More about CBD – components, dosage, products, and pricing.
Unlike its relative tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not make you high. You may have already heard of the benefits of CBD or even be using it as a panacea yourself. However, not everyone understands the difference between various products or the intricacies of appropriate dosage. Getting a clearer picture of these areas is extremely helpful in getting the most out of CBD.
CBD products vary in a few ways, namely, the exact botanical compounds and cannabinoids found therein, and the extraction method involved. Another element that differentiates products is the concentration of the cannabinoids present. All these factors can influence the pricing of individual products.
CBD products are divided into three main categories: – isolates, broad spectrum, and full-spectrum. Isolates contain CBD and no other cannabinoids, while broad spectrum products are made with CBD and other naturally occurring cannabinoids, but generally not THC. Full-spectrum products include the entire range of cannabinoids, including THC, albeit in such tiny quantities that it is legal and non-psychoactive. Cedar Creek is a proponent of full-spectrum products because they offer the entourage effect. Watch this space next month to find out more about this effect and how it works.
Cannabinoid extraction methods vary, with many relying on alcohol derivatives such as butane or propane, which can leave toxic trace elements. Cedar Creek uses a premium extraction method known as the subcritical CO2 process, which is solvent-free, ensuring that extractions are of the highest purity and contain no residual toxins.
Finally, the concentration of CBD in various products has an impact on both price and dosage. Products with higher concentrations of CBD are naturally more expensive because a smaller daily dosage is required. For instance, a product with a concentration of 1000 milligrams of CBD will naturally be more expensive than one with a concentration of 500 milligrams. However, you would need to take half of the former daily to achieve the desired effect. There are different theories about correct and optimal doses of CBD, particularly in tincture form. According to the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), the maximum recommended daily allowance of CBD is 20 milligrams, however this is widely disputed, both locally and internationally. Cedar Creek tinctures come with a graduated pipette that offers an easy solution for accurate dosage and allows customers to experiment with various dosages to identify which works best for them.
In short, not all CBD products are the same, and knowing the facts can assist consumers enormously in choosing the product most beneficial to them.
