We love the new cbd product ideas. They promise to calm anxiety, reduce pain and increase well being and are becoming so popular, so fast that many of us are wondering which products are the most effective and if we should give one a try.
Our mission is to give you a way to compare the top cbd brand names and set up a process to help you decide which product to buy first. And then give you the encouragement to do it. A level of certainty is needed to take these steps and we want to help you get there.
There's a lot to consider here, but we're sure after you take a run at it you will find that CBDIDEAS is a good place to read current articles on cbd culture and news, compare new products, and quickly browse through the most entertaining newsletters and Instagram cannabis accounts to learn more.
ALL ABOUT CBD
Now that you’ve looked around a bit at the cannabis publications and Instagram accounts, let’s talk about what you need to know about cbd before you order a cbd product to take into your home and share with your family and pets. First off, although it would be nice, you don't need to know everything.
Do you really need to know how to diagram the molecular structure of cbd? Or how cbd reacts with your endocannibinoid system? All that science is important so maybe you do... but maybe not yet. First things first and there are some things you definitely do need to know first in advance of buying a cbd product.
To start, you'll want to know if your cbd product is made using an extract of whole plants (with some thc in the mix) or cbd isolate (no thc). If you're drug tested on the job or just don't want to get high at all, this is critical information. On the other hand, if you're not subjected to drug tests and want to benefit from the 'entourage effect', you may want to have a little thc in the mix.
Then you'll want to know the exact percentage % of cbd vs thc in the product you're buying. Whether your cbd product has more or less than 0.3% thc determines it's legality, where you can buy it and where you can travel with it.
Then you'll really want to know the purity of the product you're buying. When you get down to it, nohthing is more important than that.
CBD-ONLY vs CBD+THC
Our top cbd-only products are arranged into categories below like 'cbd and sleep' and 'cbd for pain' and 'cbd for anxiety, etc. These different categories can be thought of as the big picture but there's a lot of overlap when you drill down. Sleep products also work to relieve anxiety. Pain products can also help sleep. Separating high dose products is more about packaging to save you money than the uniqueness of a high dose - you can increase the cbd dose of any product just by taking more. Cbd is cbd.
Adding more than 0.3% of thc to the mix in your cbd product makes it psychoactive and as such it are decidedly not legal for online sales or transport across state lines. Products with thc in the mix ARE legal to purchase in states that have legalized recreational use if you're over 21 and for patients licensed by a doctor for medical marijuana use.
CBD AND PAIN
The cbd salves, tinctures, drinks and edibles in the product collection linked below and in the submenus are widely appreciated for their ability to relieve pain and discomfort.

CBD AND SLEEP
Can't go to sleep? Wake up in the middle of the night? If you’re someone who regularly requires sleep aids, try a cbd product that's easy on the system. One of these holistic sleep remedies should be a go-to choice on your nightstand.
Now that you’re bleary-eyed and over-informed it’s time to narrow the list of potential purchases down, way down. You’ve got a life to get back to! and your dog wants to go out.
Click COMPARE in our main menu and browse the submenus. Find the Facebook pages of the products on your short list. Are these faces you can trust? Is there a compelling story in their About Us page or in their Blog? Make your short list shorter. One more step to go...
Reading reviews of the cbd products on your short list can be the last step in helping you decide what to buy today. Select REVIEWS in the submenu under COMPARE and start in. If you want to look back to check out a product you saw earlier on this site, find our SEARCH bar and type in the name of the product or publication you’re looking for.
If after all this you still can’t decide what to buy or are short of time and your dog is staring at you, go back to the TOP BRANDS submenu under COMPARE and choose a product from the short list of top brands. You can’t go wrong ordering from these well-known companies to start. If you learn something new you can do better the next time.Narrow your shopping list down to 1 item.
BUY SOMETHING! 🐸
That’s right, buy something. You don’t want to start over and go through this process again for at least another 30 days (or when the product you buy now needs to be reordered). 😉 Navigate back thru your recent cbdideas search and find the picture of the product you have decided to buy. Click on it to be taken to the manufacturer's website where you can order direct from them at their best price. Or take your phone in to the local dispensary and show them the picture of what you want. Trust your decision. No worries. You and your dog are gonna be fine with it.
There’s a lot available to read on cannabis products and culture in the media, from established magazines like LEAFLY to regional websites like the CANNIFORNIAN to boutique newsletters like FRESH TOAST and HIGH TIDE and THE NEW SMOKER to reviewers like CBDREVIEWS to experts like PROJECT CBD. You can jump directly to one of these cool reads by clicking on their logo in the right column (or bottom of every page on mobile).

INSTAGRAM vs FACEBOOK
Let me tell you what I know about using Instagram vs Facebook as a way to interact with the cannabis community.
Every day I update the /cbdideas Facebook page with the most current articles, images and content I can find or produce and I'm always hopeful that I will wake up to find the cannabis community enjoying and sharing the content I am so fascinated with. In reality though, all my Facebook pages are stuck in time like a well groomed but abandoned ghost town.
It turns out there's no way for the people who would love the content in these pages to know they're there. This is because Facebook and Google have defined any content I post that uses the word 'cbd' to be promoting the sale or use of illegal drugs, which is against their rules. In other words, I can create a cannabis page on Facebook. I just can't promote it.
After a year stymied with only my neice and 17 others following /cbdideas on Facebook, it became obvious that I needed to go find my audience elsewhere ...so I opened @cbdideas accounts on Instagram, Reddit, Twitter and Pinterest. On Instagram I immediately connected with the large, active cannabis community that hangs out there. By large I mean everyone...
CBD + THC PRODUCTS
Then again, if you are not liable to being drug tested and are in a community surrounded by legal dispensaries, you may want to consider purchasing a product with a bit more THC in the mix to gain the benefits of the entourage effect.
Switching from a cbd-only product to a cbd+thc product can mean starting your search over in our age-restricted section, found by selecting CBD+THC in the main menu.
There you can read about the entourage effect and consider buying popular cbd+thc products like VET CBD (look in CA) or popular brands like FAIRWINDS (look in WA) or WAKE & BAKE (look in EDIBLES). Take a preview look at the CBD+THC collection by clicking the blue button below.
