If you don't take care of your health - Who will?
Information on chronic disease how you might avoid them or reduce their impact
Perhaps you are not getting the pain relief you need from NSAID's and you either do not want to use opioids, or you do not want to start them in the first place. You do not want to use marijuana and have learned that CBD (cannabidiol) has none, and could help with your pain. Now how do you acquire CBD? There are a lot of CBD products that you want to stay away from. Let us help you.
We have researched a number of suppliers, and in the process used some CBD from sources we would not want you to use. There are a large number of suppliers who are simply packaging product that is not properly sourced or processed. You will want to acquire product from companies that have developed a good reputation and are not in the business to simply make a quick profit. Too many products on the market are from low grade hemp and are extracted in a process that does not result in a high quality product. These vendors are typically selling a low grade isolate product.
You might ask where the raw hemp product comes from. Hemp is a very common plant that grows all over the world and has many industrial uses. In many places hemp is not welcome and is commonly referred to as a weed. Hemp that is grown for industrial purposes most likely does not include high grade cannabinoids. A hemp that produces high grade cannabinoids needs to grow in the right kind of soil and in the right kind of weather. Too many providers of CBD use hemp that is not grown in ideal soil and weather to produce high grade cannabinoid. The most ideal provider would be one who is vertically integrated. One who grows the hemp used in the product.
The most reputable suppliers of CBD most often do not offer a isolate product. It is however a product that many might believe is the best as it is the very simple form of CBD, therefore and isolate. An isolate does not include any of the other oils in the hemp plant. While there may be some pain relieving benefits from CBD isolate, one should not expect the benefits one can experience from a "FULL SPECTRUM" product.
A full spectrum product is one that includes extract from the whole hemp plant. Hemp, not to be confused with it's relative marijuana, has a large number of phytonutrients. While the end product is commonly referred to as CBD, the full spectrum hemp product includes many other cannabinoids that improve the efficacy of CBD. This is accomplished by using all of the plant; the flower, the stems, etc. The more common ones are referred to as CBC, CBG and CBN. It is highly recommended that you use a full spectrum product, not the lower cost, lower effective isolate products.
The process that a CBD provider uses to extract the cannabinoids can have an affect on the quality of the end product. Many, if not most, use a process that degrades the efficacy of the content of the plant. A extraction process should be a mild, non-damaging process to insure the highest quality phytonutrients.
Most reputable providers have their products analyzed by a third party to insure the accuracy of the ingredients. Some providers will include the lot number of the product and some will offer the opportunity to trace the lot number.
Finally, we might once again mention the reputation of the provider. One can often determine a providers reputation by reviewing their website. A quality provider will provide a significant amount of information about not only CBD but also about the process involved in the product they sell.
Someone striving to enjoy the later years of life by being healthy, happy and wise.
