Beginner’s Guide To CBD: Your Most Common Questions Answered
If you’re new to the world of CBD, we know how overwhelming it can be to dissect all of the information out there. And, with distinctions like full-spectrum, isolate, and broad-spectrum CBD, we understand your confusion! That’s why we wanted to give you a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions about CBD so you know exactly what you’re getting here at errbshop.
First Of All, What Exactly Is CBD?
For those of you that haven’t yet been initiated into the world of CBD, it may just sound like another trendy buzzword of the wellness community. But, we’re here to help clear up your confusion so you understand exactly what CBD is and how it can help you improve your sense of well-being.
Cannabidiol, most commonly referred to as CBD, is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the hemp plant. One of hundreds of cannabinoids in the plant, CBD has garnered the most attention for its potentially beneficial properties. Unlike THC, the psychoactive component of the plant, it will not get you high, and even contains properties that lessen the psychoactive properties of THC when taken together.
Research has concluded that CBD is a safe, non-addictive natural supplement that can have a wide variety of potential benefits for common ailments, such as chronic pain, anxiety, and sleeping disorders. It has also gained a lot of attention from the beauty world for having a positive effect on skin conditions, like acne, eczema, and psoriasis when applied topically.
Is It Legal?
Since the 2018 Farm Bill passed, CBD has become legal in all 50 states. The THC content is limited to .3% in states where marijuana is still illegal, and all full-spectrum CBD products must legally comply with this dosage in order to be sold in all 50 states.
What Kind Of CBD Does errbshop Use?
We use full-spectrum CBD in all of our products. It is much less processed than other variants of CBD, and contains all of the beneficial terpenes, cannabinoids, and THC (no more than .3%) that other variants process and extract out of the final product. This gives our products the potential for wider benefits than others that go through a more extensive extraction process and only contain CBD isolate.
What Is The Difference Between Full-Spectrum CBD And Other Kinds Of CBD?
CBD is commonly sold in 3 different forms: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate. The key differences between the 3 are the amount of processing the compounds go through to get the final product. Full-spectrum CBD contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids, THC, and terpenes available in the hemp plant. Broad-spectrum CBD eliminates THC through processing and extraction, and CBD isolate eliminates everything but the CBD.
Because full-spectrum CBD contains all the therapeutic compounds of the hemp plant, it creates what scientists refer to as the entourage effect when you use it. The entourage effect states that whole plant extracts of CBD- which include THC, terpenes, and other cannabinoid compounds- maximize the therapeutic potential of each individual component when taken together. In other words, full-spectrum CBD delivers maximum healing potential because the THC, cannabinoids, and terpenes in the hemp plant remain intact, allowing for the sum to be greater than each individual part.
On the other hand, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate both go through extensive processing and extracting to eliminate THC. Because THC and additional cannabinoids are processed out, CBD products that say “broad-spectrum” or “CBD isolate” will not give you the same synergistic effects of full-spectrum CBD products.
What CBD Strength Is Right For Me?
Another common point of confusion when it comes to CBD is figuring out the right dose for you. Topical CBD usually contains anywhere from 100 to 5,000 mg of CBD oil per container. How much or how little you use will depend on the effects you want, your body weight, and your current body chemistry.
If you are new to CBD and are looking to experiment with its stress-relieving potential, we recommend starting with a lower dose, such as our 60 mg rb+ candle to see how your body responds and go from there. If you have been taking CBD and you know it works well for you, our errb+ collection contains 100 mg of CBD per ounce, and can be incredibly helpful for chronic pain, sleep disorders, and anxiety.
Feel free to experiment with what works best for you, as studies have shown that continuous CBD use is well-tolerated in humans, even in extremely high doses like 1,500 mg per day. However, it is still important to note that you should speak with your doctor before making any changes to your treatment plan, including adding CBD to your wellness protocol.
Key Benefits of CBD Infused Massage Candles
With over 50 million Americans suffering from chronic pain, it comes as no surprise that CBD is a fast-growing alternative to conventional pain management. Studies have demonstrated CBD’s effectiveness in treating both chronic pain and joint-related pain by lowering inflammation with little side effects. Since inflammation is the culprit behind a wide variety of pains, including PMS-related cramps, endometriosis pain, fibromyalgia, and certain autoimmune diseases, CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties provide outstanding potential for alleviating pain in a wide variety of patients. CBD is also incredibly effective at helping to alleviate daily aches and pains, and the warm massage oil can feel especially soothing after a long day or tough workout.
Anxiety & Stress Reduction
Numerous studies have pointed towards CBD’s effectiveness at alleviating generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and even anxiety prior to public speaking, making it a valuable resource for those that struggle with anxiety. Not only can CBD help reduce the psychological symptoms of anxiety, such as racing thoughts, but it also helps regulate the physiological effects, like a faster heartbeat as well. Because CBD can help the body use serotonin more efficiently through the endocannabinoid system, it may also alleviate symptoms of depression, especially in times of stress.
CBD is also incredibly effective for relieving stress and lowering cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is released in response to chronic stress and can wreak havoc on your entire system, resulting in increased body fat around the midsection, fatigue, brain fog, and high blood pressure. Because CBD is an adaptogen that helps our bodies respond more effectively to stress, it can change our physiological response to external stressors, keeping us calm and collected- even when dealing with our irritating boss or overbearing mother-in-law.
Grow Your Hair Naturally & Improve Scalp Health
One of the most incredible benefits of CBD massage oil is just how effective it can be for your hair. CBD helps regulate sebum production and is helpful in treating both dry scalps and oily scalps by regulating the amount of oil it produces. Because CBD contains a wealth of hair-building amino acids, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, it is especially helpful at treating thinning hair, strengthening fragile hair, and boosting hair growth. Our premium candle blend also provides an extra dose nourishing shea butter, avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil- all of which enhance CBD’s hair-growing potential.
Glowing, Youthful Skin
Another important beauty discovery is the impact topical CBD oil has on our skin. We’re always looking for ways to brighten our glow, and CBD has been demonstrated to be an excellent addition to a regular skincare routine. Because CBD regulates sebum production, it can help reduce acne breakouts and manage oily skin. CBD contains beneficial compounds that can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and maintain a youthful glow, making it an all-natural supplement to address the effects of aging. CBD will also provide an unparalleled glow for those with dull, dry skin, and is especially soothing to those with sensitive skin.
Encourage Better Sleep & Prevent Grogginess
We all know how important a good night's sleep is to our overall well-being and daily productivity, but sometimes it can feel impossible to get proper rest, no matter how hard we try. Luckily, CBD’s naturally relaxing properties will help you drift off to sleep, especially during times of high stress- which, ironically, is when you need sleep the most.
Similar to how CBD helps regulate stress levels and alleviate anxiety, it also has potential to help you get better, deeper sleep when used nightly. Not only that, but it can even prevent daytime grogginess and sleepiness- which is a major plus in our book.
