30 Aug A beginners guide on using CBD
How does CBD work?
CBD supports a system in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system or ECS for short. This system is responsible for making sure our mind and body function properly. Our body produces compounds called ‘Endo cannabinoids’ which work together with your ECS. Both working together help regulate your mood, sleep, liver function, pain management, muscle formation and bone growth, inflammation and our immune response, stress management, skin and nerve function, cardiovascular function and cognitive functions such as memory and learning. As you can see the ECS is involved in most of our essential functions! Your ECS can be thrown off track or made to feel overworked, and we end up feeling the negative effects. Like with everything our ECS can benefit from a little support.
Give the CBD time
If you take occasional doses of CBD oil at different times throughout the month, this could render it ineffective. CBD can take from 1-4 weeks to show any kind of result, each person is different.
You could be taking the incorrect dosage of CBD
The recommended dosage of CBD is 35mg a day. What should be taken into consideration when deciding your dosage is your age, gender, metabolism. Each person is different and only you know your body.
Are you buying your CBD oil from the wrong company
Remember that not all manufacturers are spending time researching the farms, plants and extraction methods of the CBD oil or CBD products they are selling. To avoid this spend time looking at company reviews, get a feel for the website you are on and don’t be afraid to reach out and speak with the company. Big companies are like a conveyor belt all they see is numbers! Sometimes smaller local companies are much more hands-on with their products and customers.
Here at 123 CBD we only use certified organic hemp crops. All our CBD oils and products are derived from hemp. Hemp cultivation is very beneficial to the environment and the land on which it is being grown. Hemp regenerates the soil and adds properties to it, unlike any other crop. 123 CBD are dedicated to only focus on using farmers that focus on organic farming. Our CBD oil is extracted through C02 extraction, which has been proven as the cleanest and most efficient way to extract the most amount of cannabinoids out of a hemp plant. CBD extracted by cold pressing or olive oil extraction does not have the same effectiveness as C02 extraction. Don’t believe the hype!
