One of the most effective ways to consume CBD oil is sublingually, or under the tongue. The way you consume CBD products directly affects the rate at which your body processes its effects. When most medications and supplements are taken sublingually, the rate of absorption by the body is much higher.
So, what are the benefits of taking CBD sublingually?
- CBD is absorbed faster.
Bioavailability is a term used to describe the absorption rate of drugs or supplements in the body. A recent study, by the National Institute of Health(NIH), found that the benefits of CBD taken sublingually are absorbed by the body at a rate of 15-25% more than if consumed in other ways.
- A greater amount of CBD is absorbed when compared to other delivery modes.
When the beneficial components of CBD are absorbed under the tongue, they are not affected or broken down by the digestive system. The liver also doesn’t break down the supplement using its enzymes. This leads to the immediate transfer to the circulatory system.
- It’s a simple way to take CBD.
Sublingual CBD consumption is very convenient. In using CBD this way, you can use spray or a medicine dropper, spread it around under your tongue, hold it there for up to 90 seconds, and then swallow. The delay gives the supplement time to get absorbed by the body through the blood vessels.
How Using CBD Oil Under the Tongue Affects You
Sublingual consumption of CBD speeds up the process in which the benefits get to work inside your body.
The endocannabinoid system processes CBD in such a way that it maximizes the beneficial qualities it provides. The receptors, located in the endocannabinoid system, help to maintain balance throughout the body. This helps your body to maintain all facets of your activities throughout the day.
In general, CBD products do not contain THC, the chemical that causes the euphoric feeling when smoking marijuana. This is because while the body is being stabilized by the endocannabinoid system, there is no feeling of a “high” when the product takes effect.
CBD products offered by PUR IsoLabs also contain vitamins, nutrients, and acids that make up the cannabis plant, supplying your body with the essential building blocks often missed in our diets today.
Take CBD Sublingually in 4 Easy Steps
- Find out how much CBD is best for your needs. Suggested usage parameters can vary greatly based on intended effect and individual physiology. Anywhere from 10-200 mg of CBD are typical.
- Drop the CBD oil under the tongue.
- Keep your tongue on the bottom of your mouth, allowing the CBD oil to be absorbed by the blood vessels under your tongue. Hold it there for at least one minute, but aim for 90 seconds for the best results.
- Swallow any of the CBD oil that is left behind.
This serves as a general guide but always refer to the label of the particular product you are using for the best results.
What Kind of CBD Products Can Be Used Sublingually?
Three types, which are offered by PUR IsoLabs, can be taken sublingually:
- CBD Isolate Tinctures
- Broad Spectrum CBD Tinctures
- Full Spectrum CBD Isolates
CBD isolate products, like those available from PUR IsoLabs, refer to hemp products that have only one “isolated” compound in them, generally, CBD. In other words, the CBD has been the only compound or cannabinoid extracted from the hemp plant.
Broad Spectrum CBD Tinctures, contain the majority CBD, but also have small percentages of some of the minor cannabinoids of the hemp plant, including but not limited to, CBN, CBC, CBG. These tinctures have a THC level that is non-detectable by current laboratory standards.
Full Spectrum CBD Tinctures again contain the majority CBD and small percentages of minor cannabinoids, and can also contain less than 0.3% THC.
No matter which product you decide is right for you, all those offered by PUR IsoLabs are grounded in purity, and are backed by research and development by experts in the field of CBD.
