What Is CBD?
The Cannabis plant, part of the Cannabacae family, is made up of eighty different chemical compounds. While the Cannabis plant itself has been studied for many years, only up until recently did society start noticing the benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD). Not to be confused with Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), these two compounds are commonly mistaken for each other. However, they are very, very different.
First, it’s important to break down the differences between THC and CBD. The two compounds act differently on different receptors in the brain. THC is known to produce behavioral and psychoactive effects, while CBD does not. THC has been found to increase heart rate, and give you the feeling of being “high,” while CBD is known to be safe and well tolerated. Unlike THC, does not give you the “high” feeling.
CBD has attracted a lot of attention over the years from specialists, researchers, doctors, and consumers alike. Most of this sudden interest in society can be attributed to the passing of the Farm Bill.
In 2014, The Farm Bill announced the legalization of hemp in the United States. While this is a very broad statement, the bill came with one key rule — hemp-derived products must contain less than 0.3% THC. Additionally, hemp (also known as industrial hemp) was approved to be used for limited purposes, by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and state departments of agriculture.
In 2018, the bill was expanded to allow the sale, transportation, and distribution of hemp products, only if that hemp was grown and sourced in compliance with federal regulations. Additionally, the hemp must be produced by a licensed grower as hemp will still remain a heavily regulated crop.
Furthermore, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) removed industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances.
Benefits of CBD
Consumers have shown interest in CBD products as many have reported the ability for CBD to calm seizures, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. For those that suffer for insomnia, CBD is believed to provide a sense of calm and relaxation. These benefits can be found in both CBD topicals and ingestibles. However, not all CBD or CBD products are created equal.
Known for its therapeutic effects, CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In today’s society, consumers seem to have gravitated towards products that offer natural ingredients with all-encompassing benefits. When choosing the CBD product that is right for you, look for products that are CBD-rich rather than purified CBD.
Studies have indicated that CBD-rich products are believed to help individuals that suffer from chronic pain and inflammation. If you are considering CBD products for health purposes, it’s critical to consult with your doctor before doing so.
How Can I Use CBD?
As mentioned, CBD can be applied topically or ingested as a consumable.
Topical products have become popular among consumers as they can easily be applied externally and integrated into your daily wellness routine. For those that do not wish to consume CBD, topicals may suit their preference. A88CBD™ Muscle Salve, Hydrating Body Lotion, Lip Balm, Hand + Foot Cream, Bath Salts, and Essential Oils, are premium, high-quality topicals that are easy to integrate into your day.
A popular method of consumption can be found in the form of CBD oil tinctures. Composed of hemp oil extract and CBD, oil tinctures are popular among those who prefer to consume CBD by placing the substance under the tongue and holding it in for 30-60 seconds. However, not all CBD oil tinctures are effective and safe. Be sure to check the label for the measurement of CBD and THC. Online CBD stores should provide a background on the company, where the CBD is grown and sourced, and the ingredients used in each product. All CBD products should contain less than 0.3% THC and directions for suggested use.
A88CBD™ offers ingestibles designed with a water soluble formula, known as C10™, which allows for rapid onset absorption making it easy for customizable dosing. The C10™ difference in A88CBD™ products gives these products an edge as the new and advanced formula allows for effects to be felt within 10 minutes, compared to traditional oil-based tinctures that can sometimes take up to 2 hours to take into effect.
CBD gummies are liked for their consistent dosage per serving. Gummies are commonly offered in a variety of flavors. A88CBD™ gummies come in three different flavors — Tart Cherry, Strawberry Basil, and Lime Mango. If you’re looking for a tasty experience with added benefits, A88CBD™ gummies are available for online purchase.
