Walk into a CBD store these days and you'll notice the selection of products has grown astronomically. Along with all the classic oils, tinctures, and capsules, you'll see everything from CBD bubble bath to CBD bubble gum! Trying all of these different products can be both therapeutic and fun, but there are a few tips you'll want to keep in mind throughout your experimentation.
Pay attention to dose
While taking too much CBD is not dangerous, it can make you feel overly tired and sometimes even unmotivated. Also, taking too little CBD to feel the effects at all is basically a waste. So pay attention to dose when trying new CBD products. If you've been using a CBD product already, you should have some sort of baseline for how different doses will affect you. Base the dosage from other products off of this baseline. For example, if you have been taking 10 mg gummies, then you know that you should use approximately 10 mg of CBD at a time when trying other products.
Be careful when combining topical products with oral ones
When you apply a topical CBD product, like lotion, some of the CBD is absorbed through the skin and into your bloodstream, which means it takes effect inside your body, not just on the surface. Keep this in mind when using topical products alongside oral ones. For instance, if you are applying a CBD lip balm, you may want to take slightly less CBD tincture than you would normally in order to take into to account the CBD in the lip balm.
Keep track of what you like
This is especially important if you plan on visiting the CBD store and trying a bunch of smaller things. Don't just haphazardly sample a little of this and a little of that. As you try different products, write down which ones you like and which ones you don't like. These notes will help you buy future CBD products that are better suited to your needs. For instance, if you look back on your notes and realize you've tried 3 topical CBD products and have not liked any of them, then you can conclude it's probably not worth buying other topical CBD products. If you look back and realize you liked every single lozenge you ever tried, then you know more lozenges won't go to waste if you buy them.
Experimenting with different CBD products can be a lot of fun. Just follow the tips above as you do so.
