What Are the Different Types of CBD?
Did you know that more than 33% of people in America have tried CBD products at some point? The great thing about CBD is that there are many types of CBD available to try. For that reason, there is sure to be a type of CBD that will fit your tastes and lifestyle.
But where should you start when it comes to all the different forms of CBD? Should you start with edibles or topicals? Is full-spectrum CBD better than CBD isolate?
Keep reading and learn more about the different kinds of CBD products.
Types of CBD Oil
CBD oil is one of the most popular forms of CBD. Taking CBD in this form is also very easy. You can drizzle it over your meals, add it to your favorite drinks, or put it under your tongue so your body will absorb it sublingually.
Whatever the case, there are three main types of CBD oil that you will need to choose from: full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Full-spectrum CBD is one of the most popular forms of CBD oil and it is also the least filtered. But being the least filtered is not a bad thing and it might even be especially beneficial.
Full-spectrum CBD oil not only has CBD but also contains other products from the cannabis or hemp plant. This type of CBD oil usually comes with plant compounds such as plant fats and terpenes. There are also other types of cannabinoids in this oil including THC.
However, there are only trace amounts of THC in this oil, less than 0.03%, and it will not get you high.
Broad-Spectrum and CBD isolate
Broad-spectrum CBD oil, on the other hand, is very similar to full-spectrum CBD oil but it is a bit more filtered. Broad-spectrum CBD oil does contain plant fats, oils, and terpenes along with certain cannabinoids, but there should be no THC.
However, you will want to double-check this when buying broad-spectrum CBD because some brands do include trace amounts of THC. Finally, there is CBD isolate. CBD isolate can come in the form of oil but it may also be crystalline.
It is the most filtered type of CBD that you can get your hands on. It needs to go through a rigorous filtration process to remove everything except for the CBD. It does not have fats or terpenes.
When it comes to the benefits of CBD products, CBD edibles have many. Some people don’t like using CBD oil because they might not like the taste. If this sounds like you, CBD edibles might be the right type of CBD for you.
The great thing about CBD edibles is that they come in all different shapes, flavors, and strengths. You will find that the majority of CBD edibles come in the form of some kind of candy. CBD gummy candy is especially popular.
You won’t taste any of the CBD itself when eating the gummies but you will still be able to reap all of the CBD benefits. CBD edibles may also come in other forms such as cookies, brownies, mixes, and so on. That way, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the right kind of CBD edible for you.
CBD gummies can also vary in how potent they are. If you’ve never tried CBD gummies before (or CBD in general) you should be careful and avoid eating too many gummies. While you can’t overdose on CBD, you may experience some unpleasant CBD side effects if you accidentally eat too many gummies.
Some common CBD side effects include fatigue, dizziness, and an upset stomach. You shouldn’t be too worried if you do experience some CBD side effects since they will go away on their own. Before you eat any CBD gummies, you should always read the dosing instructions on the packaging they came in.
That way, you will be able to find the right dose for your body weight. This will reduce the chance of you experiencing any side effects so you can have a more pleasant CBD experience. Also, have patience when trying gummies since they can take between 30 minutes and an hour to kick in.
Most people think that you have to vape or inject CBD in some way for it to work, but that isn’t necessarily true. CBD topicals are for your skin and they are also full of health benefits. CBD topicals come in many different forms such as lotions, salves, balms, and so on.
The great thing about topicals is that there is no wrong way to use them. Since CBD is a powerful antioxidant, it has the ability to reduce inflammation in the body. This is ideal if you have an inflamed patch of skin or if you think that your joints are inflamed.
While CBD can’t cure any condition, it can certainly help to soothe inflammation. When using topicals, you will want to massage them thoroughly into your skin. This will increase the blood flow in the area and it will help the CBD to penetrate your skin barrier so it can enter your bloodstream.
CBD topicals are also great for your skincare routine. By using CBD topicals, you will find that your skin will be softer and more vibrant in no time.
