How to Choose, Order and Use The Right CBD Oil For You

Having trouble choosing the right CBD oil? Getting started with CBD oil can be a real challenge, with a large range of brands, product types, strengths, infusion methods and online retailers to choose from.

Luckily, once you’re aware of the key factors that go into the right CBD oil, you’ll find it easy to choose the right product for your needs.

From concentration to cost, we’ve listed the factors that you should look for in a CBD oil below, to make buying the right product as easy as possible for you. We’ve also listed the most widely used methods of consuming CBD oil, from pills to CBD tincture to vaporizing and to consuming CBD via food.

Start by comparing concentrations

CBD oil, whether sold as oil in capsules or CBD tincture, can come in a range of concentrations. Most CBD oil manufacturers produce a 250mg, 500mg and 1,000mg version of their oil, letting users access several different dosages via the same quantity of oil.

As with most supplements, higher doses of CBD oil have more pronounced and significant effects.

As a first-time CBD oil user, it’s best to start with a low to moderate concentration of CBD oil, such as a 250mg or 500mg CBD tincture or 10mg or 25mg CBD capsules. Over time, you can adjust your dosage of CBD oil as you become more experienced and familiar with its effects.

Choose between an isolate or full spectrum oil

CBD oil comes in two varieties: CBD isolate, which only contains isolated CBD compound, and full-spectrum, whole-plant CBD oil, which contains a variety of other active ingredients in addition to the key ingredient CBD.

While isolated CBD oil might seem tempting (after all, it only contains CBD), data shows that there are numerous benefits to using a full spectrum hemp oil. Several experts note that oil with additional active ingredients has an “entourage effect,” producing improved results.

Essentially, CBD may potentially be more effective when used with other hemp compounds in the form of full spectrum CBD oil. Ultimately, the choice is up to you as a consumer, with each option offering potential benefits.

Pick your dosage form/delivery method

CBD oil doesn’t just mean oil -- in fact, CBD is available in a variety of different serving sizes forms and delivery methods.

For example, in our online shop, CBD is available in several different concentrations as CBD tincture, in single origin hemp capsules and as hemp salve. All three delivery options contain identical active ingredients but offer different levels of accessibility and convenience.

While Functional Remedies currently does not offer it, you can also purchase CBD oil as a simple oil, letting you inhale it via vaporizer pen.

In the end, a variety of options are available, making it easy to consume and benefit from CBD through the method that best suits your needs.

Calculate your per-dose cost

Finally, when you’re comparing CBD oil products, it’s important to calculate the amount you’ll pay per serving size over the long term.

Because CBD oil comes in a variety of concentrations, you can often save by switching to a more potent oil or tincture. For example, our 500mg hemp tincture offers twice as much CBD per ounce but costs less than twice as much as our less potent 250mg CBD tincture.

This isn’t a major issue if you’re just getting started with CBD products. However, in the long term it’s often worth calculating your average cost per dose and adjusting your buying habits based on value for money.
