CBD is the hot, new product on the market now, and with new products come lots of questions.  What is it?  How do I take it?  What kind of product is good for me?  We’ve all been there.  CBD (Cannabidiol) has been the best kept secret in revolutionized, natural medicine.  Finally, in 2018 it was legalized in all 50 US states and almost all countries as well.

Everywhere you look, CBD is being sold in stores and in various forms.  You can find products such as balms for your grandmothers arthritis to CBD oils for your other half (AKA your dog). If you haven’t experienced the benefits yet go ahead and give it a try.

So What is this Magic Supplement?

Cannabidiol is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant itself. It is non-psychoactive unlike tetrahydrocannabinoil (THC).  To break this down, both CBD and THC come from the same cannabis plant, but have different atom arrangements to result in different affects on the body. Think “brother from another mother” type deal. I know this can be really confusing all at once, but stick around and we will cover the differences between these two more in depth on a later date.

“My Endocannabin…What?”

Your endocannabinoid system is a biological system that reaches several facets of your body.  This system is present in all areas including your brain, organs, tissue, and so on.  It is a part of you that is instilled before birth and stays with you until the end of your life.

Why haven’t you heard about this before?  I don’t know about you, but when I meet up with my friends we don’t typically chat about our endocannabinoid systems, but, to each their own!

The main purpose of this system is to promote health and balance in your body.  The human body naturally makes endocannabinoids regularly and these molecules are very similar to CBD itself.  When there is an imbalance in your body, you naturally self-regulate eCBs to maintain your health them there is an imbalance.

While some people’s endocannabinoid system may be working flawlessly, others may find balance through the use of our products.  This is where CBD comes in. Our bodies respond very well to CBD, and if taken consistently your endocannabinoid system will work in harmony with this supplement.  Using your cannabinoid receptors, you may start feeling affects from this product in as little as 5 days!

Of course, everyone is different, and each endocannabinoid system is different.  We encourage you to use CBD products consistently for one month to truly see the benefits and the response from your system.

How and How Often do I Take CBD?

Just like any supplement, CBD dosage differs for everyone.  The dosage requirement is determined by several different facets: BMI, weight, age, lifestyle, etc. There is no “one size fits all” for CBD.

While some people can take 15mg per day and feel the affects, others may need 40-50mg per day depending on their severe conditions.  Overall, a general consensus is 20-25mg per day to start.  You can always add more if necessary.  With CBD, there shouldn’t ever be a question of “I don’t know if this is working.”  If you are taking the right dosage and have given your endocannabinoid system time to adjust, you will know if CBD is working.

What are you waiting for?  It is apparent that this is a healthy, safe, and potentially EFFECTIVE form of achieving health and balance again in your body.  We encourage you to try this alternative form of medicine today!
