Four Effective Ways to Take CBD Oil

A question we often hear at Upstate Elevator Supply Co. is: “What is the “best” way to take CBD oil?”. The short answer – there are many ways to consume CBD Oil and each delivery method has its own benefits. The four most common routes of delivery are Oral, Inhalation, Sublingual, and Topical. The best delivery method will vary based on individual lifestyle and health condition.

Do you need a high dosage of CBD to relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia or chronic pain? Or are you using CBD for general health and well-being, where a lower dosage may be sufficient? Are you comfortable with inhalation to produce rapid effects? Or do you prefer oral or sublingual methods like tincture, capsules, or edibles? Do you need the localized effect of a topical for pain, inflammation, or a skin conditions? Are you seeking focus or calm for your workout, yoga, or meditation practice?

With the federal legalization of hemp and the growing CBD market, there are a vast assortment of product options to fit any lifestyle need. For every route of delivery, it is recommended to start with a small dose of CBD (2.5-15mg) to see how your body responds before increasing the dose. As with any supplement, it is also important to consult a health care professional before consuming CBD.

Science and Our Endocannabinoid System

CBD (Cannabidiol) oil positively impacts our bodies’ Endocannabinoid System which is made up of complex, biological network of cell receptors that modulate practically every part of our body’s system. It’s these cell receptors that oversee bodily processes such as emotion, pain, appetite, digestion, sleep, and our bodily sensations.

Extracted from hemp, a sub-species of the Cannabis sativa plant, CBD oil is non-psychoactive and doesn’t make you high like marijuana with higher levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC produces the psychoactive-classic-marijuana- “high”. When our endocannabinoid system operates at its optimum capacity it reaches a condition called homeostasis. Homeostasis is achieved when CBD oil is introduced to our system – cannabinoids can repair weakened cells and enhance healthy ones.

Upstate Elevator Supply Co. offers a wide range of CBD products and a variety of ways to consume hemp oil to fit your particular lifestyle. The four most common delivery methods for CBD oil are sublingual, inhalation, oral, and topical.

Sublingual (CBD Tinctures and CBD Oral Spray Mists)

The sublingual method uses an oral mist or a dropper to apply the hemp oil carrier directly under the tongue. This form is highly “bioavailable” meaning the effects are fast-acting and effective.

Upstate’s Tinctures come in a variety of flavors and dosages, and are simple to use in beverages or applied directly under the tongue: 1000mg Full Spectrum Natural CBD MCT Oil, 1000mg THC Free CBD MCT Oil, 500mg Full Spectrum Lemon CBD MCT Oil, and 500mg Full Spectrum Peppermint CBD MCT Oil.

Upstate’s 100mg CBD Oral Spray Mists are available in three flavors: Spearmint & Eucalyptus, Sweet Pink Grapefruit, and Earl Grey with Honey & Bergamot. Potent and super fast-acting CBD Oral Spray Mist are made with organic grain alcohol, 100% natural flavorings and 99% pure pharmaceutical grade crystalline CBD derived from American grown, non GMO hemp.




Oral (CBD Capsules, Edibles & Beverages)

Oral delivery methods include capsules and edibles (foods and drinks that are infused with CBD) and are commonly used for anxiety, stress, pain, and insomnia. When ingested into the body, hemp oil is absorbed into the bloodstream via the stomach lining (which will take approximately one hour). Oral methods are an excellent option for those who want to be discrete and want an easy way to take CBD.

CBD Edibles are not only convenient but also fun, like Upstate’s sweet and delicious All Natural Gummies. The gummies are made with organic ingredients and come in a variety of sizes and formulation: 100mg (10 qty), 150mg (5 qty), 500mg (50 qty) and 750mg (25 qty).

Upstate’s 30mg and 50mg Full Spectrum Capsules are easy to dose and contain only two pure ingredients: Organic coconut oil and Full spectrum hemp extract. CBD Capsules are ideal for people who desire potent, “entourage effect” benefits with the convenience of a capsule.




Topicals & Transdermal (Botanical + CBD Skincare and CBD Patches)

Topicals are externally applied CBD-infused lotions, creams, roll-ons and patches that penetrate cannabinoids through the skin layers. This method works well for localized relief of muscle tension, soreness, skin conditions, and inflammation. Depending on dosage the effects can last up to five hours. CBD has natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities that protect the skin.

Inhalation (Full Spectrum CBD Vape Cartridges)

When inhaled, CBD is absorbed into the lungs and enters the bloodstream almost instantly. Inhalation provides the fastest relief to the body, which can be crucial for chronic pain and anxiety sufferers. A vape pen loaded with a CBD-filled cartridge heats up the concentrated hemp oil and is ready to be inhaled.
