Anyone who has ever had to live with depression and anxiety, has to constantly deal with days where they feel like their whole body is aching and they feel too blue to function. People who deal with these conditions on a daily basis each have their own methods to deal. Some binge eat, others stay in bed all day, while still others take the medication route.
Personally, as someone who has struggled with depression for years, I have never had as much success as I have had with natural products. One of my favourite go to products for pain relief are CBD gummies.
If you haven’t ever used Cannabidiol edible (CBD) products before, you’re in the right place.
What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant that is fast becoming a popular supplement. While it is derived from Cannabis, CBD gives all the benefits of Cannabis without the psychotropic “high” that you get from THC.
How exactly can you consume CBD?
To get the general health and wellbeing benefits of CBD, there are many options for CBD edibles. In addition to puffing it through a vapour pen or taking it in capsule form. If you’re looking for other options, CBD gummy bears are a brilliant option. CBD in vaporizer form is not always the best option as there are places where pulling out your pen vape is not advisable or even allowed. Gummies are super convenient and can be used anywhere and anytime you need them like long haul flights, at work, or in company.
How do CBD edibles fare in tackling pain?
I have been using CBD Gummies for pain relief for some time now. Not only are these tasty treats simply yum, they provide longer lasting relief when compared to simply smoking cannabis or using a CBD vapour pen. This is because in any CBD edible, the CBD is released slowly as food is digested resulting in a long lasting CBD experience. When ingested, the Cannabidiol interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in our body and causes many positive effects like reducing anxiety, stress, and pain. It can also help with mood swings, insomnia and epilepsy.
What different varieties of CBD Gummies are there?
CBD gummies are available in three different varieties. The first are Full Spectrum CBD Gummies that are made from hemp extract from the entire plant. These include other compounds in addition to CBD like THC. However the amount of THC is not enough to get you high. The second variety are the Broad Spectrum CBD Gummies. They’re made from oil from the hemp plant and have no THC. The final variety is the CBD Isolate Gummies. These are my favourite as they contain just CBD, no THC or any other cannabinoids.
However, just like any other product, anything that you use for health reasons, do seek out professional guidance before you start using CBD products. There are some cases where CBD edibles may interact differently with other substances, so always consult your doctor, especially if you are on other medication.
