04 Aug What CBD Oil Should I Use as Part of My Supplement Routine?
If you’ve decided to begin a CBD oil supplement routine, then you are already aware of the many benefits CBD provides the body. However, faced with the many products on the market, you may be asking yourself, “What CBD Oil Should I Use?”
HempMeds® CBD supplements are available as pure hemp oils, tinctures, capsules, MCT oil-based liquids, and even topical salves from popular brands like RSHO™ and Dixie Botanicals®. When selecting the right CBD hemp oil product for you, there are a few things you need to consider before making your choice.
First is potency. What quantities of CBD do you wish to take each day? There is no “average” serving of CBD, and your individual serving will vary depending on your needs. Our products range from just over 1 mg to up to 190 mg per serving. We also offer products in a range of application methods that affect how CBD is absorbed.
The next factor to consider is taste. As a plant extract with no artificial additives, our pure hemp oil has a natural earthy “green flavor”. While many of our products come unflavored, retaining this natural profile, others are flavored with essential oils in flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint for those looking for alternatives to hemp oil’s taste. Our hemp oil is also available in easy to swallow capsules for a fast, taste-free supplement.
Another component in choosing the HempMeds® product that is best for you is price. With our products, typically, the more you spend, the higher the CBD concentration in the product will be. Regardless of the cost of our products, they all contain our same high quality, Triple Lab Tested™ CBD hemp oil.
To help answer which CBD oil product you should use, we will take a closer look here at the many factors that you must consider when starting a CBD oil supplement by splitting them into two questions: how much CBD do I need and how do I want to take my CBD supplement?
How Much CBD Do I Need Each Day From My Supplement?
Knowing the target CBD number that you would like to take each day helps give you a place to start when choosing your ideal CBD oil product. Our products fall into three potencies (concentration of CBD): low, medium, and high. Selecting a product that coordinates with your desired potency ensures you purchase a product that fits your individual needs.
Our hemp oil tinctures offer the most accessible means to getting started with CBD hemp oil supplements. Registering our lowest price point among our products, our 1 oz tinctures contain the lowest concentration of CBD in our products. With around 1 mg of CBD per serving, our 1 oz tinctures are good for those looking to integrate the smallest amount of CBD into their daily routine. The tinctures in the 2 oz bottle jump to a total of 500 mg of CBD per bottle.
HempMeds® carries three tincture brands in our online shop: Real Scientific Hemp Oil™, Dixie Botanicals® and Cibdex®. Both Dixie Botanicals® and Cibdex® tinctures come in unflavored and flavored versions, including delicious all-natural vanilla, cooling peppermint, and spicy sweet cinnamon. RSHO™ tinctures only come unflavored.
For those customers looking to balance cost and potency, three of our popular brands (RSHO™, Dixie Botanicals®, and Cibdex®) carry CBD hemp oil capsules with a moderate 25 mg of CBD per capsule. These medium potency capsules contain the same CBD hemp oil as our other products, and because they are shelf stable, it is easy to take your CBD supplements with you or store them where you need them most.
Featuring the same benefits as our pure RSHO™ hemp oil in a reduced potency, another of our midrange products, RSHO™ liquid, contains 31 mg of CBD per serving. Available in Green, Blue, and Gold Label oils, RSHO™ liquid combines our flagship RSHO™ with medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil derived from wholesome coconut oil and sustainably sourced palm oil. Unlike RSHO™ pure hemp oils, RSHO™ liquid doesn’t need to be refrigerated, making it convenient to store wherever you need it most.
RSHO™ pure CBD hemp oils have our highest concentrations of CBD in the HempMeds® store and are designed to maximize cannabinoid content in each serving. However, differences in manufacturing processes result in varying potencies among the RSHO™ Green, Blue, and Gold Labels and exclusive Special Blend.
Green Label hemp oil has the lowest CBD content of our RSHO™ because the cannabinoids in the oil have not been decarboxylated, making Green Label oil higher in CBDa than our other oils, containing a total of 50 mg of CBD per serving. Our popular Blue Label RSHO™ registers in the middle of our pure hemp oil potencies, containing 85 mg of CBD per serving. Filtered Gold Label RSHO™ provides 120 mg of CBD per serving. Finally, RSHO™ Special Blend offers the highest potency of any of our products at 190 mg per half gram serving.
How Should I Take CBD Oil?
HempMeds® offers a number of methods for taking your daily CBD oil supplement to best fit your individual needs and lifestyle. Each type of absorption method possesses its own advantages, such as increased bioavailability, portability, and taste.
One of the most well-known methods for taking supplements is orally in capsule form, allowing the active ingredients to pass through the digestive system and become metabolized by the liver. This is how most of us currently take our daily vitamins and supplements. When swished down with a mouthful of water, these hemp oil capsules represent one of the most intuitive methods for taking a CBD supplement.
However, our capsules aren’t the only product that can be absorbed through ingestion. RSHO™ hemp oil liquids can be mixed into a wide variety of foods and beverages, including bulletproof coffee, allowing you to create your own unique CBD-infused edibles.
Sublingual application of CBD hemp oil occurs when the oil is held under the tongue for up to 90 seconds before being swallowed. This allows the active ingredients in our products to be absorbed by the mucus membranes in the mouth, bypassing the digestive system and metabolization by the liver and speeding up how quickly they enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system.
Products like Dixie Botanicals® Dew Drops tinctures, RSHO™ pure hemp oils, and RSHO™ MCT oil liquids lend themselves to this method of application, as they can be held easily in the mouth before being swallowed, giving the active ingredients time to be taken up by the capillaries in the mouth.
Sublingual application of CBD hemp oil has become a popular choice among HempMeds® customers for its efficiency and ease of use since our very beginning.
Finally, some CBD hemp oil products are applied externally on the skin. These types of products are called topicals and include products like lotions and salves. When applied to the skin, the active ingredients are absorbed into the skin and interact with cells near the surface without entering the bloodstream. This allows the effects from topicals to be focused where they are needed most without waiting for the cannabinoids to travel through the body. Our Dixie Botanicals® Salvation hemp oil salve can be rubbed into trouble spots on the skin or massaged into muscles and joints.
However, HempMeds® also offers hemp oil infused bath and beauty products that provide the benefits of CBD topically to the skin and hair. Cibaderm® body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizing lotions bring the power of CBD to your shower each day. Your shower can then be followed by the complete line of anti-aging skin care products from Cannabis Beauty Defined® to nourish and protect your skin from daily damage from exposure to the environment around it.
