CBD comes in many forms, so many in fact, that it may be very hard to find what works right for specific issues. This article is here to solve that issue and to finally answer the question: “What will work for me?”
What is CBD and How is it Useful?
To answer the aforementioned question, we must first answer the question of what CBD is. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in Hemp and Marijuana. This chemical compound has many amazing health benefits. Sounds way too good to be true right? Well, surprisingly it’s not. CBD has been proven to help mental health issues like anxiety and depression, Alzheimer’s, and help with physical pain.
The Different Types of CBD
There are many types of CBD that can be used in different ways. Each way may be better suited to help a certain issue than another. The forms of CBD include CBD oils, CBD Flower, CBD Edibles, and CBD Vapes and Dabs.
Oils are the most common way to take CBD. You can find an oil for almost any issue, or price range. The main characteristic of oils is that they are fast acting. Put one drop under the tongue and wait upwards of five to ten minutes and your results have shown. With so many different types of oil out there, this is an amazing place to start if you have never tried CBD before and want to give it a whirl.
The flower is by far the fastest way to experience the wondrous benefits of CBD. Since the Flower will be absorbed into your lungs, and directly into your bloodstream, it will take little to no time at all. The flower definitely has a stronger impact than most other forms. The thing to keep a lookout for is what kind of strain you’re smoking. There are Indica and Sativa strains, which both have different effects. The Indica is better to use at night because it promotes sleep and relaxation. In contrast, the Sativa strain is better used during the day because it is very uplifting and promotes energy and creativity.
Edibles are on the complete opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to speed. They can take upwards of an hour to set in. These may be better suited for people who aren’t willing to smoke something though. They can be taken an hour before bed at night to promote good sleep, or taken in the daytime at breakfast to promote a good relaxing yet productive day. This is due to the fact that you still have to look out for the aforementioned strains (Indica and Sativa).
CBD Vapes and Dabs
Last but not least, we have CBD vapes and dabs. This, like the flower, is a very fast-acting way to take a CBD product. The main differences here are potency and convenience. Dags and Vapes are usually very concentrated, and are very potent for that reason. The convenience however may be the biggest selling point of them all. Randomly feeling anxious or down throughout the day? Not able to bring a CBD blunt or joint out with you because of pesky social norms? Just bring a Vape! You can hit off of it for two or three seconds and get almost instant releif from the issue you’re dealing with.
CBD is an amazing chemical. It has helped numerous people overcome problems in their lives that they never thought possible. From oils, all the way to vapes there is a form of CBD out there for everyone!
