Different Ways to Use CBD

Different Ways to Use CBD

Cannabidiol is one of more than 100 chemical substances known as cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and is popularly known as CBD. Unlike its cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t get you “high.”

Use of CBD will depend primarily on personal preference and affects how quickly the CBD is absorbed into the body.

This article will discuss different ways to use CBD and the effects of each method.


One of the most popular ways to ingest CBD is through vaping CBD concentrates or oil. These methods of ingestion are likely more popular because the effects can occur immediately. In as little as 10 minutes or less, you’ll absorb 34% to 56% of the CBD. This is because, through inhalation, the CBD goes directly into the bloodstream.

You can inhale CBD in a few ways, either with a rig or disposable vapes. Both methods work the same way, but some may find that disposable vapes are easier on the lungs than rigs.

Vaporizing CBD Concentrate

Some prefer using an oil rig that mimics a water pipe to smoke CBD concentrate. This is accomplished by heating the oil rig’s crucible until hot enough to vaporize the CBD concentrate. Many CBD consumers choose electric oil rigs that take the guesswork out of this process.

Vaping CBD Oil

You may also use a vape pen to vape CBD oil. Many reputable vaping supply shops sell starter kits if you don’t already own a vape pen. Vaping is an excellent option to avoid the unpleasant feeling of vaporizing CBD concentrates while still getting the exact dosage of CBD and maximum benefit.

Topical Application (Creams/Balms)

CBD creams and balms are the most popular among those with sore muscles, skin irritations, or even headaches. They are easy to apply and are an excellent way to centralize around the bothersome area.

Carolina HEMP Cabinet has a variety of lotions, balms, gels, or creams infused with CBD that is skin-friendly and contains the medicinal properties of CBD.


Edibles have been increasing in popularity recently. One of the main reasons for its increased popularity is you can take them discreetly.

It is important to remember that it takes longer to feel the effects of edibles. Start low and go slow. Take a low dose and wait before trying again. The amount will vary from person to person depending on their metabolism, tolerance level, and other factors.

Carolina HEMP Cabinet has a large selection of edibles as well as capsules. We can help you determine the proper strain and potency and help you adjust your order as needed.


If you wish to take CBD sublingually, CBD tinctures are the products you are looking for. Place a few drops of the tincture beneath your tongue and hold it there for 30 seconds to allow time for the CBD to absorb sublingually.

A CBD tincture is a nutritional supplement that is a liquid and has a high concentration of cannabidiol. Tinctures can be made via CO2 extraction, which is the most popular method, or by steeping CBD-rich hemp flowers in high-proof grain alcohol and boiling it for many hours at low heat.

Carolina HEMP Cabinet has a great selection of CBD tinctures available. When choosing which tincture to use, remember that there are several CBD tinctures, including Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum (no THC), and even Isolate (only CBD).
