3 letters are making a huge impact across mainstream headlines. They are CBD. This ingredient is being added to everything from lotions to cocktails. So, what has caused this huge wave of CBD products? Why has the world fallen in love with CBD? Kristen Coffield of the Culinary Cure stopped by Good Morning Washington and offered a crash course on all things CBD.

What Is CBD?

CBD comes from a plant that is categorized under the genus known as cannabis. The two most common plants classified under the cannabis umbrella are:

  • Hemp
  • Marijuana

Cannabis contains unique chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. In marijuana, the most abundant cannabinoid is THC. THC is responsible for the psychoactive feelings marijuana users report.

Hemp has extremely low levels of THC. Instead, its main cannabinoid is CBD. CBD doesn’t cause the body to feel high.

Instead, CBD acts as a strong antioxidant that has shown promise in alleviating pain, reducing bouts of anxiety and decreasing the number of spasmodic episodes a person may have. In addition, CBD exhibits strong anti-inflammatory properties that eclipse those of Vitamin C. This is why CBD is such a hot commodity for the health and beauty sector.

How to Use CBD Products?

Anytime you implement a new supplement into your routine, it is best to consult a physician. This is especially true when entering a market as new as CBD. Currently, CBD products are not federally regulated. While CBD products are deemed safe for consumption, there are no proper guidelines for recommended use.

When you use CBD products, Kristen suggests starting with a 1 mg to 3 mg serving size. It’s best to try out before bedtime, in the privacy of your own home. That way you can assess how your body reacts to using this form of therapy. From there, you can adjust, incorporating CBD into your morning routine…or anytime you see fit.

Serving size is a matter of preference. This particular area is where the waters get a bit murky for unregulated CBD products. Some companies may not disclose how many milligrams of CBD you are getting in each bite or drop. This makes choosing the correct serving size more difficult for the average consumer.

With so much uncertainty surrounding the CBD market, it is in your best interest to do some research before purchasing products. You want to choose a company that uses high-quality, organic ingredients optimized for the best results. Also, check to see what their serving suggestions are and if there are any additional active ingredients in the formula.

Using CBD Products In Your Everyday Life

Part of the fun with CBD is that you can implement these products into your everyday life unlike any other supplement on the market. One of the best ways to use CBD is in your food!

Cannabinoids love fat. Fat absorbs these nutrients. In turn, when we digest CBD-rich foods, our body absorbs the fat and the CBD inside of it. Anytime you can incorporate CBD with fat, you are going to increase the benefits of your supplement.

With CBD tinctures, you just need to a few milligrams to some of your favorite snacks, apps and meals.  

Some amazing ways to infuse CBD into your diet include:

  • Chia seed pudding with cinnamon and CBD
  • Lavender chai latte with almond milk and CBD
  • Macadamia, cacao, coconut bliss balls
  • Guacamole

Our body is designed with a special endocannabinoid system. When we consume plant-based molecules from hemp, receptors within the endocannabinoid system interact with the CBD. Based on the reaction of your system, some of the symptoms that caused you to seek support from CBD may subside.

Why Choose CBD Products?

CBD is such an easy supplement to work into your regimen. Why wouldn’t you? It’s a great way to start your day off relaxed, power through it pain-free and rest easily at night.

For those who turn to NSAIDs for pain relief but dislike the side effects, CBD may be a viable option for you. CBD is not known to have any gastrointestinal side effects. In fact, CBD has shown to fight off some of those ailments!

As CBD products become readily available, you will witness cannabinoids popping up all over the health and wellness market. Expect to see CBD in everything from skincare to pet treats. Just be sure to research each company extensively. You want to reap the benefits of CBD, not open the door for more issues! Choose a brand you can trust like Kristen Coffield. Opt for Joy Organics.

What Our Clients Say.


"My caretaker can hardly believe what she sees in my mobility. I have not slowed down. Every day since taking the softgels I have been walking without arthritic pain. It indeed is like a miracle."
- Don


    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.


    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
