Which CBD product types are best for body maintenance and overall well being?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is one of more than 100+ chemical compounds called cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant. It’s a cannabinoid that offers many body benefits; a natural plant extract, used to deal with a number of ailments, and it’s gaining momentum in the health and wellness worlds by the day.
CBD is an appealing option for those who are looking for pain relief and ways to keep the body in ship shape condition, without having to suffer side effects related to the use of a number of pharmaceutical solutions. It’s a great support for those people dealing with the daily demands of an active lifestyle. So, how does it work?
How does the human body interact with CBD?
CBD interacts with the human body through what is called the Endocannabinoid System or ECS. The ECS is something that all of us have. In fact, not just humans have an ECS. Other mammals have it too, which is why lots of pet owners are also turning to CBD products for the overall wellbeing and body balance of their beloved pets.
CBD works by activating the ECS through a channel of receptors that exist within our central and peripheral nervous systems, located in our brain, spinal cord, organs, and immune system. But, what does it mean?
Simply put, it means that all cannabinoids produce effects in the body by interacting with cannabinoid receptors, which form part of the endocannabinoid system. It means that our bodies were literally built to receive and interact with CBD.
The Endocannabinoid System and Receptors
There are two types of receptors in our ECS that we’re interested in highlighting today. The first are known as CB1 receptors, present throughout the body, but in particular in the brain. They’re the receptors that coordinate movement, pain, emotion, mood, thinking, appetite, memory, and other functions.
CB2 receptors, on the other hand, are more commonly found in the immune system. They’re the receptors that have direct influence over inflammation and pain. While other cannabinoids attach themselves to our receptors, CBD works slightly differently in that it interacts with and stimulates the receptors, so that the body can produce its own form of cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids.
CBD, like so many of the other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, acts as a primer for nerve endings, allowing our brains to communicate more effectively with our bodies. The reason why so many people are turning to CBD and CBD products is to get their bodies back to a normal, healthy equilibrium, called “homeostasis.”
If we can achieve this equilibrium, we can achieve long term body maintenance and overall wellbeing. Regular use of CBD helps us to achieve this goal.
What are CBD softgels and why are they good for body maintenance?
CBD is known to support the mind and body in many wonderful ways. Among the many benefits, we find that CBD generates a sense of calm and relaxation, supports healthy sleep cycles, and helps achieve faster recovery from exercise-induced inflammation.
Simply put, CBD offers many health benefits and, as interest grows, so does the variety of products. For example, easy-to-take products, like CBD softgels, are becoming more popular and are an effective option for many people. They offer a simple way to supplement your wellness plan with CBD, especially if you don’t enjoy the taste of CBD oil tinctures or want an on-the-go option.
CBD softgels can help you to get CBD into your body with ease, through oral administration. CBD softgels are taken just like any other food supplement or vitamin, and they are usually made from two different types of CBD oil: broad-spectrum CBD, and full-spectrum CBD.
Isolate is processed to leave just pure CBD and no other plant compounds, while broad-spectrum CBD extracts contain some additional plant parts but are still THC-free.
Full-spectrum CBD is made retaining the entire range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant compounds that naturally exist in the hemp plant. Broad spectrum CBD is made in the same way, but with THC completely removed. At GetEvoke, our CBD softgels are made from broad spectrum CBD and we’ll be more than happy to explain why if you have any questions. Just reach out to us via social media 🙂
How do we pick the best CBD gel capsules or softgels?
Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t regulate CBD products. This means it can be difficult to know what various CBD products contain. When considering CBD products, we recommend choosing products that:
- are made by a company that provides proof of third-party testing.
- are made using U.S.-grown hemp.
- don’t contain more than 0.3% THC, as proven by its certificate of analysis (COA)
- have passed tests for pesticides, heavy metals, and molds, according to the COA
- are certified as organic.
Why are our CBD softgels so good at improving your overall wellbeing?

Our CBD softgels are made from hemp grown on farms in the US that adhere to strict growing standards. The hemp used is organic and free from chemical growth enhancers that other growers might use during the growing process.

How to Best Combine Our CBD Products
Combining different CBD products can be beneficial because certain delivery methods affect our bodies in unique ways. Using a range of CBD product types and consumption methods allows the user to introduce more CBD benefits and plant goodness into his or her system and helps to better integrate CBD into all kinds of active lifestyles.
Our CBD tinctures have been specially formulated to support and enhance your active lifestyle using differing levels of CBD and the natural flavors of mint, lemon, and cinnamon.
Our LEVEL500 increases focus and gives you that injection of calm, whenever and wherever you need it most. Our LEVEL1000 speeds up and improves the recovery of tired muscles post-exercise. Our LEVEL1500 improves the quality of your sleep.
Use our LEVEL500 in the middle of your favorite activity, like a yoga class, to find the moment of calm you need to get the most out of your experience. Use our LEVEL1000 post-exercise, so that you can recover faster and get back on the exercise train the following day without suffering from sore muscles. Use our LEVEL1500 every day, 20 minutes before bed, to enjoy the deep rejuvenating sleep you deserve.
Use all three CBD tinctures in the ways explained above, at the same time, to make the most out of your CBD experience and to really benefit from the effects of a CBD exercise program built to generate long-lasting, positive, body improvements.
