CBD Water with hemp plant

How can CBD water help me?

Cannabidiol or CBD is a beneficial supplement to add to your wellness regime so why not combine CBD with the healthiest beverage on the planet – water.

Opt for a beverage with a high milligram dosage of CBD. A good daily dosage would be in the vicinity of 30mg-150mg per day depending on your requirements.

Not sure how much CBD to take each day? A CBD Dosage Calculator can help you identify your ideal dosage.

 The human body readily accepts up to 1,500mg of CBD per day with little to no side effects, according to a research study conducted in Holland in 1998.

Look for a brand that clearly specifies the type of CBD. Is it  Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum? Broad Spectrum products contain all of the cannabinoids with 0% THC and Full Spectrum products contain all of the cannabinoids with 0.3% THC.

It is believed that drinking CBD water has a faster uptake than eating gummies as it does not need to pass through the digestive tract. CBD water and beverages is a great way to provide the body with essential cannabinoids.

There are many different CBD beverage alternatives on the market from waters, to sodas, sports beverages and even CBD wine. CBD Teas are another popular alternative.

There is a wealth of information available on the necessity to rehydrate after a workout. CBD has been proven to assist in the regeneration of muscles and cells post-workout. CBD has been proven to reduce inflammation. It can help to eliminate a hangover after a night out too.

So how does CBD water work and why is it so important?

CBD is absorbed through the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors are part of an elaborate body regulator called the Endocannabinoid System.

These receptors are located all over the body and are responsible for bonding with cannabinoids that are essential for the functioning of the Endocannabinoid System. These cannabinoids are like fuel for a car. The car is the Endocannabinoid System. Examples of these cannabinoids include anandamide , 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), n-arachidonoyl dopamine (NADA), and virodhamine (OAE).

The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for:

  • Restful sleep/repair
  • Hormone regulation
  • Memory
  • Motor Coordination
  • Appetite
  • Muscle Condition/Movement
  • Emotion/Mood

The body usually creates endo-cannabinoids to supply these receptors. Our body uses Omega-3’s to create cannabinoids to supply the receptors. As we age, or if there is an imbalance, our body does not make these essential endo-cannabinoids. 

Cannabinoid receptors in body systems

The cannabinoids in CBD, particularly Full Spectrum products, are interchangeable for the ones the body would ordinarily produce. When the body is struggling to make these essential cannabinoids, CBD can ensure that the Endocannabinoid System is functioning effectively and that you are staying healthy and well.
