Nurse Nikki reviews and test three different Cannabidiol (CBD) products from CBDfx and CBD Therapeutics.
CBD products from companies like CBDfx and CBD therapeutics, represent an intriguing new business opportunity in an expanding legal market. More so, they may actually provide minimal side-effect relief in a natural way to patients in need.
Cannabidiol, unlike other other cannabinoids like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has no psychoactive effects. This is part of the reason why products containing CBD are less stigmatized.
With the talented Nurse Nikki by our side, we decided to test out three CBD products on the market today: the CBDFX strawberry vaporizer pen, the CBDfx hemp gummies, and the CBD therapeutics transdermal patch.
Let’s see what Nurse Nikki has to say about all these CBD goodies. But wait…

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol (CBD), is a compound found in cannabis that can have many medicinal benefits. It has no psychoactive effect and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.
The mere fact that cannabis rich in CBD is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains, makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions.
Now with a legal market moving into many places in the world, all kinds of products are springing up containing CBD.
What types of CBD products are available?
With the rise of modern-day extraction methods, cannabis is no longer restricted to the classic methods of consumption. More so, as the demand for CBD grows, an increasing amount of products are being released to allow cannabis consumers to choose their desired administration methods.
Companies like CBDfx and CBD Therapeutics have made an effort to move into this space, but here are some of the options available:
CBD isolates, or CBD crystals, is CBD in its purest form, generally around 98 to 99 percent potency.
CBD Topicals and Salves
Similar to cannabis concentrates containing THC, CBD extracts can also be made into a wax and dabbed.
CBD edibles, like the CBDfx products, come in the form of gummies, chocolates and baked goods and are a great way to administer CBD easily without the need for inhalation.
CBD Pills, Capsules and Tinctures
Pills, capsules, and tinctures are all discreet ways to administer CBD. Often touted as a “nutritional supplement,” they are considered a neuroprotectant and can have calming and anti-anxiety benefits.
CBD for Pets
Hemp-derived CBD for pets has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, anti-anxiety and anti-nausea qualities.
