It’s safe to say that CBD products have started to flood the market. With so many different brands and products, it can be difficult to choose what CBD product is best for you.
If you want to learn more about what CBD is, what benefits CBD has to offer, and what CBD products are available, read on!
What Is CBD?
The Cannabis plant which has been studied for years, has only come into the limelight until recently. Part of the Cannabacae family, the Cannabis plant is made up of eighty different chemical compounds.
Researchers have done extensive research on two of the most common compounds, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). While these two compounds have completely different effects on the human mind and body, people will often confuse them for one another.
THC and CBD act differently on different receptors in the brain. THC is known to produce psychoactive effects, while CBD does not. THC has been found to increase heart rate, have mood and mind altering effects, and give you the feeling of being “high.” CBD is known to be safe and well tolerated, and unlike THC, will not give you the “high” feeling.
CBD was first discovered in 1940 while researchers were studying the Cannabis plant. The recent shift in attention among specialists and consumers in CBD, can be attributed to the passing of the Farm Bill in 2014.
The Farm Bill allowed the legalization of hemp in the United States, with one restriction — hemp-derived products must contain less than 0.3% THC. In this version of the bill, hemp (also known as industrial hemp) was approved to be used for limited purposes, by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and state departments of agriculture.
The bill was expanded in 2018 which allows the sale, transportation, and distribution of hemp products, only if that hemp adheres to federal regulations. Additionally, the hemp must be produced by a licensed grower.
While hemp is legal in the United States, it does not allow farmers to grow hemp as freely as apples or corn. Hemp will still remain a very heavily regulated crop.
With the passing of the Farm Bill, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) removed industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances.
Benefits of CBD
Many believe that CBD can assist in alleviating tension and calming anxiety and others have reported that CBD has calming effects for those that experience seizures or insomnia.
Consumers that prefer to take advantage of the benefits from the Cannabis plant without feeling “high,” tend to gravitate towards CBD products rather than THC. Known for its rejuvenating and restorative effects when addressing numerous illnesses, various studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
It’s no secret that there has been new attention surrounding preventative care and medicine in today’s society, consumers have decided to purchase products that offer natural ingredients with all-encompassing benefits.
When choosing the CBD product that is right for you, look for products that are CBD-rich rather than purified CBD.
Studies have indicated that CBD-rich products, like CBD oil, are believed to help individuals that suffer from chronic pain and inflammation. For those that are considering using CBD products for health purposes, it is important to consult with your doctor before doing so.
How Can I Use CBD?
CBD can be applied topically or ingested as a consumable.
Topical products are to be applied externally and can easily be integrated into your daily wellness routine. Convenient and simple to use, consumers tend to prefer topicals because they can feel the benefits of CBD without ingesting the product.
A88CBD™ Muscle Salve, Hydrating Body Lotion, Lip Balm, Hand + Foot Cream, Bath Salts, and Essential Oils, are premium, high-quality topicals that are easy to integrate into your day.
CBD oil tinctures, composed of hemp oil extract and CBD, are popular among those who prefer to consume CBD. CBD oil tinctures are meant to be placed under the tongue and held in for 30-60 seconds.
However, not all CBD oil tinctures are effective and safe. Labels should include the measurement of CBD and THC, and online stores should be able to provide a background on the company, where the CBD is grown and sourced, and the ingredients in each product.
All CBD products should contain less than 0.3% THC and instructions for suggested use.
If you’re interested in maximizing the benefits CBD has to offer, A88CBD™ offers ingestibles designed with a water soluble formula, referred to as C10™, which allows for rapid onset absorption making it easy for the user to self-dose.
This differentiates A88CBD™ products from competitors as the new and advanced formula allows for effects to be felt within 10 minutes, compared to traditional oil-based tinctures that can sometimes take up to 2 hours to take into effect.
CBD gummies, popular for their consistent dosage per serving, are popular among those who prefer to ingest CBD to benefit from their therapeutic properties. Gummies are commonly offered in a variety of flavors.
A88CBD™ gummies come in three different flavors — Tart Cherry, Strawberry Basil, and Lime Mango. If you’re looking for a tasty experience with added benefits, A88CBD™ gummies are available for online purchase.
