How to find the best CBD products

Today, there are several companies manufacturing CBD products. The most popular of them are called Charlotte's Web, hemp oil, and hemp gel. Each product has its own unique quality. Hemp products are used mainly in cosmetic and pharmaceuticals applications. CBD supplements are now being marketed worldwide. They are sold as nutritional supplements, dietary supplements, and topical creams. However, some people are still concerned about their side effects or long term usage.

Hemp oil is made from the hemp plants grown on a small scale in the U.S.A., Canada, and Europe. CBD is the major ingredient that gives the oil its distinctive odor. Cannabidiol, also known as cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating phytochemical found in hemp plants in 1940. It accounts for up to forty percent of the total plant's extract and is one of eleven identified CBD compounds in hemp plants. Its scientific name, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabivarin, or CBD, is derived from the Greek word "cannabis," meaning "a plant used for medicinal purposes." CBD is believed to have antioxidant properties and to possess antispasmodic properties. Because it is non-intoxicating, it is believed to have fewer side effects than many conventional drugs, such as Viagra and Ritalin.

Hemp products and hemp oil are also useful for relieving muscle spasms, convulsions, epilepsy, anxiety, depression, anxiety, and muscle tension. Because CBD is non-intoxicating, it may be used to alleviate the symptoms associated with various other medical conditions. CBD is also thought to be beneficial in treating depression. Because of its high concentration of cannabidiol, hemp oil is believed to have a low toxicity compared to conventional drugs. As such, hemp oil is often marketed as an alternative medicine. In addition to its potential uses, it may be applied topically on the skin to relieve itching, inflammation, and redness.

How do you find the best CBD products that are natural and can help you with pain, anxiety, depression, stress and other medical ailments? Well, you should look into the different kinds of products that are available, and always be sure to compare the best CBD oil brands. If anxiety is what you're looking to resolve, then try CBD oils from Gold Bee. Available in delicious kiwi and honey flavors, it's a delicious and natural way to ease anxiety and restlessness. Like edible snacks instead? Try the CBD gummies.

Honey: What’s all the buzz about?

It’s sticky, it’s sweet and it tastes great drizzled on everything from peanut butter sandwiches to pizza. Need an easy marinade? Whisk some together with soy sauce or grainy mustard. Want to wake up your cup of tea? Stir in a spoonful.

When it comes to versatile condiments, honey is in a league of its own.  

Where refined sugar tastes nice but offers no real nutritional value, honey has good-for-you vitamins and antioxidants, and it’s every bit as sweet. What’s not to love?

Here are a few more honey facts you might not know:

Show me the honey!

Sure, you’ve heard that honeybees stay busy making it, but have you ever learned how? Foraging bees buzz around gathering nectar from nearby flowers, storing it in a special “honey stomach” until they’re ready to drop it off at the hive. There, they pass the nectar mouth to mouth to the bees-in-waiting, who neatly and efficiently store it in a honeycomb until it’s ready to harvest.

The whole process is tidy and pretty sophisticated (except for the whole regurgitation bit). From there, beekeepers extract the honey from the comb and either bottle it themselves or ship it off to be processed.

Raw honey vs. processed: What’s the difference?

That bottle of processed honey might be less expensive and last longer on the shelf — filtration and pasteurization help remove impurities and bubbles for a smoother, clearer product — but there are a couple things to consider:

  1. Raw honey has more nutrients. Including healthy antioxidants that have been tied to all sorts of health benefits, from reducing inflammation to lowering your risk for heart disease.
  2. Processed honey may have added sugar. If your goal is to replace refined sugar with a more natural, nutritious alternative, be sure to check the label. Many commercial brands contain sugar or sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup.

Does local honey help ease seasonal allergies?

Some people like to recommend using local, raw honey to help combat seasonal sniffles. The idea is that local honey contains local pollen, and that over time a person can become less sensitive to its negative effects by consuming the pollen regularly. But studies show that it’s probably not effective.

On the plus side, buying local honey does support your local beekeepers!

Can honey be used to help a child’s sore throat?

Many parents give young kids a spoonful of honey to treat a sore throat, especially since most cough and cold medicines aren’t recommended for children under age 4. Studies actually show that it works, and not just for kids! Try mixing a spoonful into warm, decaffeinated tea or hot water with lemon to add another level of soothing care. But don’t forget: Honey shouldn’t be consumed by babies until after their first birthday, because it can contain bacteria their little tummies can’t handle.

Honey smells almost as good as it tastes.

We often use honey fragrance notes to sweeten our scents, and the May Scent of the Month really celebrates the sweet stuff!
