If you are new to CBD or have been doing it a while, one of the first questions that are asked is how do we get the most out of our CBD?

If you have never used CBD before, you may have a bunch of questions. We, here at the Medicine Box, are here to help you answer your questions.

Bioavailability of CBD

If you have been researching CBD, you may have noticed that there are many variations on how to get CBD in or on your body. Some of the options are: you can vape it, take it orally, rub it on topically, or sublingually. With all of these options, it can be confusing. So what is bioavailability? It is the degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into the bloodstream. So with that being said, the bioavailability of CBD varies based on the consumption method.

Which method do we suggest?

Glad you asked! We suggest taking CBD tincture sublingually. Sublingual means to apply or place CBD drops under the tongue. There is a pair of small salivary glands beneath the tongue and the CBD gets diffused into the blood

stream through this tissue. By holding the CBD oil under your tongue for 60-90 seconds, it allows the most active ingredients in CBD oil to be taken by the capillaries in your mouth. Any leftover oil you have in your mouth, you can swallow and the leftover compounds will be absorbed through blood vessels in the digestive tract.

Three main benefits to placing the CBD oil under the tongue:

  • Fast absorption – this bypasses the entire digestive tract and gets right into the bloodstream where it is needed.
  • Greater absorption – it doesn’t have to go through the digestive tract and won’t be broken down by the liver.
  • Ease – It is very easy to take it this way, especially if you don’t like to take pills. It only takes a few seconds to place the drops under your tongue and go about your day.

  1. Thank for the thorough explanation of taking CBD sublingually.
    I’ve been hesitant to take CBD orally because I’m on so many prescription drugs and read how CBD can affect how prescription drugs are metabolized by liver.

    I’m assuming you dont put the entire dropper full under your tongue at once, unless your able to hold that amt there???

    I’m trying to avoid as little as possible of CBD entering my digestive tract and didnt know if I should be doing just a few drops at a time and hold it there for the 60-90 sec and repeat this process until I take the full dropper?
