Trying to figure out what CBD product is your perfect fit? Keeping these factors in mind could be the key to success here!

It can be hard to figure out what CBD product is right for you, especially if you’re new to the world of CBD. There are so many different products that can be used for a variety of functions, but what most people don’t understand is that establishing your very own CBD regimen is somewhat of a personal experience.
You have to ask yourself some key questions and do a little experimentation to find the perfect product and regimen that works for you. Here are some tips that’ll make the process much easier:
CBD Oil Preference
As you start to familiarize yourself with the different forms of CBD oils, you’ll notice some products are made with full or broad spectrum oil, while others contain CBD isolate. Understanding how these oils affect the product as a whole is an important part of deciding which product is right for you. A full spectrum oil is created from the whole plant and contains virtually all of the plant’s desirable cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG and CBV.
Hemp-derived CBD extracts can contain hundreds of different cannabinoids, while still possessing less than 0.3% THC. It is this combination of compounds that activates the “entourage effect,” which is the process in which several cannabinoids work to provide their own unique effects simultaneously. This type of oil is utilized quite a bit in tinctures and capsules for this exact reason.
Broad spectrum oil is created in the same manner, but those trace amounts of THC are removed from the oil. This option is great for those who prefer an oil completely devoid of any THC.
You will also find some products that are made with CBD isolate. This oil is made by stripping away all other cannabinoids and terpenes from the extract, ultimately producing an oil that is 99.9% pure CBD.
How much experience do you have with CBD?
If you don’t have much experience with CBD, you should start slow with whatever product you decide to go with. There is no “one size fits all” method; you have to experiment a little bit and see what works for you. Also, when you start at a slower pace, you’re able to more accurately gauge what meshes with your schedule. Some people prefer having CBD in the morning, while others prefer it in the evenings.
You should always keep your experience and tolerance levels in mind while browsing CBD products. Here at CBDfx, we understand that everyone falls within different categories, and that’s why we offer a variety of concentrations. A popular product that people love to start with is our Original Mixed Berry Gummies. These gummies contain 10mg of CBD hemp extract per serving, truly making them the perfect introductory product if you’re just getting acquainted with CBD. They are 100% vegan and taste as good as they sound, because they’re created with all-natural flavorings and sweeteners!
Do you prefer a product that is more discreet?
Some of us are more open about our choices than others, and that’s totally fine! If you want to give CBD a try, but want your personal choices to remain private, we just want to let you know that our packages arrive with discreet labeling; only you will know what’s inside the box. Additionally, many of our products boast a sleek, compact structure, allowing them to be stored anywhere and be used in a discreet fashion, whether you’re at home or running errands.
One of the most popular categories of items we carry that give you a chance to be super discreet with your CBD are our vape pens. They are a great option, because they offer you the convenience of bringing them along for whatever life adventures you experience! Our Blue Raspberry CBD Vape Pen never disappoints, packed with 30mg of broad spectrum CBD and a delicious fruity flavor. It’s ready to go from the moment you pull it out of the box, and once it runs out of juice, you can simply toss it out and pick up a new one. This disposable pen is perfect for discreet CBD enjoyment at any time of day!
If you’re no stranger to the wonders of CBD, you might prefer a CBD capsule or a tincture with a stronger concentration. Experience with CBD can often be key when making decisions on CBD products. You’ve reached a point where you know exactly what you need out of a CBD product, allowing you to skip steps that others would need to take.
If you know that you need a longer-lasting CBD option, capsules are perfect for you. CBDfx gel capsules contain 25mg of full spectrum CBD, combined with MCT oil for greater bodily absorption. They are created with 100% organically grown hemp and are long-lasting, convenient and discreet!
Absorption Times & Quality Control
Since we all have our own unique reasons for choosing CBD, it’s understandable that we might be looking for products with different rates of absorption and bioavailability. That’s why it’s helpful to understand the onset times of different products. With this information, you’ll know exactly what to expect while in the selection process. CBD vape pens offer the quickest onset time, because CBD in a vapor form travels straight into your bloodstream through the lungs.
The second quickest method of absorption is considered by many CBD aficionados to be tinctures, because the 1-2 drops of oil that you apply under your tongue quickly enter into the bloodstream through sublingual capillaries. The next category consists of edible products which can take a little longer, depending on the individual. If you’re thinking about a topical option, creams, salves, balms and lotions can take a bit longer to kick in, but the effects are long-lasting when applied correctly.
After you’ve begun considering the factors listed above, you’ll want to make sure that you know which products are coming from reputable manufacturers by checking out their third-party lab reports. This information should not be hard to find, as most brands have the information posted right on their websites. You can check these lab reports to verify that the product doesn’t contain any heavy metal, mycotoxins, pesticides or other shady additives that could pose a threat to your health when consumed.
Here at CBDfx, we make it as easy as possible for you to access the lab reports and accurate ingredient lists off all our products. Your safety is important to us, so we’ve taken every step possible to keep our products pure and our lab reports available to everyone!
Finding the perfect product doesn’t have to be a long, tedious process that drives you crazy, especially now that you’re armed with some key questions to ask yourself to get started in the right direction. So, relax and enjoy finding the perfect product for you and your lifestyle! You’ll always be in good hands with CBDfx!
