For many of us, a good night’s rest has become a rare luxury. You’ll find countless online tips out there, from simple advice like getting more exercise, to unpronounceabletw pills and medications. Unfortunately, many of these proposed solutions may only work for a few days, if at all. Then it’s right back to endless nights of you staring at the wall, thinking about that one embarrassing thing you did in sixth grade.

But what if I told you there was a solution? One that was easy to take and with little to no side effects? For those of you who’ve given up hope of ever finding a decent sleep again, I’d like to introduce you to CBD Softgels with Melatonin for Sleep.

CBD is derived from hemp, the part of the cannabis plant that contains no THC or psychoactive effects. Because of its safe use, it’s decriminalized almost everywhere, especially for its vast array of medicinal uses. You may have heard of CBD products being used to combat feelings of stress, anxiety, and even pain. That’s because CBD uses the natural cannabinoid system in your body to achieve homeostasis – a natural balance to bring peace of mind and a healthy physique. But these beneficial effects can influence your sleeping patterns too.

You may not even realize it, but daily stress and anxiety can be a huge detriment to your ability to fall asleep. Chances are, you could have been experiencing these feelings for so long that it just feels natural at this point. But CBD Oil has been shown to induce a calming, even euphoric state in its users. The release of cannabinoids in your system helps wash away any feelings of stress and anxiety, and instead naturally relaxes your mind and body. This results in both being able to fall asleep much faster and achieving longer REM cycles thanks to a tranquil mind and calm body.

Another problem plaguing those who can’t sleep at night is a lack of exercise during the day. It’s easy enough to tell yourself you’ll go for a jog or exercise at the gym, but breaking out of the cycle of grogginess can be a challenge. You can’t exercise because you’re too tired all day, but you’re tired all day because you can’t sleep at night due to lack of exercise. It’s a vicious cycle. Luckily, CBD Oil can break you out of that too. In small doses during the day, CBD Oil can help give you that boost of energy to get you through your days without the fatigue. CBD Oil can bring you mental clarity, focus, and alertness, so you can focus on making the most out of your day, and effectively tiring you out for your night’s sleep.

Because of these factors, CBD is more effective than many other similarly advertised products on the market. A popular one being melatonin, a natural sleep-aid supplement. However, though pharmaceutical melatonin is used for sleep, boosting natural melatonin levels in your brain signalling its time for you to go to bed, it doesn’t actually help with anxiety in the same way CBD does. It may even result in the opposite effect, making you extremely tired while your mind is still racing and your body is still wired, making for hours of awful sleeplessness.

But while CBD Oil alone may be enough to help you settle down for the night, we recommend a combination of both CBD and melatonin for those with severe lack of sleep or insomnia. CBD to help you get all your energy out during the day and wash away the stress at night, and melatonin to make you drowsy and signal to your body to go to sleep. Luckily, urCBD offers CBD Softgels with Melatonin, putting both sleep aids together in one handy, easy to take pill.

Try CBD Softgels with Melatonin now to see the results. And that's not all, because we also have a line of CBD tinctures and softgels to help you get more active during the day, the perfect set up to wind back down with CBD and melatonin at night. You can see first hand how getting energetic days and restful nights will change your life for the better.

CBD Oil is nature’s incredible natural remedy to pain, stress, and insomnia. This is because it contains all the essential ingredients we need to stay healthy, including fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and nutrients beneficial to our body. There’s actually one particular area of our body CBD Oil excels at improving. Despite its other curative properties often being given more recognition, CBD Oil has been proven to have amazing benefits for hair.

CBD Oil or its components are often ingredients in shampoos, conditioners, and oil gels. Including CBD Oil in your hair products, or using specialized CBD Oil for hair is a sure way to improve and pamper your hair game. 

That's why we have 3 specific reasons why CBD Oil should be an essential part of your hair maintenance.

Moisturize Your Scalp and Hair

Keeping your hair and scalp moisturized can be a frustrating task, especially in the colder, drier seasons. CBD Oil is often used as a skin moisturizer, but doubles as a moisturizer for your hair and scalp too. CBD Oil helps prevent hair and skin from losing its moisture and adds its own moisture-boosting properties as well. 

CBD Oil is easily absorbed by your hair and scalp, meaning you don’t have to put up with an inconvenient mess just to keep your hair looking clean and healthy.

Stimulate Hair Growth

It may sound too good to be true, but CBD Oil actually does enhance hair growth as well. CBD contains a number of properties to facilitate hair growth, chief among these being Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-8 fatty acids.

Hair itself is made of the protein keratin. CBD actually directly promotes growth of this protein, influencing hair growth at its most basic element. These supplementary nutrients combine with CBD Oil’s blood circulation improvement, ensuring the scalp is well nourished and supports natural hair growth.

Strengthen Hair to Prevent Breakage

There’s nothing more embarrassing than hair breakage, and you’ll want to do everything you can to prevent this. That means strengthening your hair and nourishing your scalp. This is actually maintained through the previous points of moisturizing and hair growth, both of which contribute to strong and healthy hair. 

Dry hair breaks easily, so moisturizing it can enhance its texture and help stop this from happening. Likewise, a healthy scalp and active hair growth through regular CBD head and hair rinses can ensure this process continues to make your hair look and feel its best.

Ultimately, the ways in which CBD Oil can benefit your hair are pretty simple, but nonetheless effective. The natural fatty acids and proteins in CBD Oil make your hair moisturized, promote growth, and effectively strengthen your hair. Your hair will never be healthier and more attractive than when its washed and supplemented with CBD Oil.

Are you thinking about beginning to take CBD Oil, but don't know where to start? While CBD is generally harmless even in overly large doses, it can make you drowsy as a side effect. To avoid this and still gain CBD's other benefits like mental focus and pain relief, you'll want to take the correct dosage every time. But how much should you take, and in what form?

CBD effects everyone differently. It's impossible to say what dosage is right for everyone, especially when first starting. You might also be curious about how long you can expect to feel its effects. These questions have a wide range of answers depending on your body and the method in which you take it. Fortunately, experimenting with this is safe and easy.

 The CBD Tinctures available for sale on the urCBD marketplace are the perfect introduction for any new CBD user. Tinctures allow anyone to carefully and precisely administer and experiment with their doses. They also allow veteran CBD users to take as little or as much as they want at a time, or even add it to their teas or smoothies. For new urCBD customers though, just one drop a day is the perfect amount to start your first week of CBD. By initiating with this small dosage, you'll gradually determine how much CBD your body needs.

While of course, everyone's experience will differ, using a CBD Oil Tincture under the tongue will generally take about 15 to 20 minutes for you to feel its effects, relatively faster than other methods. These effects should last for about four to six hours of calming pain relief and mental clarity.

For some, just one drop of CBD a day is enough for them. If not, after a week of daily drops, you can increase to two drops a day. We recommend that you space this out with one in the morning and one at night. For many, this dosage will be the right amount for them to get the most out of their CBD. A drop in the morning can energize and focus your mind for the day ahead, and another in the evening can ease you down and help provide a restful sleep. 

However, if that's not enough after you've finished your two weeks of experimentation with no unwanted drowsiness side effects, you can feel free to experiment with more drops at a time. At this point, you may want to add it to beverages or meals. You can also move on to other CBD supplements. urCBD offers a variety of softgels of different flavors and dosages to compliment any lifestyle.

Softgels are the perfect method to upgrade to after Tinctures, once you're sure of how much CBD Oil you want with each dose. Softgels eliminate the tedium of ingesting multiple drops, are more discreet, perfect for CBD on the go, and easier to add to your meals and other daily vitamin intakes. Softgels can easily be implemented into your regular nutritional supplement routine, allowing CBD to integrate with any lifestyle seamlessly. Though they make take a bit longer to kick in, at around 25-30 minutes, their effects also typically last longer for around six to eight hours.

From here, now that you know CBD works for you, we recommend further experimentation with other CBD products. CBD can come in many forms that take advantage of its specific natural healing properties. urCBD also offers a CBD Balm with Lavender and Eucalyptus. This Balm utilizes CBD's natural inflammation and pain relief properties to treat skin and joint and muscle pain more directly than other methods. urCBD also offers CBD Softgels with Melatonin for Sleep, employing CBD's stress and mind relief with Melatonin's sleep aid effects to give you the most comfortable and relaxing nights possible. ­­­­­­­

If any of these products interest you, including starting your CBD intake with daily tinctures or continuing an ongoing routine with either Tinctures, Softgels or other options, check out our catalog on urCBD for detailed information and options. It's never too late to feel the benefits of CBD, and it's versatile enough to fit any lifestyle or need.

Obesity is an epidemic in the United States. Whether it's the prevalence of fast food and unhealthy eating habits or our busy lives leaving us with no time for fitness, the average American's lifestyle is not a healthy one. Subsequently, the weight loss industry is worth billions, as countless health marketers sell us seemingly infinite weight loss products. Yet there still isn't a solution that beats good old diet and exercise.

Or is there? 

We know CBD helps with reducing pain and stress levels, along with a variety of other similar ailments, but can it really help with weight loss too? After all, cannabis is typically associated with the "munchies," so can we realistically expect the opposite reaction with CBD? 

The answer is more complicated than you think, but studies have shown that YES, CBD can help you lose weight. Or even gain it, if you're underweight. It may sound too good to be true, but the science backs up its versatility as a weight management tool. 

Studies have shown that the Endocannabinoid System, the system through which CBD affects you, is also the most crucial physiological aspect of your body. It's through this system that CBD can bring about such positive results, including better sleep and focus, pain and stress relief, and yes, weight loss. Research has shown the reason for this being that the Endocannabinoid System is in charge of the body's "homeostasis" – or keeping everything in balance. That means it either speeds up or slows down your metabolism as needed to keep your body in perfect weight.

But that's not all. One study on the subject has shown that CBD directly impacts the body's fat burning process. Researchers found that CBD actually stimulates proteins and fat genes to speed up the oxidation and breakdown of fat. It also increases the mitochondria count and activity in your body's cells to burn more calories. If that’s not all, the same study revealed that CBD reduces the expression of proteins in the generation of fat cells.

Even further studies have shown that CBD directly increases your rate of metabolism. It’s been proven that CBD stimulates specific areas of the body involved in metabolisms like your skeletal muscles and gastrointestinal tract. In turn, compounds absorbed from food during the digestion process metabolize faster, meaning you take on less weight over time.

In short, all these processes together mean that yes, CBD actually can be used for weight loss. Of course, that doesn't mean you can pig out on the couch all day and think CBD will solve all your problems. CBD is an excellent supplement to a healthy lifestyle and should be used to help you maintain it. It might not replace a healthy diet entirely, but it will make it easier to sustain one. So try adding CBD to your healthy lifestyle today and see the difference yourself.

Do you enjoy the relaxing and therapeutic effects of CBD oil? Wondering if you can pass these effects on to your faithful canine friend?  Not to worry because we’re here to tell you using CBD oil on your dog is totally safe and actually recommended in certain instances.  Much like in humans, CBD oil can be used to treat pets like dogs and cats with a number of ailments. Pets suffering from cancer, epilepsy and seizures, skin and coat problems, digestive issues, joint and muscle debilities, or just general pain and inflammation can all be treated with CBD oil.

In fact, CBD oil works just as well on most mammals. This is because we share the same Endocannabinoid System, the process through with cannabinoids like CBD are processed. When CBD enters this system, it reacts with its receptors in a completely natural process, resulting in the calming and relief effects CBD is known for. This system is found in humans, dogs, cats, even horses!

Because safety is guaranteed, many pet owners start their animals with small doses of CBD oil to see if their furry friends react well to it. Though CBD won’t produce any serious side effects in pets, overestimating how much CBD your dog can intake might result in some sedative-like effects and make them overly tired. While this is of course only temporary, you can avoid this by ensuring your pet is given the right amount from the onset.

A handy way of determining how much CBD oil your dog should take can be found here:

  • 05mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (low)
  • 125mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (mid)
  • 25mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (high)

 

Although just like humans, every dog will respond differently to CBD, so it’s best to start low and experiment with whatever suits them best. These doses can be administered twice daily, in the morning and at night for the best results.

After determining that CBD works for your pet, you can move them onto specialized pet CBD products. CBD made specifically for your animal of choice can help give proper doses and ensure the best quality.

And it’s not just CBD oil that works for dogs. While CBD oil can safely be administered under your pet’s tongue, actually doing so might be a hassle. Thankfully, CBD oil can also be harmlessly mixed into their food. It may take a bit longer for its effect to show, as it has to be digested first, but this method makes integrating CBD oil into your pet’s life as seamless as possible.

There’s even special CBD food and treats for pets, making it simple to both adjust the dosage and get your pet enthusiastic about having it. Along with this, there’s sprays and balms to give them healthy and beautiful coats.

CBD is already greatly improving the lives of people who might otherwise be suffering, so it’s a no-brainer that we’d want to offer that same relaxation and pain-relief to our pets too. CBD can make the difference in giving your pets longer, happier, and healthier lives. So don’t be afraid to share the curative wonders of CBD with your pet. They’d thank you for it if they could.

CBD can come in countless forms. If you can imagine a product, you can probably find its CBD alternative. There's so many to choose from you might be a little overwhelmed by your options and where to start.  Thankfully, we've got 10 of the best ways you can experience CBD and their use cases. You can pick which product works best for you, but honestly, we recommend them all!

 

Crystals

Crystals, or isolates, are the purest form of CBD at around 98 to 99 percent. At this point, they can be made into a variety of other applications, such as by mixing with oils and e-liquids, vaporized, or made into edibles. Crystals are great for experienced users who want total control over how much and what form they want from their CBD.

 

Tinctures

Tinctures allow you to ingest CBD oil under the tongue, while more effectively controlling the dosage. Tinctures can come in a variety of flavors and excel with those experimenting with exactly how much CBD is right for them.

 

Concentrates

If you find regular tinctures just aren't strong enough for you, concentrates allow the highest doses of CBD - up to ten times more than other products! Concentrates are perfect for busy customers who only have time for one CBD intake a day.

 

Capsules

Capsules are a very non-intrusive way to implement CBD into your daily life. It's simple to add a pill to your daily supplements, and ideal for customers who know the exact amount of CBD they'd like with every dose and don't want to measure it out every time. 

 

Edibles

Edibles come in a vast variety of selections. The most popular edibles are gummy bears, but you can get CBD bars, cookies, brownies, cereal – anything you'd want to snack on, you can get with CBD! Edibles are an enjoyable introduction to new or casual CBD users.

 

CBD Gum

The easiest and most discreet way to add CBD to your lifestyle. CBD gum is convenient for anyone unable or uncomfortable with taking tinctures or edibles and want fast-acting daily effects. Gum allows the CBD to be absorbed through the inside of your mouth, and thus its results are apparent even faster than when ingesting.

 

Vapors

Vaping CBD is definitely the most fashionable way to take it. Though the effects are typically less than when compared to ingested products, CBD vapor bypasses your digestive system altogether and works much faster. Vaping allows the user to take CBD casually and in style.

 

Creams

Creams are an excellent use of CBD due to its curative skin properties. CBD creams can help with pain and inflammation, anti-aging, and even acne. Though topicals generally benefit more with skin and other exterior issues, you can also find solutions that carry the CBD through the surface of the skin for general use.

 

Soaps

Like creams, CBD soap is ideal for skincare. CBD soap naturally fits into your hygienic body care routine, allowing you to feel its therapeutic effects without changing your lifestyle. Because CBD soap doesn't dehydrate your skin or strip its natural oils, it's an effective moisturizer in addition to its pain and curative relief. You can experience all this while luxuriating in a bath for maximum relaxation.

 

Patches

For even longer lasting relief, there are CBD patches. The average patch can be worn for up to four days, slowly allowing the CBD to soak through the skin over the hours for continuous effects. Patches are optimal for those unable or forgetful of taking regular doses through other means, such as children or the elderly.

 

The magic of CBD is in its versatility. Regardless of your use case or expertise, you can always find the perfect CBD product that fits your needs.You can find many of these products and even more on our urCBD product page!

You may have heard about CBD and it’s amazing health properties, but what is it really? If it comes from cannabis, shouldn't it make you high? Well, don't worry, because we're here to dispel any concerns you have about CBD and make you a believer.  Cannabidiol, or CBD as it's commonly known, does, in fact, come from Cannabis sativa – the marijuana plant. Despite this, it offers all the benefits of the plant, but without the intoxicating side-effects.  That's because the cannabis plant is made of two primary compounds, cannabidiol as mentioned earlier, and tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short. In fact, it's the THC aspect of cannabis that's notorious for giving users that feeling of being "high. Unfortunately, cannabis is often only associated with plants bred with significant traces of the substance, leading to negative stigma.

 

Alternatively, cannabis plants can even be grown to favor higher quantities of CBD instead, with almost no traces of THC. This plant is called hemp, and only contains a maximum level of 0.3% THC.  While cannabis high in THC is infamous for inflicting impaired motor skills, changes in perception, heightened moods, and more adverse effects, CBD instead offers its users many positive results, including:

  • Relief
  • Relaxation
  • Stress elimination
  • Pain reduction
  • Mindfulness
  • Better sleep
  • Emotional homeostasis
  • And many more health benefits

CBD has been used to treat ailments like severe acne, seizures, even cancer patients. Some users have started referring to CBD as the "miracle drug" for its incredible, natural healing properties.  So, if cannabidiol is entirely non-psychoactive, what does it actually feel like?  Well, that's the beauty of it, it barely feels like anything! Many first-time users of CBD will be confused as to whether it's working at all – until they realize that any afflictions that were bothering them, such as pain or stress, have disappeared.  Even at higher doses, CBD only offers its users feelings of comfort, as waves of relaxation flow throughout their body. Unlike THC, CBD affects the latent relaxants in your own body, increasing the level of endocannabinoids your body usually produces, so it's completely natural.  Overall, the effects of CBD are almost too good to believe. It offers all the positive results of cannabis, with the only potential side effects being contentment and relaxation. It's 100% natural, 100% non-psychoactive, and the perfect aid to get you through your day (and help you settle down at night).

 

Interested in trying CBD and seeing its amazing, non-intrusive benefits for yourself? Get in contact with UrCBD, and we can offer you an amazing number of products to fit your requirements!
