In case you missed it, we're in the midst of a CBD boom. Beyond just tinctures and gummies, companies are adding cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp products, in everything from beauty products to fast food cheeseburgers.

For some people, taking CBD is part of their daily wellness routine, akin to taking a morning vitamin or medication. Others prefer to enjoy the many CBD foods out there, or soak in a CBD bath at the end of the day. There's almost an overwhelming array of options available for the CBD connoisseur. But, the question is, what's the best and most effective way to experience the effects of CBD? Well, it's tough to say.

But, even though we know these methods tend to be the most effective, some people might not like the habit of vaping or putting an oil tincture under their tongue, which would make them not want to engage with CBD at all. As a result, they might not find any benefit from the CBD product they're using. "Hence, any other form that person favoured would be better, because CBD consumption would increase in those other form factors," Weissman says. In other words: the best way to take CBD is whatever way that you could actually see yourself using it.

The tricky thing about CBD in general is that there's no published guide or clinical study that breaks down the appropriate dosage for each individual, or for various conditions, Weissman says. On top of that, everyone responds differently to different doses and supplements, so there's no telling how much you'll need and in what form. Figuring out the right CBD product for you and your needs is often a matter of experimentation.
