Are you curious about the benefits of CBD oil but just not sure where to start? CBD Emporium offers a wide range of CBD-infused wellness products for the modern, health-conscious individual. Our product selection can help to provide relief for common, everyday ailments like stress, anxiety, joint pain, inflammation and sleep issues. CBD oil, topical, gummies, capsules, vapes and even bath bombs, we got it all but which CBD product should you try? Before we dive in, lets go over the 3 different types of CBD extracts:
1. Full Spectrum CBD
Full spectrum CBD oil derived from hemp is a whole plant extract that contains the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in hemp, including trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less)
Cannabinoids are classified as naturally occurring compounds found in hemp. Cannabinoids work together to produce the " entourage effect" - this means that all the compounds work together to enhance each other's benefits. The benefits of cannabinoids include anxiety relief, reduced joint pain, anti-inflammatory properties and more.
Full Spectrum CBD derived from hemp is non-intoxicating (no high) - this is due to the fact that it contains less that 0.3% THC.
2. Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad spectrum CBD is a whole plant extract that contains the naturally occurring cannabinoids, except it is THC free.
3. CBD Isolate
CBD isolate is a crystalline solid or powder extract that is 99.9% CBD and THC free.
Is one better than the other?
Studies have shown that when CBD extracts contain other cannabinoids, such as CBN, CBG & CBC, they can provide a wider range of therapeutic effects. The biggest advantage of using full spectrum CBD & broad spectrum CBD products is the “entourage effect”.
Different Types of CBD Products
CBD Oil CBD Oil is a convenient way to consume CBD sublingual (under the tongue), for a direct, fast acting effect. When consumed sublingual, CBD absorbs through the membranes in the mouth and directly into the bloodstream. CBD oil is used to manage joint pain, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety and improve quality of sleep. Which CBD oil should I choose? With any holistic natural remedy, such as CBD Oil, the right product will be unique to the individual using it for their own needs.
What to consider when choosing a CBD oil
Your Body weight
Amount of CBD in the bottle
Full spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate oil
Many of the human studies on CBD use dosages anywhere between 20mg (moderate dose) to 600mg (extremely high dose) per day. Since there isn't a universal dosage, it is best to start with a moderate dose of 20mg - 30mg and increase your dosage in increments to find your sweet spot. We do not recommend exceeding more than 100mg CBD per day, as this much CBD can cause sedation. Also, when choosing a CBD oil be mindful of the ingredients in the product, this will help you choose a CBD oil best suited for you.
Breakdown on CBD Oil Dosages (1 dose = 1ml)
500mg Oil = 16.6mg CBD per 1ml
750mg Oil = 25mg CBD per 1ml
1000mg Oil = 33.3mg CBD per 1ml
1500mg Oil = 50mg CBD per 1ml
2000mg Oil = 66mg CBD per 1ml
3000mg Oil = 100mg CBD per 1ml

While CBD oil is great for aches and pains, CBD topical application (applying onto skin) is highly effective for targeting specific areas of the body, easily and quickly. CBD topical products come in the form of roll-ons, creams and salves. Unlike other methods, CBD does not enter the bloodstream this way. How do CBD topicals work? CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors in our skin. Although, the human skin has low permeability, meaning that it blocks most substances from being absorbed - the CB2 receptors found in our skin makes CBD topicals highly effective for targeted relief. CBD also interacts with the Vanilloid TRPV1 receptors found in the skin to regulate inflammation & pain CBD topicals are used for a more specific purpose, such as knee pain, lower back pain, arthritis, sore muscles and joint pain.

Edibles - CBD Gummies
Edibles are a convenient (and tasty) way to enjoy CBD in your everyday life. Not only do they give you an excuse to indulge in a delicious treat that brightens up your day, they’re also an effective way to enjoy CBD in your daily routine.
CBD Gummies are very popular for reducing stress, joint pain and sleep issues. Gummies breakdown in the digestive system before entering the bloodstream and can provide long lasting relief. Edibles typically take 45 minutes - 2 hours to take effect after being consumed, depending on several factors such as metabolism and how much you've eaten recently.

Capsules typically take 45 minutes - 2 hours to take effect after being consumed, depending on several factors, such as metabolism and how much you've eaten recently.
