How Does CBD Make You Feel?
For those who are new to hemp-based products, welcome. There are probably millions of questions that are running through your mind. Perhaps none is more prominent than “how does CBD make you feel?” The CBD market is expected to rake in around $22 billion each year 2022. Knowing this, companies are making a number of unique hemp-based products. CBD is popping up in everything from lotions to toothpaste to dog treats. So, let’s give you the scoop about how you can expect to feel.
Will CBD Get You High?
Let’s start with the elephant in the room. Hemp is a member of the cannabis family; however, it doesn’t have the same molecular structure as its cousin marijuana. Just as you behave differently than your family members, hemp and marijuana have differing effects.
Marijuana is a female cannabis plant. Due to its molecular structure, the plant produces an abundance of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is shown to have a psychoactive effect on the system. Marijuana doesn’t have a high concentration of CBD unless it is specifically bred for this quality.
On the other side, hemp has an abundance of cannabidiol (CBD). This male plant of the cannabis family contains low concentrations of THC. Under federal law, all industrial hemp must test for 0.3% THC or less. Due to its low levels, those who use CBD products from hemp shouldn’t experience any psychoactive side effects.
At Joy Organics, we strive to avoid any of this confusion. We ensure all members of the family can use our products, including children and pets, by removing any traces of THC from our products. Therefore, you can use Joy Organics CBD products with peace of mind. For those with any concerns about THC concentrations, check the lot number on the bottom of your Joy Organics product. That number corresponds with your product’s lab report.
All lab reports are posted on our website. All you need to do is type in your lot number. From there, you can see any active ingredients that were detected prior to bottling and shipping to your door.
Millions are turning to CBD because individual particles within the plant mirror similar particles that our system produces. Within the hemp plant, there are 113 known compounds called cannabinoids. Early research suggests that these cannabinoids mimic the endogenous compounds our system produces known as endocannabinoids.
Both hemp and human-produced cannabinoids play a pivotal role in how the endocannabinoid system functions. Comprehending the functions of the endocannabinoid system will help you gain a sense of what to expect when you use CBD for the first time.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Throughout our body are receptors. These receptors have minuscule hairs that survey the lay of the land. Any sign of imbalance and the nerve endings on these receptors send messages throughout the system.
Depending on what the message is, and the location of the receptor, the mind will interpret the message and its threat level. Based on this analysis, it will manifest symptoms that may impede on our everyday lives.
Any time our body encounters what it considers to be an imbalance, its instinct is to release endocannabinoids into the system. These endocannabinoids seek out the distraught receptors.
Enzymes in the system help break down the endocannabinoids so that they are activated to influence the cannabinoid receptors. This chemical reaction ultimately changes the communication from the distressed receptors back to the brain.
As we age, endocannabinoid production starts to slow down. There are several reasons for these changes that include poor diet, prescriptions or health-related issues. That’s why many people are finding support and balance with CBD products.
How Does it Feel to Use CBD?
Now that you understand CBD’s relationship to your body, you can start to wrap your head around how it will make you feel, but the answer is still quite complicated. After all, feelings are subjective.
The way CBD makes you feel is as unique as the reasons you decided to try it. The type of CBD product you use can also alter the experience. Let’s take a look at some of these scenarios.
CBD to Support Calm
Some of the most popular uses for CBD are when people are out in public, have to make a big presentation or deal with a big decision. When using CBD to calm down, they often describe it as a temporary relief from their problems.
If you are someone who replays scenarios over in your head, after taking CBD during a stressful moment, you might notice that you’re not fixated on the situation as much. Instead, you might find yourself more focused on whatever activity you are doing in the present!
CBD for Sleep
One of the reasons Joy Smith created Joy Organics was because she was looking for all-natural ways to support her sleep cycle. Joy knows firsthand that missing one too many nights of sleep can hinder productivity, beat down your immune system and transform you into quite the cranky pants.
For Joy, using broad spectrum hemp extract helped her get ready for sleep at the end of the day. That’s why she decided to create her own line of sleep products. She experienced firsthand the support CBD can offer in regulating sleep patterns.
To further enhance the potential of CBD for sleep, Joy Organics released CBD softgels fortified with melatonin. This formula is a game-changer for people who regularly struggle with getting to sleep. The CBD helps to achieve homeostasis throughout the system while the melatonin can help replenish what you may be lacking due to excessive cortisol production.
CBD for Energy
CBD is all about balance. In some cases, it can help you sleep; in others, it may support your focus and energy. Whether you need a midday pick-me-up, a boost in the gym or some brainpower for studying, CBD brings the support.
We use broad spectrum CBD oil in our Happy Berry Energy Drink Mix. Just add this all-natural powder to 20 ounces of water and you’ll be on your way. You’ll notice a little extra pep in your step with the wide range of micronutrients in our formula. From B-vitamins to amino acids to broad spectrum hemp extract, this is an energy drink you can feel good about.
CBD for Post-Workout Recovery
Working out puts a lot of wear and tear on our muscles, leaving us sore. For those who struggle to get out of bed the day after exercising, CBD may be able to come to the rescue.
One of the most effective ways to support post-workout recovery is by using CBD Softgels with Curcumin. Along with sleep issues, shoulder discomfort was the other catalyst for Joy to seek out CBD products.
In addition to broad spectrum hemp extract, Joy also noticed that curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, helped her deal with her joint issues. That’s why she decided to combine these two beneficial ingredients when crafting her formula.
CBD for Beauty
We all want to feel good and most of us want to look good too. For some, looking your best is part of feeling your best. Many are seeing great results by adding hemp care into their beauty regimen.
Our skin is a clear indicator of how we’re feeling inside. This glimpse inside is made possible due to the skin’s endocannabinoid system. There are also cannabinoid receptors throughout the body’s largest organ. That’s why CBD is popping up in many beauty products.
In fact, Joy Organics has its own all-natural skincare line:
As you can see, there are many ways to customize your beauty routine to incorporate CBD. If you want to feel good about the health of your skin, CBD may lend the support you are looking for.
