Syrup, Hemp Syrup
CBD Syrup is a convenient and tasty way to consume CBD. The look and consistency are similar to cough syrup. Yet, the ingredients are much different. To make hemp syrup, companies start with the fundamental components — sugar and water. This forms the syrup’s base. The water is heated on the stove and the sugar gets added, similar to the way simple-syrup is made. Then, companies can add botanical herbs to increase the beneficial properties of the product. After the herbs steep, CBD oil or powder is added to create the final product.

CBD Syrup Effects
Many people experience positive changes in their health when taking CBD. This occurs because of the interaction CBD has with the body. More specifically, cannabidiol (CBD) activates our endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system, like all the body’s systems (i.e. cardiovascular, skeletal, endocrine, etc.) are extremely important to our overall well-being. The specific job of the ECS is to promote internal balance. The scientific term for this is homeostasis. Within the ECS is a collection of enzymes, endocannabinoids, and receptors. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2 and are primarily located in our immune system and central nervous system. CBD indirectly interacts with these two receptors. In turn, the ECS becomes activated and is able to operate and function better. So, when we supplement with CBD syrup, the CBD molecule finds the CB1 and CB2 receptors and stimulates them. In short, this is why our body can feel the positive effects of CBD syrup and other CBD-based products.
What to Look For in a Product
Buying CBD syrup for the first time can be a little intimidating. The question of “where do I start?” inevitably comes up. There are a few key things to look for in a CBD syrup product. First, find out if the hemp extract is full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or a CBD isolate. A full-spectrum hemp extract includes all the phytonutrients in the plant such as CBD, a handful of other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and more. Whereas, CBD isolate only contains CBD. And broad-spectrum falls in between. It has nearly all the phytonutrients in the hemp plant, except for THC. After deciding on your hemp extract type, read over the list of ingredients. If the product has herbs in the formula, find out what the effects of those herbs are. Then you can decide whether it's a good match for your needs. Lastly, look at the potency. This number will be shown in milligrams on the product label. For example, let’s say a 2 oz. (60ml) bottle of CBD syrup contains 60mg of CBD. There are four servings, so each serving will contain 15mg of CBD. This is a low to medium potency depending on the user. But, you’ll find products with different potency ranges. Once you decide on your potency preference, you’re ready to go shopping.
