CBD oil beginner buyers guide

Buyers guide to cbd oil at

Many people are interested in trying CBD oil but don't know where to start.  This quick reference guide should help ease some of the confusion.  While we can not give medical advice and suggest a particular item for a particular illness we can point out what other people are purchasing and this can help others decide what might work best for them and their situation.

Lets start out by saying all of our products contain CBD/cannabidiol and most of them will give similar results so it matters less what type of item is purchased and more about how many mg's of CBD are ingested in a day. Generally the oils in the syringes will be the highest strength where as the vape or topical products will have much lower mg's.

Different forms of CBD oil products include:

Lets go through each one of these and elaborate a bit.

CBD oil

CBD oil is an oil extracted from the cannabis plant whether it be marijuana or hemp neither will contain 100% CBD and instead contain somewhere in the realm of 15%-75% CBD by volume.  This can come in a variety of forms that are explained HERE but the most popular oil is the gold oil by Active CBD oil. The rest of the oil is comprised of lipids (fats), terpenes, wax's, vitamins and other cannabinoids.  Most will use this at a rate of 1/10th of a gram a day to start with but many more serious issues will call for 4-10 times the recommended starting dose.  This is by far the most popular item on the website across the board as well sell 4x more of the Active CBD oil gold syringes then we do ANY other product on the site.  This is a great first choice and is the go to product for the majority of our customers.


  • Great easy to use product that is generally taken sublingually (under the tongue)
  • Fast absorption when taken sublingually
  • High CBD content with no additives, flavors, fillers or preservatives
  • Full cannabinoid profile (typically includes, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and more!)
  • Very concentrated so a little goes a long way


  • Tastes bad
  • Will not mix with water based liquids


CBD capsules

CBD capsules are a great and convenient way to take CBD oil orally on the go and are a great alternative to the oil in the syringes if your always on the go.  Generally CBD capsules will be slightly less effective per mg than the oil in the syringes because it has to go through your digestive tract.  The avaialblilty and absorptuion by your body can be improved by adding MCT oil to the mix like in the Active CBD oil capsules HERE.  These capsules are a great deal per mg of CBD purchased.


  • Convenient, easy to use, standardized dosages
  • Last up to 12 hours
  • Less conspicuous than a syringe with oil
  • Full cannabinoid profile (typically includes, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and more!)


  • Can take up to 1 hr to kick in
  • changes in dosage have to be in increments of 15mg

CBD tinctures

CBD tinctures are a great way to take CBD oil especially if you dont like the taste of the oil in the syringes.  CBD tinctures will generally have preservatives and flavoring added to a base which is typically vegetable glycerin and are great for people sensitive to taste or for those that can not take the oils or capsules for one reason or another.  The percentage of CBD oil in a tincture is conciderably less than the capsules or the syringes but you use considerably more product to make up for the lower percentage.


  • Easy to use and fast acting when taken sublingually (under the tongue)
  • Doesn't taste as bitter as the oil by itself so for many its easier to take
  • Full cannabinoid profile (typically includes, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and more!)


  • Generally lower mg than the capsules or syringes so you might have to take more
  • Includes ingredients other than just CBD oil

CBD vape

CBD E-liquid for vaping is becoming very popular and many new people to CBD oil choose to go this route.  Still not anywhere near as popular as the oil , capsules and tinctures its trending up these days due to the large variety of flavors and personalization possible with the vaporizer devices.  Most will choose to vape CBD as a means to "maintain" their levels of CBD throughout the day but generally this is not used as the main source of CBD.  This method is not recommended for people that are not familiar with vaping or inhaling smoke/vapors.


  • Super easy to use on the go
  • Great for maintaining CBD levels in your body throughout the day
  • Lots of different flavors and options in vaporizing devices


  • Generally low dose with the exception of Green Garden Gold and Cannatropix brand high potency E-liquids
  • Typically not a full cannabinoid profile and only contains CBD

CBD dabs

CBD dabs are a newer product that has just became available over the last 5 years or so but has become increasingly popular especially among users in their 20's in medical marijuana states.  This method of ingestion provides very high doses of CBD that is very fast acting but doesnt last very long.  Dabbing is a method of inhaling the vapors produced by very quickly super heating the oil/dabs until it vaporizes.  This requires not only the dabs which can be found HERE but it also requires a dab device which can be purchased HERE or off our site at places like that specialize in vape and dab devices.  We also sell full kits with the dabs and the devices for all types of budgets HEREThis method is not recommended for people that are not familiar with vaping or inhaling smoke/vapors.


  • Very high mg of CBD
  • Fast acting


  • Effects don't last as long as most other methods
  • Requires a special pipe is using an E-nail

CBD topicals

Increasingly popular is the topical line of CBD oil products.  These will include lotions creams, balms and salve.  We generally see people purchasing these products for their muscles and joints.  Be careful what you pick in this category as some products will contain mint or menthol and if used on sensitive areas they could cause some burning (in other words don't go putting it in your eyes or anything).


  • Most bottles will be easy to use and take with you
  • Great for the skin
  • Can really reach deep unlike many of the oils by themselves


  • Limited therapeutic use and will not help with many things people use CBD for
  • More expensive per mg of CBD than most other products


CBD edibles

CBD edibles will generally be used when someone either cant swallow a capsules and or they cant deal with the taste.  CBD edibles will generally contain the same oil as in many of the syringes however it will taste much better than the oil itself.  In fact all of our edible cbd treats are amazing tasting.


  • Great easy and convenient (even enjoyable!) way to use CBD oil
  • Most products will have a fat source that will help your body absorb the cbd oil more efficiently than just the oil by itself
  • Accepted by individuals who are picky eaters or prefer things that taste good


  • Generally more expensive per mg than most other CBD products
  • Many CBD edibles contain nuts or other allergens

While there is a large selection of products once broken down they are really pretty easy to understand.  If your still confused just remember that 60% of the people purchasing on our site are buying the Active CBD oil gold, its potent, easy to use, and does the job at a fair price.  Out of the remaining 40 percent half are buying the Active CBD oil capsules infused with MCT oil and most of the other are buying Tinctures. Generally people purchasing the vape, dabs, edibles and topicals are looking for a specific product they have already used and are satisfied with, these are generally NOT first time buyers looking for the benefits of CBD oil.
