3 Places To Buy CBD Oil

Today, there is a considerable amount of information on the internet detailing the potential benefits of CBD. For the most part, these reports are incredibly encouraging, especially for those looking for a natural, alternative supplement. But as a consumer ready to take a leap into the cannabidiol market, how does one navigate selecting a reliable and safe product that is worth the investment? Through this article, we will provide guidance for what to look for when purchasing CBD oil or other CBD products as well as three options of where to purchase CBD extracts.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, Cannabis Sativa L, but are grown for different purposes. Hemp – also called industrial hemp- is one of the oldest plants known to man, dating back to 8000 BC. The plant itself is typically tall and thin and cultivated to produce food, oils, paper, other textiles, and high CBD extractions. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, are bred for their psychotropic properties.

The levels of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis plants, is what legally distinguishes which plants are considered hemp and which are considered marijuana. High levels of THC (3 -15%) is found in higher concentrations in marijuana plants, whereas industrial hemp status is given to cannabis plants with THC levels less than .3%. The molecule cannabidiol (CBD) is the same regardless of which plant it was extracted from (click here for more information on hemp CBD versus marijuana CBD).  The two main differences between CBD derived from either cannabis plant is the legality and desired effect when combined with THC.

Legality

In compliance with Federal Law and the Farm Bill, under the Appropriation Acts of 2016, CBD extracted from industrial hemp (less than .3% THC) can be “transported, processed and sold” nationwide. Because of this law, consumers are able to obtain CBD products derived from hemp without acquiring a medical marijuana card or without living in a state where cannabis products are sold. CBD derived from marijuana plants are not federally legal, and are only accessible in states with pro-cannabis or CBD laws.

Desired Effect

As previously mentioned, when derived from marijuana plants, CBD is regularly paired with a higher ratio of THC than when CBD is derived from hemp plants. When a CBD product has a 1:1 ratio with THC, consumers will often feel the psychoactive effects of THC. It is advised that when purchasing a CBD product, one is aware of how much THC they will be consuming and how it will affect the desired outcome.

These two differences distinguish where you can purchase certain CBD products, which is the topic we will cover next.

Three places to buy CBD

Online Retailers

Again, in compliance with Federal Law, CBD derived from industrial hemp can be purchased nationwide. Reliable distributors such as The CBDistillery is one of the companies who offers a large variety of CBD oils, vape products, topical creams, and capsules which can be shipped directly to your front door. Unlike purchasing a product in a store, buying CBD online allows the consumer to read customer testimonials prior to making a buying decision.

 

Dispensaries

Dispensaries are government regulated retail stores, in which a person can purchase cannabis and cannabis related items for medical or recreational use. Depending on your state’s legislature regarding the use of cannabis products, you may be able to purchase CBD products from one of these local dispensaries. In a medical cannabis dispensary, only patients who have received a medical marijuana card prescribed by their doctor are legally allowed to purchase cannabis products, including CBD oil or other cannabidiol supplements. Unlike medicinal dispensaries, recreational dispensaries are available to customers who are 21 years or older but are only able to sell CBD products containing some levels of THC. For this reason, recreational dispensaries do not sell pure CBD products, like 99% pure CBD isolate powder. This may not be favorable for someone looking to use a CBD product without ingesting THC. However, many consumers prefer to see and interact with any item prior to purchasing which is an advantage to buying CBD oil in a dispensary. Looking for a dispensary near you? Click HERE.

Head Shops & Specialty Retail Stores

In addition to glass shops (head shops), specialty retail stores like nutritional stores or apothecaries carry CBD hemp oil or other hemp derived products. Similar to dispensaries, these types of stores give customers the opportunity to see the products in person as well as engage with the store associates about how to select the appropriate product for their own personal needs. One potential pitfall of purchasing CBD hemp oil from a store is that the retailer is able to sell whatever kind of product they consider “high quality”. Because of this, there are many stores taking advantage of the high demand for CBD products, and selling oils and other supplements that contain little to no CBD at all. For this reason, it is crucial to read labels and do additional research prior to purchasing CBD extracts from a nutritional store or head shop. Want to find a head shop or specialty store near you? Click HERE.

So now you know where you can buy CBD products, but what is important to know when selecting the highest quality product? We cover that next.

What is important to consider when purchasing a CBD product?

Some believe that just because you are purchasing a product from a plant, that is must be safe to use. That is not necessarily the case with CBD products. Here are four things to remember when choosing a CBD product that is safe for consumption.

It starts with the plant

The first thing to consider when selecting a product is understanding where the hemp or marijuana plant came from. Contrary to what some may think, cannabis plants grown domestically and internationally can all be safe for consumption. But, it is crucial only to choose products that are sourced from pesticide-free, NON-GMO, plants to avoid ingesting harsh chemicals.

Price does not determine quality

The FDA recently conducted a series of tests on so-called CBD oils sold on the internet. Despite manufacturer claims, many of these products contained little to no CBD. The best CBD companies are transparent about how much cannabidiol and other cannabinoids you are paying for. These companies will frequently conduct third-party tests on their products and publish the results on their website. Do some additional research on the business you are purchasing from and read their customer reviews. Are people satisfied with the quality of their products?

Not all extraction methods are safe

There are various ways of extracting cannabidiol from a cannabis plant, each with their pros and cons. CO2 and ethanol extraction are two of the most commonly used methods. CO2 extraction, for example, uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to extract, preserve, and maintain the purity of the CBD oil. According to ProjectCBD.org, ‘when well done the end product is safe, potent, and free of chlorophyll’. When choosing a CBD product, make sure the company uses a safe solvent and a verified extraction method.

Make sure the product will give you the desired effect

While cannabidiol is scientifically proven to be non-psychoactive, CBD products can be produced and sold with levels of THC that can get you high. If this is not your desired effect, it is recommended when selecting a product, to choose only those that have “non-psychoactive” effects.

Grilled Apricot, Watermelon & Arugula Salad with CBD Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette

By: The Herb Somm

 

Serving Size: 4       Cook Time: 20 minutes

 

Ingredients:

 

Salad

4 cups arugula

½ medium watermelon cut into cubes

2 – 3 small apricots

¼ red onion

2 tablespoons Feta cheese to taste

A handful of chopped mint

 

Infused Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette

½ cup balsamic vinegar

¼ cup local wildflower honey

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or kalamata cold pressed olive oil

0.25 grams CBDistillery 99% Pure CBDelicious Isolate Powder

Sea salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

 

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium heat. Rinse the apricots and slice into sixths. Put the apricot slices on a skewer and brush lightly with olive oil. Place the apricots on the grill or grill pan and cook for 1 – 2 minutes per side. Grill just enough to caramelize them, but not cook them all the way through. Remove from heat and set aside.

 

  1. Next, cut the watermelon, mint, and onion. Use a knife to cut the watermelon in half and then into cubes. Discard the rind and seeds into your compost and place the cubes into a medium bowl. Set aside. For the red onion, chop ¼ of the onion into long, thin pieces to be incorporated into the salad. Also be sure to chop the mint into small, edible pieces. Place into a bowl and set aside.

 

  1. Now it is time to make the vinaigrette. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil, and .25 grams of CBDistillery 99% Pure CBDelicious Isolate Powder (about ¼ of the jar). Mix until all of the ingredients are combined well. Season with salt and pepper. Remember, you will most likely have leftover vinaigrette to use for future salads, so be sure to have an air-tight container that will preserve the CBD dressing.

 

  1. The final step is to build your salad. In a salad bowl, add the arugula, mint, and red onion. Using a tablespoon, add your desired amount of salad dressing to the bowl and toss well. Plate the arugula mix onto four plates and top with watermelon, grilled apricots, and a sprinkle of feta cheese along with fresh ground black pepper. Pair with your favorite summer white wine, and enjoy!

As you might have heard by now, using Cannabidiol (CBD) in your cooking is a healthy way to improve your wellness routine. By using CBD as an ingredient, there are a lot of different ways you can incorporate this organic compound into different recipes. Some of our favorite culinary ideas include making an infusion, drizzling CBD oil on top of a favorite dish or adding CBD to tea or coffee.

Unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that’s derived from cannabis and hemp. You can consume large amounts of CBD and it won’t get you high. Instead, CBD acts as a powerful medicine that helps aid in the treatment of various ailments. It is also an excellent nutritional source, so we love adding CBD to our cooking.

We were lucky enough to sample two of their most popular products. The first being The CBDistillery’s 2500mg Full Spectrum Tincture (SRP $130). This incredible bottle of hemp-derived oil is pesticide-free, non-GMO, and extracted from the mature stalks and stems of the hemp plant. Blended with coconut MCT oil, this tincture is very therapeutic and providing fast relief.

We also sampled The CBDistillery’s 99+% Pure CBD Isolate Powder ($30 SRP for 1 gram). The powder is non-GMO, pesticide-free, and CO2 extracted from industrial hemp oil. The best way to use isolate powder is to use it as an ingredient. We love incorporating it into different sauces, coffee, tea, parfaits, and more. It’s also packed with therapeutic health benefits.

½ cup fresh Italian parsley

½ cup cherry tomatoes

1 tablespoon pine nuts

2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 cloves garlic

Dash of salt

Dash of black pepper

 

Spicy Shrimp Pasta

8 ounces uncooked Gigli pasta

1 pound fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 pound asparagus cut into 2-inch pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon ground red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Dash of salt

Dash of black pepper

Directions:

Image Source: The Herb Somm
  1. Beginning with the raw pesto ingredients, rinse off the leafy greens thoroughly and place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until finely chopped and pesto becomes a smooth sauce.
  2. Using a spoon, scoop the pesto sauce into a small bowl, cover with saran wrap, and place into the refrigerator until needed. 
  3.  Next, it’s time to make the pasta. Using a large pot, boil water over high heat. Add the uncooked Gigli noodles and cook according to package instructions.

  4. Using a large saucepan, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat until melted. Before adding the shrimp to the pan, dip both sides of the shrimp into a blend of ground red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. We prefer extra spicy, so make sure your shrimps are saturated with the spices. If you prefer less spicy, simply sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top. Add shrimp to the heated pan, add lemon juice, and cook until the shrimp turn pink on both sides.
  5. While the noodles are cooking, wash the asparagus and cut into 2-inch pieces. Place the asparagus into the boiling water with the pasta for the last 3 minutes of cook time. Drain in a colander and set aside.
  6. Once the shrimp have finished cooking, add the noodles and asparagus to the pan. Saute together briefly and remove from heat.
  7. Using the pesto sauce, add in 6 – 8 tablespoons depending on your preference. Add cherry tomatoes, small fresh basil leaves, and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
  8.  Serve and enjoy.

CBD Infused Steak and Vegetable Buddha Bowl
Ingredients:
STEAK

VEGETABLES

CHICKPEAS

TAHINI SAUCE

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and arrange sweet potatoes and onions on a bare baking sheet. Drizzle both with a bit of oil, making sure the flesh of the sweet potatoes are well coated. Roast for 8-10 minutes. While vegetables are roasting, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add chickpeas to a mixing bowl and toss with seasonings. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil and chickpeas and sauté, stirring frequently. If they’re browning too quickly, turn down heat. If there isn’t much browning going on, increase heat. I found 10 minutes total at slightly over medium heat was perfect. Once the chickpeas are browned and fragrant, remove from heat and set aside. Remove veggies from the oven after 8 – 10 minutes and flip sweet potatoes and add broccolini. Drizzle broccolini with a bit of olive oil and season with a pinch each salt and pepper. Bake for another 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven and add kale. Drizzle kale with a touch more oil and season with a pinch each salt and pepper. Bake for another 4-5 minutes then set aside. Prepare sauce by adding tahini, agave, lemon juice and CBD Isolate to a mixing bowl and whisking to combine. Add hot water until a pourable sauce is formed. Set aside. To serve: Divide vegetables between serving bowls and top with chickpeas + tahini sauce. Top with grilled steak. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep for a few days in the fridge. There will most likely be leftover sauce, which can be added to leftovers or other meals.

40 million Americans suffer from an anxiety disorder, making them one of the most common mental health illnesses in the country. Millennials have even been dubbed the anxiety generation, with numerous studies showing that this generation suffers from anxiety at a much higher rate than others. Today, you do not have to be diagnosed with one of the eight categorized disorders to be plagued by the most common symptoms of anxiety. Worried about money, work, friends, family, love, your health, etc.? You may find yourself sweating, crying, heart beating rapidly, with the inability to control your breathing. These are among the most common, unpleasant symptoms of anxiety.

Luckily, there are numerous, natural ways to subside the effects of feeling anxious, all of which have little to no side effects. Here are 5 of our favorites.

5 Ways to Relieve Anxiety Naturally

Meditation

Mindful meditation is the practice of training the brain to stay in the moment. One of the largest contributors to anxiety is the inability to rid the mind of thoughts from the past or fears regarding the future. Dr. Elizabeth Hoge, a psychiatrist at the Center for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Disorders explains, “People with anxiety have a problem dealing with distracting thoughts that have too much power. They can’t distinguish between a problem-solving thought and a nagging worry that has no benefit.” Mindful meditation, which can be practiced at meditation studios or from the comfort of your home teaches the brain to refocus on the present when thoughts are wandering. Want to try mindful meditation? Check out Dr. Ronald Siegal’s free online courses.

Hemp Oil

What is CBD Hemp oil? Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis plants. Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the compound associated with marijuana’s psychoactive properties, CBD does not cause a “high” effect and can offer relief and benefits without the disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria. Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with the endocannabinoid system, a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules in the human body. This system helps to regulate pleasure, pain, mood, and stress response among other things. When CBD products like CBD oil are used, the cannabinoid levels in the endocannabinoid system reach homeostasis, allowing for a healthy stress response.

Exercise

Get up and move! Science has proven time and time again that people who are physically active have lower rates of anxiety and depression compared to those who are sedentary. Exercise helps to overcome anxiety symptoms in several ways. First, inactivity of the body creates tension which can lead to symptoms of anxiety. The next time you are feeling stressed, go for a brisk walk, even if it is only for 10 minutes. Additionally, exercise promotes the production of serotonin and decreases the amount of cortisol in the body. Both of which aid in the body’s overall levels of stress, tension, and fatigue. Regardless if you choose to practice yoga, join a gym, participate in a team sport or just walk your dog, getting into a routine of daily exercise will avoid symptoms of inactive anxiety as well as promote a healthy stress response.

Practice Gratitude

As previously mentioned, feelings of anxiety often stem from overwhelming negative thoughts or concerns about certain circumstances going on or could potentially happen in your life. The practice of feeling grateful is an incredibly simple way of diverting your negative thoughts into something positive. Do you have a roof over your head? A family and/or group of friends that love you? A talent or characteristic that makes you unique? The next time you are overwhelmed by the negatives in your life, redirect your thoughts to those things you are grateful for. In fact, according to one study conducted in 2005, making a daily habit of writing down what you are thankful for, will contribute to your overall happiness immediately as well as in the days and weeks after.

Limit caffeine and alcohol

Both caffeine and alcohol are stimulants which can stimulate your “fight or flight” response making your anxiety worse. Some people with social anxiety will turn to alcohol, not realizing that this stimulant can worsen the side effects of anxiety. This is the same for caffeine. One too many cups of coffee in the morning can perpetuate those uneasy feelings that stem from feeling anxious. Rather than reaching for a caffeinated latte in the morning, try sipping on some camomile tea, which the UK’s University of Nottingham Medical School has determined to decrease anxiety and even fight depression significantly.

 Rave Reviews explains, they researched the 20 Best CBD Oil Products on the market, so their viewers can make an informed choice when purchasing CBD. The focus was on the 20 companies you’re likely to find when you search for CBD online.

In order to rate the companies from best to worst, Rave Reviews looked at four categories:

So how did The CBDistillery™ Full Spectrum Tincture rank? Here is Rave’s review:

“With its geometric logo and masculine font, this company’s product line would be right at home in a skate shop. Tinctures all come in 15 milliliter bottles, with CBD content moving from 250 to 500 to 1000 milligrams per bottle.

Prices are quite impressive, ranging from $20 to just $60 for a whole 1000mg of CBD. It’s worth noting that all of their tinctures (as well as nearly every other item on the site) appear to be currently on sale. Unlike most other companies, they also include 3rd party lab results right on their product pages, so you know the quality you’re getting.

While the company’s tinctures contain full spectrum CBD, CBDistillery does offer CBD isolate in powder and crystal form. They also sell products compatible with vape pens, topical creams, capsules, dabbing options, CBD for pets, and hats and shirts.”

We recently conducted a survey where we asked CBDistillery™ customers, “what is the primary benefit you received from CBDistillery™ products?” Not to our surprise, we received a variety of answers, no two entirely alike. What immediately sparked my attention, were the comments from customers stating something similar to, “I didn’t get any relief” and “it helped a little but not as much as I’d hoped.” The majority of the feedback we receive from CBDistillery™ customers on a day-to-day basis is how CBD has changed their lives for the better. So why does CBD impact some and not others? Why does cannabis affect people differently?

Cannabis Plant Study

To get some answers, I took to the Internet and found several studies about why cannabis products affect users differently. Apparently, I am not the first person to ask this question. Even the ‘father of THC,’ Rafael Mechoulam was curious about how this newly discovered molecule would affect different people. Thus, one evening he invited over a few of his friends for some cake, which little did they know, was laced with 10mg of pure THC. A few of his friends felt ‘strange, in a different world,’ while some couldn’t stop talking or giggling. While the scientist now understood the cannabis compound, THC does, in fact, cause different reactions, it wasn’t until years later that we would figure out why. Here is a look as to why all cannabis (marijuana or hemp derived) products affect people differently.

Genetics

About 20% of the population has good endocannabinoid genetics. These people were born with a genetic mutation that increases the level of endocannabinoids and levels of anandamide (the so-called bliss molecule) naturally occurring in their system.Cannabis Genetics As a whole, the endocannabinoid system is partially responsible for regulating sleep, appetite, mood, motor control, immune function, pleasure, pain, reproduction and fertility, memory and temperature regulation. When someone consumes cannabis, the cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, replace the naturally occurring endocannabinoids in your body. Thus, if you are among the lucky few that have this genetic mutation, you are most likely less inclined to feel the effects of CBD because your body already naturally produces a similar result.

Men vs. Women

Cannabidiol products affect men and women differently. Research shows that estrogen makes females more sensitive to cannabis. That time of the month? Washington State University found that women are impacted more by THC a day or two before ovulation, because of the peak in estrogen levels.

Unique Biochemistry

Biochemistry, the study of chemical substances and vital processes occurring in living organisms is yet another explanation as to why people react differently to CBD products. No two individuals have the exact biochemistry make up, which affects the way substances metabolize throughout our system. The health of one’s endocannabinoid system plays a significant role in this. As previously mentioned, the human body naturally produces endocannabinoids. Things like diet, stress, and overall lifestyle influences endocannabinoid levels. When consuming cannabis products, you are increasing endocannabinoid levels. For individuals who have deprived levels, cannabis consumption will most likely produce a favorable experience, whereas someone with healthy endocannabinoid levels might not “feel” the effects of CBD or other marijuana products.

Overall Health

Someone who is using cannabis products to treat symptoms for a disease or disorder is going to have a very different experience than someone using cannabis recreationally. When someone is fighting off an ailment or illness, that individual’s biochemistry and endocannabinoid levels are altered, thus, potentially producing a different effect than if that person’s endocannabinoid levels were replenished.

Tolerance

It is relatively well-known that over time and continued use, one will most likely build a tolerance to THC. Yet, in one study conducted in 2011, findings suggest that one may not build a tolerance to CBD.  However, more research needs to be done to prove this theory.
