26 Apr Using CBD for Relaxation
In today’s stressful world, relaxation is often regarded as a luxury that not all of us can achieve. However, a relaxed, mellow mood may be closer than you think with CBD oil products from HempMeds®.
Our daily use CBD supplements interact naturally with the body to encourage more relaxed feelings and an overall sense of calm.
More and more, consumers are turning to CBD to help achieve balance within their body’s systems, allowing them to live their best lives.
There are more than 100 known cannabinoids, of which CBD is just one. When found in plants like those in the cannabis family, including hemp and marijuana, these cannabinoids are known as phytocannabinoids.
Phytocannabinoids interact with the body’s native endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for functions like appetite and metabolism, sleep, immune response, and even mood.
When ingested, CBD is absorbed by the bloodstream and transported throughout the body where it interacts indirectly with the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors to provide its many balancing and restorative effects.
Unlike THC, which is found primarily in the marijuana plant, CBD derived from the hemp plant will not cause users to feel high and is federally legal in the U.S.
Relaxation, Not Intoxication
Because CBD is non-psychoactive, it has become the cannabinoid of choice for users looking for mood enhancement without the often anxiety-inducing high caused by THC.
Many CBD users do report feeling increased relaxation when taking CBD products like those from HempMeds®. While this may be misperceived as being “high”, it is simply an effect of the CBD and shouldn’t be confused with the impairing psychoactive effects of THC.
Modern stressors often keep our bodies on high alert, engaging our natural “fight or flight” response to stress. Because of our constant stress levels, our body remains on edge perpetually. CBD quiets this fight or flight response, allowing you to feel calmer and more relaxed in the face of stressful situations.
How to Use CBD for Relaxation
Are you looking to take advantage of the calming effects of CBD, but don’t know where to start? HempMeds® offers a number of CBD products that can be taken to promote a sense of tranquility.
CBD works best when taken every day as a dietary supplement. That is because supplementing the endocannabinoid system in your body adds to its efficiency in both the short and long term. When cannabinoids like CBD are added to the endocannabinoid system daily, it increases the number of cannabinoid receptors present in the body. It is suggested that you find a product that works best for your individual needs and that you feel comfortable taking daily.
However, when you feel like you need it, you can also take an additional serving of CBD anytime throughout the day to encourage relaxation. When taking these additional CBD servings, you may want to consider a product that can be taken sublingually.
Providing effects quicker than products that must be digested, CBD supplements like RSHO™ pure hemp oil in our oral applicators and RSHO™ CBD Liquids can be held under the tongue for up to 90 seconds or more before swallowing for fast absorption through the mouth’s mucous membranes and a quicker onset of calming effects.
