CBD oil is, without question, the current superstar of the natural health and wellness industry. The benefits of CBD, as a natural treatment aid for multiple conditions, are extensive and perhaps unprecedented. The scientific studies, research and anecdotal evidence continue to confirm the efficacy of this natural compound. So, when it comes to deciding if CBD is right for you, what are the basic things you need to know?
1. What Is CBD and How Does It Work?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one, of over 113, cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa plants, hemp and cannabis (marijuana). CBD and THC are the two most abundant, active and therefore primary cannabinoids. CBD is non-psychoactive, unlike THC, which is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid. CBD, therefore, is a non-toxic, non-psychoactive compound found in both cannabis, and in greater abundance, in hemp.
CBD, when ingested or used topically, interacts with receptors on the cells of the Endocannabinoid System, (ECS) in the human and mammalian body. It has been discovered that the human body has a vast system throughout the brain, organs, tissues and immune system, of receptor cells. CBD interacts with these receptors in a way that provides the many benefits across many areas of human health and healing.
2. What Are The Main Benefits Of CBD?
CBD oil has been shown to provide relief from the following conditions:
*Pain and Chronic Pain Relief
*Skin Disorders and Anti-Aging Skincare
*Maintenance of Homeostasis (balance) as an Anti-inflammatory
These represent the most abundantly researched conditions, however, there is an increasing body of evidence for additional benefits of CBD.
3. How Can CBD Benefit The Skin?
CBD topical products and skincare are having a tremendous impact on the beauty, cosmetic and skincare industries. CBD topical products offer a natural alternative to traditional chemically based skincare and cosmetic products. CBD skincare products provide natural, nutritional and healing properties to the skin. CBD has been shown to provide relief and healing to skin disorders and conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, cancer treatment and radiation side effects, acne, rashes and more.
In addition, CBD creams and salves provide local pain management relief. A protocol of taking CBD oil tinctures orally and using a topical cream provides a natural alternative to often-dangerous chemical treatments. Because CBD is non-toxic, it can be used safely, throughout the day and night.
4. CBD as a Supplement
CBD oil can be used on a daily basis as a supplement to provide the following:
*After Workout relief
* Sleep Aid
* General Homeostasis of Mind And Body
These are only a few of the benefits of using CBD as a daily supplement. All of the benefits that CBD delivers to various disorders and conditions can possibly be prevented by supplementation.
5. How Do You Dose CBD?
Probably the most asked question by people starting to take CBD is, “How much should I take?” That is actually a very open question. First of all it depends on your own body and condition. If you are starting by taking CBD oil tincture, (which is recommended for newbies); start slow, with a few drops under your tongue. See how you feel, if you are treating a condition, and then you can increase it if necessary.
Also, be aware of the amount of CBD milligrams in the tincture, a high milligram per volume requires less dosage. The good news is, CBD is non-toxic, so you don’t need to be concerned with overdose; however, when it comes to effectiveness with CBD, less is more.
