Thinking about trying CBD for the first time? We definitely understand why. CBD is loaded with benefits, free of side effects, and useful for treating pain, inflammation, or sleep/mood disorders.

The only question is, how do you get started? With so many CBD varieties available, the options are a little overwhelming. 

But don’t worry. We’re here to help.

Below is a complete guide on how to take CBD. We describe the 5 most popular methods and the pros and cons of each. Just read this short list to find out the best CBD delivery method for you.

1. CBD Vapes

For many years, brands like Aspire Vapes have produced nicotine vaping devices as a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. Today, lots of vaping devices are designed for consuming whole cannabis and cannabis derivatives, like CBD.

One of the most notable benefits of CBD vaping is that it allows you to feel the effects almost immediately. The other main advantage is that the numerous varieties available. Different brands, different concentrations, and varied cocktails of additives like flavoring and carrier oils give you thousands of options to choose from.

That said, if you like things simple, vaping might not be for you. It will take a lot of research and testing to find the one you prefer over all others.

2. Capsules

On the other hand, maybe you’re looking for something a little more inconspicuous. Not all CBD users are comfortable with the idea of vaping it up in front of everybody.

If that sounds like you, try CBD capsules. To everyone else, it just looks like you’re taking vitamins or aspirin.

Besides inconspicuousness, capsules make finding you’re preferred dose extremely easy. This is important because there’s no “one-size-fits-all” dose for CBD.

CBD affects everyone differently and is used for a variety of reasons. So each person has to experiment for themselves to find their ideal dose. 

Additionally, CBD capsules can be designed to have time-released effects. This isn’t the case with most other delivery methods.

3. CBD Edibles

You’ve no doubt heard of CBD gummies and other edibles infused with CBD. This is another easy-to-dose method for taking CBD inconspicuously.

CBD edibles also come in a huge number of varieties for you to try. You’ll no doubt find many types of edible CBD that are perfect for you.

4. Sublingual CBD

It sounds weird to CBD noobs, but there are some varieties that you take by placing one or more drops under your tongue. The thing is, CBD doesn’t have to be taken internally for you to feel the effects. It can be absorbed through the skin or, in this case, through the soft tissue of your tongue.

Sublingual CBD oils are absorbed quickly so that you feel the effects almost immediately. They’re also administered in measured droplets for easy dosing.

5. Topical CBD

As we just mentioned, CBD can be absorbed through the skin. This is perfect for those who wish to treat localized pain/inflammation conditions, such as sports injuries. If you don’t like the effects of internally taken CBD but still want to treat pain or inflammation topically, try topical CBD oils and lotions.
