HOW IS CBD OIL TAKEN?
How Is CBD Extracted?
CBD can be extracted from hemp or marijuana.
Hemp is the most desired source due to its higher levels of CBD. Marijuana typically contains more THC.
CBD can be extracted in a number of ways including CO2, butane, ethanol, and coconut or olive oil. Each method varies on its cost and level of safety.
CO2 is the most expensive form of extraction and may be difficult to achieve.
Butane can leave a dangerous residue, and is the least recommended.
Olive and coconut oil extraction methods are safer and the least expensive.
CBD Treatments Can Be Taken in a Variety of Ways!
The most popular form is a tincture, a small bottle with a dropper attached. With an oil tincture, you can infuse it into your food or drink, bake it into edibles, or take it orally under the tongue.
CBD Oil can come in the form of a sublingual spray, which is also taken orally and sprayed under the tongue.
Ointments and Creams
Topical CBD comes in the form of ointments or creams that are applied to the skin as an anti-inflammatory or pain reliving treatment.
Vaporizer pens come in disposable cartridges and are the safest way to inhale CBD oil.
CBD oil may also be in the form of capsules that can be mixed with other vitamins and nutrients.
