Love CBD? Try These 7 Interesting Products

Are you already a fan of cannabidiol (CBD) and want to check out some new or interesting ways to get this wonderful, therapeutic substance into your system? If you’ve been consuming CBD for a while, you’ve likely tried all the usual suspects: capsules, tinctures, and oils. These are the most common delivery methods, but there are additional ways to take cannabidiol that might appeal to you.

1. CBD suppositories

There are many different types of CBD suppositories – some containing full spectrum oils with THC and some that are THC-free. If you like variety, Pacific Roots has a great selection of CBD products, including vegan suppositories that are USDA Farm Bill compliant.

Suppositories are one of the best, yet most underrated ways to deliver CBD into the bloodstream. If you haven’t tried this method, you’ll be impressed. Not only does cannabidiol absorb into the bloodstream faster when taken vaginally or rectally, but it provides specific effects that you won’t get from other delivery methods. Namely, localized relief from pain, like menstrual cramps, vaginal pain, endometriosis, PCOS, and hemorrhoids.

Different formulations can have different and unique effects, so it’s worth trying several types to see what works best for you. For instance, the cannabidiol content in each suppository can contain 50mg, 75mg, and even 100mg. Since suppositories bypass digestion, you’ll get the full benefits of all the CBD you take.

2. Hemp CBD cigarettes

Did you know there are CBD cigarettes available? They’re basically just high-potency CBD hemp flowers rolled in paper like tobacco, except you’re smoking hemp rich in cannabidiol. Because you’re smoking it, you’re getting the CBD delivered into your bloodstream quickly and efficiently through your lungs.

If you choose to smoke CBD, make sure you choose a product that is made with organically grown hemp flowers. Smoking organic substances is extremely important because any impurities or toxins in what you smoke will go directly into your bloodstream with the CBD and you can end up absorbing things you wouldn’t want to put into your body otherwise.

However, choose your CBD cigarette brand wisely and make sure you can trust their claims of growing organic hemp. The problem is that the USDA won’t officially certify any form of hemp as organic (yet), so you’ll need to take the company at their word. This will change if H.R.3617 passes the Senate and gets signed into law by the president. You can find some of the best-legalized products on the Organic CBD Nugs website.

3. CBD topicals

There are so many different topicals to choose from, so it can be hard to know where to start. Topicals are an excellent way to get CBD if you don’t like the taste or texture of oils and tinctures, or if you have an aversion to swallowing capsules or just don’t want to eat the additional sugar or flour that comes with edibles.

Topicals are also great for getting spot relief on certain areas of your body. For example, people use CBD salves on their neck, knees, hands, wrists, and elbows to alleviate pain in those specific areas.

To get the most out of CBD topicals, it’s important to find a product that is strong enough to do the job. If you don’t have much pain to relieve, you can probably get by with a lower concentration of CBD. However, if you have more pain, a higher concentrated product is ideal.

Technically, you can always just use more of a less concentrated product to get the same results, but why bother when you can get a higher potency product? You’ll also spend less money that way when you account for how much extra product you’ll need to use to make up for a low potency topical.

4. CBD patches

Transdermal patches are an excellent way to deliver substances into the bloodstream, and CBD is no exception. Patches aren’t new, and if you’re not sure if they work, you’ll be happy to know that transdermal patches are a well-known and reliable delivery method. CBD patches work just like the patches people use to stop smoking, except they deliver cannabidiol into the bloodstream.

Patches are yet another excellent way to bypass the digestive system and make sure you get more of the CBD instead of losing some of it in the body’s processes. If you need every milligram of CBD you can get, patches will be a surprisingly efficient way for you to get your CBD.

5. Make your own CBD oil

If you’ve used it before, you know that you’re limited in terms of what you can find. For example, you can’t always find the right flavor with your preferred carrier oil, which can make consuming your oil less-than pleasant.

The good news is you can make your own CBD oil using hemp flower and coconut oil (or another carrier oil if that’s your preference). Coconut oil is one of the best carrier oils because you can eat it and absorb it into your skin. Coconut oil is also moisturizing for the skin, which makes it perfect for topical use.

It’s fairly easy to make, but the thing you have to be cautious of is starting with decarboxylated and not raw CBD. Reason being, you need the CBDA to convert into CBD. This happens through the decarboxylation process.

It’s recommended that you use your homemade coconut-based CBD oil within one year to avoid having your CBD degrade.

6. CBD crystals

If you really need a strong source of CBD, smoking CBD crystals will give you exactly what you want. Most people who smoke CBD in pure form do so to get relief from some serious pain like serious back issues or surgical procedures. Of all the delivery methods, this one holds the most potential for fast and intense effects.

7. CBD beauty products

They are a form of topical, but they have a different purpose so they’re worth mentioning separately. People have been using cannabidiol in moisturizers, face creams, face oils, and body butters for a long time in the United States. The amazing thing is these products have finally made their way to Dubai, which is pretty impressive.

What’s your preferred CBD delivery method?

If you already have a favorite delivery method, try branching out to try some new options. You just might find something that works better or that will give you a variety of options to choose from when you need CBD for different purposes.
