CBD Isolate is no synthetic or lab-made cannabinoid. Instead, it is an all-natural product, extracted from the hemp plant and refined down to an incredible purity.
Dabbing is the most popular method of CBD intake, presumably for its high bioavailabilty and immediate effects as well as the great taste when infused with terpenes. This method however is not for everyone. Because either a personal herbal vaporizer or dab rig is needed, typically the people who go this route already know who they are and have experience in vaping / dabbing. For users who do not vape / dab, we aren’t saying this is not the method for you, we just recommend starting with small doses (< .05 grams).
The second most popular method of CBD medication is making oils for sublingual or topical use. CBD crystalline is oil-soluble, meaning it will fully dissolve in oils. This is great for patients because it gives great versatility as to how their CBD can be utilized. You can dissolve it with a nice olive oil and use it on food. You can add it to coconut or MCT oil and drip it under your tongue. You can add it to hempseed oil and rub it directly onto the skin to treat pain at the source. The choice is up to the patient. We recommend starting with a relatively low dose (around 100mg or .1 grams) added to around 10ml of the oil of your choice. Give it about an hour or so to fully dissolve. This process can be sped up by gently heating your oil to around 150 degrees F but it is not necessary. This will give you 10mg of CBD per 1ml of tincture, allowing the user to accurately measure out doses. If using sublingually, We recommend applying 2 to 3 drops of pre-made tincture under you tongue, seeing how you feel after about an hour and going from there.
If using as a topical we recommend applying .5ml and rubbing the oil in until fully absorbed by the skin. CBD can be taken sublingually without creating a tincture, but because of its texture and somewhat bitter flavor this can be unpleasant for some, and we generally recommend creating a tincture with your favorite oil first. To maximize the efficiency and bioavailability of a tincture, we recommend applying it directly under the tongue rather than through ingestion.
Although ingesting CBD is possible and technically will work, it greatly reduces bioavailability to about 15% efficiency compared to sublingual absorption and generally takes longer to kick in.
