    Date: 05-24-2022

    CBD has been all the rage lately, but what exactly is it? Why are people using it, and what’s with all the hype? CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid with so many uses that have become so popular recently. As CBD comes in so many different delivery methods, people have been using it in so many different ways for relief from things like pain, inflammation, anxiety and depression, brain fog, and more. In this article, we will talk about what CBD is, how people are using it for relief, and where to find it.




    What Exactly Is CBD?


    CBD is short for cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that is found in marijuana, or the hemp plant. In an article by Mayo Clinic, they describe CBD as a chemical found in marijuana. Cannabinoids are a group of plant chemicals, or plant substances, that are found in the cannabis plant. According to the NIH, there are over 100 cannabinoids that have been found, but other research suggests that there are closer to 124 cannabinoids in existence so far. Cannabinoids have many different uses and benefits, and cannabidiol, or CBD is just one of those cannabinoids. CBD is the second most prevalent cannabinoid in the marijuana plant, next to THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, says an article from Harvard Health. Unlike THC, CBD does not come with psychoactive effects, or a head high.

    CBD can be found in many different delivery methods, such as sublingual oils, edibles, flower and vapes, topicals, and even capsules. The different delivery methods make it easy for anyone to take or enjoy for relief. There is an option for everyone and that makes it easy to become part of your everyday routine. 


    Using CBD for Relief


    If you are wondering why someone might adopt this as part of their everyday routine, that’s because it can have a wealth of benefits. CBD has been used effectively for seizures and epilepsy and has also been used for other neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. It has been used to help with relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and other extremely painful conditions. Many people use it for relief from mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, and so many other mental health illnesses that plague our population. Other benefits of this cannabinoid include helping with sleep issues, brain fog, focus, and attention, and helps with so many more conditions. 


    Many people use CBD to find relief from different conditions, as well as for self-care and mental health. As there are so many different ways to use CBD, it can be a great use for self-care. Things like CBD bath bombs, dark chocolate infused with CBD, a hot cup of CBD tea or other beverage, and even a personal aromatherapy pen with CBD are ways that people use CBD for self-care. As CBD can produce calming and relaxing effects, it can be the perfect tool to use for self-care. Whether you are a parent and need “me time”, are stressed from work, or are tired from daily life, self-care and CBD may help and may be things you want to consider. 




    In addition to health conditions and self-care, CBD has also been used in skincare. According to Medical News Today, due to its potential anti-inflammatory properties, CBD may be useful for treating many skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis. You can find CBD in many different skincare products lately and for good reason. As stated in a Healthline article by an esthetician, “CBD is an incredibly effective ingredient in skincare due to its being a powerful antioxidant and providing anti-inflammatory benefits.” According to a 2014 study, CBD may have an anti-inflammatory effect on sebocytes, which are the skin cells that produce sebum. This indicates that CBD can help regulate oil production and help calm acne. Other research suggests that CBD can also help with dry and dehydrated skin. 


    CBD can be a perfect tool for finding relief from a number of different conditions, as well as used in self-care and skincare. As CBD is on the rise, it can be found almost anywhere for purchase. Your local nutrition store, the gas station down the street, and even online merchants sell CBD now. But is that the best place to find it? Let's find out.
