CBD is the new popular word in many wellness circles. From internet forums and the fitness industry to celebrities and athletes, everyone is convinced that this all-natural oil is the key to better health. And now it's time for you to try it too.


What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive extract from the cannabis plant, one of more than 100 natural ingredients filtered to remove 100% of its THC content. This cannabinoid reacts with our body's endocannabinoid system, providing users benefits without the unwanted "high"

The endocannabinoid system is found in our bodies, helping to regulate a wide range of cognitive and physiological processes. Although these processes are highly complex, scientists have proven that they include mood, appetite, sleep and pain - essentially keeping our bodies balanced and functioning normally.

The endocannabinoid system is a network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. Phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant), such as CBD and TNS, also attach naturally to these cells and have various effects. Some studies have shown that CBD protects nerves from damage and is potent anti-inflammatory. Studies suggest that it can be used to treat several other conditions such as anxiety and prolonged pain.1


Which CBD product is right for me?

So, you know you want to take CBD, but you just don't know-how. Although many products are on the market, it can be challenging to choose the right one. Let us tell you about the different ways of introducing CBD into your everyday life, whether you are dealing with a long-standing health problem or want to see the benefits first hand.


The easy way to take CDB

The most common way to take CBD is oral. Taking it in capsule form is a great place to start. It is easy to manage the dosage, and you are also likely to be used to taking tablets or capsules, so it seems completely familiar. Dosage is significant when it comes to using CBD, and this option offers an accurate way to keep track of how much you take each day. Because everyone has different needs and responds differently to the strength of CBD, it's essential to start with a small dose and gradually increase it - this is easy to do with capsules. But remember, it can take 45 minutes for your body to absorb CBD fully, so never take more than the recommended dose. Overall, if you are new to taking CBD, you should try the capsules first.

Are you familiar with CBD? Or do you need a more potent dose than the capsules? It's an excellent time to switch to CBD oil, called a tincture. To do this, put a few drops under your tongue and hold for about a minute. This is a quick and effective way to get CBD into your bloodstream, as well as a more economical solution for daily use. It is vital to watch your intake. It is easy to take more (and we mean a lot more!) than you need with a pipette dispenser (which the oils usually come with). CBD oils come in different strengths, so choose wisely, depending on the amount of CBD you need - it usually depends on the reason for taking it. For example, the amount of CBD you need for a restful sleep is much less than pain relief. That's why it's always advisable to start with a small dose and then bring it up to a level that suits your needs. Take your time, and you will notice when you have reached this optimum level.


Start with CDB balms

Oils and capsules provide a systemic effect of CBD. This means that once ingested, they affect the whole body. For treating anxiety, restlessness and other general problems, this is ideal. However, when it comes to pain, you need to focus on the issue - whether it's a sore joint or muscle pain - and with topical remedies, you can localize the effects of CBD to the point that you need it most. But what are topical treatments? If you haven't guessed already, these CDB balms are applied directly to the skin and are usually available in different scents and strengths for all kinds of applications. 


Designed to suit your diet

What if you want to add CBD to your diet? Well, smoking blends are an excellent (and usually tasty) way to introduce your body to CBD. And yes, we know you take them internally too, but when something comes in the form of a snack and can satisfy your cravings for sweets, it deserves its shout-out.

It has probably been soaked in CBD, if you can name the treat. Chocolate, biscuits and cakes are some of your favorite snacks that can satisfy cravings and give you a boost of CBD. However, if you're trying to achieve a specific dose of CBD product, be sure to check the nutritional information on these sweet treats. Many of them will not achieve the required level because they have only a tiny fraction added to them (in most cases). So when it comes to CBD Snacks with a potent dose of CBD, chewing gummies are the clear winner here. Capsules come in various strengths and delicious flavors.


The choice is yourself

So whether it's capsules, oils, topicals or supplements, you'll find the type of CBD that suits your needs and lifestyle. However, make sure it is only from a certified supplier, whichever product you choose. This is the safest and most effective way to use CBD, ensuring that you get all the benefits you are looking for. So do your research and buy the product from a brand that can offer third-party testing and quality, all-natural ingredients.
