Fat based vs water soluble
Regular cannabinoids are fat-based and they do not mix with water. Ojai Energetics has figured out how to make it soluble so that it is better absorbed by the body.
Fat based oils work really well for skin applications but they have poor bioavailability so when consumed, the body can’t use it.
Benefits of CBD
It selectively modulates the pain and inflammatory response in a manner that keeps you safe.
The endocannabinoid system in our body’s primary function is to maintain homeostasis. It’s essentially the control system for the body.
When and how to take CBD
You can take it first thing in the morning and the effects will last all day. But if you are needing a top-up later in the day, you can do that too. It is all dependent on your needs, you have to listen to your body.
You can start off by taking a whole dropper, but again, you will have to see how you react to it.
A healthy endocannabinoid system must be nourished with full-spectrum CBD, and leads to the overall optimization of the entire body from neurogenesis in the brain, to healthy sleep, and healthy stress response for day to day life to name a few. This is the key to keeping our bodies biologically optimized. CBD has multiple curves of efficacy— the ability to produce a desired or intended result. The optimal dose is balanced in the middle of the curve, or ‘sweet’ spot.
