The Ultimate Guide to Buying CBD Hemp Oil Online
Posted on Monday, February 22 2016 06:10:00 PM in News by Trevor Hill
We understand that trying to find the best CBD Hemp oil can be difficult, especially when you are just starting out. Typically, if you want to buy Cannabidiol (CBD) or hemp products, you’d have to go through so many different and sometimes contradicting resources online in order to get accurate information. This is due to the growing popularity of CBD oil, and also because of its highly misunderstood nature.
Many people still confuse CBD with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), or the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Contrary to this, CBD and hemp oil are legal in many states, and do not give the “high” of THC, which many people avoid for its psychological effects.
We at Irie CBD believe that all-natural hemp extracts are the next revolution in nutritional supplements. They provide a wide range of properties that can help with a broad spectrum of diseases plaguing us today, in a natural and safe way.
So, aside from providing you quality CBD Hemp oil products, we want to help you buy cbd oil and make an informed choice to find the best product for your unique situation.
In this article you will learn the following:
- What is CBD oil?
- What should I look for when buying CBD oil products?
- CBD oil benefits
- Who should I buy CBD oil from?
We’ve developed this comprehensive resource to help you do just that.
What is CBD or Hemp oil?
Hemp oil is an extract taken from the seeds of the hemp plant. All plants in the Cannabis family can produce the oil, but industrial hemp is the only plant used for hemp oil. This is because it has the least amount of psychoactive substances associated with the Cannabis family, most notably THC. Hemp oil is usually almost free of THC, and has no psychoactive properties.Hemp seeds tend to produce the best hemp oil, although the entire plant can be pressed to produce the oil.
Cannabidiol or CBD oil, on the other hand, is a natural component of both cannabis and hemp. It is extracted from the flowers, leaves and stalks of hemp and not from its seeds like hemp oil. By using only stringently controlled hemp, which is almost free of THC, you can get all the goodness of CBD without the intoxicating effects of THC.
Together, CBD hemp oils have been reported to help ease a broad spectrum of diseases, including epilepsy, anxiety, autism, stress, PTSD, depression, cancer, pain, diabetes…and more. CBD oil benefits are now being widely researched across the world and given a new light on ti's therapeutic effects.
What should I consider before buying CBD Hemp oil?
CBD hemp oil comes in many forms and sizes. Add to that the growing number of CBD hemp products, brands and stores online, and making your choice can be even more overwhelming.
So, how do you decide which CBD hemp oils are best, or right for you? The first step lies in knowing how to compare similar products, and distinguish among seemingly identical products. To make an informed selection, we recommend you look at four aspects: CBD strength, purity, transparency and price.
First, look at the amount of CBD in relation to hemp oil. CBD products are usually measured using these two quantities. While hemp oil has beneficial properties of its own, when buying CBD products it is the concentration of CBD in it that matters.
Second, look at the specific volume of CBD in the product. This listing should be on the label, most usually expressed as a percentage of the total volume of the product. It can range anywhere from 10% to 26%. Naturally, the concentration you choose would depend on how much CBD you want to start with and what type of product you’ll be getting it from.
We advise that you take 1 to 2 mg daily at first, as this is the typical small dosage for an adult. Try this for about a week – by then, you should be experiencing the benefits, and can adjust the quantity until you find a dosage that works for you.
Don’t worry, science says it’s impossible to overdose or “take too much” CBD, and there are no known incidences of that happening. However, it is possible to take too low a dosage and not feel a difference, effectively wasting CBD’s powerful benefits.
Next, consider what else could be in your CBD hemp oil. It’s possible that they include preservatives, solvents and additives. As we also explained above, CBD hemp oils are derived from hemp stalks, leaves and seeds. And because farming methods vary, there is a good possibility that some products come with pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. If you want to avoid unwanted chemicals, look for products that are derived from Certified Organic industrial hemp.
With purity also comes transparency. For you to know how pure the CBD hemp oil is, the parent company must be willing to provide certified lab analyses for each of their products. This would show the concentration of CBD in the product, and also prove that the product is free from pesticides and other contaminants.
As with any product, price is often related to the product’s quality and purity. To produce high quality CBD hemp oil, a substantial amount of hemp is necessary, and proper refinement processes also have to be in place. So the purer and more highly concentrated the oil is, the higher its price is likely to be.
This is why it’s important to search for a reputable company for your CBD needs. Never settle for low quality oil just to save a few dollars. Instead, find a brand that offers good value and stick with it!
How do I choose the right CBD hemp product for me?
CBD hemp oil is extremely versatile and can be consumed in numerous different ways. In choosing a CBD hemp oil product, here are several questions you may want to ask yourself:
How many milligrams of CBD hemp oil do I need?
Some forms of CBD hemp oil products have more potent concentration of CBD. For instance, you get more CBD with full-extract CBD hemp oil versus those mixed with food, like CBD chocolates or honey sticks.
How do I want to use my CBD hemp oil – at home, on the go, or both?
Some CBD hemp oil products are meant to be used just like other medicines (such as pills and topicals), while others focus more on ease of use to allow consumers to take them on the go (like vape juice). Moreover, some CBD oil products can be used to complement each other, while others are designed to be taken alongside food or drinks.
Do I like the taste of CBD oil, or do I want something flavored?
Like the dosage of CBD, this may also require some trial and error. Some products have added flavors that aim to make the taste of hemp more palatable, or add to the overall experience, while others offer natural flavored CBD oil that packs a stronger punch.
What’s my main consideration – strength or price?
As explained above, the price is typically related to its purity and quality. The purer and more highly concentrated the oil is, the higher its price is likely to be. Choose a company that offers high-quality CBD oil. Now that you know the considerations to make when choosing, let’s examine the types of CBD hemp oil products available to you!
What types of CBD Hemp products does IrieCBD carry?
Irie Hemp Company offers a wide range of high-quality CBD hemp products.
The CBD oil we produce is from Certified Organic NON-GMO hemp plant, making it significantly different from the regular hemp-seed oil you may find in your health food store. Our products contain high CBD cannabis oil content and low THC content.
Moreover, the pure raw materials used and the extracts produced are formulated in the USA and tested by independent 3rd party USA Labs to ensure that they are of the highest standard through every step in the extraction process. Lastly, it is always our goal to provide the purest form of hemp plant extract at an affordable price.
Choose from our wide range of CBD hemp oil offerings:
There are numerous CBD tincture products to choose from, with different flavors and CBD strengths, and all of them are particularly easy to use. Tinctures are the most potent CBD product in terms of dosage precision, as you can easily increase or decrease your dosage by the drop.
CBD Tinctures also tend to be absorbed quicker since they go directly under your tongue. They can also be mixed with any drink during the day, offering you variety and many different ways to take it.
Irie Hemp Company’s formulation includes the world’s finest organic, full-spectrum CBD hemp extract oil. It’s gently infused with the purest ingredients, including organic hemp seed oil and Vitamin E oil extract as an anti-oxidant and natural preservative. Our basic blend, Irie Cbd Hemp Extract Blended Lovingly In Organic Hemp Oil provides a pleasant, sense-enhancing yet calming and non-psychoactive effect. It’s infused with a small amount of Monk Fruit for a more delectable, sweetened taste, and comes in four sizes – 250mg, 500mg, 1000 and 2500 mg.
2. Therapeutic Blends
Our therapeutic blends have the same formula of our full-spectrum CDB hemp extract oil, gently infused with natural ingredients that are meant to enhance and increase the healing properties of CBD.
We have four blends available to answer a variety of health concerns:
The Irie CBD Calm Support (Chill Out Blend) has a mix of Lavender and Peppermint. Lavender lends its calming, stress reducing, sleep-enhancing effects to this blend. Linalool, one of the primary constituents of Lavender, has shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and possible anti-cancer activity as well. Peppermint, aside from providing a cooling effect on the body, contributes to mental clarity and focus, and has been known to have calming effects on the digestive system.
For stress relief, we have the Irie CBD Stress Support (Adaptogenic Blend). Infused with adaptogenic herbs Ashwaganda and Holy Basil, this helps the body function optimally during times of stress. Ashwaganda is an herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Recent studies have shown that it lowers cortisol levels by up to 26%, and lowers blood sugar levels. Holy Basil is another herb with a long history of therapeutic use. It is a powerful herb with anti-inflammatory properties, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, thereby reducing the impact of stress on our bodies.
For dealing with the most serious conditions, we have the Irie CBD Lifeline (Critical Cell Support Blend). It can help you deal with a wide variety of health challenges, due to its mix of Organic Frankincense, Ginger, and Sandalwood essential oils. Frankincense is one of the top essential oils for health. Its healing properties are vast – it can act as an antiseptic, disinfectant and astringent, killing and cleansing the body of the bad stuff. Ginger is a strong second player, and a great complement to Frankincense, with its pain relieving properties. Finally, Sandalwood was added for its high concentration of sesquiterpenes, a chemical compound known for having a positive impact on health and wellness, particularly in regards to the brain.
And how could we forget the kids?
Even the young ones can enjoy the health benefits CBD hemp oil for kids can bring. Our Irie CBD Scbdoo Kids Formula is infused with vegetable glycerin, organic grape seed oil, organic hemp seed oil, and stevia – providing kids with a great way to get the benefits of true hemp extract without struggling with the taste.
If you have a fine taste for chocolate, confections are a great way to indulge while getting your dose of CBD.
Our CBD chocolates are handmade in small batches to ensure potency and freshness. We use the purest organic ingredients to supercharge our chocolate, maximizing the delivery process of cannabinoids and terpenes throughout the body, together with chocolate’s amazing ability to protect and replenish. The antioxidant properties of cacao has shown to lengthen the time cannabinoids are active in the blood stream, thus resulting in more prolonged and stabilized effects.
Our CBD chocolates come in two flavors: Milk & Honey and Vegan Organic Dark.
Both are made with pure Ecuadorian Arriba Criollo Cacao Beans grown in excellent conditions, premium superfood and herbal extracts, and Cannabidiol-rich hemp oil.
The Irie CBD Milk and Honey chocolate has added dairy, in the form of Ghee and Colostrum. Ghee has healthy fat-soluble vitamins that promote bone and brain health, and boost the immune system. Colostrum, the “first milk” produced by mammals after pregnancy, promotes proper digestion and a healthy digestive tract.
We also have a dairy-free, vegan-friendly chocolate. The Irie Vibrance CBD Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate, is a bold medicinal chocolate with organic coconut oil, Ceylon/Cassia cinnamon, reishi, lions mane, black maca, mucuna, royal jelly, and monk fruit extract, to sweeten.
4. Honey / Coconut Sticks
Our CBD hemp oils also come in coconut and honey sticks, which can be used to thicken or sweeten coffee, tea and other drinks, or sipped right from the tube to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Try our Irie CBD Organic Coconut Sticks to enjoy the restorative benefits of the coconut and CBD oil tandem on your hair, skin, nails and energy levels. Instead of grabbing an anti-inflammatory or pain reliever, take our Irie CBD Organic Honey Sticks. The mix of CBD oil with honey works wonders for bringing down fever or reducing pain and swelling. Safe for pets and kids, too!
If you prefer your CBD to come in a topical form, we have balms as well, still with the magic or our organic full-entourage CBD-hemp extract. With CBD topicals, you can pinpoint and target specific points of stiffness, pain or inflammation on your body. CBD is absorbable through the skin, making balms a great means of directly alleviating an ache you might have.
The Irie Therapeutic CBD Balm is infused with organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, beeswax and all various essential oils for a soothing, relieving and therapeutic effect.
For pain relief, try our Irie CBD Pain Balm With Celadrin®. Celadrin® is an all-natural proprietary ingredient, which has been clinically proven to reduce pain, rapidly promote joint health, resulting in improving flexibility and mobility. Coupled with our full-spectrum CBD-hemp extract, you’ll experience relief in no time.
6. Lip Balms
For dry and parched lips in need of moisture, we have lip balms so you can get your dose of CBD on the go.
Our balms come in three flavors: Cool Breeze, with peppermint for a cooling, minty effect; Forget Me Not, for a delectable mix of shea butter and essential oils; and Terra’s Kiss, for a tea-tree oil infused, smooth and silky feel.
7. Vaporize and Vape Oil Juice
Lastly, you can enjoy your CBD in a convenient, on-the-go form with our vaporizers and vape juice. Vaporizers function the same way as an e-pen or e-cigarette. They work by heating up liquid CBD to a point where it turns to a vapor that can be inhaled. Using CBD through this method is safe for your lungs and oral tract, since CBD vaporizers produce only vapors and no smoke.
Start with our Vaporite Sapphire Vaporizer -- an elegant, lightweight, portable pen vaporizer capable of producing quality and superior vapor in a mere matter of seconds. Use it together with our PG-Free Vape Blend, made of full-spectrum hemp extract oil, gently infused with vegetable glycerin. It contains no Propylene Glycol, a solution used in e-cigarettes that have been reported to have negative side effects.
