CBD (cannabidiol) is derived from the hemp plant. It's popularity continues to rocket throughout the globe. This is because of the amazing benefits this power house plant can bring. Generations are now being educated more than ever about CBD and it's phenomenal solutions to enable and support good health.
CBD is now available in many forms, and it's usually personal preference that helps us choose which one is right for us.
For centuries the humble hemp plant has been a source for many consumables. There seems to be no end of uses this plant can offer. From rope, paper, textiles, shoes, biofuels,and much more,the list goes on.
The discovery that CBD oil can be extracted from this wondrous plant and provide the most amazing health benefits is truly astounding.
Not only can CBD oil be extracted from hemp, but when the female hemp plant matures (cannabis sativa L), it produces an abundance of hemp flowers. Hemp flowers are renowned for being packed with cannabidiol, flavonoids, and terpenes.
A very versatile product, hemp flowers can be added into our daily routines quite easily. They can be incorporated into our diets by adding them into things like salads, soups, dressings, and even baking. They have an aromatic, earthy, nutty taste, and work well with most food.
Hemp flowers can also be smoked in a pre-rolled joint, (without the harmful tobacco of course). Pre-rolled joints can bring relaxation and relief for pain and discomfort quickly. There is no psychoactive effective from a pre-rolled joint, unlike the familiar THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), whereby you will experience a mind-altering 'high' sensation and a feeling of euphoria.
Production and sales of CBD oil continues to rise. Again, CBD oil is versatile. The usual way to ingest CBD oil would be a few drops under the tongue. This way it can make it's way into our bloodstream pretty quickly. As with the CBD flowers, CBD oil can be added into food and drink if preferred.
Some are surprised that CBD oil can also be used topically. Many skin conditions can be treated with positive results.
A little goes a long way, and massaged daily into the affected area, can bring relief and healing. In fact CBD oil or even CBD infused creams can be used in much the same way as any other lotions, ointments, creams, balms, salves, or moisturizers.Using CBD products in a topical way will not allow CBD to get into your bloodstream, although for problematic conditions ingesting a little CBD in conjunction with using it topically is beneficial. CBD oil can be used topically on the following conditions :
- muscle pain
- itchy rashes
- nerve pain
....and many more.
Widely available now on the high street and online CBD products are quite accessible.
This handy supplement is a must for supporting general health an wellbeing.
CBD is safe to use and non-addictive.
