CBD Oil Concentrates from Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) is an all-natural botanical extract sourced straight from the stalks and seeds of hemp. You can place hemp CBD concentrate extract under your tongue for 60-90 seconds to allow the active compounds to be absorbed quickly through the mucous membranes under the tongue. CBD concentrate can also be swallowed, a method that delivers the CBD to your bloodstream after it passes through the digestive system.
With no measurable levels of THC or dense plant material, crystallized CBD Isolate is perfect for making your own personalized CBD supplements. CBD isolate powder has no taste or smell to it and can be integrated into a number of products, offering unmatched versatility. You can use CBD Isolate by placing it under your tongue, add it to your vaporizer, make your own CBD edibles, blend it into smoothies, and more. We also use our CBD Isolate to create CBD products free of the concern over THC.
Many of our customers prefer CBD Capsules because they are pre-measured and easy to take. All you need is a beverage to wash down your CBD capsule and you are on your way. Because they don’t need to be refrigerated, you can keep them where you use them most or keep them with you. Made with full spectrum hemp oil, our CBD capsules offer the same nutrients and active compounds as the natural hemp plant.
CBD Edibles are starting to become very popular as an everyday supplement. CBD edibles have numerous benefits. Primarily, they allow you to quickly and easily get your daily intake of CBD through a flavorful CBD-infused product. CBD edibles are becoming a common way people encourage wellness, and our flavorful CBD gummies and CBD energy chews are a great option.
CBD Tinctures and Liquids mix full spectrum CBD oil or CBD isolate with vegetable glycerin, ethanol, or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. Tincture oils and CBD liquids are typically administered by dropping underneath the tongue, so some products are also sweetened or infused with natural flavors for a more enjoyable supplementing experience. CBD tinctures and liquids can also be mixed into smoothies or folded into yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal, and more.
If you’d rather vape your daily CBD, then CBD Vape Oil is for you. Designed to be vaporized and inhaled, CBD vape oil delivers its CBD directly to the lungs where it is absorbed into the body. CBD vape oil is designed to be used with a vaporizer, a personal device that heats the botanical oils to their boiling point. This produces a pure, clean, CBD-filled vapor that can be safely inhaled into the lungs and quickly absorbed into your body. CBD vape oils come in a variety of flavors that emphasize natural hemp terpenes, or fruit and dessert-inspired flavors.
CBD Skin and CBD Hair Products, also commonly called CBD topicals, include balms, salves, lotions, oils, shampoos, conditioners, and other beauty products that are infused with hemp-derived CBD oil. These products are applied directly to the skin and hair to take advantage of the benefits of CBD.
Our customers can even use CBD for their pets. CBD for Pets is a fast growing segment of the pet market. Pet owners can take advantage of CBD for their fuzzy loved ones because all mammals share a common endocannabinoid system. Products like CBD oils, CBD dog and cat treats, and skin balm provide your pets with daily CBD.
These are just a few examples of the wide variety of CBD products available. To get a full idea of the types of CBD products available, visit the Medical Marijuana Inc. Shop.
When it comes to determining which CBD hemp oil product is right for you, there are a few things to ask yourself to help narrow down your choices. Here is how to choose the best type of CBD products for your unique needs.
Are you looking for a dietary supplement or a topical product?
This one should be easy. Are you looking for CBD products for nutritional value, or for a CBD-enhanced bath and beauty product?
If you are looking to take advantage of the benefits of CBD oil for your whole body, you will want to choose a CBD supplement like a CBD oil concentrate, CBD liquid, CBD tincture, CBD vape, CBD capsules, and more that are absorbed internally and spread through the body by the bloodstream.
If you want to use CBD oil on your hair and skin, then you will want to try one of our topical products, including our CBD salve, shampoo and conditioner, and body lotion. In these products, CBD is absorbed by the skin and hair follicles. Because it never makes it to the bloodstream, CBD benefits are focused on where the topical is applied.
How much CBD are you looking for?
CBD hemp oil dietary supplements vary greatly in CBD concentrations, from as low as about 1 mg of CBD per serving, all the way up to 225 mg or more per serving. This wide range and variety of serving size options allows you to find the amount of CBD that you prefer.
CBD dietary supplements are clearly marked with suggested serving sizes, as well as the amount of CBD per serving. This way, you can easily determine how much CBD you are getting.
Some products, like Dixie Botanicals Dew Drops ™, have a relatively low amount of CBD per suggested serving, while others, like Real Scientific Hemp Oil ™ Maximum Strength, have some of the highest CBD per suggested serving available. You can learn more about picking the right potency product here.
How much CBD should I start with?
When it comes to CBD, a little tends to go a long way. Many people are happy with a few milligrams a few times per day, and the longer you take it, the stronger the benefits can be. Additionally, CBD dietary supplements tend to increase in price as the amount of CBD increases. With this in mind, we suggest starting with a low concentration supplement and then working your way up to a more concentrated product if desired. You can learn more about CBD serving sizes here.
