Physical fitness and longevity are the essential ingredients in living a happy and active life. Taking care of your health with CBD should be your priority among others in your investment portfolio. Here’s why…

Now more than ever is a great time to invest in your health. With the world opening back up, people are preoccupied with getting their sense of normalcy back. What they don’t realize is that if you neglect your health, even all the money in the world cannot save you if your health collapses. By taking personal responsibility for your own health and well-being, you are decreasing your risk of developing ailments. And nobody likes ailments.

Here are the reasons why investing in good health is one of the best forms of investments you can make.

CBD & Its Healing Elements

Cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments. CBD is one of 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. 

Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. This means it causes the sensation of getting high. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive, which is why CBD is an appealing option for those who are looking to invest in their health and find relief from pain without the mind-altering effects of THC. (Note: All our CBD products are less than 0.3% THC).

According to research, one of the benefits of CBD is that cannabinoids synergize and help support humans’ built-in Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It was in 1992 that scientists discovered that the ECS plays a direct role in homeostasis, which regulates every metabolic process in the body, such as pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, immune function, and sleep, as well as other processes. Even more interesting is that muscle and fat tissue also utilize these receptors to control their processes.

In other words, CBD communicates with our body’s main command center to keep things running as they should!  Here’s a look at some of the ways investing in CBD can help you in the long run.

Pain Management

Cannabis has been used to treat pain since as far back as 2900 B.C. Pain is something that all of us have endured in our lives. When we’re young and experience it with our very first hard fall or when we’re older and suffer from chronic pain. Pain is a signal from your nervous system that something may be wrong. It’s an unpleasant feeling, like a prick, a tingle, a sting, a burn or even a constant ache.

More recently, scientists have discovered that certain components of cannabis, including CBD, are responsible for its pain-relieving effects. The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating a variety of functions, including sleep, appetite, pain sensation, and immune system response.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, anecdotally, some people with arthritis who have tried CBD, but not all, report noticeable pain relief, sleep improvement and/or anxiety reduction.

Various studies have shown promising results. One 2018 review assessed how well medical cannabis works to relieve chronic pain. Researchers concluded that CBD (a major compound of medical cannabis) might be effective in overall pain management.

Another study published in 2016, found that the topical application of CBD might help reduce inflammation and pain. The major compound found in medical cannabis, CBD, might also be able to suppress neuropathic and inflammatory pain since it is believed to potentiate glycine receptors, which regulates pain at the spinal level.

Finally, CBD might help hinder the release of glutamates and other inflammatory drivers in the body, it might be an effective treatment to help manage chronic pain conditions. A study has shown that CBD does this by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.

Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety disorders and other mental health disorders can have devastating impacts on our overall health and well-being. Mental health disorders are often treated with pharmaceutical drugs, which can cause a number of side effects, including drowsiness, agitation, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, and headaches.

Statistics from the Anxiety & Depression Association of America showed:

  • Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
  • Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
  • People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
  • Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.

CBD oil has shown significant promise as a treatment for some mental health disorders, such as anxiety disorders, leading many people who live with these conditions to become interested in this natural approach. While the research investigating effects of CBD on symptoms of anxiety and depression is ongoing, small studies have shown positive outcomes regarding the ability of CBD oil to help relieve anxiety.

What to Look for When Shopping

There is good reason to be a cautious shopper. CBD products are largely unregulated in the U.S. market. Independent testing has shown mislabeling and lack of quality control. The biggest issues are strength of CBD (significantly more or less than the label says), the presence of undeclared THC, and contamination with pesticides, metals and solvents.

If you’re considering adding CBD oil for your personal routine, look for these five factors to ensure you’re buying a pure product:

1. Check the Label: To ensure you’re getting high-quality CBD, you need to check what’s in the bottle. Shockingly, 70 percent of Cannabidiol extracts sold online are mislabeled, according to a recent Penn Medicine study. These rogue CBD brands are not mentioning the levels of THC in their products, or they have ‘white label’ CBD products – synthetic cannabinoids that have been known to make some people ill. Make sure your CBD products are sourced from high-grade hemp facilities from companies that control every stage of the process, from growth, to extraction and production. The more involved the CBD company is in this process, the better.

2. Know the Source: Where is the hemp grown? This actually matters more than you think. Did you know that Colorado is the best state in America for growing hemp? The state’s advantages go beyond the straightforward rules. Among other things, the Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA), which runs the industrial hemp program, is incredibly pro-industry and works closely with hemp farmers to get them up and running. At lost range.®, our Hemp CBD products are derived right here in Colorado. The hemp is grown under the Colorado sun by local farmers who ensure a pure product. The hemp is also extracted here in Colorado and those extracts are then used in our small batch, handmade hemp CBD products. Our products are a true full circle product supporting an array of local Colorado grown small businesses. If you want to avoid falling prey to companies that will sell you poor-quality and ineffective CBD oil, you should consider getting your oil online, making sure to find out where the hemp comes from.

3. Potency and Pricing: While an over-abundance of available products may have you reaching for the cheapest CBD brand, what differs is the types of products and the strength of their formulations. From a consumer’s perspective, potency is one of the most important things to consider when purchasing CBD oil. Always look at the label when choosing a product. The label is your best bet because it tells you the percentage of the CBD in your oil, but that isn’t a strength. This reflects more the purity of the CBD in the product. You need to know how much CBD, in milligrams, is in the bottle, so you can divide that by the amount you take to see how much CBD is in your dose.

4. Quality is Key: Whatever a label says, quality matters most. This is because quality can affect CBD oil potency.
There are several things to keep in mind when shopping for CBD oil’s quality. The soil the hemp is grown in, the way it’s processed, the ingredients used, and so on – it all matters. Contaminated and poor-quality products can be sprayed with pesticides which won’t give you as much bang for your buck when it comes to how well your body can actually use the CBD. To 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.

Always look for third-party testing results that indicate the formula is clear of contaminants and contains appropriate CBD and THC levels.

Final Thoughts

CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in easing the symptoms of many common health conditions, including anxiety and neurological disorders. Plus, it may benefit heart health and help relieve certain types of pain.

There are many ways to invest in your health with CBD. The possibilities are simply endless. Everyone one is different with the symptoms they have and you may need to experiment with different CBD products to see what works best for you.
