First, let’s talk about the products that Ceres offers
Ceres Gardens offers a variety of wellness products. The most popular items sold at Cinder would be their tinctures and lotions. Ceres has a patented method to emulsify cannabinoids into nano-sized particles, thus speeding up the process of bioavailability to be three times faster than conventional methods. Nano-sized cannabinoid particles rapidly transport cannabinoids into the bloodstream in just 10 minutes. The tinctures are a CO2 extracted distillate that comes in sizing options of 100mg, 250mg, and 1,000mg. It is made with a blend of a coconut and avocado oil base as well as other wellness ingredients such as kava kava or chamomile, depending on the tincture.
My favorite tincture is the Relief Super CBD Tincture (250mg) which sells at Cinder for $35. The relief tincture also comes in a less concentrated version (100mg) for $18.
I like this tincture because it is formulated with kava kava and willow bark, both of which are noted to have soothing and relaxing qualities. It is also enriched with caryophyllene, linalool, myrcene, and humulene which continues to amplify those effects. To serve yourself, you will need to fill the provided pipette with as much product as one squeeze will give you. Release the liquid under your tongue and hold it there while you count to 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, then you can swallow. Each pipette will give you 12.5mg of CBD. Taking this tincture does not alleviate me of my pain and I can’t promise you that it will do so for you either. Instead, the Super CBD Relief leaves me feeling light and floaty which makes my days easier to get through.
Ceres Gardens offers topicals like lotions, balms, roll-ons, and gels. Topicals are popular because their effects can be felt quickly and the user can apply it directly to where they are wanting to feel its effects. The topicals are created with a blend of CO2 extracted cannabis oil, a moisturizing base, and beneficial essential oils.
My favorite Ceres topicals would be the Dragon Balm Roll-On ($25) and the Body Bliss gel ($27). The Dragon Balm roll-on has a moisturizing base of cocoa butter for smooth and easy application. My favorite thing about the roll-on is that it is infused with menthol crystals so the effects are similar to that of an icy-hot patch or the Cooling Stick by Wildflower. The Body Bliss is a formula based on natural plant aloe that moisturizes skin while it quickly absorbs into affected areas of the body. Unlike other gels that are water, or petroleum-based, or other synthetic cosmetic gels, natural plant aloe is the fastest and safest absorption method for deep tissue.
THC capsules by Ceres come in 100mg packages (10mg per serving) and they are coconut and avocado oil based. Ceres also offers CBD or THC/CBD blend capsules that will be 200mg, 250mg, 330mg or 1,000mg. The capsules are formulated with essential oils and beneficial ingredients such as white willow bark, turmeric, horse chestnut, and primrose. Due to these complex blends, a customer has many options to choose from that will exactly meet their needs.
Bath salts are created with CO2 extracted THC or CBD oils. Topicals are a good recommendation for after a bath because the skin is soft and more easily absorbable. I suggest soaking in the Relax bath salt after a long day or a hard workout to help yourself wind down and calm your nerves.
What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp oil?
CBD oil and hemp oil comes from different parts of the marijuana plant as well as different types of a marijuana plant. The biggest difference between the two is that CBD oil comes from an actual cannabis plant with some THC content. Hemp oil comes from cold-pressed hemp seeds so they will have absolutely no cannabinoids like THC or CBD. Ingesting a product that contains hemp oil will not have any psychoactive effects but something that is CBD oil might. CBD tinctures with THC are very popular as they are soothing and relaxing but also slightly mind altering.
