How to Buy CBD: Which Type of CBD Is Right for You?

How to buy cbd

If you’re new to CBD and feel a little out of your element, then you’re probably wondering how to buy CBD and what type will work best for your needs. As you scroll through our website, you’ll see everything from lip balm to soft gels. Does it matter what type of CBD you buy? Yes, there are differences you’ll probably want to know about. We’re here to provide you with a crash course in how to buy CBD, specifically CBD products we offer in our online store.  

CBD for Relief Throughout the Body (Systemic Products)

If you want the therapeutic effects of CBD throughout your body to prevent and manage ailments, then buy CBD in an ingestible form for widespread relief. Tinctures and soft gels afford the longest-lasting effects, usually 4 to 8 hours or more, depending on the person.


Our tinctures contain organic olive oil infused with a liquid CBD concentrate. The olive oil, (a.k.a. carrier oil) helps your body absorb the liquified CBD. Tinctures are held under your tongue for about 10 seconds and are quickly absorbed into your arterial blood supply. Despite the quick absorption, it will take about an hour for you to feel the full effect.

But why buy CBD products containing olive oil?

Olive oil is the safest and most well tolerated CBD carrier oil and also has its own very positive health benefits.  Other popular carrier oils can cause GI side effects we don’t want to talk about here!

Flavored CBD Tinctures

Soft Gels

Our soft gels contain full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD in an organic olive oil carrier. They provide widespread, therapeutic effects, just like tinctures, but they have a longer onset time. Since CBD soft gels must travel through your digestive system rather than being directly absorbed into the blood stream. It will take more than an hour before you start feeling any effects.

Many people opt to buy CBD soft gels, because they’re more familiar with pills than tinctures and are more comfortable with this form.

If you have trouble swallowing pills or want a quicker onset time, you might prefer a CBD tincture.   

Vape Juice

Our CBD Vape Juice products are made from CBD isolate, meaning they contain 99% pure CBD crystals. The crystals have been pulverized into a powder that’s easily vaporized using a vape pen or other vaping method.

When you buy CBD in this form, you can expect to feel the effects immediately after use. Inhaling vaporized CBD oil (think e-cigs for CBD) allows the compounds to absorb into your bloodstream directly from the lungs. Depending on the individual, the effects will last anywhere from 90 minutes to 3 hours.

Our vape juice contains no nicotine and no THC. It will not produce any type of high. However, if you have a lung condition or are concerned about how vaping may affect your lung health, you may prefer to buy CBD products in other forms, such as soft gels or tinctures.

Researchers are still studying the health effects of vaping, and especially vaping CBD juice.

Salves, Oils, Lip Balms

CBD for Localized Relief (Topicals)

Our localized CBD products are simply topicals that only affect the area where you apply them. They’re typically used to relieve muscle and joint pain and come in various forms such as salves or rubs, oils, and even lip balms.

You apply topicals directly to the skin and can expect to feel effects in as little as 15 minutes. You’ll continue to experience relief for hours and can reapply as needed.

If you want to buy CBD products to provide relief for achy muscle and joints without ingestion, then our topicals may be the best type of CBD for you.

Find the Best CBD Products By Understanding Labels and Lab Results

Find the Best CBD Products by Understanding Labels and Lab Results |

So, you’ve walked into a few (sometimes sketchy) CBD dispensaries or gas stations and browsed countless websites only to find that you’re more confused than ever about how to find legal, safe, and effective CBD. For the sake of your health (and wallet) you want to find the best CBD products, but you’re not sure how to go about it.

No worries! Here’s a brief tutorial on what to look for on product labels and how to get important information from product lab test results.

Full-Spectrum VS Broad-Spectrum CBD

Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum are popular forms of CBD but have one important difference. Full spectrum CBD includes all the compounds from cannabis, including varying amounts of THC. THC is the component that makes you high and shows up in drug testing. (See below for details.)

Broad Spectrum CBD also includes other cannabis compounds, but all (or virtually all) of the THC has been removed.

Full-spectrum CBD is legally allowed to contain THC, but only a very tiny amount. People who are concerned about drug testing and possible traces of THC might prefer broad spectrum CBD products – just to be on the safe side. Some drug tests are more sensitive than others.

CBD Soft Gels |

Look for a THC Percentage

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the “psychoactive” compound in cannabis. It’s responsible for creating the “high” people experience when using marijuana. Legally, CBD products sold freely to the public cannot contain more than .3% of THC, which is far below the amount it takes to get high and usually not enough to show up in a drug test.

CBD Oil THC percentage |

As you can see from the label, our CBD Oil Tincture (and all our products) contains less than .3% THC.

The best CBD products will allow public access to third party lab test results that provide specific information (more on that later in this post).

Words to Look for on Your CBD Product Label

The correct language on a CBD product label is critical, because some manufacturers try to take advantage of consumers who aren’t aware of industry complexities. Good thing you’re reading this blog!

As a savvy consumer, you’ll want to see one of these phrases on a label:

  • Hemp extract
  • Hemp derived
  • Hemp oil extract
  • CBD oil

Otherwise, you could be getting a product made only from the hemp seeds, which contains no CBD at all!

What to Look for in CBD Product Lab Results

The best CBD products will make third-party lab test results accessible for your review. In the industry, these lab results are compiled as an official document known as a COA or Certificate of Analysis.

A COA contains a product-specific breakdown of all CBD compounds and THC. This is important, because you don’t want to purchase a product with more filler than CBD compounds – or too much THC!

Look for a Max CBD no lower than .9% and a Max THC no higher than .3%.

But keep in mind that THC levels rise with the amount of CBD in the product.

For example, compare our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, 250 mg (a.k.a. CBD oil or tincture) with our 1000 mg hemp extract:

250 mg CBD Oil

  • Max CBD = 0.92%
  • Max THC =.03%
250 mg CBD Oil |

1000 mg CBD Oil

  • Max CBD = 3.49%
  • Max THC = .11%
1000 mg CBD Oil |

The Max THC levels in both products are well below the legal CBD limit of .3%, and even the .3% THC isn’t enough to cause a “high”. However, it’s important to understand what you’re getting when you purchase a product.

Lab Results for Other Pure Botanical Wellness Products

The Pure Botanical Wellness team is dedicated to transparency as well as product purity. We strive to bring you the best CBD products and the facts you need to feel good about your purchases.

Here are the COA’s for additional products on our website:

CBD Soft Gels – 30 mg Each

500 mg CBD Oil

Natural 250 MG CBD Salve

250 mg CBD Salve |

Natural 1000 MG CBD Salve

1000 mg CBD Salve|

All testing was conducted by a third-party facility, ProVerde Laboratories, that specializes in the hemp industry.

Does Hemp Oil Contain CBD? What to Know Before You Buy

Does Hemp Oil Contain CBD |

Let’s face it, there’s an epic amount of sketchy – and totally false – information online about CBD and CBD products. But the team here at Pure Botanical Wellness is dedicated to sifting through the misconceptions and bringing you the facts about CBD, hemp oil extract, and other products. So, does hemp oil contain CBD?

The answer is both yes and no. Here’s why.

The term “hemp oil” is a generic term that refers to any oil that comes from the hemp plant. The two most common types of hemp oil are hemp seed oil and hemp oil extract – and they’re very different even though they have similar names.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is derived only from hemp seeds – which means it does not contain CBD .

CBD is found only in the stalks, stems, and flowers of cannabis plants, typically hemp plants where it exists more abundantly.

Since hemp seeds don’t contain CBD, then it’s apparent that hemp seed oil doesn’t either.

If you’re not specifically interested in CBD or pain relief but simply want a skincare oil high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega fatty acids, then hemp seed oil is a suitable product.

Hemp Oil Extract (CBD Oil)

In contrast, hemp oil extract is derived directly from parts of the hemp plant known to have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), such as the stalks, stems, and flowers.

Does hemp oil extract contain CBD? Yes, it does!

Why would you buy hemp extract oil (a.k.a. CBD oil)?

If you’re seeking anti-inflammatory benefits, a pain reliever, or relief from other ailments, then you’ll want a product that contains CBD.

Carefully read the product label to be sure you’re getting hemp oil extract and not hemp seed oil, if you want therapeutic benefits.

Hemp Seed Oil VS CBD Oil

Are There Negative Effects of CBD?

In addition to asking the question, does hemp oil contain CBD, you might also want to know if it’s safe to use. Are there negative effects?

Most people tolerate CBD well and experience little to no side effects. But, in the interest of full disclosure, some people have reported dry mouth, reduced appetite, diarrhea, drowsiness, and fatigue.

However, if you’re taking other medications, specifically blood thinners, it’s best to ask your doctor about possible interactions. You should consult with your doctor before taking any new supplement, medication, or CBD product.

How CBD Works in the Body

Homeostasis. Even if you don’t know what the word means, I bet that just by looking at the word, it seems like a good thing. But just in case, that’s not enough, let’s evaluate it first. explains homeostasis as “the tendency of a system, especially the physiological system of higher animals, to maintain internal stability, owning to the coordinated response of its parts to any situation or stimulus that would tend to disturb its normal condition or function” or ” a state of psychological equilibrium obtained when tension or a drive hs been reduced or eliminated.”

Now that does sound sublime, doesn’t it? Hold onto that thought for a moment.

Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system. This system regulates… well a whole heck of a lot in our bodies. You may not have heard of the endocannabinoid system. I certainly hadn’t heard of it until I started learning about CBD oil helps us. Rather than go into detail about the ECS, I’m just going to link over to an article (here) where you can really geek out on what it is. To keep it simple, CBD interacts with this endocannabinoid system in our bodies to bring the body into homeostasis.

And this is important, because the endocannabinoid system regulates so many different systems in our bodies and can affect mood, sleep, appetite, memory, inflammation, pain and many other issues. CBD oil helps to bring the body into homeostasis so if you’re struggling with axiety, studies suggest that CBD helps. Or, if you are struggling with insomnia, CBD may help. CBD oil (or hemp oil) may help with any of the systems that the endocannabinoid system affects.

I want to clarify here that I am not making any specific claims. But I do want to share with you what I have learned after reading mountains of articles on the topic of CBD and hearing from our customers and from taking CBD, myself. Many of our customers have reached out to us to let us know how much better they sleep at night since they have been taking CBD or how they feel less stressed.

Personally, I have noticed that my rosacea is much better since I have been taking CBD hemp oil regularly. Before, I struggled with bad breakouts due to the rosacea. Now, my face is clearer than it has been in a long time. But I haven’t found any articles that discuss the affects of CBD on rosacea. This is just one personal experience.

The fact is that no one can make claims about what health issues CBD cures or treats because not enough research has been done. And, the FDA hasn’t approved any claims for what CBD does. For decades, the government has tied the hands of society. Propaganda has been spread relentlessly to deter the use of CBD. What we know today is that CBD can have a positive affect on many health related issues and that everyone’s experience is different.

After all, isn’t having better overall brain/body health something that we all want? I know I do. We, at Pure Botanical Wellness, invite you to join us on this journey towards better sleep, better mood, less pain, and all the other benefits of hemp derived CBD oil. And we invite you to share you experiences with us.

CBD Dosage Information

Are you wondering what it means when you purchase a bottle of 1000 mg CBD oil tincture? Or the 500mg? Or which one to buy? I’m going to dive right in and explain how to understand your bottle and how to determine how much CBD you are taking.

The labels on our bottles state the amount of CBD (cannabindiol) is in the bottle. If you are purchasing a 30ml bottle with 1000mg of CBD in it, then the math is simple. 1000mg dividing by 30ml equals 33.33 mg of CBD per ml. Next, how much is one ml?

Well, take a look at our new bottles of the tinctures. The droppers have labels on the tube telling you how much is .25ml, .5 ml, and 1 ml. 1 ml is about one dropper full. So, one dropper full of the 1000 mg bottle is 33.33 mg of CBD.

So, if your desired does is 1 dropper full here’s what you can expect:

1000 mg CBD: 1 ml = 33.33 mg CBD

500 mg CBD: 1 ml = 16.66 mg CBD

250 mg CBD: 1 ml = 8.33 mg CBD

If you are new to taking CBD oil or hemp oil, then start low and increase until you get the desired affect. The great thing about purchasing an oil tincture is that you can experiment with your dosage amounts by altering how much liquid you put in the dropper.

Keep in mind that if you choose the soft gel caps, each gel cap is 30 mg of CBD. If you are trying to get a smaller dose than 30 mg, then the CBD oil tinctures may be your better option.

For precise dosing information for your body, your circumstance, and your age, we suggest that you consult your doctor.
