Is CBD for you?

The use of cannabidiol (CBD) as a supplement is gaining in popularity among those opting for a healthier lifestyle, and for many good reasons. The use of CBD has been shown to have a positive effect on general health and wellbeing. But, how do you know if CBD is right for you? And which CBD product is best?

At Nature’s Elite, we want to give you the information you need to make an informed decision about the use of CBD. It’s vital that you have a thorough understanding of how CBD interacts with the human body, and the many ways you can use it to promote a healthy lifestyle. Through education and awareness, you will gain confidence in choosing and purchasing the right CBD product to meet your needs.

Knowing what CBD is and where it comes from is the first step. CBD comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. Different varieties of the plant are used to produce hemp and marijuana. CBD oil is produced from the industrial hemp variety of the plant. Through the process of extraction, CBD oil is separated from the plant material. The main difference between CBD and marijuana is that it does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. Therefore, you won’t get high from using CBD.

How CBD works
CBD works in the body by activating receptors in the endocannabinoid system(ECS). The main job of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis and help the body adapt to outside stressors. The ECS plays a vital role in many of the body’s necessary functions, such as mood, memory, pain regulation, and cognitive processes. There are two main types of cannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally within the body, and phytocannabinoids are produced from a plant. CBD is one of many different kinds of phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids mimic endocannabinoids and can act as a supplement, giving your body a boost beyond what it can provide on its own.

Receptors for cannabinoids are found in almost every system of the body including the digestive, reproductive, nervous, and immune systems. These receptors help regulate neurotransmitter function, inflammation, mitochondrial function, and metabolism, which is why the benefits of CBD oil are so widespread. Small doses of natural cannabinoids from hemp and other plants can help support the ECS and enhance its signaling.

Research has shown that CBD oil can alleviate social anxiety and help relieve pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. CBD can also reduce anxiety and depression. CBD can lower inflammation and help alleviate autoimmune conditions, aid gut health, and may relieve epilepsy in children.

According to a report from the World Health Organization, CBD is safe for almost everyone. However, it is always important to check with your doctor before starting any CBD product, especially if you are pregnant or on any medications. Though CBD oil is very safe on its own, it may interact with medications, particularly opioids. A few of the known side effects of CBD include nausea, dry mouth, vomiting, diarrhea, and bloating. If you try a CBD product and start to see unpleasant side effects, stop taking it and see your doctor immediately. While there are many emerging studies showing signs of CBD’s health benefits, research is limited on its long-term effects. Speak with your doctor if you’re concerned about interactions or are unsure about using hemp oil for your conditions. It’s important to remember that CBD oil is a supplement and should be used as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.

How to choose a CBD product
When it comes to purchasing CBD, quality is vital. Discuss it directly with the company that sells the product. To ensure the highest standards, Nature’s Elite carries pure CBD oil and other CBD products made by Elixinol. Elixinol is certified by the U.S.Hemp Authority, which requires a comprehensive training program and a third-party audit of its process and products’ rigorous quality standards. To read more about Elixinol go to our FAQ page.

CBD is available in many forms including edibles, topical creams, capsules, tinctures, oils, teas, and vape pens. To deliver its benefits, CBD has to be absorbed into the bloodstream. There are several different ways to use CBD. You can consume it orally in CBD capsules and CBD gummies, absorb it sublingually through CBD drops under the tongue, or apply it topically with a CBD cream. It can also be injected and inhaled through vaping. Each method delivers CBD to the bloodstream in a different way.

Many CBD oil products come in a range of concentrations. The amount of CBD they contain per bottle or capsule can usually be found on the packaging. Some list the amounts in mg, such as 500 mg, or 1,000 mg, while others CBD oil products may specify the concentration as percentages, such as 10%, or 20% cannabidiol (CBD).

Start with products featuring a low to moderate dosage, then gradually work your way up to a higher dosage if needed. Observe the effects for several days or a few weeks, and then make the necessary adjustments. Once the desired effect sets in, you will be able to establish what concentration of CBD is best for you.

CBD dosages vary depending on an individual's needs. In some cases, a small dose is all that is necessary to achieve optimal results. A universally prescribed dosage is impossible due to variables such as weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment, and product consistency. Start with the suggested CBD dosage on the product. Learn more on our CBD Products page.

"I have had questions about CBD oil and was honestly kinda skeptical. I was on Day 4 of a MASSIVE migraine that had kept me in bed and miserable. Nothing worked. Diana was so helpful in helping me find the best product for me and within minutes of taking the product I already felt some relief.​ ​​​​​​"
