Stamp Out Smoking For Good with CBD

Which smoker hasn’t heard stories of fellow-cigarette lovers that have successfully kicked their smoking habit and thought to themselves, “How on Earth did they do it? I’ve been trying for years!” The science behind why it is so difficult to quit smoking is crystal clear: Nicotine is highly addictive. Cigarette boxes themselves warn against their package contents. But nicotine and tobacco cravings can be curbed.  If you’ve tried the patches and gum and e-cigarettes with little success and are wondering what comes next… enter CBD.

Studies have shown that CBD can interrupt addictive behaviour and has the potential to affect the intensity of the connection between nicotine and its pleasure triggers in the brain; notably inhibiting the release of serotonin (the body’s ‘happy chemical’) which is triggered by nicotine. Since serotonin keeps a person calm and happy, it is one of the primary reasons smokers find it challenging to stop. CBD, however, triggers a neuroreceptor called 5-HT1A, which is responsible for boosting existing serotonin in the body in a better way. It thus works to provide the same pleasure and calming feelings as nicotine, but without the negative health consequences as smoking.

Habits and addictive behaviours aside, withdrawal symptoms are among the main reasons as to why people find it difficult to quit smoking. Due to its anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory and antiemetic properties, CBD is incredibly helpful in alleviating several side effects that arise from smoking cessation. This includes cigarette cravings, anxiety, irritability, stress, headaches, sleep disturbances, sweating, chills, fatigue, anxiety, and mood swings. All of these factors correlate with smoking in different ways, and alleviating them can greatly contribute to how efficiently smokers can use CBD oil to stop smoking. Because CBD is a non-intoxicating compound that doesn’t get users high, it stands as a promising solution to curb and satisfy smoker cravings that are not body harming. 

A study conducted by the University College of London used a double-blind placebo-controlled methodology to assess whether CBD could be effective at treating nicotine addiction. Of the 24 smokers that took part, 12 were given a CBD inhaler, and the other half a placebo, with all told to use their inhaler whenever they felt the urge to smoke. After a week’s observation, those given CBD smoked 40% fewer cigarettes than their counterparts. With smoking being one of the hardest habits to break, experiencing a low 7% success rate among people who wish to quit, CBD thus has the potential to increase quitter numbers and reduce the chance of relapsing.

As mentioned, if you’ve tried all the “answers” and are still coming up short, CBD could be the solution to you stamping out smoking for good. View the Echo Life range of CBD oils to find one that best suits your needs.

CBD Works Out: Benefits for Sports and Athletic Performance

Athletes put a lot of stress and pressure on their bodies, to positive and negative effect. It’s true.  Intensive and ongoing training results in increased physical performance, but the prolonged wear and tear on certain parts of the body can also lead to long-term injuries and lifelong health issues. After showing promise for treating a number of conditions associated with athletic competition, like joint aches, inflammation and muscle soreness, it’s easy to see why several professional athletes are embracing CBD oil. Particularly since WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) removed cannabidiol from its prohibited list of substances in 2018. 

Here are 5 Reasons to Consider CBD for Sports Recovery and Athletic Performance:

  1. Pain, Inflammation & Muscle Relief

Sustained use of CBD helps to alleviate inflammation and pain associated with stressed joints, injured muscles and tissue damage by regulating the body’s response to pain signals. This helps to decrease the pace of damage to the tissue and cartilage in the affected area and provides greater mobility for sufferers. The healing properties of CBD  also help to reduce swelling and mitigate soreness that often slows down one’s recovery, while eliminating muscle tension by influencing a system in the nervous system that stills, quiets and calms the body down. 

  1. Alternative to NSAIDs

Athletes are known to consume over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory

drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen to assist with pain management.  However, prolonged use of these pharmaceutical drugs increases one’s risk of renal damage, heart attacks and stroke – not to mention promote drug dependence and addiction. On the converse, CBD is non-addictive, has no intoxicating side effects and offers multifaceted health and wellness benefits without harmful after effects.

  1. Bone Health 

CBD knows how to work its way to the bone. It supports healthy bone deposition and can help to heal fractures, as has been evidenced in studies where CBD has been used as a treatment for issues related to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Healthy bones are essential for athletes, and with bone health sometimes compromised due to high-force body collisions, traumatic injuries or inadequate energy availability, CBD is ideal for promoting the strength, healing and recovery of bones.

  1. Healthy Sleep Cycle

CBD has been scientifically proven to improve sleep, due (in part) to its pain-inhibiting nature. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a single first dose of the compound to result in more restful sleep that very same night. Unlike chemically-manufactured sleep-promoting medications and tonics, CBD has no negative side effects on the nervous system, making it the preferred choice for athletes looking to limit their traditional pill usage, and want to enjoy a good quality night’s rest.  

  1. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Treatment 

Athletes involved in contact sports such as soccer, boxing or rugby are no strangers to the dangers of developing Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease found in people with a history of repetitive brain trauma and head injuries. People with CTE can become aggressive, depressed, impaired judgment, suicidal impulses and, eventually, progressive dementia. The neuroprotective properties of CBD stimulate cannabinoid receptors and other components of the body’s endocannabinoid system to reduce brain trauma, and reduce the risk factor of developing life-disabling injuries and conditions related to CTE. 

Some of the potential benefits and effects of CBD have been mentioned above, proving just how useful it can be to an athletic wellness regimen. Ultimately, since CBD is a safe, natural supplement with a ton of potential applications, it is ideal for both professional and just-for-fun athletes alike.

Using CBD to Promote Pet Health

Our pets mean the world to us and we want them to be as happy as can be. Just like people, animal happiness is linked to their health. What our sick pets can’t say in words, they’ll demonstrate through physical symptoms and behaviour changes. The idea of pets taking CBD oil to promote improved well-being might raise a few eyebrows in some. But CBD is a natural, drug-free solution that has become a mainstay in the holistic veterinary world to help pets overcome a range of conditions and illness, including problems with their skin, general pain, arthritis, separation anxiety, inflammation and more.

Echo Life Pet tincture is safe to use on dogs, cats and even horses. There are also no intoxicating effects experienced by your furry friends after taking our product, which means no hounds getting high or felines falling over. Echo Life Pet tincture offers a range of medicinal benefits that echo throughout your pet’s body to help them feel good and run around with newfound passion and a zest for life. Let’s examine how. 

Skin and Coats

Cats and dogs are known to develop dermatitis, an inflammatory and chronic skin condition that is associated with a myriad of allergies. This is what makes them scratch profusely when the cause isn’t fleas. Commonly affected areas include the ears, wrists, ankles, muzzle, underarms, groin, around the eyes, and between the toes. CBD helps to relieve the constant itching so that pets ultimately scratch less and don’t worsen their condition.  CBD has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory effects of certain skin cells as well. The immunosuppressive properties of cannabidiol may make it a therapeutic agent for inflammatory skin diseases, such as those dogs develop due to hormone imbalances and changes. While this can happen to any dog, the following breeds are especially susceptible:

• Boxers

• Irish setters

• Retrievers

• Sharpies

• Beagles

• Dalmatians

• Bulldogs

CBD can help to boost your pets’ skin health and is also a viable natural option to ensure a healthy, shiny coat.

Separation Anxiety & Pet Stress

Like their owners, pets can get stressed, anxious and nervous at times. This is especially high during thunderstorms, travel or Guy Faulks Day, Diwali and New Year’s Eve when fireworks are going off repeatedly. Some animals can also be very fearsome, especially rescues that have been abused. Because of its soothing and calming properties, CBD helps your pet relax and stay calm and can be the solution for those looking for natural options to prescription anti-anxiety drugs and their potentially harmful side effects.

Ease Pain and Inflammation

Studies have shown that CBD is not only good for treating anxiety and skin conditions. It is also beneficial for both acute and chronic pain caused by joint issues and arthritis. Because CBD oil supports the immune system’s ability to modulate activity, it allows the body to better control cellular degeneration, helping with mobility in pets. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD fight against any inflammation and relieve pain, making it more manageable for your furry friends to do their day-to-day activities like they are still young kittens and pups.

Echo Life Pet tincture comes in a range of tasty treats like salmon and bacon for pets. Try them out today for improved pet wellness, naturally.

CBD Is Officially a Schedule 0 Complementary Medicine In South Africa

Cannabidiol (CBD) and certain CD-containing products became legally classified as a Schedule 0 Complementary Medicines under Category D, under the South African Medicines Act.  This was signed into law by Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize in May 2020.

For those unfamiliar with how medicine schedule’s work, the classification system defines a medicine’s level of risks and benefits. As medicinal risks increase, so does the schedule – with South Africa’s highest schedule being Schedule 8. Certain CBDs’ classification as Schedule 0 means that they are legally safe to use without the need to consult a medical practitioner, residing in the same category as everyday analgesics like paracetamol and aspirin. 

Echo Life CBD products have always complied with laws and regulations that grant them their new Schedule 0 status. As a brand dedicated to providing safe, natural wellness solutions that promote general health enhancement, both inside and out, we welcome the ruling, which will undoubtedly debunk myths and misconceptions around CBD use. We believe that this will inspire more consumers to consider CBD as part of their wellness and recovery repertoires, and experience the benefits that so many South African consumers are already enjoying thanks to Echo Life. 

Echo Life tinctures, creams and sales can help to alleviate inflammation and pain, anxiety, insomnia, skin allergies, acne, tobacco cravings, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, acne and more.

Recovering Muscles (and Time) with CBD

For many people, a proper post-workout recovery routine means resting for a few hours after training, maybe a rejuvenating ice bath and getting enough sleep. But let’s be real. Most of us don’t have those luxuries. We’re lucky that we can squeeze in an early morning session at the gym, before having our time split between traffic, meetings, work deadlines, traffic again, family responsibilities, friend time, visiting the folks, and then tending to the other 101 commitments on our plate. (Same story, different order if you prefer to hit the gym after work.) With all this going on, there isn’t always enough time to rest and recover effectively from a workout.

But recovery time is critical. The body repairs and strengthens itself in the hours and days between workouts. Recovery time also helps bodies overcome negative side effects like pain and aches faster. But with today’s 9 to 5, or rather 05:00 to 21:00 life, when time really is of the essence, CBD is the perfect post-workout recovery solution for active lifestyles. Here’s why:

CBD relaxes muscle tissue and stops the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. Increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream reduce the amount of pain a person feels. CBD also reduces inflammation, which means that after a brutal workout or run when lactic acid builds up, your muscles and joints hurt less, allowing you to go from the gym to work without feeling pain in every step or lift of the arm. CBD also relieves delayed onset muscle soreness so that you won’t feel like you’ve been hit by a small car two days after a workout.

One of the most important elements for post-workout recovery is sleep. When you’re asleep, your body does a lot to repair itself. People who train late at night usually struggle to fall asleep because of high levels of cortisol in their bodies. CBD oil regulates cortisol levels and helps you nod off faster, making it ideal as a post-workout sleep remedy. Because CBD is non-psychoactive,  no intoxicating highs are ever experienced, and users never wake up with brain frog or feeling groggy.

Several fitness trainers, gym enthusiasts, athletes and professional sportspeople have been using Echo Life as a consistent way to promote body healing and enjoy active recovery sessions a lot easier, in particular the Echo Life Pain Stick and Echo Life tinctures. The combination of results both on and off the field have been amazing, enhancing each person’s performance and enabling them to use their time more effectively on professional and personal pursuits, without recovery rest time absorbing precious hours from their days.

That being said, the best thing you can do is go ahead and try it for yourself to see how Echo Life CBD can benefit your body. Who knows? By this time next week, you could be recovering faster from your workout and have one less excuse to skip leg day.

Can Children Benefit from CBD?

Every mom and dad knows that your choices as a parent begin long before your child is even born. Some are easy to make, like what to feed them, where to send them to school and the appropriate method of discipline. But when it comes to their health, choices can get a little tricky.

Medications in particular are where several parents are at a crossroads. Pharmaceutical drugs are proven to help little ones get better in time of sickness and can manage psychological conditions successfully. But they can also have scary side effects, as pointed out on the neatly folded packaging leaflet on a bottle of pills. For this reason, many parents opt for natural wellness remedies, where possible.

Because all-natural CBD products have been proven to alleviate a range of conditions based on adult studies, such as pain, inflammation and anxiety and depression to name a few, some parents wonder if CBD is safe for child consumption. Although not much controlled research has been done with CBD and kids, and Echo Life products are not recommended for children, there are those who use CBD as a potential remedy to help treat their children’s anxiety, hyperactivity, headaches, reduce stress and in some cases epilepsy, as CBD contains no THC. This means that there are no intoxicating side effects or highs.

According to an opinion poll conducted by News24.com, 27% of parents responded that they have already given their kids CBD, believing it to have been beneficial to their children’s health. A pregnant mom of a 6-year-old girl shared that she treats her young daughter’s unexplained seizures with CBD oil, a solution she turned to after doctors could not provide answers as to why the seizures were happening. She reported that within two days of taking CBD, she noticed a change in her daughter, who was also no longer complaining about headaches.

Other reported uses of CBD in kids, consumed through gummies and drops, and by applying topical creams have been:

  • To alleviate or prevent nausea and motion sickness before a long car ride
  • For mild pain management
  • To promote sleep in children experiencing insomnia from nightmares
  • To promote a state of calm when hyperactive
  • Manage inflammation involved with autoimmune diseases
  • Treat eczema and rashes

Most people cut gummies into 5mg doses for small children, and 10mg for kids over the age of 10, while daily dosages of CBD tincture have been between 2.5 to 10 mg depending on a child’s age, size, and symptom severity. However as mentioned, not many scientific studies have been done concerning CBD and kids, which is why Echo Life products are created and intended for adult and pet usage. If you are considering CBD as a natural wellness supplement for children, it’s always best to have doctor’s oversight to ensure that it okay to do so.

Here’s the Skinny on CBD Oil for Healthier-Looking Skin

When we wake up in the morning the first thing we see when we look in the mirror is our face.

Some of us might see a few lines (or not-so-fine lines), nature’s way of giving our age away without consent; others may discover a new cluster of acne pimples, while some might spot some old marks and blemishes. Most people experience, or have experienced, issues with their skin at some point. In some cases, they’re still dealing with the after-effects. It’s a normal part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it lying down. Solutions for combating common skin concerns are aplenty, but CBD products are leading the natural remedy movement for improved skin health due to their effective healing properties.

CBD oil is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to help people attain good skin health from the inside out with just a few drops each day. The skin has its own endocannabinoid system (ECS) which constantly controls the activity of the skin’s immune and inflammatory system. When absorbed by the body, CBD binds to the ECS which in turn increases the activity of the skin’s ECS, making it more effective at treating a range of conditions that contribute to diminished skin health.

CBD for Acne

Acne is caused when excess oil produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands cause the pores to become clogged by oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. As a result, the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes builds up under the skin, causing angry, red blemishes. CBD stops acne from developing by exhibiting its anti-inflammatory effects on the sebaceous glands, resulting in a reduction in oil production, and ultimately clearer, healthier-looking skin with fewer breakouts. CBD also has the potential benefit of reducing acne breakouts on other parts of the body as well, such as the back and thighs.

CBD for Acne Scars

Your acne years are over, but they’ve left a few nasty scars and skin crypts. CBD can support the regeneration of these skin cells and also limits the spread of damaged cells. The anti-inflammatory effect of CBD is also ideal for taming larger acne scars. When you apply CBD directly to a scar, such as through CBD creams, it can help soften and smooth those scars, which reduces the appearance and texture of the scar tissue.

CBD for Wrinkles & Fine Lines

As you age, your body loses collagen, an essential protein that keeps skin firm and supple. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines develop. The antioxidant properties of CBD help to reduce the effects of damaged skin and wrinkles that contribute to the visible signs of ageing by reducing free radicals, which cause collagen to break down faster. By counteracting free-radical damage, slowing down the process of collagen loss and reducing the look of inflammation, CBD further diminishes other issues such as skin dullness and ruddy skin tone, keeping the skin looking more youthful, firm and healthy.

CBD for Sensitive Skin

As mentioned, CBD has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. These can have skin-calming effects that help to minimise issues related to skin sensitivity, including redness and skin reactions to a variety of environmental stimuli. CBD has also been noted to provide relief from, and soothe conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

The truth is that everybody wants to look their best when greeting the world. Clear, youthful and healthy-looking skin is one of those things that make you feel confident in your own skin, so to speak. Echo Life CBD oils and tinctures are wonderful additions to help achieve more glowing, healthier skin.

CBD Oil: Bringing Feeling Good Back to Food

Who hasn’t seen those TV chefs talk about how wonderful olive oil is as they generously drizzle it over salads or swirl it on top of a bowl of pasta for an astringent twist of flavour and glossy finishing touch. Yawn. Change the channel. It’s nothing new. However, what is making foodies and the health-conscious community sit up and take note is a palate-pleasing ingredient, soon to make its way onto several lips when it comes to food preparation – CBD Oil. In fact, according to a CNBC report,  CBD Oil is so popular in food preparation that in 2019, 3 in 4 American chefs named CBD oil-infused food as the year’s hottest trend at restaurants.

It’s easy to understand why. CBD oil helps with improving emotional, mental and physical health, decreases inflammation, promotes better sleep and is an effective anxiety-reducing product. To boot, several people have stated that CBD oil tastes similar to olive oil or other plant oils, making it complementary to their meals while doing the body a world of good. As the CBD trend continues to permeate the F&B industry, such through chocolate bars, coffees and gummies, here are ways that you can incorporate your Echo Life CBD oil into your very own homemade meals for delicious, feel-good food.

  1. Be Wary Of High Heat

Avoid cooking with CBD oil at excessively high temperatures as the oil can evaporate and lose potency, terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids due to high heat causing the compounds to break down. This may result in the benefits dissipating. Rather use CBD oil as a finishing touch on meals. Try drizzling the oil over avocado toast, pizza, eggs or mixing it into pesto, smoothies or your morning coffee. If you want to bake with CBD oil, ensure that your heat never exceeds 160°C as the oil generally boils between 160-180°C, but the exact temperature depends on the oil’s makeup.

  1. How Much Should You Use?

No two people respond in the same way to CBD oil consumption. That’s because weight influences your metabolism, circulation and health. While there’s no minimum or maximum dosage that can be recommended, we advise that you start small and don’t overdo it, especially if you are a first-time user. Start with just a few drops of CBD oil and go from there according to taste and until you know how your body responds. If you are an existing user of CB -oil, consider using the dosage that you are currently taking and be sure to incorporate it alongside other healthy fats.

  1. Be Patient with the Benefits

A common question most people want answered is, “How long does it take to work?” The short answer is that it depends on the individual – everybody is different. For some people the results are immediate. Others may notice that they sleep better a week after taking CBD oil. For others, it might be two weeks to a month to notice a difference. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. It wasn’t built in 2 or 3 days either, so it’s important to be patient when you start to take CBD.

  1. Store Your CBD Correctly

As CBD is sensitive to light, storing your CBD in a dark, cool and dry place will ensure it retains its taste and quality. It will also reduce waste due to spoilage.

Adding CBD Oil is a fantastic way to blend the product into your diet via food. Echo Life CBD tinctures are available in delicious flavours such as apple, vanilla and peppermint that leave a refreshing feel on the palate, as well as a range of tasty treats like salmon and bacon for pets.

CBD Oil vs Hemp Oil: What’s the Difference Anyway?

Not all oils are created equal, especially those made from nature’s miracle wonder plant – cannabis.  Though it’s easy to get the two confused given their source, CBD Oil and Hemp Oil are completely different products, each with distinct differences in what they are used for and how they affect the body and one’s health.

A common mistake that several consumers make when purchasing these products is thinking that they will get the benefits of CBD Oil when consuming Hemp Oil, and vice versa. It’s easy to understand why. Aside from the confusing medical terminology used when explaining these products (which goes right over most people’s heads),  trying to navigate their differences with so much contradictory information out there can be like falling down a dizzying Google rabbit hole that leaves you more perplexed than when you started.

Today, we’re clearing up the murkiness and misconceptions surrounding these two products; examining their differences, similarities and the distinguishing elements that you need to look out for when purchasing either one.

  1. Origins & Visual Differences

As mentioned earlier, both products are derived from the cannabis plant. Hemp oil is harvested by cold-pressing hemp seeds, similar to how olive oil is made by pressing whole olives. Hemp oil typically has a clear, light green colour and can have a nutty flavour. CBD oil, on the other hand, comes from the stalks and flowers of the cannabis plant. It has a clear gold or dark gold colour and generally has a neutral or earthy taste.

  1. THC Levels

This is a big one so pay attention. Both Hemp Oil and CBD oil contain less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component of cannabis that intoxicates marijuana users. This means that neither product will make you high. Ideally, Hemp Oil should contain no THC at all.

  1. Uses & Benefits of Hemp Oil

Hemp oil is primarily used in the manufacture of body care products, such as soaps, shampoos and moisturisers, although it can also be used for cooking and baking. Hemp oil works well with all skin typ
es as it moisturises without clogging pores, hydrates the dermis and helps to reduce acne that often comes from overproduced oil by the sebaceous glands. In addition, hemp oil has anti-ageing properties that help with the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

 From a digestive point of view, hemp oil is incredibly nutrient-rich and contains essential fatty acids needed by the body, such as omega-6  and omega-3. In some cases, hemp oil has proven to help to combat heart disease and alleviate PMS and menopausal symptoms in women.

  1. Uses & Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD Oil is generally used as a form of alternative wellness treatment for the several ways in which it helps to balance the internal system of the body. CBD is embraced by natural medicine and may be used to combat and provide relief from various medical conditions and symptoms. These include:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Cancer
  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
  • Skin Allergies
  • Acne
  • Insomnia
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Echo Life CBD products are specially-formulated from 99%+ pure CBD isolate and can be used as a food additive, mixed into liquids, or ingested in various other ways to enjoy the medicinal benefits of pure CBD.

The ABCs of CBD: What It Is & What It Does

There’s no question about it. CBD is the new star of the natural wellness movement. All it takes is a single Google search to see the positive impact that CBD is having in the lives of millions of people around the world. It’s even found praise among a long list of Hollywood celebrities, as well as several pets. Yet despite the growing popularity and proven medicinal benefits of CBD, the average South African has very little idea as to what it is, how to use to or if it’s even legal to do so.

CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, a natural compound extracted from the cannabis flower, a plant used for decades for its multitude of medicinal benefits. CBD is one of over eighty cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. It is derived from hemp and contains Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels of less than 0.3%. Often the word ‘cannabis’ conjures up thoughts of strange hallucinations, red eyes, paranoia and heady highs. However, pure CBD products, such as Echo life tinctures, topical salves and creams, have no psychoactive side effects, are non-addictive and non-toxic to your body. This means that they are safe to use and will not produce any intoxicating or euphoric feelings.

To date, numerous research and scientific studies have shown CBD to have a scope of medicinal benefits, such as anti-inflammatory properties and the potential to relieve various degrees of pain. For many, CBD has been an excellent addition to their recovery repertoire, helping to relieve symptoms for conditions such as:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Skin allergies
  • Acne
  • Insomnia
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis

CBD works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) which plays a crucial role in regulating physiological processes in humans. These include mood, energy levels, intestinal fortitude, stress response, pain perception, immune activity and so forth. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system receptors, promoting homeostasis, so as to restore the body’s internal equilibrium.

Whenever a health problem arises, the endocannabinoid system releases natural cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) in order to restore balance in the body. In some cases, however, the endocannabinoid system can’t solve the problem on its own, which can lead to a number of chronic conditions. CBD binds to the body’s ECS receptors, which as a result, help to alleviate certain stresses on the body and provide relief for specific ailments that may be at play.

To sum it all up, CBD is one of the most useful natural products around. Since achieving legal status in South Africa in 2019, its popularity has grown, with numerous individuals choosing to cultivate wellness the natural way by unlocking the wonders of CBD.
