One of the final bills signed into law last year was a new Farm Bill. Under this legislative act, hemp products are legal across all 50 states. Thanks to this law, you will see a bunch of new products hitting the wellness and cosmetic industries.

These “it” products are CBD oil.

CBD is the therapeutic oil that pioneered the medical cannabis wave.

There are many purposes for CBD oil that include:

  • Alleviating Stress
  • Catching Some Zs
  • Applying CBD Oil for Pain

Just like there are many uses for CBD oil, there are also many ways to use CBD oil.

How to Use CBD Oil – CBD Edibles

For those new to using CBD products, CBD edibles are a great way to dip your toe into the waters. As the name suggests, edibles are CBD in nom-nom form.

CBD edibles include:

Besides satiating our sweet tooth, CBD edibles are handy because they come pre-dosed. You don’t have to worry about going overboard.

CBD oil for pain

CBD edibles are formulated in the recommended dosages ranging from 5mg and up.. You won’t feel the effects of CBD until it hits your bloodstream. Taking CBD in edible form means the CBD needs to pass through your digestive system before you start to feel anything. This can take over half an hour, depending if you’ve eaten anything else with your edible.

How to Use CBD Oil – CBD Tinctures

For those looking for quicker relief, a CBD tincture is a quicker way to introduce CBD into your system.

Nuts and bolts, CBD tinctures are comprised of three key ingredients:

  • CBD
  • Solvent (Typically Food-Grade Ethanol)
  • Natural Flavoring (Ideally Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils)

As anyone who has gone too hard on the chips and guac knows, the area under your tongue is pretty sensitive. That thin layer of skin is easily penetrated by hard tortilla chips and CBD tinctures.

Using an eyedropper, place a drop or two of CBD tinctures under your tongue. Sit for 30 seconds and swallow.

This method makes the positive CBD oil side effects almost instantaneous. The CBD oil goes through your salivary glands right to your varicose veins.

How to Use CBD Oil — CBD Lotions

Who doesn’t love a nice a massage? Well, treat yourself with CBD lotion!

This is an excellent source of CBD for those applying CBD oil for pain relief. Underneath your skin lies a series of receptors. These receptors trigger inflammatory responses on your skin such as flakes or internal aches and pains inside your joints.

By rubbing CBD oil into the affected area, the plant-based nutrients seep through your skin and lipids. This brings positive CBD oil side effects to the area quickly. CBD oil has become increasingly common in not just the wellness circle, but the beauty care realm as well.

What is your favorite way to use CBD oil? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I have found that candy does the best for me, however, the candy with THC seems to be more effective. I have tried the oil and candy, Hemp CBD and it does relieve some pain but does not help with the sleep aspect. I only use at night. Have you any thoughts on this matter. I am in TN and only Hemp is legal.

    1. A lot of people find that CBD works best with THC so I’m not surprised to hear that at all. Unfortunately, some states aren’t on board with legalizing THC yet 🙁

  2. I’ve been using a 99% crystal about 50 mg. daily. I also use about 50 mg thc in edible form besides the little that I vape. Even tho the country allows cbd’s, ohio has banned them till one of the new processors here in ohio start up. I can buy flower with my medical card, lol! it’s against the law to smoke it unless vaping. Can’t buy my thc edibles here yet either. I make my monthly trip to Michigan for them.

  3. Do you make Butter and other infused oils like you would with THC after you decarb CBD flower? I have a magic butter machine and I use the lift. I know you do a double decarb with ht CBD flower I have. Do I make butter or infused oil the same as THC or do I adjust timing?

  6. Hemp oil and oil and tinctures from flower aren’t the same. It’s important to educate people to the difference. There’s a lot of research done on flower that people who sell hemp try to equate to flower studies. If people like and get a response from hemp CBD, go for it. Just be clear about what’s being discussed. Many are already confused by the proliferation of hemp CBD oil marketing. In addition, there’s no standardization and little quality control so that purchasers need to know how to be cautious about what they are paying for and putting in their bodies. It’s especially important in people with autoimmune and/or chronic disorders. Thanks.
