CBD is a sister-molecule to THC found in hemp-grown cannabis plants. CBD is both non-intoxicating and federally legal since the terms of the 2018 Farm Bill. Many people enjoy CBD medically and personally, but it’s not always clear which is the best way to consume CBD for your lifestyle and needs.
1) CBD Flower
Flower is still the most familiar and popular way to enjoy cannabis, including hemp-grown CBD flower. These buds have 0.3% THC or less and provide a full-spectrum experience. You can smoke CBD flower in a pipe, a water bong, or rolled into joints.
CBD flower can be bought in buds, popcorn (small buds), and shake which is already broken up for cooking or rolling. You can also get CBD flower that has been infused with CBD isolate to make it stronger or infused with one of the CBD-derived THC allegories like Delta-8.
2) CBD Tinctures
CBD is most often sold in tinctures. These are small dropper bottles of flavorful and potent CBD liquid. The special thing that makes it a “tincture” is an alcohol-extraction method compared to heat, pressure, butane, and other solvents used in cannabis extraction. Tinctures are alcohol extracts of hemp flower, often in a flavored suspension.
To use a tincture, drip one to five drops under your tongue. Hold the liquid under your tongue for 10-90 seconds, then swallow the rest. This allows both the sensitive membranes in your mouth and your digestive system to absorb CBD for a mixed activation time and breadth of effect.
3) CBD Edibles and Beverages
Edibles are extremely popular, and delicious. These are food and drink items that have been cooked with CBD oil, or infused with CBD after preparation. CBD edibles are quite popular because they are easy to take, holistically effective, and do not bother others who may be nearby.
There are CBD gummies, mints, chocolates, and baked goods. CBD beverages are becoming popular and are typically sold one at a time like energy drinks. You can also cook your own CBD edibles with cannabis oil to take home. CBD capsules are also edibles, but taken like vitamins as oil inside a gel cap.
4) CBD Hemp Topicals
Many people seek CBD for topical and local treatment. CBD topicals are made by blending CBD oil into skin products and cosmetics. Full-spectrum oil is popular for topicals, and CBD oil blended with hemp seed oil (a different product) is very good for your skin. Hemp oil has many positive qualities including antioxidant and non-comedogenic. You can find CBD lotions, ointments, and serums made with CBD oil, concentrates, or isolate. There is also a growing line of CBD topical cosmetics.
Full-spectrum topicals do not pose any risk to drug testing because the trace amounts of THC cannot pass the skin’s blood barrier. Benefits are localized only to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the skin itself.
5) CBD Vape Carts
CBD oil can also be weighted for vaporization. Cannabis dispensaries most typically sell CBD in vape carts that fit into the same vape pens and batteries used for THC oil cartridges. All you need is one rechargeable vape pen or mod box to enjoy many different brands and varieties of CBD vape carts.
In a standard 510 thread cartridge with an atomizer, you can cleanly vaporize the CBD oil for smoke-free inhalation. It can be powered by any standard vape pen or a mod box on a low setting.
