What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid derived from the hemp and/or cannabis plants. While some people may be more familiar with THC, both CBD and THC belong to the cannabinoid compound family.
CBD has taken the cannabis world by storm in recent years. Why’s that? Because it confers many of the same health benefits as conventional, high-THC cannabis…without the high. That makes it especially therapeutic for those who require large daily doses of cannabinoids.
More on how CBD works in a bit, but for now, let’s look at how you can get started with CBD products.
How to get started with CBD
If you’re new to CBD, getting started is actually pretty simple. Just begin taking small, measured amounts of CBD consistently each day. Many people get great results starting off with as little as 5 milligrams. This is known as the “start low and go slow” approach.
And if you don’t feel much of a difference with a low dose, no worries. You can slowly ramp things up over time! In general, a good place to wind up is around 1 milligram of CBD per 5 kilos per day; if you weigh 80 kilos, you might wind up around 16 milligrams of CBD daily.
Just keep in mind as you progress that CBD dosing is a very individualized matter. Some people need radically more CBD; others need far less. It pays to listen closely to your body!
CBD’s amazing health benefits
Let’s get into CBD’s specific health benefits next. It actually checks off many of the same boxes as THC, such as:
- Reduced inflammation
- Reduced pain
- Improved mobility
- Improved mood
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced depression
- Better sleep
- Better recovery
- Improved brain function
These shared benefits are made possible because both CBD and THC work through something called the endocannabinoid system. All in all, CBD promotes a state of inner-body balance called homeostasis. By helping one’s body stay in better balance with itself, CBD may address the root issues that end up causing many modern diseases.
Another cool thing: you can also ‘hack’ your CBD intake in order to experience better sleep. CBD dosing is biphasic, meaning its effects vary depending on the dose you take; lower doses are stimulating, but higher doses are sedating. By intentionally taking a slightly higher dose, you can overwhelm your endocannabinoid receptors just enough to experience some drowsiness!
Our favourite CBD products
At MMJDirect we strive to bring you the best selection of cannabis products possible — and the way we approach CBD is no different. All in all there are nearly 20 different CBD products to choose from. Here’s a brief look at some of our favourites:
CBD Gummy Drops | This premium CBD Gummy comes to us courtesy of Science Lab, a top brand that prides itself on using only lab-tested ingredients. They come in two tasty flavours: wild cherry and blueberry.
And customers love them. “These are by far the best way I have found to consume [CBD],” one user reports. Indeed, each gummy contains exactly 10 milligrams of CBD, a perfect dose for beginners or even those interested in microdosing.
Strawberry Feels CBD | These strawberry-shaped gummies are equal parts cute and effective. Each one is packed with a relatively high dose of CBD — 25 milligrams — designed to promote fast relief.
And despite the playfulness, these gummies are truly premium quality. Given that they’re made by industry-leading brand SeC, though…maybe we shouldn’t be that surprised.
Daily CBD — 250mg | This full spectrum CBD Oil provides a simple-but-effective way to get your perfect daily dose. It’s unflavoured, unfiltered, and unaltered, just like nature intended.
Each dropper of Daily CBD contains just over 8 milligrams of cannabidiol, which is plenty to breathe some life into your endocannabinoid system. Users report strong relief from pain and anxiety.
Daily CBD — 1250mg | For those who need that extra bit of oomph, look no further than this ultra-strong CBD Oil. Coming in at just over 40mg/mL, it’s designed specifically for anyone who’s facing more severe health problems. “Highly recommend, and I will be ordering again,” says one happy customer with neck and back pain.
CBD Transdermal Patch | This high-tech transdermal is ideal for those who want to feel better without changing their daily schedule around. You can simply apply it then forget it — your pain will probably be forgotten about, too.
Each patch contains 20 milligrams of CBD combined with known permeability enhancers to increase its absorption. Costumers say the patch is even good for reducing muscle soreness post-workout.
500mg CBD/THC Tincture | This perfectly blended tincture is ideal for those who want to experience the power of THC and the balance of CBD…at the very same time. It contains 500 milligrams of each cannabinoid in a smaller-than-usual 15mL bottle.
Higher doses are great for pain relief and sleep problems; lower doses are great for increasing focus and creativity. Enjoy!
Daily Blend — 800:200 | This CBD-dominant 4:1 blend is a favourite of customers who want just a little THC…but a lot of relief. Its benefits include better sleep, reduced inflammation, decreased autoimmunity, and more. Another plus: this CBD oil is completely full spectrum.
10mg CBD Caps | Microdosers, take note: these CBD-centric caps are perfect for dialling in that small, quantized dose. Each capsule contains 10 milligrams of CBD and one milligram of THC. Even the base of this CBD product is healthy — it’s a combination of MCT oil and absorption-boosting sunflower lecithin.
25mg CBD Caps | These premium CBD caps are a little more powerful than our other options, making them perfect for those who use CBD for more challenging health issues. They’re made by an industry-leading brand called Array (as are the 10mg caps above), so you know the product quality is here.
RSO — Hailey’s Comet | Short for Rick Simpson Oil, this RSO-inspired product features a unique 5:2 ratio of CBD to THC. It’s derived from a Sativa-dominant strain called Hailey’s Comet, which means you can use it while still staying active and productive.
And don’t forget about this product’s unique 5:2 cannabinoid ratio, which confers a very manageable high alongside powerful health benefits. “This is the absolute best, most affordable medicine that I have found,” reported one happy customer.
CBD Distillate Carts | These CBD distillate + terpene carts are about as pure as it gets. Their consistency comes courtesy of organic terpenes, so there’s no fillers, additives, or synthetic ingredients required.
And then there’s the impressively high cannabinoid content. Each cart contains roughly 80% CBD and 3.5% THC; this combo provides plenty of healing power without that characteristic THC high.
0:1 THC:CBD Hemp Oil | Speaking about unique cannabinoid ratios, this CBD Oil contains absolutely no THC. Instead it’s packed with premium CBD — 1 milligram of CBD per drop, to be exact.
CBD Isolate | Last, but definitely not least, we have CBD Isolate. This unique CBD product contains exactly what its name implies: 99.8%, crystalline CBD isolate, without any other terpenes of cannabinoids included.
