There are a few different ways to consume CBD, and there are also pros and cons to each of those ways. One of the pros to consuming CBD in pill form is that you know precisely how much you are taking. The only con with this one is that it takes some time for it to go through the digestive tract and make its way to the blood stream. Since we don’t know the long term effects of vaping just yet, that’s a pretty big con but it gets to the blood stream quicker, but so does the oil when placed under the tongue.
- With so many new ways to consume CBD, it can be fun to play around with what might work and what might not.
- Consuming them in capsule form helps you keep track of how much you are taking, but it takes a while to get to the blood stream.
- With topicals, you don’t know how much of it actually gets absorbed, and it’s hard to measure with several other methods as well.
“But it’s important to remember that even though this plant medicine is non-intoxicating, it’s still a medicine and should be consumed slowly, cautiously, and with the blessing of your doctor.”
