CBD has become part of our lives. We can eat it, bathe in it, apply it to our skin, inhale it, and even sleep on it. This versatility is possible because of the many ways you can enjoy CBD: you can ingest it, use it sublingually by placing a few drops under your tongue, apply it topically onto your skin, or inhale it.
Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Some people choose to inhale CBD with vape pens and other equipment because the bioavailability of CBD—i.e. the amount of CBD that reaches your bloodstream—is higher for vaping than for any of the other ways. However, vaping is associated in the minds of many with various health risks and many have concerns over the ingredients contained in vaping CBD oils. Also, the fact that vaping CBD is fast-acting, also means that the effects wear off faster.
Here at Synchronicity, we believe that we should enhance people’s health. We have developed a wide range of products, which have been tested by third-party labs for their purity. So focused are we on producing the best possible Full-Spectrum CBD oil for our products, that we grow locally in Colorado.
We only use Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil because it contains all the beneficial botanical compounds of Hemp. This way, our products achieve high bioavailability and effectiveness while bypassing the potential risks associated with vaping.
CBD for Inflammation
Research suggests that CBD may have anti-inflammatory qualities. If so, then it may help our bodies keep at bay occasional inflammations that cause pain and discomfort. The CBD found in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil may help our endocannabinoid system maintain the body’s natural balance.
CBD for Pain
As a 2015 study concluded, “cannabinoids are safe, modestly effective analgesics that provide a reasonable therapeutic option in the management of chronic non-cancer pain.” CBD may be particularly effective with occasional pain related to inflammation.
CBD for Mental Wellbeing
Studies suggest that CBD may help support our mood. It interacts with our brain’s neurotransmitters, particularly dopamine and serotonin, and receptors such as 5Ht1A.
Low levels of dopamine are linked with low concentration and attention span. As for serotonin, low levels have been associated with depression, low motivation, and increased appetite.
Through CBD’s interactions with our neurotransmitters, it may help our brain to better utilize the serotonin and dopamine found in our body.
How Safe Is Vaping?
How Do CBD Vapes Work?
Many CBD manufacturers have developed CBD products that are specifically targeted for vaping. These are called CBD vape juice, CBD vaping oil, or e-juice.
The way vaping works is by heating the CBD liquid in a vape pen. The vaping pen is equipped with a battery that heats a coil. When the hot coil gets in contact with the CBD vaping oil, it turns it into vapor, which can then be inhaled.
What Are the Dangers of Vaping CBD?
CBD vaping is a novel way to consume CBD and manufacturers are constantly experimenting with new flavors and vaping oils. As a result, CBD vape juices contain several other ingredients alongside CBD.
In the summer of 2019, several US hospitals admitted people who were suffering from shortness of breath and symptoms that looked like lung failure. All these patients had been vaping e-cigarettes or marijuana, and 17% of them reported having vaped a CBD product. By the fall of that year, over 1,200 people had developed lung illnesses and twenty-six people had died.
While experts are still unsure as to what caused these lung injuries, it emerged that several CBD vaping juices had contained vitamin E acetate, used to dilute the carrier oil. While vitamin E acetate can safely be ingested, it can injure the lung when inhaled.
Vaping oils are now free of vitamin E acetate. However, there are other ingredients that also cause concern.
Some solvents used in such vaping juices include vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. These ingredients have been characterized as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA when ingested. However, the FDA has not investigated how these solvents react when heated and vaporized.
There are concerns that these solvents may cause unwanted chemical reactions when heated. As there are no FDA-approved substances that can be included in vaping products, CBD vaping products should be used with caution.
Until we know more about the potentially harmful side effects of CBD vaping, our team at Synchronicity has chosen to stay away from developing such products.
Thankfully, there are many other ways you can enjoy your CBD besides vaping.
You Can Ingest CBD
Whether it’s CBD edibles, pills, capsules, or oils, plenty of CBD products are available for ingestion.
When ingested, the CBD found in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil travels through the digestive tract before being metabolized by the liver. It then enters the bloodstream, where it starts having an effect. Although this method offers lower bioavailability than inhaling, CBD stays in the body longer, therefore its effects last longer as well.
CBD capsules are very easy to use and discreet. You can take them early in the morning to gently wake up. Or you can ingest them before going to bed, to relax your body and mind.
You Can Take Your CBD Sublingually
Sublingual consumption of medicines has been known for years. Our tongue is equipped with tongue capillaries, which are directly connected with our bloodstream. When we take a medicine or CBD tincture sublingually, we place it for a minute under our tongue to let it get absorbed by these capillaries.
People who want their CBD to take effect quickly appreciate CBD tinctures. Sublingual use bypasses the digestive tract and increases bioavailability. The CBD will be available to your body fast—between 15 minutes and half an hour—and will be more efficient. Its effects will also last longer than CBD vaping.
You Can Apply CBD to Your Skin
Another way to take in the benefits of CBD is through the skin, by using CBD topicals.
Thanks to CBD’s anti-inflammatory and moisturizing qualities, it is widely used in topical creams and skincare products. CBD may help soothe sensitive skin, thus warding off skin conditions related to inflammation, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
CBD lotions, butters, and oils may help maintain the skin’s elasticity and smoothness. However, that’s not all. After strenuous exercise or a demanding workout, your muscles and joints may need a botanical remedy to assist with the resulting pain and discomfort. CBD balms and salves are here to promote muscle health.
Choose Quality CBD Products
The method of consumption is certainly important: choose a way that fits your lifestyle and your body’s demands.
Once you have decided how you want to take your CBD, it is imperative that you do your research and find the most excellent CBD product.
When the CBD you are taking is pure, potent, and well-tested, it immediately has a greater impact on your body and mind. Subpar CBD products will not achieve the same results.
Synchronicity only uses Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil for its products. Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil contains all the botanical wholesomeness of Hemp: cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV, CBDA, and THCV, as well as the aromatic oils of terpenes, flavonoids, minerals, and vitamins.
All parts of Hemp are meant to work in tandem and boost each other’s effectiveness. They combine their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-microbial properties to create a superior result. Rather than isolating CBD, we produce Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products that are teeming with cannabinoids and holistic Hemp compounds.
Instead of risking your lung health, choose Synchronicity products and achieve high bioavailability and optimal cannabinoid effectiveness.
