To understand CBD, we must first understand the Endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid system is your body’s network of neurotransmitters and receptors that regulate many of your essential processes including:
In a perfect world, your body would make all the endocannabinoids that it would need. However stress on your body, like injury, illness or even genetic flaws, can cause your body to not produce enough endocannabinoids. Scientist have even discovered that many health conditions may be caused by these endocannabinoid deficiencies.
There is so much information floating around on the internet about studies, personal testimonials and of course the millions of medical claims that it can be hard to discern which is fact and which is fiction. Everyone’s experience with CBD is different, and you many have found yourself in a situation where you are not noticing any benefits. There are a few different reasons why this may be.
When first taking CBD it is important to start small and start slow, however many people are not taking enough that would even be noticeable. Unfortunately, legally CBD companies are restricted from giving any specific dosing recommendations due to FDA regulations.
While we cannot recommend a certain amount that you should be taking, it is important to know that everyone’s body composition is different. The phrase slow and steady is good advice. However if you are not feeling the effects of, you can increase your amount; waiting 30-45 minutes to feel something before choosing to once again increase your amount.
No matter your reasoning on taking CBD, be sure to remember that ultimately there is no specific amount that you need to take. CBD is not a ‘one size fits all.’ Be patient in taking the time to find your ‘sweet spot.’ It is nearly impossible to overdose on CBD. Just like water, dark chocolate, and kale, it has an unusually low level of toxicity. In the last 6,000 years, CBD hasn’t killed anyone via overdose, which is particularly impressive when you compare it to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, Advil and Tylenol, which can wreak havoc on your gut lining, liver and kidneys.
Cannabinoids like fat, and when you have a higher body fat percentage it can create an interference when your body is trying to absorb CBD into the bloodstream. When you ingest CBD, you will need to compensate for your body fat levels. The higher your body fat percentage, the less CBD enters your bloodstream and the less you will be able to feel the effects. So when you are taking your personalized dose, be sure to take into account your body fat levels.
Patience is a virtue when talking about CBD. Because no two bodies are alike, the results can vary person to person. Not everyone is taking CBD for the same reasons, so this could also affect how long it takes. It is important to remember that CBD is NOT a medication, so there are no set guidelines. CBD is a dietary supplement. Think of it like taking your vitamins; you won’t be able to feel the long term effects unless you continue to take your vitamins everyday. While some users have reported feeling almost immediate relief and or benefits, there are some who do not start to notice a change until after taking CBD for several weeks. If you are the type that needs a longer ‘incubation’ time, make sure you are taking an appropriate amount and waiting! Good things come to those who wait!
Not all CBD is created equally. When it comes to full spectrum versus regular CBD, many people may be unclear exactly what the difference is. When you are purchasing CBD products, you have two options: full spectrum CBD or isolate (regular) CBD. There are some key differences between the two that you will want to know.
Full spectrum CBD, as hemp oil, contains every cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant. Nothing is left out, and these different cannabinoids have various potential benefits that can address a wide variety of ailments, both on their own and in unison with one another, and with CBD.
CBD isolate is just what it sounds like; this means it has been isolated or removed from all other cannabinoids. The CBD is separated by cooling the extracted oil until it forms into crystals. These crystals are then processed and turned into a pure powder form. This powder is pure CBD with no other cannabinoids.
In recent years CBD has flooded the market, there are so many companies out there selling ‘CBD’. Unfortunately not all of these retailers are selling high quality CBD – many of these companies are have scammed people with low quality CBD. It is so important to research different brands in order to find a reputable company to purchase from.
