If you’ve decided to give CBD for inflammation a try, you should know that you have a variety of options available to you. CBD oil for inflammation can be easy to dose and ingest, or you may want to try edibles like gummies or mints to help find the relief you are looking for. Garden of Life has both types of products with their inflammatory response blend included.
Perhaps you want to try something topical, a CBD cream for inflammation, for instance. Current research gives us reason to believe that applying CBD topically could be just as beneficial for reducing inflammation as ingesting it. All you have to do is find a CBD cream or lotion that works for you.
And if you want a product line specifically created for the type of inflammation athletes experience, pro soccer player Rachael Rapinoe’s CBD brand Mendi is tested to be THC-free so that athletes can find relief without having to worry about failing drug tests.
For those who aren’t as worried about avoiding THC, Mendi does offer a full spectrum line as well, which is a good reminder: full spectrum products can contain trace amounts of THC and should be avoided by those not allowed to partake in the use of THC.
Selecting the right CBD dosage for inflammation can take a bit of trial and error, as everything from gender to weight and what you ate on any given day can impact the effect you experience. We recommend starting low and slow with your dosing, building that dosage up until you achieve the desired effects. We do have a dosing page that can help you get started.
Remember: Always talk to your doctor about any medication or drug you add to your daily routine. This includes CBD. Medical practitioners aren’t going to judge you, but they do need to know what you are taking in case of potential interactions.
