CBD is becoming one of the most popular and natural ways to help with many common health issues, including pain, anxiety, stress and sleep disorders.
The medicinal hemp plant is legal in the UK and the compound within it is known as cannabidiol or otherwise known on the health market as CBD.
CBD can be consumed in many different ways from a drop of oil under the tongue to tinctures, teas and capsules.
Sometimes the earthy taste of CBD isn't ideal for sensitive taste buds, some prefer to not taste the CBD at all.
Lucky, here at Inspired Life CBD, we have heeded customer feedback and here's a list of all of the fun ways to ingest CBD.
CBD edibles bring a fun and exciting way to ingest this healing medicine and there are many delicious treats to choose from, including yummy chocolates, chewy gummies, soothing honey sticks, lip-smacking chewing gum, relaxing tea or scrumptious cookies and cakes.
Sweet tooth or not, most people like a chocolate treat every once in a while. CBD Chocolate makes a divine dessert alternative after a meal or while on the go.
Not only does it satisfy sweet cravings but it also provides incredible health benefits.
CBD chocolate is a great option for first-timers because it doesn’t carry an association of something more conventionally medicinal, like a capsule, making it less like a 'chore' and more like a tasty treat part of every day life.
There are many different types of CBD chocolate, each product varying in CBD strength.
Choose from products that range from milk chocolate, hemp based chocolate, and right through to a CBD vegan dark chocolate bar.
No matter which chocolate you try, cravings and self care will be satisfied.

CBD gummies are good for those who don’t quite enjoy the taste of hemp. The fun flavours of the gummies makes them easier on the palette than something like the potent oil, for example.
The CBD gummies come in different strengths and ingesting CBD this way is convenient for those who want more control over their dose.

Honey is said to have many health benefits including being rich in antioxidants, improving cholesterol levels, lower triglycerides and is said to be a healthier alternative to sugar.
A CBD organic honey stickis a double booster for health as it gives benefits of CBD and honey all at once.

Gum is a great discrete way to ingest the goodness of CBD no matter where you are.
A CBD tea is a perfect option for those who like to relax with a hot beverage. The CBD herbal teas also contain other medicinal herbs and fruits such as turmeric and ginger, green tea or Elberyberry, Hibiscus and Rosehip.
The CBD teas that are available with UK-wide delivery provide the relaxing, calming effects of CBD plus the benefits of the herb of choice.
Turmeric and ginger is a perfect anti-inflammatory whereas something like Lavender or Chamomile will offer extra calming properties to the mind, body and soul.
Cookies and Cakes
If you’re feeling peckish and have a taste for baked sweet treats, we'd suggest going for a CBD cookie or cake.
These mouth watering treats can be the perfect partner to a CBD tea.
Hemp cookies and cakesare a must to have stocked in your kitchen cupboard so they are at hand for pain relief or to help ease anxiety.
Oils, Tinctures, Sprays and Pastes
Most CBD oils, tinctures and pastes are consumed orally and each format of potent hemp compound has a different flavour.
CBD oil and hemp usually has a nutty taste and our CBD tinctures come in different flavours such as mint, chocolate or vanilla. This is to allow the CBD compound to pass into the bloodstream without the potent kick.
Consuming CBD in oil, spray or paste form is a fast and convenient way for the body to absorb the nutrients. It's also the strongest way to ingest and is most ideal for pain and anxiety management.
The main difference between CBD oil and a CBD tincture is that the oil is usually made as an oil carrier/base and the tincture has an alcohol base.
CBD hemp oil provides all the benefits of the plant without the psychoactive effects. Hemp is a cousin of the marijuana plant and is often mistaken for it. The difference between CBD oil and cannabis is the content of the psychoactive compound, THC.
Our CBD oils contain minute traces of THC and are completely legal in the UK.
Tinctures usually contain a lower potency of CBD so would be a good option for first-timers.
Vape pens have become more popular over recent years and vape cartridges are available in a variety of flavours.
CBD E-liquidsare infused with CBD rather than nicotine which is the basis of tobacco smoking.
CBD Vape kits and all refillable liquids can be purchased at Inspired Life CBD.

CBD Vape Pens and Vape Kitsare also available to purchase online or in store at the heart of Manchester City Centre.
Taking a CBD capsule each morning is a convenient way to introduce CBD into your life as it’s just like taking a mutli-vitamin or a dietary supplement.
Our CBD capsules come in different strengths of CBD and different sized bottles.
You may opt for the capsule because it’s more convenient, quick, easy and discrete and the have no taste at all.
Better still, all of our capsules use vegetable based enclosures and are all listed as vegan.
