CBD or cannabidiol is a popular compound obtained from the hemp plant. Despite many controversies surrounding its use, CBD offers countless health benefits and is entirely safe. According to studies, CBD is an excellent pain reliever and anti-inflammatory compound and helps manage several neurological disorders. It also has a broad scope in the skincare and beauty industry because of its moisture retention, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Besides humans, CBD is also known for benefiting pets, including cats and dogs.

With so many advantages, it is no surprise that CBD is under continuous research as wild hemp only became legal in recent years. Today, CBD is available in three types and several forms. Read on to learn about the different forms of CBD and how to use them.

Types of CBD

Currently, three types of CBD products exist. As per the law, all three forms contain little or no quantity of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.

THC is a primary compound of the hemp plant, also found in marijuana. The presence of THC is what makes you feel high, hence why people confuse hemp and marijuana.

So, any CBD product on the market contains 0 to 0.3% THC, which is not enough to make you feel high. Let’s look at the three different types of CBD:

1. Full-Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD contains several by-products of the hemp plant besides cannabidiol, including THC. However, the quantity of THC does not exceed 0.3%, so you don’t experience any psychoactive effects.

Full-spectrum CBD is popular because the combined effects of multiple compounds generate more benefits. But the results aren’t only because of CBD; other by-products of wild hemp also play a part.

2. Broad-Spectrum CBD

Broad-spectrum CBD contains all the same compounds as full-spectrum CBD, except for THC. However, these products can still contain traces of tetrahydrocannabinol.

Broad-spectrum CBD is also known for offering countless health benefits, and like full-spectrum CBD, the results generated are also because of the presence of other compounds.

3. CBD Isolates

CBD isolates contain the purest form of cannabidiol without any other by-products of the hemp plant. However, this type of CBD takes longer to generate a response and is the least effective out of all three.

Different Forms of CBD

Now that you know about the three types of CBD available, it is time to look at the different forms of cannabidiol and how to use CBD products.

· CBD Oils

CBD oils contain cannabidiol extracts diluted in carrier oils, such as coconut oil or hempseed oil. CBD oils may or may not contain THC. The overall composition varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. For best results, purchasing from a brand that uses organic CBD is best.

Organic CBD comes from wild hemp that is grown without the use of artificial ingredients like pesticides and fertilizers.

You can consume CBD oil orally. Most manufacturers recommend taking the oil sublingually. However, it can also be used topically or added to food and beverages. However, it is crucial to follow the dosage instructions provided by the manufacturer closely. Typically, the doses start at 5 to 10 milligrams but can increase after regular use, depending on the types of benefits you want to attain.

· CBD Gummies and Edibles

CBD gummies and other edibles, such as capsules and tablets, are readily available on the market. However, gummies are the most popular choice as they taste great and are easier to consume than CBD oils. All you have to do is chew and swallow.

You can find CBD gummies in various flavors, shapes, and colors. But the underlying ingredients remain the same.

Most manufacturers offer gummies with a starting dose of 5 milligrams. You can always follow the instructions on the packaging for adjusting the quantities.

But gummies aren’t regulated by the FDA, so make sure you purchase from brands that get their products tested by third-party labs.

· CBD Topicals

As the name suggests, CBD topicals are applied directly onto the skin. You can find many CBD-infused creams, lotions, salves, etc., all of which come under the category of topicals. CBD serums, lip balms, eye creams, and moisturizers are also available in the skincare industry.

If treating a wound or skin condition, you can apply CBD topicals to the affected area by rubbing them into the skin.

Since topicals contain other ingredients besides CBD, it is essential to identify potential allergens from the ingredient list to ensure you do not suffer from an adverse reaction.

· CBD Cigarettes

Unlike tobacco cigarettes, CBD cigarettes are non-addictive and contain all-natural ingredients. These are excellent alternatives to vapes and do not cause lung damage.

As you can probably tell, CBD cigarettes are smoked like any ordinary cigarette. Having two or three cigarettes in one day is recommended.

The Bottom Line

The different forms of CBD include CBD oils, gummies, topicals, and cigarettes. All these products fit into one of the three types of CBD products, i.e., full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates.

Regardless of which form or type of CBD product you use, all contain little or no amount of THC. Most manufacturers provide clear instructions on how to use CBD products, but you should always start with a low dose and increase the quantity once your body adapts to its use.

Additionally, purchasing CBD products from organic wild hemp guarantees high purity and better results.
