CBD dabs are the equivalent of CBD waxes. Besides that, they are also often called CBD solids or CBD concentrate. In other words, they are all the same. Just as CBD oil and wax, CBD dabs come in different concentrations. The word dab comes from dabbing, which is colloquial for smoking or vaping hash oil.
How to use CBD dabs
Actually, one of the most popular ways of taking CBD is smoking or vaping a dab or a wax. CBD dabs can be smoked with a special kind of water pipe, colloquially called an oil rig or vaped with a special vaporizer, similar to an e-cigarette, that is suitable for vaping dabs and waxes. You can also dissolve the daily serving of a dab in a hot drink and enjoy for example a hot chocolate milk with a health boost.
The best effect of CBD, be it dabs wax or any other serving form, is achieved when using it regularly and consistently. Consistently meaning that it is recommended to take it daily at the same time of day. The time of day itself, whether you take it before, during, after or in between meals is not important, because CBD does not have any negative side effects on your body and doesn’t get you drowsy or high.
Depending on the concentration of the dab or wax you can calculate your serving size. For example, if the label indicates 240 mg per gram and you want to take 5 mg CBD per serving you calculate your serving as follows:
240:5= 48 servings in your 1 gram dab container. 1 gram is 1000 milligrams, so one serving makes 1000:48= 20,8 milligram of wax for a 5 mg CBD dosage. For general health issues, a daily serving of 2,5 mg to 15 mg daily is recommended. 15 mg can be divided for example into 3 servings of 5 mg per day.
How CBD works
CBD is an organic product derived from industrial hemp, which contains less than 0,3% THC. THC is the cannabinoid in regular cannabis that causes the psychotropic effect. Therefore, when consuming CBD you don’t get the euphoric effect although it gently improves your mood and works mildly on many other of your body’s neuroreceptors.
The balance in health and healing of every human being and almost any animal is controlled by the so-called endocannabinoid system. It is interconnected with our nervous and immune system and regulates them to keep the perfect health balance that gives you this wonderful feeling of wellbeing.
Our body’s endocannabinoid system uses endocannabinoids perform these regulations. Endocannabinoids work on many of our neuroreceptors like mood, feeling, anxiety, healing etc. It is clear when the endocannabinoid system loses its balance, all sorts of health problems may occur.
CBD supports the endocannabinoid system to regain its balance
CBD or cannabidiol is the organic equivalent of the endocannabinoids that our body uses to keep its health-balance. It works in a natural way on the neuroreceptors and automatically restores the balance.
Endocannabinoids are the fuel of our body’s health system. When we are ill or hurt (physically or psychologically) the fuel consumption rises and a lack of fuel occurs with health problems as a result. By taking cannabidiol (CBD) we are refueling, giving our body the opportunity to continue the healing process with increased fuel consumption.
Therefore, depending on your situation and health status, you may require more or less CBD, but in any case, you can see from above’s description, it often is not a one-time cure. The short-term effects, which are often noticeable, are an improvement of your mood, relief of pain and anxiety.
However, this is by far not the limit of the healing properties of CBD. Tests have shown that CBD has healing capabilities of serious medical conditions like:
By regularly refueling you support your body so it can maintain the high fuel consumption necessary for the healing process without running dry on fuel.
Other CBD products
CBD products can be classified in different ways. There are ready-to-consume CBD products like CBD edibles such as CBD gummies. On the other hand, there are products that are mainly for mixing with food and drinks, like CBD isolate.
Young people, of course, like to do things differently, therefore most of them prefer dabbing with CBD wax and CBD dabs. The CBD product that is on its way to becoming a real hype is nothing less than CBD water.
Also, CBD skin care is becoming very popular amongst the big crowd as it is being sold by some big beauty chains. Most of us have the habit of taking better care of our pets health than of our own health. Therefore it is good to know that CBD for pets is available and just as effective as for humans.
