There are so many different ways to use CBD. Which application is right for you?

Five ways to take CBD

CBD comes in a variety of different forms, each tailored to different use cases and benefits. The most common ways to take CBD are capsules, soaps, topicals, tinctures and vaporizers.


Finding your ideal CBD Dosage

The amount of CBD that you should take really depends on what you’re using it for. Each body is different, and reacts differently to CBD. It comes down to how your body metabolizes CBD, so your dosage may be different from your friends’. That said, we recommend that you start with small amounts and gradually work your way up, until you find your body’s ideal dosage. And remember, always seek the advice of your physician before you start taking CBD, especially if you take other medication. 


How long does it take for CBD's to work?

The symptoms you are targeting, the method, and the dosage all play a role in how long it’ll take for CBD to work it’s magic. 

From our full lineup of CBD products, Wildflower’s CBD vaporizers and CBD tinctures offer the fastest method of application. 

For a more consistent but slower application, you may want to look at CBD soaps and topicals. Our CBD Cool Stick and CBD Healing Stick, for instance, have a relatively slow and uniform absorption, ensuring that the skin remains moisturized and receives CBD over a longer period of time. 

CBD Capsules will take effect within an hour or so, depending on when and how much you ate during your last meal. But for optimal effect, you’ll want to use capsules for anywhere between 30 to 60 days to build up the CBD within your system.



A convenient, oral method of taking CBD

CBD Capsules usually take about an hour to start working on your body. It’s a quick, convenient and effective way to incorporate CBD into your daily wellness routine. Capsules can help in a variety of cases, and have been used to promote overall health, relieve occasional joint and muscle discomfort, provide a sense of calming, and even support healthy brain function.

Our CBD Capsules are made with the highest quality, pure whole-plant extract, and hemp seed oil rich in amino acids and omega 3 & 6. The capsules themselves are clear vegan vegetable capsules, which makes them a versatile choice for anyone looking to use CBD. We recommend a dosage of 1-2 capsules daily with water.



Applied directly to the skin, offering more even effects

Because topicals are applied directly to the skin, they have a more uniform absorption than other forms of CBD. This means it offers more even effects over time, and can be used to target things like muscle, joint and back pain.

Our CBD topicals are formulated with powerful plant-based ingredients combined with broad spectrum CBD to give cooling and soothing sensations to your body. For the best effects, we suggest applying the topical after a hot bath or shower, so it can be better absorbed. You’ll want to rub well on the desired area, 3 to 4 times daily or as needed—just don’t apply it to wounds,  or damaged or irritated skin.



An easy way of introducing CBD to your skin-care routine

Soaps are a simple way to introduce regular and consistent dosage of CBD to your daily routine. Some use CBD soaps to keep their skin looking young, or to combat conditions like acne. And it’s easy to use; you can apply CBD soaps just like any other soap product. 

Specifically, our all natural CBD Soap is made using the highest quality whole plant extracts and coconut oil. It’s a gentle but powerful face and body cleanser that lathers into a rich and soothing foam. It’s potentially one of the more pleasant ways of improving your overall skin health without dryness.



An efficient and popular way of taking CBD

Vaping is one of the fastest ways to feel the effects of CBD in your body, thanks to the high absorption rate in your lungs. The effects can last between 1 to 3 hours. People who use vaporizers often say they’re looking for something to help with anxiety and stress.

Our vapes come in two varieties:

Our disposable CBD Vaporizers provide fast, safe and effective delivery of cannabinoids. These pens are so smart and easy to use, we needed to get a patent on the technology. Each CBD vaporizer is packed with pure CBD oil and combined with up to 20 different essential oils for added benefit. Use it anywhere vaping is permitted, anytime.

We also have rechargeable CBD vaporizers, which are designed to be convenient, discreet and effective while minimizing environmental impact. We’ve put a lot of effort to make the most innovative rechargeable vaporizer, in the hopes that it will enhance your vaping experience.



One of the strongest CBD products available

Not only are tinctures one of the most potent CBD remedies, but they can be taken in small doses without the need to smoke it. Tinctures are quick working, created through a steeping process, much like making tea. Wildflower CBD Tinctures, for example, are formulated with the highest concentration of whole plant CBD and fortified with milk thistle—a non-hemp cannabinoid with powerful healing properties*. 

Our CBD Tinctures come flavored with delicious and all natural flavors that mask the strong smell and taste of CBD, making it easy to keep under your tongue longer for maximum absorption.

To use a tincture, use the built-in dropper to apply a few drops under your tongue, leave it for about 30 seconds, then swallow. Alternatively, You can use tinctures in beverages, just be aware of what kind of flavours you’re mixing.
