CBD oil under tongue

by Edward J. Ross

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the numerous chemical compounds (cannabinoids) found in marijuana plant or cannabis. CBD has proven to be a common natural remedy for a range of prevalent ailments. Unlike other cannabinoids found in cannabis like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, making it the most appealing option for relieving pain and other ailments without a psychoactive effect like marijuana or some other pharmaceutical drugs.

CBD oil is extracted from hemp paste or the cannabis plant, made from the plant's flowers and leaves. After extraction, it's then diluted with a carrier oil like hemp seed or coconut oil. Researchers have shown that this oil's content has several health gains, including reducing anxiety and depression, relieving pain and inflammation, curing skin inflammation and diseases, relieving Cancer-related symptoms, neurological disorder, and epilepsy.

Like other pharmaceutical drugs, you can administer CBD oil with so many methods, including the sublingual method (placing it under your tongue), swallowing it, robbing it on your skin, inhaling it, etc. Before we look at the best and most effective method, let's quickly take a look at some of its benefits to human health.

Benefits of CBD

Research has shown that CBD products have a lot of health gains. Below are some of these benefits:

  • Reduces Anxiety and Depression

Mental health disorder issues like anxiety and depression always have a devastating impact on one's health and well-being. According to WHO (World Health Organization), the single largest contributor to global disability is depression.

Most pharmaceutical drugs available for treating anxiety and depression usually have side effects like agitation, drowsiness, headache, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction. Other drugs, such as benzodiazepines, may lead to substance abuse due to their addictive nature.

Researchers have obtained many promising results on CBD oil's effect on depression and anxiety. A study conducted in Brazil had 57 men who received the oil before taking part in a public speaking test. The men reported feeling less discomfort and anxiety.    

  • Relieves Pain and Inflammation

The human body contains a unique system refers to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for regulating and managing several functions in the body, including appetite, immune system response, sleep, and pain. According to research, CBD oil can help reduce chronic pain by affecting the ECS's receptor activities.

A small study carried out in "2020 randomized, placebo-control trial" shows that CBD oil can significantly reduce sharp pain, intense pain, itching sensations, and cold. All 29 participants admitted getting relief from their pain and never reported any side effects.

Other research has revealed that CBD oil can significantly decrease inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory properties.      

  • Skin inflammation or Disease

Today, many people suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, itchy skin, skin cancer, and pain.

There are several factors and curses of skin conditions, including bacteria, genes, overproduction of sebum, underlying inflammation, etc.

Research has shown that CBD oil contains specific anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, ant-cancer, and anti-itching properties. This result has proven that CBD oil can help treat most of these skin conditions and give your skin a better look.

  • Relieve Cancer related symptoms

Cancer-related symptoms or side effects symptoms resulting from cancer treatment like nausea, pain, and vomiting can be treated with CBD oil as discovered by researchers. A study conducted on 177 people showed that Cancer related pain could be alleviated when CBD oil is combined with THC, as participants who received the combination of the two cannabinoids experienced significant relief in pain compared to others who only received THC.

CBD oil can also decrease the common chemotherapy-related side effects of cancer treatment, such as vomiting and chemotherapy-induced nausea. Most of the drugs available for these symptoms have, over the years, proved ineffective. A study carried out on 16 people that underwent chemotherapy showed that a combination of THC and CBD oil administered through mouth spray decreased vomiting and chemotherapy-induced nausea than standard treatment alone.

Some animal studies and test-tubes have also shown that CBD oil may contain some anti-cancer properties. However, animal studies and test-tube can only suggest what could work in a human.      

  • Neurological disorder and epilepsy

Researchers believed that CBD oil might provide many benefits to people with neurological disorders due to its ability to act on the brain signaling systems, including the endocannabinoid system. Though CBD studies in this area are relatively new, several of them have shown promising results.

Studies have proven that an oral spray of a combination of CBD and THC (Sativex) is the safest and effective way of reducing muscle rigidity, spasticity, and spasms in humans. A study conducted saw 75% of 276 people experience decreased spasms when administered Sativex.

A study also carried out on 214 people suffering severe epilepsy with 0.9 to 2.3g of CBD oil per body weight reduced their seizure by 37%. A study also discovered that CBD oil could significantly reduce seizure activities of complex childhood epilepsy disorder and Dravet syndrome in children compared to a placebo.

Why do I need to take CBD oil under my tongue?

Today, there are various options of CBD products available, including drops, capsules, gummies, and sprays. As stated earlier, you can take CBD oil either by swallowing it, robbing it on your skin, inhaling it, placing it under your tongue, or applying it rectally. Among the various methods of taking CBD oil, the most effective and safest is the "under tongue" method, also known as the sublingual method.

Most people are unaware of the best way to administer CBD oil when they buy it. Most doctors and experts' instructions always highlight and advise people to use CBD sublingually, which is because of this method's greater absorption rate.

It only takes 25 to 30 minutes for CBD oil to work when it is placed under the tongue, whereas CBD oil will have to go through the process of digestion when used or consumed orally. Generally, it takes about 1 to 3 hours for CBD oil taken orally to take effect.

When you used the sublingual method or drop it under your tongue, it can get to your bloodstream faster and work better since there is a high tendency to retain its bioavailability.

How to take CBD under the tongue

Taking CBD oil under the tongue is very simple. All you need to do is place a drop or spray of it under your tongue, try to leave it under the tongue for a couple of seconds, which could be like 60 seconds. After this period of seconds, your gums and membrane under the tongue should have absorbed the oil. Feel free to leave any leftover for a couple of minutes.

According to experts and doctors, the goal of taking CBD oil is to get it to your endocannabinoid system and bloodstream as quickly as possible. To correctly use CBD oil under your tongue, follow the steps below.

1.      You need a CBD dissolved in a carrier oil

The first step in taking CBD oil under your tongue is to make it available for use. In other words, before you can take CBD oil under your tongue, you will need a tincture or a dissolved CBD in a carrier oil like coconut or sesame oil. These tinctures usually come in the form of spray or drops. Tinctures that come in the form of drops are typically used under the tongue. While sprays could either be used inside the cheeks or under the tongue.

2.      Do not eat right before or immediately after using CBD oil

Eating right before or immediately after taking CBD oil can have a harmful effect or disrupt how the bloodstream absorbs it. Usually, you have to wait for 30 to 35 minutes before eating after taking CBD oil or wait for the same time after eating before taking it under your tongue. The reason is that doctors and experts have it that it taken sublingually starts taking effect after 30 minutes.

3.      Put the recommended drops under the tongue

You can put the number of drops recommended by your doctor or specified in the product instruction. When taking the CBD oil, make sure you measure the appropriate dosage recommended by your doctor or product instruction and put it under your tongue. A mirror can be of great help here to place the drops in the right place.

4.      Leave the drops under the tongue for at most 2 minutes before swallowing

Leaving it under your tongue for 2 minutes will give it the needed time to penetrate your bloodstream, and you will begin to feel the effects. However, one may experience a buildup of saliva inside the mouth during this period, but holding on will undoubtedly give a better result.

5.       Expect feeling the effect in 20 minutes to half an hour

You will start feeling the effects of the after about 20 minutes to half an hour of administering it correctly under your tongue. This feeling may stay for up to 8 hours.

How long should I hold CBD under my tongue?

According to some product brands and doctors recommend 2 minutes is the optimal time for the CBD oil to be absorbed by your gums and under the tongue membrane.  To some people, 2 minutes is much. But the instruction from doctors and other experts says 2 minutes is not too much.

One good about keeping it under the tongue for that much is that most people who do not like the taste will not feel the taste when they keep it that long under their tongue before swallowing it. At this time, the taste is no longer as high as it was initially – the taste is much more faded.

Conclusion

Though CBD oil is generally considered safe, medications like blood thinners can curse it to bring about unwanted side effects such as dry mouth, diarrhea, drowsiness, and loss of appetite when used together because of its poor interaction with some medications.

To correctly and safely take CBD products, you need to seek your doctor's advice on using them and possibly giving him a full list of your current medications.

Also, tell the doctor if you are a nursing mother or pregnant, then the doctor can give you the dosage you must take.
