What You Need to Know About How CBD Works
There is no shortage of claims out there on what CBD can do for you. And while CBD is pretty amazing, some of these claims are either unverified (meaning more research needs to be done) or flat out false. That’s why I want to provide you with compliant but helpful information on CBD so that you can understand what it can actually do in order to be more comfortable using and sharing it.
How Exactly Does CBD Work?
While I am extremely passionate about CBD, I also have to realize I don’t know everything about it. That’s why I surround myself with experts who can help us all understand the unique qualities of CBD. One of these experts is Dr. Tyler Call.
According to Dr. Call, “the exact mechanisms of how CBD works in the body are still being investigated. We know there are CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body which are likely involved, and we know the human body has an endocannabinoid system. Other studies indicate that inhibition of adenosine, activity at the 5-HT1a receptor, glycine receptors and GPR55 receptors may be involved (World Health Organization 2018 CBD Critical Report Review).”
Basically, CBD may interact with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This may lead to a state of homeostasis. Our bodies have a tendency to become unbalanced, whether it be from internal or external forces. Getting that balance back is homeostasis.
How Much CBD Should You Use?
After understanding how it works within your body, the next question is how much should you use? And all I can say is, it depends. Each of us are different so the amount you use depends on your body. The important thing is to listen to your body and see what works for you. I do recommend starting small and working your way up, though.
No matter what strength CBD you use, I suggest following the instructions on the label. For Nature’s Ultra’s CBD oils, use one full dropper—that’s one milliliter of oil—and apply it to the desired area. For the Muscle Rub and our Roll-Ons, apply them generously as desired. Remember, it’s okay to start out with just a little bit and increase the amount as you get familiar with how your body responds to the products.
Are There Side Effects When Using CBD?
According to the World Health Organization’s critical review on cannabidiol, “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. That said, each person is different so people may respond differently to CBD.
What’s great about Nature’s Ultra CBD is that it has no THC, so it won’t get you high, and it’s been thoroughly tested and meet’s Young Living’s Seed to Seal standard. That way you can rest assured know that Nature’s Ultra CBD is safe and effective.
I understand that I am partial to CBD, but I wouldn’t be if it didn’t have such a tremendous impact on my life. I hope by understanding a little more about how it works, you’ll give it a try.

Just because something is certified, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s perfect. Some organizations are willing to cut corners, but I’m not. I encourage anyone interested in CBD to do their research so they can feel comfortable using a truly quality product.Read More
