Ways to consume CBD oil
This is a question we are often asked. Taking CBD oil can be as simple as putting the required amount under the tongue. But, for many people, the intense bitter taste of the oil is too pungent.
Luckily, there are many ways to ingest CBD oil. In this article, we are going to explain some alternative methods of consumption, such as taking our gel capsules, mixing it with different topical lotions or using it to prepare food and beverages.
Different ways to consume CBD
Gel capsules contain all the goodness of our CBD oil in an easy-to-swallow, tasteless capsule. They have the same potency as our golden CBD oils (4% or 10%) and can be taken orally, just like any other capsule.
Best of all, our capsules are made with a tasteless gel, making them ideal for those who don’t enjoy the bitter taste of regular CBD oils. Each of our capsules contains 6.4mg of pure CBD, making dosing extremely easy as well.
Unlike regular oil that is ingested by drops under the tongue, these capsules are absorbed through the digestive tract. Therefore, their absorption is slightly slower and they take up to 30 minutes to take effect.
Mixing CBD oil with ordinary creams/lotions
CBD is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and can be great for the skin. It’s not a bad idea to mix some CBD oil with your regular body cream. To do this, simply add your required dose of CBD (we suggest about 9-12 drops daily) to your cream or lotion. Mix well and apply to the skin.
Please note that very oily creams make it difficult for the CBD to be absorbed by the skin. It is therefore advisable to do a test: take only a little cream, mix it with the oil and apply it to a small area of the skin. The cream should be quickly absorbed by the skin and should also mix well with the oil.
If this is not the case, try mixing the oil with another cream that has a lower fat content. Or you can also take a look at our assortment of CBD creams, to start nourishing your skin with the benefits of CBD as soon as possible.
Mixing CBD oil with smoothies and other beverages
This is an excellent option for those who don’t like the taste of CBD oil and who also have difficulty swallowing capsules or pills. When preparing yogurt or fruit smoothies, protein shakes, or other beverages, simply add a few drops at the required dose.
Typically, CBD doses are only a few drops, so you won’t have to worry about the oil altering the taste of the drink in the slightest. We highly recommend CBD smoothies for busy people who are always on the go. And if you don’t have time to prepare the drinks at home, you can always buy a smoothie and add a few drops – it couldn’t be easier!
Make your own CBD edibles
Edibles are another great way to mask the flavor of CBD oil. This oil is extremely versatile and can be added to all your favorite dishes. All you have to do is briefly heat the oil with a little edible fat, such as butter or oil (you can use coconut, olive or sunflower).
