What’s The Best Way To Take CBD?

Let’s take a closer look at the best way to take CBD in order to get the most from this product.

When using CBD oils, you are able to have control over the serving amounts you place into your body. CBD is a non-intoxicating supplement, meaning it will not get you high. You can take your hemp oil supplement during the day without being concerned that it will negatively influence your day-to-day life.

The Best Way To Take CBD Is Overcome

At Overcome we offer three forms of CBD: tinctures/oils, capsules and topicals. But we don’t stop there, we focus on how effectively your body is absorbing the CBD and other cannabinoids.

We understand you want to make sure that you are getting the most cost-effective experience possible from your CBD. This means formulating Overcome products to improve absorption into the body. It's hard for the body to absorb most CBD products. At Overcome, we enhance our CBD absorption through specific ingredients and our unique delivery system. That means every dose gives you more.

For best results take CBD with a high-fat food

Beyond formulating for success, another way to ensure you are absorbing the most CBD is by using CBD with food. One study found that people who took CBD with fatty foods absorbed 4 times more of it than those who took it while fasting.

The best types of foods to eat are ones containing high fats, like hemp hearts or hemp seed oil, nuts, peanut butter or milk. Before taking an ingestible CBD product, be sure to either take it after a meal or take it with a high fat snack.

Eating fatty foods with your CBD improves effectiveness in the body because CBD and other cannabinoids are lipophilic, meaning they are fat-loving compounds. Cannabinoids solubilize or dissolve with fats, so if you ingest the CBD product with fat, the fat will help the CBD and cannabinoids move through the body, absorbing more effectively into the bloodstream.

How to take CBD oil and capsules

Like almost all hemp-derived CBD oil tinctures, our product comes with a dropper. A dropper allows the user to easily place the measured serving size into the mouth. In order for your body to properly absorb the tincture you’ll want to place a drop of the oil under the tongue and hold it in the mouth for 20 to 30 seconds before swallowing. This ensures that it gets into the bloodstream quickly.

In order to receive better results when using CBD topicals, Overcome CBD is mixed with base creams, essential oils, and terpenes. This mixture allows the nutrients and ingredients to access the cannabinoid receptors underneath the skin that are difficult to reach. You can feel free to apply CBD topicals anywhere you need them, whenever you feel the need for a little help.

As for CBD capsules, the cannabinoid is slowly broken down through the digestive tract before entering the bloodstream, which creates a longer lasting effect on the body. CBD capsules are as easy as any other pill to consume and you can track the dosage by the amount of milligrams listed on the bottle. For convenience, many people like to take Overcome CBD capsules at the same time as they take their daily vitamins or supplements.
