How Do You Choose the Right CBD Product?

8 min read

Are you new to CBD? Although intimidating, choosing the right product will maximize your results. Before getting into product details, here are some general things you should know about CBD.

Does CBD Get You High?

It does not. CBD does not contain THC and therefore cannot get you high. For CBD to be sold legally across the US it must come from the hemp plant. THC comes from the cannabis plant. Similar plants, but different effects.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is responsible for regulating important functions in the body. These functions include sleep, stress, anxiety, pain, mood, memory, metabolism and immune response. When you boost your ECS with CBD, you help bring balance to all those important functions.

Do Different Methods of Taking CBD do Different Things?

The simple answer is no. Whether you take CDB as a gummie, oil, capsule, softgel or drink - once ingested the CBD performs the same function. The function is to interact with cannabinoid receptors in your ECS and help bring your body to better balance. 

So Why Should You Choose a "Right" Product When They All do the Same Thing?

This is where it gets a little more complex. Some methods will give you a stronger effect, some a faster effect, some a long lasting effect. Some will work better for sleep, others will work better for pain. Some will need big doses for an effect others require small amounts.
