The budtender (cannabis salesperson) says, “wonderful” and then asks you if you prefer a product that is an isolate, broad-spectrum or full spectrum. After you say huh? He goes on to ask you if you would prefer the CBD tincture, softgels, patch, cream, salve, lotion, bath bomb, cooking oil, coffee beans, dog treats, gummies, vape pen, drink packet, lip balm, salve stick, or chocolate bar, well you get the picture.
But before you open your mouth again, he asks if you want 250 mg, 500 mg 1000 mg or perhaps the 1500, 2000, 2500 or 3000 mg serving size. Well now you really need CBD because your head hurts. As he begins to talk to you about the 42 different flavors, you immediately yet discreetly use your fake call app to call yourself, so you can politely duck out of the store before you open your mouth and random noises come out.
Let’s dial in on some basics so you will be well-equipped for your next such encounter and have a great CBD buying experience. Although not the norm, the reality is that there are many wonderful quality CBD products, excellent CBD stores and some very knowledgeable and friendly CBD salespeople who will take great care of you. You just have to find the right people!
But the first the question you should ask yourself is why you are taking CBD. Which problem are you looking to solve? Do you want to take it as a daily supplement to assist your overall well-being? Has your doctor recommended it for a particular disease, or other issues such as pain, anxiety, sleep difficulties or some other problem? The reason why you are taking CBD will help narrow down the type of product you should purchase.

THC not CBD is responsible for the euphoric or “high” effect users feel. They both work on a system in your body called the endocannabinoid system.
