      CBD Guide

      Where to Start with CBD

      CBD is a powerful tool that millions of people swear by, but it can be an overwhelming world to enter. With all the potential health benefits, it seems odd that you can find it everywhere from gas stations to grocery stores. Is it all the same, and does it all provide the same benefits? What even ARE the benefits?

      We totally understand being overwhelmed, confused, and just seeking some help in the craziness that is the CBD world, so we're here to help provide some guidance. By the end of this article, you should be able to get started with CBD and start to experiencing it's potential positive effects on your life!

      Different Types of CBD

      You may have seen different titles for CBD while looking into it and wondered what they meant by "full-spectrum", "pure", and whatever other terms you may have come across. Let's start by looking at pure CBD extract.

      Pure CBD

      All CBD products are extracted from the Cannabis Sativa hemp plant. Pure CBD is extracted without THC, plant fats, or any of the terpenes (flavor compounds) that give the plant its various aromas and tastes. CBD isolate should be around 99% pure CBD and nothing else, which gives you a potent, concentrated dose and, in theory, a higher concentration of potential benefits.

      Full-Spectrum CBD

      When a product is called "full-spectrum", it means that everything was extracted from the plant. This includes CBD, CBN, terpenes, plant fats, chlorophyll, and everything else that makes up the chemical structure of the hemp plant. Many people believe that cannabinoids work best in their natural state and complement each other.

      Different methods of taking CBD

      Tinctures, vapes, topical creams - depending on why you're taking CBD, there's a different and potentially better method of taking it.  One note, your CBD product packaging should tell you how many milligrams is in it.  There are many products circulating that say "hemp oil" or "CBD" and do not contain how many milligrams are in them.  Always know how much you're taking.

      CBD Oil

      Originally the most common method of administering CBD extract, oils are still extremely popular. Some people simply administer the dose directly under the tongue and allow it to sit. 

      Topical CBD

      For burns, injuries, and other conditions of the skin, muscles, and joints that you want to treat with CBD, topical applications are a great choice. They consist of potent CBD extract in a soothing, natural balm that sticks where you put it to directly apply the effects of the CBD where you want them.

      Internal vs. Topical

      For the direct benefit to a very specific area, topicals are great, but if you want the full-body health effects of CBD, then taking it internally is the way to go.

      Fully Activated CBD Products (internal)

      At Fully Activated, we offer a broad range of potent, rigorously tested CBD products for you and your family.

      Gelcaps

      For strict dosage, easily ingested and easy-to-store, gel caps are a great way to take CBD internally without the messiness or taste of consuming the oil directly. 

      Vape Juice

      Okay so while this isn't ingested, it's still an internal application for CBD juice and one that many people find fun and appealing. Especially with full-spectrum vape juice, you can get the full flavor of the wonderful terpenes and all the benefits of CBD extract.

      Dog Treats

      Did you know dogs have an endocannabinoid system as well? Our dog treats can provide the same potent CBD benefits you enjoy to your furry friends as well in a delicious, pet-friendly treat!

      Full Spectrum Products (external)

      For burns, tattoo care, injuries, and other problems of the skin and muscles, a topical application of CBD can provide long-lasting benefits.

      Refreshing CBD Isolate Beverages to Make This Summer

      Refreshing CBD Isolate Beverages to Make This Summer

      As the warmth of summer lingers, there’s still time to enjoy an ice cold beverage outside or on a patio as the sun goes down. 

       

      We’re put together a short list of delicious, do-it-yourself summer CBD beverages to sip and relax.  Ease into your evenings with a refreshing treat!

       

      CBD isolate is derived from hemp and has been separated from all other cannabinoids. This means it can be up to 100 percent pure CBD, and it comes in many forms, like isolate powder.

       

      Summer Drinks Made with CBD Isolate

      Adding CBD isolate to your tasty summer drinks for adults may be a simple way to relax and alleviate some stress.  CBD isolate shouldn’t make you feel high either. It may, however, elevate your mood, ease body aches and pains, and potentially decrease levels of anxiety in some people.

       

      Try these easy drink recipes when you feel like kicking back with friends this summer. Unfortunately, we cannot legally advise you on how much CBD you should use in your beverages, so determining that is up to you!  It’s worth mentioning, too, that drinks that contain CBD are meant for adults only.


      Sweet Lime & Seltzer

      The lime is a nutritional powerhouse that’s packed full of antioxidants. Adding it to drinks gives you a big boost of vitamin C and helps your body fight off the free radicals that cause cancer and other chronic diseases. Sprinkling a little CBD isolate into a frosty, non-alcoholic sweet lime and seltzer could be a great way to relax on the patio after work.

      • 8 oz lime juice
      • 12 oz seltzer water
      • 4 oz simple syrup
      • Ice
      • Fresh lime wedges

      Fill four glasses with ice and pour the ingredients over. Garnish with fresh lime.

      Chill & indulge.


      Strawberry Citrus Smoothie

      When you mix up fresh and pureed strawberries and shake in a little orange juice and lemon zest, you have a tangy treat that boosts immunity and gives your taste buds a nice wake-up call. Stir in your CBD isolate.

      • 1 c fresh strawberries
      • 1 c fresh strawberry puree
      • 2 & 1/2 c orange juice
      • 2 T simple syrup
      • 2 T Grenadine
      • 1/3 c seltzer

      Mix in a pitcher and serve.

      Enjoy!
