Are you planning to venture into the vast world of CBD or popularly known as cannabidiol? Or, you have already tried and want to experiment further? Whatever your reasons are, you must try CBD sprays. Well, you may be thinking …Ummm…isn’t it the same as putting CBD oil in your mouth or using CBD tinctures? After all, you are just putting different types of CBDs in your mouth, so it should not make much difference. Well, the answer is both ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ ‘Yes’ because you are ingesting CBD only, except here, you are using a spray, and ‘no’ because spray works a little bit differently than oil or tinctures. CBD sprays are different from CBD oils or tinctures and work differently, depending on how your body reacts to them. You have to look for the right kind of brand, composition, and production method. Let’s find out more about CBD sprays and how they work.
All you need to know about CBD oral sprays
Before reading about CBD oral sprays, newbies need to understand all about CBD first. CBD or cannabidiol is a popular ingredient found in cannabis or marijuana or hemp or any other cannabis family plant. This ingredient, or popularly known as cannabinoid, can cure several health conditions. Chronic pain, mental health issues, indigestions, inflammation, and epilepsy, to name a few. CBD is only one of the 500 different cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in cannabis or hemp plants.
While some cannabinoids can be harmful, CBD is really good. Various studies have proven that CBD could potentially cure critical health-related problems, including acute and chronic diseases, mental health issues, digestion, among others. Unlike its cousin cannabinoid, Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not cause the so-called ‘high’, after which people generally feel intoxicated.
CBD oral sprays typically contain nothing but CBD, mostly the flavored ones. So if you don’t like regular CBD oils, which may release ‘weedish’ smell, flavored CBD sprays are just for you. You can directly spray them in your mouth, or take them via the nose, or use them as topical. They are easy to carry around; just put them in your pocket and use them whenever and wherever you want. CBD sprays contain CBD tincture and ethanol alcohol, which can be sprayed directly in the mouth. In just a few seconds, CBD enters your bloodstream, and the ‘magic work’ starts!
Why should you use CBD spray?
There are many benefits of using CBD sprays. First among those is it’s easy to carry and use. Secondly, like other CBD-based products such as CBD oils, tinctures, gummies, and eatables, CBD sprays works well against major health issues. It has been seen that CBD sprays can be used to treat severe forms of epilepsy. The US FDA has already approved a medication called ‘Epidiolex’ after controlled clinical trials showed its high safety against the disease.
Though there’s limited research on this, CBD has also proven to be effective against drug addiction. Anecdotal experiences also suggest that people using heroin or other drug substances may be able to reduce cravings for it. If used properly, meaning the right dose and disciplined regimen, one can completely get out of the addiction cycle. It has also been proven to be helpful against post-traumatic stress disorder and insomnia. CBD is also the most prominent way to manage pain, including chronic pain.
CBD oil interacts with all kinds of pain types in the same way. Those with acute pain who have undergone surgery or childbirth or some minor injury can use CBD oil to get instant relief. A study conducted by the American Society of Anesthesiologists said 75 percent of respondents who used CBD oil or sprays for pain relief got the desired result without any side-effects.
CBD also numbs the effects of nausea and vomiting that’s caused by chemotherapy in cancer patients. Besides, CBD can also help reduce anxiety.
How to use CBD spray?
CBD sprays can be used in different ways. Some of the most effective ways of using them can be a topical application, nasal intake, and taking spray orally. While the topical application can be done on the skin to cure physical pain or some kind of a wound, you can also take CBD via the nose. To administer the CBD product via nose, insert a CBD spray bottle into either of the nostrils and press the bottle to release the spray while keeping the other nostril closed. Most people take CBD sprays orally via the mouth, because it’s easy and most effective that way. While pressing the bottle, just aim for the tongue and throat. CBD reaches the bloodstream faster if ingested via tongue and starts working immediately. For the right dosage, consult your health expert or read the product description carefully.

The company must also clarify its production process, CBD potency and all ingredients used in the making of the product. You should also look for customer reviews before buying a product from a company.
