Just Getting Started With CBD?
If you’ve seen CBD in the news, around town, or have had friends who use it, you no doubt know by now just how popular this natural cannabinoid has become. With confusing labeling on some products and sometimes a lack of good public information on the subject, it’s easy to see why many in the U.S. are still hesitant to try it or are skeptical of its potential effects.
What You Need To Know
CBD, formally known as cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid found naturally in cannabis among other terpenes. Specifically, CBD is most commonly extracted from the hemp variety of the cannabis plant. Hemp, while commonly used in food and industrial products, also provides an excellent source of cannabidiol. CBD works to influence your body through its natural endocannabinoid system. This system regulates countless different processes in your body ranging anywhere from homeostasis to mood and sleep.
Below we’ll discuss some of the most common reasons for using CBD, how it may help, and what applications are best for each situation.
Muscle And Joint Pain
Your endocannabinoid system’s CB1 and CB2 receptors help process any cannabinoids like CBD you consume. It responds by reducing inflammation in the body. When your muscles are tired and worn out, CBD can help by allowing excess oxygen and metabolites to be exchanged. This ultimately leads to less discomfort and better recovery. CBD’s strong anti-inflammatory properties are also excellent for swollen and inflamed joints. We recommend using CBD Sports Cream directly on the area of discomfort. CBD Salves and Bath Bombs may also help you feel your best and potentially reduce your pain.
CBD has shown great promise in alleviating stress and even strong anxiety. In studies, it’s been shown that individuals who were given CBD before a stressful task performed better than those given a placebo in terms of anxiety symptoms. For centuries, humans have been using cannabis to find relief from stress and pain. With CBD, you can receive many of the benefits of traditional cannabis, but without impairment from THC. For those that have anxiety or stress issues, Danu recommends our CBD oil tinctures, as well as our and highly absorbable and convenient CBD softgels.
It’s difficult for many to fall and stay asleep in these times. With seemingly endless distractions and electronic devices to keep our minds busy, it’s no wonder that almost 1 in 5 Americans have trouble with sleep. CBD may help your body and mind relax while reducing discomfort, making it easier for you to fall asleep and gain much-needed rest. For sleep health, easy-to-swallow and highly absorbable CBD softgels with melatonin are a great choice. Indulging in a tasty CBD gummy before bed may also be the perfect way to finish off your day and recharge for the next.
Mood And Homeostasis
Your body’s state of homeostasis — its innate ability to create temperature equilibrium and balance across numerous systems — may be positively affected by using CBD. Your body’s natural state of balance can influence your mood and sense of emotional wellbeing. For supporting your gut health, and therefore your homeostasis, Danu recommends using CBD softgels. Ours feature proprietary nanoemulsion particles that are water-soluble. This boosts their efficacy significantly. Our delicious broad-spectrum CBD oil tinctures may also be a great choice for mood-boosting.
