Our Hemp Future

hemp, future sustainability, hemp as a source of food, hemp as a source of fuel, hemp as a source of medicine, hemp as a source of paper, hemp as a source of plastic, hemp as a source of textile, our hemp future, sustainable hemp

Sometimes we need to get out of our daily routines and echo chambers to see the big picture. It allows us to aim high and feel part of something much larger than us. Something so important that it keeps us going no matter what.

We can apply this to the wild-wild-west world of hemp. CBD is still as popular as ever, especially when mixed without cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, and others. Then came Delta 8, but where is this all going?

It is becoming very apparent that cannabinoids are extremely beneficial to our bodies. It is safe to say that what is good for our bodies is also good for our planet, right? We did evolve over millions of years here, so why wouldn’t it? Well, it’s actually excellent for our planet, something that we are calling Our Hemp Future.

Hemp as a Source of Food

Our modern civilization relies a lot on wheat, grains, corn, and soy. These crops use up huge areas of land, water, and need to be sprayed with pesticides. Some are even genetically modified to withstand pesticides and all are heavily processed. Doesn’t sound very sustainable, does it?

Hemp seeds are packed with nutrients. Just 3 tablespoons contain:

  • 9.5 grams of protein
  • 14.6 grams of fat
  • 2.6 grams of carbs
  • 1.2 grams of fiber
  • 0.45 grams of sugar

Who said you can’t be a keto and a vegan?! But that is an impressive amount of protein and fat, for sure it will get you through a few hours without feeling hungry. And since there is hardly any sugar, you won’t experience any sugar spikes. And the icing on top? Hemp does not need any pesticides. It is naturally resistant to insects and predators.

Hemp also doesn’t need as much water as other industrial crops. Are you seeing Our Hemp Future, yet? But there is more. Much more.

Hemp as a Source of Medicine

Hemp has been used as a medicine since 2700BCE and was first used in ancient China when Emperor Shen-Nung developed and used it as a pain relief ailment in ointments and teas.

Even the Romans used hemp for pain relief with Dioscorides writing a pharmacopeia and mentioning the medicinal benefits of hemp. During the Muslim empire, their medical industry also knew the immense benefits of the plant, citing anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits.

In the west, there is a rich history of industrial hemp throughout the British Empire and the newly formed United States. But research into cannabinoids started in the 1970s when the market really opened up with the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Today, we can see a huge variety of pure CBD, CBG, CBA, CBN products, mixed together, like CBDa CBGa products, or mixed with different essential oils and ingredients for a variety of purposes. There are many research studies and reports about the potential of CBD and other cannabinoids as medicine, so Our Hemp Future looks very promising.

Hemp As a Source of Textiles

Just in case you don’t know what textiles are, they are products that are made from weaving fibers. Traditionally, and for many decades, cotton has been (and still is) the #1 crop used in textiles. Wool and silk are also used, but very sparingly.

Hemp fibers are impressive. According to CFDA.com,

Hemp produces 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax on the same land, and has the highest yield per acre of any natural fiber.


And growing hemp, in general, is very easy. It grows fast and in large quantities. As a textile, hemp has been known to be similar to linen, which moves easily with the body, is breathable, and can be worn throughout different seasons. Hemp linen starts out pretty stiff but softens with each wash. Are you liking how Our Hemp Future is looking?

Hemp As a Source of Paper Products

If there is anything that seems wasteful, it’s paper products. Paper towels, toilet paper, paper tissues, paper plates, paper napkins – the list just goes on and on. Is there a truly sustainable alternative? Hemp.

Hemp has been used for paper for thousands of years. It was used from China to the Middle East, even our founders used it to pen the Declaration of Independence. Don’t know what that is?! Go read about it here. That said, hemp is a great alternative to trees. Trees are extremely important to our biosphere, so deforestation can be devastating, plus they take a long time to grow.

Hemp grows fast and does not need a lot of water or pesticides. Here are some more benefits from Ministry of Hemp:

  • 1 acre of Hemp can produce as much paper as 4-10 acres of trees over a 20-year cycle.
  • Hemp stalks grow in 4 months, whereas trees take 20-80 years.
  • Hemp has a higher concentration of cellulose than wood, the principal ingredient in paper.
  • Trees are made up of only 30% cellulose, requiring the use of toxic chemicals to remove the other 70%. Hemp, on the other hand, can have up to 85% cellulose content.
  • Hemp has lower lignin content than wood. Hemp contains 5-24% lignin whereas wood has 20-35%. This is advantageous as lignin must be removed from the pulp before it can be processed as paper.
  • Hemp paper is more durable than trees. Hemp paper does not yellow, crack, or deteriorate like tree paper.
  • Wider use of hemp paper can help sustainability efforts to reduce deforestation.

After reading the above, it is just a know-brainer, that hemp should be used as a source for paper products. We should at least try and gradually introduce it into the market. Consumers might gravitate toward paper products made from hemp if they know how sustainable hemp can be.

Hemp As a Source for Plastics

One of the most disturbing facts about petroleum plastics is that they take 100s of years to decompose. Beaches of plastic have been found in the Pacific Ocean – it’s truly a sad sight to see. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Hemp can replace petroleum for our plastic needs – sustainably since it is biodegradable.

There is a fun fact that the hemp industry likes to throw around. Henry Ford, apparently, built a car in 1941 that was made from hemp plastic and wheat straw. He proved that it was 10 times stronger than steel by smashing it with an ax. No damage or scratches were found.

How is plastic made from hemp? Hemp has been found to contain 65%-70% cellulose, which is a major ingredient in creating plastics. The process, according to The Planet Voice, can be long, but it is worth it for a sustainable future. Furthermore, we know that with investments and human ingenuity, we will figure it out – as we always do.

Read more here to get excited about Our Hemp Future.

Hemp As a Source for Fuel

No, we are not kidding. Biofuels are a thing – it’s called ethanol, which is dominated by the corn industry, but let’s back up a little. Fossil fuels, or Petroleum, are falling out of favor for many reasons, but mostly because it is not renewable, which causes wars and dependency on other countries, which sometimes becomes hostile. That said, biofuels are renewable and can be grown anywhere in any country, particularly if it’s Hemp.

Hemp can provide two types of biofuel: bioethanol and biodiesel. How much, you ask? A hectare of hemp can create 780 liters or 270 gallons of biofuel. Biodiesel made from hemp (and other sources) is biodegradable so it burns without producing sulfur dioxide. However, there are still some issues, since hemp cultivation remains costly. But, as mentioned before, further investments and focus will produce solutions to this.

Our Hemp Future is Needed to fuel a modern civilization sustainably

As you can see, there are many ways that hemp can contribute to a more sustainable future. A modern civilization can easily run on the hemp industry. Are there setbacks? Yes, but human ingenuity has shown that it can overcome difficulties. That’s why we are launching the Our Hemp Future initiative. We want a bright future for humanity without the need to sacrifice.

So, we will be investing our profits into realizing this ultimate goal of everyone living a fruitful life on this planet without the guilt and burden of hurting it. We will be giving an extra 5% discount on every purchase, and you will be part of building this vision of the future without the need for rationing, but to live life with abundance and in harmony with nature.

Let’s keep the vision of our founders alive and live it for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Best CBD Products of 2021

cbd, hemp, best cbd products, best hemp products, the best cbd product of 2021, the best hemp products of 2021

While 2021 is coming to a close, it’s nice to look back and see what happened. Why? It’s important to reminisce, celebrate and say goodbye to the year we are in, to look forward to the new year ahead.

In our case, it is to see what our customers bought in 2021 to help us plan better for 2022. Although the CBD industry has seen so many changes, especially with the price drops and thousands of companies joining and dropping out, there are some great insights we can share with you in this post.

It is important to note the CBD Online Store has over 150 CBD/hemp products, so making this list is a big deal. That said, here are the top 10 best selling CBD/Hemp products for 2021:

10. CBD Oil Tincture – 4000MG

This one is definitely NOT a surprise. Not only are you getting a 3 month supply of CBD oil, but you are also getting it from a true seed-to-table company. RYTE CBD owns the entire process, from the cultivation of the hemp, extraction, manufacturing, and packaging. The quality of their products can stand up to any “luxury” product but at 50% of the cost. This one is a no-brainer, and we use it ourselves religiously.

9. CBD Capsules – 25mg of CBD – Raw and Uncut

This one also was not a surprise. Everyone seems to really love many of the products from CBD FTP. What can it be? Well for one, they are just a great company focused on creating products FOR THE PEOPLE. They also make sure that all their CBD products are uncut, raw, and always tested for purity and potency. Headquartered right here in south Orange County, CBD FTP will be around for a long time!

8. Dark Unrefined CBD Salve (Topical Balm)

CBD creams are one of the reasons we started the CBD Online Store. One of our founders tried a certain CBD cream and it got rid of his psoriasis, which he had for over 20 years. Now, this is anecdotal evidence and should not be used as a correlation in the general population, but it is what convinced some of us that there is more to CBD, and it wasn’t a fad. That said, we have many CBD creams in the store, but the one from CBD FTP did very well. Probably because of it being dark and unrefined.

7. Delta 8 Gummies – 25mg

Delta 8 has taken the industry by storm. But at the time it happened, it was a lifesaver. Many farmers were convinced about the projected demand for CBD, especially after the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, so many of them farmed 100s of thousands of acres of hemp. Unfortunately, even though the demand WAS high, it did not meet the projections.

Thankfully, Delta 8 extracted from hemp was federally legal. So now all that excess hemp can be used and the market was flooded with edibles, flower, capsules, and oil. These gummies do very well because they are delicious, potent and most importantly: clean.

6. CBD/CBG Cream – Pain Relief – Full Spectrum

Again, we believe in the potential healing benefits of CBD creams, but add in CBG and you have an even better product. Nobody does this better than Kurativ CBD. A company based in Los Angeles, CA, they really are an amazing company with an amazing history. Their products speak for themselves, and you’ll see more of them on this list.

5. CBD/CBN Vape Cartridge – 1000mg – Uncut and Unrefined

CBD vape cartridges were a huge hit in 2020. It launched our store and put us on the map. However, in 2021 the market slowed down. Probably because of the passage of the PACT ACT, which required companies to verify age (a good thing), but it also forbid USPS from shipping any vape products. Apparently, UPS and FedEx followed suit, so many of us were forced to use other means of shipping. That increased the cost and requiring a signature increased it even more. That said, CBD vapes still did well.

This specific CBD vape is a hybrid mixed with CBN, a known cannabinoid that helps with relaxation and sleep. It’s also the most potent CBD vape we have.

4. CBD/CBG Oil Tincture – Full Spectrum

The mixing of different cannabinoids has its benefits. And it’s apparent in this top ten list. CBD/CBG is particularly popular because CBG has been shown to increase the pain-relieving effects of CBD. Well, it has for our customers. Being full-spectrum is also beneficial since you are using extracts of the whole plant, which includes many other minor cannabinoids. Read the differences between extracts here.

3. CBD Gummies – 600mg

CBD gummies have been popular since the beginning of the industry. The reason being is that most people do not like the taste of hemp, so gummies naturally covered that up. These particular CBD gummies by Feel Good Edibles have been in our CBD store since the beginning. We tried them and we were hooked. Their texture was so unique and the taste was so good. Moreover, they worked! You can’t go wrong with these CBD gummies.

2. CBD Vape Cartridges – 1000MG – 4Pack

Yes, CBD FTP makes the list again.

These particular 1000mg CBD vape cartridges were extremely popular in 2020 and were our number one seller with new customers. But in 2021, they wanted the 4-pack so they can have different terpene flavors for variety. It would also last them for 3-4 months AND they can take advantage of the discount for buying in bulk. Of course, uncut, raw, and unrefined CBD wax – an amazing product to say the least.

1. Delta 8 Capsules – 25mg

It really is indicative of 2021 that the number one product is a Delta 8 product. Especially early on in the year. Since then, many states have explicitly made Delta 8 illegal despite it being federally legal. That said, the Delta 8 capsules are a preferred way to ingest D8, especially these. They are made in a way that you will get most of the dose within a 45 minute period. They are discreet, vegan, and don’t contain sugar like gummies. Also, gummies tend to melt if you leave them somewhere hot. This product definitely deserves to be number one and is 100% certified by us 🙂

Looking back at this list, it gives a great summary of how 2021 went with trends in the industry. 19 states have made Delta 8 illegal, so we do not ship to those states unless things change. That said, we do conduct age verification upon checkout for both Delta 8 products and CBD vapes. This is for your and our protection – we all need to remain lawful.

2022 has great projections for the industry. There are many laws on the books that could free up the market, meaning more competition and products – a win for YOU the consumer.

We hope you enjoyed our list of the best CBD products of 2021. Thank you for making us one of the premiere CBD marketplaces on the internet. We could not have done it without you.

Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and Isolate CBD – What’s The Difference?

full spectrum cbd, broad spectrum cbd, cbd isolate

When it comes to the science of cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids, you can be sure that it is NOT a new science. Scientists, agriculturalists, horticulturalists, and just plain hobbyists have been studying, growing, and working with hemp/cannabis since the 1960s.

The understanding we have today of many of the plant’s cannabinoids, especially in the last few years, has been astronomical. A lot of it has to do with the advances in scientific instruments, sensors, and computing power. But the main driver of this knowledge is demand.

The US market for hemp-infused products continues to rise every year. Many Americans have already tried CBD and many are considering it in the future. Why? We are not allowed to make any claims, but research and anecdotal evidence point to a clear majority of positive experiences.

That said, since CBD and other hemp-derived cannabinoids are becoming increasingly popular, one of the most asked questions is, what is the difference between full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and isolate CBD?

Full Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD sounds exactly like what it means – it represents the entire hemp plant. Farm Bill compliant hemp is hemp that complies with the Farm Bill of 2018, meaning that only has .3% or less of (Delta 9) THC.

This applies to full-spectrum CBD extract. With full-spectrum, you are getting all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids, such as CBG and CBN, in addition to THC. There are many studies proving that when all the plant’s 113 cannabinoids work together, the effect is much more effective.

However, full-spectrum CBD is not for everyone. Most don’t want THC, despite the low percentage. It might be because of personal preference or they don’t want to risk failing a drug test. Whatever the reason, that’s why researchers created broad-spectrum CBD.

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad-spectrum CBD means that you can enjoy the benefits of all the cannabinoids working together, but just without THC. Even though CBD proponents favor full-spectrum over broad-spectrum, it is still an excellent alternative for those that choose not to ingest THC.

Just like full-spectrum, broad-spectrum CBD can be found in many different products, such as CBD oil tinctures, capsules, creams, and gummies. Broad-spectrum CBD is perfect for athletes, business professionals and anyone that’s worried about testing or, in general, having THC in their system.

That said, there is still no guarantee that some individuals won’t fail a drug test – there are always false positives. Here are some examples of broad spectrum CBD.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is a total pure extraction of CBD and nothing else. No other cannabinoids like CBG or CBN, but especially not THC. Why isolates? Isolates of any kind are used for super-focused applications. For example, if a substance is known to suppress or cause something, then at very high levels, it’s safe to say that isolate will be extremely effective.

One example of a CBD isolate is the FDA-approved Epodiolex. This approved drug has done wonders for seizures in children, but it is administrated at extremely high dosages. Nonetheless, it shows how focused isolates can be for a certain ailment.

In the hemp industry, CBD isolates can be found in creams, gummies, and other edibles – even smokeables.

CBD Online Store

The CBD Online Store has been around since 2018. We’ve been at the forefront of providing the best hemp-derived products from the best brands to our customers.

We’ve used hemp as paper throughout history and even as sails. It is just an overall miraculous plant that has an amazing potential to help our civilization.

The Best Disposable CBD Vape Pens

the best disposable cbd vape pens, disposable cbd vape pens, disposable cbd vape pen

By now, CBD, the non-intoxicating non-hallucinogenic cannabinoid has gone mainstream. Despite not having any guidance from government regulators, the hemp industry has done a good job in regulating itself. Sure, scams still abound, but if you want any longevity in this industry, you must build a transparent and reliable brand. That means adhering to high standards, such as sourcing hemp from one source, and testing every batch of extracted cannabinoids.

So, it’s not just about CBD anymore. Many companies are mixing in other cannabinoids, like CBG and CBN. Delta 8, or “weed light,” has also begun to rise in popularity. There is also a plethora of delivery methods, for example, tinctures, capsules, gummies, creams, smokes, buds, and vapes. From our data, vapes are the most popular delivery method for CBD and D8, most probably because they are potent and act quickly.

Let’s see the difference between non-disposable and disposable CBD vape pens.

Non-Disposable Vs. Disposable CBD Vape Pens

There are normal CBD cartridges, meaning that you have to have a compatible vape pen, like this one:

This particular vape pen, pre-heats the CBD and D8 vape cartridges to guarantee a good smooth hit. Since the CBD and D8 cartridges are in raw form, they tend to clog a little, so having the option to pre-heat is extremely helpful.

Check out our most popular CBD vape cartridge, the X2 here.

ECO Therapy CBD

You know you have an amazing product when you win the High Times Hemp Cup 2020 – Best CBD Vape Pen Award.

The Best Delta 8 Products

delta 8 thc, delta 8, best delta 8 thc products, best delta 8 products

The Delta 8 THC market is beginning to blow up, but it lends credit to the success of CBD and other cannabinoids.

When you free up a market — which is what the Farm Bill of 2018 did for the Hemp industry — you get an extreme amount of innovation and competition. In the end, the winner is definitely always the consumer, which is left with products that work very well at competitive prices.

The Hemp industry is no exception to this economic rule, producing health products using different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. For instance, there has been a plethora of companies and products utilizing the benefits of CBD and innovating different and creative ways of getting it into our bloodstream.

Most recently, the mixing of different cannabinoids, such as CBN and CBG, were used in conjunction with CBD to enhance different effects and moods.

Delta 8 THC

Delta 8 THC is a close cousin of the highly controversial Delta 9 THC. To be “Farm Bill Compliant,” your products must not contain more than .3% of Delta 9 THC. What’s the big deal about Delta-8?

It is 100% hemp-derived (meaning federally legal) while at the same time intoxicating. However, its effects are very different and distinct from Delta-9; some users reporting a more “clear-head,” “no paranoia,” and “no grogginess.”

Overall, Delta 8 THC is a good cannabinoid to help alter your mood, especially when combined with CBD and other ingredients.

Here are the best Delta 8 THC products in the CBD Online Store:

Delta 8 Capsules

When it comes to capsules, they are known to be on the low-end of bioavailability. But a company named CBD Is Better has changed all that. They manufacture these amazing AND vegan CBD capsules for all occasions. You can check them out here.

They applied this technology to infusing Delta-8, and many are happy that they did. These potent Delta 8 gelcaps have 25mg of D8 each.

Of course, lab-tested, verified, and vetted by us. These are high-quality Delta 8 capsules.

Delta 8 Tinctures

Tinctures are always a good way to get healthy ingredients into our bodies. For our case, CBD tinctures are a very popular way to mix CBD with other known beneficial ingredients, while also masking the taste of hemp. That said, adding natural terpenes to tinctures, really expands the taste pallet of the product. Check out these ones from CBD FTP here, and choose from over 10 terpene flavors.

Lucky for fans of Delta 8 THC, the technology has gotten a lot better in the ability to infuse cannabinoids. These particular Delta 8 tinctures are modestly priced and contain 1000MG of Delta-8.

The D8 market is beginning to explode, so we’ll see a lot more tinctures enter the market.

Delta 8 Gummies

“A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down” sings the ever so wise Mary Poppins. No wonder why gummies are so popular. They allow healthy ingredients enter our bodies but accompanied by a sweet chewy taste.

CBD gummies have done very well in the industry, especially zero THC gummies or combining CBD and CBG also do well.

But we have some really special Delta 8 gummies that are potent and contain ingredients to enhance their stated purpose.

Each gummie contains 25mg of 100% hemp-derived D8. All 3rd party lab tested, vetted and verified.

Delta 8 Buds

CBD buds have been a huge hit, with a fivefold growth prediction over the next few years.

CBD buds are certain strains of hemp flower that contain a high percentage of CBD.

With the rise in popularity of Delta 8 THC, cultivators are beginning to make strains that have a high percentage of D8. The market is currently (11/25/2020) in its infancy, but get ready to see many more strains come on to the market very soon.

These are 100% hemp flower, and 100% Farm Bill compliant.

Delta 8 Vapes

There is a lot of controversy over vaping, in general. However, they are still one of the best ways of getting substances, like CBD into your bloodstream. So, it’s only natural that we have Delta 8 vapes being released into the market.

These ones contain 1000MG of Delta 8 THC and are tested at 81.2% D8 potency.

The cartridges should fit any regular 510 thread battery. They are also compatible with these here.

We are not lawyers, so do not take this as legal advice. Always consult your lawyer about legality issues.

That said, the Farm Bill made the extraction of all cannabinoids from hemp federally legal. However, some states have explicitly banned D8, even if it is hemp-derived. We do not ship Delta 8 to those states.

Currently, as of the date of this writing (11/25/2020), the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah have made Delta-8 illegal.

Future of D8

The Delta 8 market is growing very quickly, and we at the CBD Online Store want to bring the best and most innovative products in the hemp industry to our customers. We are dedicated to finding the highest quality products from transparent and responsible brands.

The CBD Online Store is the largest and best online CBD Store. Buy CBD online with confidence from the best brands backed by 3rd party lab tests.

Different CBD Delivery Methods

cbd delivery methods, cbd delivery method, bioavailability, cbd bioavailability

Whether CBD can surely help with any disease is still up for debate, but that is not stopping its popularity. More recently, Martha Stewart launched her own CBD brand in partnership with Canopy Growth – one of the leading global cannabis companies.

And even though some might call this a crowded market, it is just getting started. The CBD market is projected to be worth $20 billion by 2025, so it is far from overcrowded. That said, there are countless methods and innovative ways to deliver CBD into our bodies. What are these CBD delivery methods? What makes them different?

CBD and Bioavailability

What is bioavailability and why is it important? According to Merriam-Webster,

the degree and rate at which a substance (such as a drug) is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of physiological activity

Or, in other words, the percentage of a dosage that your body absorbs. For example, if you take 30MG of CBD in a certain form, how much of it actually gets into your system. High bioavailability means that a high percentage of it enters your bloodstream, while low bioavailability means a low percentage of CBD enters your system.

Now that we know the difference of bioavailability, we can better differentiate between the different delivery methods.

CBD Drops (Tinctures)

By far, the most popular way to deliver CBD is through CBD drops. CBD brands also like tinctures because they can design products that target specific uses, such as sleeplessness, pain, and anxiety. This is accomplished by mixing in well-known natural elements with CBD and sometimes other cannabinoids.

CBD drops are considered medium bioavailability. Meaning about 20-30% of the dosage eventually gets into your system. It is recommended that drops are placed under the tongue for 60-120 seconds, and then swallowed. Use one to two droppers a day is recommended, but ultimately you understand your body the best.

Liposomal CBD | CBD Liposomes

CBD Liposomes are definitely a high-tech delivery method. Lipsomes are basically nano-sized fat cells, which the become infused nano-CBD particles. Why is this important? The liposomes protect the CBD from our harsh gastro-intestinal system. Therefore, nicely being deposited onto our cell walls to be absorbed.

Liposomes are considered high-bioavailability with 80% or more of the dosage will absorb into your bloodstream. It is no wonder why they are so popular. The above chewable CBD liposomes have 30MG per easily chewable tablet.

CBD Edibles | Gummies & Chocolates

We just learned how liposomes help CBD survive our gastrointestinal system. That is not the case with CBD edibles, well, most edibles. There also, may be technology in the future that can change this, but for now edibles are low bioavailability. For those customers, that don’t need a high dosage of CBD, edbles are very good alternative. Plus, the are easy and enjoyable to consume.

What is the bioavailability of CBD gummies and CBD chocolate? It depends, but it could be anywhere between 5-15%. CBD tea can also be considered edibles, but their effect is much better and could be a medium bioavailability delivery method.

CBD Capsules | Pills

Ah, yes. The age-old, “take a chill pill,” takes on a new meaning with CBD. CBD Capsules are popular because customers don’t have to taste anything. They also easily be included in a daily regimen of vitamins. However, talk to your doctor, as CBD can affect how some prescription drugs behave.

Manufacturers also like capsules and pills because, like tinctures, they can be designed for a specific purpose. There are many CBD pills, such as ones that target joint pain, blood sugar, and even sleeplessness. It’s important to note that capsules are low bioavailability since go through the gastrointestinal system. That said, they work very well for many individuals.

Smokeable CBD | Vapes, Buds and Smokes

Smoking is not for everyone, but it is one of the best ways to get any substance into your body. The lungs absorb the smoke and the substance goes straight into the bloodstream. This can be in the form of CBD vapes, CBD buds, or CBD cigarettes.

So, it goes without saying the smokeable CBD is high bioavailability.

CBD flower is very popular these days, with new and potent strains coming out all the time. CBD vapes are also a favorite because manufacturers can formulate cartridges that have up to 81% of CBD in some products. CBD cigarettes, on the other hand, are made from pure hemp, tobacco and nicotine-free, and an overall fun experience.

The Best CBD Liposomes

Before we get into the best CBD liposomes, let’s quickly speak about the current state of the industry.

The CBD industry is constantly growing and innovating. Just yesterday, a serious documentary about the science of CBD, CBD Nation, was released on iTunes – cementing the phenomenon more into the culture.

The sheer amount of companies, investments, and product development is very exciting. From fizzy beverages to chocolates, and even nasal sprays, there is nothing not being infused with CBD.

Sure, the reason is that CBD works for many people, but it is also because the federal government made hemp and all its derivates legal at the end of 2018. Legality, obviously, reduces risks, which attract investments.

Many say that we are still at the beginning stages of the industry and that the boom is yet to come. Other’s believe that a boom cannot happen until the FDA makes up their minds about CBD and finally release a regulatory framework. Whichever one it is, one thing is clear: people love it and so do entrepreneurs.

Liposomal CBD

Speaking of entrepreneurs and innovation, liposomal technology, even though it is high tech, has been around for a few years. Companies like Elixinol really pioneered the idea with their liposomal CBD oil. They also helped educate the public about the importance of liposomes and how they work.

In a nutshell, it’s difficult to get substances into our bodies efficiently. The term used to describe if a delivery method gets CBD into your system efficiently is called bioavailability. An example of a very high bioavailability delivery method is smoking or vaping. That’s because the lungs absorb the substance, which the immediately enters the bloodstream.

There is a varying degree of bioavailability in delivery methods, ones that are lowest are the ones that have to go into the gastrointestinal system, such as CBD edibles – except for liposomes.

Why you may ask? Liposomes are tiny fat cells that the CBD is injected in. These fat cells protect the CBD from the gastrointestinal system, then deliver them nicely into your soft tissue. Liposomal CBD is high bioavailability – meaning you are getting almost entirely the dose you digested.

CBD Lipsomes | Chewable Tablets

It’s not every day that a world’s first comes along. Enter Future Pharm, an innovative health and wellness company that invented the first liposomal CBD chewable tablet. These tablets are very impressive. Not only do they deliver, 30MG of CBD isolate (Zero THC), but with an average particle distribution of 165 nanometers, your body will get much of that dose.

Future Pharm also has a CBD liposomes tincture, which infuses Farm Bill compliant full-spectrum hemp-extract into nanotechnology liposomes. Again, for those that can’t and don’t want to inhale smoke or vapor, but still want to experience a high dosage, these CBD liposomes are definitely candidates to try.

The Best CBD/CBG Products

‘Aint it great?

Watching an industry start, evolve, innovate, and explode to the mainstream doesn’t happen very often. But when it happens, it changes society.

Cannabis used to have such a negative connotation in our culture. Of course, after decades of government propaganda, it’s no surprise; but the truth always comes out, despite the systemic war against it.

The cannabis plant is not all about THC – the hallucinogenic cannabinoid found in the plant. However, it was the curiosity of how THC works that made scientists stumble on the endocannabinoid system (ECS). You can find out more about that here.

Understanding the ECS allowed for the study of other cannabinoids, such as CBD, CBN, CBG, and many others. Each cannabinoid has its own strengths, benefits, and purposes for us humans to exploit and use to our benefit.

At the CBD Online Store, we are dedicated to providing the best innovation in CBD products, including combining other cannabinoids, such as CBG.

You can find out more about what CBG, also known as Cannabigerol here. But, let’s see the CBD/CBG products in the CBD Online Store.

Kurativ CBD/CBG Products

Kurativ CBD started with humble beginnings but has really taken the industry by storm. With a dedication to customer service and producing super high-quality products, they are now available in over 100 retail stores. Once we experienced their CBD/CBG products, we were hooked and had to introduce them to everyone.

Their CBD/CBD products are sourced from hemp farmers that they know and trust, and are formulated with the best ingredients. Have a look below:

As you can see, they have CBD/CBG tinctures, creams, and even gummies. Many come with zero THC or THC free versions. Why THC free? Read our article here.

Combining these powerful cannabinoids certainly enhances the products and are a must try.

Check them out below:

The Best Zero THC CBD Products

Zero THC? Aren’t all CBD products made with zero THC? Not really, but nearly.

After the passing of the Farm Bill of 2018, it legalized – at the federal level – the cultivation, production, of hemp and hemp-derived products. That included, of course, CBD. However, to be Farm Bill Compliant, the hemp had to have 0.3% of delta 9 THC or less.

Yes, that is a minuscule amount and will not get you high. But, the usual corporate and federal drug tests do not measure that. They just measure that you have THC in your system, and if detected, you’re on unemployment.

That is why the CBD industry began to design zero THC CBD products. That way everyone can experience the (alleged) healing effects of CBD without worrying about failing a drug test.

Here are the best zero THC products in the CBD Online Store:

Bloom Hemp | Zero THC CBD Products

Bloom Hemp is a special CBD company. Not only do they have their own hemp farms, but they control every step in the manufacturing process – including extraction and packaging.

It doesn’t get better than that. Also, the founders have been in the industry for a while and understand what it takes to stand out and impress the end-user. When you order from Bloom Hemp, you are getting a quality product that is cared for from seed to table.

These are their zero THC CBD products:

Kurativ CBD | Zero THC Products

Kurativ is a company that really stands out in the industry. Like many successful companies, they quickly innovate to create products that are unique and an improvement.

In their case, this improvement is mixing CBG (another cannabinoid with reported medical benefits) with CBD, to create a formula that is extremely powerful.

Add zero THC to the mix and you have a product that can be enjoyed by everyone. Here are some of those products:

Oliver’s Harvest | THC Free CBD Products

One company that focuses on zero THC CBD products is Oliver’s Harvest. They do, of course, have full-spectrum hemp-extracted CBD oil, but those are saved for products that would enhance the product’s purpose, such as drops and creams.

That said, Oliver’s Harvest is a company with 30 years of experience in healthcare and understand what and how CBD can be mixed with for specific purposes. You will notice that they have many CBD capsules designed for specific issues, and many are THC free.

Here are a few of those zero THC CBD products:

Zero THC CBD products are not for everyone. But if you are worried about having THC in your system for any reason, then these THC free products are for you.

For example, if you are in the military or are a federal employee, then you should definitely think about browsing these THC free CBD products here.

The Best CBD Vapes

What does it take to qualify to be part of the best CBD vapes list? Well, for one, the purity and potency of the ingredients. Second the quality of the cartridge. And third, the capability of the battery. Bring these aspects together, and you will have the best CBD vapes in the industry.

It really isn’t easy creating a quality product. The number one reason for this is profitability. Instead of innovating to solve a problem, most companies cut corners to get to profitability as quickly as possible. Quality products have innovation and research and development on their side, making them long term investments, i.e. people over profit.

One company that encapsulates this idea is CBD For The People (CBD FTP). A CBD company that stresses their message of “People over profit.” This can be seen in their superior CBD vape products that are way beyond any other on the market. Why? Their CBD vape cartridges are 100% pure, uncut, and chemical-free.

The CBD Vape That Started It All – the X1

You know you are on the right track when a product you produce just takes off and continues to rise. This is what happened with the X1 cartridge by CBD FTP.

At 30% CBD potency, the X1 formula is a great place to start. Choose from 500mg or 1000mg cartridges, or the brand new CBD vape pods. All will deliver the healing benefits of CBD quickly into your body without having to go through the gastrointestinal system. Browse the X1s here.

CBD Vapes Get a New Champion – X2

It wasn’t enough that the X1 had to break all records, so FTP designed the all-new X2, which had over double the punch of the X1, making it the “newly crowned” strongest full-spectrum organic CBD cartridge on the market.

At 65% CBD potency, you cannot go wrong with this type of performance, especially in times that you need it the most. The X2 is very popular and extremely sought after.

These special CBD vapes come in 500mg or 1000mg cartridges, including vape pods. Choose from a multitude of Terpenese, such as Grand Daddy Purple and OG Kush. These X2s are world-famous for a reason – find out for yourself here.

All Roads Lead Here – The XN

It’s amazing to witness the progression of innovation and technology. Popular products express this because they have the resources to re-invest into improvements, giving customers even more of what they want.

And that’s what the XN Hybrid CBD/CBN Vape Cartridges represents.

These are FTP’s flagship CBD vapes. With a whopping 81%+ CBD potency, nothing else comes near. Having this type of potency, of course, comes with its own set of problems. But, the R&D team figured it out, and we have an unmatched CBD cartridge.

These are very potent cartridges and definitely not for beginners. Browse them all here.

The XN cartridges will work with all FTP batteries, which you can find here.
