If you are like me, you may find yourself getting a little bit overwhelmed by the crazy variety of different CBD products. Know that you are not alone!
Not only are there different products such as drops, face lotions, teas, foods, etc… but there are also thousands of brands that supply these products. Nowadays, you can find an intimidating amount of brands that offer CBD products, making it very difficult to decide which companies to support.
If you aren’t very bothered about the brand or the other ingredients in your products, then you will likely have an easy time choosing. Aside from which brand to support, concluding which products are best for you may also be difficult.
Maybe you don’t even know what CBD is all together! I am hoping to help you bring clarity to all of these things and assist you in the decision-making process, ensuring you are getting to most out of your products.
Let’s start with the basics
What is CBD
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. You may already know the more famous cannabinoid, THC.
A big difference between these two cannabinoids is that THC is psychoactive, meaning it gets you high. CBD on the other hand is not psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high.
Both of these cannabinoids hold their own benefits for the mind and body. It is a fantastic alternative for those wishing to reap all the benefits without getting the sometimes unwanted ‘high’.
Quantities of Cannabidiol are naturally much higher in hemp than in traditional Cannabis, which is why it is most commonly extracted from hemp.
Cannabidiol can provide many different benefits for the mind and body. Each product hosts its own function and benefits, which is why it is important to know how to find the right CBD product for you
Your CBD Path
One thing I don’t see very often in the community is talk about what I like to call the ‘CBD path’. I have been taking Cannabidiol for years and incorporate it into my daily life. If you are looking to get the most out of your CBD usage, I would suggest looking at it in the sense that it is a journey you are embarking on with yourself to increase your sense of wellbeing.
Before you begin, try analyzing your current lifestyle and exactly why you want to use Cannabidiol and then go from there. Once you do this, it will be more clear to you as to what products are most suitable and which CBD product(s) will improve your life the most.
I have said this a million times and I will say it a million more- research, research, research! Never stop researching the many uses and applications of Cannabidiol, whether you are new to the topic or have used it for years.
The knowledge base for CBD is constantly growing and new studies are always being pushed now that there is a lot of promising science backing the promising properties of CBD. This is something that should begin before you ever try a single Cannabidiol product and should be practiced throughout your entire journey.
Every CBD path is special as we are unique creatures with specific needs. Experiment and take it one step at a time and always say in-tune with your mind and body.
Choosing the right product(s) + examples
Before buying any CBD product, try and make sure you do the necessary research and look into the company you are supporting.
There are so many different Cannabidiol products on the market that it is worth trying to line up which products you want to use with your current lifestyle. For example:
Do you wear makeup every day?
Perhaps you could look into CBD beauty products to gain a few benefits you wouldn’t normally get from wearing traditional makeup.
Do you enjoy sports?
Do you suffer from a sleeping disorder?
Love the activity and benefits of smoking Cannabis

Do you suffer from a skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema?
You will definitely want to try out a CBD balm with other naturally soothing ingredients. Cannabidiol works as an effective anti-inflammatory that will give your skin the relief it is looking for.
Do you enjoy a delicious smoothie each morning?
Try throwing a square of CBD dark chocolate or a serving of CBD powder in as an additional source of nutrients!
Want to simply improve your overall quality of life

There seem to be endless ways to add value to your life via CBD products. A great tip is to look at things you are already doing and try to find ways that Cannabidiol could improve it!
If there is a specific provider you have your eye on, feel free to reach out to them! It is always appropriate to shoot them an email and explain what you are looking for and they should be able to point you in the right direction if you are having trouble doing that yourself.
CBD is here to help us heal and improve our lives, so that is exactly how we should treat it. Go ahead and experiment with all the market has to offer you and you may find a new addition to your daily routine and/or practices!
