What is the best way to take CBD? #1 Question asked...

CBD and Bioavailability

With CBD still being new here in the area, many customers still want to just try CBD the "best" way. As an emerging therapy, research is well underway, looking into its potential health benefits. Meanwhile, it seems like a new, innovative CBD product gets introduced daily, from the latest CBD cream to chewing gum. 

Researchers are still exploring how CBD can relieve certain health conditions, and how much CBD is required to be effective. Beyond how much, there’s also the question of simply how. Is there a “best” way to take CBD?

The conversation about the “best” way to take CBD almost always touches on the topic of bioavailability. But what is bioavailability, and how does it affect your experience with CBD oil?

What does bioavailability mean?

Bioavailability refers to how much, and at what rate, something gets absorbed by your bloodstream. It’s important to understand the bioavailability of a substance because it helps you determine how much you may need to take—and in what form—to ensure a proper dose actually ends up in your system. Otherwise, you may not feel the desired effects.

What is the bioavailability of CBD oil?

The bioavailability of CBD oil largely depends on the method of administration you use to administer it—in other words, how you consume the CBD. There are many ways to take CBD, from gummies and edibles to vapes and topical products. Each of these methods has a different bioavailability. We will be covering all forms of taking CBD and which how they each have different bioavailabity. We will start today with smoking/Vaping methods. Smoking CBD has been used by people for hundreds of years and its only lately that people have started ti turn to more popular methods of consuming CBD.

CBD intranasal bioavailability

CBD has an intranasal bioavailability of 34% to 46%, although some studies have reported rates as high as 56%. Inhaling CBD is the most effective method for ensuring a high bioavailability.

When CBD is inhaled, such as through a vape pen or vaporizer, it can be absorbed through your lungs nearly immediately. From there, the CBD directly enters your bloodstream, allowing it to travel and bind to the appropriate endocannabinoid receptors throughout your body. With each subsequent breath, you inhale more CBD, providing yourself with a continuous dose of CBD that can be absorbed quickly (within minutes) and efficiently (direct entry through the lungs).

We will cover sublingual which include Oils and tinctures beneath the tongue. Oral is a method people are already familiar with, from eating food to drinking beverages, and swallowing daily vitamins. Gummies , soft gels, capsules, any edible really will fall under this category. With all three of the above methods, you consumed the CBD through your mouth. There is one alternate way to take CBD—topically through the skin.
