CBD and where you can find it
You want to enjoy CBD and its benefits, but are still afraid of the effects? You don’t have to be. CBD is a cannabidiol that, like many others, is found in the hemp plant. THC is also one of these cannabidiols and is found in the same plant. The serious difference: THC provides the notorious high, CBD does not. Rather, CBD has a pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory and calming effect.
Sounds good? It is! In the meantime, word has spread about the consistently positive properties of CBD. Accordingly, the offer on the CBD market is broad. The cosmetics industry is going for it and the food industry surprises almost every day with new CBD products.
You see, consuming CBD today is anything but reprehensible. But what is the right way to do it? You will learn the 5 best ways to consume CBD in the following chapters.
Precious capsules: It goes down like oil!
CBD capsules are filled with CBD oil. If you are aiming for the effect, but not the taste, CBD capsules are an excellent choice. You swallow the capsules unchewed and do not have to fear a harsh taste. A few hours can pass before the effect unfolds. After all, the capsule must first arrive in the stomach and be decomposed by the stomach acid.
Once the capsule shell has dissolved, the CBD active ingredient enters the bloodstream. The effect lasts for about four to six hours, then it flattens out again. What studies have already brought to light, however, is that high-fat food increases the intensity of the effect.
The great advantage of CBD capsules: The intake is simple, unobtrusive and possible at any time. Even when traveling, for example on the plane, you can reach for the can and consume CBD.
CBD Oil: It’s under my tongue
The second and also very popular option to consume CBD oil is sublingual intake. Here, the CBD oil is dribbled in liquid form under the tongue. The receptors of the mucous membrane absorb the active ingredient and conduct it directly into the bloodstream.
The advantage: The CBD effect starts after a few minutes. Since the detour via the digestive tract is omitted, you benefit from a timely effect. This can last up to six hours, depending on the dosage and your individual conception.
So that the hairs on the back of your neck don’t stand up when consuming CBD via the sublingual route, CBD oil is available in different flavors. Most common are drops with fresh mint flavor or mixed with MCT oil from the coconut plant.
Vaporize: Vaporize CBD E-Liquid
If you dive into the world of CBD, you may certainly encounter the burning of the flowers and pollen. But you know what’s even better? Vaporizing. Because you don’t inhale any harmful substances that are released by burning the flowers and pollen.
Moreover, the vapor of a vaporizer is described as much more pleasant and less irritating. All you need is a vaporizer and a CBD e-liquid. You fill this into the tank and the enjoyment can begin.
Through inhalation, the CBD active ingredient – and really only this – gets directly into your organism. The bioavailability is correspondingly high. That is, the amount of CBD that is in your bloodstream.
The advantage of liquid CBD e-liquid: How much CBD you want to absorb, you can determine yourself via the number of puffs on the vaporizer. In addition, CBD e-liquids are offered in different doses.
And if that wasn’t awesome enough, you’ll also find different flavors at Tom Hemp’s. Fan of citrus? Zero problem. Lavender with pine? Say no more.
CBD Cosmetics: Beautiful from the inside and outside
So far, you have learned how to consume CBD orally or vaporize it. The popular ingredient of the hemp plant has now also made it into numerous beauty and care products. From nose drops and creams to bath bombs and lipsticks. Everything is possible with CBD!
Since CBD is a fat-loving cannabinoid, it can be absorbed very well through the skin. The external application has the advantage that CBD can be used and act locally. For example, for chronic pain in joints or skin diseases such as eczema. CBD ointments and CBD creams counteract inflammation and can relieve pain. After about an hour, the first positive effect usually sets in.
You long for me-time and want to pamper your body again? With CBD cosmetics from Tom Hemp’s you can escape the stress of everyday life. Because CBD soaps and CBD lotions let not only your skin but also your mind relax. Fruity-fresh scents and intensive moisturizing care make the wellness experience with CBD perfect.
CBD fruit gums and more: CBD Food makes happy
Foodies beware: Consuming CBD can be so easy and delicious! Need an extra kick of energy? Hemp protein is what you need. Sick of bland salad dressing? Try it with a spoonful of nutty hemp seed oil. Or would you prefer a little relaxation? Then hemp tea is the right choice.
From snacks to sweets like CBD fruit gums, the CBD food market offers you a colorful mix. Although you have to wait a little longer for the onset of the effect due to oral ingestion. However, after about four to five hours, the CBD active ingredient has reached the bloodstream and unfolds there in a unique way.
The advantage: CBD Food covers a wide range of preferences and tastes. You can consume the CBD discreetly and benefit from a long-lasting effect.
However, CBD foods are also to be enjoyed with caution. Because not every treat is officially approved for sale. Since CBD foods are considered novel foods, they are subject to strict guidelines according to the Novel Food Regulation. Although there are already several applications for approval of CBD food in Germany, an official approval has not yet been issued.
