Beginners Guide to CBD
If you’re looking to try CBD but aren’t sure where or how to start, this quick summary will provide everything you need to know before ordering your inaugural supply of CBD products.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of many active compounds derived from the cannabis sativa plant. The other common compound is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has the psychoactive properties that ‘gets you high’.
CBD, comparatively, offers many of the same medicinal and wellness benefits of THC, but without the psychoactive effects. CBD is a safe, natural, and affordable alternative to pain and inflammation relief. Our customers say it is excellent for those who suffer from arthritis, joint pain, or post-athletic recovery.
How do I take CBD?
Nuts & Buds CBD products come in a variety of forms.
The most popular include:
Capsules and pills
Depending on your experience with CBD, you may opt for products like oils and tinctures if you’re comfortable managing your dosages.
If you’re new to CBD, you may be better off with capsules, pills, or edibles, which are produced with very specific CBD dosage amounts.
What dosage is right for me?
We always tell our customers to start low when venturing into and going slow with their dosages.
It’s always best to err on the side of caution when trying a new product or upping dosages. You should have a firm understanding of how your body will react to CBD. As with anything new, it's best to start with the product packaging’s recommended dosage first, unless your doctor has advised you on a different, stronger dosage.
