The Safety and Benefits of CBD
By now you’ve probably heard of CBD and if you haven’t, you’ve come to the right place. Every day, CBD is increasing in popularity and availability. So, what does that mean to you? Well, any savvy consumer wanting to purchase CBD for the first time will want to know about the safety and benefits, right?
I’ll touch on the safety as well as some of the benefits of CBD in order to make the decision to try CBD a little easier.
CBD Safety Concerns
A big question I get is if CBD is safe. As someone that has been using it for a while, I can tell you that I’ve personally had no issues. But you don’t have to take my word for it. The World Health Organization’s review of CBD noted it as well-tolerated with a good safety profile.
That said, there are other things to consider when purchasing CBD. The first is the quality of CBD. You can get CBD just about anywhere these days, even certain gas stations. However, if you choose just any CBD product, you may be putting yourself at risk. If you use a low-quality CBD oil that’s less than transparent about where its CBD is sourced, its testing practices, and what other ingredients it contains, you may experience unwanted side effects because it could be contaminated.
Another thing to consider is the hemp the CBD comes from. Since hemp tends to pull contaminants and toxins from the soil, you’ll want a company that tests for those things before bottling it and putting it on the shelf. Nature’s Ultra tests all products and you can view our quality reports online.
Now let’s talk about benefits. Without getting into too much detail, let’s break down what CBD is. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the primary cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Cannabinoids interact with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors. Endocannabinoid System receptors are found throughout your body, and the whole goal of the ECS is to promote homeostasis.
What is homeostasis? Put simply, it’s your body striving to maintain a constant internal environment. By using CBD on a daily basis, it may help with promoting that state of homeostasis. That’s all the more reason to be consistent when you use CBD.
