What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD products contain a full range cannabis compounds known as terpenes, flavonoids and phytocannabinoids along with CBD. This creates a more effective product as opposed to Isolate CBD products.
Sativa or Indica?
The two major types of cannabis plants are Sativa and Indica, which can then be crossbred to create a Hybrid plant. Each strain can create a range of effects on the body and mind. Sativa strains are said to be more energising, while Indica strains can provide a sense of deep body relaxation.

Our Expert Opinion
All of The Original Alternative products are all made exceptionally well, so it really is just a matter of preference as to what type of product you should take. Many people prefer capsules because they dislike the strong plant taste of CBD Oils, while others prefer oils because they work faster.
CBD Oil and Capsules are both convenient in their own way, but capsules win for being ultra-convenient. There is no worry of your oil spilling or leaking, they are discreet and you can accurately measure the dosage by each capsule.
CBD Oil has a higher bioavailability (this is how CBD is absorbed into the body) when it is taken sublingually because capsules first have to bypass the digestive system before taking effect. However, many people claim that CBD taken orally and is digested lasts longer than if it is absorbed sublingually (held under the tongue).
This is why we say it really is just a matter of preference as to what type of product you should try. If convenience and discreetness are concerns of yours, then perhaps capsules are a better option for you.
Recommended usage: As everyone reacts differently, it is best to start with a lower dose (50mg) and work your way up.
Storage advice: Store in a cool dry place out of direct light as to preserve quality.
