Types of CBD Products (and How to Use CBD Oil, Capsules, and more…)

As you would expect, there are many different kinds of CBD products available, designed with different people and situations in mind. As a healthy and versatile substance, CBD oil can be used to bring about a range of benefits.

If you’re wondering about the benefits or limitations of certain products, or if you’d like to know more about how to use CBD oil, capsules, tinctures, and topicals.


For those looking for the purest and strongest CBD product available, CBD oil is the answer. This particular form is more concentrated and will contain the highest quantity of CBD in comparison to the other types of products below.

When considering how to use CBD oil, you should be aware that it typically has no added flavors or sweeteners. As such, many who find the natural flavor difficult to swallow will often mix it with other foods, such as ice cream, in order to make it more palatable.

CBD oil is completely safe and designed to be taken orally or through a vaporizer.

CBD Capsules

As an option for consuming CBD on the go, look no further than the capsules.

CBD capsules are tasteless and odorless and are easy to track when it comes to consumption. However, you will be limited to the serving size of the capsule, which makes it difficult to find the precise serving that works for you and your situation.

CBD Tinctures

One of the most versatile forms of CBD, tinctures are particularly well suited to first-time users of the product. This is due to the fact that serving size can be precisely controlled thanks to the dropper included in the packaging while tinctures typically come in a variety of flavors, including vanilla, peppermint, and cinnamon.

The tinctures are taken by adding a few drops under your tongue, which allows the CBD to act quicker than most other forms of CBD products. You can also mix the tincture with drinks if you prefer.

CBD Topicals

Creams, lotions, and balms are super handy and more practical than other forms of CBD products. This is because you can target particular problem areas on your body, such as a sore knee or lower back, and enjoy the benefits of CBD directly as it is absorbed through the skin.

The downside to this approach, however, is that the topicals are typically slower to work than most other CBD products.

How Does CBD Work?

There are things in our brains called G protein-coupled receptors, and they interact with the chemical properties of things we consume. If you smoke or otherwise ingest cannabis, the THC will attach itself to one of these receptors (the CB1 receptor, to be precise) and elicit those feelings of euphoria and elation associated with weed.

On the other hand, CBD finds another receptor with which to bind: the CB2 receptor. Instead of amplifying those feelings normally felt when consuming THC, CBD actually acts as an antagonist, turning them down or off. This serves to ensure CBD is not habit forming.

CBD also binds to a different receptor, the 5-HT1A receptor, as an agonist. This means it promotes a reaction, namely one that has the potential to reduce inflammation and other desirable effects. -I. Gorman, HHO
