What is CBD? (Cannabidiol)
CBD is the shortened version of cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a compound found in hemp plants and is a naturally occurring compound. CBD is reported to bring about a sense of peace and wellness in human beings. You can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.
Here at Mind and Body Improvements, we are dedicated to improving your physical and mental well-being. We’ll serve as a resource for you as you learn more about how CBD can support you.
We offer CBD in several forms.
Tinctures are sublingual CBD Oils. You generally ingest tinctures with a dropper under your tongue. In this way, the CBD is delivered directly into your bloodstream. Tinctures take effect rather quickly and are extremely convenient.
Perhaps the easiest way to use CBD are topicals. Topicals are loaded with healing components. The oil/lotion based topical comes in the form of balms, salves, lotions, sprays, and ointments. They are applied to the body and will absorb through the skin. Topicals have been reported to relieve inflammatory diseases, rough skin, eczema, minor burns, muscle soreness, sunburns, swelling, joint pain, and tendinitis — they can even relieve the painful symptoms of shingles.
Edibles are increasing steadily as a preferred method of delivery. Common edibles come in such familiar foods such as lollipops, gummy bears, cookies, crackers, ice cream, chocolate bars, chewing gum, popcorn, and nut mixes, among others. Again, a major benefit of using edibles is children and the elderly can easily medicate with them.
Why do People Take CBD?
Some people take CBD because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of CBD, you need to understand what it does in the body.
CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS system helps with regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule and more. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in biological balance.
Will CBD Cause a High?
No, THC is the chemical in marijuana that produces a high.CBD that contains 0.3% THC is federally legal because this is considered too low to have any effect.
Is it Possible to Take Too Much CBD?
No. Cannabinoids have no known toxicity. While everyone’s dosage amount is different for their desired results, we suggest starting a CBD regimen in small amounts and increasing the dosage as needed to reach your desired effect.
Benefits of CBD
You’re probably wondering what the benefits of CBD are. Unfortunately, there is a strict limit on what we are allowed to tell you about CBD. We wish we could elaborate more because we are immensely proud of what we do. We hear stories from people all over the country who tell us how CBD products have changed their lives.
However, the US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all sellers of CBD products from making any specific claims about their ability to treat specific health conditions. Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process.
