How to use CBD
Different methods of CBD consumption
There are many ways to consume CBD, each method naturally has its own set of pros and cons, and the best consumption method for you will depend on your individual preferences and requirements
CBD oil tinctures are the main way to use it sublingually. All you need to do is place a few drops of the tincture under your tongue and hold it in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. This is also a very discreet method and it will help you feel calm and relaxed.

Inhaling CBD is one of the quickest ways to enjoy its effects. When you inhale CBD, it goes straight to your lungs and into the bloodstream.
If you are relatively new to vaping, you can get a vape starter kit from many renowned vaping companies. Vaping works as a great alternative to smoking if you need the same concentration of CBD and the maximum possible effect without the harsh feeling that comes with smoking.

If inhalation is not for you, you can make use of topical CBD products. Topical application basically means using CBD balms, ointments, or creams on your skin. This method works best for sore muscles, skin conditions ( dry skin and scarring), and even migraines. Simply apply the balm at any sore area like the neck, feet, or back. If you have a migraine, you can massage it on your temples.
