Tips on Using CBD

With so many products on the market, it can be hard to know where to begin when it comes to CBD. Here are a few helpful tips for getting started:

  1. Consult your doctor. The most important thing to keep in mind is to always consult your doctor or healthcare provider when it comes to introducing new supplements or products into your daily regimen. Keeping your doctor well informed will also help determine the best course of action to deal with various health concerns and can help predict any potential interactions with drugs you may be taking.

  2. Find your right product and dosage. It’s important to remember that everyone’s experience with CBD will be different. Some people may experience benefits from small dosages whereas you might need to take more to feel the desired effects. Different products such as sublingual tinctures, gummies, and topical oils all have different ways of being absorbed by the body. Topical applications are great for localized relief of sore muscles and joints whereas capsules go through the digestive system to be ultimately metabolized in the liver. Holding a CBD tincture under your tongue for a minute or two will allow for quicker absorption through mucous membranes under your tongue which allows CBD to bypass the digestive system and be metabolized faster. Knowing what you want to get out of your experience with CBD will help you greatly in determining which product is best for you.

  3. Use CBD to supplement, not replace. Like we mentioned before, CBD is not a drug. If your healthcare provider has prescribed medications or treatments, it’s never a good idea to change your routine without first consulting them. Which brings us back to our first tip: talk to your doctor! Ask them how you can start introducing CBD to your healthcare routine safely and effectively.

  4. Do your research. Since there are so many products are on the market, it’s important to find reputable companies that offer third party COAs on their product. These will show that the product contains the amount of CBD they’re claiming and that it also does not contain any detectable THC.

Managing Your Stress

April is National Stress Awareness Month. Stress is unfortunately an unavoidable part of life, so it’s essential to have an effective stress management plan to help recognize stressors and deal with resulting stress. There is no one-size fits all approach to managing stress, so it’s especially important to have a variety of tools at your disposal. Here are some different approaches to managing stress:

  • Eat healthy, get enough sleep, and exercise - Your body can deal with stress much better when it is healthy and properly fueled with the necessary nutrients it needs.

  • Breathing exercises - Take a step back from a stressful situation and take some deep breathes. Inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth can help you visualize physically releasing the thing that is causing you stress.

  • Learn to say no - Your time is yours. Don’t feel the need to provide a reason for not doing anything, a simple no is more than sufficient. If you need a day to yourself, take it!

  • Talk to someone - Social support can be extremely beneficial at dealing with stress. Maybe all it takes is talking to a friend or family member, or maybe you make an appointment with a therapist. Simply vocalizing the issue can often provide a degree of relief.

The most important thing is that you have multiple ways of dealing with stress in your life. To provide an added boost to managing your stress, try Kanna Affects Stress or Bud’s Bounty CBD capsules. These can provide support to your body during times of stress and also support you on your journey of healthy living.

CBD is becoming more and more popular for a variety of reasons. Did you know that unlike THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid that contributes to the "high" feeling of consuming marijuna), CBD won't get you high? This make it a great alternative to people looking for the health benefits of marijuana, while wanting to avoid the mind-altering effects.
