Welcome to our Buy Cannabidiol Guide!
This comprehensive document will explain everything you need to know about purchasing your first CBD product.
Typically, if you want to buy Cannabidiol (CBD) products you have to dig pretty deep to find accurate information. That’s because while CBD is becoming more popular, the information is typically scattered all across the web.
To compound this problem, CBD is also one of the most misunderstood dietary substances. Many people confuse it with THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
Contrary to these misconceptions, CBD is legal worldwide and is completely safe. It contains no psychoactive elements, so there is no chance of “getting high.”
Once you are ready to look at products, there are still many other factors to consider including; CBD concentration, type of product, and above all, your very own needs.
At CBDcannabis4u.com , we strongly believe that an informed customer is a happy customer. Our goal here is to empower you to make the best decisions possible when it comes to CBD supplements and feel 100% comfortable with your choices.
We also aim to cut through the bulk of misinformation that surrounds CBD, so this guide was written with scientific integrity from start to finish.
For you convenience, this guide is broken into 2 sections.
Types of CBD Products
1. Buying Criteria
CBD products come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Understanding how to compare similar products and distinguish seemingly identical products is your first step toward making an informed decision when it comes to CBD.
Below, we will examine the four most important criteria that mark the differences between CBD products and give you a quick and handy way to tell them apart.
One of the most important buying criteria for many people is how much CBD each product contains. Obviously, different products contain different quantities of CBD, and even though there isn’t such thing as “too much CBD,” it pays to know exactly how much you’re ingesting. When checking for CBD quantity, make sure that it specifically relates to CBD and not just overall hemp oil, as we will see below.
Hemp Oil Volume
CBD products are typically measured in two quantities: CBD quantity, as we’ve seen above, and hemp oil quantity, which refers to the total volume of hemp oil contained in the product. While hemp oil has beneficial properties of its own, when buying CBD products you should really be looking specifically for the quantity of CBD that is present in a particular product.
As an example, consider that the relationship of hemp oil to CBD is very similar to fish oil and its beneficial compounds. Fish oil supplements contain a certain amount of total fish oil and a certain amount of DHA and EPA (which are the important substances in this supplement). So, people shopping for fish oil supplements should in fact be looking for total EPA and DHA quantities per pill – not total fish oil. The same holds true for CBD as well. When buying hemp oil products, people should be looking for the CBD quantity present in a particular product instead of the hemp oil quantity.
Along with CBD volume, concentration is considered by most people to be the most important characteristic in any CBD product. Concentration refers to the abundance of CBD when compared to the total volume of the product. At Healthy Hemp Oil, we offer products that range from normal strength to super-high CBD concentrations. Naturally, what concentration you choose depends on how much CBD you want to take and what type of product you are getting it from.
New users are recommended to take 1 to 2 mg daily at first, as this is the typical small dosage for an adult. Depending on your metabolism, body weight, and desired effects, you might want to start with 3 mg, and you can always up the dosage after that as your body gets accustomed to it.
CBD has maximum efficiency when used consistently, much like a daily multivitamin supplement. This effect is due to the fact that it takes a while for your body to adjust to the chemical compounds found in CBD. As there are no psychoactive or dangerous components present in CBD, you can safely up your dosage to find the optimal concentration for you.
If you are a beginner, a tried and tested approach is to start off with 2 or 3 mg of CBD taken daily for a week. If you don’t feel strong benefits after that, you double the dosage and repeat for another week until you find that sweet spot.
2. Types of CBD Products
CBD oil is a healthy and extremely versatile natural substance that can be consumed in numerous different ways to offer a surprising range of health benefits. As expected, different CBD oil product types offer different benefits and come with certain limitations.
For example, some CBD oil products are more potent in terms of CBD concentration while others focus more on ease of use to allow consumers to take them on the go and without hassle. Some products have tasty flavors that add to the overall experience while others offer pure CBD oil that packs a stronger punch. Moreover, some CBD oil products can be used together for a synergistic effect, while others are designed to be taken alongside food or drinks.
In this section, we will examine the specific attributes as well as the benefits and limitations that each CBD oil product type has.
Vaporizers are a unique type of CBD product that function similar to an e-pen or e-cigarette. They work by heating up CBD to a point where it turns from a liquid to a vapor so it can be inhaled. CBD vaporizers are elegant, lightweight, and among the most stylish of CBD products.
There are two parts to a CBD vaporizer: the vaporizer itself, which you only need to buy once, and the CBD “cartridges,” which include the actual CBD oil (these are the refills for the vaporizer). Our own CBD vaporizers are rechargeable via USB, making them handy and convenient to use as there is no battery changing involved. The CBD oil present in the cartridges is specially treated to be easily vaporized by the e-pen’s heat and offers maximum benefits via inhalation.
CBD used via this method is quick acting and much safer for your lungs and oral tract, since CBD vaporizers produce only vapors and no smoke. However, this method of consumption is more complex than most other forms of CBD, as you need to employ an e-pen to make it usable. The use of CBD vaporizers is limited by batteries, so you need to ensure those are charged before use. Additionally, vaporizers can be a little intimidating to beginners as they look like e-cigarettes and people might confuse you with a smoker.
CBD tinctures are one of the most popular and arguably the most versatile form of CBD. There are numerous CBD tincture products to choose from, with different flavors and CBD strengths, and all of them are particularly easy to use. Tinctures trump all other types of CBD products in terms of dosage precision as you can easily increase or decrease your dosage by the drop (all tinctures come with a precise dropper).
CBD tinctures are absorbed sublingually (under your tongue), which means that they act quicker than some other forms of CBD products (like capsules). Additionally, you can mix the CBD tincture with any drink during the day, offering you variety and many ways to take it as you see fit.
Tinctures come in a variety of flavors, including cinnamon, vanilla, and peppermint, and contain added sweeteners to make them more enjoyable. Tinctures are ultra-popular with many people who use CBD on a daily basis, but if you don’t fancy these flavors, you may be better off using CBD capsules or a CBD topical.
While CBD tinctures are more portable than CBD oil and vaporizers (which we will be examining next), they are not as portable or inconspicuous as the capsules and gums we’ve seen above.
CBD Edibles have turned out to be the most popular and tasty form of CBD consumption these days. Not only does it help you with your intake of CBD to find relief and other issues but also serve to be a delicious snack! Extremely convenient to use and carry, the CBD edibles are an excellent form of CBD consumption.
CBD lotions, creams, balms, and other topicals are handy and offer a unique usability that no other CBD product does. With CBD topicals, you can target specific points of stiffness or inflammation on your body and use them with pinpoint accuracy. CBD is absorbable through the skin, making these topicals a great means of directly alleviating an ache you might have.
For example, you can use your CBD cream right on your knee or elbow for joint relief, something you cannot do with any other form of CBD.
However, since topicals are absorbed through the skin, they tend to work slower than most other CBD product types even though they have can have potent CBD concentrations. Additionally, creams, lotions, and balms tend to be slightly more expensive than other CBD products when comparing CBD quantity. This is because they usually contain a variety of other high-quality ingredients not found in traditional CBD products.
People who look for the purest and often strongest CBD products out there often turn to CBD oil. CBD in oil form is typically more concentrated and contains the highest quantity of CBD in the industry when compared to all other CBD product types. CBD oil typically has no (or very few) added flavors or sweeteners and come in a variety of strengths to suit all types of users.
Since CBD oil is more “pure” than other CBD product types, they don’t have any added flavor. This is a desirable characteristic for many people, but some consumers may find the natural flavor undesirable. Like the tinctures, though, this product can be mixed in with other foods (for example, ice cream).
CBD oil completely safe and are designed to be used orally or through a vaporizer, as we will see below. However, for beginners, some CBD oil products might look a bit intimidating. For example, the oil from Real Scientific Hemp Oil are shaped like syringes, making them seem daunting for some people.
CBD concentrate like Dab Wax and shatter can be vaped in an oil rig or wax pen and is great for those who like the smoking cencation for instant relief.
Enjoy CBD in drink for with tea, coffee and syrup that can be added to any of you favorite drinks. The cherry syrup tastes great with sprite.
