4 Ways to take cannabidiol for improved health

Many people turn to CBD (cannabidiol) as a valid option for pain and stress relief and improved health. Most people opt for the oil form to bring positive change in wellness, but did you know that there are other ways to take CBD too? There are various forms of CBD – from topicals to edible pastilles and capsules.


Topical CBD in the form of a gel may assist with the symptomatic relief of muscle pain and inflammation in the back and joints and minor sprains and strains.

CBD Capsules

CBD capsules are made in a similar way to regular CBD oils. It’s super convenient as you can simply pop one into your mouth and swallow it with a glass of water. What makes it even more convenient is that the dosage is already measured out in each capsule, which eliminates any possible guesswork involved.

CBD Drops

Some people struggle to take pills and capsules. I am often one of them. CBD drops offer an effective way to get all the benefits of CBD, with peak blood levels being measured within about two hours of taking the liquid drops under the tongue.

CBD Pastilles

Another fun way of getting your CBD benefits is by taking the newly emerged CBD pastilles. These have been created to emulate candy, taste just like a sweet treat and are ideal for those who want to enjoy the benefits of CBD, but shy away from its naturally strong flavour.

Ground-breaking research into different forms of CBD led pharmaceutical company, Adcock Ingram, to launch its ADCO CBD range of products. It comprises ADCO CBD STRESS (available in drops and capsule format), ADCO CBD DAILY products (available in drops, edible pastille and capsule format) and ADCO CBD PAIN products (available in drops, capsules and gel format).

The ADCO CBD edible pastilles come in pre-dosed bites, various colours and an assortment of delectable lemon-lime, mango, raspberry and strawberry flavours.

You can find ADCO CBD products at selected Clicks and Dis-Chem stores, as well as selected independent pharmacies and online stores.
