CBD oil has become a popular choice for consumers during the last decade. Its reputation as means of alleviating a variety of health conditions has created a demand for CBD products in all their forms. This has led to some confusion as to what the best option is for each individual.

It doesn’t help that some reports suggest that as much as 70% of CBD products contain less than the amount of advertised CBD. Others meanwhile, may carry trace contaminants that aren’t included in their labeling. This makes it more important than ever to choose the right brands.

If you’re asking yourself which CBD oil is best for me?’, then you’re in the right place. We cover all the basics and bring you up to speed on everything you need to know to buy the best CBD oil for your needs.

What are the main things to consider when buying the best CBD oil?

Here are the main concepts you need to understand before you make your purchase.

Let’s start with available types of CBD Oils:

1. Broad Spectrum CBD

The Broad Spectrum CBD contains all of the many compounds found in the harvested plant except for THC. The additional cannabinoids, flavonoids, and other natural compounds included with the pure CBD have the potential to give increased health benefits while avoiding all of the downsides associated with THC.

THC is currently a legally controlled substance in Ireland and some consumers have high sensitivity to it. In either case, you don’t have to worry about it with this variety of CBD.

2. Full Spectrum CBD

The Full Spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds included in the broad spectrum variety as well as THC. The potential advantage to this is the so-called ‘entourage effect’. It is speculated that the interactions of the full spectrum of compounds enhance all of the potential health benefits of pure CBD oil.

The drawbacks can be that some users are highly sensitive to THC and don’t enjoy its effects. Here in Ireland, the substance is legally controlled and is not for sale as a health supplement.

3. CBD Isolate

This is the purest form of CBD oil. All other compounds have been removed including every trace of THC. This can be an excellent choice for those looking exclusively for the effects of CBD and for those with high sensitivity to THC.

4. CBD Oil vs Hemp Seed Oil

There is often some confusion between these two. While hemp seed oil can have great dietary health benefits and can add a distinctive flavour to your salads and other dishes, it has no CBD content. CBD oil, on the other hand, is derived from the flower of the hemp plant and may contain pure to full-spectrum CBD oil.

However, there are some Hemp Seed oil products that are packed with CBD as well, such as: LVWell CBD Silver Seal 5000mg CBD 30ml Hemp Seed Oil

5. THC Content

In jurisdictions like Ireland where THC is controlled, this can lead to some understandable paranoia on the part of the consumer. CBD oil for sale in health food shops and here on Xmania are THC-free. You never have to worry about testing positive or having a reaction to any of our products.

6. Concentration

Although there is no THC in CBD oil sold in Ireland, the product comes in different concentrations. These commonly range from 300mg in a 30ml bottle at the lower end to 5000mg in a 10ml towards the top end.  As you can imagine, that’s quite a difference.

This means that in the first case, you will receive 10mg of CBD per 1ml. In the latter, you will get 500mg! If you are starting out on your CBD oil journey, make sure to check the strength and go with a lower concentration first.

7. Dosage

There are no official guidelines as to how much you should use. Once you have determined the concentration, you should begin with a low dose and then gradually increase the amount until the desired effect takes place. This minimizes the risk of any unwanted effects and enables you to optimize your dosage.

Using CBD Oil

Oil tinctures with droppers are perfect for this kind of fine-tuning. You can keep track of exactly how much you use daily. If you’re not getting the results you need then try switching to a higher concentration or increasing your dosage.

8. Your reasons for using CBD

CBD oil is classified as a ‘novel’ food product meaning that it was not widely available in the EU before 15th May 1997. As a food product, it is entirely safe to consume, however, it is not possible to make any health claims about it within the EU.

Some of the reasons people choose to use CBD are the following:

  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Pain relief, particularly chronic pain
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Insomnia and sleep quality
  • Alleviate the side effects of medication
  • Skincare issues
  • Epilepsy and anti-convulsive effects

If you have specific reasons for wanting to use this oil you need to research the literature surrounding its use beyond a food substance. There are plenty of published papers online for you to review, and we encourage you to look at these before you decide to use CBD.

You can find some resources included in our reference section below.

9. Edible vs Oil/Tincture vs Spray

CBD oil comes in a variety of forms and all have their advantages and disadvantages. Oils are particularly good for those wishing to control their dose as you can measure out the drops and keep the dropper by your bedside or in your bathroom cabinet. They can also easily be added to food and drinks.

CBD Gummies are another popular option for those on the go who want to be able to easily able to reach into a bag or pocket during the day. They also taste great and come in a variety of flavours but may have ingredients you would prefer to exclude by using the oil-based version.

Sprays are very convenient for those who are on the go a lot but don’t enjoy eating gummies. The dosage isn’t as precise as an oil dropper but the convenience is excellent.
