Different Types of CBD Products: All the Info You Need to Know
Table of Contents
Over the past few years, more CBD products have become available, and we’re here to teach you about the different types! We’re diving into everything from topicals to edibles to help you decide which one you want to buy. Here is all the information you need to know about some of the most popular types of CBD products:
One of the most popular methods to administer CBD is through a tincture. A tincture is an oil-carried form of CBD. Tinctures are produced by steeping cannabis flowers or isolates in a high-proof grain alcohol, then applying to low heat. The result of this is a potent liquid that allows you to experience the effects of CBD without smoking or another form of combustion. Tinctures are concentrated and designed to be taken in small doses, which is why most come with a built-in dropper. This allows you to take carefully measured quantities. Tinctures are typically administered by placing it underneath the tongue. However, it can easily be added to foods like soups and pasta, and drinks like coffee and tea. We have a CBD isolate tincture that is strawberry flavored! There’s a flavorful strawberry taste in every drop so that you’ll look forward to taking your daily dose of CBD.
For those who want a different way to take CBD, you’ll love edibles. CBD edibles are made by adding an extract or isolate into a food product. Our CBD gummies are one of our best-selling products! One reason people love edibles is because it’s an easy way to take CBD and masks the taste. At Hometown Hero, we offer a variety of CBD gummy flavors, from watermelon to blueberry. If you don’t want the gummies, we also have CBD Flu Tea. It’s a mixture of CBD hemp flower, chamomile, lemon zest, lavender, and elderberry.
CBD concentrates are high potency extracts of the hemp plant and contain a high level of cannabidiol. The concentrates typically contain CBD-isolate extracts, but broad and full spectrum hemp concentrates are common as well. You can mix the concentrate in with your normal CBD flower. If you’re interested in using CBD concentrates, you should try our CBD Lemon Crumble! It’s made with CBD Isolate and has been infused with an additional lemon-flavored terpenes to create an amazing flavor.
CBD topicals are creams, lotions and salves that are infused with CBD and can be applied directly to the skin. The CBD topicals penetrate the skin without entering the bloodstream. At Hometown Hero, we offer CBD lotion and CBD salve. Not only do these products allow you to apply the CBD right to your skin, but they also hydrate and moisturize. Our CBD lotion absorbs quickly into your skin and has a cooling sensation for instant soothing! Its peppermint, rosemary and lavender aroma will leave you feeling great. Our Full Spectrum CBD Salve is perfect for applications you need to stick around a little longer. This topical product contains raw hemp oil, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and other quality ingredients that will hydrate your skin. All you have to do is gently rub it into your skin!
CBD flower refers to the flower on the female hemp plant. The CBD flowers contain a number of terpenes and cannabinoids that typically aren’t found in CBD tincture. They have a greater variety of hemp compounds that result in longer-lasting effects. We have a great selection of CBD flowers and buds available, including one of our best-sellers: Hawaiian Haze. Hawaiian Haze is a strain of premium CBD Flower that was hand-picked because of its tropical flavor and scent, rich green colors and low THC/high CBD content. You can view all of our CBD flower products here.

Another route you can go with consuming CBD is by using CBD oral spray. Most brands will have the spray come in a bottle with an applicator. Similar to tinctures, you can dispense the liquid directly under your tongue. But if you don’t feel like having direct contact with it, you can also spritz some on your food or drinks.
Although CBD spray is praised for its easy use and versatility, most companies don’t produce this line of products. This doesn’t mean it is impossible to buy, but you likely won’t find it at your local hemp shop. However, since hemp is federally legal, you can easily find a selection of sprays online with different flavors and brands to choose from.
Vaping is hands-down one of the quickest, most delicious methods to consume hemp. There are two different tools you can use to vape CBD. You can either purchase a CBD disposable or a CBD cartridge. Both will offer you a convent and discreet experience, but the main difference comes down to your preference.
Disposable vape pens are ideal for those who don’t want to spend the time to charge a battery. Instead, cartridges are pre-filled pens that contain vape juice and are pre-charged. From the moment you open the packaging, you can instantly enjoy CBD without having to worry about a single thing. Once the chamber is empty, simply toss it in the trash and purchase a new one.
CBD cartridges come with a tank full of CBD, along with a mouthpiece at the top. To use this, you need to have a battery, specifically a 510 threaded pen. After the pen is fully charged up, simply screw in the cart and vape away.
These products are relatively popular, so you shouldn’t have an issue finding them. Common places that carry them would be at your local hemp shop, gas station, or online.
CBD capsules have similarities between tinctures but come in either soft gel capsules or hard-shelled capsules. This consumption method is intended to be taken like you would any pill. While many prefer soft gel capsules for a smooth swallow, both tablets will offer you the same effects. If you enjoy edibles but don’t want all the calories and sugar that come with them, this would be the perfect alternative.
Full Spectrum vs. Broad Spectrum
As you can tell, there is a variety of CBD products to choose from, with each offering you something that the other doesn’t. But how do you determine the right extract for you?
Before purchasing a CBD product, you should know the primary differences between broad spectrum CBD and full spectrum CBD. To start, broad spectrum CBD features a variety of naturally-derived cannabinoids, except THC.
Full spectrum is almost identical to broad spectrum, but in this mixture, it can have up to 0.3% of hemp-derived Delta-9 on a dry weight basis. This extract contains the full range of hemp’s cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils that have been known to encourage the entourage effect. Now, what’s the entourage effect?
The entourage effect is a phenomenon when a combination of cannabinoids come together to synergistically provide a fuller experience. This can also occur with broad spectrum, but it may not be as noticeable as full spectrum CBD.
If the entourage effect has piqued your interest, our line of Select Spectrum may be exactly what you’re looking for. While Select Spectrum isn’t considered a CBD product, it does contain a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. For example, in each Select Spectrum gummy, 10 mg of CBD, 10 mg of hemp-derived Delta-9, and other cannabinoids balance out to create the entourage effect.
