CBD is not just a wellness trend. Researchers are constantly finding new ways it can help regulate the various systems in our body and the results are astounding – it has been proven to help humans with pain relief, arthritis, lowering blood pressure, anxiety, and a whole lot more. There’s also plenty of research that shows it can help your pets with various issues too. CBD is increasingly being used as a complementary therapy to aid various medications.
What is CBD and how does it work?
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol, a compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its counterpart THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol), it is non-psychoactive which means it doesn’t get you high. Most CBD is isolated from hemp or the non-psychoactive parts of the plant.
CBD binds to the endocannabinoid receptors in our bodies which in turn helps control the various hormones that regulate various functions like appetite and digestion, metabolism, pain receptors, moods, and more.
Different types of CBD products
There are several different ways CBD can be consumed – from edibles and tinctures to topical products that are applied directly to the skin on areas of concern. How much CBD you need to take varies depending on the kind of CBD product you use, your tolerance toward it, and the ailment you are trying to treat. If you are on prescription medication, it’s recommended you consult your doctor to find the right balance for you.
Tinctures are an easy, smokeless way to consume CBD. The active compounds present in CBD are dissolved into a solvent. The resulting liquid is then consumed orally as drops or in a capsule form.
CBD edibles are exactly what they sound like –ready-to-eat items of food that are infused with CBD. They are easy to carry around and discreet too. You can find CBD edibles like gummies and chocolate, among others, with varying concentrations.
Smoking (or inhaling) CBD is probably the fastest way to deliver the beneficial effects of CBD to your system as you don’t have to wait for your digestive system to do its thing. The downside is that it can take some experimenting to find what the perfect dose for you is. You can find smokeables in the form of vapes or the more traditional ‘joints’ (rolled cigarettes).
CBD topicals are lotions, balms, oils, or creams that are applied directly to the skin for targeted treatment. They are often used to treat muscle and joint aches and pains.
CBD Product Quality:
Naturally, with the legalization of CBD, there has been a flood of products on the market, and you need to be careful about where you purchase them from so that you can be assured of their efficacy and quality. One of the most important factors to look for is if a product has been tested for quality. All the products available at Apeiron North Fields are tested for their ingredients by an external laboratory to make sure that we deliver the highest-quality products.
