How to get the best results with CBD


CBD is now becoming a hot topic and item in America.  You can see CBD kios and stores at malls and airports across the United States.  But not all CBD is the same. Find out below how to get the best results with CBD.

First thing first is that CBD comes in a variety of strengths and types.  The main three types of CBD on the market is Full Spectrum CBD, CBD Isolate and Broad Spectrum CBD.  Each of these has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Full Spectrum CBD is one of the most effective types of CBD on the market.  It contains CBD, terpenes, and various cannabinoids. With all of these combined, it gives you a more potent delivery called the “Entourage Effect”.  The sum of all these combined is stronger than the individual. Full Spectrum CBD contains 0.3% THC or less. Even though the amount is small compared to marijuana, this can possibly show up on a drug test.  Please keep that in mind if your job requires this.

The second type of CBD is CBD Isolate.  This is generally pure CBD (99%). This does not contain the other cannabinoids or terpenes.  CBD Isolates are used more in topical applications. CBD Isolates are preferred because it should not contain any THC.  This is preferred by people who get drug tested.  

The third type is Broad Spectrum CBD.  This is similar to Full Spectrum CBD but without the THC.  So you get all the benefits of the Entourage Effect minus the THC.  While this is ideal for some users, Broad Spectrum CBD is harder to come by as it is more expensive to manufacture.  The prices are generally quite higher than the other two.

Once you have found your specific type of CBD, now you will need to see how much CBD strength you would need.  For example CBD cigarettes comes in a variety of different strengths. The higher the strength, the more CBD you are inhaling.  The strength is dependent dependent on how your body reacts to CBD. For some, a small dosage is enough while others require a higher percentage.

The third thing to consider is how you administrator the CBD.  There are a variety of different ways such as taking it orally (known as a tincture).  You can take it as a capsule or gummy bear. You can apply it topically (lotion or balm).  You can use it in a vape, cigarette with CBD, or preroll.

If you are looking for the fastest results, smoking CBD is the preferred method.  Using a tincture or candy, CBD’s potency is lost through the digestive system. When you smoke CBD, it is inhaled directly into your lungs.  Your lungs contains thousands of blood vessels that can absorb it. This is obviously a good solution if you smoke.

If you are looking to pinpoint the effectiveness of CBD onto a body part than a topical solution is required.  Many people use CBD creams to help manage pain. This can be used on any part of the body or hands.
