Beginners Guide: How do you take CBD?

Whether you have decided to try CBD for better sleep and recovery or to improve your scores on the course the first decision is how to take it.

Hemp products and carrier fluids don’t have the best natural taste so we’ve flavoured our oils in mint and the gummies in orange, blackcurrent and strawberry flavour. If you’re a vaper we have a variety of flavours including blueberry, strawberry or mango and our topicals have a soothing eucalyptus smell.


There are 4 main options for consuming CBD:

  • Eating it (capsules and gummies)
  • Sublingually (oils and spray) which means placing drops or spraying CBD under your tongue to be absorbed through saliva
  • Vaping (e-liquid) which means CBD is consumed through the surface of the lungs
  • Topically (creams and salves) which means rubbing CBD onto your skin

Rate of effect and bioavailability:

The difference in the methods of application are the time it takes for the CBD to have an effect and the amount of CBD that reaches your bloodstream (bioavailability)

  • CBD edibles will take around 45 minutes to take effect as they have to travel through your digestive system.
  • CBD oil and spray take around 5-10 minutes. The ideal time is as you complete your warm up and head for the 1st tee.
  • E-liquid enters your bloodstream through the surface of the lungs and takes effect immediately.
  • Topical application of CBD means it doesn’t enter your bloodstream but deliver it’s beneficial effects by binding to the receptors in the skin. This is great for recovery after your round.
