Consuming CBD via oil is a method that has gained popularity over the years.
For this mode of consumption, cannabidiol is typically combined with a carrier oil (such as hemp oil) and then ingested.
Since CBD oil is ingested, it must pass through the digestive tract before hitting the bloodstream. This means that consuming CBD through oil will generally result in a longer onset (meaning it will take longer to set in) and may produce weaker effects.
There are various kinds of CBD oil to choose from. We believe it’s worth your time to research the different types.
A few key things to keep in mind when choosing a CBD oil:
- CBD oil is derived from either a hemp plant or a marijuana plant.
- Sometimes, CBD products derived from a marijuana plant may induce feelings of intoxication.
- Hemp-derived CBD is required by law to contain no more than 0.3% THC, whereas marijuana-derived CBD oil still contains traces of THC and remains illegal at the federal level.
We won’t get into the nitty-gritty details …
…. but if you don’t want to feel any of the effects associated with THC, it’s better to go with a CBD oil derived from a hemp plant.
