For those interested in trying out the natural power of Cannabidiol (CBD) products, there are some important things you need to know before taking the plunge. Whether you’re looking for pain relief, anxiety relief, or even a way to get better sleep, understanding CBD and its workings is key. Here at Exhale Wellness, we believe that knowledge is power when it comes to making choices about one’s health and wellbeing. That’s why today we’ve created a list of 7 essential things to consider before buying any CBD product.
1. Understand what CBD is
The most important thing you can do before investing in a CBD product is to understand what CBD actually is and how it interacts with the body. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in cannabis plants such as hemp and marijuana that has been used medicinally for centuries. It doesn’t contain THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, so it won’t make you feel ‘high’ or impair your cognitive function. Instead, research suggests that it may be effective in relieving symptoms associated with certain conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, etc.
2. Know your source
When buying any supplement or health product, it’s important to know where it comes from and whether the company is reputable. Ideally, look for companies that have third party laboratory testing available on their website; this will ensure that their products are safe and free from contaminants such as pesticides or heavy metals that could be harmful to your health over time. Exhale Wellness provides extensive third party testing results on all of their products, so customers can rest assured that they’re getting only the highest quality organic materials in every bottle they purchase!
3. Read reviews & testimonials
Reading reviews from real customers who have already tried a particular brand or product can provide valuable insight into whether it’s right for you – especially if they mention specific benefits they’ve experienced while using it! In addition, many brands offer personal testimonials on their websites, giving potential buyers an even more in-depth look at what kind of results others have seen when using their product line – something to consider when deciding which route to take first!
4. Research the different types of products available
There are many different types of CBD products available on the market today, ranging from tinctures to gummies and topicals – each containing varying levels of potency depending on individual needs/tolerance. It’s important to familiarise yourself with these different options so that you can make an informed decision about which type would work best for your particular situation or condition being treated with cannabinoid therapy (i.e. chronic pain vs. stress management).
5. Consult a doctor before trying any product
As always, when introducing anything new into your routine – always consult your doctor first! They will be able to help determine if there are any contraindications between other medications being taken and/or advise on dosage recommendations based on existing medical history prior to starting any form of supplementation including cannabinoids such as THC/CBD found within our range here at Exhale Wellness!
6. Be aware of potential side effects & interactions
We always recommend that you do your research beforehand as there may be potential side effects associated with taking certain cannabinoid substances depending on individual biochemistry such as dry mouth, dizziness, nausea etc; however these are generally considered mild compared to the pharmaceuticals often prescribed instead! In addition, interactions between cannabinoids can also occur when taking multiple products at the same time, so again, consulting a qualified professional beforehand can help avoid any unintended side effects later on!
7. Start slow & increase dose as needed
Everyone reacts differently to different compounds – so start slowly with low doses initially, then gradually increase over time until the desired effects are felt without too much discomfort! Taking breaks during use also helps to maintain tolerance levels by allowing sufficient time between doses or cycles if necessary. This allows us here at Exhale Wellness to ensure that the safety of our clients remains paramount whilst still achieving positive results in their journey towards holistic healing through cannabinoid therapy!
