Pros and Cons of the Different CBD Delivery Methods

Pros and Cons of the Different CBD Delivery Methods

Featured in CBS News, Rolling Stone, and several other renowned media and publishing houses, cannabidiol (CBD) is surging in popularity for its safe and effective benefits. Clinical research shows that CBD helps with pain management, sleep regulation, anxiety relief, and more. With its impressive wellness advantages and non-addictive properties, it makes perfect sense that more people are trying CBD products.

A factor contributing to its popularity is the versatility of ways to consume CBD. From sublingual administration to topical application, allow us to walk you through the different ways to take CBD. We will also discuss the pros and cons of each approach, allowing you to make an informed decision before incorporating CBD into your routine.

Best Ways to Take CBD: Drops, Mints, and Topicals

Read on to determine which CBD delivery method is the most suitable for your needs.

1. Water-Soluble CBD Drops

Take CBD effectiveness to the next level with Urbal Activ's water-soluble and nano-emulsified CBD drops. Unlike traditional CBD oils, our organic, non-toxic, and 0.00 THC-free CBD drops offer enhanced bioavailability, making them 80 percent more absorbable and ten times more concentrated.

By breaking down CBD into its smallest form, our water-soluble drops enable quick and direct absorption into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. On the other hand, oil-based CBD drops go through the digestive system, undergoing a process known as First Pass Effect. This metabolic process reduces the potency or bioavailability of CBD, so you only get around 30 percent of the benefits.

Recommended dosing for water-soluble CBD is 2 to 4 drops twice daily, as opposed to CBD oil, which typically requires two full droppers twice daily. Our advanced formula ensures you receive a potent dose with every drop, making your CBD routine simple and effective.

How to Take Water-Soluble CBD Drops:

  • Under the tongue (sublingual). Let the liquid sit for 10 to 20 seconds before swallowing or chasing down with your choice of beverage.


  • Superior absorption and concentration, allowing you to unlock the full potential of CBD.
  • A convenient way to add CBD into your daily wellness regimen.
  • You use less drops and get to achieve greater results.


  • It can be more expensive than oil-based CBD.
  • Limited availability, as the technology and processing techniques involved in producing water-soluble CBD formulations are complex and relatively new. Fortunately, for those seeking water-soluble CBD drops, Urbal Activ stands as a leading and trusted source.

2. CBD Mints

CBD mints provide a hassle-free way to integrate CBD into your busy lifestyle. These mints offer a convenient on-the-go supplement, complementing your regular CBD routine of taking drops twice daily. Ideal for situational relief, these candies deliver a quick and discreet calming experience whenever needed.

With Urbal Activ mints, you can enjoy the benefits of CBD in a delicious and flavor-packed way. Our candies are meticulously handmade to deliver the perfect balance between CBD content and flavor (piña colada, key lime, strawberry-lemonade, peppermint, or cinnamon), making them a delightful little treat for your taste buds while offering therapeutic effects. Each piece contains 99.5 percent pure cannabidiol extract, ensuring you receive a precise and consistent dose with every intake.

Whether you're having a stressful day, dealing with mental fog, or seeking a sense of calm, Urbal Activ CBD mints are a safe, effective, and fast-acting solution.

How to Take CBD Mints:

  • Take one mint and dissolve it in your mouth. If you have an upcoming presentation at work or an anxiety-inducing gathering to attend, take a mint 10 to 15 minutes before the event. If you do not achieve your desired results, you can take another mint 45 minutes later. You may take as many as necessary since Urbal Activ CBD mints are all-natural and non-addictive.



  • Contains organic sugars or sweeteners for flavor enhancement. Although the amount is small, it may be a concern for those who have dietary restrictions due to health issues. If you have elevated blood sugar levels or diabetes, consult your healthcare provider to determine an approach that will not interfere with your blood sugar control.
