Cannabidiol comes in many different shapes and sizes. In part, this is thanks to the flexibility of the terpene in mixing with its blending with different solutions, but it’s also down to the sheer ingenuity of creators across the many sectors of the CBD industry. From CBD e-liquids at vape stores near me to wholefoods supplements, the variety is enormous.
This variety poses another question for potential CBD customers - which form is right for you? Each form that cannabidiol takes has its own unique set of benefits, ranging from relaxation to anti-inflammation. It’s just a case of working out which one meets your needs. Below is an outline of the different forms of cannabidiol, and how they focus on a different area of need.
CBD E-liquids have predominantly been manufactured for recreational cannabidiol use. Whilst other forms of CBD focus on health and pain relief, CBD e-liquids are designed for near-instantaneous relaxation and calm. Vaping CBD on one of the many vape starter kits sold at CBD Vape 4 U has the user inhale CBD infused vapour into their mouth and lungs, where it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
CBD Dry Herb
CBD dry herb vaporisers act in much the same way as vaping with e-liquids but provide a more authentic cannabis experience in both taste and sensation. The effects of vaping cannabidiol loose leaf might have a slightly milder effect, in that they come with other chemicals within the cannabis extract (minus THC of course!) rather than in a highly concentrated form. CBD e-liquids can reach up to 5000 mg in concentration, higher than a loose-leaf extract naturally could.
CBD tinctures are cannabidiol oil mixtures with an alcohol base. They are most often used to relieve anxiety, stress and decrease inflammation. Due to the fact that they don’t taste great, it’s often recommended that you have a drop alongside your meal. As it is ingested into the bloodstream under the tongue, the tincture might take a few hours to be processed by the liver before it has any effect, but when it does, it can be rather potent.
CBD oil acts in a similar way to tinctures, but are instead built upon a carrier oil such as palm or coconut. In contrast to tinctures, CBD oils are sometimes blended with other revitalising ingredients such as witch hazel and are usually mixed into drinks, foodstuffs or taken orally. CBD oil can come in many different concentrations and take a while to kick in.
Supplements are again taken orally alongside drink or food, and provide prolonged relief from pain, anxiety and stress. Supplements, such as hemp capsules UK can come in liquid capsule form or alternatively as a dry tablet. Either way, the effects and delayed response time can differ depending on the user’s metabolism rate.
CBD cream is used for focused relief from inflammation and body pain. From arthritis to muscle sprains, cannabidiol’s terpenes encourage cell growth and swelling reduction, making for quick and natural relief.
From CBD gummies UK to chocolate mousse, edibles are the most fun and flexible of CBD applications. Acting in much the same way as supplements, they take a while to digest but offer relaxation, stress and pain relief recreationally. They taste great too!
