CBD FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS
WHAT IS CBD ANYWAY?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a critical phytocannabinoid found in hemp and known for supporting the body and mind in many ways.
Not to be confused with oil from hemp seeds (which doesn’t contain cannabinoids), CBD comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant.
Why does CBD work? The human body has a vast network of receptors, the endocannabinoid system, that helps us maintain overall wellness and helps support many of our body’s physical processes. CBD and cannabinoids fit into these receptors, helping the body in its efforts to help maintain good health.* Learn more about the endocannabinoid system.
WHAT CBD PRODUCT IS BEST FOR ME?
There are various ways in which your body can process and absorb CBD, and it all comes down to your personal preference. The CBD industry is currently booming, and the market is flooded with many different products to choose from. Oils, topicals, edibles, capsules/softgels, smokeables, etc...
Starting small and experimenting with different types of product as well as potency is the key. It’s important to find a product that has the right level of CBD for your own body, which can take some trial and error. Each person reacts differently to Cannabidiol and there isn’t a perfect formula to determine what will work best for you.
It is advisable to start with less potent products, or smaller amounts, until you understand how it affects your body.
