Different Methods of Taking CBD

cbd oil

CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, seems to generate new studies every day claiming a new usage. It can be difficult for consumers to make sense of the products they find advertised online and at their local dispensary, and even more difficult to decide which is right for them.

With CBD suddenly being touted in food products and cosmetics, in the form of different oils, crystals, e-liquids and teas, it’s no surprise many are confused by it all. To help make sense of so many options, we’ve created a guide to some of the most common CBD products available.

CBD-rich oil

How it’s made:

CBD-rich oil is a specific oil that contains CBD and doesn’t contain THC. CBD-rich oil is obtained via extraction made from cannabis flowers, most of the times from hemp strains rich in CBD. Then this extract can be mixed with hemp seed oil, olive oil or other types of oil to facilitate ingestion. These CBD-rich oil products are non-psychoactive.

It is important to know the difference between CBD oil and Hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil is a hemp extract taken from the seeds of the plant. Industrial hemp is the only plant used for this type of hemp oil. The seeds of the hemp plant can be cold pressed, peeled or unpeeled (preferably cold), to create a delicious oil. There are no cannabinoids such as THC or CBD present in the oil since hemp seeds are not psychoactive. Hemp oil is legal in most countries and can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil.

How you use it:

CBD-rich oil can be consumed in many ways. Users looking for the strongest effect from the oil can take it directly by placing a drop on or under the tongue so the oil is absorbed through the mouth and digestive tract. Others who want to enjoy the experience of consumption may choose to add a drop of oil to cooking or baked goods or dissolve a drop in their smoothie or tea.

Hemp seed oil can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil. Hemp seed oil is known for its great taste and for it’s high values of unsaturated fats, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6.  It can be used in Many different applications such as  Lotions or soaps, a base for plastics, instead of petroleum and eco-friendly paints.

CBD Crystals

How they’re made:

After hemp oil is removed from the plant, it can be further refined to isolate only CBD. To isolate pure CBD crystals, extracted hemp oil is put through a ‘winterisation’ process- or slowly heated to remove fats and lipids. Then, a machine called a rotary evaporator is used to remove any remaining plant traces. The final product is decarboxylated through another meticulous heating process to activate the cannabinoids, making chemicals bioavailable for consumers.

 

How you use it:

CBD crystals give consumers more versatility than oil. Like hemp oil, they can be added to foods, dissolved in drinks or swallowed whole, but unlike oil, crystals can also be ‘dabbed’  like cannabis concentrates (a manual vaporization method) made into an e-liquid, or sprinkled over a cigarette or joint.

Pros and cons:

Because crystals are more highly concentrated than other forms of CBD—up to 99.8% in some cases, they produce a more immediate effect than other methods of consuming it. On the downside, isolating only one cannabinoid removes a variety of terpenes from the final product.

 

Methods of ingestion are entirely up to the user’s preference. Different methods could have different effects on one person to another based on their personal taste.

For users looking for an easy use, we recommend our wide range of CBD e-liquids, which are available in different strengths to suit your needs. For consumers looking for the highest-impact product available, pure CBD crystals may be the best option. For those simply wanting to explore the use of CBD in their normal diet, hemp oil may have the best overall benefits. CBD tea is best suited for consumers who simply want a flavourful tea.

CBD E-Liquids

How it’s made:

CBD e-liquids are CBD products designed for use in e-cigarettes or vaporisers. Many manufacturers start with pure CBD crystals in order to precisely measure the CBD dosage, combining them with vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. High-quality e-liquid producers also add terpenes, (aromatic compounds from the cannabis plant) back into the e-liquid at the end of the process to enhance flavour.

How you use it:

CBD e-liquids can be used in place of nicotine e-liquids in any standard e-cigarette or portable vaporiser. Simply add the e-liquid to the tank of your vape and follow the device’s instructions to inhale the vapour. Prepared e-liquid cartridges are also available for e-cigarette models that don’t allow for manual refills.

Pros and cons:

E-cigarettes have become a huge trend. They are convenient and discreet when travelling and allow users to ‘vape’ in places where they were previously not allowed to smoke, like inside public buildings or at the office. Dosages in this form can vary, producers often offer different strengths of CBD e-liquids for different user preferences. This is the most affordable, direct and convenient option for a majority of consumers.

CBD Tea

How it’s made:

CBD tea is made simply by drying the leaves and buds of CBD-rich hemp plants. Like other cannabinoids, CBD extracts from the plant and binds to fats during any heating process. To get the best effect the tea should be brewed for several minutes with some type of fat like milk, cream, or coconut oil. Without fat included in brewing, users will only get the benefits of antioxidants, fatty acids and the tea’s sweet, subtle flavour rather than active cannabinoids.

How to use it:

To get the full flavour of hemp tea, brew tea in hot water with milk, cream or coconut oil for 5 minutes or more. Dried hemp tea leaves can also be used as a replacement for loose rolling tobacco when making cigarettes or joints.

Pros and cons:

Because raw dried hemp leaves have not gone through processes to activate the chemicals they contain, the cannabinoids in hemp tea are less ‘bioavailable’, meaning the user will feel a much weaker overall effect compared to other methods.

 

 

Difference Between Hemp and Bioactive Oil?

What is the difference between Hemp & Bioactive CBD Oil
With so many to choose from it can be hard to make a decision upon which one would suit yourself.  I found these two Oils from Flora fusion, one is the classic UK manufactured Hemp seed oil and the other is the Bioactive CBD Oil from the EU. Although both are ‘CBD Oils’ the two are very different. It is worth understanding the differences between the two before deciding which is best for you. So, here is the difference.

Hemp Seed Oil infused with CBD

Our UK manufactured CBD oil is made from organic cold pressed hemp seed oil which is fantastically rich in essential proteins and fatty acids. The seed itself is made up of about 32% of an edible oil that contains 80% of the essential acids. These include Omega, 3, Omega 6, Linolenic acid, alpha & Gamma-linolenic acid and stearidonic acid.
Omega 3 is extremely important for the human metabolism and is known to reduce inflammation and the potential of cancers and cardiovascular disease while increasing cognitive ability and brain functions. Similar to Omega 3, Omega 6 also plays an essential role in brain function, normal growth and development. It also helps to regulate, skin and hair growth, maintain healthy bones, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.

Linolenic acid is a fatty acid that (like Omega 3 & 6) cannot be produced by the human body and must be acquired through diet. The consumption of Linolenic acid differs in individuals however, it is essential in the make-up of cell membranes and there has been some evidence to suggest that it helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Finally, Stearidonic acid (also known as Moronic Acid) is known to have anti-viral properties and is part of the process of producing anti-HIV medicines.
All of these properties make Hemp oil a brilliant supplement for concentration, cognitive ability and things like hair growth. Like most oils, hemp oil is not soluble in water but is easily consumed and can be applied topically. It is a very durable and versatile CBD oil product.
Bioactive CBD Oil
The Bioactive CBD oil is specifically designed for consumption rather than being applied topically or added to other ingredients. Unlike the CBD infused hemp oil, it is water soluble so can be easily mixed with tea, vegetable or fruit juices to make the consumption of CBD as easy as possible. Everything in the Bioactive oil is exclusively derived from plants and is a multi-spectrum product that contains a whole host of different cannabinoids and compounds that enhance each other to promote health and wellbeing. This is sometimes referred to as the Entourage Effect.

Curcumin, Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Pinene, Limonene, Linalool, CBD, CBC, CBN and CBG are all included within this product which are organic compounds found in a multitude of different products, foods and vegetation. Caryophyllene, in particular, is associated with stimulating the CB2 receptor (in the Endocannabinoid System) and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, neuroprotective, anxiolytic, antidepressant and antialcoholism activity in mice. Studies are trying to prove whether these effects are shared in humans. CBD, CBC, CBN and CBG are all cannabinoids which bind with the endocannabinoid system. Further information on these cannabinoids can be found by clicking the link.
This product is 100% natural and all the ingredients have been selected so that they can work together and interact with the endocannabinoid system.
