What CBD is right for me?

How CBD changed my life?

CBD has a life changing potential. From mind to body, there’s benefit.

By doing some research on the specific reason you’re considering taking CBD, will help you get a better idea of whether or not you want to give CBD a try.

Things I use CBD for.

  • In between my toes (fungus) — “ewww”
  • Drops on Q-Tip and put inside of my ear
  • Daily wellness
  • Sore muscles from working out hard
  • Cuts and open wounds
  • When I’m not feeling good I’ll take a larger dosage
  • Calm down when I’m too focused and excited on a project
  • Boost immune system
  • Allergies

I take CBD every day, sometimes several times per day. My favorite is the standard CBD oil tincture drops, without added flavor. What I like most about the products I use is potency, cannabinoid variety, and it actually tastes like hemp.

Furthermore, CBD companies provide you with an opportunity to sell their products, thus getting your first job in the cannabis industry as a sales person.

CBD side effects?

Nothing is without risk.

WebMD lists dry mouth, low blood pressure, light headedness, and drowsiness.

Healthline lists diarrhea, appetite & weight changes, and fatigue.

  • Not taking a consistent dose
  • You’re actually taking a CBD isolate and not a broad-spectrum

  • Not giving it enough time to build up in your system

  • If you’re taking it for sleep, you might need a much higher dose
  • Genetics

General doses to get started taking CBD.

The human EndoCannabinoid System (ECS) has a job of making sure your body functions as it should. When you have a deficiency of the essential nutrients of cannabinoids, your mind and body can begin to not operate like it usually is supposed to.

If you’re been deficient in cannabinoids for a while, it might time some time to get enough cannabinoids put back inside of your body for it to start working as it should.
