You’ve wondered about CBD oil and you’ve been wanting to try it. You aren’t sure how and you don’t know where to start. CBD can be taken in a number of ways and whether you choose to ingest it, vaporize it or take it mixed in with something, is completely up to you. We’ll discuss some of the ways you can enjoy CBD oil, even if you have discriminating taste buds.
CBD oil can be purchased plain or flavored and taken under the tongue, held for a few seconds and then swallowed. This will hit your system faster as they are absorbed right into the bloodstream via the capillaries under your tongue. You won’t taste the oil until you swallow and some people don’t care for the taste.
Some oils are flavored to give you a more pleasant experience but in reality, they don’t help much because the lingering flavor in your mouth is that earthy flavor that you either love or you hate.
Some people describe the flavor of CBD oil as ‘grassy’ and others say it tastes like marijuana. The reality is that each bottle may taste a little different because each batch of oil may be slightly different. If you don’t like the taste, you still probably won’t like it, even with a flavoring added to it unless you add it to food or drink to make it more palatable.

What Does CBD Do?
CBD is a compound found only in cannabis. It is a cannabinoid and many cannabinoids are found in other plant species but CBD is just in the cannabis family of plants, which includes hemp, marijuana indica, and marijuana sativa strains. CBD is highly concentrated in hemp and THC, the cannabinoid that causes psychoactive high effects, is very low in hemp. Therefore, most CBD oil is extracted from hemp and the value of THC in these full-spectrum oils is .03% or less.
For this reason, you cannot get high from taking CBD in any form. If you use CBD isolate, which is purely CBD, you will have no risk of failing a drug test but you may not have the same health benefits as a full-spectrum oil with traces of THC in, primarily because you are also getting some of the other 100+ cannabinoids that are known to be in cannabis.
When you are looking to buy CBD oil, look for third-party tested oils that you can be assured have been tested for things like heavy metals and the percentage of each cannabinoid. There will also be a terpene profile which some people also consider to be very important because some terpenes have much usefulness in combating pain, seizures, and other chronic conditions.
CBD is cannabidiol and when it enters the body, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote wellness in the body. The purpose of the ECS is to regulate moods, manage pain, and kick the immune system into high gear when necessary.
The ECS is made up of receptors located throughout the body. CB1 receptors are in the brain. CB2 receptors are located everywhere else in the body, with a focus on the gut region. CBD binds with CB2 receptors. When that happens, they form a lipid that travels the neural network, coating it with a protective coating to help you be mentally alert, focused and protect that network against injury and memory loss.
CBD also prompts the system to boost immunity and adds a lot of antioxidants to your system which are fantastic for heart health, anti-aging and more. The lipids help to block repeated signals from reaching the brain, which helps to regulate pain and the body’s response to autoimmune issues such as diabetes and more.
Taking CBD in your coffee is a perfect start to the day, every day.
