Many years ago the word vegan was considered odd and not many knew exactly what it meant. If you have been vegan for the last 10 yrs, for sure you have seen the advances in the vegan community and the pop up of “vegan friendly” establishments that support not only the vegan diet but the whole concept of being VEGAN.

But what exactly is Vegan and how does CBD oil companies in Canada have worked to make its way in this community? In this post will address vegan concepts, what CBD vegan types are available and the benefits.

In addition to help you have a more natural and clean approach to many of your health concerns we revealed in our top 5 Vegan CBD products list, the best CBD vegan chocolate, great and easy to buy vegan CBD capsules and delicious vegan CBD gummies Canada made.

What exactly is Vegan?

When you think of veganism you relate the term with food, a “vegan diet”. Many goods, such as cereal, vegan milk, and, most recently, vegan CBD protein powder, may have caught your eye. Even supermarkets have assigned an aisle in their installations that is “all vegan”. But being vegan is more than what you eat, it is the values and the actions you take towards a better future for animals, society and the planet.

The term vegan is a philosophy, a lifestyle and actions to move forward to eliminate cruelty and exploitation in all forms towards animals. From clothing, cosmetics to a shift of consciousness, you can begin your journey by paying attention to what you eat.

Now in the cities of Toronto and Vancouver, vegan products like CBD vegan chocolate, gummies, tinctures and ready to buy CBD vegan capsules are more accessible, reaching individuals not only with health concerns but healthier diet needs.

When it comes to your diet, veganism describes the practice of avoiding completely animal derived products, ingredients and so forth.

A good example of coming forward with a vegan concept is if you find yourself visiting or living in Canada opting to buy vegan CBD edibles Canada produced, is a way not only to maintain your vegan diet but also to contribute and support your local farmers and companies.

CBD and vegan have been able to fuse, due to its safe and healthier approach, and the new standards set by the vegan community that addresses the importance of high quality, healthier, no animal derived ingredients and cruelty free products.

Is CBD oil Vegan?

CBD thanks to its plant derived aspect, is considered vegan, even the methods of extractions used to make CBD oil. Is the ingredients that CBD oil is infused with that should be paid attention to.

For example a CBD vegan chocolate should not have any milk or honey or other animal derived components. Dark chocolate, due to it´s high nutritious content, is infused with CBD and is the preferred chocolate bar for a vegan diet.

You can also buy vegan CBD capsules, that are free of gelatin, and made from vegetable cellulose. Vegan CBD protein powder and gummies, that are organic made and gluten free, are also available, ready for you to add to your daily CBD supplement routine.

Vegan CBD edibles in Canada are very popular even in the non vegan population, this due to its nice yummy vegan flavor, usually low in sugar and with a wide selection.

You can buy online products that can be easily found in a vegan section ( check our vegan friendly selection ) with a nice description of ingredients that can help you determine whether it is safe for you, if it's vegan or not, and if it does suit your very personal diet and health goals.

What form of Vegan CBD oil is best?

When selecting a vegan CBD oil product, keep in mind that the ideal option will always be the one that best meets your current health needs.

CBD oil is considered safe and has proven to help ease chronic pain, anxiety disorders, depression, sleep disorders and inflammatory related issues. Additionally it can help people lessen the side effects from cancer treatments and seizures from two forms of epilepsy.

It's through the interaction with the endocannabinoid system that CBD and other cannabinoids like THC, can provide broad benefits. CBD in particular functions as a modulator, can change how receptors on the ECS work, or can influence how enzymes and neurotransmitters interact, in quantities and for how long.

Undoubtedly the potency is another factor to consider when looking up a vegan CBD product, this will greatly impact your daily dosage and the effects desired. For this reason it is recommended to start with a small percentage of CBD oil and gradually as you see fit increase your dosage.

Now when choosing a vegan CBD form you can find quite a variety of them, and again, the best choice will depend on your health goal, and how easy the product adapts to your routine.

For instance edibles like CBD vegan chocolate and gummies, are one of the top choices for many individuals, it will take around 40 min to 2 hrs to have any effect, and is great to have around if you feel like having a sweet treat and just relax.

There are also energy bars mixed with vegan CBD protein powder and other healthy ingredients, giving you the nutrients needed to reach your health goals, while providing relief from pain from sore muscles after a workout.

You can also buy vegan CBD capsules if you find it more reliable for your daily supplement of CBD, easy to take with a smoothie before leaving to work.

In addition, there are also vegan CBD tinctures that are the fastest acting (less than 30 min). You can simply take it sublingually or add it to your desired beverage, in this case it will go through the digestive system, taking around 40 min to 2 hrs to have an effect.

Finally it is also good to consult your physician for further information regarding CBD and your health, this to help you have a more comprehensive decision on the form of CBD oil for your vegan diet and health condition.
