Everyone processes cannabinoids a little differently and most people who use tinctures (CBD suspended in a carrier oil) enjoy the relatively quick onset, convenience of a flexible serving size and easy sublingual delivery. But do you know WHY we put CBD oil under our tongue?
Yes, it’s extremely efficient and effective compared to edibles and gummies but WHY?
Under your tongue are small blood vessels in the mucus membrane that quickly absorb CBD into your bloodstream, increasing the bioavailability. Bioavailability means the CBD can be absorbed and used by your body. Shah Saffron CBD contains BioPerine, a black pepper extract. That also increases bioavailability, so it helps your body absorb CBD faster and last longer, so you’re getting a whole lot more bang for your buck.
What’s important is to make sure you hold your Shah CBD oil under your tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing. This allows for maximum, faster absorption compared to taking edibles which have to be digested by your body before they can be absorbed into your bloodstream. CBD loses bioavailability when it goes through the digestive process due to your liver breaking it down before hitting your bloodstream.
What’s even more important is that you’re using a quality CBD oil and you’ve found a serving size that fits you. If you have Shah Saffron CBD in your hand, you’re in good shape! If your hands are empty, find your tincture here. There’s no chemicals, fillers or byproducts, we’re third-party tested and woman owned. Now for the serving size: We’ve got a road map to help get you started. Keep in mind that everyone is different and you’re looking for your optimum serving size! More is not necessarily better.
