CBD Water: Is This Going to Be the Next Big Thing?

With the rise of CBD taking over the world (or at least in America), we have seen an increase in quirky and innovative products hitting the shelves over the past few years. It seems like states are beginning to embrace the wonder that is cannabidiol, and as such, it means companies are rolling out new trends on a monthly basis!

While some CBD products have indeed flopped, CBD water seems to be in it for the long haul, but does it have the potential to be the next big thing? We have taken a look at all you need to know about CBD water, and whether you need to make it part of your daily hydration!

What is CBD Water?

By now we assume that the vast majority of our readers are familiar with CBD, but for those who are just dipping their toe into the CBD water (do you get it?), let’s quickly run through things!

Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within the marijuana plant. Yes, the very same plant that can be the product of a mind-altering high, but don’t worry – CBD has no part in the high, so it makes an excellent treatment for those who don’t want their day-to-day life affected!

Over recent years, we have seen CBD infused-everything! From pizza and butter through to beer and soap, some of these products have managed to stick around, but many have been less than a success, so what about CBD water?

Unsurprisingly, CBD water is merely water infused with CBD; it is as simple as that! While some brands may choose to include other factors, big brand Kind Water also incorporate terpenes in their CBD water (terpenes are part of the marijuana plant that gives it its smell and taste, but they are also responsible for controlling how the cannabinoids function). However, in its basic form, CBD water is precisely what it sounds like!

What are the Benefits of CBD Water?

You may be wondering how CBD water is any different to taking normal CBD, and in a way you would be right in thinking there was very little difference! However, CBD water does offer specific benefits that regular CBD oil does not.

Let us explain: CBD water is not only full of the usual benefits of CBD, but it also interacts with our bodies more effectively, and this is where things can become slightly confusing!

CBD molecules in their standard form are basically too big for our bodies to effectively process, meaning that when we consume CBD through an edible (which is one the most popular methods of consumption, as it is known for tasting pretty bad on its own), we lose up to 90% of the CBD itself.

In the case of CBD water, the CBD compounds are first broken down into what are known as nanoparticles, which are then a hell of a lot easier for our bodies to absorb. This process is known as homogenizing, and it results in an extremely bioavailable product!

When we consume CBD in its bioavailable form, the nanoparticles are better able to cross the blood-brain barrier, meaning that we can benefit much more from the effects of the cannabinoid.

Pretty nifty, right?

Who is CBD Water for?

The main benefit of CBD water for the vast majority of consumers is the apparent increase in absorption, and therefore better results for those suffering from various medical complaints.

However, there are other benefits to taking CBD water that make it an ideal choice for many people. We have seen a pretty obvious direction for many brands that have chosen to target those in the sporting industry. CBD water has shown real potential as a hydration method for athletes, and many brands market their water as both a great way to hydrate on the go while easing sore muscles, stiffness and generally benefitting from CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties.

CBD water is also great for those who are a little wary of cannabis products! CBD is fairly well-known now, and most people accept that although it comes from the cannabis plant, it will not result in a high. However, for a lot of people, consuming CBD as oil or as an edible is too close to home, especially if they aren’t cannabis supporters.

CBD water is a new way to consider medicating with CBD; it is nothing like other products that are associated with the marijuana industry (unlike CBD edibles, which can often be compared to edibles that contain THC), CBD water is a product in and of itself. It is discreet and has no aftertaste, so really if it weren’t for the labeling, you would never even know you were consuming CBD at all!

Final Thoughts on CBD Water

CBD water is still in its infancy, so it is essential that we don’t get too carried away just yet! However, we have seen dozens of CBD products come and go, so you get a feel for those that are going to make waves in the industry, and for us, CBD water is indeed one to watch!

Discreet, medicinally beneficial, and hydrating! We have seen water infused with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes for years – it is time to make way for CBD!

Getting Started with CBD Oil

If you suffer from anxiety (like me), depression or pain and are looking to get started with CBD oil, you need information on how to buy CBD oil, or you’re simply looking to learn more about CBD products, you’ve arrived at the right place.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has significant medical benefits. CBD can be extracted from two different species of the Cannabis Sativa L plant, which include Cannabis and Hemp. Unlike its rival THC, CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

One of the main advantages of CBD is its non-psychoactive affect making it a great option for people looking for relief from inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, seizures, spasms, and other conditions.
As I mentioned above the primary distinction between Hemp and CBD oil is the part of the plant they are derived from and what parts of the plant are used to create the oil. Hemp oil is typically made from pressing cannabis seeds to extract the fatty oil from within, while some that have mastered the CBD extraction process also use the flowers as they contain high percentages of CBD. CBD oil, on the other hand, is usually made from the flowers of cannabis plant through various extraction methods.

How Does CBD Affect Your Body?

The way marijuana affects your body varies from person to person as it will often depend on genetics, tolerance to the cannabinoids, medical health, DNA, and more. It also depends on the way you consume the CBD, for example, the effects of vaping CBD are far different to smoking it in the form of high-CBD cannabis strains. 

CBD and the way it affects us is still of somewhat a mystery to researchers they still try to figure out how it effects the EndoCannabinoid system. During the previous century, it was discovered that our bodies have receptors within the brain and central nervous system. Specific cannabinoids such as CBD bind to those receptors and activate the EndoCannabinoid System (ECS). This then provides a wide range of psychological and physical benefits helping the body.

Without going into specifics, cannabinoids signal to the body to create endocannabinoids and build more receptors. This helps the body to limit things associated with pain and inflammation, repairs cells and provides a wide range of other health benefits. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD is thought to be the ultimate anti-inflammatory cannabinoid.

Medical Benefits of CBD

There is a misconception as to whether CBD can help treat patients, similar to pharmaceutical medicine, but thanks to the internet and a few different medical studies patients and researchers have been exposing their findings on how CBD oil is helping to cure a wide range of medical conditions.

The most popular story was the one of Charlotte Figi. At the time Charlotte was only 6 years old. As a little girl, she was experiencing over 300 epileptic seizures per week until she was successfully treated by a CBD-rich strain oil, later named Charlotte’s Web.

The high-quality CBD oil, changed her life, helping her to overcome a 6-year battle. Since her story hit the news, CBD and other cannabinoids of the cannabis plant are constantly being researched to understand how they can help to treat different medical conditions. As a matter of fact, CBD has been thought to help treat over 170 medical conditions, among them severe conditions such as Anorexia, Cancer, Arthritis, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and PTSD.

Recent studies have even shown that CBD, may cure life-threatening diseases by altering genes. Other studies have proven that it might even be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis and chronic pain.

The way that CBD works is that it interacts with receptors located in different parts of the central nervous system. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. Both reflect the areas of the brain they interact with such as the limbic system. When taking CBD, this cannabinoid locks in on these receptors and affects the body in different ways. For example, it can help to block the pain caused by specific medical conditions.

While numerous studies have shown promising results, it is important to understand that CBD research is still at premature stages. A 2011 study that researched CBD for fibromyalgia showed extremely promising results. 56 of 112 participants who took CBD in the form of oil saw a great reduction in their symptoms and pain, while those using traditional methods didn’t see hardly any improvement.

Can you Buy CBD if you live in an illegal state?

The process is not cut-&-dry, and but thanks to the Farm Bill of 2014, forms of CBD can now be delivered to your doorstep. Those that live in recreational states can purchase CBD cannabis oil which is high in potency and extremely effective for helping to treat severe medical conditions, while those that live in other states that are not medical or recreational can benefit from CBD hemp oil. CBD Hemp oil is perfect for helping to treat a wide range of conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.
