    What Is CBD?

    CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound found in the Cannabis Sativa plant - also known as the Hemp plant.

    These compounds interact with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors that are found throughout our central and peripheral nervous systems and help to pass messages along numerous pathways to help regulate your body and it’s core functions.

    These messages and interactions are important for homeostasis, which is the body’s ability to function properly regardless of what we’re doing or any changes in the environment.

    An example of this is when our body creates sweat to help control the body’s temperature or regulates our blood pressure when we go from sitting to standing.

    The ECS works to balance our healthy functions and CBD appears to help this balancing process to work effectively.

    What Form Of CBD Is Most Effective?

    Unfortunately, not all CBD products are created equal.

    The method by which we ingest or use CBD has an impact on its effectiveness, so it’s also important to consider the way you’re taking CBD.
    We can measure how effective a product is by using its bioavailability.

    Bioavailability is defined as “the proportion of a drug or other substance which enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so is able to have an active effect.” Put simply, if a product has a bioavailability of 1% then 99% of the active ingredient’s effects are going to waste, so the higher the percentage bioavailability the more effective the product will be.

    Here’s the bioavailability for some of the most popular methods used to take CBD:

    • CBD One Absorb Range: 99%
    • CBD One Complete+ 40%
    • CBD One Release Patches: 40%+
    • Vaping: ~30%
    • CBD One Oil Drops: 12%
    • CBD One Hatcha: 10%
    • Capsules & Gummies: ~3%
    • CBD Bath Bombs: <1%

     

    As you can see, the most effective way to take CBD - the method with the highest bioavailability - is by using a water-soluble CBD like those found in our Absorb range. These allow you to turn any drink into a CBD drink and will help you use 99% of the available CBD.

    It is a testament to how good CBD is that even with the oil drops having relatively low bioavailability they are remarkably effective.

    In contrast, some of the worst ways to use CBD are with products like CBD capsules and gummies, or by taking a bath with a CBD bath bomb. Much of the CBD in these products is going to waste, and unfortunately, these products aren’t much more than an effective way of flushing money down the drain.

    What Strength CBD Oil Should I Use?

    Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules about which strength of CBD oil or product is suitable for any individual person.

    It all comes down to personal preference and tolerance, so there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach that works best.

    While there is nothing wrong with starting on a lower strength product and working up, we recommend that our customers start with a middle strength product when first testing the waters with CBD.

    This is simply because starting on a low strength product could lead to the assumption that the CBD is not working when the reality is that a stronger product would have made a difference.

    In the same way that you should stick to a diet for a month before deciding how effective it is, it’s also important to stick with CBD products for an extended period in order to decide whether it’s the right choice for you.

    How Do I Find A Good CBD Product?

    While there are plenty of legitimate brands selling CBD products, there are still some that choose to be liberal with the truth about their products.

    Here are some things to look out for when choosing a CBD product.

    Check It Actually Contains CBD

    No, we’re not joking. It’s important to know that there is a difference between CBD Oil, Hemp Oil, and Hemp Seed Oil.

    While many businesses, ourselves included, use Hemp Seed Oil as a carrier oil, we’ve seen far too many businesses online selling Hemp Seed Oil labelled as “Hemp Oil.”

    Unfortunately, while Hemp Seed Oil is incredibly nutritious, people buying from these businesses are paying for products that don’t contain any active ingredients.

    Is The CBD Content Clear?

    Products that contain CBD will have the CBD content clearly displayed, so don’t hand over your money unless that’s the case.

    Look for brands that clearly state the CBD content for each of their products in milligrams (mg) of CBD.

    Using percentages can be confusing, and some businesses state the extract content and not the CBD content, which can be misleading.

    Make Sure It’s Lab Verified

    Any reputable CBD business will be able to provide you with lab reports that verify the cannabinoid profiles of the products being sold.

    These help to ensure that you’re buying products that actually contain the active ingredients you’re paying for, so be wary of any brand that is unwilling to provide you with these for verification.

    The Bottom Line

    Despite a surge in popularity over the past few years, there are still shady businesses that are trying to take advantage of customers who are unaware of the differences between the numerous products available.

    Hopefully, this brief overview has helped to answer some of your questions, but if you want to get an idea of the type of products that might be right for you then the quick quiz at the top of this page will help.

    Which CBD oil is for you?
