Types of CBD Products

CBD offers many properties to the body and mind through the endocannabinoid system.  CBD can be experienced through several delivery methods to allow a more multi-faceted kind of hemp regimen. Using CBD topicals and ingestibles together allow the compounds of the hemp plant to absorb into the body in two ways, maximizing the effects you will experience. At Muscle MX, we offer both these types of hemp products in various formulas so you can customize your routine for the best results possible.

Lotions Creams & Balms

Cannabis topicals can come as a salve, a cream, lotion, or even an oil. They are meant to be applied to the skin and provide localized relief for joint and muscle pain. This pain may be derived from damaged nerve endings, arthritis, inflammation, general soreness, or many other conditions. CBD topicals provide pain relief without creating a sense of being high or stoned (in case you were worried about that).

CBD infused topicals work by being absorbed through the skin and binding to our CB2 receptors, which are found throughout our bodies, thanks to our lovely Endocannabinoid system. CBD has a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect on the body once it is encountered with these CB2 receptors. The amazing thing about our bodies is that it increases the number of cannabinoid receptors present in muscle tissues that are injured or inflamed. What better way to heal our torn or inflamed muscles than using CBD topical!? It is a natural and organic alternative to pharmaceutical medications that generally have dangerous side effects, or even worse, take forever to start kicking in! CBD infused topicals begin working the instant you rub it on your skin.

Ingestibles

CBD Tinctures

Research has shown that the properties of hemp can be useful to the human body in many ways that can enhance your daily routine.

Stress and Sleep

Studies have found that CBD may reduce stress and enhance sleep by regulating the production of neurotransmitters such as cortisol and melatonin, in the brain.

Pain

CBD may possess properties that offer pain relief as studies have found.  Cannabinoids, including CBD, contain anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.  CBD drops can also be applied topically, as opposed to ingested, to an area for targeted relief.

Energy

Additional research is starting to point to signs that CBD may enhance energy levels if taken in the daytime, due to the regulatory effects on energy homeostasis. This supports the body’s natural daily energy cycle.

Cognition

CBD may offer cognitive-enhancing properties to the neurological system, which could play a role in balancing focus, motivation, and memory.  It is currently being studied for potential effects on dementia.

Digestive Support

Cannabidiol may offer digestive support by strengthening the lining of mucus in the digestive tract that fights inflammation.

Bring Balance Back to Your Body

Make CBD Drops a part of your healthy lifestyle by taking your drops daily in the proper strength and dosage to get the full benefits of the CBD. Due to its many unique effects, it can provide usefulness both physically and mentally.

CBD Gummies

In short, CBD gummies are gummy candies that are infused with hemp extract. They come in an airtight container which keeps them fresh so that they can remain as potent as possible. CBD gummies are ingested which means that the way they absorb into the body is unique.

CBD gummies are known for being a particularly user-friendly delivery method, meaning that you do not need to deal with measuring out the product to come up with a standard dose or special equipment to consume them. Gummies come with dosing instructions on the label and following them allows you to know that you are taking the right amount according to the manufacturer’s knowledge of the product.

Typically, one or two gummies counts as a single dose, with each piece containing the same number of milligrams of hemp extract.

Gummies can be taken at any time of the day, and you should time your dose about two hours before you want the effects to take place so that the hemp peaks in the body when it will be the most useful to you. For instance, if you are taking gummies to sleep better at night, you would want to take your dose about two hours before going to bed.
