In the last few years, CBD has gone from a little-known or talked about supplement into a mainstream phenomenon. And people who haven’t benefitted from the positive impact are still wondering why it is so popular. Well, a CBD capsule makes just as much sense to add to your daily diet as a multi-vitamin does.
Just in case you are still worried about it, CBD is an extract from the cannabis plant. And contains none of the THC that can impact you mentally (psychoactive). So, you cannot get high from CBD.
Surprise! We are going to start a positive impact on something practical and necessary for your body. Fibers are essential to our health. A good digestive system that functions typically will be supported by what we eat – and usually a supplement too. CBD is rich in the fibers we need to help your digestive system, lower cholesterol, and balance sugar levels.
One of the common side effects of diabetes is that the body begins to attack the pancreas. The pancreas produces and regulates insulin and blood sugar levels in our system. The damage caused is often due to the presence of inflammatory proteins. CBD is packed with anti-inflammatory effects, which means it can help to combat the harmful proteins in the body of a diabetic person. Not only that, but CBD can help reduce the insulin resistance that can happen.
The immune system is incredibly complex. And for many years, people have taken multi-vitamins, echinacea, and more to help boost it. Many of the illnesses that benefit from the use of CBD are autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and lupus. CBD can contribute to rebalancing the immune system. The rebalancing means that people who have an overstimulated immune system can benefit from this particular impact.
There has been more research done on the positive impact that CBD has on anxiety. Many people report that adding a tincture to their daily life and micro-dosing throughout the day or having a large capsule in the morning gives them a positive impact and lessens their anxiety. Many people have found incredibly positive results taking CBD for depression too.
There are a few ways that you can take a dose to help anxiety. For social occasions, you can have a few drops under the tongue an hour or so before the event. This is one of the fastest ways to have CBD in your system. Alternatively, you can vape CBD and have it a little quicker.
CBD is a key ingredient in helping people who suffer from sleep issues. When combined with a bedtime routine, it can help the body’s natural sleep system kick into action. Sleep is controlled by our endocannabinoid system, as well as a range of other systems. The endocannabinoid system is what keeps our body in total equilibrium (homeostasis). The purer the CBD oil that you use, the more beneficial it will be to your body. When the biological process is in balance, sleep and rest are part and parcel of it.
Something that not many articles touch upon is the fact that when you find your sweet micro-dosing spot, you can increase your focus and concentration. In general, because you are likely to get a more positive outlook, you will be much happier to get to the task at hand. CBD helps with anxiety and stress, this means that any ‘brain noise’ and thoughts that you typically deal with are calmed. Allowing you to focus on the task at hand.
A 2014 study found that CBD can help to lower the production of sebum, which can help people who have acne. Many people have some sort of skin issue at some point, and because CBD is a great anti-inflammatory, CBD is the ideal choice when it comes to healing and reducing the issue. There are other things like diet, genetics, and stress that impact skin. And CBD can help to tackle stress too. In basic terms, CBD triggers an anti-inflammatory reaction in the cells, and this prevented inflammatory cytokines from activating.
As well as being a great help for health issues that come under the autoimmune disorder umbrella, CBD can be used for pain relief across the board. CBD helps reduce the inflammation in joints, muscles, and more. This often eases the pain associated with that area. You can apply a topical cream or consume CBD in a capsule or a tincture. The key thing when it comes to pain management is to find the right dosage for you. You can do this by starting on a lower dose and slowly working up. Many people find that between 300-600mg is enough to help curb the pain they have.
