Unless you live under a rock, you are well aware of how prevalent CBD products have become in the health and wellness world. CBD is everywhere you look–at the salon, and your health food store, even available as a shot in your favorite latte. Like it or not, CBD isn’t just a fad anymore–we think it is here to stay.
Even so, CBD is pretty new on the market, and therefore, there isn’t a ton of research about how it works, why it works, or what the long term effects will be. But many aren’t dissuaded, and are now integrating CBD into every part of their lives. We weren’t kidding about the salon thing: you can get a CBD facial while you drink your CBD latte. Every. Part. Of. Your. Life.
How do I know if CBD will work for me?
The lack of research and newness of the product are making a few people skeptical, and rightly so. It is wise to be cautious about new products and to do your research before hopping on the latest fad or trend. While research is growing and developing every day about medical marijuana and the cannabis plant, so is the amount of anecdotal evidence out there. It seems like everyone and their mother these days has a story about how the effects CBD have changed their lives for the better. While personal stories aren’t nearly as solid as scientific research, it is hard to deny the sheer volume of personal testimonials regarding the benefits of using CBD. Plus, research is catching up! The FDA just announced the regulation of CBD as an effective treatment for pediatric epilepsy. Talk about a giant leap for mankind!
How does CBD Work?
In case you are in need of a refresher, CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is a chemical compound that is extracted from a plant in the cannabis family. When many strains of CBD are put together, that is called Full Spectrum CBD. In comparison, one specific strain of CBD isolated is known as CBD Isolate, or, Pure CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means you cannot get high from consuming CBD in any kind of product.
In comparison, most people are familiar with CBD in contrast with THC, which is short for tetrahyrocannabinol. THC is the psychoactive compound that can be extracted from cannabis — this is the strain that is in marijuana that people can get high taking. Some people opt to use hemp oil, which does include THC, so it can produce psychoactive effects. Although they are structured identically, CBD and THC impact the body in very different ways.
What are the Benefits of CBD?
The human body has endocannabinoid receptors that control a whole host of systems in the body. The endocannabinoid system, when acted upon by CBD, can regulate your mood, your memory, your nervous system, your anxiety, and so much more. It can act as an anti-inflammatory agent, reduce acne, help you sleep better, calm you down, sharpen you up, provide pain relief, nix nausea … you get it. There are tons of uses, and that’s just for everyday life. Right now, research is being done to help alleviate long-term effects and slow the progress of diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. It can even help to reduce effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, and aid with serious gastrointestinal issues like Crohn’s disease.
How do I take CBD?
There are a lot of ways to ingest cannabis products and integrate them into your daily routine. Perhaps the most novel way is to vape oil (CBD oil). For more traditional folks, taking a few drops of Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture from the dropper sublingually might be more comfortable, while others may pop a few CBD Gummies in with their daily routine.
