Just because something is good for you, doesn’t mean it has to taste bad. As a nation we worship the bitter astringency of brussels sprouts and kale and even matcha tea – knowing they’re full of goodness; disguising the flavour with sugar or butter or even cinnamon. But not everything good for you has to taste bad. And with CBD, there are plenty of ways to incorporate it into your diet without grimacing as you do it.
CBD oils are made by extracting CBD from the plant and diluting it with a carrier oil, such as coconut or hemp seed oil, to create a concentrated liquid form. Oils can vary in terms of CBD concentration, purity and quality. Some products may contain additional cannabinoids, terpenes, or other beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant, which is known as the “full-spectrum” CBD oil. On the other hand, some CBD oils may undergo additional processing to remove other compounds, resulting in a “CBD isolate”. Most people take a few drops of oil in the morning, before their morning coffee.
CBD gummies might look like everyday sweets, but they’re infused with CBD, giving you a fun and tasty way to consume CBD.
For many people, incorporating CBD into your every day creates a more balanced approach to having CBD in your diet. There are many different CBD drinks: tea, coffee, water or, INTUNE’s lightly sparkling, award-winning, fruity botanical beverages – perfect for a mid-morning pick-me-up or mid-afternoon slump.
With any CBD you consume, CBD gummies, CBD oils or CBD drinks, the cannabidiol is absorbed through your digestive system. From there, it enters your bloodstream and interacts with cannabinoid receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This interaction may result in various effects, such as relaxation, pain relief, or improved sleep. The onset and duration of CBD edibles’ effects can vary depending on factors such as your metabolism, the dosage, and the specific edible consumed. It is essential to start with a low dosage and gradually increase as needed, allowing your body to adjust to the effects. However, unlike some other forms of CBD consumption, such as vaping or smoking, CBD edibles provide sustained relief. When you consume CBD in an edible form, it passes through your digestive system and is metabolized by the liver. As a result, the effects tend to last longer than other methods.
Whatever way you choose to take CBD, you’d be best establishing a routine that suits you and your personality. Whether you prefer to consume them in the morning, as a mid-day treat, or as part of your evening relaxation ritual, finding a consistent schedule that works for you can enhance the overall experience.
