However, the most common and medically preferred ways of using CBD oil which dmagazine has also used for the consumers are:
Taking CBD oil sublingually- This is one of the easiest and straightforward ways to consume therapeutic amounts of CBD.

And this process requires a slow consumption of putting the oil under the tongue for a few minutes and then swallowing it.
Through vaping CBD Vape-oil- Vaping has become so prevalent and such a socially and widely accepted and used behavior which no one can predict about using CBD through it. It can be one of the most discreet ways to consume therapeutic amounts of CBD.
Vaping or smoking high-CBD strains- It is also another way of consuming CBD amounts through vaping however, here one needs to consume CBD-strains. It has also no specific smell or recognition which makes it a comfortable way to consume therapeutic amounts of CBD.
