Are you overwhelmed shopping for CBD products? Jo is. Dive into this cannabidiol Q&A and learn the basics so you can shop for and consume CBD with confidence.
IMPORTANT LEGAL UPDATE: "In a decision likely only to add to the legal confusion around cannabidiol (CBD) in the United States, a federal appellate court in California has rejected an industry challenge to a DEA rule that effectively outlawed the cannabinoid." Read more here on Leafly. And here from The Denver Post. I'm working to figure out what that means for us as consumers. I'll update you with what I learn on Potcast 37. -Jo
'After the Show' Notes
Coconut Oil vs. MCT Oil vs. Lauric Acid: What Is MCT Oil Really?
I found a great blog by Dave Asprey, the entrepreneur who founded Bulletproof coffee. He does a great job of explaining the nuances and benefits of the various fatty acid oils. Bottom line - CBD oil products that use true MCT for its carrier oil are more potent and have a more immediate effect.
DIY CBD Oil:
Save money and do it yourself. It's easy, safe, and super duper legal.
Superior Carrier Oil - Bulletproof's Brain Octane Oil
Reputable CBD Source - Definitely shop around if you're versed in the search. If you have no clue, this is what I'd purchase to make a 50-state legal CBD oil with no THC.
Bottling Recommendation - I prefer this style of container, but go nuts.
DIY Recipe - They call it tincture in this recipe, but tinctures contain alcohol. This is a CBD Oil recipe.
CBD Product Recommendation for those that don't have time to DIY:
Eva Worldwide - Full-spectrum CBD options.
Eva supplements are 100% organic, vegan, and Fair Trade Certified (where available.) No Calories, No Fillers, 3 Ingredients per vegan capsule. Free of all major allergens. Safe for restricted diets & perfect for the conscious user.
