You’ve been checking around on the internet for quite a while, and this time, you’ve finally decided to give cannabidiol (CBD) a try. So you give your nearest retailer a visit, check out the stocks piled up on the shelves, and immediately get overwhelmed by all the choices. The online version is not a different story either. In fact, as piles upon piles of web pages advertising their own CBD products are loaded up by your web browser, somehow, you get even more confused. Which leaves you wondering: Where to begin? How do I find out which works best for me? And do I really need all these different types of CBD products?
If you find yourself asking the same questions, then worry not, as you’ve come to the right place. We’ve made a definitive guide that you can use for your CBD adventures (or misadventures), guaranteeing that your choice will be as clear as the purest CBD oil available on the market.
Before we dive any deeper though, a quick introduction is needed. CBD is one of the many compounds found in cannabis plants, including the hemp strain. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t exhibit psychoactive effects, and has gained popularity due to the various health benefits it presents to the table.
A common problem with those who turn to opioids for pain relief is that it poses a lot of risks and dangers for its users. Medicine has downsides as well, as it can be addictive. CBD poses none of these risks, and can even be a powerful treatment for more common issues such as anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain.
So with the introduction out of the way, here are four of the most popular ways to try CBD:
1. CBD Capsules – Essentially, these are just CBD oil, albeit in pill form, with each capsule containing a specific amount or dosage of CBD inside.
Convenient and easy to carry around, this type of CBD is one of the simplest ways to have your daily CBD intake. There are downsides, however, such as not being able to modify your dose due to each pill containing a certain amount.
2. CBD Vapes and edibles – One of the more extremely popular ways to take CBD, vaping is usually used for recreation and as a way to lessen one’s smoking habits. Offering a straight shot to your blood stream via your lungs, CBD vapes help give you instantaneous effects, making it even more convenient to use. Edibles, on the other hand, come in the form of sweets and gummy candies, making the effect last for around six to eight hours.
A common con with vaping, however, is that it may get confusing to use. You have to charge it, learn how to use it, and know where to buy parts and vape juices. Nevertheless, vapes remain as one of the most popular ways to intake CBD.
3. CBD oil – Perhaps the most standard and common form of CBD, CBD tinctures are simply pure bottled CBD oil.
Simple, effective and flexible, most companies got their start in the industry through CBD oil. One example is Diamond CBD, which operates through its parent company PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTCMTKS:POTN).
Currently, Diamond CBD is the largest CBD manufacturer in all of America, and its popularity gave way for POTN to distribute its recognizable brands to more than 10,000 retail stores in the U.S. As a result, Diamond CBD is able to double up its revenues on a monthly basis.
Its parent company is also not far behind. POTN has exhibited massive success in the industry, curating a strong foothold in the market.
To date, Diamond CBD’s wide selection of products includes CBD oils, vapes, gummies, drinks, and even supplements for both people and their pets. Its CBD oil, however, is what put it on the map, essentially acting as the company’s miraculous poster child with various health benefits.
4. CBD balms and lotions – Almost as common as CBD oil tinctures, CBD balms and lotions gained popularity due to the way they are used. Similar to lotions and balms, you simply apply it to your body without any ingestion needed, making it a popular first CBD product for people.
Diamond CBD’s selection also includes CBD balms and lotions, which are becoming an increasingly popular way to help relieve chronic and muscle pain. They are also commonly used as a way to relax after a long and tiring day.
If you are fairly new to CBD, being introduced to it might be more overwhelming than you can expect. However, its vast product line can also work for your advantage, as there will always be a CBD product that will cater to both your wants and needs.
