What CBD Capsules Can Do for You (2020 Review)

Are you looking for an easy and effective way to take CBD? In that case, CBD capsules are a superb choice. They’re especially good if you’re familiar with other supplements, or not acquainted with vaping or smoking. 

Not to mention, capsules are more cost-effective than vaping as you don’t need any extra equipment, and come without the negative health effects of smoking. Just to clarify, that doesn’t mean these products don’t also offer awesome advantages.

In this comprehensive guide to CBD capsules, we’ll cover everything from the specific benefits of these products, to the capsules we have available and some dosage recommendations. We know you’ve probably got lots of questions about capsules, too, so have answered a bunch of them in the second half of this post. 

Whether you’re completely new to CBD, or are simply looking for a new way to enjoy this non-intoxicating supplement, this post is sure to have something for you! 

An introduction to CBD 

But first, what even is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, and is an intriguing compound found in hemp strains. CBD doesn’t get you “stoned”, unlike marijuana, which is arguably its main draw. The psychoactive effects of cannabis are reserved to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In the United States, all hemp and CBD products must have no more than 0.3% THC, hence why they cannot be used for recreational purposes. 

CBD’s popularity has bloomed in recent years. The cannabinoid has been attributed with numerous health benefits, which come from CBD’s unusual effects on the body. For one, CBD is active in the new and fascinating endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a biological network that is perfect for interacting with cannabinoids. 

CBD science is still in its formative stages. But loosely, the compound has a regulating and modulating effect on the ECS. And considering the ECS helps regulate pain perception, inflammation, mood, appetite, cognition, bone health and the body’s sleep-wake cycle, it’s no wonder CBD may have so many benefits. And that’s not all, studies have also shown CBD working on other parts of the body, such as the serotonin and opioid systems. 

It will likely be years before we know for sure just how useful CBD is for various ailments. But the bottom line is that millions of Americans – and millions more around the world – are already using products and reaping their rewards! 

What are CBD capsules? 

There are two main types of CBD capsule: hard-shelled and soft CBD gel capsules. Both serve the same purpose – holding a set dose of CBD (and perhaps other natural extracts), and delivering it into the body. As a rule, hard-shelled capsules contain dry powdered CBD-isolate, whereas soft gel capsules contain CBD oil (either isolate or full-spectrum). 

Capsules typically have a faster rate of absorption than pills, although both are down on speed of delivery compared to vape products and tincture oils. Most opt for premade capsules from well-known CBD brands, but making your own is also possible if you invest in empty shells and a capsule machine. 

CBD-isolate capsules 

These products separate the CBD from all other hemp constituents, delivering pure CBD effects. With a CBD-isolate extract, you’ll miss out on extra cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. But on the upside, you get a THC-free, drug test-friendly product. If you’re just getting your feet wet with CBD, a basic, no-frills product may hold more appeal. With pure CBD-isolate, you get the qualities of CBD, without any other compounds altering the effects.

Full-spectrum CBD capsules 

Broad or full-spectrum capsules feature a full-plant extract, and therefore everything that hemp has to give. Expect trace levels of other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including the highly-rated cannabigerol (CBG), in these products, along with therapeutic terpenes, fantastic flavonoids, and omega-3 fatty acids. 

This cocktail of compounds enhances CBD’s properties, although tends to come at a higher price tag. Full-spectrum CBD capsules can contain up to 0.3% THC. This may create a small drug test risk for heavy users, as the body takes a few weeks to fully remove this compound. But such low amounts of THC, combined with a big dose of CBD, will never produce an intoxicating effect.

Reasons to use CBD capsules 

Of course, the main reason to use CBD products is for the CBD itself. But when presented with such a wide choice of hemp flower, vape juice, edible, concentrate, syrup and capsule products, just why exactly should you choose the latter? Here are a few capsule perks that keep users coming back for more. 

Easy to take 

Firstly, CBD oil capsules are super easy to take, as there’s no preparation or extra equipment needed. All that’s required is a capsule or two – depending on how much you want to take – and a glass of water to help it go down. Taking a capsule with food can help to improve absorption rates into the bloodstream. If you find hard-shelled capsules too difficult to swallow, keep your eyes peeled for soft gel CBD capsules. 

Steady and sustained relief 

All substances are absorbed at different rates, with speed of delivery determined on how you take them. CBD is no exception. Capsules are a form of oral intake, with the CBD only activating in the bloodstream after the capsule is digested and the CBD absorbed through the stomach. The first-pass effect (or first-pass metabolism) also holds influence with orally-taken drugs. This affects how much of the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream. 

It takes a while for CBD levels ingested via capsules to peak because of the delayed effects. However, this may be beneficial for some, as the slower release ensures CBD’s benefits are sustained for many hours. This means a single capsule dose could last at least twice as long as a smoked or vaporized dose. 

Accurate dosing 

If you’re a CBD newcomer, you’ll likely want to know exactly how much you’re taking, right down to the milligram. We get it, with any substance, and especially a new kid on the block like CBD, you’re looking for steady and consistent effects. 

CBD capsules take all the hassle away, and you don’t need to worry about measuring out your own dosages and inaccuracy. Every capsule tub or sachet comes with full information about CBD concentrations and levels of any other compounds. Some brands even provide some dosage guidelines to make matters even easier. 

Combine CBD with other natural extracts

CBD is great on its own, but it’s potentially even better when mixed with other natural wellness compounds. For instance, CBD’s anti-inflammatory qualities may be enhanced with turmeric, and its sleep-promoting benefits boosted with a melatonin supplement. You could take these separately, but in some cases, it’s possible to find an all-in-one product.

Capsules are perfect for taking multiple extracts, as combining them is super easy and you can take them all at once. And what’s more, you still don’t have to stress about measuring out the ideal dose!

Discreet and flavorless

Sometimes, you need to take CBD on the downlow. Even though it’s completely legal, explaining the differences between CBD and cannabis eventually tests the best person’s patience! CBD capsules look just like any other multivitamin or omega-3 supplement. And they’re super discreet too, with no strong hemp or cannabis smell for anyone to get a whiff of. 

With CBD capsules, you can take CBD with you and enjoy relief wherever you are.  

Popular CBD capsules at CBDVapeJuice.net 

We only stock products at CBDVapeJuice.net which meet our high quality standards. This applies as much to our capsules section as any other. When deciding on which products meet the grade, we look for high-quality manufacturing processes, brand reputation and independent lab reports. 

Easily accessible lab reports are so important in the CBD scene, as the FDA doesn’t regulate products. This puts the responsibility on CBD companies to prove their products are legitimate and safe. Through third-party lab-testing, the best brands can set themselves apart from cowboys looking to make a quick buck with low quality products and fake CBD.

Now let’s get stuck in to the CBD capsules review. 

cbd capsulesCBD Genesis Capsules

With our own brand CBD Genesis capsules, taking CBD is super easy. There’s not a hint of hempy flavor with these, and the soft gel design ensures they go down easily. We have two strengths available – 25 and 50mg – to suit newbies and more experienced CBD users. Both the 25 and 50mg capsules come in tubs of 30, working out to 750 and 1500mg of CBD per purchase.

The lab report from Colorado Chromatography confirms Genesis Capsules are a pure CBD product. These discreet capsules are suitable for consumption at work to improve focus, on planes to alleviate anxiety and in public spaces to alleviate pain. Even better, we use a pure, organic hemp extract cultivated free from solvents and pesticides. 

ECOCaps from CBD Drip

These capsules come with a bold “enhance your life” slogan and, used correctly, they may do just that! CBD Drip is a well-known and respected brand in the CBD market. These vegan-friendly capsules contain 30mg of full-spectrum CBD, created with non-GMO, European Union-sourced hemp. 

CBD Drip tests its products by the batch, giving customers regular updates on quality. This is a great sign that the company cares about making excellent CBD products. We have two types of ECOCaps available: a sachet of two or a tub of 30. The capsules in each are exactly the same, with 30mg of CBD and a total of 170mg hemp extract per capsule. 

Not sure whether you need full-spectrum capsules? Why not start with a sachet, and then invest in a tub if they are to your liking! For our money, these are some of the best CBD capsules on the market!

Exploring CBD capsules benefits 

Before we put the microscope on CBD’s possible benefits, there are a couple things to point out first. CBD is not an approved medicine (except for Epidiolex, a CBD-based epilepsy drug). It often takes years, a ton of funding and a series of clinical trials for any drug to get approved medicinal uses. 

Therefore, we are not making any medical claims in this section. This content is written solely for educational purposes, and to improve your understanding of CBD research. CBD studies have come in dribs and drabs over the past few decades. 

But the substance is now getting more attention than ever because of its widespread use. Scientists also know more about how CBD functions in the body, with existing studies serving as a foundation for new research. The ECS is absolutely vital to this research. Until the system was discovered by Israeli scientists in the 1990s, experts were baffled as to why CBD had any effect on us. Thankfully, those dark days are over, and we’re on the cusp of a golden age of CBD research! 

CBD capsules for anxiety 

Left unchecked, anxiety has a destructive effect on quality of life. At times, its impact is subtle, making day-to-day tasks more difficult and causing irrational fears that just become normal. But over time, worrying and other kinds of negative thinking compound, making it harder to get what you want out of life. 

With social media so prominent in our lives now, and face-to-face interactions in decline, anxiety is becoming a bigger societal problems. Figures from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) show that around 18% of the US adult population experience anxiety during any given year. 

Anxiety medication works for some, but not everyone – and side effects are often off-putting. But CBD is promising to change how we look at and remedy anxiety. Making helpful tweaks to GABA levels, a key neurotransmitter in anxiety regulation, and working with the serotonin system, appears to be how CBD produces its anti-anxiety effects. And anyone who’s taken a high CBD dose knows how physically and mentally relaxing it can be.

 

CBD capsules are better suited to chronic anxiety symptoms, because of the slow release. If you’re always feeling tense and on edge, the steady delivery of CBD is very therapeutic. Although for social anxiety and acute, sudden symptoms, you may require a faster acting product.

CBD capsules for sleep

With every passing year, the importance of sleep becomes more apparent. Sure, if you don’t get good quality sleep you’ll feel groggy and shattered the next day, but that’s not all. In addition to reduced overall functioning, a lack of sleep – and crucial deep sleep – can have a lasting negative effect on the brain.

Studies show that the brain protects and heals itself in deep sleep. Cerebrospinal fluid enters the brain during this phase, clearing out harmful toxins and proteins, such as beta-amyloid plaques – that may contribute to neurodegenerative illnesses. General guidelines suggest we should aim for seven hours of sleep per night, minimum. If you aren’t getting that, CBD capsules for sleep may help. 

As we know, the CBD helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm, via the ECS. This is a complex system, but in layman’s terms, our body clock makes sure we feel sleepy and wake up at the right times! Taking a CBD capsule or two an hour or so before bed helps with winding down. CBD may have direct benefits for sleep, by easing insomnia. It may also have indirect benefits, such as quelling anxiety and stress. 

CBD capsules for pain

The vast majority of people interested in CBD want to know whether it can help with pain. The scientific evidence right now is inconclusive, but we can draw a few things from the available research. Pain perception is regulated via CB1 receptors in the ECS, and also the vanilloid receptor, which CBD binds to. 

CBD is also extremely popular for pain, according to data collected from surveys and questionnaires. A 2019 Gallup poll found that 40% of users take products to relieve pain. A huge placebo effect cannot be dismissed given all the positive media coverage about CBD. But equally, such a figure cannot be explained away by placebo alone. 

Experimenting with CBD capsules is the best way of knowing whether CBD helps with your pain. Full-spectrum products may enhance the analgesic effects, with all the other compounds having an impact. What we can say is that capsules are more suited to chronic than acute pain. Again, the slower delivery is brilliant for longevity, but not for immediate relief.

CBD capsules for inflammation 

If there is any field of medicine where CBD’s potential is still sorely untapped, it’s inflammation. Scientists have found an incredible link between the ECS and the notoriously unpredictable immune system. In a sentence, cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory properties, regulating the immune system through CB2 receptors. 

This fairly simple link and the absence of significant side effects with CBD gives the compound huge potential for inflammatory conditions and autoimmune diseases. We’re talking irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and perhaps even psoriasis. 

CBD capsules are ideal for chronic inflammation, potentially offering lengthy relief from symptoms. If you need to keep inflammation at bay at work or so it doesn’t interfere with other day-to-day tasks, a morning capsule and potentially a late afternoon top-up may work a treat. 

CBD capsules for depression

Depression is a complex and multifaceted mood disorder. Medical researchers have struggled to find good treatments over the years. Initially, it was hoped that depression could be eased by adjusting levels of serotonin and other neurotransmitters. But antidepressant drugs tend to have limited benefits, which vary from patient to patient.

Enter CBD. The hemp derivative has demonstrated early value in making therapeutic chemical tweaks, and in reducing brain inflammation. The novel chemical tweak comes, as you’d expect, in the ECS. CBD stops the body, and specifically the FAAH enzyme from breaking down anandamide, a natural antidepressant. Other classes of antidepressants don’t appear to work on the ECS or anandamide.

CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects on the brain help prevent damage to important regions implicated in depression. It may even reverse some of the adverse effects. Animal research has shown CBD has a healing effect on the prefrontal cortex. Human studies have found that CBD helps repair the hippocampus, which manages memory and learning. 

Should CBD work as an antidepressant, all CBD products (except creams) are likely to have a beneficial effect. As long as CBD enters the bloodstream, it can pass through the blood-brain barrier and into the brain. 

CBD capsules for relaxation and stress relief 

Some people buy CBD capsules just so they can feel more relaxed, rather than for any diagnosable medical condition. CBD is certainly a more attractive option than alcohol and tobacco as a natural de-stresser, as there aren’t any risks of addiction or nasty side effects.

After a long, hard day, relaxation is vital. The body needs time to rest and to lower stress levels. Indeed, research shows that many conditions are often triggered or exacerbated by stress. If relaxation doesn’t come naturally to you, then CBD capsules (50mg or more) are superb for full-body and mental relief. And you’ll probably get a great night’s sleep, too! 

CBD capsules for improved cognition

In a competitive world of fine margins, a little bit extra can make all the difference between success and failure. It’s no wonder that brain-enhancing nootropics are all the rage these days, as people seek out extra cognitive performance. But as always, it’s important to know what you’re taking, and especially when it’s having a neurological effect.

CBD and CBD capsules are an attractive “natural nootropic”, if you will. Studies point to the ECS regulating cognitive function, and we know that CBD helps with memory and learning. This is largely thanks to the positive effects that CBD has on the hippocampus. Research suggests lower CBD doses are best for extracting these cognitive qualities. Small quantities are good for wakefulness and alertness, a state you’ll need to be in if you want to focus! 

Dosage guidelines 

Knowing how much CBD to take is not an exact science. With research still in its early days, we don’t have much data yet on what dosages are most beneficial, beyond some general concepts. But in reality, that doesn’t matter too much. CBD influences us all differently, so we all have to learn on the job when coming up with the perfect dosing schedule! 

As discussed, capsules are awesome as you always know exactly how much CBD is in your dose. You’ll work out pretty quickly whether you need to increase or reduce your intake. As a rule, first-timers should start with small amounts – there are no prizes for rushing! A high dose could make you really sleepy and put you off trying CBD again! CBD capsules with 25mg are a good starting point. 

There are times when more is better. CBD research for anxiety points to higher doses having the best effects, and the same may apply to sleep. It’s logical that severe pain and inflammation is also more suited to larger amounts. But as always, what’s key is to find a dosing plan that works for you

Can CBD capsules upset your stomach?

Some people experience nausea and gastrointestinal (GI) issues after taking CBD products, including capsules, although this appears rare. However, others find that CBD helps ease nausea and vomiting symptoms, and there is some research to support this. 

It’s possible that nausea and stomach problems attributed to CBD are actually being caused by low quality and untested products. Such capsules could be full of impurities and other harmful ingredients. Maybe experiment with a higher quality CBD product – if problems persist, consult with a doctor. 

Can CBD capsules cause constipation?

There is no compelling evidence that suggests CBD capsules cause constipation, although these cannot be ruled out in people who have long-standing digestive issues. It’s noted that constipation symptoms often re-emerge after a period of time on a constipation treatment.

Some are taking CBD to relieve constipation problems, with the muscle relaxant effect seemingly helping to make bowel movements less painful. But given what we know about constipation remedies, it’s possible CBD could stop working over time. But this wouldn’t necessarily imply that CBD is causing constipation, just that it’s no longer effective.

Can CBD capsules be taken with other medication?

The quick answer: it depends entirely on which medication. Now for the longer answer! 

CBD is well-tolerated by the body, with studies showing the compound has a very low toxicity profile, even in high dosages. However, CBD does affect the metabolization of some drugs – specifically those that are metabolized by enzymes in the cytochrome P450 (CYP450) system. 

Metabolization is the body’s process of removing a drug from the body. By blocking CYP450 enzyme activity, CBD interferes with drug metabolization. This means that certain drugs stay active and more concentrated in the body for longer. Drugs metabolized by CYP450 enzymes include antihistamines, antidepressants, benzodiazepines and beta blockers.

It may still be possible to take CBD alongside these medications, but it’s highly likely that the dose of your medication will need to be changed. This is not something you should attempt to do by yourself. If you want to take CBD with your medication, always consult with your doctor about the best way to proceed. 

What is better: CBD capsules vs oil

Everyone has their favorite CBD products, and any calls on which are “best” is mostly subjective. But let’s quickly run through the key differences between capsules and tincture oils. 

Tincture oils are more efficient, with sublingual absorption providing a fast track for CBD into the bloodstream. Tinctures are effective in just a few minutes, whereas capsules can take up to an hour. However, with tinctures, getting a precise dose is more difficult, even though bottles come with a dropper. Capsules are also easier and stealthier to dose with when out and about. 

CBD capsules are a flavorless way of consuming CBD, while tincture oils can be both. Tincture products infused with full-spectrum hemp extracts have a potent, earthy flavor, although it’s possible to find unflavored oils, too. 

CBD capsules vs e-liquid

E-liquids deliver CBD’s benefits even more speedily than tincture oils, as the compounds are inhaled and absorbed through tissues in the lungs. It’s worth mentioning that vape juices and e-liquids also work under the tongue, as if they were tincture oils.

Capsules are definitely healthier than e-liquids, as vaping isn’t exactly healthy – although it’s much less dangerous than smoking. In addition, CBD capsules are more discreet and deliver accurate doses, unlike e-liquids which generate plenty of vapor and have no precise dosage mechanism (except for some disposable vape pens). 

Should you take CBD capsules on an empty stomach?

There is a lot of debate about whether you should take CBD products on an empty or full stomach. For bioavailability purposes, taking with food helps to get more from your capsules – although a lot depends on which foods you’re eating.

The first-pass effect that all orally-consumed drugs must go through reduces CBD’s bioavailability, and the percentage of the substance that is activated in the body. However, some useful fatty acids called medium and long-chain triglycerides help with bypassing the first-pass metabolism. These compounds are found in coconut oil, butter, cream, eggs, fish, meat and more. 

Combining CBD oil capsules will bring big benefits. Indeed, some CBD manufacturers are starting to make products with MCT oil, for this very effect! 

Are CBD capsules vegan-friendly?

Some are, some aren’t. CBD capsules made with gelatin are not vegan-friendly. But as this varies from product to product, always check the ingredients list and contact the manufacturer if unsure. ECODrops CBD capsules – which are available at CBDVapeJuice.net – are definitely vegan-friendly! 

CBD capsules and drug tests 

It’s very unlikely that any of the CBD oil capsules for sale on our store will cause any drug test problems. And there’s absolutely no chance that you’ll fail a test from taking CBD-isolate capsules, as they don’t have any THC whatsoever. When testing for cannabis, the only substance being looked for is THC, as it’s the only compound in the plant known to have psychoactive effects. 

Since federal law permits up to 0.3% THC in hemp product, there is a very slim possibility that you’ll encounter problems with full-spectrum CBD capsules. But since there is technically a chance, it’s best to be aware so that you don’t have any nasty surprises. Even then, you would have to take a lot of full-spectrum CBD for your THC blood levels to rise above any test thresholds. 

If you are subjected to random drug tests at work, and staying THC-free is a priority, we recommend buying CBD capsules with isolate extracts. Our CBD Genesis capsule products have no THC, as confirmed by Colorado Chromatography analysis.

The Best CBD Gummies Review of 2020

Gummies are a quirky, tasty and fun way for anybody to get their dose of cannabidiol (CBD). As an edible product, CBD gummies effects are sustained, and this longevity is perfect for combating chronic symptoms. Furthermore, gummies are an easy way to take CBD discreetly, which makes them ideal for eating just about anywhere.

We have an exciting range of gummies available at CBDVapeJuice.net, which we’ll review extensively in this detailed guide. This post will also focus on the many potential benefits offered by CBD in edible form, and how to maximize these therapeutic effects. We will also clear up any uncertainties and questions you may have about CBD products. 

We’ve designed this guide so that it’s accessible to everyone who’s interested in CBD – whether you’re a long-time user or just getting your feet wet. No matter your experience, we’re confident you’ll learn something in this easy-to-digest post! 

A quick overview of CBD 

Still not sure what CBD is, or confused about the sudden rise of these products in recent times? The first thing to know is that CBD products are created from industrial hemp, a cannabis sativa plant legalized in the 2010s by the US federal government. Hemp products are not like normal cannabis, as they have very low concentrations of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the plant’s psychoactive component. By law, no industrial hemp product can have more than 0.3% THC. 

CBD doesn’t have any intoxicating or addictive properties, nor are there any restrictions on how much CBD is allowed in an industrial hemp product. The therapeutic compound is a cannabinoid, and produces novel therapeutic effects on the body, primarily by acting upon the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). So far, clinical research on CBD has found the substance effective for epileptic seizures. But a lack of scientific progress in past decades due to prohibition means much more research is necessary.

From user trends of hemp-based CBD products such as gummies, we can deduce that CBD has a number of likely health benefits. These include chronic pain relief, reduced inflammation and immune system volatility, decreased anxiety and improved mood. Taking CBD may also regulate activity in the ECS. 

The body has multiple systems, and for us to enjoy a state of good overall health, it’s essential that these systems remain well-balanced. This is known as homeostasis. Regulation in the ECS may be even more important, as the system deals with both our physical and psychological health. 

Best-selling CBD gummies at CBDVapeJuice.net 

CBD gummies are an ever-popular edible at CBDVapeJuice.net. We’re constantly looking at the market’s leading brands and exciting up-and-comers, with a laser focus on bringing you the best CBD gummies. Third-party, independent lab testing is an essential requirement for all products stocked at CBDVapeJuice.net. This provides a much-needed layer of quality to products that are not currently regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

CBD Genesis Gummies

Our own-brand CBD Genesis gummies are pure CBD, infused with a CBD-isolate extract that doesn’t contain any THC. Therefore, these organic gummies are perfect if you need a CBD product that’s safe for drug test, and if you want CBD treats that have the same sumptuous taste as candies from your favorite brands. 

The CBD Genesis gummy range includes a 500mg tub, packed with 20 gummies (25mg each). A 25mg dose is not overwhelming, and a good entry point for first-time CBD users who want to sample the relaxation without feeling too sedated. For more experienced users, our 1000mg tubs of regular or sour gummy worms (50mg each) are a standout choice. The stronger CBD dose helps alleviate more intense pain symptoms, anxiety and stress. 

Heady Harvest CBD Gummies

A CBDVapeJuice.net favorite, Heady Harvest makes a wide range of CBD gummies, with a variety of strengths which cater to all CBD users. The CBD-isolate, THC-free nature of these products makes them drug-test proof, and Heady Harvest uses an organic industrial hemp extract to make these gummies. All Heady Harvest products come with 20 gummies, with doses of 10, 25 and 50mg. Choose between regular gummies and sour gummies! 

Heady Harvest CBD gummies are also naturally stronger than many other CBD gummies on the market, because of one crucial ingredient: fractionated coconut oil. Rich in fatty medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), coconut oil enhances the metabolization of CBD into the bloodstream. 

What does this mean in simple terms? Whenever you take CBD, only a certain percentage of it ever becomes active in the bloodstream. This percentage is known as the bioavailability. By increasing the bioavailability, any dose of CBD becomes stronger than it would be otherwise! MCTs are a great way of getting more potent CBD gummies effects, without needing to take more!

jolly green oil gummiesJolly Green Oil Gummies Party Pack

Jolly Green Oil are certainly bringing the value with their 1000mg Party Pack. This low-cost product doesn’t come at the expense of quality, with JGO products passing independent lab tests with flying colors. Each Party Pack contains 20 organic gummies, each infused with 50mg of CBD-isolate. 

JGO Party Pack gummies are pretty potent, and if you think 50mg may be a little strong, don’t hesitate to split each serving in half. The manufacturing process ensures the CBD extract is spread out evenly in the gummy. However, CBD lovers who appreciate the stronger effects may even prefer a 100mg double dose. Strong servings are very relaxing, especially physically! 

The JGO Party Pack is great for enjoying alone or with friends. CBD has become more socially acceptable as awareness and understanding about it has improved. As a natural and non-intoxicating aid for anxiety, CBD gummies can act as an effective social lubricant, reducing inhibitions without leaving you feeling embarrassed the next morning! 

Diamond CBD Gummies

Diamond CBD uses a special formula in its CBD gummies, in a bid to make them more potent than their competitors’. Each pack has a total of 75mg CBD-isolate, divided up into 14 gummies. In comparison to other gummies, Diamond CBD’s treats are medium strength, and appropriate for all occasions. 

Diamond makes multiple infused gummies, such as Watermelon Slices, Sour Shakes, Gummy Worms, Ocean Gummies and Rainbow Bites, in addition to classic Gummy Bears. A low-to-medium CBD dose is great for stimulating and improving alertness, which in turn is beneficial for focus and concentration. Meanwhile, a few of these gummies are great for drifting off to sleep when night time comes! 

How do CBD gummies work? 

CBD gummies, like all edible products, are renowned for working a little bit differently to hemp flower, vape juices and tincture oils. The slower release of CBD into the bloodstream is off-putting if you desire instant relief, which is indeed necessary for combatting certain health issues. However, if time isn’t of the essence, and you prefer a cost-effective product that provides lasting effects, gummies – and indeed all edibles stand out from the crowd. 

CBD gummies take much longer to kick in due to the oral route of administration, and the passage of CBD molecules through the first-pass metabolism. CBD travels through the liver before ultimately being absorbed into the bloodstream. The first-pass effect has been criticized for drastically reducing CBD’s bioavailability, although this can be compensated for by MCTs. Moreover, the effects of a CBD dosage differ depending on route of administration. An orally-taken 10mg dose may have a different effect than an inhaled 10mg dose. This even applies for seasoned CBD users when they try a new route of administration.

The healthiness of oral consumption is another key benefit of CBD gummies. Unlike smoking and vaping, which carry varying health risks, eating gummies and edibles doesn’t come with negative health effects. This makes CBD gummies more appealing to vulnerable populations, and anybody who isn’t prepared to compromise their health even slightly for faster CBD delivery.

What benefits do gummies have to offer?

In the CBD overview section, we touched a little on the potential benefits of CBD gummies. We’re going to dive deeper into the science in this section. Please bear in mind that this content should be taken as purely informational and educational, and an insight on CBD research. 

We are NOT making any medical claims about CBD, and you should always consult with a doctor if planning on taking CBD for self-medicating purposes. All products sold at CBDVapeJuice.net are supplements, and not marketed as medication. 

Now that’s out of the way, let’s look at what leading scientists have been learning about CBD over the past few years. And most importantly of all, we’ll explore how these findings relate specifically to CBD gummies.  

CBD gummies for sleep

Struggling to sleep at night? Poor sleep quality has both short and long-term adverse health effects. We all know that a bad night’s sleep causes fatigue, and reduced mental and physical performance the next day. But the long-term effects are even more devastating. 

Sleep – and notably deep sleep – is the time when the body and brain has a chance to heal and restore. In deep sleep, the brain flushes out destructive toxins and plaques that increase the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Failure to get consistent deep sleep reduces the brain’s ability to carry out this essential, protective process.

The good news is that CBD products may help. And even better, they are possibly preferable to existing pharmaceutical sleep medications, which are linked to nausea, chest pains and breathing issues. So, how does CBD work, and what makes gummies such an attractive prospect?

Some evidence suggests that CBD promotes regulation in the body’s circadian rhythm, which may be influenced by the ECS. The circadian rhythm, or sleep-wake cycle, releases and suppresses various hormones at different points in the day so that we feel sleepy and awake. Furthermore, large doses of CBD have a generally sedating effect, both physically and mentally. The body buzz and all-body relaxation is conducive to a good night’s sleep. 

As CBD gummies take some time to work, dosing up about an hour before bedtime is the best way to ensure the effects peak at the ideal time. And because CBD gummies can last up to eight hours, they’re possibly helpful for conditions that cause sleep disturbances, such as sleep apnea. If you wake up in the night due to physical pain, lasting CBD gummies effects also come to the fore here. 

CBD gummies for pain

Pain is hard to define. It’s not classified as a medical condition on its own, but as a symptom of other illnesses. Common types of pain include acute, chronic and inflammatory, all of which present unique challenges to researchers, doctors and patients. Medical cannabis has long been advocated as an alternative pain remedy, and a safer alternative to addictive opioids. But is there compelling evidence that CBD, as an individual treatment, works as a painkiller?

Not from the existing research, although data on users of hemp-derived CBD products, like gummies, indicate that the cannabinoid may help. Pain perception seems to be regulated by several receptors and systems, including the CB1 receptors in the ECS. CBD blocks CB1 receptor activity, but making more of the endocannabinoid anandamide available may have an analgesic effect. The compound is also a TRPV-1 (vanilloid) receptor agonist – this action could also have therapeutic value against pain. 

CBD gummies likely work best for chronic and inflammatory pain, rather than acute pain. Acute symptoms are intense and arise suddenly, hence why the slow response of CBD gummies isn’t so well-suited. However, chronic symptoms which are ever-present and barely ever subside can be managed more effectively with gummies and edibles than other CBD products. Inflammatory pain and autoimmune disease often come with chronic symptoms. The potent and novel anti-inflammatory effects of CBD and cannabinoids generally are seemingly may be very useful for this kind of pain.

CBD gummies for anxiety

Anxiety is a mental disorder affecting increasing numbers of the population, with 40 million American adults suffering according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. That only 36.9% of people are getting treatment for their anxiety is perhaps an even more concerning figure. SSRI pharmaceutical drugs are available for anxiety, but CBD arguably has much greater potential. 

Research shows that CBD can assist with social anxiety and public speaking, with high dosages having the most significant effect. Experts are still learning about the precise causes of anxiety, and how CBD may help, but have zoned in on some key areas. CBD is a positive allosteric modulator of GABA-A receptors. Increasing GABA activity in the brain is known to have a regulatory effect on anxiety. CBD is also a moderate agonist of the serotonin 1A receptor, which is associated with anxiety. 

Whether CBD gummies are the best option for anxiety depends on the type of anxiety you suffer with. For acute anxiety, edibles may not work fast enough to preserve a high quality of life. However, for more persistent symptoms, CBD relief may take the edge off your anxiety, so you aren’t constantly fretting throughout the day. Indeed, a famous 2011 study showing CBD’s beneficial effects for social anxiety used CBD capsules, which work in the same way as gummies. 

CBD gummies for focus and concentration 

We often underestimate the benefits that CBD can have for your focus and concentration. That’s probably because we mostly get caught up in how it helps with relaxation. But CBD, like many compounds, is a biphasic substance, meaning its effects are quite different depending on the dosage. And a small dose is actually associated with stimulation, increased alertness and cognitive benefits.

In this sense, CBD has much in common with brain-boosting nootropics, newly-popular supplements for people looking to get mentally ahead. But where some of these compounds may be risky, we know that pure CBD has a very low potential for harm. Regular small supplements can have lots of positive effects, including increasing hippocampal volume. The hippocampus is the part of our brain that stores short and long-term memories. 

Maybe you want better concentration levels in the workplace, so you don’t get distracted when carrying out long and monotonous tasks. Or perhaps you require more intense focus over long periods to help with studying. CBD gummies are intriguing propositions for both. And, of course, as a really discreet CBD product, you can take them just about anywhere without drawing attention to yourself! 

CBD gummies for your endocannabinoid system 

Many of us take supplements on a daily basis to improve our health. Omega-3 capsules, probiotics and multivitamins are among the most popular. However, CBD is quickly joining them, with a recent study showing that up to two-fifths of CBD users take products for general health benefits. 

Hemp-based CBD products are unique to all other supplements, in that they help our ECS. This system has long been neglected by health experts, although through no fault of their own. Remember that fCannabinoid research truly is a new field of science, and that brings lots of exciting possibilities. 

A few CBD supplemental benefits are as follows: immune system regulation, reduced pain perception, improved mood, lower stress and anxiety levels, better bone and reproductive health, improved cognition and regulated appetite. CBD helps the ECS work as it should by making sure endocannabinoids are present in the right levels. These are the body’s naturally-produced cannabinoids, which bind with cannabinoid receptors. 

From a supplemental perspective, all CBD products are great for the ECS. But prolonged CBD gummies effects promote ECS regulation around the clock!

What is the most suitable CBD gummies dosage?

Knowing what CBD dosage you need takes some to work out, whatever product you’re using. But it’s arguably even harder with edibles, since you end up waiting an hour or more before getting the full effects. Many CBD brands offer advice on how much to take, and how often. But when all is said and done, CBD affects us all differently, and it’s a case of working it out for yourself. With this in mind, “How do I find out the most suitable CBD gummies dosage for me?” is perhaps a better question! 

Your ideal dose depends on why you’re taking CBD. For better focus, a small dose should suffice. For strong pain relief and improved sleep, you’ll need a much higher dose. New CBD gummies users should proceed with caution. With edibles, you can always top your dose if the first isn’t strong enough. But you can’t lower it once you’ve taken it! 

Therefore, starting small and building up gradually is the best way to go. Don’t worry if you do take too much – you’ll just feel more relaxed and sleepy than intended! If you’re lucky, you may find perfection from your first dose. Otherwise, it may take a few CBD gummy sessions before you’ve found the perfect amount. Writing down how you feel after different dosages can help make this process easier! 

CBD gummies vs oil

CBD gummies and tincture oils are both in high demand with CBDVapeJuice.net customers. Both products have pros and cons, depending on why you’re taking CBD. But that’s the beauty of CBD – there are lots of products to choose from, all with their own advantages. 

The main difference between gummies and oil is speed of delivery. As we know, gummies produce gradual effects, that typically don’t show up for at least 30 minutes. In contrast, CBD oil responds fairly quickly when taken via sublingual absorption. Sublingual glands under the tongue help fast-track CBD into the bloodstream, bypassing the first-pass effect. Indeed, sublingual absorption is second only to inhalation as far as onset of effects go. 

CBD gummies are more discreet than tinctures, as you can mix them in with other candies. And you’ll always know exactly how much you’re taking – as brands always specify the dosage in each gummy. With tincture oils, you can get very close to a precise serving size with the dropper, but getting it accurate to the milligram is very difficult. 

Interestingly, CBD tinctures can deliver edible-like effects if swallowed directly, or combined with food and drink. Some people like adding CBD oil into their water or coffee, or even soup! Tinctures also work topically, having a therapeutic effect when applied to the skin.  

CBD gummies vs pills

CBD gummies and pills (or capsules) have plenty in common. With both, the CBD goes through the first-pass metabolism, resulting in gradual release and prolonged effects. Of course, gummies taste better than pills and capsules, which some find hard to swallow (especially the bigger capsules). 

However, CBD capsules sometimes also contain other natural extracts, which isn’t possible with gummies. Both products have exact CBD doses so you always know how much you’re taking. This makes on-the-go use easy with both gummies and capsules. There’s not a lot to separate CBD gummies with capsules, so it mostly comes down to personal preference! 

Are CBD gummies weed?

Not in the traditional sense, although technically CBD gummies are derived from cannabis plants. We think of “weed” as the psychoactive plant that gets you “high”, inducing euphoric effects while increasing appetite and causing short-term memory impairment. CBD gummies certainly do not produce these effects. In its nature, CBD is non-psychoactive and possibly even anti-psychoactive. Studies suggest CBD has a neutralizing effect on THC, and its presence in cannabis strains reduces the overall high.

Legally, hemp-derived CBD gummies with less than 0.3% are not classified as weed. Hemp products with less than 0.3% come under the industrial hemp banner, according to federal government regulations. This means you can travel from state to state with CBD gummies without breaking the law!

How do CBD gummies make you feel?

CBD gummies have a variety of effects, depending on the dosage taken and the type of hemp extract used. As a general rule, low dosages have stimulating properties, while higher dosages are soothing. An in-between dose provides a mixture of these effects. However, this framework is more applicable to CBD-isolate gummies than full-spectrum gummies.

Full-spectrum CBD gummies contain a whole-plant hemp extract, so have terpenes as well as cannabinoids. Each hemp strain generates a unique terpene profile, which holds considerable influence over the effects. 

Some terpene profiles are both cerebrally and physically energizing – these strains are known as sativas. Other terpene profiles are much more sedative and classed as indicas. These relaxing effects come out even more so with a high CBD dose. There are also hybrid strains, comprised of a blend of sativa and indica terpenes. CBD gummies made with these extracts should be both energizing and calming in equal measures. 

Will CBD gummies help with depression?

CBD gummies may help with depression and low mood, although the science is far from concrete. Researchers are still unclear as to the underlying causes of depression. And there is perhaps more uncertainty now than ever. For decades, experts thought depression was solely due to serotonin imbalance. However, while SSRI drugs – which increase serotonin levels – are effective for some patients, not everybody benefits from them. This indicates that there are other factors triggering depression, and long-term major depressive disorder in particular. 

Neuroinflammation (brain inflammation) is getting more attention than ever as a cause of depression. The theory is that adverse structural changes to key brain regions (i.e. the hippocampus, the prefrontal cortex) has lasting negative effects on brain function. Early animal research on CBD suggests the cannabinoid helps, and that it has fast-acting benefits. Studies point towards CBD stimulating neurogenesis and healing damaged circuitry. A 2018 animal study looking at CBD’s effect on the prefrontal cortex found that the compound sparked a rise in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF is an essential protein for neurogenesis.

As we know, people are already self-medicating with legal CBD products. Surveys regularly list depression as a top reason for taking CBD. It’s possible that this is purely down to a strong placebo effect (even more so with the recent hype around CBD), but the few studies we have hints at CBD having a real effect. Bigger, placebo-controlled studies on humans is the logical next phase for research on CBD’s benefits for depression. With more than 16 million American adults suffering from depression according to ADAA statistics, these studies cannot come soon enough.

Are CBD gummies addictive?

No, CBD gummies are not addictive. How do we know this? Because research has shown that CBD does not have any addictive components. In contrast, there are some studies suggesting that CBD reduces addictive tendencies by modulating receptors in the opioid system. Cannabis gummies with THC may have addictive effects, and there is evidence that 9% of people who ever experiment with cannabis will become dependent. However, hemp-based CBD products only ever have minimal concentrations of THC, and the negative effects of this compound are easily suppressed by the CBD.

CBD gummies are not physically addictive, and there is nothing to support them being mentally addictive either. Sure, if you take CBD gummies every day for many months and then stop you’ll probably miss them. But you won’t get hooked, or experience any cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

Are there any CBD gummies for kids?

No. Only adults should use CBD products. While CBD gummies are effectively just candies, the CBD infusion makes a big difference. This isn’t to say that CBD is necessarily dangerous for children – the reality may be quite the opposite. The biggest media stories about CBD in the 2010s have involved tincture oils being used to treat rare epilepsies in kids who don’t respond positively to traditional medication. However, in this scenario, CBD is a prescribed medication, where the benefits outweigh the costs.

The World Health Organization has spoken favorably about CBD in its pure forms, so there are probably very few risks for children. However, there isn’t enough evidence to say this for definite, and naturally, it makes sense to be safe than sorry! There are lots of legal substances that are perfectly okay for adults to take, but not children. CBD is just another to add to the list! Moreover, if you keep CBD products at home (whether it’s gummies or anything else) ensure they are kept well out of reach of children. It’s arguably even more important with gummies, which kids could easily confuse for normal candies.

Green Roads CBD: Our Detailed 2019 Brand Review

Green Roads

CBD:

Our Detailed 2019

Brand Review

Nothing has transformed the wellness industry more in the past few years than hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) products. With their potential finally unlocked after decades of prohibitions, businesses from all over the country are selling CBD-infused oils, gummies, capsules, concentrates, vape juices and just about anything that you could think of putting CBD into!

Some of these brands offer better quality than others. Few go as far as Green Roads CBD in ensuring its products are pure, safe and effective. That’s why we’re delighted to feature their range at CBDVapeJuice.net. This guide will take you through the company’s history and manufacturing processes, their most popular products and some common queries. And don’t miss our Green Roads coupon code for 10% off!

Who is Green Roads CBD?

This is a well-known and award-winning CBD brand that has one primary goal: to enhance your overall health. Their dedicated team is Florida-based, and has steadily built up an impressive reputation in the hemp-derived CBD industry. But it’s perhaps no surprise given the laser focus Green Roads has on quality. All hemp extracts are pharmacist-formulated, and consist of powerful ingredients which make up a refined proprietary formula.

This organization is transparent, with multi-stage independent lab testing for all their products. You can check the test results for every single product by scanning the QR code on the label. This provides you with extra assurance that your product meets the company’s very high standards.

The brand has won multiple awards over the years for both product quality and the initiative and leadership they have shown in the CBD market. Hemp-based CBD is still growing and in its formative years. We’re all indebted to the companies that have pushed forward with professionalization and upping the bar. Improvements mean we all get better and more effective CBD products, at a lower price.

The manufacturing process

It’s great that Green Roads has laid out its manufacturing process step-by-step for us all to see. This alone shows the company is open about the techniques they use, and are proud to share them with us.

All hemp used is sourced from American farms, and is cultivated with the “highest standards and practices.” It would be nice if the description went into a little more detail here, but it’s a solid start. They only get extracts from facilities using the most advanced facilities in the country. This is key to guaranteeing immaculate CBD oils and isolate products that are capable of winning awards.

Before adding raw materials to products, the company does its own private testing. They look for the presence of any microbes, pesticides and bacteria. Only the finest ingredients make the cut for their special formulations. The brand uses said formula for its flagship Green Roads CBD Oil, and also for calming edibles and soothing CBD topicals.

Before going on sale, all products are sent to third-party labs for certification. As a glance at any provided lab report shows, they only work with the most-respected laboratories that boast impeccable testing standards. They take the philosophy that the lab certification is only worth as much as the company it comes from!

Green Roads CBD Review

There’s no denying that the products in this review are among the best quality on the market. But remember that all legal, hemp-based CBD is marketed only as a dietary supplement, whether it’s pharmacist-formulated or not. CBD products are not medicines. For a drug to become a medicine, it must be clinically trialled and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is yet to happen for Green Roads’ products.

However, we all know that millions of people are finding CBD therapeutic – you may already be one of them! The many possible health benefits come largely from CBD’s influence on the endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBD’s effects range from lowering anxiety, to easing inflammation, to even facilitating neurogenesis (brain growth) and cognitive improvements.

In regulating the ECS, CBD may also help manage fibromyalgia, migraines and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A team of cannabinoid researchers studying the ECS have traced all three conditions back to dysregulation in this system. Arguably no area of CBD and cannabinoid research needs more attention than this one.

Green Roads CBD products could potentially help with any of these ailments. And since CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addictive and safe in large doses, it’s got to be worth a try! We’re excited to tell you about these six products from the brand’s collection.

CBD Tincture Oil

Green Roads CBD Oil is an award-winning sublingual, non-GMO product that contains a potent, proprietary blend and a nice mixture of flavors. The extract used is designed for quick absorption and fast relief, and boasts a higher bioavailability than standard CBD oils. This product is available in seven potencies: 100mg, 250mg, 350mg, 550mg, 1000mg, 1500mg and 3500mg.

Green Roads uses a broad-spectrum CBD extract, combined with hemp seed oil for all-encompassing hemp relief. Beyond the cannabinoids, hemp is teeming with flavonoids, terpenes, amino acids and omega-3, 6 and 9. Omega fatty acids are especially beneficial, since they help create endocannabinoids, natural compounds vital for smooth ECS functioning. Vegetable glycerin is also present as a carrier oil, and has a sweetening effect.

Since they aren’t in the business of hemp flower or e-liquids, these oils are the fastest-acting CBD products in their range. Rapid absorption via sublingual mucous membranes in the mouth is an ideal way of taking CBD if you have symptoms that occur abruptly and worsen quickly. Swallowing tincture oils directly delivers extended effects, as does adding it to food and beverages.

CBD Tincture Daily Dose

This is the perfect product for getting your daily dose of CBD in tincture form. The same broad-spectrum hemp extract with hemp seed oil is present in the Green Roads Daily Dose, which is great for stronger effects and faster relief. We have the 350mg, 1000mg and 1500mg formulas in stock, which provide 23mg, 33mg and 50mg of CBD respectively.

The Daily Dose simplifies taking tinctures, and ensures your dosage is always accurate. The pre-filled dropper can also be enjoyed anytime, anyplace, without preparation. Simply unwrap, and squeeze the oil under your tongue. Because of the extra convenience, the Daily Dose is somewhat more expensive than regular tinctures. So decide whether you want a low price or ease-of-use when purchasing!

CBD Gummies

Gummies are a delicious favorite, and you won’t find a more enjoyable way of benefitting from CBD. Green Roads has an extensive offering, such as Gummy Bears, Relief Toads, Fruit Bites, Froggies and Sleepy Z’s. But beyond the flavor, edibles have unique effects that appeal to many CBD users.

You might take edibles if you want the effects to last you all day or all night. Perhaps you have a long day at work and need to feel focussed, or be free from stress and anxiety. Maybe you haven’t been sleeping properly, or are waking up in the night due to chronic pain. With edibles lasting six to eight hours and sometimes even longer, there’s no risk of the effects wearing off when you want them most.

However, as gummies and edibles don’t work straight away, you need to be careful with the dosage. Metabolism speed plays a part, but the wait is mainly because the CBD must pass through the digestive tract, stomach and liver before becoming active in the bloodstream.

Resist the urge to take a second dose if not feeling the effects after an hour or so. If you still want more relief after three hours, then it’s okay to redose. A double dose of CBD is not dangerous, but it’s a careless and expensive way of taking edibles, and may leave you feeling drowsier than expected.

CBD topicals

Green Roads has a few different topicals, all designed to work quickly and have a soothing effect. Creams and roll-ons are available in different strengths, so you can holm in on the best level of relief. If you’re looking for something extra, the heat therapy offered by the Heat Relief roll-on is worth checking out.

The regular CBD relief cream contains either 150mg or 300mg of broad-spectrum CBD extract, packed into a 1oz tube. This topical is paraben-free, and boosted with ice-cool menthol, and therapeutic chamomile and lavender oil.

Meanwhile, the ‘Muscle & Joint Heat Relief’ comes with either 250mg or 500mg of broad-spectrum extract, and is complemented with cayenne extract, rosemary oil and avocado oil. Green Roads employ ‘advanced heating technology’ to maximize effects.

Free the Leaf CBD Cartridges

These CBD cartridges mark Green Roads CBD’s first foray into vaping. Their ‘Free the Leaf’ line uses refreshing imagery, and their products are full of flavor. We stock cartridges with 250mg and 500mg of that famous pharmacist-formulated, broad-spectrum extract, in three flavors: Blueberry, Mango and Strawberry Lemonade. The CBD extract and natural terpenes are blended with beneficial MCT oil.

These cartridges allow you to get premium, potent CBD vapor on-demand, anywhere you are. Green Roads use a ceramic material for the cartridge, to promote pure and excellent-tasting vapor. What’s more, these 510-threaded cartridges work with just about every vape battery.

CBD for Pets

We’ve spent so much time talking about how you can benefit from CBD, that we almost forgot about your pet! Thankfully, Green Roads has it covered with an impressive new range of CBD drops that are just right for your furry friends.

You can get their CBD oil for dogs and cats. They have oils for small, medium and large dogs with increasing CBD quantities (60mg, 210mg and 600mg). The oil for cats has the same amount of CBD (60mg) as recommended for small dogs.

All products have a natural hemp-derived extract, mixed with MCT oil and an overall formula targeted for pets. CBD may help with pain, inflammation, anxiety, stress and low energy. Green Roads advises applying these products directly in your pet’s mouth. But like any tinctures, you can also add oil to their food or drink.

Can Green Roads CBD Oil

be vaped?

No. Green Roads CBD Oil is purely a tincture oil, and should not be used for vaporizing. CBD tinctures may contain ingredients not suitable for vaping, and these products could also damage your vape. If you really want a product to vaporize, check out Free The Leaf Cartridges and E-Liquids, which have the brand’s unique, lab-tested formula.

Does Green Roads CBD Oil

contain THC?

No. The broad-spectrum tincture oils from this brand are formulated to not contain any intoxicating THC. This goes further than the legal requirement that hemp products must have less than 0.3% THC. With no THC, the Green Roads CBD Oil is perfectly safe to consume in any quantity, and there’s no risk that you’ll pop a drugs test. The same THC-free status applies to any of the products made with their proprietary formula.

Creams and roll-ons are available in different strengths, so you can holm in on the best level of relief. If you’re looking for something extra, the heat therapy offered by the Heat Relief roll-on is worth checking out.

The regular CBD relief cream contains either 150mg or 300mg of broad-spectrum CBD extract, packed into a 1oz tube. This topical is paraben-free, and boosted with ice-cool menthol, and therapeutic chamomile and lavender oil.

Meanwhile, the ‘Muscle & Joint Heat Relief’ comes with either 250mg or 500mg of broad-spectrum extract, and is complemented with cayenne extract, rosemary oil and avocado oil. Green Roads employ ‘advanced heating technology’ to maximize effects.

Free the Leaf CBD Cartridges

These CBD cartridges mark Green Roads CBD’s first foray into vaping. Their ‘Free the Leaf’ line uses refreshing imagery, and their products are full of flavor. We stock cartridges with 250mg and 500mg of that famous pharmacist-formulated, broad-spectrum extract, in three flavors: Blueberry, Mango and Strawberry Lemonade. The CBD extract and natural terpenes are blended with beneficial MCT oil.

These cartridges allow you to get premium, potent CBD vapor on-demand, anywhere you are. Green Roads use a ceramic material for the cartridge, to promote pure and excellent-tasting vapor. What’s more, these 510-threaded cartridges work with just about every vape battery.

CBD for Pets

We’ve spent so much time talking about how you can benefit from CBD, that we almost forgot about your pet! Thankfully, Green Roads has it covered with an impressive new range of CBD drops that are just right for your furry friends.

You can get their CBD oil for dogs and cats. They have oils for small, medium and large dogs with increasing CBD quantities (60mg, 210mg and 600mg). The oil for cats has the same amount of CBD (60mg) as recommended for small dogs.

All products have a natural hemp-derived extract, mixed with MCT oil and an overall formula targeted for pets. CBD may help with pain, inflammation, anxiety, stress and low energy. Green Roads advises applying these products directly in your pet’s mouth. But like any tinctures, you can also add oil to their food or drink.

Can Green Roads CBD Oil

be vaped?

No. Green Roads CBD Oil is purely a tincture oil, and should not be used for vaporizing. CBD tinctures may contain ingredients not suitable for vaping, and these products could also damage your vape. If you really want a product to vaporize, check out Free The Leaf Cartridges and E-Liquids, which have the brand’s unique, lab-tested formula.

Does Green Roads CBD Oil

contain THC?

No. The broad-spectrum tincture oils from this brand are formulated to not contain any intoxicating THC. This goes further than the legal requirement that hemp products must have less than 0.3% THC. With no THC, the Green Roads CBD Oil is perfectly safe to consume in any quantity, and there’s no risk that you’ll pop a drugs test. The same THC-free status applies to any of the products made with their proprietary formula.

CBD Creams: Key facts about creams, salves and gels (2020 Review)

Cannabidiol (CBD) topical products are completely unique in the CBD industry. Whether it’s creams, massage gels, salves, ointments, lotions, balms, oils, or anything else that goes on the skin, topicals work totally differently to all other CBD products. 

Indeed, some people are surprised that CBD even works on the skin at all. But these products certainly aren’t gimmicks. There’s hard science behind therapeutic CBD topicals, and they are often effective in ways that other CBD products simply aren’t. 

If you’re new to CBD or CBD creams, then this mammoth guide is your perfect starting point. We’ll begin by exploring CBD as a compound and why it works on the skin, before looking at some of the best-selling CBD creams for sale at CBDVapeJuice.net. In the second half of this post, we’ll outline what these products may help with, and answer a list of frequently asked questions. Let’s begin! 

A brief introduction to CBD

Nowadays, it seems you can get CBD in just about everything. The compound has enjoyed an astonishing ascendancy from a virtual unknown to a top player in the health and wellness scene. And it’s all happened since the legalization of hemp-based products in the United States in 2014.

That’s right, CBD comes from hemp, a largely non-intoxicating strain of cannabis sativa. CBD is also present in regular cannabis strains, although it’s much more prominent in hemp. Even more importantly from a legal perspective, hemp has very low levels of psychoactive delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD creams and all other hemp-derived products are only legal if they have less than 0.3% THC. Hence why hemp growers are now cultivating strains with sky high levels of CBD, and just traces of THC. 

Since the 1960s, researchers have conducted studies on CBD, with the number of these snowballing in recent times. Groundbreaking findings about cannabinoids (of which CBD is one), the endocannabinoid system (ECS) where CBD works, and the overall implications of these compounds and the ECS for our health are transforming the world of medical science. 

Dr Raphael Mechoulam, who first isolated CBD and THC, has described cannabinoids as a “pharmacological treasure trove.” With legal restrictions surrounding cannabis and hemp loosening, scientists are finally able to start looting the chest! 

How do CBD creams work?

The ECS holds the key to most – if not all – of CBD’s effects. Made up of endocannabinoids (naturally generated cannabinoid-like compounds) and cannabinoid receptors, the ECS is detectable pretty much throughout the entire body. Unsurprisingly, cannabinoid receptors are found in abundance in the skin.

As of December 2019, experts have identified two cannabinoid receptors. Thankfully, they’ve kept it simple, naming them ‘CB1’ and ‘CB2’. CB1 receptors primarily manage psychological variables, such as pain perception, mood and appetite. These receptors are expressed mostly in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) but are also present in the skin. In contrast, CB2 receptors are closely associated with immune system response and inflammation regulation. CB2 receptors are also well-expressed in the skin.

It’s also possible that other receptors, outside of the ECS, are activated by CBD creams. Research in this area is in its infancy, but one example is the vanilloid (TRPV-1) receptor, which regulates pain sensation and is found in the skin. CBD is a mild vanilloid receptor agonist.

Popular CBD creams at CBDVapeJuice.net

CBD brands have ample opportunities to get creative and innovative with CBD topicals. And thanks to the highly competitive nature of the market, we’re seeing lots of variety. Some creams have a CBD-isolate base, whereas others contain full-spectrum extracts. All kinds of essential oils with skin-soothing benefits (such as tea tree oil and lavender oil) are often included in premium topicals. These creams and lotions may be pricier, but bringing lots of proven therapeutic extracts together and combining them with CBD greatly enhances the effects. 

The CBDVapeJuice.net ‘Health and Beauty’ collection is growing all the time. We’re always on the look out for intriguing new products which meet our high standards. The following six topicals have a great reputation with our customers. 

cbd creamCBD Pain Cream by Genesis

Our very own CBD Genesis Pain Cream is a classic, lab-tested CBD topical. This all-organic product is available with either 250 or 500mg of hemp extract, and comes in a 2oz bottle. The small overall product size makes this one of the strongest CBD creams that we stock. Therefore, it’s great at delivering extra relief when you need it most. 

We have also infused essential oils and organic white willow (salix alba) bark into this cream. Salix alba is a fairly common ingredient in skin creams, and is an effective exfoliant and antifungal agent. White willow bark also helps with removing dead skin cells, and helps promote a fresh and vibrant overall appearance. 

hemp bombs cbd lotionHempBombs CBD Lotion

With the HempBombs CBD Lotion, you can literally freeze away your pain. This product capitalizes on cold therapy, with the menthol bringing a soothing effect to the skin when it’s applied. HempBombs uses 200mg of pure CBD hemp extract with no THC in this 4oz lotion. 

Tea tree oil is another key ingredient in the HempBombs lotion, which is lab-tested by a third-party. The naturally cooling effect, combined with the hemp extract and other beneficial extracts makes this a formidable topical product. It’s ideal for getting any of CBD’s benefits. However, because of the strong cooling sensation, you may want to keep this lotion away from the eyes and sensitive skin. 

cbd salveTopical CBD Salve by Hempmetics 

This is without question the strongest CBD cream available at CBDVapeJuice.net, with a mighty 1000mg of CBD extract infused into a 1oz jar. Hempmetics is the premium line of Jolly Green Oil, an established and trusted hemp-based CBD brand. Menthol crystals and a mixture of essential oils and minerals feature in this classy salve, along with soothing organic aloe juice.

The manufacturers suggest keeping this topical away from the eyes, nose and mouth, and washing hands after use. Applying to tight and weary muscles may have a deeply relaxing effect, while washing away any aches and pain. As this is a highly-concentrated topical, a small amount should suffice. The Hempmetics salve may be fantastic value, but there’s no upside to using more than you need. 

cbd lotionPinnacle CBD Lotion 

Pinnacle Hemp manufacture a selection of top-shelf full-spectrum CBD products. These body lotions are a star attraction in their selection. This non-GMO, third-party tested topical contains 200mg of CBD and has a delightful moisturizing effect, providing genuine nourishment to the skin. A light and creamy topical, the Pinnacle Hemp lotion is ideal for alleviating pain and enhancing skin quality.

For a beachy twist, try the coconut scented lotion, which has a pleasant yet not overbearing aroma. But if coconut isn’t your thing and you just want a regular, but effective CBD topical, the unscented version has you covered. The lab report from DB Labs shows these lotions have traces of cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG), two non-intoxicating cannabinoids that complement the CBD. Both compounds are renowned for having anti-inflammatory effects.

CBD SalveCBD Twist Tube Salve by Genesis

The Twist Tube Salve is another dependable topical from our very own CBD Genesis range. We pack a hefty 500mg of CBD into 2oz of salve, while keeping the THC content below 0.3%. The beauty of a twist tube salve is that it’s easily administered to all areas of the body. It’s also an efficient way to apply as a topical, as you’ll never use more than necessary. 

The CBD Genesis Salve is great for taking the edge off pain, and relaxing tight muscles. The anti-inflammatory effects may also help with skin complaints. In addition to the hemp extract, our salve also contains moisturizing coconut oil, antioxidant-rich ginger root and infection-fighting arnica. We’ve also included beeswax which adds extra anti-inflammatory value while nurturing the skin by encouraging cell reconstruction. 

Lots of thought has gone into making the best possible topical that embellishes CBD’s effects. Put simply, the CBD Genesis salve is a product that delivers more.

Body Lotion by Hempmetics 

We can’t finish our product reviews without mentioning another topical from the classy Hempmetics. This 8oz Hand and Body Lotion contains organic hemp seed oil, and a myriad of helpful ingredients. These include cooling organic aloe leaf juice, anti-inflammatory coconut oil, and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. 

The Hempmetics Hand and Body Lotion works well on dry skin, and can be used on all areas of the body. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are present in the hemp seed oil, offering anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects for the skin. This lotion is vegan-friendly, gluten-free and paraben-free, and made entirely in the United States.

Possible health benefits of CBD creams

There is lots of confusion surrounding the health benefits of CBD. If you’ve just had a passing interest in CBD up until now, the chances are you’ll have heard that it helps with just about everything! We’re certainly CBD enthusiasts, but we’re also big on facts, too. It’s still early days in CBD research, and until the big studies and clinical trials are conducted, very little can be said for definite. 

However, CBD creams are indeed wildly popular for all kinds of reasons, and we can’t ignore that either. In this section, we’ll look at the most common health problems that CBD topicals are touted as being effective for, and explore whether these benefits match up with the existing science. Please note that we are not making any medical claims about CBD in this article. All content is written for educational and informative purposes only. If you are in need of medical advice, please consult with a doctor or another medical expert.

CBD creams for back pain

CBD’s potential as a painkiller could be the compound’s most exciting prospective benefit. If it truly is effective for pain, CBD might emerge as a genuine challenger to opioid-based drugs, which are addictive, loaded with side effects and have a high risk of overdose.

For many users, CBD creams are more appealing than other products, since they produce localized relief. In addition to back pain, CBD creams may help with knee pain, neck pain, arm pain, and just about anywhere for that matter. The ability of topicals to get straight to the source is something that inhaled and orally-consumed products, with their all-body effects, just don’t have.

The best CBD creams for pain will have a rich concentration of CBD, and preferably menthol crystals for cooling. Those with inflammatory pain will appreciate a concoction of essential oils, too. A full-spectrum topical with high levels of secondary cannabinoids may boost the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects beyond what a CBD-isolate cream can offer.

CBD creams for arthritis pain

Not all arthritis is the same. There are several types of arthritis, although the ones we talk about most often are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The former causes joint cartilage and underlying bone breakdown. This leads to joint pain, stiffness and sometimes swelling. OA is the most common form of arthritis, affecting more than 230 million globally. 

RA is an autoimmune disorder that affects the joints, causing pain and swelling. These symptoms are often made worse by prolonged periods of inactivity. RA is a lot rarer than OA, but still affects around 25 million people worldwide. Like OA, RA has a destructive effect on joint cartilage and underlying bone. RA is also notorious for sapping energy levels.

While OA and RA are somewhat different, CBD creams for joint pain may make a difference for both. The goal of arthritis treatment is to reduce pain and inflammation – doctors often prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, CBD and many secondary cannabinoids are well-documented anti-inflammatories, and work to balance the immune system by regulating the ECS. 

As for other forms of pain, the localized effects of CBD creams are perfect for managing arthritis symptoms. Sufferers can simply lather up their affected areas whenever a flare-up occurs to cut symptoms down to size. In 2010, a small study featured in the scientific journal Pharmaceuticals (Basel) found that cannabinoids may help repair joint cartilage. 

Engineering tissue in body regions that have been devastated by the inflammatory effects of arthritis would be an exciting development. It would mean that CBD creams don’t just manage arthritis symptoms and stop conditions from worse, but that they actively help reverse the damage. This fascinating pocketing science is a great example of Mechoulam’s description of cannabinoids as a “pharmacological treasure trove.” 

CBD foot creams 

There’s nothing worse than cracked soles and dry feet. Our feet are more vulnerable to dryness than any other part of the body due to an absence of oil glands. Rather, the feet only have sweat glands to stay moisturized. Having dry feet is sometimes – if not always – a painful experience.

There are all sorts of remedies for dry feet, from epsom salts to oatmeal baths. Now we can throw CBD foot creams into the equation as well. Some companies make creams especially for the skin, although any CBD-infused topicals should have the intended effects. CBD creams get deeply into the skin of the feet, producing a much-needed hydrating and moisturizing effect.

Manage skin complaints with CBD topicals

Many skin disorders are notorious because researchers know so little about them. There is still debate about the exact causes of acne, never mind the best way to treat it. Hence, a lot of patients with acne, psoriasis, eczema and other skin complaints are stuck with treatments that have questionable effectiveness. 

The risk for these patients is turning to alternative remedies that may make the problem worse, as happened with Accutane for acne. This drug was meant to combat excessive sebum (oil) production in acne sufferers, but ended up causing excessively dry skin in some users, known as xeroderma.

The first goal of any treatment is to “do no harm,” and this applies especially when dealing with highly-sensitive skin. Encouragingly, CBD’s relative safety profile extends to the skin, and does not have any notable adverse effects. But it may be very helpful for acne and psoriasis.

Acne

For whatever reason, acne occurs due to increased sebum production from the sebaceous glands. This oil keeps the skin lubricated, hydrated and provides a protective layer against external threats. But too much sebum causes pores in the skin to become clogged, dirty and sometimes infected. However, rather than just drying the skin, research suggests that CBD has a modulating effect on the sebaceous glands, restoring sebum production to healthy levels. 

A 2014 paper in the Journal of Clinical Investigation described CBD as an anti-inflammatory and a sebsotatic compound. The study authors concluded that CBD is a “promising therapeutic agent” for acne vulgaris.

Psoriasis

After decades of discussion, it’s now mostly accepted that psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. This skin disorder affects up to 80 million people worldwide, and is associated with red, crusty and flaky skin. Psoriasis patches are most prominent on the knees, elbows, lower back and scalp, but can show up anywhere. As a chronic condition, psoriasis patients always live with the condition, but symptoms vary in severity over time. 

Psoriasis patches occur due to increased skin cell production. In healthy individuals, the skin creates new cells, pushes them to the surface and sheds them in a three-to-four week process. However, in psoriasis patients, this happens in just a week, causing an accumulation of skin cells as the surface which cannot be shed quickly enough. 

CBD’s promise for psoriasis comes from its likely benefits for inflammation and immune system functioning. Studies show that CBD reduces the expression of keratinocytes in the skin – production of these cells is greatly increased in psoriasis patients. Interestingly, cannabinoid receptors appear not to play a central role in stifling keratinocyte production. This suggests CBD and other cannabinoids act on the skin through not-yet-discovered mechanisms. 

CBD creams for carpal tunnel 

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) causes pain and tingling in the wrists due to suppression of the median nerve. Indeed, CTS is also described as median nerve compression. The tingling and numbness can take months to go away, and symptoms often make it difficult to grip things. Medical experts recommend wrist splints, painkillers, hand exercises and simply reducing the activities that are causing the CTS. But could CBD creams also work as well? 

There is very little literature looking specifically at CBD and CTS. However, since people use CBD creams for pain and inflammation, in theory, these topical products may have a therapeutic effect. That said, doctors have also questioned whether traditional painkillers for CTS. But there are no downsides to experimenting with CBD, so it’s certainly worth trying it for carpal tunnel. 

Combat infections with CBD creams 

Bacteria, microbes, fungi, viruses and parasites can all trigger skin infections, some of which are more dangerous than others. When discussing bacteria, antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” such as MRSA often come to mind. And it’s true that experts are in a race against time to find new classes of antibiotics that can take the fight to these mutated strains of bacteria. 

CBD and full-spectrum hemp may just be a very effective tool. A handful of studies over the past decade or so have looked at the antibacterial effects of CBD. These have deduced that CBD does have an antibiotic effect, but through an unknown mechanism. This indicates CBD works in ways we still don’t understand. But that it takes effect differently to traditional antibiotics has fuelled researchers with optimism about CBD’s future potential. We also know the cannabinoid has antifungal and antimicrobial properties for good measure. 

CBD creams for yeast infections

Vaginal yeast infections are fungal infections. Yes, we appreciate this is hardly the most pleasant topic to talk about – but it’s important! Yeast infections cause itchiness, irritation and discharge in the vagina and vulva, and more women than not are affected at some point in their lifetime. Vaginal yeast infections occur due to an overgrowth of yeast, which may be triggered by antibiotic use. 

As an antifungal substance, CBD topicals have medicinal potential for yeast infections. But there is no scientific evidence to support their use at this time. There’s nothing to say CBD doesn’t work, either. Researchers simply haven’t got around to this issue yet. But once again, as CBD is non-toxic, non-aggressive and overwhelmingly safe, there are only upsides in giving it a try.

CBD creams for muscle tension

Many of the best CBD creams for pain are marketed as relieving muscle aches and tensions. Sometimes, our muscles ache due to a strenuous period of exercise. However, muscle tension can also result due to prolonged inactivity, overuse and stress. Muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and head may even trigger headaches and migraines.

CBD is regularly touted as relaxing the muscles through its potent sedative effects. Muscle relaxers are not the same as painkillers, although muscle relaxers often reduce pain, too. The pain relief is a beneficial indirect effect from easing stiffness and tension in the muscles. Some studies have found that cannabigerol (CBG), a minor, non-intoxicating cannabinoid has a greater therapeutic effect on muscle spasms than other cannabinoids. Therefore, full-spectrum hemp creams may work better than topicals with CBD-isolate extracts. 

CBD creams for anti-aging effects

Ideally, we could all stay young forever – but reality doesn’t work like that! As we start to age, wrinkles, crow’s feet and deep lines appear, making us look old, even if we don’t feel it. Much of the aging process is beyond our control. Over time, collagen and elastin production decreases – these proteins are essential for keeping the skin tight. 

However, some aging is caused by external effects which we do have control over. Have you ever wondered why cigarette smokers seem to age faster than others? Some experts argue this is caused by free radical aging, where compounds in the smoke destroy the skin’s DNA. Free radicals are found in exhaust fumes and the sun’s ultraviolet rays, too. It’s important to note this theory isn’t proven, and it has its detractors, but if there is truth to it, CBD could have potent anti-aging effects.

That’s because cannabinoids – including CBD – are antioxidants, and can neutralize the effects of free radicals. These uncharged molecules typically become charged by pinching electrons from skin DNA. But antioxidants stop this process by forming a protective layer, giving the free radicals an electron, and protecting the skin. This is exactly how antioxidants work in the brain, to stop the build up of oxidative stress and neurological issues.

In summary, CBD may have anti-aging effects, through this mechanism or others. But we already know that CBD topicals are nourishing and hydrating for the skin, which may also promote a more youthful appearance. 

Do CBD creams help with inflammation?

Yes, lots of research now points to CBD being effective for inflammation, and it makes sense that topicals can help too with inflammation of the skin. The skin is teeming with CB2 receptors, which are involved with the transmission of messages to the immune system response. 

The best CBD creams for arthritis pain are made with full-spectrum extracts, to deliver the benefits of minor cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. A 2019 paper revealed that hemp flavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties, although whether this bears relevance to the skin remains to be seen. 

Inflammation and the immune system are still poorly understood relative to other effects and systems in the body – it may take some time to fully uncover the effects and benefits of cannabinoids. 

Do CBD creams interact with medication?

When inhaled or taken orally or sublingually, CBD can interact with prescription medications. Research shows that the compound deactivates certain enzymes in the cytochrome P450 system, which slows down the metabolization of various drugs, including antihistamines. This causes these drugs to become more concentrated in the blood, making dosages stronger than they should be. Depending on the drug, this can be risky. 

For this reason, it’s always stressed that anyone planning on self-medicating with CBD – who is already taking prescription drugs – should consult with a doctor, rather than relying on online information. 

The situation may be a little different with CBD creams, as the cannabinoids stay within the skin, as opposed to reaching the bloodstream and being transported around the body. This effect is better understood with cannabis topicals that contain THC. These products, when administered on the skin, do not have a psychoactive effect because the THC never reaches the brain. 

Therefore, CBD creams do not have the same risks concerning drug interactions as other CBD products. But if you do have any doubts, always ask a doctor before using CBD topicals. Always take a cautious approach with your health. 

Do CBD creams work for nerve pain?

There is very little research on the effects of CBD creams for nerve pain, which is typically a chronic form of pain. However, a study on animal models featured in the European Journal of Pain revealed that CBD may help with inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Results from animal studies are not always replicated in humans, but these findings warrant further research. 

If CBD is effective for nerve pain, then CBD creams are a go-to choice, either as a standalone remedy, or in tandem with another CBD product. As we’ve discussed, CBD topicals are great for getting to the source of pain. For instance, with carpal tunnel syndrome, strong CBD creams can be applied to the specific areas causing discomfort. 

Can you use CBD creams for sleep?

CBD creams won’t have any psychological effects, as cannabinoids applied topically don’t pass into the bloodstream and to the brain. So, if you are being kept awake due to insomnia, stress or anxiety, you’ll be better served by tincture oils, edibles, vape juices and flower products. 

However, if you are experiencing sleep problems due to physical pain, CBD topicals have plenty of potential. The soothing and cooling effects of CBD creams for joint pain and other forms of pain can help take your mind off the discomfort. 

These analgesic effects may also stop pain from waking you up in the middle of the night. If using CBD creams on the hands, wearing a glove will help the skin to absorb the cannabinoids, and stop your product from getting all over the bedsheets! 

Can CBD creams make you tired?

High doses of CBD are associated with relaxation, sedation and subsequently tiredness. It’s why some people refrain from taking large doses during the stay, when they need all of their mental and physical capabilities. CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effects, so won’t alter your perception of reality like marijuana, but the sedation may still be a deal-breaker if you need to drive or work with heavy machinery.

But as always, there is a question over whether CBD topicals have the same effect as products that are inhaled or ingested. Since CBD from creams doesn’t reach the brain, these products shouldn’t have a psychological chill-out effect. Creams may have a physically relaxing effect. Although as cannabinoids stay isolated in the area the cream was used, you shouldn’t get the overall ‘body buzz’ and ‘couchlock’ effect that comes from other CBD products.

Can you use CBD creams on sunburns?

Sunburn makes the skin hot, red and sore, so it’s understandable why soothing, nourishing and hydrating CBD creams are suggested as a remedy. Sunburn goes away on its own after a few days, although cooling agents such as aftersun and aloe vera may help, as could mild painkillers. But what about CBD?

CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects may reduce the severity of a sunburn and the pain that comes with it. Moreover, sunburnt skin is susceptible to infection, which antibacterial CBD may protect against. The antioxidant properties of CBD topicals may also have a therapeutic effect for sunburn.

There is good reason to think that CBD may be effective for sunburn, considering what is known about the cannabinoid. However, until studies are conducted looking directly at the relationship between CBD creams and sunburn, it’s impossible to make any definitive judgements. 

Where are CBD creams legal?

Like all CBD products, CBD creams are legal throughout the United States. There are some requirements, however. All hemp-derived products must have no more than 0.3% THC. This stops recreational use of CBD products.

In states that have legalized medical and/or recreational cannabis, you may come across topicals that also contain THC. Always check that your product has less than 0.3% THC before travelling with it to another state or country. Also, not all countries have legalized hemp. Always check your cream is legal at your final destination before making the trip! If you are uncertain, leave your product at home, as some countries still have really strict penalties regarding cannabis and hemp. 

CBD creams vs tincture oils

Comparing CBD creams with tincture oils is a bit like comparing apples with oranges! They are different products with different intended uses! Both products have advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs. If you need internal CBD relief, such as for mental benefits or all-body painkilling effects, tincture oils are probably better. Sublingual oils and sprays are fast-acting, and relief is often apparent just minutes after consumption.

However, if you are tackling a skin complaint or infection, creams are the way forward. Ingested CBD may have benefits for the skin, but taking CBD in this way does not activate skin-based cannabinoid receptors to the same degree that topicals do.

It’s worth noting that CBD oils are effective when applied topically. However, tincture oils generally come in 1oz bottles, whereas cream and salve products usually have a greater overall quantity. As such, with proper topicals, you can apply them more generously, using less CBD in total. Tincture oils are great makeshift topicals if you don’t have a cream or gel to hand, but are no genuine substitute.

Using CBD creams with other CBD products 

CBD products are great individually, but the effects are often even more pronounced when two or more combined. We see this with edibles and vape juices, which have different response times, which makes it possible to time the efffects so they kick in together.

Taking CBD creams with a CBD oil, e-liquid or edible may be helpful for relieving pain and inflammation. If you’re in discomfort, you may want relief throughout the body, with extra relief in particular areas. And that’s exactly what you can get when using a topical in conjunction with another CBD product.

How does it work? Ingesting, inhaling or sublingually taking CBD brings the cannabinoids into the bloodstream, where they are dispersed around the body. This helps alleviate inflammation by acting upon cannabinoid receptors from head to toe. The cream then activates cannabinoid receptors in a specific region of the body to alleviate inlammatory symptoms.

For immediate relief, combine CBD creams with the lightning-fast effects of vape juices and tincture oils. For more sustained effects against chronic symptoms, try CBD capsules, edibles or syrups alongside your cream.

Final thoughts

The CBD cream boom is only just beginning according to many analysts. It’s possible – and perhaps even likely – that as the CBD industry expands in the 2020s, the topical market expands at an even faster rate. Much will come down to how much research is carried out, and whether big-name cosmetic companies look to muscle in on already-successful CBD brands. But it’s pretty clear: the future looks great for CBD creams!

In this post, we’ll explore the different types of CBD edibles on the market, and look at the general effects of these products. We’ll outline how to use them, go through some much-loved CBD edibles recipes, and round up by answering a few frequently asked questions (FAQs). 

This comprehensive guide is great for experienced CBD users who want to learn something new. It’s also easy-to-digest for newcomers to CBD who are looking to find out more about hemp’s benefits and the advantages of edible products.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid, and the main therapeutic component in hemp, a legal strain of cannabis sativa, which has very low amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

CBD has been popularized as a substance offering the health benefits of cannabis, without the ‘high’. This is a slight oversimplification. CBD and THC have different sets of beneficial properties, and in a few cases work oppositely to each other.

However, broadly, CBD is useful for many of the reasons that people take marijuana, according to early research. We’re still awaiting important clinical studies on CBD’s mental and physical qualities. But scientists have made great leaps in our understanding of CBD in the past couple of decades.

Essential to these discoveries was bringing the endocannabinoid system (ECS) out of the biological dark. This long-hidden system was finally found in the early 1990s, and has helped to explain many of the mechanisms that CBD operates in. Having a better idea of CBD’s actions in the body means it’s easier to refine research and make more breakthroughs.

Popular CBD edibles at CBDVapeJuice.net 

CBDVapeJuice.net stocks a broad selection of CBD-infused edible and gummy products. Check out our full range by heading over to the store. We’ve selected four top quality edibles to review in this post. 

CBD Genesis Gummies

Our very own CBD Genesis Gummies contain pure CBD-isolate with no THC whatsoever. This is an organic, pesticide-free and third-party lab-tested product, so you know exactly what you’re getting. These gummies are crafted just like any other candies, and really do taste delicious. We have a few different gummies in our collection, with different dosages of CBD. 

The 500mg pack consists of 20 gummies, with 25mg of CBD-isolate in each. This mid-range CBD dose is good for beginners who are seeking relaxing effects from their CBD, and also for those looking to supplement their endocannabinoid system. We also have 1000mg packs of regular and sour gummy worms, which delivers 50mg of CBD per serving. The higher dosage is recommended for experienced CBD users who are familiar with the compound’s sedative effects.

CBD Genesis Gummies are the perfect way to dose up on CBD wherever you are. They don’t have any hemp or weed-like aroma, and look just like the gummies you’d find at the candy store.

Jolly Green Oil Party Pack 

jolly green oil gummiesFor a cost-effective, high-dose CBD option, look no further than the 1000mg Party Pack from Jolly Green Oil. Each one of these lab-tested, organic gummies has a hefty 50mg of CBD-isolate, and every pack comes with an assortment of CBD-infused treats. 

A 50mg dose is fairly high for first-time CBD users. However, because of the even distribution of CBD throughout the edible, you can easily split it in half and enjoy 25mg at a time. Indeed, a 25mg dose may be better in the daytime, when you can’t risk getting too relaxed from CBD! However, the full 50mg or even a double dose should work a treat for those who desire stronger relief. 

This product is called a ‘Party Pack’, and there is good reason to share! CBD has garnered attention for having anti-anxiety effects, which makes these edibles a potential social lubricant. Put these out a party and you’ll be offering your guests a non-psychoactive and non-addictive way to manage their anxiety and stress levels. 

Heady Harvest CBD Gummies

CBD Gummies from Heady Harvest are really popular with CBDVapeJuice.net customers, perhaps because of the wide variety. All of their gummies contain a THC-free, CBD-isolate hemp extract, and are completely organic. The Regular and Sour Gummy Bears are available in packs of 20, at strengths of 10, 25 and 50mg per serving. 

What’s more, Heady Harvest Gummies are more potent and bioavailable than many other CBD treats. That’s thanks to the inclusion of MCT-rich fractionated coconut oil. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) help the body to metabolize CBD, so that a higher percentage of your dose becomes activated in the bloodstream. The more bioavailable a product is, the greater the effects of any individual dosage. 

Heady Harvest CBD Gummies are dependable, and an excellent starter product if you are yet to experience CBD edible effects. If you love CBD and gummy bears, then you’ll definitely love these!

Pinnacle CBD Honey Sticks 

Pinnacle uses a full-spectrum hemp extract in its tasty honey sticks, bringing together the benefits of CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC and an array of flavonoids and terpenes. These 10mg CBD honey sticks do have trace levels of THC (less than 0.3%), as is standard with full-spectrum CBD products. With five honey sticks per pack, this works out to 50mg of CBD. 

CBD honey sticks can be eaten as they are, or melted into hot drinks. Either way, the cannabinoids are taken orally, and are therefore gradually absorbed into the bloodstream. These low-dose honey sticks produce stimulating effects, especially for focus and concentration. If you suffer from brain fog in the workplace or elsewhere, Pinnacle honey sticks are ideal for decluttering the mind and promoting mental clarity.

CBD-isolate vs. full-spectrum edibles

Like all CBD products, edibles are infused with either a CBD-isolate or full-spectrum hemp extract. Both have upsides and downsides, depending on user preferences.

CBD-isolate 

The extraction process splits CBD compounds away from the rest of the hemp plant, creating a pure extract. CBD-isolate extracts are the base for THC-free products. These attract people who want guaranteed protection from drug tests. 

Some consider CBD-isolate more reliable against certain symptoms, as there are no external compounds interfering with the effects. A few CBD-isolate products also contain natural terpenes. These keep products THC-free, while topping up the overall benefits.

Full-spectrum hemp

These CBD oil edibles feature whole-plant extracts. Full-spectrum products are CBD-rich, but also have a nice helping of secondary cannabinoids, like cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabidivarin (CBDV). Terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, omega-3, 6 and 9, vitamins and minerals are also present.

Full-spectrum edibles highlight that hemp is more than just CBD. This complete blend of helpful compounds makes these edibles more effective than CBD-isolate products. The benefits may be enhanced further still by the ‘entourage effect’. This is a proposed synergistic reaction that goes on in hemp and cannabis, when the plant is enjoyed as one.

So, if full-spectrum is better, why doesn’t everybody use it? These products do have a small concentration of THC, keeping with the theme of an entire hemp extract. By federal law, this THC content must be kept below 0.3% of the total product weight. Moreover, full-spectrum CBD is a little more expensive than CBD-isolate. However, this often pays for itself with all the extra compounds that embellish CBD edible effects.

General CBD edibles effects

How do CBD edibles compare with vape juices, tincture oils, cigarettes and joints? Firstly, edibles – like all orally-taken products – provide more measured relief, rather than a blast all at once. This comes down to how the CBD is metabolized and absorbed into the bloodstream.

CBD from edibles doesn’t get the direct entry that inhaled or sublingually absorbed CBD does. Instead, the compounds must go through the first-pass metabolism. The first-pass effect slows down CBD’s activation time and also reduces bioavailability.

Before cannabinoids are delivered into the bloodstream, they must go through the digestive system and liver. Many drugs, including CBD, are metabolized in the liver, and the organ reduces how much of the drug becomes active.

That said, the first-pass effect transforms cannabinoids into slightly different compounds – in the case of THC, this enhances potency. Therefore, oral administration does not necessarily reduce the effectiveness, but the first-pass effect does mean ingested CBD has a slower response time than sublingually absorbed or inhaled CBD.

In reality, this means users may be waiting for an hour or two before their edible dose is having the desired effect. Everyone experiences the benefits of edibles uniquely, with metabolism speed, size, weight and other variables having an impact. This can make dosing more difficult, as we’ll explain later.

The slow onset of effects may be frustrating, but edibles more than make up for this as the CBD lasts for a lot longer. These extended effects are an economical way of combating chronic symptoms. They also offer CBD coverage throughout the night, which is great for easing ailments that affect sleep duration and quality (e.g. sleep apnea, chronic pain, anxiety). 

CBD edibles for pain

Check any survey on CBD use in the United States, and chronic pain always heads the list of reasons for taking CBD. This is perhaps partially because the term is ambiguous, and covers a range of conditions. But there’s a more simple truth to be had: lots of people are using CBD for pain, and finding it helps!

Research on CBD’s effectiveness for pain – and it’s viability as a treatment option – is inconclusive. The studies we have suggest the ECS controls pain perception somewhat. CBD, and the endocannabinoid anandamide, also engage with vanilloid receptors that regulate how we feel pain. 

There are also many types of pain (e.g. chronic, neuropathic and inflammatory). Edibles are more useful for chronic and lasting inflammatory symptoms. The slow CBD delivery effectively rules CBD out as an acute pain treatment. 

However, for relieving pain during the day, so it’s possible to focus on mental and physical tasks, edibles are ideal. With up to eight hours of relief from one dose, there’s no need to top up four or five times a day. And as we’ve already explored, if nighttime relief is a priority, the longer relief produced by edibles (and also capsules and syrups) is the only relief that’s worth having!

Hopefully we’ll get more high-quality studies soon to confirm the analgesic value of CBD, especially in regard to CBD edibles for pain. 

Edibles for sleep

A good night’s sleep is key for a number of reasons. Obviously, it stops us feeling fatigued and being mentally and physically below par. But a healthy sleep pattern with a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night is also important for the brain. Studies show that during deep sleep, the brain removes harmful toxins and plaques which accelerate the progression of neurodegenerative illnesses.

There is optimism around CBD as a sleep remedy. For one, the non-addictive, sedative effects are just what’s required to promote better sleep. And two, CBD is arguably better than other sleeping tablets that can cause dependence and are riddled with side effects.

Taking CBD edibles for sleep makes sense, and particularly if an ailment is causing you to wake up in the middle of the night. The lasting relief from insomnia, and sleep-disrupting factors like pain and anxiety is ideal. Most find edibles better than other CBD products for sleep.

CBD edibles for anxiety 

CBD products with a rapid speed of delivery are generally seen as best for anxiety. However, gradual effects of edibles may also have benefits for some users. Perhaps the most significant research on CBD and anxiety to date was conducted with capsules, an orally-taken treatment that works in the same way to edibles.

Participants received either a 600mg CBD dose or a placebo treatment, with the CBD group performing better in all areas on a simulated public speaking experiment. This intriguing study highlighted the real-life potential of CBD for anxiety, and showed how the cannabinoid may reduce social anxiety symptoms. 

The gradual onset of CBD edible effects means you’ll have to be savvy if using these products for anxiety. For example, if you have an anxiety-triggering social event coming up, take a dose about an hour or so beforehand. This will help prevent anxiety from arising in the first place, rather than simply suppress symptoms. 

It’s not always possible to predict which situations will cause anxiety. However, with a discreet product like edibles, you can have CBD on hand for whenever you need it – you can even take edibles on a plane to aid with anxiety!

Edibles for arthritis

CBD has interesting anti-inflammatory properties that may help bring forth a new era of arthritis medication. Research suggests the compound may assist with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease, and osteoarthritis, a form of arthritis caused by wear and tear to the bones and joints, and severe levels of inflammation.

It all comes down to how endocannabinoids and cannabinoids influence the body’s immune system, courtesy of interactions within the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Discovering the ECS has introduced researchers to a novel way of accessing the immune system. In the long run, we may see the emergence of cannabinoid-based anti-inflammatory drugs to replace existing non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs). Both CBD and THC, along with numerous other secondary cannabinoids, have exhibited anti-inflammatory effects in tests.

This emphasizes the benefits of taking full-spectrum edibles to manage arthritis. And with symptoms often chronic and ever-present, edibles could be the best way of dealing with the condition. Some find value in combining edibles with CBD-infused topicals. Applying creams to the affected area engages CB2 receptors in the part of the body where its most crucial to regulate inflammation, in order to reduce symptoms.

CBD edibles for headaches and migraines 

Look back through the history books, and specifically Western pharmacopoeias of the mid-19th century, and you’ll see cannabis proposed and even recommended as a remedy for migraines. At this time, psychoactive cannabis was a curious drug to the West, having been brought back by merchants from South Asia.

Nearly 200 years on, and those early medical experts may have hit the nail on the head! The latest research on the ECS indicates that dysfunction in the system could be the underlying cause of migraines. As such, a regulating compound like CBD is a possible treatment option.

We know that CBD likely has an analgesic effect, which may alleviate the pain of headaches and migraines. It’s also mooted that regulating CB1 receptors in the ECS helps tackle photophobia and phonophobia (increased light and sound sensitivity). These are the ‘aura’ symptoms many migraine patients suffer from.

Headaches and migraines can rear their ugly head at any time. The discretion provided by edibles means you don’t need to sit and suffer with symptoms. Moreover, the longer effects of CBD oil edibles may prevent a migraine from coming back once it has subsided. 

Edibles for low mood

Low mood and motivation adversely affects all aspects of life. If your head isn’t the right place, reaching your full potential becomes impossible. Thankfully, if you are in a slump, there are safe and natural ways to help break out of it! 

CBD edibles have two positive effects that may reduce low mood and depression. Firstly, CBD is an anandamide reuptake inhibitor. Increasing availability of this antidepressant endocannabinoid in the brain theoretically boosts mood. 

Secondly, CBD also combats neuroinflammation (or inflammation of the brain). Of late, depression experts are realizing the disorder is not merely a result of chemical imbalance – indeed, that may not even be the key factor. Instead, the physical damage caused to various brain regions by inflammation could be what’s causing prolonged periods of low mood and depression. CBD works to heal these affected brain regions, restoring damaged circuitry and supporting neurogenesis (brain growth) in areas where atrophy (shrinkage) has occurred, such as the hippocampus. 

Neuroscience is complex stuff. But the key takeaway is that CBD has unique antidepressant qualities, compared to existing drugs. Edibles are perfect as the lasting effects will help keep your mood up all day long!

Edibles as supplements

Looking for a new supplement to add to your stack? CBD is not like any vitamin or mineral you may already be using. Very few compounds are known to interact with the ECS, and CBD is especially beneficial for this system, which has such a critical role in promoting good overall well-being. 

CBD edibles have a range of benefits, from reducing pain perception, to improving cognition, regulating sleep and even enhancing reproductive health. Supplementing the body with CBD ensures the ECS has enough endocannabinoids to regulate both CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD perhaps has numerous other health benefits that researchers are yet to come across.

All in all, CBD is a safe, non-addictive and non-psychotropic supplement with subtle, but seriously good effects.

How to use CBD edibles 

Dosing with CBD edible products is really, really simple – you simply decide what dosage you want, and eat it! However, it can take some time to get used to edibles, if you aren’t currently a CBD user, or have previously only taken fast-acting products, such as flower, e-liquids and sublingual oils. Taking the wrong amount of CBD doesn’t pose any negative health risks, as cannabis edibles may do. But regularly consuming higher doses than needed makes taking CBD more expensive than it should be.

Whether you have or haven’t taken CBD edibles before, we recommend starting at a low dose. This is not just for precautionary measures, but because of the different way CBD is absorbed into the body with edibles. A 20mg vaporized dose will affect you differently than a 20mg edible dose. Furthermore, edibles hit more slowly, because absorption takes longer. Inhaled or sublingually absorbed CBD kicks in after just a few minutes, but the initial effects from edibles can take an hour or more to show. 

Hence why starting small is the best course of action. If after two hours or so you find that the first dose wasn’t strong enough, then feel free to top it up. You can always add to your dose, but you can never take from it! Again, there are no significant side effects to be had from taking too much CBD, but it could make you feel very sedated and sleepy. 

Keep a journal of your edible experiences

It may sound a little cheesy, but keeping a written record of your experiences every time you take CBD edibles provides you with valuable, personalized information about how these products impact you. To say is to forget, to write is to remember, according to a famous Chinese proverb! 

Knowing to the letter how your body responds to varying CBD dosages helps a great deal when it comes to fine-tuning. After a few edible sessions, you’ll have a good understanding of what dosages you need for certain ailments. And this will make your CBD edible use more economical and efficient. No longer will you be taking too much, and rarely will you have to top up your dose!

CBD edibles recipe 

Ready to make your own CBD edibles? It’s much easier than you’d think, and there are a couple of ways to go about it. There’s nothing stopping you from adding CBD-isolate crystals or CBD oil to your recipes, although many edible lovers prefer starting from scratch. For this, you’ll need some CBD flower buds. Decide whether you want an energizing, relaxing or balanced experience, and choose a sativa, indica or hybrid strain accordingly. 

Decarboxylation is the first step – heating the flower is necessary to turn cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) into CBD. Simply break up your CBD-rich flower buds into small chunks and heat in the oven for 45 minutes at 250F. On average just under 90% of the CBDa is successfully turned into CBD. 

Step-by-step guide

Now it’s time to make the extract which can then be infused into oil or butter, and used in recipes. For every cup of butter, you’ll need between 7 and 10 grams of CBD flower. 

After decarboxylating the CBD herb, grind it up finely. Melt a cup of butter with a cup of water into a saucepan, and simmer. The water is necessary to stop the butter from burning, and to provide control over the temperature. As the butter starts to melt in the pan, mix in the ground-up decarboxylated flower.

Continue to simmer (at around 200F) for at least two and a half hours. Stir every 15 to 20 minutes. Ensure that the mixture never boils over, as very high temperatures will burn off the cannabinoids, making the extract useless.

After allowing the butter and flower to simmer for a few hours, it’s time to strain the mixture. By now, the cannabinoids should be infused into the butter. Get a jar or container, position a funnel over it and line the funnel with cheesecloth. Gradually pour the butter into the funnel, allowing it to strain into the jar. Let this process happen naturally, as forcing the butter through the cheesecloth could give the butter a foul taste.

After straining the butter, refrigerate it for at least one hour before draining out any excess water. The strength of your butter will depend on how much butter and flower you have used. Keep this in mind when deciding how much to use in your recipes. When cooking with CBD-infused butter, always keep temperatures below 250F to avoid burning off the cannabinoids.

Are CBD edibles legal?

Yes, CBD edibles are legal in the United States, providing they conform to regulations surrounding industrial hemp. All industrial hemp products must have less than 0.3% THC, as per the 2018 Farm Bill. It is this strict ruling which prevents CBD products from having a psychoactive and intoxicating effect. 

Are CBD edibles safe?

Overwhelmingly, the evidence shows that CBD is a safe substance. Research into the compound has picked up a lot over recent years, and now even the World Health Organization is paying attention. The WHO states that CBD has “no abuse potential” in its pure form. Further to this, studies have shown that the body can handle very high dosages – much more than anyone would need to consume – without any health problems. 

A high CBD edible dosage may leave you feeling very sleepy for several hours. If you are experiencing strong sedation, you should avoid driving and using heavy machinery. However, this advice is applicable when it comes to taking any supplement. 

CBD may interfere with certain prescription drugs, as molecules appear to deactivate enzymes in the cytochrome P450 system. Slowing down activity in this system reduces the body’s ability to break down various substances, essentially subjecting the user to an increased dosage of the drug in question. This could be problematic in certain cases. 

If you are currently on medication and are worried about taking CBD alongside it, speak with your doctor first. Getting legitimate advice from a medical professional who knows your health situation carries much more weight than any generalized advice you may read online. 

Is it safe to mix CBD edibles with alcohol?

There is nothing obviously risky about mixing alcohol with CBD edibles, or any other CBD products. There are no known adverse effects from combining the two, which is logical since CBD doesn’t have any intoxicating effects. This is in contrast to mixing alcohol with psychoactive cannabis, which could cause negative and unforeseen effects.

However, just because it seems safe to mix CBD edibles with alcohol doesn’t necessarily mean you should do it. A strong edible dose combined with multiple alcoholic beverages could leave you feeling rather sleepy after a few hours. This may or may not be a problem depending where you are. And, of course, you should never drive after drinking alcohol. 

Mixing CBD edibles with alcohol isn’t something we’d recommend, but nor is it something we would warn against. Use your discretion and assess how your body reacts to having both in your system at the same time. If you are intent on taking the two together, just be sensible!

Can CBD edibles cause nausea?

CBD is not linked to nausea, and if anything, research suggests the cannabinoid actually helps with nauseous symptoms. That said, there may be anomalies and scientists still have more to learn about CBD. It’s possible that CBD edibles won’t work for you, which is why you should always start with a low dose. Minimize your chances of having a bad experience with CBD edibles by purchasing only from trusted vendors that comply with third-party testing practices.

Can I travel with CBD edibles? 

Travelling with CBD edibles is legal! Unlike marijuana, industrial hemp-based CBD products are legal according to federal law. Therefore, it’s perfectly fine to take CBD into airports and cross state boundaries with products. Taking CBD edibles to another country could be an issue, depending on where it is you’re travelling. Always confirm that CBD is legal at your final destination – and any locations you may be passing through – before attempting to fly with products. 

While we’re discussing travelling, CBD edibles are the ideal form of CBD to take on a flight. Flying can be troublesome for many reasons. Perhaps the lack of legroom exacerbates the pain in your dodgy knee, or maybe the flying itself leaves you drowning in anxiety. With CBD edibles, you can get the relief you need without being bothered by anybody else. There’s no aroma to get concerned about, and most edibles look exactly the same as standard candies and gummies. And if you’re fretting about somebody seeing the CBD packaging and asking unwanted questions, just mix the edibles in with your regular sweets!  

Final thoughts

Historically, edibles have always been the second-most popular cannabis and hemp product, coming in just behind flower. That may have changed somewhat with so many new products hitting the market in recent times, but edibles are still special, and offer a unique CBD experience. And for many symptoms, the drawn-out effects are much preferable to the shorter relief provided by other CBD products. 

We hope this detailed guide to CBD edibles has helped you become more familiar with the various types of products on sale and what they may help with, and also given you food for thought on making edibles from scratch! We also hope we’ve addressed any pressing questions and concerns about edibles and CBD in general.

Heady Harvest: Your Guide to the 2019 Collection

HARVEST

Your Guide to the

2019 Collection

Heady Harvest makes legal, hemp-based CBD products. These dietary supplements are thought to have multiple mental and physical health benefits. Best of all, hemp-derived CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addictive and has very few side effects.

This article will look at Heady Harvest as a brand, before delving into detailed reviews on their most popular products. This is the perfect introduction if you’re just getting familiar with Heady Harvest and CBD. And as a special thank you, keep reading until the end for our Heady Harvest coupon code. Use it to get 10% off Heady Harvest products at CBDVapeJuice.net!

Who is Heady Harvest?

Heady Harvest is a CBD company manufacturing legal hemp-derived products with less than 0.3% THC. They are focussed on creating organic and vegan-friendly products, with an emphasis on quality. For example, some of their products contain fractionated coconut oil, an ingredient known to embellish CBD’s effects. Heady Harvest uses a method called “vapor extraction” to get its hemp extracts. It would be nice to hear a little more about this process, and how it compares to the more common supercritical CO2 extraction that other leading brands employ.

Many products are also “THC-free”, and contain only “naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes.” These are good signs, although once again, we would like to know more about how they ensure this purity. This brand has been operating in the United States for a few years now, and their products are really popular with our customers. A quick glance at the reviews show their CBD gummies are rated at 4.84/5 from more than 90 reviews, as of October 2019!

Heady Harvest CBD review

The cannabidiol (CBD) boom has been unexpected and rapid. It all came thanks to a law change in 2014, which made hemp products legal. Lawmakers were keen to make sure legislation in the 2014 Farm Bill didn’t create a space for psychoactive products. Therefore, the THC limit was set at 0.3 percent. However, by not considering the other cannabinoids, the Farm Bill effectively legalized CBD. Until that point, CBD was still illegal under the Controlled Substances Act. With a gap in the market, brands like Heady Harvest started making hemp products with high CBD concentrations. Over several decades, researchers have gradually become aware of CBD’s therapeutic properties.

The compound may help with inflammation, pain, low mood, stress and anxiety. And CBD was clinically approved in 2018 as a treatment for rare epileptic seizures. Heady Harvest cannot sell its products as medicines, so markets them as dietary supplements – as is the case for all hemp-based CBD brands vending in the United States. But they have developed an exciting range of products, some of which are pretty unique. That’s a rare and impressive heat in such a packed and competitive CBD industry! Let’s take you on a whistle-stop tour of their best-sellers.

Heady Harvest CBD Gummies

Each pack of gummies contains 20 servings of “pure-spectrum” CBD-rich hemp extract. We currently have three strengths available (200mg, 500mg and 1000mg), which equates to 10mg, 25mg and 50mg per gummy. Choose between regular gummy bears and sour gummy bears! Heady Harvest CBD gummies taste just like gummies from your favorite candy brands. And the best bit is that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating these! CBD-infused gummy bears are super discreet, and ideal if you want to consume CBD at work, while travelling or in any situation where you don’t want others to know!

The 200mg pack is perfect for becoming acquainted with CBD edible effects – 10mg is a good starting dose, and you can experiment with higher dosages if required. Most will probably find the 500mg pack strong enough, but the 1000mg gummies are there if you need stronger relief, perhaps for help with sleep, pain or anxiety. Just bear in mind that with CBD edibles, you may have to wait an hour or more for the CBD to fully take effect. With this method of delivery, the CBD must go through the ‘first-pass metabolism’ before CBD can be dispersed around the body in the bloodstream, and interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). But the big benefit is that the effects last a lot longer!

Heady Harvest CBD Lollipops

Lollipops are another quality CBD edible product, and actually give you even more control over your dose than gummies. Whereas with gummies, you’re getting the whole dose at once, you can gradually work your way through a lollipop, and enjoy a few milligrams at a time. Heady Harvest CBD Lollipops are non-GMO, THC-free and gluten-free, and consist of 30mg pure CBD. Each pack contains two lollipops, bringing the total CBD count to 60mg. Heady Harvest currently makes infused lollipops in eight flavors: Raspberry, Cherry, Grape, Mango, Peach, Pomegranate, Strawberry and Watermelon.

The steady absorption of CBD into your system is great if you need to keep your CBD levels topped up throughout the day. Perhaps you want to take the edge off stress or anxiety, or maybe you are trying to maintain your concentration levels. Whatever it is, the enduring relief should serve you well.

Heady Harvest CBD Syrup

CBD syrup from Heady Harvest features a CBD-rich, THC-free hemp extract, and is infused with an array of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes for added effects. Research indicates that the terpenes in hemp have health benefits. Harnessing them enhances the therapeutic value of CBD products like this one.

Heady Harvest CBD Syrup comes with 250mg or 500mg of CBD, and is typically mixed with either a hot or cold beverage. This makes syrup a stealthy way to get your CBD dose in the office, on a plane, or anytime when you’re in need of a convenient intake method. Simply measure out how much syrup you want, mix it into your drink, and enjoy!

As CBD syrup is consumed orally, expect similar effects to those from gummies, lollipops and any other edible. The steady onset of CBD is perfect for tackling chronic symptoms. However, for acute symptoms, a faster-acting product, such as tincture oils, may be better suited.

Heady Harvest CBD Pixie Sticks

Americans love Pixie Sticks, and this candy favorite is now available with CBD, thanks to Heady Harvest! These treats have the same fizzy powder we know and love, and are perfect for spreading out your CBD dose throughout the day! Each Pixie Stick has 25mg of CBD-isolate, eliminating any risk of popping a drug test. And 25mg is a good starting dose for CBD newbies.

At CBDVapeJuice.net, we have four flavors of these pixie sticks for sale: Strawberry, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry and Orange. These can be purchased individually, or in sets of 12. Looking for a quirky, unconventional, yet undercover way of getting your CBD hit? Then try these Pixie Sticks! They’re great for taking the edge off when you’re stressed, or focussing your mind when you need to work. And they’re tasty, too!

CBD Energy Capsules

Most CBD capsule products simply have a CBD extract and nothing else. Heady Harvest has challenged the status quo with these energy capsules, which combine 25mg of CBD with 725mg of matcha. “What’s matcha?” you may be asking? It’s the ground powder of a special type of green tea. It’s popular in east Asian countries for fighting fatigue, and contains amino acids, antioxidants and easily absorbed nutrients. There are 60 Heady Harvest Energy Capsules per tub, which works out to 1500mg of CBD in all. The stimulating effects are great with your morning tea or coffee, giving you the energy and motivation to face the day with the right mental approach.

These capsules will also help perk you up in the afternoons if you begin to tire.Capsules are awesome, especially when multiple ingredients are mixed together. With everything infused into a small, digestible capsule, you can get CBD’s benefits conveniently, while also knowing exactly how much you’re taking. Be aware that capsule effects are much like edibles when it comes to getting the effects. No CBD can be absorbed until the capsule is digested and the extract is taken into the bloodstream. This may take an hour or more.

CBD Sleep Capsules

Heady Harvest has replicated what they managed with their energy capsules, but this time for relaxation and sleep. Once again, every tub comes with 60 capsules of 25mg CBD. This time, there’s a wide profile of other ingredients included, namely melatonin, chamomile and kava. So, what do these three extracts bring to the table?

1 5mg of melatonin

The pineal gland in the brain releases melatonin, a hormone, during the evenings. This is essentially our circadian rhythm (or sleep-wake cycle) telling us it’s time to sleep! Melatonin is well-known as a natural sleep remedy, and is also a useful tool or overcoming jet lag. Mixed with CBD and other soothing extracts, melatonin’s effects are only enhanced.

2 700mg of chamomile

Chamomile tea’s calming effects are immensely popular, and it’s no shock to see Heady Harvest bring this plant into their sleep capsules. Studies on chamomile suggest the apigenin chemical within the herb lowers anxiety and promotes sleep through interactions with receptors in the brain. Research also shows that chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties, so pairs well with CBD.

3100mg of kava

Pacific Islanders have known all about kava for millennia, and now the word has gone global. Kava has gained recognition as an herb that encourages sleep while dissolving anxiety and boosting mood. Kava also helps with relaxing the muscles and ridding the body of any unhelpful nervous tension. Adding kava to the sleep capsules is an inspired move from Heady Harvest.

CBD Coconut Tincture Oil

Heady Harvest hasn’t just blended coconut into their tincture for flavor. No, coconut is a wonderful source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), key compounds for levelling up CBD’s bioavailability. And a higher bioavailability means a more potent dose, and a more cost-effective product. Heady Harvest uses a CBD-rich, THC-free extract in this multipurpose tincture.The tincture comes in 30ml bottles, in strengths of 500mg and 1000mg. With a full dropper holding 1ml, that’s 16.7mg and 33.3mg of CBD per full serving. The CBD tincture responds most quickly when dripped under the tongue, a form of sublingual absorption. However, the oil is also effective as a food ingredient, and when stirred into a hot beverage.

Technically, the Heady Harvest also works on the skin, as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial compound.Users tend to take CBD oil sublingually, as the speedier effects are excellent at relieving anxiety and pain, as well as improving mood, while maintaining quality of life. The more instant delivery is necessary for conditions with acute symptoms, where the effectiveness of a remedy is defined by how quickly it provides relief. Furthermore, if you just want to buy one CBD product that can be used in many different ways, buying a tincture oil is the logical move!

HARVEST

Your Guide to the

2019 Collection

Heady Harvest makes legal, hemp-based CBD products. These dietary supplements are thought to have multiple mental and physical health benefits. Best of all, hemp-derived CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addictive and has very few side effects.

This article will look at Heady Harvest as a brand, before delving into detailed reviews on their most popular products. This is the perfect introduction if you’re just getting familiar with Heady Harvest and CBD. And as a special thank you, keep reading until the end for our Heady Harvest coupon code. Use it to get 10% off Heady Harvest products at CBDVapeJuice.net!

Who is Heady Harvest?

Heady Harvest is a CBD company manufacturing legal hemp-derived products with less than 0.3% THC. They are focussed on creating organic and vegan-friendly products, with an emphasis on quality. For example, some of their products contain fractionated coconut oil, an ingredient known to embellish CBD’s effects. Heady Harvest uses a method called “vapor extraction” to get its hemp extracts. It would be nice to hear a little more about this process, and how it compares to the more common supercritical CO2 extraction that other leading brands employ.

Many products are also “THC-free”, and contain only “naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes.” These are good signs, although once again, we would like to know more about how they ensure this purity. This brand has been operating in the United States for a few years now, and their products are really popular with our customers. A quick glance at the reviews show their CBD gummies are rated at 4.84/5 from more than 90 reviews, as of October 2019!

Heady Harvest CBD review

The cannabidiol (CBD) boom has been unexpected and rapid. It all came thanks to a law change in 2014, which made hemp products legal. Lawmakers were keen to make sure legislation in the 2014 Farm Bill didn’t create a space for psychoactive products. Therefore, the THC limit was set at 0.3 percent. However, by not considering the other cannabinoids, the Farm Bill effectively legalized CBD. Until that point, CBD was still illegal under the Controlled Substances Act. With a gap in the market, brands like Heady Harvest started making hemp products with high CBD concentrations. Over several decades, researchers have gradually become aware of CBD’s therapeutic properties.

The compound may help with inflammation, pain, low mood, stress and anxiety. And CBD was clinically approved in 2018 as a treatment for rare epileptic seizures. Heady Harvest cannot sell its products as medicines, so markets them as dietary supplements – as is the case for all hemp-based CBD brands vending in the United States. But they have developed an exciting range of products, some of which are pretty unique. That’s a rare and impressive heat in such a packed and competitive CBD industry! Let’s take you on a whistle-stop tour of their best-sellers.

Heady Harvest CBD Gummies

Each pack of gummies contains 20 servings of “pure-spectrum” CBD-rich hemp extract. We currently have three strengths available (200mg, 500mg and 1000mg), which equates to 10mg, 25mg and 50mg per gummy. Choose between regular gummy bears and sour gummy bears! Heady Harvest CBD gummies taste just like gummies from your favorite candy brands. And the best bit is that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating these! CBD-infused gummy bears are super discreet, and ideal if you want to consume CBD at work, while travelling or in any situation where you don’t want others to know!

The 200mg pack is perfect for becoming acquainted with CBD edible effects – 10mg is a good starting dose, and you can experiment with higher dosages if required. Most will probably find the 500mg pack strong enough, but the 1000mg gummies are there if you need stronger relief, perhaps for help with sleep, pain or anxiety. Just bear in mind that with CBD edibles, you may have to wait an hour or more for the CBD to fully take effect. With this method of delivery, the CBD must go through the ‘first-pass metabolism’ before CBD can be dispersed around the body in the bloodstream, and interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). But the big benefit is that the effects last a lot longer!

Heady Harvest CBD Lollipops

Lollipops are another quality CBD edible product, and actually give you even more control over your dose than gummies. Whereas with gummies, you’re getting the whole dose at once, you can gradually work your way through a lollipop, and enjoy a few milligrams at a time. Heady Harvest CBD Lollipops are non-GMO, THC-free and gluten-free, and consist of 30mg pure CBD. Each pack contains two lollipops, bringing the total CBD count to 60mg. Heady Harvest currently makes infused lollipops in eight flavors: Raspberry, Cherry, Grape, Mango, Peach, Pomegranate, Strawberry and Watermelon.

The steady absorption of CBD into your system is great if you need to keep your CBD levels topped up throughout the day. Perhaps you want to take the edge off stress or anxiety, or maybe you are trying to maintain your concentration levels. Whatever it is, the enduring relief should serve you well.

Heady Harvest CBD Syrup

CBD syrup from Heady Harvest features a CBD-rich, THC-free hemp extract, and is infused with an array of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes for added effects. Research indicates that the terpenes in hemp have health benefits. Harnessing them enhances the therapeutic value of CBD products like this one.

Heady Harvest CBD Syrup comes with 250mg or 500mg of CBD, and is typically mixed with either a hot or cold beverage. This makes syrup a stealthy way to get your CBD dose in the office, on a plane, or anytime when you’re in need of a convenient intake method. Simply measure out how much syrup you want, mix it into your drink, and enjoy!

As CBD syrup is consumed orally, expect similar effects to those from gummies, lollipops and any other edible. The steady onset of CBD is perfect for tackling chronic symptoms. However, for acute symptoms, a faster-acting product, such as tincture oils, may be better suited.

Heady Harvest CBD Pixie Sticks

Americans love Pixie Sticks, and this candy favorite is now available with CBD, thanks to Heady Harvest! These treats have the same fizzy powder we know and love, and are perfect for spreading out your CBD dose throughout the day! Each Pixie Stick has 25mg of CBD-isolate, eliminating any risk of popping a drug test. And 25mg is a good starting dose for CBD newbies.

At CBDVapeJuice.net, we have four flavors of these pixie sticks for sale: Strawberry, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry and Orange. These can be purchased individually, or in sets of 12. Looking for a quirky, unconventional, yet undercover way of getting your CBD hit? Then try these Pixie Sticks! They’re great for taking the edge off when you’re stressed, or focussing your mind when you need to work. And they’re tasty, too!

CBD Energy Capsules

Most CBD capsule products simply have a CBD extract and nothing else. Heady Harvest has challenged the status quo with these energy capsules, which combine 25mg of CBD with 725mg of matcha. “What’s matcha?” you may be asking? It’s the ground powder of a special type of green tea. It’s popular in east Asian countries for fighting fatigue, and contains amino acids, antioxidants and easily absorbed nutrients. There are 60 Heady Harvest Energy Capsules per tub, which works out to 1500mg of CBD in all. The stimulating effects are great with your morning tea or coffee, giving you the energy and motivation to face the day with the right mental approach.

These capsules will also help perk you up in the afternoons if you begin to tire.Capsules are awesome, especially when multiple ingredients are mixed together. With everything infused into a small, digestible capsule, you can get CBD’s benefits conveniently, while also knowing exactly how much you’re taking. Be aware that capsule effects are much like edibles when it comes to getting the effects. No CBD can be absorbed until the capsule is digested and the extract is taken into the bloodstream. This may take an hour or more.

CBD Sleep Capsules

Heady Harvest has replicated what they managed with their energy capsules, but this time for relaxation and sleep. Once again, every tub comes with 60 capsules of 25mg CBD. This time, there’s a wide profile of other ingredients included, namely melatonin, chamomile and kava. So, what do these three extracts bring to the table?

1 5mg of melatonin

The pineal gland in the brain releases melatonin, a hormone, during the evenings. This is essentially our circadian rhythm (or sleep-wake cycle) telling us it’s time to sleep! Melatonin is well-known as a natural sleep remedy, and is also a useful tool or overcoming jet lag. Mixed with CBD and other soothing extracts, melatonin’s effects are only enhanced.

2 700mg of chamomile

Chamomile tea’s calming effects are immensely popular, and it’s no shock to see Heady Harvest bring this plant into their sleep capsules. Studies on chamomile suggest the apigenin chemical within the herb lowers anxiety and promotes sleep through interactions with receptors in the brain. Research also shows that chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties, so pairs well with CBD.

3100mg of kava

Kava also helps with relaxing the muscles and ridding the body of any unhelpful nervous tension. Adding kava to the sleep capsules is an inspired move from Heady Harvest.

Fresh Leaf CBD: At the Forefront of the CBD Industry in 2019

Fresh Leaf CBD

At the Forefront of the

CBD Industry in 2019

This brand guide will look at Fresh Leaf, an American company selling hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products all over the country. We’ll discuss the brand’s approach to making CBD products, and the potential benefits of taking the substance. We’ll go into detail on the most popular products from the Fresh Leaf CBD selection. We’ve also got a special discount for you as a thank you for checking out the blog! Let’s get started with this Fresh Leaf CBD review

Select CBD Review

CBD’s benefits are mostly speculative at this point, with much research still to be done. A big breakthrough was made in 2018, with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clinical trials ultimately leading to the legalization of a CBD-based drug for some forms of epilepsy. However, in other health areas, we only have smaller studies to draw on, and data from CBD users.However, this is still really relevant, especially considering CBD is a legal dietary supplement, and used by up to 15% of US adults. And given that CBD is safe with no abuse potential, you can experiment with confidence. These studies indicate that CBD has anti-anxiety properties, which may aid with generalized and social anxiety. In addition, CBD products are taken more for chronic pain than any other symptoms – as yet, CBD’s pain-killing properties are still unproven.

CBD works as an anti-inflammatory, may ease headaches and migraines, boost cognition, improve focus, reduce nausea, vomiting and stress, and act as a neuroprotective. Moreover, regulating the ECS, as CBD does, appears essential to optimizing mental and physical well-being, given the health variables controlled by the system. As we get stuck into our review of Fresh Leaf CBD vape juices and other products, bear these potential benefits in mind!

Fresh Leaf CBD Cartridges

CBD cartridges are more efficient for vaping than standalone e-liquids. Not to mention, no maintenance or cleaning is required with cartridges. This is ideal if you lead a busy lifestyle, and want to get a hassle-free dose of CBD while on your break.With Fresh Leaf CBD cartridges, the vape juice is sealed within the cartridge, and is ready for immediate use. Simply attach the 510-threaded cartridge onto a compatible 510-threaded battery, and you’re away!

Premium Fresh Leaf cartridges won’t leak in your pocket, so you can keep them on you or in your pocket without issues.The Fresh Leaf CBD Cartridges we stock contain 500mg of CBD and are THC-free. These lab-tested products have no impurities and vitally, no vitamin E acetate. Fresh Leaf has added naturally occurring terpene profiles to their cartridges, which embellishes them with extra positive health effects, and a delicious natural flavor, too!

1 Clementine

Enjoy blasts of pungent citrus with Clementine, a non-psychoactive vape cartridge from Fresh Leaf CBD. The sweet aroma and taste is awesome, but you’re really here for the uplifting and energizing effects of this traditional sativa. Clementine is associated with improving focus and clarity, and is an effective mood-enhancer. The mental and physical boost is best-suited to mornings and early afternoons, especially if seeking a caffeine alternative.

2OG Kush

This is a legendary strain, with a familiar sweet and piney flavor. OG Kush is rich in caryophyllene, myrcene and limonene, three terpenes packed with therapeutic effects. Most users find a hit of OG Kush leaves them feeling happy, relaxed and in a good mood. As a classic indica, you may feel sleepy after a few hits on this vape cartridge. The calming effects may also be good for easing stress and anxiety.

3Blue Dream

This strain is a mixture of Sativa Haze and a blueberry-flavored indica. The result is a delicious, albeit powerfully-tasting vape cartridge, that will leave delightful fruity notes lingering in the mouth.

Blue Dream is loaded with myrcene, making it great for inflammation and pain. But the other terpenes ensure this cartridge has hybrid-like effects, and is beneficial throughout the day. If you want a balance between sedation and stimulation, you’ll find it in Blue Dream from Fresh Leaf CBD.

Fresh Leaf CBD Vape Pen

Excited to try Blue Dream, Clementine or OG Kush? What better way to do so than with Fresh Leaf CBD’s vape pen! The Twist Vape Pen is 510-threaded, comes with a USB charger and operates at a variable voltage between 2V and 4V.If you’re a novice vaper, this device has everything you need to get up and running with CBD cartridges. More experienced users may want some additional flexibility with the voltage. But if you’re looking for a low-cost option that will provide good hits of CBD vapor on-demand, the Twist Vape Pen is a great pick.

CBD Gummies

A whopping 50mg of CBD-isolate is packed into each Fresh Leaf CBD gummy worm. These are available in packs of two or six, bringing the total CBD count to 100mg and 300mg respectively. The gummies have a pleasant mix of natural and artificial flavorings, which excellently recreate the taste of your favorite candy brands. The difference is, there’s no need to feel bad about eating these tasty treats!

What can you expect from a 50mg edible dose? Firstly, remember that no matter how big or small the dose, it takes some time to kick in (around 60 minutes). A 50mg dose is fairly strong, so anticipate a relaxing body buzz, which may be perfect if you’re experiencing sleeping problems. Such a potent Fresh Leaf CBD dosage could also help with chronic pain and anxiety symptoms, while reducing stress.

CBD Tinctures

The Fresh Leaf CBD tincture contains a full-spectrum extract, and MCT oil for a higher bioavailability. Adding MCT oil has become a common tactic of CBD companies to essentially increase potency without including more hemp extract. And it certainly works well with tinctures. The CBD extract is combined with hemp seed oil. This product is vegan-friendly and gluten-free. Tincture oils offer the speediest CBD relief after smoking and vaping. Of course, there are negative health effects with the latter two, hence why so many prefer the safety of tincture oils, even if the effects are a little slower. Take tinctures via sublingual absorption – apply the oil under the tongue, and hold for around a minute while the mucous membranes in the mouth absorb the cannabinoids into the bloodstream.

As well as sublingual absorption, tincture oils are also effective when added to food and drink, and even when applied directly onto the skin, or mixed with other topicals. However, please note that CBD tincture oil is not the same as CBD vape oil. Do not vape Fresh Leaf CBD tinctures under any circumstances.Fresh Leaf CBD Oil is available in 15ml and 30ml bottles. The 15ml bottle contains 250mg CBD (16.1mg/ml), while the 30ml bottles have 500mg (16.1mg/ml) and 1000mg (33.3mg/ml) of extract. Here’s a rough guide as to the effects you’ll experience from these Fresh Leaf CBD dosages.

Strengths

1 250mg/500mg

With 16.1mg of CBD per serving, these tinctures fall in the low to mid-strength bracket, and are recommended if you have no past experience with CBD. The smaller dosage will help bring out the stimulating and focus-enhancing effects CBD has. Low doses are great for mental clarity and improved cognition, which may help if you struggle to remain concentrated at work, or are slacking on your studies due to a short attention span.

Moreover, with this potency, you’ll receive mild pain relief, without the sedation of higher doses. This is nice if you need pain relief during the day, but can’t afford a mental or physical dropoff.

2 1000mg

The stronger 33.3mg serving probably isn’t for CBD beginners. Rather, the 1000mg tincture is best for regular CBD users, who know how the higher dosage affects them, and whether they are comfortable with potential sedation and sleepiness. Indeed, the richer CBD quantity may be ideal for getting a better night’s sleep, and tackling pain symptoms and stress.

CBD Lotion

Take better care of your skin with this CBD lotion from Fresh Leaf CBD. Before you ask, yes, CBD really is good for the skin, and hasn’t been included for the sake of it! The endocannabinoid system (ECS) we mentioned earlier is active in the skin, as it consists of cannabinoid receptors. CBD’s effects can help to limit inflammation and combat skin complaints, and also help to reduce pain. Furthermore, CBD is antibacterial and antifungal. Infused topicals may also have anti-aging effects, as CBD is an antioxidant.

The Fresh Leaf CBD Lotion is organic, non-GMO and vegan-friendly, and was manufactured with no cruelty to animals. A total of 500mg CBD-isolate is packed into this 4oz lotion, in combination with avocado oil, aloe vera liquid, lavender and buckthorn extract. Fresh Leaf CBD suggests its lotion helps to soften skin, ease skin complaints, and soothe aches and pains. The beautiful blend of CBD and essential oils does more to achieve this than a basic CBD topical.

Who is Fresh Leaf CBD?

California is CBD country! Fresh Leaf CBD was set up in 2016 operates out of Orange County, CA, and has an extensive selection of vape juices, gummies and tincture oils, all infused with natural CBD extracts. These products are 100% legal throughout the United States, conforming to federal regulations which put a 0.3% limit on THC levels.Fresh Leaf CBD puts a high priority on making pure and quality products. Of course, all CBD brands say the same, so how can we tell that Fresh Leaf is living up to its billing?

On every single Fresh Leaf product, there is a QR code that provides instant access to product information, such as lab reports. These are both batch and lot coded, which suggests products are tested on a regular basis. It’s a shame these results aren’t available for prospective customers. But most importantly, these tests are being carried out, and are accessible to Fresh Leaf users. Furthermore, Fresh Leaf uses the renowned supercritical CO2 extraction process. This is key for manufacturing pure products, without toxins, heavy metals and other foreign substances. Fresh Leaf CBD products do not contain THC, as you would expect from a brand that uses CBD-isolate extracts.

Does Fresh Leaf CBD get you high?

No, Fresh Leaf products will not get you ‘high’. If you’re wondering why, let’s run through some hemp and cannabis science. First of all, the compound responsible for pretty much the entire marijuana high is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This cannabinoid is highly restricted in hemp-based CBD products to prevent recreational use. Not including it all guarantees no psychoactive effects, and provides many users with much-needed assurances on drug tests.CBD does not produce any psychotropic effects. The cannabinoid has been researched for more than 50 years.

Scientists have consistently demonstrated that CBD is non-intoxicating, and it is potentially non-addictive! CBD and THC are from the same family of compounds (cannabinoids), but have much different effects on the body. This is because they work individually to each other – and in an opposite manner – in the endocannabinoid system (ECS).The upshot is you can enjoy Fresh Leaf CBD in any quantity as often as you like, without experiencing any short or long-term memory impairment, hallucinations, or delusions.

However, please note that CBD tincture oil is not the same as CBD vape oil. Do not vape Fresh Leaf CBD tinctures under any circumstances.Fresh Leaf CBD Oil is available in 15ml and 30ml bottles. The 15ml bottle contains 250mg CBD (16.1mg/ml), while the 30ml bottles have 500mg (16.1mg/ml) and 1000mg (33.3mg/ml) of extract. Here’s a rough guide as to the effects you’ll experience from these Fresh Leaf CBD dosages.

Strengths

1 250mg/500mg

With 16.1mg of CBD per serving, these tinctures fall in the low to mid-strength bracket, and are recommended if you have no past experience with CBD. The smaller dosage will help bring out the stimulating and focus-enhancing effects CBD has. Low doses are great for mental clarity and improved cognition, which may help if you struggle to remain concentrated at work, or are slacking on your studies due to a short attention span.

Moreover, with this potency, you’ll receive mild pain relief, without the sedation of higher doses. This is nice if you need pain relief during the day, but can’t afford a mental or physical dropoff.

2 1000mg

The stronger 33.3mg serving probably isn’t for CBD beginners. Rather, the 1000mg tincture is best for regular CBD users, who know how the higher dosage affects them, and whether they are comfortable with potential sedation and sleepiness. Indeed, the richer CBD quantity may be ideal for getting a better night’s sleep, and tackling pain symptoms and stress.

CBD Lotion

Take better care of your skin with this CBD lotion from Fresh Leaf CBD. Before you ask, yes, CBD really is good for the skin, and hasn’t been included for the sake of it! The endocannabinoid system (ECS) we mentioned earlier is active in the skin, as it consists of cannabinoid receptors. CBD’s effects can help to limit inflammation and combat skin complaints, and also help to reduce pain. Furthermore, CBD is antibacterial and antifungal. Infused topicals may also have anti-aging effects, as CBD is an antioxidant.

The Fresh Leaf CBD Lotion is organic, non-GMO and vegan-friendly, and was manufactured with no cruelty to animals. A total of 500mg CBD-isolate is packed into this 4oz lotion, in combination with avocado oil, aloe vera liquid, lavender and buckthorn extract. Fresh Leaf CBD suggests its lotion helps to soften skin, ease skin complaints, and soothe aches and pains. The beautiful blend of CBD and essential oils does more to achieve this than a basic CBD topical.

Who is Fresh Leaf CBD?

California is CBD country! Fresh Leaf CBD was set up in 2016 operates out of Orange County, CA, and has an extensive selection of vape juices, gummies and tincture oils, all infused with natural CBD extracts. These products are 100% legal throughout the United States, conforming to federal regulations which put a 0.3% limit on THC levels.Fresh Leaf CBD puts a high priority on making pure and quality products. Of course, all CBD brands say the same, so how can we tell that Fresh Leaf is living up to its billing?

On every single Fresh Leaf product, there is a QR code that provides instant access to product information, such as lab reports. These are both batch and lot coded, which suggests products are tested on a regular basis. It’s a shame these results aren’t available for prospective customers. But most importantly, these tests are being carried out, and are accessible to Fresh Leaf users. Furthermore, Fresh Leaf uses the renowned supercritical CO2 extraction process. This is key for manufacturing pure products, without toxins, heavy metals and other foreign substances. Fresh Leaf CBD products do not contain THC, as you would expect from a brand that uses CBD-isolate extracts.

Does Fresh Leaf CBD get you high?

No, Fresh Leaf products will not get you ‘high’. If you’re wondering why, let’s run through some hemp and cannabis science. First of all, the compound responsible for pretty much the entire marijuana high is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This cannabinoid is highly restricted in hemp-based CBD products to prevent recreational use. Not including it all guarantees no psychoactive effects, and provides many users with much-needed assurances on drug tests.CBD does not produce any psychotropic effects. The cannabinoid has been researched for more than 50 years.

Scientists have consistently demonstrated that CBD is non-intoxicating, and it is potentially non-addictive! CBD and THC are from the same family of compounds (cannabinoids), but have much different effects on the body. This is because they work individually to each other – and in an opposite manner – in the endocannabinoid system (ECS).The upshot is you can enjoy Fresh Leaf CBD in any quantity as often as you like, without experiencing any short or long-term memory impairment, hallucinations, or delusions.

Diamond CBD’s Best Products of 2019

Diamond

CBD’s

Best Products of 2019

Diamond CBD are a successful hemp-based CBD brand, and one that we are proud to stock at CBDVapeJuice.net. They have a presence in just about all areas of the CBD market, including infused edibles, tincture oils and topicals.In this Diamond CBD review, we’ll be discussing the company’s ideology, and what’s special about their products, before diving right in with a look at their best-sellers. Keep reading until the end of the post for a Diamond CBD coupon code, our gift to you for checking out our blog!In this article, we’ll discuss the causes of EVALI, and why experts are so confident that illegal vape juices are behind the outbreak. And we’ll also talk about the steps you can take to stay safe when vaping.

Who are Diamond CBD?

Diamond CBD are always at the forefront of CBD innovation, with their teams of researchers and doctors always conjuring up new ways to get more from hemp. They have a gigantic range of products, and have longevity in the CBD industry, an achievement for a market still in its formative years. Diamond CBD meet all federal regulations with their products, which contain less than 0.3% THC and only industrial hemp. The company is based in Florida, but their products are sold all over America and, indeed, on this very site!

The manufacturing process

For starters, all Diamond CBD hemp is organically-grown and not genetically modified. The company gets hemp from Scandinavia (Northern Europe is a classic source of hemp), and also farms in Kentucky and Colorado. Now that industrial hemp can be legally cultivated the United States, it’s become easier for brands to source their hemp domestically. All ingredients are tested before being used, to ensure they meet Diamond CBD’s sky-high standards. Only the highest quality hemp meets the grade for extraction. This approach is the best way of taking hemp extracts. The relatively low temperatures involved allow for maximum extraction, with no lost compounds. Supercritical CO2 extraction is a solvent-free process.

Once complete, Diamond CBD products are sent off to an independent laboratory for certification. This isn’t because they doubt their methodology, but because third-party approval shows they are open and transparent about their practices. As well as checking for cannabinoids, lab tests scan for other therapeutic compounds, and the presence of toxins, heavy metals, microbes and residual solvents.  This extensive and thorough approach, with regular quality checks, is the cornerstone to Diamond CBD’s success as a brand, and their emergence as one of America’s most-notable and most-trusted CBD manufacturers. 

Diamond CBD Review

Now we know about their ethics and what goes into making their products, let’s learn a bit more about the products Diamond CBD have to offer. We’ll discuss the specific qualities of each product, and their pros and cons in regard to CBD’s potential benefits. CBD is non-intoxicating and believed to have a myriad of therapeutic uses. That said, experts are still in the early phases of CBD research, and little can be stated with certainty about the compound. Federally legal, hemp-based CBD products are not medicines. All Diamond CBD products are sold as dietary supplements. CBD functions mostly in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Found by Israeli scientists in the 1990s, the ECS helps manage pain perception, mood, immune system health, appetite, cognition, the body’s sleep-wake cycle and more. Many people are finding CBD an effective replacement to prescribed drugs, and that it has fewer side effects. The World Health Organization has clarified that CBD has no addictive potential. 

Diamond CBD Gummy Bears

CBD edible products all deliver extended effects, and Diamond CBD’s offerings are no exception. The brand stocks a wide selection of gummy bears, with varying amounts of CBD. Gummies are good for discreet CBD use, perhaps when in a crowded area or at work. Bears and worms can also be hidden in among regular gummies with ease. Not to mention, CBD users always know how much they’re getting, as each gummy has the same dose of CBD.

Gummy bear – and other edible – effects are always gradual rather than instant. The upshot of having to wait up to an hour is that the benefits continue for much longer than with faster acting products (such as CBD cigarettes, e-liquids and oils). The longer effects are desirable if you only have chance to dose once. They’re also perfect if you want active CBD in your system at all times, but don’t require an intense burst. Chronic arthritis and stress symptoms tend well to edibles, as it’s easier and more economical to keep your CBD levels topped up.

A steady supply of a low CBD dose also has its advantages. Small, stimulating quantities of CBD are great for lengthy study sessions, or for ensuring you stay productive at work.

Regular gummies

The standard CBD gummies pouch is our cheapest Diamond CBD product at CBDVapeJuice.net. These CBD-infused gummies have a total of 30mg CBD, a nice introductory dosage for first-timers, and if you like low quantities. On the packaging, they recommend taking a maximum of 1 to 2 gummies in any six-hour period.

Next up is the 75mg CBD gummy pouch. These contain a natural, CBD-isolate extract and have no THC. They’re available in all your favorite flavors, such as Watermelon Slices, Ocean Gummies and Rainbow Bites. This slightly stronger dosage is still not overpowering, but should bring suitable relief to moderate symptoms. The number of servings and dosage-per-gummy varies from product to product, but is clearly stated on the packaging. 

Relax gummies

Want more relaxation from your CBD? The Relax line from Diamond CBD is calling for you! With 100mg of CBD per pack, you’ll be getting more sedation, more pain relief, and less anxiety and stress – a delightful combination! These ‘Extreme Strength’ gummies come in five types right now: Ocean Gummies, Rainbow Bites, Watermelon Slices, Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms.These stronger CBD-isolate gummies are perhaps not for new users. However, if you’re in severe pain or want a product for sleep purposes, the higher strength fits the bill. As with all gummies, waiting at least a couple of hours between doses will give you a chance to assess the effects, and decide whether another is needed!

Diamond CBD Oil

Experience the complete hemp effect with Diamond CBD’s full-spectrum tincture oil. This unflavored product is multi-purpose. You could consume sublingually, in the regular tincture way or add it to an e-liquid – this is a rare example of an “oil” product that is suitable for vaping. Diamond CBD Oil also works on food, mixed into a bottle of water, combined with topical products, or even when applied directly to the skin. Diamond CBD pride themselves on having a stronger and more effective CBD extract than their competitors. Their tincture oils are available in eight potencies: 25mg, 250mg, 350mg, 450mg, 550mg, 750mg, 1000mg and 1500mg. Each bottle contains 30ml of liquid, with the dropper holding up to 1ml at a time. Diamond CBD Oil is mixed with propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG).

Sublingual absorption is how most CBD users take tinctures. This method is the healthiest way to take CBD quickly, only bettered in speed of delivery by vaping and smoking. However, under-the-tongue consumption is more accessible, and doesn’t come with negative health consequences.Relax CBD Oils: As with the gummies, Diamond CBD also has a Relax line for this tincture/e-liquid product. The higher strengths are more relaxing, and may induce sedation. You may want to avoid driving or operating heavy machinery after a high CBD dose. But in general, don’t fret about taking rich quantities of CBD. Research suggests the body easily tolerates large CBD dosages, and does not trigger addiction or dependence.

Diamond CBD: Biotech CBD Cream

The Biotech CBD Cream from Diamond CBD is a topical product infused with industrial hemp extract, and other ingredients beneficial for skin. These include: aloe vera gel, tea tree oil and menthol. The menthol is particularly useful, giving this cream a cool, refreshing effect when applied, which works a treat for cold therapy. CBD creams are great for localized pain relief, and work standalone or in tandem with other CBD products. Topical products are directly effective, activating cannabinoid and vanilloid receptors in the affected region to reduce symptoms.

This pain cream comes in a 5oz (140g) pot, and is available in four strengths: 250mg, 500mg, 1000mg and 1500mg. These potencies are really strong for a CBD topical – the 1000mg and 1500mg products especially are recommended only for severe discomfort and inflammatory issues. CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects may make the Biotech cream effective for psoriasis, and acne, and other skin complaints with irritable symptoms. This antioxidant-rich cream may have anti-aging potential, with antioxidants reducing the destructive impact of free radicals.

Taking Diamond CBD for pain

Studies are coming out regularly about the properties of CBD. Diamond CBD products may only be sold as dietary supplements, but it’s no secret that many people take them for pain, and claim to get fantastic results. This is reflected in large surveys on legal CBD use, with pain always registering ahead of every other ailment. That considered, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is yet to approve CBD products for pain, and hasn’t yet even clinically trialled the substance. The existing research is intriguing. Studies show pain is regulated by the ECS – CB1 receptors control pain perception while CB2 receptors regulates immune system response. CBD has been shown to interact within other pain-regulating networks, including vanilloid receptors, which are found in the skin.

CBD has significant appeal as an alternative, plant-based pain remedy, given the problematic nature of synthetic opioid painkillers. Unlike opioids, Diamond CBD products are non-addictive, not littered with side effects and don’t cause a tolerance buildup. Some people have found CBD helpful in cutting down on opioid use, with others managing to come off their painkillers altogether. CBD’s possible anti-addictive properties may also help with weaning off opioids.You should never change your treatment plan without consulting a medical professional. But it may be worth asking your doctor or physician about trying CBD products, such as Diamond CBD Oil or the Biotech CBD cream.

Diamond CBD and drug tests

Drug test queries are extremely common in regard to CBD. The hemp plant’s close link to cannabis makes many worried that taking CBD could trigger a failed test. However, these concerns are nearly always blown out of proportion.For one, tests don’t screen for CBD at all – the only cannabis substance they check for is THC. That’s because CBD is non-psychoactive, while THC will get you high. Many Diamond CBD products have CBD-isolate extracts, which are also THC-free. Meanwhile, full-spectrum products can legally have as much as 0.3% THC, as per the 2018 Farm Bill. This is a really, really low amount of THC, and is very unlikely to cause issues. However, regular, high intake of these products will lead to some level of THC buildup in the blood. If you do have reservations and want total peace of mind, then the simple solution is to stick with Diamond’s CBD-isolate products.

The Best CBD Joints For Sale in 2019

Non-psychoactive hemp flower joints are the latest big thing in the cannabidiol (CBD) market. Pre-rolled CBD joints provide a convenient and authentic smoking experience, and are well-suited to bringing out the best of CBD’s therapeutic effects. 

On the surface, CBD joints look just like regular cannabis joints – both are packed with pungent, green flower. The key difference is that CBD joints contain flower with high amounts of CBD, and just a tiny level of THC. This cannabinoid composition explains why CBD joints don’t induce a psychoactive ‘stoned’ effect. 

In this detailed guide to CBD joints, we’ll clear up some frequently asked questions (FAQs), and go over the perks of these products, the variety of CBD joints online, and some possible reasons for taking them. We’ll be focussing on pre-rolled CBD joints, with a view on how to roll your own, too! 

Are CBD joints legal?

In one word, yes! CBD joints are legal in all 50 US States and the District of Columbia. Despite technically being a form of cannabis, the CBD-rich flower used in these joints is classified as industrial hemp. The federal government now allows industrial hemp products with less than 0.3% THC, following the successful passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.  

Reasons for smoking CBD joints

As CBD products in general are a recent addition to the United States market, analysts are still learning about why people are purchasing CBD products, including joints. Firstly, pre-rolled joints appeal mostly to those who already smoke, and aren’t worried about the negative health effects of smoking. Joints are also attractive to marijuana smokers seeking a non-intoxicating alternative that keeps everything else the same. 

In terms of self-medication, smoking hemp and CBD isn’t as contradictory as it may seem. Indeed, the inhalation route of administration is remarkably efficient. If you smoke high-CBD hemp flower, the lungs begin absorbing CBD into the bloodstream just seconds after consumption. This rapid activation time beats out nearly all other CBD products, and particularly edibles, capsules and syrups. 

Potential physical benefits

The data suggests that pain is the leading reason for CBD use. The fast effects delivered by CBD joints may be ideal for certain conditions typified by pain, especially those with acute symptoms. 

Research shows that CBD and other beneficial hemp components exert anti-inflammatory effects, as well as wider immune system-regulating properties. Promoting healthy and balanced immune system activity is essential for staving off numerous illnesses, such as arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome and psoriasis. 

Scientists studying cannabinoid activity in the body, and specifically the endocannabinoid system (ECS), are making some interesting discoveries. Increasingly, it appears that ECS dysregulation contributes to fibromyalgia, migraines and perhaps other conditions, too. CBD is touted as a great way of improving ECS function, as it exhibits modulatory effects in the system. 

Potential mental benefits 

CBD joints have several proposed mental benefits. Research on CBD and anxiety is really exciting. Few illnesses have gotten so much attention with CBD, and studies indicate that CBD can reduce social anxiety symptoms. Regulating activity of GABA neurotransmitters, which in turn regulate anxiety, may explain CBD’s anti-anxiety properties. Furthermore, the efficient onset of effects is ideal for managing a disorder which triggers such sudden and intense symptoms. CBD joints could help make panic and anxiety attacks a thing of the past. 

CBD may have a bright future in depression treatment, too, and people are already self-medicating symptoms with CBD products. Research is just getting started, but early studies associate CBD’s antidepressant effects with reduced brain inflammation and increased anandamide levels. In addition, CBD joints also have short-term benefits, working to lift mood and motivation in minutes. 

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is another field of intrigue for scientists. So far, it’s unclear whether CBD is effective as a solo remedy, or whether a cannabis product with some amount of THC is more useful. 

Potential supplemental benefits 

Surveys suggest that most CBD users are self-medicating, but up to 40 percent enjoy products as supplements. CBD is certainly a unique supplement, given its benefits for the ECS. Cannabinoids are pretty much the only compounds that can regulate the ECS, a system that watches over our mental and physical health. 

ECS supplements are rarely discussed, as the system stayed hidden in plain sight until the 1990s. But the importance of a balanced ECS is steadily coming to the attention of doctors, nutritionists and holistic health experts. And there is no better cannabinoid to take than CBD.

Alternative to high-THC flower 

In recent times, marijuana has gotten stronger and stronger. Now, because of recreational legalization in many states, it’s a lot more accessible, too. But what about the ramifications of higher THC concentrations, and more lopsided THC to CBD ratios in strains? The effects of cannabinoids on the brain are not crystal clear, but it is apparent that CBD and THC have polarizing, yet complementing effects.

However, high-THC strains without the CBD risk causing long-term neurological issues. Some evidence shows THC has a neurotoxic action on the hippocampus, a central brain region that manages memory consolidation and motivation. In contrast, CBD exerts neuroprotective effects on the hippocampus, and even stimulates brain cell growth.

What does this mean for regular high-THC cannabis users? It’s possible that mixing up your consumption with some CBD joints now and again may protect from THC’s adverse effects. A 2018 study highlighted how CBD treatment made positive structural changes to the hippocampus. Fascinatingly, the beneficial effects were even greater among the heaviest users.

With CBD joints, you can still have a smoke when you want, while protecting the brain, and even lowering cannabis tolerance. This means you won’t need as much THC weed to get high! 

Are CBD joints addictive?

No, CBD joints are not addictive. You may be wondering why, since regular smoking is addictive. The difference is that tobacco cigarettes contain nicotine, an incredibly addictive chemical that over time causes physical dependence. CBD does not have addictive properties, and nor do any of the other compounds in legal CBD joints. 

Therefore, you can smoke CBD when you like, and as much as you like, without worrying about getting hooked. CBD has no abuse potential – take that from the World Health Organization! As it happens, the debate on CBD and addiction is whether the cannabinoid has anti-addictive properties. 

A small trial looking at giving CBD inhalers to tobacco smokers found that CBD reduced overall cigarette intake. One study does not equate to undisputed clinical evidence, but it’s a clear sign that CBD – and products like CBD joints aren’t going to cause addiction.

Pre-rolled CBD joints 

Pre-rolls are all about making your life easier! Hemp and cannabis connoisseurs may love the process of skinning a perfect joint, but others simply don’t have the knowhow, patience or desire to learn! 

With pre-rolled CBD joints, whether it’s first thing in the morning, or last thing at night, you can always spark up in a matter of seconds. Moreover, CBD joints are tightly-packed and burn evenly, the optimum conditions for a smooth smoke. 

CBD and Kief Infused Pre-Rolls 

These CBD joints from the CBD Genesis collection are more potent than regular joints, thanks to the addition of kief. Consider kief a highly-potent extract, comprised from the CBD-rich, resinous trichomes of the hemp plant. Kief is dusty, and when sprinkled into a CBD joint, ups the strength considerably. This means you can take a much higher CBD dose, while barely increasing the quantity of plant matter smoked, hence limiting the health risks. 

The CBD Genesis CBD and Kief-Infused Pre-Roll range consists of four flavors, which we’ll describe in detail. All joints are rolled with RAW cones and tips, and come in air-tight containers. Joints are sold separately and by the dozen. 

Grape: This joint oozes a gorgeous grape aroma, detectable as soon as you unscrew the lid. The flavor is milder than the scent, but this leads to a pleasant smoke with no coughing! The Grape CBD Genesis Joint has a mighty 25% CBD, and is great for when you need stronger relief.

The rich dose may help with anxiety and stress, while helping to reduce pain, and calm headaches and migraines. Whatever your ailment, the quick response time from joints makes for speedy symptom relief. 

Strawberry: Get fruity with the Strawberry Joint from CBD Genesis. Fruit-flavored strains are often punchy, and Strawberry is no aroma, with a strong aroma that translates into terrific taste. 

With the delightful flavor, you’ll love smoking Strawberry on a nice summer’s day. CBD’s calming properties are always desirable, and what better way to get them than with this non-psychoactive CBD Genesis Joint.

Coconut: Allow the Coconut kief-infused joint to transport you to the beach on a beautiful tropical island! Sadly, we can’t physically take you there, but this flavorful joint is the next best thing! The light and refreshing coconut will tingle on your taste buds, and makes for a great smoke, whether you’re having a quick one, or have the time to kick back and chill. 

Strawberry Lemonade: This is another fruity joint, with the lemon citrus slightly more noticeable than the strawberry. As with all CBD Genesis kief-infused joints, Strawberry Lemonade smokes well, and boasts an impressive 25% CBD and 17% hemp kief content.

This potent joint helps not just with relaxation and stress relief. It’s also a fine solution for concentration issues, low motivation and anxiety. And needless to add, this joint has less than 0.3% THC. 

CBD Cigarettes from Plain Jane 

CBD Cigarettes By Plain Jane CBDWhile not strictly a joint, CBD cigarettes are still worth mentioning in this review, as they contain the same ingredients and are also smoked. Plain Jane hemp cigarettes are professionally rolled with rice paper and a filter, and smoke just like a standard cigarette. Every CBD cigarette has a set 72mg of CBD (with 10 cigarettes to a pack) This is a substantial serving that promotes CBD’s sedative effects. 

Original: The Original cigarettes are the standout Plain Jane product. Amazingly, despite being infused with high-CBD hemp flower, they are pretty much aroma-free. That means when you smoke Plain Janes, they don’t create the super strong smell that reminds just about everyone of marijuana! This is possible by removing the terpenes from the hemp flower. Subsequently, these cigarettes may slightly limit hemp’s effects, but if discretion is in order, it’s a trade-off you may be willing to accept. 

Full Flavor: These Plain Jane cigarettes are essentially the same as a CBD joint, except cigarettes are slimmer and hold less plant material. These cigarettes contain hemp flower with the terpenes, so get ready for the pungent wafts of hemp when you light up. 

Roll your own joints with CBD Genesis flower 

We have CBD joints for sale, but we know some of you prefer rolling your own. And with CBD Genesis hemp flower, you can do just that. We have more than 15 top-shelf CBD strains in stock, and a mixture of sativas, indicas and hybrids. 

With flower, you can roll joints to your liking, and even combine your favorite strains for a blend of effects. Here’s what to expect from indica, sativa and hybrid CBD buds

Indica strains

These flowers are the most calming, with lots of terpenes that encourage relaxation and relief. The soothing and tranquilizing effects are appropriate for relieving aches and pains, combating stress and taking the edge off anxiety. CBD-rich indicas are superb evening strains, when you want full-body relaxation, and the body buzz that comes from the ‘couchlock’ effect.

CBD Genesis indicas: Catatonic, Tropic Thunder, Green House Bubba Kush 

Sativa strains 

The polar opposite, sativas produce potent stimulating effects, and provide an energy burst when you need it most. Packed with cerebral terpenes, sativas help clear the mind of brain fog and boost mental clarity, putting you in the ideal mental state for focus and concentration. Sativa strains often have mood-enhancing effects, and may help if you have anxiety. That said, some find the stimulating properties a little too much for anxiety – that’s why it’s important to experiment.

CBD Genesis sativas: Emerald Star, Lifter, Sweet Tooth, Sour Patch, Green House Electra

Hybrid strains

No prizes for guessing that hybrids are in the middle of sativas and indicas. Flower effects are on a spectrum, not divided precisely into two categories, and strains that have a mix of energizing and relaxing effects are classed as hybrids. This could mean mental stimulation, with a calming physical effect, or a steady and calm mind, with lots of physical energy. All hemp flower strains have different terpene compositions, and this explains the nuances in effects. 

CBD Genesis hybrids: Super Haze, Pineapple Haze, Cool Mint, Electra, DC Hemp, Berry Wine, AC Diesel, Tsunami, Green House Lifter 

How to roll a CBD joint 

Rolling a joint is like riding a bike – once you know how, you’ll never forget! It’s up to you how complex you want to make the rolling process. Enthusiasts may like rolling crafty cross joints or extended L joints, but we’ll keep it simple with a classic cone-shaped joint. With these, you can pack in more hemp than in a regular effect, which makes for a bigger CBD dose.

Step 1: grab essentials and grind the flower 

Hemp flower is nice and dry, so is easy to grind finely, which is key for a fine smoke! Get a grinder – ideally one with a kief collector – and grind up as much flower as you want to put in your joint. 

Next, make a crutch (mouthpiece) using card or actual roach paper – any paper that folds easily while remaining firm will work. You can get away without adding a mouthpiece, although having one is well worth it, as it cools the smoke down a little before you inhale, stops flower from going into your mouth and gives the joint more sturdiness.

Step 2: pack the joint with flower 

Take the folded mouthpiece, and position it at the end of the paper. Evenly spread your ground-up CBD hemp flower across the paper. The actual amount you use doesn’t matter, just ensure it’s spread consistently and without clumps. If you want to increase the potency with kief, now is the time to add it in. As for the best papers, we suggest using hemp papers, as these have fewer chemicals than other papers, and especially flavored papers. 

Pinch both ends of the paper together and pack the flower down, making sure it stays even. It can take a little practice to roll the paper between your fingers, but it’s vital you get this step right. Once happy that the joint has a smooth and even feel, it’s time to complete the roll. 

Step 3: roll, seal and smoke! 

This is by far the most fiddly step, and the part that catches a lot of people out. To finish the roll, you’ll need to glue the paper together, as tightly as possible. Tuck the unglued side of the paper under the glued side. Lick a small section of the glued paper toward the mouthpiece, and tack it down. This begins to give the joint some structure, and you can steadily lick and stick more of the paper down, moving away from the mouthpiece. It’s made a little easier by the fact that the paper begins to naturally roll around, creating the desired cone shape. 

Unless you’ve rolled a really fat joint, you’ll probably have a little paper left over at the end. Take a toothpick or paper clip and pack down the flower as much as possible – this is just a finishing touch for a tighter joint. Then seal the joint by twisting the end of the paper over, and smoke it at your leisure! 

Practice makes perfect and the art of joint rolling can take some time to learn. But rolling your own is a great way to personalize your CBD experience, and sample all the strains in the CBD Genesis range to their full effect. 

Where to buy CBD joints online

Are CBD joints bad for your lungs?

No form of smoking is healthy or safe. Breathing hot carcinogenic smoke deeply into your lungs is riskier than not doing so at all. However, it’s important to gain some perspective. CBD-rich hemp nugs – and therefore CBD joints – are non-addictive, so it’s easy to stop if you decide you don’t want to smoke any more. This isn’t the case with tobacco, where nicotine addiction can make it extremely difficult to quit smoking. 

Furthermore, our CBD joints and flower do not contain any additional ingredients, and are made without pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers and other chemicals. This alone makes them cleaner and purer than tobacco cigarettes, which are notorious for having other ingredients – to increase the headrush, improve flavor and so on – which increase the dangers. 

Few studies have been done on the long-term effects of cannabis and hemp smoking, although some research suggests there are fewer risks than with smoking tobacco. We’ll hopefully get a more complete picture in the coming years. Also, while tobacco smokers may get through 20 cigarettes a day or more, hemp smokers tend to smoke much less plant material. And clearly, less overall smoking reduces the risks somewhat.

Non-smokers shouldn’t feel compelled to start smoking CBD-rich hemp, as there are many other CBD products available. Vaping, for instance, is an effective way of minimizing the risks. But if you already smoke cigarettes or cannabis with THC, hemp flower is a less dangerous option.

Final thoughts 

If you’re a hemp and cannabis traditionalist, you’ll love CBD joints. They’ll remind you of the regular cannabis scene, where you can select from many strains and a list of flavors and effects, and then sit back and enjoy your smoke. CBD joints are about relaxation, from the act of chilling out and smoking, to the actual effects. Sure, these products aren’t for everyone, but if you want or need near-instant relief, and seek all of hemp’s benefits, pre-rolled CBD joints are for you!

Restart CBD: The Best Hemp Flower, Cigarettes and Topicals of 2019

Restart CBD is a female-led CBD business based out of Austin, Texas, and run by the Torabi sisters. The idea for the company came in 2016, when co-founder Shayda Torabi opted for cannabidiol (CBD) treatment over surgery. Shayda had been hit by a car as a pedestrian, suffered a fractured pelvis, sacrum and nose, and was getting poor results from steroids.

She was enjoying benefits from CBD, but was frustrated about the poor product options available in Austin at the time – hence the idea for Restart CBD! After a few months of extensive research, Shayda and her sister Sydney set up Restart CBD in Austin, and the rest is history! 

The brand’s products are created with premium hemp grown at organic farms, and extracted via the supercritical CO2 process. This ensures consistency and quality, and independent certificates of analysis for all Restart CBD products are freely accessible on the company’s website for all to read. This transparency is really encouraging, and enables customers to buy with confidence. 

This Restart CBD review will check out all the hemp flower strains in the brand’s collection, in addition to Restart’s filtered CBD cigarettes, vape products and topicals. Keep your eyes peeled for the special CBDVapeJuice.net discount code enclosed in this blog post for 10% off your next purchase! 

Restart CBD’s hemp flower collection

CBD hemp flower has plenty of similarities with cannabis. Indeed, it’s essentially the same except for one key difference: CBD buds are non-psychoactive! These products meet federal law requirements, with less than 0.3% total THC content. CBD flower strains are not just rich in CBD, but contain a myriad of other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. All these compounds work together to enhance the effects, like ingredients in a meal! 

Restart CBD’s hemp flower is homegrown in the United States, and cultivated without pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. All strains are harvested by hand, indicating a personalized approach. Hemp flower is commonly smoked, but will produce similar effects when vaporized in a dry herb device. 

Bubba Kush

As a kush strain, Bubba Kush is all about relaxation, as a highly-potent indica. This Oregonian strain boasts a mighty 18% CBD, less than 0.3% THC and has a classic, sweet hashish taste. Bubba Kush’s calming effects are perfect for suppressing stress, promoting sleep and for getting you into chill-out mode after a busy day.

The sedative effects of this high-strength flower may catch you by surprise at first. We suggest saving Bubba Kush for late afternoons and evenings, when you can afford to shut up shop for the rest of the day and sink into your sofa! 

CBD Star

This is a milder indica-dominant strain, offering more measured relaxation, with 13.24% CBD (132mg per gram). CBD Star has a gorgeous aroma of incense and musk. As for the effects, some users find these buds help with pain relief, and bring about physical and mental calm. 

Like all indicas, CBD Star is best reserved or the second half of the day, when you want a strain that’s more sedative than stimulating. The slightly lower CBD content makes this hemp flower more affordable. CBD Star is also cultivated in Oregon.

Hawaiian Haze

Give your next CBD experience a tropical twist with Hawaiian Haze. This sativa-dominant strain contains more than 13% CBD, and will help perk up your mood and assist with your overall mental wellbeing. This strain has a sharp, fruity and punchy aroma, and a smooth, floral flavor.

As a sativa flower, Hawaiian Haze works best in the early part of the day, especially if you struggle to hit the ground running! Think of these buds as a good alternative or complement to your morning caffeine hit. Hawaiian Haze may also combat any brain fog, enhance mental clarity and push back against energy-sapping fatigue.

Lifter

The clue is in the name! Lifter is a classic, pick-me-up sativa, with a hefty 14.26% CBD and an array of stimulating terpenes. Lifter has a complex taste, combining sweet funk with spiciness, with a dash of lemon citrus to cap things off. These buds have a nice relaxing effect that is suited to any time of day, but are also ideal for boosting concentration and focus.

Therefore, if you’re a student with a stack of work to get through, or an office worker with a repetitive job, Lifter can help lighten the load! Furthermore, this pain may dissolve any aches and pains that have adverse effects to physical health and state of mind, too. 

Norfolk Pine

This premium CBD flower is a limited edition Oregonian strain, with more than 15% CBD and less than 0.1% THC. A popular addition to the Restart CBD collection, Norfolk Pine is fruity and laden with sticky and CBD-rich trichomes. These pretty buds are a mish-mash of deep green hues, and orange and purple pistils. 

Restart CBD doesn’t go into detail about Norfolk Pine’s effects. But with the higher CBD count, perhaps anticipate some extra relaxation. The lower THC concentration is also good if you’re a keen CBD flower user, but always have drug test concerns at the back of your mind. 

Sour Space Candy

A soury strain for relaxation and anxiety relief, Sour Space Candy is an Oregonian flower with almost 13% CBD. These nugs have a lemony aroma that’s reflected in the taste, alongside delicious notes of sour candy. 

This strain has calming effects, but will leave you feeling mentally lively, and in good spirits to take on the challenges of the day. Whether it’s early in the morning, or mid-to-late afternoon, it’s always the right time for a joint or bowl of Sour Space Candy for improved mood and motivation.

Suver Haze

This is a super, soothing strain, rich in relaxing properties, and the ideal indica for getting to sleep after a heavy day. Suver Haze contains a rock solid 13.18% CBD, and has a traditional lemongrass, tropical and piney flavor. The beautiful aroma and taste will have you coming back for more! 

The physically and mentally relaxing effects of Suver Haze are not just great for sleep, but for stress relief, anxiety, pain and inflammation, too. Restart CBD has picked out an excellent indica, with all the sedative effects you could ask for, but with none of the psychoactivity. 

Filtered CBD Cigarettes

Don’t like rolling your own, and just want to spark up at a moment’s notice? Then filtered CBD cigarettes will be much more to your liking than loose hemp flower. Restart CBD’s hemp cigarettes produce milder effects, since they contain leafy shake rather than the buds. This equates to an overall CBD content between 6 and 10%, with 0.85g of shake per cigarette. 

These CBD cigarettes do generate a hemp-like aroma when smoked, but are nicotine-free therefore non-addictive! Restart CBD sell CBD cigarettes individually, and in packs of seven or 20. The professional manufacturing makes for a smooth and steady smoke, just as with regular cigarettes.

CBD Vape Cartridges 

Restart CBD has a wide selection of 510-threaded vape cartridges, which are compatible with any standard vape battery. All e-liquids consist of a premium-grade, high-potency hemp extract, and don’t contain any chemicals, additives or nicotine. Restart CBD vape cartridges don’t have any propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG), common e-liquid carrier oils. 

These uncut, unrefined wax vape cartridges are refillable, and made from glass pyrex. Restart CBD has all products lab-tested before going on sale. We’ve picked out a sativa, indica, and a hybrid to showcase here. 

Durban Sour (Sativa)

This is a sweet, sour and citrusy vape cartridge, with a myriad of uplifting terpenes. Durban Sour has potent, energizing effects, and is available in two main strengths: 300mg/ml and 600mg/ml. You could use this cartridge as a mood-enhancer, to get motivated, enhance focus or blast away any fatigue. Durban Sour is versatile, and an excellent morning and afternoon vape cartridge. 

OG Kush (Indica)

You’ll no doubt have come across OG Kush if you’re familiar with cannabis, and this is the non-intoxicating version! The name refers to the terpenes present in this cartridge, which are that of the classic indica strain. Restart CBD’s OG Kush vape cartridge is a superb stress-buster and anxiety queller, and has intriguing potential pain management benefits. 

Super Lemon Haze (Hybrid)

Hybrids pull the best from sativas and indicas, delivering dependable effects suitable at any time of day. The Super Lemon Haze CBD vape cartridge is no different, providing mental tranquility and physical relief. The all-round mix is neither too energizing nor too sleep-inducing. What’s more, Super Lemon Haze has a lovely lemon citrus flavor that’s really tasty on the tongue. 

CBD Topicals 

Topical products bring out another side to CBD, and have little in common with smokable hemp flower and vape cartridges. Even though the general benefits are similar, CBD topicals are all about the skin, and producing localized effects. Creams, serums and other skin-based products are getting more recognized, and Restart CBD manufactures several exciting, all-natural topicals. 

Topical Pain Cream

Restart’s 4oz topical pain cream is made with a full-spectrum hemp extract, and contains a mighty 1000mg of CBD. Avocado oil, lavender, arnica, tea tree oil, rosemary and other natural ingredients are present, embellishing CBD’s effect. This cream is free of phthalates, petrolatum, parabens and sulfates.

Such a high-strength product is terrific for powerful localized relief from pain and discomfort. Moreover, the variety of anti-inflammatory ingredients could aid with skin complaints, and general redness and itchiness. Some ingredients used have antiseptic and antibacterial properties, too. Not to mention, the high antioxidant count may potentially give this cream an anti-aging effect.

Face Serum

CBD has a moisturizing and nourishing role to play on the skin, effects that are only increased with similarly beneficial ingredients. Restart CBD has found the perfect combination with its face serum, a revitalizing oil containing 600mg of 99%+ pure CBD extract, jojoba oil, argan oil, rosehip oil, carrot seed oil, geranium oil and vitamin E. 

These ingredients offer anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, sebum-balancing and hydrating effects for the skin. Many of the oils are considered healing oils, and may help repair damaged skin. And rosehip oil, for instance, is effective at reducing dark spots and scarring. This is a powerful face serum, bringing together some amazing, naturally-sourced compounds from the plant kingdom, and it shows how CBD topicals are better when they are about more than just CBD! 

CBD Soaking Salts

CBD doesn’t have to be applied directly to the skin – soaking salts work just as well. Great for cleansing and healing the skin, and extracting toxins, Restart CBD’s recovery soaking salts combines 300mg of pure CBD-isolate with a whole host of essential oils, including bergamot, spearmint and menthol. Restart uses pharmaceutical-grade magnesium sulfate and natural sea salts in this product, which is sized at 16oz.

CBD Soaking Salts are recommended for whole-body pain management, and are awesome for soaking your feet in, removing dead skin and having a general replenishing effect. The amount of soaking salts you should use depends entirely on the amount of water you’re dissolving them into. 

Restart CBD’s tincture oils 

No CBD brand would be complete without a range of tincture oils. Once again, Restart CBD’s dedication to quality and novelty shines through, with three standout tinctures. These include a Pure Isolate tincture with just CBD and no THC, a potent Full-Spectrum tincture with a full profile of hemp compounds, and a unique CBD:CBG Oil Sleep Aid – CBG is second only to CBD in the non-intoxicating cannabinoid stakes!
