CBD isn’t something new to most people. As a matter of fact, the cannabinoid is rapidly gaining in popularity. Whereas the majority of people consume it in the form of diluted oils, science thinks there’s a way better method of doing so: vaporizing.
For those that don’t know what we’re talking about: CBD is one of the non-psychoactive compounds found in the cannabisplant. Like the better known cannabinoid THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) carries many benefits to the human mind and body. In contrast to THC though, CBD does not get you high.
CBD works by bringing much needed balance to our internal endocannabinoid-system (ECS). This system – found in almost all animals on this planet – works as a control panel for the body, regulating all kinds of processes. These processes range from happiness to hunger and temperature to temper. That is the reason why CBD is helpful with so many different ailments and diseases. It does not cure any problem, but CBD helps your body fight problems itself.
How to take CBD
CBD is usually consumed in the form of an oil; typically a supercritical CO2-extract from hemp and diluted with (olive) oil for easier dosage. Taking 2-3 drops of this CBD Oil under the tongue allows for some CBD to travel through the mouth-tissue into the bloodstream to do its work. Noticed how we said some CBD?
A study published in 2012 shows that the bioavailability – the rate in which the body is able to absorb the substance – of these oils is extremely low.
Scientists concluded a bioavailability of 12-35% with the sublingual use of CBD oils. And although you’ll have to accept the loss of some CBD through your digestive system, you shouldn’t have to settle for less than half. Unless you really enjoy it and prefer CBD Oils over other forms of CBD of course.
According to science there’s a better way of consuming CBD, though. A pile of scientific evidence proves that vaporizing CBD is the most effective consumption method for the substance. With bioavailability rates ranging anywhere between 34-46% and some even 56% to show for. Combined with the practical use of CBD E-liquids, our Vapeasy CBD Pen and disposable vaporizer cartridges, it’s safe to say vaporizing CBD is definitely one of the best ways of consuming CBD. The most cost effective, to say the least.
