When you’re new to cannabinol, there are a few CBD effects to look out for.
- What is it supposed to feel like?
- What’s it supposed to do?
- How long will it last?
All common and reasonable questions.
However, their answers depend on you.
Your body chemistry is unique to you, just like your metabolism. The way they work together will influence the CBD effects you experience. So will the delivery method and the overall quality of the CBD product you choose.
Another big influencer on the CBD effects you feel interacts with your lifestyle are the goals you have in mind. What are you hoping to accomplish with CBD? Once you know that, you’ll be closer to finding the perfect application for your needs.
Here are some effects to look out for on the journey:
Are you someone who moves around a lot? Maybe you’re an athlete or someone who’s working a job where you’ve got to bend and lift.
Are you someone who doesn’t move much? Maybe you ventured outside for the first time in a while and are feeling a little sore.
In either case, you know what it’s like to feel sore, and how that soreness can make it even more difficult to move the next day. Momentum is important with any endeavor, and one way to maintain it is to keep your muscles loose and your joints in good working order.
If this is on your list of desires, CBD topicals are where it’s at. When you’re in your selection process, look for a blend of botanical ingredients along with high-quality cannabinoids.
We crafted our Muscle & Joint Cream with menthol and white willow bark, which has been used for centuries as a natural method of soothing aches and pains. Salicin is the active ingredient, but the body converts it into salicylic acid. This formula acts to lower levels of certain compounds that contribute to aches, pains, and inflammation.
There’s a reason why so many professional athletes have integrated various CBD effects into their lifestyles and workout regimens.
If you’ve ever spent a night tossing and turning, you already know how you’ll feel the next day: tired, cranky, and out of sorts. But missing out on the recommended 7 to 9 hours of shut-eye does more than make you feel groggy and grumpy.
The long-term effects of sleep deprivation are very real.
It drains your mental abilities and puts your physical health at real risk. Science has linked poor slumber with a number of health problems, from weight gain to a weakened immune system.
Inversely, what we gain from sleeping well is improved immune function, enhanced glucose metabolism, and better brain function in the areas of cognition, concentration, productivity, and performance.
CBD alone has the power to relax us, removing tension and allowing us to melt into that pillow naturally. It’s especially effective when combined with the awesome powers of melatonin.
This is a compound our brains naturally produce (along with cannabinoids). Melatonin’s main job in the body is to regulate night and day cycles or sleep-wake cycles. Darkness causes the body to produce more melatonin, which signals the body to prepare for sleep.
Together, CBD and melatonin are really good at enabling you to drift off to sleep more smoothly and stay there longer.
The real question becomes: what are you going to do with all this extra energy?
The ability to think clearly is one of the most useful tools a human can have, especially in an ever-changing modern world. We’re presented with what feels like a million decisions a day and this can cause a ton of anxiety, and as a result, mental resistance.
If you’re a human on this earth, you know what it’s like to feel resistance—when there’s something you want and something in you that stops you from getting it. In some cases that’s helpful. We can’t just go around taking things.
But in creative endeavors, resistance is rather insidious. If we can boil down creativity to its simplest form, which Steve Jobs defined as “just connecting things”, it’s about making really clear choices.
Now, why you make choices is and will likely always be up for debate. How you make them is directly influenced by the quality of attention you’re able to devote to a solution.
It’s why every article you read on the subject of productivity is likely to feature, at least once, the suggestion to put away your phone when you’re working.
The mind is naturally full of pings and notifications as it is, and CBD affects them by enhancing your ability to choose which to dedicate your attention to.
Producing Deeper Work
So, what’s the benefit of enhanced focus? Cal Newton coined the phrase “Deep Work” in 2016, defining it as the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task.
It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Frankly, the less anxiety you have, the less time it actually takes to get done what you actually need to get done on a given day.
We recommend a broad-spectrum CBD, if this is your top priority. This sort of extract differs from a full-spectrum oil in that, once derived, it goes through an extra step to remove all traces of THC.
Hemp naturally contains .03% or less of the component that gives marijuana its psychoactive reputation. While this is obviously very low, it can still act on the body’s endocannabinoid system.
We use a proprietary broad-spectrum blend in our gummies, along with anti-inflammatories like turmeric and vitamins including A, B6, and E to boost your immune system, plus biotin and pantothenic acid to rev your metabolism.
Together, these ingredients are a fantastic addition to the work-from-home routine that has become commonplace for so many, not only in what it allows you to do while you’re getting down to business but in the time it frees up in your schedule for other things.
Have you been wanting to start that novel? Maybe learning a second or third language has been sounding good lately. What about those paints hiding under the bed?
Wherever you’d like to allocate your energy most, integrating CBD into your lifestyle can be a huge asset in making these all-important determinations. The world isn’t going anywhere, we promise.
Progress in Wellbeing
To understand CBD effects is to understand the power of collaboration. When you purchase from a reliable brand, you get a product that is crafted with quality oil. This oil is derived from organic hemp, rich in terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids.
Each of these elements has a role to play in the entourage effect, that beautiful thing that happens when each ingredient becomes stronger because of the ingredients next to it. Our traits are similar.
When we’re able to see them at their best, all working together, we’re able to move through the day with more agency, and that’s a beautiful thing.
