Making the Most Out of Your CBD

Cannabidiol aka CBD is all the buzz these days for something that has no buzz. Part of the world is looking to cast judgement assuming anything to do with cannabis means people are trying to get high. Another part has welcomed the non-psychoactive cannabis compound CBD into their lives.

Those who have opened their eyes and minds to the truth about CBD are receiving all kinds of health benefits. From medical patients to seniors, professional athletes, moms, dads, and even children, CBD is helping to provide a better quality of life.

CBD is so effective that the FDA just legalized the first ever drug containing all-natural CBD from marijuana. The U.S. Department of Health has even owned a patent for cannabinoids like CBD with patent #6030507. There’s even more than one way for you to consume CBD.

Below, we’ll look at the most common methods for consuming CBD. After you read about the different way to consume CBD, you can find which one or ones that best suit your needs. Knowing this information can help you get the most out of your CBD. It’s always advised to only purchase CBD that comes with certified lab test results.

Vaping CBD

CBD vape cartridges are a growing trend. Vaping unlike smoking contains less carcinogens. You can purchase different titrates (estimated dosage or milligrams) and flavors of CBD to vape. By itself CBD tends to have a cherry like flavor. However, you can get cartridges that taste like everything from banana and blueberry to cinnamon crunch cereal. CBD  cartridges vary in price but start around $25 for 200 milligrams.

Dabbing CBD

CBD can be dabbed in the form of CBD infused concentrates or CBD isolate. This method is one of the more intense ways to receive CBD. While you won’t get high from dabbing CBD you will intake larger amounts of CBD helping your body with whatever is needed. CBD dabs can be found in most stores that sell CBD products.  If you already have a dab rig you may want to get another one for your CBD products as they can taint the taste of THC products. CBD dabs start at around $45 per gram.

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles vary in price and potency. They can be found in the form of everything from gummies to cookies, brownies, crispy rice treats and more. Just like vaping CBD cartridges consumers are given several options of different titrates (estimated dosages) to choose from. Unlike dabbing or vaping CBD, edibles will take longer to get into your system. Don’t worry about eating to many because the only thing you have to beware of is guilt from all the sweet treats. CBD edibles will not get you high.

Sublingual CBD

Sublingual CBD is perhaps the quickest way to receive the benefits from CBD. On average sublingual absorption takes place within 5-15 minutes. This method of consumption involves placing a liquid oral CBD solution under the tongue to be absorbed into the body. Sublingual tinctures vary in strength and price. An average 200 mg CBD tincture starts around $35 while a 3,200 mg tincture can run even higher than $225. One of our favorites is the CBD tincture from Olo available in California!

CBD Pharma

CBD pharma is growing in popularity. Many people don’t enjoy the taste of CBD and smoking or vaping it isn’t an option for their lifestyle. This is where CBD capsules and tablets are a big win. A 30-count bottle of 25 mg CBD capsules on average runs around $50. The ease and convenience of taking CBD capsules or tablets make this method of consumption one many consumers are turning to. CBD capsules and tablets are available in a wide range of titrates.

Smoking CBD Flowers

CBD rich flowers/buds can be purchased to smoke in bowls or joints. This method of consumption also comes with THC, so you may feel a little buzz. Cannabis strains with high levels of CBD like CBD Shark Shock or Harlequin start at around $20 for 3.5 grams.

CBD Drinks

CBD infused drinks are another exceptional way to get the most out of your CBD. You can find everything from coffee and tea to lemonade, cocktails, and more infused with CBD these days. New York has several businesses that cater to this niche specifically. Thanks to CBD infused sweeteners, the sky’s the limit when it comes to how you can drink your CBD. CBD infused beverages come in a wide variety of flavors, titrates, and prices.

CBD Topicals

CBD topicals are a rapidly growing trend in health and beauty products. CBD infused topicals can do everything from help with pain and inflammation to facilitating beautiful, radiant, healthy skin. Topicals made with CBD come in the form of lotions, balms, salves, creams, oils, and even sprays. Everything from makeup to pain rubs are starting to incorporate CBD.

CBD Isn’t Cheap - Be Sure to Check Your Sources

If you’re like most people making the most out of your CBD means shopping around for the best quality and price. When you find a product that you love be sure not to waste it. CBD isn’t exactly cheap. Every crumb and every drop of CBD add up to make the dosage and the cost. Make sure you don’t waste any.

Don’t just buy the first CBD product you run across either. Only buy CBD products for you or your pet from reputable trusted sources. You can’t just go by word of mouth these days. Ask where the CBD used in products you’re considering buying is sourced from. If they can’t answer this, continue to shop around.

Now that you know about the different methods of consumption for CBD, you can determine which one is right for you. This will help you save money, time, and to get the best overall results by getting the most out of your CBD.
