If textbooks defined an American city’s greatness by what originated within its borders, then it’d be hard to top Baltimore. I mean can you get more American than the Star-Spangled Banner, Babe Ruth, and post offices?
Today, Baltimore, or Bawlmer to those in the 410 area code, has enthusiastically taken up Cannabidiol, or CBD.
Next to your favorite fish shop or pharmacy, you can find products that advertise improved wellness and symptom relief. But what is CBD? And is all CBD the same?
CBD is one of the over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike cannabis’s other well known and federally illegal cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD will not alter your normal state of consciousness.
And while there’s still plenty of scientific research needed to know the full benefits of CBD, routine users have reported that it helps them relax, sleep, and enjoy life.
But companies that make products which include CBD, like oils, vapes, and edibles, aren’t all the same. Just as with other consumer health products, a little research can save you a lot of time and money.
With Balance CBD consumables, you’re guaranteed a product that contains only choice CBD isolate. That way, you don’t have to worry about trace amounts of THC throwing off a drug test. Plus, our line of products taste great and are enjoyed by hundreds of satisfied customers.
Below, we’ll go over where to buy CBD in Baltimore, and things to look out for on your hunt across Charm City.
Shop CBD Oils in Baltimore
CBD oils are the most easy-to-use method of consuming CBD. If you haven’t tried CBD before, then oil tinctures would be a perfect way to start.
They’re like the Natty Boh of CBD products: You haven’t tried Baltimore beer unless you’ve had a Natty Boh, and you haven’t really tried CBD until you try an oil.
Most of the advertising you’ll see posted in shop windows are for CBD oils. You can use them in multiple ways, but the easiest and most effective is by placing some under your tongue for about 90 seconds.
In the industry, we call this sublingual dosing. Capillaries in your salivary gland soak up the CBD metabolites and send them through your body via your bloodstream. Dosing this way is quick, too; you’ll feel the effects within minutes. We stock CBD oils in a variety of flavors, such as Mint Mohito and Wildberry.
And since you’re knocking must-dos off your list, you really should visit Edgar Allan Poe’s grave. It sounds morbid, I know, but the famous poet lived and breathed Baltimore. His grave in west Baltimore is something of a rite of passage.
Shop CBD Vape Pods and Cartridges in Baltimore
Anyone who’s spent a fortnight in Baltimore knows that the language, while rooted in the common tongue of American English, pops with East Coast idiosyncrasies. You want fish cakes? Then call them coddies. Visiting the seaside? Then you’re going down the ocean.
And if you want to swap your cigarette for a vape, then you should consider swapping your nicotine for CBD. That’s because CBD is non-addictive, and many of our customers have claimed that it’s helped them cut the bad habit out of their lives entirely.
But there are other reasons to choose one of our CBD vapes. While it may not be the most inconspicuous method, it remains the fastest—you’ll feel a dose of CBD vape in less than one minute.
Vaping is like snacking on a cloud, and Balance CBD stocks an array of tasty clouds, like Sunset Sherbet. Plus, there are multiple CBD vape methods to dabble in. If you’re new to the product, a disposable pen is the lowest-priced entry point.
Shop CBD Edibles in Baltimore
If you’ve never had Baltimore blue crab then you’ve never really been to Baltimore.
Sure, you’ve traipsed along the boardwalk and listened to the lapping of the Patapsco River under the docks. And, sports fan or not, you’ve seen the O’s play at Camden Yards. But the irresistible essence of Baltimore resides in its blue crab.
Baked, broiled, or steamed—doesn’t matter. These delicious crustaceans have a long history in Maryland, and Baltimore in particular. They’ve cooked them since the 1600s, and many of the old recipes, including Old Bay seasoning, haven’t changed for generations.
And while our CBD edible recipes aren’t as historic as Old Bay, the key ingredient, CBD, is as old as cannabis. And cannabis is really old. Some historians believe humans have cultivated hemp for some 17,000 years.
Balance CBD gummies come in many dulcet flavors, like Organic Granny Smith Green Apple. We think the best reason to try CBD edibles is that the main effect will last you at least three hours, maybe more. That’s double the uptime of any other form of CBD consumable!
Check Out Balance CBD in Baltimore
Baltimore’s nickname, Charm City, arose from the experiences of outsiders spending time with the city and its people. Sure, there are bigger cities in the US… ones where it hardly rains, never snows, and no one will ever call you “hon”.
But what’s so bad about rain? Without snow, you could never taste a Baltimore snowball. And you can sum up a Baltimorean’s feelings on “hon” with another word: Honfest.
This is a great city rich in surprises and inventiveness that spring from its citizens. Life in Baltimore defines the East Coast. Your time here will depend not on how much you can see but how much you can chill out.
That’s where we come in; Balance CBD can help you relax, unwind, and get on Baltimore’s level. Check out our stock of oils, vapes, and edibles today.
