By far the most popular way to take CBD oil is via sublingual ingestion, which means putting it under your tongue. This is normally done via CBD oil drops or CBD oil sprays.
When dropped under your tongue, the CBD oil is quickly absorbed into your blood stream, meaning it has good good "bioavailability". Taking CBD in this quick and easy manner ensures quick acting effects that last for several hours.

CBD capsules are fast growing in popularity due to their convenience. Simply pop a tablet and let the CBD get to work.
Lots of people are used to taking tablets daily so this is a great way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine. Another plus is the absence of taste - many people do not enjoy the taste of CBD oil drops, so capsules are a great alternative that bypass your taste buds.
