Cannot say enough good things about Derek and TMA, and for CBD oil in general. I wrote previously regarding the multitude of medications I've been relying on for years.In the two weeks since starting, I have not taken a single muscle relaxer or ibuprofen for pain and I can't tell you the last time I was able to work, to function, without those medications...

Fantastic customer service! Recently I have tried the CBD isolate gummies, the nighttime and daytime formulas. I have also tried the CBD Salve for my hands. I was quite skeptical in the beginning, however I am very pleased with the results. The gummies actually do make me feel much better and the ones for night time help me...

To better help our customers and potential customers, The Mass Apothecary has set up an easy guide to helping you find the best CBD product(s) that fit your personal needs. 

First of all, you need to decide if you want a full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate CBD product. You can quickly find out the difference between all 3 types of CBD by reading below.

Differences between Full Spectrum CBD Broad Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate

Full Spectrum CBD-

Full-spectrum CBD means that an oil or product contains all the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD (Cannabidiol). Full-spectrum products are associated with the “entourage effect” – this refers to the increased effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working synergistically.

So, what else are you getting with a full spectrum product besides CBD? The short answer is you are getting more than 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, & minerals. CBD and THC are the most abundant cannabinoids in cannabis, but there are several minor cannabinoids that can play an important role in the effectiveness of a CBD product. 

Broad Spectrum CBD-

Broad-spectrum CBD is CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant with all of the other compounds from the plant except for THC. That means it contains terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant. This should not result in psychoactive effects, but there is still more research to be done. And because there is no THC in broad-spectrum CBD, it shouldn’t show up on a drug test.

Isolate CBD-

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, and it’s exactly what it sounds like CBD that is isolated from other parts of the cannabis plant. It’s extracted from the plant with no other compounds or cannabinoids. That means there are no terpenes or essential oils in it. It also contains no THC, so it does not cause psychoactive side effects, and it should not show up on a drug test. It’s simply pure CBD. Of course, it’s important to remember that it also means that you do not get the full benefits of the essential oils that are part of broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD.

Now that you know the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate CBD, you need to figure out which method or methods you want to get CBD into your body. Here are the main ways to use CBD with brief descriptions to help you understand the difference between them,
CBD Oil Tinctures

CBD Oil Tinctures

CBD oil tinctures are the most commonly bought CBD products. Oil tinctures are great for everyday use as a regiment taken 1-3 times daily. These are easy to adjust your serving size and are available in a wide range of potency's. Perfect for the overall health benefits and for use as a type of "preventative maintenance".When taking CBD oil tinctures sublingually, effects will last 6-8 hours, but it takes 30-60 minutes to start feeling the effects.

CBD Topicals

CBD Topicals

CBD topicals are any type of product that you put directly on your skin such as creams, salves, lotions, or patches. These are the types of products you want to use if you have aches or pains in targeted areas. You feel the effects of topicals within minutes but usually within seconds, which is why topicals are right up there with oil tinctures as far as popularity goes. Aside from patches, which vary on how long they last, topicals last 3-4 hours before the effects wear off. Use topicals as needed throughout the day.

CBD Capsules

CBD Capsules

CBD capsules are very similar to oil tinctures and are a great alternative to oil tinctures if you don't like taking oil sublingually or just don't like the taste of the oils. The great thing about capsules are there are different options available such as pure natural CBD or CBD with natural additives for help with sleep, energy, pain, inflammation, etc. CBD capsules are a great way to take CBD on a regiment like tinctures 1-3 times daily. Capsules are also a discreet, easy way to consume CBD if you need to take while at work or out in public. Capsules usually take 30-90 minutes to feel the effects and last 6-8 hours.

CBD Gummies

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles such as gummies or chocolate bars are becoming more and more popular as its an easy and tasty way to get CBD into our systems. The most popular of all edibles are gummies. Edibles are a great way to get your CBD if you prefer not to take oil or capsules. Many people take edibles for anxiety, sleep, stress, or for the many other great benefits CBD offers. This is another form of CBD that is discreet and easy to take publicly or while at work. Edibles typically take 30-60 minutes for you to feel the effects and last 4-12 hours. It is different for everyone as our digestive system and metabolism make the effect last different for everyone.

Why should I get two kinds of CBD?

The best success we have had personally and our customers have had is with the best combination of CBD products. 

Many people for example have anxiety or pain related reasons why they use CBD.

For someone with pain, the best combination is getting either a tincture or capsules for their daily regiment as a kind of “preventative maintenance” and for the MANY Overall Health Benefits and then complimenting their daily regiment with a topical to use when they need instant pain relief throughout the day when its pain in targeted areas.

If you are getting CBD because you have anxiety, the same general idea applies. You do best with a daily regiment of either capsules or an oil tincture and then you compliment that with an edible like CBD gummies. You get the most effectiveness by taking the oil or capsules daily 1-3 times and then taking a gummy as needed when you have more anxiety than normal. 

These are just a couple of the common reasons why people take CBD and how a duo of CBD products gives them the best effectiveness, but the same applies for many other reasons why people are looking for the benefits of CBD. Call us today to get your FREE Personalized CBD recommendations so you can get the most out of CBD and the correct products for personal needs.
