Administer Under The Tongue.

In order for CBD oil to work quickly, it needs to be adequately absorbed into the body.

It is important to know the best way to consume CBD so that it  efficiently absorbs into the bloodstream, is through the sublingual method. Once in the bloodstream, CBD attaches itself to the receptors in our endocannabinoid  system (ECS) and activates in our bodies.

You can also Eat or Drink it.

The most common way to consume CBD oil is orally, directly into the mouth. But it’s been shown that eating and drinking products with CBD oil may not be the ultimate solutions when looking for fast absorption.

Here’s Why.

When CBD is ingested orally, it is absorbed and broken down by the digestive

system. From the stomach, it goes to the liver, where it is further metabolized

by enzymes before passing on what remains of the compounds into the bloodstream.

The phenomenon of CBD being lost to the liver and gut is known as the first pass effect. So, while ingesting CBD orally may be the easiest method, it isn’t necessarily the most efficient. If CBD oil is held under the tongue for 30 to 60 seconds before being

swallowed, the mucus membranes in the mouth absorb its compounds. This

sublingual method allows CBD to completely bypass the digestive system and

liver metabolism, so the compounds can avoid being broken down by enzymes and reach the bloodstream more quickly. Like all CBD oil, Plant Power was designed to be taken under the tongue, as we believe it will be the most effective way to reach quick optimal results.
