As cannabidiol has gained in recognition and popularity over the last few years, so have the questions surrounding it. One big question that is out there is one that is actually rather easy to answer. Many people are wondering where they can get high-quality CBD oils and pills.
CBD: a brief overview
Before we dive into where to find good CBD products, let’s define it.
CBD is a chemical compound known as a cannabinoid. These are compounds that are found in Cannabis plants like hemp ad marijuana. Researchers so far have identified 113 cannabinoids and they are likely to find even more.
While CBD is definitely well-known, there is another cannabinoid that is even more famous. That cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This cannabinoid is so well-known because it is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in Cannabis plants. That means it is the chemical that creates the high so often associated with Cannabis. CBD gets grouped together with THC a lot. As a result, many think that CBD is also psychoactive. However, that is a mistake. CBD does not create any high. If that has been a concern of yours, no worries.
CBD comes in a lot of different products. Some of the more popular are topicals and edibles. Topicals are lotions and cremes that are infused with CBD. They are essentially CBD that you rub on your skin. Edibles are food or drink that have been made with CBD. These are popular because they taste good and are easy to take. But pills and oils are some of the more common forms of CBD that you will find. Oils are the more “traditional” version. They are CBD extract mixed with a carrier oil (like palm oil) and, often, some flavoring too. You can mix them with food or drop some directly into your mouth. CBD pills usually come in the form of either soft gel capsules or tablets. The soft gels are easy to swallow and start working rather quickly. Tablets are usually dissolvable. You place them under your tongue and allow them to disappear, no need for swallowing.
How to find quality CBD pills and oils
Finding CBD oils and pills is not hard. At the moment the internet is crawling with all kinds of CBD manufacturers. CBD products are in most health stores and pharmacies. So, you should have no difficulty in finding a few places to buy from. But there are some things you should consider.
The CBD industry is a young one. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has implemented guidelines and restrictions, these are still developing. So, it can be a little intimidating to try and find high-quality CBD products. However, there are ways to make sure that you find a great product at a reasonable price.
The main thing that you need to be willing to do to find good CBD pills and oils is research. This is not as complicated as it sounds. A lot of it is just reading reviews. Read reviews about both the company and the product you are interested in. You many even want to read reviews about the company’s other products, to help give you a more overall idea of what kind of quality their CBD is. Be sure to read reviews from third party sites as well as the company’s site. This way you avoid potential bias within the comments.
After you have read some reviews, it is also a good idea to research a bit about the company that you are buying from. A trustworthy CBD manufacturer will be transparent about their extraction process. They will also have their products tested by a third party and be transparent about that as well. This does not require digging. If they are going to be open about it, it should be easy to find on their website.
The next thing to consider about a CBD product is the price. CBD products are going to be a bit more expensive than their non-CBD counterparts. This is because they require extra work. However, there are some manufacturers who take advantage of that. They charge overly high prices because they think they can get away with it. A high price does not always mean high quality. Meanwhile, on the other end of the scale, if the price of a CBD product seems too good to be true, it probably is. If a CBD product is really cheap, it is not likely to be as good of a product as some others. When looking for CBD pills and oils, it is best to find ones that are priced somewhere in the middle.
How much CBD is the right amount?
This question can be a little tough to answer. This is because there is no one set answer. Everyone experiences CBD a little bit differently. Some people require a lot to notice any sort of effect, others may find their limit rather quickly.
It is best to know what your limit is in order to avoid unpleasant side effects. There are not many side effects associated with CBD and they are not serious, but they are still not something you will want to experience. They may include things like diarrhea and dizziness. Those are things you likely would want to avoid, so how do you do it?
The main thing to know is that these side effects are normally associated with taking too much of the cannabinoid. So, to avoid them, you need to be sure that you are not taking to much. To figure that out, you need to be willing to do some experimentation. Start the amount that you take small and wait and see how it sits with you. You can learn more about what CBD feels like here. With pills this may be one pill or even half of a pill (if it is not a soft gel capsule). With oils, this will likely be just one drop. If you do not experience any negative side effects, but still are not getting your desired effect, you can up the amount you take.
As mentioned before, the internet and many health stores are crawling with CBD products, so it should not be too difficult to find one that works for you. That being said, there is no real need to go searching. Here on the Panacea Life Sciences site, we have CBD oils, tinctures, soft gel capsules, and tablets.
