Reasons CBD May Not Be Working for You
- by Lourdes Staff
You've been hearing a lot of buzz about CBD, the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp, and you're probably wondering how you can include it in your daily routine. If you're not getting the results you'd hoped for, don't give up on this amazing supplement just yet. There are several reasons why CBD might not be working for you—and fortunately, most are very simple to fix! In this blog post, we'll cover everything from the type of CBD to use to how often; everything from dosage amount (and whether or not more is better) to choosing a reputable company; and all sorts of other little tips that could make all the difference between success and failure with cannabidiol oil supplements.
Are you using the wrong type of CBD?
There are many different types of CBD, but not all of them will work for you. It depends on what you want to achieve and how your body reacts to it.
CBD comes in many different types; vapes, edibles, tincture and salve or creams. Each of these works differently for different people. Each type is metabolized by the body at different speed and degrees. Depending on what you may be trying to accomplish and how your body reacts to the CBD you may find one type is more effective for you than others. Starting with a more popular product specific to a need you are trying to remedy may be a good place to start.
Are you using the wrong dose?
The right dosage is different for each person, and it depends on three main factors: the type of CBD you're using, your reason for using CBD, and how sensitive your body is to cannabinoids.
The proper dose will also depend on the concentration of CBD in a particular product. High potency CBD will allow you to have more efficacy, cost effectiveness and scalability. The amount of CBD in mg in a product will dictate how much needs to be taken along with your body reaction to the cannabinoids as their effects will differ substantially. There is also differences in their chemical composition depending on whether the CBD products are made with full spectrum, broad spectrum or CBD isolate.
If you've been using a low dose of any form of CBD without noticing any result whatsoever, it might be to consider increasing your intake levels.
Are you using CBD daily?
CBD is a supplement, not a cure. It takes time to build up CBD, so don't assume that if you're not feeling the effects of CBD after your first dose, it's not going to work. As CBD is reacted to differently by each individual, some will feel its effectiveness right away while others may need a longer time frame before experiencing the effects of CBD.
Consistency is key to using CBD. Taking a daily dose at the same time of day is one of the best ways to incorporate a CBD routine. It takes some individuals up to two weeks of daily use before they feel any of the effects of CBD. Also, once the time has passed and one still does not believe CBD is working, the amount or type of CBD may need to be changed.
Are you purchasing from the wrong company?
The most important thing you can do to ensure your CBD is working for you is to buy from a reputable company with 3rd party lab-testing and objective user feedback. If you have any doubts about the legitimacy of the company selling your CBD, don’t hesitate to do some research or reach out directly through their website or social media channels. Make sure they have an active website with clear contact information.
If you feel CBD is not working for you, it may be contributed to taking the wrong type, using the wrong dose, may not be using it consistently or you may have purchased a less reputable company. It’s important to remember that everyone has different needs and responds differently to CBD product options. If one thing doesn’t work, try something new and keep in mind, everything is not for everyone.
