“Now the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you, may not be right for some…” (Our apologies if that theme song is now stuck in your head!)
Whatchu talkin’ bout Terrapin Select??! Well this month we’re talking about all the different ways that you can take your CBD. A good deal of what we like to address in our blog updates comes from conversations we have with our wonderful customers. Something that typically comes up when someone pays us a visit at The Turtle’s Nest is CBD delivery methods. By now a fair number of the general public have some familiarity with CBD, and some casual knowledge of the benefits of cannabidiol, but we still get quite a few questions about how it should be taken.
There really is no one definitive way to take CBD. Certain delivery methods like topicals might prove very good for some people, and not quite as effective for others. It all comes down to what particular ailments you’re trying to manage and your personal preferences. At Terrapin Select, we offer a wide variety of delivery methods from the finest CBD manufacturers on the market today. We thought we’d take this opportunity to give you a quick run-down of the CBD we carry, and how you can take it as part of your health & wellness routine.
The most traditional method of taking CBD is sublingual oil. This delivery method, though easy, might not be for everyone. It takes a little patience, and the discipline to hold a full dropper under your tongue for about 30 to 90 seconds. After that time’s elapsed you take what remains and swish it around your mouth making sure to coat the cheeks, tongue, and teeth before swallowing what’s left. This is by far the fastest way to get the benefits of CBD as sublingual oils avoid first-pass metabolism and absorb directly into your bloodstream & capillaries. You can expect results in anywhere from ten to thirty minutes depending on how much you absorb, and how much oil you swallow.
For the slowest, most extended release of CBD you might want to consider taking it in the form of a capsule. This is an excellent way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine in the same manner as you would a vitamin supplement. The slow release means you’ll feel the effects over an extended period of the day, taking anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour or two in order to manifest. This delivery method is both discreet and easy to manage on a day to day basis.
Many of the CBD capsules that we offer at Terrapin Select are blended with other nutraceuticals, vitamins, and natural ingredients to target specific ailments like stress, anxiety, insomnia, pain, and low energy levels. Capsules offer the additional benefit of being easy to organize, transport, and discreetly take. If you’re looking to create a daily habit with CBD, definitely checkout our capsules.
CBD can appeal to your sweet tooth as well. For those who enjoy a sweet or sour treat, CBD edibles are the ideal way to get a measured dose of CBD that tastes amazing. As with any CBD that’s processed through the digestive system, you’d take a gummy about thirty minutes or so before you need it to take effect. At Terrapin Select you can choose from sweet or sour options, broad spectrum or isolate, as well gelatin-free gummies for our vegan clients.
Topicals can refer to any products that go directly onto the skin. Those who are finding themselves experiencing muscle or joint pain in a localized area could benefit from the relief that CBD topical can offer. The CBD penetrates the dermis and helps to calm inflammation. CBD topicals are a go-to for those with carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, or are recovering from surgery on joints or muscles. Topicals often have menthol or lidocaine as well as CBD to maximize the pain relief.
Don’t be afraid to try all the delivery methods in different combinations to see what works best for you. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about what to try or how to buy. Be wise and be well.
