Your first 30 days on CBD is an important time to better understand your body and how it responds. Below we answer many of the most common beginners’ questions about CBD.
When you’re new to CBD, the first thing to know is that the effects take a few days to become noticeable. That means when you begin taking CBD every day, it’s good to be mindful of how your body responds to your daily CBD dosage. To discover its full effects, we recommend trying it for a full 30 days.
The bottom line is that when you’re choosing a CBD product, you should consider the type of results you’re trying to achieve and adjust your dosage accordingly. This may also include testing different consumption methods or a different application style. It can also depend on your body mass, and if you’re taking any prescription medications. 5
Factor 5: Consistency
While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it does mean that people with more fat cells in their body will most likely need more time to adjust. It’s not all bad news, though: the higher your body mass, the longer it takes for CBD to work. 11
Regardless of what you’re feeling, the positive results come slowly. The key to getting the most benefits out of your CBD is consistency! A consistent, daily dose will eventually restore balance your ECS; and you’ll be glad you stuck with it.
For example, if you take a high dose of CBD to Support a healthy Sleep Cycle, you’ll probably feel sleepy in about 15-30 minutes. In contrast, if you take a lower serving for general wellness or everyday aches or pains, it could take a few days of dosing to notice significant results. 4
While there’s no way to quantify how much of an imbalance you’re experiencing; you can probably gauge this yourself by assessing the severity of your symptoms.
So, be patient and experiment while listening to your body, and you are likely to get the benefits you are looking for.
The period of time it took for the CBD to take effect might vary as well. Just as people react differently to medications, we all react differently to CBD as well.
If a person has been taking CBD for an extended period of time and not getting the results they are looking for, chances are they are not taking a high enough dose. The general recommendation for dosing, is to start low (5mg per day) and go slow – gradually working up the dose every five to seven days.
Tips for making sure you get the most out of your CBD experience:
It’s important to experiment to find out the right dosage needed, which is also why it’s important to be patient and give it time – sometimes it can take us long as 30 days for CBD to build up in the system and deliver the life changing results you are looking for.
It’s very important to remember, that what dose works for one person might not work for the next.
Typically, when taken sublingually, CBD enters the system in about 20 minutes. It may take up to two hours if taken via an edible or capsule. The effects of CBD taken sublingually usually lasts a few hours. Sometimes it can take up to 30 days to fully feel the effects and get significant relief.
