With the popularity of CBD oil products increasing, you may have heard all about it and would like to try it to see the benefits for yourself. In this blog post we will be discussing popular CBD oil products and why they are continuing to gain momentum in the health and wellness world.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD as its most commonly known as, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. It can be applied using various products or consumed in capsules, beverages or edibles, or through smoke inhalation, and there have been numerous scientific studies that have found it may ease symptoms of conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety.
How does it work?
When we consume or apply a CBD product, it interacts with our Endocannabinoid System, which is made up of millions of CB1 and CB2 receptor sites. CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your Endocannabinoid System, which sends signals between your cells to help regulate your mood, movement, homeostasis and your immune system.
4 of the best ways to use CBD oil
1. CBD Capsules
CBD capsules are a great option for those who don’t like the taste of CBD oil, and the capsules from Associated CBD ensure that you get the perfect amount of CBD in every dose. As the UK’s number 1 marketplace for CBD products, they have a huge offering of CBD capsules, which can improve your sleep, mood and brain health.
If you suffer with anxiety, the 1 Step CBD Capsules are ideal for reducing anxiety and offering a calming effect to help give a clearer mindset.
The capsules are completely safe to use, and you can mix them with other CBD products, providing that you don’t exceed the CBD UK recommended daily allowance of 70mg per day. The capsules are legal to use in the UK, and a wide range of CBD capsules on the website are vegan!
2. CBD Gummies
An alternative for CBD capsules are CBD gummies, which work the same way to take away the taste of CBD, without taking away any of the benefits of it. They come in an array of yummy flavours, including marshmallow, strawberry and cherry. They also come in different strengths, which makes it a lot easier to choose the right amount for you.
The benefits of using CBD gummies are lowered anxiety and better sleep, however it is important to note that CBD gummies can effect everyone differently. A great place to start is with Associated CBD’s 1 step CBD standard gummies, that come in a wide variety of flavours with all the benefits of CBD extracts.
3. CBD Vape
CBD vape pens are just like regular disposable vapes, however instead of containing nicotine, they contain CBD. They come in a variety of different flavours and strengths.
Whilst CBD gummies can take a while to digest and feel the effects of, CBD vapes work quickly to get CBD into your system, which makes them perfect for stressful situations where anxiety levels are high.
Contrary to popular belief, CBD vape pen’s in the UK will not get you ‘high’ as they contain less than 0.2% THC, and most CBD vape pens are now completely THC free.
4. CBD Skincare
A lot of product manufacturers suggest that CBD balms are best used when massaged into the skin. Associated CBD offers the best branded CBD creams and balms to help eczema, muscles, back pain and arthritis pain. This includes CBD pain relief cream, CBD muscle balms, CBD lip balms, CBD moisture cream, CBD face & hand cream, CBD muscle rub gel, CBD bath products and CBD bath bombs.
These products work really well as they mean the CBD gets absorbed through the skin, which means they can soothe the skin, as well as moisturise and protect your skin.
