Many people are discovering CBD as an alternative therapy to better manage stress and anxiety, reduce the symptoms of chronic conditions, and help relieve daily aches and pains associated with an active lifestyle. This essential oil from the hemp plant works naturally with your body’s own internal processes to help boost and balance energy levels, reduce headaches, nausea, inflammation, pain, and insomnia, and provide a powerful natural therapy for your overall wellness.
Whether your lifestyle is active and on-the-go or centered around at-home activities, CBD is available in a diverse range of product options for more balanced wellness. Choosing the options that work best for your lifestyle means taking into account some key considerations, including your individual health goals, ease of dosing, intake method, packaging convenience, and your job and personal preferences.
How To Find The Perfect Hemp Supplement for Your Unique Needs
Getting Started: CBD 101
CBD products are made from an essential oil of the hemp plant called cannabidiol, or CBD for short. This natural ingredient also doubles as a compound known as a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are signaling agents that interact with key receptors in your brain and body that are part of your Endocannabinoid System. These include receptors such as serotonin and dopamine that regulate pain and mood, as well as inflammation-regulating receptors like TPRV-1.
Because CBD works naturally to help balance your body’s own healthy processes, it has been shown to assist with decreasing anxiety, chronic pain, arthritis, migraines, and inflammation from muscle and tissue injuries. It can also aid in regulating your immune system and providing you with a much-needed energy boost for your next workout, or even a dose of relaxation after a stressful day.
In fact, CBD products can either be formulated to address targeted wellness needs or crafted to help you manage generalized wellness goals.
Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, or CBD Isolate Products
When beginning your search for CBD products that work best for your healthcare goals, we recommend considering the type of blend. CBD comes in three main blends:
- Full-spectrum blends contain CBD plus a full range of additional healthy hemp ingredients including terpenes that give plants their unique aromas, flavonoids that infuse them with taste, and other cannabinoids that work in conjunction with CBD to help boost your health scorecard. However, these blends typically contain greater than 0.3% of THC, which is the compound found in cannabis that can cause intoxicating effects.
- Broad-spectrum blends contain all the same healthy compounds found in full-spectrum blends, except they only have trace amounts of THC (no more than 0.3%), so you won’t experience any intoxicating effects.
- Isolate is about 99.9% pure CBD, with no additional healthy hemp compounds.
At trupura CBD we make it easy for you by infusing all our products with broad-spectrum, whole-plant hemp oil to give you the maximum CBD benefits without the intoxicating effects of THC. When hemp’s healthy ingredients are combined together like this, they help boost CBD’s positive effects, a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
A Trio of CBD Delivery Methods
Next, you can consider the type of CBD product that works best for you based on its absorption rates and the time and duration of its effects. Absorption rates are affected by the way CBD enters your body, also known as the “delivery method”. There are three main types of CBD delivery methods:
- Orally: CBD oils, tinctures, and edibles can be taken by mouth, which offers a medium to high level absorption rate. Though CBD’s effects are delayed, they will last fairly long, usually between 6-8 hours. This makes oral use an excellent choice if you’re dealing with chronic issues such as arthritis pain, migraines, or nausea.
- Sublingually: CBD oils and tincture drops can be placed under the tongue and held there for 20-30 seconds, which offers a high-level absorption rate and fast-acting effects that typically are felt within two hours. This means it’s a great delivery method for anyone dealing with anxiety, stress, or workout pain, or for those who need a fast energy boost.
- Topically: These are products applied directly to the skin, and they have no bioavailability throughout your body. Instead, they help nourish and replenish your epidermis and dermis, with immediate results that last around 6-8 hours.
Your Choice of CBD Products
Here comes the fun part, where you get to choose from CBD oils, tinctures, topicals, and edibles based on your personal taste preferences, the ease of dosing, and packaging convenience.
CBD Oils and Tinctures
CBD Tinctures combine CBD oil with a healthy carrier oil such as MCT. This helps increase absorption rates because MCT molecules are small, and this allows you to digest the CBD better. CBD tinctures have a convenient measurement dropper for daily dosing. In addition, the drops can be added to your favorite CBD recipes. This makes them a versatile choice when adding CBD to your daily routine.
The most mouthwatering way to enjoy the health benefits of CBD is with a delicious snack, beverage, baked good, or sweet treat. CBD edibles include gummies, teas, candy, and coffee and are a great option for those who love tasty flavors. Some edibles like gummies and candy bars come in discreet packaging for workplace environments, with pre-measured dosing to make it easy to get a consistent amount of CBD each day. They’re also convenient for travel, whether you’re at work or on the go.
Lotions, creams, and bath salts are examples of topical CBD products. While they only reach “skin deep,” the benefits can still be enormous. Because they target key cannabinoid receptors in your skin, they help shore up your first line of defense against germs, bacteria, and even fungal infections. CBD topicals can also work to keep your complexion vibrant and free of conditions such as dermatitis and acne.
A Quick Note on Third Party Lab Testing
Any CBD products you choose should also be third-party tested to ensure you’re receiving a high-quality oil that contains natural ingredients free from harmful pesticides, and with the proper levels of CBD and THC that match the label.
Now that you know what to look for to match your CBD with your wellness goals, let’s take a look at four of the best CBD products to target every type of lifestyle.
