CBD Products and How to Take Them

CBD oil is one of many CBD products available

CBD (cannabidiol) products are becoming more widely used as supplements, with many people claiming to see great benefits from adding them to their routine. While CBD products are still relatively new on the market, there are many reasons that people seek to try it. While more medical research needs to be done to prove the benefits, if you’re curious about trying CBD, you may be wondering about which products to choose. Read on to learn more about what products are offered and how to take them.

What CBD Products are Available?

If you’re interested in trying CBD, but don’t know where to start, it’s a great idea to learn about all the products available on the market. Once you know how each product works, you will be able to make a better decision about which one works for your unique needs. Most of the products available fall into the following categories:

  • Drops – these are made of CBD oil and are usually applied with a dropper under the tongue. Some people are turned off by the taste of CBD oil (many people describe it as “earthy”), though flavored oils are available.
  • Pills – if you are not a fan of the flavor of CBD oil, you can take the oil in capsule form. These pills are usually just CBD oil in a gel cap.
  • Dabs – CBD extract can also be inhaled with a vape pen.
  • Gummies –  gummies are a favorite method of taking CBD because they taste great and dosage is easy.
  • Creams – CBD creams can be applied directly to the skin for pain relief and skin benefits.

It’s important to remember that the strength of each product varies, depending on how much CBD they contain, and that some methods of action take longer to have effects than others (i.e. smoking has quicker effects than ingestion). It’s best to start with a low dose of a low strength product and work your way up slowly until you feel the desired effects. You may also need to experiment with brands to find one that suits your needs.

How Are CBD Products Made?

CBD products are made with extracts of hemp plants, which are non-psychoactive. Though marijuana is derived from hemp plants as well, it contains THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is what is responsible for giving you a “high.” CBD products are extracted in a way that results in a product extremely low in THC, so you won’t feel high at all.

If you’re worried about ingesting THC (because of drug tests or personal beliefs), you can find a CBD product labeled “isolate.” These products are extracted to contain only CBD and no trace amounts of THC. Products that contain trace amounts of THC are usually labeled “spectrum” or “full spectrum.” Some people report that full spectrum products tend to have better results, but if you’re trying to avoid THC, an isolate product can still have some benefits.

CBD products come with dosage guidelines so you can get a good idea of how much to take. As long are you are taking the recommended dosage, it’s very uncommon for CBD to show up on a drug test.
