    The effects of CBD and the golden rules you need to know when using CBD

    • When using cannabidiol products for the first time, it is advised to use the lowest recommended dose. If you want a stronger effect, you can increase the dose over time until you achieve the desired effect.
    • The benefits of cannabidiol are slowly being revealed. Most people experience the long-term effects of CBD within 1-2 weeks of starting use.
    • Not all CBD oils are created equal. According to composition and effect, they are divided into full-spectrum CBD oil, broad-spectrum CBD oil and isolate. Those who want the most intense effect choose a full-spectrum oil or an intermediate variant, a broad-spectrum oil. Meanwhile, the isolate will appeal to people looking for a very mild CBD effect.
    • Cannabidiol has practically no side effects, but a small number of people may experience such short-term symptoms as dry mouth, loss of appetite, diarrhea, digestive problems.
    • Choose only high-quality cannabidiol oil that has all the necessary quality certificates. Take a look at the product's country of origin, production conditions.

    The effects of CBD and the 7 benefits of CBD

    These are the areas where CBD has the strongest effects:

    1. Help in alleviating the symptoms of oncological diseases

    Although CBD cannot be used as a substitute for cancer treatment, this product is very useful in alleviating the unpleasant symptoms of oncological diseases, such as loss of appetite, physical weakness, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, which are often caused by treatment. CBD also strengthens the immune system, which is severely weakened after chemotherapy.

    Initial studies suggest that cannabidiol may have other benefits for cancer patients. It is hypothesized that this cannabinoid can reduce tumor size and significantly slow down the spread of cancer cells. However, it is important to note that science will confirm this in the future. So far, not enough detailed research has been done on this topic, although the first results are promising.

    1. Beneficial effects of CBD for athletes. 

    Whether you're new to working out to tone up or are a die-hard sports fan, you can experience fatigue and post-workout fatigue during exercise and sports.

    People with an active lifestyle will definitely enjoy cannabidiol products. They speed up the body's recovery and recovery processes after training and will help you return to the gym the next day without feeling extreme fatigue and muscle pain.

    1. Benefits for heart function

    Some studies suggest that CBD may benefit the heart and circulatory system by lowering blood pressure. High blood pressure is a problem in many people's lives, causing much more serious and dangerous diseases and complications, such as heart attack or stroke.

    Cannabidiol can lower high blood pressure, which will help strengthen the heart and keep it healthy. CBD can also help maintain healthy, even blood pressure, improve circulation, and maintain good blood vessel health. It is an excellent tool to significantly reduce the risk of heart attack and other diseases.

    Doctors say you don't really need to have heart-related problems to start using CBD. It is also an excellent preventive measure that can protect against diseases in the future. Unfortunately, in our country, deaths from cardiovascular diseases are one of the most common causes of death, so Lithuanians should really consider using cannabidiol to improve heart function.

    1. CBD effect and help in relieving various pains

    Hemp plants have been known since ancient times as a pain reliever. Recently, it became clear that one of the most important components of hemp responsible for the aforementioned effect is precisely CBD. Once in the body, cannabidiol has been shown to bind to the body's naturally occurring biological endocannabinoid system (ECS). It participates in many processes in the body: from appetite regulation, hormone activity, to pain relief. CBD oil interacts with the EKS to help block pain receptors, thereby reducing physical discomfort and pain.

    CBD can be taken orally in some countries, but in others like Lithuania - only externally. It is perfect for alleviating various types of physical ailments: muscle/tendon strain, back pain, shoulder pain. Also, symptoms of chronic diseases: pain caused by arthritis, diabetes, oncological diseases.

    The effect of cannabidiol can be safer and healthier than pain relievers because it does not cause physical dependence and does not have many other side effects.

    1. Support for brain activity

    Another positive effect of CBD is that it can improve brain function by regulating dopamine levels in the body. Dopamine is a natural chemical compound in the brain responsible for pleasurable physical and mental sensations. Too much or too little of it prevents brain cells from functioning properly, can cause certain diseases such as Parkinson's, depression, eating disorders.

    CBD in the body can help regulate the production and release of dopamine, while improving brain function, improving mood, and increasing productivity.

    1. Energy Surge

    Cannabidiol has been shown to help increase energy levels. Many people say that this substance improves mood, well-being and gives new strength.

    Really for good reason: as we mentioned, CBD binds to the endocannabinoid system and helps stimulate processes in the body so that the body has more energy. You can take cannabidiol every morning or before your workout and it will definitely boost your energy levels and improve your mood.

    1. Formula for better sleep

    CBD is rightly considered an ideal tool for those who want to improve the quality of sleep. Many studies show that it helps people to go to bed at the same time and then wake up at the same time every morning.

    When CBD is used 1-2 hours before bedtime, this product effectively helps fight insomnia and makes the night's rest much more efficient and restful than usual. Read more about this topic in the article: "CBD for sleep: a tool that helps millions".

    Cannabidiol is becoming an indispensable product for many people to combat pain, improve sleep or gain more energy. It is true that when using CBD, the most important thing is to choose a proven product produced on organic hemp farms and use according to the manufacturer's recommendations. It is then that all the beneficial effects of CBD, scientifically studied and tested in practice, will be revealed!
