Since the passage of the Hemp Farming Act in 2018 there has been such a flood of cannabidiol (CBD) products that it’s easy to get overwhelmed by this burgeoning market. So, where to start with CBD?
CBD can be ingested, smoked as flower, or applied topically; it all depends on what your needs are and discovering an intake method that works best for you.
CBD is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid of the cannabis plant with enormous healing potential. As shown below, CBD and THC have practically the same molecular structures, though their bondings are different.
CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body's endocannabinoid system and alters the release of neurotransmitters in the brain.
As such, CBD is an effective medication for grave seizure disorders that do not respond to anti-epileptics; the research on this opened the doors for many other ailments to be research and treated with CBD: inflammation, depression, migraines, and nausea, to name a few.
Terpenes are another major component cannabis and, to be fair, of all plants; most recognizably, they give plants their scents. In cannabis, there are over 100 types of terpenes, which work with CBD to produce an "entourage effect" of therapeutic interactions.
If you suffer from anxiety, Vitality Hemp Oil is the tincture for you. We started with full-spectrum hemp oil and added the terpene limonene to combat anxiety and inflammation; Vitality will have you ready for whatever your days throw at you. Also helpful for anxiety are any number of strains of flower CBD.
If you’re prone to insomnia, Tranquility Hemp Oil is what you need. Just one dropper full and you’ll be enjoying a restful night’s sleep. With a strong beta myrcrene terpene profile, Tranquility is unparalleled for those looking for a natural way to beat sleeplessness.
Research shows that chronic pain from joints and muscles can be alleviated with the use of topical CBD, such as Kanna Cooling Gel. Another great product that treats pain as well as insomnia is Viva Green Salve; rub on where it aches for pain, or rub some behind the ears and at pressure points for sleep-inducing relaxation.
And there’s always edibles. It's a tasty treat for your mind and body and perfect for those who are opposed to smoke or those who don't like the taste of CBD oil. When ingesting hemp CBD products, it prolongs the effects. However, it is slightly less efficient than tincture because when digested, as some of the cannabinoids and terpenes are lost in digestion.
Featuring quality-tested and customer approved products, KANNA CBD is here for your needs.
