How Do You Take CBD Oil?



Reading time: 3 minutes

Anyone that has taken an interest in the field of holistic medicines will be well aware of the rise in popularity that CBD oils have experienced in recent years. 

In case you were unaware, although CBD is a cannabinoid, it does not exhibit any intoxicating effects when taken and is derived from what is most commonly known as industrial hemp. 

There are various ways that CBD oil can be taken, and is typically up to the preference of the individual. If you are thinking of adding CBD into your life, allow Beliebis UK’s experts to shed some light on this matter.

Why Take CBD Oil?

Studies are ongoing into the various potential benefits which can be enjoyed by taking CBD oil on a regular basis, but early studies and anecdotal reports in their thousands are showing wide-ranging potential therapeutic uses from treating anxiety, addiction and depression to pain relief.  

It is important to note that these products contain only trace levels or no detectable THC at all, therefore, you will not become ‘high’ or intoxicated in any way!

Oral Drops

If you were to consider which is the most popular way in which to ingest CBD, the conclusion that you would most likely arrive at is via oral drops. 

Two of the main reasons why people adopt this method is its ease of use and relatively high-bio-availability of the CBD, in comparison with some of the other alternatives listed below. Provided that you have your bottle and dropper all you need to do is apply the desired amount of CBD oil directly underneath the tongue. 

The saliva glands under the tongue subsequently allow the CBD to enter your system and begin to take effect approximately 10 to 20 minutes later and is known as the sublingual method.


One of the newest and fastest-growing ways to take CBD in the world right now is via CBD gummies. CBD gummies are available in numerous varieties from the classic gummy bear to cola bottles and everything else in between. 

Individuals that love CBD are delighted that they now have the opportunity to purchase these products that not only taste great but are a completely discrete and convenient way to take CBD. 

The strength of CBD within these sweets can vary; however, one thing remains constant - how they disguise the natural, earthy taste of CBD oil. Unfortunately, there is a drawback to this application method; the length of time required to enjoy the effects. 

The ingestion method takes around twice as long for the CBD to pass into your system compared to sublingual drops. However, we think the taste and convenience of these exciting new products are well worth the wait!

Inhalation – Via Vaping

To vape, a liquid mixture containing CBD and often chemical flavourings is drawn over a heated element inside a hand-held device, which causes the liquid to vaporise so it can be inhaled by the user. 

Due to absorption through the lungs and this method’s high bio-availability, you may experience the effects almost immediately. However, the impact may not last as long as drops or CBD capsules, for example.  

Beliebis UK currently does not produce or sell CBD e-liquids, however, as more positive research into the benefits as an aid to stopping smoking and other addictive substances, this is something we are considering!


Although you may not realise it, your skin is capable of absorbing CBD oil. These CBD oil products have also begun to gain in popularity recently and include topical creams, balms, bath bombs and oils. 

Although this method may take the longest to begin to take effect, around 45 minutes, the various topicals can be a great way to target specific muscles or areas of the skin in need of a little TLC.
