CBD Product Variations: Which one is right for me?
CBD can be found just about anywhere in anything. In only one day of running errands, you can find CBD in several locations. You will discover CBD gummies and CBD gum at your local gas station check-out counter, maybe at your chiropractor appointment; you might find CBD Topical Pain Reliever Cream while going up and down the aisles at your grocery store- you may find CBD Shampoo and CBD Conditioner, CBD Coffee or CBD Toothpaste.
Manufacturers worldwide have discovered the health benefits of CBD and are capitalizing on the CBD Boom that has happened in the last few years. This means you will continue to find CBD in products everywhere.
So, what does this mean to you when CBD is available everywhere, in so many products? How do you know which products to buy? How do you know which products are safe?
Let’s take a look first at the first question:
How do you know which CBD products to buy?
CBD Products are broken into a few categories. Most of the products fall into one of these categories.
EDIBLES, TOPICALS, TINCTURES, BEVERAGES, VAPES
You will find any CBD product you ingest through your mouth in the edible category, like CBD gummies, CBD candies, CBD gum, and CBD chocolate. The list could go on and on because manufacturers can quite literally put CBD into anything you eat, consume and digest, and they have! This gives you an idea…
When you ingest an edible CBD product, it is digested through your stomach and takes 30 minutes to begin to work, and lasts for 4-6 hours. CBD edibles are for people taking CBD for “situational anxiety or situational pain” It is for the college student who has a major test coming up. They need to stay calm and focused. It is for the person going to the gym to do a heavy workout and are looking for some pain relief.
CBD Topicals are anything you put on your skin or body. This includes CBD Topical Pain Creams, CBD Roll-On, CBD Shampoo, CBD Conditioner, CBD Anti-Aging Cream, CBD Moisturizer, and CBD Lip Balms. These products are absorbed into your skin through your dermis and epidermis layers. From there, they begin to work on the area applied. If you are using a CBD topical cream, it can take just minutes to work and last for hours. However, if you are applying a CBD face cream, that will take longer to see the results, typically about 30 days.
CBD TINCTURE OILS:
CBD Tinctures Oils are the way to get the most long-lasting effect of CBD. When ingesting CBD tincture oils, users drop the CBD tincture oil under their tongue and hold it for about 30 seconds, long enough for the CBD tincture oil to absorb into the blood vessels under your tongue. From there, the CBD searches out your CB1 and CB2 receptors within your Endocannabinoid System and restores balance into your body, and regulates your organs, central nervous system, immune system, reproductive system, bones, muscles, and brain. The CBD covers you for 24 hours until your next use.
CBD tincture oil compounds in your body as you continue to take it day after day. That means it builds up, and your body uses it as needed. It typically takes 7-10 days to see the benefits of CBD tincture oil.
CBD taken through beverages are much like edibles. They are digested through the stomach and take about 30 minutes to work, and last for 4-6 hours. One of the benefits of consuming CBD in a beverage is that it simply tastes great! CBD Coffee is a great way to consume your daily dose of CBD while enjoying a great cup of coffee.
CBD vape goes into your system quickly, and you can feel the effects within minutes, but it doesn’t last long. It is a great product when you need to feel immediate relief from stress, anxiety, or pain; however, other products will last longer.
As you can see, choosing the delivery methods you will use to get CBD into your body is a very personal decision and based solely on your personal preference.
