Types of CBD Products
You’re curious about what CBD and CBG products might work for you. You’ve been flooded with information from webpages, salespeople, and the CBD “aficionados” among your friends.
We’re here to tell you there’s no need to be overwhelmed by the world of CBD and CBG products.
First: if CBG doesn’t sound familiar, be sure to stop by our CBG Expert Guide for Hemp Beginners. This should answer any chemistry questions you might have.
Second: familiarize yourself with the three types of CBD extract (full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate) here with our Ultimate Buyers Guide.
Full spectrum CBD is extracted to include all cannabinoids present in the hemp flower, including THC (although only up to 0.3%). Broad spectrum products contain nearly all the cannabinoids present in hemp but do not contain any THC. CBD isolates are exactly what they sound like; they’re products that only contain CBD, isolated.
Determining the Right CBD Product for You
There is no shortage of choices! You have vaping products, oils, topical creams, edibles and more all at your fingertips.
Each of these have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Inhalation is the fastest method of CBD absorption into the body. This can be achieved by smoking the flower or using CBD vaping cartridges. However, this option demands the upkeep of a pipe, rolling papers, or a vape pen (and is somewhat limited by where you’re allowed to vape).
Edibles are fairly versatile given that they can be consumed anywhere anytime; however, ingestion is the slowest method of CBD absorption.
Another option is topical CBD and CBG products. Topicals will come in the form of a lotion or ointment that can be applied directly to the skin. The cannabinoid receptors in the skin of the area of application will experience that sweet calming effect associated with CBD.
These are typically used for a specific purpose such as relaxing a particular muscle, relief for isolated aches and pains, or even a beauty regimen. You can find anything from CBD facial moisturizers to lip balms to salves and skin-care creams.
CBD Tinctures and Oils
Tincture oils, on the other hand, provide a much broader experience to the body. When applied sublingually (a five-dollar word that means ‘under the tongue’), a tincture is quickly absorbed through the tongue and into the bloodstream.
This brings a fast-acting relaxation and calmness to the whole body. Flavored tinctures can also be quite tasty! Just check out all these flavor options (wink).
Another advantage to tinctures is their versatility. In addition to sublingual application, you can simply add the CBD or CBG solution to your favorite foods or drinks. In fact, check out our ultimate guide for making CBD cocktails.
