CBD oral sprays are well on their way to overtaking CBD oral drops as the preferred means of orally ingesting a regular dose.
Just like any other kind of mouth spray they deliver an exact dose which has the advantage of being distributed over a wider area, aiding with rapid and effective absorption.
Most commonly these sprays are used on a more ad-hoc basis than would be expected from capsules but of course, they can be taken routinely and ideally just before mealtimes to aid with absorption.
As with all CBD products, there are a wide variety of concentrations out there and many manufacturers also offer these with artificial flavourings. Depending on your perspective the latter is either an advantage or a disadvantage to using CBD oral sprays.
Just like all of these products it’s essential to find a routine and dosage that provides relief from symptoms without entering into unnecessary and expensive ‘overkill’.

Unlike CBD capsules which tend to take a while to take effect and are best used for steady maintenance, oral sprays are much faster acting.
As with oral drops, sprays are applied underneath the tongue because this part of the mouth allows for the fastest absorption into the bloodstream.
Try not to swallow for a minute or two and avoid the temptation to swill it around the mouth – you will get used to the natural taste sooner or later!
Effects will always vary between people for all manner of reasons, ranging from natural tolerance/body chemistry through to body mass and intensity of the ailment.
With this being said, those who swear by oral sprays claim that they allow for a very fast acting relief as and when required.
In our opinion only vaping offers a more instantaneous means of delivering a quality dosage that takes effect almost immediately.
What To Look For In A CBD Oral Spray
Let’s start by addressing the ‘elephant in the room’ – is it OK to use flavoured sprays?
Purists will shudder at the thought because of the golden rule for choosing any kind of product – only 100% chemical free compounds should be ingested.
We’re pretty sure that there’s some truth in this. Sprays that are proven to be most effective for most people are all extracts from plants/hemp that has been naturally and organically grown without any exposure to chemicals or fertilisers.
Likewise, the extraction process should always be via CO2 – steer well clear of any chemical method even though these products tend to be considerably cheaper.
But is it ok to add a smidgen of artificial flavour to make the spray more tolerable? It’s really a matter of personal choice, but as a rule of thumb, you’ll discover that the best manufacturers rarely offer oral sprays with any flavourings whatsoever.
Our take on it would be that if you must take it orally, and cannot stand the natural taste of CBD, then artificially flavoured sprays are better than nothing.
Just be sure to check the quality of the base oil meets the exacting minimum standards, there’s so much competition nowadays that there’s no need to settle for a second rate product.
Who Will Gain Most From Oral Sprays?
Assuming you’re naturally responsive to CBD then we’d recommend this delivery method as being a clean, discreet and effective way of receiving a fast-acting dose.
There’s certainly a psychological advantage, and we’ve heard countless examples of people with anxiety/panic disorders finding them to be a superb way of instantly taking the edge off stressful situations.
The same can be said of vape oils, but of course, not everyone enjoys the sensation and sprays have the advantage of being able to be taken anywhere. They’re a solid choice for people who may not necessarily wish or need to maintain a steady dose.
The Best Way Of Consuming CBD?
CBD oral sprays are certainly a handy way of being able to take a quick and fast-acting dose without the fuss and mess of using droplets.
As with any method, have an idea of what you’re intending to use it for. Will you be taking it on a regular basis (perhaps three times a day at mealtimes), and you require something to help soothe things over?
Knowing what you want from CBD is always the first decision to make, and for many people, CBD sprays provide the best delivery method going.
