It’s 2019 – and CBD seems to be everywhere now. Is it right for you?

Whether people are using it for sleep, anxiety or a number of other issues, a common question we get is: “Is CBD safe for me?” The FDA has ensured that CBD is safe, but read on to learn more about how CBD works and how it could help you.

How CBD Works

As humans, it’s in our nature to try and fix problems. Whether it’s dry skin or allergies, we tend to seek out solutions. Today many people are turning to CBD to try and solve issues without medications. Surely you’ve encountered a friend, coworker or family member that has a CBD success story. So why not try it out yourself? First, understanding the CBD effects on our body can help you determine the next step.

It all starts with hemp, an important part of the cannabis family. Hemp contains phytocannabinoids, which work alongside our endocannabinoid system. This system helps to support homeostasis – our internal equilibrium and overall health. Quality CBD helps to support our endocannabinoid system.

What are the Benefits of CBD?

Much has been learned about CBD and its uses, but let’s take a closer look at the benefits:

  1. Stay focused and calm Just like we attend a yoga class or meditation to try and restore a sense of calm, balance and focus, CBD oil has the potential to do the same. The difference is, when you’re in the midst of chaos at work or are dealing with personal anxieties, CBD oil can be taken on the spot vs. waiting to get to a class.
  2. Reduce your stress level No matter who you are, if you’re alive, you’re stressed, as Ellen Degeneres once said. One way to combat stress is by implementing a CBD oil habit first thing in the morning or at bedtime. CBD oil can help support management of everyday stresses naturally.
  3. Get good sleep The amount of good sleep we achieve each night makes a difference in our mood, performance at work and habits. CBD oil can help you sleep soundly and awaken reenergized.

Is CBD oil safe?

CBD oil is safe, and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has created guidelines for producing, labeling and selling CBD oil. However, many CBD labels may claim to have a certain percentage of CBD or hemp, but sometimes fall short of their efficacy.
