How to Add CBD to Your AM Routine


CBD is the short abbreviation for cannabidiol; it is among the many chemical compounds, or cannabinoids, found in hemp and marijuana. There are a lot of benefits in CBD, the major being that CBD is not psychoactive, so as to say it's not what gets you stoned. Research has proven that it's also different from marijuana, which has proven to reduce human pain. Cannabidiol is a much known natural remedy used for many common sicknesses. It‘s one of the over numerous chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the marijuana or cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa).


Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the major psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and it is responsible for the sensation of getting high (disordered) that are often associated with hemp or marijuana. In other words, CBD is not psychoactive, unlike THC.


This makes CBD an attractive option for those who are looking for relief from pain as well as other symptoms without the mental-altering effects of certain pharmaceutical drugs or marijuana.

CBD oil is produced by extracting Cannabidiol from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with oil content substance like hemp seed oil or coconut.


WHAT DOES CBD IT DO?


Different research has shown that CBD is helpful by lessening anxiety for individuals who have psychosis or schizophrenia, or people who are addicted to opiates. However, because of its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD could even help treat acne according to research.

Research also has it that CBD could also be used in treating epilepsy for children, although this has not been fully authenticated.


Below are benefits of using CBD OIL and why it should be added to daily eating routine:


CBD ENCOURAGES BALANCE

CBD tends to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a network which is responsible for controlling body functions like appetite, sleep, immune response and mood. The body can create its own naturally occurring cannabinoids, which then interacts with the endocannabinoid system’s which posses the cannabinoid receptors to regulate these functions.


By eking out these endocannabinoids with hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD daily, this can help further embolden our endocannabinoid systems to achieve homeostasis within the body and when the body and its functions are in balance, you will be able to perform at your peak. 


HEMP OIL SUPPLEMENTS HEALTHY DIET

To be completely healthy, a healthy and complete diet is mandatory. A hemp oil supplement contains more than just CBD and other trace of cannabinoids. The hemp plant is a natural source of nutrients that are at-times insufficient in our daily diets; such nutrients include:


  • Vitamin E

  • B complex vitamins

  • Vitamin C

  • Omega fatty acids

  • Calcium

  • Essential amino acids

  • Magnesium


Also, hemp oil adds essential amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, terpenes, chlorophyll and fiber to make sure that our body obtains the dietary requirements that are important for it to function efficiently. So adding a daily CBD supplement to your daily diets will help boost the nutritional value of that diet.


CBD OIL IS NON-INTOXICATING

CBD is not an intoxicating compound, thus making CBD hemp oil a general supplement for people of all ages. This also means that one can seamlessly add the daily nutrient and balancing benefits of hemp oil without having to think of any temporary distractions that come along with euphoric effects.


CBD products gotten from hemp contain only small traces of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound in cannabis that is responsible for any intoxicating effects.


HOW TO ADD CBD OIL TO YOUR REGIMEN

Adding CBD to our daily regimen has been made more simple, we all know we humans have different taste and ways which we eat or incorporate things into our food, it differs so badly that Mr. A might want to add solid CBD to his tea or coffee while Mr. B detest that a lot and will rather use CBD that comes in liquid forms. This preference has made the medical companies produce different types of CBD readily available to customers in different forms and styles. Below are the ways CBD comes and selecting the one that suits one's style is a matter of choice.


CBD Oil Concentrate Oral Applicators

This comes in liquid form and it has the highest concentration of CBD, it is taken in into the body by injection method.


TOPICAL SALVES

This CBD looks like a balm; it is robbed in the body, the topical salves helps to warn and strengthen those weak muscles one contains after each workday. A topical salve is recommended to be used after a strenuous work-out.


CBD CAPSULES

This CBD comes in capsule forms; they can be taken as a supplement after food just like our usual vitamin supplements. Adding CBD capsule to your list of supplements is a good decision because it helps to maintain a healthy diet balance.


CBD TINCTURES / OILS

Because a CBD tincture is concentrated, it’s designed to be taken in small doses. This is why most tinctures come with a built-in dropper that allows users to take small, carefully measured quantities sublingually (under your tongue).


Usually, I would NOT recommend mixing CBD Oil into food and/or drink since it is not water soluble. HOWEVER, CTFO's 10xPURE line of CBDA is hydrophilic so it CAN MIX WITH WATER. It can also be added easily to drinks like coffee and tea; an evening cup of chamomile paired with CBD tincture stands to be even more relaxing than usual.


CBD VAPE PENS

This is made at high concentration and it is only recommended to those impatience ones who want to get a quick result. Right now I would NOT recommend this method as there have been some reported vape related illnesses (better safe than sorry!).


In summary, everyone takes CBD for different reasons best known to them. And while one might decide not to take CBD daily, others could be comfortable taking CBD on a consistent, daily schedule and that will surely work for his/her own needs.
