Key Rules to Follow When Using CBD
Posted by NECTAR WELLNESS
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the gentlest, cleanest, and most versatile things you could incorporate into your daily routine. But, the bottom line is, if you wanna know you have a product that’s safe and effective. Not only that, but also want to get the best results out of this cannabinoid possible. So, if that’s all the case then, you gotta follow several key rules to ensure nothing but maximum CBD bliss.
Rule #1: Look for Lab Reports
Before you purchase any CBD product, look through the brand’s website for third-party lab reports. These indicate that the company is having their products tested by the batch, by a third-party, state-licensed testing facility. The results tell you a lot of critical information, such as the potency of the product, the purity of the compounds, the breakdown of cannabinoids and terpenes, whether or not the product has been contaminated, whether or not it complies with federal law, and, whether or not it’s a fake.
Rule #2: Take CBD at Night as a Beginner
While cannabidiol is generally gentle, some people may experience drowsiness, especially if they’re totally new to using CBD. This is why you should consider taking it at night the first few times, in case you do end up getting drowsy.
Rule #3: Read the Other Ingredients
Whenever you purchase CBD products, best to read the full list of ingredients on the label or website’s product description. Obviously, cannabidiol is the most important ingredient in any CBD-infused product, but that doesn’t mean that the other ingredients don’t play a big role in the quality, safety and effectiveness. Avoid ingredients that are harmful, and products made with lots of fillers, as well as any ingredients that you may have an adverse reaction to.
Rule #4: Know Your Delivery Method
Cannabidiol can be consumed in different delivery methods – in other words, the method of absorption. This includes ingestion (gummies), topicals (through the skin), and sublingual like a tincture (through the tissue below the tongue). Each delivery method lets you in on a unique type of CBD experience.
- Gummies and other edibles give you effects for 8 or so hours, taking about 1-2 hours to really kick in.
- Topicals work within minutes with lasting effects, but only really affect the localized area.
- Tinctures provide faster-acting effects throughout the body, with about 3-4 hours of activity.
Knowing what each delivery method can do will help you choose the right product for your specific needs.
Rule #5: Give Full Spectrum a Try
Full spectrum CBD is a type of hemp extract that contains the naturally high concentration of cannabidiol, along with every other naturally occurring compound in the plant – every cannabinoid, terpene, nutrient and flavonoid that plays a role in helping us feel our best. Full spectrum CBD may be the most effective of all, not only because you’re getting each of the properties of every compound in the plant, but because of the entourage effect – a synergistic reaction that occurs when we take all of these compounds together at once, allowing for stronger effects overall. Full spectrum CBD is widely available in the form of gummies, tinctures, topicals and more, and may be the most effective type of extract for your needs.
Final Rule: Know that Not All CBD is Created Equally
Thing about the CBD industry of today is this, it’s so competitive, there are a lot of companies out there trying to get some of those profits, but simply aren’t willing to go the extra mile to offer top-quality formulations. Look for positive reviews on a company’s website before buying CBD, and even look into their processes on their website to learn how they make their various formulas. This way, you’ll have a good idea as to what their quality standards are, to avoid ending up with a product that’s barely effective – or, even worse, completely fake.
Follow These Rules for Top-Notch CBD Success
While breaking any of these rules may not lead to harm, it may lead to missing out on the full potential of what the cannabinoid has to offer. By choosing Nectar Wellness CBD products, you’ll be able to know you’re getting the most effective CBD possible for maximum satisfaction and clear results.
