What is the Best Way to Use CBD Oil?

If you’re interested in trying CBD Oil for the first time you may be wondering, what’s the best way to use it? The short answer is it depends on you and your preferences. There are lots of different options of how to consume CBD products which may work better for you depending on why you want to use it.

To make it easier for you to decide on what’s best for you, here are some of the most popular ways to use CBD Oil.  


Vape it

Using e-cigarettes and vapes have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Vaping your CBD oil or e-liquids means you can experiment with a range of flavours and dosages. Vaping CBD is the fastest way to get CBD into your system and allows you to make the most of CBD’s positive effects - plus as many people are familiar with vaping anyway, this is a popular, affordable and easy-to-use method. Take a look at our range of CBD vapes to find your favourite flavour and right dosage for you. 


Hold under your tongue

Many experienced users prefer to hold CBD oil or a CBD tincture under their tongue. When getting CBD oil as a tincture you can measure out the exact dose you want and use the dropper that comes with the bottle to add a drop under your tongue. However, this method requires you to know exactly how much you need, and while they’re fast acting, it’s not as fast acting as vaping. The taste also isn’t to everyone’s liking, but it is very fast and easy once you know how. 


Swallow in capsule form

Another common way to use CBD oil is in a capsule. You can get CBD capsules which you can simply swallow the same way you would an aspirin. They’re easy to use and come with pre-measured dosages, so you can simply choose the right dose for you and take when needed. We have plenty of CBD capsules on offer which also have additional health benefits to give immunity support, aid digestion and much more.

However, in pill form they’re not as fast acting as some other methods, meaning they may not be the best option if you need a fast relief, such as if you’re using CBD oil for anxiety. There are also studies which show you won’t get as many of the benefits of the CBD, with one study showing that only 12-19% of the CBD consumed in this way will actually reach your bloodstream. This is much lower than using vapes or consuming the oil directly, but it is still a very easy and convenient method for many people. 


Chew and swallow as an edible

CBD edibles have proved very popular as they’re easy to use and taste better than some other options. CBD gummies are particularly popular - you can even get CBD gummies infused with Vitamin C or CBD gummy bears and gummies in a range of flavours in our range here at The Pharma CBD. They come with a pre-measured dose of CBD meaning you don’t need to mess around trying to work out doses but can simply take as many as works for you - plus they taste great and you can use them anywhere. However, CBD in this form will be released slowly over a longer period, meaning the effects last longer but aren’t very fast acting. 

Rub onto your skin

That’s right, there are lots of CBD-infused skincare products which you can apply directly to your skin. Not only can this give you wonderfully nourished and soft skin, but this can also target localised pain when you rub in on specific spots of your body. It has also been shown to help acne and sensitive skin, making it the perfect option for those who want to use CBD for beauty or pain purposes. 

Check out our range of CBD skincare - we have a wide range of serums and sleeping masks which could be just what your skin needs. However, be careful with this method as it’s possible to transfer it to other people if they get it on their skin!


What is the best way to take CBD oil?

Ultimately, it’s up to you. It’s all about why you’re using CBD oil as well as your personal preferences. If you want the effects fast, vaping or using tinctures may be best, but if you want slower effects and an easy way to use it, maybe edibles are the way to go. If you’re dealing with physical pain or want to improve your skin without actually swallowing or tasting CBD, try a salve to rub into your skin. 

It may take some trial and error to find the best way for you, but with plenty of affordable and easy options out there, there’s a right way for everyone.
