So Many Choices!
If you’re just entering the world of CBD, it can be tough to know where to start. There are so many options. In most instances, too, it’s not exactly the cheapest thing to buy. On top of that, there are a lot of jerks out there selling bunk CBD products that don’t contain quality ingredients that work well. So what do you do? Do you smoke it, rub it on, drop it, swallow a pill, bake with it, or what? I will take you through the best ways to ingest CBD, and some of the specific benefits of each.
Also called tincture, these are usually swallowed directly or mixed into a drink. They promote overall well-being, helping to alleviate with anxiety or inflammation. One major benefit is that it is easier to control the dose with a direct oil than it is with some of the other methods you will see. The oils can come as full-spectrum products that include other lesser known cannabinoids like CGC or CBC, or as isolates that only contain CBD. Pure Hemp has a bunch of different CBD Oil options in terms of strength, as well as flavor options.
This category includes salves, lotions, or eye creams. They are generally more region-specific than oils. If you are experiencing aches in your shoulder, or back pain, or have swelling due to arthritis, this might be the best route for you to take. You can get a body butter and get the best massage you’ll ever have! Facial care products can rejuvenate your skin and alleviate anxiety. It can be a little more difficult to get a consistent dose, so you really have to find a reliable company.
Yet another fantastic way to get a nice dose of CBD is to eat it. You can get gummy bears, or use an oral spray that will help you focus and keep up your energy levels. These are best for people who don’t really like the taste of hemp oil. Gummy bears are sweet and sugary, and any good brand knows how to mask the taste of the CBD inside. The sprays also target the brain more easily by adding certain vitamins or minerals. You can also get a range of cooking oils to add to meals. Again when you cook, it can be hard to get a consistent dosage. If you add 100mg to a dish, you can’t really ensure that the same amount of CBD ends up in every portion of the dish.
The opportunities are endless, and more and more products come out all the time. Don’t be intimidated, just try different approaches and see what helps you best deal with pain!
