Is CBD oil not working for you? Here are three possible reasons why, and what to do about it.
As always, before treating a medical condition (such as cancer or Chron’s disease), please first speak to your doctor to determine whether CBD is the right option for you, especially if you’re taking other medications.
1. Build Up Your Endocannabinoid System
Finding the right dosage of CBD oil based products can be a tricky endeavour. The appropriate amount varies for each individual, as every person’s biology is unique reacts differently. Experts recommend starting with a low dose — 20 to 40 milligrams per day, according to Healthline’s Medical Network (HMN) — and slowly increasing your dosage over time until you find what works for you.
Some find that taking a daily dose can help sustain a level of CBD in your body, which might stimulate your endocannabinoid system to make it react more to CBD.
Some people use a micro-dosing technique to find their personal dosage and adjust it as needed over time.
2. CBD Oil Not Working? Give It More Time!
One of the major factors to blame for CBD oil not working for some people is time. Many people take CBD for several weeks or even several months before they see a difference.
Exploring the effects of CBD isn’t as simple as taking a couple of Aspirin and calling it a day. It actually requires a certain level of commitment with time and thought given to your process of uncovering the long-term effects of CBD oil.
Patience is the key, and while it can be frustrating to continue trying without any obvious results, over a longer period of time you may feel grateful that you didn’t give up.
3. Experiment With Different Delivery Systems
If you’ve been trying one delivery system (such as vapes or edibles) with no luck, it’s possible that a different form would work better for you. Options for choice range from tinctures and oils, topical creams, vape oils, capsules or edible treats like gummies and chocolate.
One factor to consider is bioavailability, which essentially refers to how much of the CBD actually gets into your bloodstream.
For example, if you eat CBD gummies, they have to go through your digestive tract before you can absorb them, and the amount that ends up in your system may be relatively low.
On the other hand, if you take a tincture sublingually — which means under the tongue — you’re absorbing it directly into your bloodstream. So you could get quicker, more noticeable results than you would from waiting for your digestive system to process it.
