Odds are, you’re here because around the holidays, you somehow ended up with a gift on your hands that you didn’t quite know what to do with. CBD is everywhere now, so finding it under your Christmas tree or as an accompaniment to your Happy Valentine’s Day card hardly came as a surprise. But…now what? What’s it really for, and do you even need it?
In this post, let’s dive into some of the benefits of CBD so that you can fully reap the benefits of your CBD gift. Who knows, maybe for the next holiday, you’ll be purchasing it for yourself!
CBD vs. Cannabis vs. Hemp: What’s the Difference?
Cannabis is a flower known for containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the active psychotropic chemical that provides the elated feeling often associated with cannabis in media and popular culture.
Cannabis plants have many derivatives and strains and are commonly used for industrial hemp purposes such as textiles and even in health food products. Hemp plants contain much more cannabidiol (CBD) than THC – the non-psychotropic counterpart to THC, which doesn’t produce the “high” that THC does. When using a product that is made from quality CBD oil, you don’t have to worry about experiencing any psychoactive effects or any THC levels showing up in your system.
Understanding Your Daily CBD Routine
One of the best aspects of CBD is just how versatile it is: creating an effective CBD routine is limited only to your imagination. For example, you can easily use your CBD gift before bed to ease into a refreshing night’s sleep that may help you feel more well-rested and clear-minded when you wake up. If you find yourself waking up with feelings of brain fog or trouble focusing, you can try to incorporate CBD products in your morning routine instead. Easily add a tincture to your morning coffee or tea to give you a focus boost on those rough Mondays when you simply can’t seem to get your day started. Joint pain, vertigo, or anxiety? CBD has been shown to aid in relieving these symptoms by countless studies and reports.
Your Daily Dose of CBD
Balancing how much CBD you need is all dependent on you and your individual needs. The amount most suited for you will vary on weight, immune system, the concentration of a select product, and what you’re using it for. For instance, our Oil Drops contain 10Mg of CBD per serving, while our topical ointments contain 500mg per 4 oz. If you follow the rule of thumb of “start low, go slow,” you shouldn’t have to worry about “overdosing” on CBD oil if you slowly increase the recommended serving size.
Why High-Quality CBD Matters
To feel the best effects of CBD, it should be as high quality as possible. To make great CBD extract, only the THC is removed from the hemp plant leaving all the beneficial components of the other cannabinoids intact. The THC has to be extracted carefully and precisely to ensure that trace amounts won’t remain to show up in a potential drug test.
