The Benefits of Using CBD

What You Need to Know About CBD

In recent years, cannabidiol, more commonly called CBD, has grown in popularity. Known for its calming, anxiety-relieving effects, it’s easy to see why. CBD currently helps treat anxiety, depression, acne, heart disease, and more. If anything, one thing is clear: CBD isn’t just a fad, it’s a miracle worker.

CBD vs. THC

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. CBD is non-psychoactive, while tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, produces a high or euphoric effect. 

Benefits of CBD

CBD has appealed to the masses because of its positive effects on both health and wellness. It offers relief to those experiencing physical and mental pain. When the two cannabinoids are combined, CBD can mitigate some of the psychoactive effects of THC that users might find unpleasant. Anxiety, depression, stress, and various mental illness symptoms can be alleviated with the help of CBD. It can reduce acne and other skin issues. It aids in treating side effects associated with chemotherapy as well as other cancer-related symptoms. Those who suffer from neurological disorders may find relief from CBD because of its possible neuroprotective properties, resulting in the benefits of brain signaling, brain disorders, reducing seizures for those with epilepsy, and helping prevent cognitive decline. Lastly, CBD can also benefit those with heart conditions, including high blood pressure and heart disease. 

Forms of CBD

Ready to try CBD? Well, it’s important to know that there are different methods of consumption. These include edibles, drinks, tinctures and oils, calming lotions, vaporizers, and patches. Edibles like gummies, chocolates, and other snacks are CBD-infused and may have little to no THC in them. CBD beverages have become a popular form of consumption. Some of these CBD-infused drinks include water, coffee, soda, kombucha, and alcohol. It may take anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours to feel the effects of CBD when it is ingested orally. Oils and tinctures are drops placed under the tongue. Tinctures typically have other ingredients added to them for potency. It takes about 20 minutes to feel the effects of both CBD oils and tinctures. CBD can be applied topically through lotions and creams, lasting up to 5 hours. Vapes are used to inhale CBD and it is absorbed almost immediately through the lungs. CBD is absorbed through the skin with patches. It enters the bloodstream and is released over a period of about 4-6 hours. 

Dosage

Every person reacts to CBD differently, so it is important to consider a few factors when figuring out how much to take. The dosage is dependent on your body weight, what you are using the CBD for, body chemistry, and the concentration of CBD (and in some cases, THC) used in your preferred method of consumption.
