CBD is everywhere. There’s no denying it. The potential benefits and consumer feedback are quickly turning this cannabinoid into a popular product people are looking to buy.
As a result, new products are continually popping up on store shelves, to the point that there’s a huge inventory right now. This is great. Who doesn’t love choice? But, it’s also confusing.
With so many CBD products on the market, it’s hard to distinguish what you actually want. Arbor Vita8 is here to help.
Picking the perfect CBD product
You’ll most likely have to try a few different CBD products before you decide which is best for you. They all have pros and cons to usage, but many are discreet and fast-acting, which means you don’t have to put yourself into an uncomfortable situation to enjoy how CBD makes you feel.
Popular CBD products*
Here are some of the most popular types of CBD products on the market today.
This popular way to ingest CBD is perfect for those wanting quick absorption. Tinctures, also known as drops, go under the tongue. A few drops, held in place for a few seconds, hit your bloodstream faster as they’re absorbed through the lining of your mouth and your tongue. You swallow the rest of the dosage and you’re good to go.
Not so different from a tincture, CBD extract is handy to have around if you prefer adding CBD to other products. It mixes well with food and beverages, and is a perfect additive to your favorite drink, smoothie, sauce, or salad dressing.
If you treat CBD more like a supplement, you may prefer to swallow a CBD capsule each day with your other vitamins. This is a great way to remember to take your CBD regularly and do so discreetly.
The ideal feature of a CBD inhaler is dose control. If you want to make sure you’re getting the same amount of CBD each time you use a product, inhalers measure out doses with each puff. You can stay in control while using an everyday product.
For a more “traditional” approach to CBD, you can smoke CBD flower. Usually sold as pre-rolls, CBD flower will look just like a joint. It may smell just like a joint as well, but it’s not marijuana. It’s perfectly legal, however the ease with which it can get mistaken for the other stuff may make it the perfect way to enjoy CBD at home.
When it’s time to eat your CBD, gummies are the most popular format. They come in a variety of flavors, and let you have a sweet treat that is also full of CBD.
If gummy candy isn’t your thing, there’s also CBD chocolate for that sweet tooth.
A sugar-free option when it comes to eating CBD, try CBD gum. Like nicotine gum, it’s a great way to introduce CBD into your system, slowly, over a longer period of time.
It’s amazing how many CBD beverages there are out there now. You can start the day with a CBD coffee, refresh in the afternoon with CBD sparkling water or a CBD energy drink, and celebrate at night with CBD alcohol. You’re covered no matter what you’re thirsty for.
Using CBD topically is another popular way to enjoy the cannabinoid. This is because of the potential anti-inflammatory properties the compound has. Applying it directly to sore muscles and joints may provide relief, according to many current users. Lotions go on best over large areas to moisturize and soothe.
For the ability to target specific sore spots, CBD balm is a great topical option. It’s a thicker product, so works best in smaller areas, but it absorbs quickly and provides an extra boost of hydration as well.
A perfect addition to a massage, CBD oil can help soothe the entire body. See if your local masseuse offers it in lieu of regular massage oil, or grab some to use with your special someone.
