Canadians should know that the CBD industry is so big, everyone can find a product that suits their needs. But with that said, doing that is far from easy. You’ll need to go through a lot of research and a lot of reading to know how to choose the right product for you.
But luckily for you, that’s why we’re here. In this article, we will look at how to choose the right CBD product for you. So, let’s begin.
What Are You Using CBD For?
First and foremost, Canadians need to be aware of this one. Namely, you need to be aware of what exactly CBD helps with. This will help you easily narrow down what the best products are for which condition. Canadians also need to be aware that there are tons of types of products on the market. Understanding the options you have will help you figure out what product works best in which situations.
Know the Type of CBD You’re Getting
Another thing to know about CBD is that it comes in three distinct types. Those are full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate. Products on the market can be made using any one of these. Canadians should familiarize themselves with all three types to determine which product works best for them.
CBD isolate products are very popular. They are oftentimes called pure products as isolate contains close to 99% pure CBD. During the making of CBD isolate, every other compound of the hemp plant is extracted, leaving us with CBD in powdery or crystalline form. Canadians love mixing these two in beverages and foods.
Full spectrum CBD products are also very popular. The unique thing about products with full spectrum CBD is that they contain THC. Although the THC content cannot go more than 0.3%. This makes the product legal in Canada. In addition, full spectrum contains all other active cannabinoids in hemp. Despite the confusion, hemp and marijuana are two different plants.
And the last type is broad spectrum. Broad spectrum has one distinct difference with full spectrum. If THC is present in full spectrum, it doesn’t exist in broad spectrum. If we extract the THC from hemp, then we have broad spectrum oil on our hands. We then use this oil to make all kinds of broad spectrum products. The biggest strength of broad spectrum is the fact that it gives Canadians options. Those that don’t like THC can try broad spectrum or CBD isolate products.
Know Your Product Options
Now, let’s look at what options you have available. The Canadian CBD market is huge. While there are establish products that everyone has tried, new ones are emerging by the year.
CBD oil is probably the most common product you’ll find on the market. Oil is meant to be sublingually taken; under the tongue in Layman’s terms. What this gives you is a consumption method that works well in relieving a lot of conditions such as stress, pain, and even helps you sleep better. The most commonly used are full spectrum CBD oil for the entourage effect and pure CBD oil from isolate.
If oils are the most common product, then vapes are the hottest thing right now. CBD vapes offer Canadians the chance to inhale CBD directly into the bloodstream. The reason why we mention this is because this consumption method is very fast-acting. When inhaling CBD, the bioavailability rate is anywhere between 2% and 56%. However, many believe that the actual number is closer to the latter. This makes CBD vapes one of the most effective products on the market.
Edibles take a lot more time to affect us since they have to go through our digestive system and boil down before we can experience the effects of cannabidiol. With that said, edibles are probably one of the most enjoyable products on the Canadian market. They come in all shapes and sizes, and in numerous flavors. They can be gummies, brownies, chocolates, liquids infused with CBD, and more.
Topicals are meant to be applied to the skin. These products can be creams, salves, lotions, lip balms, and any other skincare product infused with cannabidiol. The reason why Canadians love topicals is that they’re also very fast-acting. It is estimated that topicals have the second-highest CBD bioavailability rate, coming at close to 45%.
Pills and Capsules
Pills and capsules are quite similar CBD products. The only difference is that pills are solid, while capsules can contain oil or powder. Both are great and both offer Canadians a very familiar consumption method. The bioavailability rate is similar to that of edibles, considering that the pills and capsules have to go through the digestive system before affecting us.
