I first began using CBD to combat chronic pain, anxiety, and depression in 2013. At that time the only forms I knew of and was comfortable using were tinctures, topicals, and edibles. In the past year, I tried two more forms and fell in love with them!

Vaping and isolates have become my favorite forms of CBD. What I love about using a CBD isolate is that there are many different ways to use it, it’s easy to measure, and since a little goes a long way it is also cost-effective.
Here are two of my favorite ways to medicate with CBD isolates.
The easiest and quickest way to consume a CBD isolate is to place it under your tongue. It is flavorless and dissolves quickly. Click here for milligram measuring spoons. I have yet to experiment to see what dosage would work best for me for daytime use or to quiet an anxiety attack, but for night time muscle relaxation and calming I consume 25-30mgs.
I haven’t tried cooking with it yet, as I have heard that if you cook at too high of a temperature the isolate loses effectiveness. Instead, I like to sprinkle it on a bedtime smoothie bowl or ice cream. I also like to add it to an evening cup of hot cocoa, but not until I give the cocoa a moment to cool off. Again it has no flavor so you don’t even notice it, that is until it kicks in! Put your daily dose in a water bottle and sip it throughout the day!
My next project will be to make my own topical oil and large batch of edibles!
Anyways, if you are looking for an easy and affordable way to use CBD, I would recommend starting with an isolate.
