The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biochemical communication network that plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, everyday experiences, and overall health. The ECS is present almost everywhere in the body, facilitating regulatory responses across the central nervous system, digestive system, many vital organs and other bodily functions.
Humans and animals make their own cannabinoid called Anandamide, which binds to cannabinoid receptors like a key fitting a lock, helping the body to achieve homeostasis, or internal regulatory balance. CBD and other cannabinoids can act as mimicking keys and bind to these same receptors.
When you take a CBD Isolate, you're only getting the benefits of a single cannabinoid. Taking a Full or Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract, like the ones in MyRemedeMD Tablets and Tinctures, allows you to take advantage of the hemp plant's natural cannabinoid profile.
Everyone's body absorbs, metabolizes, and responds to CBD differently. Finding the optimal amount is typically best achieved by starting with smaller amounts and working your way up over two or three weeks.
CBD is also a biphasic compound, which means it may elicit different reactions at different concentration levels. To help one conveniently find the most effective amount, MyRemedeMD offers a variety of serving sizes across our product line, ranging from 10 mg Tablets to 1500 mg Tinctures.
When to take CBD depends largely on what you’re using it for. Similar to CBD amount the time of day in which you take CBD should be a matter of your specific wellness needs.
The effects of CBD also depend on how the product is consumed and the format in which it's delivered. A tablet, for example, is absorbed differently than a tincture. It's wise to start with a low amount, track how your body reacts, and determine how long it takes for it to take effect.
CBD is non-intoxicating, offering wellness benefits without producing the high associated with THC, the other prominent cannabinoid of the cannabis plant.
CBD is generally considered non-habit forming. The World Health Organization has reported that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependent potential” in humans.
CBD won’t necessarily make you sleepy, but it may calm you down, making it easier to fall asleep, especially in higher amounts.
More research is needed to draw clear conclusions about CBD’s potential side effects. CBD may interact with or alter the effects of medications. If you have a condition or are prescribed medication, consult with a doctor before adding CBD to your regimen.
