Whenever you’re starting out with a new product, the best time to try it is right before bed—just in case it makes you drowsy, says Capano. Even if it doesn’t, you’re pretty much guaranteed a good night’s sleep.
For oils, creams, and other topical treatments—which are a great option for eczema, burns, or other skin conditions—“dosage depends on the concentration of the product, but generally just apply a small amount, as needed,” suggests Capano. Topicals also can help with headaches or migraines if you apply it at onset. And if getting your CBD with a vaporizer, start small. “You need less from a vaporizer and will have a very rapid onset,” she says. For this reason, she recommends trying just 2.5 mg at first.
Can I vape CBD?
The bad news: Your body metabolizes CBD through a pathway in your liver known as CYP 450, where enzymes break up potentially harmful compounds—and it’s the same pathway in your liver that metabolizes most common prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines, says Capano.
From gummies to pills to beauty creams, CBD is everywhere: Americans spent more than $360 million on products with this cannabis compound in 2017. And devotees claim it boosts health and has all the bliss-out benefits of weed, minus the paranoia. But how much do you really know about it? We’ll be honest, what it is (and isn’t) and what is does and how it works is complex—and had us more than a little confused before we started working on this project. So we asked an expert, Alex Capano, chief science officer for Ananda Hemp, a Kentucky-based health and wellness brand specializing in CBD products—a woman who spends all day every day studying CBD—to breakdown everything we might possibly want to know about the plant derivative. That way, you can feel confident adding it to your medicine cabinet (and nightstand, and handbag) ASAP.
“They both are relatively safe, but CBD is arguably safer for several reasons,” she says. For one, it won’t affect your motor skills or cognition, so you can use CBD and still drive your car or get through a day at the office without causing coworkers to raise an eyebrow. Also, while the THC in a joint, vape pen, or gummy might leave you feeling paranoid, CBD is actually an anxiolytic (meaning it nixes anxiety) and anti-psychotic.
Since the Farm Bill of 2018, many people have tried to capitalize on the boom of CBD and other hemp-based vegan CBD products. Unfortunately, a side effect of this is improperly labeled, or low-quality CBD products. There is even a report the Food and Drug Administration announced in 2020. This report acknowledges the falsely labeled CBD products they found during their investigation. We aren’t telling you this to scare you, but it is important you know the real truth about the situation our industry is in.
Thankfully, New Phase Blends sets the standard in CBD products. Our vegan CBD gel capsules are nothing short of the best vegan CBD on the market. You may find a product of similar quality, but you will not find anything better. All products are carefully made in a GMP certified facility. The hemp used to make these vegan CBD gel capsules is 100% organic. It’s some of the highest quality hemp that exists on the planet. Every single product batch is tested by a third party organization that we have zero ties with. The result of this hard work is what you see here.
We guarantee the results of our products, or you can simply ask for a refund in full. We don’t ask questions. Offering a money-back guarantee on our products is a testament to how confident we are in the quality of our products. Click the button below to learn more about how vegan CBD pills may help you.
