When it comes to taking your CBD you want to make sure you are getting the full effects you seek.
In this article we will break down the best way to take a CBD tincture according to bioavailability.
Sublingual CBD dosing is the fastest way to absorb it into your bloodstream.
So don't swallow right away????
That's right! Sublingual, or a fancy word for saying under the tongue is the best way to administer CBD oil. Place the suggested dosage under your tongue & hold the oil in place for a minimum of 60 seconds. The 60 second hold allows for absorption of the CBD to the blood vessels through the capillaries under the tongue, which efficiently bypasses the first-pass metabolism. This means the CBD oil does not go through the liver or stomach, so there aren't any enzymes to break the CBD molecules down. Without enzymes breaking down the CBD, it is able to reach the bloodstream faster and in higher doses. Most people see effects 30-60 minutes after taking CBD oil sublingually.
