CBD is an ingredient you must have seen advertised somewhere in recent years. It's now a hyped-up key player across the health, wellness, fitness, and beauty industries! And you deserve to know just why CBD belongs in your bathroom cabinet or kitchen cupboard. Because CBD is here to stay, whether you use it to relieve pain, calm your anxiety, or soothe your skin.
What is CBD?
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a cannabinoid oil extracted from the leaves and buds of the cannabis plant. The oil is used to treat all kinds of things, from anxiety to eczema to chronic pain. And it does not cause a high. There are no mind-altering side effects! Just an abundance of health benefits.
How does CBD work?
Time to get your lab coat on! Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system that produces cannabinoids of its own. When we use CBD, our system recognizes it and knows how to utilize it throughout our bodies. CBD molecules are small enough to sink into our skin and reach our hypodermis (bottom layer of skin). There, the molecules interact with receptors which then work to regulate functions like sleep, pain, inflammation, or immune-system responses.
The benefits of CBD
As a pain reliever
CBD is excellent for easing chronic pain and tension. Many people use it to treat pain caused by conditions and illnesses like arthritis, MS, cancer, IBS, or fibromyalgia. People will also use CBD for muscle soreness post-workout. The best way to use CBD for pain relief is through massaging a balm into the areas you feel pain.
My CBD balm is a bestseller for people who want to ease chronic pain or muscle soreness. I use high-quality ingredients handcrafted in small batches to ensure integrity. My balm uses TCH-Free CBD, and you have a choice of three concentrations. Check it out here!
As a beauty product
CBD is excellent for calming chronic skin conditions like eczema. It will also help to create balance for oily, congested skin. This is because CBD is ‘sebostatic’ and will regulate sebum production. Too much sebum is a major cause of blemishes, blackheads, and acne.
As a calming supplement
CBD can be taken orally to help with anxiety, insomnia, stress, or similar conditions. CBD binds to the receptors that play a role in regulating our moods and stress levels. In this way CBD can really help you feel more zen.
Will CBD cause a high?
THC is the cannabis compound that causes a high. CBD is a different compound and does not cause a high.
How do you use CBD effectively?
The form of CBD you use depends on what you want to treat. If you want to relieve pain, use CBD as a topical balm. If you want to relieve stress or anxiety, take CBD orally.
Can you use CBD every day?
CBD is safe to use every day, but you should always check the instructions of the product you use.
Here's what you should know
If you’re going to delve into the world of CBD and see what it can do for you, always use products that are free from THC, from reputable suppliers. And check your labels or product descriptions! They should always show the amount of CBD within.
