With so many people embracing CBD as their go-to remedy for conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety, many CBD products have hit the market recently, but not everyone’s clear about what’s the best product for them.
CBD – short for Cannabidiol – is a compound inside the cannabis plant that is non-psychoactive but highly effective in the treatment of a number of medical conditions for some people. Today we’ll be focusing on CBD flowers, a natural remedy for pain and other conditions that can be consumed either by vaping or smoking.
People have been using natural rescue remedies like St John’s Wort for years, especially when it comes to dealing with things like panic attacks and anxiety caused by external circumstances. CBD, a natural compound – which usually comes from organically grown hemp plants – reacts with the endocannabinoid system present inside every person. This recently discovered system helps to regulate things like sleep, appetite and mood in humans, and CBD is one of the main compounds which activates this system.
Hemp plants are specially cultivated by CBD companies across the US and Europe and they look, smell and taste much like conventional cannabis but with some major differences. While conventional cannabis makes you high, leaving some people feeling confused or disoriented – even if it does work in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system – CBD buds offer no high feeling and simply leave you feeling relaxed and stress-free but without the high (and therefore without the low that comes afterward.) That’s precisely why so many folks are turning to CBD to deal with their issues – favoring an all-natural solution instead of toxic and addictive prescription medications often prescribed by doctors as the first port of call.
There are many different ways of taking CBD, depending on your specific needs and your preferred delivery method. While some people prefer to take CBD Oil in tincture form, others prefer to mask the flavor of the CBD by ingesting it via specially made CBD Gummies or other CBD Edibles. When CBD is taken in either of these ways it enters the bloodstream via the stomach which means it can take up to two hours to start taking effect. That works for some people with some conditions but others need to feel the relief far quicker.
CBD is also available in CBD Vape Juice form (also known as CBD e-liquid.) This is taken via a vaporizer in much the same way that an electric cigarette is used. The liquid inside contains a predetermined amount of concentrated CBD Extract as well as a carrier to make it vapable such as Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin, alongside flavorings and in many cases, added terpenes. When CBD is taken in this way it enters the bloodstream via the lungs and that means the effects are felt almost immediately and in a strong and well-rounded way.
CBD Buds are becoming increasingly popular these days, especially among people who like to smoke their CBD or take it in a specially made vaporizer. CBD flowers can be ground and rolled into a joint or they can be smoked in a pipe or similar smoking device. Many people opt for this delivery system when it comes to CBD as the effects are reportedly quick and strong.
The other main advantage of smoking or vaping CBD flowers is that you can control the dose you take more precisely and even just take the precise amount you need when required. CBD Buds are also legal across some countries in Europe and in many states in the US. Just make sure you don’t mistake CBD Buds for THC Buds unless you want to feel the high or stoned effects associated with THC-heavy cannabis strains. THC is illegal and classed as a controlled substance in countries like the UK and elsewhere in Europe as well as on the Federal level in the US.
There’s a wide range of CBD Buds available on the market these days and you can also choose the CBD strength and strain of the flower. This means that when you smoke or vape CBD Buds, you can tailor make the effects and tweak them until you reach your sweet spot. Always make sure that you only purchase CBD Buds from reputable companies with a solid reputation and only from those who send their CBD to a third-party lab to be tested for strength, potency and of course, safety.
