This short FAQ will take you through the steps you need to take to easily decide the right CBD products for you.
There are three common methods of treating yourself with CBD: vaping, under the tongue and ingestion.
Vaping is said to have the highest levels of absorption1 but is the least popular due to difficulty with devices and also restraint/control of dose.
Vape and sublingual are absorbed almost direct to the bloodstream via the lungs and saliva glands, respectively.
Ingestion (capsules) is said to be the lowest levels of absorption due to having to pass via the gut and intestines.
The body reacts differently to ingested cannabinoids, so we feel it is unfair to directly compare ingestion with other methods. We have many customers that assert the capsules to be our most effective CBD product for them. Many combine two products; some even use a combination.
We would recommend to not discredit dosage methods solely due to their expected bioavailability and absorption rates – as you may be missing out.
Pick a method that suits you.
You have chosen your method, now, which concentration CBD product should you order?
The highest concentration products are better valued over the long term, meaning if you are a regular, or are planning to take for the foreseeable to aid with your health, then we would always recommend the higher concentration 1000mg bottles.
If you are looking to try CBD and don’t want to order a high concentration bottle, any of the concentrations are adequate to give CBD a genuine try by just using it to the end of the bottle.
The positives of the higher concentrations bottle: 1) it is easy to take higher dosages, 2) you require less oil/drops in the mouth to reach your dosage requirements, 3) it is cheaper over the long term, 4) the bottle will last you longer, 5) you have to order less frequently.
Having undergone minimal refinement and filtration processes, you can be sure all of the ORIGINAL levels of cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds found in the original extract are in there.
Our most potent, Original extract – with a similarly impressive taste.
It has been refined and filtered to remove all the extra unnecessary hemp constituents – leaving the highly beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes.
This extract has a much lighter taste, but likely a microscopically lower overall cannabinoid profile. The variance is so small modern analytical machinery can barely tell the difference, so we advise not to worry too much about it.
All our products are fantastic and manufactured to the highest standards. Pick a product that suits you and you feel comfortable with; you can’t really get it wrong.
