A CBD pen is primarily for those that want to feel the effects of CBD all at once. If you want a “headrush” feeling where you feel relaxed, less anxious, and have less pain immediately, then a vape may be a good option for you. However, if you are looking for sustained benefits, then vaping is not the best way to go about it.
Many of the potential health benefits of CBD come from a long-lasting effect. For example, you won’t unlock all the neuroprotective benefits of CBD if you take a large dosage at once, and then it dissipates. You’re going to want that CBD to remain in your system at lower dosages to continuously provide benefits. In this respect, CBD is very similar to acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin). When doctors are prescribing this drug for heart health, they prescribe it in low dosages. When you have a headache, you want high dosages to feel relief as soon as possible. They also have different pharmacological properties at each dose.
A high dosage of Aspirin relieves pain (and does promote, to a degree, heart health), whereas a daily low-dose “thins” the blood, which leads to less clotting in the heart. Lasting benefits tend to come from products like oils and tinctures. Different, but still positive, immediate effects come from vaping. In general, though, people tend to find that tinctures provide a more satisfying, longer-lasting enjoyment than vaping. Plus, you may add tinctures to your favorite recipes to ensure you’re consuming CBD regularly. No matter how you choose to take CBD, the important thing is to try it out! Pick up some tinctures, an oil, and see how it might positively benefit your health and wellness today! CBD can be expensive to produce with plenty of added costs and there are multiple formulas available. Costs per milligram of CBD start around 5 cents and rarely exceeded 20 cents per milligram. Full-spectrum, or whole plant CBD, will contain trace amounts of THC and all compounds originally contained in the plant, such as terpenes. The price of CBD will probably come down, but not for a few years. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is one of the hottest wellness trends of 2019, with products popping up in nail salons, spas, big-box retailers, and health stores throughout the U.S. Though once illegal, the 2018 Farm Bill made industrial hemp,and thus hemp-derived CBD, legal to produce in all 50 states. And now CBD oil is popping up in such unlikely places as Bed, Bath, and Beyond. But for curious newcomers to CBD, the price might be raising some eyebrows. A 1 ounce, or 30 milliliter, bottle of CBD oil could cost anywhere from $30 to more than $200, leaving many wondering how something so small can cost so much and vary so widely. What accounts for the discrepancies and, perhaps most importantly, how much does CBD oil really cost? CBD can be expensive to produce with plenty of added costs and there are multiple formulas available. Plus, the potency of a bottle can greatly affect the price, even if it's the same size as a cheaper bottle with less CBD overall. Here's a primer to the different types of CBD and how much you should expect to spend. According to Katie Stem of Peak Extracts, a cannabis product manufacturer, CBD as a bulk commodity ranges from $3 to $15 per gram, or a fraction of a cent to 1.5 cents per milligram. This could mean that a 1,000-milligram bottle of CBD tincture could contain $3 to $25 worth of CBD, but that wouldn't account for production costs, materials, or labor. Some companies might do all the production work in-house, but many CBD companies turn to “white labeling,” which is when a larger manufacturer makes their products for them.
The CBD companies then must market and ship their products. Stem says this can cost around $25,000 to launch, plus a per-unit cost between $2.50 and $12.50. Full-spectrum, or whole plant CBD, will contain trace amounts of THC and all compounds originally contained in the plant, such as terpenes. “Long story short, the range is so broad, it's hard to make a general statement about what is a 'reasonable' price to pay for a CBD product,” Stem said. “That said, when examining a cost analysis from a production perspective, you look at labor, materials, packaging, labels, potency/purity testing, marketing, and shipping/distribution.
“In most other industries, the labor, materials, and profit are often divided into three equal portions. Given the exposure to this industry with regard to legal, regulatory, and testing standards, it stands to reason that the profit margin must be higher to accommodate potential risk.
