CBD has become one of the most popular products available today. It’s popularity is fueled by a growing body of evidence which suggests that CBD can help people deal with a variety of illnesses and problems, including pain. This is one of the many reasons why CBD has become so popular.
It’s important to understand just how CBD works when it comes to pain relief. The good news is that there is quite a bit of potential in this area. To that end, here’s a look at 4 CBD products that can help you with pain relief & recovery.
CBD’s relatively recent legalization and its rapid rise in popularity have come despite the fact that much more research needs to be done in the field. It is for this reason that so many articles about CBD are couched with the phrase “more research is needed.”
However, some things about CBD are understood. CBD works by impacting your body’s naturally occurring Endocannabinoid System, which consists of your body’s own cannabinoids and the cannabinoid receptors which are studded around your organs, skin and muscles. When those cannabinoids bond with cannabinoid receptors, it produces are a variety of different reactions. CBD impacts your Endocannabinoid System by increasing the strength and length of these reactions. This, in turn, may help reduce the pain your body feels.
A variety of studies have found that CBD may be able to help reduce numerous types of pain, including chronic pain, arthritis and neuroprathic pain.
One of the best things about CBD is that it is an extremely versatile compound. As a result, you have the opportunity to ingest CBD in a manner which work best for you, for what you are trying to accomplish and your needs. Here’s an overview of four CBD methods which work great for pain relief and recovery.
Topicals are exactly what they sound like: CBD infused oils or creams which you can apply directly to the skin and to areas of pain, allowing the CBD to diffuse directly into your skin.
Topicals have numerous advantages over other forms of CBD. You can rub them directly into your skin and into areas of pain or soreness, allowing for extremely targeted relief. Furthermore, topicals can be combined with other products that can help to further enhance the relief CBD provides.
On the other hand, it can take them some time to work, since the CBD has to work through the skin, muscles and fat in your body. Furthermore, controlling the amount of CBD you actually consume can be difficult, as it is difficult to determine dosage when it comes to rubbing a substance into your skin.
If topicals are something which interest you, there are many potential options. For example, there are numerous types of Body Butters, which come in either the 500mg or 1000mg variety. Cooling Gels of either 500mg or 1000mg are also options–these gels can help you relax and recover after a hard workout.
Furthermore, CBD is starting to come in a variety of new and creative products, such as massage oils. This not only helps you better enjoy a massage, but comes with the added benefit of being infused with CBD. If this is something you are interested in, you can check out our Full Spectrum massage oils, which come in either 600mg or 1200mg varieties.
CBD edibles are one of the more enjoyable ways of consuming CBD. This is for obvious reasons: They taste great! They come in a variety of varieties, but typically, CBD gummies are the most popular. If this is something you are interested in trying, you should check out our 10mg Gummies.
In addition to tasting great, CBD Gummies are also easy to dose, as each gummy should come with a set dosage, thus taking the guess work out of consumption. While the impact of consuming gummies isn’t quite instantaneous, it usually doesn’t take gummies more than 30 minutes before you start to feel their impact, so you don’t have to wait for long.
The only potential downside is if you have food allergies or diabetes. If that’s the case, depending on your individual situation, consuming a gummy may not be for you. However, fear not: There are plenty of other options
Tinctures are concentrated CBD which has been mixed with a carrier oil and flavoring. They can then be mixed in with food or drink, or taken sublingually (under the tongue). Taking tinctures directly under the tongue dramatically decreases the amount of time which it takes to feel relief, so if you want to get the CBD into your system as quickly as possible, this is your best, safest option. Furthermore, since they typically come in an eye droplet, measuring the dosage is easy.
If this is a form of CBD consumption you’d like to consider, you have many options. If you don’t want any flavoring in your CBD, check out our natural, full spectrum brands, which come in 500mg, 1000mg and 2000mg. You can also try mint flavoring, which is also available in dosages of 500mg, 1000mg, and 2000mg,
For a no frills, easily consumable way of getting CBD into your system, you can check out CBD Soft Gels, available in 25mg dosages. Like any capsule, these allow for easy swallowing and highly accurate dosages. They do travel through the digestive system, which means they have to be broken down in your stomach before working (thus making it not as instantaneous to work), but if general pain and recovery is what you are looking for, you may find that this form of CBD is the best way to go.
