To say that the hemp plant is amazing would be an understatement. The many cannabinoids that are in the hemp plant, as well as the terpenes, have such great healing properties. Most importantly, the safety profile of hemp CBD/THC supplements is excellent. You cannot overdose on CBD. It is non-addictive, works on systemic inflammation, and may calm both your body and mind. So what’s Delta 8 and how does that fit in?
Delta 8 vs. Delta 9
Most people are familiar with Delta-9 THC because it has strong psychotropic effects and that is why when hemp was legalized nationally — the Delta 9 was limited to less than .3% of the total ingredients in any CBD tincture, edible, beverage, capsule, or topical. Delta 8 is not as powerful as Delta 9 but it has the ability to give you a lovely feeling of happiness, lightness, and stimulates those CB1 and CB2 receptors to fire up and make more of your own cannabinoids. That’s what it’s all about, too. Stimulating your Endocannabinoid System to get you in balance.
Delta 8 Benefits
Some people like to start their day with just enough Delta 8 so that they breeze through any stressful situations. Many people use it as a sleep aid to get that really deep, restorative sleep that they need. You can find this amazing cannabinoid in tinctures, vape cartridges, and gummies. Just a little bit can go a really long way.
More cannabis, as well as hemp consumers, are discovering the subtle, yet substantial differences between Delta 9 and Delta 8. Learn more in this article from Discover Magazine.
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.
We Are Not Doctors. However, we can offer you a lot of information about the many benefits that our customers have found by taking CBD. Whether it is a tincture, gelcap, edible or topical — CBD is working on your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to fire up that receptor system and help get your body in balance.
What is balance? On one level, it is homeostasis. On another level, it may be how you handle daily stress. Or, it may be less anxiety, less depression, less inflammation, less pain, and better sleep. Each person is different and how they supplement with CBD may not match what works for you. Some people can take CBD at night and it will work on their ECS for a 24-hour period. Some people need to supplement both at night and during the day.
There are no exact protocols with CBD. You are doing your own adjusting and readjusting to find the best product, the right potency, correct dose for you ,and the time it takes for your CBD supplements to get you to your best health.
CBD has endless possibilities in being able to help a wide variety of body, mind and spirit concerns. We love talking to our customers to help them get exactly what they need. Happy customers make our hearts sing.
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!
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.
