What is CBD Oil?
CBD – Cannabidiol is a compound found in the Cannabis Plant, along with 113 other active cannabinoids. CBD has been used for medicinal and natural remedy purposes for centuries. This is because of how the plant interacts with the endocannabinoid system—a modulatory system that balances the body during stress.
When most people think of Cannabis, they think of either Hemp or Marijuana. Both plants contain CBD and THC (and 100+ other helpful cannabinoids), but Hemp has higher levels of CBD and lower levels of THC; where as Marijuana has higher levels of THC and lower levels of THC; thus creating little to no impairment.
Is all CBD Oil the same?
No. It is very important to ask about the origin and purity of the CBD oil.
Cannabis / Hemp is essentially a weed and will suck everything out of the soil. Certain foreign regions are known for questionable agricultural practices or heavy metals and toxins in the soil, so it is impairitive you purchase CBD products made in the USA.
BUY FULL SPECTRUM
We always recommend using the “full plant” as mother nature has grown it.
CBD Isolate – contains nothing more than pure, isolated CBD. In other words, there are no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids.
CBD Full Spectrum – contains a full range of cannabinoids. When the cannabinoids are extracted from hemp, the entire extract is made into a consumable product, meaning that you are getting a healthy dose of all the cannabinoids that were in the plant.
How to Use CBD
CBD is extracted in oil or powder form and then added to lotions, capsules, gummies, sprays, foods, and even bath bombs. You can add it to your coffee or morning smoothies.
The natural oil can be applied topically or ingested. It can also be inhaled by way of vaping or taken sublingually (placed under the tongue). There are numerous products and brands to choose from on the market as CBD continues to gain popularity as a natural remedy.
Trying it is simple, straightforward, and accessible in many different forms.
