Customizing your CBD Routine

Benefits, Individualized… For some, it’s relief from muscle soreness after exercising.  For others, it’s to unwind after a stressful day.  There are many reasons why health-conscious individuals are choosing to incorporate phytocannabinoids (like CBD) into their wellness plans.  When considering what form or concentration of phytocannabinoids is right for you, it’s important to remember that there is no “one size fits all” approach.  While some individuals choose modest doses, others may enjoy higher doses. And while many people report that phytocannabinoid products aid them in feeling calm and relaxed, others may find that it helps them feel more focused.  Be it topically applied or ingested, how you respond to phytocannabinoid products depends on the individual needs of your body—and your endocannabinoid system.

 

ECS Made Easy…

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors implicated in maintaining homeostasis or balance, to ensure our internal environment remains constant. A balanced ECS is important for overall health and well-being.  Phytocannabinoids interact with the body’s ECS and may play an important role in maintaining overall health.

 

Finding Your Way…

If you’ve never used a product with phytocannabinoids before, we recommend starting with a lower dose such as half a dropper (0.5 mL), or less, of our  lower concentration full spectrum hemp extract tincture and monitoring how you feel. Remember, phytocannabinoids work in combination with your body’s ECS and it may take time for your body to adjust. If over time you haven’t reached your wellness goals it’s time to consider adjusting your concentration or dosage.  If you feel like you’re on your way, try increasing to 1 mL  of our lower concentration tincture, or even 1 of our soft gels.  Continue to monitor yourself and re-evaluate every few weeks. It could be that you initially prefer a higher dose, and you respond to a more modest concentration for ongoing maintenance. We have many concentrations of tinctures available that make customizing your dosing routine easy, and our topical balm is a gentle way to begin incorporating phytocannabinoids into your wellness routine.

 

A Note on Consistency…

As with all dietary supplements, consistency is key.  Our products are formulated with quality in mind, ensuring that they are homogeneous to provide you with the correct amount of phytocannabinoids every time, helping you in your efforts to determine the concentration that works best for you.  Be sure to choose a delivery system that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle.

 

The Choice Is Yours…

Do you always make time for breakfast?  If so, a tincture could be an easy addition to your morning brew, which we have available in mint, cinnamon, and natural.  Don’t forget our furry friends!  Our supplements for pets can be added directly to their food.  Prefer something you can quickly take at your desk?  Our soft gels can be taken with or without food, are convenient and discrete. We also offer topical treatments—from massage oils to scented soothing balms—great for a relaxing rub down before bed. 

 

The Bottom Line…

Every individual is different, so every individual responds differently to botanicals.  Try keeping a log of when, how much, and in what form you use our phytocannabinoid products as well as a journal of how you feel throughout the day.  This could be a detailed account or a simple ten-point scale.  Choosing a method that complements your lifestyle will make it that much easier to be consistent.  To support you on your journey to customizing a wellness plan that suits your individual needs, Forest Remedies™ has created a line of quality products in a wide range of concentrations and delivery forms.  To learn more about how we use testing by third-party labs to ensure our products generate the desired result, please visit www.forestremedies.com.
