In recent years CBD (Cannabidiol) has become one of the most popular and interesting natural compounds in alternative medicine.
There are a variety of different ways to consume CBD (Cannabidiol) and in this article we are going to be taking a look at the most popular methods.
Some of these include oral ingested CBD oils, CBD infused edibles, learning about CBD vape products such as CBD concentrates and much more.
Consuming CBD oils orally is one of the most popular methods for ingesting cannabidiol.
Generally speaking there are many different types of hemp and CBD extracts ranging from full-spectrum to broad-spectrum distillate and CBD isolate.
Pure CBD Isolate as you can probably guess from the name only contains Cannabidiol.
Whilst full-spectrum and broad-spectrum extracts contain a range of other cannabinoids and synergistic compounds known to contribute to what is known as the “entourage effect”.
Manufacturers generally use a range of carrier oils, the most popular including hemp seed oil, MCT oil, olive oil and coconut oil.
Cannabidiol infused edibles is another common and very popular method for medicating with CBD.
There are a range of CBD infused edibles on the market currently from CBD cookies to CBD infused chocolate bars, CBD gummy bears, CBD chewing gum, CBD muffins and much more.
Vegan CBD Gummy Bears are a very popular, tasty and convenient way of medicating with CBD.
Edibles have the benefit of largely being able to mask the taste of CBD oil and also provide a delicious novel way of ingesting Cannabidiol in the process.
Vaping CBD is an extremely effective, potent and can be a cost effective method for ingesting Cannabidiol.
CBD Vape E-Liquids are available in a range of different strengths typically from 2.5% to 10%+ and many flavours.
Vaping CBD is one of the quickest ways to medicate with Cannabidiol and comes on almost instantaneously upon inhalation.
Most of the pre-filled CBD Oil Vape Cartridges have what’s called a 510 thread. The cartridges screw onto the typical rechargeable battery type vaporizer.
The CBD Vaping experience has now reached a new level of quality with the addition of specially selected Cannabis derived terpene blends such as OG Kush, Pineapple Express, Super Lemon Haze and many others.
Dabbing CBD is for the experienced and connoisseur CBD user.
Dabbing is a method of consuming and vaporizing CBD concentrates typically using a tool known as a “dab rig” or various CBD dab vape pens which are capable of vaporizing concentrates and extracts.
CBD dabbing opens you up to the world of CBD concentrates, CBD Crumble and Terpene Infused CBD isolate crystal.
Potency generally ranges from 80-95%+ so is extremely potent, can be cost-effective and the range of cannabis derived terpene blends/flavours available these days is amazing.
CBD Flower which is the dried buds/flower of high CBD/low THC hemp plants has become another popular method for ingesting Cannabidiol.
Long gone are the days of the dry seedy hemp plants and are replaced with terpene rich, cured dense floral high CBD buds and flower.
Most of the CBD flower is currently grown in Switzerland and Europe and has varying ranges of CBD levels some as high as 26%+ CBD.
Pressed CBD hashes and Moroccan style pollens are also now available.
Hemp CBD Flower can be smoked in joints or vaporized much in the same way as regular high THC cannabis flower.
Applying CBD topically through the use of CBD infused skin/muscle balms is fast becoming another popular method for receiving the benefits of Cannabidiol especially with sports and fitness enthusiasts.
Individuals are using CBD topically for its natural pain relief and analgesic effects.
There is also a massive market now expanding for CBD infused skincare products from face creams to CBD bath bombs.
