CBD seems to be everywhere these days — or maybe it seems that way to me since I live in LA. We keep hearing about it, but what is it (and what is CBD oil)? CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a “non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid and one of over 70+ naturally occurring compounds found in the hemp plant…Unlike THC, CBD does not cause any feeling of being ‘high,’ which has been the driving factor behind its legalization across the United States when derived from hemp.”
These compounds in Cannabidiol “play an active role in the function of our immune and central nervous system…Our bodies have a natural Endocannabinoid system (ECS) which has receptors that these compounds fit into, thus utilizing cannabinoids to support, maintain and regulate our physical wellbeing.” You can read even more here on the Vitagenne website.
All that being said, what do you use CBD for? It’s great for helping so many different facets of your health, from anxiety to sleeplessness to muscle pain. I’ve recently been trying the Vitagenne line of CBD products and have come to find that they really are so effective and a great, natural approach to wellness. Let me tell you about the products I’ve been trying out for the past couple of weeks and what I like them for!
My current favorite is the Pure Sleep Capsules for bed. I don’t always sleep the best due to weird sleep schedules or anxiety,or really it could be many factors. But when I’ve taken one of these before bed, I’ve seemed to have a more solid night of sleep. Without a good night’s sleep, my whole next day can be rough, but taking one of these before a big day has been really helpful. Plus, I don’t feel groggy or tired in the morning.
For Muscle Pain
Another Vitagenne product I’ve loved using is the CBD Cooling Cream as it’s perfect for my tense shoulders after working on a computer all day long. I like to rub it into my neck and shoulders before bed and it’s got such a relaxing and cooling effect on my muscles. This has quickly become a part of my nighttime ritual.
The other product I’ve been trying is the Hemp CBD Oil Supplement, which is unflavored and you put under your tongue or mix in a drink. This has been a great product to help relax when I’m feeling overwhelmed or anxious. And it’s so easy to consume!
Overall, I love all of the products for different things. Find out about the rest of the Vitagenne line on their website.
