As the cannabis industry evolves, so have the methods of applying marijuana and hemp extract.
In the CBD market particularly, the variety of products can appear quite daunting to a new customer. You’ve just about got your head around what cannabidiol is (CBD), now you’ve got to work out which product is right for you.
You have every right to be sceptical to begin with. Whilst the CBD space has been unregulated until now, many products have been mislabelled over the years. In fact in 2020, the FDA conducted a study where they found of the 102 products tested, 18 products had less than 80% of the amount of CBD indicated and 38 products contained more than 120% of CBD indicated. This isn’t helpful at all for the consumer who is trying to track their CBD dosage. This is why we always urge customers of new and old to get into the habit of reading the third party lab results. This will specify exactly what cannabinoids are in the product - (if the third party lab report isn’t available at hand, then the product very much likely contains little to no cannabinoids at all). Products that say ‘cannabis oil’ or ‘hemp oil’ or ‘hemp seed oil’ may be perceived to be CBD products but often do not contain CBD. Hemp seed oil has its own benefits in terms of fatty acids but that is a separate topic - we are here to explain cannabinoids and how they can improve your everyday wellbeing.
So… the Inhaler!
Our CBD Inhalers are provided to us by a good friend of ours, CBD Luxe. We believe in community over competition in this industry - after all, we are experiencing the benefits of a plant.
We absolutely support this product because it provides the same benefits that CBD vapes offer, but is a much healthier habit. The inhaler's cutting edge method uses micellised CBD which means it's ultramicroscopic. This allows the blood vessels in your lungs to absorb the CBD instantly so that you can feel the advantages of the cannabinoid right away - perfect for public speaking, before exercise, panic attacks, to relieve pain…the list goes on! Furthermore, the micellised method delivers precise dosing every time - 5.5mg of CBD in every pump.
If you are a regular CBD user who is already satisfied with CBD oil, then you may be thinking why should I consider an inhaler? Drops/oil are a great 'routine product'. By this we mean you should be taking them everyday and at similar times so that your body can adapt to a consistent dosage - this is the best way to acquire all the advantages on offer. (e.g. before bed, after breakfast etc). The inhalers are a more 'as and when product' and can be applied whenever you need the instant feeling of calm. Inhalers aren't at risk of spilling either and are lightweight so they are perfect for on the move.
They come in four varieties, and their names summarise their most suitable use. The BE Clear inhaler actually contains 20% more CBD than the others because it doesn’t offer any other plant extract than Green Tea (available in them all). The CBD content is fairly even across the other three inhalers (because you will never repeat the exact potency), but more so because they all boast unique formulas of other plant extracts!
Allow us to dissect each ingredient and its benefit.
A mono-unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid found in various animal and vegetable sources. A necessary chemical agent to allow the inhaler to operate.
An extract known to help reduce inflammation, boost metabolic rates - i.e fat burning, own anti-ageing properties and may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. It also contains the amino acid L-theanine that increases neurotransmitter activity, which without getting too deep into the specifics, promotes anti-anxiety effects, increases dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain. Green Tea increases the antioxidant potential of our blood which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. other studies pose that green tea can lose you pounds and add days to your life... There's valid reasons why green tea extract is in all of the inhalers!
