How to Make CBD and Cannabinoids More Effective?

No matter what type of substance an individual is taking, it is only natural to ask, how can I make this more effective so that I can experience enhanced benefits. For example, those who take caffeine to wake up in the morning may seek ways to feel it faster and stronger by drinking on an empty stomach.

In turn, those who are taking CBD or using any other kind of cannabinoid may also be wondering how they can make their substance more effective. If you are using cannabinoids for health purposes and are curious if there are ways to make it so that you can make the overall experience even better, here is an article that discusses some of the ways that make this possible.

Ways to Make CBD and Other Cannabinoids More Effective

The most important thing to ask when you are seeking ways to make your dose of cannabinoids more effective is, "Are there are actually any methods that do serve this purpose?" "Will I be going through a ton of different suggestions, only to find that absolutely nothing works as advertised?"

Fortunately, in the case of CBD, there are some ways that have been said to help users improve the overall benefits and effects of their CBD. Let’s take a look at a couple of these methods below.

cannabinoids and facts

What Is Omega 3?

Omega 3, which is short for omega 3 fatty acid, is a group of essential fatty acids that the human body needs. However, because the body cannot produce it on its own, we have to get it through our diet. These polyunsaturated fatty acids, which consist of alpha-linolenic acid, docosahexaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, are found in foods such as fatty fish, flax seeds, and walnuts, for example.

However, these fatty acids are often made into supplements that make it easier to get your regular dose as well.

How Omega 3 Helps

Omega 3 fatty acids play a huge role in how well your CBD works. According to some, CBD helps to make sure that the endocannabinoid system is working properly by keeping receptors in their best shape, assisting in the growth of new receptors and repairing damaged receptors.

It also synthesizes cannabinoids in the body, keeping membranes healthy, transforming certain cannabinoids into other cannabinoids, and creating enzymes that help to produce or break down cannabinoids. Without getting enough Omega 3, your CBD isn’t going to work as effectively as it should.

Does CBD contain Omega 3's?

The good news about a lack of Omega 3’s is that you can get some of your dose by taking hemp oil. If you are already getting your CBD from a hemp oil that contains a mixture of Omega 3 in it, you are probably already getting enough of the required fatty acids. If you are using another method, however, you will most likely need to take supplements as CBD itself does not contain it.

Superfoods

Superfoods are foods that are said to be packed with a variety of health benefits and nutrients that make it so that you get almost everything you need just by putting that food into your diet. In its own respect, CBD is often considered a superfood as it comes with a variety of benefits. It can be easily taken with other foods or incorporated into drinks.

In theory, when CBD is used in combination with other superfoods, this should help to improve the overall impact of the CBD you’re taking. This is due to the fact that superfoods will often provide a host of benefits and work to improve your overall health. When you are healthy and working towards constantly improving your current health status, your CBD is more likely to provide the benefits that you are looking for. Therefore, you should always watch what you are putting into your body and you may want to consider adding essential superfoods to your diet.

Isolates Over Full Spectrum

When you are shopping around for CBD products, you will notice that there are two different kinds you will be able to choose from. You will either have a product that uses full-spectrum CBD or you will have CBD isolate.

Full-spectrum consists of not only CBD but a variety of other substances that are found within the hemp plant like THC, CBG, CBN and more. This means that, while you are getting CBD, you are not getting it in its purest form. Still, it is important that certain substances react when combined and may provide you with different yet enhanced benefits.

If you are looking for a pure CBD experience, you should go with a CBD isolate. CBD isolate is CBD extract that has gone through an additional process known as winterization to separate all other substances from it so that you end up with pure CBD. This form will give you only CBD and will make sure that you are getting the exact dose that you ask for.

Most Effective Ways of Taking CBD

Beyond the adding to the effectiveness of your CBD, there is also another way to make sure that you are getting the most out of your substance: taking it in an effective matter. Some methods of consumption, ingestion, or application may not be as effective as others and when you are using CBD for a certain purpose. This can make a world of difference.

Here are some of the absorption methods and give you a summary as to how effectively they will deliver your CBD.

Smoking/Vaping

At the top of this list of effective absorption methods lies smoking and vaping. Smoking and vaping are both excellent ways to get your desired dose of CBD and to do so in a way that makes sure you will get your CBD benefits quickly.

To begin with, let’s take a look at smoking. Although it’s not as heavily advertised, there are strains of hemp that contain higher amounts of CBD and these flowers can then be broken down and used in any smoking device in a similar way that people smoke marijuana.

For those who want to engage in the activity in a much more effective way and avoid some of the health complications that come with smoking, there is also the choice of vaping CBD. With vaping, individuals will use a vaporizer device that heats someone’s chosen CBD substance to the point where the active ingredients are turned into a vapor and then inhaled through the device. Using this method, users can choose from a variety of different forms including CBD oils, CBD flowers, and CBD shatter.

In addition to using a vaporizer device, vaporization can also be achieved through a dab rig and may be another consideration for those who are looking to vape their CBD and get the maximum effects. The difference? Dab rigs are designed to melt down CBD shatter, which is just CBD concentrates. Using a dab rig, this substance is superheated on a surface known as a nail and then inhaled through the water pipe that uses special filtration methods to cool down the vapor and prevent any contaminants from making their way into your lungs. 

Tincture Oils

Tincture oils are the next most effective forms of CBD consumption. For those who may not be aware, CBD tincture oils are not the types of oils that are applied to the skin. Tincture oils are actually oils that are meant to be taken orally and are kept within small bottles that have dropper attached to the top.

These drops of CBD oil are placed beneath the tongue and are held for a period of 30 to 60 seconds so that the oil is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body. It's better than swallowing it which slows down the process and makes it so that you have to wait longer to receive your CBD benefits.

Besides being extremely effective, these types of products are often quite enjoyable as some manufacturers will add additional flavors to help mask the plant-based flavor of the CBD oil itself. They also make it easy for the user to dose and easy to carry around and use without attracting attention.

Edibles

Speaking of enjoyable forms of CBD, edibles are perhaps one of the best experiences as it allows you to enjoy a treat while you get your dose of CBD at the same time. Much like marijuana edibles, CBD edibles have specific amounts of CBD baked into each treat or pack of treats so that the user can eat as much as they would like in order to receive the desired benefits.

The only thing that should be noted in this section is that CBD edibles are not the fastest method of distributing CBD. Because these CBD offerings must be consumed and absorbed through the digestion system, it takes a little longer for the body to get the CBD from the food. However, this method is extremely effective for those who are trying to receive benefits for their digestive system.

Pills and Capsules

There is a vast array of CBD product choices on the market and they’re not always for everyone. If you’re looking for a way to get your CBD without having to eat it or vape it, you may simply be looking for pills and capsules. Like other methods, CBD pills and capsules are quickly absorbed into the body and give you access to something that is easy to carry around with you and take whenever you feel as though you need it.

In addition, pills and capsules are easy to dose as you will be able to choose your desired dosage when you are shopping around for the right pill or capsule offer for you. In addition, you may also be able to find more products that offer CBD isolate with your pills and capsules.

Unlike many other products on this list, the type of CBD that is put into a pill or capsule doesn’t require the use of CBD extract oil that has only gone through one process and then was applied to the finished product. CBD wax that has been ground down is often much easier to put into pill form.

Lotions and Creams

Another offer that is not for everyone but works great for certain individuals, CBD lotions and creams are normal topical products that have been infused with CBD so that the user can absorb their CBD through their skin. The best part about these products is that they often smell great, are non-greasy, and help to moisturize skin so that you receive not only the benefits of the CBD but other benefits of normal lotions and creams as well.

As we stated in the beginning, these products are not for everyone. Lotions and creams are extremely effective for those who have surface problems or problems that only occur in certain areas.
