CBD paste is becoming increasingly popular in the UK as more people learn about the potential health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and discover how potent and versatile the strongest CBD paste form is.
What is CBD Paste?
CBD paste is simply the extract from organically grown hemp plants – it comes out as a sticky black or dark green paste containing the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and plant goodness. Whole plant CBD paste is as close to nature as possible with nothing added or taken away.
CBD paste is a concentrated form of CBD that can be consumed in many different ways. You can take it sublingually, add it to food or drinks, or even use it topically.
You can also use CBD paste to make your own CBD oil as explained below. This makes CBD paste a versatile product that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of their preferred method of taking CBD.
How is it made?
The strongest CBD paste is made by extracting cannabinoids and other plant materials from the hemp plant using CO2 extraction in a lab. By simply blasting the plant material with high pressure CO2, the paste is released from the membranes and is captured, mixed and tested. The sticky paste is then placed in plastic syringes for easy consumption.
How To Use CBD Paste?
CBD paste is most commonly taken sublingually, which means placing it under the tongue and letting it dissolve into the bloodstream. This allows for quick and easy absorption of CBD into the body.
If you’ve never used cannabidiol before, starting with a low dose is always best. If you are using Bristol CBD’s 30% CBD paste then we recommend starting with an amount of paste equivalent to half a grain of rice. If you are a more seasoned user then you may be using a long grain of rice amount of CBD paste.
Place the desired amount of paste onto your finger and then rub it into the inside of your cheek or under your tongue. Hold the paste in your mouth for at least 60 seconds before swallowing. This allows time for the mucous membranes in your mouth to absorb the cannabidiol before it enters your digestive system.
You can also add CBD paste to hot food or drinks. Simply stir in a small amount of paste until it’s fully dissolved, then enjoy! Adding CBD paste to food or drinks is a great way to make your favourite recipes even healthier.
You can also apply CBD paste topically by applying it directly to the skin. But be careful as the strongest CBD paste is sticky and dark in colour so it can stain your clothing. It is probably better to use Bristol CBD’s skin and muscle rub or CBD Sports Spray for topical CBD use.
CBD paste is a versatile product that can be enjoyed in many different ways. Experiment and find the method that works best for you!
The advantages of CBD paste
Some people prefer to consume CBD paste because they believe it is more effective than other forms of CBD, such as CBD oil. CBD paste is extremely potent, so you only need a small amount to feel the full effects of CBD. Here at Bristol CBD we offer CBD pastes of 23% and 30% CBD respectively whereas our strongest CBD oils are 20% CBD. This is because the stronger the whole plant CBD oil is the more viscous it becomes. Anything above 20% CBD and it becomes too viscous to use as an oil. CBD paste however is dispensed using a plastic CBD paste syringe so the CBD paste can be thick and viscous, just as nature intended.
But the main advantage of using CBD paste, in our opinion, is that it is so STICKY! We know that we have to hold CBD in our mouths for as long as possible so that it gets absorbed in to the bloodstream but often, when using CBD oils, we can forget to hold the oil under our tongue and swallow it too soon.
With CBD paste, the sticky paste actually sticks to the gums and is very hard to swallow. This means that more of the CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes are absorbed into the body. Essentially by using CBD paste you get more CBD for less money. Although CBD paste syringes are more expensive, they last a lot longer.
Another advantage of CBD paste is that you can use it to make your own 5% CBD oil. Simply squeeze out 1.66 grams of 30% CBD paste into a small saucepan and gently melt it on a hob being careful not to heat it to the point of evaporation. CBD paste melts at about 65 degrees centigrade so very little heat is needed to melt the paste. Once the paste has melted simply stir in 8.34 grams of the carrier oil of your choice into the paste, mixing well. We recommend using organic hemp seed oil or organic MCT oil as the carrier oil. Allow your oil / paste mix to cool down and then pour it into an empty 10ml dropper bottle. Voila!
