The CBD market offers a wide variety of ways to add CBD into your routine, but which CBD product should you choose? The more popular ways to enjoy CBD include edibles, oral supplements like tablets, capsules, or gel-caps, skincare products, pet treats, face masks, and tinctures. It can be difficult to choose which product to try first. The best approach is to decide the most important reason you would like to try CBD supplements.
Full spectrum vs Broad Spectrum
Full spectrum CBD is legally allowed to contain up to 0.3% THC. The hemp plant is the source of cannabinoids in both the CBD isolate and the Full Spectrum CBD products and is legally allowed to contain up to 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol with no legal issue product-wise. The Broad Spectrum has some of the cannabinoids (notably THC) removed from the oil. There are hundreds of cannabinoids in the hemp plant. When removing THC during extraction, it is possible that some of the other CBDs are also removed in the process.
All Green Time Wellness products are Broad Spectrum and contain 0.0% THC. Each batch is laboratory tested and verified to contain 0.0% THC. Review Lab Results
Oils and Tinctures
CBD tinctures are one of the more common ways of using CBD that you may already be familiar with. The tincture can be used under the tongue, so the oil does not drop on your taste buds. Taking the tincture under the tongue is recommended. We offer an alternative to tinctures in the form of gel capsules, where you can take it just like a regular pill and don’t need to measure out your dosage.
How to use CBD Tinctures
CBD Tinctures come in small dropper bottles with a flexible syringe bulb and a glass applicator tube that allows you to start using CBD very slowly. A full dropper contains approximately [33mg] of CBD. The best way to determine what dosage (how much) and frequency (how often) works best for your needs, we recommend keeping track of each dose in one location so it’s easy to create a customized dosing schedule.
Tinctures are best for those looking for a “whole body” CBD effect
Since the tincture is taken sublingually (under the tongue) and are available for use by your whole body somewhat more quickly than it would when using a capsule that needs time to digest or a topical slave that is best for localized concerns like localized knee pain or carpal tunnel of the wrist.
Capsules or tablets
Using the gel capsule method to take CBD is a tried and true, foolproof way to get a consistent quantity of CBD incorporated into your diet. The capsule form of CBD is best for those do not want to track their dosage by using tinctures, or don’t want to taste the oil.
How to use CBD Capsules or tablets
Gel Capsules are the easiest and most discreet way to get your daily CBD! They are convenient and a no-nonsense way to try CBD. Just incorporate one or two capsules into your normal supplements at least once a day and you’re on your way.
Topicals (Cream, salve, lotion, balm, facemasks)
Topical use of cannabidiol salve or ointment is ideal for those looking for relief from aches and pains associated with the accumulation of birthdays. Topical CBD is also used in facemasks and other skincare products to give you a youthful glow.
How to use CBD Salve
CBD Salve works best when used two to three times a day on painful or achy areas or as needed. Rub a small amount of salve into any pain points and a good bit of the surrounding area. Most people will use the salve 1-3 times a day but it’s safe to apply as many times as you need to throughout the day.
CBD Salve can be used directly on any painful joints or muscles so that you get the benefit of CBDs directly where you need it. Salve is also very soothing for dry skin and hempseed oil is one of the most gentle on skin.
How to determine how much CBD is right for your needs
CBD Journal Method
Write down the time you took your CBD, how you are currently feeling (write down descriptive words about your issue before you take your first dose) notate how many drops you used. After you’ve written down your initial statistics, go about your day as usual, but set a timer for about an hour either on your phone or in your head. After about an hour, pull out your CBD journal and write down any changes that you noticed from when you originally wrote down what you were feeling. Rank your pain, anxiety or [insert reason here] that you are using CBD. Was there any effect? If so, have your symptoms improved? If there was no effect, try adding another drop or two under your tongue and repeat the cycle, increasing the dosage as you are comfortable with while still getting the relief that you need. The journal method is perfect for those who love pens, pencils and paper. If that’s not you, check out the experimentation method below.
