Beginners’ Guide To CBD Products: Cannabidiol Oil, CBD Gummies, CBD Vape Liquid, CBD Pain Cream, CBD For Pets
If you have been looking for a natural treatment with CBD, you may have seen an enormous number of various hemp CBD products available today.
While it is certainly not a bad thing in itself, and is, in fact, a confirmation of the therapeutic benefits of he1np CBD, the abundance of choice can make one’s head spin.
Here’s a concise overview to help you make an informed decision about the health products you are going to select.
HEMP CBD OIL DROPS /TINCTURE/EXTRACT
Hemp CBD oil drops, tincture, and extracts are the most popular form of supplementing with CBD. Available in bottles with a dropper cap so you can take them orally as needed in the comfort of your home.
Oils and tinctures you usually take sublingually, which allows for fast absorption. Their most significant advantage is purity. They typically do not require any preservatives or additives, though some manufacturers use taste flavorings. If you opt to take CBD in liquid form, make sure there are no unnecessary artificial ingredients. Preservatives and chemicals can compromise the whole point of using supplements for perfect health.
CBD extracts made with several oils as a base, including coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and hemp seed oil. CBD extract diluted with hemp seed oil is the most synergistic and potent formula. This formula creates a powerful entourage effect. Studies show that hempseed oil is by far the best agent for CBD as hemp seed oil increases the CBD’s bioavailability. By protecting it from being broken down by stomach acids. Hemp seed oil “Nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” has the perfectly balanced ratio of essential fatty acids 3:1 contained in hemp seed oil (EFAs) Omega 3, Omega 6 for long term human consumption.
Method of Extraction
Another aspect to consider is the method of extraction, which the manufacturer uses to get CBD from the plant material. Often less expensive hemp CBD oils may use harsh solvents such as butane or propane. While this makes the extraction process cheaper, the question is. Do you want to compromise the health benefits of your hemp CBD oil with residuals of the toxic substances? Supercritical CO2 extraction is proven to be the best method for creating hemp CBD oil. This method involves using carbon dioxide under high pressure to isolate over 100 cannabinoids from the raw hemp botanical material. Reputable manufacturers employ CO2 extraction and are proud to mention it.
To compare different products, express CBD concentration in percentage terms. Simply by dividing the CBD amount in milligrams by the total amount of liquid in the bottle. A 10 ml bottle is 10,000 mg. Thus, 500 mg of CBD per 10 ml bottle equals (500/10,000) X 100=5%.
While higher doses of CBD have a more pronounced effect, I suggest starting with a low entry-level concentration of 5%.
Observe the effects over several days and make adjustments if needed. If you do not see the desired results after 5-7 days, start gradually working your dose up.
Note that as a natural holistic remedy. CBD oil/tinctures may not necessarily produce desired effects immediately after taking as pharmaceutical drugs do. Most pharmaceutical drugs act chemically in a very targeted way to alleviate symptoms. But CBD will mobilize internal resources and gradually helping the body to heal.
It typically takes the body at least one week to start accumulating and optimally using hemp CBD active ingredients.
CBD SOFTGELS AND GUMMIES
The second most popular form to take CBD is the softgel. Softgels and gummies are most convenient for taking throughout the day on the go.
Tumeric or melatonin can be mixed into capsules to generate synergistic effects when taken for specific conditions. Click here for a listing of all of our edible and softgel products.
CBD VAPE LIQUID
For those who enjoy the process vaping, you can vape CBD, allowing it to absorb through the lungs. Generally, vaping allows the speedy delivery of CBD into the bloodstream. This form is also best for tackling conditions related to the chest area.
Be aware with regards to CBD vape liquid that CBD oil can be too thick and viscous for vaporizers. Thus companies use chemically-based thinning agents, some of which can be harmful, especially with long-term regular use. Read labels carefully, and research ingredients you do not understand.

CBD ENERGY DRINKS
CBD energy drinks are yet somewhat of an innovative product in the market. Usually, these drinks contain caffeine, which gives energy, but CBD takes the edge off. So there are no jitters, and one just feels right, has more power, and can focus more clearly. It is a promising form to supplement with CBD for college students and office workers.

CBD SALVE / BALM
CBD balms typically used in conjunction with other CBD products. And CBD balms provide a more pronounced topical relief to your aches and pains. The concentration of cannabinoids is highest at the place where they are applied. Thus balms can significantly amplify the positive effects of oral CBD use.

CBD TREATS FOR PETS
Having discovered the amazing benefits of hemp CBD, humans extended them to pets. Interestingly, while some people may not feel much when taking CBD, pets, and especially dogs, are very sensitive to it. Even older, arthritis-ridden dogs become very playful and start jumping around the house. We are yet to hear about a dog who did not see a fantastic result with using CBD treats. CBD treats also work miracles for dogs with separation anxiety. Click here for a listing of all of our pet products.
CBD cosmetics are a new trend in the CBD market, and undoubtedly, a major one. Skin is known to contain a vast number of CBD receptors. And protective anti-cancer benefits of CBD bode well for all sorts of anti-age creams and sunscreens. Therefore I suggest you try something unorthodox: instead of going for chemically-loaded cosmetics formulas. Try to use a 100% simple all-natural plant CBD extract oil for at least 3-4 weeks. Why? Because CBD is a wholesome remedy and works by modulating and harnessing internal body resources to generate optimum balance. And all the “alien” chemicals may interfere and weaken the artistic effect. Click here for a listing of all of our beauty products.
To conclude, let me leave you with this one thought. The research findings on CBD published in the past few years look nothing short of miraculous. With no significant side-effects reported, what can hold you back? From trying the fantastic natural medicine and see what it can do to improve your health and wellbeing?
