how to use cbd oil three ways

If you’re wondering how to use CBD Oil, you’re in luck. Hemp Bombs®, a leader in the CBD industry, is here with information on how and why you should incorporate our premium CBD Oil into your everyday life. But if you’re still undecided on CBD, or unfamiliar with its numerous benefits, allow us to bring you up to speed before explaining how to use CBD Oil.

What is CBD?

If you’re new to CBD, you’re not alone. Over the past few years, the CBD industry has exploded, and Hemp Bombs was there to light the spark. Ongoing scientific studies and word of mouth about CBD’s powerful therapeutic qualities have propelled it to the forefront of a number of health and wellness conversations. But what is it? CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in both Hemp and Marijuana plants. Hemp Bombs premium CBD is extracted from Industrial Hemp grown on licensed American farms. Hemp plants have less than 0.3 percent THC, and CBD extracted from these plants does not have any of the psychoactive effects associated with THC and Marijuana. This means you can enjoy all the wellness benefits of our CBD without “feeling high.

How Does CBD Work?

So, how does CBD affect you? It’s all about your body’s Endocannabinoid System, or ECS. The ECS is responsible for maintaining homeostasis and regulating many other important bodily functions, including the body’s pain sensation, memory, mood, appetite, immune function, reproductive function and more. The ECS is composed of two types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. These receptors are naturally configured to accept cannabinoids like CBD, and they are found on cells throughout the body. If you consider how a lock is designed to fit only a specific type of key, CBD naturally links with these receptors to trigger a variety of health and wellness benefits – including the promotion of a calm and relaxed state, better sleep, and stress relief – depending on how and where the CBD is absorbed into the body. But it’s important to remember that CBD affects everyone differently, and you may have to try it yourself to discover how CBD fits into your lifestyle.

How Much CBD Should You Take?

But before we get into how to use CBD Oil, we should discuss how much to take. A few drops? Half a dropper? A full dropper? We suggest starting small and building your way up. A good way to do this is by keeping a CBD journal. Record how much you’re taking, and then reflect on these notes next time you take more oil. And by starting small, we mean really small. You can always take more, but you can’t take it back after it’s gone. About 10 to 15 milligrams of CBD is what we recommend for your first time. That’s about two to three drops. Start there, and if you enjoyed that amount, or if you feel it wasn’t enough, increase the amount you take next time. Once you get to a comfortable level, you’ll be able to make Hemp Bombs CBD Oil a part of your daily health routine. Click here to learn more about how to take CBD Oil from a dropper. Now that you know how much to take, here are three examples of how to use CBD Oil in your everyday life.

Eat It

Hemp Bombs CBD Oils come in a variety of flavors to satisfy any palate. While they taste great on their own, flavorless CBD Oils can be incorporated into almost any recipe without changing the taste, or flavored CBD Oils can be used to enhance some of your favorite dishes. Hemp Bombs provides several different recipes and tutorial videos on how to add CBD Oil to your diet, such as salad dressings, desserts, salsa and more.

One of the most versatile ways to incorporate CBD Oil into the foods you eat is with CBD butter. See our easy-to-follow guide on how to make CBD butter yourself. Any recipe that uses butter can be substituted with CBD butter to incorporate all the health and wellness benefits of CBD into your diet. Mix it or melt it into your favorite recipes, or even put it on toast!

Drink It

Before you start literally drinking the CBD Oil, allow us to clarify. Adding a half dropper, a full dropper or even more to your favorite drinks can help get more CBD into your diet and even enhance the flavor of your beverage. Hemp Bombs provides several recipes and suggestions to spice up your drink of choice, including CBD Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but you can let your imagination run wild.

Eating and drinking your CBD isn’t just about benefiting from the calm and relaxing properties associated with CBD in your everyday meals. CBD is also the perfect addition to post-workout shakes. When it comes to how to use CBD Oil like a pro, it doesn’t get much easier than just putting it in your drinks throughout the day.

Drop It

Take it easy. Don’t drop the bottle of CBD Oil. But do put some drops under your tongue. Whether you’re taking a few drops, a half dropper, a whole dropper or more, the sublingual method is one of the fastest ways to enjoy CBD Oil’s benefits. Sublingual means “under the tongue,” and taking CBD Oil sublingually is a fast-acting way to absorb the CBD into your body. Why? For that we need to understand bioavailability.

Defined as “the rate in which a substance enters the bloodstream and is circulated to specific organs or tissues,” bioavailability is the rate at which CBD metabolizes and the compound reaches your ECS. This is important because bioavailability varies based on the delivery method. For example, ingesting CBD has a bioavailability of between 6% to 20%, but taking CBD Oil sublingually has a bioavailability around 10% to 35%.

So that means taking CBD Oil sublingually is better than mixing it into food or drink, right? Not exactly. While you’ll feel the effects of CBD Oil “faster” taking it sublingually instead of ingesting it, those effects won’t last as long as mixing it with your food or drink. So, what works better for you? Do you want to feel the calming, relaxing, stress relieving effects of CBD as soon as possible, or would you rather wait to feel them longer?
