Full Spectrum vs CBD Isolate

Something that you’ll want to consider is whether or not you want a full spectrum product or an isolate product. Full spectrum refers to products that contain more cannabinoids than just plain CBD. THC, and other active compounds found in the cannabis plant are just some of the many compounds that can be found in full spectrum products. Isolates refer to a product that is just CBD based, no THC whatsoever. Isolates can be used for cooking since they are tasteless unlike other forms. Many people believe that full-spectrum products are considered to be better for a person’s health.

Finding the Right Strength

Certain CBD products have different strengths or amounts of CBD in them. This is important to note, especially if you are new to the CBD realm and have not explored many of them. CBD may give you some side effects like: dizziness, headaches, and diarrhea. So, it may be beneficial to start at a lower dosage so that your body can get used to the substances that you are putting in it. Remember that just because it is a natural substance, it is still a foreign substance that is not used to being inside your body —  it may take some getting used to. It may also take some trial and error when figuring out what dosage is right for you but you’ll get the hang of it.

Consumption Type

This can be the hardest decision to make because there are so many product options that you can choose from.


Oils are very standard among the industry and are used by many people. They offer a ton of versatility, since you can cook with them, consume them directly, and even apply them on to the skin. Oils are very easy to take and allow you to consume them in multiple ways depending on what you need. However, many people find that they have a strong taste. So if you are looking at a CBD oil to consume orally, you may want to look at other options. Or your carrier may offer oils that are flavored. They can also be related and called tinctures, so don’t let the name confuse you.


If you’re an on-the-go type of person capsules may be the best way of consumption for you. Capsules are very easy and quick to take, and unlike oils, you don’t have to worry about them spilling in your bag. They’re a great way to incorporate CBD into your daily life and can be more discreet looking if you’re worried about taking them in public. However, unlike others you cannot customize the dosage amount. But some people like the fact that they don’t have to measure anything on their own. So whatever you prefer!


These are products that can be applied directly to the skin. These can include items like creams, lotions, balms, salves, and even bath bombs. When applied to the skin, CBD sinks into the layers of the skin and reaches the bloodstream. Many athletes and people with physical pain problems tend to use topicals in order to alleviate muscle or joint pain. CBD can also help boost the skin’s appearance and give you a glowing appearance. Many skincare brands have even jumped on the bandwagon with this one.


CBD can be expensive, we understand this. If you’re on a tight budget you may want to explore different products. All products have a large range of prices, so you are pretty much guaranteed to find some sort of product that fits your budget.

In the end, there really is no wrong answer when picking a CBD product. You may have to do some experimenting yourself but the good news is that you’ll have plenty of options to choose from!
