VIDEO – 6 Different Ways to take CBD Products
You have probably heard of CBD Oil, or perhaps even seen someone take CBD from a bottle with a dropper. But did you know that there is a large variety of ways to take your dosage of CBD? In this article, you will learn about 6 different, perhaps new ways to take CBD.
The Real CBD is a European CBD distributor that offers a multitude of different CBD products. As a result, we get a lot of questions about the ideal dosage, and ways to take CBD. That inspired us to create this article.
Different ways to take CBD
How CBD is consumed depends on the method of administration. Whether it is swallowed, inhaled, taken under the tongue, or applied to the skin plays an important role when we talk about the absorption of the active substance(s). Sometimes, the way you consume CBD can have a direct impact on the level of effectiveness of the cannabidiol into your blood.
1. How to Take CBD Oil
Before going into more detail about less-known methods, let us start with a short explanation about how to take CBD Oil, to refresh your memory.i Before moving on to the next topic, skincare, we have an additional tip for people using CBD for skin problems.
1.2 Mix CBD oil with regular lotions
According to many studies, CBD is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. This can be fantastic for the skin. It’s a good idea to mix some CBD powder with the body lotion you always use. You can do this by mixing the desired dose of CBD with a lotion of your choice. Stir it well and then apply it to the skin.
Please note that lotions with a high-fat content make it more difficult for the CBD to penetrate the skin properly. It is therefore wise to mix only a small amount of lotion with the CBD and then apply it to a small piece of skin as a test. The lotion should be absorbed quickly by the skin and easily mixed with the CBD. If this is not the case, try another lotion with lower fat content. Alternatively, you can take a look at our range of CBD creams. So you can start taking care of your skin today with the benefits of CBD.
2.1 CBD Skincare – How to apply Balm and other topicals
CBD applied directly to the skin will not reach the circulatory system, but it can still be preserved through the skin surface and thus bind with the cannabinoid receptors present. In fact, the skin is an incredibly active and useful organ that serves as a helpful atomic vehicle and absorbs the oils full of lipids. For example, the oils used in CBD ointments.i How does CBD work when it is applied to the skin at the cellular level?
When you apply CBD ointment/balm to the skin, the lipids that the oil contains and that the cannabinoids transfer will be transported through all skin layers. Shortly after that, the CBD can help to heal and recover by covering the cell and connective tissue layers. Therefore, ointments are the best method to treat skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis, because you can apply the product directly to the affected area and tackle the pain at the source.
2.2 Pain patches
The topical delivery of CBD bypasses the digestive process for the undiluted absorption of cannabinoids directly into the bloodstream. You get fast-acting effects with constant long-term relief. Each patch has 8mg of concentrated CBD. Packed with natural ingredients to give you extra health benefits and quick pain relief.
2.3 CBD Bentonite Clay Masks
A nourishing, moisturizing and caring mask. It helps to produce collagen and elastin and stimulates cell renewal. Add a small amount of water or apple cider vinegar to approx. 10gr of Clay powder. Mix it well (never use a metal spoon) until you have a smooth paste that is easy to apply to the face or area to be treated. Leave it to dry for 10-20 min and wash off with warm water. Apply moisturizer when the skin is dry. Use a maximum of 2 masks a week – more could have the opposite effect. If you want more recipes for various skin conditions please click here.
3. How to take E-Liquid
For many people with chronic pain or other medical conditions, vaping, also known as electronic smoking/e-smoking, with CBD e-liquid could provide rapid pain relief.
Unfortunately, there is not always accurate/enough information available about the product. So if you are interested in vaping CBD but you don’t know where to start…then you have come to the right place.
CBD e-liquid is almost the same as regular e-liquids, in the sense that they are both used as a liquid filling in an e-cigarette. In contrast to normal e-liquids, CBD adds cannabidiol instead of nicotine, which prevents it from being addictive. Usually, you inhale CBD e-liquid once or twice a day with a few touches at a time. After each pull, you take a short break of a few minutes.
Mixing with other e-liquids is not recommended because the dosage will be affected.
4. How to take edibles
Think of gummi bears or even popcorn that is enriched with CBD extract. The Real CBD offers CBD candy in the form of lollipops. Next to the lolly’s, we have our patented CBD Powder Capsules, which can be taken directly orally or can be opened and used in drinks and even food. Jump to the next chapter to learn more!
5. How to take CBD Powder
This is a good alternative for people who do not like the taste of regular CBD oil but also have difficulty swallowing pills and capsules. Simply open The Real CBD’s powder capsule (zero taste, zero smell!), supply its content into a blender as you make a smoothie, protein shake, or other drink. We strongly recommend CBD smoothies and shakes for busy people who are often on the road. If you don’t have time to make them at home, you can even add it to already purchased shake and then mix it. It couldn’t be simpler. Our CBD Powder can also be mixed in hot/cold drinks, food or even taken directly.

6. How to take CBD through your Belly Button
Many people are unaware that you can use CBD oil by applying in and around their belly button. – It is called the Pechoti intake method.
The Pechoti gland is located behind the belly button, and it is the gland that carries nutrition from mother to baby in the womb. Connected to more than 72,000 nerves that run throughout the body to various organs and tissues. By applying CBD oil to the belly button and using the Pechoti delivery method, cannabinoids have the ability to reach every part of your body. This is something that no other delivery method can provide.
How long does CBD stay in your body?
CBD is becoming a trendy alternative treatment for many ailments. However, what some people might not know is that CBD is only one of the many compounds found in cannabis. These components, called cannabinoids, are what gives hemp its therapeutic and healing effects. More than 114 different cannabinoids have been discovered, and the two most famous compounds within the plant are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The reason many people are choosing CBD treatments is that, unlike THC, no psychoactive side effects are associated with its use. In fact, the effects of THC are balanced out when there is an equal ratio of THC and CBD.
But you may be wondering how long CBD stays in your system. Maybe you’re curious about how long it takes for the effects of CBD products to wear off. Or perhaps you will be getting a drug test, and you’re worried they’ll find CBD in your system. Although most drug tests are only looking for the presence of THC, it’s still important to know how long CBD can be detected.
How long do the effects of CBD last for?
CBD has a good reputation as a natural healing remedy that can help with many different conditions and symptoms. When you ingest CBD, it works with your body’s endocannabinoid system, which is a big network of receptors that play a part in different bodily functions. CBD bind to these receptors which in return gives many positive benefits. For that reason, CBD can help treat conditions related to digestion, pain, mood, immunity and much more.
You can take CBD in several different ways, such as through inhalation, oils under the tongue, eating products infused with CBD and topical applications of balms, cremes and salves. Each method takes a different amount of time feel the effects, and the length of time the effects last, varies depending on which method you choose:
Option for ingesting CBD:
- Inhalation: You can inhale CBD products via smoking (CBD flowers) or by vaporizing (e-liquids). Smoking is the least healthy ingestion method because users often inhale more than just the CBD. However, inhalation is the fastest method of feeling CBD’s positive effects. The effects tend to be short-lasting.
- Tinctures (oils): This method involves using a dropper or pipette to put CBD under the tongue. Users hold it there for a couple of minutes. This technique typically kicks in within 30 minutes. Plus, the effects can last anywhere from four to six hours.
- Edibles: This popular ingestion method involves cooking CBD oils or Isolates into yummy treats like gummy bears, brownies, beverages and more. But you can also swallow CBD capsules If you’re looking for quick pain relief, this may not be the method for you because it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to feel the effects of the medication. However, the results last longer and can be experienced for up to six hours.
- Topicals: CBD products like creams, lotions and balms can bring targeted pain relief to such ailments as joint pain or skin issues. This method is very slow to kick in, usually taking over an hour for the meds to seep into the skin. However, some users report over six hours of long-lasting benefits.

How long does CBD stay in the blood?
CBD is completely non-psychoactive, which means it doesn’t get users high but many are still concerned about the presence of CBD in their blood. If you have to take a drug test, won’t you get in trouble if CBD is detected? The wonderful news is the majority of drug tests you will encounter are designed to identify THC in your system and do not look for CBD. Whether you’re an employee or an athlete undergoing a screening, most testers are looking for the presence of THC.
Because THC is the intoxicating cannabinoid, many researchers focus on how it metabolizes in your system. However, not lot of attention has been given to the metabolism of CBD. Because of its more recent popularity, fortunately, recent studies are now coming out to inform us on how long CBD can be detected in your system. Eventually, with time, we can only hope that the drug tests can be changed so that the actual amount/level of THC is indicated when tested, and not “just” the presence of THC.
Many things can influence the length of time CBD stays in your blood. But there are some general guidelines for how long it can be detected based on how often you take CBD products:
- One-Time Use: Up to three days
- Moderate Use: Three to five days
- Heavy Use: 10 days or more
What could influence how long CBD stays in the body?
Because CBD is a fat soluble molecule, it can potentially build up in your system with heavy, repeated use. Exactly like THC. That’s because it is stored in the fat cells for quite some time. In addition to this fact, everybody is different which means that you may process CBD faster or slower than others. Some of the factors that influence this include:
- How activity you are
- Your metabolism
- How much CBD you take
How can you use The Real CBD powder?
There is an array of ways how you can use CBD Powder. It is so versatile and adaptable that the list is endless. The fact that you can actually open the capsule and use the powder inside makes the usage almost limitless. The only thing the CBD powder will not dissolve in is oil and oil-based products. That does not mean you can’t put in ex your salad oil, it just means that it will not dissolve and you will see the powder “floating” around. It is perfectly safe to use in anything oil based but might appear milky.
Here are a few ideas of how to use the CBD powder
In your morning tea or coffee
For many, that first cup of morning coffee or tea is absolutely necessary in order to function as a human being. While you sit there planning, waking up or just trying to function, it is dead easy to just open a CBD powder capsule and dissolve it, in your hot drink. If you leave you CBD capsules next to your multivitamins you won’t forget.
Many people chose smoothies as a healthy option either post- or pre-workout or just as a healthy meal replacement. Why not make it even more healthy and pour the contents of a CBD Powder capsule into the blender together with all the other goodies.
Make your own CBD water!! Just open a capsule and add it to your glass of water or into your water bottle you take on the go… and voila’ you have your own DIY CBD water instead of paying 10 times more for a ready-made brand.
As our CBD powder is both odorless and tasteless, you can add it to any food without having to tolerate the taste of hemp. Sprinkle it over your cereals in the morning, or your delicious salad for lunch. Not only that – add it to a cake batter, or a stew and get all the benefits with your food.
In Pet food
As you might know it is not only us humans who can use CBD (cannabidiol) Our beloved pets also have great benefits with CBD and all it’s powers. Usually pets don’t mind anything natural by instinct, but some of our fuzzy and spoiled furry friends don’t like the taste of the CBD oil in tinctures. So here is the solution………. Open a tasteless and odorless capsule and sprinkle it in their food. You will soon see the positive and great benefits the CBD powder gives.
Vaping is a good source of ingesting CBD, but your local vape liquid shop might not have your preferred taste with CBD in it. So here is the solution to that problem. Get a pouch of CBD water soluble capsules, and open a capsule into your favorite e-liquid. Shake the bottle well and there you have it! – you own unique E-liquid with added CBD.
DIY Beauty Products
Instead of spending lots of money on CBD beauty products like facial cremes, body lotions, eye serums and hair products, you can add a few capsules into your own favorite product (provided its water based). Once you have let it dissolve you have your own DIY beauty product with all the added benefits CBD have to offer – without “breaking the bank”.
As they are – in capsule form
You can of course also just take the capsule as it is. Take it with a glass of water morning and evening and you have taken the recommended daily dosage for general health.

Why is our CBD powder so effective
How to take CBD – Ultimate guide on Different ways to take cannabidiol
CBD comes in many shapes and forms. There are several ways to get the healing cannabinoids into your system, all depending on your preference and your ailment. We are going to go through most of the options you have, how to take CBD (cannabidiol) and how to choose the best product and method.
Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs that you take orally (by mouth). They are easy and convenient to use because they usually come with a pipette for easy dosage. Tinctures are also easier to give to children, as they only have to take small amounts. Because they are taken directly under the tongue, they enter the bloodstream more directly than by any other means. Some cannabinoids will have an immediate effect, such as those used to help one relax (THC). Others that are more nutritive (cannabidiol) may take several hours to weeks of continual use before best results are seen.
Store your tinctures in a cool, dark place (not the fridge). You may carry and keep tinctures in a purse or briefcase. Be sure not to leave your tinctures in a hot area for long periods of time (ex. in a car). Heat can negatively impact the quality of your CBD oil. Depending on the carrier oil (we mostly use hemp seed oil) it can solidify in a very cold environment and be hard to get out through the pipette.
CBD Through your belly button
Did you know you could drop CBD oil into your bellybutton? Many people are unaware that you can use cannabidiol by applying in and around their belly button. Done via a technique called the Pechoti intake method. The Pechoti gland is behind the belly button. During pregnancy, the umbilical cord carries nutrients from the mother to her baby, through a connection made with the Pechoti gland. After the umbilical cord is cut, the Pechoti gland remains with over 70 million nerves are running over this gland to tissues and organs throughout the body.
By applying CBD oil to the belly button and utilizing the Pechoti delivery method, cannabinoids have the ability to reach every part of your body. This is something that no other delivery method can provide.

CBD Salve, Balms and ointments
Putting CBD on the skin is a way to enjoy the benefits of CBD without consuming cannabis. They’re useful for people because they offer local relief from minor aches and pains without the psychoactive effects of smoking or ingesting the flower.
Topicals come in a variety of forms. Some are moisturizing lotions made for everyday use while others are balms, salves or ointments designed to be a beneficial natural pain or skin relief. Some data indicate that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without side-effects
Studies also suggest cannabidiol could reduce many different kinds of inflammation. The pain and stiffness that comes post-workout or from overexertion certainly has a pro-inflammatory component to it, so it’s reasonable to think cannabidiol or other cannabinoids might have benefits, but we have no research to support this yet.
Topicals are a fantastic option as they’re easily measured in terms of ingredient compositions, and are higher in bioavailability than orally ingested compounds; this being because they are able to skip liver metabolization.
CBD Pain Patches
CBD Patches can offer all day or night relief, with a slow release of the cannabidiol throughout 24H. For some, this is a good alternative to smoking or vaporizing, which deliver effects that subside relatively quickly. In addition to this convenience, the discretion of the patch is an added benefit. The patch can be adhered out of sight giving relief anywhere, anytime.
The topical delivery of CBD bypasses the digestive process for undiluted absorption of the cannabidiol directly into the bloodstream. You get fast-acting effects with constant long-term relief.
Few things are easier to use than a Topical Patch. Simply place the patch on an area of skin that is free of hair, lotions, and creams. Press down gently and off you go! Using a CBD patch is as easy as putting on a Band-aid! If you want to read more about CBD pain Patches click here
E-cigarettes is a popular choice for getting your daily dosage of CBD. CBD e-liquids vaporises at approximately 200℃ which is perfect for use within an e-cig. It is nicotine free and does not produce a high. In conjunction with vaping, there is promising evidence that CBD use may help people to quit smoking.
When you inhale the CBD vapour, you’re allowing compounds originally produced by a plant to enter your body, travel through your bloodstream, and enter your brain. Other than intravenous application, it is one of the fastest methods of getting the benefits from the CBD oil.
Vaping cannabidiol is a discreet way of taking your CBD dose on-the-go without pulling out a tincture or bottle. No one will know you are taking CBD unless you tell them since CBD vape oil doesn’t have a distinct smell or look. When it comes to choosing a CBD consumption method, there is no right or wrong answer. No matter how you choose to take it, you will benefit from its therapeutic qualities. The benefits of vaping CBD are clear if you want fast relief and convenience.
Simply put, an ‘edible’ is a consumable product containing CBD. Traditionally edibles have included treats like pot brownies, cookies, ‘space cakes,’ and so on. Since CBD products also come from the cannabis plant (mostly hemp plants), the terminology simply rolled over and now, tasty CBD-infused treats are also referred to as ‘edibles.’
CBD treats like lollipops, Gummy Bears, chocolate and chewing gum only contain cannabidiol and other hemp-based cannabinoids. In other words, they will not get you high.
You can even make these yourself by using oils or CBD isolate and cooking it up into a recipe of your choice. However, this can make dosing CBD accurately quite difficult. Instead, you can choose to buy a ready-made CBD edible.
Like any other type of capsule, CBD capsules or pills can be taken with water. This is a convenient way to use cannabidiol and for some people the only way, because they don’t like the taste of the oils. Typically, capsules will contain 5–25 milligrams of CBD. The actual cannabidiol uptake is less, compared to the tinctures. This is because the capsule has to go through the digestive tract and it can lose up to 50% of its’s effect on that journey.
CBD Water Soluble Powder
You are looking at what might possibly be the best and most versatile water-soluble Cannabinoid-rich hemp powder in the entire industry. FULL-SPECTRUM and NOT made from isolates or long lists of chemicals, but a simple and honest two-component mix of full-spectrum hemp extract, with plant-based protein…nothing else.
Apart from dissolving fully in water, in e-liquids, and in all water-based foods, it also offers a host of other value-added benefits: An increased bio availability of up to 16 fold depending on what you use it in, compared to CBD oil. Being completely free from hemp taste and aroma it suddenly becomes easy (especially for younger children) to get the benefits of Full Spectrum cannabidoil.
The cannabidiol powder fits into almost any imaginable product, such as dry supplements, beverages, foods and food bars, sports nutrition products and vape e-Liquids or even just as a high-grade GMP raw-material.
All in all, this product will give you all the benefits you gain from regular full spectrum oils, but with all the value-added benefits described. It will even give you full control over taste and aroma and eliminate the need to use unnatural isolates.
