When we say ‘CBD’ you’d probably say ‘oil’, right? Very logical, if you realize CBD oil is the best known consumption method for Cannabidiol (CBD). Though surprisingly, it’s not directly the easiest, most effective or cheapest way of using the plant's substance on a daily basis. Want to know why it’s still widely used, and what benefits the alternatives hold? These are the easiest, cheapest and most effective ways you can use CBD at home or on the go:
Full Spectrum CBD oil
Although it’s not the easiest way of using the cannabinoid, full-spectrum hemp oil still gets the job done. There’s just something about the right combination of cannabinoids and terpenes. Which make our signature 8% CBD oil and high dosed 25% Premium Gold CBD oil some of the most effective oils on the market.
The downside to this method is that it’s not exactly consumer-friendly, though. Considering the hassle with pipettes, needing a mirror to get the correct dose and inevitable at some point: dirty bottles. That is why we offer the option to include a spray-head when you order CBD oil. An easy and low-cost solution to make regular CBD oil more consumer friendly.
Unfortunately though, the thick structure of CBD oil makes it very hard for the available Cannabidiol to be absorbed by the body. As the fatty / lipid substance is too thick to easily penetrate the mouth’s mucous membrane. Resulting in the loss of 88-94% of the available CBD through the body’s digestive tract. So while the composition of our basic hemp oil is one of the most effective ones available today - it’s not the most cost-effective consumption method. This has led us to try and discover a way to maximize the absorption (or in other words: bioavailability) of this product. To benefit from the unique chemical composition of our CBD oil, while no CBD is lost in the process.
Water soluble CBDactive+
The best way we discovered to increase the bioavailability of full-spectrum CBD, is to make it water-soluble. And although it took a long and intensive process, we’re proud to say we’ve managed to produce a product living up to our high quality standards: CBDactive+. A full-spectrum water soluble CBD product with a complete, 100% bioavailability. Because not only did we manage to make the CBD and other cannabinoid molecules small enough to enter the body through the mouth’s tissue - CBDactive+ makes it possible for the CBD to be absorbed by the digestive system, too.
CBDactive+’s unprecedented absorption rate guarantees the ultimate CBD experience. Though this also has to do with all other ingredients it contains, besides CBD. Considering the product contains cannabinoids as CBC, CBG and CBN too - next to a variety of terpenes and other active ingredients. Because of this, it’s safe to say CBDactive+ provides the best possible entourage effect. This water-soluble CBD is easily consumed by spraying it directly into the mouth or by mixing it with water or tea, for example.
CBD Topical Patches
Though if we’re talking about ease, in search for a practical way of using CBD, there’s one product we have to mention: CBD Topical Patches. Because let’s be honest, it doesn’t get easier than sticking a patch onto a hairless spot on the body (or the affected area) and letting your body do the work. Moreover, it appears that transdermal administration of Cannabidiol (through the skin), is an extremely effective way of getting your daily dose of cannabinoids. And the best part is, you won’t have to think about taking your next dose while you’re out and about. Thanks to the slow, time-released nature of the active ingredients in the CBD patch.

However, we must say that the effectiveness of CBD supplements vary per consumer and ailment. As every product has its own and unique way of affecting the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) - they all provide different effects in the end. This means that if regular CBD oil is already helpful for you; it doesn’t necessarily mean that an essentially more effective product like CBDactive+ is going to help you more. Or the other way around. Finding the right CBD product for your needs, still remains a process of trial and error.
