AK Wellness & Supplements: Focusing on your health through use of CBD

    by Tianna G. Hansen

    It is a common misconception that the increasing use of CBD (Cannabidiol) in all its forms – in oils, lotions, and more – is the same as THC, found in marijuana.

    CBD does not get you high, it gets you healthy.

    AK Wellness & Supplements, a new store just opened in Southampton, is working to not only expand the use of CBD, but to increase the education of all the benefits it has on a person’s health.

    CBD is used as a nutritional supplement, derived from the hemp plant.

    It is not just another nutritional supplement, however – the use of CBD has physiological effects on the human body.

    There are numerous medical benefits provided by the use of CBD, including relief for chronic pain (muscle, arthritis), helping reduce stress/anxiety, inflammation, and many other conditions.

    AK Wellness offers a large variety of products – most notable is their water soluble CBD drops that can be added to water and are offered in a variety of flavors.

    Water Soluble CBD tinctures

    When this product is dissolved in water, it enters the system quickly and avoids your body consuming any unnecessary additives that some other CBD oils can have.

    This product can help manage pain and relieve anxiety, and is a great alternative medicine for those seeking quick relief.

    Suggested use is 0.5mL twice daily, stirred into 8oz of water or taken as a sublingual tincture (drops under your tongue).

    Use as a daily dietary supplement. Along with their water soluble, they also offer VG products which you can vaporize in a pen.

    There are pet tinctures as well, used to help calm your pets – just place in their water and relieve their stress or anxiety.

    CBD Gummies

    A colorful and tasty way to get your CBD on! Each piece of fruit flavor adult Gummie Candy is infused with 10mg of CBD.

    That means one container of gummies from AK Wellness (30 gummies) offers a total of 300mg of infused CBD.

    As a dietary supplement, it’s a delightful way to consume terpene rich, high-quality CBD Hemp Oil.

    Although these gummies look and taste like candy, each is infused with the highest quality, full spectrum Cannabidiol Hemp Oil available.

    Another advantage of CBD in this form is that each piece is a measured dose and easy to eat. Go ahead and treat yourself with health.

    CBD Cream

    AK Wellness also offers CBD creams – an extra strength for pain relief, and for hydration. The pain relief cream is topical, full spectrum CBD Hemp Oil that soothes sore muscles.

    Their extra strength anti-inflammatory cream is 100% organic and terpene rich.

    CBD AK uses the highest quality hemp oil available containing high amounts of CBD.

    Use a drop or two of this extra strength ointment. A small amount spreads like crazy.

    Pat onto affected area and see a difference in a matter of days. Nature’s secret is at your fingertips.

    Recommended best usage is taking a hot shower before applying to your skin, or laying a hot towel over the area you wish to rub the cream on in order to open your pores and get the best effect.

    AK also offers anti-aging cream with apple stem cells, a daily skin renewal cream, overnight rejuvenation cream, and more!

    Stop in to check out all they have to offer.

    CBD Bath Bombs

    There are CBD bath bombs for an extra relaxation after a long hard day.

    Offered with a pain reliever concentration which includes CBD and Epsom salt with coconut oil, or yograss for a nice soak that will relieve your anxiety and stress.

    Hemp/CBD Flowers

    Use these as an herbal tea for a nice brew of instant relaxation.

    Through extensive research, CBD has been considered as a treatment for a wide range of illness, including (but not limited to): autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis); neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury); metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity); neuropsychiatric illness (autism, ADHD, PTSD, alcoholism); gut disorders (colitis, Crohn’s); cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia); and skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis).
