How do I use CBD oil? What does CBD oil taste like?
Cannabidiol (CBD), a naturally occurring compound extracted from the cannabis plant, is currently being studied for its potential therapeutic benefits and is available in many different forms. CBD is one of the hundreds of various components found in cannabis plants, which include both hemp and marijuana. CBD oil contains CBD dissolved into a carrier oil, such as hemp seed oil or coconut oil, and is administered sublingually (under the tongue).
A safe, non-addictive, and non-intoxicating substance, CBD is a popular choice because it absorbs quickly and is easy to use. Because CBD oil only contains trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it will not make you feel high. After being placed under the tongue, CBD oil is held for between 30 seconds and two minutes. This way allows more rapid dissolving and assimilation of CBD than swallowing the oil, taking a tablet, or eating a gummy.
Some people take CBD oil as a dietary supplement, while others use it as a sleep aid and to treat anxiousness, stress, appetite problems, and sore joints, among other conditions. Researchers are hopeful that CBD oil may be found to relieve aches and pains, and strengthen the immune system. Because of its role in your endocannabinoid system, CBD may help alleviate some symptoms associated with severe illness and disease. Many users report that it helps relieve nausea, boost appetite, and lead to a good night’s sleep.
CBD users generally report that CBD oil tastes relatively bitter with an earthy flavor. Users may also report a hint of sweetness. Not all CBD oils are the same, though. Depending on what the CBD has been made with and how it has been processed, one could taste much different from another. In general, the flavor of a CBD oil will depend on the type of extract it is, if it was filtered or purified, and the kind of carrier oil used.
If you like the taste of CBD, try drizzling it over fish or chicken or mixing it into salad dressings. You might prefer to cover up the taste of CBD by mixing it into a smoothie, blending it with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or adding it to your coffee. You can apply CBD topically as well.
