Mastering Sublingual CBD: Your Guide to Enhanced Absorption
Welcome to the world of CBD, where every drop and every morsel can potentially edge you closer to an oasis of calm and wellness. Among the myriad methods of consumption, one road less traveled is the sublingual route—taking CBD oils and edibles under the tongue. Why go this way, and how do you do it right?
Why Sublingual? The Speedy Highway to Wellness
When you take CBD sublingually, you're giving it a VIP pass into your bloodstream. Unlike ingesting CBD, which must navigate the twists and turns of your digestive system and face the liver first, the sublingual method skips all that. By placing it under the tongue, the CBD is rapidly absorbed through the mucous membranes, leading to quicker and more efficient relief. You could call it the carpool lane to wellness—less traffic, more action.
How To: The Simple Sublingual Strategy
Adopting the sublingual approach is like learning a new smartphone swipe—it's incredibly simple once you've got the hang of it. Here's how to unlock the potential of this method:
Step 1: Measure Your Dose
Precision matters. Use the dropper provided with your CBD oil to measure your desired amount. Or follow the instructions on the edible. This same method also applies to CBN and D8. All Mixed Up D8 gummies and our new Tiger's Blood D8 tincture are great ways to enjoy your experience. FECO is best dosed in a rice size grain. Many patients put their FECO on a piece of chocolate or a date to help chew and increase saliva.
Step 2: Drop and Wait
Carefully release the oil under your tongue or suck on the edible to allow the cannabinoids to be absorbed through your blood stream. Patience is golden—wait for about 60 to 90 seconds. It might feel like waiting for water to boil, but it's worth it. The cannabinoids are making friends with your sublingual gland.
Step 3: Swallow the Rest
Life's not always neat. After you've waited, swallow any remaining oil or edible. It'll go through the traditional digestive route and won't waste any precious drops.
Step 4: Repeat as Needed
Consistency is key. Repeat this process according to your wellness schedule for the best results.
After your sublingual session, you might just notice a quicker onset of calmness or relief from discomfort. This could unfold in minutes rather than the hour or so it might take with traditional ingestion. Like having an express ticket at an amusement park, you're riding the waves of well-being faster than the standby line.
