The liquid form of CBD, known as CBD drops, contains strong dosage of cannabidiol or CBD content. It is extracted by soaking hemp flowers in alcohol and then it is cooked over low flame heat. Alcohol can alternatively be replaced by vinegar and glycerin. This portion is then mixed with oil that tastes sweet because this mixture has a bitter taste. This final concoction is not psychoactive which implies that it does not make one hallucinate.
How to use?
This drop is of high potency and highly concentrated. It is enough to take very small doses. High dosages do not cause side effects but often are of no use also. It is taken along with food or beverages or sometimes taken under the tongue. This method is known as taking sublingually (literally under the tongue) and is considered to be the best way according to researchers since the body absorbs it faster. While consumed by this method, make sure to hold it under the tongue for at least one minute to allow the body to absorb. It takes around 15 minutes to start working on the body.
