The ABC’s of CBD

The ABCs of CBD are simpler than you think. Once you know them, you’ll be able to pick the best CBD product for your needs without having to ask. At Elixinol, we believe in empowering customers to make an informed decision – resulting in happier people, better CBD standards, and value for money for our clients. 

A for Always go full spectrum

The biggest mistake you can make when shopping CBD is choosing an isolate product. Whenever you’re shopping in-store or online, make sure the product is labeled ‘full spectrum’ or take it out of your cart. CBD Isolates only use the ‘CBD’ compound found in the cannabis plant, leaving over 400 of the other compounds out. Full spectrum CBD uses almost all of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, making for a fuller impact, giving you more opportunity to benefit from the product. Plus, it puts your money to use and gives you the value for CBD you’re looking for. 

B for bioavailability.

Like any medicine, vitamin, or supplement, there’s an optimum way to consume the product you’re taking. Some products have special formulas, allowing the contents to get to work faster. Others don’t, meaning you’ll be paying the same or more for a product while another can get to work faster. CBD’s bioavailability is no different. The bioavailability of a product is how fast it can absorb into your body to be used. With low bioavailability, you lose out on some of the contents in the process of absorption, since it takes longer to get to work. When shopping CBD, choose a product with a high rate of bioavailability to ensure you’re getting the most out of your CBD experience.

C for check the lab tests.

In CBD, the waters can sometimes be murky. The industry is burgeoning, growing, and still learning when it comes to standards – at least for the new, upcoming businesses and entrepreneurs producing CBD for the first time. As a CBD shopper, you can find peace of mind by asking for lab tests for your product. This will ensure that your product is safe and contains no harmful residue left over from inaccurate or outdated extraction processes.
