So, you've heard all the hype, you've seen the recommendations of different cannabis products, and have decided it's time to give CBD a try for yourself. But with such a wide variety available, you might be a bit unsure where to start, or which product is best for you. Here, we are going to take a quick look at a few of the different forms of CBD products that are available, to help you find the one that's most tailored to your needs.
We are going to start off with what is probably the most popular method of administration; the CBD Oil Tincture.This method enables the Cannabis oil to enter the body through the sublinguals - or under the tongue - and can start to work in a matter of just minutes, with effects lasting in the body for up to 6 hours at a time. Allowing CBD to enter the body this way means it can get straight into the bloodstream to act quickly, because the compounds interact directly with your Endocannabinoid system. When responsibly sourced, CBD oil is the easiest way to get high quality CBD into your system, in its strongest, purest form.
Growing in popularity, this method involves a tastier alternative to oils, usually in the form of gummies or sweets or even chocolate. CBD edibles are, quite literally, edible CBD! This method is useful for those who want a medium to high dosage of CBD, without the natural taste that can come with oil tinctures. Edible CBD products are available in different strengths but, remember, the strength will be per sweet.
For keen vapers, E-Liquids are another good alternative to oils for those who want to avoid the taste of CBD, because they are available in a whole range of weird and wonderful flavours. Due to the nature of vaping, dosing is lower and a little more difficult to monitor than oils or edibles. Each bottle will display a strength per bottle, but the amount of CBD inhaled depends on a variety of things, including the type of vape pen being used, the user's preference on vapour produced and the length of each inhalation. While CBD is usually dosed at specific times during the day, a lot of E-Liquid users will vape throughout the day.
CBD LOTIONS & BALMS
Unlike other CBD products we've mentioned, CBD creams are not ingestible, but are used externally, and are said to help with joint and muscle pains throughout the body when applied directly to the affected area. Topical CBD products are available in a range of strengths and can target a variety of different pains. With cooling, heating and soothing elements available, creams aren't limited to just one use! What's more, as well as treating aches and pains externally, topical CBD can be used for skin conditions, tattoo healing and general skin health.
So now we've covered some different forms of CBD, you should have a better idea on which form you would like to try. For some, combining more than one form of CBD at different times of the day works best, whereas others will have their one go-to product. Always remember to source high quality CBD from a reputable, reliable source and do plenty of research before making a purchase. Happy CBD'ing!
