• Not easy to make yourself: Due to the complicated isolation and filtration processes necessary, CBD crystals are too complicated to make at home. It’s even dangerous. The required crystalline silica compound can only be handled under a laboratory fume cabinet.
• Immediate effect: Due to their high concentration of CBD, the effects of crystals set in much faster compared to other forms of CBD. This also means you will only need very small amounts at a time.
• Health benefits: Studies have shown a positive relationship between CBD crystals and various conditions of the mind and body. It’s a popular choice among those looking for a suitable supplement to take every day.
CREATE A VAPE LIQUID
Mix your crystals with your e-liquid and nobody will know that you are vaping CBD. Just add some crystals to your e-liquid bottle, and shake until it’s dissolved. For dosing, stick to approximately 200mg per 10ml of e-liquid. Some liquids tend to mix better than others. In some cases, you might need to heat it in order for it to completely dissolve. Do this carefully, for example by holding the bottle above a hot bath.
Create edibles by mixing the crystals with your cooking fats. You will simply be ingesting them through your meals. Mixing them into your favourite drinks is also an option. Keep an eye out for all the edible products that already have CBD crystals added in as well. The chocolates are very much desired!
When CBD is first extracted from the plant, it still contains other compounds that affect its purity. It takes quite an extensive filtration process to produce the final end product.
• Effectiveness: While crystals have a near-instant effect, it tends not to last very long, and it might not be the most well-rounded. By filtering out terpenes and other cannabinoids with their own beneficial properties, there is no chance of experiencing the “entourage effect” when taking CBD crystals.
Human studies evaluating the use of CBD in treating chronic pain are lacking. Those that do exist almost invariably include THC, making it difficult to isolate CBD’s distinct effects.
To use CBD oil, place one or more drops under the tongue and hold the dose there for 30 to 60 seconds without swallowing. Capsules and gummies are easier to dose, although they tend to be more costly. CBD sublingual sprays are available as well.
CBD oil may reduce the risk of heart disease by alleviating hypertension (high blood pressure) in certain people, suggests a 2017 study in JCI Insight.
For this study, nine healthy men took either 600 mg of CBD or the same dose of a placebo. According to the researcher, those treated with CBD had lower blood pressure before and after exposure to stressful stimuli (including exercise or extreme cold).
Since some CBD oils contain trace amounts of THC, you should avoid driving or using heavy machinery when taking CBD oil, particularly when first starting treatment or using a new brand.
