“The most common symptoms I treat with CBD are inflammatory conditions and it is also often used for pain,” Dr. Amin says. “Dosing is patient dependent. I always start low and go slowly. I have found that 15mg of CBD is a good starting dose for most patients. You have to be careful after that and titrate each patient individually due to the chance of potentially increasing anxiety and depressive symptoms. I have found the most convenient way for most of my patients to consume CBD is through tincture form. But capsules and edibles are also great ways to consume CBD on a daily basis.”
These days I’m a believer. It’s difficult to ignore the fact that Epidiolex—the CBD-based epilepsy medication—was approved by the F.D.A last year. Or that athletes are abandoning NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen) for greener alternatives. Then there are Alfie Dingley and Billie Caldwell in the UK: Their cases involving rare forms of epilepsy have prompted UK home secretary Sajid Javid to say that specialists will soon be able to prescribe cannabis-based medication. Beyond that, nearly 7% of Americans are already using CBD—and given the population, that’s a staggering number.
Let’s say you’re in no mood for edibles, vapes, or capsules. Or none of the aforementioned delivery methods suit your lifestyle. Simply buy a full-spectrum CBD tincture such as the one Ojai Energetics offers. It’s unlike most tinctures, which are clear and oil based. This one is a deep moss green—extracted from whole plant—and water soluble. So you can put a dropper full into your coffee, chai, smoothie, or anything else really. And you can be sure you’ll be consuming all of it. (There won’t be any residue sticking to the sides of your glass—the way it is with many other oil-based drops.) Another plus is that it’s surprisingly sweet for something that looks like a bitter green juice made of 100% kale. I typically use two full droppers in my (home-brewed) chai and it’s helped tremendously with post-workout soreness.
Mighty Health’s Balance formula is exactly what you need if you don’t care for chocolate, tinctures, olive oil, gummies, or vapes. Balance comes in capsule form. And while it contains a good dose of CBD, it’s not just a CBD pill. It’s a neutraceutical, which is technically not recognized as a separate category by the F.D.A—instead, neutraceuticals are pretty much treated like dietary supplements. This one in particular contains ashwagandha, L-Theanine, theobromine, and curcumin. I know, it sounds very Goop-y. But the most important thing is its per-capsule CBD content, which is a good dose at 10mg.
Kiva Confections’ Terra Bites come in two flavors: chocolate-covered coffee beans and . [+] chocolate-covered blueberries. It’s great when paired with a CBD-only edible.

Nothing is added to and nothing is removed from our Original Formula. Original formulation is easily made by activating the CBD while still retaining the other naturally occurring plant constituents in hemp (such as minor cannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids, plant sterols, vitamins E & K and other bio active plant compounds), just as nature intended.
Our CBD Softgels are beautiful in their simplicity.
Always from EU certified hemp seeds. Non-GMO. Vegetarian. Gluten Free. Always third party tested.
Some find that a CBD softgel is just the thing before bed – while others find it activating and never take it after a certain time of day. And some find that it doesn’t change their sleep or energy in any way. There’s no way to know which category you fall into without finding out what works for you.
Each softgel with our Total Plant Complex Formula extracts contains 10 milligrams of CBD. Most people start with one in the morning and one in the evening – but everyone is different. You have to experiment to find the sweet spot that works for you.
Humans all share an endocannabinoid system. The reason we cultivated cannabis so early in our history is because it agrees with us. It’s not only CBD and the minor cannabinoids. It’s not only the terpenes that give the plant its rich smell and change how we interact with the cannabinoids. It’s also because of the rich fatty acids, more abundant in the true agricultural hemp that we use. These fatty acids from the plant are used to produce its cannabinoids – and they’re also used by our own brain and bodies to produce our own endocannabinoids.
