CBD: A Short Health History

CBD, short for cannabidiol, has a rich history rooted in ancient medicinal practices. Its origins trace back to ancient civilizations, who utilized cannabis plants for various health purposes. However, it wasn't until the 20th century that scientists began isolating and studying CBD's therapeutic potential. In recent years, CBD has gained widespread popularity for its myriad of health benefits, especially for those seeking a more natural alternative to prescription medications. (It's important to note that individual responses to CBD can vary, and consulting with a healthcare professional before incorporating CBD into your wellness regimen is advisable, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications.)

As legal restrictions on cannabis products have eased in many parts of the world, CBD-infused products have flooded the market, offering consumers a wide array of options to incorporate this natural remedy into their wellness routines.

The Importance of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

So how does CBD actually work? The human body contains an intricate network known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a crucial role in regulating a wide range of cognitive functions like mood, sleep, appetite, immune response, etc. 

CBD interacts with the ECS by influencing cannabinoid receptors, primarily CB1 and CB2. By modulating the activity of these receptors, CBD may help restore balance within the body, contributing to overall health and well-being.

The Best Ways to Take CBD

As interest in CBD continues to grow, so does the array of consumption methods available. But with so many options, how can you ensure you're harnessing CBD's therapeutic potential in the healthiest way possible? Let’s explore the top methods for incorporating CBD into your wellness routine, backed by science and tailored to support your overall health and well-being.

CBD Oils and Tinctures: Precise and Potent

One of the most popular and versatile ways to consume CBD is through oils and tinctures. These products typically come in dropper bottles, allowing for precise dosing and easy administration. CBD tinctures are often taken sublingually, where the liquid is held under the tongue for faster absorption into the bloodstream. This method bypasses the digestive system, offering faster relief and efficient utilization of CBD's benefits.

For those looking for a full-spectrum CBD experience, consider incorporating lost range.® Full-Spectrum CBD Tincture sourced from Colorado-grown organic hemp. Our tinctures contains many cannabinoids beyond CBD, as well as naturally occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, and proteins. Experience the entourage effect with our full-spectrum formula, available in natural or organic peppermint flavor and containing less than 0.3% THC.

We also offer a CBD Isolate Tincture, which provides a calming sense of relaxation, focus, and balance. An optimal choice for those looking for a product with zero trace of THC. (All our products are 3rd-party tested and contain less than .3% THC.) Our Isolate tinctures contain only two ingredients, medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) coconut oil and CBD isolate. Available in natural or organic peppermint flavor. 

Edibles: Delicious and Discreet

For those who prefer a more palatable option, CBD-infused edibles, like premium CBD gummies,

are a popular choice. All our CBD Gummies are handmade, vegan (no animal gelatin), 100% natural and pack a powerful punch of premium CBD. Not only are they tasty and convenient, but they also provide a discreet way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine on-the-go.

The Healthiest Way to Reap the Benefits of CBD?

The results are in. Spoiler alert… It's a trick question! There is no “best” way to consume CBD products. The real answer is: it depends on the consumer. 

Sublingual is best for those seeking fast and effective relief. The chemicals in CBD diffuse into the blood vessels beneath the tongue. As such, the sublingual route bypasses the first-pass metabolism of the liver, and the body rapidly absorbs the drug into circulation. Evidence suggests that using CBD sublingually produces superior bioavailability than oral forms of CBD.

Edibles are great for those who don't like the taste of CBD and want a convenient and tasty way to feel the effects. However, most CBD Gummies you find on the market are loaded with corn syrup, dyes, artificial flavors, and gelatin. Fear not! lost range.® CBD gummies are vegan, sustainably sourced and made with 100% natural ingredients.

Topical CBD products are best for those who want targeted relief without consuming the compound. Using topical CBD is easy — apply the product to the affected skin area and massage it until it's fully absorbed. The main advantage of CBD lotions is that they can be applied directly to the skin, allowing the CBD to be absorbed directly into the affected area. This can be particularly helpful for localized discomfort. 

Consistency is Key, Quality is King

Regardless of the method, the quality of the CBD you chose and consistency is paramount to experiencing the full benefits. Incorporating CBD into your daily routine allows the compound to accumulate in your system, optimizing its therapeutic effects over time.

To maximize the efficacy of CBD products, consider the following tips:

  • Proper Storage: Store CBD in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain its potency.
  • Sublingual Administration: For faster absorption, hold CBD oil under the tongue for 15-30 seconds before swallowing.
  • Start Low, Go Slow: Begin with a low dosage and gradually increase until you achieve the desired effects. Each individual responds differently to CBD, so finding the right dosage is crucial.

In addition to consistency, the quality of the products you choose can make all the difference. Low-quality CBD products may contain harmful additives, pesticides, or solvents that can jeopardize your health. Not to mention, they also may not deliver the wellness benefits you're looking for.

High-quality CBD should be sourced from organically grown hemp and processed

using clean and safe methods. This helps ensure the final product is free from contaminants, such as heavy metals, mold, or residual solvents. Purity is the name of the game, and it's what you want for the best CBD experience.

Moreover, high-quality CBD products are always 3rd-party tested to help ensure consistency in their composition and potency. Inferior products may vary from batch to batch, making it difficult to find the right dosage. After all, you want to know what you're putting in and on your body. 

To help ensure you’re buying a quality product, make sure the company displays these key marks:

  • 100% field-grown hemp extract
  • Enhanced bioavailability
  • Non-GMO
  • Sustainably farmed
  • Filler-free
  • Pesticide-free
  • Allergen-Free
  • Hemp sourced in the USA, preferably Colorado.

The healthiest way to take CBD involves understanding its benefits, choosing the appropriate consumption method, finding the best quality products, and maintaining consistency in usage. Whatever you prefer, CBD offers a natural and effective solution for promoting overall wellness.
