CBD can be used for many different challenges, diseases, disorders as well as the opportunity to have more peace in your body and mind. Often people associate people who use CBD products in their daily lives, to people who are all struggling with incredibly big problems, which is very misleading. CBD can of course easily be used to “fight bigger problems”, but also as a supplement to an otherwise well-functioning body and mind. CBD has a large number of vitamins that can help strengthen the immune system. Are you interested in knowing more about what CBD can actually be used for and how it can potentially help you? Then you have come to the right place!
Are there many CBD products, and are they all the same?
CBD can help with a number of different things, which can be divided into two categories: mental and physical challenges. In addition, there are many different CBD products that can be used in very different ways. You probably already know about most CBD products, but just to clarify, below is a list of the most used and popular products the market has to offer at the moment.
- CBD oil
- CBD lotion also called CBD creme
- CBD for your e-cigarette, i.e. a CBD e-liquid
- CBD for animals (pets)
- CBD edibles, i.e. food and drinks that contain CBD.
Under each product group there are of course a lot of different products, strengths, tastes – you name it. Since there are many CBD related products, there are also many different ways to use them. In addition to this, they all have their strengths and weaknesses. For example, if you have a lot of pain during a certain period, then CBD oil may be the right choice for you. If you are struggling with severe eczema or acne, then a strong CBD cream or CBD lotion is probably what you should look for. This basically means that depending on your given situation, one or more CBD products may be helpful. Furthermore, CBD is available in many different variants with different strengths. As a good rule of thumb, it is always a good idea to start with CBD products that have a relatively low strength and then move up in strength until you find the perfect combination that can help meet your needs.
In what situations can CBD help?
CBD can help in a variety of different situations and if we decided to described each one, this blog would quickly become way too long. Instead, below you can find the most normal situations in which CBD products can help. Again, it is important to remember that all people and their given situation are unique, but through a lot of studies and research, researchers have been able to point out some very specific challenges / diseases / disorders on which CBD has proven extremely effective. As mentioned above, there are two main categories, mental state/condition and physical state/condition.
- General nervousness
- Insomnia (difficulty sleeping)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Eating disorders
- Eczema, irritated and dry skin, acne, etc.
Just to clarify, it is important to mention that we are aware that several mental and physical conditions overlap and it can therefore be a challenge to divide them 100% correctly. If we look at eating disorders, for example, it is a condition that almost always takes place in the head, but has a huge effect on how the body feels and looks. Equally, severe pain or constant nausea can cause depression and anxiety. Therefore, it is important not to categorize these situations too much when we talk about “conditions, disorders, challenges, diseases”, etc. Instead, focus on the fact that CBD related products can actually help you to a better and healthier everyday life.
Frequently asked questions
Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to CBD and what it can actually be used for. If you have some very specific questions, it is recommended that you first do your own research and then contact a few different places for answers. Also, take advantage of your network, if you know someone who has used CBD products before they can help you in the right direction.
- Can I live normally if I use CBD?
The short answer is yes, you can. It is always relevant to ask how a potential new medicine (though alternative) can affect your everyday life and your routines. Basically, you can live a completely ordinary life where you can drive a car, nurture your interests, etc. CBD is not a euphoric drug and therefore you can safely use it in your everyday life. You do not have to worry about whether it can have an effect on, for example, your driving or your reaction abilities. CBD will hopefully make your daily life easier and more comfortable, because the pains or challenges you may have, are reduced or disappear completely.
- Now that CBD can be used for many things, how do I know what is right for me and my situation?
It is entirely something you have to find out for yourself through a thorough research followed by experimenting with your CBD products. If we for example take a look at CBD oil, then the oil often has an incredibly wide spectrum which means it contains many different vitamins and enzymes that can help in many very different areas. Therefore, it is up to you to find out what works for you. The best advice we can give is that you yourself first have to figure out what needs you have and can CBD potentially help you. There is no point in half-heartedly going into a potential CBD consumption if you are not sure what it is actually going to create of value for you. It can be anything from just wanting a little more peace of mind and body before going to bed, to extreme pain during a course of illness. Listen to your body and what it tells you, and once you have made the decision that you want to try CBD, experiment (remember to start small) and try it out. CBD products have proven to be extremely helpful, so CBD can most likely help you too.
- Can I become addicted to my CBD medication?
Addiction itself is an extremely powerful condition that can change our behavior, the way we think and act and how our brain is stimulated. Back in 2018, the WHO (World Health Organization) conducted a study that resulted in CBD showing no signs of an addiction or abuse being created. The study further showed that CBD is not addictive but instead actually works with the body and mind to find a perfect balance. That said, it is of course important to keep in mind that if you should have experienced incredibly good results when using CBD and from one day to the next stop, then it will obviously have an effect on your given situation. No addiction is the same, and people react differently to how one’s body receives as well as withdraws medication. Therefore, one must be aware of his or her given situation. Furthermore, if you want to stop using CBD, it is recommended that you step down bit by bit instead of stopping completely from one day to other.
All of this being said and done, what can CBD actually be used for? The answer is: a lot. CBD is a substance with an incredible base that can be used in many situations. CBD can potentially be the right one for you and your needs, but as we mentioned earlier, make sure to align your goals and needs, to figure out if CBD is right for you.
