CBD Canada: Oil, Gummies, Capsules and Topicals

The Cannabis plant contains a huge variety of cannabinoids; THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) being the two most popular ones. The latter has been overshadowed by its psychoactive, stoner-friendly cousin for quite some time now. This is mainly because Cannabidiol doesn’t get you high like tetrahydrocannabinol does.

So if it doesn’t get the user high, then what does it do?

What it does is very beneficial, especially for medical marijuana users. Cannabidiol works wonders when it comes to chronic pain and inflammation relief. It is also commonly used to treat anxiety and insomnia.

It gives you a lifted, calming, and chilled out feeling as opposed to the classic “stoned” feeling that THC from dried flowers is known for.

Common Effects

When people take Cannabidiol it is common to experience increased sensations of relaxation in the mind, body and soul. It is also likely to have a boost in overall wellness and mood. In addition, the best thing about it is that it doesn’t contain any ingredients that cause you to become intoxicated, making it great for use throughout the day.

However, even though Cannabidiol doesn’t get you high, it still provides many of the benefits that cannabinoids provide. 

Medical Uses

Medical cannabis users take Cannabidiol for many health reasons but anxiety and pain relief are the most common. However, there are many medical uses of this wonder-drug and that’s one of the reasons why it is taking the entire cannabis scene by storm.

Here are some of the most common conditions that Cannabidiol is used to treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Insomnia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Nausea
  • Pain Relief
  • Skin Conditions
  • Stress
  • Substance Abuse Treatment

Most patients who require prescription medical marijuana select CBD because they can gain the health benefits and symptom relief without getting intoxicated. It’s also great for casual users who are overly sensitive to tetrahydrocannabinol.

Negative Effects

The main side effect of CBD is that it can have unexpected interactions with certain medications. If you are currently on any medications, it is best to check with your family doctor before consumption.

Different Types of Cannabidiol Products

Because both cannabinoids come from the same plant, you’ll find that many marijuana products in general either contain THC, or CBD, or both in some cases.

The most common products include:

  • Oil: Liquid form of Cannabidiol that is extracted from hemp plants. 
  • Capsules: Capsules that contain Cannabidiol oil.
  • Edibles: Food that is infused with Cannabidiol.
  • Cannabidiol-Heavy Weed Strains: Cannabis strains with high levels of CBD.
  • Topicals: Creams, lotions and sprays that are applied to the skin
  • Beverages: Drinks that are infused with Cannabidiol.

Best Consumption Methods

As mentioned above, there are many different types of Cannabidiol products, and each have their own method of consumption. For instance, Cannabidiol oils are typically placed beneath your tongue. Pills, edibles and capsules are all ingested, whereas, topicals are applied to the skin. If you want to do it the old fashioned way, find a Cannabidiol-dominant strain and roll up a nice fat joint and enjoy.


If the goal is to find something that induces more intense sensations and gets you high, then THC is a great choice. THC provides the psychoactive properties that are lacking with CBD, and these properties provide a slurry of benefits.

Also, it is widely known that using Cannabidiol in conjunction with tetrahydrocannabinol often results in the best highs due to the fact that these two cannabinoids work well to complement each other. 

If flavor and taste is very important for you, we recommend trying pure full spectrum extracts and live resin.
