The Different Types of CBD Products
Whether you’re new to CBD or simply looking for new ways to enjoy its many benefits, there are plenty of different forms of CBD to consider. From oils to vapor and topical creams, the sky is the limit. But how do you know which types of CBD are right for you? In truth, there is no “superior” form of CBD. Sure, some are better than others, but there are several factors to consider such as your daily routine, how often you plan on taking CBD, and what you’re hoping to achieve. The benefits are truly endless. CBD can help improve sleep, build immunity, reduce pain and inflammation, improve your mood, and decrease stress levels. In this blog, we’ll explore all of the CBD options, their pros and cons, and the ailments that they best treat.
CBD Oil Tinctures
The first and arguably most common form is CBD oil. We love this product for its versatility and effectiveness. CBD oil can be used in several different ways and it is well known for its rapid absorption into the bloodstream, which means it can be metabolized and begin taking effect more quickly. Ingesting CBD oil is great for addressing insomnia and anxiety.
A downside to CBD oil is its natural earthy flavor. Some people simply can’t get past the taste. At Wild By Nature, we’re known for our uniquely flavored CBD oil tinctures to make the taste a much more enjoyable experience. Ingesting CBD oil is a great option to experience the effects, especially when using the sublingual method. You can read more about this method in our blog post “Why Put CBD Oil Under Your Tongue” (link to blog post). Overall, tinctures are best for someone looking to address internal and external stress and enhance general wellbeing.
CBD Vape Pods
Vaping is the fastest way to experience the effects of CBD. It also provides greater bioavailability, which means you absorb the maximum amount of CBD from a concentrated dose. This is a great option if you’re looking for immediate relief. Similar to ingesting oil, the vape aims to provide full mind and body relief, whereas topicals are great for acute pain points. For an affordable CBD vape option, shop our Wild By Nature vape kits and pods.
CBD Topical Creams
Topical creams are perfect for aching muscles and joints. CBD lotions and creams have proven to be effective in treating all sorts of physical ailments from occasional back pain to arthritis. When you apply CBD oil topically, it works with nearby cannabinoid receptors to provide relief to that specific area-- where oils, vapes, and capsules are for general, holistic relief. We developed CBD creams to help soothe aches and pains. Melt the stress away with our CBD topical creams.
CBD capsules are a great option for frequent travelers or people who are always on the go. They are really convenient and portable and allow users to avoid the unpleasant taste of CBD. The downside to CBD capsules is that they take longer to work. The capsules have to go through the natural digestive process before entering the bloodstream, which can take up to an hour. That’s what led us to develop our six-pack. It’s a portable, convenient option that doesn’t sacrifice the effectiveness of CBD. Major win, win.
CBD edibles include any food or gummies that contain CBD. Consuming CBD edibles is the slowest and least efficient way to take CBD, but what edibles lack in efficiency, they make up for in taste. Many people enjoy CBD edibles because they mask the displeasing flavor of CBD and they’re convenient to consume anywhere. Ultimately, there is typically a lower concentration of cannabinoids in CBD edibles, making them the least effective option.Choosing the right types of CBD products to meet your needs can sometimes be overwhelming. CBD oil tinctures and vape kits come out on top for efficiency and effectiveness. CBD lotions are the best option to treat physical aches and pains, while oils and vape pods are best for reducing stress and anxiety. With a myriad of options, it’s best to explore them all to find out which one works best for you and your lifestyle. You can learn more about CBD and its benefits by visiting our CBD 101 page.
