If you are thinking of trying cannabis products for the first time you may well find it quite daunting to try and work out which ones are the most suitable to start out with.

Everyone has to start somewhere and if you are a beginner, products such as CBD gummies can often be a great option to give you that first experience.

Here is a look at some of the main types of cannabis products suitable for beginners.

CBD oil

A good starting point would be to understand what CBD actually is so that you have a good appreciation of what it is you are taking when you try one of the various cannabis products.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that occurs naturally in the resinous flower of cannabis. CBD is different from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound that induces the so-called “high” that is often talked about.

CBD acts in a different way when interacting with different receptors in your brain and body. This means that you enjoy the therapeutic benefits associated with cannabis without the same intoxicating potency.

CBD oil is popular with medical patients as it can provide assistance in managing the symptoms of quite a wide range of diseases.


CBD can be consumed in a number of different ways and edibles such as CBD gummies are a discreet and easy way to enjoy the potential benefits.

It has to be said that gummies are extremely popular and would be a good product to try if you are new to CBD products as they are easy to take, affordable, and actually taste really good too.

Creams or lotions

If you are someone who is looking to find a suitable treatment for joint and muscle pain you might want to consider trying CBD-infused topicals in the form of a cream or lotion.

These products can be helpful in managing skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.


If you are interested in try cannabis-related products you can’t have failed to notice that vaping is an option that is widely available.

What you will be doing is inhaling vaporized CBD oil via e-cigs, for example. This allows the compounds to be inhaled and absorbed into your bloodstream once it passes through your lungs.

Oils and tinctures

There are a number of CBD products in liquid form that are infused with CBD oil. If you are someone who struggles with taking pills or capsules, this option should be easier. 

You simply place the product under your tongue using a dropper. As your oral mucosa contains loads of very small capillaries it becomes easy for the compounds to be absorbed quickly.

Other CBD products include capsules and pills, but it should be noted that you will have to wait for them to be properly ingested before you experience the benefits.

As you can see, there is a world of possibilities when it comes to CBD products and you should be able to find one that meets your needs and you are comfortable consuming in the most convenient way possible.
