Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of hundreds of chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. CBD oil is an extract of cannabis that is non-intoxicating and frequently used for medicinal properties. It provides a natural alternative to synthetic pharmaceuticals, while avoiding the euphoric effects of THC. There are all different types of CBD extracts. A tincture is applied under the tongue, where CBD is absorbed sublingually to enter the bloodstream. They are packaged in a small glass bottle with a dropper for dosing built right in. Tinctures are super discreet, wonderfully portable and very easy to consume. They require no extra gear or skills and allow precision micro dosing. The onset of effects is quick. However, tinctures can also be added to favorite beverages or foods for the delayed effects of an edible. Another option is CBD capsules. Filled with oil, the capsules are swallowed just like a traditional supplement. There is no mess, smoke or ash. It’s very easy to know exactly how much CBD you are consuming. Vapes are a popular way to consume CBD. There are pre-filled oil cartridges that work with vape batteries. They can be either refillable or disposable and provide the smoking experience without the carcinogens and odors. CBD-rich butane hash oil, live resins, rosin and other forms of extracts allow for dabbing. This method is more for the experienced cannabis consumer than the beginner. It’s a good idea to read the label for the cannabinoid content. More and more products contain both CBD and THC due to the benefits of the entourage effect. Recent studies indicate the CBD and THC work better in partnership than on their own.
