In search of natural pain and stress relief options, many turn to CBD (cannabidiol) in its oil form to create positive change.1 The good news is that there are various other forms of CBD available, from topicals and drops to edible pastilles and capsules.

CBD (cannabidiol) in its oil form

Topical CBD in the form of a gel may assist with the symptomatic relief of muscle pain and inflammation in the back and joints and minor sprains and strains. 2

CBD capsules are made in a similar way to regular CBD oils and taking them is as simple as popping one into your mouth and swallowing with a glass of water.   The dosage could not be any easier. Each dose is already measured out for you in each capsule – eliminating any guesswork involved.

For those who can’t take CBD in pill or capsule form, CBD drops offer an effective way to get all the benefits of CBD. Peak blood levels for this method, which involves placing liquid drops of CBD under your tongue, have been measured within about two hours.3

The emergence of CBD pastilles is a fun (and yummy) way of getting CBD benefits. CBD pastilles are created to emulate candy. They taste just like a sweet treat and are the perfect alternative for those who want to experience CBD’s benefits but shy away from the naturally strong flavour of CBD.
