3 Unique, Probably Surprising Ways To Use CBD

Posted on: 7 October 2021

By now, CBD has been around for a while, and most people are aware of the most common ways to use it. You can smoke it, vape it, or swallow it. These methods are all valid and rather versatile, which is probably why they're so common. However, there are plenty of other, more unique ways to use CBD that you might find surprising.

Make Hemp Tea

If you buy some natural hemp flower from your local CBD store, you can use it to brew a CBD-rich tea. Of course, there are plenty of other cannabinoids that can come from hemp, like CBG and CBN, which will also be extracted into this tea. As such, hemp tea tends to have a profound relaxing effect, which makes it really nice for use before bedtime.

Take about a gram of hemp flower, and pour around 6 ounces of nearly boiling water over it. Don't use boiling water; it is too hot and will cause some of the cannabinoids to vaporize. Let it steep for 10 minutes, strain, and enjoy. You can stir in a little honey if you prefer your tea a bit sweet.

Create a Seasoning Mix

People who cook a lot often have a house seasoning mix that they use as their go-to. For example, you might have a blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder that you use on almost everything.

Consider creating your own house seasoning mix using hemp flowers. Toast the flower in the oven for about 30 minutes at 200 degrees F. Then grind the flower up really fine, and mix it with your other favorite seasonings and spices. A little sprinkle will give your foods a nice, herbal flavor and a relaxing vibe.

Enjoy a CBD Bath

Bathing in CBD enriched water is a great way to relax while also helping to ease common skin conditions, like dry skin and acne. You can find CBD bubble baths and bath salts at some CBD stores. But if you can't find these products, try just adding a few drops of CBD oil to your bathwater, along with a type of neutral soap. The soap will help the oil become suspended in the water. You'll just want to rinse off after soaking in the mixture.

There are all sorts of fun and helpful ways to use CBD and hemp. These are still just the beginning and a few different possibilities to try. Contact a CBD shop to learn other ideas.
