NISKAYUNA — A CBD oil, gel and balm store — selling products derived from hemp — is coming to Niskayuna.

And it’s coming close to Niskayuna High School.

In a 4-3 vote, the town’s Planning Board and Zoning Commission on Monday granted site plan approval for a “Your CBD Store” that will open soon in ShopRite Plaza, in the former Tropics tanning salon near the ShopRite supermarket.

The store will sell health products that contain CBD (cannabidiol), a compound found in the cannabis plant. “Your CBD” products, according to the company Website, use hemp organically grown in Colorado.

Health officials say there is some confusion over hemp and marijuana. Although taxonomically speaking the same plant, officials say, they are different names for the same genus (Cannabis) and species.

Hemp and marijuana look and smell the same, Cooperative Extension agents say, adding that the difference is hemp plants contain no more than 0.3 percent (by dry weight) of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive substance found in marijuana.

By comparison, officials say, marijuana typically contains 5 to 20 percent THC.

Jeanne Sosnow, speaking as president of the Niskayuna Community Action Program (N-CAP), voiced concerns over the store during the privilege-of-the-floor session of the meeting. Sosnow described N-CAP as a group of volunteers who organize community events but also work to prevent youth substance misuse.

Sosnow said CBD has quickly entered the mainstream and long-term effects of the product are not yet known.

“Without the maturity to make safe decisions, young people quickly pick up on new products, as we’ve seen with the vaping crisis,” Sosnow said. “So I have concerns about keeping our kids protected from self medicating and misuse in the face of marketing CBD as such a wonderful and diverse product. And it’s going to be located right here in the center of town, near the high school.”

Sosnow asked if store owners and management would ensure the enforcement of age requirements on the purchase of CBD products.

“Will this lead to any smoke shop or vaping paraphernalia?” Sosnow also asked. “Is there a plan for educating the public on the safe and appropriate uses of CBD?”

Store owner John Convertino told the board he will sell only to people who are over age 21. He said there will be no smoking or vaping products sold at the store. He will post a sign that proclaims managers will check identifications.

Board member Genghis Khan expressed concern over the store’s location.

“I’ve got zero issues and concerns with the business,” Khan said. “I’ve got a lot of issues and concerns with the location, within a thousand feet of the high school, which has very mobile, easy access, high school-age students, young adults.

“The Planning Board is in full understanding how code enforcement works,” Khan added. “This is a little bit more of a policing action than a code enforcement action … there are other properties in Niskayuna that are available for a business like this. My question is, isn’t there a more suitable location for this business?”

Convertino said he liked the ShopRite location for the traffic it will generate. And as identifications will be checked, he does not believe the proximity to the high school will be an issue.

“Anybody coming in to buy something, it’s $50 to $100 per thing you get,” Convertino said.

“Niskayuna is a wealthy community,” Khan responded. “Kids have a lot of access to disposable income.”

Board member Morris Auster said he believed there were many questions about the proposal. He moved to table the resolution until December; the measure failed, 4-3.

Convertino, as he was leaving the meeting, said he believes some people still need to be educated about CBD.

“Some people see it as marijuana, some people just see the vape products with all that’s going on out there with vaping, that’s why I definitely didn’t want anything to do with vaping in our store,” he said.

Convertino said CBD oils, creams, water-solubles and other products help with ailments.

“I take it myself for anxiety,” he said. “I use the cream on my hands because I have really bad arthritis from doing construction. I’ll put it on my hands and they don’t hurt for the rest of the day.”

Convertino hopes to open before January.

Deputy Town Attorney Alexis Kim said CBD products are a legal use. “It’s not prohibited under town code or state law,” she said.

CBD products were featured during the town’s summer farmers markets held at the Niskayuna Co-op food market. Upstate CBD, which offers hemp buds, topicals and other products, opened last spring on Union Street.

In other business, the board approved site plan approval for a JP Morgan Chase bank. The new bank will be built in Mohawk Commons off Balltown Road.

Chase has received permission to demolish the vacant Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant for the 3,400 square-foot bank. Construction is expected to begin in late spring or early summer and will include a drive-through banking window.

Ruby Tuesday in Mohawk Commons closed Aug. 15, 2016, one of about 100 locations nationwide the company decided to shut down because they were performing below expectations.

“I think we’ve got a good plan,” said Board Member Patrick McPartlon. “We’ve had several rounds of review. All in all, I think this is going to be a great improvement.”

Richard A. Dordas, Chase’s marketing director for construction in the Northeast, said company marketing research has determined need for a Chase bank in the area. He also said three new Chase facilities recently have been built in Albany County; three more are planned for the Capital Region.

Products containing CBD oil are off limits for airmen, the Air Force said Tuesday.

The service issued a reminder that products with CBD oil, an abbreviation for cannabidiol oil and derived from the marijuana plant, may lead to positive results for airmen undergoing urinalysis designed to detect marijuana.

Currently, 11 states and the District of Columbia have adopted laws to OK recreational marijuana use, and even more states have approved measures to permit medical marijuana use. But service members are barred from consuming marijuana under Article 112a of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Even so, CBD oil and products containing CBD oil — such as gummy bears, teas and lotions — still remain a bit of a question mark. Because CBD-oil products are unregulated by the Federal Drug Administration, the Air Force cautioned that these products may contain undisclosed levels of the mind-altering chemical in marijuana: tetrahydrocannabinol.

“It’s important for both uniformed and civilian Airmen to understand the risk these products pose to their careers,” Maj. Jason Gammons, Air Force Office of The Judge Advocate General spokesperson, said in an Air Force news release. “Products containing unregulated levels of THC can cause positive drug tests, resulting in the same disciplinary actions as if members had consumed marijuana.”

The Air Force cited a report that Marcel O. Bonn-Miller from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine published in 2017 examining 84 CBD products sold online. Bonn-Miller’s research determined that less than a third of the products accurately reflected the CBD content.

Even when products claimed they did not contain any THC, the study detected THC in 21 percent of the products. Under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, THC levels in CBD oil products must remain under 0.3 percent.

The Air Force said that while the levels of THC may be low, Airmen shouldn’t take chances.

“The important point for Airmen to consider is the level of uncertainty for these products,” Gammons said. “We want to ensure we arm them with the facts so they can make informed decisions and not inadvertently jeopardize their military careers.”

According to a blog post from Crisp and Associates Military Law, airmen who test positive for marijuana during urinalysis typically receive a discharge and an Article 15, the highest form of military nonjudicial punishment.

Other branches of the military have also issued similar warnings about hemp-derived products.

In August, the U.S. Navy issued a directive that barred sailors and Marines from using products stemming from marijuana. This policy also extended to products containing CBD oil, and outlawed sailors from using such products in states where they have been legalized.

According to Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, the absence of FDA regulations mean sailors can’t “rely on the packaging and labeling of hemp products in determining whether the product contains THC concentrations that could cause a positive urinalysis result.”

By JERRY EMERY

Special To The Times

While many say that cancer is a personal experience, the “educator in me” always thought otherwise. I feel we should be sharing our experiences with others so that they might be more knowledgeable and prepared if or when cancer strikes them or a loved one. I probably internalized this feeling when my mother died, from breast cancer, when I was only 23. She allowed and, in fact, encouraged doctors and nurses to examine her and to ask questions about her condition.

This was the impetus for this short series of articles about my personal trek. I apologize in advance for the inadvertent misuse of any medical terminology, as that is not my forte. While I will address this cancer experience in the first person, it behooves me to recognize my wife, Becky, for her total support, strength, and love I have received from her before and since this “trek,” as opposed to a “journey,” began. This is also true for our extended family and friends.

Ever since my youth, I could feel a small, flat lump deep on the left side of my neck. It was in late April of this year, however, I noticed this lump had grown to the size and thickness of an almond.

Our GP, after a quick perusal of the lymph node and questioning about other possible symptoms, immediately referred me to one of our health care provider’s Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialists and to the Radiation Department for a CT scan of the neck. Both doctors asked about other possible symptoms, explaining that night sweats was a primary symptom for several illnesses. I had been experiencing the night sweats for over two months and began taking CBD oil to control them. CBD oil was so effective, in fact, that I began using it on the summer days I was golfing, as well.

The first CT scan, taken on May 6, indentified swollen nodes, not only in the neck, but also on each clavicle. Although our GP said he ordered a full torso scan, for May 7, the Radiation Department had no such order and just scanned the neck area again.

I met with the ENT for the first time on May 15. After checking for signs of a possible infection, she performed a “fine needle biopsy” of the large node on the side of my neck. Which often happens, however, this simple procedure did not collect enough cells for a clear diagnosis.

The largest lymph node was now the size of a small walnut and the ENT referred me to the cancer center in Stockton for a “core needle biopsy,” scheduled for June 7 and a lymph node excision for July 16. This core biopsy was performed under a local anesthetic and used the earlier scan, instead of a more time-consuming ultrasound, to target the lymph node. The ultrasound and the use of a general anesthetic would have resulted in a stay of up to six to eight hours, as compared with the hour and a half this method took. After the core biopsy, the lymph node began to shrink back down to the size of an almond.

The subsequent pathology report mentioned “atypical cells”, without further explanation, and the results were not referred to oncology. Our GP took this terminology and the shrinking node as signs that there was no cancer present. Based upon his encouraging response, I cancelled the lymph node excision planned for July 16.

On an entirely different medical issue, I was ambulanced to the ER on July 20 and ended up spending the night. An MRI was run, which eliminated a stroke or a brain tumor. Upon receiving that result, but noting the earlier core needle biopsy, that doctor marched down to the Pathology Department for a further explanation of “atypical cells.” Pathology referred him to Oncology where a diagnosis of “probably lymphoma” was received. Why this wasn’t done routinely has never been explained!

On July 23, the ENT scheduled an immediate full-body CT Scan at the Modesto office and an “excision biopsy” for late August at the cancer center in Stockton. The scan showed additional growths in the upper chest, in the stomach, and in the groin areas. Alarmed by the quick spread, the ENT cancelled the excision biopsy of the original enlarged lymph node in my neck, which was now down to the size of a pea, and opted for a less invasive excision of one of the nodes on my clavicle.

The excision was performed in her office on August 20 and a final diagnosis of “follicular Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma” was received on August 23, a full four months after initially finding the enlarged node in my neck. A more recent bone marrow biopsy determined minor involvement of the marrow, meaning an indolent or slow growing form, and no other organ involvement.

While I have decided to find another GP doctor with our health care provider, I must also accept partial responsibility for this extended process by not taking a more pro-active stance for a better explanation of “atypical cells” after the core biopsy was performed. I encourage all of those reading this to take the more aggressive, pro-active approach through the diagnostic maze in which you will find yourself.

The next article will explain the course of action for this cancer, with chemo only, as the standard protocol.

Do you have a cat who struggles with pain, seizures or anxiety?

Unfortunately, veterinarians don’t have a lot of options for drugs to treat these specific conditions. And even among the drugs that can be effective, the side effects are often unpleasant.

This is precisely why many cat owners have started turning to CBD oil to relieve their cat’s pain, anxiety or seizure disorder.

But you’re probably wondering, is CBD oil safe for cats? And how does it work?

CBD Oil and Your Cat

Just like people, cats have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS works to regulate certain bodily functions such as appetite, mood, pain level, sleep, and immunity.

Both human and feline bodies naturally produce cannabinoids called endocannabinoids to keep this system functioning.

So when you give your cat CBD oil, you are supplementing his or her endocannabinoid system. It’s similar to how you take vitamin C to support your immune system.

You’re simply helping your feline’s body’s natural functions.

But where cats are concerned, there’s a big difference between CBD and THC.

CBD Vs. THC

There’s plenty of talk about the benefits of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for people. Many swear by its ability to ease conditions like pain, nausea, insomnia, and depression.

But it turns out that CBD is also believed to have similar therapeutic properties. And unlike THC, CBD no psychoactive components.

This is a crucial difference when it comes to treating your cat because the THC in marijuana can be toxic to cats. This has been noted countless times when cats took it upon themselves to nibble on marijuana plants.

So when we talk about CBD for cats, we are referring to products derived from the hemp plant. Therefore, you should only administer CBD oil derived from the hemp plant to your feline.

CBD pet care products come in many different forms – from chewy or chicken-flavored edibles and oils to creams and balms that cat owners rub on their feline’s skin.

Among the many different forms, CBD oil seems to be the most effective. It reaches the highest concentration in the bloodstream and remains there for the longest amount of time.

But what about the issue of safety?

Is CBD Oil Safe for Cats?

Just as with CBD oil for humans, there hasn’t been a lot of scientific research on the impact of CBD on cats.

But the vast majority of anecdotal evidence points to its effectiveness – as long as the dosing is correct.

And this is where it gets a little dicey.

Once you land on a CBD oil that you feel is working for your cat, it can take time to find the right dosage that will deliver the effect without accidentally overdosing.

Overdosing isn’t lethal. But it could cause heavy sedation or gastrointestinal issues.

So once you do get the dosing and the product right, it’s important to keep using the specific product that’s working.

The truth is, the FDA doesn’t regulate the CBD products that are available on the market. So if you find what you feel is the right dosage but then switch to another product, you can’t be sure you’re getting the dosage you think you are.

So if you’re thinking about giving your cat CBD oil, do your due diligence.

If you’re able, find a vet or a provider that sells CBD oil as opposed to simply buying it online. There are a lot of scammers selling subpar products that, at best, won’t be effective and will end up being a waste of money.

At worst, they could be dangerous.

So even if you’re buying from a trusted source, ask if the product has a certificate of analysis. In fact, insist on nothing less than a COA.

Certificate of Analysis (COA)

Legally, CBD products cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. But CBD oil with even the smallest amount of THC is not from the hemp plant.

Once again, to be absolutely safe for your cat and avoid potential THC poisoning, use only CBD from hemp.

When you use products that come with a certificate of analysis (COA), you can be sure they’ve been lab-tested to confirm the product’s ingredients and potency. They will also be clear of mold, fungus, bacteria or other potentially harmful toxins.

Are There Side Effects of Using CBD Oil?

All studies on the side effects of CBD oil have been conducted on humans. But as this article shows, any side effects noted have been minor. And there is no danger of fatality from overdosing on CBD.

Dryness of mouth is one of the main side effects and can be overcome by drinking a lot of water or other fluids before, during, and after consuming CBD oil. The assumption is that cannabinoids inhibit the secretion of the salivary glands.

Another potential side effect is drowsiness. This can be alleviated by lowering the dosage. It should be noted though that CBD oil can have the opposite effect as well – making a person more energetic and alert.

A slight drop in blood pressure is another side effect. For those with hypertension or heart disease, this can be a beneficial side effect. But it can create lightheadedness too. And for those who are taking medication for low blood pressure, CBD is often counter-indicated.

There is also the potential to experience diarrhea and/or changes in weight and appetite. Again, this could be alleviated by modifying the dosage. And it may also be the result of the body adjusting to the introduction of CBD. Once it has adjusted, these may pass.

Again, it should be noted that these side effects apply to humans. So it’s very difficult to say at this point what, if any, side effects your cat might experience.

Could CBD Oil Be Right for Your Cat?

The answer to the question is CBD oil safe for cats seems to be a resounding yes. But whether it will work for your cat remains to be seen.

If you’re interested in trying CBD oil for your cat, your best course of action is to do some research to find the right product, then start slow. It may be just what your feline friend needs.

And keep checking back with us to stay up to date on what’s happening in popular culture.

CBD comes in various forms, and taking it can be beneficial to you only if you follow the right dosage levels. Identifying the dosage level is difficult and challenging for many. Medical professionals offer no specific dosage levels for the different CBD products on the market. The FDA has no recommended dosage, either, which makes it a complicated issue. 

Micro-dosing is one of the best approaches towards identifying a CBD dosage that works for you. The approach design involves taking little amounts of CBD over 2 to 3 days. Through this process, one recognizes the right or optimal CBD dosage that delivers the desired outcomes. 

Why engage in micro-dosing?

CBD has several impacts on the body. It can help alleviate your symptoms and induce relief if the optimal amount is what you take. Taking too much CBD has no psychoactive effects. However, it may have other side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, drowsiness, dizziness, among others. The side effects are manageable, but if you can avoid them, you need to practice micro-dosing. 

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system helping to regulate different body functions. It aids different organs in the body to perform their functions. At the same time, it creates a stable health status and well-balanced body operations. You get adequate REM sleep, balance for your hormonal levels, memory, appetite, and cognitive capabilities, among others. 

Negative impacts on the endocannabinoid system may result in imbalances, which in turn lead in different medical conditions such as an increase in anxiety, stress, and bad mood. Therefore, there is a need to regulate the amount of CBD you get to achieve the desired amount. Besides, studies show that dividing your dose to smaller dosage levels helps keep your symptoms at bay all through the day. 

Suitable CBD Products for Micro-Dosing

The first step towards micro-dosing correctly is identifying the right cannabis products to use. CBD comes in the form of tinctures, capsules, sprays, edibles, and CBD vaping oil. 

CBD vaping oil reacts fast and delivers the desired benefits within a short period. Vaping has a limited amount of vape oil you can add to your vaporizer. Thus, it is easy to micro-dose the amount you inhale. You can take puffs several times with an interval until the symptoms go away. 

People also like to vape CBD hemp flowers to get the dosage they need. If you are wondering Where can I buy the best CBD flower online?, then you can check out the top reviews and go for the trusted ones.

CBD edibles are hard microdose or titrate. The amount of CBD, even though indicated on the package, is challenging to measure. Besides, it takes a long time before its absorption into the blood systems from the digestive tract. However, if you are into edibles for your CBD intake, try gummies as they are cheap and quite easy to assimilate or digest. 

Image 

The best recommendations for micro-dosing are the CBD tinctures. They come with an accurate amount of CBD content per volume of each drop i.e., 600mg of CBD in a 30ml tincture bottle. Therefore, it is straightforward to estimate and keep track of the amount of CBD you ingest, i.e. a single drop contains 20mg of CBD for each ml. Therefore, if aiming only to take 10mg of CBD, you need to take a half a drop or 0.5 ml drop. As a result, identifying what works for you when using CBD is simpler. 

Using tinctures involves taking them sublingually. As liquids, their absorption into the blood is faster in comparison to edibles such as gummies. Besides, tinctures work within a short period and will alleviate your symptoms in a short while. 

How to Microdose on Your CBD 

Establishing a micro-dose that is safe and delivers your desired outcomes can be severe. The challenge is in identifying how much to start with and how much you continuously add to your dosage. Here are several steps to help you out in determining your optimal CBD dose. 

Starting Small

Image 

After you buy weed or have tincture products from reputable shops or retailers, it is essential to identify the CBD content to determine its potency. For starters, place only a small amount of CBD, preferably 1ml, and ingest it. 

To determine the effects of CBD oil, you ingest, write down several determinants, and add some scores at the end. Ensure you rate yourself accurately. Some of the factors you may consider include:

  • Ease to breathe.
  • Calmness and personal comfort.
  • Contentment. 
  • Gratitude and authentic smile.

Monitoring the Effects 

After taking the CBD, wait for 45 minutes to an hour before it takes effect. Then once the period is over, reevaluate yourself under the same scores. If you identify no results, gradually increase the amount by another milligram. 

Remember, outcomes differ from one individual to another. It is dependent on your weight, genetic composition, and resistance or a medical condition you are suffering from, e.g. chronic pain and depression may require different dosages to feel relieved. Besides, if you suffer from side effects, it is time to readjust and lower your dosage levels, especially if you started with 10mg of CBD. If there are effects from having 10mg of CBD, then you go ahead and increase the dosage with a single mg. 

With each increase in dosage, ensure you monitor the effects. If you took off with a single mg, increase to 2mg, and keep track of outcomes. Do so gradually, until you reach your sweet point. 

Sweet Spot 

Image 

It is a CBD dosage level that derives from you the effects you desire. The results are from taking different CBD doses until you reach the perfect or optimal CBD dose. To identify the sweet spot, you need to identify the point and CBD dose that you feel some difference in your score sheet and individually. 

The dose is what you need to achieve CBD benefits and gain the desired benefits from it. Therefore, it becomes your minimum dose. Remember, the additional increase will have no impact on your desired result and may result in side effects. Keeping the dosage at your sweet spot is essential to ensuring you achieve your desired outcomes. 

Conclusion 

Finding an optimal dose for your CBD needs and enhancing your health status is fundamental. Trying micro-dosing is essential as you get to know how much you need throughout the day for personal relief from pain, inflammation, anxiety, and other medical conditions.

It happened to me: I went from loving CBD edibles to consuming CBD everything–even the CBD tinctures. If I’m being honest, the idea of ingesting CBD oil wasn’t initially something I was excited about. My experience with tinctures prior to this was a few years ago, when I was given a couple of drops of a homemade weed tincture by a friend. And let me tell ya, that stuff was NASTY!!! So my hesitance, in this case, was well deserved. 

However, after talking to the manager of my local CBD shop it came to my attention that the way you consume CBD actually matters when it comes to its effects on the user. And tinctures, it turns out, are one of the best ways to ingest it. 

What is CBD? Are there dangers of CBD use?

Before you go consuming anything, it’s a good idea to know what it is you’re putting in your body. So for those of you new to this conversation, Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main chemical components found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Unlike THC (another main element of the marijuana plant), CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high or alter your perception. Its effects, according to the British Pharmacological Society Journals, can help relieve a wide range of symptoms including chronic pain, anxiety, seizures, and insomnia. However, since most of these products are listed as supplements and not medications, both the products themselves and their effects have not been regulated or substantiated by the FDA. 

That being said, since this isn’t a federally regulated industry, there are companies that falsify how much CBD is actually in the products, attempting to get away with using synthetics and even going as far as adding obscene amounts of melatonin to CBD edibles so consumers “feel” something. 

All of this is gross, so I’m going to tell you how to avoid it: READ THE LAB REPORTS AND INGREDIENT LABELS. I literally cannot stress this enough. Additionally, any reputable company will provide third-party lab results for all its CBD products. Why third-party? Because outside, unrelated labs have nothing to gain from their conclusions. But in order to read the lab results, you’ll need to understand what they mean, so I’ve provided an example using one of my favorite JustCBD products below.

I realize taking something not regulated by the FDA could be anxiety-inducing for some. However, don’t freak out just yet! Because the same can be said for the daily vitamins you take–they’re also considered dietary supplements, so they’re not regulated by the FDA. 

If you do decide to try CBD, talk to your doctor first to avoid any potentially negative reactions as it has been known to interact with certain medications like blood thinners, altering the levels of Coumadin in your bloodstream. 

What are CBD oil tinctures? And how do I use them?

You may already be familiar with the term “CBD oil,” but it comes in a variety of forms. There’s CBD oil for sublingual use, which is the focus of this piece (a.k.a. CBD oil tincture); CBD vape oil, which is only to be inhaled; and CBD-infused cooking oil for all of your food prep needs. Even though these products all fall under the umbrella term of “oil,” they cannot be used interchangeably. So if you purchase a CBD vape oil, it cannot be substituted in a recipe–you can only inhale it. The same can be said for CBD cooking oils and tinctures. These are designed to be ingested rather than vaped, and using any of these products improperly can lead to serious complications. So don’t do it.

In order for CBD to work, it needs to make its way to your bloodstream. Depending on the method of consumption, your body may not be fully absorbing it. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence—we see it all the time with other supplements. Take B12, for instance: the vitamin is offered in pills, chewable tablets, sprays, and even shots (which have proven to be the most effective since it introduces B12 directly into the bloodstream). 

How well your body is able to break down CBD is unique to you and dependent upon a bunch of physiological factors, as well as the quality of and way in which you’re consuming CBD. So that’s not to say CBD products other than tinctures don’t work at all, because in my experience, they do. But if you have a slow metabolism or other health issues, your body may not have the ability to fully absorb the compound. So you could be missing out on some of the key benefits, thinking that CBD doesn’t do anything for you. While the latter may be true (as only a doctor can tell you if CBD will work for your needs) it’s more likely that you just need to find a more effective way of consuming CBD. 

According to CannaHealth, a leading researcher for medical marijuana and CBD news, the most successful way for the body to fully absorb the benefits of CBD is to smoke it or ingest it sublingually. Smoking CBD flower (or vaping CBD oil cartridges) provides immediate results as the CBD goes to work as soon as it’s inhaled and passed on to your bloodstream (the same way our bodies get oxygen). But some people can’t smoke due to asthma and other lung problems, or they find smoking to be irritating, so it’s not the right option for everyone.

CBD tinctures, on the other hand, won’t irritate your throat, but like CBD gummies they won’t provide you with immediate effects. However, taking CBD sublingually is more convenient than smoking (since CBD smoke still has the same stench as weed) and it makes the product easier to dose. But since it has to sit under the tongue for a minute before being absorbed into the mucous membranes and then eventually swallowed and digested, it can take up to an hour or two for users to see results. 

In my own experience, I’ve found that CBD oil tinctures take around 30 minutes to take effect. Of the handful I’ve tried, two that really stood out to me are manufactured by JustCBD and are available online. I’ve included my review of them below, but before we get to that, it’s worth mentioning that from now through the end of the year Daily Dot readers can save 30% by applying the code dot30 at checkout.  

Organic Coconut CBD Oil Tincture

I started this piece complaining about the taste of tinctures, but that’s not something you’ll have to worry about with JustCBD’s Coconut Oil Tincture because it literally tastes like coconuts! And unlike other tinctures which use vegetable glycerin, this tincture is made with coconut oil–a natural MCT oil, which means you’re getting the benefits of healthy fats in addition to all the great effects CBD is known for. And for the cherry on top of this awesomesauce sundae: all of its ingredients are certified organic! 

Price: $14.99+

Organic Liquid Honey CBD Tincture

If you’re worried about the experience of taking CBD oil sublingually, JustCBD’s certified organic Liquid Honey Tincture offers a solution (as long as you’re okay with hemp-y flavors). It’s much thicker than a traditional tincture, so instead of putting a drop of it under your tongue, you can dilute the tincture in an ounce of hot tea, let it cool, and let that sit in your mouth (which is what I did). When all is said and done, it becomes an inbetweener–not quite an edible, but no longer an oil-based tincture. 

Price: $15+

What exactly is CBD (cannabidiol) oil and what can it do? What doesn’t it do? You’re likely here because someone told you to try CBD oil for pain, insomnia, anxiety, cancer, or another medical condition. Or you may be interested in trying it for everyday wellness, like a daily supplement.

We’re glad you’re here, arming yourself with information before diving head-first into the world of CBD, where misinformation and dubious claims swarm around unregulated products. CBD products can offer excellent relief, but one essential takeaway here is this: Not all CBD oils are created equal.

In this guide, you’ll come to understand the many forms of CBD oil and their differences. By the end, you should feel equipped and ready to find a clean CBD oil with reliable potency.

Jump to section:

What is CBD oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many chemical compounds (also called cannabinoidsproduced by cannabis. CBD oil simply refers to an extract of cannabis or hemp that is formulated to contain high levels of CBD, and may capture varying levels of other plant compounds.

Products containing only CBD are non-intoxicating, unlike THC-rich products which cause the high commonly associated with cannabis. This makes CBD a popular remedy among consumers looking for clear-headed relief of their symptoms. (Which symptoms, you ask? More on that below).

“CBD oil” is really a catch-all term used to describe CBD extracts more generally. While shopping for CBD oil, you’re likely to come across many different forms. The following products are some of the most popular forms of CBD oil.

  • CBD tinctures are liquid extracts that are applied under the tongue, where CBD is absorbed and enters the bloodstream. They typically come in a glass bottle with a dropper for dosing built into the lid.
  • CBD capsules are filled with oil and swallowed like a traditional supplement. These are packaged like bottles of vitamins or supplements, containing gelcaps filled with a golden oil. 
  • CBD Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) refers to an alcohol-based extract that can be ingested or applied to the skin. It’s commonly packaged in a plastic plunger or applicator. 
  • CBD vape oil may refer to either pre-filled oil cartridges that attach to vape batteries or vape juice used in e-cigarettes.
  • Dabbable CBD oil includes CBD-rich butane hash oil, live resins, rosin, and other forms used for a somewhat elaborate flash vaporization process known as “dabbing.” We wouldn’t suggest beginners start here, but we mention it so you understand what you are (or aren’t!) shopping for at your next visit to the cannabis shop.

For more information on which forms of CBD most reliably deliver their advertised dose, check out the results of Leafly’s CBD investigation.

What are the effects and benefits of CBD oil?

The first question on your mind right now might be, will CBD oil get me high? The short answer is no, most will not. But that can depend on where you’re buying your CBD oil.

On its own, CBD is a non-impairing compound. Any CBD products you purchase online or at retailers like grocery and drug stores are required to contain less than 0.3% THC; that trace amount of THC will not result in detectable euphoric effects.

However, when shopping at your local cannabis shop, it’s important to note how much CBD and THC are in a product. Products that contain both CBD and THC are increasingly common at cannabis retailers and suit the needs of many consumers. But if you’re looking to avoid any noticeable high, consult your budtender and read the label of the product you’ve selected: Generally speaking, products with less than 1% of THC (or less than 2mg of THC) will not get you stoned, but it really varies from person to person.

CBD oil may not get you high, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely undetectable in your body. Depending on your dose, your unique biology, and how you consume it (e.g., tincture, lotion, vaporized oil, etc.), CBD oil can have a range of subtle effects including physical relaxation, stress relief, or a slightly alerting or sedating effect (more on that here).

The most obvious effects of CBD oil should come in the form of symptom relief. Although research has yet to explore the full range of CBD’s utility, most people use CBD oil to manage symptoms related to:

But how effective is CBD oil at treating these conditions? Early studies and anecdotal reports are promising, but due to strict federal laws around cannabis, controlled clinical trials are lacking. So far, the safety profile of CBD appears to be very high, but it’s also important for consumers to take caution with potential drug interactions or products with questionable ingredients.

Finding the best CBD oil for you

Because CBD oil is not yet regulated, it’s up to the consumer to discern between high-quality concentrates and snake oil. As a general rule, we recommend purchasing organic, third-party tested oils sourced from domestically grown cannabis.

First, there are three distinct types of CBD oil you should know:

  • Full-spectrum CBD oil contains the full array of compounds produced by its source plant (CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and terpenes).
  • Broad-spectrum CBD oil contains a wide array of the compounds produced by its source plant, but THC is removed.
  • CBD isolate contains only CBD—all other compounds have been removed.

The wide variety of therapeutic compounds found in full-spectrum CBD oils make them popular among consumers wanting all the helpful ingredients they can get. Broad-spectrum CBD oil or CBD isolate, however, would be a good choice for those wanting to avoid even trace amounts of THC due to, let’s say, an upcoming drug test.

CBD oil can be formulated in one of three ways: full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate. Full-spectrum CBD oils deliver the widest variety of therapeutic compounds, followed by broad-spectrum CBD oil which has all trace of THC removed. CBD isolate contains nothing but CBD. (Leafly)

CBD oil can be made from either hemp or traditional cannabis (think smokeable dried buds), as both produce CBD in their resinous glands. There a few key differences and characteristics worth noting:

  • Due to differences in legality, hemp-derived products are far more accessible and widely available for purchase online. Cannabis-derived CBD oil and similar products are only available at cannabis shops in areas with legal cannabis.
  • Hemp expresses fewer resin glands than traditional cannabis with a higher THC content, so more plant material is required to process CBD oil derived from hemp. Since hemp more readily absorbs soil contaminants in a process called bioaccumulation, its extracts have a higher likelihood of concentrating residual heavy metals.
  • Hemp is also more limited in its chemical diversity, which could potentially result in a less therapeutically potent product.

That’s not to say that there aren’t high-quality, organic, reliable, and clean hemp-derived CBD oils and other products, even in an unregulated era. We’re starting to see an uptick in producers dedicated to creating safe, effective, reliable hemp-derived CBD oils.

So how do you get your hands on the good stuff? Leafly’s full guide to buying reliable CBD products is a great place to start.

The Trump administration is shifting the focus for determining U.S. drug prices to a “favored nations” approach rather than the international pricing index model that has been in the works since October 2018, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said.

President Donald Trump decided the U.S. ought to be getting the best deal among developed countries, so HHS is now reworking its proposal, Azar said at a Nov. 13 forum in Washington hosted by Axios.

The administration issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking in October 2018 to test an international pricing index model to pay for expensive injectable medicines covered by the Medicare Part B program. The proposal has been under review by the White House Office of Management and Budget since June.

Azar has now confirmed that the administration is working on a notice for proposed rulemaking on the favored nations approach.
