11 Apr Using CBD While You Detox
CBD supplements help keep your body running and functioning at its best while you’re following a detox diet.
Detoxification diets, often times referred to simply as a “detox,” have become popular over recent years. A detox typically involves following a strict diet regimen over a set period of time so that body can flush out the gut and digestive system, eliminating toxins.
Many people who periodically participate in detoxes have found that simultaneously incorporating CBD supplements into their routine can help support the system that keeps their bodies and their functions in a balanced state to complement the cleanse.
What is a Detox?
A detox is a step-by-step process during which a person follows a particular dietary program with the goal of ridding the body of toxins and other unhealthy substances. Some use detox as a way to jump-start their efforts to follow a long-term healthy diet.
The specifics around detox diets can vary, but they typically involve a short period of fasting followed by a period of consuming nothing but raw vegetables, fruit, fruit juices, and water. Some detoxes call for herbs and other supplements. Others involve colon cleanses, or enemas, to empty the intestines.
People have claimed to feel better, less stressed, and more energized after participating in a detox. The elimination of highly processed, fried, and high-calorie low-nutrition foods alone can help people feel better.
Medical professionals are conflicted on whether detoxes are safe, and whether there’s real evidence that detox diets are effective for removing toxins from the body. Fasting can lead to fatigue and eventually vitamin and mineral deficiencies. According to Mayo Clinic, our bodies have a natural detoxification process: the kidneys and liver effectively filter and eliminate most ingested toxins.
If deciding to follow a detox diet, be sure that the one you select is based on science and backed by medical professionals. It is recommended that you discuss a detox diet with your physician before beginning.
Benefits of Taking CBD During Detox
Taking daily CBD supplements may help you feel at your best while you’re following your detox diet.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the all-natural cannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp. Carefully extracted from hemp’s stalks and seeds, CBD oil is non-toxic, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive, making it a safe and healthy choice while you detox.
Like all cannabinoids, CBD works with our endocannabinoid system, a regulatory network that keeps a wide array of our functions in homeostasis. Functions like mood, sleep, immune response, pleasure, memory, concentration and thinking, energy balance, and gut function are regulated by the endocannabinoid system.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system, CBD supports the system and encourages its efforts to maintain balance. When outside factors threaten the balance of our functions, a healthy endocannabinoid system can keep the body performing at its best.
Whether you’re going to follow a detox diet or not, CBD and its natural wellness properties can help keep your body and its functions in balance.
How to Detox While Using CBD
If you’re already taking daily CBD oil supplements as part of your healthy lifestyle, you’ve likely dialed in on the ideal CBD serving size for you and you can stick with the same routine you’ve been following as you follow your detox diet.
If you’re new to CBD and are going to begin supplementing while you detox, you may want some guidance on figuring out how much CBD to add to your day. Keep in mind that your personal serving of CBD is about what works best for you and your endocannabinoid system. The amount of CBD that works for someone else may not work for you.
When starting any new supplement routine, whether you’re detoxing or not, it is suggested that you start with a lower serving size and gradually work your way up. Once you’ve figured out the CBD levels you’d like to achieve each day, begin with a serving size below that number. Each day, gradually increase your serving size while monitoring how you feel. Once you hit that predetermined serving size, you can decide whether that serving works for you or if you’d like to continue increasing.
