One of marijuana’s biggest strengths is the variety of ways a marijuana user can consume it. One method is to distill the main ingredients in the marijuana plant into oils which can be mixed into other products or consumed directly. CBD oils are a preferred method for users that want a less intense, less psychoactive experience.
What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for “cannabidiol,” one of the compounds in marijuana plants. When a person intakes CBD, the CBD binds with cannabinoid receptors in the body. The CBD stimulates the receptors, which leads to the body creating endocannabinoids. Unlike delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive; it does not generate the “high” commonly associated with marijuana. Though many marijuana users intake CBD for medicinal purposes, there is not a sufficient medical consensus regarding its effectiveness in treating medical conditions.
How to Ingest CBD Oils
CBD oil can be mixed into a variety of foods and beverages. It is possible to intake CBD oil directly with a dropper or a pipette. CBD oil can be taken orally via drops placed under the tongue or capsules that the user swallows. And there are massage paste that allow users to apply CBD transdermally.
