CBD – A Better & Safer Alternative?
CBD Education Series
With the many benefits that CBD provides, it’s no surprise that so many Canadians are now using CBD in their daily self-care routine.
One of the most common uses for CBD is for pain relief. Compared to prescription drugs and painkillers which often come with major side effects, CBD has relatively few, which may make it a safer plant-based remedy without compromising on pain relief.
Taking common painkillers like Ibuprofen has become a quick fix & common way to relieve the body of pain. But it’s important to be aware that taking them too often can actually do damage to the body by causing stress & weakening the immune system. Our bodies also build a tolerance to chemical medications meaning that over time, your body might need more of the painkiller to get the same effect or even lead to a dependence/ addiction.
With little to no side effects, CBD is a safe plant-based remedy that doesn’t compromise on effectiveness. Rather than causing imbalances in your body the way chemical products tend to do CBD gives back to your body, helping it ease back into balance naturally.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s a naturally occurring compound found in hemp that interacts with the human body via the endocannabinoid system. It’s responsible for regulating sleep, our immune systems, and even our moods. We also naturally produce CBD in our bodies.
CBD provides many benefits:
- Eases the mind & body
- Relieves anxiety & calms nerves
- Relieves pain
- Soothes sore muscles & cramps
- Great for post-workout reset
- Improves sleep

A CBD Product for Every Need:
A good quality CBD is an all-natural remedy free of preservatives & artificial flavors. It’s non-addictive & psychoactive, meaning it won’t make you feel high (THC free)! It also comes in many forms, for example, oils, tinctures, edibles, creams & vaporized.
The variety of products makes it possible to consume CBD in many different ways. It can be taken orally by dropping it under the tongue or it can even be added to food & drinks. It can also be vaporized meaning it doesn’t have to be ingested at all.
CBD creams & topicals are applied directly to the skin. Applying it directly to the skin has become a common way to relieve arthritis. Creams & topicals are an effective way to soothe aches & pains while nourishing damaged skin. They can aid in healing conditions like acne, moisturize & relieve dry, itchy skin & reduce swelling & redness.
