Same same, but different? - What's better, CBD drops or spray?

CBD dropper vs. spray what's best?

At first thought, there is nothing strange about using a dropper (or, as some call it, pipettes). I have used them before, and I knew how they worked. But for some reason, I did not expect to see one there. And do you know what's funny? Now that pipettes are all I’m used to, I can see a change happening. 

The latest CBD oil I bought didn't come with a dropper. Instead, it came with a spray. So how do I feel about it? Pretty good, I must say. 

Sprays are easier to use, less fragile, and more hygienic.But there is one important question that needs to be answered - are the two the same, or do we have to give up some benefits of CBD for the increased comfort of use? Let's find out.

There are some differences: application & dosage

Is the experience of using CBD drops and CBD spray different? Absolutely!

CBD Spray - pump it up

Using a CBD spray is very easy. A CBD spray works the same way as a good, old breath freshener. You open your mouth, raise your tongue, press the pump, and voilà, you have just made your body very happy!

Remember that for CBD to work, you need to keep it under your tongue for at least 30 seconds. You can use anything between 1 and 3 pumps, up to 3 times a day.

CBD Dropper - drop it down

If you have been using CBD oil for a while, then you know the drill. First, you squeeze the top of the dropper to suck in some oil, then you carefully direct the dropper under your tongue, squeeze some drops out, and wait 30-60 seconds before swallowing. While the process itself isn't very complicated, using a dropper isn't perfect.

First of all, dosing can be challenging. An inexperienced user might accidentally place one or two drops more than intended. While this is not a huge problem (as you can not overdose on CBD), nobody likes to take the wrong dose by accident.

Second of all, the tongue should never touch the end of the dropper. You don't want to introduce any germs into your oil. And trust me, you don't drop it on your bathroom floor! That glass is hard to clean.

Some things remain the same

While sprays and drops provide a different application experience, the effectiveness of the CBD remains exactly the same.

Whether it's sleep quality, relaxation, pain or inflammation issues that brought you here, CBD drops and CBD spray will both provide your body with the same level of support.

So which one should you choose?

With the effects of both applications being the same, the only thing that really matters is your personal preference.

While many people are switching to sprays due to their ease of use and higher hygiene, we still have plenty of customers who love CBD drops.

For this very reason, we leave the choice up to you. If your favourite oil is now sold with a pump, but you want to stick to droppers, just let us know. We will make sure to add one to your order, free of charge.

Myths & truths - did you know?

CBD drops and CBD sprays have the same effects, but what are those effects? Let's look at some common beliefs on the effects of CBD and separate the facts from the fiction.

CBD drops can help you ease pain

Did you know CBD can interact with your endocannabinoid system in the same way as the endocannabinoids produced in your body?

The endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors that plays a vital role in multiple processes in our bodies, including how we experience pain.

Since CBD can interact with these receptors, it has the potential to impact how humans experience pain. It is especially the case of pain arising from inflammation or muscle tension.

CBD spray is helping people with dementia

More research still needs to be done to fully understand the impact CBD can have on people with dementia.

Currently, there is no scientific evidence that shows CBD can prevent, slow down, or reverse dementia. However, early findings suggest that it might help manage symptoms of dementia, due to its calming and relaxing properties.

Please, note that any patient with dementia should consult their doctor before including CBD oil in their diet.

CBD drops can help you sleep better

Poor quality of sleep is one of the primary motivations for purchasing CBD. And that's not a surprise.

Early research suggests taking CBD might improve your sleep due to its ability to help you switch off and relax. It’s also because CBD helps your endocannabinoid system keep your body in balance, making it easier to fall, and stay asleep!

CBD drops can be useful for pets

Pets can feel anxious, scared, worried and suffer from pain just like us.

With the lockdown potentially ending soon, pet owners will be spending less time at home, and their animals might feel anxious or distressed.

According to a survey done in collaboration with veterinarians, many of their clients claimed that CBD helped ease their pets pain, as well as anxiety symptoms.

Remember to do your research before giving CBD to your pet, as different animals require different doses of CBD.

CBD spray is dangerous

Has anybody ever told you that CBD is dangerous? If so, they probably meant THC. THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant known for its "euphoric" effects. While no cases of THC overdose have ever been recorded, THC can impact our ability to make decisions and react quickly. This is not the case with CBD.

CBD doesn't impair your judgment in even the slightest, so you can use it safely at any time of the day or night, no matter what you're doing.

One thing to remember - skip CBD if you're pregnant or breastfeeding, as not enough research has been done on CBD use in those cases.

And what do regular CBD users have to say?

One of many things that distinguishes HERBLIZ from other CBD brands is that we have two concept stores, which allow us to directly interact with our customers on a regular basis.

This enables us to receive immediate feedback, which we can then use to improve. That's one of the reasons we remain one of the top CBD brands in Europe. So what do regular CBD users have to say?

Other than countless praise for our highly trained and helpful staff, we have heard great things about our CBD oil as well.

"HERBLIZ [is] the best CBD oil for sleep and insomnia for me." and "HERBLIZ CBD oil is currently my preferred method to come down quickly in the evening." are just a few examples of what people say about the impact CBD oil has had on their lives.

And how do you feel about our products? Let us know!

So, do you want CBD spray or CBD drops? Get both to see what suits you best
