Why place CBD Oil under your tongue?

CBD oil tintures

So, you’re wondering why you should place CBD oil under your tongue? This is a very good question! Many medicines are taken under the tongue, or ‘sublingual’ as the technical term is, and the shortest answer is because the complex make up of the tongue as an organ and the surrounding membranes will allow any medicine or health-giving addition to be absorbed far quicker. Quite often, less quantity is needed as well.

However, and more importantly for some, people can struggle to take pills of any description for pain relief, anxiety, sleeplessness etc. CBD Oil is a great way to get faster relief from your troubles. The mere thought of swallowing a tablet is enough to put you off taking them, and certainly enough to cause a ‘gag reaction’. Others may have an illness that prevents them from swallowing pills easily.

So, exactly why does it work faster?

It’s to do with the absorption of the CBD Oil. The underside of your tongue is composed of mucous membranes and hundreds of capillaries (small blood vessels). Placing CBD oil under your tongue enables the CBD Oil to be absorbed into the bloodstream at a much faster rate. It also ‘bypasses’ the digestive system, cutting down on the harsh gastric process that occurs when food is digested.

CBD Oil should not affect your digestive system at all, but faster absorption means a more rapid process to obtain the benefits of the oil and calm any anxiety or other nervous disorders that you may be suffering from. Taking it this way will also relieve any aches and pains quicker than by swallowing a pill. It really is a beneficial way of taking CBD Oil.

How long should it be held for?

Calm Recovery recommend 60-90 seconds to hold their CBD Oil – this way absorption should be at its most effective. However, everyone is different, and it can work faster on varying individuals, just like any remedial substance. You may have to try different lengths of time, but try the 60-90 second method first until you find out if you need a little longer, or shorter timespan.

It’s also a great idea to ‘chill out’ once you have placed it under your tongue for the first time. Don’t hunch up your shoulders, try not to panic (there is no need!), just stay happy and calm – 60 seconds is not a long time to feel the consequent calming effect when it begins to absorb.

How long does it really take to work?

The same applies here – different people have different speeds of reaction. For most it can be expected to take less than 30 minutes, but for others it can be a longer process. Placing CBD oil under your tongue is far more effective than swallowing it or any other CBD product, however tasty it may be. The most important thing to realise it that a greater quantity of the properties of the oil are absorbed, with as much as 35% of it reaching your bloodstream, as opposed to only around 4-5%, if it has to pass through the liver before reaching the bloodstream for dispersal. Other foodstuffs such as fat, will delay any process through the liver and consequently reduce the effectiveness of CBD.

Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is one of the most effective on the market, and we would recommend the sublingual method every time for maximum benefit and faster results.

Worried about the taste?

Worry not! Calm Recoverys’ Calm Drops™ come in a handy 500ml drop dispenser for ease of use – but best of all, our premium CBD Oil Tincture has a delicate orange flavour to make it all much more palatable to those who struggle with taste. Placing CBD oil under your tongue is so much easier to take and administer wherever you are in a crowded room, your car, or on public transport. Discreet and easy to use in seconds.

If you are still a little concerned, why not try our CBD Gummies? A delicious fruit flavoured sweet to pop in your mouth, straight from your handbag or pocket. Chewing on these will release the flavours and the beneficial effects, and you can control how long you leave them in your mouth for absorption, before swallowing.

Look out for our ‘bumper offer’ of both gummies and drops (link) for the best of all.

More Of The UK Population Are Turning To CBD Oil To Treat Anxiety

cbd oil for anxiety

Are people using CBD for anxiety?

Yes, it’s true – people are finding comfort and relief from chronic anxiety by using a few drops of CBD Oil. Sales have all but doubled between 2018/2019, and currently show no signs of slowing down. London has the highest popularity rating of the whole of the UK.
CBD is now used in many health and beauty products throughout the world and celebrity endorsements abound. You could arguably say it’s ‘trendy’, but there is far more to CBD and CBD Oil than anyone ever imagined. Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the well known celebs who include it in their daily health routine.

CBD oil is recommended for treating various illnesses both bodily and mentally. Anxiety is rife in the UK due to the pace of life that we all lead in current times. However, there is a word of warning – not all CBD products are gold standard, but we are proud to say that Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is of premium quality.

Aches and pains are one thing, but anxiety can be just as crippling to our mental health, as can depression and other stress-related illnesses. A high quality oil can take the edge off neurological problems such as agitation, nervousness, anxiety and depression, but it is not a cure for other disorders such as Alzheimers or dementia – there have been no proven research studies long term into this much bandied around suggestion. It may alleviate associated symptoms, but it is certainly not a cure.

How do you know that Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is safe?

We use the finest and most tested method of extraction called Co2, to ensure our CBD Oil is a top quality product. This method of extraction carries a gold standard rating. Once extracted from the plant, it is as pure as possible, containing only 0.0005% of THC which is the psychoactive component – in fact, oils for sale in the UK must have a THC content of less than 0.01% – you can see that our product is considerably safer.

Our CBD Oil is certified lab tested for content and quality, with our reassurance that every batch is scrutinised thoroughly and reports issued to us. If you need any further information or advice, we will be happy to help.

Worried about the taste?

If you have never tried CBD Oil before, fear not! The carrier oil used in Calm Recovery CBD Oil is known as MCT, which is both clear and odourless. The only taste you will experience is that of our added orange flavour, which is pleasant on the tastebuds, unlike some other oils on the market. When held under the tongue for a minute, it provides a really pleasant customer experience, which we feel is important to both you and us.
Even if you don’t want to hold the oil under your tongue, you could always try our delicious CBD Gummies, which provide a sweet treat at any time of the day. Easy to carry around in your pocket or bag, this pack of multi-flavoured sweets (link to gummies product page) could be the answer for you. Chewy and yummy, and shaped like cute bears! Pop into your mouth to ease your anxiety whenever you feel the need.

Can CBD Oil really help my anxiety?

Looking at case studies, many people swear that by using CBD Oil you can get relief from nervous disorders. Like any other products, research and clinical trials are perpetually ongoing, but so far this claim has been validated by thousands and thousands of happy customers who have undergone serious anxiety and depression.

Please remember that CBD Oil can also be taken as an aid to restful sleep. Anxiety is often accentuated in people with poor sleeping patterns, so it’s certainly worth a try.
CBD Oil has a multitude of uses, not just as a relief from anxiety.

One of our Brand Ambassadors is Luther Clay, a fast, up and coming young boxer who has a record now of 13-1 successful fights. Luther is sure that using CBD Oil in his regime aids his rest and recovery period. This is surely an indictement as to how good our oil is. Other sports stars such as Megan Rapinoe (Women’s Football Player of the Year) agrees with the rest and recovery aspect after a long hard match.

If you have any doubts, talk to your GP or medical practitioner. The majority are now fully aware of the beneficial properties of CBD Oil.
