3 Unique Ways to Take CBD

By Rachel Garland

You probably know that you can
take CBD oil with a tincture…

But did you know there are many different ways to enjoy the life enhancing benefits of Cannabidiol?

As a matter of fact, from CBD patches to naval care, there’s no shortage of products depending on your needs. 

Just check out these 3 unique ways to take CBD. 

1.) CBD Suppositories 

Although unconventional, CBD suppositories provide powerful and localized relief.

Research regarding how cannabinoids inserted anally or vaginally are absorbed by our bodies is still developing.


Suppositories are not a new practice.

This method of delivery has a long history in the medical world. 

In fact, it’s particularly effective for those suffering from middle and lower body issues along with digestive disorders where swallowing a pill may not be properly absorbed or possible. 

Men and women are using CBD suppositories to find relief from conditions such as:

  • Sciatica
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • IBS
  • Endometriosis
  • Restless Leg Syndrome

Certainly no medical claims can be made.

Yet, the growing number of personal testimonials and anecdotal evidence is promising, especially for those suffering from conditions where other methods of delivery are not nearly as effective as suppositories.

2.) CBD Belly Button Care 

Did you know using CBD on your belly button offers BIG benefits for your body?

While this method of ingestion may sound a bit strange…

People have been putting oil on their belly buttons to alleviate many conditions for years. 

In fact, it is a common practice in Ayurvedic medicine referred to as the Petochi Method.  

The idea is that behind our umbilical cords is the Petochi gland, which is connected with thousands of organs and tissues throughout our bodies.

Even though our umbilical cords are cut at birth, this gland remains.

What does this have to do with CBD?

Applying CBD oil to your belly button may stimulate your Petochi gland, helping cannabinoids be absorbed throughout your entire body. 

This can be a particularly effective choice for those struggling with ingesting Cannabidiol.

While this method might be considered unusual, the results are telling.

3.) CBD Patches 

Discover long lasting relief with soothing CBD patches.

These portable options are easy to take on the go while targeting tough spots directly.

Simply apply the CBD patch directly to your skin. 

As your body starts warming up, the Cannabidiol is slowly released throughout your body.

This is what makes patches unique compared to lotions or salves, for example.

Unlike topicals, transdermal CBD patches are absorbed into your bloodstream.

Typically you will feel the effects within twenty minutes.

For maximum absorption, cleanse your skin before applying.

Patches are ideal for alleviating a wide range of health issues, including mental and physical conditions.

That being said:

Not all CBD patches are created equally.

Pay close attention to bioavailability along with the milligrams of Cannabidiol per patch.

And no matter which option you choose, remember there is no one size fits all when it comes to CBD.

By better understanding the options available along with your personal preferences, you’re ready to find the best options for your needs.
