If you've always wanted to try CBD products but didn't know where to start, Simply CBD is on hand to help with expert tips and beginner buys

Chances are you may have seen or heard about CBD in recent years. And as we’re starting to learn more about it, a variety of new ranges are hitting the shelves, including lotions, oils, vapes, balms, edibles and water-soluble solutions. Here, Simply CBD gives you all of the information you need to get started.

What is CBD?

CBD products come from the cannabis plant. They contain minimal THC – less than 0.2%, in fact. As THC is the psychoactive component of marijuana, this means that they won’t get you high.

Popular with adults and pensioners, it is legally sold to people aged 18 and over. If you’re looking to buy products, you can find them in the form of oils, edibles, lotions, balms, gummies, capsules and more. They’re easily accessible too, which means you can pick them up on high streets and from a range of recommended online stores.

Will it get me high?

This is probably one of the most common questions asked, and the simple answer is no. This is because products must contain less than 0.2% THC, which is the psychoactive part of the plant. You can even find products on the market that contain no THC at all.

Getting started

Want to find a product that’s right for you? The good news is that there’s an extensive range of products that are helping many people try it for the first time. Several factors determine which one to buy, and sometimes this comes down to preference of how you want to take it.

Simply CBD always advises that you should ‘start low and slowly grow’ when you set out on your CBD journey. Here are some of the options from the range that are ideal for beginners, and are great value too!

Premium oils

The Green CBD oil is a great starter product because it is low strength, and you can simply place it under your tongue. This a full spectrum oil mixed in a base of hemp seed oil, which is high in both CBD and CBDa. Because it’s a full spectrum oil, it has multiple cannabis plant extracts, including essential oils, terpenes and cannabinoids.

The signature Liquid Gold CBD Oil with turmeric and black pepper combines full spectrum CBD with double-strength curcumin turmeric and black pepper. It has a pleasantly earthy, spicy and nutty flavour, and is placed under the tongue. This oil is low strength, and perfect for those looking to combine it with curcumin turmeric.

Alternatively, Entourage Aqua Water Soluble CBD is a full spectrum, water-soluble CBD that can be added to drinks. This revolutionary product is an alternative to taking traditional oils, plus you can add it to both hot and cold beverages.

CBD gummies

Simply CBD also offers gummies that you can easily take on-the-go. They come in packs of 20 delicious, mixed fruit-flavours. Each one contains 10mg CBD extract, plus they are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

CBD balm

You don’t have to take products orally. In fact, other options such as balms are a great option. The Lavender and Cocoa Butter Balm is particularly great for beginners as it’s gentle on the skin and absorbs easily.

How do I build up my use?
