CBD works through multiple paths, it slows and blocks pain, it reduces anxiety, and it reduces inflammation. The time it takes to work depends on how it is taken or applied, how much is taken, and on each individuals receptivity for CBD. Alterna’s Xtreme products are produced with the highest quality THC free CBD designed to quickly deliver relief, for most within a matter of minutes.
The creams will absorb in a few minutes and it will not leave any sticky residue. It is formulated like any high-end cosmetic. The ingestibles, the tinctures and gummies will be absorbed over time and similar to sugars, will be absorbs in a few minutes. Only about 6-10% of CBD is absorbed unless it is a water-soluble form which is immediately absorbed. However, to make CBD water-soluble the other ingredients needed to make it soluble limits it to only about 10% of the CBD, so net-net 10 mg CBD and 10 MG water-soluble CBD deliver the same amount of CBD to the bloodstream.
Alterna’s products have a very slight, clean scent depending on the product. The cream has a slight cosmetic scent, the freeze has a slight menthol scent, the tinctures have a very slight plant scent and gummies are scent-free.
