Many of us have likely heard the phrase, “If it seems too good to be true, it usually is.” When it comes to many things in life, many products we might purchase, and many “good deals” we might encounter, this adage has some truth. Understandably, then, many wonder: Is this also true of CBD? Are all of the wonderful things I’m hearing about CBD really true? Can it really offer all of the benefits I hear about and do it in a safe and natural way? These questions are understandable. The answer, however, is positive: CBD really is as beneficial and safe as it seems to be.
At Om Grown Organics, we are passionate about CBD – both about the many health benefits it can provide and about educating those in our community about how it works in the body. We believe that an educated and informed customer is a customer who is equipped to make the best decisions about his or her health, and that is important. That’s why we are happy to provide information about CBD and about any of our products at any time. When you want to add a product to your health and wellness routine, you should know what’s in that product and how it will affect your body.
How CBD Functions in the Body
One of the amazing things about CBD is that it offers such a wide variety of benefits, and that it does so naturally by working within the framework of existing systems that our bodies already use for healthy day-to-day functioning. Each of our bodies has an endocannabinoid system. This system plays a very important role in ensuring that our bodies remain balanced. This means helping to ensure that a number of important processes are functioning properly. Some of those processes include metabolism, temperature, and the release of important neurotransmitter chemicals, among others. To accomplish this important work, the endocannabinoid system uses a system of endocannabinoid receptors. Those receptors receive and translate signals from cannabinoids, which are either produced by our bodies or those, like CBD, which are produced by outside sources that we ingest or use topically.
When CBD is consumed, it sends a number of signals to the cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system that help it achieve important effects like maintaining appropriate metabolism, encouraging a restful night’s sleep, reducing the discomfort associated with daily aches and muscle soreness, and improving overall feelings of calm and relaxation – to name a few benefits of many. In essence, then, CBD acts as a “booster” to the endocannabinoid system, helping to supplement and enhance the good and important work that it is already doing.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects of Using CBD?
Understandably, after hearing about all of the benefits that CBD offers, and even despite knowing that it works naturally within the body, many want to be certain that it has no serious side effects. Fortunately for those interested in using CBD and experiencing its benefits, it has repeatedly been shown that any side effects it may have are very mild. Some of the mild side effects that have been reported include:
- Mild nausea or digestive upset;
- Dry mouth; and
- Changes in appetite.
Fortunately, almost all of these side effects can typically be remedied by adjusting the dosage or the time of day that the product is consumed. Most of our customers who have done so usually find that the side effects diminish, while they continue to receive the health benefits that they desire.
We are also often asked, considering its many benefits, whether CBD is safe for long-term use. Again, the answer is a firm “yes.” Unlike prescription medications that may require increased dosages over time to continue providing benefits because of built-up tolerance levels, CBD has been shown to be effective for long-term use without the need to continually adjust dosage. Again, this is because CBD works naturally within the body’s existing systems. For this very reason, it has also been shown to be non-addictive in nature, which is another very positive attribute for those who are seeking to avoid dependency issues. Generally, CBD is an excellent choice for receiving many health benefits in a safe, natural, non-addictive, and healthy way. That’s good news for everyone who wants to feel better, obtain natural, effective relief for many common conditions, and have the peace of mind in knowing that no serious side effects will ensue.
