With the hundreds of CBD products available, many just want to know the best and most effective ways to get CBD into their system. Look no further - here at BROWN'S CBD we only sell products that we know are highly effective and healthy. Here we will outline our top 3 methods.
1) Oral Oils
Oral CBD Oils are arguably the most well-known CBD products available. However, the quality and effectiveness of different oils and brands can vary significantly.
Many oils currently available have been over processed in an attempt to remove the natural taste of Hemp. While this does appeal to some, it can significantly reduce the effectiveness of the oil.
The entourage effect is an interesting phenomenon in which hundreds of active compounds, in their natural forms, work in synergy to create a more potent effect than if they were to be used in isolation. Thus, Aristotle's famous quote - "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is highly relevant to hemp.
What this means for CBD Oil is that the more one removes from the oil, the less effective it seems to be. 'Full-spectrum cbd oil' is a term used to describe CBD oil that contains all of the natural compounds that the Hemp plant produces. So, if you want to get the best results - always choose full-spectrum.
Most people find that taking the drops with breakfast and then with an evening meal works well. However, many also have an extra maintenance dose during the day.
It's important to hold the drops under the tongue for around 2 minutes before swallowing, as this allows for CBD to be efficiently absorbed through the mucus membranes in the mouth. If the drops are swallowed directly, much of the CBD will be broken down by the liver and not be absorbed efficiently. However, absorption can be increased by ensuring that you consume the oil with a meal that contains a good amount of fat.
2) Water-Soluble CBD
Water-soluble CBD products are designed to overcome the absorption issues that come from CBD being broken down by the liver. Bioavailability is the official term to describe the extent to which a compound is efficiently absorbed by the body.
Cannabidiol is a fatty compound that the body has a hard time processing, by making it water-soluble, one can increase bioavailability thus making the product significantly more effective. Our BIO-MAX product, for example, can be up to 10 times more effective than standard cbd oil when ingested. Furthermore, It contains all of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant.
On top of increased effectiveness, water-soluble cannabidiol also offers greater versatility and convenience. It can be mixed with any drink, which can either be consumed in one sitting or gradually throughout the day for a more balanced effect. CBD Oil will not mix with liquids and tends to stick to the side of the cup.
3) CBD Patches
Last, but certainly not least - CBD Patches are a highly convenient method of reaping the benefits of cannabidiol.
Transdermal CBD patches can be applied to any area of skin and the CBD will be gradually absorbed through into the bloodstream without ever needing to come into contact with the liver. This means that bioavailability is significantly increased. Bioavailability of cannabidiol patches seems to be over 40%, compared with just 10-15% for oral oils.
The gradual effect is also desirable for many, offering consistent relief for approximately 24 hours - your body even continues absorbing CBD while you sleep!
Patches are also the most discreet and convenient method, with a patch on the arm there is no longer any need to sneak away to the bathroom at work to use your drops.
