Maybe you've been hearing a lot about CBD lately. But what is it? What can it do for you? And why is CBD from CBDfx so outstanding?
To start with, cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the substances that can be extracted from the cannabis plant. People inhale CBD vapor for a variety of reasons. Many people anecdotally report that CBD reduces anxiety and eases pain. According to some studies, it may improve focus. In general, users report that CBD use simply makes you feel more cheerful and more relaxed.
CBD vaping is a relatively new way to take in this compound. The vaping system, a wonder of modern technology, uses an electronic device to produce a harmless vapor that's much smoother than smoke.
In addition, with CBD vaping, you have a choice of various flavors besides the natural taste of the plant. Indeed, thousands of flavored liquids are now available — the choices are endless! Once you've found a taste and aroma that you enjoy, you'll appreciate the CBD experience even more.
CBD vaping offers a wide range of potential medical benefits, according to modern research. It may reduce inflammation, and it can lessen the effects of skin problems like acne. Many users report that it can reduce nausea and limit vomiting as well. In higher dosages, CBD can possibly even be used to treat epilepsy and severe mental disorders such as schizophrenia.
Based on exciting new research, it appears that CBD may play a role in the future treatment of several different health conditions. That's excellent news, and it explains why so many people are getting ahead of the trend and starting to use CBD now while also keeping an eye on the latest scientific developments.
However, with this type of vaping, there are a couple of basic safety tips to keep in mind. First, you should find an electronic device that isn't prone to overheating. And, second, you should only use CBD with a nontoxic flavoring liquid. Don't worry: if you're sourcing your CBD and vaping equipment from a reputable company, this should be no problem.
CBD Side Effects vs. Pharmaceutical Side Effects
In some cases, CBD users will experience such mild side effects as tiredness, moodiness and nausea. However, when present, those side effects tend to be very moderate at worst. And many people have no problem whatsoever tolerating this substance.
By contrast, pharmaceutical side effects can sometimes be acute. They include dizziness, headaches and muscle pains, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, rashes, diarrhea, dehydration, blurry vision, constipation and weight gain.
In particular, the side effects of epileptic drugs can be severe. Depression, confusion and memory loss, weight loss, fatigue, vertigo, tremors, slurred speech, angry outbursts and hair loss are among them. CBD offers a huge beacon of hope to people who have had a difficult time tolerating their existing epilepsy treatment.
What's more, consider these facts about the safety of CBD:
- It's classified as nontoxic.
- It's not intoxicating.
- It doesn't raise a person's blood pressure or heart rate.
- It doesn't lead to psychological problems.
- You almost certainly won't get addicted to CBD, even if you were to use it on a regular basis and in high doses.
- It appears that people are unable to overdose on CBD.
Of course, medical experts will continue to investigate CBD. But, so far, the results of formal studies have been extremely promising. Again and again, researchers have confirmed this substance's excellent potential and minimal side effects.

At CBDfx, our top-notch CBD vape pens come with enticing flavors, including strawberry lemonade and fresh mint. And every aspect of our CBD is organic; there's no artificial flavoring here.
These pens are simple to operate. You don't even have to charge them. Instead, as soon as you buy one, you can pull it out of its packaging and start using it on the spot. Plus, you can carry it with you wherever you go, and no one will realize that you have this item with you.
Then, after you've enjoyed all of the CBD that it contains, you can just throw this vape pen away and move on to the next one.
Our medium-strength pens contain 50 mg of CBD, and they supply users with a strong concentration of terpenes as well. Terpenes are hydrocarbons that come from certain kinds of plants, including citrus plants. And they offer health benefits of their own. To name just a few, they may potentially fight tumors, ease inflammation, and even relieve pain. They may help to prevent seizures, too.
On top of that, when you take in CBD and terpenes at the same time, those two compounds likely magnify each other's benefits. Together, they're more than the sum of their parts. That's a phenomenon known as the "entourage effect," a hot subject of current research.
Last but not least, our CBD comes to us via the ultra-clean CO2 extraction method. This technique uses liquefied carbon dioxide to dissolve plant matter. When CBD is sourced in this way, the resulting product is especially pure.
In sum, as long as it comes from a trustworthy source, CBD is a safe and convenient product to use. And CBDfx is exactly the trustworthy source you've been looking for. CBDfx even makes laboratory batch reports publicly available on their website, so you can see exactly what's inside the product you're taking.
Indeed, it's fun to vape CBD alone or with friends. With or without flavoring, its taste is delightful!
Above all, CBD holds great promise for people's physical and psychological well-being, in the short term and over the long haul. If this sounds good to you, CBD vaping could become a key component of a healthy and happy lifestyle.

Shower shoes? Check. Extra-long sheets? Yep. Energy efficiency checklist? No worries — we've got you covered there. If you're one of the nation's 12.1 million full-time undergraduate college students, you no doubt have a lot to keep in mind as you head off to school. If you're reading this, climate change is probably one of them, and with one-third of students choosing to live on campus, dorm life can have a big impact on the health of our planet. In fact, the annual energy use of one typical dormitory room can generate as much greenhouse gas pollution as the tailpipe emissions of a car driven more than 156,000 miles.

Kokia drynarioides is a small but significant flowering tree endemic to Hawaii's dry forests. Native Hawaiians used its large, scarlet flowers to make lei. Its sap was used as dye for ropes and nets. Its bark was used medicinally to treat thrush.
States that invest heavily in renewable energy will generate billions of dollars in health benefits in the next decade instead of spending billions to take care of people getting sick from air pollution caused by burning fossil fuels, according to a new study from MIT and reported on by The Verge.
Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could be gearing up for an eruption after a pond of water was discovered inside its summit crater for the first time in recorded history, according to the AP.

From where I stand inside the South Dakota cornfield I was visiting with entomologist and former USDA scientist Jonathan Lundgren, all the human-inflicted traumas to Earth seem far away. It isn't just that the corn is as high as an elephant's eye — are people singing that song again? — but that the field burgeons and buzzes and chirps with all sorts of other life, too.
Humanity faced its hottest month in at least 140 years in July, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said on Thursday. The finding confirms similar analysis provided by its EU counterparts.

Indonesia's president has made permanent a temporary moratorium on forest-clearing permits for plantations and logging.
It's a policy the government says has proven effective in curtailing deforestation, but whose apparent gains have been criticized by environmental activists as mere "propaganda."
