You may have heard of this trending thing called CBD. Or perhaps you’ve noticed CBD shops popping up all around you. The truth is, CBD isn’t just a passing fad. CBD is a great wellness product that can have major health benefits—including for your feet and ankles!
What Is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is one of 85 cannabinoid compounds derived from the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant family includes both marijuana and hemp plants. CBD does not get you “high”—that’s THC, the main ingredient in marijuana. Therefore, CBD is legal for sale across the US.
What Does CBD Do?
CBD activates the CB1 receptors in your brain which can reduce stress, relieve anxiety, lower depression, and decrease blood pressure, inflammation, and pain. Cannabinoids like CBD are already produced naturally in the human body. Therefore, CBD products simply supplement these natural levels as a vitamin would.
How Does CBD Help My Foot or Ankle Condition?
CBD is a great way to decrease overall pain from foot conditions such as arthritis or plantar fasciitis. CBD also helps decrease inflammation which can help relax muscles and joints after an injury. CBD can help treat a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions.
What’s the Best Brand of CBD?
CBD is a fairly new product, and standards for CBD product labeling have not been fully established. There are few overseers of CBD quality throughout the industry, which means brands don’t have to prove that what they say is in their product is true. So, when the FAAWC went looking for the best CBD brand, we knew it needed to be centered on a brand with high-quality testing and standards.
PurMed Global offers a variety of physician-grade CBD products that are sustainably sourced, responsibly produced, and tested for quality and compliance. Their CBD is only extracted from hemp plants grown in full federal compliance. And their product testing is done through a third-party lab and meets international quality (ISO) standards.
Is CBD Safe?
The World Health Organization says that CBD is safe and well-tolerated by most people. Currently, available evidence shows CBD to be an effective method of controlling pain and other symptoms of various conditions such as epilepsy or depression without negative side effects. Studies into the long-term effects of CBD are still ongoing.
How Much & What Type of CBD Should I Use?
CBD is a wellness product, not a prescription. But it is still important you consult with a physician about which CBD products and dosage might be right for you. Product options include CBD gummies, CBD oil (to be placed under the tongue), and CBD relief cream.
The ideal dosage of CBD depends on a lot of individual factors including body weight, the concentration of the product, and the health issue being treated. Your FAAWC provider can help determine the correct strength and dosage for you.
