Let’s break down how to use CBD. There are tinctures/oil, which go under the toungue or in drinks, Gummies which you eat, and Topicals which you apply to the skin. Read about them and see which combinations can fit your lifestyle!


1. How to Use CBD Tincture Drops

Highly recommended for: Daily users, situational users, athletes, CBD chefs, new users, and advanced users.

CBD oil tinctures are easy to use, efficient, and certainly the most versatile option around at this time.

 Tinctures are oils infused with CBD. They’re primarily intended for sublingual absorption, (meaning you hold it under your tongue for about 30 seconds so it can permeate the membrane). 


Ingesting CBD oil for absorption through the digestive tract is an option as well, but it doesn’t act as quickly as sublingual absorption because of the metabolic process it goes through. Generally, you can feel the effects of sublingual absorption in about 30 minutes, while ingestion can take an hour or two.


Using oils of this variety allows you to customize servings to your exact specifications. For instance, daily users may decide to take a smaller amout for example 10 mg in the morning and a larger quantity in the evening before bed.


Smoothie anyone?

You can also use CBD tinctures in your favorite recipes or add them to a soothing cup of tea. Tinctures can come in different flavors –  we stock ones including orange, mint, and berry – so they can liven up the taste as well as boost wellness.


Tinctures can also include other beneficial ingredients. CBD PM for example contains melatonin, so one could take it before bedtime for a good night's rest. 



2. How to Take CBD Gummies

Highly recommended for: Daily users, new users.


If you’re going to take CBD, why not get all of the benefits in a sweet treat? CBD gummies combine the ease and consistency of capsules with great flavour and a little fun.


Gummies are a good option if tinctures or capsules seem too medicinal. If you’re around other people, they can be an inconspicuous way to enjoy CBD since it just looks like you’re eating candy. At the same time, they’re the best sort of CBD product to share with friends!


If you have any food allergies or sensitivities, be sure to consider the ingredients carefully. Some diets strictly regulate sugar intake as well.


3. How to Use CBD Topicals

Highly recommended for: Everyone, especially athletes!

 Topicals provide laser-focused relief where it’s needed most. Topicals are applied on areas with aches. But aches and niggles happen to non-athletes as well. That’s why CBD topicals are great for everyone!


CBD topicals come in a variety of formulas and concentrations, so which one you choose depends on your purpose in using it.

 CBD Freeze is an award-winning gel that incorporates menthol, the working component of products like Bengay. The menthol provides an instant cooling sensation.


CBD Recover doesn’t have menthol, but it does have arnica and MSM, popular in the alternative-medicine world, and a vast array of essential oils. Recover is a thick cream, so it might be a better option than Freeze if you have dry skin. 


Topicals like cbdMD Recover should be used only on sore spots. 


One potential issue with topicals is that they can get on your clothes, so be sure to give some time for them to sink in before dressing the affected area. Also, put them on undamaged skin – don’t use them if the area has scratches or cuts. Stop using them if your skin becomes irritated.
