If you are thinking about adding the use of CBD oil to your everyday routine, you are probably wondering where to start - but feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the information out there. CBD is quickly gaining popularity not only because the 2018 Farm Bill made hemp-derived CBD legal on the federal level, but also because multiple celebrities are touting how it has helped them with issues like muscle pain, poor sleep, and anxiety. And while this boom in popularity is great for the CBD industry, it can quickly lead to confusion about the many options hitting the market today. In this post, we help wade through the different CBD product options out there today so you understand the different options, uses, and what may be best for you.  

What is CBD Oil, and Why Do People Use It? 

Let’s start by defining CBD, which is an abbreviation of the word cannabidiol. It is one of the over 100 different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the Hemp (Cannabis sativa) plant. CBD extract oil is a natural oil that is extracted from the aerial parts (flowers and leaves) of the hemp plant. It does not cause the psychoactive “high” associated with marijuana, making it an ideal solution for everyday use. Maddyn uses hemp-derived CBD oil in all of its products.  

The use of CBD oil is believed to have many wellness benefits based on what those who use it have said, including helping post-workout recovery, promoting better rest, and promoting a sense of calm and focus.*  

How to Use CBD Oil 

There are many CBD oil options available today that will let you experience its potential benefits. Three of the most popular products available today are tinctures, topical creams, and capsules. Here, we dive into what each type of CBD product is and how to use it.  

CBD Oil Tinctures 

A CBD tincture is a liquid solution that combines CBD oil with other ingredients. It is taken orally, most commonly using a dropper to place a couple of droplets under the tongue and moving it around on the cheeks for optimal absorption and the swallowed. Some tinctures are known to have an earthy, unpleasant taste, so you should look for brands that use natural flavors to improve the taste. Maddyn’s CBD tincture is made with natural mint for a calming and pleasant flavor.  

CBD Oil Creams 

Creams enhanced with CBD oil and other natural ingredients are popular for their relief potential. To avoid skin irritation or dryness, look for products enhanced with skin-friendly ingredients. Maddyn’s CBD cream is made with cacao butter, arnica, menthol, and other essential oils to help with relief and recovery while moisturizing your skin. Worried about an earthy smell? Our cream also has the relaxing scents of eucalyptus and lavender.  

CBD Oil Capsules 

Capsules are a discreet and convenient way to use CBD oil. Simply take 1-2 capsules daily, or as needed, with water. We recommend taking with food if possible. Depending on when you prefer to take your capsules, you can easily take them with you in a small pill holder, or even in the original container without worrying about spilling oil in your bag. And, for those looking for Vegan options, Maddyn’s CBD capsules are made with a vegan shell plus turmeric, which is known to help the body recover from the strains of exercise of activity.  


CBD oil products can be a wonderful addition to your daily routine. If you are new to CBD, it’s important to consider the best product for your unique needs. For example, some people include a combination of products in their daily routines for natural recovery both inside and out helping to optimize your daily renewal and recovery.
