4 Ways To Take Your BROWN GIRL jane
Updated: Jul 20, 2020
Part of the magic of CBD is that not only can it treat many common ailments (stress, anxiety, insomnia, acne...and so much more), but it can also be consumed in several different ways according to what best suits your individual needs and lifestyle.
At BROWN GIRL jane, we worked hard to design a collection that can be integrated into your wellness and beauty routine in an easy and realistic way - because CBD shouldn't be complicated.
While dosage is an important factor in finding your optimal results, each method of consumption delivers CBD slightly differently to your body. We therefore designed our products to be primarily used in four simple ways: Sublingually (applied under the tongue), Topically (applied directly to the skin), Mixed Into Foods (ingested immediately), and used as a Lubricant.
Let’s briefly dive into more on each option below!
This is one of the more popular ways to use CBD – and great for beginners!
We created our BROWN GIRL jane tinctures with all natural, vegan and organically grown ingredients that are not only efficient, but also taste really good (I seriously love the calming and delicious taste of the peppermint oil in our Rest Tincture).
When tinctures are used under the tongue, the CBD is absorbed more directly into the bloodstream after bypassing the metabolic system. This mode is faster than merely ingesting it as the blood rich vessels under the tongue (and gums and cheeks) enables it to be spread quickly throughout the body.
For best use, just fill the tincture dropper to your desired amount, drop the oil directly under your tongue, hold for 30 seconds (or even for up to a minute for peak efficiency) and swallow.
CBD applied directly to your skin is also simple and easy.
It increases the ability of the applied amount to directly reach your targeted area of pain or concern and unlike sublingual use, it does not enter your bloodstream.
This form of application is great for treating any sore muscles, body aches and combating inflammation (Heal Whipped Body Butter I’m looking at you!). Also, topical application is a wonderful way to address your beauty needs. With more antioxidants than those found in both Vitamin C and D, our GLOW Luminous Facial Serum has literally saved my skin during this quarantine!
For best use, gently massage your desired amount into your targeted spot, sit back and wait for the magic to happen. For acute treatments, topical use can also be paired with an oral method in order to gain extended therapeutic benefits.
Mixed Into Foods
When CBD is ingested, it passes through the digestive tract, absorbed into the bloodstream and then distributed throughout your body. This mode has the slowest travel time to reach whatever is being targeted but can provide the longest period of activity. It can also be great as a long-term supplementation to your wellness routine.
Food affects the body’s ability to absorb CBD and is best consumed on a full stomach after a meal with a healthy amount of fat to increase the amount of CBD that reaches the blood stream.
For best use, incorporate into your mid-day snack, coffee or smoothie!
Let’s face it, a good lubricant ain’t never hurt nobody!
When CBD is applied locally to your yoni, the capillary rich mucosal tissue will have a heightened localized effect. After application, some of it passes through the digestive tract first, absorbs into the bloodstream and then spread throughout the body. This mode has varying absorption times as it is effected by things such as your vaginal pH and age.
For best use, apply desired amount in/on your lady parts and enjoy.
What’s your favorite way to use your BROWN GIRL jane? Don’t be afraid to experiment and remember it’s not a one-size-fits all approach. Start by asking yourself what your individual needs are (emotional support, inflammation, etc.) and focus on those areas in order to help determine what works best for you. And as always, don’t be afraid to reach out to us should you need any guidance. We got you!
