CBD 101

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is by far one of the most studied compounds of the 116-plus known cannabinoids found in industrial hemp. Being a natural compound of the plant, CBD can make up nearly 40 percent of hemp’s contents. Unlike THC, CBD is non-intoxicating, which means it will not get you high.

CBD is often regarded as the single most crucial cannabinoid ever discovered. Why? Unlike many other drugs, it is 100% organic, no synthetic here. And with on-going research, the list of CBD’s uses continues to grow exponentially. Whether it’s to maintain general wellbeing or becoming more proactive with a daily wellness routine, CBD oil is useful.

The Best Way to Take CBD

What is the best way to get it into your system? Well that depends on your needs and preferences. You can apply CBD and other cannabinoids through different methods. Your choice of administration can affect how CBD works with your body. Common ways of administering CBD are: 

  • Ingestion (eating or swallowing) 
  • Sublingual (under the tongue)
  • Inhalation (smokeable)
  • Topically (on the skin)

Bioavailability

Your body’s absorption of CBD from the application area into the bloodstream is known as its bioavailability.  Maximizing bioavailability means getting more CBD into your bloodstream. Taking the cannabidiol through various means changes its bioavailability. 

For example, eating gummies requires digestion. The digestive system breaks down the gummies and all it’s components before the CBD is passed into the blood stream. Through this digestive process, some of the CBD is broken down and potency is diminished. If you’re not in excruciating pain, losing a little is okay—plus gummies taste great.

Know before you use, what you need. That way you can choose the best method for your needs and ensure you get the most benefit from your CBD.

Historically

Ancient civilizations have used various strains of cannabis for centuries. Cannabis’s wealth of wellness properties is not a new discovery. Due to dramatic shifts in legislation and public opinion, cannabinoids became widely unaccepted. 

As the health communities are demanding more organic and natural methods, science communities have increased research. As a result, more benefits and properties of different cannabinoids are being discovered, documented, and legalized. The prohibition that once restricted and limited the use of CBD has evolved, and cannabis’s natural alternatives are at your fingertips.

    This product is one of a kind and this comes from a person that is skeptical of products like this. You just apply a small amount anywhere there is pain. It rubs in quick and sooths. It was a light ment smell. Within minutes you’ll have relief. I have a slip disk in L5-S1. I could not stand straight up after a long day and a friend of mine rubbed this on my back. I drove 20 minutes home and couldn’t believe that the pain was easing up. When I stepped out of my car, I was able to stand up straight with barely any pain. I highly recommend the topical of the product.
