How To Use CBD Oil For Health And Wellness

Health & Medical Blog

If you have been looking into some alternative health treatments, then you may have noticed that CBD oil is something that you can try. The oil may help to reduce pain, inflammation, and nausea associated with cancer therapies. Unlike THC, CBD does not have mind-altering or psychoactive effects. So, you can use the oil without having to worry about feeling "high." There are a few ways that CBD can be utilized. Keep reading to learn what they are.

Take It Orally

Many companies produce CBD that has been minimally processed, and this is often referred to simply as CBD oil. Keep in mind that it is not the same thing as hemp oil. Hemp oil is created from hemp seeds and is often used for making lotions and for cooking purposes.

CBD oil is made from the cannabis flower. Hemp oil can easily be differentiated from CBD oil since it is thick like a paste. CBD oil is an oil that looks a lot like olive oil.

CBD oil will often come in a small syringe without the needle. Simply use the stopper and squeeze a small amount into a spoon. Place the spoon directly in your mouth to orally consume the CBD. If you do not like the earthy taste of the oil, you can squeeze a small amount underneath your tongue instead. 

These oils are specifically labeled for oral use. Tinctures are available as well. However, these are products made with alcohol to create a fluid that can be placed directly on the skin. They are not made for oral consumption. Keep in mind that the oil made for oral use can also be applied topically, so you may not need to buy two separate products. 

Vape The Oil

If you want to inhale the oil, like you would a marijuana cigarette, then you have the option of buying CBD vape liquid. These liquids are meant for use with electronic cigarettes. Both tank and pen varieties will often accept the CBD liquid. 

Unlike the oil made for oral consumption, the vape liquid is made from a mixture of CBD, propylene glycol, and vegetable glycerin. This allows for the safe heating of the oil without the chance of the fluid burning. 

Like other types of e-liquids, the CBD fluid comes in a variety of different strengths and flavors, so make sure to look at all of the options available to you before adding the oil to your electronic cigarette. 

If you want to know more about CBD oil and how it can be used, speak with a CBD retailer or healthcare professional.
