You may be hearing more about CBD and Hemp Oil these days, but what is it?
What does it do?
First and foremost, let’s separate CBD and Hemp Oil from everything else that we know about Marijuana. CBD does not contain THC (the main psychoactive ingredient of marijuana) and does not create a “high” like the feeling people get from THC-based products. CBD is THC-free (0.03% or less), so there is no “high” associated with its usage and contains no psychoactive ingredients. These CBD products can be sold legally in stores everywhere in the United States.
CBD is not the same as Marijuana, but they are indeed from the same family of plants.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol (can·na·bi·di·ol), and it is just one of over 113 cannabinoids found to be naturally occurring in hemp plants. It is important to understand that the human body also creates and uses cannabinoids in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) as part of our own way of maintaining balance in our system. Plainly stated, this is a direct connection from nature to the human body!
Now that we know what CBD is technically, you can begin to understand why it is a key ingredient in the ReThink line of natural remedy products.
How does CBD work? What does it do?
CBD directly interacts with our own body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and neurotransmitters, helping the body restore balance (homeostasis). Our bodies respond positively and many of the negative health issues we experience are resolved naturally.
By taking CBD as a part of our wellness and nutritional routine we can use a powerful natural remedy to address our health concerns. Rather than taking a prescription drug with side effects and unintended consequences, we can take CBD instead and treat the source of our problems.
It may be easier to think of it like this - CBD works to resolve problems internally, rather than treat health concerns from the outside. Pharmaceutical drugs treat symptoms; CBD treats the systems!
Think of CBD as a superfood - nutrient and including a dosage of CBD in the morning and night will contribute to your overall wellness.
What’s the best way to take CBD?
There are so many products coming to the market that contain CBD, but let’s talk about how to get this ingredient into your system.
The very best way to take CBD would be to use tincture / CBD Oil and use a dropper to put a few drops under your tongue, 2x per day.
There are gummies and other types of edibles, and there are creams for topical skin application that people use to address areas of pain they might have. You can take CBD GelCaps along with your other multi-vitamins in the morning! The overall point here is to assess how much you want to take (how many mg’s per day) and find the best delivery method that you are most comfortable with.
If you take a small collection of supplements with your morning coffee, that might be the best solution for you. Do what you think is easiest for you to add this to your own routine. The key here is consistency, which is an important factor in any program - to be effective it must be done regularly.
What can I use CBD for?
Some of the reasons people use CBD cover a broad spectrum of health issues that commonly include; Anxiety Reduction; Stress Reduction; Better Sleep; Promoting Cardiovascular Health; Nausea Relief; Pain Relief from Arthritis, Chronic Pain or Muscle Pain.
Some studies have shown that CBD may help in reducing inflammation and cell death due to its powerful antioxidant properties. "It clearly has some anti-inflammatory effects, but the exact mechanism is still not known," says Pal Pacher, a pharmacologist and cardiologist at the National Institutes of Health, who has conducted studies on CBD.
