CBD is everywhere these days, am I right?
I have even seen some at the gas station.
And for as many brands as there are available, there are as many delivery methods. Gummies, sprays, capsules, vape pens. The list goes on.
So how do you know which method is for you?
Most of the methods above leave a lot to be desired. Most if not all of the CBD therein is lost in digestion and sent out as waste. Expensive waste.
I personally don’t want to wast even a single drop of my CBD so I took to the old research its method. That’s code for telling my major researcher husband to figure it out. He will read all of the data, watch all of the videos, do all of the things. I love that about him, don’t you?
As it turns out, what I already knew from five years learning all about natural wellness for our daughter recovering from autoimmune symptoms, was true with CBD as well.
To get the most bang for our buck, we need to bypass digestion. That means sublingual delivery. As simple as drops under the tongue. In this method, fat-soluble CBD is carried in healthy fatty oils into the body and into the bloodstream. This means the CBD has a better chance of getting to more places quicker.
But, let’s say you’re someone who just can’t get that oil under your tongue. Your next option for ingestion is in a capsule. That certainly isn’t going to bypass digestion, so you’ll want some healthy fats to help the CBD make its way.
Here’s a quick reference with tips:
If there was ever a don’t, mine would be this: Soy. Soy is a fatty vegetable oil for sure, but it’s also a hormone disruptor. It is often full of heavy metals, molds, and pesticides. These are things you do not at all want to go directly into your bloodstream.
Find a good organic, non-GMO, 3rd party tested CBD. One where the company posts its batch test results directly to its website.
The CBD Oil tincture my family uses is carried in MCT oil which has numerous benefits itself from weight management to mental clarity and focus. It is also infused with pure, therapeutic grade essential oils which are terpenoids that lend their abilities to the effectiveness of what the body can do with the cannabinoids in our CBD tincture.
