Why do People Take CBD?
Some people take CBD because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of CBD, you need to understand what it does in the body.
CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. These jobs include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule and more. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.
What is Homeostasis?
Homeostasis is a biological balance in your body’s natural rhythms. Sometimes it’s described as equilibrium in your system. Homeostasis has a big impact on your overall well-being. New research is always emerging exploring the link between homeostasis, and physical, mental, and even emotional health. People take CBD because they want to support their ECS, and all the work it does.
Your body makes its own cannabinoids. These are called endocannabinoids. If you’ve ever experienced a runner’s high, or the thrill of singing along to your favorite song, you’ve experienced the work of endocannabinoids. When plants make this type of compound, they’re called phytocannabinoids. CBD is one of over a hundred types of phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants. It’s non-intoxicating, which means it does not produce the high associated with marijuana.
How Should I Take CBD?
We offer different types of CBD products to help people add this hemp-derived compound to their daily routine in whatever way that works best for them.
Green Roads CBD oils are a proprietary blend created by our co-founder, a licensed compound pharmacist. In addition to CBD, these oils give you a rich, broad spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other natural hemp compounds. This collection of compounds may work synergistically with one another in ways that researchers refer to as “the entourage effect.” Oils offer the user a high bioavailability, which means they are absorbed and used by your system efficiently. They’re easy to use, too. All you have to do is place the desired amount of the oil under your tongue using the provided dropper, and wait a few seconds before swallowing.
CBD edibles are absorbed by the system differently from oils. When they’re processed by digestion, they take a bit more time to kick in, but the effects last longer. Our Relax Bears are among the best-tasting edibles on the market. Our Relief Toads are made with no artificial dyes, sugars, or sweeteners. Our Fruit Bites give you new flavors and shapes with every gummy. Our Sleepy Z’s are infused with melatonin to improve your nighttime routine. We make some of the most consistent gummies on the market, so you can be confident of how many milligrams of CBD you’re getting in each one. We’ve noticed people like to toss a bottle or On-the-Go packet in their bag so they’re well-supplied whenever the mood strikes.
Our Muscle & Joint Relief Cream and our Heat Relief topicals are perfect for people seeking location-specific support. If you’re a software developer dealing with wrist discomfort, a mom or dad with a tired back, an athlete who wants to take a recovery routine to the next level, or really anyone looking for on-the-spot support, these topicals are for you. We offer a variety of strengths to help people find the right serving size for them.
Our CBD-infused coffee and our CBD tea are both great ways for people to add CBD to their daily routine. The coffee is a gourmet blend with beans from various regions in Colombia. It has notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and a little hazelnut. It’s infused with CBD so you can drink it to support a relaxed, alert day. Our tea is a peppermint chamomile blend created by our co-founder, a licensed compound pharmacist. This infusion makes the perfect addition to any evening routine. Each cup offers about 7 milligrams of CBD.
Where Does Our CBD
Our CBD comes from hemp grown on American farms that use the highest standards of cultivation. We only source our raw ingredients from facilities that use the most advanced hemp extraction methods. We perform internal tests on these raw materials for metals, pesticides, and microbials. We then formulate our award-winning line of CBD products and send them to an external lab for evaluation. We make the resulting lab sheet available to all consumers through a simple scan of the QR code on our packaging.
BENEFITS OF CBD
You’re probably wondering what the benefits of CBD are. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to tell you! We wish we could because we’re incredibly proud of what we do. We hear stories from people all over the country who tell us how our products have changed their lives.
However, the US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all manufacturers of CBD products from making any claims about their ability to treat specific health conditions. Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process.
As a pharmacist-founded company, we make compliance with regulations one of our top priorities. We’re confident the FDA’s oversight of the CBD market will only help to distinguish our high-quality products from alternatives. Until the FDA approves clinical trials and lets us shout about CBD from the rooftops, we encourage our customers to look at the considerable information and many personal testimonials available online. Or join our thousands of loyal customers and just give Green Roads a try! Either way, we know you’ll be delighted by what you discover.
