingestion

What Are the Side Effects of CBD?

The genuine concern when it comes to side effects is whether or not the CBD you buy is legitimate, as you first need to find out if it’s even real CBD, as a synthetic type can be dangerous.

You should then look into how the plants are grown, how the CBD product is manufactured, and what quality assurance tests the CBD brand conducts to ensure safety as well as ensuring pesticides, chemicals, microbes and moulds aren’t present.

This is because it’s still largely an unregulated industry, and there’s a lot of great CBD branding and marketing out there, but unfortunately, complete transparency is rare and not knowing what you’re getting is commonplace.  Usually, that risk just means wasting your money, but it could be harmful if there are dangerous chemicals in the product.   You should be able to contact the company with any of these questions, as any reputable brand will be willing to provide its customers with all these details.
