CBD Drops – Oral Absorption
CBD drops are taken under the tongue and held until for about 30 seconds then swallowed. This sublingual delivery method provides a very high absorption level and provides quick relief in 10-20 minutes and lasts 1-3 hours.
Microdosing is taking small (1-5 mg) amounts a few times a day as preventative care.
CBD Topicals – Skin Absorption
Topicals contain uptake agents designed to transport cannabinoids into the bloodstream. Cannabis infused balms, lotions etc stay on the outer layers of the skin and work by reducing inflammation at the area applied.
Many people experience significant relief from topicals and are a favorite for many people with arthritis or muscle pain. Topicals usually provide relief in 15-30 minutes and last 3-6 hours.
