Cannabinoids - Huh?

Cannabinoids are categorized into the following subclasses:

  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabinodiol (CBDL)
  • Other cannabinoids including cannabielsoin (CBE) and cannabitriol (CBT), cannabicyclol (CBL)

Still what does all this mean. Forgive me, I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Skylar Lark, I am a ghost writer. This is my first time writing a blog for a company of any sort. I am excited and challenged at the same time.

I am no stranger to the CBD industry because I am a client. I have been using CBD Oils and Balms for over 5 years. Some I love, some frustrate me, and many just doesn't met my need.

From the above, I highlighted the two most popular ones: THC (gets you high) & CBD (no high).

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. This compound, alongside hemp's other abundant healing compounds, has become popularized for its natural therapeutic qualities

Though categorized under the same umbrella as the marijuana plant, CBD does not contain THC, the chemical component that results in a psychoactive 'high'

What are the benefits of CBD and full spectrum hemp supplements?

CBD has become a go-to for natural health-seekers to support overall mental & physical well-being. There are over 100+ cannabinoid compounds within the hemp plant, and CBD is just one of them. When all these cannabinoid compounds work together in a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum hemp supplement, they create an entourage effect that makes them more effective. Research promotes the benefits of whole plant hemp supplements and our products reflect hemp’s natural components with near perfect accuracy.

Among the diverse benefits that CBD has to offer, CBD devotees’ express enthusiasm over its ability to invoke a sense of calm, aid post-workout recovery, and to support a healthy sleep cycle. Surreal Wellness proudly offers full spectrum and broad spectrum extracts, rich in CBD content and hemp’s full variety of beneficial plant compounds.

Is Surreal CBD Marijuana?

No. Surreal CBD is made from CBD-rich hemp, not marijuana. Think of CBD and marijuana as lemons and oranges. Just as lemons and oranges are both considered citrus fruits, CBD and marijuana are both part of the cannabis plant genus. While marijuana is typically known for having high THC content, the chemical component that results in a psychoactive high, hemp contains no more than .3% THC.

All Surreal CBD products are hemp-based, containing high-levels of CBD and under .3% THC, ideal for those looking to experience greater physical and mental well-being with some help from mother nature.

How does CBD oil work?

CBD works wonders thanks to its direct interaction with our body’s endocannabinoid system. Every mammal on the planet has an endocannabinoid system: a network of receptors throughout the body that ensure homeostasis, i.e. internal balance. When we take a CBD supplement, it supports this complex system’s efforts to keep us in good health by providing an extra line of support.

What will it feel like when I take CBD oil?

The most important thing to understand is that CBD affects everyone different; just as no two bodies are the same, no two people will react to CBD the same. CBD works intimately with the body’s endocannabinoid system and has a balancing effect on your internal chemistry. That effect will look different based off of what your body needs.

Some individuals report feeling energized or focused after taking CBD, while others report feeling ready for bed. However, one of the most mentioned feelings that people experience once they take CBD is a sense of calmness.

In short, there is no way of predicting how CBD will feel for you, so go ahead and try it to find out. I have tried several brands.

Does CBD have any side effects?

When you buy CBD from a reputable, trustworthy brand, like Surreal, you can trust that you’re getting a high-quality product. However, as with any dietary supplement, there is always the risk of an adverse reaction and/or interaction with medication. Consult with your physician before you begin taking CBD to ensure it’s the right fit for you.
