Choosing the right CBD product
Knowing which CBD product is right for you can be tricky. Not only are there many products available but there are a number of factors you should consider when choosing the right product for you. Follow our guide below to discover which product is the one for you..
Route of Administration
There are four main ways of delivering CBD. Sublingually – CBD oil or paste absorbed via the oral mucosa within the mouth, usually under the tongue. This method works quickly and is highly bioavailable. Pulmonary – Vaping CBD E-Liquid or dabbing wax crumble, distillate, etc. This option offers the highest rates of absorption and strongest effects however effects are shorter. Oral – CBD Capsules, CBD Drinks and CBD Edibles will take longer to become effective however effects will be longer lasting. The final option is Topical – CBD Skincare is perfect for enjoying the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD to a localised area.
CBD products are also available in a range of strengths. This is usually displayed on the item in milligrams (mg) or as a percentage of the final container, e.g. 5%, 10%, etc. Although CBD has a very broad, safe and effective dosing window, dosage is unique to the individual. With that said it is advisable to begin with a low dose of CBD to monitor how you respond then slowly increase the dose, as required, until you find your sweet spot. Once you ascertain your dosage you can retain efficacy at this dose for years or even decades.
Additionally there are three main extracts used to create the CBD products you see around you today, each with unique features. Moreover, there are also three main families of wellness molecules within the cannabis plant each being researched around the world for their therapeutic value. These families are known as cannabinoids like CBD and THC, terpenes and flavonoids. Full Spectrum CBD contains all of the molecules that are found in the natural plant including traces of THC. Don’t worry though there will never be enough to get you high. Broad Spectrum CBD, on the other hand contains many of these beneficial compounds too but without the THC. Thirdly, CBD Isolate contains only highly refined >99% pure CBD.
Another important point to note when choosing a CBD oil is taste. Traditional full spectrum CBD oil is earthy and bitter tasting which can be off putting for some. Luckily there are many options now for a more palatable experience. Broad Spectrum and isolate based oils are more neutral tasting than their full spectrum counterpart. If you prefer flavour in your oil, many brands are now adding essential oils and other flavouring to their oils. Alternatively you could choose capsules or edibles which will help you swerve any unpleasant tastes while lasting longer in your system.
