CBD oil is indeed one of the best-known natural supplements you can get nowadays, especially since it has already been made legal in many different countries. This wonderful supplement is supposed to be beneficial for a host of medical conditions, and this includes diabetes, insomnia, stress and anxiety, chronic pain, and a lot more, and although we still need to figure out how the compound itself works, its potential is far-reaching and the beauty of it is that when you take it, you don’t have to worry about some of the common side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs. You can take CBD oil using different methods, but by far, the most popular method is the sublingual method (taken as a tincture), with the consumption of edibles being the second most popular one, especially for those who are new to the supplement. So which way should you opt for, then? Here’s a look at the pros and cons of ingesting CBD as a tincture and as an edible. 

The Sublingual Way 

The sublingual method is highly recommended for those who would like to experience the effects of CBD quick and fast. Here’s how it works: you can simply buy CBD oil in tincture form, and the concentration of the compound can vary from around 2.5 per cent to up to 25 per cent. The tincture comes in a small bottle, much like a bottle for eye drops, and you can ingest it by placing a few drops of the tincture under the tongue. You have to hold it in there for about half a minute to get the best effect, and then simply swallow it. The sublingual method is quite discreet and effective, giving you the full benefits of CBD in no time. 

There are many advantages to this method, first of which is the fact that it is easy for anyone to use and it doesn’t require the purchase of any tools or special accessories. With the sublingual method, you can also easily control the dosage, and the effects can be quite immediate as well. This method may have different results from one person to the next, however, so you have to determine the correct dosage for you. And although you can feel the effects almost immediately, it is still not as fast as other methods such as smoking or using a vaporiser

Eating It As An Edible 

You can also consume CBD as an edible, usually as gummies or candies. It is a method that’s fun and easy, particularly for beginners, and it’s discreet as well – you can simply eat the gummies or candies in public. Compared to the other methods, the effects of consuming CBD this way are longer-lasting, although it may take from two to four hours to kick in. Furthermore, you have the option to make your own edibles, such as pasta or butter infused with CBD. But you have to be careful of the dosage, because you may end up eating too much! It may take a bit of experimentation and trial and error, but once you get it right, you can take full advantage of the compound and its benefits.
