It is known from different scientific studies that CBD is beneficial for multiple reasons. We have another longer article talking about the properties of CBD oil. In this post we are going to treat the 4 most well-known conditions among the benefits of CBD and we are going to propose ways to take it for each one.
Main uses of CBD
CBD for Anxiety
Anxiety is one of the most popular conditions in the Western world. It can have different symptoms and affects each person differently. Although there are more frequent symptoms than others, such as the feeling of lack of oxygen, tachycardia and the feeling of discomfort and lack of motivation.
The doses of CBD oil to relieve symptoms or stress are usually low, although as we say this is variable for each person. For more recurring anxiety that is present throughout the day, we can take 3 or 4 doses throughout the day in small doses to relieve the feeling of discomfort. We can gradually increase this dose little by little to relieve the symptoms.
Occasionally, CBD oil can be used for more severe crises or increase the dose if we have more pronounced anxiety. As well as making a reinforcement shot in activity or situations where we know that a more noticeable anxiety can be triggered.
One possible way to take CBD is first thing in the morning in low doses and another dose after a meal. It is not advisable to abuse the oil and you should always take it with caution and inform your regular doctor to check the opinions of a professional. Remember that the effect of CBD ingested usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes to take effect.
CBD for Pain
For the use of CBD oils for pain, it is necessary to understand that the type of pain, the location, the person and the perception of the pain vary significantly in each case.
We can put as examples mild muscle pain after a workout, low-grade arthritis, joint pain in general or mild lower back pain. It can also be used for more severe pain, increasing the intake and dose to relieve symptoms.
It should be noted that the benefits of CBD oil are not instantaneous and that we must allow several minutes to pass to notice its effects. In some cases, several shots are needed and the necessary dose must be well identified to notice its benefits.
It has a great anti-inflammatory power, however we have to take into account that they are natural substances and need time to act. For localized pain, you can also use the CBD salves. The balms act on the skin and are rapidly absorbed.
CBD for insomnia
There are different studies that indicate that the cbd oil improves the quality of sleep and lengthens the duration of rest. It should be noted that in order for us to really enter a deep sleep we need higher doses than for, for example, mild pain. These doses to improve and lengthen sleep are usually around 20 mg of CBD. Here you can see the dosages for 4Collectors CBD oil. Doses of 10 to 20 mg of CBD should be enough to have a sedative and muscle relaxant effect that helps you fall asleep, although as we have already explained, this can be highly variable depending on the person who consumes it.
CBD for depression
CBD oil can help control the symptoms of different mental disorders and directly influence mood.
As with any other symptom when using CBD, each one must find their dose that is effective for them. We remind you that CBD is not a miracle but rather natural plant extracts that, although powerful and without *side effects, do not have an instantaneous effect. Depression itself is already difficult to treat and sometimes even to identify. This is why you really need follow-up and patience to really notice its effects. It should be noted that you should always consult a professional and in no case substitute it for any medication without the supervision of a doctor.
For this type of symptoms it is important to start with low doses for days to see if any improvement is really noticeable and if not, the dose can be gradually increased.
*Excessive consumption of CBD may have some mild side effects. Such as vomiting, changes in appetite and diarrhea.
Forms of use of CBD
Remember that in addition to the ways of using CBD that we have discussed, such as oil and balm, there are two more that are worth commenting on. one is in CBD infusions and another is smoked CBD (which we do not recommend because current regulations do not allow it). It should be noted that the infusion format is better made with the flowers than with the leaves and that the liquid used has to contain a part of fat such as milk or nut drink so that the CBD can adhere.
