What is CBD?
CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, is one of the natural chemicals found in cannabis.
Cannabidiol doesn’t contain any chemicals that give you a “high” – instead, CBD is known for its calming, relaxing properties. While cannabis still has limited legality throughout the world, CBD oil tends to be more widely accepted.
CBD is found in many forms including capsules, oil tinctures, edibles, topical salves, and flower or ‘bud’.
CBD for Migraine: The Basics
All CBD products are derived from CBD flower– which means you can create your own infused edible concoctions with CBD flower!
It should be noted that some forms of CBD are better absorbed than others with sublingual CBD having the highest bioavailability. This migraine friendly moscow mule features a CBD oil tincture that will not solidify in cold drinks. While edible forms of CBD have about a 6% absorption rate, this is a great way to experiment with using CBD if you are new to trying it, or if you are looking to become more creative as a bartender!
Note: Some CBD products may solidify in drinks depending on the types of oils they are made of.
Disclaimer – please check with your doctor and be familiar with the laws in your area before using CBD products.
