We’re sure you’ve already heard of the oh so elusive CBD. It’s been the hot keyword in 2021 in health supplements, skin care, candy and even tea! CBD stands for cannabidiol which is an extract from the cannabis plant that is often touted for it’s anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects. It’s two most popular forms are full spectrum extract (contains 0.3% THC) or pure isolate (contains 0% THC) and you can find many of these products flooding the market.
It has been shown to help reduce inflammation, pain and provide relief for chronic symptoms. Depending on the dosage of CBD ingested, it can help relax tension to help with insomnia and restlessness. Adding CBD to your daily routine can help change how you deal with pain, anxiety and other muscle issues.

It comes as no surprise that supplements are first on our list. Everything from oils, pills and powders has been incorporated with CBD to create an easy and low calorie way to intake the popular extract.
We love the CBD Canada Solvent-Free Tincture which is a CBD oil supplement that can be easily administered under the tongue for easy absorption. You can also find capsules filled with CBD and other herbal extracts to boost your immune system and diet.
If simple and straightforward is your pick, definitely go for pure isolate which can be mixed into your food and salads for easy ingesting. Make sure to always choose a company that uses 3rd party lab testing to know the product you’re getting is reliable.
2) Drink it
Care for some CBD tea or coffee? You can easily find many different brands offering CBD green tea or herbal blends with a quick internet search. Simply brew and enjoy!
If you’re sensitive to caffeine you can always add your favorite CBD oil to your favorite juice, smoothie or beverage and enjoy!
3) Eat it
If you prefer to eat your CBD you can now find gummy candies, chocolates, chips and even baked treats. CBD edibles have exploded on the market and you can now easily find CBD in ingestible forms with just a quick search online.
Cream, lotions, salves, roller balls, bath products, and lip balms are only a few of the multitude of CBD topicals out there. These have dominated the market for those who are hesitant but want to try out the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabidiol.
We suggest trying out a CBD Bath Salt soak if you are new to CBD. Follow with a CBD cream or CBD roller ball to soothe any muscle/joint pain or inflammation and irritation.
5) Smoke it
We know smoking should be avoided since we have all seen those lung x-rays. However if you don’t want to consume CBD from the 4 steps above then smoking the flower may be your best bet. You can find natural strains that have a higher percentage of CBD and even CBD only strains (ie. Charlotte’s Web). Expect to pay a premium for these products as they may be less accessible and don’t last as long.
