As the world wakes up to the benefits of consuming hemp and CBD, many seem to think that it is a new occurrence. However, just over 100 years ago hemp played a huge role in our ancestor’s day to day lives.
Why is Supplementing With CBD Important?
What many have forgotten is that up until the non-evidenced cannabis prohibition in the 20th century, hemp was a part of our daily diet, was used for fibre and also for its medicinal properties. It was one of the most common agricultural crops. The result of this widespread prohibition was the elimination of hemp from our diets. Some scientists believe that this abrupt elimination has caused many humans to have imbalanced endocannabinoid systems.
The endocannabinoid system is an internal system that regulates vital bodily functions such as our immune system, mood, memory, appetite, sleep patterns and pain. Scientists suspect that imbalanced endocannabinoid systems are responsible for many of today’s illnesses. Whilst we cannot legally outline the specific illnesses that can be remedied with CBD supplementation, typing ‘CBD benefits’ on Google should give you a better perspective.
But CBD is not only an excellent supplement for helping with a wide range of illnesses, it can also be used on a daily basis as a mood enhancer and for general wellbeing.
How Do I Use CBD oil as a Food Supplement?
Combining CBD oil with a varied diet, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle is an excellent way of making sure that your health is tip-top. But there is a lot of confusion in regards to dosing and many beginners don’t know where to start.
We always recommend new users to start with a small dose and then work their way up to their optimum dose, which is the amount of CBD oil that gives the best results for whatever purpose they use it for. Everyone is different so this can vary greatly from person to person, it really comes down to experimentation and conscious self-observation.
If you already know how much you need then the next logical step is to calculate the most cost-effective strength to buy. With BROWN’S CBD oil, the higher the strength, the better the value for money. If for example, you brought a 5% bottle of BROWN’S CBD oil and found that your optimum dose is 5 drops, that would equate to 12.5mg which is the equivalent of one drop of our 25% CBD oil. In this situation having one drop of the 25% instead of 5 of the 5% oil would make sense economically.
In terms of administration, it is important to hold the drops under the tongue for at least one minute to ensure that you absorb as much CBD as possible. We tend to hold ours for three or four minutes! Sublingual glands absorb CBD directly into the bloodstream which gives a fast-acting effect. Once you have finished holding the drops, wash them down with a glass of water! You can choose to add CBD to drinks and food but less CBD will be absorbed into your system.
Why Choose BROWN’S CBD?
BROWN’S CBD oil is made by PhD scientists at Europe’s largest and most experienced CBD producers so you can rest assured that it is the highest quality available. Part of our mission is to make pharmaceutical quality CBD oil available and affordable for as many people as possible so we sell our oils at market-leading prices.
