By now if you’re even slightly aware of world events, you’re at least aware to some extent of the huge shifts in the perception of cannabis all around the world. With Canada now becoming the second nation to legalize the recreational use of cannabis on a federal level, we can expect to experience some pretty significant changes in the next few decades. Besides recreational use, the cannabis sativa plant is being recognized more and more as a legitimate medicine for the treatment of a huge and diverse list of illnesses, physical or mental. You might know that CBD oil is super healthy supplement for just about anybody’s diet but maybe you don’t know how to use it in your life, let alone how to use CBD oil to its full potential. This article’s here to give you a few things to keep in mind when you try out your first CBD tincture to see what all the hype is about.
There’s a pretty good chance that any tincture you purchase is a mixture of several ingredients to aid in the delivery of the CBD to your body as well as to provide a better flavor. Some separation can occur if this is the case and a little shake back and forth is all it takes to get everything nice and mixed up again. When it comes to guides telling you how to use CBD oil, this is one step that is often overlooked which results in people taking drops of grapeseed or coconut oil with very little CBD, if any.
Let It Sit Under Your Tongue For A Minute
CBD is definitely active when ingested orally, but it is true that some of it can be lost to the digestion process. This is the number one rule for how to use CBD oil if you want to get the most mileage out of your product. Just let the oil sit there under your tongue for a good sixty seconds before you swallow it to ensure that your gums absorb every last CBD molecule into your bloodstream. This also helps you avoid some of the flavor for those really pure CBD products, which taste pretty darn nasty to most people. If you’re thinking “oh, but I like the taste of weed in my edibles”, trust me, CBD tincture does not taste like THC oil, it is much more bitter and tough to swallow, be warned.
