The human body contains cannabinoid receptors throughout it (brain, spinal cord, organs, skin) and those receptors are there to receive what the body naturally produces which are called endocannabinoids. the endocannabinoid system regulates metabolism, immune system function, hormone release and memory. This is why cannabinoids that come from the cannabis plant can interact with those receptors.


This method of consuming hemp CBD involves swallowing CBD oil or eating foods with CBD oil contained in them. The Cannabidiol is processed through the liver and can take up to 2 hours to become active in the body depending on a number of factors. This is least consistent method of delivery.


As with most tinctures, this method consists of using a measured dropper to drop CBD oil under the tongue. By holding for the oil there under the tongue and allowing it to dissolve for about 90 seconds, the body's tissue directly absorbs the phytochemicals into the bloodstream. This method bypasses the digestive system and liver and activates much faster than ingestion. As with all CBD products, a carrier oil is used to "carry" the oil and dilute it so that the flavor is palatable and potency can be controlled and measured.


Another method for consuming CBD is to apply it topically to the skin. The skin synthesizes cannabinoids via the skin's receptors in the epidermal layers, hair follicle cells, sebaceous glands, keratinocytes and sebaceous glands. The topical method is often used to soothe dry/itchy skin as well as other common skin conditions. Other types of topicals are used to support recovery from activities that may result in inflammation. Many topicals also contain other healing ingredients to complement the effects of the CBD.


Dry Flower can be vaporized using a dry herb vaporizer. This creates a thin vapor of active cannabinoids. Many prefer this method over smoking because it avoids many of the toxic byproducts associated with combustion and smoke. We find it to be a cleaner and tastier method compared with traditional smoking. The cannabinoids enter the bloodstream through the lungs and the effects are felt right away.

CBD oil can also be inhaled but we urge extreme caution when considering this method. Many companies blend the oil with toxic additives which can severely injure the lungs.
