You may have already seen or heard a bit about CBD and have some questions. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a compound naturally found in Hemp and Cannabis plants. CBD is non-intoxicating and does not produce a “high” as does THC. By legal definition, hemp derived products must contain less than 0.3% THC. Numerous studies indicate CBD may support homeostasis, or balance, within the body’s natural rhythms. Some users of CBD products experience incredible benefits.

The main purpose of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in both humans and animals is to regulate homeostasis - a state of equilibrium keeping body and mind at a natural resting stage.

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found naturally in our body (ECS) and in the Hemp plant. ECS receptors in our brain, central nervous system, digestive tract, organs, skin, and other areas interact with cannabinoids. 

If you decide to try CBD, identify a brand you can trust with independent, third party testing. This extra step verifies the purity and effectiveness of ingredients saving consumers from cheap fillers and potential allergens that may be in inferior products. It also guarantees products have less than 0.3% THC.

A 20-25mg dosage once or twice a day is a great starting point for the average adult. Stay with your CBD dosage for three to four weeks then assess how you feel. Most people have the best results after a few weeks when it has had time to balance their endocannabinoid system.

The most effective way of taking CBD is in a liquid form. Tinctures (drops) are typically sold in 1oz bottles with variety of strength, generally containing 250mg, 500mg and 1000mg amounts of CBD in each bottle. A dropper full of 1000mg tincture has approximately 35mg of CBD and a 500mg tincture has half that amount in each dose. People draw a personalized dosage into the dropper then place the liquid under their tongue to hold for one or two minutes. The liquid is easily absorbed by the blood vessels under your tongue providing quick, effective results.

Liquid capsules are the next, fastest-acting product as the CBD oil will enter your system once the capsule has been digested. Orally consuming CBD Gummies provides longer lasting result as they naturally travel slower through the digestive system. Liquid capsules and gummies generally come in 20-30mg individual doses which allow you to easily take your daily dosage at any time of the day. CBD products are also available for your furry friends.

Topical applications applied directly to the skin are popular. Apply a modest amount to feel the benefits as it absorbs into your skin.
