CBD has become wildly popular in the past few years, and it’s mostly due to its effectiveness. For many people who use it, CBD simply works. And when something works without the nasty, damaging side effects common of mainstream medications, people will quickly latch onto it.
The question that many of our customers have, is this: Is it a good idea to use CBD every day?
Well, there a short answer and a long answer. First, let’s get the short answer out of the way:
Yes, we believe that using CBD on a daily basis is a very smart idea.
In today’s post, we’re going to give you the long answer on why that’s the case. Let’s jump into it.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the cannabis plant—that same cannabis plant that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) comes from. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana—the compound that gets you “high”.
CBD has no THC and is not psychoactive. There is no high to get from using it.
The body has a collection of cell receptors that respond to cannabinoids: The endocannabinoid system. There are two receptors in the endocannabinoid system – Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2). CB1 receptors are found in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system.
These receptors regulate many of our bodily functions:
- Immune function
- Motor control
If the above body functions are out of whack, it’s likely because there’s a disturbance in the endocannabinoid system.
And that’s where CBD comes in.
Can CBD Help Me?
CBD can help regulate and optimize those bodily functions listed above. Let’s look at a few ways daily regimen can make a huge difference.
CBD can help with rest.
Those nights filled frustrating insomnia can disappear with CBD. Studies have shown that CBD reduces rapid eye movement (REM) during sleep. Pain-induced insomnia can be treated with CBD as well.
CBD can help you feel more calm.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States—40 million adults suffer from an anxiety-related illness. Most who deal with these problems either get no help for it, or they take prescribed medications. These meds have severe side effects, and they can be extremely addictive. CBD can be a much safer alternative. Taking small doses of CBD daily can quell anxiety and stress—without the need for harmful pharmaceuticals.
CBD can help with soreness and discomfort.
Athletes who play physically demanding sports use CBD to help with muscle and joint pain. Normal people can use it, too. Whether you’re dealing with a crushing migraine, or you have acute elbow tendinitis, CBD can help. If you’re dealing with a chronic pain, massage that pain area with CBD oil or cream. Doing this daily can help with long-term pain relief.
Prevention is the best method of body maintenance.
When you were a kid, you likely heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. While we’re not telling you to quit eating apples, we do believe that daily doses of CBD can help keep you away from the doctor, too.
CBD is incredibly versatile, and it’s also very easy to incorporate it into your daily lifestyle. The therapeutic benefits make it one of nature’s best compounds. And based on the studies conducted in the industry, and the actual things we’ve seen, we fully recommend dosing CBD on a regular basis. At Cobyda, we offer an assortment of CBD oils, creams, vapes, edibles, and more. We recommend trying it out for yourself.
