There are many ways to get CBD into your system, each with its own unique benefits. Ingestion is a popular method. Furthermore, how one chooses to take CBD can have different effects.
Certain benefits are gained and given up when you choose to buy an edible over vaping CBD or placing CBD oil under your tongue. For example, your average CBD gummy doesn’t just look good, it is also handy and healthy. Read on to find out which CBD method and its benefits are best for you.
One of the key benefits of CBD ingestion is convenience. Since it is legal at state levels but still considered a bit taboo, not all public environments may be friendly to you taking a CBD product. Luckily there are several options available for various needs and situations.
One of the most discrete and portable options is gummies. If you are working at the office and want a quick dose of CBD, then popping a gummy into your mouth is a handy way to do so. Plus, it’s super easy to control the dose. If you only want half an amount, you can eat half a gummy. There is no liquid or droppers to mess about with.

Feel the Effects for Hours
Edibles also have the most extended active period of all hemp and CBD products. CBD needs to process through your liver, and the liver can only get through so much of a substance. So once the CBD hits the liver, it enters a “queue” of sorts. As more CBD gets processed, the queue moves up, sending CBD into your bloodstream.
The result is that the liver will keep redosing you with CBD for hours after you first ingest the edible. You can be enjoying all the benefits of CBD for as long as twelve hours after eating an edible. However, a timeframe of six hours is more common.
VAPING & CBD OIL
Six hours, still, is far longer than what you get from vaping (lasts 2 hours), and CBD oil (placed under your tongue, lasts 3-4 hours). For some conditions, such as insomnia and chronic pain, long-lasting effects are a must. And the convenience of edibles makes them much easier to integrate into your routine than other methods. Those dealing with chronic anxiety, for example, may eat edibles every six hours during their day. That way, they can always have CBD in their system.
Best Way To Start
If you’re new to taking CBD products, the best method is to start low and go slow. Allow it to build up in the system for at least 2 weeks – 1 month to start noticing real effects.
