DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE CBD
Now that you understand how CBD works, you might be wondering what CBD product is right for you? With so many options available, the answer lies in your own personal preference. But here are some of the most popular CBD delivery methods and how you might use them.
Take a look at our product guide to find the perfect product to fit your needs!
Understanding the Spectrums
Choosing your preferred CBD delivery method is only part of the process. When you check the labels of CBD products, you’ll notice that they contain one of three types of CBD — full spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate. The difference between these three comes down to the chemical compounds included in your CBD product:
If passing a drug test is a top priority for you, CBD isolate is your safest bet. For whole plant benefits, including the entourage effect, full spectrum CBD might be for you. Perhaps the most popular option is broad spectrum CBD, which still allows for a THC-free form of the entourage effect to take place.
Proper CBD Dosing
Finding your ideal CBD dose can be tricky because there are countless factors that might alter your ideal CBD dose. We all have different bodies, needs, and tolerances for CBD, and with so many variables at play, there’s no standard dose.
Add to that the fact that different delivery methods have different onset times, so that you could feel the beneficial effects several minutes after applying topical CBD, but it could take closer to an hour to feel the beneficial effects of a CBD capsule. All that being said, the best rule of thumb is to start slow & low and increase dosage from there.
Best practice for finding your ideal dose of CBD is consistency. It is best to take CBD consistently over weeks and months as opposed to using it as needed. This is why we recommend adding CBD to your wellness routine in much the same way you would include a multivitamin in your regimen. In that sense, CBD truly is a preventative medicine as opposed to something like an aspirin that you would take only if you felt a headache, for example.
Once you’ve developed a consistent routine with your CBD intake, you’ll have an easier time adjusting your dosage based on your needs.
