CBD 101: The Basics and Benefits

Welcome to our Wellness Wanderings, where we help Navigate you to Vitality!

This blog is for CBD - where nature's goodness meets modern wellness. If you've heard whispers about CBD but find yourself in a bit of a haze about what it truly is, fear not! We're here to break it down in the friendliest way possible.

CBD Demystified

What is CBD? CBD, short for CannaBiDiol, is a natural compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Unlike its well-known cousin THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD won't get you high. It's the yin to THC's yang, offering a range of potential health benefits without the mind-altering effects.

How Does CBD Work? Inside you that already exists is an incredible system called the "Endo-Cannabinoid System" (ECS). CBD interacts with this system, helping to promote balance and harmony in the body. It's like a friendly whisper to your ECS, encouraging it to do its natural dance of maintaining equilibrium.


Unveiling the Benefits

1. Stress Buster: CBD has been the hero for many in the quest to manage stress. Its soothing properties may help take the edge off a hectic day, letting you navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. A 2015 study carried out by the University of Sydney indicated that CBD was effective in significantly reducing stress, and was non-inferior to pharmaceutical comparators!

2. Sleep Support: Say hello to your new bedtime buddy! The large scale 2019 University of Colorado study showed that CBD may contribute to better sleep by calming the mind and promoting a sense of relaxation. Sweet dreams, anyone?

3. Pain Relief Pal: For those achy joints or sore muscles, CBD might be the support you've been seeking. Klinikum Saarbrücken, Germany, along with the University of Michigan's study (2022) show promise in CBD's potential to provide much-needed pain relief from Rheumatic Diseases (Musculoskeletal Pain).

4. Mind Wellness: CBD could be your ally in the pursuit of mental well-being. There are over 66 studies available on the National Library of Medicine alone, that confirm the potential for CBD being used as an effective anti-anxiety option.

How to Dive In

Choosing Your CBD: CBD comes in various forms, from oils and capsules to gummies, topicals (and even tea!). Finding the right one for you is a bit like choosing your favorite flavor of ice cream—personal and delightful.

From our product range, we offer the flexibility to choose what's best for you. Our Oil droplets provide the traditional CBD experience best for nighttime. The Mixed-Fruit Flavor Gummies bring a fun and easily available way to take accurate amounts of CBD, and the Softgel Capsules are great to taken on the morning, preparing you for your full day out(or in!) 

Starting Slow: As with any wellness journey, it's wise to start slow. Begin with a lower dose, such as 10-20mg. Gradually adjust until you find your sweet spot. While we would recommend you do not exceed the FSA recommended dosage of 70mg per day, it's all about finding what feels right for you.

Quality Matters: Not all CBD is created equal. Our high-quality, third-party tested CBD product range has been certified by the GMP to ensure you're getting the pure goodness you deserve.
