Tinctures, topicals, edibles, isolates, full spectrum, pens, shots, capsules, CBD products come in many forms. If you’re new to CBD, it can seem overwhelming. How do you know what’s right for you? Which form of CBD is best suited for your lifestyle?
The important thing to remember is, with so many known health benefits, there’s almost always a CBD product for you. CBD has been shown (across its many different forms) to help with anxiety, depression, muscle aches, joint pain, and sleep.
Let’s get started with a breakdown of CBD forms, and help you better decide which CBD form is right for your needs.
Which CBD Form is Best For You?
Tinctures and Edibles: Easily Adjust Your Dosage, Experience Multiple Benefits
Tinctures are convenient, have a long shelf life, and are absorbed easily when taken under the tongue. For those new to CBD, tinctures are a great way to start, because the dosing can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of drops taken. So, you can start small and increase gradually until you’ve found a dose that works well for you.
Cannabis tinctures are a time-tested and proven form of CBD. They have been used throughout history for pain relief. Prior to cannabis prohibition, and years before over-the-counter pain medication, CBD tinctures helped relieve pain naturally. Tinctures were used for headaches, muscle aches, joint pain, and even gout.
Much like tinctures, edibles are great for those newer to CBD, because you know exactly how much CBD you are ingesting. You can also see if the CBD option is full-spectrum or isolate.
Simply put, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD that’s pulled from the plant and devoid of all other ingredients. Full-spectrum CBD, on the other hand, contains all the natural chemicals found in the whole plant, which include various other cannabinoids, essential oils, and terpenes.
Edibles come in a variety of flavorings, so if you have sensitive taste buds, you’ll be able to find a flavor you enjoy. Our CBD Hard Candies and CBD Cube Gummies come in a variety of flavor combinations with isolate and full spectrum options.
Topicals: For Joint Pain Sufferers and Active Lifestyles
Topicals are an excellent choice for people who live a very active lifestyle and for people who struggle with arthritis or any type of joint pain. Most over-the-counter topical pain creams only mask your pain, whereas CBD topicals interact differently with your body.
Reliable topical CBD products can make the pain go away for a certain time period, says Matthew Halpert, an instructor of immunology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. That’s likely why one of the biggest uses for topical CBD products is for musculoskeletal complaints. A 2019 report from the Arthritis Foundation found that 79% of the 2,600 arthritis patients surveyed had considered using CBD or had already used it. Twenty-nine percent said they currently used it for arthritis symptoms; among those using CBD, 55% used a topical product applied to the joints.
So if you haven’t tried a topical CBD cream for pain relief, there is ample evidence to support its effectiveness. Another great thing about topicals is the ability to mix in some aromatherapy. Our Remedi Plus Soothe Cooling CBD Topical cream is infused with menthol and peppermint oil to help relax your mind and your aches.
Diffuser Pens: Calm Cravings, Find Relaxation
Our CBD Diffuser Pens come in two flavor profiles and are infused with 125mg of CBD Isolate.
The vanilla green tea blend and minty, ylang ylang blend ensure relaxation with every inhale. Diffuser pens are a perfect option for people looking to ease other cravings, the Remedi Green Tea/ Vanilla Diffuser Pen contains no nicotine or other addictive chemicals. Each pen is loaded with 300 puffs. All-natural, true water vapor, diffuser pen.
Shots: A Boost of Energy, Or a Cool Down
CBD Shots can offer both relaxation or an energy kick based on the ingredient combination. As with Edibles and Tinctures, you’ll know how much CBD you are ingesting.
So if you’re looking to get away from a caffeine addiction, CBD shots might be exactly what you need. Our Nano CBD Shots are a quick, easy to consume and made from all-natural, energy inducing ingredients to support mind and body.
Or, if you’re needing something to take the edge off at the end of the day, you could try our Nano Relax. The combination of CBD, Melatonin, Valerian Root, and Tryptophan will help you ease into the evening and sleep well, naturally.
Capsules: Discreet, Travel Friendly
Like a daily vitamin supplement, capsules are simple to take, and discreet. If you already take vitamins or supplements, just add a daily CBD capsule into your routine.
As with edibles and tinctures, the dosage is straightforward.
Capsules are ideal for people who travel frequently or are simply on-the-go. There’s no chance for leaks or spills in your bag. Pop a bottle in your purse, laptop bag or duffle bag and head out.
If the taste of CBD oils (even flavored ones) isn’t appealing, capsules are the way to go.
