There are so many CBD products and companies out there, it can be overwhelming choosing the right one for you. Do you choose Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum CBD? Would you rather consume a CBD edible, smoke a CBD vape, or perhaps you need a CBD topical for an external application? Read on CBD family! We’ve got your answers covered!
Step 1 – Choosing between Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum CBD
All CBD products, regardless of the company, will either have Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum Hemp CBD as their active ingredient. It’s important to know their differences, so you can decide which one is for you.
Our CBD come from Industrial Hemp plants grown in Boulder, Pueblo, and the Eastern plains of Colorado, and have been certified by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Once the plants have grown to peak maturity, they are then harvested, dried, and then sent to an extraction center for processing. Using sub-zero, cold temperature ethanol extraction technology, the hemp plant will either be processed into Full Spectrum CBD or into Broad Spectrum CBD. Ethanol extraction is one of the cleanest methods for human consumption, and when done at extremely cold temperatures removes unwanted chlorophyll.
Full Spectrum Hemp CBD
After the hemp plant goes through the first round of extraction, what’s left is an oil full of different cannabinoids like CBD. (Did you know the hemp plant has hundreds of cannabinoids?)
This oil that is left is our Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil, that is then taken and either added into MCT Oil to make a tincture, or added with other products such as Full Spectrum CBD gummies.
Full Spectrum CBD products are perfect for those looking for an entourage effect you get with the different cannabinoids. It’s important to note these products can have no more than 0.3% THC in them, and have an earthy flavor.
Broad Spectrum Hemp CBD
After the first round of extraction, the hemp oil is taken through an even further extraction process to remove the THC cannabinoid. You still get a range of cannabinoids plus terpenes!
These products are ideal for anyone who is sensitive to THC, or those who can’t have any traces of THC in their system. They still offer the entourage effects you get with full spectrum, but without any chances of ingesting THC.
Step 2 – Choosing a type of CBD product
Now that we’ve given some thought on choosing Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum, there’s the question on how you want to consume your CBD?
There are several different consumption methods available that include ingesting, smoking, and applying a topical. Each one has their advantages, so let’s break them down!
CBD Oils / Tinctures
CBD oils and tinctures have become the most popular ways to consume your CBD. They can easily be added into beverages and can be dropped onto food. The fastest way to feel the effects is to place the oil under your tongue and hold it there for 30 – 60 seconds before swallowing.
Fast onset of effects
Lasts 4 – 6 hours
Edibles / Ingestion
When you ingest your CBD you get the longest and most consistent of its effects. There are tasty treats like CBD gummies and lollipops you can choose from, or if you’re looking for something without the sugar there are CBD capsules available.
30 – 60 mins onset of effects (depending on metabolism can take longer)
Lasts 6 – 8 hours
Vape / Smoke
Some people enjoy smoking their CBD. The effects come on extremely fast, which is perfect when you find yourself needing a dose of CBD right away. CBD Vape Pens are convenient and easy to use. People looking to quit smoking find these are great tools to help!
Extremely fast onset
Lasts 1 – 4 hours
Topicals / Lotions
CBD lotions and other topicals are great when you need something externally. Rub onto a joint, on onto an area where you need help with deep muscle tissue. There’s also products like CBD Massage Oil that helps relax the skin, and gives your massage an extra boost!
It’s not as clear how long it lasts, but you can apply liberally.
Step 3 – Choosing the right CBD dosage
Now that you’ve figured out what type of CBD product you want to use, it’s time to figure out the right dosing! For people new to CBD, it’s recommended to start with a smaller dose and then gradually increase until you find your desired effects.
1. Start with a low dose of 5 – 10mg CBD, either 2 or 3 times a day.
Do this for an entire week, and be sure to keep notes on how you feel, your reactions, and your appetite. If you haven’t found the desired effects you’re looking for, try increasing the dose.
2. Increase your dose amount by 5 – 10mg, and continue taking 2 or 3 times a day.
Again do this for an entire week and be sure to note your feelings, mood, and appetite during this time.
3. Repeat the second step until you find the right dosage for you!
