Beginner's Guide to Cannabidiol (CBD): ​5 Best CBD Products for First-Time CBD Users

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a new type of health supplement that you can now find in many stores. Local dispensaries have the most variety, but now you can get specific kinds of products like skin care or bath products where you would normally shop for regular items.

Not everyone has completely warmed to trying CBD products, in part because they may seem odd or foreign, or even difficult, to use. If you want an introduction to CBD that’s simple and easy to use, you can start with these five CBD products:

1. CBD Softgels

Everyone is probably familiar with taking pills by the time they reach adulthood. You may take vitamins that you swallow, over-the-counter pain pills, prescription medication or birth control. You can try taking CBD softgel capsules from a dispensary like Joy Organics if you’re used to taking pills.

2. CBD Bath Salts

If you like to use beauty products like bath bombs, bath salts or other products, you likely already know how to use CBD bath salts. All you do is run a hot bath and mix in your usual amount of bath salts, then lie in the bath to absorb the minerals, which may improve your mental and physical state.

3. CBD Tea

If you are a tea enthusiast, you can get bags of green herbal tea with ground hemp leaves mixed in. This doesn’t change or take away from the flavor, but it does allow you to steep the leaves to release its compounds and medical benefits along with other ingredients you like in your tea.

4. CBD Gummies

CBD edibles are one of the easiest types of products to use. They come premade, so all you have to do is eat it. There are numerous types of edible you can get to suit any kind of texture or flavor you like, but gummies are the most popular option. Each gummy is sized to fit a particular dose, so you just take one or two pieces at a time. This is especially beneficial for people who take chewable vitamins or medication because they have difficulty swallowing pills.

5. CBD Moisturizer

If you want to use CBD for your skin, you may want to consider trying a CBD moisturizer. CBD is loaded with antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation and remove free radicals. It may help smooth out wrinkles and make skin look brighter and younger. CBD moisturizers also come loaded with omega fatty acids, which help hydrate your skin so it doesn’t get dry, irritated or itchy.

These are by no means the only kinds of CBD products you can get, they are just the simplest and easiest to use. You don’t need to worry about learning a new way of calculating a dose, mixing it together with something else, or using a new kind of product.
