From 2019-2020, the number of people using fitness trackers and health apps increased nearly 30%.1 Researchers estimate that at least a third of us have tried at least one, and 1 out of every 5 rely on these user-friendly tools to help manage, and possibly reshape, their lives.2 If you appreciate some of the many benefits of using a mobile app to achieve your fitness goals, evaluate sleep quality, or manage a chronic health condition, we’ve got exciting news, a partnership you’re sure to find intriguing.
CBDistillery™ is now partnered with a tracking app specifically designed for the unique needs of cannabis and CBD users, Releaf. This free download could be just the tool you need to help track your CBD usage, identify which products work best for you, and connect with others who share your enthusiasm for hemp-derived products. Plus, every time you record a CBD serving size, reason for use, and details about your experience, you’ll be contributing important data that helps advance cannabinoid research.3
Why We Partnered with Releaf App™?
Releaf is the highest-ranking app for individuals to track, learn from, and improve their use of cannabis and CBD. Numerous product reviews and user testimonials confirm the app is user-friendly, and user accounts can be managed from multiple devices. The app helps CBD users save time and money by quickly dialing in on the product types and serving sizes that work best for their needs while helping brands address customer needs more effectively. Reports show that the more frequently app users record product usage and results, the happier they are with their overall experience.
Using the Releaf App™ also gives our customers a remarkable opportunity. When you enter your CBD usage information and submit your results, you’re contributing to the largest crowdsourced database providing real-world cannabinoid insight to a global network of university researchers. Releaf founders are also committed to investigative journalism, consumer advocacy, and helping growers, processors, and retailers improve their products and services.
What Are the Benefits of the Releaf App™ for CBD Users?
The anonymous data collected from CBD users helps researchers and advocacy groups determine the impact of cannabinoids on specific health and wellness concerns. While this information will likely be of considerable benefit to numerous CBD users in the future, there are also many other reasons to consider downloading the app and creating an account, benefits that could significantly enhance your CBD experience.
Identifying Your Ideal Serving Sizes
On the label of nearly every hemp-derived CBD product, you’ll typically find a suggested serving size. That recommendation represents an amount of CBD shown to work well for most people. But everyone is different. A serving size of CBD that works well for someone else could be significantly more or considerably less than the amount of CBD ideal for you. While using more CBD than you need isn’t harmful, it can raise the cost of daily use significantly.
That’s why first-time CBD users are typically advised to start with a small amount of CBD and increase their serving size gradually. Releaf App™ tracks your reasons for using CBD with each session, records how much you’re using at a time, and documents how you feel as you log in. You’ll also be able to use the icons on the dashboard to track your progress and the notepad to record any comments you may have about your experience. Your personal commentary will not be shared.
Monitoring the Impact of Multiple Products
Many CBD users rely on multiple products throughout the day. It’s not unusual for a CBD enthusiast to use a tincture, softgel, or gummy in the morning for overall health and wellness, a topical as needed for post-activity discomfort, or a sleep-specific product before turning in for the night. With Releaf, tracking your usage of multiple CBDistillery™ products is much easier than you might expect.
When you log in to the app, you’ll be asked to specify what type of cannabis you use. When you select that you purchased your product from a “cbd website”, you’ll see the CBDistillery™ logo on the next screen. When you get to the product screen, click on the search bar. As you begin to type, you’ll see images and product specifications in the drop-down list. The very next screen allows you to record your serving size, and a slider bar monitors incremental changes. When you end your session, you’ll be asked to rate your overall experience.
Recording Helpful Data for Multiple Concerns
Based on the feedback of nearly 2000 CBD users, most people are using our hemp-derived products for better sleep, to feel more relaxed, and for pain, stiffness, and inflammation after physical activity. Of those using our hemp-derived products, 9 out of 10 also report that CBD helps calm their mind, and 88% tell us that CBD helps with mild or temporary anxiety. Although those survey results suggest numerous potential benefits, many people report using CBD for more than one issue on that list.
While using Releaf App™, you have the opportunity to evaluate how each product or serving size affects each of up to four symptoms you select at the beginning of your session. Over time, you could easily find that you require more or less CBD for one issue (or product type) than another and can even track specific concerns in different areas of your body. For example, if you’re dealing with post-workout stiffness and discomfort, you can indicate how that discomfort affects your arm’s, legs, or back, keep track of how your current serving size affects each area, and adjust your usage accordingly.
How Does Releaf App™ Utilize the Information Shared by CBD Users?
As Releaf App™ helps you determine which products and serving sizes work best for you, researchers gain valuable information. The more people who contribute, the more research opportunities move forward. Some of the rewards of the combined efforts of Releaf users and university researchers have been Updated in Frontiers, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, Journal of Cannabis Research, Integrative Journal of Medicine, Scientific Reports, Medicines, and Science Direct.
The data you share will never contain personal information, your email address, or contact information. Although an email account is required to log in and create a profile, providing additional information is not necessary. The Releaf team respects your privacy. While prompts will request your location, experience level, birth year, and gender, clicking “next” will allow you to advance to the next screen. You can make revisions to your account at any time.
Could You Benefit from Our Partnership with Releaf App™?
A 2019 Gallup poll confirmed that 82 percent of people using health and wellness apps find them helpful.4 While we believe our partnership with Releaf App™ creates exciting opportunities for CBD users, the only way to know how you might personally benefit from documenting your experience is to try it. As you track, learn, discover, and share, you’ll be contributing to the largest crowdsourced database focused on cannabinoid use.
