Beginner’s Guide 

Welcome to our CBD beginner's guide! We have written this manual to provide a simple solution that allows new users to quickly learn the key points and gain a good understanding of what CBD is and how it works..

What is CBD?

CBD is a molecule produced by the cannabis plant known for its vast medicinal benefits. Unlike THC, CBD has no intoxicating effects, which means you can take it in the morning or during work without being high. CBD has also been shown to modulate the amount THC in your body. So if you take too much THC, CBD can balance out the amount in your body.

Methods of Consumption

There are many ways CBD can be used! Each method has their specific benefits so it is important to find the method that best suites your needs.Thanks to our body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), CBD can help maintain homeostasis or balance throughout our entire body.

Sublingual Oil

Sublingual medications or tinctures are composed of compounds like CBD which are extracted from the cannabis plant. With sublingual application CBD is absorbed through vessel-rich tissues located under the tongue. Sublinguals are today's most popular
form of consuming CBD.  


Tinctures are ideal for patients who cannot smoke due to either their age or medical condition. Sublingual applications are also odorless and discreet.


Onset Time: 10-20 Minutes                                                   Duration: 4-6 Hours



Inhalation can be a very convenient and efficient way of ingesting CBD. Due to its quick onset time, CBD vaporizers are becoming very popular among CBD users. Vaporization occurs when CBD oil is boiled and the vapor is inhaled through the lungs. Be wary of CBD oil with a propylene glycol as scientists are convinced this could be hazardous to your health. If you are accustomed to traditional cannabis use, consumers can even roll up the flowering portion of the hemp plant and smoke it just like its marijuana cousin. 

Pros: Patients have the ability to dose properly and titrate the medicinal effect easily. Vape pens are ideal for discreet smoking due to their minimal odor output and portability.

Onset Time: 2-5 Minutes                                                         Duration: 1-2 Hours



These products come in many varieties and are normalized intake methods. CBD edibles are a convenient way to enjoy long lasting effects.

Oral consumption of CBD is a great option for those looking for a familiar intake method and long lasting effects. Edible formulations can take the form of baked goods, candies, liquids, and everyday cuisine.


Onset Time: 30-90 Minutes                                                 Duration: 8-12 Hours




Topical treatments include CBD-infused lotions, ointments, balms, and lubricants. CBD is absorbed through the skin and comes in contact with surrounding CB2 receptors.

These products provide discreet relief of localized inflammation, pain, tension, and skin diseases such as eczema or psoriasis.
