Everything You Need to Know About CBD Supplements

For millennia, people have turned to cannabis to solve any number of health issues, from chronic inflammation to anxiety. Today, people are rediscovering the many health benefits of cannabis, particularly cannabidiol (CBD), and supplements are coming to market in droves. Unfortunately, many of these supplements are missing the mark and aren’t delivering this compound correctly.

At GYN Aesthetics & Wellness, our team of holistic wellness specialists has done their homework and studied the many beneficial properties of CBD. We’ve concluded that CBD is, indeed, a powerful treatment for ailments of all kinds, from chronic pain to chronic fatigue. But we’ve also found how the CBD is delivered makes all the difference.  That’s why we offer products by BeTrü  — a company that deploys a proprietary technique to ensure that you reap the benefits of your CBD supplement.

Here’s what you should know about choosing the right CBD supplements.

How CBD works

Before we get into choosing the right CBD supplement, let’s quickly review how CBD works. The first thing to understand is that your body contains what we call the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which releases endocannabinoids that attach to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. These neurotransmitters play a role in regulating several of your body’s functions, including:

In introducing CBD into your body, it has a direct impact on your ECS, giving it the tools it needs for improved function in the areas we listed above.

While CBD is associated with marijuana, the compound doesn’t have a psychoactive effect — that comes from another ingredient called tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. In other words, CBD won’t get you high. As noteworthy, CBD also won’t provide health benefits if it’s delivered in a form that your body can’t use.

A matter of absorption

Since the health benefits of CBD are triggered by attaching to tiny receptors in your body, the compound must reach these receptors in the first place. The cells in your body can absorb particles that measure between 60 and 80 nanometers, but the particles in hemp measure approximately 2,000 nanometers. What this means is that your body is simply expelling the unrefined CBD found in many supplements.

The reason we chose BeTrü CBD products is that the manufacturer uses a sound laser to reduce the size of the hemp particles, allowing your body to absorb the compound and reap the benefits fully. Called nano-emulsification, this process ensures that you’re not simply wasting your time and money on a supplement that isn’t affecting your body.

BeTrü products come in many different forms, including:

The company also makes a line of products for dogs, helping your pooch to fight off aging joints and achieve better overall wellness.

To figure out which BeTrü supplements are right for you, we first thoroughly analyze your problem to come up with the best treatment plan. If we find that you can benefit from CBD, we discuss which delivery method and dosage is right for your unique situation.

Even if you don’t have a specific medical issue, but you’re simply seeking better overall wellness, we recommend CBD supplements. Here again, we discuss how much you should take to ensure that your endocannabinoid system is fully supported for better health.
