MAKE YOUR OWN SUPER CBD SMOOTHIES | We explain why you can’t use traditional CBD oil in drink

CBD infused super-green smoothie

There are many ways to take your CBD oil, sublingually (under your tongue), topically, vaping, capsules…and another option is to add it to your juice or smoothie to give it an extra health boost. It’s really important to mention straight away that ingesting traditional CBD oil is not the way to go. This is why CBD oil is administered sublingually, so the enzymes in your mouth can break through the carrying oil and the mucous membrane can then absorb the CBD compounds. The longer you hold it the more you absorb.

So what kind of CBD to use in drinks? The answer… water soluble CBD.

The cannabis-extracted CBD oil goes through a special process of reducing the compounds into teeny weeny pieces (extremely scientific)  that are so small they can easily be absorbed through your intestinal lining. Traditional CBD extract in oil form is a big blob (very scientific). When this blob of oil enters your stomach it’s too large to pass through your gut lining and enter systemic circulation without being broken down by enzymes and passed along the the liver for processing. It can often be stored as fat cells for the body to use later on, which isn’t always a bad thing and explains why regular use of CBD is essential. But not everyone can process fats (some kidney conditions for expample inhibit the breakdown of fats).

Our 4% and 6% CBD Tonic’s are water soluble and perfect adding to smoothies and juices

Water soluble CBD is the only choice when ingestion is the preferred method. Our 4% and 6% water soluble Tonic’s can be sprayed directly in the mouth and swallowed immediately or added to drink or food. Because of the way the water soluble CBD is absorbed, the effects can be up to 10x more effective than the oil equivalent because your body is able to absorb 100% of the cannabinoids. All of our water soluble CBD contains curcumin, lemonene, pinene and other terpenes that have anti-inflammatory properties so there’s even more reasons to add this super-CBD Tonic to your daily smoothie.

With water soluble CBD your body is able to absorb 100% of the cannabinoids

Everyone is unique and the fact remains that everyone is in a different place and will react differently to their CBD dosage. As dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase at a comfortable level until you experience the desired result. Start with 1-2 doses a day. This may well be the optimum amount for maintaining the regulation of your immune, nervous and hormone systems. But if you feel you need more, up it slowly over time until you reach the desired effect.
