The CBD industry has grown rapidly in recent years, but more research is still needed on how CBD affects us and its potential benefits. People are still learning about this compound, and there is still much to discover. A common question from our customers is: “How does CBD make you feel?”.
First, we will give you a brief overview of what CBD is and which products are the most popular on the CBD market. Secondly, let’s look at the legal status of CBD. Finally, we will focus on topical and oral CBD and its effects on our minds and body.
As we wrote in a previous blog, CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, a compound found mainly in some Cannabis Sativa L plant species. Chemically, CBD belongs to a group of terpenes, and phenolic compounds that are abundant in hair-like structures called glandular trichomes, which are found on the surface of the flowers and leaves of cannabis plants.
Hemp was one of the first plants to produce fibres for clothing. Since hemp has been used for more than 25 000 different applications throughout history, it is important that we continue to learn about this amazing plant.
Let’s take a look at the most common products made from CBD:
- CBD oils
- Cosmetic products containing CBD, such as anti-ageing creams and serums.
- Oral hygiene products such as toothpaste and mouthwashes.
- E-liquids with CBD for vaporisation.
- There are many other ways to incorporate CBD into your life, but these are currently the most popular choices.
- Beverages with CBD and other active ingredients
Before deciding how to consume CBD and which products to choose, it is important to know the legal status of CBD. This depends on a number of factors, such as the form of the final product, the source of the CBD, and, finally, the country’s regulations.
These rules are changing rapidly. We, therefore, recommend that you keep up to date with the latest developments in the CBD market. We are closely monitoring the situation in the EU and the UK and will keep you informed of any major developments and regulatory updates without delay.
CBD AND SKIN
CBD is a powerful antioxidant and has been shown in several studies to help with common skin problems, moisturise and generally help improve the appearance of the skin. Topical CBD has been developed to help with a variety of skin conditions. You can find CBD in serums, creams, masks, body and facial oils. You can also use CBD lip balms to keep your lips soft and healthy.
CBD creams are also becoming increasingly popular. For example, Dr Kent offers active creams for various occasions that soothe the skin. It also helps tired joints, arms and legs after strenuous exercise or physical activity.
The World Health Organisation has recognised that CBD is safe and suitable for all skin types.
CBD AND ORAL CARE
Now that we know about CBD and its potential benefits, it is not surprising that CBD can significantly impact our oral care. CBD toothpaste and mouthwashes can soothe the gums and improve the overall freshness of the mouth. They naturally remove decay-causing bacteria, restore pH balance and freshen breath. They also take care of the gums.
In summary, CBD can become part of your life in many ways. There are topical, oral and other options. It is important to know the legal status of CBD in your country or state. We also recommend that you consult your doctor or dermatologist before taking CBD.
