How to take cbd sublingually

CBD Oil drops and/or CBD/THC oil drops can be swallowed directly or delivered sublingually – meaning the drops are held under the tongue for approximately 60 seconds to then be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

As an emerging therapy, CBD has been shown to provide potential health benefits that help with everything from inflammation to pain to anxiety. Research is also ongoing with regard to the most optimum way to consume CBD. Bioavailability lies at the heart of the “best” method when it comes to consuming CBD Oil into the body. Bioavailability is calculated as the proportion of the active substance that enters the body and how much of it goes on to have a viable and active effect.

These two delivery methods can affect the onset, duration, and intensity of the effects of CBD and cannabis. There are more than a few pharmaceutical drugs that are prescribed to be taken sublingually. For instance, some fast-acting benzodiazepines that are used to treat acute anxiety are delivered in this way. The area under the tongue is able to quickly absorb various active substances and deliver it directly into the bloodstream.
