The CBD buzz finally got to you? Here’s everything you should know as a first-time CBD user. 

CBD is a buzzword these days. Everybody talks about it, medical specialists support its potential health benefits, Netflix makes documentaries about it, and some of your friends probably are already using it. Well, this may have got you really confused about whether or not you should try it yourself. 

So, what exactly is CBD? What does it help people with? And, how can you use it? You’ll find all the answers in this blog. Keep reading below to find out everything you should know about CBD when you consider using it!

CBD explained

First things first, let’s dive a little deeper into what CBD is and what potential health benefits it has. 

CBD is one of the most prevalent compounds found in the hemp and marijuana plants. It is the cousin of THC, another compound found in these plants, but the two impact the body differently. 

Now, CBD is a psychoactive compound, but it doesn’t have intoxicating effects as THC has. In contrast, CBD is believed to influence the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system in the body. 

Given the plethora of research around CBD, several medical studies have discovered plenty of potential health benefits of this chemical. More precisely, there is scientific evidence supporting the idea that CBD can help with

  • Pain management
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Insomnia
  • Neurodegenerative conditions
  • Heart health problems
  • Acne 
  • Cancer-related symptoms
  • Substance abuse 
  • Diabetes prevention 

It’s legal

Given all the research about CBD and its potential health benefits and how it impacts the body, CBD is a legal substance in most parts of the world. In the US, CBD became legal to use and sell after the 2018 hemp farm bill, which legalized the cultivation of hemp all across the US. since then, all hemp-derived CBD products have become legal, as long as they contain less than 0,3% THC. 

So, if you’re planning to use CBD, know that those products derived from hemp are perfectly legal. What’s more, if you live in a state where cannabis recreational and/ or medicinal use is legal, cannabis-derived CBD products are also legal. 

It won’t get you “high”

Probably one of the most popular questions among people who are just hearing about CBD is whether or not it gets them high. Well, this is a common misconception resulting from the fact that people associate it with the cannabis plant, which is known for its intoxicating effects. 

However, the truth is that CBD won’t get you “high.” The compound from the marijuana plant that has such effects is THC, CBD’s cousin. Although CBD is a psychoactive substance because it does interact with certain receptors from the brain, it doesn’t have the ability to induce euphoria, and short-term memory loss like THC does. 

So, no, CBD won’t get you “high.” 

There are many ways in which you can use CBD

One essential thing you should know about using CBD is that there are plenty of CBD products available on the market. More precisely, CBD can be added to various products that suit different medical conditions and personal preferences better. 

CBD can come in products like: 

  • Edibles and beverages (snack bars, gummies, brownies, chocolate, coffee, milkshakes, tea, smoothies)
  • Tinctures
  • Oil
  • Pills and capsules
  • Topicals 

As the experts from Organic CBD Nugs explain, “Each type of product works best on specific medical conditions. For example, for pain management, topicals may be a better choice because they allow you to apply CBD directly on the area that hurts. But, the type of product you choose should also suit your personal preferences. For example, if you don’t like the herbal-earthy taste of CBD, you may not like to use CBD oil or tincture. Instead, you can use capsules or edibles.”

It may not do anything to you

If you’ve run a Google search on CBD, you’ve likely found a few articles about how CBD doesn’t do anything. Or, maybe you’ve heard that from one of your friends who has tried it but didn’t feel anything different. 

Well, the truth is that CBD may not do anything for you either. And, there are several reasons for that, including: 

  • You don’t have a medical condition that CBD can improve to notice the difference. 
  • You’re taking the wrong dose of CBD.
  • You’re using poor-quality CBD products. 
  • You’re not giving it enough time. 
  • It simply doesn’t work for you. (Yes, it can happen for CBD to not work on certain people)

Talk to a specialist for the correct dosage

Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to the correct dosage of CBD. That’s because the proper dosage depends on your medical condition, body weight, and specific body characteristics. Research also suggests that different people can respond differently to various dosages of CBD, so the amount right for you might vary. 

That being said, it is always best to talk to a medical specialist about the proper dosage. Communicate your medical condition and the goals you want to achieve to your doctor and ask for a recommendation of dosage. 

If, however, you want to start taking CBD without talking to a medical specialist first, better start with the smallest possible dose and increase gradually until you obtain the results you were hoping for. 

There can be some side effects

CBD usage is generally considered safe. Various studies have found that the compound is well-tolerated and safe. However, it can cause some adverse reactions in some people. 

Some side effects reported by CBD users include: 

  • Diarrhea
  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in weight 
  • Fatigue

Keep in mind that CBD may interact with certain medications, causing such side effects. So, it is always wise to first discuss with a medical specialist before using CBD. Ask your doctor whether or not it is safe for you to use CBD for your medical condition.

What is Industrial Hemp and What is it Used For?

Published

on

One of the first known instances of humans using hemp dates back to over 10,000 years ago, when it was used in China to make fabrics, paper, and other textiles like rope. The widely used hemp for industrial and medicinal purposes was banned in the U.S. in 1937. In 2018 the Farm Bill opened hemp’s massive potential again, and it is only now regaining traction in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world as research is beginning to reveal the many benefits of hemp.

Industrial hemp is quite a common crop in the U.S. since it looks like marijuana, but the two are different plants, though they are both members of the cannabis family. Hemp is grown mainly for its seeds and fibers. Hemp fibers can be used to make ropes and fabrics, while its seeds can be pressed to produce oil. As with any product, the quality of the end product always starts from the source. In order to get the best yields and the best end products, a grower should utilize high-quality industrial hemp seeds

1. What is Industrial Hemp?

Industrial hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species explicitly grown for non-drug or psychoactive purposes. It is a tall, leafy plant that can be used for various applications. In this blog post, you will get more information about industrial hemp and its uses around the world.

2. What is Industrial Hemp Used For?

  • Hemp is used as a biofuel: As fuel prices soar with the recent sanctions on Russia, fuel sources are exhausted in much of the world, causing the supply to decrease and the demand to increase. Use cases for more sustainable alternative fuels are on the rise. With that being said, hemp can be converted to ethanol through a process called cellulolysis, where the cellulose is converted to sugars that can be fermented and distilled into fuel.
  • Hemp is used as a food source: Hemp can be incorporated into the diet in a few ways. It can be added to oatmeal or yogurt, sprinkled over fresh salads, and cold-pressed into oil that can also be used to garnish a salad. It can also be added to baked goods such as bread and muffins.
  • Hemp is used in medical treatments: Hemp is often used in the medical field to help with ailments like arthritis, asthma, warts, as well as many other medical conditions.
  • Hemp is used to make clothing: Hemp has been used for hundreds of years as its fibers are strong and durable. Hemp has four times the strength of cotton, resists bacterial growth, and prevents bodily odors. It is also known to protect your skin from UV rays naturally. 

Conclusion 

Industrial Hemp is a versatile crop that can be used in a multitude of ways, ranging from the manufacturing of food products and clothing to the production of biofuels. Most people have seen or heard of hemp in the context of its legalization in the U.S. and the highly-publicized health benefits of phytocannabinoids like CBD. But hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant, which also contains marijuana. As a result, many people are confused about the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana and why the legalization of the former has led to renewed interest in the latter. We hope this blog post has given you a better understanding of industrial hemp.

Cigarettes Are Bad For You; Now There Is A Viable Alternative

Published

on

Putting out a cigarette can help you live longer. Studies show that the more cigarettes you smoke in your lifetime, the more likely you will develop heart disease, which is currently the leading cause of death. The good news is when smoking rates decreased in the U.S., so did heart disease rates. Whether you have struggled with the addictive nature of cigarettes in the past or know someone who has, it can take a stranglehold on the life of the user. That is because nicotine is present in it, which is a highly addictive compound that keeps users coming back over and over again. This is a dangerous habit with very serious consequences. 

Here are a handful of facts on just how dangerous smoking cigarettes are:

  • Cigarettes have killed over 100 million people worldwide.
  • Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor that contributes to lung cancer, and lung cancer is responsible for more deaths than any other type of cancer.
  • Smoking cigarettes makes you more vulnerable to getting diabetes, which is devastating for people of all ages. Cigarette smokers are about 30% to 40% more likely to develop diabetes than non-smokers.
  • Because smoking narrows your arteries, it can trigger stroke. A stroke happens when the blood supply to your brain is temporarily blocked. Brain cells are deprived of oxygen and start to die. A stroke can cause paralysis, slurred speech, altered brain function, and death. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and a significant factor contributing to adult disability.
  • Smoking harms nearly every organ in your body, even your heart. Smoking can cause adverse effects on your cardiovascular system, including impaired circulation and increased blood pressure. 

There have been several products out on the market that range from slow-release nicotine patches all the way to hypnotism. Some of them work well, while others are simply fads with very little science-backed evidence of effectiveness. 

Now there is a product in the market with potential, and that is KHOOR. KHOOR Cigarettes are a Safe and Natural way to help you get rid of your Tobacco Cigarette Cravings. To maintain compliance with Federal and State regulatory requirements, these e-liquids are free of nicotine, tobacco derivatives, oils, and/or any other chemicals.

Conclusion

Suppose tobacco consumption rates continue to decrease at the rate they’ve been declining in recent years. In that case, the U.S. will see a concurrent reduction in the number of people developing coronary heart disease! While heart disease is still the leading cause of death among Americans, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t celebrate every small step toward progress to make our nation healthier! Part of making this happen is exploring and supporting alternative cigarette companies and what they have to offer.

Have you tried to kick the tobacco smoking habit in the past? What were the methods or tactics you have tried and were they effective? We would love to hear from you on our social media accounts!

Hot New Products: Private Label CBD Gummies

20 CBD Gummies for Sleep

Private Label CBD Gummies Are Quickly Becoming One Of The Hottest Products On The Market In Years.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to catch a wave before it starts? One of the most up-and-coming industries with established roots is a subset of the private label supplement industry. CBD gummies have caught on as the wave of CBD-infused products increases by the day. With studies showing that millennials prefer the ease of a gummy for their health supplementation as compared to the pills of previous generations, it’s no wonder the expected hold from the gummy space has been unprecedented with no release in sight.

The reality remains that our bodies need vitamins, minerals and nutrients to not only survive but to thrive in a culture that demands every iota of energy for the increasing demand in the workplace. And adding CBD to your favorite gummy only increases the daily value.

Gummies Are Here To Stay
Gummies are here to stay and the reason for that is simple: making your medicine taste good is the only way to go. So if you’re given the option to be able to have a healthy, reliable, and better-tasting product wouldn’t you take it? One CBD gummy manufacturer stands out from the rest with its vision for servicing the rising wave. VitaPur Labs, a US-based gummy manufacturer believes gummies are here to stay, and for good reason. Back in the early stages of the private label CBD craze, gummies were merely sprayed with CBD isolates and oils. Now with the industry gaining steam, companies like VitaPur Labs are infusing these gummies with a whole slew of active ingredients to complement the added CBD. Multi-vitamins gummies, probiotic gummies, and keto gummies are just a few of the forward-leaning formulas VitaPur is infusing now with CBD. Offering multiple options for their clients to provide a smooth runway on the path to success, VitaPur offers custom and private label CBD gummies that set the standard for industry quality. With an industry-leading team, it’s no wonder VitaPur has been optimally positioned for long-term success and is an experienced resource.

Taking CBD Gummies To Get Your Nutrients

Dr. Sarah Brewer, had this to share from her vantage point as an industry resource as Medical Director of Healthspan, “For your gummy to be worthwhile, look for as wide a range of vitamins and minerals.” Gummies are a great way to get your micronutrients because only tiny amounts are needed to get your daily dose and adding CBD to these gummies works as a great complementary ingredient. Nutrients such as biotin, folic acid, and vitamin D can be present in gummies at levels of 100 percent of the EU NRV (nutrient reference value). With this in mind, VitaPur continues to offer valuable insight into the well-being of its clients by mixing these nutrients with a multitude of various cannabinoids. It’s no question there is a health crisis in our country, and making our multivitamin mixed with CBD just might be a step in the right direction.
