Nausea and Appetite Regulation

CBD can assist individuals experiencing nausea, whether due to medical treatments or other causes. Additionally, it has been associated with appetite regulation, potentially aiding those with appetite-related challenges. THC is a double-sided coin.

However, if you take too much, then it can have the opposite effects by increasing nausea and stimulating an appetite (the munchies).

What is CBD, how do I use CBD, and is it legal in Iowa?

Explaining FAQ’s on Cannabidiol, Cannabis plants, and the medicinal benefits of CBD for holistic wellness.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis Hemp plant. With the 2018 farm bill, American farmers became able to produce and sell hemp products containing 0.3% THC or less. Since then the acceptance and use of CBD and non-intoxicating hemp products has grown tenfold. 

Luckily, cannabis hemp products with 0.3% THC are legal to purchase in Iowa and the US without a prescription or registration card. In some states, medical cards can be acquired which allow cardholders to purchase products containing high levels of THC.

CBD comes in many forms, including oils, extracts, capsules, patches, vapes, and topical preparations for use on skin. If you’re hoping to reduce inflammation and relieve muscle and joint pain, a topical CBD-infused oil, lotion or cream – or even a bath bomb — may be the best option. (Source: www.health.harvard.edu)

How do I know CBD will work for me?

Just like you, many loyal CBD users began their journey with questions. CBD can be confusing to those who are unsure of the legality surrounding cannabis. With so many products on the market and claims made, it can be hard to know where to start.

The human body was built for CBD. All animals are equipped with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which consists of cannabinoid receptors residing in every part of the body.

Cannabinoid receptors lie in the brain, skin, eyes, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, digestive tract, bone marrow, and so on… Literally, head to toe. These receptors are the exact fit for the CBD compound. This allows the CBD to help our cannabinoid receptors ‘do their job’ a little better, when they are slacking and causing your discomforts. The cannabinoids aid our cells in helping your body maintain homeostasis, like a receptor sidekick.

How can one plant, one product help to treat so many things?

The endocannabinoid system consists of the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found mainly in the Central Nervous System. This affects the spine. CB2 Receptors lie in the Peripheral Nervous system. The system is responsible for our immune system.

Research has linked the ECS to the following processes:

Through research, it is believed that CBD can benefit:

  • Arthritis
  • Sleep
  • Appetite, digestion, and nausea
  • Epilepsy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Migraines
  • Menopause and Menopausal symptoms
  • Seizures
  • Metabolism
  • Chronic pain
  • Inflammation and other immune responses
  • Mood
  • Learning and memory
  • Motor control
  • Cardiovascular system function
  • Bone remodeling and growth
  • Liver function
  • Gastrointestinal function
  • Reproductive system function
  • Stress
  • Skin and nerve function
  • …and so much more!

CBD can help lower cravings for tobacco and heroin under certain conditions, according to some research in humans. (Source: www.health.harvard.edu)

These functions all contribute to homeostasis, which refers to stability of your internal environment. For example, if an outside force, such as pain from an injury or a fever, throws off your body’s homeostasis, your ECS kicks in to help your body return to its ideal operation.

Today, experts believe that maintaining homeostasis is the primary role of the ECS. (Source: www.healthline.com)

Using CBD

CBD oil tincture is taken orally by placing the dose (typically 1 ml) under the tongue and allowing the oil to soak in and absorb. The reason to take it this way is the CBD is able to absorb directly into the users blood stream and giving your body the best opportunity to take in the CBD.

CBD can be taken sublingual, eaten, applied topically, inhaled and more. The benefits for each method will vary based on the intended effects and benefits.

What is the big deal about cannabis?

The Cannabis plant is a massive umbrella of cultivars holding varying utility. Fiber from some cannabis plants is used in construction materials, clothing and rope, paper, plastic alternatives, and biofuels to name a few. 

There are also Cannabis varieties grown for the seed. Hemp seeds contain all Nine amino acids and high levels of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The third type of cannabis plant is grown for its flowers which contain the CBD, THC and other compounds. The hemp flowers have a wide range of uses as well.

Cannabis legality in Iowa

As the public perception of cannabis, CBD, hemp, and marijuana change, many wonder when laws will change too. In Iowa, the programs for cannabis are some of the tightest. Smokable hemp or cannabis is not permitted.

In Iowa, it is legal to farm industrial hemp and grow and harvest it within state borders. So the rules on how it is grown and harvested are fairly complicated. The first rule here is that you can only use hemp that has been legally inspected and certified by the Department of Agriculture. Farmers grow this plant at their own risk and may not receive any financial compensation from your activities.

Understanding Different CBD Product Types: Oils, Tinctures, Edibles, and More

So, you’ve decided to explore the exciting world of CBD. Congratulations! Now, one of the first things you’ll discover is that CBD comes in various forms, each with its unique characteristics and benefits. Don’t worry; we’re here to break it down for you. Let’s dive into the wonderful world of CBD product types, from oils and tinctures to edibles and more.

The Basics: What Is CBD?

Before we get into the different product types, let’s cover the basics. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its cousin, THC, CBD won’t get you high. Instead, it offers a range of potential wellness benefits by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system.

Now, let’s explore the diverse ways you can enjoy the benefits of CBD!

1. CBD Oils and Tinctures

What are they? These are liquid extracts of CBD that you place under your tongue for fast absorption. They come in various concentrations and flavors.

Why choose them? Oils and tinctures are great for those who want precise control over their dosage and enjoy the rapid onset of effects. They are versatile and can be easily added to beverages or food. They are a great way to quickly experience the numerous benefits CBD has to offer. They can help with a wide range of things from anxiety, depression, mood, gastrointestinal issues, sleep, inflammation, pain, and more! When taken daily, CBD will build up in your system and help alleviate these issues.

Tip: Understand how to properly dose yourself. Many people take too little and claim it has no effect on them.  For our tinctures, we have you take a full dropper under the tongue. Let the tincture sit for 30-60 seconds before you swallow so it has enough time to absorb into your system. Wait 10-20 minutes for the desired effects.

2. CBD Edibles

What are they? CBD edibles come in a delightful array of options, including gummies, chocolates, and other treats infused with CBD. They offer a tasty way to enjoy the benefits of CBD and THC.

Why choose them? Edibles are discreet and convenient, making them an excellent choice for those who prefer a more enjoyable and flavorful experience.

Tip: Be patient with edibles; they can take some time to kick in, so don’t rush to take more if you don’t feel immediate effects. Wait approximately 2 hours for the desired effects. Understand that everyone is different and your body weight, metabolism, food intake that day, and CBD/THC tolerance will greatly impact how much you need and how fast it can kick in. For our edibles, we recommend starting with 1/3  to 1/2 of a gummy to understand the impact it has on your body. 

3. CBD Capsules

What are they? CBD capsules are pre-measured doses of CBD in pill form. They are a straightforward way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine.

Why choose them? Capsules are convenient, portable, and provide a consistent dose, making them an excellent option for those who prefer a no-fuss approach.

Tip: Take capsules with a glass of water for quicker absorption. Wait 1-2 hours for the desired effects.

4. CBD Topicals

What are they? CBD topicals are creams, balms, lotions, and salves infused with CBD. They are designed for targeted relief and can be applied directly to the skin.

Why choose them? Topicals are excellent for addressing specific skin concerns, localized discomfort, and muscle soreness.

Tip: Massage the topical into the affected area for better absorption. Wait 10-20 minutes for the desired effects.

5. CBD Vapes

What are they? CBD vapes involve inhaling CBD using a vaporizer. This method provides a rapid onset of effects.

Why choose them? Vaping offers quick relief and allows you to customize your dosage. It’s ideal for those who prefer a smoke-free alternative.

Tip: Be mindful of the quality of your vaping equipment and e-liquids. Wait 10-20 minutes for the desired effects.

6. CBD Isolate and Concentrates

What are they? These are highly concentrated forms of CBD, usually available in powder or crystal form. They contain pure CBD and no other cannabinoids or compounds.

Why choose them? Isolates and concentrates are for users who want precise control over their CBD intake and seek high potency.

Tip: They are versatile and can be added to your favorite foods and beverages.

Wrapping Up

Now that you’re acquainted with the different CBD product types, you can choose the one that best suits your preferences and needs. Keep in mind that everyone’s response to CBD can vary, so it may take some experimentation to find your ideal product and dosage. Start low and gradually increase as needed.

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant.

This means you can enjoy the potential benefits of CBD without the mind-altering effects.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our bodies. The ECS is a complex cell-signaling system that plays a vital role in regulating various physiological processes, including mood, sleep, immune function, and more. CBD can influence the ECS to help maintain balance and promote overall well-being.

Potential Benefits of CBD

  • Improved Sleep: CBD may support better sleep by addressing issues like insomnia and sleep disturbances.
  • Skin Health: Topical CBD products are becoming increasingly popular for addressing skin concerns, such as acne and irritation.
  • General Wellness: Some people use CBD as part of their daily wellness routine to help maintain balance and overall health.

Types of CBD Products

CBD comes in various forms to suit your preferences and needs:

  • CBD Oils and Tinctures: These are liquid extracts that you can place under your tongue for fast absorption.
  • CBD Edibles: Delicious gummies, chocolates, and other treats infused with CBD.
  • CBD Capsules: Convenient pre-measured doses in a pill form.
  • CBD Topicals: Creams, balms, and lotions for targeted relief.
  • CBD Vapes: Inhale CBD using a vaporizer for quick effects.

Finding the Right Product

When choosing a CBD product, consider factors like dosage, product type, and the reputation of the manufacturer. It’s essential to start with a low dose and gradually increase it as needed to find what works best for you.

Legal Status

In the United States, hemp-derived CBD containing less than 0.3% THC is legal at the federal level. However, state regulations may vary, so it’s crucial to be aware of your local laws.

Wrapping Up

CBD is a fascinating and versatile compound with the potential to enhance your overall well-being. As you start your CBD journey, remember that quality matters. Choosing reputable brands and understanding your individual needs are key to a successful CBD experience.

So, there you have it – your beginner’s guide to CBD! Whether you’re looking for relief from pain, anxiety, or simply want to promote a sense of calm and balance in your life, CBD has something to offer. Explore our range of high-quality CBD products, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Welcome to a world of wellness with CBD!
