Here are some of the more common ways to take CBD:

Tincture (oil either sublingual or swallowed)

Tinctures (usually in oil form) are taken by dropper placed directly under your tongue (sublingual).   Tinctures are one of the quickest methods to absorb CBD,  typically taking about 15 to 30 minutes to feel the effects. This quick absorption and effectiveness could help those who are taking CBD for anxiety or depression.

Topicals are rubbed directly onto sore muscles or joints, to ease pain by reducing inflammation.  CBD balms typically include extracts made with a base such as beeswax or coconut oil which allows the CBD to penetrate.

Edibles are a fun and easy way to take CBD.  CBD edibles take longer to deliver the effects of CBD because the CBD enters the bloodstream through the digestive system.  There are many forms of edibles on the market- CBD gummies, CBD mints, CBD gum.   You can also add CBD to food and beverages.


CBD capsules are similar to an CBD edible.  CBD in capsule form can take 30 minutes or longer to digest before you feel the effects.  A benefit of taking a CBD capsule is that the per capsule CBD dose is clearer than other forms.
