• Most CBD medications are taken sublingually, that is, orally via oil or extract (tincture) drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 30 – 45 seconds before swallowing.
  • There is a 98% absorption rate with sublingual CBD tinctures because the CBD gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This allows for maximum absorption, as the active phytochemicals (CBD) are given a fast track into the blood stream, bypassing the gastric digestive process.
  • Alcohol based tinctures are more readily absorbed than oils.
  • Topical creams and ointments, nasal sprays, suppositories are also effective, as are smoking or vaping.
