Under-the-tongue drops, like vaporization methods, allow quick absorption of CBD. With this method, the CBD is transported via the mucous membranes of the mouth where nutrients and other compounds are absorbed very quickly. The time lag of other ingestion methods is largely eliminated. And the advantage is two-fold because any CBD not absorbed quickly in the mouth is soon uptaken by the rest of the digestive tract.
A sublingual dose of 100 milligrams will create noticeable effects, and it will do so quickly. For an elixir with a 10% CBD concentration, that means that just three drops will deliver benefits. Health providers and nutritional consultants often recommend a 100-milligram dose, and ingestible products will usually be proportioned accordingly.
Transdermal products are applied to the skin. The fat-soluble nature of cannabinoids allows the transmission of CBD, so simple creams and balms are effective delivery mechanisms. When carried by a properly formulated balm, cannabinoids are absorbed by the body with great ease. Sublingual transmission is based on exactly the same principle of fat-solubility.
The effects of cannabis on the skin are the object of numerous testimonies and personal experiences which often arrive at the same conclusion: ‘it’s a miraculous!’
The antiseptic, antifungal, bactericidal and anti-inflammatory qualities of cannabinoids may help address a variety of skin conditions, too. The most common of these conditions are psoriasis, chronic urticaria, chronic dermatitis, acne, and eczema.
For all these conditions, the development of targeted cannabinoid-based treatments improves the skin's cellular life cycle and healthy regeneration of epidermal tissues. There is considerable hope for research in the field of cannabinoids for skin use. Today, thanks to cannabinoids, some diseases that were once thought incurable are being reconsidered by researchers in a new light.
