The Best Ways to Consume CBD

There are a myriad of ways to start incorporating CBD into your day to day. From inhaling your CBD to throwing a couple of drops into your morning smoothie, you can get pretty creative with your CBD intake.

You may be new to the whole CBD thing, or you may be looking for a way to spice up your routine. The CBD product list can be so long it’s almost dizzying. Keep reading to learn some of our favorite ways to consume CBD - plus a breakdown of different CBD delivery methods


CBD Tinctures

CBD oil is a staple! A tincture is a liquid cannabis extract that is often paired with a carrier oil. Top-quality brands will use an organic carrier oil to complement a full-spectrum hemp extract. 

Tinctures usually feature a single-serving dropper that makes dosing easy. This type of CBD is most popular for those who don’t want to take pills or capsules. The best way to consume CBD oil is either placing a dropperful directly under your tongue or blending it in your favorite smoothie… or mocktail! 

How to Use CBD Oil?

Let’s start with the basics and explain how to take CBD oil orally. When taking CBD oil directly in your mouth, make sure to hold the liquid under your tongue for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. The area under your tongue has tons of salivary glands; waiting 30 seconds gives your body time to absorb the CBD oil.

Taking CBD oil directly under your tongue isn’t your only option- you can get fancy. Try adding CBD in your morning cup of joe or power smoothie. This is where the Toast Barista comes into play! Specially designed as a spray bottle, our Everyday strength full spectrum hemp extract is just a spritz away.


CBD Pills

CBD pills and capsules are a consistent way to add CBD into your busy routine- all you have to do is pop one into your mouth and swallow. CBD pills and capsules offer a consistent, pre-measured dose. Plus, CBD pills are perfect for on the go as they are discrete and convenient - don’t worry about a glass bottle in your bag! 

CBD Pre-Rolls

Have you ever heard of smoking CBD? CBD Pre-rolls are the quickest way to feel the effects of CBD. This is due to their high bioavailability rate, meaning CBD pre-rolls enter your system faster than, say, ingesting an edible. Choose a CBD pre-roll if you are looking for instant relief. Plus, taking a CBD smoke break can be the perfect self-care ritual!

CBD Pre-Rolls sound like your speed? The Toast Emerald is our premium Full-Spectrum Hemp pre-roll (what we like to call a Slice). Packed with 100mg of CBD and less than 0.3% THC, Toast Emerald will make you feel your best without getting you high.



CBD Vape Oil

Like CBD pre-rolls, CBD vape oil can be another quick way to feel CBD’s effects. Used in a vaporizer, CBD vape oil is a mix of CBD oil and a carrier liquid that serves as a thinning agent. The device heats up the solution to a point where the CBD becomes a vapor, making it ready for inhalation. 

The benefit of vaping CBD is that it has a high bioavailability rate as it is inhaled directly into the lungs and absorbed into the bloodstream. Other methods require time for the stomach to digest. Another added benefit: vape oil is available in a variety of flavors, giving you more choice in the experience.   


CBD Topical

Level up your lotion. You can apply CBD oil topically as your skin is the largest organ that absorbs CBD molecules. When you use CBD topically, you will have a more localized effect. CBD comes in balms and lotions for a luxurious experience. CBD topicals provide targeted comfort. People have noticed using CBD topically helped with flexibility, mobility, and soothing sore muscles. 


CBD Patches

CBD patches are an innovative way to deliver CBD into your system. CBD patches are very similar to how a nicotine or birth control patch works. They contain a measured dose of cannabidiol molecules infused with a gel and oil. The patch’s high concentration of CBD in combination with the patch technology helps the cannabinoid penetrate your body. 

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles are an ingestible form of cannabis! Edibles can be a great option for those who prefer not to smoke their CBD. Plus, CBD edibles are fun - they can come in gummies, cookies, and chocolate! 

CBD Chocolates

CBD gummies and edibles are a tasty way to get your CBD - especially when there is chocolate involved. FINE & RAW and Toast teamed up to create a quality crafted chocolate with a perfect blend of CBD. The cacao is sourced directly from organic farmers in Ghana and Ecuador and then blended with Toast's Hemp Extract. 

Start with 20mg and work your way up to 100mg. Through a small-batch artisanal process, we didn’t know midnight chocolate could get any better. 



Quality CBD

Once you finally decide on what CBD product to invest in, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:

Invest in Full-Spectrum

Amplify the benefits of CBD by investing in a full-spectrum CBD product. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all the naturally-occurring compounds, including low traces of THC. Full-spectrum hemp oil contains less than 0.3% THC. The combination of all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to create something we refer to as the entourage effect. The entourage effect refers to how all of hemp's most natural ingredients work together to create a noticeably euphoric effect - just as nature intended it.

It is important to know the difference in all hemp products to determine what best serves your desired outcome! 

Look For High Standards

Ensure your product is third-party tested, so you know the ingredients’ credibility, ensuring high-quality flower! Keep an eye out for companies that require high-quality and manufacturing processes. This includes understanding where the hemp is sourced from and what standards they grow by. When top-quality CBD brands provide certificates of analysis, this is a great indicator of honesty and transparency!
