CBD (cannabidiol) has grown in popularity in recent years, due to growing interest and scientific research in its possible health benefits. But, the sheer number of CBD products can be confusing to those who wish to try it.
Before you buy any CBD products, there are a few things to consider, including the type, potency, and manufacturer.
CBD isolate only contains CBD; it contains no other compounds, such as THC. If you’re concerned about a trace amount of THC showing up on a drug test, CBD isolate is a good choice. However, some research indicates that broad or full-spectrum CBD may have an even more beneficial effect.
Broad-spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids and compounds, such as terpenes. However, while broad-spectrum CBD generally doesn’t contain any THC, some products may contain a trace amount.
Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, compounds, and terpenes, but they also contain a small quantity of THC, less than 3% as required by federal law. However, the tiny amount of THC is not enough to get anyone ‘high.’
CBD products are also manufactured as oils, tinctures, edibles, and topicals. While oils and tinctures are the best-known forms of CBD, edibles are becoming more popular. While the effect of edibles takes longer than sublingual oils or tinctures, they taste better.
CBD topicals are a great way to relieve muscle aches and pains, and CBD is also beneficial for conditions like acne and eczema. The soothing, healing effects of CBD promote wellness and beauty, inside and out.
