Shopping online for CBD is convenient, cost-effective, and discrete. However, many first-time shoppers often become overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available on the market today. Purchasing your first CBD-infused product should be an exciting experience, and with a little insight, it can be. In this novice-friendly guide, we discuss how to use CBD oil and everything you need to know before buying.
How to Use CBD Oil
All CBD products share distinct similarities. The primary difference is how the compound is consumed, also referred to as its route of administration. Check out how to use different types of CBD products below.
A CBD tincture is an oil-based product that is typically administered sublingually (under the tongue) or buccally (against inner cheek). Allow the oil to set for the amount of time specified on the packaging before swallowing. Alternatively, CBD tinctures can also be mixed into a drink or incorporated into food.
Eating CBD-infused edibles is arguably the most delicious way to dose cannabidiol. CBD edibles and CBD candy, for example, are common favorites. CBD is also available in a vast array of other foodstuffs, or you could opt instead to incorporate CBD oil as a cooking ingredient at home!
CBD-infused topicals are applied to and absorbed via the skin. There is a vast array of CBD health and beauty products available, such as lotions, balms, and transdermal patches. Simply massage the product into the desired area and you’re done!
Vaping is another popular option enjoyed by many. CBD vape oil is heated to the point of vaporization with the use of a handheld vaporizer. Once inhaled, CBD is absorbed via the lungs and respiratory system. Available in a myriad of flavors, vaping CBD offers a genuinely unique dosing experience.
Smokeless CBD is comparable to chewing tobacco. Known as CBD snuff, it is applied and absorbed buccally (against the gum line and inner cheek). Smokeless CBD is available in original, mint, and wintergreen flavors. Can’t decide? Try all three with a sample pack today!
What You Need to Know Before Buying CBD
For safety’s sake, there are a few aspects that you should always consider before buying CBD. Always consider the following 3 points:
- Sourced from hemp: Ensure that the product is derived from legal hemp. Cannabis-derived CBD (and all other cannabis related byproducts) remain illegal from a federal standpoint. *Note: All products from Pure CBD Vapors incorporate federally compliant hemp and are legal in all 50 states.*
- Third-party lab tests: Venders of quality CBD routinely employ independent laboratories to conduct analyses on their products. Lab test results validate safety and consistency and should be readily available upon request.
- Ingredients: You should always thoroughly read all product labeling. Ensure that each ingredient is safe and that you are comfortable consuming the product.
