What is it? Is it legal? Is it drugs? Does it really help with all the things it says it helps with?
We have all heard about CBD. It seems as though they are putting it in EVERYTHING lately! From shampoos to trans-dermal patches, CBD seems to be the “go to” ingredient. But, what exactly is it?
My life long friend, Jill, came into the salon and starting telling me about how she has been using CBD patches and how it has been the only thing thus far to help her with the side effects from Fibromyalgia. As she was explaining to me what these patches do for her, I started to think maybe this is something that can help me. I stand behind the chair all day in the salon and my back suffers to say the least. I tried the patches and I have to say….it helped me more than I thought possible! I think there is such a stigma with CBD being associated with marijuana that people are turned off by it. It is NOT drugs. It is NOT marijuana. It is NOT just for hippy health nuts who don’t like taking meds!!! I asked Jill if she would be a guest blogger and write a post with information about how CBD helps with everything from ADHD to nerve pain and everything in between! I am so happy she said yes. I want to help spread the word and get info about CBD and its benefits out there to all of you!
Here’s what Jill has to say on CBD…….
Are you wondering what all the hype is about CBD? Do the benefits of using CBD sound to good to be true? Let me clear up the mystery behind CBD and its benefits!
The use and benefits of cannabis has been growing intensely over the past few years as people are looking for a more holistic remedy to pain and illness without the nasty side effects of prescription medication. As the demand for CBD oil soars, doctors and scientists have been studying its benefits.
What exactly is CBD, you ask? CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a molecule found in cannabis. Before you automatically jump to thoughts of…it’s marijuana, know this…..It is non-psychoactive, which means it doesn’t produce the “high” associated with marijuana. In fact, our bodies have an Endocannabinoid System which is designed to accept Cannabinoids. These are known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. Let me “demystify” this further and let me explain some of the benefits of using CBD.
- Naturally manages feelings of stress and anxiety
- Reduces pain, inflammation, muscle spasms
- Improves sleep
- Achieve mental clarity
- Used for skincare to reduce redness and diminish breakouts
- Weight loss as it is said to convert white “bad” fat to brown fat which helps the body to burn fat
- Reduces feelings of Nausea
- Mental disorders, as well as, MS, Fibromyalgia, Cancer and many more
Why would anyone NOT benefit from using this? They wouldn’t!
Let me introduce to you the newest and best method of getting your daily dose of CBD. No, you do not smoke it, and no you do not have ingest any kind of vapor or oil. Let me tell you about CBD patches. The Ameo
Entune 24hour transdermal CBD patch to be exact! This offers transdermal delivery via use of a topical patch. This method provides sustained
delivery to produce long term effects. It should also be noted that this type of delivery bypasses first- pass metabolism in the liver making it safer for you! In the past, oral CBD had become popular in holistic and natural health food stores but things have improved. Studies have shown that by orally taking CBD oil, it can be unabsorbed and ineffective in bio availability.
As a Fibromyalgia sufferer, myself, I have tried the pharmaceutical route just to find awful side effects and no real relief. The patches have been a complete “game changer” for me. The struggle was real! Fatigue, brain fog, sleepless nights, joint pain and muscle weakness was day in and day out and downright awful! The CBD patches have changed all of this for me and I won’t go a day without a patch now! Each month that I have continued using them I have seen more and more benefits. I sometimes think “Could this possibly be the patch?” yet, there are no other meds I’m taking and I continue to feel so much better! It has changed my life for the better!
