What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, CBD, is a compound found in cannabis plant varieties like hemp and marijuana. CBD is found in higher concentrations in hemp plants and lower concentrations in Marijuana. CBD is one of the hundreds of known cannabinoids and has health and wellness benefits that many people are taking advantage of! CBD became federally legal when the 2018 farm bill legalized hemp-derived CBD as well as all Hemp Constituents, as well as less than 0.3 THC.
Benefits of CBD
CBD works when we supplement the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is one of the largest systems in not only human bodies but also all mammals (and some other species too) and is responsible for regulating several important functions. Overall The ECS helps with homeostasis, meaning CBD may help us stay in balance.
Supplementing this system with cannabinoids such as CBD may have benefits to your overall health and wellbeing.
CBD for Sleep
Many people have turned to CBD oil for sleep and sleep disorders with great success. CBD helps you sleep because it helps mitigate the problems that come with bad sleep, such as anxiety, stress, and pain. One great benefit of CBD for sleep is that it doesn’t have the negative side effects that sleeping medications do such as morning drowsiness. While CBD works great for sleep, at VIIA we recommend utilizing CBD with minor CBN, as well as THC if you are needing something stronger.
Full Spectrum CBD vs Broad Spectrum CBD
When it comes to shopping for CBD products, there are several types of extracts to look for. CBD Isolate is pure CBD, isolated from all other plant material. At VIIA Hemp CO we believe in using CBD oils that are either a full spectrum CBD oil or a broad spectrum CBD oil. Meaning all products will have a wide range of cannabinoids.
So what’s the difference between Full Spectrum CBD and Broad Spectrum CBD? Both are full plant extracts but Full Spectrum has trace amounts of THC in it while Broad Spectrum is THC Free.
Possible side effects of CBD oil
While there are not many known side effects of CBD, individual reactions may vary and certain people can also experience mild side effects such as changes in mental moods, drowsiness, and dizziness. If you are already using prescription medications it’s always important to talk to your medical provider before taking any new supplement.
Is CBD oil or Gummies Better?
CBD oil Gummies and CBD oil Tinctures both are beneficial, however, CBD tinctures may be better when it comes to getting the full bioavailability of CBD, while Gummies can be better when it comes to having accurate dosing and ease of administration. Either way, it’s up to a user to decide what is the best way of taking CBD for them.
What CBD Product is right for me?
With a wide range of CBD products available, it can sometimes be overwhelming to find what CBD product you should use. The first thing to consider is why you are taking it, and what results are you looking for.
Best CBD Products for everyday health and wellness
If you are searching for a daily CBD Supplement we recommend the VIIA Hemp Co Day and Night drops. Try taking one serving (1/2 a dropper) of the Day CBD + CBG Drops in the morning, and one serving (1/2 a dropper) of the Night CBD + CBN Drops in the evening. Since CBD accumulates over time, this can provide a base foundation for adding other CBD products for more specific uses.
Best CBD Products For Sleep
Before you buy CBD Oil for sleep, it’s important to know what strength you are looking for. At VIIA Hemp Co we offer different strengths of CBD Sleep Products. If you are looking for a THC Free CBD Sleep Product try the Zen CBD + CBN Gummies, if you want a full spectrum product without the psychoactive effects try the Night Drops.
VIIA Hemp Co also offers CBD Sleep products with THC. These products will offer a stronger effect for sleep. If you need a strong sleep product try the Delta 9 THC Dreams Gummies, or the Delta 8 THC Dreams Gummies.
