Can you determine what the best CBD product is for you? I have said it before and I will say it again, “There is no single product that works for all people.” That is impossible whether you are talking about over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, or any kind of supplement including CBD. Each manufacturer formulates its hemp-derived CBD differently. Some process plants by heating and some process using an ethanol wash while other companies infuse a carrier oil. With isolate, broad-spectrum, and full spectrum options as well as the many different terpenes — what you buy is unique to that brand.
So how does one decide on the best CBD product for them? First, look at the reviews for each company and see how they create their products. Then, you need to read the ingredients to be certain that there are no fillers, additives, unneeded chemicals, etc. We want you to put healthy products into your body because CBD works on your Endocannabinoid System to create balance. There is no need for ingredients that do not serve your body well.
Next, one needs to decide which delivery system is best for you: liquid, capsule, gummy, or topical. Some people have no interest in gummies or have difficulty taking pills. It is very important to choose products that you are comfortable with and that you will consistently take daily. There is no point in purchasing a product that you do not really like. It is a waste of money and will not do you any good sitting unopened or unused on your counter.
Your health is priority number one and working with individuals and stores that offer you a wide variety of high-quality CBD products is imperative. We all want products that make a positive impact on our health but deciding what is the best CBD product for you, is difficult. If you try something for a few weeks and do not notice any positive benefits then you may want to try something different. Sometimes the potency is too low or you are not taking the product often enough. Sometimes you simply have not taken the product long enough. All of these are possibilities. However, starting with an excellent product or two makes all the difference in the world. Check out our website and see a wonderful array of impactful CBD products to meet everyone’s needs.
While there may be more acceptance of CBD than there was a few years ago — many people are still quite wary of trying a CBD product. We want to help you feel comfortable and confident about CBD and to do that we would like to dispel a few of the myths surrounding this amazing supplement.
Myth #1: The CBD industry is a bit sketchy. There may be some growers, manufacturers, and labs that are not as experienced or competent as they should be. However, the majority of CBD companies work very hard to carry high-quality, organically grown hemp and process it without the use of chemicals or harmful additives. The 2018 Farm Bill that authorized hemp/CBD to be legally sold all across the country had some very specific requirements for everyone in the industry and as time goes on, industry standards have risen and competent labs are working to certify that each product is exactly what it purports to be.
Myth #2: CBD is addictive and can get you high. Totally false. The hemp plant, with less than .3% Delta 9 THC cannot get you buzzed in any way. There are no psychotropic effects linked to CBD. Unlike nicotine, opioids, and alcohol — there is nothing addictive about CBD. Yes, you will feel the positive results and need to use it daily as you would any other supplement or medication. But, no, you will not crave the CBD nor does it stimulate the addiction center in your brain.
Myth #3: There’s not a lot of research about CBD. Every major research university, pharmaceutical manufacturer, and medical institution is studying the properties and impact of CBD. From Harvard to the World Health Organization. Why? Because the hemp plant is filled with a wide array of cannabinoids, terpenes (aromatic, essential oils of the plant) chlorophyll, phytonutrients, and more. New studies are coming out every month that are attempting to determine all the healing properties of this plant and the ways in which different cannabinoids and terpenes can positively change conditions like anxiety, insomnia, depression, PTSD, seizures, etc.
Myth #4: The FDA doesn’t regulate CBD. Through the aforementioned Farm Bill, the FDA has set the standard for all hemp to be inspected and certified as having less than .3% Delta 9 THC. It is an important distinction because with legalized cannabis in some states, but not all, everyone wants to be compliant with this mandate. The FDA has also approved the first CBD medication, Epidiolex, which helps reduce seizures. They also monitor CBD products to make sure companies are not making false medical claims. When the Farm Bill expires in 2022, it is likely that the U.S. Congress will institute even more rules with the assistance of the FDA so that it is regulated just like all other nutritional supplements.
Big things are happening in the world of CBD. We will see more evidence-based studies to bolster the many anecdotal stories and more people will find themselves purchasing CBD to help them with any number of health challenges. Remember that CBD has a very high safety profile and does not have significant adverse side effects. It is an excellent, foundational supplement that will help you find the healthy balance that you need.
When you think about taking any kind of nutritional supplement, you generally have your morning and your evening pills. With CBD, you are feeding your Endocannabinoid System (ECS), and it may need to be fed throughout the day.
It is so great that CBD comes in so many different forms. You may start your day with CBD tea or coffee to give you a little lift without the negative side effects of caffeine. Then as you move forward, you may want to take a nano-spray or a mint that will work quickly and help you stay calm and focused. As the day goes on, you may find yourself starting to feel stressed so you consider another mint, a gummy, or your vape.
As the evening progresses, it is time to help your body wind down and get ready for bed. Now you have that wonderful CBD tincture that will ease you into a quieter state of mind and allow you to get the deep sleep you need. All of these products are helping to tone up your ECS and get your body & mind in balance. No other supplement works in this foundational and healing manner.
CBD products come in so many varieties that every person can find a delivery system (or two) that they like and products that taste the way they want them to taste. The world of CBD is open to everyone because of the high safety profile of ingesting hemp. It is comforting to be able to take a supplement that will support you without causing you negative side effects or psychotropic effects that you don’t want.
Take CBD daily to boost that ECS and to keep yourself on an even keel. It’s a great day when you feel at peace, out of pain, and well-rested.
CBD can be an essential part of keeping you healthy. How? CBD feeds your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to get your body into homeostasis also known as balance. If you have anxiety, insomnia, stress, pain, or any kind of inflammation then CBD will help support your ECS.
Your ECS is the key to your best health and a strong immune system. Getting those CB1 & CB2 receptors fired up and making your own endogenous cannabinoids is the name of the game. You do this by supplementing with CBD liquids, gelcaps, edibles, and more. For example, if you have a cough and tightness in your chest — a CBD topical may help loosen things up. Or, if everything is red and inflamed then CBD or CBG will work to give you the relief you need. Or, if you’re struggling to get a good night’s rest because you feel so unwell, then maybe a CBN product will be the answer.
Of course, there are other supplements that are known to be immune boosting, such as: Vitamin D, Vitamin C, probiotics, mushroom formulas, oil of oregano and so many more. Here’s an opportunity to add CBD to whatever regimen you currently follow and get that systemic inflammation down, reduce your anxiety, lessen your pain, and feel stronger and ready to fight whatever germs come your way.
The hemp plant is amazing. With 113 different cannabinoids and over 200 terpenes (the essential, aromatic oils of the plant) the possibilities for helping support your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) are endless. Each cannabinoid, whether it be CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG, THCA, etc., stimulates your ECS receptors to make more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. Say that three times fast!
Your endogenous cannabinoids have different names than the cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The work they do in your body is profound as they modulate other systems such as your neurological, digestive and endocrine. By taking CBD supplements, you stimulate receptors throughout your brain and body and increase endogenous cannabinoid production. This is key to toning and supporting the ECS.
If CBD hasn’t been working for you then it may be for any of the following reasons: 1)You may not have purchased a high-quality brand with Certificates of Analysis (COA) that show you exactly what you are buying matches what it says on the bottle; 2) You are not taking a high enough potency thus, you are not getting the results you want; 3) You must be consistent in taking your CBD daily just like you would take any other supplement; and, 4) Allowing enough time for your ECS to get “on-line” and function as well as it should is essential as there are no quick fixes.
Depending on your health situation and the length of time you have been struggling may mean that it will take more time for CBD and your ECS to help get your body in balance. CBD works on your body in foundational ways to reduce systemic inflammation and so much more. Feeling good is worth the time, money and commitment because it frees you up to enjoy the rest of your life. Hooray for Hemp!
The first question I ask all of my customers is, “Have you tried CBD?” When they tell me they have tried it and it really isn’t working for them — then I know it is probably for one of the following reasons.
- Poor quality product. If what you buy is not from a reputable company then the label and the lab analysis may not match and that means you may be getting very little CBD. If you are purchasing CBD at a local gas station or salon then you are unlikely to be getting good quality products and you are setting yourself up for a lot of frustration.
- Dosing issues. You are not taking a high enough dose. If, for example, the CBD tincture says 500 mg on the front and you are taking half a dropper daily, then you are only getting 8 mg (that is not a high dose). You may need the full dropper or two droppers which will raise the total number of milligrams to 32. It takes a bit of flexibility to find what dose works for you since no two people are exactly alike.
- Intermittent Use. You are only taking the CBD product periodically. For your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to be well-supported and to get those CB1 & CB2 receptors fired up, then you need to be consistent and take the CBD daily. Just like any other supplement or medication you take. Regular use increases the efficacy of the product and then you are getting the outcomes you want.
- Time. Maybe you got the results you sought within a week or two. But, for many, it may take a few months of changing the number of milligrams per day, changing to another high-quality brand, changing the delivery system (e.g. from a capsule to a liquid) or simply giving your body the time to boost your ECS and reduce systemic inflammation which underlies so many health concerns. Many people walk into a CBD store frustrated with all the medications and therapies they have already tried. If you have experienced a health issue for many years then it behooves you to give CBD at least a few months or more to get you to a place of good health.
Of course, talking to someone with knowledge of the ECS, explaining Certificates of Analysis (COA’s) and discussing how each product works in your body is the key to success. CBD is an amazing supplement that works for so many people. How great would it be if you were one of them?
Bet you can look at the image above and relate to it. Do you have chronic pain or maybe you injured yourself recently? Whether it is your neck, back, head, foot, shoulder or elbow is not the issue. The issue is that you have inflammation in your body that underlies your physical pain.
CBD is a powerful supplement that works on reducing systemic inflammation. It operates in your body by stimulating the receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to make more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. And, that means your body is working to tamp down the inflammation by feeding your ECS. Daily use of a CBD supplement — whether it be a liquid or a gelcap — can make the world of difference with the level of pain your experiencing. Plus, using a topical to reach those targeted hotspots will assist in getting you relief even sooner.
Why walk around not feeling your best? Being kind to your body is one of the best parts of taking a supplement like CBD. It is non-addictive, non-steroidal, has no psychotropic effects and works on your body in foundational ways to support your ECS not just to quash symptoms. If you want to set up a time to chat with me about your situation then head to our website and schedule a phone consultation. It’s so easy and might be your best call of the week!
Excited about the CBD hype, yet you can’t seem to find the right CBD that works for you?
Searching for the right CBD product that helps your Endocannibinoid System (ECS) function at its best can take some time. Don’t give up too soon. When taking CBD, our target is to support your ECS and not just quash symptoms. Supplementing with CBD strengthens that receptor system so that you can lead a healthier and happier life. Research scientists have claimed that our ECS, is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in maintaining and establishing human health (Strause, 2017). Didn’t know you had an ECS? You are not alone! We have only known about our ECS in the last 25 years. However, since there has been a rise in research in both CBD and THC and how it affects the body, they have identified an extraordinary multiplex network of cannabinoid receptors (CBr) expressed in cells of both the central and peripheral nervous system. In addition, animals have one too. Pretty cool right? Nevertheless, our top priority is to bolster our ECS and get our bodies back in balance.
There are many forms to take CBD; tinctures, oils, gel caps, edibles, water, vapes, etc. Everyone is different so it may take some time to play around to see what works best for you.
