CBD Taken Orally

Types: CBD oil, TincturesCBD EdiblesCBD Capsules

When you ingest CBD, it passes through the digestive tract. Here it’s assimilated into the bloodstream & from there it travels everywhere within the body.

Time-frame: This is the most delayed route for CBD to reach its targets, but also the most prolonged period that it’s active. Peak bloodstream levels are anywhere between 1-6 hours — best for long-term supplementation.

Oral – Sublingual (under your tongue) or Buccal (inside of the cheek)

Types: CBD oil, tinctures

CBD travels into your bloodstream, through capillary-rich areas underneath the tongue, along the gums and cheek. From here, it avoids first-pass metabolism and sent throughout the body.

Time-frame: This route gets CBD into your bloodstream faster than swallowing. Under the tongue (sublingual) is generally quicker than against the cheek (buccal). However, because most of the CBD absorbed, peak bloodstream levels range from 0.5 – 5 hours.

Inhaling CBD

Types: CBD Vape CBD eLiquid  / CBD Dab

When you inhale CBD, it passes to the lungs where it transfers into your bloodstream. Inhaling avoids the first-pass effect. CBD, when taken orally, is reduced before it reaches the system. 

Time-frame:  This is the most immediate way to get CBD circulating through your system. But it also is valid for the shortest period. Peak bloodstream levels are within 10 minutes.

CBTopicals / CBD Creams

Types: Creams, lotions

Topical CBD diffuses across your skin and reaches local targets. Muscles, inflammatory cells, and pain-perceiving nerves. Very little, if any, enters the bloodstream. Unless for transdermal activity.

Time-frame: Varies, depending on the target.
