When it comes to rapid product development, few industries rival CBD. Derived from low-THC hemp plants, CBD is a natural cannabinoid that is non-psychoactive but highly therapeutic. However, it can be tough for those new to CBD (and even those with some experience) to know where to start. There are tinctures, topicals, vapes, buds, edibles, drinks, cooking ingredients, massage oils; you name it, someone has probably put CBD into it. But what is the best way to take CBD for therapeutic purposes?
When it comes to ease of use and fast-acting bioavailability, CBD elixirs are quickly taking a prominent place in the market. A CBD elixir is CBD oil that has been processed into smaller molecules to achieve a water-soluble state which is much faster-acting and more bio-available than traditional oil drops.
Here at Medizin, we love to explore what’s new in cannabis and share everything there is to know. This article will help you understand what an Elixir is and how to use this new type of CBD oil drops for the best, most enjoyable effect.
CBD Oil Elixirs: Water-Soluble Sublingual Drops
Elixirs are a unique product on the market that has recently caught the eye – and tongue – of thousands of CBD enthusiasts. If you’re looking for a fast-acting CBD experience while still relying on natural production methods, elixirs are like tinctures, but faster acting and without the alcohol base. While they are called CBD oil drops in some circles, what really makes Elixirs unique is their water solubility, allowing them to pass through the membranes below your tongue much more quickly than usual.
What is an Elixir and How Is It Made?
Elixirs are taken sublingually like tinctures, but instead of using alcohol as a solvent, elixirs use simple CO2 (carbon dioxide) which is as natural as the air we breathe. The CO2 is used to extract the CBD and terpenes from the plant material organically, creating a safe and non-toxic CBD oil product with full flavor and effect. Elixirs are typically found in small bottles with a dropper lid to take sublingually – below the tongue.
Water Soluble CBD
What makes Elixirs so special is that they are water-soluble instead of the usual fat-soluble nature of cannabis oil. Using nanotechnology, the drops are then broken down into smaller molecules, which is what makes them water-soluble and easier for the body to quickly absorb.
How to Use CBD Oil Drops
If you would like to try CBD oil drops for yourself, you can start your journey with Water Soluble CBD. These Elixirs are formulated for flavor and potent effect, while giving you control over your own dosage one drop at a time.
Drop Under Your Tongue
Start by filling the dropper from your Elixir bottle by squeezing the bulb, submerging the dropper, and then releasing. This will pull one bulb worth of oil into the dropper. Then place the dropper tip below your tongue and release the elixir one drop at a time. Wait until you can taste the full flavor of your Elixir, then replace the dropper in the bottle and close your mouth.
Wait Before Swallowing
Hold the Elixir under your tongue for several seconds, allowing it to absorb into the membranes in your mouth before swallowing. Let the taste fill your nostrils and enjoy the complex flavor that rolls through your mouth. When you’re ready, swallow the Elixir to complete absorption through your digestive system for a fully holistic experience.
Repeat After 5 Minutes As Desired
Wait 5 minutes. You will now be able to feel the effects of the water-soluble CBD oil drops you have already absorbed. If you desire a stronger experience, repeat the process every 5 minutes until you are satisfied. You can then ride the warm fuzzy feeling until you’re ready for another dose in a few minutes or a few hours.
Dosage for CBD Oil Drops
Always think about dosage when trying a new cannabis product. Everyone is different and may have a different response. Because water soluble CBD is stronger and faster-acting, pace yourself even if you are used to CBD tinctures taken the same way.
The right dosage for each person varies due to differences in body chemistry and metabolism. We strongly suggest that you start slow, one small dose at a time until you reach the level of effects that works for your body and achieves your preferred CBD experience. Water soluble CBD is much stronger than typical CBD oil, so take it slow before you know the right dose and pace for your best experience.
How Do You Know When CBD Is Working?
A common question for CBD use is how to identify its effects. Because CBD is not psychoactive, you will not feel lightheaded or “loopy”, but your body’s sensations will change. You may feel lighter, warmer, and more relaxed. With the powerful effects of water-soluble CBD elixirs, you may quickly experience a relaxing of muscles, easing of inflammation symptoms, and a lifting of your mood.
