Everything About Cannabidiol Crystals: Effects, Dosage, and How to Use Them Correctly.
You’ve heard about CBD crystals and you’d like to know more? Cannabidiol crystals are obtained from Cannabis Sativa buds with a prevalence of CBD (cannabidiol). CBD is a component of Cannabis with soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-convulsant effects. Furthermore, unlike the more famous THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it does not have psychotropic effects. For this reason, CBD crystals can be purchased without a doctor’s prescription.
The crystals are obtained by “supercritical CO2 extraction,” without using toxic solvents or high temperatures. Thus we obtain pure CBD crystals which are perfectly legal as they contain no THC.
How to Use
Cannabidiol crystals may be taken in different ways. You can put them under your tongue, smoke them, vape them, or use them in cooking, for example adding them to your batter. Here is everything you need to know to use them properly.
CBD Crystals Under Your Tongue.
Letting the cannabidiol crystals melt under your tongue is one of the simplest ways to take them. In this case, we advise you begin with small 3 mg doses up to 3 or 4 times a day. You should be able to appreciate the soothing, relaxing effects after a few hours, if not, you can gradually increase the dosage, which should also vary depending on how pure the crystals are and on each user’s weight and metabolism. This is a practical way to take CBD and is particularly recommended for personal use, as it doesn’t require special preparation.
How to Smoke
If you prefer to smoke CBD crystals, you can use a small pipe or a bong. All you have to do is put the crystals – in the indicated amount – directly in the pipe or combine them with other smokables. It is a simple method, and the effect is immediate, but of course it isn’t very healthy for your lungs.
How to Vape CBD Crystals.
CBD crystals can also be vaporized, or vaped, using a vaporizer or an e-cigarette. In the first case, you will need a temperature-controlled vaporizer. Once you have inserted the crystals, even in very small amounts, all you have to do is vaporize them at 150-160 °C (300 – 320 °F), like you would do with CBD oil. If the temperature is too high, you risk burning the crystals with a consequent cancerogenic effect. In this manner, instead, the CBD will release all its beneficial effects and the vapour can be inhaled without incurring side-effects. For those of you who prefer to use an e-cigarette, you will have to dilute the crystals in vegetable glycerine and put the compound in an e-liquid cartridge.
Cooking With Cannabidiol.
CBD crystals can be added to any recipe, from cookies to quiches. We recommend you first combine the crystals with some butter, or with coconut or olive oil and melt them in a double boiler. Combined with food, you will feel the effect of the CBD after one or two hours.
