CBD oil seems to be popping up everywhere these days. From pet treats to food infusions to skincare, there are hundreds of companies touting its potential benefits and offering different types of products made with this hemp-derived substance. With the potential to help with daily functions such as sleep, mood, and muscle recovery, it’s no wonder why interest in CBD oil is growing as more products hit the market. But, this product and information “overload” can easily lead to confusion when trying to determine how to take CBD oil in order for it to make an impact on your daily recovery.
Here, we cover three of the most popular types of products available today that offer safe and convenient ways to take CBD oil and reap the potential benefits. But, before we dive in, we suggest you also take a look at our recent article CBD Oil and Transparency: Why It Matters for some helpful tips on selecting credible, trustworthy brands.
Option 1: CBD Oil Tincture
CBD oil tinctures are liquid solutions that combine hemp-derived CBD oil with other ingredients, such as MCT oil and natural flavors. This is a popular choice among CBD oil users today as it can be easily taken orally using a dropper or mixed in with a beverage. The ideal serving size will vary for each individual, so we suggest starting with a smaller dose and determining what ends up working best for your body’s unique endocannabinoid system. While many tinctures sold today have an “earthy” taste often associated with hemp-derived CBD oil, others are made with natural flavors to create a more pleasant taste. Maddyn’s tinctures, for example, are made with the calming and pleasant flavor of natural mint, making the oil easy to take orally or great when mixed in with your favorite tea.
Option 2: CBD Oil Capsules
Capsules are an easy and convenient way to make CBD oil part of your daily routine because most of us are so accustomed to swallowing vitamins or supplements already. There’s no guesswork involved with the dosage, as this is already measured out for you in each capsule. Plus, the convenient packaging and delivery system means you can take your CBD oil with you wherever you go – to work, to the gym, or when traveling. When shopping for CBD oil capsules, it’s important to look closely at any other ingredients used so you know what you are getting. In addition to full spectrum CBD oil, our capsules include turmeric with its active compound curcumin to help support muscle recovery and are wrapped in a vegan shell so the product is entirely plant-based.
Option 3: CBD Oil Topical Cream
CBD creams are a great addition to your other preferred method of taking CBD (tincture or capsules) as these can help relieve aches and pains associated with daily activity to help promote faster recovery. Application is quick and easy, as you simply rub the cream directly to the affected areas of the body. That said, not all CBD creams are created equal. You want to look for products that will not dry out your skin or leave an unpleasant odor, which is something often associated with pain-relieving topicals. Maddyn’s topical cream is made with the relief potential of arnica and natural menthol, plus moisturizing cocoa butter and the pleasant scents of eucalyptus and lavender.
While there are many different types of CBD oil products available today, these three types offer simple and convenient ways to integrate it into your daily routine. Once you start using CBD oil, you will be able to determine the types of products and dosages that are best for you. No matter how you choose to take CBD oil, remember to always look for brands that use high-quality, plant-based products and offer third-party lab results for all products.
