5 Surprising Uses for CBD to Try Right Now


Paaez Coleman


One of the most fascinating aspects of life is our ability to acquire knowledge throughout our lifetimes. There’s always something new to learn, whether from a friend, teacher, book, or the internet.

Well, the same goes for CBD. We’ve seen how potent these compounds are and learned a great deal about how they work within our bodies. Even though we’ve come so far and learned so much about CBD, there’s still so much to learn! 

That’s why we take every aspect of our process seriously––CBD education is no exception! We know it’s helpful for you to receive the latest CBD information as it becomes available. That’s why we make sure to keep you up to date with all the CBD happenings through this blog––a baseline of knowledge that keeps us all on the same page!

Here are five surprising uses for CBD that you’d never think of…

CBD Counteracts The Effects Of THC

We all know by now that CBD is one of many compounds that the hemp plant produces. Like many other compounds found in the plant, it is non-psychoactive and provides a wide range of therapeutic benefits. On the other hand, there’s THC, and while it still boasts its own specific set of benefits, they do have one stark difference––THC is psychoactive. 

Although there are still studies being conducted to fully understand CBD and THC’s relationship and effects, other studies have shown that CBD can counteract those unwanted effects of THC that people experience from time to time. 

These unwanted effects can present themselves as paranoia or general feelings of discomfort and unease. If you happen to run across this issue in the future, take a little CBD, you’ll see that things will smooth right on out!

Your Furry Friend Will Love It

Think about it, sometimes you get the urge to switch up your routine, and if you really think about it, our pets most likely want to do the same thing! For instance, have you noticed that after so much time with the same food or the same toy, they tire of it, and hit you with those big, round puppy eyes? They’re trying to tell you they need a change––and CBD can be one of those changes you introduce!

Did you know that your pet has an endocannabinoid system just like you? That means CBD will be just as useful for them. If you live in a noisy area or have kids that generally torture the family pet, give them a much-needed break with some pet CBD. 

You’ll look over one day and see Gizmo being pushed around in the Barbie stroller, but he won’t seem to have a care in the world!

If you decide to make that change for your furry BFF, make sure you research the company. Do they utilize all-natural, organic ingredients? Are their products well-received by consumers and you can see that with positive reviews? And, most importantly, do you have easy access to third-party lab results that confirm that the product doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals, pesticides, mycotoxins, etc? If they meet all those requirements, they seem like a reputable company! 

A Natural Approach To Skincare

It seems like we’re always looking for the next big thing in skincare (or anything for that matter), and CBD skincare is that next big thing! You’ve got everything from serums, cleansers, CBD face masks, and everything else in between! There’s literally something for everyone.

Companies in the ever-emerging CBD market have taken into account how fast product demand is growing. In fact, the market is expected to hit 1.7 billion by 2025!  This number actually plays a huge role in the expansion of product line-ups––companies want to make sure they are supplying something for a full range of demographics. 

If you decide to take advantage of CBD skincare, you’ll need to make yourself aware of the different types of oils available in these products. There are products made with full-spectrum oil, broad-spectrum oil, or CBD isolate.

The full-spectrum oils contain all the naturally occurring compounds, but in the broad-spectrum oil, trace amounts of THC have been removed. No matter which oil your product contains, you’ll see how nourishing it is and how your skin will adopt a glow you’ve never seen before!

Something to always keep in mind, but especially when it comes to skincare, is third-party lab results. These labs will confirm the purity, potency, and overall quality of the product you’re looking to filter into your regimen. 

Uncomfortable Shoes Are A Thing Of The Past

No matter if you’re a man or a woman, chances are you’ve experienced a really uncomfortable pair of shoes before. No big deal right, everyone deals with that from time to time, but what if you had a trick up your sleeve to avoid it? 

Well, guess what––you do! You can rub a little CBD lotion or balm on your feet before sliding them into your shoes and stroll around the town in comfort and ease. Bet you didn’t know that some of your favorite actors in Hollywood use this little trick, especially for the red carpet events. 

A New And Improved Workout Partner

It’s hard to find a workout partner. Some of the reasons could be that maybe you don’t have like-minded friends, or perhaps they start off “like-minded” but fall off soon after. It’s no big deal anymore because CBD makes the perfect workout partner!

You and your partner will hit the gym running, ready to conquer all of those complex machines. You won’t even care who sees that you’re using the machine wrong! All that matters is that you’re pumped, moving around, and working up a sweat! 

CBD is such a great thing to introduce into your pre and/or post-workout routine for various reasons––are you ready to find out why?
