What Is CBD?

Even though CBD has skyrocketed in popularity since the passing of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (commonly known as The Farm Bill), you may not have heard of this beautiful plant-based substance. It is also possible that you may have heard of it but aren’t quite sure what it is. If this is the case, we hope to provide you with the CBD education you are seeking.

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis variety of plants like marijuana and hemp. Cannabinoids interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system to produce several beneficial effects. Many looking to improve their overall health with a holistic, plant-based solution have been turning to the many wellness benefits found in cannabinoids like CBD. And because of The Farm Bill we mentioned above, these CBD products are entirely federally legal across the United States as long as they are hemp-based and do not contain more than .3% THC by weight.

Ways to Use CBD

Now that you know what CBD is, you may be surprised to learn the number of forms in which it’s available. Because consumers have been clearing out CBD retailer shelves for years now, this phenomenal demand has encouraged CBD suppliers to create a wide variety of CBD products to satisfy any taste and lifestyle. Here are a few of the types of products you will find being offered by premium CBD retailers like Farm to Health organics.


Tinctures like our popular 1500 mg Organic CBD Oil are a common way to take CBD for those looking for immediate relief and long-term effects. The tincture oil is placed under the tongue and held there for one to two minutes. This method allows the CBD to be absorbed by the capillaries under the tongue within the carrier oil. Those capillaries then carry the CBD directly into the bloodstream to provide immediate results. From there, the remaining CBD oil is swallowed and enters the body through the digestive tract. This secondary absorption method is slower, but it provides additional benefits that last much longer.

Tinctures commonly come in different strengths so that you can determine the intensity of the effect you desire. Once you choose the strength that’s right for you, the convenient dropper that caps the bottle allows you to adjust the amount of CBD oil you dispense under your tongue until you reach your ideal dosage. It is suggested that you start with a smaller dosage if you are beginning to use CBD, then increase your dosage until the desired effects are reached.

CBD Softgels

Softgels are a great way to get all of the benefits of CBD in a convenient form. Unlike tinctures, softgels are pre-measured, so you can be assured you are getting a consistent dose every time. Softgels are a valuable option for people on-the-go. And because they are swallowed with your favorite beverage, they are absorbed into your bloodstream through your digestive tract. This method means they may take a little longer to take effect compared to tinctures, but the benefits will last significantly longer.

An additional benefit of softgels is that many contain a combined formula with other helpful ingredients like our Premium Nano CBD Softgels with Melatonin. By combining our CBD softgels with the benefits of melatonin, you will find that they are quite useful in allowing you to relax at the end of a busy day so that you can get a great night’s sleep. We also take an added step in processing our softgels as we incorporate nanoemulsion technology to produce a final water-soluble product. This form means that more of the CBD in the softgel is absorbed into the body than with other softgel products that do not use this technology.

CBD Edibles

Edibles are a fun way to get your daily dose of CBD in a tasty, convenient package. Adorable gummies like our Premium CBD Gummies come in an assortment of flavors like strawberry lemonade and green apple. Each gummy will provide a specific dose of CBD in a chewable form. Because of their tasty flavors and fun-to-eat forms, CBD edibles will put a smile on your face while the goodness of CBD works its magic on your body.

CBD Salves

Salves that contain CBD provide an alternative to oral CBD products. The CBD salve is applied directly to the skin in the area that needs help. This form allows you to experience relief to a specific area of your body instead of the overall benefits found with oral medications. Products like our CBD Salve with Lavender and Eucalyptus provide quick comfort to aching muscles and joints.  Furthermore, the additional ingredients of lavender and eucalyptus support skin health while their aroma calms the senses.

CBD Oil For Pets

That’s right! Your pets can experience the excellent benefits of CBD as well. Because your dog or cat is a mammal, they have the same endocannabinoid system as you do. This is why we offer our Organic CBD Oil For Pets, which is crafted specifically for your furry best friend. Users have found CBD oil for pets has a calming effect during high-stress situations like thunderstorms and offering physical support for aching joints and muscles.

Why You Should Choose Farm to Health Organics

We know you have several options when it comes to CBD retailers. However, your health is too important to trust the many cheap imitators on the market that promise a lot but deliver very little. You want a premium retailer like Farm to Health Organics because you can trust our brand. Here’s how you know when you shop with us, you are receiving only the best.

First, we only use hemp grown in the United States, while many of our competitors use imported hemp from other countries like China. Hemp grown in the United States has to meet strict farming guidelines set by the US Department of Agriculture. The importance of this cannot be overstated, as hemp is known to absorb chemicals and other toxins from the ground it is grown in. Without the regulations we find in the United States, imported hemp may carry pesticides, heavy metals, and molds that eventually make their way into the final CBD product.

Second, we use scientifically-advanced techniques to extract and produce our final product. State-of-the-art processes like Supercritical CO2 extraction are expensive but have a higher quality hemp oil than cheaper extraction methods. These less expensive extraction methods use chemicals and hazardous materials that may end up in the final product – something that doesn’t happen with CO2 extraction.

Third, all of our products are tested by a third-party laboratory, and the results are available right on our website. Many people are shocked to learn that the Food and Drug Administration does not regulate the CBD industry. This lack of oversight allows disreputable companies to label their CBD products falsely. At best, you cannot be sure that what is claimed on the label is actually in the bottle. At worst, the products may contain harmful chemicals that may negatively affect your health. Our company uses third-party laboratories to test every batch we produce. Then, we make those results available to our loyal customers so you can be confident that the label on our product is accurate. These reports verify that the products you purchase from Farm to Health Organics contain the advertised amount of CBD and that the product contains no harmful ingredients.

Don’t settle for less! Trust Farm to Health Organics for all of your CBD needs. You can shop online with us twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  You can also use our convenient online contact form to get in touch.

We look forward to serving your CBD needs soon!
