What are CBD Products?
CBD products are products made from cannabidiol, one of the primary active ingredients in the cannabis plant. CBD products are gaining popularity as a treatment for a wide range of ailments. These ailments can range from short term physical injuries to long-lasting chronic conditions such as epilepsy.
Benefits of CBD Products
- Treats symptoms of epilepsy – Scientists investigated CBD’s potential to treat epilepsy across many clinical trials. Research consistently finds CBD to be an effective treatment for epilepsy. 
- Manages stress and reduces high blood pressure – A clinical study indicates that a single dose of CBD reduces both resting blood pressure and blood pressure due to stress in humans.
- Relieves anxiety and depression – Research that measured over 8,000 sessions found that CBD, when used in conjunction with both low and high doses of THC, reduces anxiety and short term depression.
- May offer relief for Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – Studies with both humans and animals suggest that CBD is a strong therapeutic candidate for the treatment of post-traumatic stress. It has fewer side effects than other pharmacological treatments. 
- Relieves pain – Preclinical trials in animals and anecdotal reports from humans suggest that CBD has therapeutic benefits in pain relief and as an anti-inflammatory.
Types of CBD Products Offered by Canna Culture
CBD tinctures are a concentrated liquid form. Usually, manufacturers mix in other oils such as almond oil, ginseng, and fruit flavors. Tinctures have grown to become an extremely popular means of taking CBD. Dripping a tincture is a great way to get a high concentration of CBD into your system.
Tincture Use: Drip a drop or two underneath your tongue. After a few minutes, use your tongue to rub the oil around your cheeks and gums. This is called sublingual ingestion. Check the bottle for dosage instructions as it may vary between manufacturers.
Topicals cover all products that get applied to the skin. Popular topicals around Santa Clara County include balms, salves, oils, and lotions. Applying Topicals can treat inflammation, acne, chronic pain, and more.
Topical use: Simply apply the topical substance to the area you want to treat.
Edibles have come a long way from those infamous pot brownies that got passed around at college bake sales. CBD edibles now come in many forms. Depending on current inventory, you can find a selection of CBD chocolates, mints, gummies, hard candy, and more.
Edible use: Eat the edible the way you would any other chocolate or candy. Usually, edibles take the longest for the effects to become active but they also tend to last longer. Make sure to check your edibles for THC content. If your edible contains high THC content make sure to pace yourself.
Unlike other products, you can easily consume CBD capsules in the middle of a busy day. CBD is non-intoxicating which makes it suitable for mid-day use. You don’t have to worry about using another device like you would with flower or cartridges. Additionally, they won’t be melting in your car if you forget them unlike chocolates or some topicals.
Capsule use: Place a capsule in your mouth and swallow it the way you would any other pill.
For clients that enjoy vaping, CBD cartridges are available for vape pens. While some studies suggest a reduced effect from CBD when its vaped or smoked, many still prefer this method. If you already own a vape pen, you can enjoy CBD by vaping it.
Cartridge use: Attach the CBD cartridge to your preferred vape pen, turn on the heat and when ready, inhale the CBD vapor.
Some people prefer to take CBD the old fashioned way: by smoking or vaporizing the raw CBD flower. High CBD, low THC flower is great for those that enjoy the sensation of smoking.
Flower use: Take hold of your preferred device and simply smoke or vaporize the flower. You can roll up the flower, use a water pipe, or load it into a vaporizer device.
Pamper yourself with a CBD bath bomb. CBD bath bombs also make an exciting way to enjoy the benefits of CBD oil with a partner! Even if you are alone, they complement a soothing bath. Bath bombs combine CBD extract with essential oils that are used in non-CBD bath bombs. Enjoy the best of both worlds with CBD bath bombs.
Bath bomb use: Fill your bathtub with warm/hot water then drop in the bath bomb. We recommend soaking in the tub for at least 30 minutes after the bath bomb has been dropped.
