CBD should be used regularly.
I tried CBD products, but it didn't work for me.
Why is it not working for me?
Was it all an exciting scam?
Such questions might sound familiar. You might have tried CBD products without any results. It is true you might not be the only one. However, it doesn't necessarily mean that the whole industry is a scam.
CBD (cannabidiol ) is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis or Sativa plants. It has been studied and researched for many medical benefits. CBD can't get you high, unlike the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound.
Many users have used CBD to manage several ailments, including; chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia and seizures.
You might have heard about some success stories. Several people have used CBD to manage chronic conditions. The results were terrific. It is working for them.
There are also some legitimate reasons why CBD might not be working for you.
Before you consider quitting, consider the following;
You might need to give it more time.
You might have tried CBD for the first time and wondered if you had wasted your money over some over-hyped trend. You put some drops of an oil tincture under the tongue, expect near-instant relief from chronic pain, and unfortunately got …. Nothing!!!
Such an experience isn't unusual at all because rapid or immediate results aren't all that common.
In most cases, CBD takes several weeks or even up to months before the average person sees notable effects.
Exploring the effects of CBD is not as easy as taking a couple of painkillers and calling it a day. It requires a certain level of commitment to put time and thought into your process of uncovering the long term effects.
If you don't experience any result after a while (after a few months), it will be best to try a different brand.
Taking CBD is not just a one night stand. You can't just hit-it-and-quit-it. It requires patience, which can be frustrating at times; keep trying, no results may be discouraging, but you might end up feeling super grateful that you didn't give up in the long run.
You need to build it up in your system.
Getting the correct dosage of CBD can be a very challenging endeavor. The right amount varies for each person, as every individual has a unique biology that results in a different reaction.
"So how do I figure out what is suitable for my body?"
Our CBD Consultants always suggest to start with a low dose and then steadily increase it over time until you find your sweet spot.
Some use the micro-dosing technique to find their dosage and adjust it as needed over some time.
Kindly use a journal to log your results. It helps keep track of how much you have taken, how you feel before dosing and at several time intervals afterwards, and any notable changes in signs and symptoms.
Over time this information can help paint a picture of how CBD affects you.
Getting CBD to work takes time, patience and research.
There is a minimal well-researched or regulated CBD treatment option available unlike many other treatment options like prescription medication. Scientists in the industry are still trying to narrow down the best practices for taking CBD.
However, for sure, it is never that simple as taking some standard dosage and getting immediate results. It takes sacrifice, time, patience and most importantly, ongoing research to find the right brand, dosage and even delivery method for you.
This also implies that the process can also get pricey - as you might have to buy products several times over several months before you find what works best for you. However, you are worth every dollar, you only have one life take care of it!
