What Exactly is CBD?
Quality CBD requires quality growing, pure distillation, and wholistic ingredients added for absortption. Starling CBD stays organic! When consuming anything in life it’s important to understand what you are putting in your body. This is no different when it comes to CBD products.
One common concern among CBD consumers is the level of THC content. Furthermore, the federal government considers any product with over 0.3% THC marijuana and illegal. Consumers should be aware possession of marijuana is illegal both on the federal level and still in many states as well.
To ensure legality, while Marijuana is headed towards full legalization, it’s very important to purchase CBD below .3% THC. It’s also necessary for most users to keep a low THC % because CBD is often used in conjunction with daily activities such as work and exercise. THC is the psychoactive component of marijuana which produces the “high” effect.
Quality CBD: How do I know?
There are other ingredients in CBD beside THC. When mixed with other substances such as oil, CBD effortlessly enters the bloodstream. Most often CBD and oil are paired, but CBD can also be consumed in the form of gummies, pills, drinks, vaporizers, and more.
When looking to purchase CBD oil, scientific studies say MCT oil helps with absorption and consumption more effectively than other oils. MCT oil is a derivative of coconut oil. In order to extract MCT, coconut oil undergo’s an extensive, and rather expensive process to separate the MCT oil from the lesser effective substance.
Ingredients are Key
The ingredients section of a CBD product will also most likely include ‘hemp extract.’ This is numerous compounds such as omega acids, flavonoids, aromatic terpenes, phytonutrients, and Phyto cannabinoids. These compounds help the body by reducing inflammation and improving digestion and heart health. Furthermore, studies also show that CBD works better when consumed with the whole plant consisting of the compounds listed above. 99.9% pure CBD isolate’s concentration limits the effectiveness of the CBD.
Relieving Joint Pain: Striking Secrets of CBD
Relieving joint pain is one miracle now possible with methods other than pain killers and surgery. Prominently, Cannabidiol (or CBD for short) has many uses. These range across a spectrum of calming anxiety, treating epilepsy, and relieving chronic and temporary pain.. yes especially joint pain.
Without a doubt, one form of pain that CBD is especially effective at relieving is common joint pain such as arthritis. Arthritis occurs frequently in shoulders, knees, hips, wrists and elbows. It is caused when cartilage located around the joints breaks down and becomes ineffective. Without sufficient cartilage, there is nothing to absorb shock and provide a cushion for the joints. This leads to what can become excruciating pain if not properly treated. Furthermore, arthritis can further lead to a lower quality of life when basic movement become extremely hard if not impossible to undergo.
How Does CBD Help Relieve Joint Pain?
This is where CBD comes into play. It helps to relieve painful joints in two distinct ways. The first place CBD helps to relieve pain is locally, on the specific joints which are causing the pain. This relief is due to CBD’s qualities as an anti-inflammatory — huge in the fight against arthritis. When rheumatoid arthritis is engaging your joints, there is significant inflammation build up around the joints that CBD works to reduce.
The second area where CBD can provide relief is on the central nervous system. The central nervous system is what transmits signals throughout your body and controls the brain’s responses to different sensations. When the nervous system detects damage to nerves and cells such as is found in arthritis, a signal is sent to the brain detailing such damage and the brain responds with pain so as to avoid using the damaged area. CBD has the ability to calm the brain’s pain response and reduce the intensity of the signals being sent back and forth, effectively reducing joint pain.
Is CBD For Me?
Whether your joint pain arises from athletics, manual labor, or rheumatoid arthritis, seriously consider CBD as relief. Many people don’t even realize their joints are in pain but then feel so much better after trying CBD. There is still much more to be studied but no doubt CBD and joint pain relief have a bright future together.
