CBD or Cannabidiol as it is scientifically known is a chemical found in the Cannabis plant. Preliminary studies show that it holds a lot of promise as a treatment for health conditions ranging from the mundane to the serious, like certain cancers and Alzheimer’s disease.
Unfortunately though because the chemical is extracted from Cannabis it has a bad reputation. Despite open calls for its legalization from scientific bodies, lawmakers are refusing to give people the green light to use it in some states and countries.
In places where it is legal, this post will tell you about some of the best products you can buy:
CBD oil is the most popular Cannabidiol product. The experts over at CBD Incubator stress the importance of making sure that when you do buy this oil, you buy genuine products. Unfortunately, a large number of retailers particularly on e-commerce marketplaces like Amazon sell fake extractions and oils, some of which are dangerous. One of the best ways to make sure that what you are buying is genuine is to read the seller’s reviews. If a seller’s reviews are positive across the board then it is a good sign that their products are authentic and genuine. Always filter a seller’s reviews so that the lowest ones appear first. Typically, you will only see the most relevant reviews if you do this which more often than not just so happen to be the best ones.
Edible CBD products are worth looking into as well, especially if you want a mild buzz. Many edible CBD products contain small amounts of THC, THC being the psychoactive chemical in Cannabis responsible for producing the plant’s popular high. If you are going to eat anything that contains THC then you need to make sure that your tolerance is high enough to be able to comfortably deal with the high. Anyone that has ever eaten edible THC products before will be able to tell you that the high is very intense and unlike the one produced by smoking marijuana.
If the average person saw hemp flower they would most definitely think it was dried marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are two types of Cannabis, so they look very similar. It is just that hemp contains more CBD while marijuana contains more THC. People use CBD therapeutically and THC recreationally. That being said, of course, THC holds a lot of medical promise too. Hemp flower is a great CBD product to try if you enjoy smoking marijuana but want to smoke Cannabis for health reasons and do not want to get high. Their taste and smell are very similar, and visually they are identical.
Dissolvable CBD tablets have become very popular over the course of the last several years. One of the reasons that these tablets are so popular is that they can be used very subtly. In other words, users do not have to worry about people knowing they are using Cannabis products. You can drop these tablets in your bottles of water or soda and drink them on the go. When you drink commercial CBD drinks, the packaging gives away the fact you are consuming the chemical. As stated already there is still a stigma around this chemical and not everybody is comfortable with other people knowing that they use it.
As mentioned in the previous section, it is possible to buy CBD drinks. CBD sodas are most popular because they also contain caffeine and sugar and are therefore tasty but healthy drinks (because of their CBD content, not the presence of caffeine and sugar). Individuals interested in CBD energy drinks do need to remember that the aforementioned chemicals and substances are also present and as such should adjust their dosage and consumption so they are not overusing it; overuse of these can be very bad for your health.
Chewable candies are a good way of consuming CBD, assuming you like sweets; chewable candies are no different from other types of edible CBD it’s just that they are very popular, which is why they have their own section of this post dedicated to them. Because they are so popular these products tend to sell for a lot of money and are therefore not easy to find in places where CDB is in short supply. You can do yourself a favor and ensure you get hold of them by shopping online.
Do you want to use CBD? If the answer to that question is yes then you need to find a product that contains it that you are comfortable using; not doing your research before shopping means you will probably end up buying something that isn’t perfect. You can use the guidance given here to find the right product.
