Experimenting with and discovering new products is part of the joy of CBD. The vast selection on offer today not only allows you to find a product that’s ideal for your lifestyle, but it can be a fun experience too.
Research shows that CBD is non-intoxicating and non-addictive. As a result, it stands to reason that you could take multiple CBD products at once, but it is best to speak with a medical professional if you have any questions or concerns. Many customers, however, do exactly this and combine different CBD products to enjoy a vastly increased range of wellness benefits.
In this article, we explain how to combine multiple types of CBD products to get the most out of your experience and live a happier, healthier life.
Are There Any Risks To Combining CBD?
As long as you’re not drinking entire bottles of CBD at a time, numerous studies suggest that there is little to no harm in consuming multiple types of CBD products together. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a report in 2018 confirming that this is the case. CBD is a non-addictive and non-intoxicating substance that can be enjoyed with multiple doses per day, and virtually zero risk of adverse effects.
Tips (and Benefits) When Combining CBD Products
Combining different CBD products can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. The biggest advantage is when you combine CBD products that galvanize physiological responses within different organ systems in the body. One of the best examples of this is eating a CBD edible and then inhaling CBD via a vape device.
When you consume an edible, the CBD is absorbed slowly via the digestive gut. This process often takes hours, which explains why the effects of an edible last so much longer than the effects of other types of CBD products. When you inhale CBD from a vape, on the other hand, the effects are almost instantaneous since the CBD is “transferred” directly to the bloodstream via small capillaries in the lungs.
The end result combines the advantages of both edibles and vapes; you get the near-instant effects from the vape, and you get long-lasting results from the effects of the edible. This is just one example of how combining different CBD products can lead to an amplified CBD experience and improved effects overall.
1. Activate all body systems!
As you can see from the example above, combining different CBD products often leads to different systems within the body working together to produce an amplified effect. We’ve used the example of combing edibles with vapes, but another good example that can result in an incredibly relaxing experience, is combining an edible or an oil with a CBD bath bomb.
As the effects of the edible slowly settle in over the course of 20 or 30 minutes, the slow release of CBD from the bath bomb begins to absorb through the skin, leading to a synergistic effect that essentially amplifies the relaxation effects that are experienced.
2. Vary (or even alternate) your consumption methods
Another great example of combining different CBD products to maximum effect is using both edibles (or oils) and topical ointments to target acute discomfort such as sore muscles or aching joints. When you apply a pain-relieving CBD topical to a sore area, the effects can take a while to kick in – similar to an edible. If you consume a dose of CBD oil or a gummy about half an hour before, however, you can “kickstart” your body’s endocannabinoid system and activate receptors so they’ll be ready and available when the topical pain-relief ointment is applied.
The result is amplified pain-relief thanks to two different consumption methods that target different systems within the body.
3. Experiment… And have some fun!
Last but not least, combining multiple CBD products is just flat-out fun! Particularly for beginner CBD users, testing and trying out multiple types of CBD products (often at the same time) will provide the opportunity to really “investigate” your body’s endocannabinoid system, and get a feel for which products work, which don’t, and which seem to work well together to amplify your own personal preferred effects.

Final Thoughts on Combining CBD Products
All things considered, combining different CBD products may work for you, as long as you pay attention to your body and consult with a medical professional. If you are taking medication, have a medical condition, or are pregnant, always discuss CBD with a medical professional before taking it.
If you are taking CBD to support your general health, you may wish to take a few different doses throughout the day.
