The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued warning letters to two companies for selling products labeled as containing cannabidiol (CBD) in ways that violate the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). Specifically, the warning letters address the illegal marketing of unapproved drugs labeled as containing CBD. The companies are Honest Globe and Biolyte Laboratories.

The letter sent to Honest Globe referenced the products “ELIXICURE ORIGINAL PAIN RELIEF with CBD” (roll-on and pump versions) and “ELIXICURE LAVENDER PAIN RELIEF with CBD” (roll-on and pump versions) (hereinafter referred to as “ELIXICURE PAIN RELIEF with CBD” products). The “ELIXICURE PAIN RELIEF with CBD” products were labeled as containing cannabidiol (CBD) and require no prescription.

The letter read, “Your “ELIXICURE PAIN RELIEF with CBD” products are unapproved new drugs introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce in violation of sections 505(a) and 301(d) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. 355(a) and 331(d). Furthermore, your “ELIXICURE PAIN RELIEF” products are misbranded drugs introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce in violation of sections 502(a), 502(ee), and 301(a) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. 352(a), 352(ee), and 331(a).” The FDA also said that although CBD was listed as an inactive ingredient in the labels of the “ELIXICURE PAIN RELIEF with CBD” products, the product labeling clearly represented CBD as an active ingredient, which is a component of a drug intended to furnish pharmacological activity or other direct effects in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, or to affect the structure or function of the body. Ultimately an inactive ingredient should not exert pharmacological effects.

In addition to the marketing, Honest Globe was cited for production issues. The letter stated, “Your Quality Unit (QU) lacked control over your topical over-the-counter drug manufacturing operations and failed to ensure that you had adequate procedures. In your response, you committed to working with your contract laboratory to investigate the cited OOS results and future OOS results. Your response is inadequate because you did not address your responsibilities to investigate potential manufacturing deficiencies that may have led to the OOS results. Your response also failed to evaluate batches with OOS test results that had been distributed and were still within expiry.”

Honest Globe also got itself in trouble with claiming its products to be registered with the FDA . “To state that any drug product is “FDA registered” is inaccurate; drugs are subject to listing with FDA, not registration. Moreover, registration of an establishment or listing of a drug does not denote approval of the establishment, the drug, or any other drugs of the establishment, nor does it mean that a product may be legally marketed.”

Biolyte Laboratories LLC was the other company that received a letter. The company made medical claims about its products. Examples given were  “Silver Gel,” – used as an antimicrobial to help treat minor skin wounds, burns, infections . . .” “Silver Gel” – “USEFUL FOR WOUNDS, BURNS, BANDAGES, AND MORE . . . TOPICALLY USED AGAINST INFECTIONS . . . TOPICALLY USED AGAINST SEVERAL SKIN CONDITIONS (Hives, Rashes, eczema, diaper rash).”

“Based on the above labeling claims, your products “(b)(4) Therapeutic Pain Gel,” “(b)(4) Pain Relief Cream,” and “(b)(4) Magnesium Oil Spray” are drugs intended for use as external analgesics. We are not aware of any adequate and well-controlled clinical studies in the published literature that support a determination that “(b)(4) Therapeutic Pain Gel,” “(b)(4) Pain Relief Cream”, or “(b)(4) Magnesium Oil Spray” are generally recognized as safe and effective (GRASE) for use under the conditions suggested, recommended, or prescribed in their labeling.”

The FDA has not approved any over-the-counter (OTC) drugs containing CBD, and none of these products meet the requirements to be legally marketed without an approved new drug application. The letters explain that, as CBD has known pharmacological effects on humans, with demonstrated risks, it cannot be legally marketed as an inactive ingredient in OTC drug products that are not reviewed and approved by the FDA. Additionally, the letters cite substandard manufacturing practices, including failure to comply with current good manufacturing practices.

The FDA said in a statement that the products that are the subject of the warning letters issued today have not gone through the FDA drug approval process and are considered unapproved new drugs. There have been no FDA evaluation of whether these unapproved drug products are effective for the uses manufacturers to claim, what an appropriate dose might be, how they could interact with FDA-approved drugs or other products, or whether they have dangerous side effects or other safety concerns.

A vital piece of information to know before using any of this ancient medicine is that the cannabis plant has both male and female parts, and both of them have very different chemical components. While it is basically the same thing, it may have various effects on animals.

So, you need to be cautious before deciding to buy the best product. It has been proven that male and female parts of the cannabis plant can differentiate. But an important thing to know is that this percentage is not safe for cats and can cause a lot of adverse side effects.

For example, the female part of the marijuana plant can contain from five to twenty percent of THC. And some more exclusive grades can contain up from twenty-five to thirty percent THC. But in order to create a batch of cannabinoids in some countries, the THC level has to be a maximum of 0.3 percent. That is the dose that has been tested in humans, and it has been proven that they will not get the high effect.

If you want to look more into the regularities of THC level in this product, click on the following link for more info https://www.fda.gov/news-events/public-health-focus/fda-regulation-cannabis-and-cannabis-derived-products-including-cannabidiol-cbd.

The pros for using CBD on cats

While it is still a hot topic nowadays, there have been actual studies that confirm the beneficial effects that come from using these kinds of products on your furry friend. Those effects may help in reducing aggression, anxiety, multiple infections, loss of appetite, loss of energy, inflammation, joint pain, allergies, seizures, tumors, and cancer.

If your cat has had health issues, it is better to first consult your veterinarian before concluding any rash decisions. In the worst case, it may cause some minors issues, and a lot of people are mixing the given prescription with this new type of medicine. But as always, it is best to get some advice from a doctor. 

What is the correct dosage of CBD oil for Cats?

If you are wondering what the proper dose is, then you’re not alone. The internet is filled with information on different forums, and you can see different ranges. If you want to play it safe, you can start with a minimal dosage that can vary from one to five milligrams per 10 pounds. 

For cats, it is recommended to start the dosage with the written on the label so that you can test the response of the animal. If the cat does not respond at all, then it is better to increase the dosage a bit so you can see if there are any improvements.

The weight of your cat is also significant. If a cat weighs 5 kilograms, it can absorb up to 15 milligrams. The effects on a cat that weighs more can be different than the one that weighs, for example, 3 kilograms. When your cat ingests the treat, it is crucial to know how much CBD is actually in there.

Let’s say your cat has more significant health issues. Then the dosage and concentration of CBD should be more significant than the ones with smaller health problems. If you want to read more about the proper dosage of CBD for your cat, be sure to check out this link.

What is the best type of CBD to be given to your cat?

The effects it may have on your cat may be different depending on the product and you should always be careful with what is best for your cat. But worry not, because almost every product you decide to buy will benefit your pet and almost surely help them in reducing health risks.

Long story-short, raw CBD is a pure distillate component that contains only cannabidiol and no other chemical compounds. Hemp oil is a special CBD treats distillate that is extracted from hemp plants and has less than 0.3 percent THC. Full-spectrum oil is extracted from hemp or cannabis (marijuana) which contains more terpenes and cannabinoids.

In conclusion, what you want is something that works. There are new discoveries coming out every day. This topic is still very debatable, but as time goes by, more people will be looking into this and will be exploring more ways to combine these kinds of products and their uses with everything else.

CBD oil is a diluted form of cannabidiol, a chemical compound that derives from the cannabis plant. Diluting the CBD with a carrier oil makes CBD oil. By infusing this with other ingredients, manufacturers can create bath bombs or bath salts. 

Is there anything more indulgent than a warm bath? Whether you hit the tub to wash up, unwind mentally, ease stiff muscles, or promote a good night’s sleep, you know all about the healing power of a good soak. But if you thought taking a bath couldn’t get any more relaxing, think again. A CBD bath might just be the ultimate way to soothe your mind, body, and soul.

Bath bombs and bath salts can benefit the skin and provide a relaxing bathing experience. Some of these products may contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil, which may have some extra benefits for the skin.

Even if you’ve been skeptical about trying CBD in any form, a soak of aromatic, CBD-infused bath salts could be the perfect way to experience CBD’s effects without ingesting it, and while doing something you already enjoy (lounging in the tub).

CBD Bath Benefits 

So what does this calming, homeostasis-promoting, cannabis-derived plant substance have to do with bath time?

The heat improves CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits. 

Among other benefits, CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. “CBD is best used for inflammation, which is really at the root of any problem you have with your skin, whether it’s eczema or pain. Dissolving a CBD-infused product, like bath salts or a bath bomb, into hot water and soaking in it helps expedite the process of CBD absorption into the skin and bloodstream through the pores.

CBD could make that relaxing bath even more relaxing. 

Baths deliver so many minerals, promote healing, and are great for soreness after a workout. The biggest benefits [of a CBD bath] would be to relax and decompress, to ease musculoskeletal pain and inflammation, and to soothe angry skin conditions.

CBD gets absorbed more efficiently through skin. 

Compared to taking a few drops of CBD tincture orally (say, under your tongue), letting it absorb topically tends to have quicker, more direct results. As with any nutrient or ingredient applied to the skin, absorption into the bloodstream will be faster than with oral ingestion.

It’s beneficial in so many different ways. 

The reason CBD is miraculous is not because of what it does (it’s not a cure-all), but because it is such a malleable ingredient. It’s a compound that works on so many different systems of your body. It touches on anxiety, mood, sleep disorders—all these different variants of your life.

It’s a natural, plant-derived ingredient that works in conjunction with other soothing bath products. 

Don’t think of a CBD bath as dunking yourself into a tub of chemicals. CBD works naturally and subtly and in tandem with your chosen bath product’s various therapeutic ingredients. For instance,  Bath Salts includes a pore-opening and detoxifying sulfur, which allows all the product’s other minerals (like Dead Sea salt and magnesium) and herbal extracts (including marjoram, yarrow, rosemary, and CBD) to enter pores quicker and deeper.

How to Use Them

CBD bath bombs, aka hemp bath bombs, usually clock in at a range of 25 to 100 milligrams or more per unit. If you’re new to incorporating CBD at bath time, start with one in the low-to-mid-range (between 25 and 50 milligrams per bath bomb) and see how you feel. If you’re looking for a more dramatic effect, you can bump up to a product with 100 milligrams of CBD, but expect to pay more for the higher cannabinoid content. In any case, using a CBD bath bomb is totally safe — you can’t OD on CBD, and it won’t give you any psychoactive or “high” feeling. Using a CBD bath bomb is easy peasy. Draw yourself a warm bath, drop in your bath bomb, and enjoy the fizziness as the product dissolves. Immerse yourself for at least 20 minutes so that your skin can soak up as many of the beneficial cannabinoids and minerals as possible. This form of CBD isn’t edible, though, so make sure not to splash your CBD bath water into your eyes or mouth.


CBD bath bombs and salts may moisturize the skin and reduce pimples while providing a relaxing experience. There is a range of CBD bath bombs and salts available on the market. These contain different amounts and types of CBD, essential oils, and fragrances.  A person may want to consider these factors when deciding which bath bomb or bath salts will best suit them.

According to a careful estimate, the marijuana market is expected to reach $90.4 billion by 2026. In 2020, the marijuana industry was valued at $20.5 billion. These numbers clearly show that Marijuana is going to lead the world of e-cigarettes in the coming years. So, if you are wondering how it will take over the industry, you have come to the right place because this blog is just the thing that you need to read to know about the future of both Marijuana and the vape industry. 

Why Marijuana is becoming more popular?

Marijuana activists have a lot to throw light on the pressing issue of the war on drugs. They have made it a point that Marijuana is not a drug that should remain illegal. Therefore, all the people who are in prisons serving their sentences related to marijuana felonies should be released. 

The issue has become a highlight after the activists pointed out racial discrimination by the state on the war on drugs. Therefore, it is not a domestic issue anymore, and it has been the highlight in the past few years. 

The marijuana activists highlight the problems created by Marijuana being illegal. Researchers have been busy discovering the amazing medicinal uses of Marijuana and its potential to treat chronic diseases like cancer. Therefore, awareness regarding the use of Marijuana is doing the trick, and many people are socially accepting it. The recently elected president of the United States of America, Joe Biden, made it a point in his election campaign that when he comes to power, he’ll work on the regulations to declare Marijuana legal and end the racial discrimination in the name of the war on drugs. 

All these factors are contributing to the popularity of the marijuana industry, and the indicators are very obvious that soon it’ll be the most growing industry of the decade. 

What Will Happen to the Electronic Cigarette Industry?

Many industry specialists speculate that the popularity or Marijuana might be the end of the electronic cigarette industry just like e-cigarettes put a mark on the tobacco industry. There is a reasonable substance in this argument; however, it is still far from true that the e-cigarette industry will face an ultimate demise due to the rise of Marijuana. 

The United Kingdom is supposedly the biggest market of e-cigarettes in the world, and they are passing regulations to make it legal all across the states to end the use of tobacco. It means that the vape industry is still evolving, and the claims that it’ll be out of business soon are very immature. However, there is no denying the fact that the vape industry needs to evolve and adapt to the marijuana industry; otherwise, it’ll not be long before e-cigarettes become a thing of the past.

How Can the Vape Industry Cope with The Emerging Marijuana Industry?

All the above discussion gives rise to a very simple question: What vape industry should prevent its doom? The answer is quite simple. Vape and electronic cigarette companies need to adapt to the changing world. For example, companies such as V2 are already adapting to this change by introducing CBD infused products and marijuana-friendly e-cigarettes.

Vape companies need to keep it in mind while launching new products to look for CBD products more than nicotine. It means that vape juices will need an upgrade if they want to be relevant in the market. Another important thing to keep in mind is that there is going to be a lot of competition, and the only way to survive it is to go green.

Different strains of Marijuana are used for different reasons. Therefore, vape companies should provide an all-inclusive solution to the customers looking for their choice strain. 

The vape saloons will also need to adapt to these changes, and they have to provide all marijuana strains and their e-cigarette variants under one roof so that they don’t grow out of business in the coming years. Apart from all this, the different states also need to realize the rising popularity of Marijuana among the masses and many medical uses of marijuana and pass regulations in the larger public interests.

Are you currently using, or are you planning to use CBD products? How much do you know about it? Do you know where it came from? Do you think it’s legal? Let’s find out.

There are so many things that you need to know before you decide to use a product. You need to consider the price, the ingredients, etc. That is the right thing to do! Whenever you want to put something in and on your body, whether internal or external, you still have to be sure it’s not going to harm you. 

History Of Medical Marijuana

It was recorded that as early as 2737 B.C., Emperor Shen Neng of China already started using cannabis tea to treat gout, malaria, rheumatism, and poor memory. Ancient physicians had also prescribed marijuana for any pain.

This means that even though marijuana was declared illegal for many years and recently made legal due to “recent studies” claiming marijuana contains compounds that can be used for certain diseases, we still cannot say that it’s a recent discovery. It had been used already since ancient times!

In 1914, it was declared that the use of marijuana is a crime. Outright prohibitions began in the late 1920s. 

According to this site, In 1833, a twenty-four-year-old Edinburgh, W.B. O’Shaughnessy, did a lot of research and introduced Cannabis to Modern Western Medicine. 


Where Can You Get CBD?

We all know the drill. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance that exists in the cannabis Sativa plant, a family of marijuana. CBD, unlike the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana, does not appear to have any intoxicating effects. What makes CBD such a wonder product is that it has all the health benefits of cannabis sans the delusions part. Plus, it’s legal in most states. 

If you have Epileptic seizures, anxiety, arthritis or joint problems, digestion issues, allergies, general pain, regulate appetite, inflammation, and alike, it is said that CBD can help you. There are a variety of products made that suit your needs. You may check this site https://cheefbotanicals.com/cbd-products/all-cbd-products/ for more information.  Other benefits include antidepressant; may fight cancer; helps with heart health, and lower blood sugar. However, it is said that there is no enough scientific evidence supporting these claims. 

Cannabidiol may be taken in several ways. There are through inhalation of vapors, through an aerosol spray, and by mouth like pills, edibles, gummies, alcoholic beverages, supplements, and even coffees! There are also CBD oils and beauty products, and a lot more. 

There are plenty of CBD products being marketed online. Some are also available in pharmacies at selected places. 

Are CBD Products Legal?

In 2018, growing hemp was legalized. However, though it’s a federal law, each state still has its right to ban them if they want to. 

California, Colorado, Michigan, Nevada, and Washington are several of the states where marijuana is completely legal. In these States, only CBD is legal: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, North Carolina, and Oklahoma. There are also States where marijuana is fully illegal: Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota. 

While federal law made growing hemp and buying CBD products legal, there is still a provision that it should not have more than 0.3 percent THC. Also, it still needs to follow the standards, laws, and regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration.

Obviously, if you were to be redhanded in states where marijuana is illegal, you’ll be subjected to serious consequences.

For example, in Virginia, possession of medical marijuana is technically illegal. If you were seen having it, you are given a chance to give your “affirmative defense”—a legal term that means the person convicted must be able to have his valid registration to avoid penalties, fines, or imprisonment.

If you’ve grown wearisome of old-age methods of consuming CBD, you will absolutely love CBD gummies. They are like squishy candies that are sweet and flavorsome but are jam packed with cannabinoids. Compared to vapes and tinctures, it is a unique but more fun way to introduce this phytonutrient in your system. 

You can also find gummies infused with other powerful nutrients such as apple cider vinegar, spirulina, turmeric, and so many more. Since they are a unique type of CBD and are available in many blends, it is overwhelmingly challenging to find the right match for you. 

So, follow our guide to find out what you should look for in CBD gummies. 

  • The Right Types  

Not all CBD gummies are formulated the same, some are highly potent, whereas others come with better flavoring. Here are the three most common types currently available in the market: 

  • High-Dosage Gummies

On average gummy usually contains 5 to 10 mg of CBD — a pretty decent dosage. CBDfx, on the other hand, harbors 50 mg/ serving, which is equivalent to a full-day requirement of CBD. If you are looking for a highly potent gummy, this is your product. 

  • Gourmet Gummies

For candy-lovers who seek a burst of sweet flavors, gourmet gummies are worth giving a shot. However, they come in a huge flavor spectrum, which includes peach rings, sour gummies, fruity flavors, and so much more. They are formulated to obscure CBD’s flavor, giving you a more fun experience.  

  • Nutrient-Enhanced Gummies

It is a great concept to blend flavorings, CBD, minerals, and vitamins to create a full package of nutrients. Such edibles are becoming increasingly popular for providing such a delightful way to fill nutrient gaps. So, you couldn’t be happier with this type of CBD, however, they are slightly more expensive than other types. 

  • CBD Source 

CBD is extracted differently, giving us three distinct types based on purity level — isolates, broad-spectrum, and full-spectrum. If you are looking for the purest forms of CBD, then isolates are what we recommend. They are devoid of terpenes and volatile organic impurities, making the product perfect for medicinal purposes. 

Broad-spectrum CBD lacks THC and contains a high concentration of cannabinoids. On the opposite, full-spectrum CD offers different cannabinoids as well as THC, which is why it is known for triggering psychoactive effects.  

  • Ingredients 

Since we are talking about edibles, there is more than just CBD involved in the formula. Some companies use preservatives to make them suitable for long-term use. Also, there are many artificial ingredients and sweeteners to enhance flavorsome hints in the servings. 

Those who suffer from allergies, or are following a strict vegan diet, should stay away from ingredients like fructose corn syrup. Therefore, read the ingredient list thoroughly to watch out for unwanted compounds before getting a bottle of CBD gummies. 

Not always artificial elements are involved in the formulation as 100% organic CBD gummies are also available. Everything from the natural flavoring to the color is extracted from organic sources in such ideal products. 

  • Optimum Potency 

As mentioned earlier, the potency of CBD gummies does not remain the same for all types. For instance, a 10 mg CBD isolate would not be as potent as a 10 mg full-spectrum CBD. Also, the amount a person should intake in a single day varies, depending on the type of health condition you are aiming to treat. For serious problems like chronic pain and stress, you may have to consume more than usual to enjoy optimal effects. 

However, if you are not sure of the dosage, then it is best to experiment with a little amount first. Starting from point zero will give you a rough idea of how much CBD your body desires.  

  • Third-Party Testing 

At the moment, CBD gummies are not FDA approved, meaning they don’t guarantee the quality, effectiveness, and safety of these products. Still, if you have to reap maximum benefits without having to suffer from detrimental side effects, it is best to research the product’s quality. 

You can check whether the ingredients have been inspected for impurities such as molds, pesticides, heavy metals, and other unwanted compounds. Also, you can compare the lab results from COA with the claimed amount of THC and CBD to verify the concentration. 

  • A Delicious Flavor 

Since they are candies, they are meant to be delicious — that’s why they are formulated in the first place. They come in a myriad of flavor options, including fruity, sour, chocolate, flowery hints, etc., depending on the ingredients. 

The most popular range of flavors is the fruity spectrum — apple, strawberry, pineapple, pomegranate, and so on. However, manufacturers have discovered a unique blend of flavors as well to attract the crowd, giving them something different to try. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that you will be introducing a mouthful of happiness in your body, which is an experience worth having.

Vaping CBD infused juices has become an extremely popular way to consume CBD in the UK and around the world. While the idea of vaping was something that most people had not even considered a few years ago, there is an ever-growing number of people looking to try CBD vapes for themselves.

The idea of vaping is often associated with being a potentially healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. The comparison between smoking and vaping has put some people off in the past, but vaping is increasingly being linked to CBD and its wide-reaching health benefits.

Products such as CBD vape oil and CBD vape juice provide a fun and flavor-packed way to consume CBD on a regular basis with ease. When looking to buy CBD vape oil in the UK, there are many different options, both flavored and unflavored.

The wide range of choices when it comes to CBD vape products is just one of the reasons that it has become many people’s number one way to use CBD. With so many different flavor options available, it is not always easy to tell which offers the best experience. Some say this is the best CBD Oil in UK. What is the best flavor of CBD vape juice in the UK, and is it the most critical factor?

Flavored CBD vape juices

One of the main reasons that vaping has become a popular alternative to smoking is as a result of the range of fun flavor options that are available. Whether infused with CBD or not, many people enjoy the experience of inhaling flavored vapor in much the same way they might enjoy a candy bar.

In the UK, there is an almost endless list of options when it comes to flavored vapes. From sweet berry oils to sweet cotton candy, if you can think of a flavor, the odds are that you will be able to find it as a CBD vape liquid.

There are certain flavors that are easier to find than others, and there are common flavors that can be found across most UK brands. Vanilla, citrus, mint, and cinnamon are popular options and tend to be much easier to find than more ambitious flavors like “birthday cake.”

Flavored CBD vape oils and e-liquids can be broken down into two main groups: those that contain natural flavorings and those that have been packed with artificial flavorings. When purchasing CBD vape products, the difference between these two groups is worth considering.

Vape products that use naturally occurring terpenes and flavorings to create their unique flavor profile are generally going to offer a higher quality experience. Products made using artificial flavorings might provide a stronger flavor but also mean subjecting your body to artificial ingredients that might not always be the best option.

Unflavored CBD vape juices

Not all CBD vape e-liquids and juices are flavored. Some brands, like Provacan, opt to create e-liquids that provide a much more natural experience.

Unflavored vape liquids offer all of the potential health benefits of vaping CBD only without the lingering aftertaste that some people can find annoying. The lack of flavoring also means that vape oils can be made using fewer ingredients, which some people believe to be better for the body.

Why use CBD vape juices?

There is a great deal of interest within both the scientific and natural wellness communities to understand the full effects on the body when consuming CBD on a regular basis.

There have been a number of studies focused on the specific effects of CBD and how it can be used as a more natural treatment option. One study, in particular, found that CBD can be used to help manage the effects of anxiety and, in turn, also improve the quality of sleep. It is also thought that CBD can be used as a natural way to manage pain.

More generalized studies have also found that using CBD on a regular and consistent basis has a lot of the same benefits on the body as taking regular vitamins.

There are many ways to incorporate CBD into one’s diet, but few offer the same flavor-packed experience as CBD vape liquids. Vaping is also acceptable in most social situations, making it something that can be enjoyed throughout the day rather than something that requires discretion, as many other CBD predictions do.

Is Flavor Important?

When looking to try CBD vape e-liquid for the first time, a common question is whether the e-liquids and juices’ flavor actually matters. The main difference between flavored and unflavored vape products is that additional ingredients are needed to create individual flavors.

For some people, the extra flavorings don’t make a difference. There are, however, many people that believe CBD should be consumed as simply as possible, with as few extra ingredients as possible. There is, of course, no consistent scientific evidence to prove that either view is the correct one.

Ultimately, the flavor of CBD vape oil does not impact its effectiveness. The different flavors within vape liquids are ultimately there to make them more enjoyable to consume. While one person may prefer an unflavored liquid, another may find that vaping is much more appealing when it involves a burst of bright, fruity flavor.

CBD capsules are often marketed as being a modern and simplistic alternative to traditional CBD oil tinctures. CBD capsules remove many of the factors that can put people off trying CBD supplements. As a result, they have quickly become one of the fastest-growing niches within the CBD industry.

There are many reasons why people are increasingly looking for products like CBD capsules. There have been a number of studies focusing on how regular use of CBD can help to improve both general health and even manage specific health issues.

With an ever growing number of people turning to CBD supplements – including capsules – the industry has responded. Now, one can find a variety of CBD capsule options available across a range of online and retail markets.

Knowing where to find the best CBD capsules and soft gels can feel a little daunting at first. We have put together a guide to some of the best CBD capsules on the market to help you discover the benefits of CBD supplements.

#1 PureKana – Best for targeted effects 

PureKana has taken the idea of using CBD capsules as a general supplement one step further, offering a range of capsules designed for specific effects. PureKana CBD capsules include an immune boost capsule, AM caffeine capsule, and PM melatonin capsule.

One of the things that PureKana has done really well is the ability to use different capsules throughout the day for a truly personalized CBD intake. Not only do the other capsules available trigger slightly different effects, but they also contain varying amounts of CBD tailored to match their effects.

There are currently four different capsules to choose from, providing a range of different combinations and effects to match an individual’s specific and health goals. PureKana’s general purpose CBD capsules are also available in two different strengths for daily, all-around support.

#2 Premium Jane – Fast-acting CBD soft gels 

Premium Jane has two different strength CBD soft gels to choose from, and both offer the brand’s high quality organic formula. Premium Jane has become a popular CBD brand thanks to their continued commitment to only using the very best organic ingredients possible.

Using their rich full-spectrum CBD blend, Premium Jane has crafted both 25mg and 40mg soft gels options giving their customers control over the amount of CBD they consume at any one time. By using full-spectrum CBD, Premium Jane has been able to pack a healthy and natural blend of cannabinoids and terpenes into each fast-acting soft gel.

#3 Provacan – Best full-spectrum CBD capsules 

Provacan is known for their simplistic approach to CBD, working to create products that deliver effective results using as few ingredients as possible. One of Provacan’s CBD capsules’ defining features is that they offer an experience remarkably similar to their CBD oil tinctures.

Provacan CBD capsules are made using the same base formula as their tinctures, meaning the two products can be used interchangeably. Across both oils and capsules, Provacan uses their rich Cannabis Sativa (L) extract, which retains all of the healthy cannabinoids found within hemp plants.

The HPMC capsules coating used in all of Provacan’s capsules ensures a smooth experience with each use. Provacan’s capsules are great for both those who are used to CBD capsules, as well as anyone looking to try them for the very first time.

Committed to making their products as accessible as possible, Provacan has three different strength options to choose from: starting with their 180mg capsules and working up to a much stronger 2880mg of CBD, Provacan ensures that everyone can experience and benefit from their CBD capsules.

#4 CBD FX – Best broad-spectrum CBD capsules 

CBD FX’s capsules provide the perfect balance between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD. By choosing to use broad-spectrum in their capsules, CBD FX is able to offer all of the essential healthy cannabinoids found within hemp plants without the extra compounds (namely THC) that tend to occur with full-spectrum products.

CBD FX only uses two additional ingredients to create their CBD capsules: MCT oil and gelatin. This results in a very natural final product. Also, the smooth coating helps to ensure that CBD FX capsules can be taken quickly and with ease.

Customer trust and transparency are essential at CBD FX, and that is why they make all of the third party lab test results accessible to their customers while shopping. These reports provide essential information, including the exact cannabinoids and terpenes which can be found within CBD FX capsules.

The CBD industry has attracted a great deal of attention over the last few years. A combination of high profile cases in the media and an investment in research has led to an increasing number of people showing interest in the potential benefits of CBD.

Research into the varying benefits of CBD has shown that it can be an extremely versatile supplement affecting health in a number of positive ways. A large number of studies have focused on the benefits of using CBD as a general wellness supplement.

There have also been more focused research projects that have found CBD possesses powerful anti-inflammatory capabilities and has led CBD to become a common natural remedy for treating related inflammatory conditions.

The effect of CBD on mental health and, in particular, anxiety and stress is another popular area of research and one that has attracted a great deal of interest. Early studies have yielded positive results, causing a rise in CBD products and PureKana CBD gummies focused on managing mental health.

Research into CBD and mental health

Early studies have shown that mental health could be one of the areas to benefit the most from CBD supplements and products like CBD gummies.

The effect that CBD supplements can have on anxiety has been an area of great interest within the scientific community. One study found that CBD can be beneficial when treating anxiety symptoms, although it was felt that further research was needed to understand this fully.

Taking CBD in the form of supplements increases the level of cannabinoids in the body. Cannabinoids are able to bind to CB1R and CB2R receptors within the nervous system. It has been found that when cannabinoid levels are increased, these receptors alter the signaling pathways, which in turn can impact a number of psychology responses.

There has also been evidence that CBD interacts positively with serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin can affect a range of functions within the body and is often linked to a person’s mental state. A common goal of mental health medication is to balance serotonin levels within the body.

There is still a lot more research needed to fully understand the link between CBD supplements, serotonin, and mental health. However, initial research has shown promise that CBD could be used in a similar way to medication that aims to alter serotonin levels and positively impact mental health.

Most studies conclude that there are still a lot of questions to be answered when it comes to using CBD to treat mental health. However, it has been shown that CBD products can be used as a useful general wellness tool and that CBD gummies are an excellent way to do so.

Benefits of CBD gummies over other CBD products

CBD gummies are a super popular option for taking CBD supplements on a regular basis. CBD gummies offer something that is hard to find in other CBD products combining a fun, fruity snack with a healthy dose of CBD.

One of the main benefits of CBD gummies is that they are incredibly discreet. Most CBD gummies look and can be used just like regular gummies. Mental health is something that often carries a lot of stigma, and therefore products like gummies are usually recommended as they draw much less attention.

CBD gummies can also be a fun snack in a way that other CBD products are not. The bright, fruity flavor that comes with a CBD gummy can provide a small and much-needed burst of joy.

Most brands also have a few different options to choose from when it comes to gummies, including various flavors and shapes. Shopping for CBD gummies can be a fun and rewarding experience, much like walking into a candy store.

The simplicity of CBD gummies is another benefit, especially at times when it can be challenging to focus. The manufacturer has already made a lot of the effort required with other CBD products with CBD gummies.

There is no need to measure out a precise dosage or to worry about how many gummies should be consumed at one time. CBD gummies can be enjoyed just like a regular sweet snack.

Should you try CBD gummies to help with mental health?

It is still unclear whether CBD gummies can be used as an effective way to treat mental health. There are still a number of reasons to buy CBD gummies, though, whether as an enjoyable snack or as a wellness supplement.

Early studies have highlighted the positive benefits that added a small amount of CBD to one’s diet can have. CBD gummies offer many of the same effects that can be found in other CBD products, such as oil tinctures, capsules, and topicals.

When it comes to getting started with imbibing CBD, there is a natural desire to lean towards smoking CBD joints.

After all, smoking cannabis just seems like the most natural way to enjoy it, right? However, CBD is a lot more granular than regular cannabis, and there are a myriad of ways to enjoy it.

To help make the decision easier, here are a few of the pros and cons of CBD joints by Premium Jane to find out if this method is the right choice for you.

The Pros of Smoking CBD Joints

  • Great Flavor

While other methods of imbibing CBD might be more popular or more comfortable to use, none of them have the excellent, natural flavor that smoking regular CBD joints has.

In precisely the same way that some people enjoy cigars and whiskey, there are people who sample and enjoy cannabis strains. They aren’t looking for the effects, per se, but for the unique flavors.

By smoking CBD joints, users can enjoy all of the natural terpenes and flavors that cannabis has to offer.

  • Easy to Assemble Ahead of Time

A significant benefit of smoking CBD joints is that a user can easily prepare them ahead of time at home. This means that, when it comes time to smoke the CBD joint, it is as simple as lighting it up and breathing in.

Aside from the rather irritatingly finicky assembly required, when a person actually wants to smoke, they can just light up and enjoy.

  • Higher Bioavailability

Bioavailability is the rate at which the CBD a person imbibes is absorbed, broken down, and utilized by the body. Different methods of CBD consumption have different levels of bioavailability, and for some reason, smoking has one of the highest.

A study by Millar et al. for the Journal of Frontiers in Pharmacology found that smoking CBD has a bioavailability of 31%. This might not initially seem like much, but it is actually considered one of the highest rates of bioavailability, technically making it the most efficient way to imbibe CBD.

The Cons of Smoking CBD Joints

  • Danger to Your Health

Despite the higher bioavailability of smoking CBD, it still presents a big problem when it comes to health – the fact that the user is smoking at all.

No matter how healthy the substance within the joint is, the fact remains that you are smoking it, which is, unfortunately, inherently unhealthy.

Smoking involves combusting plant matter at high temperatures, resulting in inhaling burned substances into the lungs. This stuff can cause damage to the respiratory system, including scar tissue and any number of different medical conditions.

  • Anti-Social

Another big problem with smoking CBD joints is that it is just as antisocial as regular smoking is. If a user wants to enjoy some CBD joints, they need to light them up and force everyone around them to breathe in the same smoke that they are.

For those who frequently want to imbibe in public, CBD joints are definitely not a good option, as they force others to become irritated by the second-hand smoke.

What Other Alternatives Are There for Enjoying CBD?

Even if CBD joints aren’t the right option, there are still plenty of ways for new users to enjoy CBD. Considering all the useful benefits of CBD, like how CBD can help with treating nausea, it only makes sense that people would want to try CBD products, even if they don’t like smoking.

From CBD oils to CBD edibles, there are all kinds of ways to enjoy CBD without having to resort to smoking. It all depends on what kinds of methods provide the best solution for different people.

Final Thoughts on the Pros and Cons of CBD joints

Ultimately, the choice of whether or not to use CBD joints is a personal one. It all depends on the preferences and priorities of any particular user to determine if it is right for them.

Whether or not CBD joints are the perfect option, there will always be those who want to try CBD joints out regardless. Websites like Premium Jane, among others, offer high-quality CBD products, including a variety of different types of CBD joints for new users to choose from.
