1. Different Types of CBD Oil Products

 

In the following section, we’ll discuss CBD oil, tinctures, and topicals. By the end, you’ll be an expert on CBD oils. This information will not only help you impress your friends, but it’ll also help you buy the right CBD products for you

The first thing you should know is that legal CBD oil products are made from industrial hemp in the US. This strain of the Cannabis sativa L. plant contains small amounts of CBD and little to no THC. So we are reviewing all of these products in the context of legal CBD in America.

Legal CBD oil products are made from industrial hemp in the US.

1.1 Hemp Seed Oil

Don’t be tricked by hemp seed oil products: they contain no CBD. They are ultimately just cooking oils—which is great if that’s what you want. Just don’t expect them to be CBD oil products.

1.2 CBD Oil

The main things to pay attention to are the ingredients and the extraction process used to create the CBD oil products. Most CBD products are made using CO2 extraction methods, but others do exist. The carrier oil used in CBD oils can vary, but it usually involves MCT oil. (Click to Tweet)

When discussing CBD oil, it is critical to learn the difference between isolates and the other “spectrum” options out there. We’ll discuss this topic first to get everyone on the same page.

1.3 Isolates, Full Spectrum, and Broad Spectrum

You’ll likely hear these terms thrown around a lot in the CBD industry. Luckily, the terms aren’t too difficult to understand.

CBD ISOLATES

“Isolates” refers to products made by extraction methods that only pull out CBD compounds. The end results are products that contain only CBD compounds along with other added ingredients, such as MCT oil.

BROAD-SPECTRUM CBD PRODUCTS

When it comes to broad-spectrum products, these generally contain a few additional cannabinoids or terpenes that are also extracted from the starting material along with CBD. Generally speaking, there is not a big difference between broad- and full-spectrum products, as you’ll see up next.

Broad-spectrum products contain additional cannabinoids or terpenes that are also extracted from the starting material along with CBD oil.

FULL-SPECTRUM CBD PRODUCTS

Full-spectrum CBD products are said to contain everything that the hemp plant contains. These products will often contain an assortment of minor cannabinoids and plenty of terpenes. (Click to Tweet)

Examples of our full-spectrum CBD products include our Natural Tincture and Cinnamint Tincture. If you take a look at the test results accompanying these products, you’ll find other minor cannabinoids and terpenes packed inside. 

Full-spectrum CBD oil products are said to contain everything that the hemp flower contains.

2. CBD Oil Delivery Methods

 

Now that you understand the main types of CBD, it is time to talk about delivery methods. In the following sections, you’ll learn all about:

2.1 CBD Capsules

Are you looking for all the benefits of CBD oil without having to ever taste it? Well, in that case, CBD capsules would be just right for you. These products contain basically the same great CBD oil as discussed above but stored nicely in easy-to-swallow capsules.

For those out there avoiding animal products, our CBD Capsules use vegetable-based capsules to meet your needs. Read other product descriptions carefully, as many other capsules out there do not come with the same advantage.

2.2 CBD Tinctures

The term “CBD tinctures” is basically synonymous with CBD oil. While the term used to describe non-oil products such as alcohol-based cannabinoid extractions, in modern days, the term “tincture” is used with no real difference from CBD oil.

The main thing to pay attention to with CBD tinctures is potency. The more CBD inside the product, the less of it you have to use to get the same dosage. Keep this fact in mind when comparing various CBD products. (Click to Tweet)

Whether you require a high dose or a tiny one, it doesn’t matter, as you can simply adjust the amount consumed. Check out our 3600mg CBD Tincture to see what a high-potency CBD product looks like.

2.3 Liposomal CBD

In a more recent creation, we at SOL*CBD have used breakthrough technology to create an advanced Liposomal CBD product. You can think of liposomes as little bubbles that surround CBD compounds. The purpose of this modification is to increase bioavailability so that you make the most of the CBD you consume. 

Furthermore, this formulation helps to speed up the amount of time needed for effects to occur. Check out our Fastest-Acting Liposomal CBD for more details on how these products make dosing quick and easy. Ensure that you consider the use of advanced processing technology when comparing prices between CBD products.

2.4 CBD Topicals

As opposed to CBD oils that are swallowed, there is also a wide variety of topical CBD products. These topicals contain various types of CBD extractions, such as isolate or full spectrum, depending on the company. The addition of cosmetic ingredients creates topicals that are quick and easy to rub on your skin. 

The benefits of using CBD topicals include specific applications of CBD on areas of concern. Whether these concerns relate to your skin or the muscles below it, CBD topicals can be a great alternative to CBD oils. (Click to Tweet

3. Choosing the Right CBD Oil Products

 

With all of the options available, it can seem like a daunting task to pick the right CBD product for you. When making choices about CBD, consider the product, the reason you’re taking it, and the delivery method. (Click to Tweet)

First, the right product is one that contains everything it says it does. Always look for CBD products that come with third-party laboratory tests to help you make the right choice. 

Often, a major decision is whether to go THC-free or with products containing under 0.3% THC. Determining which one of these is right for you will depend on your situation, your needs, and your health status.

Second, take some time to reflect on the reason you’re taking it. If you’re looking for the benefits of CBD, ensure that the product contains the right amount of CBD for that purpose. We’ll consider using CBD for sleep in the next section.

Third, consider the delivery method for your CBD and whether you want a local effect or overall impacts. For example, consuming oral CBD will allow the CBD to circulate in your bloodstream and have overall effects. This is contrasted by topical CBD creams, such as our Extra Care Formula, which are used for issues related to specific areas of skin or the muscles beneath.

Some people like to smoke products with CBD, but many more want to avoid smoking. For those wanting to avoid smoking or vaping, there are so many product options out there for you. Without ever touching a lighter, you can easily get all the CBD you need through topical, oral, and edible CBD products.

3.1 CBD for Sleep

Sleep is a major concern for most of us, and getting enough can be tough. We discussed above how you should select your goals, and so let’s imagine you picked getting better sleep.

Some products may be better for nighttime use compared to daytime use, such as our Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD. Furthermore, the timing of dosing is also important, as you want the effects to last throughout the night. This is where a well-formulated product will ensure you get the consistent dose of CBD you need.

Keeping this goal in mind, you would obviously prefer the global effects of a CBD oil over the local effects of a topical CBD product. Finally, you’ll want to pick the right dosage. A good starting point for this would be around 25mg of CBD, but this number can vary from person to person.

3.2 CBD for Pets

A final group of CBD products varies only slightly, but in one important way. These products are made for pets so that your animal companion can also enjoy CBD. Keep in mind that some products are intended for specific pets. Also, as with humans, if there are pre-existing medical conditions, seek out professional guidance. 

We included our advanced liposomal technology to make CBD pet products even better. The result is a product that helps your pet more quickly and efficiently—for example, our Liposomal CBD Oil for Dogs and Cats.

4. Why Should You Be Selective in Choosing CBD Products?

 

CBD products in the US must be made from industrial hemp and only contain 0.3% THC by dry weight. The FDA has expressed concern with the non-approved therapeutic and medical claims made by CBD companies. Furthermore, the FDA is concerned that these products may put patients at risk, may not be effective, and may not be safe. [1]

Moreover, there are serious concerns that companies are selling CBD products that do not meet the THC requirement. Having products with unexpected THC content can lead to potentially dangerous situations and unwanted drug test results.

It is essential that you know what is inside your CBD product. Buying online should only be done from reputable sources to avoid potential scams out there. Remember not to fall for hemp seed oil products masquerading as CBD oil products.

Only buy products that come with third-party independent laboratory tests and that are straightforward with labeling. Overall, there is plenty of reason to be selective when buying CBD products(Click to Tweet)

Another reason for demanding laboratory results is the fact that some CBD products can contain harmful contaminants. These include metals, pesticides, and other potentially dangerous compounds.

Since CBD oil is a relatively new product, people online may be easily confused by reckless marketing activities. Ensure that you learn the facts so you can protect yourself from the fakers and con artists out there. We put a lot of effort into our educational content so you can get the facts for yourself. 

Finally, another reason to be selective with your CBD products is your health status. There are potential issues with CBD interacting with certain pharmaceuticals. If you have a medical condition or are taking a pharmaceutical (especially one with a narrow therapeutic window), strongly consider discussing CBD with your doctor and pharmacist.

5. Soaring Cannabidiol Demand Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

 

With the current global pandemic wreaking havoc, many businesses are struggling. However, certain companies are seeing soaring demand, such as the CBD oil industry. (Click to Tweet)

For example, in the UK, there is evidence to suggest that 8 million Britons are now buying CBD products. Based on current estimates, the CBD industry in the UK may see a 50% growth in sales compared to 2019. [2]

Why the sudden spike?

While it’s largely speculation at this point, many are connecting the stress and impacts of COVID-19 to this increase in CBD sales. With more troubles sleeping, increased anxiety, and overburdened healthcare systems, many are turning to CBD for relief. [2]

This change is also a result of the growing interest in non-pharmaceutical health and wellness products in the UK and worldwide. It is worth noting that the top reason for using CBD has stayed the same currently. About 42% of those who use CBD use it to manage or relieve pain. [2]

Questions remain around whether this spike in sales will persist beyond COVID-19. Trends suggest that the popularity of CBD will only continue to grow. That said, the growth may not maintain this same rate in a world without COVID-19.

6. A Fool’s Errand: Banning CBD Products and the FDA

 

With the massive growth in interest around CBD, the concept of cracking down on this industry becomes more implausible. More regulation of the CBD industry will likely one day occur. As long as these regulations help people stay safe without restricting options, they should be encouraged.

This is crazy but amazing:

Even cancer doctor and Commissioner Stephen Hahn of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes this fact. Earlier this year, Hahn described the idea of pulling CBD products off the market as a fool’s errand. 

Earlier this year, Stephen Hahn described the idea of pulling CBD products off the market as a fool’s errand.

“We’re not going to be able to say you can’t use these products. It’s a fool’s game to try to even approach that.” 

Hahn noted that people are using CBD products all over the USA. Since the implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill, this fact has become undeniable and largely unstoppable. For these reasons, the FDA admits that it is not planning any industry-wide crackdown anytime soon. [3]

After the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp scored a huge victory. For the first time in a very long time, industrial hemp became a federally legal industry in the US. Since this time, there has been much discussion about how the FDA will regulate CBD products for human consumption. [3]

The FDA is still working on this process, determining how to regulate foods and nutritional supplements containing CBD. Sadly, the process is said to be a multi-year affair without congressional action. [3]

What the FDA is doing, however, is cracking down on those making outlandish health claims. As with other products, consumers are protected against products making unsubstantiated health and medical claims. This is the area where the FDA has made the largest impact. [3]

Turning to Congress, there have been attempts at creating federal legislation, but none have been successful as of yet. Unless more ground is covered on the political side of this debate, don’t expect to see much movement from the FDA on the regulatory side of the CBD industry. [3]

7. Final Thoughts on CBD Oil Products

 

Now that you have all the information you need, making the right choice will be easier than ever. As discussed, ensure that you buy the right products for your needs. And don’t forget to check out the ingredients and make sure the product comes with a third-party laboratory test result.

With expanding interest in CBD products and no signs of FDA interference in the near future, it looks like the CBD industry is only going to grow larger. As more companies jump into this arena, protect yourself by doing your research and make sure products live up to expectations.

Do your research to be sure you buy the right CBD products for your needs that live up to expectations.
