The Different Forms of CBD

What Are The Common Forms Of CBD Available?

A natural, healthy, and legal method for managing health concerns such as anxiety, insomnia, or chronic pain, cannabidiol (CBD) has exploded in popularity within the past few years, going from a niche market to a major industry. You can get CBD in many places, including some major chains. You can even give some CBD products to your pets if they are experiencing the same symptoms as you! However, there are lots of options, and not all of them may give you the best quality relief. If you are overwhelmed by the choices, you should know what are the advantages and disadvantages of each particular form of CBD.

Grown from natural hemp in southwestern Virginia, TruHarvest hemp plants produce many forms of CBD treatments, all of which can provide relief for physical and mental ailments. How do you apply different types of TruHarvest CBD products, and which is the best for your specific issues?

CBD Edibles

When you think of cannabis plants like hemp, you probably think of how often they have been turned into a sweet treat. Brownies, cookies, and gummies are common across almost every medical dispensary due to their popular, easy application. Many people who use CBD prefer to eat edibles because the taste is better than an oil. The primary drawback of edibles is the time it takes to work their way through your digestion; it may take a few hours before an edible begins to provide relief, whereas a tincture or cream creates an immediate effect. 

TruHarvest CBD edibles take two forms: our full-spectrum and isolate gummies, and our individual strips. The gummies are either made of pure CBD (isolate) or contain the natural plant materials of hemp (full-spectrum). A full-spectrum gummy may be better for someone who prefers hemp materials, like the terpenes which give it flavor, while an isolate gummy may be better for someone who prefers CBD only. Both contain 25mg of CBD in each gummy and are available in packs of 10, 20, and 30.

TruHarvest breath strips tend to work faster because they dissolve much more quickly, which is why they contain a slightly lower level of CBD (10mg per serving) than the gummies. Strips are an excellent solution for a CBD dose ahead of a particular schedule: our CBD sleep strips are ideal to take before dozing off, while the CBD energy strips can be helpful ahead of a challenging task.

CBD Tinctures

CBD oil taken from hemp concentrate can be quickly and effectively consumed orally in a tincture. Tinctures are quite popular among CBD fans because they can provide instant relief. Unlike the CBD that is cooked into a gummy, tinctures of pure oil can rapidly begin to treat problems by adding drops to the underside of your tongue. Tinctures, furthermore, make it very easy to dose, because they contain a measurement apparatus, meaning that you can determine just how much is useful for you without going overboard. Since they are quickly absorbed by the bloodstream, CBD from a tincture spreads throughout your entire body, affecting everything from pain to insomnia instead of addressing a specific area. A person with multiple physical or mental health issues may prefer a tincture because it can provide the greatest benefit to many separate ailments.

Their versatility and their rapid effectiveness only comes with slight drawbacks: it does not taste very pleasant, although it can be added to foods or drinks, or is flavored to mask the taste.

TruHarvest tinctures come in different strengths, from 300mg to 1000mg. Like gummies, they are available either as full-spectrum or as isolates, and they also have different flavors, including the new cinnamon CBD tincture

CBD Creams

If you want CBD that targets a specific area of your body, CBD creams are likely the best choice. A cream contains the processed hemp in a delivery that is quickly absorbed by your skin, just like sunscreen quickly provides skin protection on a bright day as you rub it in. However, for targeted delivery, CBD creams are excellent for concerns like joint injuries, pulled muscles, or post-workout relief. Choose a cream if you want relief for a particular area of your body. A topical cream can be combined with other herbal treatments, like a eucalyptus balm, to amplify CBD’s natural healing power.

Creams do have some drawbacks. CBD cream does not provide as much mental relief or sleep aid as a tincture or edible might, since the cream does not quickly move through the body. Furthermore, since the extraction process of CBD to cream is less efficient than normal oils, you get less efficiency overall. 

TruRelief CBD muscle cream is an excellent treatment for common muscle concerns like pain or inflammation. It reduces soreness after exercise, workouts, or simply running around after young kids.
