Looking for new ways to use CBD oil? Well…..You’ve come to the right place.
Without a doubt, CBD oil drops are one of the most popular ways to use CBD. I personally absolutely love using it in recipes or just dropping a few in my mouth.
But we are overlooking some really fun and beneficial ways we can utilize CBD.
CBD lubricants utilize the healing, anti-inflammatory properties of CBD to increase blood flow and circulation. This ideally means heightened sensitivity, relief from dryness and tension, and stronger orgasms.
Please note: If you plan to use CBD lube while using latex protection, you must use a CBD lubricant that is not oil-based. Do not use any that are sold as massage oil either. Using any oil-based lubrication can degrade or break condoms and other forms of contraceptive barriers, which can put you and your partner at risk for STIs or an unintended pregnancy. Consider yourself warned.

CBD is a potent antioxidant. Why is that important for your skin?
Antioxidants reduce damage caused by free radicals, which can cause the skin to age more quickly.
According to Project CBD, the cannabinoid may even be more potent than vitamins C and E.
Adding a few drops of CBD oil to your favorite nighttime eye cream or beauty routine can boost the antioxidant potential of your normal skin care regimen. This provides an extra layer of protection against extrinsic aging, which contributes to fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

There is some evidence to suggest that CBD Oil can be beneficial for acne and other skin conditions. Some people apply CBD topically to the breakouts themselves, while others take it orally for long-term prevention
The cannabinoid potentially reduces acne blemishes, which are caused by inflammation, bacterial infection, and the overproduction of sebum, which is the natural oil that moisturizes the skin.

While many consume CBD orally, the benefits of topical CBD should not be overlooked. In general, topical cannabis can be used to relieve pain and inflammation in anything from a twisted ankle, to burns, and minor abrasions.
Unless the oil is infused into a transdermal patch, CBD oil placed directly on the skin does not enter the bloodstream.
So, higher doses of the oil can be used to alleviate pain and inflammation in the skin.
While it is not recommended to use CBD directly on an open wound (though it is an antibiotic), CBD oil can be used on bruises, bug bites, and other areas of soreness.
A little CBD can go a long way. A microdose is a tiny, daily or semi-daily dose. Microdosing CBD is easiest with CBD cannabis oil.
Microdosing may have some immediate benefits….but just like many vitamin supplements, CBD builds up in the body over time.
Since the cannabinoid is stored in fat, consistent doses of CBD may be able to deliver more meaningful health changes as it accumulates in your system.
Hoping for a quick and easy way to calm down?
Research has shown that doses as low as 2.5, 5, and 10 milligrams of CBD can successfully ease symptoms of anxiety. CBD oil may be particularly good to take at night to help you sleep.
Essentially, placing a few drops of a CBD oil under your tongue after a particularly stressful day is an easy way to protect the body from stress-related damage.
