how to get the most out of your cbd
No matter how convenient it would be, we all know going to the gym and eating a salad for one day isn’t enough to really get our bodies in shape.
It’s time we started to think about using CBD to support our health and wellness the same way.
Much like getting in shape, using CBD is a long-play game, and the results of it compound over time.
Why? Consistent supplementation of CBD actually maximizes its natural balancing properties by supporting the health of one very important bodily system -- the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short.
What's an ECS and why does our body have one? Think of the ECS as the body's primary regulatory system. Naturally, the body aims to be in a state of homeostasis, or balance between all internal systems. The ECS's job is to make sure the body has the necessary tools to regulate critical processes such as proper sleep/wake cycles, an active, but not overly active, immune response, maintenance of inflammation, and so much more.
understanding the science behind how cbd works in the body
Once you swallow a gel cap, or squeeze a dropper of our full spectrum tinctures under your tongue, CBD instantly starts making its way to your body's ECS. More specifically, it starts working its way to receptors known as cannabinoid receptors that are located all throughout the body.
These receptors are the most essential part of your ECS.
The reason the body has these cannabinoid receptors in the first place is actually that the body naturally produces cannabinoids of its own. These are called endogenous cannabinoids, and they're very similar to the types of cannabinoids that you get from a CBD product. Cannabinoids that come from a CBD product known as exogenous cannabinoids.
Now, it's important to remember that our bodies naturally produce these endogenous cannabinoids to interact with the receptors of our ECS as a way to keep our bodies in a state of complete internal balance.
Things like stress can easily throw that internal balance off-center, but it also diminishes the number of endogenous cannabinoids, our body is able to produce.
This is just one reason why it's so important to make sure we're consistently nurturing our ECS with an external source of cannabinoids, like the exogenous ones that come from a CBD product!
consistency really is key
With that said, when it comes to getting the most out of your CBD, it's easy to understand why consistency really is key.
In fact, through consistent use, you can even stimulate an increase in cannabinoid receptors. With more cannabinoid receptors, the ECS becomes more active and more sensitive to stimulation by cannabinoids.
So, if you just started using CBD, or have been using it off and on but are not quite feeling the effects you're looking for, don't worry! That's totally normal.
Our recommendation is simple. Just stick with it!.
our tips + tricks for consistent cbd use
It's easy for us to tell you to make your CBD use a habit, and we understand that it can be a bit harder to actually put that into practice.
If that rings true for you, in order for that daily dose of CBD to really become second nature, we would like to recommend a little something known as habit stacking.
Basically, habit stacking is a simple way of building new habits by taking advantage of your old ones.
For example, try pairing your tooth brushing with a CBD gel cap. Or your nighttime tea with a dropper of some kava kava and valerian!
Now do that for a month straight and we're sure you'll be on the road to feeling the most therapeutic value CBD has to offer.
If after those thirty days, you weren't quite feeling the results you were looking for, we have your back.
While we wholeheartedly stand behind all of our products, we understand that every body is unique, and some just may not be satisfied, even after using CBD consistently. If that's the case for you, rest easy knowing that all of our products are now backed with a satisfaction guarantee.
Use our product for 30 days and if your needs have not been met for any reason, reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll issue you a refund as soon as possible.
Just remember, good things take time.
