How to Choose the Right Cannabis Product

The cannabis industry has grown so much in the last couple years that there are numerous products for people to choose for their health and wellness. But with so many options, it can be overwhelming to figure out how to choose the right product for your needs. Each one of us is unique and are trying to solve specific needs. There isn’t a one-size-fits all solution to cannabis wellness. But it is important to choose a high quality product that has a proven record for efficacy. Hopefully this article can help you determine what cannabis product to get. For fast acting effects that are consistent the use of THC or CBD drops and capsules are best. Drops have the ability to work within minutes, especially if you place them under the tongue for thirty seconds before ingesting. Soft gels are useful for consistent and precise dosing—not to mention they are discreet and can be easily added to your daily routine.

What Type of Cannabis Product is Best?

The best method for consuming cannabis is one that gives you an optimal dose for the duration you’re looking for. This is a very personal decision, so how do you choose? Let’s explore the options:

Depending on the type of product you want (soft gels, gummies, vape, etc.) the length of time that it takes for the effects to set in and the duration of those feelings are going to vary depending on multiple factors. For the most part, cannabis oil products are typically taken as tinctures or drops, ingested in a gummy or soft gel, or applied topically. THC or CBD drops can start working within minutes and last several hours depending on dose whereas soft gels can last four hours or more, but the onset of effects is much slower (usually within 30-90 minutes).

Finding The Right Dose

Many people have an interest in adding cannabis to their daily routine, but are confused about dosing. With each new customer the conversation surrounding the “best dose” continues to grow. The truth is that there is no “perfect” dose for everyone. Each person’s body is unique and in the same way the right dose for each person is unique. For CBD or THC drops it’s best to begin with a small dose of , especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis. Take a few small amounts over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same quantity each day  for several days and keep a journal to observe the effects as you adjust to the amount. It’s important not to overdo it in the beginning. “Less is more” is the golden rule when trying a new product!

How to Know You’re Buying a Trustworthy Product?

Look for products with clear labels showing the amount of cannabinoids per dose, a manufacturing date, and a batch number. It’s also important to make sure that the product you are purchasing has a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) and that proper testing procedures have been taken. Choose products with quality ingredients that never contain corn syrup, GMOs, artificial additives, or thinning agents. Trusted cannabis products should be lab tested for consistency and verified as being free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, heavy metals, and other contaminants. It may go without saying, but always purchase your products from compliant, legal companies.
