A Guide to Choosing the Right CBD Product for You

You likely have heard about CBD from coworkers, friends, or family members. That’s not surprising, as the sales of CBD products have skyrocketed since they became legal in 2018. So if you haven’t as of yet tried CBD gummies or other products, you might want a little help in deciding which one is right for you. At PharmaCBD, we’re always eager to answer questions and help our new and current customers decide on the best product to serve their needs. So here’s a quick guide that should help you along.

Different Types of Products

The first thing that you should decide on is the type of product that would fit your preferences and lifestyle the best. We carry four different categories of products, and each has specific nuances and benefits. Some of these types of products also have additional ingredients to address specific issues as well. Here are the basic forms our CBD products come in, along with additional information about that type of product.


Our edibles are delightful gummy candy in many shapes and flavors. You simply eat part or all of the edible and enjoy the benefits of the gummy and the delicious flavor.

Edibles are a little more convenient than tinctures. Each gummy comes in a precise dose, so you don’t have to worry about measuring. Edibles take longer than tinctures before you feel the benefits, but those benefits last longer than tinctures.


Tinctures are phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil blended with a natural carrier oil like MCT. The tincture bottles, themselves, come with a convenient dropper to measure the oil. The oil is then placed under the tongue and held there for up to two minutes – then swallowed.

Tinctures allow you to adjust the amount to your exact dosage needs finely, and they come in a range of flavors and strengths. This type of product is fairly fast-acting, and the benefits last for a few hours.


We carry a full line of CBD hemp flower, prerolls, and blunts if you enjoy a flavorful and aromatic smoke. These CBD smoke products produce results in minutes. However, the effects don’t last as long as with edibles and tinctures.


Our salves blend phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil and other natural ingredients like shea butter and essential oils. These salves are used to provide relief to a specific area of the body.

Typical Scenarios and Solutions

Now that you know the different forms that our CBD products come in, you’ve probably got a good idea of the type of product that may work best for you. The next thing you want to address is why you are using the product and any extenuating circumstances. With that in mind, here are some typical scenarios we see and a recommended solution for each.

Products for the Sleep Deprived

Some of our customers have trouble falling and staying asleep. In many cases, they don’t like to smoke and don’t want to be bothered with measuring out their CBD dosage.

In this scenario, we wouldn’t recommend our hemp flower or tinctures. However, we would suggest our Triple Layer PM Bears with Melatonin. By enjoying one of these full-spectrum CBD gummies a couple of hours before bed, our customer should be ready for slumber when the time comes.

Products for Fitness Lovers

There are a number of our customers who love to work out at the gym. However, strenuous workouts leave their muscles and joints feeling overworked. Also, since most of these customers don’t smoke, we wouldn’t recommend an inhalant solution.

In this case, we would recommend our Flagship Full Spectrum Tincture Oil to give them support against discomfort throughout the day. Then, after their workout, we suggest our PharmaCBD Topical Salve. By applying this salve directly to their problem areas, our customers will find immediate, concentrated results.

Products to Help Lifestyle Strain

Quite a few of our clients have jobs that create a strain on their minds and bodies. They tend to come home from work at the end of the day feeling emotionally worn out but also have trouble sleeping at night.

In scenarios such as this, we would recommend our Organic Mixed Fruit Snacks to help our clients stay calm and focused throughout the day. They are vegan-friendly, delicious, and convenient enough to carry in a pocket or purse so that our customers have a snack available when needed. Then, we would suggest that our clients enjoy our Bubba Kush Prepackaged Flower when they get home from work. This will help them to get ready for a great night’s sleep.

Products without THC as Part of an Overall Routine

Most of our clients are looking to incorporate a CBD product into their holistic wellness routine. However, many, for employment reasons, are afraid of failing a drug test. Therefore, even though the trace amount of THC included in most of our products will not cause intoxication or likely show up on a drug test, we definitely would not recommend those products.

In cases such as these, we would suggest our THC Free Tincture Oil. It has all of the benefits of a full spectrum CBD, but we have taken the additional step of removing all traces of THC for our customer’s peace of mind.
