What are CBD drops and what are their benefits?

Published on: 24/04/2023


Since the expansion of the legal hemp sector, more and more cannabidiol (CBD) products are available on the market. There is CBD hash, CBD oil, CBD creams, herbal teas… And then there are CBD drops.

Have you heard of them?

If you wonder what this final product is, how to use it, and its benefits, you can find out all the essential information about it by reading on.

Here’s what you should know about CBD drops.

CBD drops: what they are and how to use them

If you’ve heard of ‘CBD drops’ and are wondering what they are, it’s simple: this is not a new product, but just another way of referring to the well-known CBD Sativa oil.

As we have already made clear in other JustBob blog entries, CBD oil consists of pure cannabidiol diluted in an oil base. It is a very concentrated fluid which, to be dosed optimally, is sold in bottles with droppers, hence the name ‘CBD drops’.

CBD drops: what they are and how to use them

Depending on the purpose for which the cannabidiol oil is to be used, more or fewer drops of the product can be dispensed for a stronger or weaker effect.

For example, someone who uses CBD drops for anxiety will use less product than someone who uses it for insomnia or pain.

If CBD oil is still a completely unknown compound to you, and you wonder how to use it, there are many ways.

By dispensing a few drops of oil directly under the tongue, the active ingredient contained in the oil passes through the mucous membranes and quickly enters the bloodstream (the effects begin after 15 to 60 minutes and last up to 6 to 4 hours).

In addition to the sublingual method, the oil can also be taken with a meal or drink. In this case, it takes a little longer for the cannabidiol in the drops to take effect (30 to 90 minutes); however, it also lasts longer (6 to 8 hours).

Alternatively, the CBD drops can be taken by inhalation (this technique also generates rapid effects), or they can be applied to the skin, diluted in other oils, creams or lotions (in which case the action of the CBD takes about 15 minutes).

CBD drops: benefits

CBD drops are becoming more and more popular worldwide because numerous studies and research studies have shown that the active ingredient cannabidiol has many benefits for the human body.

Among the therapeutic properties most attributed to CBD are the following effects:

  • anxiolytic
  • analgesic;
  • anti-inflammatory;
  • neuroprotective;
  • antipsychotic;
  • immunomodulator;
  • antioxidant;
  • anti-nausea.

Generally speaking, we can say that cannabidiol, by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, has a relaxing effect on both the muscular and nervous systems.

It is why CBD oil drops are a popular remedy for those suffering from insomnia, stress, and mood swings (including pre-menstrual and menopausal), and concentration and memory problems.

Its spasmolytic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic action is used to relieve inflammation and pain (including chronic and very intense pain) caused by various reasons. CBD oil is used by those who suffer from headaches, bone and joint pain, gastrointestinal issues and by those who suffer from diseases such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, etc. Some advocate the use of CBD oil as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic.

Some claim that CBD drops help slim and keep fit. It seems that cannabidiol can reduce blood levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar, speed up the metabolism and reduce hunger. However, more research is needed.

Considering all the benefits attributed to CBD oil, many people wonder: “How many drops of CBD do you take for anxiety?” and “How many drops of CBD do you take for sleep?”.

Answering these questions is a bit complicated, as the dosage of CBD depends on the concentration of an active ingredient in the product (there is 5% CBD oil, 10% CBD oil, 25% CBD oil, etc.), the specific characteristics of each individual and the extent of the problems to be solved.

Usually, to find the proper dosage, it is advisable to start with a few drops of CBD and then increase only when necessary.

CBD drops: contraindications and side effects

CBD drops: contraindications and side effects

The advantages of using CBD drops or other products made from legal weed (such as legal hash) seem to be many. At this point, however, you are probably wondering if there are any contraindications to their use.

Indeed, one reason not to use them is an allergy or intolerance to hemp or other oils used to deliver pure CBD.

Secondly, you should consider whether you are using any medication. The action of CBD may interfere with the absorption of certain active ingredients, so it is best to seek medical advice to avoid problems.
