Do you know how CBD works? The medicinal potential of this cannabinoid might surprise you. Here are some interesting facts about CBD.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural chemical found in the cannabis plant. Since it only contains trace amounts of THC (the chemical compound which causes psychoactive effects in marijuana), it is completely legal to consume in the UK. The popularity of CBD oil has skyrocketed as millions of regular users report substantial benefits from consuming 15-50mg a day.
With CBD oil, you will simply drop a small amount under your tongue and hold it for a moment. This is called sublingual application. The reason that it is dropped under the tongue is because it is an area which is rich in blood vessels. This means that it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream where it can interact with the body’s cannabinoid receptors.
The only faster way of getting CBD into your endocannabinoid system is by vaping. Vaping CBD e liquid allows the blood vessels in your lungs to absorb it into your bloodstream in seconds. It’s quicker because there are more blood vessels in your lungs than there are under your tongue.
CBD is also available in capsule form, which are simply swallowed. Capsules and softgels are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience and simplicity. It’s also super easy to regulate and maintain your dosage. Your digestive system slowly releases CBD into the endocannabinoid system as the capsule is broken down.
The most important thing to remember, whatever your preferred method, is to always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely nonpsychoactive.
Don’t expect to get “high” off of this organic chemical, however. CBD is all relaxation without intoxication.
While CBD still has an effect on your body, consuming CBD by itself isn’t going to send you on the cerebral adventure associated with THC. For decades, medical professionals and the general public overlooked CBD because psychoactive cannabis took center stage.
Now, the medical potential of CBD has taken cannabis to mainstream audiences. Preclinical trials over the past four decades have found that the cannabinoid shows promise as an:
CBD is often used by patients in the form of an oil. Medical cannabis patients with more chronic conditions such as cancer and epilepsy often use medical cannabis oil extracted from high-CBD varieties of cannabis.
