13 Feb Why CBD Products Are Perfect for Vape Shops
Consumers are clamoring for access to CBD, leading many vape shops to add CBD oil products to their inventory.
CBD products have taken the country by storm as a federally legal, non-psychoactive way to take advantage of the cannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp and marijuana.
Pulling in over $170 million in 2016, the hemp derived CBD oil market is expected to grow to $1 billion by 2020. More and more, vape shops and smoke shops are adding both vapable and orally consumed CBD products to their shelves to stake their share of this ballooning market. Is there room in your shop to capitalize on the demand for CBD oil products?
What is CBD Oil?
CBD is one of over 100 currently known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Along with additional valuable compounds, like vitamins, minerals, terpenes, and of course, other trace cannabinoids, CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant as a thick, viscous hemp oil. This hemp oil can be processed into wide range of CBD products that can be used to boost feelings of calm and wellbeing.
When CBD oil is extracted from low-THC hemp, the resulting products are non-psychoactive and safe to use by all your customers. CBD oil products come in a variety of consumption types, such as capsules, tinctures, topical salves, vaporizers, pure hemp oil oral applicators, and more. These daily use products provide all the benefits of CBD with none of the worry over THC from marijuana products.
We discuss the differences between hemp and marijuana in further detail here.
When CBD oil products are used, cannabinoids like CBD are absorbed by the body where they make their way to the bloodstream and are transported throughout the body to interact with special cannabinoid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Known as the endocannabinoid system, this series of neurotransmitters and receptors are responsible for maintaining an optimal balance within the body through the manipulation of functions like appetite and metabolism, sleep, immune response, mood, and more. Users of CBD oil products often report an overall wellbeing and a sense of relaxation.
Other CBD Oil Products from HempMeds®
We offer a number of other CBD oil products – including tinctures and liquids, topicals salves, pure hemp oils, and capsules – of varying potencies and price points that can fit the needs of CBD oil consumers or act as impulse purchases for curious shoppers.
Pure CBD Hemp Oils:
Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) is our CBD hemp oil in its most unadulterated form. A thick, viscous oil, RSHO™ contains high levels of CBD, up to 120 mg per serving, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other trace cannabinoids. Perfect for those looking for the highest concentration of CBD in their product, RSHO™ is available in 3 labels (Green, Blue, and Gold) and provides high-CBD hemp oil with minimal processing.
Learn more about the differences between RSHO™ Green, Blue, and Gold Labels here.
While our RSHO™ pure hemp oil is our most potent products, our tinctures are our least potent. Made with the same hemp oil as our other products, our tinctures are mixed with vegetable glycerine or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil to give them a thinner consistency and lower overall strength between 1 mg and 10.5 mg per serving.
RSHO™, Dixie Botanicals®, and Cibdex® all feature tinctures in their brand. While RSHO™ tinctures are unflavored, Dixie Botanicals® and Cibdex® offer all-natural flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint, in addition to an unflavored option.
Our RSHO™ brand also carries a line of liquid products. RSHO™ Liquid is made by combining our pure hemp oil with MCT oil for a mid-potency product that combines the benefits of pure RSHO™ hemp oil with the ease and portability of tinctures. Because RSHO™ Liquid is made using sustainable coconut oil, it can easily be added to your favorite foods and beverages or taken on a spoon.
Several of our brands (RSHO™, Dixie Botanicals®, and Cibdex®) also offer our CBD hemp oil in capsule form for unrivaled ease and portability. It is easy to slip these hemp oil capsules in among your daily vitamins without much change to your day.
For customers with a preference, RSHO™ capsules come in Green, Blue, and Gold Labels, contain 25 mg of CBD each, and are combined with 200 mg of calcium and 200 mg of our proprietary blend of powdered turmeric root and white willow bark for added botanical effects.
Designed for external use, CBD hemp oil topicals are a popular option among customers new to hemp oil products. Rubbed into the desired area, topicals are absorbed into the skin for localized benefits and never make it into the bloodstream.
RSHO™ CBD hemp oil salve and Dixie Botanicals® Hemp oil Salvation Balm offer 50 mg of CBD per jar. Massaged into the skin, muscles, and joints, these topicals combine full-spectrum hemp oil with ingredients like beeswax, camphora essential oils, and cedarwood and lavender oils to revitalize muscles and nourish the skin.
