CBD Buyers guide

Never used CBD products before? As a first-time buyer, it is vital you understand whether or not CBD oil is right for you. Here is all you need to know about our CBD oils, and the range of products we have to offer.

One of the biggest misconceptions regarding CBD oil is the idea that it comes from marijuana alone. Although CBD is found in marijuana plants, products that use CBD extracted from marijuana tend to contain higher concentrations of THC. Conversely, hemp-derived CBD oil is federally legal as the industrial hemp it is extracted from contains less than 0.3% THC.

Our CBD oil is made from sativa hemp, which originates from organic cultivation in the greenhouse. The CBD oil is obtained by CO2 extraction and subsequently decarboxylated. With this process, the CBD oil is gently heated and CBDA molecules are converted into active CBD. The oil contains all herbal active ingredients as well as cannabinoids, phenols, flavonoids and terpenes.

The effects of regular CBD usage, at an appropriate amount, have been proven to have many beneficial effects on not only your mental and physical health, but your quality of life also.

Regular usage can provide:

  • Pain Relief from Inflammation
  • Sleep Aid
  • Anxiety and Stress relief

Furthermore, physical health benefits include possible reductions in the likelihood of:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer

Deciding which CBD products to invest in to help with achieving a better overall quality of life can sometimes be a little overwhelming as a first-time buyer. However, we have done our best to provide a guide for our products, including information on how to take them and how much to take.

CBD Oils

Few really recognise what makes a high-quality CBD oil. First and foremost, it is the quality of the cannabis plants themselves; without pure, organic, expertly harvested plants, you will never get top-quality cannabidiol oil. At Horizon Labs, each of our products is made of non-GMO, organic, USA-grown hemp—simple, pure and effective.

The CBD concentration of a product is often mistaken for the dosage of the product, but they are in fact very different. The concentration refers to the overall amount of CBD by product weight, i.e. the strength of the CBD, measured in milligrams (mg). The dosage, however, is the recommended amount that should be taken within a given time frame, say 24 hours.

It is easy to take; simply take the CBD dropper and place the recommended amount of drops on your tongue and you’re all ready to go!

Recommended Amounts

You may use the following guide to determine your recommended dosage per dosing period, given your weight group:

Weight Group – 60 kg or less

For strong effects: 15 mg to 17 mg

CBD Edibles

Edibles are chewed and eaten, just like any other food item! After choosing from jellies, CBD gummies or lollipops, the CBD in edibles enters the digestive system, where the endocannabinoid system can begin to do its work. Like the rest of our products, they provide a great deal of promise in terms of helping to achieve everyday wellness.

The benefit of CBD edibles over other types of products is evident – they taste great and are easy to consume! They also offer an enhanced level of discretion to those who would like to maintain consumption of their cannabidiol during the day. Whether at work or at home, our CBD edibles can be eaten at any time of the day, giving you the opportunity to feel relaxed whenever and wherever.

CBD Skin Care

Thanks to their unparalleled calming, healing and anti-inflammatory properties, lots of CBD products even extend into the realms of skincare and beauty. CBD extracts and hemp-derived oils help ease aches and pains, and provide a soothing effect to your skin, helping maintain and improve skin complexion.

With a diverse choice of CBD Skin care products ranging from gentle hydrolate shampoos to intensive lip balms to soothing face creams, you can find all you need to prolong the health of your skin and add to your wellbeing. Our topicals can even be used to treat localized aches and pains or skin conditions in a discreet and soothing manner.

CBD Drinks – Tea & Coffee

CBD teas are mixtures of herbs that are combined with CBD to enhance their health benefits. While creating a bioavailable tea experience using hemp oil extracts, our teas provide an easy way to consume CBD oil, giving all the same health benefits, while tasting amazing at the same time! Simply put the teabag in boiled water as you would for any other tea, and within a couple of minutes, you’ll be set to enjoy a soothing stress-free experience.

Caffeine consumption can lead to a rather strong sensation for some, possibly causing jitters or putting us on edge. Our CBD infused coffee products can help take the subtle edge off, and make room for a calming experience. It can be naturally integrated into part of your morning coffee routine, and have you set for the day ahead!
