Every human has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which aids the body in maintaining balance from the time of birth.  The ECS promotes general well-being and regulates internal, physical, and chemical conditions.  It can help with neurological shortcomings, musculoskeletal problems, and inflammatory and immune issues.  The human body produces its own endocannabinoids, but sometimes this system falls a little short.  That’s when a CBD supplement can be helpful.

Not all people react to CBD in the same way.  Some require a very small amount, while others may need a higher dose.  It’s always a good idea to speak with your health care professional before starting a CBD regimen.

CBD typically comes in the form of a topical ointment, ingestible tinctures, or capsules.  Here’s what you should look for in selecting a CBD product:

  1. Look at the label.  It should be labelled as a dietary supplement and have the FDA disclaimer.  It will state the total amount of CBD (in milligrams) in the bottle as well as the serving size and list any additional ingredients.
  2. Look for third-party testing.  This is independent testing in addition to the manufacturer’s testing.
  3. Look for a lot number.  Reputable manufacturers include a lot number in the event that there is a product recall.
  4. Beware of exaggerated claims.  Any product that claims to cure a disease is not legit.  Be cautious of products that are bargain priced.
