What is CBD and which CBD products should you start with?

CBD is an all-natural ingredient of a legal cannabis plant called hemp. Hemp is a cannabis Sativa variety different from Marijuana which contains too much THC and just around 10% CBD. Hemp is legal and safe to use because it may contain more than 20% CBD and less than 1% THC. Under these conditions, most countries accept CBD coming from hemp as a safe ingredient and legal. So, first of all, you do not have to worry about CBD’s naturality and safety at all. You can buy CBD products without having to worry about possible negative side effects.

We recommend you start with CBD oil because of its better bioavailability. Switzerland is well-known for CBD products and offers both quality and quantity. The Swiss have done an amazing job in regulating all the laws regarding medical cannabis and are leaders when it comes to producing and selling these kinds of products. If you are using other products though, you can talk with your doctor first because CBD oil will not act the same when taken alone or alongside other supplements. Above we mentioned the factors that affect our focus and energy and below we will explain CBD’s role in managing these causes.

CBD helps against anxiety and stress

It is a known fact that stress and anxiety may be the main source of other health issues. It is also a fact that stress affects our concentration and makes us feel fatigued. Anxiety disorders can take energy from us and make us lose focus. When it comes to stress and anxiety disorders CBD oil can help reduce these symptoms and improve mood. This results in saving more energy and improving concentration.

CBD can reduce post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms and not only. Research shows that CBD also helps with social anxiety disorders and this means that indirectly improves focus and saves energy for us. When we add here also the fact that CBD interacts with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system and raises the serotonin levels it makes it a perfect all-natural supplement when it comes to fighting stress and anxiety disorders. You do not need to rush when taking CBD oil and need to have some patience before seeing the results. Some people see the change within the first days but some need weeks because they probably have not met the perfect dosage for them.

CBD improves sleep and helps with pain

Another factor you should consider when it comes to energy and focus is sleep. We say this because those who lack enough qualitative sleep have less energy and feel tired. In addition to that these people lack focus or concentration during the day when not getting enough sleep during the night. There are sleep disorders that CBD fights and help people sleep better. As a result, when taking CBD oil daily for some time you will not only regulate your sleeping cycle but also feel more energetic and concentrate better on your daily tasks.

Pain is another thing that can affect our concentration and cause fatigue and yet again CBD can help. It can help because of its numerous therapeutic properties such as anti-inflammation. More research is needed on this part but what is important is that CBD will not harm you in any form.

What should we consider before taking CBD to improve energy and focus?

Well, deciding on a particular CBD product is not an easy task. There are tons of products you can find online or in shops everywhere. Also, CBD comes in many forms and not just oil, and even oil can be of many types such as broad-spectrum CBD oil, full-spectrum, or CBD isolate. You do not have to know about every one of these products but let us inform you a bit about some of them:

  • CBD isolate products mean pure CBD products without other cannabinoids or terpenes which are also compounds in hemp plants that give the flavor.
  • Full-spectrum CBD product is a product that contains all cannabinoids present in hemp plant or other cannabis plants, including the famous THC(tetrahydrocannabinol, less than 1%) which is known for causing addiction and getting users “high”. It may contain terpenes.
  • Broad-spectrum CBD is a CBD product such as broad-spectrum CBD oil which contains most cannabinoids with important exceptions such as THC. This means CBD isolate and broad-spectrum are safer than full-spectrum CBD products.

When you finally go for a product and buy it, you can then decide on starting dosage and other useful tips.

In conclusion, when it comes to dosage, start with a small amount of CBD every day. After a week reassess and look for increasing the dosage if you have not met your wanted results yet. Do this gradually week after week until you find the perfect fit for your body and mind.
