Wondering how you’re supposed to pick the best CBD product for your lifestyle needs? Don’t worry. It’s one of the most asked questions when it comes to purchasing CBD products.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re going over all the products you’d like to try, most importantly, how you see those products integrating with your daily routine. There’s nothing worse than getting all excited about a new wellness routine, only to find out it doesn’t mesh well with what you’ve got going on.
You’ll see what we mean in just a moment. In the meantime, let’s start with some basic CBD knowledge, and then we’ll show you how to choose the right CBD product for your needs.
Chances are, you have a general idea of what CBD is, but it gets a little fuzzy for some folks past the acronym. CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it’s one of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
There are several cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and they all have remarkable therapeutic capabilities. Most of them, except THC, are non-psychoactive. CBD, itself, is non-psychoactive since it contains minimal THC levels — less than 0.3%.
CBD has become increasingly popular, due to the therapeutic benefits it provides to consumers. It integrates well into a wide variety of CBD wellness products, making it sometimes a little difficult to choose when you’re shopping.
The CBD market gets bigger by the day, so you’ll run across a wide variety of manufacturers and products. But how do you know which ones to try? Let’s begin by talking about the product categories and the benefits associated with them, starting with CBD gummies.
Who wouldn’t love the candy-esque appeal these sweet edibles provide?
CBD gummies are a great place to start your CBD journey if you want CBD that tastes good. However, there are several edible options on the market these days, including (but not limited to) cookies, gummies, teas, drinks, waters, and more.
The selection of CBD edibles on the market is quite expansive. Don’t get overwhelmed if you don’t immediately know about some of the ingredients included. Many companies combine CBD with other wellness ingredients to bolster the effects for consumers.
Start by reading the information the company provides, but do your own research afterward. This way, you gain an unbiased perspective of the product and the ingredients.
The only downside to edibles is they have the lowest bioavailability rate of all the product categories. They take longer to kick in since they have to pass through the digestive system before absorbing into the bloodstream.
They also lose a little bit of concentration during the trip through the digestive system. However, they’re still an excellent option for people wanting easy-to-manage, pre-measured serving amounts.
CBD gummies are a great choice if you’re just getting started with CBD and want something tasty with easy-to-manage servings.
Sometimes you need targeted relief, and this is precisely what CBD topicals provide.
Consumers love CBD topicals, because they never enter the bloodstream, but instead travel through multiple layers of skin before reaching the muscle in need.
There are plenty of topicals, like our Muscle and Joint Cream: Cooling Formula, infused with White Willow Bark, Caffeine, and Menthol. This formulation provides an instant cooling and warming sensation that addresses your discomfort while the CBD starts to work its magic.
But it doesn’t stop there. There are plenty of other topicals like CBD bath bombs, facial oils, lotions, salves, and balms.
Whether you’re sore after an intense workout or your hands are cramping up after typing 60 wpm for eight hours straight, there’s a CBD topical for that.
Look into CBD topicals if you don’t want to ingest your CBD to get relief (whether for personal reasons or drug-testing concerns). It’s also the ideal choice for those individuals with a troubled area that causes great discomfort.
CBD Tincture OIls
Last, but certainly not least, we arrive at the OG of CBD products, CBD tincture oils. Tinctures are great for some people since you take them sublingually (under the tongue). When you take it this way, the cannabinoids absorb into the bloodstream through the capillaries under your tongue, which means faster results in most cases.
If you opt for a CBD tincture oil, it’s helpful to understand the different types of oil you’ll encounter — full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolates.
Full spectrum oil also offers the highest level of the entourage effect, since all of the compounds are intact, ready to work synergistically to provide a deeper level of therapeutic benefits.
Broad spectrum oils don’t contain any THC (removed during an additional extraction process). You still get some of the entourage effects, just not as pronounced since some cannabinoids are no longer present.
On the other hand, if you want pure CBD, go with the CBD isolate option.
The best way to approach this situation is to try different products and see which works best. One of the beautiful things about human nature is we’re all incredibly unique, with varying biological compositions.
This means what works for you may not affect the next person, due to our unique factors. The only possible downside is that it takes a little due diligence to figure out your serving amount with the dropper.
So, we suggest starting with a small amount and working your way up in concentration until you reach your desired effect. CBD topicals provide a nice variety of ways to consume: You can combine it with food or drinks, or go with the straight-up dropper method.
Trying to find the best CBD product for your lifestyle can seem overwhelming, but it’s not. Honestly, we’ve found that the best way to approach this situation is to try something from all categories — since they all have varying levels of bioavailability.
Besides, experimenting is part of the fun!
