Ingesting CBD causes different effects than inhaling it. Firstly, the relaxing effects will take longer to manifest themselves, as the cannabinoids have to reach the digestive system before reaching the bloodstream. When you inhale CBD through a vaporizer, bong or electronic cigarette, the effects are almost instantaneous. When you ingest CBD orally, you have to wait at least 30 minutes, sometimes 1 hour and even more to see the first effects appear. That said, even if the effects take longer to appear, they can stay longer. This is extremely interesting for people who suffer from chronic pain and are looking for a natural solution to reduce pain throughout the day. If you’re suffering from a seizure or spike in pain, and you need quick relief, you can choose to inhale CBD or take it sublingually. But if you need soothing effects that are long-lasting, you should consider incorporating CBD into your diet.
Note also that you can adjust this dosage according to your desires, your feeling and the percentage of CBD in your product. For example, some oils have a CBD content of about 10%, while some flowers can exceed 20% CBD. Do not hesitate to adjust the quantity according to the CBD content of your products.
In a more general way, CBD is known for its relaxing, soothing, anti-stress and anti-pain properties. The consumption of CBD allows to :
Below these amounts, you may not feel any effect. Beyond that, you risk spoiling the taste of your cakes. There is no need to use a lot to feel powerful effects. As previously explained, eating CBD through a high-fat diet is already enough to feel more intense effects than average. If it’s your first time cooking with CBD, we advise you to choose the lowest dose, which is 10 ml of oil or 1 gram of CBD for a whole cake. If you already have some experience with CBD, you can opt for the higher dosage, namely 20 ml of oil or 2 grams of CBD flower or resin.
Furthermore, scientific studies have recently shown that when CBD is ingested during a high-fat meal, its bioavailability can be increased by a factor of 4 or 5. In other words, the effects of CBD are maximized when you eat it, and even more so if your meal is fatty. By eating a CBD cake, you will be able to enjoy its full potential!
