FYI: It is possible for extracted CBD oil to contain trace amounts of THC, since both compounds are present in the plant. So if your workplace has a zero tolerance policy, you might want to steer clear.
Basically, you’ve got to do some digging to find out of CBD is legal in your state.
Can CBD oil make you high?
The only real guideline for an “effective” dose is what’s been studied for treating seizures—a use that was recently approved by the FDA, says Timothy Welty, PharmD, chair of the department of clinical sciences at Drake University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
Beyond that, there are no other known chronic issues, Welty says. In fact, the World Health Organization has said that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential,” and that “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.”
The one use for CBD oil that has been given a gold star by the FDA: epilepsy. However on announcing their approval this June, the agency released another statement cautioning that lots more research needs to be done before CBD oil can be considered safe and effective for other uses.
Many of the CBD oil products on the market can be consumed under the tongue. HempMeds® pure CBD hemp oil and CBD liquid tinctures are popular CBD oil products that you can place under your tongue for fast absorption.
HempMeds® offers RSHO® CBD Isolate, a pure isolate powder with 99% CBD. A proprietary process filters plant material and removes excess waxes, leaving a crystallized CBD isolate powder with no taste or smell that you can place under your tongue.
Administering CBD oil under the tongue (sublingually) is one of the fastest ways to absorb CBD into the bloodstream. It’s also a simple means of consumption that can be done anywhere. Here’s how to properly consume CBD “sublingually”:
Effects of Placing CBD Oil Under the Tongue
By allowing CBD to bypass the digestive system and liver, the under-the-tongue method also likely increases the degree at which the compounds are delivered to the bloodstream. The percentage that a substance is absorbed into the body is referred to as bioavailability. One study found that on average, taking CBD under the tongue increases the amount that’s absorbed by the body by 15-25% than when it’s swallowed.
Our RSHO® Liquids blend award-winning RSHO® hemp CBD oil with MCT oil. Available featuring Green, Blue, and Gold Labels, RSHO® Liquid has a naturally light flavor that makes it ideal for under-the-tongue delivery. RSHO-X™ is a CBD oil liquid made with CBD isolate rather than full-spectrum CBD oil, making it nearly tasteless.
Hemp CBD oil products also provide your body with many essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, proteins, terpenes, and flavonoids. Adding these crucial nutrients that are often missed from our diets through daily CBD oil servings also promotes health and well-being.
As an extra bonus, taking CBD under your tongue means that a higher amount will be absorbed for use. This results in a greater effect from less oil, meaning that you could save money when compared to CBD products that are only eaten or swallowed.
From the 5 methods to take CBD, placing oil under the tongue is one of the most effective. It isn’t as effective as vaping, but because it is so simple it is still more popular.
Many CBD consumers report that once they are used to it, taking it under the tongue is quick and easy. It requires very little effort and can be completed in a couple of minutes without having to use any special equipment. Drops can be placed under your tongue discreetly, whether you are at home or at work.
Benefits of taking CBD sublingually
Simply, open your mouth and lift your tongue. Place the suggested number of drops under your tongue using the dropper provided. Then allow the oil to sit for between 90 seconds and 2 minutes.
When CBD is in your mouth you may notice an intense, bitter flavour. Because many high-quality oils get the best effects from using more of the hemp plant, they can be intensely grassy and bitter. While unpleasant, this alone won’t do you any harm. A mouthful of water will help with any strong flavours.
However, if you get any reaction that is worse, stop using it immediately and consult a doctor. This may only happen in two situations:
The word ‘sublingual’ refers to the large blood vessel found under your tongue. When liquids are placed there, they can cross the thin membrane and enter your bloodstream. The speed with which this happens has played a key part in this method’s popularity.
