CBD oil

The original – and maybe – the best? CBD oil is likely the easiest to get your hands on and perhaps the simplest to use. The brand and product type will dictate how many drops or the dosage (e.g. 2ml) per day it is recommended that your take.

It is usually taken under the tongue to help absorption. This could make it somewhat difficult for some people to swallow, so if you have a sensitive palate, a different method could be better for you!

CBD oil with food

Taking your CBD oil with food can improve its bioavailability – the rate and degree that a substance is absorbed and sent to the bloodstream. What’s more, choosing to take your CBD oil when consuming certain food types can improve the bioavailability of CBD compounds even more.

Some of the best foods to eat alongside taking CBD oil is medium-chain and long-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids ‘bind’ to the cannabinoids before they reach the liver (with less CBD concentration loss), where they get metabolised instantly together – ready for your body to put to work straight away.

Studies have been conducted to test the link between fatty foods and how bioavailable CBD supplements can be. They found that eating fatty foods alongside supplementing CBD may ‘substantially increase the systemic exposure to orally administered cannabis-based medicines.

Here are some of the best foods to eat in conjunction with supplementing CBD:

  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Soybean oil
  • Fish
  • Avocado
  • Nuts
  • Eggs
  • Meat

You could easily combine some of those ingredients to make a healthy, CBD-friendly meal that helps you make the most of your supplements.

Try making a hearty guacamole with olive oil, avocado, tomatoes, onion and garlic. Or why not treat yourself to some coconut oil in your morning fruit smoothie to get your day started off right.
