Ever since the discovery of Cannabidiol, which is commonly known as CBD, the man has come up with different ways to use it. So far, it is legally consumed in all states in America, with each state having its own laws on its degree of restriction.
This chemical compound, derived from both hemp and marijuana plants, is known to be a natural remedy for several ailments. It has proven to be very effective in the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and inflammation from arthritis. One of its mind-blowing effects even assists the treatment of seizures in epileptic children.
CBD vs THC
Added to these benefits is the fact that it is not psychoactive, unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is another chemical derivative of cannabis. Although CBD and THC both have the same chemical structure, their distinctive effect on the human body is due to a slight difference in how their atoms are arranged. This nature of Cannabidiol has further increased its popularity.
These days, there are several cannabidiol based products that make up for 50% of the cannabis market with 7% of Americans consuming them one way or another. The acceptance of these products in the market has encouraged even more companies to produce CBD based products.
The products can be found in health stores, marijuana dispensaries, and even online. Which CBD-based product should be used depends on an individual’s choice and they may need to try out different products to find the preferred one.
Wide Range of Products
Cannabidiol-based products come in many forms and some of the most used products include CBD oils and tinctures (under the tongue), CBD infused edibles (ingestion), CBD lotions and cream (topical), CBD skin patches (transdermal), and CBD vaporizing (inhalation).
These five ways of consuming cannabidiol differ from one another and their composition also varies. For example, CBD oils are composed of CBD and a carrier oil such as coconut oil while tinctures may contain other ingredients too.
