We Explain the Different CBD Forms and Pros and Cons of Each

CBD (one of the 113 CBD forms extracted from hemp) is everywhere and is used for everything (for example, you’ve probably heard of CBD oil).

There is even evidence that it now supports CBD as an effective anti-cancer method (partially). It has also been proven to help treat seizure disorders. You’ve probably heard of CBD (cannabidiol) but you probably haven’t heard that.

When people think of CBD, they tend to think of a stigma, due to its connection to marijuana and THC; however, CBD is the non-stoner version of THC (with levels below 0.3%).

It provides all of the benefits of medical marijuana without the psychedelic side effects.

Now that CBD is being legalized all over the nation (even in the states that haven’t legalized medical marijuana), a lot of companies are getting into the CBD game. With so many options (not just regarding brand), it’s really hard to decide where to start—with all the forms of CBD, which one is right for you?

Not only does the administration of CBD in different ways produce different results, but the different CBD forms will affect you differently as well.

But first, let’s decide if CBD is something you would like to try.

What CBD Appears to Treat

While more research is needed to determine the more extensive (and long-term) benefits of using CBD, many resources have reported it for helping with the following:

The Different Types of CBD

The following terms refer to the makeup of cannabinoids in the product (THC for example):

  1. Isolate

Some products contain a purified CBD molecule known as CBD isolate. These products only contain CBD and have a white and powdery appearance.

  1. Full-spectrum

This refers to cannabis taken from the whole plant containing CBN, CBC, THCA, CBG, and THC—so it contains additional terpenes and cannabinoids.

CBD itself has a wider range of effects but each additional sub-category (such as naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids) has more specific benefits that range from the stimulation of appetite to pain relief—this may produce an entourage effect or the powerful effect of combining CBD.

This will make the effects more powerful.

  1. Broad-spectrum

This type contains all of the phytocannabinoids besides THC.

  1. Hemp Seed Oil

If you hear someone talk about hemp seed oil, know that it does not contain CBD or any phytocannabinoids. Although this does not have the same effects as CBD, it has been known to improve things like concentration, mood, and nerve-related discomfort.

CBD Forms

  • Topicals/Creams/Lotions

These take effect over time and are used for things like exercise injuries—apply/use as needed.

  • Vapes

Long term effects of e-cigs and vaping are still virtually unknown; however, the effect of smoking is much more immediate.

  • CBD Tinctures & CBD Oil

  • Gummies & Capsules

  • CBD & Pets

CBD products are safe for animals/pets; their bodies are able to process the substance the same way humans do.

Pros & Cons of CBD

The pros and cons depend on the person and CBD forms—how your body will react to the different types. However, there are no proven long-term adverse effects.

Starting at smaller doses is recommended and should be taken daily for the most specific/noticeable results (excluding topicals).

CBD can potentially help you live a happier and healthier life; they’re basically vitamins in that they will make some people feel sick and others great.

Given the lack of research surrounding new array of products, implementing CBD into your routine is as much a matter of trial and error as experimenting with different types of soap or hair-care.
