The Difference Between CBD and THC

CBD is everywhere; oils, balms, cocktails, coffee, the list seems endless. However, recent studies reveal that the majority of Americans have never tried CBD. Further, most do not know the difference between CBD and THC.

We believe if more people better understand the differences between CBD and THC, then more people would be receptive to trying CBD recovery products and the opportunity to experience the health benefits associated with its use.

New to CBD… where to start?

The other day I was taking my bike off the rack in my garage when my neighbor came up and inquired about CBD. We both ride, and my neighbor still plays hoops regularly. Anyway, he inquired about CBD balms, and asked me what he should try? I asked him, “What kind of results are you looking for with the balm?”

What form of CBD is best for me?

What form of CBD is best for me?

There are dozens of ways to ingest CBD. Some of the most popular include topical creams and balms, oils, and capsules.

CBD Oils and Sublingual Administration:
Oils are popular due to ease of consumption, accurate dosing, overall high-quality, and effectiveness. Cannabidiol oil is meant to be consumed orally and most often used sublingually. Sublingual administration involves placing drops under your tongue and holding it there for several seconds before swallowing. Using CBD sublingually is one of the fastest forms of consumption. 

CBD Capsules:
For those who are not fond of the taste of CBD oils, capsules are an excellent alternative. Similar to CBD oil products, capsules offer people the benefits of CBD paired with ease of consumption and accurate dosing. 

CBD Topical Creams:

Topical creams are a unique product because CBD can be mixed with other essential nutrients such as lavender, tea tree and aloe to heighten the benefits of CBD. 

How long does it take to feel the effects?
You may feel the effects as quickly as 10-15 minutes when sublingually administered, and up to an hour or two for oral ingestion. It’s important to note that when taking CBD orally for the first time it’s best to take consistently for at least three weeks to give your body adequate time to acclimate and respond. 

We have found most people report feeling the effects of our balm in as little as 15 minutes. It’s important to understand that there are many factors that impact the speed and efficiency of absorption. By experimenting you’ll find what works best for you.

Considering the Number of Milligrams of CBD in Your Hemp Oil:
When buying CBD oil, it’s important that you understand the significance of product potency. You will find that the amount of CBD you are paying for has little to do with the size of the bottle. A 15 ml bottle of CBD oil could contain only a few milligrams (mg) of CBD, or it could contain thousands. Product potency is a significant consideration. It’s essential to know how many mg of CBD are in the hemp oil product you select. For example, a 30 ml bottle of CBD that contains 250 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) will be priced substantially lower than a 30 ml bottle that contains 1000 mg of CBD. When the CBD is more concentrated, you will need to use less product per dose.

What dose should I take?
Similar to anesthetics and analgesics, each person will metabolize and react differently to CBD. We recommend starting with a lower dose, and increasing as necessary.

How it's Made Matters!

How it’s made matters...

Keola uses natural genetic strains of full spectrum phytocannabinoid rich hemp grown under strict guidelines using naturally organic farming practices. Our hemp is sourced from the largest vertically integrated grower and manufacturer in North America. This provides strict control over safe, consistent, cultivation, harvesting and production.

Consistent Quality

The best products start with the best ingredients. Not all hemp is created equal and not all CBD is the same. We utilize our own proprietary strain of hemp naturally high in Cannabinoids. Each plant on average produces 18% Cannabidiol (CBD), 1-2% Cannabigerol (CBG), 1-2% Cannabinol (CBN), 1-2% Cannabichromene (CBC). Our vertical integration and rigorous quality control allow us to create the best products with the highest potencies and purity. 

More CBD

Keola uses high concentrations of CBD in all of our products. The synergistic compounds found in our plants have evolved naturally to support high amounts of phytocannabinoids. We utilize full spectrum CBD oil with Zero THC and employ patent-pending and proprietary water soluble nano emulsion CBD formulations. This insures maximum absorption and bioavailability.

Non-Psychoactive

All hemp used in our products utilize chromatography to remove the THC from the oil extract without disturbing the other naturally synergistic compounds leaving intact the full spectrum profile of synergistic non-psychoactive phytocannabiniods and compounds such as CBG, CBN, CBC, and Terpenes. Zero THC means our products produce no psychoactive effects or side effects associated with THC.
