What is CBD?
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is the key active ingredient found in hemp. Global studies have shown that by consuming CBD you prime and re-engage the endocannabinoid system leading to a variety of benefits. No medical claims can be made, however reports and consumer feedback has shown that CBD can have various effects.
It’s found in all varieties of cannabis but dominates the makeup of hemp plants.
Studies have shown that cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, unlike THC. Therefore, consuming CBD won’t ever cause a high or temporarily inhibit cognitive functions. This makes CBD an appealing option for children or anyone looking to incorporate the balancing effects of cannabinoids without having to experience the fuzziness of a high.
Relax - Are you looking to chill out, sleep, or take the edge off?
Relief - Inflammation and pain disrupting your everday routine?
Replace - Looking to cut back on nicotine, opioids or other medications?
Regulate - Just want to stay balanced and healthy every day?
Depending on what you are looking for, CBD may be a good option for you.
Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum or Isolate?
Full spectrum CBD is when the CBD product contains all other cannabinoids and plant material found in the hemp or cannabis plant which can also include trace amounts of THC (below the legal limit of 0.2%).
Similar to full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum contains all other cannabinoid and plant material. However the THC is removed to the levels of non-detection.
CBD Isolate is CBD in it's purest form. All other cannabinoids and plant material is removed.
How to take CBD?
CBD capsules and gummies are popular methods for consuming CBD. They are discreet and easy to take anywhere and any time with precise dosing. Ingested products are great for those who don't need quick relief, but want longer lasting effects.
Keep in mind that ingested CBD takes longer to kick in, so make sure you give it at least two hours before consuming more CBD.
Example Products - Capsules, Gummies, Honey Sticks
Sublingual products have a quicker onset and higher absorption. Looking for quick relief? Tinctures are a great sublingual product. Just make sure you hold the product under the tongue for at least 30 seconds.
Example Products - Tinctures, Oral Sprays
Topical products are great for skin rashes, localised pain relief, achy muscles, joints, inflammation and anti-aging.
Example Products - Bath Bombs, Lotions, Muscle Rubs
Inhilation is the quickest delivery method and may achieve results in minutes. CBD vape, e-juice and flower are great choices for those looking for quick relief or need a higher dosage.
Example Products - E-Liquids, Vape Pens, E-Liquid Boosters
Remember, everybody is different in how much CBD they might need or what method of consumption is best. It is important to start small and work your way up over the course of two weeks to properly gauge the right dosage for you.
