All this talk about THC lands us nicely in the whole “Full Spectrum vs. Pure Isolate” debate. Once you begin shopping for CBD products, you’ll notice a lot of jargon that gets thrown around without much explanation. Now that we’ve introduced THC into the conversation, we can talk about the difference between, and relative benefits of, Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate (and the lesser-known contender: Broad Spectrum).
CBD products promote a sense of all-natural wellness, so it’s a no-brainer to look for products that hold true to this value with every ingredient. Endoca’s Body Butter excels at sticking to the basics. There are no artificial ingredients, drying alcohol, or greasy emulsifiers. We’ll beat them to the punch and let you know flat out that it’s so natural you can eat it!
Because CBD oil products are mostly unregulated, there’s no guarantee that any given product contains a safe or effective level of CBD. In fact, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2017 found that nearly 70 percent of all CBD products sold online are incorrectly labeled, and could cause serious harm to consumers. Some CBD oils may also contain incorrectly labeled amounts of THC and other compounds.
Transparency: Fab’s website features third-party lab results for most products. They only have a lab test for one of their tinctures though (which shows results for cannabinoid potency, as well as contaminants like pesticides). Customer service pointed out that the same CBD oil is used for all their products, but since potencies do vary, we appreciate companies that show potency testing for all products.
The Love Hemp CBD water range is also extremely popular, with 500ml bottles selling for just £1.99. This is CBD-infused water, to be clear, and Love Hemp claims the formulation took nine months’ worth of research from its Research and Development team. It basically tastes like mineral water, and is a great way to get your CBD intake on the move and stay hydrated at the same time.
CannabiGold’s unique selling point is not its oil, however, but its method of application. A common customer issue is droppers leaking because, when the highly viscous oil gets in the rim of a conventional dropper, it is not easy to close the bottle tightly anymore. By listening to their customers and conducting research and testing in their state-of-the-art facilities, the R&D team at CannabiGold developed a precise dropper technology that would allow 10g of CBD oil to be delivered in 400 micro drops, one at a time.
Scott Shannon, MD, assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado, recently sifted through patient charts from his four-doctor practice to document CBD’s effects on anxiety. His study, as yet unpublished, found “a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months,” he says. But he says he can’t discount a placebo effect, especially since “there’s a lot of hype right now.”
When you buy CBD online, stick to vendors who invest in third-party lab tests and provide only reputable, US-manufactured products. Hemp oil is expensive to produce at the highest purity and quality standards, so you should steer clear of any suspiciously cheap offer or product, as it may contain substances you don’t want to ingest. Check out our best CBD oil page to discover some of the most popular product types.
We have receptors for cannabinoids in the whole body, but the first type (CB1) are very dense in the pain pathways of the brain, spine, and nerves. The second type (CB2) are more important for the immune system but is also involved in inflammation. By gently acting on both pathways, our internal cannabinoids and CBD can balance both pain and inflammation .
Transparency: Receptra Naturals’ website has a database where you can look up lab reports for their products. The first time we checked, we got some 404 errors for a couple of the lab reports, but these glitches seem to have been fixed since then. We were able to see third-party lab reports for all their tinctures (though, apparently not for their topicals).
Cannabidiol or CBD is an active compound in the cannabis plant. This is present in both hemp and cannabis. Compared to the popular tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, this is not psychoactive and it is safe for use, even by children. This product has no effect on the mind of the user. It only offers relaxation and pain relief. CBD is sometimes overlooked because of the stigma connected with cannabis and THC. However, there are many benefits to using it—including as a natural treatment for epilepsy. In this post, we will be looking at various uses of CBD Cream and Lotions as well as offering reviews of the best products on the market today.
Fill the dropper with the CBD oil, place the tip of the dropper under the tongue and drip in the desired amount. Let the CBD oil get adsorbed for 1-5 minutes before swallowing it. If you are having a hard time with the dosage or the number of drops when you drip it under your tongue, you can also use a spoon. Just put the desired amount of CBD oil on the spoon and try to put it under the tongue. Just lick off the remaining oil on the spoon. Due to the fine blood vessels and mucous membranes in the mouth, the CBD quickly enters the bloodstream and therefore has a good bioavailability.
