Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) may be a recent find for scientists, but it sure is essential for our health. Controlling mental variables such as mood and appetite, and physical variables like pain, bone health and immune system response, a balanced ECS is key for good, all-round health. In a nutshell, CBD is an ECS regulator, and can be used as a health supplement in the form of CBD vape juice.
These are one of the most popular (and effective) choices for arthritis and other forms of localized pain and inflammation. Since the skin acts as an excellent semi-permeable membrane that “let’s the good stuff and keeps the bad stuff out,” rubbing CBD-infused creams into the affected area has proved to be quite effective in terms of both pain and inflammation reduction.
Hemptation Infused Goods scores points for innovation thanks to its unusual CBD oil-infused honey, which is harvested from hives in Vermont and, according to the company, has a “slightly spicy bite.” That said, customers who prefer not to get their CBD hit on toast may instead opt for one of Hemptation’s similarly novel bath bombs, designed to either invigorate or help unwind when the user settles in for a soak. More traditional types might be relieved to hear, however, that the company also offers sublingual CBD oils in dropper bottles, 99-percent pure slabs of CBD isolate and wax – the latter made from a whole extract of the hemp plant. Furthermore, Hemptation arguably takes customer service to the next level by offering in-person consultations about CBD, available to those living in Massachusetts or Vermont for a $60 fee. Anyone further afield, meanwhile, can take advantage of a similar but more inexpensive service by either telephone or live chat online.
Also, please note that CBD should NOT be misunderstood as a miracle cure — and no reputable CBD seller or manufacturer should ever claim otherwise. Furthermore, if you are using CBD for weight loss purposes, don’t expect it to work if you eat fast food three times a day and your exercise routine consists of struggling to twist the cap off your bottle of beer!
Anti-catabolic – If you’re well-versed in the field of bodybuilding, you’ll know that being catabolic is a major no-no for maximizing tissue growth. Unfortunately, our cortisol levels rise in response to stress, whether that’s from an intense workout or from day-to-day environmental stresses. This is a major problem as cortisol is a catabolic hormone that reduces protein synthesis and prevents tissue growth.
