Deciding how to choose CBD oil can be a little like trying different kratom strains for their aroma or trying on different clothes for size — it’s going to be a little bit different for everyone. To begin with, the best CBD products will be those that are pure, lab-tested, and accurately labeled. Above and beyond that, the choice is completely up to you!
How to Choose CBD
To help you with decisions regarding how to choose CBD oil, we’ve put together this helpful guide. Follow each pair of decisions below and you’ll soon find the perfect product!
Topical vs. Oral
We’ve covered this issue in depth in the blog Topical Vs. Oral Types of CBD: What’s the Difference?. As we explained in the article, topical CBD is the best choice for localized issues and oral CBD is the best choice for systemic issues. An example of a localized issue could include itchy skin. An example of a systemic issue could include general achiness.
Deciding how to choose CBD oil if you have issues from both of these lists is easy — use both! Because topical cannabidiol is not absorbed into the bloodstream, you don’t have to worry about it pushing you over the limit.
Moisturizer vs. Gel
Now let’s start with topicals. At Kratora, we offer two topical CBD preparations: CBD moisturizer and CBD gel. Our moisturizer has been formulated with CBD isolate in conjunction with nourishing oils and ingredients that hydrate and soothe the skin. When thinking about how to choose CBD oil, you can ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I want a topical CBD product to support skin health or to soothe the muscles?
- Are there any specific skincare ingredients in the product that I desire along with CBD?
If the answer is that you need a product to moisturize and soothe the skin, we recommend a CBD moisturizer for regular day and night application. If the answer is that you need a CBD topical for pain in the muscles and/or joints, we recommend a CBD gel for covering a larger area with a smaller amount of product.
Flavored vs. Unflavored CBD Oils
Now, let’s move on to the issue of how to choose a CBD oil. As CBD oils are typically used orally, you’ll need to take into account other herbs and drugs you are using and whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Before deciding which oil to buy, please consult with your health practitioner about the best CBD products for your specific needs.
The CBD oils that we sell at Kratora are formulated with a 100% pure CBD isolate that contains 0.0% THC — so you won’t have to worry about it showing up on a THC-sensitive drug test or altering your mental state. In addition to our flavorless CBD oil, we also offer seven delicious flavored options, including:
- Pleasant Peppermint
- Paradise Punch
- Tiger’s Blood CBD Oil
- Forbidden Fruit CBD Oil
- Confetti Cake
- Tasty Terpenes
- Chocolate Sundae
Deciding how to choose CBD oil between flavorless and flavored is entirely personal — the active ingredients are exactly the same. Some people prefer to use flavorless CBD oil in salad dressings and cooking in general, with flavored oils being the most enjoyable for sublingual use or dropping into a cup of coffee. Take these practical suggestions to help you when the time comes to think about how to choose CBD products.
The Best CBD Products Are Independently Lab-Tested
Whether you opt for topical or oral CBD, flavored or unflavored, safety is the highest priority when deciding how to choose CBD oil. As revealed in a 2017 study, many CBD products don’t actually contain the amount of CBD that is stated on the label, so it’s imperative to choose a product that has been third-party lab-tested and has a Certificate of Authenticity that is available on request.
At Kratora, we pride ourselves on selling only top-quality, premium products that contain the amounts of active ingredients that are specified on the label. Through a proprietary process, we are able to extract a pure CBD isolate and ensure complete consistency in every single batch. Enjoy two free product samples and free U.S. ground shipping when you spend $50 or more at Kratora online. Also, when you order before 3 p.m. Eastern Time during the week, and before 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturdays, you will get fast, same-day shipping.
