CBD Tinctures Can Make a Difference in Your Life
Cannabidiol, more often called CBD, is revolutionary, and you need to know about it. CBD is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana, or from hemp. Unlike marijuana, CBD can help you find relief without being psychoactive. That is, CBD doesn’t get you high because it is derived from the non-psychoactive portion of the marijuana or hemp plants.
More studies need to be completed before scientists reach any official conclusions about CBD benefits, but based on what they know now, CBD looks promising. You could even get some great health benefits from properly using CBD-based products, which are available here in Central Ohio, including at Kenneth’s Hair Salons and Day Spas.
Please note that first-time CBD users should consult with their doctor before using any products containing CBD.
At Kenneth’s, we concern ourselves greatly with our clients’ skin. That’s why we want to share the latest skincare information and products with you. CBD can help beautify your skin, which is one very big reason we wanted to include it in our retail space.
Acne is a common skin condition that affects people beyond their teenage years. Dermatologists believe acne’s causes are numerous: genetic; bacteria; inflammation; or the overproduction of sebum, a type of oil made in glands in the skin. One study showed that CBD oil prevented the skin from secreting excess sebum and forming acne spots. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, the scientists also concluded that CBD may be effective in treating existing acne.
CBD lotion and body bars also are effective in hydrating dry skin. The soothing properties of CBD help heal cracked skin, especially when using high-potency formulas. You can use it daily like you would any moisturizer.
Nearly everyone has experienced pain in some capacity, whether it’s because of a chronic health condition or temporary problem. Pain is a universal experience, and many people seek out pain relief in the form of pills. Reaching for CBD products instead can be a good idea for pain relief.
CBD tinctures taken orally or CBD lotion are both known for their pain-relieving qualities. Tinctures can be effective for internal pain, such as digestional pain, headaches, or joint pain. You can ingest tinctures by placing drops under your tongue, or by mixing your dosage in with your favorite drink, like hot tea.
High-potency CBD lotion or body bars, like those sold at Kenneth’s, are topicals that can decrease swelling and improve blood flow. They also can help alleviate back and neck pain, shin splints, and general aches and pains. Apply CBD lotion like you would any other medicated topical, focusing on problem areas where you want to experience relief.
Mental Health & Self Care
Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues should be taken just as seriously as physical pain. Sleeplessness is another big issue that plagues the Columbus, Ohio area. Unfortunately, medication for these problems can be expensive, addictive, and come with side effects.
CBD can help alleviate stress and anxiety and promote a better sleep schedule, thus improving mental health in its users. Scientists believe it has a similar effect on the brain as pharmaceutical antidepressants, by acting on the brain’s serotonin receptors, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood.
Chronic Conditions and Acute Diseases
A chronic condition is one that does not go away. People with these types of conditions seek medical treatment and prescription medications so they feel better and can function day-to-day. Acute diseases are those with a sudden onset, but have treatments that can lead to cures. It’s safe to say most people want to pay their doctor a visit for these, too.
Researchers have begun seeing benefits of using CBD for conditions like neurological disorders and cancer symptoms. While there is no proof yet that CBD cures these conditions, CBD may reduce symptoms, like muscle spasms, nerve pain, cancer-related pain, nausea, and vomiting.
Even though most CBD products contain low or trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, taking measured doses is important, especially considering certain products have lower or higher potencies.
The best CBD dosage for you, particularly for oral tinctures, depends on concentration, your body weight, desired effects, and your tolerance of the product.
Concentration refers to the strength of the CBD product. It is measured in milligrams (mg) and is different from dosage, which means the amount per serving. The bottles of great-tasting CBD tinctures we carry at Kenneth’s come in 500mg, 1000mg, 2000mg, and 4000mg concentrations. Larger numbers indicate a h2er CBD oil. Just like with medication, it’s important to always read the information panel on the label to determine the recommended dosage.
Your body weight plays an important role in how CBD may affect you. Heavier people usually need higher doses to experience CBD benefits. Lighter people, however, may get the same effects using a lower dose. Tolerance also plays a role. Frequent users may develop a tolerance, or you may naturally have a higher or lower tolerance to CBD.
Finally, consider the desired effect you want CBD to have on your body. Someone with severe pain or anxiety may need a higher dose to help find relief from their symptoms. Mild pains or conditions may only require a small dosage to help the user feel better.
Please know there is a risk of failing a drug test with the use of Full Spectrum CBD, which is the end result of the oil distillation process. Full spectrum products contain up to 0.3% THC, which is a small amount. Isolate-based products, however, are 100% free of THC. We carry both at Kenneth’s.
