The list of CBD products continues to grow by the day. The beauty industry is even turning to cannabidiol, creating CBD-infused serums, face masks, and bath bombs. No matter what form of CBD you choose, look for words like “full spectrum” or “broad spectrum”.
In addition to full or broad spectrum products, purchasing lab-tested products is important. All CBD products should be tested by a third-party lab so that you know exactly what you’re putting in your body. This complete list of CBD products will help you to decide which form of CBD oil is right for you.
A CBD isolate is a crystalline form of cannabidiol. It contains 99% pure CBD and no additives whatsoever. CBD isolate comes in a white powder form, that can be administered in several ways. The way you consume CBD isolate is up to you. You can sprinkle it on the tongue, add a spoonful to your coffee, or include it in your fruit smoothie recipe.
A CBD tincture is another form of edible cannabidiol. Tincture comes in a small vial, applied placing drops on the tongue. Each tincture has a different potency level depending on the mixture contained within the bottle. After reading the dosage information, place the recommended amount of drops on the tongue. For the full effect, wait a few minutes before swallowing.
The main reason for the growing popularity of CBD tinctures is the convenience. CBD products as a whole are increasing in demand since they are very discrete and convenient to use. Another perk is that the effects of CBD tinctures show up quickly, typically between 15 and 30 minutes. Not only do they show up quickly, but they also last for up to 6 hours.
A form of edible cannabidiol is CBD capsules. They come in pill form, and you ingest them just as you would a Tylenol or Advil. Simply pop a pill in your mouth, take a sip of water, and swallow. Convenience isn’t the only benefit that comes along with CBD capsules. Capsule doses are exact, there is no “weedy” taste, and the effects are long-lasting.
The ingredients contained within CBD capsules vary depending on the company creating them. All CBD capsules contain some form of CBD extract or another, and many of them also contain an oil carrier. Butter oil is a common carrier since CBD is fat-soluble (unable to dissolve in water).
Consuming cannabis in gummy form is extremely common. THC gummies are one of the most popular types of cannabis edibles, and CBD gummies are following suit. Sweet or sour gummies are a fun – and tasty – way to consume your CBD oil.
CBD gummies labeled as 1:1 means that they contain the same amount of THC as they do CBD. Avoid these types of CBD products if you’re avoiding THC altogether. Also, be aware that some CBD gummies are more potent than others.
There’s no need to ingest or inhale CBD to experience the powers of this miracle drug. Topical CBD oil products like creams and lotions are an amazing method for combatting pain and inflammation. CBD topicals like creams, balms, and salves are designed for direct application on the skin.
After slathering on a CBD cream or salve, you’ll only need to wait about 15 to 20 minutes to feel the product’s full effects. This is an amazing treatment method for arthritis patients and anyone experiencing skin problems. Some studies are even pointing to the effectiveness of CBD as an acne treatment.
CBD spray is a less common form of cannabidiol, but it is quickly gaining popularity among Canadians. This is another type of CBD tincture, but instead of liquid CBD drops, it comes in spray form. So instead of a dropper bottle of concentrated CBD liquid, the product will come in a spray bottle. Listed on the product is the recommended dosage (amount of sprays/spritzes) .
CBD Vape Pens
Vaping and smoking CBD is another option. If you opt to smoke your CBD, simply choose a strain that is high in CBD and low in THC (we’ll talk about that next). The main perk of smoking and vaping is that the CBD enters your bloodstream immediately. There’s no waiting around for the effects to kick in.
But smoking cannabis isn’t for everyone, which is where vaping comes into play. Smoking has the potential for carcinogens, while vaping does not. Vaping CBD eliminates all carcinogens by first heating the oil just below the combustion temperature.
CBD Vape Juice
CBD vaping is done with a vaporizer, also known as a vape pen. The vape pen is filled with a cartridge that contains CBD vape juice, AKA CBD vape oil. Once the cartridge is in place, the vape pen heats up the vape juice until it boils. This boiling creates a CBD vapor, which is then inhaled. Inhaling the CBD like this allows it to enter the bloodstream in as little as 30 seconds.
CBD Beauty Products
Not many people realize that CBD has anti-aging properties. This feature makes it the perfect addition to beauty products like face masks and serums. CBD topical products are used for treating pain and inflammation of the skin. Preventing wrinkles and promoting healthy skin is a bonus.
CBD Dog Treats
CBD is not just beneficial to humans, but also to pets. These conditions include pain, anxiety, and canine/feline cancer. There are plenty of options for CBD dog treats and cat treats on the market. There are even CBD-infused topical creams for treating pet skin conditions.
