4 Ways to Use CBD in Your Life

Author: Jason Beverly

CBD's popularity has boomed significantly over the past few years. Since the 2018 Farm Bill was signed in the United States, CBD use and consumption witnessed immense growth. In this act, cannabis cultivation along with the selling of various CBD-derived products is allowed but with limitations.

CBD and Its Uses

What makes CBD a wonder compound enjoyed by people of different ages? Cannabidiol, shortened as CBD, is a complex molecule found in cannabis strains, like industrial hemp, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis sativa.

Unlike its fellow cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is associated with giving mind-altering effects to its users, CBD isn't a psychoactive compound, making it completely safe from triggering a ‘high.’

Furthermore, CBD is a highly versatile ingredient being incorporated into many products that stands out due to its natural and non-intoxicating approach to health and wellness. To ensure that you're reaping what CBD has best to offer, Noble Hemp offers a wide variety of premium quality CBD-derived products that you can use daily through the following ways:

1. Consume Oils and Tinctures Sublingually

CBD is naturally an oil-soluble compound, which means that its molecules can be activated by incorporating it into fatty oils, such as medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oils. Since cannabis plants contain many other cannabinoids and organic compounds, manufacturers have to extract CBD alone before adding it to their products.

You can enjoy the purest form of CBD from CBD oils. Depending on the type of your chosen CBD oil, you'll get different CBD concentrations and ingredients that deliver varying effects. One of the best ways to achieve its benefits is through sublingual consumption.

CBD oils and tinctures come in dropper bottles to assist your sublingual and oral consumption. When intaking CBD oil sublingually, you simply have to place a few drops under your tongue, hold the product for less than a minute, and then swallow.

2. Cook Hearty Meals With CBD Oils

Aside from sublingual intake, you can consume CBD oils and tinctures orally. However, many people tend to get turned off by the earthy taste of CBD oil, so a better alternative would be to incorporate it into your recipes.

With different recipes that can complement well with CBD, you can be experimental in the kitchen. But take note of the following tips when cooking with CBD oil:

cbd-oil-tincture-bottle-hemp-leaves
  • Always use high-quality CBD oil in your cooking.
  • Don't expose CBD oil to direct heat as it'll decrease the oil's efficacy.
  • Start with a smaller dosage and amount first, then work your way up.
  • CBD oils are best paired with fatty ingredients, such as butter and oil.

Use CBD oils to top off your smoothies, salads, coffee, and more.

3. Take A Puff From Your E-Cigarette

Sublingual consumption and ingestion are creative and effective ways to add CBD oils into your health regimen. However, their effects tend to work slower as the CBD oil has to bypass digestion first. If you're looking for immediate health effects, vaping CBD oils and vape juices may be the best method for you.

To inhale the vapor efficiently, CBD oils and vape juices are loaded into different vaping devices. CBD pods, oil cartridges, and disposable vape pens are ideal for beginners looking for the easiest option to inhale CBD.

If you're willing to splurge on more expensive devices, refillable vape pens are the best vaping device to use as they deliver more concentrated flavors, generate more vapor, and are more cost-effective in the long run.

4. Pop CBD Edibles on the Go

If you can't endure the unpleasant taste of CBD oil or don't prefer to cook with it, it's not the end of the world for you. You can still take this wonder compound orally through CBD edibles, which are the perfect product if you're always on the go and looking for discreet ways to consume CBD.

Here are some of the best edible CBD products available in the market today:

  • CBD gummies and chews
  • CBD chocolates
  • CBD-infused beverage
  • CBD protein bars and granola
  • CBD coffee
  • CBD syrup
  • CBD-infused dried fruits

Since these CBD-derived products mix different ingredients, they can mask the earthy, grass-like taste of CBD oil. As long as it’s provided with professional guidance, CBD edibles are great for children that don't like CBD oil's raw flavor.

Takeaways

CBD isn't labeled as a wonder compound for no reason! As a star ingredient for different products, CBD proved several creative ways to acquire its benefits, depending on your health needs, preferences, and budget.

Also, keep in mind that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn't regulate most CBD products today, indicating that they're not tested for safety, quality, and efficacy.

Before incorporating any CBD product into your health regimen, consult your health professional first for potential interactions and allergic reactions that can compromise your health instead of contributing to its wellness.
