4 Keys To Success
For whatever reason we decide to start using CBD products, we all want to get the most out of them. One very common question we get here at Cannamor is from people wanting to know how to optimize CBD oil effects, so here are some tips straight from the experts about how to make the most of your CBD extracts.
1. Take it with fat
Luckily for most people, CBD extracts or oils are commonly mixed with a carrier oil that has a high-fat content, but why is that?
Well, it’s because CBD is a compound that is fat-soluble. This means it is broken down, transported and stored in fat, rather than water. So, in order to maximize the amount of CBD you absorb, make sure the carrier oil in your CBD product has a high-fat content.
Here at Cannamor, we believe in the whole plant extracted CBD, which ensures that the total integrity of the cannabis plant remains intact. That is why we use hemp seed oil as our carrier oil. Hemp seed oil itself is considered by many a superfood, thanks to its abundant levels of essential fatty acids Omega 3 & Omega 6.
What makes hemp seed oil particularly special is its balanced quantities of these essential fatty acids, as most food sources of Omega 3 & Omega 6 have relatively high levels of one, while not having sufficient amounts of the other hemp seed oil, which has healthy levels of both fats makes this oil an ideal carrier when investigating how to optimize CBD oil effects.
2. Alternate your delivery methods
Oral consumption of CBD oil is not the only way to utilize this fantastic compound. Using a vaporizer is a popular way of consuming CBD these days, allowing for discreet, and on the go, way to use CBD.
Another perk of vaporizing CBD is that thanks to the usually pleasant flavored e-liquids, the typical grassy flavor of whole plant CBD extracts are removed, which is great for people who are not fans of the natural herby taste. Different delivery methods have different levels of absorption as well, with inhaling being the fastest way to absorb CBD into the bloodstream.
This has its positives and negatives sides. It is great for those who are after quick relief as it is the fastest and most direct way into the bloodstream. Absorption through inhalation, however, also results in the fastest disposal of the compound from the body. This means that although the effects are felt far quicker than orally consumed CBD oil or extracts, the effects are short-lived.
This is why it’s always a great idea to combine different delivery methods when looking at how to optimize CBD oil effects. Many people tell us they vaporize our CBD e-liquids and take their CBD oil drops simultaneously, meaning they get the effects of the vaporized CBD almost instantaneously while giving their body time to absorb and put the CBD oil drops to work.
By the time the CBD from the vaporizer has been expelled by the body, the CBD drops have had enough time to be utilized by the body.
3. Start low, go slow – Why pace is important
As many of you have heard time and time again, the suggestion when it comes to starting CBD for the first time is ‘start low, go slow’, but have you ever wondered why that is?
Of course, there are a few reasons for this. One reason being that if you start at a higher dose and find relief from that, it doesn’t mean you wouldn’t find the same amount of relief from a lower dose. If you start low and go slow, while you work your way up with your dosage, you will be more able to find the perfect amount that works for you. No more, no less.
This way, once you know exactly how much you need, you avoid wasting CBD that your body might not need. A vital key when investigating how to optimize CBD oil effects.
The second reason, which is important to note, is if you start using too much CBD too soon, your body won’t be prepared to absorb all of this new compound. What does that mean?
Well, to put it simply, if you use a large amount of CBD straight away and don’t work your way up, chances are your body won’t know how to use it and it will end up in your toilet bowl, your body hasn’t been ‘trained’ to absorb it you will not get the greatest value out of the money you invest into your CBD product.
Of course, if you are in severe pain and need to try and find relief right away, perhaps low and slow is not something that could work for you. However, we do suggest not going overboard from the beginning and to try and allow your body to incorporate the CBD as effectively and efficiently as it can.
