There's no shortage of stories about the benefits of cannabidiol, that benign (and non-psychoactive) cousin of THC. Some have been using it for years to deal with pain, stress, and sleeplessness. And the more people use it, the more discussion there is about how to use it.
While there's no shortage of quality edibles on the market, oils and tinctures are emerging as a quicker way to get the effects, and an easier way to manage the dosage. Here are three of our favorites, but remember: Check your local laws before you buy. And as with any medicinal product, consult your doctor to find out if it's right for you.
Made with a blend of hemp seed oil and 99.9% pure CBD isolate, this remedy is fully vegan and gluten-free. While you can take a drop under the tongue, this one is especially ideal for mixing in your favorite foods or drinks. It won't affect the taste and delivers the same salvation from insomnia or stress. Get this 15ml bottle of Medix CBD Oil 100MG for $21.99, down 18% from the retail price.
Sunday Scaries products have been around since the dawn of the CBD explosion, and for good reason. Their tincture is fortified with full-spectrum CBD, plus vitamins B12 and B3 for an extra boost to the immune system. The whole cocktail is carried along in a coconut oil solution for a bit of an energy kick, and there are no GMOs in any of the ingredients. You can get a bottle of Sunday Scaries 500mg CBD Tincture for $64.99, a 7% discount off the MSRP.
For a pick-me-up (or calm-me-down) at work, these drops are ideal. Apply a drop under the tongue, and there's a dash of peppermint flavor to help it go down smooth. Each of those drops contains a broad spectrum dose that includes CBD, CBN, and assorted terpenes, extracted from US-grown hemp. A 1000 mg bottle of Curapure CBD Oil Tincture Drops is priced at $49.99, a full 47% off the list price.
