What are some ways that you can use 6° Wellness’ full spectrum 600 mg hemp extract?
Have you recently purchased or have been contemplating buying 6° Wellness’ full spectrum 600 mg hemp extract, but aren’t sure how to use CBD oil. In this article we will discuss some of 6° Wellness’ favorite ways to incorporate our 600 mg oil into our daily life.
Written by: Dr. Jonny Lisano, Ph.D.
The Tried and True: Oral Tincture
One of the most popular ways to use 6° Wellness CBD oil is as an oral tincture. If you are new to using CBD you might ask, “What is a tincture?”. Well, that is a great question. In general, a tincture is a plant concentrate that contains active ingredients that are suspended in oil and are taken orally by dispensing the desired amount into your mouth. The 6° Wellness 600 mg extract is derived from hemp, contains active ingredients like phytocannabinoids (such as CBD) and terpenes, and is suspended in MCT oil.
To use 6° Wellness oil extracts as an oral tincture simply fill the pre-marked dropper to your desired dose, dispense the oil under your tongue and just let it naturally dissolve. Repeat as necessary if your desired dose is larger than 10 mg, or 1 mL. The MCT oil that our extract is suspended in has a very warming taste and should not have any bitter off taste.
If you’re like me, your morning cup of coffee helps jumpstart your day each and every morning and gives you the energy boost you need to get out the door and tackle the day ahead. One of my personal favorite ways to consume my 6° Wellness CBD oil is as a part of my morning coffee; however, keep in mind that coffee consists mainly of water. Water and oil won’t naturally mix together. If you’re going to add your CBD oil to your morning cup o’ Joe, I’d suggest first dissolving your CBD in small amount of cream, give it a quick blast of heat in the microwave, quickly stir and then add it to your coffee. Or, if you’re on the go you can simply add your CBD oil straight into your latte from your favorite coffee shop!
Not a coffee person, but still like a warm dose of caffeine during your day? Try adding your CBD oil to a cozy, warm cup of tea. Just remember, tea like coffee, consists of mostly water. To get your CBD oil to fully dissolve we suggest using a little bit of cream to help.
Whether you’re on the go or looking for an easy post workout meal, a smoothie is a fantastic way to consume your 6° Wellness CBD oil. Simply add in your desired amount of oil with your favorite smoothie ingredients and blend. As we’ve discussed in a previous blog post, we suggest consuming your CBD oil with food containing fats. Research has shown that not only will this increase your absorption of CBD but also increase the bioavailability! You can read more on that here. Our suggestion to easily and deliciously increase the fat content of your smoothie is to add in a scoop of your favorite nut butter (peanut, almond, etc.).
If you’re looking for for a heartier and warmer meal option to consume your CBD oil try adding it to your bowl of oatmeal. We recommend preparing your oatmeal exactly how you normally would and just before you eat it stir in your desired amount of CBD oil. Not only will you be getting a delicious bowl of oatmeal full of great nutrients and complex carbs that will keep you full, but you’ll also be getting your CBD. I’d call that two birds with one stone!
If you haven’t heard of Musclelicious Foods’ protein puddings, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. Not only are they a stand-up family run operation, but the owners only make their products using the highest quality ingredients (just like 6° Wellness). Their puddings are delicious and come in a variety of flavors, and now some of their puddings come with 6° Wellness CBD oil already mixed in! Their CBD protein puddings have a little over 12 mg of CBD in every cup! If that’s not enough for you you can always mix in more 6° Wellness CBD oil yourself.
If you like to make your own salad dressings, this is a great opportunity to add a fun, new way to use you 6° Wellness CBD oil. Make your dressing as you usually would and just add in your desired amount of CBD oil. Just keep in mind that if you make your homemade dressing in large batches that you plan to use over time, that oils other than MCT oil may degrade your CBD over time. Read more about it here in a previous blog post, where we discuss why MCT oil is the best oil for CBD extracts.
It just goes to show that there are multiple ways to consume your 600 mg CBD oil from 6° Wellness. Whether its as a part of your morning coffee, post workout smoothie or part of your salad; you don’t have to limit yourself to using it only as a tincture (although there is nothing wrong with using as a tincture). Have fun with your CBD and experiment using it in different ways! The more ways you learn to use your CBD products the easier it will be to make it a part of your daily lifestyle.
