Not everyone likes the taste of CBD oil and many can’t hold it under the tongue for long. CBD oil can have an acquired earthy taste, and some never acquire that taste. This is the reason some companies add flavors to their CBD oils. But if you don’t want to have any added flavors and still hate the taste, there is another, more traditional way to have it. Many people don’t know about this Ayurvedic method of applying oils in and around the belly button.

This technique is called the Pechoti intake method. According to Ayurvedic text, it’s said that the Pechoti gland is located behind the belly button. When a woman is pregnant, this is where nutrients are carried between mother and baby. At the end of the umbilical cord lies the Pechoti gland, and it remains there long after birth. It is believed that every human has a Pechoti gland and it is connected to more than 70 million nerves, tissues, and organs throughout the body. Yes, 70 MILLION!

Ayurvedic Medicine

In cultures that practice Ayurvedic medicine, applying oils through the belly button via the Pechoti gland is thought to address many different physical and mental ailments. By applying cannabis oil to the belly button, the Pechoti gland is a natural delivery method that allows cannabinoids to cover the entire body. While more research is needed to understand this, this is unlike any other delivery method. Rasayana Ayurvedic was the goal for many who practiced early ayurvedic medicine. This term is refers to the science of increasing one’s lifespan. It is believed that taking oil through the Pechoti gland may help treat various diseases and conditions faster.

Limited Knowledge And Research

Unfortunately, you won’t find much more information on this subject as there is not enough research on this topic. Decades of demonizing cannabis have limited our knowledge of traditional consumption methods.

Most people I know have no idea about this consumption method. It is, however, widely utilized in other countries around the globe. This method of using cannabis may not be popular, but according to Ayurvda, it could offer many benefits not provided through other consumption methods.
