Although most of them contain no THC—the hallucinogenic compound in marijuana that produces the “high”—CBD products have benefited enormously from the widespread acceptance and legalization of weed. More and more people are being introduced to the anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety benefits of Cannabidiol, and its versatility opens it up to a variety of products from tinctures to skin creams to beverages to cooking oils.

Like anything, a lot of CBD use depends on your personal tastes. If you’re curious but don’t know where to start, here’s a cross-section of different CBD products that can help you find a way in that works best for your lifestyle and needs.

Gummies have proven a great way to get kids to take their vitamins, so it stands to reason that they’d be a great baby step into CBD products for adults. One thing to keep in mind when shopping for CBD products is to watch for certain clues as to the product’s authenticity and effectiveness: if the label says “hemp seed oil” rather than CBD or hemp oil, it likely doesn’t have any CBD. It’s also important to look for amounts, as most notable products will be out in the open about how much CBD their products contain (otherwise it may contain next to none). New Age Naturals’ gummies have 50mg of hemp oil per serving.

Topical application of hemp and CBD is becoming to new go-to over smelly and chemical-laden sports creams.

With 500mg of CBD per bottle, the Wise Help tinctures are recommended for a wide variety of benefits, from stress and pain relief to higher brain function and better sleep. The oil can be taken on its own—the Wise Help variety comes with a mint flavor to counteract the vaguely bong-water flavor of some others—or it can be mixed in with smoothies, condiments, or other edibles.

Sold a CBD tonics, these infused waters come in unique flavors like Lavender Spice and Grapefruit Rosemary and contain 15mg of CBD per bottle (and zero THC). A refreshing way to work CBD into your normal routine, the Aurora line suggest drinking them chilled, over ice, or even as part of a cocktail mixture.

Each gumdrop contains a potent 20mg of CBD, and are made from natural fruit flavors, gelatin, citric acid, and sugar. The compact, square box is also easy to keep in a backpack or handbag, without the risk of tincture spills. They are not cheap, but a luxury way to introduce your body to the calm sense of well-being CBD provides.
