What can you use CBD for?
As with any supplement, the effects (and the amount you need to experience those effects) can vary based on your own body chemistry, but here are some of the researched effects of CBD:
- analgesic/pain relief
Your body already loves it.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants like echinacea, flax, and of course, hemp. However, plants aren’t the only source of these wonderful phytonutrients. Cannabinoids also exist naturally in the human body, within the Endocannabinoid system- a system that regulates the proper functioning of your cells, and so much more. Cannabinoids can even be found in breast milk!
CBD is adaptive.
CBD will affect each individual differently based upon their level of inflammation in the body, ability to produce naturally occurring cannabinoids, and absorption rate. If someone is in acute or chronic pain, they will require more than someone who is generally healthy. The same guideline must be applied across the board. Self-experimentation and intuitive judgment are required to know what amount of CBD is necessary for any individual. A good starting place is 10-15mg of active ingredients and increase or decrease as needed.
The benefits build.
Your body will build up a storage of CBD in the body, which is unlike most chemicals. Unlike alcohol, which is usually absent from the bloodstream and body within 24-48 hours after ingestion, CBD is fat-soluble and may stay bound to the cells of the body for weeks.
