CBD was legalized with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, and since then has become quite popular. CBD is derived from the extract of the hemp plant and works directly with the bodies Endocannabinoid System. Many people are using these natural dietary supplements for such things as chronic pain relief, improve sleep disorders, reduce stress and anxiety disorders and overall general health, and having great results. If you have tried CBD and are not receiving the health benefits you expected, there could be several reasons for the lack of success.
1. The CBD Source
Unfortunately, there are many low-quality CBD products on the market, and it can be hard to distinguish them from the best CBD oils. To start, do not choose CBD products from a company that emails you with medical claims, and offers of free product, these are most often scams. Stay away from Amazon. which is prohibited from selling CBD products, but certain brands will sell hemp seed oil marketed to look like real pure CBD. Always look at the product label as it should list the mg of CBD in the nutritional panel. Another way to identify high quality products is to look for lab test results, or certificates of quality assurance, which will show the product has been tested for potency and purity. You can also check out CBD reviews, but take these with a grain of salt, as many online stores and different brands can manipulate their reviews, or even pay for fake reviews. If you use a low quality product, you most likely will not receive the beneficial effects of CBD.
2. The CBD Delivery Method
There are different delivery methods for using CBD and the best way for potential benefits will depend on the issue you are seeking to improve. CBD tinctures, or the drops of CBD oil are designed to be placed under the tongue, and held for at least a minute to ensure maximum absorption. If CBD oil is mixed in with a food or beverage it will instead go through the digestive system, and not be as effective.
CBD topical creams are designed to be massaged into an area of joint pain or muscle ache, and will do little to help relieve stress or anxiety. CBD Gummies, which are very popular, are meant to be digested, but taking them on a full stomach may lower the positive effects and absorption. CBD users should always read the directions of a particular product prior to use. If you are unsure of which product to use, or how to use it, reach out to the customer care team of CBD company, which should be able to make helpful recommendations.
3. Amount of CBD Dosage
Most people do not take too much CBD, but in fact start with such a low dose that they feel no difference in their health conditions. It is advisable to start with a smaller daily dose, but don’t be afraid to slowly try higher doses until you find the right amount “sweet spot” of CBD effectiveness. Be sure to review how much CBD is in the oil or capsule you are taking. CBD comes in many different strengths and average an effective dose is usually between 25mg to 50mg daily.
4. Time Period
We live in a fast moving world, and expect immediate results, but the effects of CBD may take some time to build up in your system before they are felt. Give yourself a full month to experience the benefits of CBD. Keeping a daily journal or log may help identify what is working and whats not. Try taking CBD at different times of the day, or with and without food to see how you feel. Being consistent and taking CBD daily will increase your odds of having results.
5. Realistic Expectations
While more clinical trials and studies need to be performed to really understand how and exactly why CBD works, it is important to also have realistic expectations for the results. CBD will NOT cure Cancer or Alzheimer’s disease, or make you loose wight. If you have been taking a prescription drug for pain or anxiety, CBD will not replace the effects. CBD should be looked at as a natural remedy that may help ease the symptoms of many common day health ailments.
6. Genetic Make Up
Some people due to their biochemistry make up just don’t experience any benefits of CBD, even at high doses. This could be due to metabolism, BMI, and their endocannabinoid system. If you have tried various CBD brands, at different strengths and had no results, it could be that CBD is just not for you.
