Steve Marchi is one of the founders of The CBD Marketplace. He is a former collegiate athlete, sales professional, entrepreneur, hockey coach, and an avid runner and cyclist.  Steve’s story is part of The CBD Marketplace’s Blog Series on “How I Use CBD.” Check out our other customer testimonials here.

  What made you start taking CBD?

Steve: I learned about CBD while looking for an all natural and holistic approach to pain relief. After years of being active playing hockey, weight lifting, running, and cycling, I found myself taking 2400mg of Ibuprofen daily just to get out of bed and make it through my office job and workouts. Also, roughly 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, an inflammatory auto-immune condition, and since then I have had a strong desire to improve my overall wellness through diet and clean eating.

Describe your daily CBD routine, products, and dosage?

Steve: When I am not testing new products and brands for The CBD Marketplace, I tend to do a CBD reset and get back on to a regimen I enjoy taking. I typically work out in the mornings before starting my work day and take an oil for a pre workout, using Elixinol’s Liposome product. Five pumps provides me with 5mg’s of full spectrum CBD, and as a liposome, my body absorbs 3-5 times as much CBD due to increased bioavailability. It is comparable to 15-25mg’s of a standard CBD oil. Post workout, I either add CBD oil to my coffee, or use OLEO’s CBD Coconut Water with added electrolytes for hydration to aid in my recovery.

Adding CBD as a supplement to my healthy meals and snacks helps me conquer my day. When it is time to finally unwind for the day, I will often take a CBD Capsule with dinner or a late snack, allowing it to digest with the fatty acids I consume and to ensure a sound night of sleep.

How has CBD changed your life?

Steve: I have been able to find better pain relief and anti-inflammatory benefits than I felt taking NSAIDS and other often prescribed pharmaceutical drugs. I have not taken a single pain reliever outside of CBD since June 2017. I feel that I sleep better and wake each morning with less pain and a drive to get better every day. My workouts have improved, I feel lighter on my feet, and more in tune with my body. I have also noticed an increase in mental clarity and a testosterone boost in my personal life. In my business life, my sales have increased 75% and I am convinced this is due to confidence in my mind, body, and soul. I can honestly say that I have never felt this great in my entire life.

Have you recommended friends and family to use CBD products?

Steve: CBD has become a major part of my life and drive for improved health and wellness. I have numerous friends and family now taking CBD with similar life changing results. We started The CBD Marketplace to share the benefits of CBD with our friends and family and I am blown away by how many lives we have helped improve. Outside of my own benefits, I am most proud that both of my parents and grandparents are now taking CBD. My grandmother conquered pancreatic cancer and is now taking CBD as a supplement post surgery and chemo treatments. She is alive, happy, and well in hopes that CBD can extend her life for more great grandchildren. My grandfather suffers from Gout, an inflammatory disease, and he is able to sleep much better at night using CBD when he suffers from pain. My greatest hope is that I am able to share with others the benefit of living better and healthier lives and using CBD as a conduit.

HOW many likes did this Eggstagram post get? The Instagram world was taken by storm last week as a photo of an egg gained 49+ million likes and became the new record holder for most likes. Congrats to the folks who created world_record_egg!

Are Eggs Good For Me?

That got us thinking at The CBD Marketplace, are eggs good for us? In recent years, the concerns regarding high cholesterol have been squashed (or fried?). According to Healthline, eggs should no longer be demonized. Eggs are:

  • Egg-Ceptional Superfood
  • Do NOT cause Heart Disease
  • Rich in Unique Antioxidants 
  • Among the MOST Nutritious Foods on the Planet
  • Filling and Help you LOSE Weight

It sounds like we should ALL be eating eggs! In fact, eating eggs that are high in omega 3's and 6's pair extremely well with CBD to help improve your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Check out this article from Project CBD on how diet and omega fatty acids help improve your ECS. 

What to Look for When Buying Eggs

The egg aisle in the grocery store can be extremely overwhelming and can make you want to crack! Alright, enough of the egg puns. But seriously, from white to brown, free range to pasture raised, then organic, omegas, and a flurry of sizes, not to mention vegetarian fed hens, how do you pick out the best egg for you? 

Some of the best information we've found is from Dr. James Hamblin at the Atlantic. Check out his article here for a guide on what to look for when buying eggs! 

Want to Add CBD to Your Breakfast Routine? Shop CBDMP!

After swinging by your local market and finding the best dozen without any cracked eggs, consider adding CBD to your next breakfast! You can learn more about the benefits of CBD here, or start shopping at The CBD Marketplace now.

When most consumers use a CBD oil product, they are looking to take advantage of CBD’s natural wellness properties to improve their quality of life. However, if you aren’t careful, you could spend your money on products that contain little to no CBD or, even worse, pose a threat to your health. That is why the CBD Marketplace sells products that have been certified by 3rd party labs.

CBD oil products are sold as supplements in the U.S. Because of this, there is little in the way of oversight into the CBD market when it comes to verifying that products contain what they say they do or that they are even safe to take.

With hundreds of CBD products now on the shelves of health food stores and wellness shops, sold at gyms, infused into a range of consumer products, and available widely online, how do you know which CBD brands to trust for you and your family?

The best CBD brands all share an important characteristic: they are tested by a 3rd party testing lab to ensure that they contain consistent levels of active ingredients and that they are free of any contaminants that can negatively affect the health of the user.

What do you need to know when buying CBD online? Learn more here.

3rd party testing protects the integrity of CBD products by verifying that they contain the levels of CBD listed on the label, so customers get the same CBD experience each time they use the product and feel confident that they are getting their money’s worth.

Thoroughly testing for contaminants is crucial for any consumer product. With hemp products, it is even more important. That is because hemp, like all cannabis plants, is an efficient bioaccumulator, meaning that it can efficiently pull and concentrate nutrients, as well as potential contaminants, from the soil. When the hemp’s oil is extracted from the plant, these contaminants can end up in dangerously high levels in finished CBD products.

To protect against health hazards from residual contaminants leached from the soil during cultivation or picked up throughout the manufacturing process, top quality CBD brands test their products using 3rd party labs to look for contaminants like heavy metals, Mycotoxins, mold, mildew, fungus, yeast, E.coli, Salmonella, toxic solvents, and more.

The CBD Marketplace only carries products that have been certified by 3rd party labs, so our customers know that they are getting only the safest and most trusted CBD products on the market.

Our quick guide to CBD gives you all the basics, so you can decide if CBD is right for you.

We know you have a lot of questions about CBD. Even as CBD grows in popularity around the globe, many people are still learning about the amazing health and wellness benefits provided by a daily CBD supplement.

Here we answer your most common CBD questions.  

What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is a cannabinoid, a group of over 100 compounds found within the cannabis plant, including hemp and marijuana. Most of these cannabinoids occur only naturally in trace amounts. Others, like CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), can be found in higher levels in the cannabis plant.

When cannabinoids are found in plants like cannabis, they are called phytocannabinoids. However, the body makes its own cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids. The body produces two main endocannabinoids: anandamide and 2-AG. THC mimics the natural effects of anandamide, while CBD produces similar effects to 2-AG.

These endocannabinoids interact with with your body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for maintaining homeostasis (balance) within the body.  

What Are the Benefits of CBD?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a signaling system that helps the body maintain a healthy balance in the face of both internal and external influences. It is connected to a number of important functions, including sleep, metabolism and appetite, mood, memory, immune response, the cycle of cell creation and death, and more.

Supplementing this endocannabinoid system with phytocannabinoids can boost your body’s ability to maintain this balance and allows you to function at your peak. In fact, adding phytocannabinoids like CBD to your body increases the number of cannabinoid receptors in your body, allowing the ECS to work more efficiently.

Researchers are just starting to understand the implications of the effects cannabinoids like CBD, but those who have tried CBD have reported a drop in prescription drug use and a healthy quality of life.

Because CBD products are sold as supplements in most markets, we aren’t allowed to make claims about CBD’s ability to treat or prevent medical conditions. We urge you to do your own research from a resource you can trust to see if CBD is right for you.

Is CBD Safe for Daily Use?

CBD is both non-psychoactive and non-toxic, so CBD Marketplace customers can feel comfortable taking the CBD products offered on our site every day.  

Unlike its illicit cousin THC, CBD does not create a “high”, meaning that its benefits can be enjoyed by everyone. This is because CBD and THC each interact with the receptors in the ECS in different ways and, therefore, provide different effects.

CBD has been demonstrated to be non-toxic in doses of 1000 mg or more, and users have reported no significant side effects with daily use of up to 300 mg.

Carefully read the labels of the CBD products available in our store. They will contain important information on the standard serving size and CBD content for each individual product. However, the right serving size of CBD will be up to you and your body.

Feel free to increase your daily servings of CBD as needed, just remember that most CBD products contain trace levels of THC. Taking more than the suggested serving may increase your intake of THC as well. If you are concerned about exposing you or your loved ones to THC, the CBD Marketplace also carries an assortment of THC-free products as well.

How Do I Take CBD?

There are a number of different ways to take CBD, each with its own advantages. Here at the CBD Marketplace, we’ve gathered together the most popular CBD product types from the most popular brands together in one place – including CBD oils and tinctures, capsules edibles, vapes, and more – so finding the perfect CBD product for you is easier than ever. We even offer CBD products specifically developed for pets.

Regardless of how you ingest CBD, once the CBD is absorbed and enters the bloodstream, it is carried throughout the body to be used by the ECS to provide its beneficial effects.

Is There Research?

Even though we are still just beginning to understand the incredible benefits cannabinoids have on the body, there is mounting research on the functions and effects of cannabinoids and how they may be used for a wide variety of medical conditions. You can find this research on the website for the National Institute of Health, where over 20,000 studies and reviews have been published on the topic of cannabinoids. You can search the studies here.

Are CBD Products Legal?

All the CBD products in the CBD Marketplace are legal in the U.S. and in many international markets. Sold as dietary supplements in the U.S., these products follow FDA guidelines, including regulations on labelling and on making medical claims. Although all our CBD products are federally compliant, we recommend you check your local laws for any special conditions for sale.

Do I Need a Medical Marijuana Card?

You do not need to obtain a medical marijuana card or visit a dispensary in order to get CBD products. Because the CBD products in our store are made from hemp, rather than marijuana, they are not regulated by state medical marijuana laws the same way as marijuana products, so you can buy them online and have them shipped directly to your home.

How Do I Buy CBD?

You can buy CBD products online at the CBD Marketplace. Here at the CBD Marketplace, we’ve gathered together the best CBD brands available, so you can feel confident shopping our online store. Want to learn more about CBD and the products in our shop? Visit our blog now.
