CBD continues to be a hot topic for its amazing benefits and healing powers. You may see it at your local market, doctors office, yoga studio and online. People may mention it to you as something you “should” try. If you don’t know much about CBD yet, don’t worry! There is a lot of information available on what it is and how it may help you.
People are using CBD to soothe all kinds of health issues such as cramps, anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, inflammation and even more serious disease. That sounds great, but what specifically are the benefits of using CBD? We will discuss t game changing benefits of using CBD.
CBD in small frequent doses has shown an ability to reduce stress from panic attacks. It works with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to balance the nervous system and brain. When your nervous system is more balanced, you’ll feel less anxiety. And, after a while, you’ll find that formerly anxiety-producing events in your life may not create such a strong reaction. The oil drops tincture is the go-to product for people who are feeling anxious and need relief right away. It’s our fastest acting product. Just use the dropper to put some CBD oil under your tongue and wait 10 seconds to let the CBD sink into your system. You may feel calmer and more relaxed almost immediately.
Many people suffer from inflammation. It’s a leading cause of many illnesses and can put you at risk for heart disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, migraines, etc. Finding the balance in your every day is the fundamental key to avoiding inflammation in your body and living a healthy life.
CBD is an analgesic as it binds itself to your body’s cell receptors to bring inflammation down. Studies continue to monitor this to better understand this reaction and how your body responds to CBD. We hear a lot of feedback from customers that our CBD Transdermal Patches are especially great for reducing inflammation.
3. Daily wellness
We often tell people — don’t wait until you have issues to start using CBD. Many people say they stopped using our products once they felt better. That is great since our goal is to make you feel better, but our overall goal is to make sure you stay feeling better. One way to do that is by maintaining a healthy lifestyle including supplements. CBD can be used as a daily supplement. While the Oil Drops are great when you need immediate relief, our Soft Gels can be used daily to maintain a healthy amount of CBD in your system. The systemic ability of CBD to help your immune and nervous systems greatly increases when you use CBD consistently over the long term.
4. Pain Relief
Your body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system produces cannabinoids that help your body to achieve balance and homeostasis. The ECS is vital in creating homeostasis in your body and is responsible for counteracting many stressors in your life. In fact, the total number of endocannabinoid receptors in the body is believed to be greater than all other neuromodulatory receptors found in the body combined, including receptors for the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
Maintaining a healthy endocannabinoid system is key to alleviating inflammation, anxiety, pain and restoring balance in your life. While we certainly believe diet, good sleep patterns, and exercise plays a huge role in your everyday health sometimes you need extra support. You may be saying, “I would love to sleep better” or “I’m in chronic pain and it’s too hard to exercise.” This is where CBD comes in.
The ECS has many receptors all over the body and when you introduce certain molecules to the system they will bind themselves to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors interact with cannabinoids very similarly, but in fact look differently and support different areas of the body.
The CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain and nervous system, while the CB2 receptors can be found in the immune and gastrointestinal systems. Scientists are researching and discovering ways in which natural and holistic options can help communicate with the receptors. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are already functioning in the body, but when exposed to CBD the receptors come alive. These receptors start working at a higher level, which causes so many great benefits for your body. That’s why CBD helps alleviate so many issues you may be experiencing. CBD is the support your ECS needs to help balance sleep patterns, calm anxiety, reduce inflammation and more!
5. Sleep aid
The body naturally knows when it needs to produce more antibodies or release proteins in order to help your system stay balanced. So, in order for the body to have the best chance of success, you need to give it time to heal itself. That time is during sleep.
CBD and other cannabinoid-rich products can aid in the process of healing while you sleep. Cannabinoids bond with receptors in your brain and within your immune system to help promote cell activity. This connection allows you to heal faster.
If your curiosity is piqued and you’re ready to try CBD, it’s important to choose the right product that will suit your needs. All of our TerraGold Plus CBD products can provide benefits because they all contain CBD. However, some people prefer Soft Gels over Oil Drops or Body Balm over Patches. In order to make the buying process easier, we’ve created a CBD Buying Guide. Check it out to help you decide which product is best for you!
