You’ve tried CBD products without any results and you’re ready to give up, Well don’t quit just yet!

First, let’s break it down, what is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol and is the non-psychoactive component found in the Cannabis plant. It also happens to be one that offers many benefits for our overall wellbeing. It’s being researched for many possible medical benefits, and unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), this active compound doesn’t get you “high.”

People are using it to help manage many ailments, including chronic pain, inflammation, anxiousness, lack of sleep and neurological issues.

Your product isn’t from a reputable source

Where did you buy your CBD oil? As its popularity has grown, so have the number of products and companies producing CBD, from department stores to gas stations. Unfortunately, some of these products don’t have high-quality CBD. Some companies take full advantage of that fact by selling low-quality products that aren’t labeled accurately. Always make sure they offer third party testing. Lab testing can reveal exactly how much CBD is in the product.

You need to build it up in your system

Finding the right dosage can be a bit tricky. The precise amount varies for each individual, as every person has a unique biology that results in a different reaction. So how do you figure out what’s right for you? Start low and slow and increase it over time until you find your “sweet spot.”

You are not using it consistently

It’s not an aspirin that you take one-time and expect symptoms to vanish.

When you’re consistent with taking CBD daily, it helps the body to maintain a continuous amount of CBD. This helps to promote a healthy endocannabinoid system (the network of receptors responsible for internally regulating the body and keeping it stable).

You have not given it enough time

Many people take CBD for several weeks to months before seeing results. Also exploring different strengths might be needed. To bind with the cell receptors, CBD might need the help of THC and minor cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN. This is where the difference between a broad-spectrum and a full-spectrum product come to play. Full spectrum contains THC. (these have less than .3% THC). CBD products have to contain less than 0.3% THC to remain legal.

Patience is key, and while it can be frustrating to keep trying with no results, you may end up feeling super grateful that you didn’t give up.
