What product do I choose and how much CBD do I take?

Understanding what type of CBD product to use is important. Knowing how much CBD to take is even more important. Read on below to find out what's best for you..


CBD Oil Tinctures

  • Available in Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate-based forms, CBD oils are a popular choice among CBD consumers because they are easy to use. For best results, hold a few drops under your tongue for 10-20 seconds before swallowing.

CBD Topicals

  • Enjoy the benefits of CBD directly to your skin with CBD topicals. CBD creams, salves and lotions are a wonderful addition to any skincare routine. Apply directly to skin and or affected areas.

CBD Softgels/Capsules

  • Softgels and Capsule are the most convenient and consistent way of consuming CBD. With these options, you never have to worry about measuring or mixing your preferred dosage of CBD, just take the desired amount based on how much is inside each one. Great for on-the-go!

Other ways of consuming CBD include vaping, gummies/food, soft drinks, water and more!

The biggest difference in any consumption type is whether the CBD is Full spectrum, Broad Spectrum or Isolate based.

Full Spectrum CBD products are created from hemp through a full plant extraction. It contains naturally occurring cannabinoids (includes <0.3% THC), plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals & plant proteins of the original hemp source. These compounds work together, typically referred to as the “Entourage Effect,” multiplying the potential health benefits.

Broad Spectrum CBD products are created by taking Full Spectrum extract and further processing it to remove trace amounts of THC. Broad Spectrum products contain an array of naturally occurring cannabinoids, plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals & plant proteins of the original hemp source. Similar to Full Spectrum products, these compounds work together in what is known as the “Entourage Effect,” multiplying the potential health benefits. No Hemp taste and no THC!

CBD Isolate is created by removing all other molecules, except CBD, from the Full Spectrum extract, leaving the CBD in an anhydrous state. All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD with 0% THC. This powder is applied into various CBD Isolate products such as oils, edibles, topicals and vapes.
