CBD continues to be a hot topic of conversation. Studies show the many benefits it can offer for a variety of health conditions. No matter where you stand, it’s hard to ignore the growing number of testimonials from satisfied users. So how is CBD helping so many people find relief for such a wide array of health concerns? The answers come in many forms. From lotions to gummies, CBD products are all the rage. You may find there to be slight variations in how quickly CBD is absorbed into the body among the various forms. However, choosing a particular form ultimately comes down to your own preferences. Let’s take a look at what’s out there so you can decide which products are right for you.
Capsules, Soft-Gels, and Pills
Since the FDA does not yet have an official recommended serving size for CBD, taking CBD in the form of capsules or pills are an easy way for you to ensure you are getting the proper recommended dosage. Capsules and pills take all of the guesswork and hassle out of your daily CBD intake. Some users prefer this method because it’s quick, while others simply don’t enjoy the taste of ingesting the oil alone or on food. There are also those that would rather not deal with the possible mess and cleanup you may experience with other forms of CBD. It truly all comes down to personal preference.
You will find you have a choice between capsules, soft-gels, and pills. However, you will not find Raw CBD or Full Spectrum CBD offered in pill form. This is due to their inability to be compressed into a solid form, so must be in a capsule instead.
It is typically recommended that you take your CBD supplements around the same time each day for optimal results. You will also find you have many options when choosing the strength. Our Endoca Hemp Oil CBD Capsules are all-natural and come in 3% and 15% strength. Each capsule is 10mg. Our Hemplucid CBD Soft-Gels come in your choice of strengths ranging from 15mg-75mg and will typically last 6-8 hours.
CBD Concentrates are a popular way to consume CBD and offer a wide range of choices. So what is a concentrate? When you separate CBD from a high-CBD, low-THC hemp plant, you get a CBD Concentrate. The type of concentrate you end up with is determined by the way the CBD was extracted. Here are a few examples of CBD concentrates:
Shatter and Isolate
CBD comes in a form known as shatter and can be available in a wide variety of flavors. CBD shatter is basically a form of CBD isolate- CBD that has been separated from the rest of the cannabinoids. Isolating CBD ensures you now have the purest form possible. The isolate is then terpenes to create shatter. Think of shatter as flavored crystal forms of CBD that are known to help manage pain, reduce inflammation, and help ease anxiety and insomnia. If this sounds like an intriguing option to try, our CBD Lion Shatter comes in eight flavor choices, such as sour tangerine, and can be used for low-temperature vaping.
Dabs are a form of CBD wax and are much more potent than most forms of CBD. You will find that you only need to use a tiny amount of wax because of its purity and the effects will be felt immediately. If you are interested in trying this high potency form of CBD, CBDFx Concentrated Dabs are THC-free and will provide you with approximately 20 servings.
CBD edibles can offer a fun and easy way to help you manage a variety of symptoms and conditions. Although it may take longer for the effects to kick in, the benefits of edibles can last two to four hours longer than if you were to vape with a CBD oil. It can take approximately 20 minutes to two hours to feel the effects of CBD edibles, dependent upon the dosage and the amount of food you have previously eaten.
Our CBD Lion Gummies are made with organic and vegan ingredients and have an amazing peach flavor. Each gummy ring contains 30mg of CBD oil and is always a favorite. We also carry Koi CBD Sour Tropical Fruit Gummies, which have the perfect blend of sweet and sour while providing 10mg of CBD in each candy. If you aren’t a big fan of sours, we also offer the Koi CBD Tropical Fruit Gummies. Another favorite edible is the CBDFx Gummies with Turmeric and Spirulina. Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Spirulina is high in calcium, amino acids, potassium, iron, and B vitamins. Eating a gummy has never offered you so many benefits! We even carry the first 100% vegan, Full Spectrum CBD Gummy Bear. You won’t find GMO, corn syrup, or artificial sweeteners in these little guys! Each piece contains 5mg of organically grown CBD oil and won’t disappoint.
If you’re more of a drink enthusiast rather than a candy lover, you can find CBD in a lemonade option. The CBDFx Chill Shot contains 20mg of Full Spectrum CBD plus amino acids and fatty acids. What more could you ask for in your lemonade?
Tinctures are a quick way to get your daily intake of CBD. CBD tinctures are taken orally by dropper or spoonful or they can be placed under your tongue to be absorbed quickly. When used under your tongue, you may feel results within 15-45 minutes. You may also want to try adding it to a beverage or mixing it in with your food. High-proof alcohol is used to soak and store hemp when creating a CBD tincture, providing the user with more intense effects. The high concentration of alcohol helps speed up the tincture’s absorption into your system and expands its shelf life.
If you’re interested in trying this method, we offer a wide variety of choices. The CBDFx MCT Oil Tincture is offered in three strengths, ranging from 500-1500mg. You’ll only need one dropper-full a day and can use alone or with food. If you prefer flavored drops, you’ll want to take a look at the Koi Naturals. The Naturals come in strengths ranging from 250-1000mg and in flavors such as lemon-lime.
Oils are made from extracted CBD that is mixed with a carrier oil. Typically, coconut or hemp seed oil is used as the carrier oil. You’ll find there are many uses for this form of CBD.
CBD for Pets
Oils are very versatile and offer great benefits for your pets as well as you. CBD can offer the same anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits their owners experience. Studies have also shown pets can use CBD oil to reduce their stress and anxiety level just as we can. There has been a tremendous amount of success with using CBD oil to help control seizures and spasms in pets as well. You’ll find different strengths to fit your pet’s needs from the CBDFx Pet Series.
If you’re new to the world of vaping, prepare your taste buds. We carry a variety of flavored vape juices blended with CBD oil in your choice of strength. If you are not a fan of the supplement or tincture forms, this option allows you to enjoy the benefits of CBD, while vaping with your favorite flavor. If you already have a bottle of your go-to flavor, we also carry a vape oil additive with CBD. The additive comes in strengths from 60-500mg and can be added directly to your e-liquid or taken orally.
A topical CBD is always great to have on hand and is offered in several forms. Topical CBD can be beneficial in providing relief to muscle and joint pain as well as helping to reduce inflammation. Topical CBD has been very successful when used to calm eczema, psoriasis, and even acne. The Hemp Salve is an amazing blend of coconut oil, lemon, vanilla, and vitamin E and perfect for your irritated skin. Using a cream with antioxidants can also provide quick relief to arthritis without the need to wait for a pill to take effect. It’s a great alternative for those who prefer not to inhale CBD. If you’re experiencing dry or cracked lips, you’ll want to invest in one of our healing CBD lip balms. The Hemplucid CBD Lip Balm comes in 50mg and provides moisture from ingredients like almond oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and vitamin E.
