• CBD Isolates: These 99% pure CBD crystals dissolve rapidly under the tongue, sending large quantities of CBD into the bloodstream, though they do not carry the benefits of a full-spectrum oil.
That said, experimenting with the vast array of CBD products in each category serves as the best way to find your preferred method. However, to help you along the way, this article covers all of the information you need to know to get started.
The Cibdol range offers multiple oral CBD formulas. Our products feature varying strengths of CBD, and many of them infuse additional nutrients that add unique elements to each blend.
Sublingual (under the tongue) CBD
• CBD Oil: Cibdol CBD oil is available in concentrations. Crafted from naturally grown EU hemp using state-of-the-art CO₂ extraction technology, this high-quality oil delivers an unadulterated dose of CBD and terpenes. CBD oil can come with varying carriers, such as olive oil, MCT oil or hemp oil.
Taking CBD orally sends the cannabinoid through the digestive tract and liver before it enters the bloodstream. In the liver—an important metabolic organ—cannabidiol undergoes the first-pass effect and gets partially broken down.
Each route of administration provides different benefits and outcomes. Below, discover the most common ways to take CBD, the best products available, and everything else you need to know about each method.
This lengthy route means it will take slightly longer to feel the effects—up to two hours. Plus, not all of the CBD you swallow will remain intact or become bioavailable. You’ll absorb around 20% of the cannabinoid in each dose (or more with liposomal CBD). However, the effects of oral CBD tend to last longer than other methods, making it a good trade-off.
First there’s the practical benefits. How often do you skip your morning coffee? If the answer is “ never!” . then it could be a good idea to safeguard your CBD routine by taking your caffeine and cannabinoids all at once.
Another plus: CBD may counteract the jitters that can come with high caffeine intake. This is thought to be due to its calming effect on adenosine A2A receptors. [ 3 ] Granted, we’ll be the first to admit that biochemistry probably won’t be on your mind when CBD-infused coffee is making your workday a breeze.
Most CBD oils are meant to be taken sublingually – a fancy way of saying ‘held under the tongue’. Research indicates that CBD works best when held sublingually for 30-60 seconds.

And it’s not just us saying that. History agrees! A lot of people don’t know this, but cannabis tinctures were actually a staple of western medicine throughout the 1800s and early 1900s. British doctor William O’Shaughnessy declared the cannabis tincture an “anticonvulsant of the greatest value,” and over a hundred US pharmaceutical companies listed cannabis or hemp tinctures in the drug catalogs.

Coffee may also increase your CBD oil’s bioavailability. How? Research has shown time and time again that CBD is absorbed better alongside a fatty meal. [ 4 ] Putting two and two together, could the same be said of a fatty drink? Better put an extra tablespoon of grass-fed butter in your coffee just to be sure.
