CBD oil or hemp oil is loaded with nutritional benefits like fatty acids that are important for our body but cannot be produced naturally. Therefore, they need to be ingested through our diet. Unfortunately, given our general lifestyle, this need is often overlooked.
CBD or Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that is organically present in agricultural hemp and is well known for its benefits to human and animal health and wellbeing. CBD is not psychoactive, so users will not get the ‘high’ generally associated with marijuana use.
Why Use CBD Oil?
People use CBD oil for a number of different reasons. It can be about improving their lifestyle, following a regimen of health supplements, or trying a natural alternative to remedy an existing medical condition. Most users that first turn to CBD are happily surprised by the wealth of benefits to be had from CBD and CBD-based products.
Regular CBD users usually observe a difference in about a week of consistent use. Some users especially feel the difference in case they take a 1-2 week break from their regular CBD dose. In most cases, a specific event may lead to the return of stress or a panic attack. The relief provided by CBD can then be felt almost instantly after taking a normal dose of their preferred CBD product.
The Different Ways You Can CBD Oil
Happily, CBD oil can be taken in several different ways. Users have a range of options to find the one that works best for them. CBD oil is available as sprays, drops, capsules, or applicators that are especially handy for frequent travelers. Here is why each of them has its own set of benefits –
- Sprays – This can be used directly by spraying into the mouth. Especially useful for people that dislike taking pills and capsules.
- Drops – Drops are almost perfect when looking to include CBD into foods or beverages. Use the dropper to squirt a couple of drops directly into your plate or cup.
- Capsules – Capsules are good for days that are especially stressful calls for a slightly higher dosage of CBD.
- Applicator – CBD applicators are compact and easy to carry in your hand baggage when you’re on the move.
