A CBD Primer

Posted by Cloud99 NYC Staff on Mar 4th 2019

CBD (cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive component of the Hemp plant. It’s a beneficial supplement for people suffering from Anxiety and Insomnia. People also seek CBD for relaxation purposes, pain management, and sleep. Right now, CBD is in its prime. You can find products everywhere like CVS, Walgreens, vape shops, or at your local bodega. I cannot stress this enough, DO NOT buy CBD from bodegas! Always seek a trusted establishment to learn about your options and guide you through. Some of our popular products are MCT Oil by Hemplucid, USA Hemp cartridges, JUST CBD gummies/dried fruit, and our new pre-roll CBD joints by California Gold Co.

CBD has shown to be incredibly beneficial in the treatment and management of disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. It has shown to subdue tremors, minimize seizures and improve short-term cognition for people suffering from the taxing effects of their conditions. Many have seen even a drastic improvement in their day to day lives since including CBD in their diet.

One common form of CBD preparation is with a base of MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) Oil -- a colorless, odorless oil that contains high levels of Caproic acid, Caprylic acid and Capric acid. These acids are beneficial in treating different skin conditions, inflammation and digestive issues. They are known to have the advantage of being easily transported into the energy center of the cell. MCT oil is one of the fastest, cleanest sources for long lasting fuel that the body and brain can quickly absorb and use. This product is extracted using supercritical CO2 Technology, removing wax and other resins that could affect the body’s ability to absorb the product.

Ramona, one of my favorite customers, started using the MCT oil last year. She switches from vaping CBD to using the sublingual drops. She prefers to take them in the morning because it helps her stay focused during the day. But before she goes to bed, she likes to take a couple of puffs, helping her relax her mind and body.

James, another one of our customers, came to us about a year ago suffering from chronic pain due to a sports injury. He tried all types of pain management with little to no relief. We recommended the MCT oil to him, and within a few weeks of use, his pain was minimized to the point he no longer relied on prescription medications as much as before to get through his day.

If you are curious about CBD and don’t mind vaping, we have the Select CBD pen with different flavors and different effects. The Select CBD pen, a disposable device, has 239 mg of CBD in each pen providing around 150 puffs helping you relax, revive and focus. If you are a little more adventurous, I would recommend the new 250mg pre-roll CBD joints by California Gold Co.

USA Hemp CO. uses CBD grown in Oregon. It is an all-natural premium CO2 extracted CBD in a 500mg cartridge with the options of strawberry, blueberry, original and mint flavors for all tastes. If you do not have a battery with a 510-thread connection, we have a wide selection of other options to choose from.

If your preference is edibles, besides our gummies or honey, we now offer dried fruit with different concentrations of CBD. Papaya, pineapple, apple, mango and kiwi are some of the options you can find at our shop. These edibles are excellent for cramps, insomnia, and muscle pain.
