CBD is relatively new on the scene. From its initial use as a medical treatment to its abundance on the high street, the non-psychoactive chemical found in cannabis plants has had quite the journey over the past few years. With many companies now utilising it in a great any products, the forefront seems to be in the vaping world. Now found in many e liquids and vaporiser ready oils, CBD has truly taken the world by storm. So, if you’re looking to buy into the hype, how do you decide which CBD product is right for your specific needs? Below are some of the main forms that CBD takes, alongside the benefits you’ll find from each.

But what is cannabidiol?
CBD or cannabidiol is an extract of the marijuana plant which claims to relieve stress, anxiety and body pain. Whilst it is one of the main extracts from the marijuana plant, it’s actually completely legal in many European countries. This is in part due to it’s not having any of the harmful effects that can be triggered by THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana which can lead to anxiety and psychosis.

Oils
CBD oils are intended for use as a supplement. Often infused with hemp products, CBD oils are used by dripping onto your food, or for mixing into your food. Whether adding to an edible or adding to a coffee, these oils are perfect for daily use and have a calming effect that maintains your lucidity and has no known negative impact on your health.

Vape liquids
CBD infused vape liquids come in a variety of flavours. With many different strains to choose from, CBD vape liquids give vapers the chance to explore a variety of flavours infused with the natural tang of cannabidiol. These make for amazing e-liquids and add an extra soothing - or energising - kick depending on the strength of the CBD in the liquid.

Loose leaf
Loose Leaf is the most natural way to ingest CBD products. These flower buds are strains of the Sativa dominant marijuana plant that come with next to no THC and are naturally grown. Often being cultivated in natural light and in greenhouses free from pesticides, loose-leaf CBD is perfect for use on dry herb vaporisers and comes with all the benefits of CBD along with a unique taste which you simply can’t find anywhere else.

Cream
CBD creams are available in two main forms. One is an uplifting face cream that helps rejuvenate and moisturise the skin, the other is for the natural treatment of aches and pains. Whilst the face cream is merely for recreational use, the pain-relieving cream is mostly utilised for muscle strains and skin inflammations and can be bought in various strengths, either over the counter or in CBD supplying high street shops.

Edibles 
Whether it be in baked goods or CBD Gummies, cannabidiol can be easily utilised in an edible form. Infused with foods such as fruit and nut mixes and even in tablet form, CBD edibles have the relaxing and uplifting benefits of other CBD products but are released more gradually as you digest it.

Have you tried any form of CBD, whether it is skincare, edibles or oils?
