What is CBD?

CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in cannabis. It can have medicinal effects such as pain relief but is not psychoactive the way THC is. As one of the most studied cannabinoids, CBD has been shown to have relaxing and calming properties, and some people use it to relieve stress and anxiety.

CBD is also thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. For example, it may help to reduce the pain and swelling associated with arthritis.

Some people use CBD oil for chronic pain management; others use it for mental health. This article explores how to make CBD oral spray and its therapeutic effects on various conditions.

Different types of CBD 

There are many types of CBD oils to choose from, each offering different benefits and serving various needs. Here’s an overview:

  • Full-spectrum oils

Full-spectrum CBD oil is made from the entire hemp plant rather than isolating the compound in a lab. The term “full spectrum” refers to the use of multiple cannabinoids in combination with other complementary herbs or essential oils. This gives the product a more complex range of effects than CBD isolate alone. These full-spectrum oils often contain terpenes (essential oil compounds) that may offer additional benefits such as anti-inflammatory properties or pain relief.

  • Isolate

CBD isolate is another popular form of CBD oil that contains only one compound: cannabidiol. Isolates are pure crystalline CBD in their most concentrated form. To make an isolate, pure CBD is isolated from other cannabinoids (such as CBN and CBG), terpenes, and plant material using a solvent extraction process. This isolates the CBD from everything else in the plant to create a 100% pure cannabidiol product. Isolates are generally used by consumers who are ultra-sensitive to any side effects that come along with full-spectrum oils and tinctures.

  • Broad-spectrum

Broad-spectrum CBD oils contain both CBD and other cannabinoids. This means they contain terpenes and other beneficial components that help the oil perform its functions. Broad-spectrum CBD is often used for its therapeutic effects, but it can also be used to treat a range of conditions, from glaucoma to psoriasis.

What is CBD spray

CBD spray is a convenient way to take CBD, as it can be applied directly to the skin. Not only does this make it easy to take with you wherever you go, but it also allows for quick absorption of the product into your bloodstream.

It is typically made by mixing the oil or extract with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) and then spraying it onto your skin. This method is often used in conjunction with other products such as lotions or ointments.

CBD sprays are commonly utilized by those who don’t want to eat or drink CBD tinctures or edibles. They can also help people who have trouble swallowing or keeping medication down due to nausea or vomiting.

How to use CBD spray

Topically

Apply the CBD spray directly to your skin by spraying it onto your hands first, then rubbing it into the affected areas of the body.  This allows you to avoid getting any product in your eyes or mouth.  If you want to apply it directly to a wound or sore spot, soak a cotton ball with the CBD spray and apply it directly where needed.

It’s often recommended to apply CBD topically rather than taking it orally. This can be more effective because cannabinoids interact with receptors in the skin, muscles, and nerve endings. They bind to these receptors and cause changes in the body by influencing how sensitive they are to outside stimuli:

The CB1 receptor responds to THC (the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis) and some other compounds found in cannabis. The CB2 receptor responds to CBD (cannabidiol), one of the most common cannabinoids found in hemp products.

CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system, which consists of CB1 and CB2 receptors found throughout the body. These receptors are located in your brain, organs, and immune cells. They respond to chemical messengers known as cannabinoids, which originate mainly from plant sources like hemp plants.

The CBD molecule is a cannabinoid that interacts with these receptors. It has many potential health benefits because it can alter how sensitive they are to outside stimuli:

  • It can increase or decrease sensitivity (depending on which receptor it binds with).
  • It can activate or deactivate certain pathways in our bodies (like those involved in inflammation).
  • It can change how our bodies respond to pain.

Sublingually 

Applying CBD spray sublingually is one of the most popular ways to use CBD. This form of administration is preferred by many people because it is fast-acting and it reaches the bloodstream quickly.

The spray form of CBD can be used by placing a few drops under the tongue and holding them there for a few seconds before swallowing. This method allows you to get the benefits of CBD without ingesting it orally, which has been shown to increase bioavailability by 60%. This is because the CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the blood vessels under the tongue.

CBD spray benefits

There are many benefits of CBD oil, but more and more people are turning to CBD sprays.

The main reason for this is that they’re easy to use and fast-acting. You can take them anywhere with you so that you can get relief from pain or anxiety anytime.

Here are some of the top benefits of CBD spray:

Treating Anxiety

Anxiety is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. While there are several ways to treat this disorder, CBD can be used as an alternative to traditional medications such as Xanax and Prozac.

Treating Chronic Pain

According to research, CBD oil was more successful than prescription treatments like opioids for treating chronic pain. It had no side effects or hazards compared to conventional medications, which have harsh adverse effects, including liver damage, when taken at high doses for long periods.

Insomnia

CBD can help you sleep because it activates the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates sleep cycles. CBD interacts with CB1 receptors in the brain that help regulate sleeping patterns. The ECS also regulates moods and emotions, so CBD helps you feel relaxed even under stress.

Mood Lifter

CBD is also known for its mood-boosting properties. It can improve your mood and help you get through stressful situations without feeling anxious or depressed. This effect makes it ideal for people suffering from anxiety or depression-related disorders.

Anti-inflammation

In addition to relieving pain, CBD has also been shown to help with inflammation throughout the body. It works by activating CB2 receptors in our bodies, which help reduce inflammation at the source. This makes CBD an excellent choice for people who suffer from autoimmune disorders or chronic pain conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia.

Why Use CBD Oil Spray?

The CBD oil spray is a great option for those who want to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the mess and inconvenience of using a dropper or capsule. Here are a few reasons why you should consider using CBD oil spray instead of other forms of this supplement:

Less Mess

CBD oil comes in a bottle that needs to be opened and squeezed out onto your hand or a piece of paper towel before applying it to your skin. This can make things messy if you have too much on your hands or too little in your bottle. With CBD spray, all you have to do is press down on the nozzle and hold it until it stops spraying out. This makes the application much easier and less messy than using CBD oil directly from a bottle.

Higher Concentration

The most obvious reason to use CBD oil spray is that it has a higher concentration of CBD than other forms of CBD. The average concentration for hemp oil is around 20%, while the highest quality oils can have up to 35%. This means you need less oil per dose, and the effects are more potent.

More Convenient

CBD oil spray is easy and convenient to use, especially for those who don’t want to take capsules or tinctures. The spray can be used directly in the mouth or added to food and beverages. The latter is especially useful when you’re on the go and have no time to spare. In addition, you don’t need any tools like syringes or droppers when using CBD oil sprays because they come with a special dispenser that doesn’t require any manual operation from the user. Just press on the bottle, then release it to get your dose. 

Direct Absorption

One of the biggest benefits of using CBD oil spray is its ability to deliver direct absorption into the bloodstream. This means that you don’t have to wait for your body to digest food or drink before absorbing CBD. Direct absorption also allows you to target specific body areas with ease, which can be especially helpful when treating pain, inflammation, and other ailments.

Taste

Another benefit of using CBD oil spray over other forms like gummies or tinctures is that it’s easy to take orally because there’s no taste associated with using it under your tongue. So if the taste is a concern for you, this might be an option worth considering.

How to Make CBD Oral Spray

CBD oral sprays are a great alternative to other methods of ingestion and without any further delay, here is a recipe for how to make them!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water (boiling)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or MCT oil
  • 1 tbsp organic hemp seeds or CBD powder (also called hemp extract)
  • Optional: 1 tsp cinnamon, vanilla extract, citric acid, or mint extract.
  • Spray bottle
  • Cheesecloth

Get the Right Supplies

You will need some supplies before making your own CBD oral spray. Your first step is to gather everything you need in one place so that it’s easy to find when you need it. Here are some supplies you may want to have on hand:

Cannabidiol tincture or oil: This is what will be used as the base for your oral spray. Choose a high-quality product with a high concentration of CBD oil (at least 250 mg). Avoid products that contain vegetable glycerin, artificial flavors, or colors because they can impact the taste and appearance of your final product.

Syringe: Buy a plastic syringe that has been pre-sterilized so that it doesn’t harbor any harmful bacteria or germs that could cause infections. You may also want to get some alcohol wipes to clean off the nozzle before each use.

The Step-by-Step Process

Step 1: Prepare the oils

Heat the coconut oil or MCT oil in a large pot until it’s just warm to the touch (not hot). Add the hemp seeds, CBD powder, or oil and stir until combined.

Step 2: Steep and strain

Cover with a lid and let sit for 15 minutes. Strain through cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer into another container. You can use it immediately or store it in a glass jar in the fridge for two weeks.

Step 3: Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle.

Add 1/4 cup of water to your hemp extract tincture and shake well. Add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, vanilla, or mint extract if you like (optional). Then add 1 tbsp of organic virgin coconut oil or MCT oil, mix again, and put into an empty spray bottle.
