Written by Shared Content

If you’re someone in the U.S. who has never tried CBD, there’s probably never been a better time to get started.

The compound, for those who are not acquainted with it, is part of the cannabis plant and has been said to provide pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects, as well as help in managing symptoms of depression and anxiety.

One of the reasons why CBD has grown so popular is because it doesn’t produce psychoactive effects, making it the perfect product to reach a wide variety of people.

There’s a lot we don’t know about CBD, but it’s understood that the compound interacts with our endocannabinoid system and accumulates over time. Some think the longer CBD is used, the more effective the compound reacts with a person’s body.

Now that we’re all stressed out with life, learning to use CBD might be a nice quarantine project that might help to cope with stress and anxiety.

Here are five CBD products that newbies can try, whether investing in CBD for the long haul, or simply looking for some temporary fun.

This is awesome, but also painful, which is why different CBD balms might provide plenty of relief. Topical CBD can help with inflammation and pain management, providing effective results.
