CBD. You have most probably heard it floating around somewhere or the other. It is a trending topic at most of your dinner parties or pubs or wherever you are hanging out these days. Chances are you are searching for this particular topic because someone recommended it for pain or anxiety or any other medical conditions(there are quite a few). Or maybe you have an inclination towards being a new age savant and want to try it as a supplement.
No matter what your reason is, we have the answers for you.
Here we give you the information you need before you jump on the CBD train.
What Is CBD Oil?
To understand what exactly CBD oil is, we will first briefly touch upon cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
Cannabis has over 100 cannabinoids present, which interact with our mind’s endocannabinoid system. There are, however, two that are the most researched. THC & CBD.
THC is the reason behind the feeling of euphoria that sets in after the consumption of marijuana. 0This is the psychoactive ingredient present in cannabis.
On the other hand, you have got CBD. Cannabidiol is actually responsible for the entirely opposite effect as that of THC. CBD is actually the compound that can dampen the effects of THC if you get too high (Yes, that is a thing).
How is CBD Oil Made?
CBD oil is made from extracting CBD compound from either hemp or cannabis. Then this extract is added to a carrier, which can be any oil; the usual suspects are olive and coconut oil.
You can further bifurcate this into three different types of oil.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
This has the full chest of compounds locked into it. No isolation of compounds takes place, and whatever cannabinoids grace the plant’s profile end up in the oil. This means THC, CBD, and every terpene).
Broad- Spectrum CBD Oil
There is a certain amount of refinement that has happened when you are going in for a broad spectrum of CBD oil. This has the compounds and terpenes with the exclusion of THC.
There is just CBD and nothing else. No compounds, no terpenes, nothing.
Products With CBD Oil
CBD oil is like an umbrella term that encompasses a lot of different products. When you make your way to a dispensary, chances are you will see a shelf full of products and be a little overwhelmed. Fret not; we have this sorted for you.
The best if the accurate dosage is your goal, CBD tinctures require sublingual administration. You can find tinctures typically in a glass bottle with a dropper for the most precise dosage.

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)
This is an alcohol-based extract that is either ingested or applied directly onto the skin. In a dispensary, you will find it packed in an applicator or packaged plunger.
There are two different ways that vape oil is available. One is the pre-filled oil cartridges that attach to vape batteries or vape juice, the primary solvent in e-cigarettes.
Dabbing is a relatively new way to consume cannabis. It uses hash oil, live resins, rosin, and any form of cannabis that can help flash vaporization takes place. It is an extremely potent way to have marijuana and very difficult to control and so beginners are discouraged from partaking in it.
CBD is essentially what you use id symptom relief is your goal. CBD cannot fix your problems for you, but it can definitely help you manage them.
Do remember to get a marijuana recommendation garden grove before you buy anything from a dispensary.
