When Should You Take CBD?

When should I take CBD? How often should I take it? These are extremely common questions that newcomers to CBD, as well as those already familiar with CBD’s effects, tend to ask.

Let’s start by diving into CBD usage during the day. Which means, yes, CBD in the morning. Sounds a little counter-intuitive at first glance, seeing as CBD has many calming properties. But it’s true. While the broad perception of CBD usage involves its relaxing and calming anti-stress effects, some people actually feel a rush of energy from CBD due to the clarity and relaxed focus it provides them. To those people, CBD is right up there with their balanced breakfast and first cup of coffee.

Now, to jump to the other end of the day, many people like taking their CBD in the evening, after dinner, when they are the most primed for relaxation and are ready to wind down for bed. Then there are some that take CBD in the middle of the day to either relax after a stressful morning of work or to give themselves focus to make it through the final few hours of their job.

What we are getting at is that when it comes to what time of the day to take CBD, we can give you the rationale, but it’s ultimately going to be up to you what time works best.

Now on to the question of how often you should take CBD. Again, this one depends on your specific body type, your eating habits, and other factors related to your health. Generally, though, you should try lower doses of CBD products once or twice a day and work your way up until you feel the desired effect.

Research on CBD is just gearing up and over the next few years, there may yet be a specific set of guidelines that work best for different sets of people. But if you want to really know where to start and how much you should be taking & how often, head on over to J & A Vapes and talk with one of our CBD experts and they will be able to guide you through your CBD journey.

Is CBD Safe For Pets?

Right now, hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD are making a big impact all around the United States. As CBD products have become more widely available in the past few years, so to has the research extolling the benefits of CBD in reducing stress and aiding in anxiety & depression reduction. This is great news for us, but what about our pets?

Well, to understand if CBD is safe for pets, we have to understand what makes CBD effective in the first place. It is actually not the CBD oil or any chemical itself, but the effects on the endocannabinoid system found in our bodies that helps with the releasing of serotonin. Also, since these receptors are found in the lower part of the brain where breathing is controlled, it is almost impossible to actually overdose on CBD.

So now that we have a general idea about how CBD works, we can get into whether it is useful and safe for pets. The short answer is yes. Pets have the same kinds of endocannabinoid systems as any other living creature, making the application of CBD oils and products as safe for pets as it is for their owners.

But, there is one thing you will want to look out for when looking to purchase CBD products for your pets and that is how pure the CBD product is. Look for products that have done third party lab tests so that you are able to see if your pet’s CBD product has been shown to have any contaminants, including Solvents, Pesticides, Toxins, Fungus, or even Heavy Metals.

So just like with CBD products for humans, animals can see the same types of anti-anxiety and antidepressant qualities and benefits. While, with anything pet related, you should make sure to do a little research into exactly which products you give to your pets; that’s where the experts at J&A Vapes come in! Come down to one of our locations today and let us help you find the perfect CBD products for your pets.

Can CBD Help With Anxiety?

girl screaming in the dark

We all have anxiety. It’s a natural part of life and a feeling that, despite not exactly being pleasant, is as natural as feeling happy or sad. But it is what we do about our anxiety that really matters. Often, people are prescribed medications that can have adverse side effects or cost an arm and a leg, but not work at all in treating the anxiety. But what about CBD?

Some of you may have been hearing a lot of talk lately about how CBD (or Cannabidiol) can help with anxiety and stress. Is this true? What are the side effects, if any?

CBD works by, effectively, amplifying signaling through serotonin receptors; allowing for anxiety relief and mood enhancement. In animal trials, CBD has also been shown to promote neurogenesis, which involves regeneration of neurons in the brain’s hippocampus. This can potentially lead to better memory, clearer thoughts & anti-depressive qualities.

A few of the disorders CBD is suggested to aid with include: Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Certain Types of Depression.

Going back to actual human tests, many studies in recent years have revealed that, in groups of people given CBD to consume vs those who were given a placebo, the group that was given CBD showed significantly greater cerebral blood flow patterns consistent with anti-anxiety, as well as a decrease in social anxiety when presented with a public speaking assignment. Meanwhile, the groups given the placebo showed no change in behavior, nor acted more relaxed or stressed out when given the same task.

While many more human trials need to be conducted to keep up with the growing, more-common use of CBD products in 2019 and beyond, initial human and animal testing has certainly shown that CBD certainly presents a natural, viable alternative to current medications.

Learn The Benefits of CBD From Staten Island’s CBD Capital, J&A Vapes

You may have heard a lot of talk about CBD, and specifically CBD oils and edibles, lately. This is mainly due to the recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill that now allows CBD and hemp with less than 0.3% THC to be sold in most states. So what exactly is CBD and why is everyone so excited by it?

CBD stands for cannabinoid and is one of 100 natural chemicals found in hemp. Specifically, when people refer to marijuana, they are often referring to two types of natural chemicals: CBD and THC. THC is the psychoactive part of weed, while CBD is benign in that area; thus allowing CBD and CBD products to be used solely for their various pain and stress relieving effects, without any psychoactive side effects.

One of the main benefits touted by supporters of CBD is that it helps treat pain relief. CBD has been known to help with inflamed sores, joint pain, arthritis, and even multiple sclerosis. CBD works by, according to Healthline.com, “impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters,” thus relieving certain common types of pain in the body.

Another huge benefit that gets talked about often is relieving stress and anxiety. It is well known that smoking marijuana can greatly help with stress, anxiety, and public engagement. But for people who don’t smoke or don’t want the – even mild – effects of any THC, CBD oils and edibles offer a great alternative.

Looking to clear your skin up? Sounds out of left field, but believe it or not, CBD has been known to cure acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. CBD’s natural factor also means that, unlike prescriptions and certain creams, there are not the same types of side effects at play. The only side effects common to CBD at this time are possible Diarrhea, Fatigue, and Changes in Appetite.

Now that you have a good primer on what CBD is and why people are talking about it, we encourage you to come into J&A Vapes today and chat with our knowledgeable staff, hang out in our lounge, and try out some CBD oils yourself. We are the premier Staten Island CBD Shop, and will be happy to answer any questions you have about the product!
