How do I use CBD?
There are different methods in which your body can process and absorb CBD. You can eat it, you can drink it, you can inhale it, or you can apply it topically.
CBD has the capability to enhance your total health and wellness plan. Adding hemp-derived CBD to your daily regimen can help the long-term functionality of your body’s Endocannabinoid system, which plays a huge part in human peak performance.
CBD comes in the following forms:
Caps & Pills
Tinctures & Oils
Lotion & Creams
The most common way to take CBD oil is to ingest it orally. It is metabolized by the liver, sending its active compounds to your bloodstream
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of messengers and receptors that deal with things like sleep, pain, appetite, memory, and mood. The messengers, termed cannabinoids, bind with the receptors found all through your body. The ECS is believed to be the communication system between the gut and the brain that allows them to “speak” to each other.
The body’s ENDOCANNABINOID system regulates:
Some cells in your body are covered with receptors that CBD binds to and sends messages to the nucleus of the cell.
The Entourage Effect
When you use the whole hemp plant vs. just a CBD Isolate you get the additional benefit of the Entourage Effect.
There are more than 400 trace components discovered in Hemp plants, one of the most nutritious plants in existence. They contain many vitamins & minerals, plant terpenes, and flavonoids. A lot of these compounds (i.e. Omega-3 Fatty Acids, all 20 Amino Acids, B Complex Vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Potassium, and Iron) have the capability to work together when they are consumed. When they work together (just like you and me) they have the potential to increase the benefits of the others – reinforcing the possible effects.
When selecting CBD products, many people have a preference for Full Spectrum or Whole Hemp Extract over CBD isolate or any other isolate. Isolates have zero trace of the other compounds. Therefore, NO Entourage Effect.
Simply put, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD that’s pulled from the plant and devoid of all other ingredients. Full spectrum CBD, on the other hand, contains all the natural chemicals found in the whole plant, which include various other cannabinoids, essential oils, and terpenes.
