If you’ve landed here on this page, you’ve probably at least heard of Cannabidiol, better known as CBD. Perhaps you’ve already dabbled and are looking for fresh recommendations, or maybe you’re simply downright curious. No matter the reason, we are glad you’re here! Whether you’re completely new to CBD or not, there is always more to learn about this naturally occurring compound. Below, we’re exploring the multitude of forms CBD currently comes available in, whether it’s oil, gummies, or gels.

What the heck is CBD and why should I consider exploring its benefits?

This is an excellent question and one we encounter quite a bit. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a healthful element within the cannabis plant that, unlike THC, is not psychoactive. Instead, CBD offers medicinal use cases without any feeling of being “high.”

This fact is especially true for hemp-derived CBD, which is a very common form of the compound that is completely legal at the federal level in the United States. Now that we’ve gotten the important differentiators out of the way, we can explore more about what CBD can offer you in your daily life and several shapes that treatment can take.

Lucky for you, we’ve already compiled a detailed list of some of the potential benefits of CBD you can explore in length here. Next, we want to break down the physical forms of CBD at your disposal, to help you better decide what may be the best option(s) for you to try. Let’s dig in.

Five forms of CBD currently available and worth considering

As promised, below is a list of several of the more popular forms of CBD. This is more of a general categorical list, but should serve as an excellent starting point as you start to search for CBD products that pique your interest. Let’s begin with the oils, shall we?

  • Sublingual Oils
  • Since oil is the natural form CBD arrives in when it is derived from the hemp plant, it remains a very popular option for those incorporating it into their daily lives, but those forms still vary. For instance, sublingual CBD oils are those that can be directly ingested by dropping it under your tongue. Moody’s Medicinals currently offers this form of CBD in a peppermint flavor to help cool and refresh your mouth while simultaneously treating whatever ails you.

  • Topical Oils
  • Another form of CBD oil is focused on topical application rather than ingestion. This form targets pain and muscle treatment and is not likely to offer any mental benefits like reducing anxiety or helping with proper slumber.

  • Gummies/Snacks/Drinks
  • If you’re interested in sublingual CBD but perhaps want something a little tastier, there are tons of options available. One of the more popular forms of CBD is the gummy. These are easy to eat and carry with you on the go, and are usually quite delicious. For example, Moody’s Medicinals offers both full-spectrum and Delta 8 gummies that we obviously recommend checking out. In addition to gummies, there is a growing market of snacks and drinks that contain CBD. Who says you can’t munch and have your CBD too?

  • Gels/Creams
  • Similar to the CBD oil, another topical form is a gel or cream. It’s essentially the same idea and benefits of topical oil, but usually less messy and a bit easier to apply. Especially since you can roll it on, targeting specific areas of discomfort more easily without getting oil all over your clothes. Gels can also add a cooling factor to sore muscles or arthritis.

  • Pre-rolls/Vapes
  • Last but least is getting your CBD benefits in the form of inhalation, whether that’s smoking a pre-roll or vaping. No tobacco, no nicotine, no additives. Just the naturally occurring compounds in hemp outlined above. If you happen to be a smoker, this form of CBD could serve as an effective alternative that may help calm you in your daily stressors.

    Try CBD for yourself and see what works for you

    To truly maximize the benefits of CBD for you personally in your day-to-day life, it’s worth exploring as many forms of the naturally occuring compound as you can. Luckily, there are a lot of options available to you, all in various sizes, doses, and flavors on top of that.

    Time for the shameless plug. Moody’s Medicinals currently offers a robust Wellness Bundle that includes ingestible oil, gummies, and healing gel. We think that’s a great place to start on your CBD journey, but it’s truly up to you at the end of the day. At the very least, we hope you are better informed about CBD and its various forms, and truly hope you find the ideal option to suit your health needs.
